The "Player" is a major character in the Carmen Sandiego television shows. In both incarnations, they are a teenage gamer appearing in an isolated bedroom to provide intel for the main characters. The first incarnation served as a person from the "real world" to the show's setting, which was depicted as a game, where they communicated with Carmen via computer to bookend each episode, implying the show's events were just a game on their computer. The 2019 reboot expands on this role as a computer hacker who assists Carmen in her missions.

In "Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?", the "Player" is depicted as various teenagers.
