Leader of Reformed Toppats (SSR Only):
|Members||see Members section|
We've been having some issues with a group of thieves known as the Toppat Clan. We know they're guilty, we just can't pin them to any crimes.
|― Captain Hubert Galeforce to Henry Stickmin|
The Toppat Clan (also known as the Toppats) is an international criminal organization being the main antagonists for the second half of the Henry Stickmin series.
The Clan appears as the main antagonists of Infiltrating the Airship and almost every pathway of Completing the Mission, with some exceptions depending on which path by a combinations of endings from the two prior games, but always have a guaranteed main role in every single path of CtM, although not all for the same reasons. They are also optional secondary antagonists in Fleeing the Complex.
The Toppat Clan is known for wearing top hats or other hats, hence the clan's name.
Among their ranks, they have a wide variety of criminals, including thieves and burglars, former law enforcement, con artists, corrupt politicians, and even wizards and witches. Various portrait galleries and character bios seen in the games indicate the clan has been around for at the very least several decades.
They have various resources at their disposal, including their Airship, a Train, and a Secret Base in the Dogobogo Jungle. Somehow, they managed to evade capture or be exposed as criminals up until the events of Infiltrating the Airship. They store all of their stolen possessions in large boxes in their airship's cargo hold, which explains how the organization's members have been able to evade arrest for so long.

- Toppat Jeep (Status determinant)
- Reginald Copperbottom - The leader of the clan during Infiltrating the Airship's events. Cowardly, yet pretty big on loyalty and respect. Overthrew the last leader, Terrence Suave. If Henry becomes the leader, he becomes his right hand man, and will either remain that way, get demoted from that position as well and become simply a high-ranking Toppat, or try to take back his position as the leader of the clan.
- Right Hand Man - The second-in-command during the game's events. He's extremely strong, brave and loyal. In the paths of Completing the Mission that follow the endings Rapidly Promoted Executive or Relentless Bounty Hunter, parts of his body have been replaced with cybernetics due to his fight with Henry. If Reginald is absent, The Right Hand Man takes his place, although his name remains "Right Hand Man"
- Sven Svensson - Took over leadership after Reginald and the Right Hand Man disappeared/were arrested during the Government Supported Private Investigator ending. Is the leader in all paths following this ending. If the previous Right Hand Man is the leader, he becomes the RHM's right hand man.
- Henry Stickmin (Determinant) - Can become the leader in the Rapidly Promoted Executive ending after Reginald surrenders the airship to him. He is still the leader in all of the endings following it with only a few exceptions, being The Betrayed and its sequel, Revenged, where he is betrayed by Reginald so he can become the leader again, and in Toppat Civil Warfare where he is dethroned by Reginald after protesting against his leadership because of Ellie telling the clan that Henry betrayed her.
- Ellie Rose (Determinant) - Henry's Right Hand Lady in the Toppat King ending (Rapidly Promoted Executive/Convict Allies route). In the Toppat Civil Warfare ending (Rapidly Promoted Executive/Ghost Inmate route), she can become the leader and declare war against Henry's much smaller faction, creating the Toppat Civil War.
- Dusty - Had one of the longest runs. Sometimes people thought he was dead, because he was so slow.
- Cloudface - Lost his position because people couldn't understand what he was saying because of the beard.
- Reynaldo the Brute - One of the fiercest leaders, he died during combat.
- Jaques Kensington - He was a bit eccentric. Always walked around with a gold deagle.
- Randy Radman - Ran the Toppat Clan through the Party Era. Everything was a blast until they went bankrupt.
- T.R.N.K. - A failed attempt at resurrecting a long dead leader. It didn't took long for him to betray the clan after that. He was presumably killed by the Clan later with Billy G. taking his place.
- Billy G. - Replaced T.R.N.K. as the leader. Despite numerous claims that "he's not my lover", he was quite romantic. He was soon defeated by Sir Wilford IV who took the position of leader after him.
- Sir Wilford IV - He defeated Billy G. to be the leader. Hated incompetence. Remembered as one of the best leaders.
- Terrence Suave - Came straight after Wilford IV. One of the worst leaders, reckless, poor leadership, and launched pointless raids for the thrill. Overthrown by Reginald Copperbottom.
Besides these few, there are many more that we don't know about.
- PuffballsUnited originally created the Toppat Clan for his first animation short Operation Infiltration, but they appeared as circles with arched black and blue top hats instead of how they look now.
- The bio for Eduardo Gioncarlo reveals that usually, the Toppats will search for criminals and ask if they want to join. There are only five known exceptions.
- Gioncarlo himself, a master pickpocket who actively sought out the Toppats and joined them.
- Grunt, someone who randomly showed up and was accepted by the Clan as they weren't gonna turn down a skilled fighter.
- Hat Girl, a possible alien who randomly showed up one day and joined the ranks.
- Henry Stickmin, the protagonist who went rogue on a mission and became the Toppat Leader in the Rapidly Promoted Executive ending and sought out the Toppats along with his friend and partner, Ellie Rose, and joined them Toppat Recruits ending.
- Ellie Rose, the tritagonist who sought out and joined the Clan in the Toppat Recruits ending and willingly joined the Clan in the Toppat King ending.
- Randy Radman's bio: "Ran the Toppat Clan through the 'Party Era'. Things were a blast until they were bankrupt."
