If you are looking for Evil Chameleon Controlled John, then go here.


John (also spelled Jon or Jhon) is the main antagonist in the Motu Patlu series. He is a wanted Don who always plans to harm Motu, Patlu, and Furfuri Nagar. However, the "Shaitaani Ideas" (evil ideas) of his "Toofani Damaag"(stormy mind) are foiled by Motu and Patlu.

John earns money by looting banks, jewelry shops, and any other riches he can find, but he has not been successful due to many of his plans being foiled by Motu and Patlu. His financial state is evident by the fact that he does not even have a proper house and lives in a hideout in the outskirts of the city.


John is short and plump and is about 30-40 years old. He wears a blue flower-designed suit and a yellow shirt underneath with a brown belt, brown shoes, dark blue pants, and three gold chains with the letter J for John and 8 rings on all his fingers except the thumbs (the jewelry of gold is probably stolen). In the newer episodes of Motu Patlu, John wears a blue shirt with multiple patterns, a light green shirt, and purple pants.


John is a cunning mastermind and every plan he makes, are failed due to Patlu who foils them. Due to him going to jail many times by Motu and Patlu, he hates them bitterly and uses every possible method to harm them and sometimes takes gadgets from illegal scientists in exchange for stolen money.


John is a mastermind in thievery and also has a pistol. He can fool Motu and other people. He is also very good at mimicry and disguise. His ability was to increase his height as seen in Big John. With certain inventions, John can get stronger.


He is less clever than Patlu. He is also physically very weak and knows little to none hand to hand combat. This weakness is not apparent when he is enraged by his own goons however, resulting in him physically abusing them with great strength.


John banega Don, John Banega Don hehe"(John will be the Don, John will be the Don hehe)

Baba! (Daddy!)

This is cheating!


  • In season one episode “Motu Patlu Aur Kite Competition”, John mentions having another brother named Shaun, but he never appeared in this episode and was never mentioned again.
  • In the episode ”Motu Patlu ki Car”, he mentioned that he has a late father and the car is his father's last memory.
  • He gets nightmares of Motu beating him up. This got so serious that in the episode Message Ka Rahasya, John almost jumped off a cliff while "trying to escape from Motu Patlu", thankfully for John, Number 1 stops him.
  • He doesn’t rhyme in the English dub. Instead, he gets praised from Number 1 by telling him he said “wonderful words” and he “talks like a poet”.
  • In the episode, "Chingum ki Gun", John steals Chingum's gun, when he fires the gun, however, tomatoes fall on John instead of coconuts.
  • He likes green chilies.
  • According to the episode Motu the Radio Jockey, John was interested in stealing since childhood, and started stealing from home, then stealing chocolates from a friend, then food, etc.
  • Even if John himself is a criminal, every time Motu and Patlu "cheat" with him, he claims that it is against the law.
