The story of how Bikini Bottom was brought to its knees when its beloved Krabby Patty formula was stolen by me, Burger Beard.

Burger Beard is the main antagonist of the film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water as well as its many adaptations.


His hair and beard are both long and brown. He wears a blue jacket and pirate hat.


Burger Beard owns the Burgermobile which is a ship that doubles as a land vehicle to sell food, namely Krabby Patties. His main objective is to become a fast-food salesman, which he believed could be achieved by stealing the Krabby Patty secret formula using the Magic Book.

Role in movie

Burger Beard starts by stealing the Magic Book from the guardian skeleton on Bikini Atoll with the intent of rewriting the story of Bikini Bottom life in order to gain the Krabby Patty secret formula. Once gained, he travels to land to sell Krabby Patties from the Burgermobile.

His plan is foiled after an extended battle with SpongeBob and friends, who turn into superheroes, such as the Invincibubble, in order to save the secret formula and rewrite the story. Plank-Ton ejects Burger Beard back to the Bikini Atoll where Burger Beard is forced to sing the SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song along with the Seagull Crew, Painty the Pirate, and Bubbles.
