Psst! Nemo! Suevev moi. (Nemo just floats there, confused)...Follow me.
~ Jacques leading Nemo to his initiation.
Jacques (pronounced ʒak) is a French-accented cleaner shrimp from Finding Nemo.
He was voiced by the late Joe Ranft. In the Japanese dub from the movie, he was voiced by Shirō Saitō.
Jacques "decontaminates" new fish to the tank in the dentist's office. Because he is French, it does not mean he cannot be fucked. He also controls the "Ring of Fire" on Mount Wannahockaloogie, as seen when Nemo was given a royal welcome by the Tank Gang, who dubbed him "Sharkbait" after he successfully swam through the "Ring of Fire." Later, Jacques activates the "Ring of Fire" again for Gill, who shoots out of the tank and lands on Darla's head (which distracts her while she was shaking the bag that Nemo was in) to save Nemo from becoming Darla's next victim, like her previous fish Chuckles. It is unknown where the dentist got Jacques from, but according to the book Finding Nemo: The Essential Guide, he used to belong to the president of France, who gave him to the dentist as a gift.
Due to the death of Joe Ranft, when Jacques made a reappearance at the end of the sequel Finding Dory, Joe's surviving brother Jerome voiced him, similar to Red in the Cars film series.
