Jack Jones (ジャックジョーンズ Jakkujōnzu, also known as Kaitou Joker or Phantom Thief Joker (怪盗 ジョーカー Kaitō Jōkā), is the main protagonist of Kaitou Joker and one of the first apprentices of Kaitou Silver Heart.
Joker has icy blue-white hair, blue eyes and an indigo scar across his left eye.
Joker usually wears a dark blue hat, with a blue and white check theme. He wears a blue shirt with a yellow tie and a red suit with a golden J badge on his chest. He also has a purple cape, dark blue shoes, white gloves and his Joker Vision, the purple eye mask.
Joker is childish most of the time, but he can also be mature when the going gets serious. He loves to eat (his favorites being curry or hamburg steak), and loves Hachi's cooking to the point where he describes it as "best in Japan". He has a pretty high sense of loyalty towards his "profession" and refuses to call anyone who doesn't act like a phantom thief a phantom thief. While he really is the short-tempered type, he sometimes exaggerates it to lure his enemies into his traps and doesn't hesitate to throw his ego away and act desperate even though he knows he's already won. Not only does he like to fool his enemies with magic tricks but he also will use psychology whenever it's needed. He can be lazy sometimes and lets Hachi do the cleaning.
He also has some compassion towards helping others, as he could not accept criminals or rivals threatening innocent people for their plans. He even went as far as pairing up with others for the greater good.
Before Series EditFormerly known as Jack Jones, he lived with his mother and father in their manor. Life was happiest for him at this time with his family and everything he needed.
But his parents died shortly in a plane accident after he received the code to find the key he wanted so badly from his father. Not believing at first, he stayed in his family's mansion alone believing his parents would return once he found the key that his father hid. Night after night he scared thieves away who wanted to steal his father's treasure.
One night, he received an advance notice from Silver Heart saying he would come for the treasure and Jack thought that was just another pathetic thief. Silver Heart had to put up with a lot, including cages and ultimately gets hit on the head with a washbasin with the remote Jack had. He was tied to the safe by Jack and the doorbell rang, revealing Jack's parents. But those two were Professor Clover and his female assistant, dressed up as the Jones'. Jack only found out that they were fakes after they returned to the hall with the safe (Silver Heart was gone) and they acted strange, meaning they forgot about several important things (like his father makes the curry, not the mother). Even though they were small differences, that was enough for Jack to see through their disguise. After that, they turned into two figures with silly outfits and they introduced themselves, infuriating Jack.
Professor Clover tried to hurt, or rather kill Jack, who was clever enough to use the remote to activate a few traps and hide. But as he fled through the vent, a cat chased after him, this cat was Professor Clover's assistant, who turned from human form into a cat.
A little later, as the Professor grabbed Jack and lifted him into the air, Silver Heart reappeared. After a silly sentence ("I wanna kick that little boy's ass!" and Jack's "AND YOU CALL YOURSELF A GROWN UP?!") coming from him, they made a deal. Silver Heart found the key in a family picture of the Jones, after which he opened the safe and traded the treasure for Jack. There was a little fight (Clover and his assistant ended up pinned to the magnetic safe and the treasure broke, because Silver Heart turned the safe with wires into a huge electromagnet, and Clover and Doubt wearing durasteel armour ) after that the Professor and his assistant, Doubt, disappeared.
Jack later gave Silver Heart what was left of the treasure, and he flew away on his plane. He looked back and said "Take care, young man," and hoped he would be okay all alone in this mansion, but a voice from behind him said "It's Jack!". In the end it turned out that Jack sneaked on the plane and became Silver Heart's student in order to make "miracles" as well.
"Welcome, to the shining night!" were Silver Heart's last words after what they flew away, and the flashback in the episode ended. (Episode 5, for those who want to know.)
He and Diamond Queen decided to steal a treasure while Silver Heart was away. Their treasure was the Frozen Sabertooth Tiger Mummy, on a ship. There, they met King (Spade) and Dump (President D). Many mysterious men boarded the ship and started stealing many valuables, kidnapping Dump and Queen while they were at it, Jack and King narrowly escaped them. Jack and King blow up the leader of the men's helicopter and rescue Dump and Queen and ran. However, Dump struggled to keep up and gave up, grabbing Jack and Queen. King, feeling regretful, punched Dump unconscious, stuffed him in a rubbish bin and ran away with Jack and Queen. The trio were surrounded and had to climb up a ladder to reach the smokestack. The men shot the freezing gas canister that Jack was holding onto and the freezing gas floated up with the smokestack, making it hail and knocking out the men. After successfully stealing the treasure, King admired Jack for his miracle and decided to be a phantom thief as well, training under Silver Heart along with the duo.
One day, Silver Heart had to leave for something, leaving Jack, Queen and King alone at home. They decided to go fishing, but Jack and King immediately get bored and fight. Queen, however, caught something unusual, a dog. When he awoke, he eats Jack's corn and Queen insisted on keeping him. The dog talks, making the trio scream in shock. The dog thanked him for the corn and introduced himself as Number 101, and they decided to rename him Roko, as Number 101 as a name sounded sad. Suddenly, the heard something from the harbor and Roko runs away, the trio following close behind. As they reached the harbor, they were greeted by a huge monitor lizard that looks like a monster, and a purple cat (Doubt). Roko immediately recognize them as Number 99 and Number 12. Number 12 sees the quartet, and they immediately hide behind a crate. They quickly discuss a plan of how to stop Number 99. King and Queen distract 99 when Jack uses Straight Flash, but accidentally hits himself instead. While Jack rolls on the ground in pain, Roko tries to reason with 99, but he ended up getting knocked into the ocean with Jack.
