|Universe||Ben 10 Universe|
Appoplexians are felinoids with huge muscles from the planet Appoplexia.
Appoplexians are generally 9ft. tall muscular bipedal tailless tigers with individual claws sprouting from each wrist. Their fur is either orange, maroon, brown, or white. They have white or cream on the muzzles, hands, stomachs, chests and feet, and black stripes on their head, shoulders, back, and legs. They also have 4-fingered hands, 3-toed feet, and quill-like eyebrows over each eye.
Powers and Abilities Edit
Appoplexians are powerful, argumentative, and extremely aggressive, believing any problem can be solved by hitting it "a lot". They have immense strength, as well as being durable enough to withstand a powerful laser at point-blank range without a single scratch. The claws on their wrists can extend and retract. By stabbing the ground, they can create a shock wave strong enough to burst a rock into rubble, or knock something over.
Appoplexians are almost always angry, and have the urge to fight anything that breathes, or at least, moves. This addiction to violence leads them to be quite dim, forgetting things and being easily distracted. They are also prone to referring to people by their full title, as well as beginning a conversation with, "Let me tell ya somethin'....!". They also have animalistic tendencies, such as growling, roaring, and relentlessly seeking food when hungry.
Appoplexians are also not very bright. Because of their disjointedness, Appoplexians are prone mixing up metaphors. Mentally, they are more cat-like than Revonnahganders, hence why Nyancy Chan was able to subject Rath to her cat-controlling powers.
Most Appoplexians have a strong sense of shame, making Ben Tennyson's Appoplexian form Rath technically a nudist. Fortunately, the Slimebiote Skurd was able to correct an error on the Omnitrix, allowing Rath to adopt a Luchador-based outfit.
Due to Appoplexians being obsessed with violence and anger, they lack intelligence. As a result of this, they can be easily distracted in ways that can also affect Earth cats, such as mice and dots of light.
Appoplexians are hydrophobic (having fear of water). Certain high pitched sounds are fatal to Appoplexians.
- Appoplexians can evolve into Evolved Appoplexians.
- Despite Appoplexians having a strong sense of shame in the original Ben 10 continuity, the reboot series portrays them as being generally naked.
- According to Duncan Rouleau, the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Appoplexian DNA. Therefore, Rath was one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override" before being added to the active playlist.
