"That's 'THE' HACKER TO YOU!!"
- The Hacker
"Someday... somehow.... I'll return!! And when I do, I will take over ALL OF CYBERSPACE!!"
- Hacker vowing revenge before his banishment to the Northern Frontier.
The Hacker is the main antagonist of Cyberchase. He is an evil cyborg who is bent on taking over a computer-esque realm called Cyberspace for his own needs of power and glory.
Hacker was created by Dr. Marbles and used to work for Motherboard. However, he later turned bad and tried to take the Encryptor Chip from her heartdrive.
Due to this, he was banished to the Northern Frontier alongside Digit, a robotic bird who was built by The Hacker, and was also the one to put Motherboard's heartdrive back in. Hacker then commanded Digit to build Buzz and Delete, his current henchmen when he was exiled.
He then returned to his base and downloaded a virus. Jackie, Matt and Inez were at the computer while The Hacker was sending the virus to Motherboard and the group of children unwittingly sent it to Motherboard. Luckily for Cyberspace, Dr. Marbles had already set up the firewall when this happened, and Motherboard is left partially infected.
He also owns a ship called the Grim Wreaker (a parody of the Grim Reaper). His goal is to de-throne Motherboard and rule all of Cyberspace. He nearly succeeded on at least two occasions.
Because of his many failures of conquering Cyberspace, he is not as greatly feared as he was before. However, he is currently trying to remake his villainous and manipulative ego.
He was also forced to work with the Cybersquad on some occasions. For example, he had a fanboy named Ledge who tried to please him by hackerizing Sensible Flats, but failed, and he later tried to go against him. He planned on stealing the Bluebird of Zappiness, a device that might cure Motherboard of her virus. When Hacker discovered this, he reluctantly decides to team up with the Cybersquad in order to get the device. He and Inez both shared an equal hatred for Ledge, and would often refer to him as a "dirty rat". So far, he has left behind by the Cybersquad, and the Bluebird of Zappiness is also gone.
The Hacker is a vain, uncaring, manipulative, and pompous cyborg with a planet-sized ego and a thirst for power and dominance. He desires control of cyberspace to fuel his narcissism and spread his interpretively beautiful visage. He is widely hated, but this does not bother him. He does have hidden depths outside of his villainous nature, such as hating pink but loving puce, being pacified when he took up being an artist, a fan of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and adores the Prince by Machiavelli. While he started out as a powerful, heartless, and diabolical villain, he has lately became a laughing stock, and seeks to restore his former glory.
The Hacker is a tall, slender, muscular green humanoid and is bald, and he wears a black hairdo similar to Elvis Presley's because of this. His attire consists of black trousers and shoes, a white shirt, and a purple cape with a high collar and is red on the inward facing side exactly like Emperor Zurg's. Along with his beefcake physique, his pride and joy is his freakishly large, pointy chin.
