Video Game: The Spongebob Movie Game
aka: The Sponge Bob Square Pants Movie
"Vacuuming up manliness, even in the corners!"
-SpongeBob
The video game adaptation of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, made by the same company as Battle for Bikini Bottom. The plot more or less follows the film, but with a few changes made. While David Hasselhoff makes a guest appearance in the movie, The game doesn't actually refer to him by name.

There was also a PC version made, and it was a Point and Click Adventure game, as well as a GBA version, which was for the most part a 2D Platformer.

Contains examples of:

  • Airborne Mook: The Flinger and MERV enemies.
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Much like in the movie, Plankton takes over Bikini Bottom. Only this time it happens earlier, with Plankton statues and monuments being put as SpongeBob and Patrick escape town.
  • Badass Driver: SpongeBob and Patrick in the stages where you drive the Patty Wagon.
  • Bad-Guy Bar: The Thug Tug in the Bubble Blowing Baby Hunt level.
  • Big Door: The Welcome to Planktopolis... Minions level has a few.
  • Call Back: a robot from Battle for Bikini Bottom appears as trash at the beginning of Shell City, Dead Ahead.
    • SpongeBob refers to himself as "SuperSponge" in one quote, which is the name of another game
  • Casual Danger Dialog: SpongeBob and Pat have no problems acting manly and saying one-liners even in the most dangerous of situations.
  • Concert Climax: Spongebob stages one in the Krusty Krab for the final boss.
  • Convenient Enemy Base: SpongeBob and Patrick land near the Krusty Krab after escaping Shell City.
  • Disney Death: The Tearjerking scene where SpongeBob and Patrick dry out under a lamp is still here, but reduced to a cutscene with more comedy and no suspense whatsoever.
  • Evil Laugh: All nearby enemies laugh at you briefly If you take damage.
  • Expy: The enemies are, for the most part, expies of the robots from Battle for Bikini Bottom. All of the Plan Z Boxes are also similar to a type of Tiki from the same game: There's a standard one, a floating one, one that dissapears if you get too close, an exploding one, and one immune to regular attacks.
  • Flunky Boss: Dennis is this in both forms, as well as King Neptune after taking a few hits.
  • Mook Debut Cutscene: Each new type of enemy gets one.
  • Point of No Return: Most levels have one of these, although several have a way to get back to the beginning once you reach the end.
  • Oil Slick: The Flinger enemies shoot out goo that messes up movement and leaves a puddle that does the same.
  • Set a Mook to Kill a Mook: Defeating an enemy sends it flying back, damaging or defeating others behind it.
  • Slave Mooks: The mooks in the desert, landfill, and Planktopolis levels.
  • The Power of Rock: SpongeBob gets a move late in the game that allows him to fire a controllable sonic wave by playing a guitar.
