Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living... in the basement of his restaurant, the Chum Bucket. Everyone in town goes to the Krusty Krab, but if he could take down his rival restaurant, he wouldn’t only have customers; he’d have a monopoly.

Profession... owner of the Chum Bucket, but he doesn’t spend his time flipping burgers or asking if you’d like fries with that. He spends every waking hour plotting to take down the Krusty Krab and steal the Krabby Patty Secret Formula.

Interests… world domination! But only once his restaurant gets its sea legs. He has tried everything from constructing evil robots to hiring an assassin to kill Spongebob and his friend Patrick, but no matter what he does, he can’t get his miniscule hands on that formula. And if he can’t make a decent burger, what chance does he have at taking over the world? 

Relationship Status... married to his computer system, Karen. Karen is his wife, or rather, his W.I.F.E. (Wired Integrated Female Electroencephalograph). She helps him out with his evil plans, but when he doesn’t succeed, she’s quick to kick him out. Plus, she has an annoying E.M.I.L.P. (Emergency Mother-In-Law Program).

Challenge... obtaining the elusive Krabby Patty Secret Formula. Mr. Krabs, his rival, carefully guards his precious formula to prevent anyone else from making money, but for Plankton, it’s more personal. They used to be friends, but that friendship ended over a dispute regarding the aforementioned formula. Plankton wants customers, but not as much as he wants revenge.

Personality...  egotistical and aggressive. Perhaps because he’s so small, Plankton overcompensates by being evil and manipulative. Either way, he’s too busy worrying about getting revenge to have any F.U.N. with other residents of Bikini Bottom. Being a villain might be lonely, but Plankton seems to like it that way.
