HitTheTarget98 (often shortened to Hit the Target) is a re-occurring character and the main antagonist inside of Stampy's Lovely World. Despite his now-infamous stereotype of being an antagonistic villain, he was introduced to the series in episode 16 as a regular Minecraft Helper. It happened somewhat by accident.

He has a YouTube account like HauntedPurpose, Finball's arch-nemesis. His real name is Thomas Kennedy-Lyons and he lives in Dublin, Ireland.

It was only when his hidden base was found that the truth about Hit The Target would be revealed.


As a result of being the main antagonist of the Lovely World series, Hit the Target is represented as a mean, cunning character. Over his various appearances in the series, he is usually shown to be coming up with various schemes to thwart Stampy so that he can steal his dogs and rule over the Lovely World.


Hit the Target's skin in his earliest appearances.

In his early appearances, his skin before was the Tuxedo Steve skin. In later episodes where he was shown to be a villain, his skin was changed completely, now being General Akamoto from Skulls of the Shogun.

History and appearances

My Lovely Tower

At the start of the video, Hit the Target builds his own Lava Room. Later, he refuses to go to bed and writes a sign next to Stampy that says: "loser". The next day, he briefly helps Ank and Agent Cal build a bridge to the spawn area. Then he returns to the Lava Room. 'BALLS' leave signs for Stampy. The signs tell him to sacrifice leather and feathers to Snowy the Dog. Throughout the video, Stampy is building his tower

Inspiration Room

This was Hit The Target's 2nd and last appearance as an actual helper. He helps Stampy build the Inspiration Room. When Guilty Bark gets killed by a zombie, Stampy blames Hit the Target, saying that he is bad.

Unexpected Drama

During Unexpected Drama, he wants to take over the world but Bubbachub informs Stampy. He, together with his helpers and dogs Tikka, Oreo and Lucky, they try to attack Hit the Target while he tries to take them all out. Stampy successfully kills Hit the Target after a chase, but not without causing Lucky's death. BreadStick also died from many of Hit the Target's arrow shots.

Lovely Waterfall

After the episode "Unexpected Drama", a Hit the Target ghost appeared in certain occasions.

As Stampy headed to sleep after he built a portion of his waterfall, he dreams of a super flat world containing cake. As he was wondering why he was there, Hit the Target shot Stampy with an arrow, causing him to wake up. Stampy then saw an arrow laying on his bed as he woke up.


After "Lovely Waterfall", the Hit the Target ghost continued to show up in certain occasions, including its appearance in the special episode The Show Must Go On, which prompted the play to bring down its curtains.

Stampy goes to the Nether to gather up supplies for his Nether Wart Farm. He finds Hit the Target's Nether Fortress. Hit the Target tells Stampy he was trying to protect Stampy's dogs from being killed. Hit The Target becomes Stampy's friend and they share a cake. Stampy kills Hit The Target (who was a ghost) to return him to life. Stampy takes him to his Lovely World but he didn't appear as an assistant in future videos, meaning Hit the Target tricked Stampy to bring back him to life to plot more attacks on Stampy and to steal his dogs.


He was briefly seen pushing one of his dogs when Stampy viewed the footage from one of his security cameras.

The First Cake

Stampy bakes the first cake in Stampy's Hot Buns, then goes on a search for his dogs. Barnaby, the only dog left in his Dog House, 'sniffs' the dogs out and Stampy then realizes Hit the Target stole them. Hit the Target nearly kills Stampy but the Stampy from the future saves Stampy.

Cat to the Future

After Stampy returned to the Lovely World 5 million years later, he saw Hit the Target guarding all his dogs and another Stampy who was inside a trap. He then realized that he was the future Stampy from “The First Cake” that saved the other Stampy and his dogs. He charged into Hit the Target, and went on a chase which ended up being at Hit the Target's house. Stampy successfully trapped him, and he ordered Hit the Target to surrender everything he had, and he led Hit the Target to be trapped by himself. After Stampy looked away from Hit the Target,He disappeared quickly, leaving Stampy clueless to where Hit the Target escaped.

