* BigBad: Of Acts 1-5 since he handily usurps the role of antagonist from the Black Queen and King in the Kids' session. He kidnaps Dad Egbert, causes the Reckoning instead of the Black King, and goes on a rampage in Acts 4 and 5.

** Has the role usurped from him in turn in Act 5 where Doc Scratch (and by extension Lord English) proved to be the true BigBad, whereas Jack is merely a very dangerous threat.

!!Jack Noir/Sovereign Slayer/Bec Noir/The Cancer

to:

!!Jack Noir/Sovereign Slayer/Bec Noir/The CancerNoir



* AchillesHeel: Besides the omnipotence, which definitely sucks for everyone, the Bec prototyping did actually grant Jack something that can only be beneficial to the protagonists; he possesses a fierce subconscious loyalty to Jade and is completely unable to bring himself to harm her. [[RuleOfFunny Also he has this weird obsession with dog treats]].
** This eventually came back to haunt him - Jade and Dave fought him together and Dave outright abuses this weakness by shielding himself with Jade. So Jack is pretty much in a battle he can only escape from.
** After that, he was stuck following Jade around like a lost puppy and obeying her commands because of his loyalty.
** After ''that'', while he was able to engineer a way to kill her, his loyalty made her carry her dying body to her Quest Bed, allowing her to survive and ascend to God Tier.
* AGodAmI: The narration heavily implies that he regards himself as a god after being prototyped with Becquerel.
* AlasPoorVillain: He doesn't die, but it's hard not to feel sorry for him when PM chops off his arm and prepares to finish him off, especially with how genuinely terrified he looks over it.
* AllergicToLove: Both versions of Jack have shown disgust and hatred towards red romance, so it's not all that surprising that when he falls for an angry PM, his first reaction is to run.

** Pre-scratch Jack does display some kindness to Jade... of a sort, and only really because Bec's prototyping essentially {{Brainwashed}} Jack. Even then, he's still kind of a jerk. When his form of kindness is ''not'' immediately killing someone, well, that says a lot.
* AndThenWhat: Faces this dilemma after being prototyped with Bec. Killing and destruction are the only ways he knows to pass the time, but he has to be careful so that he doesn't accidentally destroy ''everything'' with his omnipotence, because then there will be nothing left for him to destroy. However just as he's run out of things to blow up, PM shows up and Jack falls in love with her.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: His insatiable lust for destruction exists because he's the embodiment of the cancer in the kids' universe.
* AppealToForce: The Black Queen is able to humiliate Jack only so long as she can overpower him; once he pulls out The Bunny, he overpowers and kills his queen without a second thought before stealing her Prototyping ring, leading to ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers.



* BadJobWorseUniform: He ''hates'' the outfits the Black Queen forces him to wear.
* BerserkButton: After the fourth prototyping, harming Jade eventually develops into this.
** FromBadToWorse. See RoaringRampageOfRevenge below.
** According to WordOfGod, it was specifically the clown costumes that finally pushed Jack over the edge. That's how Gamzee made the cancer "terminal" by causing John's fear of harlequins and Jack's humiliation.
* BestialityIsDepraved: Both Spades Slick and B2 Jack Noir have "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006796 Terrier Fancy]]" as their PornStash, which puts a whole different spin on the main B1 Noir's instant attraction to PM.
* BigBad: Handily [[StealthPun usurps]] this role from the Black Queen and King in the Kids' session, and is the BigBad of Act 4.
** Has the role usurped from him in turn in Act 5 where Doc Scratch (and by extension Lord English) proved to be the true BigBad, whereas Jack is merely a very dangerous threat.
* BishonenLine: He looked positively monstrous between John's One-Armed Harlequin prototyping, Dave's Seppucrow, and Rose's Eldritch Cat Princess etching their features onto him. After Bec is prototyped and Jade enters the medium, he loses the tentacles and cat features, and what was left of the harlequin outfit and becomes overall sleeker and meaner.
** However, when you see him up close in detail in [S] Cascade, he is one ugly, scary dog. So, averted.
* BroughtDownToNormal: As of [S] Collide, PM has finally defeated him by slicing off the arm that wears the ring and rendering him back to his old self, to which she knocks him out.
* TheCaligula: He already had the personality, then he got hold of the [[GameBreaker Black Queen's Ring]] and became the Sovereign Slayer. After being prototyped with Bec, he becomes even more unstable, and also has dog-like thoughts from time to time. And once he enters the troll's session, he doesn't hold anything back, destroying the troll's lands and then their Prospit and Derse while brutally murdering any dreamself who happens to be awake at the moment, as Tavros, Karkat, Feferi, and Nepeta find out the hard way.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Shades of this are creeping into his personality as of the fourth prototyping. Suffice it to say that the combination of limitless power and canine urges isn't doing much for his mental stability.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Jack has a knack for arriving at ''exactly'' the wrong time. Justified though, because of TimeyWimeyBall.
* CoolShades: After the fourth prototyping, he steals Bro's as a trophy. Later on, he realizes taking clothing from dead enemies is stupid and takes them off.
* CombatPragmatist: When he wants to be. Faced with an epic dual between him, Rose, and John, he... uses his teleportation power to warp behind John and stab him the back, killing him instantly. Likewise, rather than fight Vriska immediately, he first follows her trail back to finish off the other trolls, since they're an easier target and still pose a threat.
* [[CreateYourOwnVillain Create Your Own Hero]]: Many times, with PM, Aradia, and all of the kids. It's fair to say that everyone who isn't directly killed by Jack becomes much more powerful because of his actions, and even some of the ones that he does kill become much more powerful.
** He's also partially the result of an attempt to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this by Vriska.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: He's presented as the primary antagonist of Acts 4 and 5. It's not until late into Act 5 that Lord English is established as a GreaterScopeVillain that who was always meant to supersede Jack's position as the BigBad. Vriska herself expected this, '''merely''' describing Jack as "a murderous asshole" compared to the monstrous Lord English.
* DistinguishingMark: When Jack enters the troll universe, he's seen with a bloodied hand. This serves to distinguish the "future" Jack with the "present" Jack, who lacks the blood on his hand. The blood is eventually revealed to have come from WV.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Look at the rest of his tropes, then remember that Jack's reaction to Lord English's actions in Act6 Part 2 EOA was ''shock and fear.''
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Jack is [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007211 bewildered]] that a little thing like murdering all her friends provokes such an UnstoppableRage in PM.



