Jean-Luc Varn Darn is a very buff and violent Hollywood action star of Belgian descent. He is determined to end the life of Gustavo Rocque after he stated he hated Brussels on Scuttlebutter. Ultimately, Jean successfully launched an assault upon Rocque Records. However, unfortunately for Varn Darn, Gustavo would survive.

The character Jean-Luc Varn Darn is a parody of the Belgian actor Jean-Claude Van Damme, who lives in the United States, and mostly has roles in action films. Jean-Claude's nickname is "The Muscles from Brussels" thanks to his martial arts and bodybuilding background.[1]


Varn Darn cares deeply about defending the honor of Belgium. He is quick to anger, especially when people make pretend they are eating Belgian waffles when, in reality, they are eating frozen toaster waffles. When enraged, Jean-Luc Varn Darn will not hesitate to destroy a nearby news reporter on live television and send Gustavo death threats (while destroying nearby signs).

While most fans agree Varn Darn was not morally justified at all in his pursuit of revenge due to a typo, many believe he is partially good due to his attempts to kill Gustavo. This has lead many to classify Varn Darn as an anti-hero.


Jean is a Hollywood action star and a household name. In Big Time Blogger, Jean was shocked to find Gustavo Rocqué had left incredibly racist comments regarding Belgium's capital Brussels on his preferred social media platform, Scuttlebutter. At this point, Varn Darn decided killing Gustavo would be the most suitable way to ensure such comments would not be made again. Prior to his attempted murder of Gustavo, Varn Darn Stated: "Gustavo Rocque. You have insulted Belgium for the last time."


Strength And Durability:

Jean-Luc Varn Darn is incredibly strong, capable of decimating the back door of Rocqué Records with his bare hands. Varn Darn demonstrated similar strength when he swiftly knocked over a news reporter with a single swipe. The news reporter continued to remain on the ground and never got up during the rest of the broadcast, likely meaning he died. After this, a bum bumm sound effect played while Varn Darn made a menacing gesture. Naturally, Varn Darn was capable of bringing Gustavo to the brink of death offscreen.

Varn Darn is incredibly durable too, managing to survive the attacks of the incredibly powerful Mr. Fong. Fong, who was capable of defeating all of Big Time Rush with a mere basket of biscuits, could not do so much as leave a scratch on Varn Darn, only enraging him. It is unclear, however, if this feat of durability is due to Varn Darn's immense defenses or specifically due to his immunity to biscuits.

Varn Darn's abilities are largely linked to his mood. (for more information see locations that make jean-luc varn darn angry)

Intelligence and Keen Senses:

Jean-Luc Varn Darn has incredibly high intelligence, though his ability to apply his intelligence is quite context-dependent. Varn Darn, a relentless defender of Belgian pride, immediately found Gustavo's racist post in spite of Gustavo's account being entirely new and quickly located Rocque Records, demonstrating an ability to parse intel comparable to CIA agents such as Jo's father.


Gustavo's waffles are not in the frame on the Blackberry

Varn Darn also demonstrated powerful sensory abilities and was immediately able to distinguish Gustavo's waffles from frozen toaster waffles in spite of the fact that the image was taken on a blackberry camera.

However, Varn Darn's intelligence does not apply to all contexts. For instance, Varn Darn threw multiple Belgian waffles at Gustavo and left him on the brink of death instead of killing him.


  • Gustavo Rocque. You have insulted Belgium. For the last time.
  • These aren't Belgian waffles. These are frozen toaster waffles.
