** Amusingly enough, much of the claims that the characters' make about their horrifying abilities are [[ShownTheirWork accurate to real marine biology.]] The horrifying real-life feeding habits and [[HealingFactor regenerative capacity]] of starfish [[spoiler:and sponges]] are crucial to the comic's plot, and depicted fairly accurately.
** Patrick [[spoiler:being tortured for a regenerating source of Krabby Patty material by Mr. Krabs]] is too edgy to ever happen in nature, right? Wrong. The Harlequin shrimp [[https://www.reddit.com/r/TheDepthsBelow/comments/lva69p/harlequin_shrimp_use_their_spatulalike_claws_to/ has been known to]] "farm" starfish by eating off all their arms so they can't crawl away and waiting for their limbs to regenerate to feed on them again. Sometimes the shrimp will even force-feed the starfish algae to [[AndIMustScream keep it alive while immobilized as a living meat factory]].
