|Also known as||R4gn0r0k|
3rd Street SaintsSRIV
Leader of the Deckers
|Voiced by||Yuri Lowenthal|
- "Don't you get it? I'm God in here."
- — Matt Miller, in his final confrontation with The Protagonist during "http://deckers.die".
- "The thing that's interesting about him is that when he's by himself he thinks that he's god."
- — Steve Jaros, lead writer of Saints Row: The Third
Matt Miller is the leader of the Deckers, and like Phillipe Loren, Killbane, Viola, and Kiki DeWynter a member of The Syndicate. He is an expert in all instances of (cyber) crime such as hacking, and is usually the guy whom the rest of the Syndicate goes to for such instances. Despite the grave threat he poses to the cyber community, Matt is timid and a physical weakling who relies on his intellectual strengths to deal with any adversaries. He speaks with an English accent, presumably from the north of London, and is only 16 years old during Saints Row: The Third. 
Matt Miller has a major obsession for technology, so much in fact that he even incorporates it into his clothing, such as a wrist band on his right arm which features a key pad and screen with a neon blue trim, and various high-tech features on his dark, neon blue, light-up jacket. He is a described Internet god but is socially awkward when out in the open. Matt and his gang are computer geniuses, but in stark contrast to the Luchadores or the Morningstar, they are more subtle in their commitment of (cyber) crime. In addition, all of them (including Matt himself) dress in very much the same way, sporting dark clothing with neon-blue highlights.
Steve Jaros, lead writer of Saints Row: The Third, says, "he's super cocky and kind of obnoxious and is very self-assured in what he does. However, when he's around Killbane or Phillipe, he's like a 15-year-old kid sitting at the big kid table". Matt comes off as a stereotypical internet troll when he's behind technology, but in the open (around other members of the Syndicate), he is very shy and fearful, because of the fact that they could kill him quickly if they wanted to. So under these circumstances he usually acts respectfully by staying mostly silent.
Saints Row: The ThirdEdit
Little information is given about Matt's background. Matt is "the youngest and newest member of the Syndicate", "an extremely talented hacker from England" and was first recruited into the Syndicate because "Phillipe couldn't figure out how to use his cell phone". 
He completely drains the 3rd Street Saints' bank accounts after The Protagonist and Shaundi land in Steelport. After the death of Phillipe Loren, Killbane assumes full control of the Syndicate and Matt voices very little objection, mostly out of fear. After the Saints raid the Morningstar cargo ship and recover hoes, Matt anonymously calls The Protagonist and offers to buy them back. Killbane is enraged by Matt's actions and Matt promises to ask his consent of every decision from that point on. He witnesses Killbane kill Kiki DeWynter with a one-handed neck snap, which causes both him and Viola DeWynter to panic. The Protagonist and Shaundi plan to assassinate Killbane by sniping him off from their helicopter, but are narrowly thwarted when Matt hacks into the helicopter's flight computer and overloads it with an EMP, causing it to crash. Matt then mocks The Protagonist by sending him a text reading "Cheers ;)".
Matt manages to get surveillance of Kinzie Kensington's "inner sanctum" through her own personal computer. After gaining key information, he mocks Kinzie and The Protagonist on video. It is the first time The Protagonist sees and hears Matt. Kinzie eventually figures out how to upload The Protagonist's subconscious into the "Decker Use-Net" (Matt Miller's virtual stronghold) using a stolen NEMO device, where The Protagonist defeats Matt in combat despite Matt's control over the virtual world's laws of physics. Because too much shock in the virtual world would leave him brain-dead, Matt is threatened with death and convinces The Protagonist to spare him in exchange for either weapon or car customization discounts.
Immediately after his defeat, Matt Miller nervously requests from Killbane to let him leave the Syndicate. Surprisingly, Killbane graciously lets him go and offers to let him "list [Killbane] as a reference anytime". A post-mission news report by Jane Valderamma reveals that after leaving town, Matt Miller swore off modern technology and left the world of hacking. Valderamma also reveals that Matt had always expressed an interest in neo-luddism, and felt it was time to "make a change".
Saints Row IVEdit
Before the events of Saints Row IV, Matt Miller joins MI6 with Asha Odekar and works with the 3rd Street Saints to assassinate ex-STAG commander-turned-terrorist, Cyrus Temple. When The Protagonist hops onto the nuke targeted for Washington D.C., Kinzie encourages everyone to say their final goodbyes. Miller confesses that had he known that The Protagonist would sacrifice themself for the sake of the world, he would've never tried to kill them. Thankfully, The Protagonist destroys the nuke and lands safely in the Oval Office.  