* FlashStep: Skilled enough with it to keep up with Bro and Davesprite at the same time, ''before'' he was prototyped with Bec.
* FoeYay: [[invoked]]His relationship with the Black Queen is [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004295 a dead ringer for kismesisitude]]. Unlike Spades Slick & Snowman, though he kills his Black Queen before this can be shown.
** And now with PM after she followed him [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge to get revenge]]. A stunned Jack [[color:red:♥]]'s PM now, but PM [[color:black:♠]]'s Jack.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Goes from a glorified paper-pusher to an nigh omnipotent AxCrazy OneManArmy who destroys planets.
* FullFrontalAssault: Okay, his species has internal genitals, so he isn't showing anything but black carapace, but he's still a member of a normally-clothed race going around with only a scrap of clothing since he ripped off his gaudy uniform.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Initially from the perspective of the Trolls. They just beat the final boss, are about to claim their great reward, and then suddenly an even more powerful opponent comes out of nowhere, kills all of them, and destroys every planet in their game.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: Evil, black, feathered wings, befitting his prophesied role in the Troll session as the [[LightIsNotGood Lord of all Angels]].
* GrudgingThankYou: After Mr. Egbert sets his hat on fire, sprays shaving cream all over it and stomps it into ruination, Jack allows him to leave. He really hated that hat.
* HandicappedBadass: The prototyping removed one of his arms, not that it seems to hinder him any.
* HeroKiller: He's already wiped out entire armies and planets, but killing Bro, one of the most badass characters in the story, qualifies him beyond a doubt. He then goes off to stab John through the heart and to kill another of Dave's timeline offshoots. Then, he stabs Mom, Dad and John (again).
** Possibly tops this in his brutal onscreen murders of the dreamselves of Feferi and Nepeta, two trolls who before playing Sgrub were capable of pulling whales around and murdering animals with no weapons at all.
** Not to mention reducing an entire ''army'' of [[MesACrowd Aradiabots]] to scrap metal, psychic powers and [[SuperStrength robotic strength]] be damned.
** To clarify with John and Rose, one was God Tier and wielding an [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Hammer]], the other had gone Grimdark and was wielding the power of ancient [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations.]] John gets taken out ''seconds'' into the fight, and Rose doesn't last much longer than that.
** His total body count, roughly in order: the Black Queen, the Black King, WV's united Prospitian/Dersite army, most of the population of Prospit, Jade's dream self, Bro, numerous salamanders, John, an alternate Dave, Dad, Mom, John ''again'', Rose, Dave, the Courtyard Droll, the White King, the White Queen, AR, mortally wounding WV, the entire army of Aradiabots, all the trolls' dreamselves save Vriska, all the inhabitants of the trolls' Prospit and Derse, all the inhabitants of the trolls' Lands, and [[ApocalypseHow every single instance of Earth's entire universe.]]
** As of [S] Game Over, he has also killed actual Dave. Although he did have help from PM.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: After he becomes the Sovereign Slayer. It's quite telling how in the second recap, every mention of his motivation is followed by "only he knows."
* HonorBeforeReason: When the Parcel Mistress hands over the White King's and Queen's crowns, he hands over Jade's package, just as he promised. Even though it contained the obscenely powerful weapon that precipitated his rise to power in the first place, and the Parcel Mistress certainly couldn't have ''forced'' Jack to give it up. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003861 This turns out to be]] ''[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003861 a very bad idea.]]''
** On the other hand, Andrew has suggested that he believed the bunny would remain under his control, regardless.
** Also, returning Bro's sword to Bro before engaging him in a fight. Obviously he could've killed Bro there and then, but he really wanted a compelling duel.
* HumanoidAbomination: Thanks to the ring, which brings him ever closer to the "abomination" part of this trope with each prototyping.
* IHaveManyNames: Jack Noir, Sovereign Slayer, Bec Noir, "the demon", "the cancer", and possibly Lord of Angels.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: His default state when wearing the ring. The prototyped Seppucrow causes him to sheath his sword through his chest.
* IronicEcho: Troll-session Noir cuts his right hand to show his red blood to Karkat, proving that he's NotSoDifferent. Kids-session Noir has a red blood-covered right hand when he enters the Troll universe and starts killing everyone, including Dream!Karkat.
** Another echo between (a) the end of the Midnight Crew intermission when Spades Slick poses over the bar scanner with one gouged eye, a missing arms, and a pattern of red laser light on his head and (b) the end of "[S] Jack: Ascend," when Jack is in the same pose after putting on the ring with blood splattered on his forehead.
* IronicEchoCut: The same bloodied hand above is featured in a cut in "[S] Cascade" from when his hands are covered in the blood Jade's killer to when he enters the Troll session right after having rammed his fist through WV.

