You are not a man!
~ Mingrawn Timbletot rejecting CommanderVideo.

Mingrawn Timbletot is the main antagonist of BIT.TRIP RUNNER, it's sequels BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien and the upcoming Runner3 as well as BIT.TRIP FATE. He is described as "maniacal" and "fiendish" by the narrative of Runner2. He can also be considered as the BIT.TRIP franchise's main antagonist, due to being the only notable character blatantly opposing CommanderVideo.

Despite his statue as the protagonist's nemesis, Timbletot's motives and his feud with CommanderVideo are never explicitly explained.


Mingrawn Timbletot first opposes CommanderVideo at the end of Impetus. He tries to stop him with a huge Crystal machine by creating obstacles in the Commander's path. He is defeated after the commander wrecked his machine and drove off in the background. He is later seen at the rooftop of Triumph, the final level of game. It is implied here that he is the source of the Commander's problems and tries to escape the protagonist's reach. However, with the help of his friends, CommanderVideo puts a stop to the Timbletot's actions. At the end of the credits, CommanderVideo attempts to make peace with his arch-nemesis by befriending him, only to be rejected by Timbletot, proclaiming that he is not a man.

Then, Mingrawn Timbletot tries to get away in the Hypersphere. He tries to get rid of CommanderVideo and his friends by trapping them in a realm between light and matter with a "Reality Unfusion Beam". The attack was blocked by CommanderVideo, trapping him in said realm. The Timbletot then attempts to keep the Commander there forever by guarding the exit of each world. The protagonist however escapes into the BIT.TRIP, rendering Timbletot's efforts null and void.

Annoyed by his multiple defeats, Timbletot actively tries to put a definitive end to CommanderVideo with an endless barrage of minions. His evil actions eventually corrupt and enrage CommanderVideo to the point of setting their eminent fall. He is killed by CommanderVideo in their final confrontation when the Commander tackles him, killing CommanderVideo as well in the process.
