To do:
Some unused characters have animations in .MAX format. Find out how to view these..

A screenshot on the internet shows a position debugger in action.

Check if Ch. 6, Level 99 still exists, along with it's music.

SpongeBob SquarePants: SuperSponge is a 2D platformer based on the cartoon known for having very inconsistent graphics but a well-made soundtrack.

Unused Graphics

SpongeBob

Several unused SpongeBob death animations are present. A few of these match original concept art of the games functions!

Several unused faces meant for SpongeBob's render model are present.


Sbsp healthfull.png Sbsp healthempty.png

Remnants of a health bar seen in early builds of the game. In the final game, SpongeBob's "health" works much like Sonic and rings.

Gary Sketch

meow

A very small pencil sketch of Gary used in some early builds.

MISSING Sign

Sbsupersponge missing.png
A sign saying "MISSING" found within the tiles of the game's font.

Size Tests

Size tests exist for most unused enemies, using sprites from a very early build of the game.

Unused Animations

SpongeBob

Sbsp SpongeBob Timid.gif

A strange animation of a shy SpongeBob. It could have been used in a cutscene.

Sbsp SpongeBob Face.gif

An odd animation of every face SpongeBob can make, including deaths. The used animations are in separate folders.

Sbsp SpongeBob Idle EyePop.gif

A bizarre idle animation of SpongeBob turning his face into a large eye and back. The eye pop frame is probably for blinking.

Sbsp Idle Net.gif

An animation meant to be used when SpongeBob is holding an item. This seems to be an early version of the used animation, which is calmer.

Sbsp IdleWind.gif

SpongeBob makes a weird noise when performing this action. This action is used in the GBA version!

Sbsp IdleFaceUpSideDown.gif

SpongeBob turns his face upside down. It's even painful to watch!

Sbsp FmaItemWalk.gif

SpongeBob walking with a item. In the final, he carelessly runs with his objects. Almost looks like he's climbing!

Sbsp Shout.gif

SpongeBob yells to somebody. Can you hear me?

Sbsp Idea.gif

SpongeBob goes into deep thought, only to be presented with an idea and a sheepish smile.

Sbsp Throw.gif

SpongeBob throwing an object.

Sbsp stumble.gif

This animation is used, but his expression is covered up by a sandwich. A sandwich.

Unused Items

Sbsp balloonspat.png

A spatula floating on a balloon.

Sbsp glasses.png

This pickup was actually in earlier versions. It didn't seem to do anything noticeable besides being able to catch blue jellyfish, another thing unused in the game.

Sbsp health25.png Sbsp health50.png Sbsp health100.png

These items would heal SpongeBob in early versions, and the GBA version. In this version, SpongeBob's health is his spatulas.

Sbsp questitem.png

A placeholder for the items you collect at the end of each level.

Unused Models

Characters

Sbsp Neptune.png

Textures and a 3D model exist for King Neptune. His render folder is empty, suggesting he was scrapped early.


Items

Sbsp Glasses.png

SpongeBob has a 3D model for his glasses, not even seen in early versions! This model doesn't have textures, and it's the only model in the game to have a .3DS format.

Unused Enemies

EyeBall

Sbsp EyeBall Roll.gif Sbsp EyeBall Stalk.png

A very bizarre, semi out of place eyeball on a stalk. It appeared inside the whale in early versions.

Nautilus

Sbsp Nautilus.gif

A 3D nautilus enemy.

BallBlob

Sbsp BallBlob Bite.gif Sbsp BallBlob Idle0001.png

A blob. It only has a bite animation and an idle, which is one frame.

SharkMan

The shark from the episode MuscleBob BuffPants was meant to be an enemy, but never appears. He originally appeared in Jelly Fields (Industrial) at the end of the level in early versions. He also has a variety of animations. He also has a 3D model and some textures, but they seem to reflect a different version.

BoogerMonster

Sbsp Bm.png

A booger monster enemy exists, for some reason. It has no renders, and a bite animation.

Unused Music

In BIGLUMP.BIN, there are multiple unused music tracks.

Big Top

A song meant for a carnival or circus level. It plays during the credits in the GBA version.

Game Over

A song that was supposed to play when you get game over when at the continue screen and the countdown reaches zero. It plays in the GBA version.

Party Scene

A song meant for the ending scene in the game. Instead, as with the previous song, there's just silence with talking.

Original Cutscene

This soundtrack was used in the earlier prototypes of the game but never made it into the final release.

Unused Dialogue

Several XA files go unused, many of which were used in Operation Krabby Patty and other SpongeBob AWE Games titles.

SpongeBob

Audio Subtitles
Oops! I guess I ripped my pants again!
Hey guys! I guess I ripped my pants again! (Long laughter)
I love Bikini Bottom!

Patrick

Audio Subtitles
Merry Christmas!
Don't worry buddy.
You're doin' fine.
Anyone wanna dance?
Yikes!

Squidward

Audio Subtitles
Are you insane?!
(Laughter)
How did I get surrounded by such loser neighbors.
Can we lower the volume please?!
Umm... oh boy.
SpongeBob!

Sandy

Audio Subtitles
I like you SpongeBob. We're tighter than bark on a tree. Why don't y'all borrow my diving hat, so your head can stay water-logged?
Hold on there little square dude!
I like you SpongeBob. We could be tighter than bark on a tree.
(Laughter)
You're funny little dude.
Yee-Haw!

Plankton

Audio Subtitles
Give me the patty!
SpongeBob? SpongeBob. SpongeBob.
You are gonna hand deliver the Krabby Patty to me personally!
I went to college!
(Long laughter)
(Various pain noises)
This stinks.
You porous freak!

Barnacle Boy

At the ending, Mermaid Man says this line, not Barnacle Boy. In the original storyboard, it says that BB curses out SpongeBob. Most likely not cussing.

Audio Subtitles
SpongeBob SquarePants! Hmm, wait until I get my hands on that porous freak!

Various Debug Mode Related Texts

Hmmm...
To do:
Find out how to activate it.

Oddities

  • SpongeBob, Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy all have files with an ending "FMV_NOITEMS". The renders are transparent.
  • In the built-in Map-Editor, tiles labeled "00" can be seen in front of things like checkpoints, and the goal.
The "00" tile.