* KickTheDog: When he goes to Prospit and proceeds to kill all the Prospit carapaces, and later when he ambushes and kills Mom and Dad.
* KlingonPromotion
* KnifeNut: "Here, stick this in your pipe [[{{Metaphorgotten}} and bleed to death slowly.]]"
* LogicalWeakness: He may be omnipotent, but his powers come from the Black Queen's Ring. removing ring (or the arm wearing the ring) means that he's BroughtDownToNormal. However, it's easier said than done since he is omnipotent. The only person able to exploit this is PM, who's similarly empowered by the White Queen's Ring.
* LonelyAtTheTop: He's been bored out of his skull ever since he became omnipotent.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Towards PM after she's prototyped (she doesn't feel the same way) and then Ms. Paint after he's defeated (she ''might'' feel the same way, especially since he's an alternate version of her now dead boyfriend).
* LoveRedeems: Seems to be heading in this direction, between Bec's post-prototyping loyalty seemingly becoming genuine in "[S] Cascade" and his VillainousCrush on PM making it hard for him to fight her.
** Later, after [S] Collide, he seems to have fallen in love with Ms. Paint.
* MarathonBoss: His duel with PM has been going on for ''two years'' in-universe.
* MaybeEverAfter: With Ms. Paint in the end.



** MeaningfulRename: For his new name, Sovereign Slayer, or SS = Spades Slick
** Also Bec Noir = BN, chess notion for Black Knight.
** OddNameOut: Unlike the other Agents, he doesn't keep his initials when his name changes. Also, he is the only one with a name and not a title. It is possible that he had an "SS" title in addition to his name, but he doesn't.
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Ever since Bec was prototyped, Jack has found himself thinking like a dog at times and sees Jade as his friend and master.
* MonsterClown: Jack, along with all the Dersites, wear clown -- er, ''[[InsistentTerminology harlequin]]'' outfits because John prototyped the Kernelsprite with a harlequin doll, giving them its traits. Subverted in Jack's case, he ''hates'' the clothes and gets rid of them whenever possible.
** Though he still wears its tattered remains when he becomes the Sovereign Slayer.
* MoralityPet: Played for laughs. "You can never stay mad at [[DemonicDummy Cal]]. He is a true friend. The only you have ever known."
** ZigZagged with Jade. He can't bring himself to hurt her because of his prototyping with Bec, and constantly has to suppress urges to gush over her like a puppy. So he orders DD to kill her instead. Except that when someone actually manages it, he's so upset that he takes her corpse to her Quest Bed, reviving her as a ridiculously powerful God Tier First Guardian.
* NiceHat: Although he doesn't like it that much, it's required of him to wear it when his monarch is looking. After becoming Bec Noir and Killing John's Dad, he took his Fedora. Then he pulls it off when he realizes that collecting trophies is stupid.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Nice job waking up and empowering the one person who could possibly stop you (temporarily).
** And again at the end of Act 5, when after Jade is killed, Bec's influence causes him to take her to her Quest Bed. Since Jade's dream self was currently the second prototyping of Becsprite, when she revives she [[SuperpowerLottery has both God Tier Witch of Space AND First Guardian powers]].[[note]][[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And dog ears]].[[/note]]
* NoFourthWall: Literally, his CUBICLE OF VIGILANCE is missing its fourth wall. Jack is pissed about that. It was later used by Andrew to provide a recap.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: See his fight with John and Rose.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Was one originally, although he outright says that he'd rather kill someone than do any paperwork they may require of him.
* OddNameOut: The only carapace to actually have a name, outside of the Midnight Crew.
* OhCrap: He gets one when he realizes the bunny is loyal to John, again when the ring-wearing ([[RoaringRampageOfRevenge and incredibly pissed]]) Prospitian Monarch appears, and again when he witnesses Lord English's BreathWeapon.
