Jackal is a notorious member of the Pack and a recurring antagonist in the animated series Gargoyles. Jackal is named after the real-life wild canine of the same name, like all members of the Pack. He is very notorious of being roguish to the Manhattan Clan alongside the Mayan Clan, due to his suspicious behavior.
He and the other members of the Pack look at an article about gargoyles, and Fox suggests the other members to hunt gargoyles. Jackal and the other members are also seen being cheered by some fans during the event.
Soon, Jackal and the other members approach Goliath and Lexington who are unconscious. Jackal and Hyena try to kill Goliath, but used a fire hydrant to thwart them. Jackal and the other members of the Pack try to destroy some gargoyles, but Jackal was eventually attacked by Goliath. He is never seen after that.
Jackal and Hyena are sent by Xanatos to steal a valuable diamond. As soon as the diamond is being stolen, Jackal and Hyena were able to avoid the cops and made gliders to escape. Later, Jackal used a bazooka to shoot the police helicopter, but it soon hit by Hyena and the missile hit the helicopter. Elisa tried to stop them, but they escaped.
Back then, Jackal asks Hyena about the new from Fox, but Hyena refuses to listen. Soon, Jackal and Hyena went into their helicopter to shoot missiles at the Xanatos Corporation helicopter to kill Derek Maza and Xanatos. The two try to do so, but are soon stopped by Broadway, Brooklyn, and Lexington.
As Jackal and Hyena try to escape, the two were captured by Lexington with a fishing net, but soon freed themselves. However, it is assumed if Jackal and Hyena were arrested.
Jackal and the other members of the Pack are sent to give Xanatos immortality by finding Anubis. He soon became very antagonistic by getting Anubis to be his avatar by wiping out almost all the life on Earth, which caused deaths (two crocodiles died when trying to reach the oasis), aging (making Goliath, Angela, Elisa, and Bronx too weak to fight and Wolf and Hyena being young), and destruction (which destroyed Coyote 3.0 and dismantled some cars). The Emir was able to stop him with the Scroll of Thoth to undo all the doings Jackal did.
- Jackal is usually an ally with Hyena, which is very different than the real-life jackal and hyena. This is because jackals are enemies of hyenas.
- His voice actor, Matt Frewer, did the voice of Panic from the animated film Hercules, along with Peter Blaine in Bonkers and Chaos in the TV series Aladdin.
