Matt (full first name Matthew, sometimes nicknamed "Matty”) is one of the protagonists of Cyberchase, and one of the four main members of the CyberSquad alongside Digit, Inez, and Jackie. He is an 11-year-old boy who is interested in sports and Greek mythology. He lives on a family farm on Earth. He wears a backpack full of helpful objects into Cyberspace.

Personality

Matt aspires to be a home run leader and has a deep interest in Greek mythology[2], which proves especially helpful on the cybersite Mount Olympus[3]. Other sports-related interests include riding his skateboard, playing baseball, and rock climbing, according to Cyberchase Online[citation needed].

Matt's pet peeve is waiting, and is thus prone to making impulsive decisions. Playing with his yo-yo helps him think through problems.

Matt's favorite foods are pizza and pancakes. His favorite book is Redwall by Brian Jacques. His favorite musician is Will Smith. His favorite movie is Star Wars.[4]

Physical appearance

Matt has fair skin and bright orange hair. He wears a bright long-sleeved lime turtleneck, a red backpack, light blue jeans, and red hi-tops with white soles.

In "Clock Like an Egyptian", Matt is shown wearing a watch.

Relationships

Digit

Matt and Digit are close friends. With Digit, Matt can be able to use tools when he needs to when he is in situations, just like Jackie & Inez would[citation needed].

Inez

Matt and Inez are close friends, and Inez treats him protectively[5]. Matt often teases Inez by calling her "Nezzie", to her chagrin, and she sometimes reciprocates by calling him "Matthew". He treats her like a sister/very close friend

Jackie

Matt and Jackie arguing in "True Colors"

Matt and Jackie are close friends. However, he often teases her by calling her a drama queen[6], and she seems to take his teasing more personally than Inez does. The Crab Prince has suggested that Matt only teases Jackie because he likes her.[7]

Slider

Matt is jealous of Slider because Inez and Jackie usually pay more attention to him. However, he seems to have forgiven Slider, as they haven't argued since "Team Spirit".

Shari Spotter

Matt and Shari Spotter seem to have crushes on each other, making Inez and Jackie jealous[8]. He is not as close to her as he is with the girls and is for the most part oblivious to the fact that she likes him.