As they wake up on a shore, Roko explains everything to Jack, and he swears that he would save Queen, almost forgetting about King too. Suddenly, a coconut falls on Jack's head, and they soak the coconut juice in their clothes and hair. They find 99 in a cave, preparing to eat King and Queen. Jack fires a card at 99's eye, making him step back in pain. Jack leads 99 away as Roko frees King and Queen. Roko tries to reason with 99 again, but it attacks them by spitting out digestive fluid. Roko uses his supersonic waves to loosen a rock in the ceiling, but 99 melts them with its digestive fluid. However, Roko and Jack survive with Jack calling it a miracle and he uses his card to dislodge the rock that Roko had hit, making it land on 99's tail, his weak point. 99 shrinks into a tiny monitor lizard as Jack and Roko immediately fall asleep on the spot. King grumpily carries Jack while Queen carries Roko home. Upon Silver Heart's return, Roko introduces himself and explains that he wants to be a phantom thief, making Silver Heart shocked at his ability to talk and he breaks his back, making Jack, Queen and King have to help him.
One day, Jack decided to prank Silver Heart by tying his hair to his bed while he was still asleep. Silver Heart then wakes up, immediately knowing that Jack was behind this. He chases him around his house saying that Jack would have half portions of dinner later. Later that same day, Jack sneaks out of Silver Heart's house, calling his escape plan a success, though he's starving. He then wanders aimlessly through a nearby forest, away from home. The next day, he was nearly hit by two children's horses and he climbs up a tree, instantly picking a fight with the boy. However, the branch Jack was on broke, and he was sent tumbling down with his playing cards. The girl then makes Jack float in mid-air, much to his surprise. The boy scolds her, but she seemed unaffected. They then let Jack ride their carriage to a nearby lake. The two introduce themselves as Cyan and Rose, and the trio chat for a while.
Later, on the way back to the village, Jack talks about his dream of being a phantom thief and about his partners in training, how horrible they can be and how he felt about them. Just as he was about to say more, he receives a phone call from King and Queen, panicking and informing him that Silver Heart had noticed his disappearance, and is coming to get him. Jack starts panicking too, but he looks at Cyan mischievously, hinting that he had a plan, and it wouldn't turn out well for Cyan.
Jack then uses a blue-white and a cyan colored hairsprays to color Cyan and his hair. They switched clothes as well. Rose then takes out a camera and snaps a photo of the three of them, embarrassing Cyan. Suddenly, Silver Heart appears, takes Cyan away and runs off, mistaking him for Jack. Despite Cyan's desperate attempts to say that he isn't Jack, Silver Heart turns a deaf ear to his words. Rose gets worried about him, but Jack insists on Cyan being fine and that he'll return in the evening.
They arrive at the village, only to see it in flames. The elders were captured by mysterious men, and they're objective was to find Rose and capture her. Jack and Rose run, only to end up surrounded on a bridge. One of the men grabbed Rose, but when Jack tried to help her, another man shot him, giving him a scar across his left eye. At that moment, Cyan arrives, also desperately attempting to save Rose. However, one of the men shoots him twice across his left eye and once across his body, and he falls into the lake. Rose, enraged at what they did to her brother, uses up all of her power to blow up the bridge, to Jack's surprise. After that incident, Jack loses consciousness and falls into the lake as well. He was later discovered by Silver Heart and taken back to his house for treatment of his injuries. When Jack wakes up, Silver Heart explains to him about what had happened, and about the disappearance of Cyan and Rose. Jack sheds tears at the news, believing that the siblings were dead.After his intense training with Silver Heart, he entered the Phantom Thief Academy, along with Queen, Spade, and Roko from which they all graduated before becoming professionals (vols 18 & 19).

Season 01 EditShadow Joker and Oniyama(who is Joker), Hachi, and "Joker" head off after him. After tricking Shadow, Joker reveals himself and so does Spade. Joker asks Shadow why he is pretending to be him and Shadow gives him a vague reply (He says "I see so you don't know. Then that is all the more reason I can't say why.") and then uses the temporary distraction from the police to escape. Joker then uses the video to prove his innocence and him and Spade are seen at the end of the episode fighting over who gets the crown. *It should be noted that Joker has it in a later episode, so it is assumed that Joker eventually won.*
Joker, Spade, and Queen while they were fishing. They name the dog "Roko" after its love for corn and are told by it about the lizard's plan. They decide to pursue the lizard in order to save the human race.They then decided after the battle to keep Roko.
