The Cranky Wizard first appeared in Episode XXVII: Chicken Jack, in which he angrily transformed Jack into a chicken when the latter had accidentally bumped into him. He was voiced by Billy West.

Character Outline

The Wizard bears a resemblance to the stereotypical wizard, with long white beard, cloak, and pointed hat. He appears to care for his black nails, which become jagged and broken when he uses his transformation abilities.


Little is known about the Wizard other than his dislike of manicures and people who bump into him, though he was also shown to be largely indifferent to whether the offender apologized to him or chastised him; he was angry either way. He also seems to have a nasty reputation, as everyone fearfully gave him a wide berth when he walked through the city. This implies that he either lives in the city or regularly goes through it.

Some time after using his powers on Jack, the Wizard used his powers on Jack's captor Cacciatore after he too had bumped into him. This had the effect of turning Cacciatore into a chicken and Jack back into a human. By the time Jack realized what had happened, the Wizard had already stormed off into the city.

It is unknown how the past Aku's destruction affected his existence.
