Napoleon Bonaparte is the bigger bad and a minor antagonist in the 2012 video game Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure and the possible main antagonist of the franchise.

He is a shadowy figure who manipulates the events behind the scenes. He is based on the actual Napoleon from history, however, it is currently unconfirmed if he is Napoleon in person, or another copycat, like his stand-in, Leonard Bonar.


He appears only shortly in the beginning, being resurrected from the dead by Isaac, after his casket had been stolen. For the rest of the story, Leonard Bonar takes his place.

In the end, he is seen on the Eiffel Tower, being informed about Bonar's death by Isaac, who also implies to begin the "next phase" of their plan.


  • Despite only appearing two short times in the game, he can be considered the main antagonist of the series, since a sequel is implied, where, if it comes out, he will appearently be the primary villain.
  • He himself doesn't speak in the game at all.
    • Since Isaac implied that his body isn't competely restored, that could lead to the conclusion, that he isn't even able to speak yet, which would explain why he needed a stand-in.
  • His relation to Isaac can be compared to the one of Leonard Bonar and Jean-François.
