Funny / SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom

  • "If I had a castle, I'd name it Fort Pattytown III. And Fort Pattytown III would have a big bake sale every Monday."
  • From the tutorial, when teaching about health:
    "SpongeBob will lose underwear if he gets hurt. Like this." (safe falls on SpongeBob)
  • While every other area in SpongeBob's Dream is long and elaborate, Patrick's is... a blank void with just him. He just gives you a Golden Spatula.
  • (in Machine Monotone) "No! You just destroyed my beautiful bride! We were supposed to get married next week!"
    • "...did he just say married?"
  • Mr. Krabs' humorously half baked reason to why SpongeBob should destroy the floating tikis outside the Sea Needle.
    Mr. Krabs: Uh...'cuz they were laughin' at you and calling you funny names.
    SpongeBob: What kind of funny names?
    Mr. Krabs: know. SpongeBob...ButtPants.
    SpongeBob: That's not very funny.
    Mr. Krabs: they said yer mom was ugly.
    SpongeBob: Ugly?!
  • The reference to "Squidward The Unfriendly Ghost"
    • In fact, pretty much any reference to an episode that was aired at the time the game was released.
  • In Rock Bottom, standing near the vending machine at the start will cause a cutscene to start where a bus drives up, idles for a moment, then drives right off, a clever and possible to miss reference to the episode "Rock Bottom".
  • Five words: Retirement Home Girls Gone Wild.
  • In the dream world, there was a level intended for Patrick that would've been dessert-themed. However, for reasons that aren't clear, it was cut. The developers, seeing a prime chance to make another reference to the show, just make Patrick's dream a pitch black room with him standing under a spotlight where he just gives you the golden spatula you would've had to work for without any strings attached. Though considering How hard the platform is to reach it in the first place, it was probably justified.
  • The "reason" you're collecting Golden Spatulas.
    Bubble Buddy: Becuase Spongebob...
    Spongebob: Well, I can't argue with that.
  • The fact you get a golden spatula for annoying the hell out of Squidward. Yes. And how to do it? "Just jump around like an idiot."
    • Not to mention you can also get a sock by destroying everything in Squidward's house and drawing a mustache on his portrait.
  • The Health extension item being golden underwear.
    • For that matter, the health pick up is Spongebob's Underwear, but you also play as Patrick and Sandy. Because of this, they are very clearly confused by how that even works.
      Sandy: Eww...I can't believe I'm wearin' SpongeBob's underwear.
      Patrick: I don't think SpongeBob's underwear fits quite right.
  • The "secret ending" where all the characters in the game sing the series' theme song...except for Squidward and Plankton, the former taking a moment to bang his head against the cash register.
