Squidward is the tritagonist of the SpongeBob franchise. He is a cranky, grumpy, narcissistic octopus with a love of arts and culture and a hatred of SpongeBob, Patrick, his job, the citizens, and heaven knows how much more. Squidward can't dish out the damage that his comrades can, but he can take a lot more. He is the show's butt monkey, although that became more prominent after 2005.
