Agent Darkbootie is a prominent member of The Swollen Eyeball Network, but also secretly works as a janitor at NASAPlace. Darkbootie is known as the only Swollen Eyeball member to genuinely take Dib seriously, especially in alien matters. His only major appearance was in "Battle of the Planets," where he also becomes the only Swollen Eyeball member other than Dib to appear in person.
Darkbootie worked on repairing an old spaceship meant for monkeys while at his job at NASAPlace. He gave it to Dib in order to pilot the planet Mercury and prevent Zim from taking over Earth while piloting planet Mars. This is his last major role and appearance in the series.
Agent Darkbootie was voiced by John de Lancie, who played the all-powerful Q in Star Trek: The Next Generation and voices Discord in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. When not appearing in silhouette, Darkbootie has a far less intimidating voice, provided by Fred Tatasciore.
He appears again at the beginning of Issue 31, when during a Swollen Eyeball meeting Dib presents his latest discovery, a mutated grackle with a third leg and a round body. He and the other agents seem genuinely impressed by this.
- It's implied that Darkbootie's code name comes from his research into the "butt" located on the dark side of Mercury.
- Due to the fact that he's the Swollen Eyeball member Dib interacts with the most, many fans have interpreted him as the leader of the organization. However, this has never been confirmed in-series.
