The Quickster is a superhero who appears in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V," as well as the games The Quickster and Bikini Bottom Brawlers. He is a part of "The International Justice League of Super Acquaintances." It is assumed that he retired, and is replaced by SpongeBob SquarePants.


He has the ability to run extremely fast. His costume is white with a red lightning bolt on it.


  • Speed: can run so fast that he cannot be seen.
  • Red Jellyfish Attack: (only in Nick Arcade Game Atlantis SquarePantis: Square Off).


  • If he abuses his speed, he will be little more than a pair of shoes. (Although, this could have been due to Captain Magma/Squidward's lava attack).
  • His immense speed causes a rut to form if he runs in a closed figure. While not a weakness in its own right, it can possibly dig a rut deep enough to trap him.
