Dr. Benedict Blackwell is the presumed main antagonist in Mighty No. 9. He is the creator of the Xel.


Before the beginning of the game's story, Dr. Blackwell was a respected scientist who created Xel and used it to create advanced robots. His son, following his father's lead, created a robot called Trinity that could absorb Xel and use it in its own structure, but the Blackwell saw the dangers it posed and had it shut down.

Later on, a cyber terrorist attack hit the country and Blackwell was found guilty of the attack until it was found that Gregory Graham was responsible for the attack and Blackwell was the one to stop it until he was framed.

After Blackwell's imprisonment, his son Bill Blackwell left Cherry Dynamics and joined SANDA Technologies to create more robots free of Graham's watch.


  • Dr. Blackwell could be based on Dr. Wily and Dr. Weil from the Mega Man series.
  • His full name was revealed by Gregory Graham in the opening stage (in Japanese).
