—Black Hat, "The Perception of Evil"
Black Hat is an extremely manipulative and sarcastic man who enjoys causing pain towards others. He is also very cruel and evil, lashing out at anyone who defies him. He is a man with a bad temper, and seems to only tolerate the other members of the organization.
Black Hat wears a black top hat with a maroon band (along with a menagerie of other hats underneath), as well as donning a rimless monocle. He has somewhat dark grey skin, sharp, pointy teeth with a greenish tint, and a forked tongue. He wears a black trench coat, a light grey waistcoat, dark grey pants, a red dress shirt and a black tie. He also appears to wear dark grey gloves, and occasionally carries with him a black walking stick that he forms from his shadow. His shoes are black with white spats.

- Black Magic: As seen in "Ice Cream of Fear", he has some sort of proficiency in black magic, as he is able to bring back 5.0.5.'s ice cream to a seemingly normal state, while also giving it demonic qualities.
- Laser Vision: In "Bad Security", Black Hat killed a blue jay by shooting deadly lasers out of his eyes.
- Charisma/Manipulation: Black Hat, as a salesman, uses various forms of charisma and manipulation to convince other villains to buy his inventions.
- Portal Creation: As shown in "Squeak", Black Hat seems to be able to open portals (possibly to the underworld, as shown by the ghosts coming out of the portal he opened).
- Instrumentalism: As seen in "The Note of Destruction", Black Hat appears to be proficient in playing piano/organ.
- Singing: He has the ability to proficiently sing. He also tends to make people go insane with his singing.
- Shadow Manipulation: As shown in "The Lost Cases of Elmore", Black Hat can teleport via his shadow. He also can transform his shadow into a cane.
- Telekinesis: In the same episode, Black Hat is shown to have the ability to choke people by simply using his mind. He does this to Dr. Flug as a way to caution him not to boast about himself.

- Counting his appearance as a "living painting" in "The Portrait of Evil", Black Hat has never been absent from an episode, and is the only character to never do so.
- He bears a resemblance to Count Bleck from the video game Super Paper Mario, namely in the sharp teeth, monocle on their left eyes, large top hats, formal attire, and of course in the fact that they are both evil.
- He is named after the term "black hat", which refers to the villain of a Western film.
- He can play both the piano, and the violin. The one he owns has strings made out of cat guts.
- He likes neither dogs nor cats.
