* JackOfAllStats: [=SpongeBob=], of course!

* JackOfAllStats: [=SpongeBob=], of course!course! Not so much numerical "stats" (there are none to speak of in this game), but he has average mobility (can stall his descent once by attacking while airborne, while Sandy can lasso for a few seconds and Patrick can't do anything), the inferior ground-pound (cannot move after inputting, while Patrick can maneuver mid ground-pound and Sandy can't do it at all), and a flexible attack. Subverted later on when he unlocks his most potent attacks.



** Sleepytime will repel the Bubblebowl and will attack you with an instant-hit laser if you move too quickly around it. Sneak up on it or use the Cruise Missile or other projectiles to beat it.

** [[MookMaker Arf]] & Arf-Dawg: Another irritating tough mook, Arf is a cowboy robot that attacks from a long distance, sending exploding dog-robots at you. The only safe way to attack him is with the Bubble Bowl, as his dawgs will mow your health down well before you can reach him, and he takes more than one hit to take down, and he will swing his doghouse at you if you get too close. While the cruise bubble can kill him in one hit, using it makes you an easy target for his dawgs.
** [[TerribleTrio Tube-Let]], a trio of innertube donning robots. The bottom one uses a flamethrower to attack you, but hurting one of them causes the trio to start a self-destruct action, unless the top robot is destroyed in time.

* MightyGlacier: Patrick Star. Easily the worst jumper (He's the only character who can't attack in mid-air) but his main gimmick is picking things up and throwing them, with great accuracy.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In the Carnival section of Goo Lagoon, Mr. Krabs has Patrick take out the robot controlling the ticket booth. Unfortunately, Pat does his job too well, as his destruction of the ticket booth results in parts of the Carnival falling apart (albeit allowing him to progress further).

* OffWithHisHead: Played with during the Robo-Sandy boss fight. The first part is slamming on its body so that its head launches into the scoreboard, thus electrocuting it. The second phase involves Patrick knocking the head off, and then picking it up and throwing it into the fallen scoreboard. By the third phase, the robot wises up and grabs the head when its knocked off, but this allows [=SpongeBob=] to use his bubble-uppercut to strike it from below.

* PunnyName: One of the first mooks you meet in the game is "Ham-mer", a robot that uses a giant ham to whack you with. Lampshaded by [=SpongeBob=]. Patrick, however, dosen't get it.

* SquishyWizard: [=SpongeBob=]. He attacks aren't powered by his physical strength, but by his magic-like bubble powers. These also give him projectiles that the other characters lack.
* SuperDrowningSkills: No one can swim[[labelnote:*]]This is canon to the source material for Spongebob and Patrick, while Sandy's case is usually justified by any water she has to deal with being toxic in some way, like the waste at Industrial Park[[/labelnote]] so touching or landing in goo (the games answer to "water") will send them flying back to land, or drown them on the spot. Patrick, however, can use 'Freezy Fruits' to freeze goo to cross it.
* SuperStrength: Patrick displays this more than the other characters, as he is the only character who can lift up "Throw Fruit", tikis stunned robots and Freezy Fruits. His throwing arm is quite impressive, however.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: Most apparent if you are switching over from [[VideoGame/TheSpongebobMovieGame The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie Game]] to this or vice versa, since both games play similarly to each other. Because the aforementioned game is a later installment to this one, you'll find that some of [=SpongeBob=]'s and Patrick's moves are assigned to different buttons than what you would be normally used to which can sometimes lead to confusion on both ends.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: During the Robot Sandy fight, the Fish Announcer will be in the audience, next to King Neptune. Like in all boss fights, he pops up on the side of the screen to make a comment. If you face the Announcer during the fight and trigger a comment (Like taking a hit or dealing a hit.) both the pop-in and the one in the audience will have exact lip-sync for their comment.
