SpongeBob is famous for being extremely kind and loving towards others. Sure, it can be very annoying in the process, but never in a malicious way. Instead, your optimism and childish energy can be overwhelming for others to handle at times. However, with all of this said, it’s always especially weird to see him being mean to others on the show. Although quite rare, these moments are often the ones that stick in the minds of audience members.
In fact, there are certain instances in the series where he is downright horrible to those around him. Now, it is understandable that the characters have their negative points, since they cannot be perfect. However, SpongeBob can really take him to the extreme where it becomes impossible to justify his actions. Although he will always be remembered for being a gentle and caring soul, fans shouldn’t ignore his worst moments either.
10 When he becomes king of karate
When SpongeBob is considered King of Karate, he and Sandy go to Karate Island for his ceremony. However, there is something terribly fishy about this, as SpongeBob, of course, is not very good at the sport, while Sandy is quite professional.
When Sandy expresses concern, SpongeBob not only ignores him, but starts acting rude. He claims that Sandy is jealous of his achievement and is quite pompous in the process. This leads Sandy to leave him alone on the island, but he soon returns to save him when it turns out to be a trap.
9 When he calls Patrick a stupid star
SpongeBob gets Patrick to enroll in boating school after the latter tells him he misses him when he leaves. However, this turns out to be a mistake, as Patrick gets SpongeBob in trouble by continuing to talk to him. When SpongeBob yells at him after he refuses to get off his back, this leads to him losing one of his golden stars.
SpongeBob confronts Patrick about this after class, but it leads to chaos. When Patrick says who cares about a stupid star, SpongeBob goes on to say that he is one, which is too extreme for the circumstances. Although Patrick is certainly not a saint, SpongeBob really is mean with that insult.
8 When he makes the nasty patty with Mr. Krabs
After a health inspector visits the Crusty Krab, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs worry that he is an imposter, as they see one on the news. As a result of this, they decide to give her the nasty burger, which is as gross as it sounds.
When preparing the burger, SpongeBob drops it in the toilet and also puts seahorse radish on it, which he says is disgusting. It also turns out that the health inspector is actually a real one, so they do this heinous action for literally no reason.
7 When he insults Patrick at the Fry Cook games
When Patrick is hired by Plankton for the Fry Cook Games, a rivalry is created between him and SpongeBob. In fact, the bad blood between the two is actually started by SpongeBob, as he claims that Patrick is not qualified to be a fry cook like him.
The two begin to get into a verbal argument, and this leads to SpongeBob making fun of Patrick for not having ears. She also teases him for being pink. However, SpongeBob’s true level of arrogance and rude demeanor is far out of character.
6 When teasing texas
When SpongeBob makes fun of Texas, it’s actually meant to be a way to get Sandy to follow him to the Krusty Krab. Sandy, of course, is about to return to Texas, as she feels immense homesickness. However, SpongeBob has a big party for her to try to get him to stay.
However, the insults he makes about his home state are certainly not pleasant. With Patrick, the two continually call Texas stupid, while even saying that people are too. This leads to Sandy chasing them to the restaurant, where she is shocked and really moved by the party. She stays, but SpongeBob is really bad beforehand.
5 When he insults Squidward for not working
After Squidward is unfairly fired after Mr. Krabs accuses him of stealing his first penny, he is left homeless. This leads SpongeBob to let him live in his house, which is immensely nice of him.
However, when Squidward takes advantage of SpongeBob’s hospitality, he provokes extreme anger in the latter. He doesn’t handle it well, as he keeps referencing Squidward not working and tells him to get a word search job and even a puppet show. At the end of the day, he’s steps too far from SpongeBob.
4 When he drowned Mr. Krabs
Later in this episode, SpongeBob runs over to the Crusty Krab to demand that Squidward get his job back. Mr. Krabs refuses, however, as even after SpongeBob tosses a bunch of dimes at him, he claims that nothing can replace his first dime.
This leads to SpongeBob choking Mr. Krabs and lifting him up into the air. He yells at him, saying that Squidward is driving him crazy at home. The worst part about all of this is that Mr. Krabs’ giant first penny ends up falling out of his pants, so all of this could have been prevented.
3 When he pushes Gary too hard
After Squidward adopts a snail, Snellie brags about how he’s going to win the big snail race. He then insults Gary for being far less superior than Snellie, which, in turn, prompts SpongeBob to enroll him in the race.
However, when he trains Gary, SpongeBob’s pride causes him to push his pet too far. By the time of the race, Gary is too tired to even compete. When he doesn’t start on time, SpongeBob yells at him and tells him he’s messing it up. When Gary’s eyes and shell literally explode, SpongeBob realizes the gravity of his actions, but it’s too late.
two When he makes jokes at Sandy’s expense
In this episode, SpongeBob tries his comedy act on the Crusty Krab, the audience hates him. It leads to a lot of boos, but SpongeBob would entertain them by joking around at Sandy’s expense.
When Sandy asks him to stop them, he pretends that he will, but then he keeps them going. It even leads the Bikini Bottom folks to treat her differently as they assume she’s stupid because she’s a squirrel.
1 When he ties up Mr. Krabs thinking he’s a robot
After watching a horror movie, SpongeBob is petrified by robots. This ends up being a major problem, as, after hearing Mr. Krabs request a song using beep-bop sounds, he thinks it’s one.
This leads him to convince Squidward as well, so the pair tie up Mr. Krabs and cause him great damage. SpongeBob even slaps Mr. Krabs across the face a couple of times, too. However, they discover that he is, in fact, the real Mr. Krabs at the end of the episode.
