Mr. Pickles is an evil, demonic, aggressive and bloodthirsty border collie and the titular protagonist villain of the Adult Swim animated series of the same name. Originally a normal dog being used as sacrifice by the ancient civilization of Pavanatra Sluganotharat, Mr. Pickles somehow gained demonic power when he was about to be sacrificed by unknown divine entity.
He is voiced by Dave Stewart.
Visually, Mr. Pickles very authentically mimics a normal male dog, easily feigning innocence in the eyes of the townsfolk of Old Town, up to the point where he is praised for solving the cases of his own crimes. In reality, however, he is a demonic being. It is possible that Mr. Pickles's true form is different from his canine coil. Before he becomes a demon and during his previous life as a normal dog, Mr Pickles had yellow fur rather than black fur.
Mr. Pickles is quite wicked, sadistic, nefarious, manipulative, and prone to violence: he seems to be aroused by killing and imprisoning human beings in his secret lair that lies within his dog house. However, despite his dangerous and evil nature, Mr. Pickles is extremely loyal and protective of his human boy, Tommy; this often leads to Mr. Pickles killing or mutilating those who bully or harass the boy. He also seems to have a sense of justice, as he kills a man site for avoiding him to raise an Indian camp where lives a family.
Mr. Pickles appears to only hunt down people with corrupted souls or having considerable sins weighing on their conscience; he also torments Tommy's grandfather but is doing it in a relatively compassionate and merciful manner, only humiliating him (while other victims are usually physically mutilated). The hellhound shows quite a lot of creativity in the tortures, adapting the punishment to the sins of the victim (an example of this would be when he ripped out a young man's stomach and intestine because he forced his girlfriend to have an abortion).
Mr. Pickles is also extremely lustful, salacious, concupiscent, and provocative, so he satisfies his sexual desires with virtually any living thing (and some corpses too), regardless of its size, gender, species or beliefs. He also likes to smell gas, drinks alcohol, and often makes his victims worship him and perform heavy physical work. Severed body parts are sometimes used to build grisly and horrendous trophies. Another passion, giving Mr. Pickles his name, is love for salted pickles.
Powers and Abilities
So far, Mr. Pickles has demonstrated the following powers:
- Immense physical strength
- Cunning and sharp intellect
- Ability to speak in demon language, which causes other animals to obey him without question (with the exception of Dear Boy and snakes).
- Greatly amplified injuries from even the slightest scratch or bite, such as tearing off someone's face with a mere touch.
- Sharpened senses, way more powerful than those of a normal dog.
- Opposable Thumbs
- Skilled in murdering anyone, even weaponized shoes.
However, despite his seeming invulnerability, Mr. Pickles also had at least one known weakness: sensitivity to vacuum cleaner noise. He managed to overcome that weakness by enjoying masturbating with the vacuum cleaner.
Despite Pickles' demonic powers and intelligence, he is still being outsmarted by someone who knows him very well, in this case, is Grandpa. When Pickles tries to kill Grandpa, he manages to outwit Pickles and escape to live another day to fight back him. His arrogance also makes him to let his guard down as Grandpa manages to punch and stun him while he laughs at Grandpa after framing him for murder.
Even though he seems like a demon, Mr. Pickles shows clear signs that he can die by serious situations. (Such as when he was trapped in a snake putt, he couldn't control them so he was in danger or when Grandpa points a shotgun at him while trapping him in the cage, Mr Pickles shows clear sign of fear and panic)
