Agent Superball

Agent Superball is a supporting character in Telltale's episodic series.

Character Detail

He was first introduced in Abe Lincoln Must Die!, guarding the doors of the White House as part of the Secret Service. His unfortunate taste in employers and subsequent misguided loyalty to said employers make him repeatedly obstruct Sam and Max's path (particularly when that path goes through a door), happily working for the likes of Chuckles, Hugh Bliss and even Jurgen. Despite this, however, he does like Sam and Max to some extent and helps them with their case during The Devil's Playhouse. In The City That Dares Not Sleep, he shows faith in Sam being able to restore Max to normal before resorting to nuclear methods. He also displays genuine grief by running out of a room crying when it's concluded that Max can't be revived.

In Chariots of the Dogs he is seen using amnesia-inducing sunglasses, similar to the fictional "neuralizers" of the Men In Black, to keep the existence of time travel secret on behalf of some unknown employer. Superball is married and has a son (Superball Jr.) who is starting first grade. He also looks suspiciously like the IRS agents in "Day of the Tentacle".

He is apparently a very capable singer and dancer, as seen in Good For You (Good For Me). His codename refers to the fact that he is a bouncer. Though he almost always speaks in a stern monotone voice and in a rigid manner, he does occasionally display some emotion publicly. One example is in Bright Side of the Moon, when he talks about Hugh Bliss' Blister of Tranquility. Another is in The City That Dares Not Sleep, when he bursts into genuine tears of grief and runs out of the room, as mentioned earlier.

  • The only thing that makes him happy is if America ever goes to war.
  • In Night of the Raving Dead, whenever his name is mentioned, lightning strikes and a horse's whinny can be heard. This is similar to Frau Blücher from Young Frankenstein.
  • Agent Superball was a bouncer back in the 60s
  • According to the Nutrispecs, Superball is comprised of 20% mystery and 80% sheer awesome. Max notes that that's down 10% from last season[1].
