Is Mr. Krabs a Villain??? Lukas
Mr. Krabs is a villain
Mr. Krabs has played the role of an antagonist on numerous occasions. Even Stephen Hillenburg, the guy who created the show, calls him a villain, to the point of stating that Mr. Krabs is sometimes even worse than Plankton. What kind of foolishman would NOT call him a villain? Frankly, I'd categorize him as a Complete Monster if I had the authority to do so.Pyromania101 (talk) 23:20, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
He's not really Complete Monster. Yes, he's crossed the M.E.H. twice or trice (<yes, old-ass word) but he doesn't possess those needed qualities, like being unredeemable or causing fear or hatred in other characters. Other than that, he's a flat-out evil. Tremorfan94
"One Coarse Meal" is an example where he is downright evil: he ruthlessly tormented Plankton into an insomniac, suicidal wreck. Granted, Plankton's no saint, but that's just mean. Other than that, you mostly right.Pyromania101 (talk) 22:22, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
He crossed the MEH big-time in "Jellyfish Hunter", as many of the captured jellyfish died from getting all their jelly brutally extracted from them. Aside from "One Coarse Meal", that was by far his worst atrocity, and also happens to be the first time when he's the main antagonist of the episode.Pyromania101 (talk) 23:32, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
I know this term is deleted far too often but I honestly believe Mr. Krabs is one. Nickelodeon is hardly going to allow the serious villains but Mr Krabs' "games" in "One Coarse Meal" were twisted, horrible and downright cruel.. Plankton maybe the villain but Krabs almost drove Plankton to suicide and loved every moment of it (if that not Complete Monster worthy, I don't know what is) - he was also a coward and a bully. Not to mention he cares more for money than anything in the entire series (even his own daughter). He may not appear as horrible as some other villains (Like Dennis) due to the show he appears in but when you sit down and think on it Krabs was one of the SB's more outright nasty characters.
He's also crossed the MEH three times. I would also like to mention his appearance in the Jellyfish episode. Where he.. you know.. kills more than a hundred jelliyfish just to collect their jelly and make more money. JESUS. There is just no limit to this guy.

He's not a complete monster, he's been shown to care about his daughter and he actually feels sorry for his bad deeds, so don't even start with this.
Which 6 episodes has he crossed it in? I can think of 3 or 4 times he's crossed the MEH in the series.
Mr. Krabs doesn't even get close. Nobody in the series even gets close. Mr. Krabs, vile as his flanderized state is, cannot be measured by any sort of spectrum because A. his villainous status is dependent on the writer, and is such far too inconsistent (he's a money grubbing sociopath in one episode and a benevolent boss in the other) and B. is still present with consistent redeeming qualities even in the light of his worse moments.
Just because you have a character that commits several MEH worthy acts doesn't mean they're worth analyzing. The same goes for all unsympathetic comedy protagonists of this sort, namely Peter Griffin, Homer Simpson, and the rest of the Spongebob characters you'd actually want to recommend for this trope. You can measure a character by their evil, but you also have to look at them as a character and how they're portrayed as well. Otherwise, your judgment is not going to work.
I'm going to have to agree with lostgod2000 on this, mr krabs hasn't done anything truly vile enough to be put there, also the same goes for Patrick. And guys don't listen to mr enter on his thoughts, it's going too far. Mr krabs is insane, but he is by no means a complete monster.Kevin125 (talk) 00:42, January 31, 2015 (UTC)
Also in Mermaid Pants, when he, Spongebob, Patrick, and Squidward were playing as heroes and villains(with Mr. Krabs and Squidward as villains) he was uneven when Squidward was about to fry Spongebob and Patrick. ChasHades (talk) 01:47, November 28, 2016 (UTC)
Should the "Mr.Krabs's Unaquenchable Bloodlust" version become it's own page?
I think the version from "Mr. Krabs's Unquenchable Bloodlust" should become it's own section.
He's shown to care about his daughter and a if he was a complete monster he wouldn't care about her
Also he's just a spoiled brat,he's not pure evil.
K I have just one question. How is Mr. Krabs an honorable villain. There were some episodes where he cheated not only Spongebob, but also a hunch of Bokoni Bottom citizens. And can he be removed from the affably evil category? The Faux Affably Evil category fits him better and he’s rather protective than actually affably evil. And another thing, can he be removed from the scapegoat category. I mean think about it. He made Plankton attempt suicide. Don’t you think Mr. Krabs’ punishments are what he deserve?

Animal Cruelty Pls, can you stop removing Me. Krabs from the animal cruelty category. I mean think about it. In one episode, he killed a bunch of jellyfish just for their jelly and for him to get money. Plus, in another episode, he used Gary to collect coins, being aware of the snail’s pain, just NOT caring for it. I know that sea snails and jellyfish are sea creatures, but that doesn’t meant they’re not ANIMALS for crying out loud. And Mr. Krabs was actually cruel to them. And I’m pretty sure there were other episodes where he was cruel to animals. So pls stop removing Mr. Krabs from the animal cruelty category because he ever so belongs there. Just saying.
