Arcano was the central villain in the 2008 and 2009 years. Starting in early 2008, he first used his Giant Coconut Crabs
disguised as animals, to take over a circus. Then he destroyed the mansion that was home to the crew in 2007, so everyone had to relocate to the circus. He waited there until he could assume Kuse
's identity and sire a child with Mare
. To keep everyone else busy, he partnered with Hare
by rescuing them from Hell, and rebuilding missing parts from Claire. In the end, Barnum
helped let Mare escape, but the crabs destroyed everything while he kidnapped Kuse, Knacks
, and Mare to leave them in a dungeon for a year.
The following year in 2009, he appeared after the kidnapped trio escaped and debuted his genetically grown children Death
and Mr. Balloons
. They were created from Mare's eggs and were quite powerful. After they were eventually defeated, he attacked but was killed by Raccoon
's motorized weapon.
