Video game

Nicktoons Unite!, also known as SpongeBob SquarePants and Friends: Unite!, is a 2005/2006 Nicktoons crossover video game that features characters and levels from SpongeBob SquarePants, Danny Phantom, The Fairly Odd Parents, and The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. It has spawned three sequels entitled Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island, Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots, and SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom. Tom Kenny, David Kaufman, Tara Strong, Daran Norris, Susanne Blakeslee, and Debi Derryberry reprise their roles from their TV series.


One morning, when SpongeBob leaves his house, he sees that Plankton has taken over Bikini Bottom and used multiple tank-like vacuums to suck up some of the town's citizens. He sees Goddard coming out through a portal and receives a message from Jimmy. He follows Goddard through the portal to Jimmy's lab and meets Jimmy Neutron, Danny Fenton, and Timmy Turner. Jimmy tells his interdimensional guests about his new invention, the Universe Portal Machine. As he says, it allows people to travel to other worlds, but Prof. Calamitous has been spying on him, stole his idea and created his own Portal Machine. With it, he brought Plankton, Vlad Plasmius, and Mr. Crocker to his dimension. They formed a syndicate and proceed to steal energy from all the worlds. Since our heroes don't know where Calamitous' lair is, they start with saving all of their worlds first.

They go to Amity Park first and find Vlad. Vlad reveals that he uses his ghost-portal to steal ghost energy from the Ghost Zone. Vlad has also captured Danny's parents. Then, he sends the heroes to the Ghost Zone Prison. The Nicktoons survive in the prison, and defeat Walker. They break out of the prison through a portal and end up in Fenton Works. They see many Amity Park civilians possessed by ghosts, but manage to push them out. The Nicktoons go to the Amity Park Graveyard, which is a shortcut to Plasmius' castle. When they go in, Jimmy realizes that there are generators that help Vlad keep the portal open. They find the generators, and destroy them, shutting off the portal. When they find Vlad, the Nicktoons defeat him and save Jack and Maddie Fenton without them noticing the Nicktoons. They also find out that the Syndicate is building something.

Next, our heroes go to Bikini Bottom to fight Plankton. They meet Sandy, and follow her to the Krusty Krab. Sandy tells the Nicktoons that they should find some guards which should help them find Plankton and the Jellyfish Factory. Fortunately, they found the guards. Sandy then explains that Plankton uses the harvesters to capture jellyfish, and is extracting power from their sting in the factory. Plankton also captured Mr. Krabs. Sandy told the Nicktoons that they must go into the Jellyfish Factory and free all the Jellyfish. After Timmy asked if they have any secret agents (since he thought that it's like a spy movie), Sandy said that they have an agent in Jellyfish Fields, who is revealed to be Patrick, but he's been captured by a Jellyfish harvester. After destroying all the harvesters, the Nicktoons go to the factory, but during the journey, they find themselves on the Flying Dutchman's ship and the Flying Dutchman is going to make them his new crew for all eternity. Luckily, the Dutchman frees them after they bring back his old crew. When the Nicktoons arrive to the Chum Bucket, they free Patrick and all the Jellyfish by opening the emergency vents. Later, they went up to the top of the Chum Bucket, they beat Plankton and rescue Mr. Krabs. The Nicktoons find out that the villains are extracting energy for a Doomsday Device.

In Dimmsdale, the Nicktoons see Crocker has made the fortress made of gold. They also find a rainbow of pure Fairy Magic from the Fairy World that is ending there, so they go in. After they re-activate the prisms, they get transported to Fairy World, where they meet Jorgen Von Strangle. Jorgen explains that Crocker is extracting the magic from the Big Wand to feed the Doomsday Machine. After freeing the fairies, they go to The Big Wand, where they defeat Crocker. Danny figured out that every time they beat their enemies, they're running away, which was a part of a plan.

