I'm starting to suspect Maddrux the Many did not use it to grant him the strength of a thousand, but to summon one thousand of him.
―Blinky to Jim

Hero with a Thousand Faces is the thirty-third episode of Trollhunters and the seventh episode of Part Two.

Official Synopsis

Multiple problems plague a frazzled Jim when his amulet goes on the fritz and Claire invites him to meet her parents at a family barbecue.


While trying out some different stones for his armor, a yellow stone called the Aspectus Stone makes clones of Jim, and at a bad time too: Jim is attending a BBQ for Claire's mom to win her parents over after what happened with NotEnrique. When one reckless clone (portraying the side of Jim's personality fully dedicated to his duties as a Trollhunter) runs off with the amulet, Jim and the Jims must stop Hunter Jim before it's too late.




  • It is revealed that Claire's mother is the councilwoman of Arcadia.
  • There are different color jackets for each Jim clone (each to fit the archetype of the emotion):
  • In an interview with the producers, it was revealed that Anton Yelchin actually came up with the idea of this episode, and it was his favorite one to do.
    • In fact, according to Aaron Waltke on his Twitter account, he states that Anton loved playing "crispy" Jim in the episode "Young Atlas" so much that he challenged the producers to make another wild Jim episode like this one.
  • According to Richard Ashley Hamilton, the present day segments of the graphic novel The Felled are set after the events of this episode.[1]
  • Vendel reveals to Jim that the human Periodic Table has only "a few" of the elements that actually exist. In actuality, there are even more elements (common and rare in either the human or troll world) that anyone can imagine.
  • Claire's middle name is revealed to be "Maria".
  • Title: The episode's title is likely a reference to the renowned work of comparative mythology of the same name by Joseph Campbell.
  • Continuity: Mr. Nuñez remarks the time when Jim damaged his house while babysitting Enrique (who was really NotEnrique) in "Adventures in Trollsitting".
  • Running Gags:
    • References to Jim's legs being skinny
    • Hunter Jim yelling "GLORY!" before donning his Trollhunter Armor
  • Goof: Chef Jim is not present when the clones are returned to the Amulet of Daylight.
