In addition to the ten main characters, SpongeBob SquarePants has over 300[1] background characters. They are identified by the artists and animators with individual model numbers. These model numbers correspond to when the characters were designed in production. The following is a list of background characters, sorted by their model numbers.

"Squeaky Boots," the second episode made for season 1 in production order (code #102), was the first produced episode to feature incidental characters. As a result, the first row of incidentals (incidentals 1-11) were all first designed for "Squeaky Boots."

Some characters, such as Incidental 62 and Incidental 70, were removed from the model sheets during revisions in season 2. Several incidentals with later numbers appear in episodes before others with earlier numbers; this is due both to many SpongeBob episodes being worked on at the same time, like most animated series, and to numbers not necessarily being assigned in order of appearance, as with Rock Bottomites from season 1 having later numbers than an out-of-appearance-order assortment of characters from up through season 11.

A group of basic background characters.

Regular Incidentals

These Incidentals have no prefix letter, and they are the most commonly used background characters in the whole series. They also each have their own incidental type with the currently known types being hotdog, weirdo, inbetween, elderly, and deep sea.

"Teen" Incidentals

The "Teen" incidentals are a group of teenage fish that were designed for "The Chaperone." All of the males (Teens 1-6) are well dressed anchovies with hair and they each have at least one alternate model. Most of the females (Teens 7-15) are usually portrayed as teenage friends of Pearl. They are normally portrayed as teenagers but they have also been portrayed as adults in many episodes as well. They can also commonly be seen among “F” incidentals as well.

Trivia

  • Most background characters have two models: one for their daytime color palette and another for their nighttime color palette. For example, Fred's palettes are labeled "001-DAY" and "001-NIGHT."
  • According to Jay Lender, several of the original incidental characters were removed from the model sheets during the second season after their models were lost in the shuffle during revisions.[4] As a result, many episodes featuring them in storyboards (such as "Christmas Who?" and "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III") had them replaced with different character models.
    • The numbers for these characters are known from storyboards. Specifically, numbers 33, 35, 61, 62, 70, and 71 are known from the storyboards of "Christmas Who?."
    • It's been proven possible that if a removed incidental has its model retrieved it could return to the show and stay. For example, Incidentals 96 and 97 returned by "Dirty Bubble Returns" and Incidental 33 returned by "Patrick's Tantrum."
  • Fred, Scooter, Old Man Walker, and Sandals are currently the only incidental characters with official confirmed names by the SpongeBob crew. Other characters have been given various names throughout the show, but these are limited to single instances and do not carry over to other episodes.
  • The models for Incidentals 30 and 30A are redraws of the anchovies from "Help Wanted." Unlike the anchovies in "Help Wanted," these incidentals are solid blue and brown, and the brown anchovies have blue shirts (sometimes tank tops) instead of white ones.

Gallery

Each incidental has a separate character model. At various points in the show's production, the models have been compiled onto model sheets, separate from the Main Model Pack also used by the animators. One sheet for the regular incidentals divided them by their appearances. For example, tall rounded fish were grouped together under a category called "hotdogs."

Another compilation sheet instead lists the characters in order of number. The sheet has gaps for the numbers of removed incidentals, who are incorrectly labeled as "non-existant"[sic]. Vincent Waller uploaded the pages of this sheet to his Twitter account in February 2018, and Adam Paloian uploaded photographed sheets to his Twitter account in April 2019.

The character models for the Rock Bottomites were in the files of the PS1 version of SuperSponge. Adam Paloian uploaded to his Twitter Incidental F4's character model on August 1, 2017, two hillbilly sheets in November 2018, and three Empty Head Society sheets in January 2019.

On October 5, 2020, the official SpongeBob Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram each made a post with two images with the prompt "Which Background Character is Your Favorite?" Surrounding the question in both images are model poses and the numbers for numerous Incidentals, seemingly taken from the most recent version of the model sheet, though Incidentals 3-5 are number-swapped with Incidentals 6-8. There are various differences with Incidentals 6, 16, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30A, 36, 38, 86, 87, 106, 114, 115, 116, 118, 119, 154, 156, and 157.

On December 8, 2020, Adam Paloian posted on Twitter several images of models, including his designs for the "PM" Incidentals, "C" Incidentals and "CM" Incidentals, revealing various unused models at the same time.
