The Collector is the main antagonist from the first game in the LittleBigPlanet series. He could be seen throughout the entire game hiding and spying on the player or stealing the creations from some worlds.
The Collector is a small, menacing, envious character who is determined to kidnap other Creator Curators and their friends and become the ruler of the LittleBigPlanet. It can be assumed that he used to be a peaceful Curator because nothing like this happened before, but his loneliness and envy made him crave dominance over the planet and create dangerous machines and strongholds. For the majority of the story mode, The Collector is Egotistacal and treats everybody like he's superior than them. He is very confident to his machines and dosen't care about the well-being of others. The Collector is seen kidnapping characters when Sackthing is on their world, making his role clear to the player.

He kidnaps all the Curator Creators, and eventually had all of them captured and locked inside cages in his base. But they all get rescued by the player before he talks with the Collector. The Collector tries to defeat the sackperson but only gets cornered with his robotic armor beyond repair. Then he openly tells that the only reason he stole the Creations is because he has no friends in the Community . The King then suggests that the rest of the LittleBigPlanet community can be his friends. The Collector agrees and ends his evil ways there.
