"Very handsome" Squidward

The second form, which requires Squidward to bash his head on the door after being in his first form, makes him appear muscular, as well as making his head and face even more humanoid. He also has acquired different clothing, his clothing appearing more like a leotard than a collared shirt. Overall, he appears to be what looks like an attractive man with six muscular tentacles.

Role in series

"The Two Faces of Squidward"

Squidward had become Handsome Squidward after hitting himself on the door. He became more handsome after a bit of doctor treatment. Handsome Squidward initially enjoyed being handsome, but that was not long after Handsome Squidward is constantly pestered by Bikini Bottomites about his "handsome" face.

Handsome Squidward soon hits himself on the door again, going into his second form, which is the more handsome form. Handsome Squidward turns back to normal Squidward after getting hit on one of the Krusty Krab poles. Then along with going back to normal Squidward is the same negative reputation of normal Squidward.

"Chatterbox Gary"

Handsome Squidward's second form can be seen as a painting in Squidward's house.

  • "The Two Faces of Squidward" has been banned in some countries, because both of the new "handsome" Squidwards, especially the second "even more handsome" Squidward, really terrified younger viewers.
  • Squidward's second "handsome face" became a famous meme and running gag on the internet, being especially used as a Facebook profile picture or on other social sites and galleries.
    • It has also been used in the One Direction fandom, where a mathematical formula shows One Direction's Zayn Malik being added to Squidward's "even more handsome" stage, resulting in one of the guys from The Wanted.
