Hank J. Wimbleton is the main protagonist of the Madness Combat series on Newgrounds. He is a mercenary on a mission to destroy the Agency Against Hank Wimbleton.
Due to the ambiguous nature of the series, Hank's motives are not fully shown, and some of his actions, especially ones he takes early on in the series, can be interpreted as villainous. Nevertheless, it becomes increasingly clear over the course of the series that he is the lesser of all of the evils in the whole Nevada, and thus making him not a fully-fledged villain, but somewhat of an anti-hero.
Hank serves as the main protagonist of nearly all entries in the series, except for Madness Combat 8: Inundation, where he's a posthumous character, Madness Combat 9: Aggregation, where he's the tritagonist, and the entire Sanford & Deimos Arc, where he’s a supporting character.
Hank first appears as a regular Grunt, referred to as "Our hero". He is seen chilling beside a tree. The boombox playing the Chicken Dance Remix from another Grunt annoys hank, he then asked the grunt to turn it down but the grunt punched hank in the face which started a fight . After Hank punches the Grunt to the ground, several other grunts rush in and tried to kill Hank along with jebus who was here to assassinate hank.
Jebus is a powerful foe with the ability to revive grunts as Zombies and summon powerful weapons but hank still manages to kill him...or did he?
Hank's next appearance involves him running after the Sheriff. After defeating several Grunts and Tricky, Hank makes it to the Sheriff's room, only to be thrown with a PS4 by Jesus.
Hank is later revived, albeit with a bandage covering his head wound. Hank once again runs his way through the Sheriff's people in a quest to get his Spirit Petal from the Sheriff and Jesus. However, upon noticing Hank's presence, the Sheriff activates the Improbability Drive, distorting reality and causing Grunts and Tricky to fall from the sky.
Hank gets knocked out of the building where the Sheriff is and onto the streets. Thanks to the Improbability Drive, the Sun sprouts a body and hugs Hank, but Hank calms it, plunging Nevada into the hell. Hank later makes his way back to where the Sheriff is. Right before he can kill the Sheriff, Jesus once again throws a PS4 on his head. However, Hank pulls out a shotgun and uses it to defeat both Jesus and the Sheriff.
Hank gets revived again, now with bandages covering the spot where Jesus throw the PS4 on him. Hank crashes a party at Club M. he kills two Zombies guarding the entrance of the building by ramming them with his car. He enters the Club and runs his way through several more grunts, as well as a 1337 agent. Hank later makes it to the dance floor, where Tricky is working as a DJ in the Club.
Hank is again revived through unknown means and sets out to attack an A.A.H.W. facility. Hank kills dozens of 1337 agents before eventually encountering Jesus. Jesus revives several of the agents Hank killed and fights Hank. Hank and Jesus's duel takes them to a cliff. Hank falls off and lands on a ledge below. Jesus sends his zombified agents to kill Hank, but Hank shoots and kills them. Jesus then appears and briefly fights Hank before knocking him to the bottom of the canyon. Hank fights and kills several more 1337 agents, including a few zombified agents until Tricky appears. Tricky attacks Hank and Jesus, having been contracted to kill both of them by the Auditor.
Tricky fights Hank and kills Jesus, tearing off his head. Sanford and Deimos then appear to deliver Hank the Dragon Sword to fight Tricky. Hank duels Tricky, armed with a stop sign, and decapitates him. However, the Improbability Drive revives Tricky and Tricky kills Hank.
Not done playing with Hank just yet, Tricky revives Hank, now with a metal jaw, and leaves him a gun and a note telling him to "do what comes natural." Hank fights his way through many agents and grunts, eventually finding the Improbability Drive. However, the Improbability Drive causes a train to crash through the room. Hank boards the train and fights several 1337 agents before making his way to Tricky. The train crashes, damaging Hank even more. Hank fights Tricky and Tricky kills him. However, Tricky revives Hank once again so they can continue fighting. Hank attacks Tricky with a pipe, and Tricky flees and summons a building. Hank enters the building and kills several grunts. Hank eventually finds Tricky and kills him with a battle ax and a P90 before knocking him off a cliff. However, Tricky's death is registered as invalid and he is revived as Demon Tricky.
