The Sea Needle is the last building in Bikini Bottom after the Sneaky Hermit steals all the other buildings. He is unable to steal it because of a giant lock on it. After getting to it, he battles the Dirty Bubble, Man Ray, Mermaid Man, and Barnacle Boy on window washing platforms. He is defeated by Mermaid Man who uses some pepper, which the Sneaky Hermit is allergic to, causing him to fly into the sky and drop the buildings he stole.