Sinking Feeling

Stampy and Lee were building the Raindrops ride in his funland. After playing a short incomplete version of the game, they go pick a spot to have the rainbow at the end of the game and spot a spooky red and black ship lurking in the water. It turned out it belongs to Hit The Target, so Stampy and Lee go to the SS Stumpy to fight him. They sail the SS Stumpy to Hit The Target's boat. A short arrow battle began as they were next to each other, until Hit The Target's ship starts releasing arrows to SS Stumpy by a mechanism. Stampy decided to try to summon the kraken. He said the magic words and throws an ink sac into the water. When the kraken awoken, it turned out to be one of Stampy's helpers iBallisticSquid (I bet squid does'nt know what a kraken is XD). He makes the plan to go onto Hit The Target's boat. They surround him and force him to drop his weapons and make him walk the plank. The video ends with Stampy, Lee, and Squid burning down Hit The Target's ship's sails and blowing up the rest of the ship with TNT.

Ocean Adventure

In this video, Stampy found out that Hit the Target kidnapped his cat Mittens in a cage at his underground base. He realized that he survived the plank and set up an underground base. He freed themselves out, and chased Hit the Target again. He somewhat disappeared for unknown reasons.

Clone Calamity

Stampy and Lee were building the Pretty Kitty spa when he spotted Hit the Target (which was a clone) pushing one of his dogs. They chased him, and defeated. They then saw another Hit the Target attacking them, which made Stampy realized that he used his cloning contraption that he built not a while ago. They spotted more Hit the Targets, and to kill all of them. Lee cloned himself to help defeat them. Unfortunately, Lee clone died. At the end, he escaped and sadly the contraption was destroyed.

Fight In Flight

The previous episodes show a hot air balloon appearing on certain instances.

Stampy and Lee were building the Beat the Heat Fire Station when Stampy had to go back to his house to get some black wool. While he was on his way, he just saw his dogs around, even on treetops. He now found out that Hit the Target was piloting the hot air balloon the viewers noticed. He rode on his Hot Air Balloon to defeat him. They fought the medieval way, but when he fell down, he was rescued by a familiar UFO that just appeared in the sky. After the fight, he went down to rescue Barnaby.

Ghost Stories

He was seen on the end of the video with the Lunar Friends, where they apparently teamed up for something.

Christmas Rescue

He appeared again when Stampy opened the third gift. The first two gifts were an arrow and a TNT, which he thought Choo Choo and IBallisticSquid gave it to him. He charged into Hit the Target, and later found Lee trapped inside a cage while baking cakes. Stampy freed him and the Lunar Friends came in to join the fight. They trapped him, and gave a bow to him to fight Hit the Targer. Another chase happened, but once again, he escaped. The Lunar Friends also mention that they were tricked by Hit the Target.

Egg Hunt

He returns in this interactive episode, when Stampy and Lee found out that there are doggy statues inside the Dog House to trick him, and thus, they were all gone except for Barnaby. They saw red and black flags in the Music Tower. He found out that Hit the Target kidnapped them and taken there. They all went there and good thing they're all safe. They found and chased him to the Hotel of Dreams where he set up loads of TNT to blow the building up. Hit the Target was about to set off the bomb, but fortunately the Easter Bunny showed up and removed the wiring. Stampy was distracted because of him, and once again, Hit the Target escaped.

Sleepy Stampy

After Stampy got gold to make clocks for his new shop, he suddenly found a random cake. He ate it, not knowing that it has a potion effect for him to sleep. As he slept, Hit the Target took him to his new fortress, and tried to drown him. However, Stampy didn't drown, as he used the bucket inside the dispenser to bring himself up. They got into a chase but Hit the Target rode a boat. Stampy tried to hit him with a long-range shot from his arrow, but he escaped once again. Stampy went back to the Dog House and he finds out that they are all safe, except for Barnaby. He goes back to the build site to find Barnaby, but he is missing; he was maybe kidnapped again by Hit the Target. He goes back to Lee to have a new plan for finding him.

Hot Spot

The previous episodes show that piles of dirt had appeared in sight as Stampy walks to his Dog House.

While Stampy was picking a dog for that episode, he found a ladder to an underground path inside the doggy hole. He went there while Lee guarded the Dog House for security. Stampy then founded a long, dark tunnel which then leads back to the fortress. He then goes up to a ladder, leading to a room where Barnaby currently is, but he was locked inside a cage surrounding with lava. He then spotted Hit the Target while going back up the ladder when he accidentally fell. Hit the Target tries to put lava on the ladder, but Stampy goes up fast and safe to the cage room. He then goes back up again and he cannot make it on the other side because dispensers are shooting arrows at him while Hit the Target managed to escape. He managed to pass it, but Hit the Target fell down into the room and got down the ladder. Before Stampy goes to him, he escaped Barnaby and the two carefully go down the ladder. They then go through the tunnel again, removing all the fire along the way. They managed to get back to the Dog House, but he spotted Hit the Target outside that he was setting fire to Stampy's House. He turned the fire alarm on, and Lee went back to Stampy with his firefighter hat in. He also brought one for Stampy's along with buckets of water. They then managed to water out the fire. Stampy then realized that by making the front of the house on fire, Hit the Target managed to escape again. The starting hallway of the house and the Enchanting Room were destroyed by the fire, but he repaired it. The most important thing was the house and all of the dogs were safe, especially Barnaby.


