Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots (also known as SpongeBob and Friends: Attack of the Toybots in Europe) is the 2007 sequel to the 2005 Nicktoons crossover game Nicktoons Unite! and the 2006 game Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island. It is also the prequel to the game SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom, which was released in 2008. It was released on the Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, and Game Boy Advance.
There are eight playable characters on all platforms from Nickelodeon television series, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Danny Phantom, The Fairly OddParents, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, and Tak and the Power of Juju.
The opening intro for the game features Professor Calamitous on a game show called the Biggest Genius. Calamitous states that by feeding fairies Krabby Patties, they can emit a magical gas that, combined with Ghost energy, can be used as a form of fuel for his army of "Toybots."
As the opening credits are shown, the game itself opens with Patrick Star and SpongeBob SquarePants delivering a truckload of several million Krabby Patties to a Krabby Patty processing and toybot factory. Upon arriving at the factory, a robot sucks up all the Krabby Patties, and Patrick, unintentionally, in the process. SpongeBob chases after the robot, and eventually finds his way into the factory.
After finding his way through the factory, SpongeBob finds Patrick's vacuum-packed like a toy. After freeing him, they meet Tak, of the Pupununu People, who claims to have been abducted and scanned. They later find Timmy Turner and Jimmy Neutron, who also claim to have been abducted and scanned. They meet the Chad-Bot, a robot who is the Professor's helper. They ask him to use something to contact Danny Phantom and commands them to find more master models for his collection.
After collecting the master models, Jimmy contacts Danny, who says that Calamitous' invading toy army took over his house to use the energy coming from the Ghost Zone and its surrounding with robots, that looks like him and Sam. So Jimmy tells Danny and Sam to meet him and the other Nicktoons at the Amity Park Evil Toy Co. outlet and when they get there they see that Jimmy made some Mech-Suits that will let them fight the Big Tin Robots. After defeating a giant evil toy Jimmy head, they head back into the factory where they find some more master models.
Chad-Bot tells them that Saucer-Men toys capture heroes, so the Nicktoons go through the factory, collect the rest of the master of master models, and destroy the Saucer-Men toys. Then, the Nicktoons head to Fairy World. They then free Jorgen, who destroys the fairly harvester, and then get back into the Mech-Suits to the Professor's lair.
They get to where the opening intro of the game was and the winner of the Biggest Genius is none other than Chad-Bot himself, who tells Calamitous' plan to abduct the best characters from every universe lead to his victory and the game ends with Chad-Bot cutting Calamitous' mustache off with an electric shaver.

- Around the year this game was released, Richard Horvitz was no stranger to video games, having lent his voice to The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy: the game, which was released a few months earlier, and Psychonauts, which was released two years ago.
- This game reunites with many people who were known in many different shows.

- This error is not present in the handheld versions, as Tak had met Jimmy beforehand in the Nintendo DS version, while in the Game Boy Advance version, the first level doesn't take place underwater.

- Patrick is seen in the Game Boy Advance cover of the game depsite being not playable.
