In A Clockwork Syringe, he reveals his identity, as well as his ability to communicate with the player through the use of the Summoning skill. He reveals that he plans to exact revenge on the player for the prison incident, upon which players may choose to claim that their unorthodox method of arriving at the island (through the use of a Cannonball barrel-boat) as a "gesture" for making up for the player's "atonement". Either way, players ultimately enlist his aid to destroy several barrelchests guarding Bloodsplatter Isle; using the Summoning skill, players control the Baron in flight and drop bombs on the barrelchests. He is not seen again afterwards.
- The Baron's name is derived from "crapping on hat", alluding to the fact that seagulls are known to defecate on people's hats.
- Baron von Hattenkrapper's name is also likely a reference to the character Baron von Trapp from the musical The Sound of Music.
