Quincy, otherwise known as Q, is the king of the Funk Trolls, being one of the two heads of the Funky Family. He first appears in Trolls World Tour.

Appearance

King Quincy is a purple-skinned Funk Troll with a yellow nose. His hair has dreads of pink and blue, with a tuft of fur that's not part of the dreads on the right side of his head. He has a blue beard. His fur and neck are covered in golden tinsel strips and he wears a golden cape with a star pattern, as well as jewelled rings on the fingers/toes of his front limbs. He also has gold shades and a star earring on his left ear, which matches the one worn by his son Prince D. Quincy stands taller than his wife Essence and his sons, as well as the other Funk Trolls.

As a Rock Zombie, his purple skin takes a gaunt grayish undertone, his hair turns black and red, he loses his golden shades and jewelry, his fur turns black and doesn't reflect light, and his beard turns dark grey, ending in several spikes. His golden cape is replaced by a studded leather one, he has a nose piercing and his eyes glow red.

Personality

King Quincy is a kind and fun-loving father, husband, and a wise ruler of his people. Despite knowing of the ancient Pop Trolls' misdeeds, he doesn't hold them against Queen Poppy, taking the time to explain to her the truth of the Troll Tribes' past and wisely telling her that the Troll Tribes are not all of the same, like Poppy thinks, and "denying [their] differences is denying the truth of who [they] are".

He shows fearlessness and orders his people to prepare for battle when the Rock Trolls come for them and their string.

Alongside his wife, Quincy comes to the realization that music may have started with the strings, but it truly came from the Trolls and their hearts.

He tells "dad jokes" (lame ones according to his son Cooper).

Skills & Abilities

He has most normal Troll abilities.

Music

He sings with a deep bass vocal.

As king of the Funk Trolls, it was his sworn duty to protect his music, including the purple string of Funk, until the strings were destroyed and the Trolls reunificated as a species.

History

Pre-Trolls World Tour

The royal couple expecting their babies, moments before Cooper's egg is snatched away

At some point of his life, Quincy became king, married Essence, and they soon got their twin eggs. Unfortunately, one of their unborn sons ended up being stolen by a bird, but unbeknown to them, it had landed in Troll Village. Since then, they had been trying to find their lost son while raising their remaining one, Prince D, as their only child. Like his wife, he was unaware that Cooper had landed in Pop Village far from Vibe City.

While Essence kept their people through hard times, Quincy's mind was always on his lost son, and he never stopped looking for him. When Darnell was old enough to understand, both Essence and he told Darnell of his lost brother. By the time near the events of Trolls World Tour, Quincy had started to lose hope for ever finding his lost son.

Some time later, Cooper was wandering in the desert when he got sucked into Vibe City. As a result, King Quincy, along with Queen Essence and Prince D, warmly welcomed him back to the family.

When Poppy, Branch and Hickory arrive at Vibe City, they're greeted with a friendly welcome. However, the Funk King and Queen are not prepared to combine their Funk strength with the Pop Trolls' strength, and Darnell explains the reason why; in the past, the Troll Tribes separated after the Pop Trolls had stolen the six strings for themselves. Although the Funk Trolls don't hold a grudge against the Pop Trolls for their ancestors' wrongdoings, they explain differences matter to them, and what makes them Funk Trolls is more important than anything else. As the Rock Trolls attack, Quincy gives the order to prepare for battle and both he and Essence prepare themselves.

Soon, the Funk Trolls find themselves in darkness as Riff unplugs the lights. The entire Funk Troll Tribe is captured and taken to Volcano Rock City, where Barb begins to play the ultimate power cord. Branch stops Barb from transforming Poppy into a Rock Zombie, but is the first to be transformed instead. Soon, Barb transforms all the Tribe leaders, including the Funk royal pair as their sons can only look on in woe.

After Poppy smashes Barb's guitar, Quincy and Essence, as well as Branch and the other leaders, are freed from being controlled, but the Strings have been destroyed as well, apparently resulting in the destruction of all music. While the Trolls are saddened by their loss, Cooper and D begin to make music, causing Quincy and Essence to realize that music truly came from within their hearts, which is something that could never be taken away; while it started with the Strings, they no longer needed them since music came from within themselves. The Trolls sang together, inspiring harmony between them and restoring their true colors.

The Trolls are finally an united Kingdom again. At the end credits, he's seen dancing with his family.

King Quincy and "Mama Bootsy"

At one point early on the Funk Trolls were ruled by a king who was a giant Funk Troll. This was changed at some point and instead Quincy and Essence replaced this early concept. A lot of his early designs were reminiscent to a wizard or an early 20th century alien.

From DreamWorks website: "Working with George Clinton, as King Quincy, was unbelievable to me," says Ron Funches, who plays Cooper. "Seeing him perform in concert was one of my biggest inspirations to get started in entertainment. It looked like he was having so much fun, and I wanted to have that type of fun. Now, I get to have that type of fun with one of the fathers of funk himself!"[1]

Trolls World Tour

Things in Vibe City haven’t always been so laid back. In fact, generations before, the Funk Trolls were forced to flee to a remote corner of the kingdom because the Pop Trolls were trying to steal everyone else’s music. They were trying to bland it out, de-funk it, auto-tune it—it wasn’t cool.

The Pop Trolls were not a priority for the king since one of his beloved twin boys, Cooper, was taken from him many years ago. Once Cooper finds his way home, and the royal family has been reunited at last, the king can finally sleep sound at night. King Quincy had nearly given up on finding Cooper after his egg rolled out of the nest many years ago. But now, with the royal family reunited, Cooper and his parents enjoy a tearful, heartfelt homecoming.
