Before a video game is released, there may be several things not accessible or not accessible without Gameshark/Action Replay, in the final game. These are called Beta Elements.

Battle for Bikini Bottom

  • The Shiny Objects were originally different, and resembled crystals.
  • The Tubelet enemies originally had a laser.
  • The Kelp Forest was originally set in the daytime.
  • Sandy would originally slide on her back during the mountain levels instead of using a shellboard.
  • The proto also lacked special effects and sounds.
  • SpongeBob originally used a regular helmet for the Bubble Bash.
  • There was an unused soccer ball that was supposed to replace the watermelons. It was most likely a placeholder graphic.
  • A Robo-Squidward boss was also planned, but was taken out due to memory constraints, lack of time, or the fact that each character alternates boss fights. However, in the Game Boy Advance version, there is a Robo-Squidward.
  • Also on the Beta version, SpongeBob wasn't smiling.
  • Patrick headbutts enemies instead of hitting them with his belly.
  • Different characters were in different places.
  • There was an unused level in SpongeBob's Dream (Patrick's Dream), the theme of the level is dessert based, one of the cashews allow you to warp to "Patricks mind" which is what was used for Patrick's dream instead.
  • Not only were the characters in different places, in Patrick's Dream, there was The Larry the Lobster, some background characters and 2 robots (Chomp-Bot and Fodder)
  • There was a different Robot (you don't destroy it, also, it doesn't have an attack).
  • In the final boss fight against Robo-SpongeBob, there was originally supposed to be a third segment where the Robot gets anchor arms and is fought directly (it's shown in the cutscene, but the arms instead deflate). The robot also has a pair of legs and wears a speedo as well.
  • By hacking the game you can bring up an early pause menu screen. One of the levels are titled "Glove World" which could mean that it was planned to original be a level, but scrapped in the final version.
