King Nod is the ruler of the Golden City of Baghdad, the father of Princess Yum-Yum, and a supporting figure in the animated movie The Thief and the Cobbler. Despite his high-ranked position as king, Nod's rule is somewhat a bit less strict, treating his rule with indolent attitude. He even remained idle at the advices of his devious adviser Zigzag, who in turn helped his enemies, the One-Eyes. Eventually, he resolved to become a responsible ruler when Princess Yum-Yum, accompanied by the kind con artist Tack, a tempted thief, and some of their friends, helped Nod in defending their kingdom and restore the Golden Land to its previous state. During the events of Heroes vs. Villains War, King Nod joins the Royal Council when his kingdom is threatened by the forces of evil.
