The Hash Slinging Slasher is the main character in a story told by Squidward on the episode The Graveyard Shift. Squidward told SpongeBob the story and convinced him that it was true. SpongeBob could not pronounce his name at first. Then Squidward told him that it was all a joke. Later that night, it seemed that the story was becoming true. The Hash Slinging Slasher, or what they thought was him, came to apply for a job at the Krusty Krab.
- Technically he does exist.
- The inside of his nose must be red, as when he appears to have eyes, they are red.
