Stickybeard is a recurring Kids Next Door enemy. He is the captain of the candy stealing pirates. He and his crew attempt to steal all the candy and other sugars and desserts especially on special days like Halloween and Christmas.
Stickybeard, like every adult villain, hates the Kids Next Door. He favors Sector V as his target, especially Numbuh 5. He views the Kids Next Door as competition for candy as if it were scarce even though he already possesses a ship filled with mountains of candy. Stickybeard can also be kind to some kids he seems to trust.
He views Numbuh 5 as a rival, but respects her as "a fellow sweet tooth" and when they first met, he kidnapped her and tried to convince her to betray the KND and join his crew as his new first mate and eventual captain of his ship once his teeth have completely rotted.
Stickybeard, being the captain of Candy Pirates, wears a hat despite being a pirate captain. He is a large man who has an eye patch at one eye. He also has a long and fuzzy orange-colored beard that seems to be sticken with different flavored lollipops. He also wears a black captain hat with the symbol of their pirate crew.
Powers and abilities
Stickybeard frequently targets the Kids Next Door due to their large stash of candy, and is most closely associated with Numbuh 5, also a lover of candy, who he respects as a rival; he even offered her the position of First Mate and heir aboard his ship in Operation: P.I.R.A.T.E., which she turned down.