Season 02 EditThe episode starts with Joker and Hachi driving through New York City. Joker then stops at a police station,walks in, and tells a police officer to arrest him. They are then taken into custody and sent to Demons Heaven Penitentiary. When they arrive, they are greeted by the warden of the prison, Jason. Jason explains that the Demons Heaven is a special prison to keep people like Joker from escaping with its various traps and high security. They are then harshly scrubbed and kicked into cells. While eating in the cafeteria, Hachi asks Joker why he intentionally let himself be arrested. Joker was about to explain when a prisoner suddenly threw his drink into Joker's face. The prisoner introduces himself as Frank and tells Joker that he was sitting in his spot. Joker then tosses his drink into Frank's face causing Frank to grab Joker by the shirt and threaten him. Before a fight could break out, a guard notices their fight and they break them up. As they are being subdued, Jason walks up asking about all the noise. The guard informs him and Jason uses this moment to ask Joker the meaning behind the advance notice he had received earlier. Joker then confidently tells him that he is going to steal the Moon Ring just as the advanced notice had stated. Jason then calls him a burglar making Joker correct him, which causes Jason to get agitated and beat Joker on the head. Joker was then thrown into the "special" cell. This however, was all according to Joker's plan as he wanted to search the room for the Moon Ring. As he inspects the room, he notices a small crack in the wall. He then turns a piece of image gum, that he had hidden in one of his back teeth, into a knife and begins prying through the wall. To his disappointment however, the Moon Ring was not there. Before he could do anything else, a guard showed up demanding to know what he was doing. The guard then reveals himself as Spade and he tells Joker that he will be getting the treasure first. The episode then cuts to Joker and Hachi running the grounds. As they are running, Frank approaches them and calls Joker over to talk. Thinking that it was to finish their fight, he tells Hachi to keep running the grounds and he braces himself for a fight. Much to Joker's surprise, Frank actually wanted to supply Joker with information on the prisoner that had originally stolen the Moon Ring. After chatting with Frank, Joker finds Hachi over at the water faucets getting a drink. Joker notices thatthe faucet Hachi was using had a different way of producing water compared to the others. He then pushes a confused Hachi out of the way, and removed the faucet head. He then shook it and then discovered the Moon Ring. When they are back at their cells, Joker uses a piece of bread that he saved from his lunch to bring a seagull with a device tied around it's leg to his window(Spade is also shown earlier to be discovered by Jason and arrested.). He then pushes the button on the device in order to pull up a series of can-shaped containers. The containers have all of Joker's and Hachi's equipment stored inside of them. Joker then breaks out himself and Hachi. He then turned to Spade and told him it was his victory. Spade then pulls out the key to his cell and lets himself out, telling Joker it was easy to get his key since he was a guard. They all begin rushing towards the exit. Spade led them to an exit but Hachi got spooked by a large rat and his scream got them noticed. Joker then cuts the power and Spade puts the crowd of guards to sleep. Unable to see, they begin to feel along the walls until Joker hit something else. That "something else" turned out to be Jason, who demands that Joker hands over the Moon Ring. They run away and disguise themselves with image gum in order to hide from his sight. However, Jason had a mask that can see heat signatures and he could find them easily. They then run into the shower room and, thinking fast, Joker tells Spade and Hachi to turn on all the showers. Jason walks in and remarks that they are clever on using the heat from the shower to hide themselves. He then calls up to his headquarters demanding that they turn off the water. The showers turn off revealing them. He then tells them to hand over the Moon Ring but they remain silent. Angered, Jason hits them with his electric baton and he smugly tells them that they were fools. Joker then speaks making Jason hit them again and again. They tell him to take of his mask and he sees that the people he was attacking were actually towels that were put together to match their body shape. Jason then frustratingly turns around to attack the real things but Joker swiftly uses straight flash while Spade uses Ice shot to cause Jason to trip making the electric baton electrify him instead. They all three escape by boat and DJ Peacock announces that Joker had successfully escaped from the prison(much to Oniyama's joy). DJ also mentions that videos showing Jason's cruel treatment of the prisoners were discovered and he was arrested. Spade then asks Joker what they should do now. Joker tells him that they should relax and cruise for awhile. The episode ends with Joker and Hachi fishing with Spade and Dark Eye.
Joker and Hachi are called to Silver Heart's house after he lost contact with Queen while she was attempting to steal the "Rainbow Peacock Egg", a egg that is said to be laid once every hundred years. Silver Heart tries repeatedly, in vain, to go out and rescue Queen but his trick back was acting up, making him unable to move. Seeing Silver Heart's concern over the matter, Hachi volunteers Joker and himself to go save her in his place. Joker, however, replied that he was busy and began reading his own manga while eating chips.
Silver Heart then opened a window, took out a mega phone, and began loudly declaring he will reveal all the "things" Joker has done. In order to keep Silver Heart silent, Joker agrees to go save Queen and they head off to Kaneari's restaurant. As usual, Kaneari had high security and a variety of traps laid out in order to prevent the duo from infiltrating the restaurant. Joker decides to "change things up" and disguises himself as a fish while Hachi disguises himself as a watermelon. Joker and Hachi then enter a room only to discover that Queen and Roko had become incredibly fat and round. While they were reacting to Queen and Roko's weight gain, the head chef, Millefeuille, entered the room. Joker asks her if she was behind this and she admits to it while also throwing hollow pasta at them, making them get stuck against the wall. Before she could dice them up, another chef comes and tells her that it is time to cook the egg. Realizing that the egg was about to get eaten, Joker and Hachi easily free themselves from the pasta and head to Millefeuille's kitchen. Using Kaneari's impatience as a distraction, Joker jumps from his hiding place and grabs the egg. Realizing that she knew he was there the whole time, Joker tossed the egg to Hachi and began to distract the other chiefs in the kitchen, while telling Hachi to go on ahead. Millefeuille quickly begins to pour water and flour together and uses her "Flour Whip" to make Hachi slip and fall. She then throws slices of lemon into Joker's eyes while he was temporarily distracted by the egg's safety. Blinded, Joker stumbles around the kitchen and grabs onto a hot pan. He then trips and falls on the "Flour Whip" and is unable to move. Thinking quickly, Hachi grabs Joker and brings him into the freezer while also blocking the door. Joker cools
