The rank of Master of Antics, also known as Antic Master, is one of the highest obtainable ranks in the Antic Order, and those who hold this title are assumed to have reached the peak of their training in anticology. The rank garners a lot of respect from other members of the Order, and often indicates individuals with uncommon skill in the art of stealth and pulling antics. Masters of Antics never pull antics on an innocent person (although Fegelein is repeatedly shown to violate this principle and execute them on almost everyone, whether they get in his way or not), hide in plain sight, and never compromise their Order.
- Hermann Otto Fegelein (1906 - 1945), of the Berlin Antics Guild
- Lt. Werner (? - ?), of the Kriegsmarine Antics Guild
- Mikhail Tukhachevsky (1893 - 1937), of the Moscow Antics Guild
- Khamis al-Gaddafi (1983- 2012) of the Tripoli Antics Guild
- Felicity Merriman (1770s - ?) of the Williamsburg Antics Guild
- Emperor Hirohito (1901 - 1989) of the Tokyo Antics Guild
- Werner Hartenstein (1908 - 1943) of the Atlantic Ocean Guild
- Leopold Slikk/Angry German Kid (1994) of the Mannheim and Berlin Antics Guild
- Michael Rosen (1946) of the London Antics Guild
- Hewel, in contrast with his geeky/cool image in Downfall, was probably the only character appearing in the film who performed antics in real life - he often played practical jokes on Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, to Hitler's amusement. He thus can be regarded as the real Antic Master.
