Queen Amphitrite is the queen of the sea and the wife of King Neptune. She lives along with her husband in a palace on the outskirts of Bikini Bottom. She is voiced by former Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham, also known as Posh Spice, and first appears in the episode "The Clash of Triton."
Queen Amphitrite is a medium-sized light blue mermaid with long, flowing black hair and purple hoop earrings. She has a blue tail and a belly button. She also wears a golden crown, a belt, a green bra with light purple clam shells, and two golden clasps on each of her wrists.
Her first unused design was drawn by Robertryan Cory, and it was slightly different. She had bigger eyes, a different belly button, and no bra; only clam shells. This design looks a lot more like her appearance in "Trident Trouble."
Role in series
"The Clash of Triton"
She is aware that the Krusty Krab is very popular and decides to have the 5,000th birthday party of Neptune there. She calls the restaurant and SpongeBob answers before telling Mr. Krabs, who does not believe it is her and insults her. After he hangs up, Amphitrite responds by zapping Mr. Krabs while still on the phone and appears at the restaurant, as he realizes it was really her and agrees to her request.
She tries all she can to cheer King Neptune up for his birthday. She knows their son, Triton, is very un-kingly and tries to be a normal boy, and that worries her since they are gods. She seems to have a negative attitude towards Mr. Krabs and continually zaps and scolds him.
She appears happy reunited with Triton at the end of Neptune's birthday party. She loves her husband very much. She kindly waves goodbye to the Bikini Bottomites in the end.
She is shown eating a Krabby Patty with Neptune and his guests.
King Neptune tells her a story about him and the Greek god Zeus. She laughs at it but then stops when she sees two Krakens approach. She digs into the sand and buries herself while Neptune tries to fight them.