down his hands and then thinks of a way to avoid being affected by Millefeuille's cooking. They then come out of the freezer and she shoves a cooked slab of meat into Joker's mouth. Joker, however, remained unchanged by her cooking due to him putting ice in his mouth, changing how his tongue perceives taste by cooling it. Millefeuille realizes what he did and instead fed him warm cream stew, which returned his cooled tongue to normal. Tasting the full extent of her cooking, Joker becomes entranced by it and begins eating the large pot of cream stew she made. Worried that Joker will end up like Queen, Hachi grabs a bunch of condiments and begins quickly putting it into the stew. Tasting all those gross mixtures, Joker yells out a loud "Gross!" and returns to his senses. Angered by Hachi making it so her food goes to waste, Millefeuille uses her "Al Dente Rope" to grab Hachi and hold him over boiling oil. Joker quickly pushes Hachi out of the way and gets boiled instead. Thinking that Joker was dead, Millefeuille presents his baked body to the restaurant attendees and begins preparing to cook the egg. Suddenly Joker's baked body latches on to her while moaning "Egg....", which causes her to drop the egg. Despite Kaneari's effort, the egg still hits the ground and cracks, revealing that the egg is empty. A spotlight lights up, showing Joker with the egg cooked. Silver Heart
then cuts in to explain that since Joker was covered in flour and then went into the freezer, cooling himself to the core, his body remained unaffected from the oil's heat and only the flour was cooked. It is then explained by Joker that during the boiling process, he used the hollow pasta that Millefeuille had used on him earlier and stabbed it into the egg shell. Bringing the egg out through it and cooking it in the oil along with himself. After the explanations, Joker prepares to eat the egg only to have Kaneari steal it from him. Before Kaneari could eat it however, a hungry Queen cuts in with her sword and goes for the egg. Joker re-obtains the egg and then rides on top of a bouncing Queen to escape. Joker, Hachi, and Silver Heart all enjoy the "Rainbow Peacock Egg" while Queen and Roko are stuck dieting.
Joker and Hachi are after the "Birdman Statue of Osiris", which is owned by the Desert Bandit Gang. The episode starts with Joker easily swiping the treasure out from under their noses and dashing off, using Road Joker, with the treasure. The Bandits give chase and stubbornly follow them through the desert. While trying
to lose them, Hachi notices a figure standing on one of the pyramids. The person on the pyramid then leaps at Joker in an attempt to obtain the statue. He, instead, misses his jump and gets ran over by the angry bandits chasing after Joker. The episode then cuts to Joker and Hachi resting at a town restaurant after finally managing to lose the bandit gang. Their celebration was cut short however, when the person from before appears out from under their table with his triangle head glowing. He introduces himself as Lucky Pyramid and declares that he will be taking the treasure, as he has been after it for quite some time. Joker, of course, refuses and Lucky Pyramid then decides to use his powers. Joker and Hachi brace themselves but come to find that nothing is happening other then Lucky Pyramid scrunching up his face and making noise. Joker gets impatient and throws one of his cards at him. The card hits it's mark right at the center of Lucky Pyramid's forehead causing him to fall backwards, making a customer's curry fly up in the air. The curry then ricochets off of a chandelier and lands on a unsuspecting waiter. The waiter then falls back into a statue causing it to fall towards Joker. Joker then jumps to dodge it, only to slam into a wall and drop the treasure. The treasure then falls right into Lucky Pyramid's hands. Joker and Hachi then asks what is going on due to everything going to well for it to be a coincidence. Lucky Pyramid explains that his power is unbelievably good luck that he obtains from his mask after receiving misfortune (i.e. getting ran over by bandits). Lucky Pyramid then spots a beautiful woman walking down the street and immediately runs to her and confesses his love. The girl screams, calls him a "block monster", and runs away.However due to her
rejecting him, he gains misfortune which allows him to gain more luck. Unfortunately for Joker (who just caught up to him), Lucky Pyramid uses his luck to cause Joker to fall into an open sewer entrance. Hachi then tells Joker that it is impossible to get the treasure back from him but that just makes Joker all the more determined to do it. Using the tracking device he planted on the Birdman Statue, Joker easily locates Lucky Pyramid's hideout and infiltrates it. It doesn't take long before him and Hachi find the treasure room where the statue was displayed. Hachi excitedly runs for it, only to be stopped by Joker. Joker then points out all the traps in the room saying that Luck Pyramid is "a cautious one". Lucky Pyramid then suddenly came up behind Joker stating that they are in his home base and Joker knows as well as he does that he has something to give him an advantage. Joker and Hachi once again brace themselves, only to watch Lucky Pyramid willingly walk into his own traps. This was to his own advantage however, since it provided him with misfortune allowing him to store up some luck. Joker then pulls off the bag that he brought with him and begins giving some of his treasure to Lucky Pyramid. This is uses all of Lucky Pyramid's stored up luck. The two then get into a "battle" with Joker throwing treasure and Lucky Pyramid injuring himself. A dumb founded Hachi suddenly realizes that all the traps were meant to be triggered by Lucky Pyramid, so he just walks up and grabs the statue with no problem. He then tells Joker that they should quit all this nonsense and go home. Joker and Hachi then throw the treasure back and forth between each other while Lucky Pyramid is in between them trying to get it back in vain. This doesn't last however, as the bandits use a rocket launcher to blow a giant hole in the wall and they infiltrate Lucky Pyramid's house. The trio are instantly asked where the treasure is but Joker responds with that it probably flew off due to the explosion or that Lucky Pyramid had it hidden somewhere. The trio are then taken out and tied to poles in order to get the location of the statue. Lucky Pyramid, at this point, is ready to give it up but Joker refuses to. He happily states that he is going to use "Pyramid Power". Lucky Pyramid asks if he can use it and Joker responds with a quick no. He then states that Lucky Pyramid will bring the luck and he is going to invite misfortune. Lucky Pyramid gets a bad feeling as Joker lets out an evil chuckle and clicks a detonator. Explosions then start to erupt from Lucky Pyramid's house. Joker