Eugene Harold Krabs, commonly referred to as Mr. Krabs, is a character in the hit series Spongebob Squarepants. He owns the Krusty Krab, a popular restaurant in Bikini Bottom, and has a daughter named Pearl Krabs. He is listed as the second main character in both movies' credits.

He is Mrs. Poppy Puff's boyfriend. Eugene is an exceedingly cheap crab whom's personal goal is to make money. He only has two employees, Spongebob Squarepants and Squidward Tentacles whom are usually thought to be underpaid. They both live in a black anchor which contains main things including Mr. Krab's first dollar, a dollarrama, and a variety of other antiques. Mr. Krabs is the son of Betsy and Victor Krabs. He was in the Navy for several years, fighting in a The War. Krabs attends a reunion with his fellow servicemen in the episode Shell of a Man and latter retells stories of his Navy days in Pull Up a Barrel. He has a long rivalry with Plankton whom has tried to steal the Krabby Patty formula for over 30 years, though they were friends when they were children. In Friend or Foe, he and Plankton explain their former friendship and how it came to an end in the early days of the Krabby Patty. In Krusty Love, Mr. Krabs is shown to fall in love with Mrs. Puff but is shown to not be able to balance his love of money with his love of Mrs. Puff. Krabs indicates that he has been dating Mrs. Puff for 16 years in Whirly Brains- a reference to period of time between the two episodes. His occasional negligence and greediness can lead to him having an antagonistic side, but he usually considered to be a protagonist. One example of Krabs being an antagonist occurs in Krabby Land, when he builds a cheap playground and stantly poses as Krabby the Clown leading disappointment of kids and Spongebob alike. In the end, he is fed an endless supply of Lima beans while all of his money is thrown off the top of the Krusty Krab to be collected by the inhabitants of Bikini Bottom. Another such example occurs in Born Again Krabs when Mr. Krabs sells Spongebob for just sixty-two cents to the Flying Dutchman but quickly realizes his horrible mistake. No consequences are reached, however, as the Flying Dutchman returns Spongebob because of his hyperactivity. Krabs usually wears a sky blue shirt with a black belt, and blue jeans in most episodes.
