Stickybeard is the captain of the Candy Pirates, who travels the world searching for and stealing candy. He is a major enemy of the Kids Next Door, and a particular enemy of Numbuh Five, with whom he nevertheless shares a mutual respect.
When the invasion of Earth began, Stickybeard lost his ship, the Sweet Revenge, to Planet Fusion. In the Future, a generic NPC named "Licorice Lips" seems to have taken Stickybeard's place as the highest ranking crew member at Candy Cove, but someone by the name of Captain Brock Candy has assumed his place as Captain. It may be presumed that Stickybeard fell in the initial battles in the war between Fuse and Earth. Furthermore, in the Future a candy pirate named Root Canal Rita claims that Stickybeard disappeared while looking for a new ship and crew. In the Past, a Candy Pirate at Bravo Beach mentions that Stickybeard once stole Captain K'nuckles hat.
In the past, he gives missions concerning traitors within his crew and finding his candy treasure. He tells the player and Edd the story behind the crazy brain candy. He also thwarts Brittle Butter's plan to sell Stickybeard's candy to Father by replacing the detail note with a note from himself.
