Scaramouche, better known as the Pied Piper of Ruination, the Crooner of Carnage, the Ambassador of Annihilation, and the Eradicator of All, is voiced by Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants, Ice King, Mr. Mayor, etc.). Scaramouche is a robot assassin that uses the power of sound to his advantage over his foes. For example, He can use his flute to create golems, lift large objects, and move multiple stones or people at once. He also utilizes a very unique sword, similar to a tuning fork, which causes an enemies weapon(s) to explode on contact, due to high frequencies. This can also effect buildings and other objects. He also uses his Chinese glaive in combat, which can also be controlled by telekenisis.

'''Scaramouch the Merciless''' was an android who claimed to be Aku's top assassin.
   
However, his combat style can be used against him, if his flute is destroyed. His tuning sword was also used against him by Samurai Jack, when he simply threw his dagger at Scaramouche just before it exploded.

His appearance is similar to [[X9]], but with teal eyes instead of red, a longer neck, and a larger functional mouth with teeth and a tongue. He wears a black straw hat, yellow scarf, red high-heel boots, a long purple coat with red interior, and a large black belt.
   
Scaramouche met his end at the hands of Samurai Jack, when the samurai obtained his glaive and sliced the robot in half, causing it to explode.

== Personality ==

Unlike other robots sent to kill Jack, Scaramouch is very boastful and talkative. Upon noticing that Jack was without his [[Jack's sword|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, and it is unknown if Aku himself considers him such.

His arrogance is also his downfall since he lets his guard down long enough for Jack to use his knife, which was imbued by Scaramouch's own magnetic force from his own knife, as a makeshift shrapnel grenade and cripple his neck (the source of his ability) as well as heavily injure him.

Laughing, Scaramouch declares that Jack is no threat without his sword, and calls Aku on his mobile phone to make a report, but Jack destroys the phone with a thrown kunai.

Samurai Jack! Man, it is good to see you babe. What took you so long? I decimated this village days ago, just for you. Oh wait, this is you, right? I mean who could recognize you with all that gear, and ruggedness, baby?
I'll tell you who: Me! Be-bee-ba-boo-bo-da... Scaramouch the Merciless! The Pied-Piper of Ruination, the Crooner of Carnage, the Ambassador of Annihilation, the Eradicator of All, baby! Also known as... Aku's most favorite assassin, babe.

—Scaramouch introducing himself, Episode XCII

Scaramouch the Merciless was an android who claimed to be Aku's top assassin.

Appearance

His appearance is similar to X9, but with teal eyes instead of red, a longer neck, and a larger functional mouth with teeth and a tongue. He wears a black straw hat, yellow scarf, red high-heel boots, a long purple coat with red interior, and a large black belt.

Personality

Unlike other robots sent to kill Jack, Scaramouch 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, and it is unknown if Aku himself considers him such.

His arrogance is also his downfall since he lets his guard down long enough for Jack to use his knife, which was imbued by Scaramouch's own magnetic force from his own knife, as a makeshift shrapnel grenade 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 cleaves him in half with his own sword.

Background

By the time Jack reaches the plume of smoke, he arrives at a ruined city, filled with rubble and the corpses of its dead citizens. Jack meets the robot assassin Scaramouch, who claims himself to be Aku's most favored assassin and remarks on Jack's nigh-unrecognizable appearance, including the loss of Jack's sword. In a flashback, Jack recalls his signature weapon falling down a pit as he looks in horror. Laughing, Scaramouch declares that Jack is no threat without his sword, and calls Aku on his mobile phone to make a report, but Jack destroys the phone with a thrown kunai.

Satisfied with this turn of events, Scaramouch begins to fight Jack, first by playing a magical flute that forms a golem out of the city's rubble. Jack quickly discovers that Scaramouch can rebuild the golem easily by reanimating more rocks to replace any part he breaks off. Landing among a pile of rocks after destroying the golem, Jack is once again swept up in another hallucination, this time seeing the rocks around him as the children of the city, begging him for help, and the mysterious rider is looking down on the scene. Jack pleads for their understanding, which made Scaramouch thinks Jack has gone "beaucoup cuckoo". Eventually Jack destroys the flute, but Scaramouch reveals that his voice was the true source of his magic, and the robot proves his point by scatting. This impromptu singing animates Scaramouch's sword to fight Jack with.

While Jack barely dodges the sword's attacks, Scaramouch brings out another blade which opens up like a tuning fork, demonstrating its ability to vibrate at a frequency powerful enough to shatter Jack's own knives. As Scaramouch fights Jack to a standstill, he gloats over his victory, but Jack throws his remaining sword at Scaramouch, still vibrating from clashing with the tuning fork sword. The sword explodes at the last second, severely damaging Scaramouch's vocal chord equivalent, leaving him unable to fight. Scaramouch admits defeat as Jack cleaves him in two with Scaramouch's first blade, after which Jack keeps the tuning fork sword for himself as he leaves.
