This is the page about Big Lenny. If you were looking for the article about the anchovy, then see Lenny.

Big Lenny is a large and dangerous jellyfish, and one of the only known jellyfish to kill its victims with a sting.

As SpongeBob reveals in the episode "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic," Dr. Manowar is the only fish who has survived an attack from Big Lenny. However, he did not escape unharmed, as he has a sore on the side of his face from the sting, which causes pain if it is touched.

Description

Not much is known about Big Lenny since he is only shown as a picture. However, it is shown that he has an evil, humanoid face (whether this is part of his actual appearance or just part of the artist rendering is unknown), and ten tentacles, at least according to Dr. Manowar's drawing. He is also colored pinkish-red.

Big Lenny is obviously a very dangerous creature, because the lump on Dr. Manowar's face is very large and still hurts, despite the passage of time.

Trivia

  • Unlike other jellyfish stings, Big Lenny's are highly lethal.
    • This is most likely because of the size of his stingers.
  • Big Lenny is the only jellyfish to have a face.
  • He is possibly based on the lion's mane jellyfish, the largest known species of jellyfish.
