Cracker Jack's appearance is based on manga character Daisuke Jigen from the famous Lupin III manga series. Additionally, C. Jack's Japanese voice actor, Banjō Ginga, voiced Daisuke in "Plot of the Fuma Clan" in the Lupin III anime.
Jack was once a powerful bouncer from Las Vegas who was known for his unstoppable fists. He earned the nickname "Cracker", due to the baseball bat he always wielded. When a certain criminal organization decides to go after Jack for unknown reasons, he decides to elude them by becoming the bodyguard of Blair Dame, the daughter of a wealthy European family, when she decided to travel the world.
Jack disappeared after the trip was over, only to reemerge when an underground fighter named King Bharat kidnapped his younger sister. Jack defeated Bharat and rescued his sister, only to be pursued again by the organization he was eluding. Eventually he was forced to go to Blair's mansion to hide there for a while.
Cracker Jack's fighting style is similar to Balrog's (even sharing some of the same moves in command and name), though he can kick and also wields a baseball bat.
- Of all the Street Fighter EX characters whose backstories were changed, Cracker Jack was one of the most drastic. In the first game, he was a Shadaloo enforcer who preferred working alone. He acts as a drill sergeant (a duty he takes offense to) and teaches inexperienced grunts how to deal with pain and recover from serious injuries. This has been retconned to his current storyline.
- Though a member of Shadaloo (in his original backstory), Cracker Jack seems to have betrayed the organization, as he destroys a Shadaloo train in his ending.
- Cracker Jack is one of only five playable characters to have shortened names in their lifebar (the Japanese name of Bison and Akuma renamed in the international version are not counted). The others are Shadowgeist, Skullomania, Cycloid Beta and Cycloid Gamma. In Street Fighter EX and Street Fighter EX 2, his name is written "C. Jack", but in Street Fighter EX 2 Plus, it is simply "Jack".
- Birdie's story in Street Fighter V is identical to Jack's in the Street Fighter EX games; an ex enforcer for Shadaloo, fleeing the organisation to a billionaires daughter (in Birdie's case, Karin) and becoming her bodyguard in return for protection.
