Video game

The Yellow Avenger is a SpongeBob SquarePants video game that was released for the Nintendo DS in 2005 and for PlayStation Portable in 2006.


SpongeBob acquires Mermaid Man's powers when he wears his belt. Unfortunately, SpongeBob puts the Dirty Bubble into a washing machine, which causes him to split into countless dirty bubbles! SpongeBob has to stop villains such as Man Ray, the Sinister Slug, Jumbo Shrimp, Atomic Flounder, and the Dirty Bubble, using Mermaid Man's powers to save Bikini Bottom.

The story is divided into Acts, each with a different villain trying to wreak havoc on Bikini Bottom. Man Ray wants to flood Goo Lagoon, Sinister Slug's evil plan is to stop the talent show, Jumbo Shrimp, with the help of Plankton, creates a machine to shrink people the size of the latter on top of the Sea Needle, the Atomic Flounder causes chaos in the Industrial Park, and the Dirty Bubble returns to put the end of the Yellow Avenger with the machine the Jumbo Shrimp used in the third act and plans to hit SpongeBob with more little Dirty Bubbles.

  • This was the first SpongeBob video game to be released for both the DS and PSP.
  • The DS version was given much better reception from reviewers than the PSP version.
  • SpongeBob can go back to the Sea Needle, and explore there.
  • In this game, SpongeBob shows how to make Jellyfish Jelly.
  • After playing the game, the player unlocks a character viewer.
  • It is revealed in the game that the Sea Needle is the tallest building in Downtown Bikini Bottom.
  • SpongeBob can explore the Industrial Park from "Prehibernation Week," the Kelp Forest from "Club SpongeBob," and Rock Bottom from the episode of the same name.
  • The name is similar to "The Caped Avenger" from the Garfield comic strip.
  • The little Dirty Bubbles are red, and not the actual dirty brown color of the original Dirty Bubble.
  • The game doesn't save after the player beats it. This is so the final boss battle can be played an infinite number of times. This also means that the percentage complete of a game file will always be at 99% and it will never reach 100%.
  • Although this is the first SpongeBob DS game, it's not the very first video DS game SpongeBob has been featured in. The first DS game SpongeBob was featured in was Nicktoons Unite!, which was released in October 2005.
  • When SpongeBob is in his room, if one would look closely, one can see under Gary's Food Bowl is the "Town Scared" newspaper from "Pranks a Lot."
  • The PSP version was later re-released in the PSP Greatest Hits line in 2008. The same version was then re-released again in PAL countries as part of the PlayStation Essentials line.
  • SpongeBob can make water balls like the ones Mermaid Man makes in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy."
  • This is the first SpongeBob game to be Rated 7 by the Pegi.


  • This takes place after "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy" because SpongeBob and Patrick know Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy.
  • This takes place after "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III" because that is the episode in which Man Ray was released.
  • This takes place after "Pranks a Lot" because of the newspaper in SpongeBob's house.
