Secretly, he is also the minion of Wranglum, the main antagonist of the series.
He is proven to be intelligent enough to be able to read and understand the text of books, as seen in the episode Wranglum in Disguise.
Battiwigs and Wranglum
Battiwigs does the bidding of the evil Wranglum, though why has not been explained. Wranglum treats Battiwigs poorly, occasionally even attacking him with spells, but Battiwigs seems to crave praise from Wranglum. Usually this seems like a toxic friendship, with the exception of the episode Wranglum in Disguise, which suggests that Wranglum truly cares for the bat on some level.
Battiwigs is one of very few non-Filly creatures who has been seen speaking. Bijou, the other regularly-seen dorm pet, seems unable to speak. Furthermore, Battiwigs has never been seen to speak to the Fillies, meaning it's possible that they don't know he can speak, or that Wranglum is the only one who understands what Battiwigs is saying.
Tula, the spider from Hide and Seek appears to have an ability to talk as well but it's not known whether she gained this ability by one of Wranglum's spells or not.
Information from the pitch bible of Filly Funtasia
Battiwigs is a sneaky little Filly Dorm-pet turned wanna-be bigwig. Despite the fact that his diminutive mental misfit is a total loser, and that he never fails to screw things up and infuriate both the Fillys and the evil Wizard, this silly looking purple pest is still adorable and even, dare we say, lovable!
The constant verbal, and oft-times literal tug-of-war between Batti and 'his' new Magic Mirror may drive the Wizard within crazy, but the pesky Batti enjoys every second of his new found power - albeit sometimes explosive.
Batti and his Magic Mirror are forever bickering, and while they both really want to get the Fillys, they actually spend far more energy punishing each other in wild and whacky ways!
