Captain Squirk, or Capt. Squirk, is an ultra-rare "Moshling" in the Zoshlings set within the Moshi Monsters franchise. Squirk leads their group on a mission to explore the galaxy to find new worlds and melodies.
Captain Squirk's debut was in the first Super Moshi mission in season 2, where they had crashed due to the Rhapsody 2 (ship of the Zoshlings) crashing as C.L.O.N.C.'s fist of doom backfired. From then on out the player helps Squirk and Squirk acts as a "mentor" alike Elder Furi in the first season's missions.
Personality & Habits
The captain tends to speak highly of others and addresses them with their full title, even going as far as granting titles to those he feels lack them. Respect, perhaps affection, and a need to make everything seem more grand and clear in his perception motives him to do so. Squirk is one to quickly jump to conclusions and is thus a bit chaotic but remains calm and collected when the situation is dire and needs to lead his officers.
He wears something similar to kabuki painting and his helmet seems to be of a same design as General Fuzuki's.The helmet is a headdress, worn by Zoshling captains. The emblem on the headdress is made from Goop-tonite. The game "Magic Hero Squirk VS Gamappa" makes the connection to Japanese culture more apparent because the genre of big creatures in cities, such as Godzilla, are popular themes for Japanese super heroes, Sentai, which Squirk bares a resemblance to.

For unknown reason, the Rhapsody 2 malfunctions and crash lands in the Gombala Gombala Jungle. (again) Leaving the ship because it is out of power in search for help
Unlike any other occassions Captain Squirk was written, he appears rather irritable, spouting insults under his breathe towards Dr. C. Fingz
- Main article: Moshi Monsters Magazine: Issue 51
Captain Squirk ask First Officer Ooze how he experienced the moon party on which Ooze ends it with the punchline that there was just no atmosphere.
Captain Squirk thanks Toasty for getting the melody right to start up the ship's engines.
17 - Big Top Ballyhoo I contacted the Super Moshis after the ship's transmitter picked up a signal indicating a crewmember had been detected! When Ooze turned up with a poster for the Cirque du Bon Bon, I could barely believe my eyes. Dr. C. Fingz is working at a circus as The Great Zoshlingo? Never in all my light years did I think I would see such a thing!

- First Officer Ooze - Squirk's right hand man whom he turns to in tough times. Even though this implying being close, Squirk has not shown much emotion when he got him back half-dead.
- Dr. C. Fingz - Embraces him when he gets back
- Splutnik - Cries upon getting him back, refer to him as Chief Engineer Splutnik.
- Tamara Tesla - Refers to her as Super Scientist Tamara Tesla
- Sprockett & Hubbs
In the in-game Missions, they were given short-lived employment to help fix the Rhapsody 2, but Hubbs pressed the launch button before Super Moshi could leave the ship. They weren't seen through the missions leading up when Dr. Strangeglove took over the ship as they went into hiding. They only appeared again on the C.L.O.N.C. mothership where they help you proceed within the base.
It is unclear if Squirk knew of their "past" but the quickness of hiring them shines a light to Squirk having somewhat of a naive nature.
- Simon Growl - 7 albums deal
- Dr. Strangeglove - Ate all his space sandwiches and Squirk fought him in the final battle, but he never voiced opinions on him.