Five years later, The Protagonist is President of the United States and has many of the 3rd Street Saints in his administration. Asha and Matt (now in his early twenties) come to warn the President of an impending alien invasion, due to their superiors at MI6 disbelieving their claims. But their warning comes too late, as the alien Zin invade that very day. Miller and Asha briefly fight alongside The Protagonist before they are all abducted.
Miller is trapped in a virtual simulation of his own worst fear: a text-based roleplaying adventure that he couldn't control. The Protagonist later arrives to rescue him, select the proper dialogue to help free Miller, including helping him defeat Killbane. He is then freed from his prison in the real world, albeit naked. The Protagonist then goes to rescue him piloting power armor. Once they rendezvous, Miller helps fully activate the power armor's weapons, enabling them to escape. 
Matt then creates a training simulation based on his Nyte Blayde fanfiction, where he was Nyte Blayde's close friend/ally and The Protagonist was his sidekick, much to the latter's frustration. As they aided Nyte Blayde in his hunt for the Cardinal, Matt retells the premise and story of the show to The Protagonist, who is surprised by how intriguing it was. Unfortunately, Zinyak alters the simulation so Nyte Blayde would believe that Matt was a traitor. After killing Nyte Blayde, Matt becomes dismayed that he was forced to kill his hero, to which The Protagonist responds by giving him ownership of all the rights of Nyte Blayde, much to the hacker's joy.
Saints Row: The ThirdEdit
- GameInformer - one of the first magazines to have exclusive information on Saints Row: The Third - has an associate editor by the same name.
- Of all the antagonists in the game series, Matt is the only one shown to be shocked when someone is killed, screaming "Christ Killbane!" and being visually distraught when he kills Kiki DeWynter, though this is possibly due to her having been an ally and Killbane's remorselessness.
- Miller's in-game outfit is very different from his promotional artwork.
- He is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, who provided the voice of Shogo Akuji in Saints Row 2. While it is likely unintentional, while Matt Miller begged for his life, out of fear of dying, Shogo begged for death, out of fear of being buried alive.
- He is one of few enemy gang leaders who are spared during the series. Others include Killbane, who escapes; and Benjamin King and Viola DeWynter, who defect.
- According to the Saints Row website, Matt was let into the Syndicate because Phillipe could not figure out how to use his cell phone.
- According to the Saints Row website, his online handle is R4gn0r0k, although this is never mentioned in-game. R4gn0r0k is a reference to the old Norse word "Ragnarok", meaning "Armageddon". However, the word is commonly interpreted as the "final destiny of God", falling in line with his belief of being God in his own virtual reality.
- Keeping with his nature, The Protagonist never meets Matt in person. The closest is at the end of "http://deckers.die" where his digital avatar takes on his real-world appearance.
- Matt Miller often mockingly addresses Kinzie as "Agent Kensington" with emphasis on "Agent". This is a reference to him being responsible for her termination as an FBI agent.
- When he says "Don't you get it? I'm god here." that is a reference from the film The Lawnmower Man.
- During the mission "http://deckers.die", Matt reveals he is a fan of Nyte Blayde and has modeled his cyber world after an important building in the series.
- In Saints Row IV, if you romance him, he will ask you to call him Nyte Blade during the act.
- In Saints Row IV he reveals that he has read and written Nyte Blayde fanfiction. He then turned his fanfiction into a training simulation. 
- At 16, Matt Miller is the youngest antagonist in the Saints Row series, as well as the only faction leader known to be younger than The Protagonist.
- He is the only character in the Saints Row series whose age is revealed.
- When the official Saints Row website was taken down prior to Saints Row: The Third's release in October 2011, a temporary message claimed that the "Forums and Registration [were] closed for maintenance while [they got] Matt Miller out of the system."
Saints Row IVEdit
- Matt is the first homie that you rescue and the first that can become a Super Homie.
- At the end of his Loyalty mission, Matt Miller owns all the rights, merchandise and publishing deals of the Nyte Blade franchise thanks to The Protagonist.
- Matt appears to be more friendly towards Kinzie and actually uses her first name regularly unlike in Saints Row: The Third, but Kinzie still shows hostility towards him, but during Welcome Back, Kinzie does stick up for him when The Protagonist loses his temper and attacks him.