Finally, the Nicktoons return to Retroville, where Jimmy finds Cindy in his lab and he also receives a message from Calamitous that they've almost finished the Doomsday Machine and the Nicktoons can't stop them. After SpongeBob notices that Goddard has fleas, Jimmy says that Goddard doesn't get the fleas. Then, he figured out how Calamitous could spy on him; he was using a flea-bot inside Goddard. So the Nicktoons shrink themselves down and go to Goddard's stomach. They beat a lot of mini flea-bots throughout Goddard, and Danny, Timmy and SpongeBob gain Goddard's trust. They go to Goddard's head and beat the giant flea-bot. Jimmy used the flea-bot's circuitry and locate Calamitous' secret lair, which is situated under an old warehouse. When they get to Calamitous' Doomsday lab, they find The Syndicate in a wheel-like machine which shields them. They beat the Syndicate but they see that the Doomsday Device is still counting down to destroy the universe and it can't be stopped. Luckily, SpongeBob unplugs the Doomsday Machine and saves the universe.

After putting Calamitous and Plankton in jail, the Nicktoons said themselves goodbye, but before they went, Jimmy gave them the Neutronic Recallers in case of another event like this. SpongeBob said that Jimmy can visit him any time he likes, but then he said he should get going, so he won't be charged by Mr. Krabs for wasting his time (even though SpongeBob and the others saved his life), Danny gave Jimmy a copy of the Fenton Thermos (since the copy Thermos had Vlad trapped inside, Danny used Jimmy's Matter Duplicator to make a copy), then Timmy thanked Jimmy for lending him his Hyper-Cube for holding Crocker until Timmy and his fairies get back to Dimmsdale. After this, Jimmy says a familiar line: "Cindy, get out of my lab!"

In the console versions, a player can play by him/herself with three CPU's, or have up to three friends play along. In single player, the person playing can switch between the four characters at any time in the game by using the Directional Pad (that little pad thing that looks like a plus (+) sign that's either over the left analog stick for the PS2 controller, or under the gray Control Stick on the GameCube controller). Every character's health and Special Ability Power (SAP) is represented by the two combined arrow-point shaped bars near the character's face icon on the bottom left corner of the screen. In single player, depending on where the arrow is pointing, that's the direction to push on the D-pad to switch to the corresponding character. The green bar represents health, the purple means SAP. A character's health lowers when they take damage from things such as enemies. When a character's health lowers to an especially low degree, the character says they need help, and the character's face icon changes to a more worried and tired icon that flashes red. If a character's health depletes completely, then that character dies, not effecting the rest of them, but costing that character a life. If a single character lose all their lives, the player gets a game over, because all the levels in the game have sections that require the now dead character's special powers. More health can be earned by picking up the green orbs of it that enemies drop when the player(s) defeat(s) them. There are certain tasks that only a certain character can do, and performing these special abilities will deplete the character's SAP meter. For example, SpongeBob is needed to use Bubble Bombs to blow up seemingly breakable walls and pillars, Danny is needed to use Ghostly Wail to shatter glass, Timmy is needed to use Freeze Glove to freeze water instantaneously, and Jimmy has to shoot down objects with Neutron Flare. If a character completely depletes their SAP, they can no longer perform that ability (or the rest of their special abilities) until more SAP gradually comes back over time, or the player collects the purple orbs of it enemies drop when they're defeated, exactly like how recovering life works. There are two kinds of fighters to play as. SpongeBob and Danny both use their hands to attack, while Timmy and Jimmy send out projectiles. SpongeBob and Danny are better for defeating enemies faster because they both use close-quarters combat, but are more likely to get hit if there's a large crowd of enemies. And while Jimmy and Timmy use projectiles so they can damage enemies from a farther distance allowing them to stay out of range from enemy attacks, it will most likely take longer to kill them due to the projectiles lack of strength and speed.

Goddard can be found in all four worlds so he can upgrade the players weapons and abilities.


In console version these bonuses can be unlocked by saving Tak: The Great Juju Challenge, Lights, Camera, Pants!, and Barnyard.