explains that the "treasures" that he had given Lucky were actually bombs and they quickly begin to obliterate everything in Lucky's house. This causes Lucky's mask to fully charge, causing maximum luck. This leads to the "Butterfly Effect". The explosions scared a camel that nearly runs over a lady on the phone. The guy on the phone with her stands up from his chair in disbelief causing his chair to role into the window, scaring the window cleaner. The window cleaner drops his cleaning cloth in surprise which lands in Roko's face. Roko then jumps in surprise and lands on Queen's face, causing her to accidentally throw her sword and cut a power line, causing the city to lose power. Kaneari is riding in his limo when the power outage caused the lights to stop working making the limo driver slam the breaks. This causes Kaneari to accidentally push Kintaro's nose making his house explode. His paintings go flying onto the window of Oniyma's,Momo's, and Ginko's police car (the devil chaser), causing Ginko (the driver) to freak out and hit the button that activates her power winch. This hits the side of Spade's motorcycle (the police were chasing them), causing him to fall off the road. Spade quickly uses his "Ice Shot" to make an ice road around some buildings. This ends up created and beautiful scenery making a civilian take a photo. The photo is then viewed by a worker at NASA, who got distracted by the picture, causing him to carelessly throw is banana peel, making it miss the trash can. A pizza delivery guy then slips on said peel causing the pizza to go flying into the face of another worker who then panics and accidentally pushes a switch that drops one of their satellites out of orbit over the exact spot where Joker and the others are being held. The satellite lands causing a massive explosion but the trio remained unscathed due to Lucky Pyramid's luck. Joker then compliments Lucky Pyramid's power and Lucky praises Joker for his wit. As they are shaking hands, Lucky's mask falls off to reveal a handsome man underneath it. At the same time, the bandit leader is revealed to be a beautiful woman. Lucky Pyramid hurriedly puts on his mask again and confesses his love to her. She immediately rejects him calling him "Egypt's mascot" and the gang then withdraws. Joker and Hachi then ask Lucky why he even wears the mask since it is pretty obvious that he would be happier without it. It then cuts to Joker and Hachi driving once again through the desert. They mention that Lucky's house was going to be fine due to the carpenter happening to be free that day. Hachi then says that it is too bad that
the treasure got blown up only to be surprised when Joker suddenly pulls it out.He removed the bandit's tracking device and then hid the treasure. All of the sudden a large group of camels came out of nowhere causing Joker to slam on the breaks making the treasure fly right into the hands of Lucky Pyramid. He then states he is going to give it to the bandit leader in hopes of gaining her affection. Joker then knocks off his mask and uses his shyness to steal the treasure back. He then knocks the mask out of his reach and it lands on Hachi's head. The episode ends with Lucky Pyramid chasing Joker and Hachi for his mask and the treasure.
The episode starts with Joker and Spade fighting in Spade's airship. Queen tried to stop them, but fails. Hachi explores Spade's airship and finds a book by Spadon King, instantly asking Dark Eye if Spade likes books by Spadon King as well. He immediately hesitates and tells him that maybe he likes them. Dark Eye freezes when
Hachi asks him again, but this time where the toilet is. After flushing, Hachi sees a door slightly ajar, and enters that room, to find a huge collection of Spadon King books. Hachi explores this room and finds a bunch of papers piled up neatly. He reads the story written on the paper, remarking that perhaps that it was a new novel he had never heard about. The episode then flashbacks to Joker, King and Queen's childhood, showing how Jack and Queen met King and some of his history. After the flashback,Hachi finds Joker and Spade fighting, saying some of the exact same lines from the story ( " I didn't trick you, I just didn't tell you! " ). Hachi realizes that Spadon King is actually Spade's pen name, and he is an author.
The episode starts with Joker, Queen, Roko, and Spade with their assistants celebrating Silver Heart's 50th Phantom Thief Anniversary. They all eat together and enjoy their time celebrating. Joker, Queen and Spade then go outside to the balcony as they express how much they enjoyed their meal. Silver Heart appears and hugs the three of them together, snuggling them as if they were family and Spade comments that he drank too much. However, time stops and the trio are frozen in place, together with Hachi, Roko Dark Eye and the Queen of Pandora. Silver Heart then wonders if time had stopped, and Professor Clover appears, with Rose. Professor Clover and Silver Heart battle, however, Professor Clover aims his gun at the frozen trio, wanting to get revenge on Silver Heart. Just as the Professor pulls the trigger, Silver Heart defends his apprentices, taking the hit instead. Silver Heart now weakened, the Professor takes advantage of his state and shoots him. As Rose nearly collapses out of exhaustion, the Professor bids the quartet farewell and leaves. Joker, Queen and Spade immediately run to their master's aid, just as he loses consciousness, he tells them to stop the Professor. Spade asks Joker if he knew Rose, and Joker touches his scar, having a flashback about what happened with Rose and Cyan. As the
flashback ends, Joker is seen standing next to a bed ridden Silver Heart. He takes his cards and walks away to find Shadow Joker. Meanwhile, Shadow has tracked down Professor Clover's next target, "Nornir's Hourglass", and begins waiting for Clover to show up. Joker appears and demands that Shadow reveals Clover's location. Shadow responds with "How should I know?" causing Joker to angrily demand an answer. They then start fighting only for Joker to realize Shadow was already badly injured. Joker asks if it was the Professor's doing and Shadow reveals that he is a traitor now while also stating that he will get Rose back. Suddenly they are frozen in place and Clover along with a controlled Rose appears. Clover then brutally attacks them both while they are in their frozen state. Before he could finish them, Rose recognizes both of them and releases them from being frozen. Joker quickly uses this opportunity to use "Straight Flash" and Clover has Rose attack the Image Gum dummies of himself and Shadow. Clover and Rose escape, while Viridian and Oniyama discover that the two
unconscious Jokers were fakes. Meanwhile, the real Joker and Shadow are badly injured but had manged to escape to an alley. Shadow realizes that Rose had recognized him but Joker pointed out that if they hadn't made that switch in time, she would've killed them both. Joker then looks over to Shadow and asks: "What the heck happened to you two?". Before Shadow could respond, his wounds finally took their toll on him and he loses consciousness. The episode ends with Joker worriedly shouting for him to wake up.
