Moredcai and Rigby attempt to fire lasers at him but he merges himself with his minions and becomes more powerful than he ever was before.

Whatever was left of him was erased from existence by Anti-Pops.
As Internet his only real physical form is his black router like head which has a red flash button and spikes at the top, however he did have a robotic suit which was black with red areas and cube shaped with rectangular arms that had a red tint at the bottom and were detached, his legs were also detached. As Streaming he has a much more humanoid appearance with a body that is transparent yellow with white specks dotted around in it, he also has legs in this form and his router like head is inside the top of his transparent body.
As Internet his main attack method is firing his lasers which instantly vaporise whoever or whatever they hit, his main defensive strategy is creating a firewall which is literally a wall of fire blocking any opponents from attacking him. As Streaming he still uses the laser technique and flight ability but doesn't use the firewall very often, in this form he is also able to fuse himself with his henchmen giving him even more power.
Internet was cold and calculating with no concept of mercy and little concept of emotion, because of this he would easily terminate anything that would get in his way. He took glee in destroying and tormenting his enemies and his allies. He killed those he deemed obsolete or simply because he felt like it (or as he puts it "lolz") he had no mercy for these "obsolete" formats and took pride in his ability to easily stream weak or poorly compressed media to the web. He also viewed TV as an "obsolete/dead" format especially compared to himself. As Streaming his personality was not much different since they are after all the same entity. As Streaming he still regains all of his original personality but is far more expressive and less robotic especially in his voice.
- As Internet he was voiced by Roger Craig Smith who also portrays Thomas/Nikolai a redeemed villain from Regular Show and as Streaming he is voiced by Keith David who also portrays Doctor Facilier, the main antagonist of Disney's "The Princess and The Frog"
- When DVD said to him "have a heart" he responded "404 not found"
- Internet/Streaming is one of the most evil Regular Show villains along with Klorgbane and Garret Bobby Ferguson Jr.
