Villain Overview

If I lose, everyone loses!
~ Dark Kat
Viper, wait! Our little altercation has given me an idea. Instead of fighting each other, we should fight together against our hated enemies. Yes. With them gone, Megakat City will be ours for the taking, and more than enough to go around. Yes, think of it, Viper, an invincible alliance of evil.
~ Dark Kat plotting an alliance with Dr. Viper.

Dark Kat is the main antagonist of the SWAT Kats animated TV series and ironically the main reason for the SWAT Kats' birth.

He was voiced by the late Brock Peters.


Dark Kat is a wanted mastermind and his goal is to destroy Megakat City to create a new lawless town called "Dark Kat City". Being highly intelligent and calculating, Dark Kat often anticipated his foes' actions with great accuracy and it was a recurring theme throughout the series that all of his hideouts were rigged with explosives. His attempt to bomb the Enforcer headquarters indirectly led to Chance and Jake's fallout with the Enforcers and the birth of the SWAT Kats.

Personality and Abilities

Imposing both physically and mentally, Dark Kat is a calculating schemer, a villain whose greatest strengths lie in his creativity and ability to come up with myriad plans. Even when he has to take the possibility of loss into account, he tries to rig conflicts in his favor by setting traps. While prideful, he is not above making alliances to further his ends, such as teaming up with other villains like Dr. Viper and the Metallikats. He is a ruthless and sadistic mastermind who would stop at nothing to make certain that his plans are successful, with no moral scruples. Dark Kat is also exceptionally crafty, as when Razor searched to cut the bomb's red wire, he cursed when he found that every wire in Dark KAt's explosive was colored red.



The Creeplings are small, pink Gremlin-like creatures and Dark Kat's principal henchmen. While not as strong as their master, and nowhere near as intelligent, they are unerringly loyal and obedient to Dark Kat, extremely vicious, and tend to overwhelm opponents with sheer force of numbers.

Hard Drive

Originally a petty thief who robbed ATMs, when Hard Drive acquired a piece of equipment called the Surge Coat, he became capable of turning himself into electricity and manipulating electronic devices, and became a mercenary criminal. While he originally planned to steal and sell military secrets, his plan went sour thanks to the SWAT Kats, and he was imprisoned inside a missile. After this failure, Dark Kat broke him out, and under the mastermind's instruction, he hijacked the Turbokat and caused destruction to ruin the SWAT Kats' reputation. After this plan was thwarted, Hard Drive and Dark Kat went their separate ways, and Hard Drive no longer operates under Dark Kat's command.


  • Dark Kat is the second villain to wear a cloak hood in the series, the first is the Pastmaster.
  • Dark Kat is one of the only characters not based on a Marvel and DC Comic villain.
