Shiny Objects[1] are collectible flower-shaped items in the video games Battle for Bikini Bottom and Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated. They serve as currency in the game. Unlike other collectible items in the game, Shiny Objects are dropped by tikis, robots, etc., and therefore are virtually limitless in quantity.


In Battle for Bikini Bottom and Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated, they are by far the most numerous collectible. The values of each kind of Shiny Object are as follows:

  • Red: 1
  • Yellow: 2
  • Green: 5
  • Blue: 10
  • Purple: 50

Shiny Objects are spawned from defeated tikis, robots, or found scattered around the level. Those generated are limitless. Those scattered can only be collected once. Regardless, shiny red objects are found almost exclusively in situations where there is little chance of dying; Yellow, Green, and Blue are ambiguous and can be found in either normal or dangerous situations; Purple is found exclusively in dangerous situations. The maximum amount of Shiny Objects the player can hold up to is 99,999.

Shiny Objects can be traded for golden spatulas via Mr. Krabs, fed to clams to open new areas, or directly to doors/gates for the same purpose.