In the 3rd nightmare, Stampy was looking for his missing dogs and ended up finding them in a line. After that, another Stampy cat was attacking him but Stampy was actually Hit the Target.

Friends and Foes

Hit the Target appeared in the fortress and he revealed his partner Veeva Dash who was one of Stampy's helpers. They unleashed the Wither and became invisible afterward thanks to an invisibility potion. Stampy and the new player (later revealed to be William Beaver) had managed to defeat it but both villains had already escaped by the time.

Evil Plan

Stampy thought Hit the Target and Veeva changed the way the Teleporter worked since he was transported into different traps. He saw both of them in the Secret Base with all of his dogs in it where they tried to teleport them into their fortress. However, he broke the teleporter in the fortress, making them unable to teleport themselves there. It ended with a chase where they both escaped after they splashed themselves with a swiftness potion and a slowness potion to Stampy.

Brain Wave

Stampy discovered a Brain Wave Transmitter built at the top of the Lighthouse that Hit the Target and Veeva Dash built to control his helpers' brains to kidnap the dogs for them. He and Polly Reindeer ran back to the machine and Polly altered it so Hit the Target and Veeva Dash would go to the Dog House and steal Stampy's dogs. They dug a pit so they can trap the both of them; however, they returned to normal state since the machine is solar-powered. Polly attacked them with her "Snowballs of Doom", causing them to run away.

Horsing Around

Hit the targets horse

Hit the Target riding on his horse tangled by a lead.

Together, they attempt to bring all of Stampy's dogs to their fortress while Hit the Target was riding a horse. They saw Stampy and Fizzy Elephant, and they had a battle. Veeva Dash poisoned Stampy, causing him to take cover. Fizzy bravely went on a chase to make Veeva Dash attack him. Stampy rode on his horse, Harry, and chased Hit the Target and his horse. It is unknown what happened to Veeva Dash, but Hit the Target escaped with a boat after they were tangled up on the Soggy Sandwich by Fizzy. Stampy and Fizzy untangled the horse, and set him free.

I Can't Win

As Stampy returned to the Fancy Pants with Henry and Hilda, he saw that someone changed the colour flags and the entrance to red and black wool. Stampy thought Hit the Target and Veeva Dash did this, so Stampy ran to their fortress to attack them. Both were inside the fortress while they were preparing for the attack. Stampy managed to hit Hit the Target, but Veeva Dash kept on throwing regeneration potions to him to keep him alive. Stampy took cover after he severely got hurt by the potions; however, Hit the Target chased him, so he decided to jump in the water. Without any idea on what to do to stop them, he dug straight ahead while Hit the Target continued to chase him. He ended up in a cave, but he managed to get out.

As both Stampy and Hit the Target got out of the cave, Veeva Dash joined in and they both chased Stampy; however, as they ran back to the Fancy Pants restaurant, Stampy made his dogs attack both of them. They lost the battle and ran away. Stampy then ran to the bank and it was revealed that they broke inside and stole all the diamonds after he found a bunch of them inside a chest back at their fortress.

Coffee Cup

The previous episodes before this show random bubbles at certain instances, presuming that someone had an invisibility potion.

Together, they attempt to bring all of Stampy's dogs to their fortress while being invisible. As Stampy went back to the Dog House, he thought that Hit the Target was the person he was chasing. Along the way, Veeva Dash splashed him with a slowness potion, and while she was trapped inside the gigantic cup, she revealed herself. Hit the Target came and knocked Stampy inside the cup, trapping him with Veeva Dash. She splashed a fire resistance potion to herself to escape, but Stampy got close to her and gained the potion powers and escape too. Veeva Dash then splashes an invisibility potion to herself and then to Hit the Target, Mittens, and some of the dogs. However, with the help of Fizzy Elephant, he threw cookies around the area to help Stampy track down both of them. Both of them lost the battle and ran back to their fortress.


In the previous videos before this, a ship resembling a satellite was flying in the sky.

