Doctor Algernop Krieger[1] is the head of the ISIS Applied Research Department. He goes by the title of Doctor and performs many activities that require a medical degree; however, he is neither a medical doctor nor "the other kind" ("technically"). His "father" was a Nazi scientist who fled with him to Brazil, where they lived until Krieger was 15 when his pet Dobermans killed his father. It was then that Malory Archer brought him to ISIS. He was in a relationship with Cheryl Tunt, which he sustained by giving her doses of LSD via his "magic breath strips." He is implied to be a clone, made explicit after meeting three other clones.

He speaks fluent English, German, and Portuguese.[2] However, he appears to have little or no exposure to modern street vernacular; for example, he misunderstands the phrase "tight" to mean "confining," rather than "very satisfactory," as intended by the speaker.[3]

Krieger lives in run down, "transitional" neighborhoods which allows him to use his salary for "pet projects."  His interests include bionics, cloning, recreational drug design, and drumming.

Science ExperimentsEdit

Krieger Clones

Krieger's Clones

Doctor Krieger has conducted many experiments in the ISIS applied research laboratories:
  • Creating a series of (imperfect) clones of himself.[4]
  • Engineering a half-man, half-pig creature named "Pigley."[5]
  • Engineering (what is assumed to be) a half-man, half-goat creature named "Goatley." [5]
  • Programming his own virtual girlfriend.[6]
  • Creating his own breast milk, which he has drunk on at least one occasion.[7]
  • Testing a very ineffective form of body armor with an intern named Chet.[7]
  • Creating a sex-bot called "Fister Roboto" that does more than just fist — it is a multi-fetish artificial intelligence robot, and the best part is that it learns.[8]
  • Creating a Chokebot to choke Cheryl after she complains that his own hands were weak and childlike.[9]
  • Creating the Formula K compounds that he tested on Danny the Intern, which supposedly turns subjects gay.[10]
  • Creating Magic Breath Strips that were actually laced with LSD.[11]
  • Tricking Ray, Pam, and Cheryl into drinking Krieger Kleanse, a tea he said was to evade a drug test, but also served as a hallucinogenic experiment.[12]
  • Designing the world's most advanced Spy Car.[13]
  • Turning Archer's mostly dead fiancee, Katya Kazanova, into a sexually functional Cyborg.[14]
  • Attempting to channel and duplicate the pound-for-pound strength of an ant into himself.[15]
  • Building cyborg legs for Ray Gillette and a bionic arm for Conway Stern. Has bionic hands ready for Lana; all she has to do is: "Say the word." Till that time, they shall suffice as "jazz hands".[16]
  • Working on unspecified but, (presumably) dangerous and unsuccessful projects involving Komodo Dragons.[17]
  • Instructing Barry Dylan in how to build a spacecraft capable of surviving re-entry.[18]
  • Made an irradiated pig named Pigley III, who eats people.[19]
  • Made a mind control chip that is so tiny that it can be placed into the head with a syringe, that is later to be revealed as a tiny sticker from a Lego toy in season five.[20]
  • Made a narco submarine that is undetectable by the coast guard, but confined entirely to Cheryl's indoor swimming pool. [21]
  • Presumably the creature whose eyestalk emerges from the hot tub of the secret spa, as seen in The Archer Sanction.

Quotes Edit

  • "Smoke bomb!" - Various episodes.
  • "Stop! My penis can only get so erect."
  • "For the love of God! Seal the exits!"


