The Lion Fish is an orange and yellow creature. It is a fish with a head and claws of a lion and a body of a fish. It is a captive in the Chum Coliseum by Plankton, in the episode "Spongicus". It chased Patrick, because it was trying to eat the sausages attached to him. (It's the lion fish's favorite food). SpongeBob takes the sausages around Patrick's neck and throws it to the lion fish, which hit Plankton. This caused the lion fish to chase Plankton. It is later seen at The Krusty Krab, working as a financial expert of Mr. Krabs. Mr. Krabs uses the lion to scare customers into buying Krabby Patties.


  • Both The Lion Fish and The Sea Bear are meat eating fishes that appear in the Spongebob series.
  • In real-life, instead of having a lion-like appearance and mane, lion fish have venomous barbed spines.
