-Prince of the Shadowland (formerly)


Benjamin Diskin

First appearance

The Mask: The Animated Series

Skillit is a villain from The Mask: The Animated Series.


He is a mischievous imp who hails from the Shadowland, and can use his own living shadow to suck the shadows out of other people, turning them old fast (only the Mask is immune to this) and allowing him to remain forever young (though he is powerless without his shadow). He is over 4000 years old but, in his own words, doesn't look a day over 12 (because of this when he is captured, he is often forced to do homework). He has known everyone who has ever possessed the Mask such as Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Blackbeard, Billy the Kid and Nimrel (a malevolent corruption of Merlin who was transformed into a monster when a magic spell blew up in his face).

He hates Stanley being the Mask, as The Mask while Stanley is wearing it is nowhere near as malevolent as he wants. Though he originally decides to leave him alone on the pretense that Skillit will be back when the next Mask wearer comes around.

Trivia Edit

  • Skillet is obviously a parady of Peter Pan (skillet, pan: two kitchen utensil names), specifically the version from Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates of which Jason Marsden voiced. The similarities include how Skillet dresses the same as most incarnations of Peter Pan and can also fly and has the same immaturity as a 12 year old boy and aside from living in another world, his shadow is able to escape from him.
  • At the end of the episode, Enquiring Masks Want to Know, The Mask mentions about Skillit being trapped in the Shadowland for good, or he will return if the makers of the show let him come back for another episode, (breaking the fourth wall). But, he didn't return for another episode in the second or third/final season of the series, making Enquiring Masks Want to Know Skillet's final appearance in the series.
  • In Shadow of a Skillit, Skillit says he hates it when goody-two-shoes (good people) posses the mask of Loki like Stanley Ipkiss, and that "Honest Abe" character, revealing that U.S. President Abraham Lincoln use to posses the mask, and he was the first ever good person to use it. But, since Skillit hates it when good people have the mask, he must be responsible for his assassination at Ford's Theater in 1865 by John Wilkes Booth.
