Appears in: "California King"

Ziggy is the main antagonist in episode "California King". He is also known as the "Garbage King".


Ziggy has light blond hair and black eyes. When he's driving the dump truck he wears a blue uniform and hat. At his fortress, he has a red waistcoat and boots with a white shirt and beige pants. He also has purple eyeshadow. This outfit resembles David Bowie's character in the Labyrinth.


He first appears taking Rigby's trampoline away from the dumpster in his garbage truck, with Rigby attempting to follow him. He is later seen watching Mordecai and Rigby make it through his fortress. Once the two arrive at his throne, he challenges Rigby to a trampoline jumping contest to win back his trampoline. Rigby agrees, and the two begin, however it is revealed the trampolines are floating above a sea of lava. Seeing Rigby winning, Ziggy attempts to make him fall into the lava, and even makes a lava geyser but Rigby cannonballs through it unharmed. Ziggy, impressed and surprised, doesn't watch his step and falls into the lava below. He somehow is still alive, even though his motto seems to be "no second chances", and makes another attempt at keeping Rigby's trampoline by threatening to kill Mordecai. He reveals to Rigby why he lives in the dump, before Corny drops himself on Ziggy's head, knocking him unconscious. Ziggy is then thrown out of the fortress and used wigs are dumped on top of him. His fate afterwards is unknown.


  • His quote is "No second chances".
  • He was punished to stay in the garbage dump for only a day, but ended up staying for 20 years.
  • He resembles the character of Jareth from the 1986 film Labryinth."
  • Like Gary, his character is a tribute to David Bowie who died on January 10, 2016.
