- This article is about the Animatronic Captain Hook, a boss in Epic Mickey. For the real Captain Hook who appears in Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, please see Captain Hook.
"I hope you're GEARED up for this...Because this is going to be... BARRELS... of FUN!" - Animatronic Captain Hook, before he battles Mickey.
Animatronic Captain Hook is the third boss of Epic Mickey. In Epic Mickey, Captain Hook appears as an Animatronic made by the Mad Doctor, as a captain for the pirates. However, when the Mad Doctor stopped him and Pete Pan from being able to fight, Hook went beserk and turned on his crew, using a machine that turns pirates into mechanical Beetleworx robots, and vice versa if you choose to paint the machine, to turn the crew into Bashers. The rejected design of Smee and a few others escaped to Ventureland.
He is voiced by Corey Burton.
In Epic Mickey
During his fight, you have three options:
- You can either fight him off the plank, deplete his health completely, or platform your way up the rafts and rescue the Sprite, the Wasteland's version of Tinker Bell. This will bring Pete Pan to Mickey's aid and will fight Hook for you, which increases your Paint capacity, and the good ending will show Hook dueling Pete Pan for the spirit.
- If you choose to fight him off the plank, Hook will be chased away by a robotic version of Tick-Tock and your Thinner capacity will be increased instead, and the bad ending will involve Hook having been devoured by the Crocodile. As you battle Hook, he can shoot Thinner from his gun. He can also throw several bombs at you. Use the Spin move to counter them. Switch the track line, so that it will lead to the edge of the ship where the Crocodile is waiting for him. Use the Thinner to Thin out his barrel armor and push him with your Spin move. He will pushed down to the end of the track where he will be damaged. As you damaged him, his attacks become more quicker and powerful than before. He can also warp from one barrel to another. As you spray him with Paint, he will try to defend himself from the Paint, making unable to attack for a moment.
- You can defeat Hook without the help of the Crocodile or Pete Pan by hitting him into the walls and beams of the ship. After doing so enough times, he will malfunction and his body will fall apart, leaving him as nothing more than a mechanical head, also increasing your Thinner capacity. Either way of doing the Thinner battle will earn Mickey the Captain Hook pin, but doing the Paint version of the battle will instead earn him the Hook vs. Pete Pan pin from Pete in Mean Street.
In Epic Mickey 2
In Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, Captain Hook disappeared and nobody explains the player how; it may be related to the pirates being driven from Tortooga by Blackbeard. But there is a mission that involves finding Hook's clothes in some thinned chests and then giving the clothes to Animatronic Daisy or Smee to have the opening to the Construction Site in Ventureland.
If you give Daisy the captain's old clothes, it allows her to put the clothes on a dummy to convince Smee to find his old boss. Or, if you give the clothes to Smee, he'll give you a fastpass, which will get you into Tiki Sam's Basement Tunnel to the Jungle Cruise for free. If you use the fastpass, Tiki Sam will say: "You got a fastpass? I haven't seen one of those in ages."
- The scene where Pete Pan fights Animatronic Captain Hook is based off a similar scene from the movie, Peter Pan.
- When Hook battles Pete Pan, he doesn't use his Thinner or Paint cannon on him even though he used them on Mickey and only using a regular sword. This is likely due to him piping down his craziness and having a change of heart now.
- There's a glitch where if you defeated Hook with him falling apart, and put a TV Sketch afterwards, he will somehow reconstruct himself.
- The real version of Captain Hook appears in the 2012 spin-off, Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion.
- Even after defeating Hook, the Sprite can still be saved and Pete Pan will come to congratulate or thanking Mickey and the pirates will still act like Hook is alive, but this is most likely to be a glitch. it's also possible that, as an Animatronic, his "death" could only be a temporary setback and could be rebuilt.
- Before the battle, Captain Hook will say "Keep your hands and feet in the ship at all times" as part of his speech; this is a reference to the talking skull that appears at the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland Paris, which has a similar line. It could also be referring to the original ride.
- Despite the fact he is not the "real" Captain Hook, the pirates still treat him like he is.
- This Captain Hook is based on the Animatronic Captain Hook in the "Peter Pan's Flight" attractions at the Disney theme parks.