* OmnicidalManiac: He'll kill anything that isn't Jade.
* OneWingedAngel: Happens after he puts on the dead Queen's ring.
** He does it a second time when Bec is prototyped with Jade's kernelsprite. Arguably more of a BishonenLine, since he loses the tentacles.
* OutsideContextProblem: For the Troll session.
* PetTheDog: See GrudgingThankYou. Also his inability to kill Jade, though this is due to Bec's influence more than anything. Averted right after, where he just asks Draconian Dignitary to do it for him... which unfortunately bites him in the ass.
** All the more so: he is the reason Jade was resurrected, and he appeared to be genuinely sad and angry about her death, almost as if he started believing the urges Becquerel gave him.
* PhysicalGod: As of his fourth prototyping. He's the second most powerful character in the comic, and the only one more powerful than him is an immortal demon that consumes universes.
* PickyEater: As shown by the Post-Scratch Human Session version, although implicitly applicable to all versions, Jack will NOT eat fresh produce, only [[RealMenEatMeat meat]]. Justified: as he himself indicates via a display of sharp teeth, he's an obligate carnivore by biology. Or, whatever the Dersite equivalent of biology is.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Once Jade is killed (by his own orders, no less), Bec's influence on him sets him off on one which leads him to Earth and ultimately the troll session.
* ScarfOfAssKicking: After killing Dad and Mom, he took Mom's Scarf. He then promptly pulls it off, realizing it looks stupid.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: In the Kids' session, his only real restraints are making sure he doesn't destroy everything to the point that he doesn't have anything left ''to'' destroy and Bec's influence stopping him from killing Jade. In the Trolls' session, he has no restraints.
* SealedEvilInADuel: While we're not sure how much longer it will last (it has been interrupted several times), Jack is less of a threat now that he's diverted by [[UnstoppableMailman PM]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge hunting him through the Furthest Ring]].
* SinisterSilhouettes: Becomes synonymous with [[FromBadToWorse everything going straight to hell.]]
* [[invoked]]ThatOneAttack: Red Miles. Strong enough to destroy the entire universe, and more. When they say no one can escape the Miles, they aren't kidding.
* TheStarscream: All instances of Skaia have a Jack Noir, who will usually contact the players somehow and help them execute a plan to [[SkippableBoss exile the Black Queen before they have to fight her]]. The Kids' Jack Noir is [[OffTheRails a freak case]] in that getting Liv Tyler/The Robo-Bunny allowed him to go after the Queen without the players' help, thus his ascension to BigBad.
* TookALevelInBadass: Before: ObstructiveBureaucrat. After: [[KnightOfCerebus where to]] [[OneManArmy even begin?]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Licorice Scottie Dogs. Both the Troll & post-scratch versions of Noir have been seen hording them, though it never came into the story for the main pre-scratch version.
* TwitchyEye: Gets one [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007255 when he first meets John and Rose again]] after having killed them two years before. (In John's case, Jack has killed him ''twice''.)
* UnorthodoxSheathing: Keeps his sword impaled in his chest.
* UpToEleven: Does this almost literally when he changes from being a metaphorical Jack of Spades (10) to an Ace (11) when he steals the ring.
* VictoryIsBoring: Shortly after killing John's Dad and Rose's Mom: "God you are so bored."
* VillainousBreakdown: The last two years of pursuit by PM have taken the edge off Jack's OmnicidalManiac tendencies. Now he's just confused and a little freaked out, and really wants to find someplace to hide and catch his breath.
* VillainProtagonist: Clearly allied with Derse, but nevertheless becomes the seventh playable character (and the fifth to be [[HelloInsertNameHere named by the player]]).
** Done ''deliberately''. Mostly as a preview of his rise to power. Even Spades Slick in the Intermission was part of it.