Demon Tricky kills Hank, but revives him soon after, giving him a new look. Demon Tricky chases Hank through several buildings, until Hank shoots his head, damaging the Portable Improbability Drive. Hank later encounters a Mag Agent: Torture and kills it with a chainsaw. Demon Tricky later returns, albeit smaller as he had taken out the Portable Improbability Drive and given it to two A.T.P. Engineers to repair. Demon Tricky punches Hank out of the building to where the Engineers are working on the PID. However, Jesus appears, kills the Engineers and Hank, before shooting the Portable Improbability Drive, making Tricky lose his demon form. Jesus then kills Tricky before turning his attention to the Auditor.
Hank's body was later recovered by Sanford and Deimos. Deimos revived.
(Hank uses Deimos' body as a meatshield.)
Hank engages in melee combat with the Auditor while Sanford tries shooting him. The Auditor later blasts Hank's face with black fire and shoots part of his tentacle off, stunning him. The Auditor then turns his attention to Sanford and tries to kill him. However, Hank recovers and grabs the Halo off the Auditor's head. Hank gets zapped by the Halo, causing a hand to grow in place of his tentacle. The Auditor then summons a pillar and retreats into his facility. Hank and Sanford fight their way through many l33t Agents and Engineers, as well as a Mag Agent V4, eventually making it to the roof where the Auditor is. Hank kills several more Agents, Engineers and a second Mag Agent V4 with his . The Auditor then goes to duel Hank and Sanford. Hank damages the Auditor using electrically charged punches, forcing the Auditor to absorb the dead bodies of the Agents and Engineers to heal his wounds. However, one of the dead bodies the Auditor absorbs is the body of Tricky the Clown, the Auditor to become unstable and an energy beam to tear through him. Just before the Auditor explodes, Hank grabs Sanford and the two descend a latter leading off of the roof.
As Hank and Sanford finish climbing down the tower, the Auditor-Tricky fusion begins spreading black pools that spawn out dark skeletal grunt-like creatures to go after him and Sanford, but the pair are able to defeat all of the fusion's unholy minions. The fusion then reveals its true form as a skeletal abomination resembling Demon Tricky and wearing Jesus' halo. After the fusion screams "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANK!" Hank attacks the demonic fusion by repeatedly punching it with his crustacean-like right arm, but the fusion retaliates by punching Hank back and tearing off his right arm before sending him and Sanford to a purgatory-like dimension.
Inside the dimension, Hank and Sanford are confronted by one of the shadowy skeletal grunts from before, only resembling Tricky and with the Halo atop its head. The Tricky grunt summons several A.A.H.W. units to attack Sanford and Hank, but the pair manages to fend all of them off as the Tricky grunt summons a stop sign and retreats through a black pool. As Hank and Sanford become separated as they are making their way through the purgatory, the Auditor appears before Hank and zaps him with dark energy to restore his torn-off arm.
Hank later shows up to attack Tricky as he is shooting at Sanford, snatching his rifle away from him before shooting him with it and causing the halo to fall off as the grunt is knocked off the platform. Hank then reaches for the Halo, but another Tricky grunt obtains it first and punches Hank over to where Sanford is before rotating the platform they are standing on so it tilts sideways, causing them to stand upward on what was previously a sideways platform. The two then make their way to the light pillar through which they can escape the dimension, fighting their way through armored Tricky zombies as well as a Tricky Mag Agent.
The two eventually reach the light pillar, where Tricky is now being attacked by his own minions. Hank punches Tricky into the light pillar, resulting in an explosion that kills Tricky where he and Sanford were simply engulfed in it. Hank and Sanford, either unconscious or lifeless, emerge from black voids emanating from the dead body of the skeletal Tricky as the Auditor appears to claim the Halo once more, having played his opposition into killing each other.
- Hank has killed 605 people in the series, more than all of the other main characters combined, and amounting to around 48% of the series' total kills and deaths.
- Hank has died seven times in the main series. He's been killed three times by Jesus, three times by Tricky, and once by suicide bombing Jesus. His fate at the end of Madness Combat 11 is ambiguous, and may constitute an eight death.