  • Squidward was the only main character not to appear in this video game, however he is mentioned.
  • An Xbox version was originally planned, but it was later cancelled for unknown reasons.[1]
  • This game could be a prequel to Nicktoons Freeze Frame Frenzy, but it is not known if Freeze Frame Frenzy is canon to the Nicktoons Unite! video game series.
  • This game was released in North America on PS2, Game Boy Advance, and GameCube five years after the premiere of "Something Smells" and "Bossy Boots."
  • This is the first time someone mistakes SpongeBob for cheese. The second time will be in "What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?"
  • This and Revenge of the Flying Dutchman are the only 3D games that SpongeBob can't double jump.
  • The PS2,and GameCube have the same gameplay, while the GameBoy Advance and Nintendo DS versions each have their own gameplay style.


  • This game takes place in 2002 or later as in Jimmy Timmy Power Hour (This is mentioned later in the section) takes place when Timmy is in fifth grade, which was when he was 10-years-old and he was born on March 21, 1992. (It might take place after 2002 as Timmy wished to be 10-years-old forever, which was stopped after 50 years.[2])
  • This takes place in June, possibly on June 14 or earlier. This was revealed when SpongeBob thought it was his birthday when the heroes got to SpongeBob's world. When Sandy arrived, she told him that his birthday wasn't for another month. SpongeBob's birthday, as revealed on several of his licenses, is July 14.
  • This takes place after the episode "Band Geeks," as evidenced by the fact that Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob, Sandy, Plankton, and Patrick had never seen a human before this episode, as referenced when Patrick says, "These are some odd looking fish." and SpongeBob saying, "Maybe we're in one of those toxic waste dumps."
  • This takes place after the Jimmy Neutron and The Fairly OddParents! crossover, Jimmy Timmy Power Hour. As referenced by Jimmy and Timmy's knowledge of each other. As well as Jimmy's knowledge of Cosmo and Wanda. Also, Jimmy refers to Fairy World magic as "the power source from the game." Cindy also met Timmy in that episode, which is referenced at the end of the game.
    • It might also take place after Jimmy Timmy Power Hour 2: When Nerds Collide! because in that episode, Mr. Crocker and Professor Calamitous had no interaction with each other after Professor Calamitous hit the "Welcome to Dimmsdale" sign when Mr. Crocker was putting up his birthday sign. More evidence is that in that episode, Calamitous, fused with Jorgen's body, used Jorgen's wand to make things change in Retroville. However, in this game, Wanda says that they can only change things to their universe. It is possible that Calamitous' actions led to adding that rule.

  • This takes place after "Tea at the Treedome" because SpongeBob knows Sandy.
  • This takes place after "Scaredy Pants" because SpongeBob knows the Flying Dutchman.

  • This takes place after The Fairly OddParents! episode, Apartnership!, because Timmy has been to Fairy World.
  • This takes place after The Fairly OddParents! episode, A Wish Too Far!, because Timmy knows Jorgen.
  • This takes place after the Oh Yeah Cartoons! short/the pilot of The Fairly OddParents!, The Fairly OddParents! because Timmy knows Cosmo and Wanda.
  • This takes place before or after The Fairly OddParents! episode, Abra-Catastrophe! because the exterior of Crocker's fortress looks similar to his fortress in that episode.
  • This takes place after the Danny Phantom episode, One of a Kind, because that is the episode where Danny met the Box Ghost and Skulker. (Skulker appeared in the episode below.)
  • This takes place after the Danny Phantom episode, Prisoners of Love, because that is the episode where Danny met Walker. He has also been to the Ghost Zone Prison before in that episode.
    • Because of that episode, this game is also after the episode, Mystery Meat, because that is the episode where Danny met The Lunch Lady Ghost and she was in Prisoners of Love. Same with the episodes, What you Want, Attack of the Killer Garage Sale, and Parental Bonding with the characters Desiree, Technus, and Princess Dorathea.
  • This takes place after "Frankendoodle" because that is the episode where SpongeBob created Doodlebob, which is used as an attack in the game.
    • Because of this episode, this game also takes place after "Bubblestand".
  • This takes place after the Danny Phantom episode, The Ultimate Enemy, because that is the episode where Danny gains the ability to use his Ghostly Wail, which is an attack in the game.
  • This takes place before Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island, Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots, and SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom. This is known because in Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island, Danny, SpongeBob, Sandy, Sam, Jimmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Timmy, and Patrick know each other and Plankton's giant green crab suit appears, crashed on Volcano Island. In Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots, Danny, SpongeBob, Jimmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Timmy, and Patrick know each other and when Patrick, SpongeBob, and Tak get to Jimmy, SpongeBob says, "Look! It's Jimmy Neutron!" and Tak says, "Jimmy who-tron?" and Patrick responds, "Oh, he's a friend of ours. We go way back," referencing the past two games. In SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom, Danny, Tak, Plankton, SpongeBob, Patrick, and the Wise Old Crab knew each other (except for the Wise Old Crab with Plankton and Tak and Tak with Plankton) and SpongeBob calls them the "Evil Syndicate," which the only other time they were called this was in Nicktoons Unite!.
  • This takes place before The Fairly Parents episodes, Fairly Odd Baby, Fairly OddPet, and The Big Fairy Share Scare because neither Poof, Sparky, or Chloe are around with Timmy.
  • This game may be before "Wishing You Well" because in the "Down the Well" song, at one point SpongeBob was acting like a fairy, but in this game he asks "What's a fairy?"
    • It should be noted that in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, which is mentioned in a two points, Squidward mentions a fairy godmother, and in The Whole Tooth, the existance of a Tooth Fairy as a childhood tale is mentioned by Squidward, suggesting that fairies exist in Bikini Bottom mythology.
  • This game takes place after "Plankton!" because SpongeBob knows Karen.

