First Appearance Game Slave 2
Voice Actor Paul Greenberg (English)
Isabel Martiñón (Spanish)

Iggins is a conceited and hyperactive boy featured as the main antagonist in the episode "Game Slave 2". He took the last Game Slave 2, which was originally meant for Clarence Wong and later for Gaz; out of rage, Iggins was stalked and terrorized by the latter until he tearfully surrendered the gaming system. He was voiced by Paul Greenberg. In the Spanish dub, he was voiced by Isabel Martiñón.

Appearance

He is shown to be around the same height as Gaz, although Gaz is noticeably more slender. Iggins has flat green hair, bulging eyeballs with no eyelashes and square teeth. He wears a dark red-brown t-shirt with a flaming piggy on it, brown shorts, and triangular orange shoes with dark brown socks.

Personality

He is, as said above, hyperactive and very conceited. He is obsessed with gaming and believes he is better at it than anyone else, including Gaz, to the point that he even keeps spare batteries in case his gaming system, the Game Slave, runs low on power, much like a fire alarm, labeled "For battery emergency, break glass".

Role in Invader Zim

In "Game Slave 2", Iggins was first encountered waiting in line at the City Center Mall for the new Game Slave system. When Gaz showed up next to him, he bored and angered her with his incessant boasting about his gaming achievements (claiming that he completed more mini quests in one game and beating a supposedly-unbeatable final boss in another). When the two finally reached the front of the line, there was only one left, but it was reserved for another person by the name of "Clarence Wong." Iggins made off with it by faking his name, but was later called on his deception by an angry Gaz, who warned that Iggins would not get away with it without invoking her wrath. Unrepentant, Iggins claimed that he "saw an opening and went for it", and added insult to injury by stating "that's why I'm the superior gamer."

Upon reaching his home, Iggins was already well into his new game, but was haunted by Gaz in his own house. After a long, horror-filled chase, he eventually surrendered it to Gaz, but almost died in an elevator crash.

Iggins was later seen in "Walk for Your Lives", being arrested for "standing around and doing nothing." He ran away when the policeman arresting him got distracted by the slow-moving explosion. He was supposed to die here, too, but his current whereabouts are unknown.

He made a cameo in "The Voting of the Doomed" as GIR showered the entire crowd with salted nuts, among the kids who are cheering after Zim's speech. He can also be seen in the second shot of "Bolognius Maximus" in the cafeteria.

Quotes

  • "I saw an opening and I went for it. That's how I beat Katchukablorg in 'Battle Battle Footy Kick', and that's why I'M the superior gamer!"
  • "But...I'm a better gamer than you..."
  • "You'll never be a better gamer than me! Play all you want! I'll always be better! ALWAYS!!"

Trivia

  • Iggins was originally supposed to die in the elevator crash at the end of "Game Slave 2". albeit a non-graphic death. However, Nickelodeon wouldn't allow it either way, to Jhonen Vasquez's irritation. Plans to kill Iggins along with Dib in "Walk for Your Lives" were also made, but never came in fruition.
