Alternate-Universe SpongeBob is a character who appears in the episodes "Squid's Day Off," "Something Smells," "The Algae's Always Greener," "Wet Painters," "Chimps Ahoy," "Ghost Host," "The Abrasive Side" and "SpongeBob LongPants."


He first appears in the episode "Squid's Day Off," saying, "I will destroy the Krusty Krab!" as the result of Squidward's paranoia that SpongeBob will damage the Krusty Krab.

In "Something Smells," SpongeBob's breath smells so bad that his alternate-universe counterpart breaks the mirror.

Alternate-Universe SpongeBob may have been the one Plankton visited in "The Algae's Always Greener."

In "Wet Painters," Alternate-Universe SpongeBob is seen through Mr. Krabs' mirror when SpongeBob tries to figure out how to prevent Mr. Krabs from seeing the permanent paint he and Patrick got on his first dollar, but he leaves when Mr. Krabs comes home, then telling SpongeBob that he's on his own.

In "Chimps Ahoy," Patrick invented his own universe with Alternate-Universe SpongeBob in it, but SpongeBob thought it was just a mirror.

He also gets eaten by a monster in "Ghost Host" as part of a long string of jokes told by the Flying Dutchman to scare SpongeBob.

His most recent appearance is in "SpongeBob LongPants," where it is probably the same character that appears in "Wet Painters" and "Chimps Ahoy."

SpongeBob and Alternate-Universe SpongeBob are a lot alike. However, his alternate-universe counterpart acts more dramatic than usual in "The Algae's Always Greener." Contrary to the main-universe SpongeBob, Alternate-Universe SpongeBob appears to have a bit of a rude streak; in "Wet Painters," he refuses to help SpongeBob, and in "Something Smells", he breaks the mirror he's in upon smelling SpongeBob's rancid breath, alluding to suicide.

Patrick Star

They appear to get as Alternate-Universe SpongeBob says he thought Patrick's idea to another universe was a good idea in "Chimps Ahoy."

Alternate-Universe Patrick

As Alternate-Universe Patrick is similar to Patrick, and Alternate-Universe SpongeBob is similar to SpongeBob, it is assumed that they are friends as well.


  • "You're on your own pal." to SpongeBob
  • "Well, I thought it was a pretty good idea." in a Scottish accent to Patrick
  • "I'm gonna make you eat those words, Krabs!" to Alternative-Universe Krabs
  • "Eh, eh, eh..." to Alternate-Universe Plankton
  • "I will destroy the Krusty Krab!" to Squidward
  • "No shirt, no shoes, no service!"
  • "Soiled it!"
  • "Phone call, Mr. Plankton"


  • Alternate-Universe SpongeBob has the most appearances out of all the alternate-universe characters.
  • Unlike most alternate-universe characters, Alternate-Universe SpongeBob isn't shown to be truly evil (though in "Squid's Day Off," he threatens to destroy the Krusty Krab).
  • "The Algae's Always Greener" is the only episode to feature Alternate-Universe SpongeBob without the main-universe SpongeBob.
