Lord Royal Highness (also known as L.R.H.) is the emperor of the lost city of Atlantis. He appears in the episode "Atlantis SquarePantis," and the video game, SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis as Atlantis' ruler who greets SpongeBob SquarePants and the crew upon their arrival. He also appears in the Atlantis SquarePantis book.


His skin is blue and his brain is clearly visible. His lips are large and red and his nose is similar to SpongeBob's. His hair is orange (like Bowie's was in real life in the mid-'70s and again in the mid-to-late '90s) and his left eye is colored green while the other one is blue.


He is usually polite towards others and has a positive attitude, until SpongeBob and Patrick Star pop the world's oldest bubble. This infuriates him and he orders the Atlanteans to seize them. He also appears clumsy, because he fell down the stairs to the royal palace. He has had visitors before because he says that people don't usually stay with the tour that long (as long as SpongeBob and Patrick did). When he finds Plankton, "a talking speck," as a replacement for the Bubble, he is no longer angry. 

Antagonistic side

His antagonistic side is revealed when SpongeBob and Patrick pop the oldest bubble. LRH orders the other Atlanteans to go after SpongeBob and the rest of the crew.

  • Welcome to Atlantis. I've been expecting you.
  • Allow me to introduce myself. I am Lord Royal Highness, but as my friends call me L.R.H.
  • Are you alright?
  • Help yourself to as much your pockets can carry.
  • Your friend Sandra sure is an excitable one.
  • But always remember to have fun!
  • Seize these hostile bubble poppers!
  • Look, a talking speck!
  • Dispose of this quickly. We can't survive anymore visitors like these.
  • I thought sponges were supposed to make life easier...


  • Lord Royal Highness's heterochromia iridium is a reference to a common misconception regarding his voice actor, David Bowie. It is often believed that Bowie had one blue eye and one green eye (as is present in his character's design), but in reality, Bowie suffered from anisocoria, the permanent dilation of the pupil, in his left eye; the condition was the result of a fistfight he got into when he was a teenager.
  • His initials may be a reference to Church of Scientology founder and science-fiction writer, L. Ron Hubbard.
  • Though his voice actor is a rock star in a musical episode, Lord Royal Highness doesn't sing a single note. This is likely due to the fact that David Bowie had mostly retired from professional singing after suffering a massive heart attack while on tour in 2004; Bowie wouldn't return to the music business until 2013, roughly six years after the premier of "Atlantis Squarepantis".
  • He and the other Atlantean Citizens resemble the Blue Meanies from the Beatles' animated music video Yellow Submarine.
