The Top Ten
1 Jack and the Spartans

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

2 Jack and the Zombies

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

An eerie atmosphere combined with a nonstop exciting fight that shows Aku's fight skills

3 Jack and the Smackback
4 Tale of X49

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

One of the darkest and saddest episodes that isn't afraid to give us a downer ending

5 Jack vs. the Ninja

Awesome use of two opposing colors to depict samurai light vs ninja shadow. One of the best fight sequences with great music and visuals

6 The Birth Of Evil

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


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.

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!

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

8 Jack in Egypt
9 Jack Remembers the Past

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

10 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.

The Contenders
11 Jack and the Haunted House

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

12 Jack and the Scotsman

The interaction between these polar opposites is hilarious

13 Jack vs. Aku

My personal favorite from the original series.

14 Jack and the Rave
15 Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie
16 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.

17 Jack and the Swamp Wizard
18 Aku's Fairy Tales
19 Jack vs. Demongo
20 Jack and the Monks
21 Jack and the Baby
22 Jack and the Warrior Woman
23 Jack and the Lava Monster
24 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).

25 Jack Learns to Jump Good

Such an underrated episode.

You can fly?!
No, jump good!
