Hardwire is one of the recurring villains of the KODE KID series. He is Dr. Shadow's primary henchman and Data's doppleganger.
Hardwire is the final boss of the game, and the only boss out of the six that appear in that game who survived. (Aside from ShadowHack, who appears in the next game)
In this game, Hardwire's role is still unknown. However, it is assumed he will try to help ShadowHack in his plan to turn Data into a full robot slave.
