|“||Sentient programs. They can move in and out of any software still hardwired to the system. That means that anyone we haven't unplugged...is potentially an Agent. Inside the Matrix, they are everyone...and they are no one.||„|
|~ Morpheus describing the Agents to Neo|
Programs tasked with protecting the integrity of The Matrix and eliminating threats to it, such as anything that could potentially reveal the truth of its nature to its inhabitants, Morpheus describes Agents as "everyone and no one." Often working in trios, they are somewhat omnipresent within the Matrix, and can take control over any human still connected to the system (a Bluepill). Agents are also tasked with deleting obsolete programs, as revealed with the Keymaker in Reloaded.
By the time of The Matrix Revolutions, Smith had made everyone connected to the Matrix a copy of himself, so Agents seemed to have disappeared.
