** Also referred to on "Sleepy Time". When SpongeBob meets Gary in the dreamworld, the now erudite Gary tries to explain to him the concept of dreams as a view to another world.

** 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.

* 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''.
