** Virtually no love has been given to Patchy the Pirate, what with him being a [[StylisticSuck Stylistically Sucky]], extremely obsessive [=SpongeBob=] fanboy-cum-ExcitedKidsShowHost, particularly AND especially since the pre-movie days.

** Spongebob's line towards Mrs. Puff in "No Free Rides": "See you next Tuesday". [[note]]"See you" sounds like the letters 'C' and 'U' and the word "next" starts with the letter 'N' and "Tuesday" starts with 'T'. In other words, the four letters mentioned in those order spell the word "cunt". [[/note]]

%% Complete Monster: There are no characters who qualify for this trope. It's a kids show that plays Comedic Sociopathy for laughs. It cannot have CMs.

** Mr. Krabs, as mentioned above under TheScrappy, although it has unfortunately almost become commonplace in the fandom to dislike his post-first movie self. In the first season, Mr. Krabs is a fatherly figure to [=SpongeBob=] with a passion for sailors/pirates who loves collecting money. His money-loving side completely consumes his character in later episodes to the point where cheapness is his single defining characteristic. Many fans find this jarring, since his cheapness has led him to commit many immoral actions. It's especially bad when you consider that Stephen Hillenburg said [[http://nieonline.com/coloradonie/downloads/minipage/minipage7.15.15.pdf in an interview]] that he developed Krabs as a fatherlike sailor character and only added his money-loving trait later on "to give him more personality." It worked a little too well now that his entire personality revolves around money.

*** Did Spongebob betray Plankton at the end of "One Coarse Meal" out of loyalty to Mr. Krabs or did he play both Krabs and Plankton to teach Mr. Krabs a lesson and get back in his good books at the same time?

** Patrick is notorious for being a bad, selfish friend to Spongebob in the post-movie seasons. It's often ignored by pre-movie fans that despite Patrick being a fellow troublemaker and likeminded individual, he's always been a pretty bad, two-faced friend to Spongebob, even in the pre-movie seasons. Patrick goes insane and tries to kidnap Spongebob when he goes to live with the jellyfish ("Nature Pants"), tries to '''murder''' him and a bunch of strangers when he doesn't get anything for Valentines Day ("Valentines Day"), abandons him in Rock Bottom ("Rock Bottom"), enjoys convincing Spongebob he's hideous way too much ("Something Smells"), abandons their plan to be 'grown-up' and leaves him hanging for some cookies ("Grandma's Cookies"), tries to sell Spongebob out to the cops when he can't con him out of his last chocolate bar ("Life Of Crime"), rubs Gary choosing him over Spongebob in Spongebob's face ("Dumped"), abruptly stabs Spongebob in the back so he can continue looking like the smart one to his 'parents' ("I'm With Stupid"), immediately tries to squeal on Spongebob to Mr. Krabs for swearing ("Sailor Mouth") and neglects their baby scallop Junior, leaving Spongebob with all the work raising their son for months on end while he sits on his butt watching TV ("Rock-A-Bye Bivalve"). [[note]] Though, Patrick was still well-meaning due to the fact that episodes such as "Something Smells" make him come off as more InnocentlyInsensitive than outright malicious. Also, some of his deeds make it clear that he does not do this on purpose. [[/note]] Patrick becomes a meaner person from Season 4 onwards, but Patrick turning on Spongebob on a whim as soon as his interests change is hardly out-of-character for him.

[[note]] Though, Patrick was still somewhat well-meaning due to the fact that episodes such as "Something Smells" make him come off as more InnocentlyInsensitive than outright malicious. Also, some of his deeds make it clear that he does not do this on purpose. However, Patrick has implied several times that he's not as oblivious as he acts and that he's ObfuscatingStupidity, so it's more that his characterization [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]].

** "The Bully" shows that quite often, when you're faced with a bully and your very ''life'' is in danger, authority figures will be of absolutely no help.

* FranchiseOriginalSin: While Mr. Krabs is often derided as having been [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] into an unlikeable jackass in post-first movie seasons, the flanderization actually started to set in early as seasons 2 - 3. At least two pre-movie episodes ("Krabby Land" and "Jellyfish Hunter") feature him in an unambiguously antagonistic role, conning children and using jellyfish for slave labor. In "Born Again Krabs", he sells Spongebob's soul for some pocket change, and in "Clams" a completely insane Mr. Krabs forces Spongebob and Squidward to be live bait for a giant clam, considering their lives expendable, so he can reclaim a dollar. The difference in those cases is that they usually ended with him [[LaserGuidedKarma getting what's coming to him]]. While in the rare cases where it didn't, he at least realized the error of his ways.
