How to Beat Prawn in Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated

Can’t beat Mermaid Man’s pesky arch nemesis Prawn in Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated? Here’s how to take him down.

Prawn is more of a mini-boss; you don’t even have to beat him in the game unless you want to fully complete the Mermalair level. But that doesn’t make him any less annoying.

Prawn’s boss battle, like many of Spongebob’s battles, takes place in three parts.


Prawn is surrounded by tiles which light up red and yellow all around him. The red tiles will hurt Spongebob and the yellow ones warn that red is about to come up. You won’t be able to approach Prawn at all due to the tiles and the barrier around him. But the tiles will stop and allow to get close enough to do a bubble bowl.

Prawn will shoot out what look like sound waves and you’ll have to run away from them in either direction, hopping over them if they get too close. When the tiles stop blinking, quickly run over to one of the spots without red tiles and bubble bowl into Prawn to hurt him. During the second round Prawn will do the exact same thing, but he’ll spawn in robots that you’ll have to deal with at the same time.

Try to avoid them or take them out, wait for the tiles to stop and then hit Prawn with your bubble bowl. Round 3 is exactly the same so once you’ve rinsed and repeat-ed you’ll have him beat!