Season 03 Edit
After his usual castaway of another treasure and escaping the police, he was almost shot by a member of the Devil Fang, Spider Ace. He decides to search for the Crystal Skull Key as he has one of the jewels needed to indicate the treasure location. He along with Hachi sneaks into the museum where the key was located, only to meet a mysterious boy Akai Tsubasa who was also searching for the treasure. He eventually meets up with Queen and Spade who also have the jewels needed to activate the key. All of them bypass the traps designed by Devil Fang and obtained the key. They inserted the jewels, which reveals a map to the treasure, but got stolen by Akai, who reveals that the treasure is a God-beast and his true form as Phoenix.
Fortunately thanks to his strong memory, he found the location of the treasure, only for Phoenix to get in the way again. Joker, Spade and Queen manages to bypass the trails and unlocks the chest to the God-beast, only to reveal a cute creature Hosshii as a treasure. He reluctantly took in Hosshii (who secretly snuck aboard), who ate the Crystal Skull Key and produce a Guidance Stone.
Search of the Ancient Treasure and Hunted by Devil Fang
Even though he was successful in obtaining Hosshii, he was haunted by Devil Fang, with his bounty being set as 1.1 billion. He first did not get killed by Candy during the Bride Grand Prix due to dumb luck. The next treasure he was searching, the Star of Thor, which unknowingly related to the Ancient Treasure was in the deep sea. He worked together with Captain Blue to stop Akai from his plans, but still lost the stone.
Season 04 Editwith Hachi and Phoenix right behind him. While running, Oniyama shows up once again with another army of robots. During the chase Joker throws cards that land along the walls, floor and ceiling. He then hits the robots with Oniyama and escapes from them after throwing another card in the floor near them.They then see Dr.Neo ahead of them with a group of robots around him. They turn into another corridor and Joker throws another card into the ceiling. Suddenly a laser cage surrounds them, trapping them. Dr. Neo then walks up demanding Hosshii and Phoenix but Joker refuses to give him Hosshii stating that returning treasures he has stolen is against his policy. Upset by Joker's answer, Dr. Neo makes the laser cage begin to move towards them. Joker then asks Phoenix to cooperate with him, so they can escape. Joker has Phoenix aim his bow towards a card on the ceiling and tells him to fire. Thinking that Joker was trying to hit him but missed, Dr. Neo confidently tellsthem to turn to ash. His celebration was cut short when the power suddenly went out. It is explained that Joker placed all the cards at perfect angels so Phoenix's arrow would bounce off of them and hit the generator right on target. So in short, he calculated the angles of reflection the arrow would have to bounce off of in order to hit the generator. With that, they successfully escape and almost immediately Joker and Phoenix start fighting over the treasure. Phoenix ends up kicking it in the air so that Hosshii can eat it. Joker tries in vain to have Hosshii spit it out but he ends up swallowing it anyway. Hosshii then lays a golden egg that shows a image of Phoenix's planet. Phoenix then tells Joker that the Guidance Stones are angle sensitive and realigns them so they light up once more. He then flew off in the direction of the light with Joker yelling that he will obtain the ancient treasure first.
+ Clash!!!, The Arrow of Terror Aimed at Joker. The Mystery of the Reverse Perspective Steam Trick! The rest is too long to fit!!
The episode starts off with the comet picking up in speed, and the world's leaders are discussing building missiles to destroy it in order to prevent it from hitting the Earth. Meanwhile, Joker, Spade, Queen and Hachi
are trying to figure out where Phoenix had been taken to. Joker realizes that the Ancient Treasure is actually the comet due to the "Guidance Stones" pointing into space. DJ Peacock and the Underworld Network News are covering the situation around the comet, and Hosshi starts reacting to the closeup image of the comet. With his suspicions confirmed, Joker reveals that the Ancient Treasure is actually the comet. Joker then announces that he would be getting Phoenix back, since their game is still on, relieving Hachi and Hosshi. Suddenly, Silver Heart contacts them, telling the quartet to come over to his house immediately, they thought that is was because he needed help with his trick back, so they happily tell him that they're busy. Silver Heart tells them that it was important, so they quickly go to his house for the news.
