Hot sauce comes in a red bottle that has a yellow, rectangular label with the words "hot" written in red text and "sauce" written in green text with a picture of a red pepper in the middle. In "Bunny Hunt," the bottle does not have lettering.
Role in series
After Lenny sees SquidBob walking into the Krusty Krab kitchen, he thinks that it is a hallucination caused by the hot sauce he is using on his Krabby Patty and states that he should lay off the said hot sauce.
While playing with his patty family, SpongeBob flings a pickle, pretending that it is a Frisbee, into Squidward's eye on accident. Squidward tries to spray water into his eye to ease the pain, but instead squirts hot sauce into his eye, worsening his condition. His eye is set on fire and has to be put out by Mr. Krabs.
SpongeBob puts hot sauce all over his house to prevent the sea bunny from chewing his belongings, but this backfires, as the bunny licks the hot sauce off his stuff and breathes fire onto his belongings.
