* PermanentlyMissableContent: If you do not collect all of the doubloons within the pier stage of Goo Lagoon before the Flying Dutchman tears it apart, then those doubloons will be gone. This could potentially make the game UnwinnableByDesign if you didn't collect enough of them.



* PlotCoupon: The SPONGEBOB letters are needed to be collected in order to advance through the game. Seven of the nine letters are scattered around the levels[[note]]with some of them being held by [=NPC=]s who will only give the letter to you once you complete a task for them[[/note]] while the other two are obtained by collecting a certain amount of Gold Dabloons and Jellyfish. Once you find them all in a level, you will be transported into a puzzle minigame where you have to arrange the collected letters into a complete image of a treasure chest. Then once that's done, you have to use the treasure hunting gear to find one of The Flying Dutchman's lost treasures.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: The Flying Dutchman refusing [=SpongeBob=]'s TakeMeInstead, taking Gary, going after [=SpongeBob=]'s other friends who had nothing to do with freeing him from the chest even though he's only supposed to go after those who free him and disturb his treasure, and later coming back to try and take [=SpongeBob=] anyway.


* PlayableMenu: The main menu puts [=SpongeBob=] in the Krusty Krab's kitchen, at which point he can access the menu options by walking to various parts of the area: the grill for New Game, the door to the kitchen for Load Game, the condiment section for Options, and a storage cabinet for Extras.

* PointOfNoReturn: Once you enter [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon The Flying Dutchman's Graveyard]], you cannot return to Bikini Bottom. Likewise, once you beat [[FinalBoss The Flying Dutchman]], reloading the same save file again will only return you to the final boss so the only way to replay the levels again is to start a new game.

* FetchQuest: The game itself is one big fetch quest due to the amount of collectables you need in order to proceed, which includes the Gold Dabloons, the Jellyfish, and the SPONGEBOB letters. Collecting every last collectable is critically essential for OneHundredPercentCompletion.
* GameBreakingBug: The UsefulNotes/{{PS2}} version has one that causes the game to freeze right in the middle of loading screens. Thankfully, the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGamecube Gamecube]] version has been spared from this bug.

* {{Retcon}}: It appears this Flying Dutchman is completely different from the one from the original show. Never in the show does the Dutchman say anything about eternal slumber or prison bottles. Likewise, in the game's opening, he outright states he's never met "a talking cheeseblock" [[note]][=SpongeBob=][[/note]] before, despite their many encounters in the show.
* ShoutOut: Collecting the SPONGEBOB letters is fairly reminiscent to collecting the KONG letters in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' games.
* TakeMeInstead: [=SpongeBob=] pleads the Flying Dutchman to take him instead of Gary in the beginning of the game. It doesn't work.

* AdultFear: [=SpongeBob=]'s reaction to the Flying Dutchman capturing Gary is surprisingly realistic for a game like this.

* AdaptationalJerkass: Larry the Lobster. In the series, he's a nice guy and doesn't mind [=SpongeBob=] at all, but in the game, he comes off as fairly selfish and a jerk. He refuses to give [=SpongeBob=] the letter on his championship belt and runs away from him because he fears that other people might see him together with [=SpongeBob=]. It's almost as if he took a little dose of Squidward's personality.
