Davy Jones is an antagonist in Kingdom Hearts III. The captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones preys on wayward sailors lost at sea. He originated in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

Personality

Davy Jones has a strong Scottish accent which is accented by various vocal and facial tics and has an unctuous and mocking laugh. He has commonly extended vowel sounds and is known to release water through his mouth when in despair or rage. Despite Jones' evil and ruthless nature, his character has appeared to be deeply influenced by situations involving love and passion, as a result of the ruined relationship he had with Calypso, the sea goddess, in the past. Davy Jones fell madly in love with the goddess Calypso. His character's passionate nature is rarely shown to others, such as when he plays his theme on the pipe organ whilst shedding a single tear over Calypso and ultimately meeting her aboard the Black Pearl. He had cut out his own heart, but even then, not even Calypso thought Davy Jones was cruel. Davy Jones is similar to Cutler Beckett in personality as both men were: cruel, cunning, ruthless, greedy, and murderous among other traits. However, unlike the coward Beckett, Jones can be very scary and quick-tempered in order to show he means business.


Jones had a pipe organ on board the Flying Dutchman, and played it seemingly on a daily basis. Utilizing the tentacles that made up his "beard", Jones plays his organ in a way that could only be matched if play by three or more ordinary human organists. The song he often played was the same as the one played by his locket. In times of intense emotional anguish, Jones would use his organ to vent his anger and suffering. It is through his organ that he would show his more sensitive and troubled side.


Physical Appearance

Davy Jones' appearance was not unlike that of many other sailors; but after becoming evil and crazy and after abandoning his duty, he had gradually taken the appearance of various aquatic life, flora, and fauna. In his new form, Jones' head resembled an Octopus, with a "beard" of 46 tentacles hanging from his face. During his duel with Jack Sparrow, he lost one of his two larger tentacles. A siphon was located on the left side of his face, which makes up for his lack of a human nose. He had a crab claw for his left arm and his right leg resembled that of a crab, which in turn resembled a peg leg. Davy Jones' hat, which was a tricorn, had its front corn was bigger than the other two and divided, so that its silhouette resembled devil horns.

Jones' only weapon was a sword he normally carried attached to his belt. Before using the small sword of the then-deceased James Norrington, Jones carried an old barnacle-encrusted broadsword at his side.

Story

Davy Jones appears in the latest installment of the series. His role is similar to At World's End, only with him commanding the Kraken. Organization XIII attempted to steal his chest, believing it to the Black Box. When he fatally wounds Will, Davy Jones is attacked by Sora, Donald and Goofy but he manages to get rid of them and is stabbed in the heart before he can kill Sora.

Trivia

  • Davy Jones is an interesting case. He removed his heart, the organ, and stopped feeling emotions much akin to a Nobody.  This suggests that if magical means are used to extract the physical heart, the metaphysical heart goes along with it.

Origin

Davy Jones first appeared as the main antagonist in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
