What?! Have you no honour?! No dignity?! Actions like this tarnish the Toppat name! Men, is this what really what we want out of a leader? He barged in here, took control of the Toppat Clan for himself! He's not worthy of being our leader! I say we throw him overboard! Who's with me?!
― Reginald dethroning Henry after finding out that Henry left Ellie behind at the Wall

Reginald Copperbottom ("Reg" for short, also known as the Toppat Leader and Chief by lesser Toppats), is the current leader of the Toppat Clan and a major antagonist in the Henry Stickmin series.

He was a Toppat of unknown rank until eventually dethroning Terrence Suave, and acquired his top hat and placed it on top of his (inspired by former Toppat leader Sir Wilford IV). As a leader, Reginald has led the clan and organized crimes throughout the world, and became close friends with his right-hand man. Unlike the previous leader of the Toppat Clan, he genuinely wants the best for the clan, even if it means making some major sacrifices.

In most of his appearances, he is either the current leader of the Toppat Clan, or (in pathways following "Rapidly Promoted Executive") the second in command to Henry Stickmin (with the exception of Toppat Civil Warfare and Revenged, in which he retakes leadership and shortly dies).


Reginald appears as the main antagonist of Infiltrating the Airship, the tertiary antagonist of Fleeing the Complex, and the overall main antagonist of Completing the Mission.

In Infiltrating the Airship, he appears as the main antagonist of Relentless Bounty Hunter and Pure Blooded Thief, the unseen main antagonist of Government Supported Private Investigator, and the main antagonist turned deuteragonist of Rapidly Promoted Executive.

In Fleeing the Complex, he appears as the deuteragonist turned main antagonist of The Betrayed.

In Completing the Mission, he appears as the main antagonist of Jewel Baron, Stickmin Space Resort, and Revenged, the deuteragonist of Toppat King and Toppat 4 Life, the tritagonist of Toppat Recruits, the secondary antagonist of Toppat Civil Warfare and Pardoned Pals, and the unseen overarching antagonist of Free Man and Capital Gains.


  • Infiltrating the Airship: The current leader of the Toppat Clan. He wears the hat of the previously dethroned leader.
  • Fleeing the Complex: Seems he's been managing the Toppats in Henry's absence. He'll have to go back to being second soon.
  • Completing the Mission: Being the leader of the Toppat Clan is something he takes a lot of pride in.



Reginald wears black gloves, black shoes, and two top hats, the upper of which (the darker hat) was from the previous leader. Of the two hats, the bottom one (his original top hat) is a lighter shade of grey. He also has a brown English mustache and a golden chain necklace in the shape of a dollar symbol studded with diamonds.


I gotcha Henry. You know… I could drop you right now and nobody would know… But why would I do that? I saw you out there! You put yourself on the line to save the Toppat Clan. You’ve truly earned my respect. I can’t think of a better person to lead us.
― Reginald after saving Henry, shortly pondering on the possibility of retaking the title of leader

Reginald displays an overall coward like persona, relying on opportunity and betrayal rather than direct combat to achieve his ends. For example, he betrays and "kills" Henry only when Henry fails him. He also displays this tendency in the Toppat King pathway, as although he does not ultimately drop Henry and reclaim his position out of respect for his dedication to the Toppat Clan, the only time he hints at betraying Henry is when, once again, no one is watching and he has the higher ground. Throughout the Toppat King pathway, in contrast, he is shown to be very nervous around Henry and his authority, even sheepishly telling off Burt Curtis for calling him "chief" in Henry's presence and nervously looking back at Henry. He is also very dependent on Henry as the leader, relying on him to combat the military and even trusting Henry to come back for him after he was captured. In the Toppat Civil Warfare pathway, he is only able to dethrone Henry in the presence of other clan members only by using deceit (of how Henry betrayed Ellie), rather than directly confronting him and disarming him alone. In the Revenged pathway after selecting Drop, he begs Henry not to drop him (despite doing the same to him) and show mercy, only being saved by his parachute and relying on his men to kill Henry in the cockpit.

