Malkil once helped Mother Brain take over the Palace of Power by trapping the N Team in the Nightmare Zone, but Princess Lana turned the tables and helped the team escape from the Nightmare Zone by tossing a magic apple into his mouth.
- Malkil was also a villain on the cartoon show The Power Team, which was based on Acclaim video games. Unlike the depiction of a green-skinned dwarf, that depiction of Malkil was far more sinister and regal, wearing a skullcap and sporting a long forked beard. Malkil also had the ability to transform into monsters based on fire, water, earth, or wind - called "elementals" - as he was able to do in Ironsword: Wizards & Warriors II.
- Malkil's archenemy, the warrior Kuros, never appeared on Captain N, though he did appear on The Power Team.
