"Here I bow at the place of your defeat, where you made your final stand against The Clan - I will carry out your objective in my name. I have found an ancient being of great power that will help me claim my revenge. In the days to come, The Clan will finally meet its end. I will kill The Clan, and fulfill our destiny. First I will kill your arch enemy, Colonel Crunch. I've prepared myself for this day, Nazi Mitch - and I will not fail you."

The Paleman was a character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as an antagonist. He is played by Michael Behrenshauser. A founding member of The Clan, Paleman grew hateful of the team and joined the U.B.N.V.A.. Though he idolized Nazi Mitch, Paleman wasn't one to work with others. When Biscuit Savage schemed against The Clan and asked Paleman to assist his operation, he angrily refused. After witnessing the rise and fall of Nazi Mitch and the U.B.N.V.A., Paleman sought vengeance against The Clan. He joined forces with The Creator in a bid to destroy The Clan. Paleman killed Captain Jumpa, who he hated most, and the U.B.N.V.A.'s former leader, Bread Nelson

When John Bacchus reunited The Clan, Paleman learned the team discovered a device built by The Creator. As Quinn Diesel retrieved it, Paleman made his return by killing Colonel Crunch and Biscuit Savage, before fighting The Clan. Paleman and Creator would battle The Clan again at Mekron Woods; later, Paleman and Kaine West battled Flynt, Vin and Rasputin at Torture Wobbler Church. Paleman killed Rasputin, and influenced Quinn to kill Vin. 

After Creator was killed, Bacchus and Paleman had a final duel, which allowed Paleman to mortally wound Bacchus. Before Paleman could finish him off, Flynt intervened and killed Paleman with Creator's axe - ending his rampage. 


The Paleman was a founding member of The Clan - a group of treasure hunters dedicated to tracking down and safeguarding ancient and powerful artifacts. He created the team alongside Captain Jumpa, John Bacchus and Glen Tennis. Over time, Paleman began to take on violent tendencies, forcing Captain Jumpa to excommunicate him from the team. 

After being disowned by his allies, Paleman was taken in by Nazi Mitch, who trained him to be a cunning and skilled fighter for the United Bread Nelson Villains Association  Paleman was often sent out to kill targets and undertake reconnaissance missions. Yet as time went on, he would lose self-confidence, and began hiding away in the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters for months at a time. Around this time, Paleman became acquainted with Biscuit Savage, a mighty brute and another major member of the organization. However, the two had a rather rough relationship. 

Over the years, The Clan would try to locate Paleman on numerous occassions, but they were never able to find him. For a while, they weren't sure if he was even alive. 

Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric BoogalooEdit

The Paleman was loitering outside of the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters when he was approached by Biscuit Savage. Savage asked The Paleman to take part in his "operation", which involved wiping out The Clan. Paleman claimed he already had other plans, and angrily told Savage to leave. Savage walked off, and angrily asked why no one wants to kill people today. 

Between FilmsEdit

For the next year, Paleman laid low in the U.B.N.V.A., choosing to avoid major conflicts brought about by The Clan. When Nazi Mitch was killed by The Clan, Paleman was infuriated by the loss of his idol. It was around this time that The Creator of The Crumbs was freed from the artifact he forged. Seeking vengeance against The Clan, Paleman would form an alliance with Creator. Paleman sought to wipe out The Clan with Creator's help, in exchange for helping Creator reclaim a device he built that can destroy the world. 

Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass ConsumptionEdit

As The Clan began their quest to remake The Crumbs, Paleman began a mission of his own to hunt down and slay his former allies. He went to the overhangar where Nazi Mitch died, where he knelt before a miniature picture of Mitch, and vowed to carry out his objective in his name. After Bjorn Alvarez betrayed The Clan, he sent a message to Paleman regarding the discovery of Creator's doomsday device. After receiving this message, Paleman called upon Quinn Diesel, the son of Vin, and instructed him to acquire the device. Quinn is uncertain over having to face his father. Paleman assures Quinn that "his time is near", and hands him a key to access the headquarters where the device is kept.

Paleman drives to Torture Wobbler Church, and meets with The Creator. He updates Creator on the ongoing situation, stating that The Clan has found his device and he sent Quinn to reclaim it. Creator tells Paleman they need the Forbidden Sword to wield The Crumbs' power, and only Lord Tyresius knows of its location. Paleman heads back to the headquarters to begin his assault against The Clan. While loitering outside the headquarters, Paleman catches the attention of Colonel Crunch. Crunch approaches Paleman, and is very surprised to see he's returned. After a tense exchange, Paleman walks up to Crunch and stabs him in the stomach. He tells Crunch that The Clan is next, and leaves him to die alone.