Reginald genuinely wants the best for the Toppat Clan, even if it means making some personal sacrifices - and genuinely respects those that do the same. In Airship, he offers Henry his rank as leader as a last-ditch effort to not leave the Clan without a guide. In two of the endings of Mission, he recognizes that Henry is willing to put his life on the line for the Clan, and accepts Henry as the better leader. He might be a dirty coward, but he clearly cares for his crew and tries his best to make sure of their safety. Most notably in Pure-Blooded Thief where he tells Right Hand Man alongside the rest of the clan to retreat from the war field between them and the government as soon as the Center for Chaos Containment comes in to avoid losing more members instead of chasing after Henry who stole their ruby. Then there's the Executive/Allies route where he tells Ellie and the Right Hand Man to go to the rocket first when the government comes in to ambush them, leaving both himself and Henry to initiate the rocket launch's countdown even at the mercy of the government's helicopter.

Reginald also apparently has little self-defense or offensive technique, only able to kill or disable Henry when he has a significant advantage (ex. shooting Henry in Revenged only after he turns around, betraying Henry in The Betrayed only after he has his life in his hands). In Infiltrating the Airship in the cannon ball pathway, he runs away from Henry in fear and relies on his Right Hand Man to protect him, and he even attempts to bribe his way out by offering leadership. In Revenged, he is unable to face Henry himself, relying on his Right Hand Man to do his work for him, until he has no other option. Even then, up until the point Henry turns his back and makes himself a target, Reginald is unable to fight back. His gun is immediately disarmed by Henry and he has to resort to asking for mercy.

In Toppat King and all other Rapidly Promoted Executive paths of Completing the Missions, he is initially neutral towards Henry, until he proves his worth by saving the Toppat Clan, then Reginald agrees to let Henry be leader. These routes also show his more positive qualities, more specifically his loyalty to the Toppat Clan as a whole and how he genuinely wants what is best for the clan. If Henry manages to win Reginald's respect by protecting the Clan from the Government and ensuring the success of the rocket launch, Reginald is convinced that Henry is the right person to lead the Clan to greatness, openly praises him for his dedication, and accepts his leadership gracefully without any betrayal, unlike in the Betrayed ending where Henry has NOT done anything to prove himself worthy of leadership.

He's also rather impatient and easily not trusting, as he is willing to reclaim the leader position from Henry whenever he gets the chance, ignoring that Henry can be a responsible and protective leader to the clan if given the chance. This trait would cause the fall of the Toppat Clan in one path.

In the Jewel Baron path, Reginald is shown to wrathful and envious as he's desperate to stop Henry from stealing the Norwegian Emerald, as he doesn't want to lose another large jewel to him, to the point of firing his clan's strongest weapon at Henry that can atomize anything. This behavior ends up destroying the Toppat Clan in the process.

In the Betrayed and Revenged paths, Reginald reveals his sadistic side, which is shown when he smiles when about to drop Henry to his death and when he laughs after he shot him.

Seeing as he is cowardly, weak and impatient, it's strange how he ended up as the Toppat Leader in the first place. However, it might be because he is a high ranking member and someone who only wants best for the Clan.


Henry Stickmin

Henry and Reginald's relationship varies between pathways. Sometimes they like each other, but most of the time, they hate each other.

In his first two games, he didn't particularly like Henry and seemed to have only given him control over the Toppat Clan as a means of self-preservation. This is why he leaps at the chance to kill him in The Betrayed route.

However, in the Toppat 4 Life and Toppat King routes, he sees how much effort Henry is willing to exert for the sake of the Toppat Clan, and so when he finds himself in a similar situation to The Betrayed ending on the latter route, Reginald not only helps Henry up, but gives him control of the Toppat Clan in earnest.

