The Lost Cases of Boxmore (translated from its native title: Los casos perdidos de Boxmore) is an episode from the Cartoon Network Latin America web series Villainous that aired on January 6, 2018 on YouTube. Black Hat reviews Lord Boxman in the episode. This episode's dialogue is in Latin American Spanish.

The episode does not have a direct correlation with the series' canon or timeline since events are not brought up into the show's main series. But some subtle hints suggests some connection with the shows' continuity as the episode uses scenes from the "Boxmore Infomercial" short, "Let's Be Friends", "Let's Be Heroes", and "Stop Attacking the Plaza". In a drawing comic Ian Jones-Quartey made thanking the Villainous series creator, it shows that the episode is a video watched by Lord Boxman criticizing Black Hat for judging how Lord Boxman runs his business. It suggested that Lord Boxman and Professor Venomous are working on the Boxman Jr. project hinting that it takes place after "Villains' Night Out" and "Villains' Night In" and before "Action News" when the project is complete.