- Matt is 1 of 2 homies that require The Protagonist to physically retrieve from the Zin, the other person being Gat. All the other homies after being rescued are already on the ship.
- If the player uses Female voice 2 for The Protagonist, they will refer to Matt as "Matthew" throughout the game.
- Matt seems to have gotten taller in reaching his adult height, being about the same height as The Protagonist.
- Matt's suit on the ship has a very large collar similar to his Deckers outfit. While other homies wear parts of their default apparel in addition to their ship suit, Matt seems to be the only one to actually modify his suit.
- Matt Miller and Benjamin King are the only gang leaders in the series to survive all the way up to the events of Saints Row IV and become allies to the 3rd Street Saints. They have a few other things in common as well in that while they initially oppose the Saints with their respective gangs, eventually (due to various circumstances) they both end up dropping their flags in favor of more legitimate lifestyles. King becomes a best-selling author (and later the Chief of Staff); Matt becomes an MI6 agent and uses his skills to help save the United States from Cyrus Temple.
- Unlike King however, Matt (as a gang leader) actually does try to kill The Protagonist on several occasions. It was only out of fear and desperation after his defeat at the Saints' leader's hand that led him to abandon the gang lifestyle.
- At best, the most that Ben King (as a gang leader) tried to do in terms of dealing with the Saints was to have Police Chief Monroe (who was on King's payroll) put more pressure on them. Likely because (at the time) he considered the Saints to be just a minor nuisance. Ironically, this "soft" attitude toward the Saints is what eventually led King to be usurped (and nearly killed) by his rebellious lieutenants: Warren Williams and Tanya Winters.
- If Matt and King are both called up in The Simulation as homies, their conversation will end negatively with Matt choosing his words poorly and King getting offended by it.
- His super powered outfit is based off of Nyte Blayde.
- "That punk kid is the cyber god who just crashed your helicopter. Cheers!"
- — Matt Miller to The Protagonist in Learning Computer
- Matt Miller: "The Saints aren't going to back down..."
Killbane: "Matty, there's nothing to worry about."
Phillipe Loren: "My thoughts exactly, Mr. Killbane."
— Matt Miller, Killbane and Phillipe Loren
- "This is my world to shape as I see fit, not yours."
- — Matt Miller in http://deckers.die
- Matt Miller: ""I literally have the world at my fingertips."
The Protagonist: "Little vague Matt, gotta do better."
— Matt Miller and The Protagonist
- "Thanks for the tip Agent Kensington."
- — Matt Miller to Kinzie in Learning Computer
- Matt Miller: "Ladies, it was a pretty shit plan."
Kiki DeWynter: "Tell me something, Matt. Did you have a plan?"
— Matt Miller and Kiki DeWynter
- "With respect, sir... I'd say "empty" is no longer applicable."
- — Matt Miller to Phillipe Loren, on the Saints's "empty" threats.
- During the mission Learning Computer, Matt argues with The Protagonist, saying he can do anything The Protagonist can do. The Protagonist fires back with "Oh yeah? Buy a pack of cigarettes," to which Matt replies by muttering "ageist."
- In a radio advertisement, there is an interview with Matt who says: "I may exist in the meat space, but I live in the cyber space.
- Main article: Audio Logs
- "I'd say it's a tough world for someone to live in, but I'd be lying. Well, if they were the god of the cyber world like I was that is. Put me in front of the latest technology and there wasn't anything I couldn't do. Even the FBI couldn't stop me, and believe me they tried. Kinzie Kensington came close, but a few additions to her file and some photos and even she couldn't come close to crashing my fun. Probably why I was recruited into the Syndicate in the first place."
- — Matt Audio Log 1
- "Working for the Syndicate was a great job. That is until Phillipe Loren died, because Killbane was one scary psychopath. I mean, I watched him kill Kiki right in front of me, and right in front of her own sister! So I went after the Saints instead. Wrong choice on my part. But they let me live, and surprisingly so did Killbane. Only option then was to leave the country and hide."
- — Matt Audio Log 2
- "How was I supposed to know that MI6 would end up offering me asylum just so they could pair me up with one of their operatives? I mean, Asha and I got along great, but now I had to work with the government instead of against it. Not usually my cup of tea. Still, I guess it's better than being hunted down by the Saints or Killbane. I just have to keep myself from pissing off a trained killer is all."
