Jean-Claude Truchet at the office

Jean-Claude Truchet is a character from the Donkey Kong Planet skit, La nuit des vivants-morts. He is an undead journalist who partakes in mundane activities, such as having breakfast in the morning, brushing his teeth with a wire brush and going to work. He is shown to reside in a neighborhood with other zombies. Being a zombie, his movements are clunky and sluggish and his speech resumes to groans, although he is sometimes capable of articulating sentences.

On the way to his office room, Jean-Claude holds conversations with other zombies. However, he is deathly afraid of living people, particularly math teachers and office clerks, and flees down the halls terrified when he encounters a living Donkey Kong as a math teacher in one of the building's rooms. He takes shelter behind a desk in his office and grabs a hammer for defense, but is soon found by Donkey Kong who ambushes him with other zombies as they start reciting geometry facts.
