Character

Personality

Mr. Krabs is an outrageously greedy, overweight, selfish crab and SpongeBob's employer at the Krusty Krab. In some episodes, he is seen dating money. He is noted for speaking in a stereotypical pirate's lingo and his unhealthily obsessive passion for money, to the point of being willing to make ridiculous exchanges for it in the smallest of amounts (such as trading SpongeBob for sixty-two cents in the episode Born Again Krabs). His extraordinary greed frequently brings himself to prioritize money before all else in his life. For example, he held a cheap birthday celebrations for his daughter Pearl in an attempt to save money. Krabs is always willing to take a cheaper route out of spending great amounts of money, regardless of what will happen in return.
