Best Samurai Jack Episodes


The Top Ten

1 Jack and the Smackback

Nothing best about this episode, except for the non-stop gladiatorial action and its no-brain quality.

2 C

Ladies and gentlemen, we have just finished the penultimate episode to Samurai Jack and are now approaching the series finale as of the time I write this comment. In this episode, what begun as a light-hearted and engaging relationship between Jack and Ashi continuing from the previous episode slowly and gradually turned into one of the biggest plot twists in animation yet. With Ashi now having been turned against Jack against her will under the essence of Aku that runs through her body ever since she was born, Jack is now put to his greatest challenge yet that rivals even that of protecting a baby from danger. With this episode concluding on a tragic and depressing cliffhanger, Episode C will pit you in a series of twists and emotions that will precede the true final episode of Samurai Jack. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Jack in Egypt

Action, tension, and revelations. This episode has everything and everything to truly mark the turning point of the revival. Through a series of physical and mental challenges and both Jack and Ashi conquering oneself and their past, now the revival is finally set up for the grand series finale to end all series finales. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The best episode of the fifth season. Has Jack finally overcome his grief and find his path to righteousness once again. - Jackamalio

This is where season 5 starts to really get intents. Especially when Ashi fights off everybody *spoiler when Jack is meditating, his anger hallucination blinded into finally sees what kept him back. The three monk gods appear to give him a new sword. Holy crap! Its time to find Aku! - htoutlaws2012

5 CI

Overall, while it did feel a bit rushed, CI was nonetheless still a phenomenal episode. The series finale was truly well done in terms of its execution aside from being rushed. And I must say the ending is quite bittersweet yet satisfying as it finally concludes the show on a good and high note. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Jack and the Zombies

This episode was really nice
I loved the fight between Aku and jack

7 Jack and the Rave
8 Jack Remembers the Past

Love this episode because we get to see how Jack's childhood was like.

9 Jack and the Spartans
10 The Birth Of Evil

The Contenders

11 Jack and the Swamp Monster
12 Jack vs. Aku

My personal favorite from the original series. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

13 Tale of X9

Poignant and maybe a drop of tear if you know this episode was the saddest of the show.

14 Aku's Fairy Tales
15 Jack and the Monks
16 Jack and the Baby
17 Jack vs. Demongo
18 Samurai vs. Ninja

The visuals in this episode are just amazing


What an awesome way to kick off the fifth and final season of Samurai Jack with this season premiere episode! - ModernSpongeBobSucks


I must say that this episode was quite... horny. Horny, but in a relatively good way. The animation was state-of-the-art as usual, the humor was top notch, and the action was great as always. The only thing I suppose that could be polarizing to the Samurai Jack fandom would be the ending to this episode. Regardless, the episode was still good nonetheless. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Everybody loves somebody sometime
Everybody falls in love somehow
Something in your kiss just told me
My sometime is now
Everybody finds somebody someplace
There's no telling where love may appear
Something in my heart keeps saying
My someplace is here
If I had it in my power
I'd arrange for every girl to have your charms
Then every minute, every hour
Everybody would find what I found in your arms
Everybody loves somebody sometime
And though my dreams were overdue
Your love made it well worth waiting for
For someone like you - ModernSpongeBobSucks

21 Seasons of Death
22 Jack and the Lava Monster
23 Jack and the Warrior Woman
24 The Scotsman Quadrilogy
25 Jack Under the Sea

This episode aired in September of 2001 (the same month and year 9/11 happened, but it didn't air on the day it all happened).

26 Jack and the Scotsman, Part 1

Now this episode will really appeal to old fans of the show. In this episode, Ashi's search for Jack brings us to a wide array of past allies Jack has helped in the past from the original show. And the unique and visually stunning presentations of each one are sure to be a spectacle to watch. Oh, and let's not forget... Scaramouche, babe! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

28 Jack, The Woolies, And The Chritchellites
29 XCV

It may have been stolen by an elaborately cruel April Fools joke, but it was well-worth the two weeks to wait for this episode to finally come out. To see the series reach a turning point as Ashi finally begins to see the truth of Jack's purpose in the world makes me even more hyped to see the show reach an epic and satisfactory conclusion that will have me in tears just like Tartakovsky himself said. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


The halfway point of the series revival. While not as good as the previous episodes in the fifth season, XCVI still makes a name for itself and what's to come in the last 5 episodes of Samurai Jack. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

31 Jack and the Three Blind Archers

Probably the bloodiest episode in the fifth season to date. Still, it was quite a phenomenal episode full of not only action, but depth, themes, and symbolism as well. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

33 The Aku Infection
34 Pilot

That dramatic music during the thrilling running sequence around the turnarounds of the temple... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

36 Jack and the Travelling Creatures

This episode really made you think about upcoming episodes, too bad the show ended because it was too violent...

Best fight scene and leaves a lot of room for imagination for the future

37 The Princess and the Bounty Hunters
38 Jack is Naked
