List of characters

Man Ray is the second major archenemy of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, the first being the Dirty Bubble. He first appears in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III."


He is a parody of Aquaman's arch villain, Black Manta.

Man Ray is an anthropomorphized Manta Ray with a blue helmet shaped like the head of a manta ray and red skin. His gloves, boots, and Speedo are a deep blue color. He has no head under his helmet.

Abilities and traits

Man Ray possesses typical superhero combat skills, and seems to have the power to shoot destructive lasers from his hands.

In his first appearance, he steals some of Mermaid Man's weapons, so it's possible the lasers he shoots are built into his gloves and aren't actually a natural superpower.


Man Ray first appears in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III." He was trapped in tartar sauce by Mermaid Man until Patrick frees him. He is about to destroy SpongeBob and Patrick, but he has the Tickle Belt so he can't do anything.

  • Despite abandoning his evil ways during his debut, he joins E.V.I.L. in a later episode. In "Shuffleboarding," he actually does retire.
  • He is very susceptible to the Tickle Belt.
  • Oddly, he can remove his head and is still able to talk. This was shown in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III" and "Shuffleboarding."
  • In "Super Evil Aquatic Villain Team Up is Go!," Man Ray is seen restocking canned bread into a vending machine.
  • He is named after the surrealist of the same name.
