Jack the Monkey is a secondary character from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. A Capuchin monkey, and the pet-sidekick of Captain Barbossa. Named after Jack Sparrow, as an insult to the pirate's name, as such he adresses to his pet, whenever Barbossa mentions the name Jack. Always hot-tempered, Jack is considered the meanest, most rotten-tempered simian in all the Caribbean. Jack also appears in the villains tournaments, always at his master's side.
