Jacques is a major antagonist in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island.

He is a ferryman who secretly worked with Simone Lenoir and Lena Dupree to achieve immortality by draining the life force of the inhabitants of Moonscar Island as werecats.

He was voiced by Jim Cummings, who also voiced Dr. Robotnik in Sonic SatAM, Steele in Balto, Rasputin's singing voice in Anastasia, Scar in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, Fusilli in Courage the Cowardly Dog, Budzo in Zambezia and Hadrian in Minecraft: Story Mode.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Ferried many innocent people, mostly tourists, to Moonscar Island to kill them along with Simone Lenoir and Lena Dupree so they could steal their life force and remain immortal, transforming them into zombies.
  • Despite the comedic nature of Scooby-Doo, his actions are overall not played for laughs, and he is treated very seriously.
  • Though Lena cared for him, it's highly likely that such sentiment wasn't reciprocal, given that Simone was willing to abandon him in order to save Lena and herself from losing their immortality.
  • While Simone and Lena have an excuse for their actions as they both learned too late that their wish to get revenge on the pirates that killed their people had cursed them to become werecats against their will, Jacques lacks any excuse and just asked to be cursed so he could live forever, even if it meant ferrying innocent tourists to their deaths-also showing sadistic delight in doing as evident by how he taunted Scooby and Shaggy as he attempted to kill them.
  • While he may not be as heinous as the Evil Entity, he has FAR lower resources, as the Entity is a nigh-omnipotent being with god-like powers, and Jacques is a ferryman with immortality and superhuman abilities, and manages to do the worst he can with his limited resources.

Trivia

  • Jacques is, along with the Evil Entity, one of the two Scooby-Doo villains to be Pure Evil.
  • He is one of the most serious antagonists in the Scooby-Doo franchise, as well as one of the few to actually be a monster, as while most antagonists in the series are humans who disguise themselves as humans, Jacques is actually a monster who is disguised as a human.