At the beginning of the Toppat Civil Warfare route in Mission, he is utterly appalled at hearing that Henry abandoned Ellie back in the Wall, and leads the remaining Toppats in a mutiny against Henry. Though he isn't above betrayal himself, as demonstrated in The Betrayed, Reginald has a past and potential history of violently dealing with selfish, greedy people above him (notably the previous leader Terrence Suave), so it's possible that watching Henry abandon all sensibility like Terrence did only served to rub salt in the wound. It's also possible that he's simply faking it in order to take the opportunity to retake power in the organization.

In the Revenged route, even when he's faced with the complete and utter destruction of everything he's worked for and is about to die in the oncoming crash landing of his ruined airship, Reginald doesn't waste the chance to get one over on Henry before he dies and shoots his cybernetic spine, making sure to drag his mortal enemy down with him. Although he succeeded in guaranteeing Henry's eventual demise, he dies as well.

Charles Calvin

The two don't interact at all, but they are enemies (since they side with completely opposite factions).

Ellie Rose

While their interactions are very small, it is shown that Reginald is very neutral towards Ellie. Most of Reginald and Ellie's interactions takes place with Henry Stickmin as the main pivot point.

In Toppat Civil Warfare, Reginald uses Ellie's hatred towards Henry's action to get Henry kicked from Toppat Clan so he can take leadership again. This is also shown in PP/TR where Reginald's main determinant on Ellie joining the clan are based on Henry's criminal skills and the fact that he stole the ruby. However despite this, Reginald shows a mass amount of respect for Ellie at the end of Toppat Recruits and Toppat King, where Ellie shows her worth and loyalty to the Toppats.

Right Hand Man

Reginald and Right Hand Man don’t just seem to be coworkers, but they’re close friends, as the two trust each other. In ItA’s Relentless Bounty Hunter|RBH/RPE path, Right Hand Man protects Reginald, he takes on Henry by himself just so Reginald can flee safely.

In the Relentless Bounty Hunter|RBH paths of CtM, he wants to hunt down and capture Henry for getting Reginald arrested. Considering that he wanted revenge, it’s clear that they did care about each other. Right Hand Man is also the only person to call Reginald something other than “Chief”, as he calls him Reginald, a shortened version of his real name.

Terrence Suave

Although Terrence is out of the picture and likely dead by the time any of the games take place, it's clear that Reginald didn't like Terrence due to his poor leadership and reckless nature, which ended with Terrence being overthrown by Reginald, with Reginald taking Terrence's hat as a trophy.

See Reginald Copperbottom/Gallery.


  • Running gag: In every "Rapidly Promoted Executive" path, on the first time Reginald sees Henry in "Completing the Mission", the first word he says when he sees him is "Henry!".
  • In the ending screens for the "Rapidly Promoted Executive", he doesn't look happy with Henry in charge of the Toppat Clan, which leads into Fleeing the Complex's The Betrayed ending.
  • He is one of the only 3 Toppat Clan members to appear in 3 games, along with Wilhelm Krieghaus and Thomas Chestershire.
  • In a Developer Commentary, PuffballsUnited confirmed that he was British (though his accent already makes it partially clear).
  • Compared to the other antagonists, He has the most impact due to appearing more than any other important antagonists, and because he's important in Infiltrating the Airship and Fleeing the Complex, as well as most of the paths in Completing the Mission.
  • Ever since Infiltrating the Airship, Reginald has appeared as a main antagonist in at least one pathway of the games.
    • However, the main antagonist of the series is simply up to debate.
  • Despite his role as the main antagonist being determinant, He is the overall Big Bad of the franchise.
  • He is the only main character that wears gloves.
  • He dies in almost every single CtM pathway where he is the leader, except for the Stickmin Space Resort and Toppat Recruits endings.
  • Reginald's age is unknown, but he is heavily implied to be older than Henry because of his long brown mustache and experience leading the clan (most likely around 30-40), and the fact that Henry is 28 during Fleeing the Complex.
