Jake is the default character in Subway Surfers. He is the first character seen in the game and is also the first playable character used when playing Subway Surfers for the first time. 


Jake is a light-skinned boy with a light-blue jacket, a white hoodie sweater with a red shirt inside it. He also wears a red hat with "Sub Surf" written, with green and red shoes and light-blue pants. He is also always seen holding a yellow graffiti spray can.

During the Miami update, two outfits, the Dark Outfit and the Star Outfit were given for him to buy and wear.