As soon as Stampy and Polly Reindeer finished building Polly's House, a red beam suddenly shot and destroyed her home. Stampy realized that this must have been a plan of Hit the Target and Veeva Dash to destroy his Lovely World. Stampy followed the laser ship when the red beam fired down and another place was destroyed. Stampy found no damage inside the Dog House, but found Squid's Room destroyed. He used his blocks to climb up to the laser ship, and found Hit the Target controlling the laser ship. They had a battle against each other, then Hit the Target jumped down. Stampy saw the opportunity to use the laser ship and destroy their fortress. He saw both Hit the Target and Veeva Dash running back to the fortress, so he went first and fired down the beam to destroy the fortress. He then jumped down to see the damage, but he was spotted by the duo. After a short fight together against him, they lost the battle and ran away.

Gate Crashers

Together, they kidnapped Stampy's Minecraft Helpers while Stampy had his go on the elephant mini-game. Veeva Dash dressed up as William Beaver in his costume and led Stampy to their newly built fortress. She quickly escaped as Stampy got trapped inside the cage, and placed the costume that she wore in an armor stand to trick him that he caught her. Stampy managed to escape, but he was tricked by Veeva Dash. He ran back to Town to find his helpers, and he saw them trapped inside a cobblestone room guarded by Hit the Target. Since he had the costumes that Veeva Dash wore, he wore them to dress up as her and talked to Hit the Target; however, the real Veeva Dash appeared and together, they attacked him. She poisoned him, causing him to take cover. Stampy managed to find a pickaxe from one of his chests. He distracted the duo with a shot of an arrow to Stampy's Hot Buns, and he broke the trap to let his helpers escape. The four attacked the duo as they ran back to their fortress.


In previous episodes, sometimes time would randomly rewind, and at the time Stampy didn't know why.

In Stampy's 500th episode, he goes around his world. When he gets to his emergency igloo, Hit The Target suddenly shows up. Stampy kills him but Barnaby is taken out. Time suddenly rewinds to before Stampy killed Hit the Target. Stampy was suspicious on those time rewinds, so he sneaked into their fortress, only to discover a machine controlled by Veeva Dash that could control time. To stop them, Stampy paused time and reverted the time to when Hit the Target and Veeva Dash were asleep. He used his pickaxe to destroy the machine, but got glitched in time and reverted the time to when Stampy began the video. He goes and decides to focus on good things for his 500th video and goes through his town and looks back on the buildings in his town and Funland.

Saving The World

In the previous episodes, there were strange machines that let Stampy cut his voice.

As Stampy toured the Lovely Inc. skyscraper for the viewers, his voice cut off. He continued going up to see what's going on and Hit the Target appeared inside his room. Hit the Target finally shared his thoughts on Stampy after a long time thanks to the Remote Mind Vocalizers made by Veeva Dash. He thinks that Stampy does control everything in his world without any distraction and used his slaves to do everything he wanted. His mission was to "save" the world, so he wanted to steal his dogs to finally create a dog army. If Stampy killed him, he would lose his voice forever. He then tasked Stampy to take his dogs and meet him again in the lobby.

Stampy got his voice back again, and he needed to think of a clever plan to stop him. He took all the dogs and met with Hit the Target downstairs. Stampy cut out his voice and Hit the Target spoke again. Then they all left the skyscraper. He activated the rest of the Remotes along the way as they walked to his fortress.

Along the way, they saw Fizzy Elephant playing and Hit the Target said that he was not evil after all. Stampy deactivated one of the Remotes and convinces Fizzy that Hit wanted to make an evil plan. Hit turned it on again, keeping Fizzy distracted. Stampy turned it off, and William Beaver and Polly Reindeer came to see what was happening. They all attacked Hit, making him run away.

They were all successful, and the helpers turned off the Remotes.

I Lost and Hero Helpers

As Stampy steered his helicopter near their fortress, he saw Hit the Target activating a cannon that was used to shoot the helicopter. Hit the Target threatened him with his bow, and led him to an elaborate trap: If he tried to escape, a tripwire would set up a piston to push Barnaby into a pit of lava, killing him. If Stampy tried to find another way out, he would be burned by the lava. He accepted defeat.

In the following episode, Hero Helpers, his helpers built a plan to trap Hit the Target and rescue Stampy. Meanwhile, Hit the Target came back and threatened him to shoot him with an arrow and he said that he was not afraid, but then Hit the Target threatened to do so with Barnaby, which got Stampy to stop his talking. Later, Hit the Target tempted Stampy for food with a steak, but ate it in front of him, much to his dismay. Later, when they heard fireworks, Hit the Target came out and followed them, ending up falling down the trap set up by Stampy's helpers. They then came to rescue him. They destroyed the contraption. Stampy saved Barnaby, and he destroyed the cannon. However, as they came back to the trap, they found that Hit the Target escaped by swimming up the water. He also left a note saying: "This is not over. We will free this world."


