Squilliam Fancyson III, usually referred to as simply Squilliam, is a supporting antagonist of the Nickelodeon cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is the rival of Squidward Tentacles (who has succeeded in everything Squidward failed in) and seeks to defeat and further humiliate his rival in any way he can.
He is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.
Squilliam looks like Squidward but he has a unibrow and he wears very nice clothes, he is blue, he is not fat, but very appealing to the ladies. Although he is a bald head, he does have a very high(uni-)brow appeal.
Squiliam is a very rich octopus who was Squidward's rival in high school and claimed he "sucked eggs". He serves as the main antagonist of the episodes, Band Geeks and Squilliam Returns, and he also appears in House Fancy, Professor Squidward, I ♥ Dancing, and Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful. He is very stuck up and mean to Squidward and seems to have a large group of followers. He says he has a balloon/casino, a private yacht, island, lake, hooker, and more. We see a small glimpse of his mansion in Band Geeks when Squilliam calls Squidward and seems that a lot of the mansion is made out of marble. He was not seen after he walked out of the destroyed Krusty Krab in Squilliam Returns until he reappears in the Season 6 episode: House Fancy, he is being interviewed on a TV show by Nicholas Withers. He calls Squidward "Squiddy".
Squilliam only made one appearance in each Season 2 and Season 3, but in Season 6, Squilliam made 3 more appearances.
At first, Squilliam seems to have a similar personality to Squidward. Both are narcissistic, pompous, condescending, sophisticated snobs. However, in other ways, they are opposites. Squidward seems like a lazy, depressed and sarcastic, but deep down, he caring and has a strong moral code. Squilliam is hardworking, charming, popular, positive but also very cruel deep down, taking great joy in Squidward's misery. Small redeeming features may be that Squilliam cleaned up Bikini Bottom and he was impressed by Squidward's band. Squilliam is so rich, he owns many outlandish luxuries, and never hesitates to inform Squidward of his more extreme purchases.
