List of characters

Barnacle Boy[2] is the sidekick of Mermaid Man. He, along with Mermaid Man, are superheroes and are both parodies of both Aqualad and Robin. Barnacle Boy was said to be 68 years old as revealed in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V." He first appears in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy."

Description

Barnacle Boy is thin, bald, has a very large nose (similar to and bigger than Squidward's), has puffy ears, a sailor hat, a black mask and a turquoise neckerchief. He also wears dark blue rubber gloves, boots, a red T-shirt, and rubber black shorts. Being younger, he is more sane and self-aware than Mermaid Man. However, Barnacle Boy is also more cranky and rude. He often calls Mermaid Man an "old coot." He is revealed to be 68 years old in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V." As his younger self, instead of a black mask, he wears glasses and is much taller. Also, as younger self, his neckerchief is space-control.

Barnacle Boy possesses powers similar to Mermaid Man, though he lacks the belt powers. Barnacle Boy also has "Sulfur Vision" (a form of Heat Vision), which Mermaid Man has never been shown to have. Like Mermaid Man, his powers do not work as well as they used to, mostly due to old age.

Despite being a senior citizen, Barnacle Boy is still treated like a child by his mentor, much to his disdain. In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V," when Mermaid Man orders a Pipsqueak Patty (a very small version of a Krabby Patty, intended for children) for Barnacle Boy at the Krusty Krab, they get into an argument which ultimately results in Barnacle Boy becoming a villain and forming a group called "E.V.I.L." (Every Villain Is Lemons) with Man Ray and the Dirty Bubble. After a protracted fight with Mermaid Man and the "International Justice League of Super Acquaintances (whose costumes and powers are assumed by the main characters of the show), which E.V.I.L. actually wins, he and Mermaid Man patch things up. Barnacle Man, as he likes to be called, gets a little more respect now (even though he mentions that an adult-sized Krabby Patty actually is too big for him).

Lights, Camera, Pants!

Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy appeared during a new episode being directed by Gill Hammerstein. In the new episode, Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy were falsely accused for destroying the Sand Stadium when it was actually stolen by the Sneaky Hermit. However, when they were sent to Bikini Bottom Jail, the prison warden told them what's really going on and lets them go so they can catch the villain, thus accidently letting the Dirty Bubble and Man Ray go free. Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy went to Goo Lagoon and to the Krusty Krab to find clues. When they went to the Chum Bucket, they discovered that Man Ray and the Dirty Bubble are using the mayor's child as their captive in an attempt to help the Sneaky Hermit's plans. They reluctantly made a truce with the villains and worked together to find the Sneaky Hermit with some help from an expert hunter from Jellyfish Fields. They managed to track down the hermit and foiled his plan of putting Bikini Bottom on his back so he can have a home. When the crisis ended, they returned to the Sand Stadium to continue watching the musical performance, to which Mermaid Man thinks it's a football game.
