~ Jurgen's most famous threat.

Jurgen the Brutal is the main antagonist of the 2019 film Jumanji: The Next Level.

He is a tyrannical and brutal warlord who stole the Falcon Heart from the Avian Province to form an alliance with the brothers Kababik. He is also responsible for killing Dr. Smolder Bravestone's parents.

He was portrayed by Rory McCann, who also played Sandor Clegane in Game of Thrones.


Jurgen is dangerously ferocious and his ferocity is a force to be reckoned with, going as far as killing his own men and feeding them, piece by piece, to his Hyenas, if they disappoint him. His temper is matched by his equal ferocity, making him prone to violent outburst and acts of sheer murder. Like Professor Russell Van Pelt and his own army, he has absolute command over his men, who follow his every word. He can inflict a deadly instant KO finishing move by hurling an axe at an enemy.



While not much is known from his past, Jurgen the Brutal once killed Dr. Smolder Bravestone's parents. He also stole the Falcon Heart, a gemstone said to bring fertility to the world of Jumanji as long as it could face the sun, from a raid in the Avian Province. He stowed the Heart in darkness, which later caused the world of Jumanji to fall victim to an endless drought. He also had a brother, who he once cared of. However, he killed him before feeding him to his hyenas for his failure.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Jurgen was first mentioned in a letter from the NPC Nigel Billingsley given to the players before they spawn at the Dunes. He is later seen announcing to his followers inside a bar in the Oasis. The players were instructed to follow former girlfriend to the Jumanji Berry tree to get a berry.

The players eventually make it to Jurgen's hideout north of the Dunes in Zathira Fortress. Eddie and Milo were locked in the fortress's dungeons, but Spencer, Alex and Martha save them, while Bethany and Fridge pose as the Brothers Kababik, which Jurgen intended to have an alliance with, to take back the Falcon Heart for good. Eddie attempts to get the Heart from the chest, only to find that it was Jurgen who took it. Later, Jurgen's henchman revealed that the "brothers" are in fact imposters. Jurgen tried to kill them for manipulating him, but Martha, Spencer and Alex intervene. Martha fights all of Jurgen's men, while Jurgen escapes to his ironclad while Spencer anchors it with its rope.

Before the anchor breaks off, Spencer gets on the blimp to fight Jurgen, but he tries to kick him off the ironclad. Spencer recovers while the ironclad crashes into one of Zathira Fortress's towers. Realizing that Jurgen's only weakness is the Jumanji Berry that was picked earlier, Spencer incapacitated him with it, long enough for him to grab the Heart before Jurgen plummets to his presumed death, avenging Smolder's parents. Eddie saves Spencer on Milo and shows the Heart to the sun's rays, before the players say Jumanji, beating the game one more time. Nigel Billingsley then takes back the Falcon Heart from the players, promising to protect it with his life. Milo chooses to stay in Jumanji due to his declining health condition, while the rest of the players were transported back to the real world.

  • Interestingly, although Jurgen is apparently an NPC, he was also shown to have strengths and weaknesses checklist like the avatars inhabited by the "JUMANJI" players.
    • In regards to this, Dwayne Johnson has confirmed that Jurgen is actually the avatar of an actual player and not a NPC. According to Johnson, this plot point will be further explored in the upcoming fifth film, which is already in the works.
  • Despite being the main antagonist of the fourth installment of the series, Jurgen the Brutal proved to be more dangerous than Russel Van Pelt, the main antagonist of the previous film.
