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. It eventually become a reality, in the Truth or Square video game.
    • There's an unused level found in the Gamecube version, said unused level is what was 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. 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.
