Uncle Samsonite Edit

  • Uncle Samsonite is a mythological being, his motives are known to take revenge on the Bowen family line and take the souls of children in order to complete a transformation that he may live on. Each transformation lasts 10 years before he must find a new host. His weaknesses include off-brand soda and dance battles and appears to have begun long ago back when knights were relevant during the renaissance. He is the titular main antagonist of the Uncle Samsonite series. Also it is believed that he has taken many universes and versions of the Bowen family so if your last name is Bowen, Ride it, jump on it. He also will ride it sometimes to jump on it.

Origins Edit

  • Uncle Samsonite began in 2007 when Jake Bowen, Larry Bowen, Ben Krochmal, and Nathan Krochmal came up with Uncle Samsonite. Jake Bowen later made a few short videos than decided to make an entire series on Uncle Samsonite which turned out successful.



  • Uncle Samsonite captured and took Jake to Uncle Samsonite's domain at some point during the absence of Jake's Dad in Season 1 Volume 4. Jake is seen as a depressed kid in Season 1 and does not speak of Uncle Samsonite to anyone, worrying that Uncle Samsonite may harm him. He is finally released from Uncle Samsonite's grasp at the end of Season 1 when Mr. Dad, Steve, and Isaac save him.

Jake's Dad (Mr. Dad)

  • Uncle Samsonite seems to enjoy toying with Jake's Dad, as he will randomly appear at given times but not do him any harm. Jake's Dad in season 1 seems to feel as if something is up with Jake, however, at the same time seems clueless. It is implied that Uncle Samsonite's spirit manifested in Jake's Dad's body after the Epic Fight in Volume 10, but was saved when Father John expelled Uncle Samsonite from his body.


  • Uncle Samsonite began feeding on Isaac when he was a kid, as shown in "Uncle Sam". Isaac is first seen in Season 1 Volume 3 when Jake and Mr. Dad go trick or treating. He is seen opening the door, then having flashbacks of when he was in Uncle Samsonite's domain. Steve stumbled into Uncle Samsonite's domain by accident and was able to save Isaac. He begins helping Jake defeat Uncle Samsonite in Season 1 Volume 9 with the help of Steve who helped Isaac out of Uncle Samsonite's realm as well.
  • Isaac was supposedly capture/killed by Uncle Samsonite in season 2.


  • Uncle Samsonite likely doesn't care for Steve and is considered a nemesis to him, as Steve has rescued 2 characters from Samsonite's grasp.
  • In Season Two: Steve is captured by Uncle Samsonite and presumably killed by him as well.
  • Steve has helped Isaac and Jake out of Uncle Samsonite's realm successfully by using his phat dance moves to hold off Uncle Samsonite. He knows Uncle Samsonite's weaknesses and is the definite go-to man when seeking help from Uncle Samsonite.

Father John

  • Father John appears in Season 2 Volume 2 when Mr. Dad has Uncle Samsonite's parasite inside of him. Father John helps Mr. Dad by using a couple of flicks of off-brand soda. Father John seeks to destroy Uncle Samsonite and protect the Bowen family from him. Father John lives next to a church and has a few high tech gadgets as seen in Season 2 Volume 3 and Season 2 of the Finale. Father John is wounded in the finale, however, not killed.

Jeffery (Kroger Worker)

  • Jeffery is an upbeat and friendly guy. He is part of Steve's acapella group and also helps Jake and Mr. Dad as seen in Season 2 Volume 8. He quickly dies after entering Uncle Samsonite's domain due to his friendly attitude, and the fact that Uncle Samsonite does not care about him.

The Cult of Uncle Samsonite

  • The Cult plays only the role of summoning Uncle Samsonite long before the time of Jake, Mr. Dad, etc. They first appear in Season 2 Volume 1 when they are seen walking through the desert, they then summon Uncle Samsonite and die shortly after of Sir Bowen, and Uncle Samsonite.

Sir Bowen

  • Sir Bowen is directly related to Mr. Dad and Jake Bowen. He seeks to destroy Uncle Samsonite and is first seen in Season 2 Volume 1 when he kills one of the summoners and nearly kills Uncle Samsonite. It is thought that he was killed when Uncle Samsonite entered his body opon his near-death experience, however, he reappears in Season 2 of the last episode when he has a dual that is unsuccessful with Uncle Samsonite.

He then continues to inspect and investigate until they become alone in Jake's room where The Detective morphs into Uncle Samsonite.
