Jones is able to clearly imitate such sounds as a flat tire, a couple noisily eating fast food, gunfire, and, memorably, a badly-dubbed martial arts star when he defeats a pair of hoods bullying an Asian grocer. This revealed Jones' expertise in martial arts, which he continues to use throughout the series to great success, often mimicking kung fu voice-over, as he does so. When he introduced himself to Mahoney in the first film, he said he was a physician (what he said was "Monsignor Larvell Jones, MD").Other times he uses his sound-effects ability solely to amuse himself, such as one time at the academy when he imagines himself playing a game of space invaders and makes all the known sound effects from that video game. In the sixth movie, he leapt onstage at a nightclub during a blackout (in uniform, declaring, "The Metropolitan Police Department proudly presents... me."), and launched into a string of impressions, thus keeping the audience from rioting. He also has an ability to communicate with parrots, training them to call Captain Harris a "dork."
Jones and Tackleberry are the only characters to appear in all of the movies, the animated series and the television series.
