An alternate universe version of Jack appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! Jack’s character design is made by Shuji Maruyama. Jack has purple eyes, fair skin and spiked blonde hair, with two much longer strands in front of his ears that hang further down the rest of his hair. His other accessories include a neckband, similar to the one worn by Yugi Muto, a belt buckle and earrings in the shape of the letter A, the first letter of his last name. In the English dub, Jack has a British cockney accent. He pronounces words like “little”, “better” and “settle” as “lit’l”, “bet’r” and “set’l” and words like “I” “my” and “me” as “ai”, “moi” and “mei”. He also makes puns on biking.
Jack is an arrogant man at the beginning of the story who thinks of his opponents as little more than entertainment for himself and his audience. Unlike Seto Kaiba however, Jack is more emotional and hot-headed who later openly shows his caring for his friends as the series progresses and he matures. Jack can be manipulative, up to the point of even using his friends to get what he wants. However, he eventually realizes the error of his ways and becomes less manipulative. During his Duels he states that he enjoys entertaining the crowd and as such is often very theatrical with his Duels.
He is known as the King of Turbo Duels, but mainly goes by The King. In the dub, he has titles, such as “Master of Faster”, “King of Cards” and “King”. During his Duel with Goodwin, Jack states that he gives up becoming King and is fighting for Carly and the rest of his friends. After Goodwin’s defeat, he works with Yusei and Crow to help those in need rather than focusing on his own ambition, but he still maintains a grumpy attitude. Jack has few applicable or even social skills other than Dueling and has been consequently fired from several jobs in one day.
He also believes that Dueling is a clash between souls, and that one who uses cards of darkness instead doesn’t deserve to Duel. Rally with the Duel Runner chip, for example, when in the original, Rally stole it himself and Jack is completely uninvolved and oblivious. In the Japanese anime his name is spelled both “Jack Atlus” and “Jack Atlas”. Kazuki Takahashi has also spelled the name “Jack Atlas”. Jack is adept at hand-to-hand combat, having taken down Syd’s entire gang single-handedly.
