King Nod is the mighty ruler of Baghdad, the father of Princess Yum-Yum, and a supportive figure in the Miramax's animated movie The Thief and the Cobbler. Despite his high-ranking position as a king, Nod's rule is somewhat a bit less strict, treating his rule with indolent attitude. He even remained silent at the advices of his devious adviser Zigzag who in return helped his true enemies, the One-Eyes, led by King One-Eye himself. Eventually, he resolved to become a responsible ruler, when Princess Yum-Yum, accompanied by the kind con artist Tack, and the tempted Thief, and some of their friends, helped Nod in defending their kingdom and restore the Golden Land to it's 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.
