    Loathsome Characters Wiki
    Sam Star
    There is a reason why she was replaced with Squidina as Patrick's sister.
    Gender: Female
    Type: Sociopathic Destructive Starfish with Extreme Anger Issues
    Age: Unknown
    Species: Starfish
    Portrayed by: Bill Fagerbakke
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: SpongeBob SquarePants
    First appearance: Big Sister Sam

    Sam Star is Patrick Star's older sister who makes her only appearance in the infamous episode "Big Sister Sam" from season 7 of SpongeBob SquarePants.

    She is voiced by Bill Fagerbakke, who also does the voice of a certain sea star.


    Sam is shown to be highly aggressive by her clarity. This can be true as she is easily angered by any person she does not recognize. However, she expresses a brotherly bond with her younger brother and defends him from SpongeBob when she mistook physical contact as aggression.

    In addition to her supportive behavior, her level of intelligence is relatively lower than Patrick's as she speaks in incomplete sentences and has no regard for other people. She talks in the third person.

    Why She's Intentionally Not Patrick's Sister

    1. For starters, in the episode "Something Smells", Patrick said that he doesn't have a sister, yet in the episode, she is introduced as Patrick's sister, which goes against the show's continuity, making this character pointless.
    2. Like Patrick, she is shown to have a low IQ, but not in a good way.
    3. She has severe anger issues as she constantly loses her temper and goes on massive rampages for petty reasons. Does that ring a bell?
    4. Her character design is very ugly and grotesque, though it might be intentional.
    5. Her voice is annoyingly gruff and unfitting for a female. It doesn't help that she shares the same voice actor as Patrick himself.
    6. Whenever Patrick is around, she plays the victim and tries to make SpongeBob and Squidward look bad.
    7. When Patrick half-heartedly calls her out for her actions, she goes as far as destroying Patrick’s home towards the end of the episode and accidentally injures him in the act. Thankfully, he ended up being okay.
    8. She never gets punished for her actions, thus making her a Karma Houdini.
    9. Due to all of the above, she was the main reason why "Big Sister Sam" was hated among fans.

    Intentional Redeeming Qualities

    1. Despite being extremely unlikable, she has some funny moments.
    2. She was meant to be hated.


    • Sam mispronounces "brother" as "brubber" and "decorate" as "blecorate."
    • She is similar to the Incredible Hulk, due to her speaking in the third person, her exceeding strength, and her getting angry easily.
    • She has the same hair color as her mother in the original show.
    • In the episode "Something Smells," Patrick mentions how he does not have a sister, contrary to Sam's existence.
      • The inconsistency in "Something Smells" could be seen as Patrick not remembering Sam, from either his low intelligence or that Sam was lost in the surf when Patrick was very young.
    • According to Vincent Waller, they were considering adding Sam to The Patrick Star Show, but she did not appear at the start of the series, with Squidina Star instead taking her place as Patrick's sister.
      • Sam would later appear in The Patrick Star Show, albeit as a background character, in the episodes "Klopnodian Heritage Festival" and "Tying the Klop-Knot."
