In the OVA, McDougal masks his true personality with his young appearance. He is actually quite sinister and thinks of himself as a god, his ultimate goal was to gain control over the Ark and use it to recreate the world as he saw fit. His first step to achieve this was to kill off all of humanity with the Ark's weather-controlling capabilities. He was defeated by Yu, but not killed, so he committed suicide by activating Noah's Ark self-destruct mode.

He is also an expert combat knife user, since he prefers to toss them by throwing them at his targets. Humming Bat was also ruthless when he executed several of his research staff member with his pistol and combat knife after discovering the powers of the Megiddo Flame.

Adolf Hitler (アドルフ・ヒトラー Adorufu Hitoraa ) — Unlike the real Adolf Hitler, the Spriggan interpretation explains that he had two split personalities; one was a peaceful one and the other one was the one that the entire world knew him for.
