Lord Fathom is a character from the Disney Junior animated series, in Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is a sneaky shark like mer-wizard who plots to take over the Never Sea. He is voiced by Malcolm McDowell.


Lord Fathom has dark grey-green skin and tentacles for hair that resembles kelp. He has bright yellow eyes that seem to almost glow underwater, claw-like fingers, and a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth. Lord Fathom has a shark-like tail accompanied by fins on his arms, and a breastplate of armor with spiked shoulder pads.


Lord Fathom is a very dark and sinister villain with a wicked, yet sarcastic sense of humor. Lord Fathom is very manipulative and will not hesitate to destroy anyone he perceives as a threat to his own sinister plans. He is also vengeful, holding a vendetta against King Neptune and Captain Colossus for a prolonged period of time after his defeat. His only ally is Sinker, who he is shown to genuinely appreciate having around, but is easily annoyed by most often.

Powers and Abilities[]

Aside from his natural abilities underwater, Lord Fathom's most notable source of mystical power is the DarkLight Emerald, when placed in his trident, gives him the power to control creatures the of Never Sea, conjure green blasts, manipulate the sea itself, and bring back sunken shipwrecks from underwater. However, without the emerald Fathom is virtually powerless in terms of magic.

He is also surprisingly effective at disguising himself, as evidenced by posing as an old mer-person to trick Queen Coralie into revealing the location of the DarkLight Emerald hidden in Neptune City. Later after he was defeated by Jake he would attempt to use the disguise once more to trick the young pirate captain into letting him retrieve DarkLight Emerald but failed.



Lord Fathom was once King Neptune's royal adviser who plotted to overthrow him. During his first attempt to rule the Never Sea, he summoned the mighty Strake to attack Neptune using the power of the DarkLight Emerald. However, the tide of the battle turned in Neptune's favor. Thanks to the combined forces of Captain Colossus and Neptune they were able to defeat Lord Fathom by sealing him in Tortuga Triangle, while the Strake was sealed away deep within Dreadnaught Cove. However, in the process Captain Colossus's battleship, the Mighty Colossus was dragged into the watery depths of the Never Sea by the Strake. To assure that Lord Fathom couldn't use the power of the DarkLight Emerald to take over the sea again, King Neptune gave it to Queen Coralie who locked the emerald away deep within Neptune City for years. Even after his imprisonment Lord Fathom is still rather well-known and feared by the Mer-People for his villainous ways and great power. As revealed by Izzy, Mr. Smee, Sharky and Bones, Lord Fathom's nefarious reputation is even known by the inhabits of Never Land.
