The Numbertaker dons a white robe and top hat.
Behaviour and Appearance
He causes trouble by taking numbers, children and "numbers of things"; as numbers themselves, the Numberjacks have to be particularly careful when dealing with him. The sleeves of his long white jacket on either side hide various attachments – a hoover, an automatic picker, a net, a magnet, a long pole, a hook, sometimes using his own hands. He neither speaks in any of his appearances, nor smiles much either.
He sometimes becomes his alter ego, and is the "Numbermaker", causing problems by creating numbers and numbers of things. He has been multiplied twice; on both occasions the multiple versions of him despised each other and all ended up hooving each other up in Into the Teens and Half Time. He is the only meanie that does not talk. He wears a lot of white. He is also the only meanie to be live-action.
