"Samurai Jack is the titular character and main protagonist of the cartoon Samurai Jack. He is voiced by Phil LaMarr."

No Caption Provided

Introduction

----------------------------------

Samurai Jack will always be in most of our childhood memories as the defining example of badass. From beating up a near-omnipotent demon Aku, from effortlessly slicing up ugly aliens, we all know him from his epic nature, and of course, his legendary sword crafted by the gods themselves.

Powers and Abilities

Jack's Sword

- From Samurai Jack Wikia

"This sword was forged from the righteousness of the qi within thee. It possesses the power to destroy this evil force."

-Odin, Ra and Vishnu, Episode XXXVIII: The Birth of Evil, Part 2

Because Odin, Ra, and Vishnu crafted this weapon, it is designed to be able to vanquish (kill) anything evil with ease, as well as be able to cut through any material (given there is enough force behind the sword itself). It cannot be wielded by anyone that is evil, and won't hurt anyone innocent, or pure.

  • Samurai Lord (Jack's father) with the sword for the first time.
No Caption Provided
  • Samurai Jack's first time with the legendary sword.
No Caption Provided

Numerous Training Experiences

- Hand-to-hand combat expert

- Ancient weapons expert

- Peak human condition

- War tactics and strategies

- Multilingual

Our hero Jack has went through training ever since he was a small child. From training archery with Robin Hood, wrestling with Romans, mastering martial arts with Shaolin Monks, to learning foreign languages, Jack is the pinnacle of human perfection.

  • Jack training under numerous masters of their own respective field.

- 2-page flat, laid-out

No Caption Provided

- 2 page, split

So yeah, Samurai Jack is not a person to mess with.

Feats

  • Easily defeats numerous Aku Minions, as well as catching a whip mid-attack with ease.
No Caption Provided

  • After Samurai Jack's re-entry from time portal, he is immediately attacked.
No Caption Provided
  • Samurai Jack easily dispatches alien thugs (some with missile launchers for arms).
No Caption Provided
  • With a little bit of planning, Jack fights an entire army of Aku's Beetle Drones and wins.
  • Absolutely destroys a group of alien gladiators.
  • Despite having days of preparation, a group of the most dangerous, infamous bounty hunters from around the galaxy are killed swiftly by an ambushed Samurai Jack in under a couple seconds.
  • After a prolonged fight with a Shinobi Shadow Warrior, literally using lightness and darkness, Jack comes on top as the victor.
  • Jack facing off against Mondo-Bot, a robot that nuked an entire city and is taller than the tallest skyscraper.
  • Samurai Jack defeating 3 Archers who had previously defeated Aku's huge army. They wielded magic arrows that almost never missed their target.

- Proof that the 3 Archers alone took down a huge army (Skip to 1:43 - 2:30 and 2:49 - 4:00)

- Samurai Jack dodging an arrow effortlessly with his toes (Skip to 2:36)

- Samurai Jack deflecting and dodging hundreds of arrows (Skip to 4:00)

- Samurai Jack blindfolding himself to dodge arrows (Skip to 4:20)

Don't forget to mute the video (unless you like the music)

  • Jack defeating Ultra-Robots.

- Jack's first encounter with the Ultra-Robots (Skip to 2:24 and mute the video)

- Jack's second encounter with the Ultra-Robots (Skip to 3:38 and mute the video)

- Jack unleashing his/his sword's full potential (Skip to 5:00 and mute the video)

  • Overcomes a multi-ton grip from a giant summoned by Demongo, and stabs the giant on his hand. He later uses the rock to smash it against the giant's head (not shown in clip).
  • Jack instantly reacts to robot mobsters with future Tommy Guns. He also easily deflects their bullets (not shown in clip).
  • Samurai Jack defeating a popular, deadly gladiator without his sword.
  • Holds his own against The Guardian, a warrior who has lived for eons protecting the time portal.
  • Everyone's reaction to Jack's badassery :

Samurai Jack should never be live action a lot of what made the show so good could not be done live-action. Entire episodes were based around clever animation and playing with drawing styles.

But I kept hearing they were supposed to close the series with a live-action movie. I would take any thing that would provide closure at this point.

The creator of the show says that he is still working on making an animated film to wrap things up. It's going to take time though, but he is trying.

Now I'm actually thinking about that. I mean, The PPG crossed over with Dexter. And some of the other CN shows had characters randomly cameo. And the characters in Jack's future ran the gantlet from almost normal to downright silly. So maybe.....

I know, I know. Gendy Tartakovsky was working on Hotel Transylvania last time to see if the success would support his project. Its going to be hard to pull it off seeing how Mako (who voiced Aku) has long passed on :\

I remember that. I'll try and find a clip of it. Thanks!

There will always be voice actors who are similar to others...at least I hope so.

One of my all-time favorites, right alongside Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Enjoyed the first issue of the comic series from IDW.

Hope we'll get a few animated films soon.

@the_almighty: Well, he can be considered that if the only thing that can defeat him is only one weapon.

Right now, I am asking myself if any Superhero of DC or Marvel (not ascended entities) could defeat him if only that sword can hurt him.

Actually his jumping ability was the product of hard training, and thus could be reduced in effectiveness if said training was slacked off. So it may not count as an actual ability.
