— Octavius Rex, "The Chaperone"

Octavius Rex, also known as Long, Tan, and Handsome, is Pearl's ex-boyfriend, who first appears in the episode "The Chaperone." He later returns in the season 9 episode "Goodbye, Krabby Patty?," and, like Bubble Bass, begins to make more recurring appearances.


He is a skinny, maple-brown fish seen wearing a light green sweater with brown pants and large round black glasses. He has a large visible bald spot on his head.

From "Goodbye, Krabby Patty?" onwards, his design has changed, and he is usually light-beige with a blue sweater, a pink shirt, a purple bow tie, brown pants and a pair of black shoes.

In "Snooze You Lose," he is light-blue with a brown sweater, a beige shirt, a red bow tie and dark-brown pants.


"The Chaperone"

Pearl mentions Octavius Rex as, "Long, Tan, and Handsome."

He then appears at the prom, alone.

"Goodbye, Krabby Patty?"

Octavius appears outside of the Mirror Shop as one of the bystanders got disgusted and puzzled by what SpongeBob and Patrick did.

"Mutiny on the Krusty"

Octavius appears wearing a magenta sweater in the Krusty Krab, and he is quickly the one to judge Mr. Krabs and Squidward. He and the other Bikini Bottomites are trying to leave the Krusty Krab. He no longer says "meep" and speaks full sentences.

"Snooze You Lose"

Octavius appears alongside Maestro Mackerel at the concert hall. At first, Maestro doesn't know who is on the stage, but Octavius tells him it's Squidward and that he's a clarinet player. At first he enjoyed watching Squidward playing the clarinet, but once Squidward woke up he hated it.

"There's a Sponge in My Soup"

Octavius is one of the customers in the Krusty Krab that orders Krabby Soup. Sunshine emerges from the soup bowl and kisses him, causing his wife Debbie Rechid to hit him, complaining that he loves his soup more than her.

"Larry the Floor Manager"

When Octavius is served his food on weights, he can't lift them. Larry and Frank yell at him to push the weights, so he does, and manages to lift them onto a table. However, he passes out before he can eat.

Relationship with Debbie Rechid
