The Spanish captain changed around 1680 and became its own Comedia character known as Scaramouche. Unlike Il Capitano Scaramouche is witty, though not as smart as the Zanni. Scaramouche is also strong, agile and graceful and good at singing and usually plays the guitar or lute. Scaramouche is more of a woman hunter and is less boastful than Il Capitano, and he usually finds a way of reversing the consequences for his actions on to someone else.
