In the film The Matrix agents are computer programs that resemble humans charged with hunting down anyone who poses a threat to the Matrix including rebels and those affiliated with them as well as renegade programs.

Agents masquerade as government agents resembling the Men In Black of UFO conspiracy theories, always dressing in dark suits and sunglasses and wearing earpieces that can be used not only to communicate with each other but to tap into the matrix and locate abnormalities. With the exception of Agent Smith, Agents seem to lack personality as they talk in monotone voices and never express any form of emotion.

Agents have superhuman abilities. They are capable of dodging bullets, punching through stone and taking over the body of anyone who's mind is imprisoned in the matrix. They are also seeming unable to feel pain. They also have pinpoint accuracy and always carry concealed desert eagles.

Agents can never truly die as when the are killed they are sent back to the Machine mainframe leaving the body they were inhabiting and can respawn using their earlier mentioned ability to take over one's body. The only way an agent can truly die is if they are deleted by the Machines or some other entity.

The Machines have influenced the government into doing the Agents' bidding as the agents operate under the guise of investigating computer crime and terrorism and are able issue orders to the police department.

The agents from the first Matrix film were deleted and replaced with upgraded agents who were larger, stronger, and faster and appeared in the second Matrix film. Some agents are granted authority over others, such as Agent Smith who commanded two other agents before betraying the Machines after his programming was disrupted, or Agent Johnson who led three upgraded agents in The Matrix Reloaded.

Neo is the only person to ever defeat an agent without the help of the environment. To date, Agents are still active in the Matrix universe.
Those are Agents holding him, three of them.

Sentient programs within the Matrix, the law enforcers for the Machine organization. They all resemble tall white males in suits and sunglasses. They can move in and out of any hardware directly connected to the Matrix, which means that anyone who's mind has not been liberated is potentially an Agent. They have amazing abilities not limited to super strength, speed, accuracy, and masterful skill of all martial arts. Only one human has ever been able to defeat any Agents who attempt to oppose him: the One, Neo. Now that he is deceased, Zion operatives can do only one thing when they see Agents: run.
"I've seen an Agent punch through a concrete wall, men have emptied entire clips at them and hit nothing but air. Yet their strength and their speed is still based in a world that is built on rules..."

A citizen of another country (non-US)who provides information and/or services of importance to the CIA. The country's government generally remains unaware that the agent is working with the CIA.
I'm not an agent working for the CIA, I'm an Officer working for the CIA! There's a big difference. An officer is generally a United States citizen trained by the CIA. An agent is just some bozo we hire to backstab his country. They're 2 completely different positions! Now that I've told you this, I'm afraid I'm going to have to kill you.

Creatures that can take over anyone's body that is still hardwired to The Matrix.
When you see an agent, you run.

What conspiracy theorists like to call the people who don't believe in their wacko theories and who will argue against the theorists with reasonable arguments and evidence. Theorists will claim these people are working for the government and a part of the conspiracy.
Those conspiracy theorists called me an agent because I actually provided a reasonable explanation why a purple elephant didn't crash into the Pentagon on 9/11.
