The Moth is one of Mermaid Man's arch nemeses that he has been tracking down for 57 years. He appears in the episodes "Night Light," "Mermaid Man Begins," and "Squid Noir." He is voiced by Mark Hamill.


The Moth is muscular, has a light brown body, a pale green head, dark orange antennae, wears a pale green speedo, has pale green hands, has red eyes, and has giant light yellow wings.

The Moth is an underwater, small, miniature insect that wears a typical superhero suit but unfortunately, he is a villainous bug.


He first appears in the episode "Night Light" and he is attracted to all the light given off at SpongeBob's house, especially the lighthouse. SpongeBob traps him inside the lighthouse, but he escapes by carrying it inside the cage, and he flies away. He later appears as an action figure in "Mermaid Man Begins."


  • He is voiced by Mark Hamill (actor of Luke Skywalker from Star Wars and the voice of the Joker in most of the Batman animated series and voices Skips in Regular Show).
  • He resembles the famed monster, Mothman, with wings and red eyes.
  • He is a parody of Batman's villain "The Killer Moth."
    • He could also be a parody of The Fly.
  • The Moth looks similar to Superman, the Owlman, Mothman, and even Man Ray.
