Evil Jake is a minor character from the television show American Dragon: Jake Long.
He is the evil counterpart of Jake Long. He is accidentally created by Jake and attempts to take his place by absorbing his chi energy. He only appears in the episode "The Doppelganger Gang" in Season 2 and never makes another appearance.
In "The Doppelganger Gang", Jake learns the benefits of splitting his chi energy into perfect copies of himself, which are called Doppelgangers. But, when Brad challenges Jake to a fight, Jake attempts to make another clone to take the hit in his stead. However, Jake inadvertently uses a negative chi amplifier that causes the new Doppelganger to be 100% evil, hence creating an Evil Jake clone.
Evil Jake looks exactly like the original Jake, but with slightly darker colors. The evil doppelganger eventually goes on to absorb the other Jake doppelgangers in an attempt to overpower the real Jake. In the end, Jake reabsorbs Evil Jake's chi, possibly destroying him.
- While "Yang Jake" apparently was used in production and script to differentiate from Good Jake, as the name was never used in the show, this is a rare case of Official yet Non-Canon.
- The darker tone foreshadows him being different.
- Evil Jake is similar to NomiRandy from Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, DarkDanny from Danny Phantom, and Nega Ben from Ben 10: Omniverse.
