King Poseidon is the main antagonist of Nickelodeon's 33rd semi-theatrical film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run. He is the king of the lost city of Atlantic City.
King Poseidon is a vain, flamboyant, self-centered monarch whose life mostly revolves around his looks as he believes that his facial features are what makes him a true king. He is also somewhat comedic as he overreacts to one unrecognizable wrinkle on his face in an over-the-top manner. He also had anyone who dare stand up to him executed in a flamboyant stage show.
Long before the events of the movie, King Poseidon became the king of the lost city of Atlantic City. He became extremely focused on his looks in his rise to power and used the slime from sea snails to make the wrinkles on his face go away. When the royal snail ran out of slime, he would discard it and send it down a chute to a snail dungeon, which they would be enslaved.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run
King Poseidon is first seen admiring his looks and talking about them to his Chancellor. Suddenly Poseidon notices a wrinkle on his face and requests his royal snail, so he can use the slime to get rid of the wrinkle. He puts the snail on his face and learns the snail is out of slime. He sends the snail to the dungeon and orders the Chancellor to bring him another snail at once. The Chancellor then informs him the snail population has been depleted. Poseidon then has the Chancellor write a decree for a boon for whoever brings him a snail. The Chancellor sends the decree to Bikini Bottom where it catches the attention of Plankton, who has once again failed to steal the Krabby Patty formula because of SpongeBob. Plankton knows SpongeBob has a snail named Gary, and he helps Poseidon kidnap Gary so Poseidon can use his slime and Plankton can finally steal the formula without SpongeBob getting in the way. After SpongeBob returns to his house and discovers Gary has taken by Poseidon, he and Patrick head over to rescue him.
On the road to Atlantic City, SpongeBob and Patrick watch Poseidon use Gary on his face through the Mirror of Meanwhile.

- Harry Shearer, Mandy Patinkin, John Lithgow, James Woods, James Caan, Jeffrey Tambor, Alec Baldwin, John Goodman, Gary Oldman, J.K. Simmons, Chris O'Dowd, Jeff Bridges, Michael Keaton, Paul Giamatti, Robby Benson, Rupert Everett, Jimmy Fallon, Nathan Lane, John Shea, Jack Coleman, David Boreanaz, Ken Watanabe, Sean Hayes, Jim Carrey, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Lee, Justin Long, Bill Hader, Patton Oswalt, Jack Black, Will Forte, Steve Buscemi and Neil Patrick Harris were all considered for the role of Poseidon before Matt Berry was cast.
- He is the third villain to be the main antagonist of the SpongeBob SquarePants movie trilogy, the others are Plankton, and Burger-Beard.
- He is also the first villain in the SpongeBob SquarePants movie trilogy to be redeemed.
- Poseidon is occasionally referenced as the deity of the sea in the show, however the role often instead goes to King Neptune, who is far more cruel than Poseidon.
- Because of changes like this, such as taking place after Kamp Koral which has a timeline that contradicts the original show (i.e. How SpongeBob met Sandy[in Tea at the Treedome], and even Patrick[Flashbacks have shown SpongeBob and Patrick have know each other since infancy] and Gary[SpongBob mentions adopting him at Bikini Bottom's pet shelter in Plankton's Pet), the film, and Kamp Koral by extension, can be considered non-canon to the original show.
- He is over 3000 years old.
- Poseidon re-naming Gary as "Fred" is likely a reference to the episode I Was a Teenage Gary, where Squidward confused Gary's name to be Fred.