* MonsterClown: Jack, along with all the Dersites, wear clown -- er, ''[[InsistentTerminology harlequin]]'' outfits because John prototyped the Kernelsprite with a harlequin doll, giving them its traits. Subverted in Jack's case, he ''hates'' the clothes and gets rid of them whenever possible.
** Though he still wears its tattered remains when he becomes the Sovereign Slayer.
* MoralityPet: Played for laughs. "You can never stay mad at [[DemonicDummy Cal]]. He is a true friend. The only you have ever known."
** ZigZagged with Jade. He can't bring himself to hurt her because of his prototyping with Bec, and constantly has to suppress urges to gush over her like a puppy. So he orders DD to kill her instead. Except that when someone actually manages it, he's so upset that he takes her corpse to her Quest Bed, reviving her as a ridiculously powerful God Tier First Guardian.
* NiceHat: Although he doesn't like it that much, it's required of him to wear it when his monarch is looking. After becoming Bec Noir and Killing John's Dad, he took his Fedora. Then he pulls it off when he realizes that collecting trophies is stupid.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Nice job waking up and empowering the one person who could possibly stop you (temporarily).
** And again at the end of Act 5, when after Jade is killed, Bec's influence causes him to take her to her Quest Bed. Since Jade's dream self was currently the second prototyping of Becsprite, when she revives she [[SuperpowerLottery has both God Tier Witch of Space AND First Guardian powers]].[[note]][[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And dog ears]].[[/note]]
* NoFourthWall: Literally, his CUBICLE OF VIGILANCE is missing its fourth wall. Jack is pissed about that. It was later used by Andrew to provide a recap.
* NoNonsenseNemesis: See his fight with John and Rose.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Was one originally, although he outright says that he'd rather kill someone than do any paperwork they may require of him.
* OddNameOut: The only carapace to actually have a name, outside of the Midnight Crew.
* OhCrap: He gets one when he realizes the bunny is loyal to John, again when the ring-wearing ([[RoaringRampageOfRevenge and incredibly pissed]]) Prospitian Monarch appears, and again when he witnesses Lord English's BreathWeapon.
* OmnicidalManiac: He'll kill anything that isn't Jade.
* OneWingedAngel: Happens after he puts on the dead Queen's ring.
** He does it a second time when Bec is prototyped with Jade's kernelsprite. Arguably more of a BishonenLine, since he loses the tentacles.
* OutsideContextProblem: For the Troll session.
* PetTheDog: See GrudgingThankYou. Also his inability to kill Jade, though this is due to Bec's influence more than anything. Averted right after, where he just asks Draconian Dignitary to do it for him... which unfortunately bites him in the ass.
** All the more so: he is the reason Jade was resurrected, and he appeared to be genuinely sad and angry about her death, almost as if he started believing the urges Becquerel gave him.
* PhysicalGod: As of his fourth prototyping.
StealthExpert: He's infiltrated Prospit in multiple iterations, despite being a famous political figure of the second most powerful character in the comic, and the only one more powerful than him is an immortal demon that consumes universes.
* PickyEater: As shown by the Post-Scratch Human Session version, although implicitly applicable to all versions, Jack will NOT eat fresh produce, only [[RealMenEatMeat meat]]. Justified: as he himself indicates via a display of sharp teeth, he's an obligate carnivore by biology. Or, whatever the Dersite equivalent of biology is.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Once Jade is killed (by his own orders, no less), Bec's influence on him sets him off on one which leads him to Earth and ultimately the troll session.
* ScarfOfAssKicking: After killing Dad and Mom, he took Mom's Scarf. He then promptly pulls it off, realizing it looks stupid.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: In the Kids' session, his only real restraints are making sure he doesn't destroy everything to the point that he doesn't have anything left ''to'' destroy and Bec's influence stopping him from killing Jade. In the Trolls' session, he has no restraints.
* SealedEvilInADuel: While we're not sure how much longer it will last (it has been interrupted several times), Jack is less of a threat now that he's diverted by [[UnstoppableMailman PM]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge hunting him through the Furthest Ring]].
* SinisterSilhouettes: Becomes synonymous with [[FromBadToWorse everything going straight to hell.]]
* [[invoked]]ThatOneAttack: Red Miles. Strong enough to destroy the entire universe, and more. When they say no one can escape the Miles, they aren't kidding.
* TheStarscream: All instances of Skaia have a Jack Noir, who will usually contact the players somehow and help them execute a plan to [[SkippableBoss exile the Black Queen before they have to fight her]]. The Kids' Jack Noir is [[OffTheRails a freak case]] in that getting Liv Tyler/The Robo-Bunny allowed him to go after the Queen without the players' help, thus his ascension to BigBad.
* TookALevelInBadass: Before: ObstructiveBureaucrat. After: [[KnightOfCerebus where to]] [[OneManArmy even begin?]]
opposing kingdom.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Licorice Scottie Dogs. Both the Troll & post-scratch versions of Noir have been seen hording them, though it never came into the story for the main pre-scratch version.
* TwitchyEye: Gets one [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007255 when he first meets John and Rose again]] after having killed them two years before. (In John's case, Jack has killed him ''twice''.)
* UnorthodoxSheathing: Keeps his sword impaled in his chest.
* UpToEleven: Does this almost literally when he changes from being a metaphorical Jack of Spades (10) to an Ace (11) when he steals the ring.
* VictoryIsBoring: Shortly after killing John's Dad and Rose's Mom: "God you are so bored."
* VillainousBreakdown: The last two years of pursuit by PM have taken the edge off Jack's OmnicidalManiac tendencies. Now he's just confused and a little freaked out, and really wants to find someplace to hide and catch his breath.

