Mad Jack The Pirate
Mad Jack
  • Beard of Evil: Despite being the main protagonist, he qualifies because of his greed.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing ever goes his way.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Most of his dialogue consists of snarky remarks.
  • Dirty Coward: He's tried to abandon Snuk in order to save his own skin at times.
  • Greed: His chief motivator.
  • It's All About Me: Jack is an extremely selfish pirate.
  • Jerkass: He's very unpleasant, obnoxious and greedy.


  • Adorkable: He's a chubby, awkward rat with a sweet, friendly, endearing personality.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He quickly became smitten with Jack when Jack kissed him back during CPR. Could be bi, considering he's become smitten with females as well (maybe even pansexual as he's keen on the idea of marrying a sea monster).
  • Animals Not to Scale: He's pretty big for a rat.
  • Bamboo Technology: Adept at crafting this as shown in the episode Shipwacked.
  • Chick Magnet: He claims to have a thing called animal magnetism when Jack asks why women like him so much.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Apparently, he thinks marrying a sea monster is a good thing.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has his share of sarcastic moments:
    Jack: With a magical device like that I could do all sorts of unspeakable things.
    Snuk: You already do all sorts of unspeakable things.
  • Advertisement:
  • Extreme Doormat: He can be a little too forgiving with Jack.
  • Genius Ditz: He's shown to be an expert at building Bamboo Technology and sometimes even pitches clever ideas to Jack.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Although slow, there's no denying that Snuk is awfully sweet for a rat. Bit of a subversion as he's a Genius Ditz.
  • Nice Guy: Nicest character in the show.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: A sea rat, specifically.
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: He can be pretty observant and smart at times. Apparently, he's the only one who actually knows the answer to 2 plus 2 while both Jack and Flash guess wrong.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Jack's Red. His blue and white striped shirt seems to reflect this.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Being a chubby rat, he's more Ugly Cute than most examples but his personality just sells it.
  • Spanner in the Works: Sometimes, he's the one who unravels Jack's schemes.
  • Yes-Man: Acts like a servant to Jack.
  • You Dirty Rat!: Averted. Snuk is the nicest character in the show.
  • You Sexy Beast: He's a very rare example of a rat being this; he attracts a lot of women.