Flynt, Kick, Vin and Rasputin head off to consult with Biscuit Savage about the nature of the device; as they do so, Paleman discreetly follows them and hides in a nearby tree, listening. When the group departs, Paleman jumps out of the tree and runs across the main field. Soon after, Reginald discovers Crunch, who dies by his side. As Reginald mourns, Paleman approaches him and orders him to send a message to Bacchus. Paleman then heads off to confront Biscuit Savage. Savage threatens Paleman before a fight breaks out. As Savage overwhelms Paleman, he urges Paleman to leave or die, to which Paleman stabs him in the stomach. In the meantime, Reginald alerts Bacchus that Paleman killed Colonel Crunch. This infuriates The Clan, and they run off to confront Paleman, who heads to a tennis court as Quinn finds the device.

"I killed your best friend and your worst enemy - all that's left ... is me! A lot's gonna' happen, Bacchus - I don't think you're ready for it!"
- Paleman to The Clan, before their fight in the tennis court

Bacchus arrives at the tennis court with The Clan. Paleman exchanges heated words with The Clan, before revealing that he killed their best friend and worst enemy, confirming that he murdered Captain Jumpa. One by one, each member of The Clan challenges Paleman, although they're all struck down and defeated. Paleman's return frustrates Bacchus, but he nevertheless agrees to continue on their mission. In the meantime, Paleman and Quinn head to the church, where they present Creator with his device. Shortly after, Tyresius arrives, having been summoned by Creator. Horrified, Tyresius runs off to warn The Clan, with Paleman and Creator following him to Mekron Woods, where The Clan is burying Colonel and Corporal Crunch. Paleman and Creator confront and battle The Clan, with Flynt, Vin, Kick and Reginald fighting Paleman. He strikes down Flynt and Reginald before battling Vin and Kick. Their fight stops after Creator kills Big Beard, at which point Paleman leaves the scene. After Creator confronts Bacchus and knocks him unconscious, Paleman walks over to Creator and asks what they'll do now, with Creator declaring that they'll kill The Clan. 

As Creator hunts down Lord Tyresius, Paleman remains at Torture Wobbler Church, where Flynt, Vin and Rasputin confront Kaine West. Paleman joins the confrontation, and shortly after a fight breaks out. Vin fights Paleman, tackling him to the ground as Flynt runs off to find the "new artifact". Paleman strikes down Vin and goes after Flynt. After Rasputin guns down Kaine West, Paleman runs over and fights him, eventually stabbing him with his sword. As Rasputin dies, Paleman walks off and leaves his sword in front of the church for Quinn to claim. As Vin approaches the weapon, his son emerges from the bushes. Vin is happy to see him, but Quinn suddenly murders his father, which Paleman watches from the bushes. Some time later, Paleman meets with Creator near the church, and they update one another on recent events. Displeased by Paleman's lack of progress, and him losing sight of his goals, Creator disbands their alliance and departs. Despite this, Paleman texts Bacchus, urging him to face Creator and meet him at the track.

With help from Flynt, Bacchus fights and incinerates Creator using the Forbidden Sword. He remembers Paleman's message, and runs over to the track, where he finds and confronts Paleman. Bacchus vows to kill him as he did to Creator, and a duel begins. The two are evenly matched, before Paleman strikes Bacchus down and stabs him with his sword. Before he can deliver a second stab, Flynt runs over and knocks Paleman to the ground. He raises Creator's axe and stabs Paleman in the neck, killing him immediately. Despite being mortally wounded, Bacchus retrieves the "new artifact" from Paleman's pocket, and merges it with the Forbidden Sword - thus remaking The Crumbs. As Bacchus dies by Flynt's side, we see Paleman's picture of Nazi Mitch sticking out of his pocket - a reminder that The Clan's final victory came with their greatest sacrifice.


  • The Paleman is one of three Bread's Crumbs villains who made a brief appearance in an earlier installment and returned in a later installment. He briefly appeared in the second film and will return in the fourth film. On the other hand, Banny Passerini and Axel Gunner briefly appeared in the second film, and later had larger roles in the third film and The Two Man Trio, respectively. All three characters will return for the fourth and final film. 
  • The Paleman's name is based off of Paleman, a character from the fourth season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. The character was created when Michael Behrenshauser, who has pale skin, joined the cast of the second film during the first day of filming. Ultimately, the characters bear no relation or similarities.
