Role in series
Patrick skates on the grill using two sticks of butter.
A stick of butter is one of the ingredients used in
SpongeBob and Patrick create a sculpture of butter in the form of Squidward's likeness.
Patrick creates a game called
Rock, Paper, Butter, a parody of Rock, Paper, Scissors, and wants Squidward to participate. Due to the latter's refusal, the butter starts to melt in Patrick's hand, leaving him no choice but to eat it.
SpongeBob, having shrunk, uses two sticks of butter to skate across the
Krusty Krab grill.
Patrick puts two slices of bread into SpongeBob's toaster, spreads the butter onto the toaster, and eats it.
SpongeBob uses butter as one of the ingredients to sabotage
Larry's power shake, but instead of drinking it, he spreads it on his muscular body like tanning lotion.
Butter plays the same role in "The Fry Cook Games" and "The Incredible Shrinking Sponge" by Patrick and SpongeBob respectively.
Butter is also mentioned in " The Abrasive Side" when Abrasive SpongeBob tells Larry that he should use a bowl of butter in place of sun-tan lotion.
