Richard is short green fish who wears a gray suit with a red bow tie. He also wears pants and shoes. He has very short and very thin glasses.
Richard A. Bottomfeeder appears after Mr. Krabs gets upset after being sued by Plankton and wishes that he has an attorney. Richard comes onto the scene and will gladly help Mr. Krabs by counter-suing Plankton for everything he has got to earn even more money much to the delight of Mr. Krabs. However, before he can get to Bikini Bottom Court, Bottomfeeder slips on water near SpongeBob and is greatly injured telling SpongeBob he can't make it to Court. He then gives SpongeBob a briefcase telling him that everything that he needs to win his case is in there except for a suit. SpongeBob then takes the briefcase and leaves never to be seen again.
Even though his last name is Bottomfeeder, Richard doesn't appear to be one himself.
