Appearances in film

In the Demonic Toys films
Jack Attack first appears when he and the other toys attack Guy Hesse. Hesse, who is dying, sees a spot of light shining from the ceiling to the floor. He crawls over to the light and rests. But as he bleeds on the ground, the toys around him begin to come to life. He gets bitten in the neck by Jack Attack, has his fingers bitten off by Grizzly Teddy, and is shot in the chest by Mr. Static
Jack Attack appears next when the toys attack a security guard named Charneski. As Charneski returned from from calling the police, a toy called Grizzly Teddy hits him in the leg with a bat, causing him to trip, and lose his gun. The gun lands in the hands of Baby Oopsy Daisy, who shoots Charneski in the leg. Jack Attack wraps his tail around Charneski's neck to strangle him while Grizzly Teddy bites him and Baby Oopsy Daisy stabs him in the crotch with a knife. Two other people, Mark and Judith watch this, in horror.
Jack makes one more appearance in the film when he attacks Mark and Anne. Running, they reach a security office, only to find the entire place trashed. They are attacked by Mr. Static and Baby Oopsy Daisy, until Mark improvises, using a bug spray and lighter for a flame-thrower, and burns Baby Oopsy Daisy and Mr. Static. Jack Attack attacks and bites Anne in the neck, but Mark pulls him off and takes the biting. Mark finally gets Jack Attack off his neck, and shoots his head off with a shotgun that Charneski had in his locker.
Dollman vs. Demonic Toys
Like the first movie, this movie takes place mainly in a warehouse. Police officer Judith Gray, who's now inside the building, sees the toys in full view, but is then arrested for breaking in. When the police leave, the toys force the new security guard Ray Vernon to help them with their needs. Meanwhile, Judith, who now knows about Nurse Ginger and Brick Bardo's history, bribes a news reporter to tell her where they are. The reporter tells her they are in Pahoota. Judith makes a deal with Bardo and Ginger to help her kill the toys, and they go back to the warehouse. Meanwhile, the toys kill a blond hooker and make her bleed on the place where the demon from the first movie was buried. As Judith and friends enter the building, a fight begins, ending with Judith shooting Ray in the head (killing him), Mr. Static shooting Judith in the chest (killing her), and Brick shooting Mr. Static (killing him). Brick, who has made a promise to Judith, tries to honor that promise, but loses his gun. The toys tie his hands and feet to two toy trucks and tie Ginger to a clock.
Baby Oopsy Daisy explains to Brick that the Demon's soul is going to go inside Baby Oopsie Daisy at midnight, so he can do the "nasty" with Nurse Ginger. The goal is to get her pregnant and eat the baby's soul, which will make the demon human. As Baby Oopsie Daisy is about to kill Brick, Ginger breaks free and cuts him loose, but is gets carried away by Zombietoid. Zombietoid continues to go after Brick. They fight, until Zombietoid's machete gets caught in an electric socket, killing him. After finding his gun, Brick continues on to kill Jack Attack. Brick arrives at the dollhouse before it's too late and kills the demon-possessed, Baby Oopsie Daisy. Brick calls the police and tells them that Officer Judith Grey died in the line of duty. He leaves with Nurse Ginger in a cab, back to Pahoota.
Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys
Jack Attack appears in Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys. In this film, his look is altered. This is do to the fact that neither Charles Band nor Full Moon had anything to do with the movie.
Several years after the original movie, the pieces of destroyed toys remain in the warehouse. A pair of gloved hands picks up the pieces and stitches them back together. The only toys the perpetrator could fix correctly were Baby Oopsy Daisy and Jack Attack. The unidentified man then puts the toys in a crate, and receives a suitcase full of cash. The buyer leaves with the toys.
A toy, Divoletto, walks around the castle and finds Baby Oopsy Daisy and Jack Attack. As he touches them, his life-force brings the demonic toys back to life. Baby Oopsie Daisy welcomes Divoletto to the club and quickly the trio become friends. When Dr. Lorca leaves to go get Lauraline food, it's revealed that Lauraline and Eric are lovers who have brought a replica of Divoletto to the castle to steal the real one. They intend to run away together and make a fortune. Eric leaves to replace Divoletto and finds the real toy gone. He then sees Divoletto walking around, with himself locked in the dining room. As Eric tries to escape, Baby Oopsy Daisy stabs him in the foot with a kitchen knife and Jack Attack pops out of his box and slashes Eric's throat with his tail. Everyone in the castle hears Eric's screams, but David confirms to Caitlin and Mr. Butterfield that it's Eric having sex with Lauraline.
Later Jack Attack enters Mr Butterfield's room and forces him to jump out of bed which causes the swords on the wall to come down on him, slicing his head off.
A spirit, Fiora, possess Lilith and tells the remaining people to leave the castle in peace and take nothing to avoid consequences. Meanwhile, Lauraline sneaks off to find Eric. She goes into the dining room and finds the doll missing from its box, but also finds some jewels and diamonds in the side table drawers. She then cranks Jack Attack's box up, popping him out and he bites her neck. Meanwhile, the spirit of Fiora disappears and Lilith returns to normal, and tells them that the Divoletto doll they have right now is a replica. Baby Oopsy Daisy appears and stabs David in the arm. Dr. Lorca pulls out a small gun hidden in his coat and shoots at Baby Oopsy Daisy. Dr. Lorca threatens to kill Caitlin if Divoletto is really a replica. David then punches Dr. Lorca in the face and steals his gun. Lilith, David and Caitlin runoff to escape and they run into Lauraline, who survived her attack by Jack Attack. Lauraline grabs the gun from David and points it at Caitlin, since she's the one who brought them into the castle. David and Lauraline fight over the gun and Lauraline screams she's going to kill him the same way she killed David's father. The gun then goes off and hits Lauraline in the chest, killing her. Dr. Lorca runs in and scares them away; he mourns over Lauraline's body. The trio run into the physicians room and head down the staircase. Dr. Lorca grabs a hatchet lying in the hallway and runs into the room, when suddenly Baby Oopsie Daisy jumps on his back and stabs him in the skull, fulfilling Lilith's vision. Meanwhile, David, Lilith and Caitlin run to the Prodigium Abyssus, where Divoletto jumps on Lilith; however, the spirit of Fiora possesses Lilith again, and throws Divoletto off her.
David then smashes Divoletto's head with a shovel, and it's revealed that Divoletto was one of Fiora's personal demons. The demon then sucks Fiora's spirit out of Lilith and takes her back through a portal to Hell. The Demonic Toys then attack, and David decapitates them with the shovel, killing them.
