5 is one of the main characters of the Tim Burton animated film "9". He is the Healer part of the Scientist's personality. He is voiced by John C. Reilly. He is one of the characters from the original short.
5 becomes 9’s best friend and they share a strong bond with one another. He is also the apprentice of 2, with whom he shares a special bond. He lost his left eye during a machine attack some time ago, but, as he tells 9, losing it makes concentrating on just one thing at a time much easier. His weapon is a crossbow along with knives, needles, grappling hooks and other weapons which he stores in his quiver. The Scientist remarked that 5 was the first of his creations not to run off or explore the workshop; 5 was very trusting of the Scientist. He has two buttons on his front to fasten his skin.
