Scaramouche the Merciless is an android who claims to be Aku's top assassin.
His appearance is similar to X9, but with blue eyes instead of red, a longer neck and a functional mouth with teeth. He wears a black straw hat, yellow scarf, red boots, and a long purple coat with red interior and a black belt.
Unlike other robots sent to kill Jack, Scaramouche is very boastful and talkative. Upon noticing that Jack was without his sword, he proceeded to mock him for it, to the point of calling Aku to boast that Jack had lost the weapon. He has a tendency to call anyone he meets as babe or baby, even his boss Aku. He is also extremely arrogant since he self-proclaims himself as Aku's favorite assassin while his power is vastly inferior to many of Jack's old foes like Demongo or even DJ Stylbator.
His arrogance is also his downfall since he lets his guard down long enough for Jack to use his knife, which was imbued by Scaramounche's own magnetic force from his own knife, against him and cripple his neck (the source of his ability) as well as heavily injure him.
In the face of death, he praises Jack's fighting skill, likely a weak attempt to talk his way out of his fate, before Jack chops him in half with his own sword.
Powers and Abilities
- Enhanced Speed and Agility: Scaramouche is remarkably agile. He was able to leap tall structures in a single bound, quickly dodge Jack's attacks, and massacred an entire village in only a day.
- Musical Manipulation: Using a "magic" flute, Scaramouche can levitate objects and create golems to fight opponents. When the flute is destroyed, he can continue to levitate objects by scatting, indicating this power comes from his voice but the flute amplifies his ability since he can only control his sword through his voice.
- Swordsmanship: Scaramouche is a master sword fighter, easily holding his own against even the experienced Jack, and carries multiple blades on his person, including a heavy scimitar and a special "tuning sword" that destroys objects on contact.
