|The Venture Bros. character|
Tag Sale - You're It!

The Guild of Calamitous Intent
He is the various villains to appear in backgrounds and minor cameo roles in various episodes of the Venture Bros.
Little about his background, not even his official name, was given until the Season 7 episode Arrears in Science, where he was shown to be one of the conspirators to engage in the Guild-unsanctioned infiltration and attempted hijacking of Gargantua 1 (which turned into the Movie Night massacre.)
His inhuman physiology allowed him to escape death when Vendata (apparently) opened the cargo bay doors, but Hate-Bit along with the rest of the conspirators would likely have faced execution had the Sovereign not decided to take advantage of the situation to instigate the Pyramid Wars of 1987.
Notes and Trivia
- In the creator commentary for the season 1 episode Tag Sale - You're It!, Hate-Bit is referred to only as "Computer Head". In that commentary, it stated that he was inspired by an old youtube video created by Eric Fensler. The video was a number of parody G.I Joe public safety announcements with redubbed voices. It was the "I'm a computer!" line that inspired the character. Storyboard artist Jon Roscetti confirms that the informal name for the character among the production and animation staff was, appropriately, "Ima Computah".
