Best Samurai Jack Episodes

The Top Ten Best Samurai Jack Episodes

1 Jack and the Smackback

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

2 The Birth Of Evil

Aku's fight with jack's father was bad ass.

We finally see Aku's origin story - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate


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

4 Jack in Egypt
5 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

6 Jack and the Spartans

If you noticed similarities to Frank Miller's 300, that's because it IS based on the same source material! - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

7 Jack and the Zombies

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

8 Jack Remembers the Past

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

9 Jack and the Rave
10 Tale of X9

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

The Contenders

11 Aku's Fairy Tales
12 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

13 Jack and the Swamp Monster
14 Jack and the Monks
15 Jack and the Baby
16 Samurai vs. Ninja

The visuals in this episode are just amazing

17 The Scotsman Quadrilogy
18 Jack vs. Aku

My personal favorite from the original series. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

19 Jack and the Warrior Woman
20 Jack and the Lava Monster
21 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).

22 Seasons of Death
23 Jack and the Scotsman, Part 1

The interaction between these polar opposites is hilarious - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

24 Jack vs. Demongo

Jack goes against a resurrected army of the world's most powerful warriors and defeats them all. BEST ACTION SEQUENCE EVER. - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

25 Jack, The Woolies, And The Chritchellites

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

28 Jack and the Haunted House

The animation is very chilling, almost like watching a horror film - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

29 Jack and the Three Blind Archers

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

31 Jack Learns to Jump Good

You can fly?!
No, jump good! - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

Such an underrated episode.

32 Pilot
33 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

35 The Aku Infection

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


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

38 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

39 The Princess and the Bounty Hunters
40 Jack is Naked