* VillainProtagonist: Clearly allied with Derse, but nevertheless becomes the seventh playable character (and the fifth to be [[HelloInsertNameHere named by the player]]).
player]]). Happens again come Jack's Jailbreak adventure.
** Done ''deliberately''. Mostly as a preview of his rise to power. Even Spades Slick in the Intermission was part of it.



** Interestingly, he's still playable after gaining First Guardian powers.

to:


!! Pre-Scratch Jack Noir/Sovereign Slayer/Bec Noir/The Cancer
* AchillesHeel: Besides the omnipotence, which definitely sucks for everyone, the Bec prototyping did actually grant Jack something that can only be beneficial to the protagonists; he possesses a fierce subconscious loyalty to Jade and is completely unable to bring himself to harm her. [[RuleOfFunny Also he has this weird obsession with dog treats]].
** Interestingly, This eventually came back to haunt him - Jade and Dave fought him together and Dave outright abuses this weakness by shielding himself with Jade. So Jack is pretty much in a battle he can only escape from.
** After that, he was stuck following Jade around like a lost puppy and obeying her commands because of his loyalty.
** After ''that'', while he was able to engineer a way to kill her, his loyalty made her carry her dying body to her Quest Bed, allowing her to survive and ascend to God Tier.
* AGodAmI: The narration heavily implies that he regards himself as a god after being prototyped with Becquerel.
* AlasPoorVillain: He doesn't die, but it's hard not to feel sorry for him when PM chops off his arm and prepares to finish him off, especially with how genuinely terrified he looks over it.
* AllergicToLove: Both versions of Jack have shown disgust and hatred towards red romance, so it's not all that surprising that when he falls for an angry PM, his first reaction is to run.
* AndThenWhat: Faces this dilemma after being prototyped with Bec. Killing and destruction are the only ways he knows to pass the time, but he has to be careful so that he doesn't accidentally destroy ''everything'' with his omnipotence, because then there will be nothing left for him to destroy. However just as he's run out of things to blow up, PM shows up and Jack falls in love with her.
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: His insatiable lust for destruction exists because he's the embodiment of the cancer in the kids' universe.
* AppealToForce: The Black Queen is able to humiliate Jack only so long as she can overpower him; once he pulls out The Bunny, he overpowers and kills his queen without a second thought before stealing her Prototyping ring, leading to ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers.
* BadJobWorseUniform: He ''hates'' the outfits the Black Queen forces him to wear.
* BerserkButton: After the fourth prototyping, harming Jade eventually develops into this.
** According to WordOfGod, it was specifically the clown costumes that finally pushed Jack over the edge. That's how Gamzee made the cancer "terminal" by causing John's fear of harlequins and Jack's humiliation.
* BestialityIsDepraved: Both Spades Slick and B2 Jack Noir have "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006796 Terrier Fancy]]" as their PornStash, which puts a whole different spin on the main B1 Noir's instant attraction to PM.
* BigBad: Handily usurps this role from the Black Queen and King in the Kids' session, and is the BigBad of Act 4.
** Has the role usurped from him in turn in Act 5 where Doc Scratch (and by extension Lord English) proved to be the true BigBad, whereas Jack is merely a very dangerous threat.
* BishonenLine: He looked positively monstrous between John's One-Armed Harlequin prototyping, Dave's Seppucrow, and Rose's Eldritch Cat Princess etching their features onto him. After Bec is prototyped and Jade enters the medium, he loses the tentacles and cat features, and what was left of the harlequin outfit and becomes overall sleeker and meaner.
** However, when you see him up close in detail in [S] Cascade, he is one ugly, scary dog. So, averted.
* BroughtDownToNormal: As of [S] Collide, PM has finally defeated him by slicing off the arm that wears the ring and rendering him back to his old self, to which she knocks him out.
* TheCaligula: He already had the personality, then he got hold of the [[GameBreaker Black Queen's Ring]] and became the Sovereign Slayer. After being prototyped with Bec, he becomes even more unstable, and also has dog-like thoughts from time to time. And once he enters the troll's session, he doesn't hold anything back, destroying the troll's lands and then their Prospit and Derse while brutally murdering any dreamself who happens to be awake at the moment, as Tavros, Karkat, Feferi, and Nepeta find out the hard way.
