* MothMenace:
** In ''Night Light'', Spongebob and Patrick fill Spongebob's house with an unholy amount of nightlights and other various light sources (like a searchlight and even a lighthouse). As a result, the entire house emits a very strong light that attracts the Moth, the most dangerous archnemesis from Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy. Don't underestimate his less-than-behe''moth''ic size: he is powerful enough to lift Spongebob's entire house plus the lighthouse ''all at once''.
** The episode ''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/SpongebobSquarepantsS2E25WormyPattyHype Wormy]]'' is an interesting example, since it is not the titular butterfly that is dangerous or unusual ''per se'', but the reaction everyone has when facing it. After taking care of a caterpillar for a day, Spongebob and Patrick discover in the morning that Wormy disappeared and instead, they see a butterfly (keep in mind that the two are ''underwater creatures'', so they are completely clueless when it comes to insect metamorphosis). They are convinced the butterfly is a friend-devouring monster (and the GrossUpCloseUp of the creature is no helping matter) and go on warning the town about it, which sends the Bikini Bottomites in a frenzied panic which concludes with the town completely in ruins. Meanwhile, the only thing the adult Wormy does is fluttering aimlessly, like a normal butterfly would.

** In "Pickles", Bubble Bass makes an order using a string of complicated HashHouseLingo. Squidward gives up trying to write it all down about halfway through, and dryly replies "We serve ''food'' here, sir."

* OneEpisodeFear:
** In one episode, Spongebob is afraid of clowns, which is weird as he's never been afraid of them before or since and has even liked them in "Krabby Land".
** In "One Course Meal", Plankton is afraid of whales, which has only shown up in that episode.

* NakedPeopleTrappedOutside: Both subverted and played straight in "Feral Friends". The episode's premise is that Neptune's Moon makes its centennial orbit around Bikini Bottom, in the process causing the inhabitants to devolve into non-sapient sea life for two hours. Because the transformations cause them to lose their clothes in the process, everyone is left naked after they return to normal. [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick aren't shown to be bothered by their sudden nudity, but Larry the Lobster briefly panics before covering himself with a flower, while Mr. Krabs, Mrs. Puff, Squidward, and Pearl run away while covering themselves in embarrassment the instant it dawns on them that they are naked in public.