  • Ben Brieger served as the model for Krieger.
  • Even though Krieger was shown in the first 2 episodes, he didn't have a voice until season 1 episode 4, Killing Utne.
  • Krieger was revealed to be the notorious food rapist, AKA the "Pita Predator."[22]
  • He seems to be one of the few characters who genuinely likes Archer.  This may be because Archer generally treats him well.
  • He has $105,526 in his ISIS 401(k)[3]
  • According to ISIS employment records, his legal first name is "Doctor."[3]
  • He is neither a medical doctor, nor does he have a doctoral degree of any kind.[11]
  • "Krieger" is German for "warrior."[2]
  • Krieger appears to be trilingual as he shouted at Cyril in German, and was making Portuguese language flashcards for Archer.[2]
  • He is an expert in manipulating the controls for the ISIS building, such as the elevator and the furnace (although he admits he has no idea how to run the ISIS worldwide radar system). He is also very good at improvising devices from scavenged equipment.[23][18]
  • Pam has sarcastically called Krieger "Clone Wars," after she discovered that he was a possible genetic clone of Adolf Hitler.[2] This is a reference to how the Clone Troopers in the Star Wars series were created by using a genetic sample from Mandalorian bounty hunter, Jango Fett.
  • Krieger has little in the way of scruples, willing to trick his co-workers into unwillingly becoming lab rats for his experiments and staging bum fights using electric shock gloves, he does oppose his clone "bruders" in launching a nerve gas missile , although he kills all three of them to achieve this[24]
  • Krieger is a certified diver and has a flesh-tone, neoprene diving suit in his apartment.[14]
  • He lives in a filthy apartment complex that he describes as a "transitional neighborhood" because he spends his entire salary on "pet projects."[14]
  • The door to Krieger's lab is apparently from the pocket battleship Graf Spee, as stated in Legs. Though resistant to handgun fire and protected by electronic locks, it is vulnerable to rocket launchers and C4. Further, his lab is directly connected to the HV/AC duct, into which he has positioned nerve gas canisters.
  • Krieger is frequently shown to own less than legal vans, which often get damaged or destroyed through the course of the series. They all have references to Rush albums, both in their names and the murals on the side.
  • He apparently is a fairly accomplished drummer, although he is unable to play Rush's "[YYZ]", which he claimed to be "impossible [as] Neil Peart stands alone."[14]
  • In addition to Rush, he is also a fan of Creedence Clearwater Revival; Cheryl returned his CCR album collection as she was breaking up with him.[9]
  • Krieger says he is not a "serial" killer, although he put emphasis on the word "serial," implying that he is a killer. He is an expert at disposing of bodies and is completely callous both about the death of his colleagues and the act of putting bodies in dumpsters.[14][25][16]
  • He has numerous sexual fetishes and is expert in many of them. He has a firm opinion in favor of using corn starch as an aid to putting on "gimp suits"[26]. He also likes collecting vibrators.[25]
  • He frequently gets erections at seemingly inappropriate times, such as with his bum fights[23], while carving up dead bodies[25], when contemplating cyborg fights[18], or when he is just happy.[14] These recurring erections are a running joke in the series as they are obvious to the other characters, or even pointed out by himself when they go unnoticed. Unfortunately, he also sometimes has difficulty achieving erection under more normal circumstances.[18]
  • Throughout the series, as another running joke, he often shouts "Me, too!" in odd circumstances, for instance in reference to making his own aforementioned breast milk,[7] when Pam tells Archer to give his mother a hug as a thank you for his Dodge Challenger Special Agent Edition birthday present, he says no, and then Lana states, "Oh, God! He's got an erection!" [13], when Archer tells Woodhouse he would sneak up on him in his sleep if he wanted to see his bare feet[7], when Trinette says Seamus has a full diaper[7] and when Ray says he "piss[es] and shit[s] in a plastic bag".[16] This joke had fallen into disuse as of season 4.
  • Archer is quoted saying that "Krieger's virtual girlfriend is so real that the state of New York is allowing him to legally marry her"[6] and is subsequently destroyed by Lana in the next shot.
  • Krieger encounter three clones identical to himself in appearance, habits and personality in San Marcos. Following a fight that resulted in three of the four Kriegers dead, it is ambiguous as to whether or not the surviving Krieger is the original of the group or one of the three clones, the identity muddled by being aware of Cheryl's "microchip" yet seemingly "forgetting" his co-workers names (which he originally attributed to a concussion.) This seems to be a reference to the film The Boys from Brazil, in which 94 genetically identical clones of Adolf Hitler were created by Joseph Mengele.
  • As a running joke Krieger reacts to something by screaming, "No, you maniac! You blew her up! Damn you! God damn you all to hell!" (Or some variation on the original line, such as, "They were goat feet. And you threw them out! Oh, damn you! God damn you all to hell!" in Pocket Listing.) This is an obvious reference to the final line from the 1968 film Planet of the Apes.
  • Krieger owns and operates a company called AlgerSoft which has a top secret website[27] which can be accessed by deciphering the various clues provided in Season 6 starting with episode 2 to obtain the username and password. Among the files available on the site include all of Krieger's research, some music and ringtones and surveillance videos inside of the Tunt Manor bathroom.
