SpongeBob SquarePants as seen in BFBB is the first character the player will have control over, as well as the character with the widest moveset. SpongeBob appears in every level of the game, whereas Patrick and Sandy are only accessible during certain levels.
- Melee: bubble wand
- Bubble bash, a vertical attack
- Cruise bubble (earned after defeating Robo-Patrick in the Industrial Park)
The last two moves are mapped to controller buttons which only have use when the player is playing as SpongeBob.
