Ma Angler (or simply "Ma") is an overweight trenchbilly fish who appears in the episode "Trenchbillies."


She is an overweight dark teal trenchbilly fish with untidy brown hair that has multiple pink curlers in it, glasses, a big yellow shirt with orange frills and polka dots, light green fins, and a rod on her head with a lure at the end, which resembles a light bulb.

Role in episode

Ma Angler appears as the main antagonist of the episode. She is lazy and therefore is pushed around on her couch by somebody else. She says the gang will kill SpongeBob and Patrick if they don't pass the gang initiation ("To deem them worthy....of livin'!")

She then appears at the end of the episode at the Krusty Krab, having somebody shovel Krabby Patties into her mouth while Mr. Krabs watches. The trenchbillies think he wants to marry her, so the last scene is her and Krabs' "marriage."


  • Ma Angler is an anglerfish, fish which usually reside in ocean trenches or generally deep areas in the ocean. Anglerfish have appendages on their heads which have a light at the end for attracting prey.
  • Despite being an anglerfish, she is often lazy and lies on the couch at all times.
  • She is the third anglerfish to be seen. The first is the angler fish from "Rock Bottom" and the second is one of the Trench Monsters in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.
  • Her morbid obesity and lack of mobility may be a parody of Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars or Krystal Cuylar from the Squidbillies.
