Agents are a group of characters in the The Matrix Trilogy. They behave as anti-virus programs within the Matrix, a computer-generated world. An Agent guards the Matrix from anyone or anything that could reveal the Matrix as a false reality. Agents also hunt down and terminate any rogue programs, such as The Keymaker, which no longer serve a purpose to the overall Machine collective.

Agents are very intimidating. They are all tall men, with greenish-black suits, ties, shoes, sunglasses and clean white shirts that reflect the Men In Black motif. Agents also wear a communication earpiece to inform them of any disturbances within the system. They carry Magnum Research/Israeli Military Industries Desert Eagle handguns chambered for the extremely powerful .50AE (Action Express) round in shoulder holsters that are concealed beneath their suits. In addition to proficiency in firearms, all Agents are masters of the martial arts and hand-to-hand combat.

Like Zion infiltrators, Agents are aware of the artificial nature of the Matrix and thus have the ability to bend its physical rules, such as being able to leap abnormally long distances. Agents also possess additional superhuman abilities due to their nature as computer programs, to aid them in their job. They can briefly move at speeds fast enough to dodge bullets from a gun if they are sufficiently distant from the gun; a point-blank shot will hit its mark. They can't dodge massive machine gun fire such as that from a Gatling gun, however. Agents also have superhuman strength, they can tear a car's roof off with one hand, and also generate enough power in their punches and kicks to punch through solid concrete. Agents also seem significantly less phased by punches and kicks than a normal human being would be, although a sufficiently strong attack to a vital body area can still stagger them. A superhuman is something exceeding normal human standards. ... The tower of a personal computer (specifically a Power Mac G5). ...

Another advantage of being a program is that the Agents are almost impossible to destroy. They have the ability to take over any host body connected to the Matrix in order to gain physical form. However, when their host body is severely injured or destroyed, they transfer themselves into another host. Such abilities make an Agent practically fearless and unrelenting. Among people working on virtual reality and cyberspace interfaces, an avatar (sometimes AV or av) is an icon or representation of a user in a shared virtual reality. ...

Almost all Zion hovercraft crews jacked into the Matrix who encounter an Agent know to do one thing: run. According to Morpheus, every human that had stood their ground against an Agent in the time before Neo was freed from the Matrix was killed or captured. This was true for Morpheus and Neo in the first movie of the trilogy. Once Neo could harness his abilities as The One, Agents posed no threat to him, and he could defeat a triad of Agents with ease. Morpheus has been fortunate enough to stand against two Agents during the trilogy and live to tell the tale. Fishburne as Morpheus in The Matrix Revolutions Morpheus is the name of a fictional character (played by Laurence Fishburne) in the science fiction film, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions. ... Neo is the name of the central fictional character from the movie The Matrix and its sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. ...

The Agents use very plain, common names to avoid attracting attention to themselves. In The Matrix, the viewer sees Agents Smith, Brown, and Jones. In The Matrix Reloaded, the viewer sees three new Agents with somewhat upgraded abilities: Jackson, Johnson and Thompson. Each triad typically has a leader with a personality that seems more distinct than the others: Agent Smith was far more substantial, emotional, and opinionated than his partners, for example. The Matrix is a film first released in the USA on March 31, 1999, written and directed by the Wachowski brothers (Andy and Larry). ... From www. ... The Matrix Reloaded is the second installment of the Matrix series, written and directed by the Wachowski brothers and released by Warner Bros. ...

A rogue Agent can be a very dangerous program. When Smith is destroyed by Neo at the end of The Matrix, his programming instructs him to return to the Source, the Machine mainframe computer, to be destroyed or stored. However, because of Neo's attack, something changes in Smith that allowed him to defy his programming. The change in Smith also disconnects him from the system, setting him "free" from his duties, in effect. Smith's programming also takes on some of Neo's abilities as The One, such as the ability to withstand dramatic damage. However, since Smith is not in truth a complete autonomous being with the ability to choose a new purpose for himself, Smith becomes sociopathic. The rogue Smith begins to behave like a virus himself, making copy after copy of himself using humans and other programs in the Matrix, all of them with one purpose based on his old Agent programming, now corrupted: Destroy Neo. No one, not even other Agents, were immune to his attacks. The Matrix is a film first released in the USA on March 31, 1999, written and directed by the Wachowski brothers (Andy and Larry). ... Three types of viruses: a bacterial virus, otherwise called a bacteriophage (left center); an animal virus (top right); and a retrovirus (bottom right). ...

The Agents live on in the online multiplayer game, The Matrix Online. With the brokered peace created by Neo at the end of The Matrix Revolutions, Agents are no longer programmed to kill redpills on sight, but guard various areas of the Matrix from the increased activity created by these visitors. The Matrix Online (MxO) is a MMORPG developed by Monolith Productions. ... The Matrix Revolutions is the third film in the Matrix trilogy. ... Spoiler warning: Redpill is a term that describes a human that has been freed from The Matrix, a computer-generated world set at the end of the 20th Century. ...
