The Agency Against Hank Wimbleton (abbreviated as A.A.H.W.) is the main antagonistic faction of the Madness franchise, serving as the main antagonistic faction of the Madness Combat series on Newgrounds, and the secondary antagonistic faction of the video game Madness: Project Nexus and its sequel, Madness: Project Nexus 2.
Their goal is to take out Hank Wimbleton, as well as anyone else who opposes their campaign for complete domination of Nevada, such as Sanford and Deimos.
The Sheriff was apparently the leader of the organization from Madness Combat 2 to Madness Combat 3. After he was taken out, The Auditor took charge around the time of Madness Combat 5. Under his leadership, the 1337 agents were upgraded to the l33t agents. New ranks such as the Accelerated Training Program and Mag Agents also arose.
Jesus and Tricky both used to be allies of the organization until the latter assassinated the former. Upon being revived, Jesus rebelled against the organization and the Auditor, while Tricky left to continue his vengeance against Hank.

As their name suggests, they possess knowledge of engineering, as well as leadership over lesser ranked A.A.H.W forces. They are extremely disciplined, always working in teams and never back down from a fight, even if the odds are against them. Most A.T.P. Engineers are heavily armed and carry extra ammo.
Later on, a pair of A.T.P.s that were enhanced by the new dark powers of Auditor. Faint black flames appeared around their heads and their eyes turned red and glowing. After they were sent to kill Sanford and Deimos, they succeeded in killing Deimos and wounding Sanford. The two A.T.P. engineers regrouped outside, but died when Hank, who had just undergone transformation into a larger mutant form, threw a tube containing an explosive substance at them. Despite dying, these two gained the Auditor's gunfighting skills, the ability to dodge bullets, and great intelligence. They were able to work as a team very well, using hand signs to communicate.
