Squidward Q. Tentacles is the tritagonist of the Nickelodeon series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is the neighbor between SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star. Squidward is a cephalopod. His species is an octopus, according to the series creators, despite his name containing the word "squid" and him having six legs instead of eight legs. He works as the cashier of the Krusty Krab, a job he absolutely loathes. SpongeBob works with Squidward at the Krusty Krab, where SpongeBob works as the fry-cook. In "Scaredy Pants", he scares SpongeBob twice with the Flying Dutchman voice and dresses as the Flying Dutchman in Krusty Krabs Halloween Party.