- — Matt Audio Log 3
- Matt and Asha
- Asha: "How are you enjoying the field work, Matt?"
Matt Miller: "To be honest I'd rather coordinate efforts from a safe distance. Mastermind is more my speed."
Asha: "Come on now, you have to admit there's an allure to being in the middle of the action."
Matt Miller: "An allure? Is it spy-code for dirt, blood, fire, nausea and the insufferable blatherings of monosyllabic enemies that all look alike?"
Matt Miller: "Well then, yes it does have an allure."
- Matt and CID
- CID: "By the way, Matt, I finished retrieving your data from the satellite backup like you asked."
Matt Miller: "Oh. Good."
CID: "I took the liberty of partitioning one of the drives on The Ship and putting the data there for easy retrieval."
Matt Miller: "You did what!?"
CID: "I also informed Kinzie that I sequestered 1.4 terabytes of onboard storage for the task and asked that she check the data for infection and completeness."
Matt Miller: "You told Kinzie?"
CID: "Yes, Ms. Kensington made it very clear to me that she should be informed of anything related to the ship."
Matt Miller: "You told Kinzie!"
CID: "You sound distressed, I would not worry. There is nothing to be embarrassed about, I imagine Ms. Kensington has already seen herself naked."
Matt Miller: "Shit."
- Matt and Fun Shaundi
- Fun Shaundi: "Wow, so I hear you're like a super smart hacker."
Matt Miller: "Oh, you heard right. Yes, I am of a sophisticated intellect."
Fun Shaundi: "But you're way more chill than Kinzie, she's kinda high-strung."
Matt Miller: "Perhaps I'm more confidant in my abilities."
Fun Shaundi: "You're also kinda cute."
Matt Miller: "Oh! Well, thank you."
Fun Shaundi: "And you have that cute accent. What are you doing after this? You wanna smoke a bulb? Maybe see where things go?"
Matt Miller: "I... don't think older you would appreciate that very much."
Fun Shaundi: "She doesn't have to know."
Matt Miller: "But she would. Older Shaundi knows everything."
- Matt and Gat
- Matt Miller: "If you don't mind me saying so Johnny, you're not nearly the psychopathic killing machine I was led to believe."
Johnny Gat: "Oh, yeah? I guess I'll take that as a compliment."
Matt Miller: "In fact I think I get you. Power at any cost, ultimate control, absolute loyalty to yourself. You and I share that, Johnny."
Johnny Gat: "All right, yeah. You know you're not so bad, Miller."
Matt Miller: "We're like brothers."
- Matt and Keith
- Matt Miller: "I'm a big fan of your work, Mr. David."
Keith David: "We're fighting side by side, Matt. Please, call me Keith."
Matt Miller: "I can't say I've seen everything, but definitely all the big stuff. Which would you say is your favorite role?"
Keith David: "I'd say my favorite role is that of the Vice President of the United States."
Matt Miller: "Really? Which movie was that?"
Keith David: "Real life, Matt."
Matt Miller: "Oh God! You're one of those."
- Matt and King
- Matt Miller: "I can't imagine what it must be like for a distinguished gentleman such as yourself to be brought back into the street gang."
Ben King: "Actually, I don't mind stretching my legs a bit. Things are different now, of course, because we're avenging the Earth."
Matt Miller: "True, I imagine it was much worse when you were just a thug trying to make a name for yourself in a world of crime and vice."
Ben King: "A thug? Are you saying that I was just a thug back in Stilwater?"
Matt Miller: "Oh, no. Of course not, I-I just mean, you know that poverty and drugs and the ever widening gulf between the upper and lower economic classes and hip-hop culture."
Ben King: "You really wanna shut your mouth now, son."
Matt Miller: "Yes, Mr. King."
- Matt and Kinzie
- Kinzie: "In case I hadn't said it yet, Matt, you're doing a fine job."
Matt Miller: "Thank you, Kinzie. That's very big of you."
Kinzie: "You know, I originally thought you running home to England in exchange for amnesty and a job with MI6 was cowardice, but you helped quite a bit with the Cyrus Temple mission."
Matt Miller: "Yes I did and you did a fine job of keeping everything together after the Earth blew up, until I could be retrieved to take over."
Kinzie: "Oh Matt, you were so close."
- Matt and Pierce
- Matt Miller: "Of all the Saints, Pierce, I admit I feel the most direct kinship with you."
Pierce: "Why? Because we're both British?"
