Gary the Snail is SpongeBob's pet house snail. Gary can only say "meow", while sea worms in the show commonly bark, which indicates that snails are the ocean equivalent of cats and worms are dogs. In the show, there is only one cat named Mr. Whiskers. In some episodes Gary has been known to say something other than "meow" but this is rare. Gary is the sixth or seventh main character of the show; but, he has the fifth most appearances in the SpongeBob series.
Gary appears as a non-playable character in Nicktoons Unite!. He first appears at the beginning of the game where he and SpongeBob head outside. SpongeBob asked Gary what they were going to do, and somehow SpongeBob made up out of his "meow" to visit Patrick. When Jimmy wanted SpongeBob to come he said to Gary to watch the house for him.
Gary also appeared in the loading screen, trying to get towards his food.

Gary appears as a playable character in Super Brawl 3: Just Got Real, designed to appear more like a realistic snail. He attacks by using his eyes and pans. His special move, Snail Flail, turns his shell into a large spiked ball, which he uses to damage foes.
