Trivia / SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom

  • Development Gag: Although the full Patrick's Dream level didn't make it into the full game, he still gets one where he just sort of gives you the Spatula, with him standing in a blank black room with a spotlight being the only immediate illumination. This is more likely a reference to the episode the world is based on, but it can double as Self-Deprecation.
  • The Other Darrin: Joe Whyte replaces Clancy Brown and Ernest Borgnine as the voice of Mr. Krabs and Mermaid Man, respectively.
  • What Could Have Been: A TON, and some of it is still left in the final game itself where you have to hack it and look a bit hard for such things.
    • The Concept Art for the game (unlocked by paying 40,000 shiny objects to the movie theater) shows art for a proposed Robo-Squidward boss. While it was dummied out of the console games, the Game Boy Advance version did include it as a boss.
    • Also, there's an unused level found in the Gamecube version, said unused level is what supposed to be Patrick's Dream. Said level also contain several early version of in-game objects. See it here
    • Originally, Robot SpongeBob had a phase where he had anchor arms, however, a model of the boss is still in game's files.
      • Now you can hack into those files and play that part of the game.
      • Sandy even has an unused pain animation in that level when you find a way to reach up to her and hit her.
    • Glove World would have been its own world, judging by an unused title seen in an early version of the pause menu.
    • Also, several other things even with the bosses:
      • Nearly almost EVERY important character has an unused walking animation of some sort.
      • Robo-Patrick has an unused idle animation where he gestures you to come forth with its free hand; "bring it on", pretty much?
      • The final boss's first phase has an unused shuffling-arm dance animation. Again, another possible idle animation.