Matt Miller: "We're outcasts, you and I. Strangers even amongst peers."
Pierce: "Yeah. I guess, Matt."
Matt Miller: "Tough to hear Shaundi tell it, she doesn't consider you much of a peer at all."
Pierce: "She what? Dammit, I knew she felt that way."
- Matt and Roddy
- Matt Miller: "This is... probably a strange time to mention it, but you were one of the best bad guys in wrestling history."
Roddy Piper: "Oh well, that's very kind of you to say."
Matt Miller: "You were probably my favorite wrestler of all time."
Roddy Piper: "Thank you."
Matt Miller: "I even had one of your action figures, I had another of myself too, homemade, not professional of course. I'd pretend we were tag team partners and we'd obliterate our opponents with devastating moves."
Roddy Piper: "Oh yeah?"
Matt Miller: "As our co-op finisher you would throw me over your head and I'd land on the opponent and deliver a massive suplex in midair. Then you and I would go have a tea-party with Mr. Fluffykins and Penelope Rabbit."
Roddy Piper: "I'm gonna be over here, kid."
- Matt and Shaundi
- Matt Miller: "Who would have thought, eh? You and me fighting side by side."
Shaundi: "Certainly not me."
Matt Miller: "But it's good. Your brawn and my brains, your sass and my good looks, we're like a buddy cop show."
Shaundi: "The one where the pissed off ex-gang member gets a dog for a partner so she straps it to the roof of the cop car and drives down the freeway at 131 miles per hour?"
Matt Miller: "That's not a real show."
- Cyrus and Matt
- Cyrus: "Aren't you the kid who hacked into STAG secure database and changed all the top secret filenames to...What was it? Something with an R."
Matt Miller: "What? Me? No, I'm sure of thinking of somebody else. I'm a member of MI6."
Cyrus: "I remember, RagnarokWins. You sure that wasn't you?"
Matt Miller: "RagnarokWinsAgain. And yes that totally wasn't me."
- Julius and Matt
- Julius: "So, is it true you once tried to kill the President?"
Matt Miller: "Well, it was before they were President. But, well, yes."
Julius: "That's something we have in common, then."
Matt Miller: "You tried to... really?"
Julius: "Tried to blow 'em up on a boat."
Matt Miller: "Impressive, I tried to trap their mind inside a virtual world that would render them brain dead and leave their body to rot in meat space."
Julius: "So, kinda like Zinyak then?"
Matt Miller: "What? No, nothing like... ha, well I'll be damned."
- Maero and Matt
- Maero: "You know, I had a best friend named Matt once."
Matt Miller: "Oh really? What was he like?"
Maero: "Good guy, good guitarist, great tattoo artist."
Matt Miller: "Sounds like a good man. What happened to him?"
Maero: "The Saints lit his hand and arm on fire."
Matt Miller: "I knew this had a bad ending."
- Phillipe and Matt
- Matt Miller: "It's nice to see you again, Mr. Loren."
Phillipe: "Please, Matt, call me Phillipe."
Matt Miller: "Really? Oh, all right then. It's nice to get to talk to you on a more personal level."
Phillipe: "I like that idea very much, I even have a topic for us."
Matt Miller: "Oh? What might that be?"
Phillipe: "Tell me what happened to Kiki and Viola."
Matt Miller: "On second thought, I have enough friends."
- Tanya and Matt
- Tanya: "You're from Steelport, right?"
Matt Miller: "Not originally, but yes, I spent some time there."
Tanya: "I heard it's a nice place. I thought about setting up an expansion of my business there once."
Matt Miller: "Really? And that type of business was this?"
Tanya: "Oh, you know. Prostitution, mostly."
Matt Miller: "Oh."
Tanya: "Any chance you might be looking for a good time?"
Matt Miller: "No, thank you ma'am."
- Veteran Child and Matt
- Veteran Child: "Pretty crazy, huh? The Saints bringing back us bad guys to help em out."
Matt Miller: "I'm actually not a bad guy anymore, I've worked with the Saints before."
Veteran Child: "Wait, I thought I heard you were the head of the gang, right? And you tried to take out the Saints back in Steelport?"
Matt Miller: "Yes, that's right. But I'm reformed. The Saints beat me and I went back to England, joined MI6 and all that."
Veteran Child: "The Saints beat you and let you leave? They let you live?"
Matt Miller: "Yes?"
Veteran Child: "What the hell. This is bullshit, man."