Silver Heart happily (oddly) says that he is quitting the Phantom Thief business for a while, making Joker, Queen and Hachi panic, promising him to give him a massage as they think it's because of his back. Spade, however, gets a fever and faints, making Joker say quite a funny sentence ( " Oh, Spade died.." ). Silver Heart angrily tells them to stop and explains that it was it was because that he was going back to being a spy so he could go on a "shining date" with his former partner, Agent Purple. They crushed a number of criminal organizations together back in Silver Heart's spy days. Silver Heart's crush on Agent Purple is undeniable as he gets excited about the shining date, making the quartet speechless. Suddenly, a toy doll of Agent Purple appears and gives Silver Heart information about the "shining date". She reveals that a "shining date" is actually a codeword for a mission and tells Silver Heart that the organization Jackal has risen up once again. Hearing that information, Joker immediately gets involved and the Agent Purple doll immediately self-destructs. Silver Heart then shows his apprentices and Hachi a bunch of (dangerous) spy tools that he had kept for a long time as memories. Queen puts on a pair of sunglasses which shoots lasers, hitting Joker by accident. Hachi tries on a pair of flying jet shoes, but they explode after ten seconds. They all angrily ask on why he keeps all those dangerous things around. Silver Heart, embarrassed, explains that they are all important memories to him. They then get ready to infiltrate Jackal's base. Queen and Silver Heart fly there in Silver Heart's plane, while Joker,Spade, and Hachi fly with Sky Joker. In response to their appearance, Jackal sends out several planes to intercept them. They fire missiles at Silver Heart's plane, but Silver Heart expertly dodges all of them. However, when Silver Heart tried to jam the signal on one of the planes, the gun failed and they were right in the line of fire of another missile. However, something intersects the missile and destroys it. Silver Heart finds out that Agent Purple was the one who destroyed the missile, and she destroys the other planes with her own missiles. Dr. Neo overlooks, enraged as he tries to find a way
to extract Phoenix's heart. The Sky Joker and Silver Heart's plane lands, as well as Purple. They meet her for the first time to find out that she had become a small old lady, much to Silver Heart's disappointment. Purple, however, claims that she is still good looking woman. Joker, Hachi, Queen and Spade introduce themselves and Purple suddenly fires a laser at a Jackal robot, explaining that the island is crawling with them.
The six infiltrate the Jakal base but immediately get surrounded. Dr. Neo explains his plans and Joker throws his shoe at him, telling him to quit the monologue, his wig falls off and he shrinks back to his old man state. Hachi then uses his "pepper shurikans" to reveal that all of the Jakal soldiers are old, as well. The soldiers throw their teeth at them, but they dodge them easily. Joker, Queen, Spade and Hachi chase Dr. Neo as
Purple and Silver Heart fend off the Jakal soldiers together. The Jakal robots were catching up to them, so Queen and Spade fend them off, telling Joker, Hachi and Hoshii to go ahead and rescue Phoenix, who was slowly being drowned by Dr. Neo in order to make it easier to extract his heart. Hosshi leads Joker and Hachi to Phoenix, who was trapped in a case that was slowly filling up with water. Joker uses Emblem Fire to destroy the case, and then he uses Straight Flash to escape. Dr. Neo, enraged, calls Sniper Genma to go after Phoenix and kill the Phantom Thieves.
Joker, Hachi, Phoenix and Hoshii escape to the bottom of a cliff with a bunch of boulders and rocks. Phoenix is relieved to see Joker, but he is severely weak and he sits behind a boulder to rest for a moment, lamenting that he wants to go home. Hosshi sits with Phoenix as he tells them the story of how his ship malfunctioned and how they landed on earth, and that the comet is actually his ship. Joker then helps Phoenix up and tells
Phoenix that he isn't giving up and Phoenix shouldn't either. Meanwhile, Genma has caught up to them and was aiming to shoot through the heart of an unsuspecting Joker. Joker notices it just in time, and jumps out of the way behind a boulder. Genma then shoots down at the boulder, and Joker tells Hachi to run with Phoenix while he distracts Genma. Hachi hesitates but Joker reassures him that he could handle it. Joker then stands in front of the boulder, puts on the sunglasses that shoots lasers and began rapidly firing them at Genma. Genma deftly dodges all of them and is unable to stay still to aim his sniper rifle. Hachi then leads Phoenix into area full of trees and watches Joker keep Gunma occupied. However the sunglasses run out of battery and Genma then shoots Joker's right leg, left leg and right arm before aiming for his heart. Hachi quickly creates a smokescreen and sets up many image gum copies of Joker to distract Gunma. Hachi brings Joker behind a boulder while Genma shoots down all the image gum Jokers. Joker then worriedly yells at Hachi, telling him that it dangerous and asking him why he came. Hachi begins crying, saying that he did not want Joker to die, making Joker surprised. Genma, finished shooting down all the fakes, moves on to find Joker and Hachi. They giggle about the trick that Hachi used and they talk about the future for a short moment. Queen and Spade arrive, but they notice that Genma is aiming at straight at Joker from some bushes. Spade yells for Joker to look out, but Genma quickly pulls the trigger. Hachi immediately jumps up, protecting Joker from the bullet and gets himself shot in the heart instead. Joker was frozen with shock while Spade uses Ice Shot to freeze Genma to prevent him from firing another shot. Joker then holds Hachi in his arms and tells
him that he can't die. Despite the amount of pain he was in, Hachi smiles and tells Joker that he wasn't going to die because Joker couldn't clean, do the laundry, or do anything without him. He then goes on to tell Joker that he looks up to Joker and wants to be a great phantom thief like him. Joker then tells Hachi to stop speaking since it is making the injury worse. Hachi still continues to however and asks Joker if they will continue having adventures together. Joker starts telling him about all of the adventures they will have as Hachi losses conscious. Joker continues talking to him, stating that they are going to get the ancient treasure together and then they will throw a curry party. At this point Joker, couldn't hold himself back any more and says that he really doesn't need the curry or the treasure. Tears begin to stream down his face as he shakily tells Hachi that all he needs is for him to be alive. He then yells out loudly into the silent night for Hachi to open his eyes.
