Game Resources / GC / Sponge Bob Squarepants Battle For Bikini Bottom

This page attempts to document certain aspects of the Nintendo GameCube game, "SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom".

Glitches and Tricks

Hyper Jump:

This is a physics abuse trick that can be used to jump much higher than normal. It's done by converting speed to height by jumping. This trick is possible anywhere that you can reach a speed greater than walking speed and the amount of height given is dependent on how fast you're moving. One of the most notable uses of this trick is during the Robo-SpongeBob fight.

Ending Robo-SpongeBob Fight Early

Though no one is certain, there are theories on why this glitch can be done. The leading theory is you don't actually collect a spatula during the cutscene after the fight; the spatula is the cutscene trigger. So our guess is that when you do the final hit on Robo-SpongeBob, there is a trigger that warps you to the spatula, and then collecting the spatula triggers the cutscene of the fight ending. So if all that is true, then if you can collect the spatula without actually defeating the boss, the cutscene will still be triggered and you'll be able to end the fight early.

First hit Robo-SpongeBob twice so he will karate chop the platform. Once he does this, you can use Hyper Jump to get enough height to reach the spatula (located directly above the starting platform). By the way, the spatula has no textures, so you won't actually be able to see it, but you'll know you did it correctly when the cutscene activates early.

This is also useful for beating Robo-SpongeBob if you did not unlock the Bubble Bowl and Cruise Bubble by skipping Robo-Sandy and Robo-Patrick respectively.

Disable the Hand

  1. Have a taxi booth at the right of the screen.
  2. Go OoB with the booth still at the right.
  3. Once the hand starts dragging you away, press "A" to take the taxi.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3

Save Glitch

The "Saving Glitch" can be activated by pausing and warping to any area in the game during the Spatula collection cutscene.

Currently, the only known way to do this is collecting a Spatula in mid air and landing on some kind of kill plane; very few areas in this game actually allow you to do this without preforming some glitches before hand but thankfully with the "Disable the Hand" glitch we can activate the saving glitch on any bungee jumping Spatula in the game.

This glitch will remove all hand related kill planes. Sadly, the route used at this time is slower if the auto-save feature is on, thus removing any use of this glitch in speedruns.

Without disabling the hand

Similar to the above, but useless as you lose control your character.
