Night of the Robot (known as "The Scary Robot Movie," according to SpongeBob) is a horror movie that haunted SpongeBob to believe that robots are taking over the world. It appears in the episode "Krab Borg."


Robots start taking over the world and chase people around. It is not confirmed why they wanted to take over the world, but it is most likely that they want to free their fellow appliances. In appearance these robots are metal gray with two vertically-positioned red bulbs for eyes, walk slowly with flat feet, and have large pincers for hands. They also run on batteries, speak in a matter of beeps, can't love, cry, or laugh.

While the robots are battling, the main hero and one of his friends gang up and interrogate a robot for information (SpongeBob explains this as "getting the poop"), but what they find out is that the robots don't actually exist; it was all their imagination.
