Jake is the main protagonist of the HACKED series. Jake appears to be a human with brown hair and blue eyes. He is commonly seen wearing a grey hoodie, which he claims can keep him warm throughout any cold, and black/navy blue pants. He is also randomly seen with a red (or, on occasion, brown) leaf in his hair. Jake often breaks the fourth wall in the series, although this may be due to the fact that he was dragged into "The Game". Jake was also the main protagonist in the predecessor to HACKED, Game Freak.

Jake is also one of the Twelve: a group of AI's living inside of a computer program, that can jump through programs at will. He is the ninth Twelfth, referencing his birth date of September 1, and has both the normal telekinetic and hacking prowess, but also the command over electricity. Jake is based off of NV Industries co-founder Jacob Nerith.

Physical Appearance


Jake is known for his courageous, nice and caring attitude, but is often sarcastic and prefers to be alone. Jake likes to read, and, as such, has a lengthy vocabulary and an over-active imagination. Jake can also be quite lazy, preferring to do the simplest of tasks, though likes the thrill of adventure. Jake is also quiet and humble, who cares more for others instead of himself, as he can take criticism and people mocking him, though will not dish it out, as he cares for their feelings. Jake also overthinks most problems, coming up with complicated solutions for even the smallest of challenges.

Game artwork


Hyper Mode


  • The leaf in Jake's hair is supposed to be a symbol of rebellion; similar to the Mockingjay Pin from the Hunger Games trilogy.
    • In addition, the fact that it is red could be a reference to the red maple leaf in the Canadian flag.
    • Leaves have also become integral parts of other Existence Software franchises, as, for example, Blacklight has a similar leaf in his hat.
