— Robot Krabs, "Imitation Krabs"
Character

Robot Krabs is a robotic dummy of Mr. Krabs in the episodes "Imitation Krabs," "New Leaf," "Spy Buddies," "Goodbye, Krabby Patty?," and "Plankton Retires." In all its appearances besides "Imitation Krabs," the robot is animatronic.

Description

Robot Krabs is a highly sophisticated robot that has many different features. Inside, from where Plankton controls it, there are hundreds of levers and pulleys to make the robot do many things. The robot is red and constructed from metal, with a metal suit as stated by SpongeBob. It has big eyes and its face acts and looks like a microphone. The robot appears to wear the same clothing as Mr. Krabs, but made from metal.

The robot has a self-destruct device activated by a penny inserted through a coin slot on his belt buckle. He can also disguise himself as a bread toaster.

One of the giveaways that the robot is not Mr. Krabs is that it periodically emits an exhaust fume with an audible noise from an exhaust pipe at the rear whenever it lies.