* CharacterCheck: His excessive prototyping and desire for trophies leads to him looking extremely ridiculous; upon realizing this, he remembers his hatred for stupid outfits and sheds all his accessories.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Shades of this are creeping into his personality as of the fourth prototyping. Suffice it to say that the combination of limitless power and canine urges isn't doing much for his mental stability.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Jack has a knack for arriving at ''exactly'' the wrong time. Justified though, because of TimeyWimeyBall.
* CoolShades: After the fourth prototyping, he steals Bro's as a trophy. Later on, he realizes taking clothing from dead enemies is stupid and takes them off.
* CombatPragmatist: When he wants to be. Faced with an epic dual between him, Rose, and John, he... uses his teleportation power to warp behind John and stab him the back, killing him instantly. Likewise, rather than fight Vriska immediately, he first follows her trail back to finish off the other trolls, since they're an easier target and still pose a threat.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Many times, with PM, Aradia, and all of the kids. It's fair to say that everyone who isn't directly killed by Jack becomes much more powerful because of his actions, and even some of the ones that he does kill become much more powerful.
** He's also partially the result of an attempt to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this by Vriska.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: He's presented as the primary antagonist of Acts 4 and 5. It's not until late into Act 5 that Lord English is established as a GreaterScopeVillain that who was always meant to supersede Jack's position as the BigBad. Vriska herself expected this, '''merely''' describing Jack as "a murderous asshole" compared to the monstrous Lord English.
* DistinguishingMark: When Jack enters the troll universe, he's seen with a bloodied hand. This serves to distinguish the "future" Jack with the "present" Jack, who lacks the blood on his hand. The blood is eventually revealed to have come from WV.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Look at the rest of his tropes, then remember that Jack's reaction to Lord English's actions in Act 6 Part 2 EOA was ''shock and fear.''
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Jack is [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007211 bewildered]] that a little thing like murdering all her friends provokes such an UnstoppableRage in PM.
* FlashStep: Skilled enough with it to keep up with Bro and Davesprite at the same time, ''before'' he was prototyped with Bec.
* ForTheEvulz: Upon gaining omnipotence, Jack goes on a killing spree throughout the Medium not to consolidate more power, but to stave off boredom.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Goes from a glorified paper-pusher to an nigh omnipotent AxCrazy OneManArmy who destroys planets.
* FullFrontalAssault: Okay, his species has internal genitals, so he isn't showing anything but black carapace, but
he's still playable a member of a normally-clothed race going around with only a scrap of clothing since he ripped off his gaudy uniform.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Initially from the perspective of the Trolls. They just beat the final boss, are about to claim their great reward, and then suddenly an even more powerful opponent comes out of nowhere, kills all of them, and destroys every planet in their game.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: Evil, black, feathered wings, befitting his prophesied role in the Troll session as the [[LightIsNotGood Lord of all Angels]].
* GrudgingThankYou: After Mr. Egbert sets his hat on fire, sprays shaving cream all over it and stomps it into ruination, Jack allows him to leave. He really hated that hat.
* HandicappedBadass: The prototyping removed one of his arms, not that it seems to hinder him any.
* HonorBeforeReason: When the Parcel Mistress hands over the White King's and Queen's crowns, he hands over Jade's package, just as he promised. Even though it contained the obscenely powerful weapon that precipitated his rise to power in the first place, and the Parcel Mistress certainly couldn't have ''forced'' Jack to give it up. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003861 This turns out to be]] ''[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003861 a very bad idea.]]''
** Also, returning Bro's sword to Bro before engaging him in a fight. Obviously he could've killed Bro there and then, but he really wanted a compelling duel.
* HumanoidAbomination: Thanks to the ring, which brings him ever closer to the "abomination" part of this trope with each prototyping.
* IHaveManyNames: Jack Noir, Sovereign Slayer, Bec Noir, "the demon", "the cancer", and possibly Lord of Angels.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: His default state when wearing the ring. The prototyped Seppucrow causes him to sheath his sword through his chest.
