The Data Eater is the dominant antagonist of Twipsy, who tends to chase messengers for data packets, in which he sees as delicious snacks.
He is a large, armoured beetle-like creature, with short bladed arms, a black visor with orange eyes and a long snout similar to that of an anteater's. 
While the Data Eater appears in numerous episodes, there are some that describe his struggles as well as his near triumphs.
- His first appearance is in How it Happened, in which he is introduced as the data-hungry predator, chasing cybermessengers and robbing them of their data packages.
- In Albert the Superhero, in which he comes down with an upset stomach from consuming bad data
- In Relic Wanted, in which he finally snatches Albert's fossil from Twipsy, and attempts to consume it himself - he suffers from a belly ache later.
