Botfinder General chathead

Mathew Hopscotch, known as the Botfinder General, is the judge of guilty bots at Botany Bay in charge of sentencing third-time-offending bot accounts to a player-decided doom. The only way to reach Botany Bay is to be teleported by the General's loyal Trial Announcers, who announce when a bot is held on trial. He gives players in Botany Bay choices on how the bot will be killed. The choices are: death by crushing; death by swallowing; and death by deity. After the bot account receives its punishment from the general, it will be permanently banned.


  • His name and occupation is a reference to the real-life Matthew Hopkins, who was an English witchhunter known as the the Witchfinder General.
