Squidward and friends (if that's what you want to call them).

Throughout the course of the series, Squidward is usually shown to have a considerable dislike towards his neighbors, SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick, for constantly ruining his day and driving him up the wall with their annoying antics and annoying things. This dislike would grow in the crappy Paul Tibbitt era, as SpongeBob and Patrick became increasingly obnoxious, stalkerish, psychopathic, Chris-chan lite man babies towards Squidward and he would often get punished for their antics despite doing nothing wrong. Though, once in a while, Squidward has occasionally shown kindness towards SpongeBob and Patrick under certain circumstances.

Relationship with SpongeBob

As seen in Truth or Square, Squidward was once living a happy life in Bikini Bottom with a fancy garden next to his house. One day, a pineapple fell off a boat and crushed his garden, immediately becoming the home of SpongeBob SquarePants after he moved into the neighborhood. Patrick appeared to have already been living next door to Squidward sometime prior to the incident.

Spongebob welcome Squidward

SpongeBob seems to be the character most hated by Squidward, probably until the end of the episode Restraining SpongeBob where Squidward releases him from the order and places Patrick there instead, even though Squidward still hates SpongeBob a lot. SpongeBob is usually oblivious to Squidward's hatred of him, and is often very nice to Squidward despite this. SpongeBob has kissed Squidward twice in the series (in Can You Spare a Dime? and again in Dear Vikings), and has even quoted that he "likes" Squidward after saying his name twice in 20,000 Patties Under the Sea.

In spite of SpongeBob's friendly nature, there have been a few instances where he has been rude or mean to Squidward. A notable example is in Can You Spare a Dime?, where he makes several attempts to make Squidward leave his house after knowing that that he has been taking advantage of his kindness, to the point of furiously rushing to the Krusty Krab while pushing Squidward on his bed. Another example is in Employee of the Month, where the two compete against each other while trying to reach the Krusty Krab, creating traps along the way.

Relationship with Patrick

Patrick looking at squidward

Although Squidward hates both SpongeBob and Patrick, he is far more rude to Patrick (possibly for being more stupid). Like SpongeBob, Patrick also acts friendly to Squidward. However, Patrick is more likely to be mean to Squidward. Sometimes, Patrick thinks Squidward doesn't like them, like in Jellyfishing. An example is in Wishing You Well, where Squidward and Patrick begin pushing each other and engage in a fight. In Restraining SpongeBob, Squidward feels Patrick is much more annoying than SpongeBob, as seen when he crossed out SpongeBob's name on his restraining order and replaced it with Patrick's; as of that moment, Squidward now hates Patrick more than SpongeBob. It should also be noted that Patrick has a habit of ignoring Squidward - for example, in Buried in Time, Squidward rejected Rocky from being placed in the time capsule, but Patrick began to do it anyway.

  • Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV - Although played for comedy, Patrick attempts to punch a shrunken Squidward with a "giant fist", despite what SpongeBob told him.
