Iago is one of the main antagonists in Spongebob and friends meet Aladdin, and later, one of the main protagonists from Spongebob and Friends meet Mulan. He is part of a royal menagerie in Arabian city, Agrabah. He is named after the villain Iago in the play Othello, by William Shakespeare, as evidenced by mention in the TV series revealing that he has a twin brother called Othello. (who interestingly enough is set to become a villain, like Iago, in service to the Fang Empire) as a shell louger, he gained the rude but fun-hearted uncle of the team, and offen cautionus if not distracted by gold or something that makes him look good.
Iago resembles a Scarlet macaw. He can speak fluent English and has the ability to perfectly mimic other characters' voices, due to Jafar's influence. He also possesses a fine knowledge of magical lore learned from Jafar, which often comes in handy as Genie's (and for the spongebob and friends adventure siries, Mushu) magical knowledge is 10,000 years out of date. He is easily frustrated and openly vocalizes his frustrations. Although he denies it, he actually has a good heart, as his guilt from abandoning his friends or leaving them to deal with a crisis usually makes him intervene, and he even sometimes come out as a hero, but almost every time, at the expense of losing something of value, which he without fail berates himself for afterwards.
Iago will do almost anything to keep out of danger or at least try and talk Spongebob or the others out of attempting something he deems crazy or impossible, usually both. He's very clever, and makes witty, sarcastic remarks constantly. But he's also very greedy, which sometimes makes him gullible if he thinks there's treasure to be found. In other words, he's a wacky bird that can make anyone laugh.
Spongebob and Friends meet Aladdin
In the first movie he resents living under the Sultan and Jasmine as much as his owner Jafar does, though he contrasts Jafar's dark brooding with angry, sarcastic ranting. Iago often says how he hates crackers which the Sultan always gives him. The Sultan seems to not know until the end of the first movie that Iago can speak complete English and is evil. Whenever Iago gets annoyed he points out that he is molting, often pulling out his own feathers to emphasize it. he escaped and vanished when Jafar was arrested.