  • This game takes place after the Danny Phantom episode, "Memory Blank", because Danny has his logo on his chest, which he did not obtain until that episode.
  • This game takes place before Nicktoons Freeze Frame Frenzy because in that game, Jimmy knows SpongeBob and Danny Phantom, who he meets in this game.
    • Additionally, in SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom, Zim mentions that he is not a villain, referencing his role in Nicktoons Freeze Frame Frenzy.
  • In real life, this game was released for the Game Cube and PlayStation 2 in North America between the American premiere dates of "Patrick SmartPants" and "SquidBob TentaclePants." It was released on DS between the American premiere dates of "Have You Seen This Snail?" and "Dunces and Dragons." It was released in the PAL area between the American premiere dates of Dunces and Dragons and "Krusty Towers"/"Mrs. Puff, You're Fired."


  • Jimmy Neutron refers to Cosmo and Wanda as Timmy's "Holograms," even though by the end of Jimmy Timmy Power Hour, he called them "Reality-bending Computer Programs."
  • In the GameBoy Advance version, in Timmy's Home level, when Timmy says, "Hey, why there are robots in my house?" the player can see Jimmy's room in the background.
  • In the GameBoy Advance version, in the intro Denzel Crocker is misspelled as Denzil Crocker.
  • In the console version, Wanda says that she and Cosmo have lost their powers. However, throughout the game she and Cosmo use magic as Timmy's main attack. In addition, she and Cosmo use magic to poof into the scene right before she says that she and Cosmo have lost their powers.
  • When Danny goes into his invisible form, he states, "Going Ghost!" However, this is improper because this is what he says when he goes from human to ghost form.
  • At the beginning of the scene that introduces the prism in the level, "Crocker's Fortress," it is written that Timmy calls Fairy World, "Fairy Land."
  • In the console version, unless Jimmy somehow got Danny after and quicker than he got SpongeBob, it is unknown how Danny did not know that SpongeBob talked as he should have heard and possibly seen SpongeBob taking in his part of the conversation which occurred moments earlier.
  • In the console version, in the second cutscene, each of the members of the Syndicate is shown on Jimmy's computer. Professor Calamitous is shown in 2D, as opposed to CGI, which is the animation that his show is in. 
  • In the console version, in the Krusty Krab cutscene, SpongeBob says, "Wow. A secret agent, I wonder who it could be.", but the caption writes, ""Wow. A secret agent, I wonder who it could be?".
  • In the DS version, SpongeBob's door is wooden and his path is just a dirt path. The flowers around his house are also missing.
  • In the DS version, Patrick's windvane is not bamboo, but metal.
  • In the DS version, the interior of The Krusty Krab looks almost completely incorrect.
  • In the DS version, in the level select menu, the Chum Bucket is made into one word, not two.