* IronicEcho: Troll-session Noir cuts his right hand to show his red blood to Karkat, proving that he's NotSoDifferent. Kids-session Noir has a red blood-covered right hand when he enters the Troll universe and starts killing everyone, including Dream!Karkat.
** Another echo between (a) the end of the Midnight Crew intermission when Spades Slick poses over the bar scanner with one gouged eye, a missing arms, and a pattern of red laser light on his head and (b) the end of "[S] Jack: Ascend," when Jack is in the same pose
after gaining putting on the ring with blood splattered on his forehead.
* IronicEchoCut: The same bloodied hand above is featured in a cut in "[S] Cascade" from when his hands are covered in the blood Jade's killer to when he enters the Troll session right after having rammed his fist through WV.
* KickTheDog: When he goes to Prospit and proceeds to kill all the Prospit carapaces, and later when he ambushes and kills Mom and Dad.
* KlingonPromotion: Upon killing the Black Queen, he takes her ring and takes full control of the Dersite monarchy.
* LogicalWeakness: He may be omnipotent, but his powers come from the Black Queen's Ring. removing ring (or the arm wearing the ring) means that he's BroughtDownToNormal. However, it's easier said than done since he is omnipotent. The only person able to exploit this is PM, who's similarly empowered by the White Queen's Ring.
* LonelyAtTheTop: He's been bored out of his skull ever since he became omnipotent.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Towards PM after she's prototyped (she doesn't feel the same way) and then Ms. Paint after he's defeated (she ''might'' feel the same way, especially since he's an alternate version of her now dead boyfriend).
* LoveIsAWeakness: Jack is actively afraid of his feelings for Jade and tries to have her killed. Similarly, his attraction to PM leads to him sparing her and later incites him to spend three years running from her instead of fighting.
* LoveRedeems: Seems to be heading in this direction, between Bec's post-prototyping loyalty seemingly becoming genuine in "[S] Cascade" and his VillainousCrush on PM making it hard for him to fight her.
** Later, after [S] Collide, he seems to have fallen in love with Ms. Paint.
* MarathonBoss: His duel with PM has been goes on for ''three years'' in-universe.
* MaybeEverAfter: With Ms. Paint in the end.
** MeaningfulRename: For his new name, Sovereign Slayer, or SS = Spades Slick
** Also Bec Noir = BN, chess notion for Black Knight.
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Ever since Bec was prototyped, Jack has found himself thinking like a dog at times and sees Jade as his friend and master.
* MonsterClown: Jack, along with all the Dersites, wear clown -- er, ''[[InsistentTerminology harlequin]]'' outfits because John prototyped the Kernelsprite with a harlequin doll, giving them its traits. Subverted in Jack's case, he ''hates'' the clothes and gets rid of them whenever possible.
** Though he still wears its tattered remains when he becomes the Sovereign Slayer.
* MoralityPet: Played for laughs. "You can never stay mad at [[DemonicDummy Cal]]. He is a true friend. The only you have ever known."
** ZigZagged with Jade. He can't bring himself to hurt her because of his prototyping with Bec, and constantly has to suppress urges to gush over her like a puppy. So he orders DD to kill her instead. Except that when someone actually manages it, he's so upset that he takes her corpse to her Quest Bed, reviving her as a ridiculously powerful God Tier First Guardian.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Nice job waking up and empowering the one person who could possibly stop you (temporarily).

Justified: as he himself indicates via a display of sharp teeth, he's an obligate carnivore by biology. Or, whatever the Dersite equivalent of biology is.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Once Jade is killed (by his own orders, no less), Bec's influence on him sets him off on one which leads him to kill the Exiles, destroy the Trolls' lands, and destroy a universe.
* ScarfOfAssKicking: After killing Dad and Mom, he took Mom's Scarf. He then promptly pulls it off, realizing it looks stupid.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: In the Kids' session, his only real restraints are making sure he doesn't destroy everything to the point that he doesn't have anything left ''to'' destroy and Bec's influence stopping him from killing Jade. In the Trolls' session, he has no restraints.
* SealedEvilInADuel: While we're not sure how much longer it will last (it has been interrupted several times), Jack is less of a threat now that he's diverted by [[UnstoppableMailman PM]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge hunting him through the Furthest Ring]].

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: This version of Jack is already fully aware the success or failure of Derse rests solely on the heroes and their actions. So what does he do? Plans on killing them before they even enter the game, severely reducing their chances of winning.
