Matt Hargreaves (or simply Matt) is a tritagonist in Eddsworld, who is inspired and voiced by Matt Hargreaves. He is known for having a purple hoodie, green overcoat and ginger hair.
Although he is usually presented as a good character, he appears as a main villain in Eddsworld Halloween Short and many of his alter-egos are villains from other episodes.
He is incredibly arrogant, dishonest, persuasive, and narcissistic, caring only about his looks, and also the mirrors Matt uses to look on his reflection. He is also shown to be the most unintelligent character in the show, although he often uses "smart" words, whose meaning he doesn't know.
Eddsworld Halloween Short
Matt appears as the main protagonist of the episode, as he kills the whole gang in streets. First is Edd who is killed by a sledgehammer while he is on the way home. Another victim is Tom whose top of his head is sliced off with a sword. Eventually, Tord is sliced in half by a sword.
They all are killed by a dark figure in a hood which is later revealed to be Matt. He ticks all the names on his revenge list when suddenly, Ash appears in front of him with a shot gun. Matt runs at him with two knives, but ends up running into Ash's shotgun and getting his mouth caught around the barrel. Ash then shouts "Swallow this" and shoots Matt in the mouth, killing him.
