"Super Evil Aquatic Villain Team Up is Go!" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season 8. In this episode, Plankton and Man Ray join forces.



Plankton finds Man Ray in a phone book.

In the beginning of the episode, SpongeBob is walking down a sidewalk and singing on his way to work, when suddenly, he hears a crying sound. He looks down an alley, where Plankton is crying. He explains to SpongeBob that he was crying because one of his inventions backfired again. SpongeBob then asks what the device was, and Plankton says it was a doomsday device. However, it did nothing but spark and fall apart. SpongeBob suggests hiring a friend to fix it, so Plankton looks in the phone book and finds Man Ray, but it is under "fiends" instead of "friends." Plankton does not care, so he meets Man Ray and explains the plan.

They then go to the Krusty Krab and demand the secret formula. When Mr. Krabs says that they will never get the formula of making Krabby Patties, Man Ray says that he thought it was a formula for world domination, but Plankton explains that if "you control the fast food chain, you can control the world." Plankton then has Man Ray try a Krabby Patty to prove it, but Man Ray becomes addicted to them and demands more Krabby Patties without letting Plankton eat a single one. Meanwhile, SpongeBob tries to get Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy for help, but he fails many times. As he finally gets to them, he tells them, but they tell him that they cannot help him, leaving SpongeBob to be his own hero. SpongeBob then comes back to work to assist the tired Squidward and to "be his own hero." He makes more Krabby Patties, in which Man Ray gets fat from. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy then come and arrest him, thus leaving Plankton to pay the bill for the Krabby Patties, and the episode ends with Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob, and Squidward all having a big laugh.
