Eugene H. Krabs (Or commonly known as Mr. Krabs), born November 30, 1942, is the 5th protagonist of the SpongeBob SquarePants series. This page is focusing on seasons 1-5, 9-present of SpongeBob SquarePants, all 3 SpongeBob Movies, and Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years.

Why He Rocks

  1. He does show care about SpongeBob and Pearl other than Squidward, even if he prioritizes money more often than not.
  2. He tells SpongeBob some of his stories about his life, like for examples, he was in the navy, which that was in Shell of a Man and Pull Up a Barrel, his family tree are mostly pirates, which is in Grandpappy the Pirate, and he used to have been best friends with Plankton before, that's even in Friend or Foe.
  3. He acts like a real soldier as if he was still at war with another person, but doesn't take his job too seriously.
  4. In Whale of a Birthday, he actually promised Pearl that he would never destroy Pearl's 16th birthday even how much of a cheapskate he is.
  5. Unlike Squidward screaming at SpongeBob so much, he treats him like as if he was actually his son, and tells him what's best for him (most of the time).
  6. His best quotes are "Hello, I like money," "The money is always right," "Ahoy," "FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD?!," "I'll have your rear ends cut off, and mount it over me fire place," "We shall never deny a guest, even the most ridiculous request," "don't touch the THERMOSTAT", "That's the last straw!," "YOU'RE FIRED!!!!," and "Yes, Mummy."
  7. He and Plankton worked together to steal the secret Flabby Patty formula thanks to SpongeBob in The Other Patty.
  8. He helped SpongeBob go back to normal in "Mimic Madness."
  9. He gives SpongeBob and Patrick some best advice in episodes like Hooky and Sailor Mouth.
  10. He is very excellent at beating Plankton no matter what.
  11. He helped Squidward perform a band for the Bubble Bowl in Band Geeks.
  12. He sang a song duet with SpongeBob and about how much he missed him, and even cared in Welcome to the Chum Bucket.
  13. He was decent in seasons 9-12, before he fully redeems himself since the 13th season.
  14. He is still likable in Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years, in fact, his Kamp Koral counterpart is even greater than his regular self, since he was a nice chef at Camp Coral, and meet the young SpongeBob there, and SpongeBob inspired him to open a restaurant someday, which would be the Krusty Krab in the original series and SpongeBob became one of his employees. Also, when he became director of the camp and rename it to Kamp Koral, he was still a very nice guy who makes sure the campers have fun and stay safe.

Bad Qualities

  1. He was terribly flanderized in Seasons 6-8, with his obsession for money becoming his only character trait. He also became phsycopathic, arrogant and sadistic, in particular in the infamous episode One Coarse Meal, where he dresses as Pearl to scare Plankton to the point of the latter deciding to commit suicide.
    • During Seasons 9-12, some of his unlikable side was shown sometimes, such as the episode Out of the Picture, where he tries to kill Squidward in every way when an art critic says that Squidward's pictures would value if he was dead. He could be considered the main antagonist of that era.
  2. Even before & after Seasons 6-8, he can be pretty selfish and even incredibly evil in episodes like Jellyfish Hunter and Sandy, SpongeBob and the Worm.
  3. His greed gets the best of him in episodes like Krabby Land and Born Again Krabs (but he does regret his actions in the latter episode).
