Papa Tentacles is Squidward Tentacles' father. He loved Squidward very much. It is presumed that he is already dead because Squidward talks about him in past tense. In the episode Krab Borg, SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs that Squidward's father never hugged his son. Then Squidward replied: "I'll have you know my dad loved me very much!" This probably means that Squidward's father is deceased or now hates him instead of loving him.
- No one knows if he is dead, but in "Krab Borg," Squidward says "I'll have you know my dad loved me very much!", implying that he is dead.
- It is unknown if Papa Tentacles still lives with Squidward's Mother. In "Horray for Dads" he appears indicating that it is possible that he is officially still living.
