Hatchiyack (ハッチヒャック Hacchihyakku) is a machine that was created by the Tuffle scientist Dr. Lychee to eradicate the remaining Saiyans and the main antagonist of Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans.
Hatchiyack is a machine with a unique looking design. What appears to possibly be a skin like substance is pink while the armour that covers him in parts is red. He also has blue oval shaped designs on his arms, chest and head which glow brightly when he is storing up energy. In the remake of the OVA, these were changed to green instead of blue.
Being a machine, Hatchiyack is focused on his objective to eradicate the last Saiyans and everything that stands in his way. He is also ruthless and merciless when it comes to finishing his mission. In the 2010 remake, he displays more emotion and slightly more dialogue.
Hatchiyack first appears as a massive supercomputer, designed by Dr. Lychee to amplify the "power of hate" in order to help the Tuffles fight back and defeat the Saiyan menace. Unfortunately for the Tuffles, Dr. Lychee is unable to complete his machine in time to stop the Saiyan advance; instead, he allows Hatchiyack to absorb the hatred and negative energy of the fallen Tuffles before jettisoning it into outer space.
Dragon Ball Z
Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans
Main article: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans series Years after the Saiyan-Tuffle war and the Genocide of the Saiyans, the machine revives Dr. Lychee, Frieza, Cooler, Lord Slug, and Turles as Ghost Warriors in order to attack the remaining Saiyans that live on Earth. After absorbing the pure hatred of Dr. Lychee's ghost, who was defeated by the Dragon Team on the Dark Planet, the machine materializes itself into a powerful fighter.
Hatchiyack first appears to be too powerful for the Z Fighters to handle, but after about 15 minutes of a one-sided fight, Goku figures out Hatchiyack's weakness. Hatchiyack only fires his Revenger Cannon after charging up for 15 seconds and doing so leaves him completely defenseless. Knowing this, Goku and the others begin powering up their strongest blasts and fire at the count of 15. And after a brief struggle, this proves to be more than enough to fully destroy Hatchiyack.
In Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Shin Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku - Uchū-Hen, Hatchiyack survives the Z Fighters' attack and continues the battle. The final battle depends on the player's earlier choice: if Goku went to the first planet then the final battle is against Super Hatchiyack, who defeats the Z Fighters once more until he is taken down by an Instant Spirit Bomb. If Goku went to the second planet, the final battle is against Giant Hatchiyack, who is defeated when Goku flies inside him and destroys his core.

- Prison Planet Gathering Saga
In the manga, Hatchiyack was taken to the Prison Planet by Fu and gifted with a Special Dragon Ball. He invades the Chaos Area of the Prison Planet and attacks the Frieza Force troops located there with Ghost Warriors. When Majin Ozotto finds the machine that is creating the Ghost Warriors and prepares to destroy it, Hatchiyack appears from behind him and Ozotto senses that he is carrying one of the Special Dragon Balls.
Upon being sensed by King Kai, King Kai states that Hatchiyack has the greatest ki he has ever sensed. Hatchiyack is described by Goku as being possibly stronger than Broly (whose Power Level is around 1,400,000,000 in his Legendary Super Saiyan form according to a 2004 V-Jump). He has minimal difficulty fighting Super Saiyan Goku, Super Saiyan Gohan, Super Saiyan Vegeta, Super Saiyan Future Trunks, and Piccolo, which also alludes to the Broly comparison since Broly also performed a similar feat.
In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission, Hatchiyack is able to take down King Cold with a sneak attack, he proves too much for Future Trunks and Cooler, and upon taking on his Super Grudge Amplification form it takes Future Trunks, Cooler and Majin Ozotto working together to defeat him.
