Starfish, or sea stars, are echinoderms that live in all of the world's oceans. They usually have five arms, but some species have more.
SpongeBob SquarePants features a starfish, Patrick, as one of the main characters. Stephen Hillenburg designed Patrick as a starfish to embody the animal's nature; according to Hillenburg, starfish look "dumb and slow", but they can become "very active and aggressive."
The characters that belong to this phylum are:
- Patrick Star
- Herb Star
- Margie Star
- Billy Bob Star
- Sam Star
- Primitive Star
- Pecos Patrick
- Patrick Revere
- Patrick Not-Star
- Dream Patrick
- Mini Patricks
- Mini Brain Patricks
- Maw Tucket
- Abominable Starfish
- New Patrick
- Ice Cream King
- Starfish minister
- Starfish mummy
The most common depiction of starfish in the show is a star and having five points on them. The top point represents the top of the head, the left and right middle points represent the arms, and the bottom two represent legs.
In the show, many of the starfish are represented as not having any head hair. They are also shown to not have noses. However, Patrick has been shown with one a few times due to negative continuity, and eventually gets one of his own in "No Nose Knows."
Starfish are shown to be pink in color in the show, with darker pink spots on them.
Patrick has a long family history linked to royalty. His family tree is also comprised of many different species, not just starfish.
