Btvs This article is about a subject whose real name is unknown, and is known only by a title, nickname or alias.

Shrimp Worlds refers to two dimensions, which are primarily identified by the amount of shrimp which live there. Specifically, these two dimensions are:

  • World Without Shrimp is a quiet little agrarian world, with little unusual properties except the absence of shrimp.[1]
  • World With Nothing But Shrimp contains literally nothing other than shrimp and as a result is sometimes considered boring.[2]

The two dimensions can be used to illustrate the concept of alternate dimensions.[3]


In Jonathan Levinson's world, Anya said "You could have, like, a world with no shrimp. Or with, you know, nothing but shrimp" when explaining the concept of alternate dimensions.[4]

Anya speculated that Olaf could have been sent to the World Without Shrimp.[5]

When Illyria talked about moving between dimensions, she said that she went to the World With Nothing But Shrimp but "tired of it quickly".[6] She later lamented being unable to travel between dimensions and missing the dimensions, "even the one made of shrimp."[7]

Willow Rosenberg opened a portal to the World Without Shrimp, which she described as "a quiet little agrarian world. Nothing special about it, except they don't have shrimp."[8]

Other Mentions of Shrimp

  • Anya said that Xander "doesn't travel well, like fine shrimp".[9]
  • Willow found a spell to “communicate with shrimp”.[10]
