Chutney Chocolatecane is a Christmas elf Rogue played by Travis Willingham for "The Night Before Critmas" (Sx41).


Not only the senior workshop elf, but also one of the oldest elves in the North Pole. As knowledgeable as you are cantankerous, you miss the halcyon days of yore, when toys were made by hand and built exclusively from wood and metal and came with an inherent physical danger or choking hazard. Lawn darts? Those were your idea.



Chutney starts off seeming like a loyal elf to Santa, but as soon as Saint Nick gets kidnapped by the Hallow King, he soon changes his tune, putting forth the idea of leaving Santa to die and taking over the North Pole. He is also quite frustrated by the tasks Santa gives him, complaining about nobody wanting a wooden Voltron, that he can't wire a Gameboy, and how the hair didn't move on a troll doll he made. When the other elves leave with Santa back to get Christmas done, Chutney willingly stays behind, possibly due to guilt over stabbing Santa, possibly because he didn't want to get put in a home after his centuries of work in Santa's shop.



Chutney is one of the oldest elves working for Saint Nick. For a long time, he tolerated this burden but secretly sought revenge by killing Santa Claus.

"The Night Before Critmas" (Sx41)

When the group of Christmas elves reached the unconscious Santa, an opportunity arose for Chutney. He stabbed St Nick into the chest to end what he thought to be an oppressive rule. However, Santa survived, while Chutney was kidnapped by the Hallow King and vanished into the darkness.
