Larry Luciano is a very old snail who has white eyebrows and a white mustache. He is dark mauve in color with an olive green shell. His underside is a similar shade of green. He can barely keep his eyelids open, most likely due to his age, but a dark orange eye color is discernible.
Larry Luciano was the first champion of Bikini Bottom's first annual snail race. Many describe him as a "Living Legend" and every year since he won the race he has ignited the flame that commences the race. He is very old and feeble. At the snail race, he creeps extremely slowly for two hours just trying to reach and light the flame, which makes the Mayor of Bikini Bottom later light it for him.
His name may be a reference to "Lucky" Luciano, a famous mafia crime boss.
His name may also be a reference to Rocky Marciano, the only undefeated boxing champion in history.