Image Gum EditImage gum is a pink, ordinary looking gum, that was created by Silver Heart and is one of Joker's tools-of-the-trade. It has the overall ability to transform him and anything else by matching the shape, rigidity, for five minutes, and the appearance of anything the user has seen the object or person at least once. It should be noted that in the manga, Joker uses it in a similar way to Balloon Gum.
Balloon Gum EditBalloon Gum is an anime exclusive tool that looks identical to image gum other than its green color. It was also another tool-of-the-trade created by Silver Heart. Balloon Gum is used to either float in the air for escaping and pursuing foes like Phoenix.
- Speed Balloon Gum is an addition to balloon gum that was introduced in season four. It seems to work similarly to regular balloon gum, only it's faster.
Playing Cards EditJoker's cards are another of Silver Heart's tools-of-the-trade. They are his primary arsenal of choice in battle and along with various uses from Joker's cunningness. They are fire proof , and extremely durable, due to being able to cut through metal and a number of other things. Joker uses his cards in a number of ways depending on the situation at hand:
- He holds one card in each hand in close-combat fights, however this is rare since Joker usually prefers to use tricks and brains against his opponents.
- He uses his cards to create smoke screens for escapes and occasionally tricks such as tricking Buffalo Kid off the side of a building (Chapter 13).
- He uses his cards as bombs, which he calls "Bomb Cards". They are Joker cards but instead the joker's hat,eyes,and the J of "joker" is red.These bombs can blow up on impact or can be timer bombs.
- He can also use cards to take pictures in order to fool security cameras. They are called Image Cards.
- Straight Flash: Joker's primary signature move when he makes a straight flush hand which creates a great flash to temporarily blind foes.
- Royal Straight Flash: An upgraded alternative of the above while also pulling off other moves like Emblem Fire or Flying Explosion. Introduced in Season 4.
- Emblem Fire: is a technique where fire wraps around on of Joker's cards. Whether the card automatically does it or Joker does is unknown. Along with Royal Straight Flash, he can use Emblem Fire to pull off Flying Explosion.
- Flying Explosion: was newly introduced in season 4 when Joker combined Royal Straight Flash and Emblem Fire. A ring of fire circles around Joker as he floats in the air. Then a flurry of flaming cards rain down scorching and denting several robots.
- Shooting Star is a technique where magic wraps around a card that Joker throws. Again it is unknown whether the card emits it or Joker applies it to the card. This ability is rarely used.
- Final Shooting Star: A stronger version to the above.
- Shuffle Shoot is a technique where Joker shoots a flurry of cards at an opponent.
Wristwatch EditJoker's wristwatch has a variety of functions:
- Used to summon Sky Joker and Road Joker. He usually calls their respective name into his watch and the vehicle of choice appears.
- He uses it for attaching thread on objects.
- Has a flashlight function.
- He also uses it as a timer and of course, as a normal watch as well.
- It also has a magnet function
- It also can be used as a communicator
Motorcycle EditJoker uses a motorcycle in the manga when heading to the Moonlight Castle for the "Kings Sword". It appears in the manga only.
Joker Vision EditJoker's high-spec goggles with x-ray vision, heat-seeking, night vision and other scanning capabilities.
J Pin EditAn emergency pin to create a smoke screen as means for quick escape. In the manga, he also hides a piece of image gum in his J as a last resort.
Joker is incredibly intelligent he can solve complex problems, think of useful tactics to get out of pinches, is a user of psychology, and he is even an inventor though most of the time they don't work.
Super Human Endurance and Agility EditJoker is extremely quick on his feet and with his hands. He can swiftly switch things like Spade's tranquilizer gun and trade it with a fake without Spade even realizing it. Joker can also jump impossibly high and climb up cliffs without tiring. This may have been because of Silver Heart's training. Joker has also been shown to handle receiving various wounds and still be able to stand and move, such as Joker being cut with dry ice multiple times and was able to walk it off.
Eidetic/Photographic Memory Edit
Joker can remember anything just by looking at it once. He memorized a map after seeing it for a brief moment, and was able to remember the exact locations of his cards while running from an army of robots down a series of long and similar hallways. This also helps him create his image gum disguises.
Joker may have the ability to control fire. His moves "Emblem Fire" and "Flying Explosion" show that he may have at least some control over fire, however this is not confirmed.
Survival Skills Edit
Joker has shown that he has knowledge in surviving in the wilderness. When lost in the dessert, Joker was able to give Hachi water by transferring his urine into distilled water. He is even shown to able to handle medical care when he saved Silver Heart after he was attacked by Queen or, in the manga, Joker saved Silver Heart after he was shot multiple times protecting Queen from police gunfire.
Joker is able to perform magic real or otherwise. He can do things from hiding things in his hat to cleverly using a screen to make it look like he vanished into a movie. His moves like "Shooting Star" and "Emblem Fire" may be him performing actual magic but this is unconfirmed.
Sword Skills EditJoker is seen to have some amount of swordsmanship, he is able to use Queen's sword when he saved her from the pharaoh and he also was seen using Captain Blue's sword to fight Phoenix and the White Devil.
Piloting Skills Edit
