12 oz mouse Wiki

Golden Joe is a loud-mouthed, close friend of Mouse Fitzgerald. He is a rapping wizard-like being who is capable of teleportation. His voice is distorted by a reverb effect and constantly shouts instead of speaking more softly. He often irritates people around him, Roostre in particular, due to his use of long and verbose sentences. Golden Joe is a somewhat well-known rapper, as Rhoda recognized him and couldn't believe the latter was in his bar. As a songwriter, Joe places a lot of importance on his ability to rhyme. It is unknown where Golden Joe's ability of transportation originates. Shark regards him to be "all dissapeary and shit" because of this power. Golden Joe also has a secret power where if he says something then says "ya know what i'm sayin?" after that sentence, the sentence he said will automatically become true, making him be able to rewrite reality.


Golden Joe is a circle shaped mouse/orb creature with two lime green mouse ears and stick-figure arms and legs. He also has two eyes, a large-mouth, and a single gold tooth which has a dollar sign on it.


Alliances & Friendships[]

Golden Joe's main alliances are Mouse, Skillet, Roostre, Rhoda, Liquor and the Eye, though, Peanut and Kiki both stand out the most as with Peanut, Joe often hang-outs with him as they became best friends by drinking beer and they care for each other, even if they were playing with weapons to escaping a underwater prison from a bunch of Pineapple guards by escaping via jet-skies, however, when Peanut was killed by a nuclear bomb and his remains where put into a beaker, Joe cried in horror of his now-dead best friend. He also has a romantic relationship with his DJ Kiki but when he is vanished from her he wanted to find her, before being reunited with her in "Final Beginning."


Like most of the major characters, Joe dislikes Shark, Rectangular Businessman and Clock, though with Shark, Joe is shown to be afraid the him due to his scary looking appearance, he even would teleport out of the bar when Shark was talking to Rhoda, and this fear got worse when he was captured and tied up by Shark, also he was beaten up by the Second Eye. He was also attacked by the Hand when he and Peanut were hunting it down, and the Hand was moving all over him until Liquor trapped it in a jar. He was also arrested by a bunch of Pineapple guards.