In Parkour Race, Polly Reindeer vanished throughout the video and she "re-appeared" towards the end of it. The new Polly had a different personality, and this was spotted by the viewers.

Hit the Target and Veeva Dash climbed up to the roof of the new fast food restaurant that Stampy was currently building and poured lava into it. They were later seen by Stampy and he seeked refuge. They were seen again when they captured Stampy in their fortress. Stampy mind-controlled the Polly-Bot, so it attacked the evil duo, causing them to run away.

Uninvited Guests

Hit the Target and Veeva Dash created two robots of theirs that would fool Stampy. The robots sat down at a table with a cake, thinking they want truce with Stampy. The robots, however, were destroyed as they acted strangely and smashed the face of the Clock Tower. The real villains then appeared at the Dog House, trapping Stampy. Polly-bot entered the scene and scared the duo once again to run away.


The previous episodes show that a parrot appeared in several occasions.

In the episode, Stampy shocked in horror when he saw all of his dogs were gone. Thinking the evil duo were up to something, he went to their fortress and saw a strange building. When he heard a bark from one of his dogs, he entered the building and got stuck into a platform surrounded by lava. He then saw the re-occurring parrot that made the bark sound. Veeva Dash charged in, but got knocked by a zombie down the platform, also getting stuck with Stampy. As Veeva Dash agreed to help Stampy find Hit the Target and his dogs, they ran back to the Dog House from the fortress, where he was seen doing something suspicious. Stampy attacked him, but he escaped from the scene through the other door. As Stampy found the rest of his dogs, which turned out that they were hiding behind the vending machine, he realized that he used his spy parrot (the bird that was seen few episodes prior) to find out when he was gone, then he would hide the dogs behind the wall of the dog house. Stampy would then find the dogs and then trap him in the middle of the lava so that Hit the Target wouldn't steal all the dogs for good.

Mirror World

Stampy planned to build a field, but he noticed a door surrounded by quartz and glowstone that had been there for a long time. As he entered the door, he was sent to the void where he met Hit The Target (who actually speaks) and a random cat who claimed to be Stampy from another dimension. They appeared so that Stampy could be sent to a mirror world of his own, and Hit the Target and Veeva Dash could finally steal his dogs. Stampy exited the door and appeared in the mirror world, where some things were different such as the helpers, the dogs, and some builds. After meeting with the helpers, He then went to the top of the Clock Tower and thought that he could jump and die so that he could spawn back to his Lovely World. Stampy headed back to his world with his idea. He then met his mirror self, Hit the Target and Veeva Dash, all trying to steal his dogs. Stampy tried to befriend with his mirror self so that they could attack his arch-nemeses, in which he succeeded. His mirror self got killed in seconds when Stampy was battling with his arch-nemeses and later run away.

Behind the scenes

In early episodes, he was introduced as an actual Minecraft player. However, this did not last long, as the user that controlled the player soon quit playing Minecraft. It is now one of Joseph Garrett's friends who acts as Hit the Target.



  • In Crystal Waters, after Hit the Target's ghost is seen (who was in the episode) is burned to death. Some people say Hit the Target was the cause of his death.
  • In Stampy's Halloween Special, Lee dresses him self as Hit the Target. This makes Stampy scared and for a moment, he thought about getting a weapon out. This is repeated in Episode Stampy asks for the ad1n Stampy's other worlds.
  • Hit the Target loves cake. This was proven in Revelation.
  • As said by Stampy himself, Hit the Target is just as bad as Stampy when shooting arrows. This is proven in Ocean Adventure, Sinking Feeling, and Fight In Flight, as he constantly misses Stampy firing arrows.
  • When Hit the Target is about to lose ammo, he uses his dispensers to fight Stampy. This is seen during Sinking Feeling and Fight In Flight.
  • Traditionally, gamertags are always off for battles (except Unexpected Drama).
  • In Episode 228, Stampy named the video Hit The Targets, which confused the fans about Hit the Target appearing in the episode.
  • If you Listen closely in Revelation and Mirror World, you can tell that Hit The Target's voice sounds like Stampy, so It's possible that Stampy could be the one Voicing Him when he and Stampy are not in his World.
