* KarmaHoudini: The Conch Shell itself; its cruelty towards the trio, ''ESPECIALLY'' towards Squidward, seems to imply it's quite malicious for an inanimate object.

* KarmaHoudini: The Conch Shell itself; its cruelty towards Squidward is not addressed by Spongebob or Patrick, despite the trio, ''ESPECIALLY'' towards Squidward, seems two of them wanting to imply it's quite malicious for an inanimate object.share their food with him.


* BigBad: The Conch Shell.

to:

* BigBad: The AmbiguouslyEvil / AmbiguousSituation: Considering that the Magic Conch Shell.Shell is supportive of Spongebob and Patrick, and that its command to do "Nothing" led to them getting food, and that another one led someone with a machete to them, it is a bit hard to tell if the Magic Conch Shell is genuinely useless/malicious and the benefits the characters get are just ContrivedCoincidence, or the Shell is just mean to those who doubt it and actually is correct that doing nothing will lead to them getting out of the Kelp Forest. Related to MaybeMagicMaybeMundane below.


Added DiffLines:

*MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Related to the ambiguity mentioned above, is the Magic Conch Shell genuinely [[TheOmniscient all-knowing]] as Patrick claims, or is it just a useless toy as Squidward thinks? The fact that no proper resolution is reached (see below), and that the picnic supplies falling and the other Club Member's Conch sending him to the rescue ([[SubvertedTrope sort of]]) may have been [[ContrivedCoincidence Contrived Coincidences]] leaves it a bit up in the air...

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: As a consequence of eating frozen processed meat (Krabby Patties) and inedible things like a gas stove, a spatula and even an old man, Mystery falls ill because that is not a proper diet for wild animals and Mr. Krabs catches [=SpongeBob=] having to nurse her with bicarbonate of soda.

Added DiffLines:

* StuffBlowingUp: Happens on two occasions.
** The first is when Squidward randomly explodes after crashing his bike and falling down a cliff.
** The second is when Scooter gets kicked into the distance by Mystery after mistaking her for a kiddie ride. He explodes on impact.


* IAteWhat: Two customers spit out their Krabby Patties when they overhear Mr. Krabs telling [=SpongeBob=] that "the kitchen is no place for a live horse."[[note]]Fast food chains in America such as Burger King and Wendy's have been accused of using horse meat in their burgers.[[/note]]

* IAteWhat: Two customers spit out their Krabby Patties when they overhear Mr. Krabs telling [=SpongeBob=] that "the kitchen is no place for a live horse."
* JerkassHasAPoint: It was ridiculously shallow for Mr. Krabs to compare the sentimental value of [=SpongeBob=]'s horse to a dollar bill, but he does make a good point that horses don't belong in fast food restaurant kitchens and they're much happier back in the wild.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold / TookALevelInKindness: Mr. Krabs' barking at [=SpongeBob=] to get rid of Mystery was blatantly rash and hostile. The second time Mr. Krabs sees [=SpongeBob=] with his seahorse, [=SpongeBob=] reasons as destructive Mystery can be he still loves her. Mr. Krabs then breaks it down more gently on why he should still release Mystery anyways, since she'd be healthier and happier back in the wild and not in a restaurant kitchen.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Mr. Krabs quickly is shocked to see Mystery in the kitchen. Instead of being alarmed that Mr. Krabs found out, [=SpongeBob=] tells his boss about Mystery suffering a stomachache due to having eaten too much.

* LaserGuidedKarma: Squidward is denied any food to eat as karma for refusing to submit to the Conch Shell itself.


-->'''Squidward:''' Doesn't that smell good, [=SpongeBob=]? You haven't eaten in days. How about you, Patrick? A big boy's gotta eat. Well, you can't have any. And do you know why, [=SpongeBob=]? Because your club president is a shell! If you had listened to me, you'd have food, shelter, and a roaring fire. But instead you listened to a talking clam... that tells you nothing! As if the answers to solve all your problems will fall right out of the sky! (laughs) [[TemptingFate Fall right out of the sky!]]\\

* {{Robinsonade}}: [=SpongeBob=], Patrick and Squidward go through this. But ironically this is only a bad thing for Squidward.

* ExactWords: Patrick warns Squidward against trying to join the club, as he "wouldn't fit in". Squidward climbs up and as it turns out, he literally could not fit into their treehouse as it was way too small. Patrick, who had been stuck up there with SpongeBob for three days is very quick to lampshade this.
