The Bloodbottler is one of the giants in The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant) and the secondary antagonist of the novel and both films. He is the Fleshlumpeater's right-hand man and the overall smartest of the man-eating giants. Hence his name, he holds a particularly delightful taste for human blood.
In the film
The Bloodbottler is the first major giant to appear in the film. He storms into the BFG's cave, having heard him talking to Sophie. The Bloodbottler correctly assumes he was talking to a "human bean" and demands he give it to him. The BFG gives him the disgusting snozzcumber, telling him it tastes like bones, and when he eats it, the Bloodbotttler trashes the BFG's cave and storms away.
He was later seen with the other giants, harrassing the BFG. When the BFG runs away, the Bloodbottler throws a rock at him. He is eventually caught by the humans and trapped in a huge hole with the other giants.
