The Arburian Pelarotas are a generally peaceful race of pillbug-like aliens from the planet Arburia.
Typically slow, clumsy, and awkward, Arburian Pelarotas have soft flesh that is covered by a nearly invulnerable shell. There are two or three large plates on the back, two round or hexagon-shaped plates on the shoulders, one on each forearm, and one on each hip. Their mouth is wide and consists of blacks lips and either Human-like or piranha-like teeth. They also have four claw-like digits on their hands and three on each foot.
Female Arburian Pelarotas are similar to males, but have a slimmer torso and pelvis, smaller exo-plates on their bodies, feminine lips, and feminine eyes.
Arburian Pelarotas are preyed on by Arburian Carcharodons: shark-like creatures that are colloquially known as the "Beasts with a Billion Teeth".
Powers and abilities
While either at play or when confronted by aggression, Arburian Pelarotas can roll up into a giant armadillo-like ball and become something akin to motorized wheels that can move at great speed. This is because of chemicals in their exo-plates that reduce friction.
With their tremendous mass, Arburian Pelarotes can ricochet at incredibly high speeds like a pinball, increase their agility, create shockwaves, and generate fierce tornadoes by spinning.
Despite their race having top-heavy bodies, Arburian Pelarotas possess enhanced reaction timing and balance. Collectively, this means they can quickly change in and out of ball form to suit their immediate needs.
Arburian Pelarotas possess enhanced reflexes at a level higher than Kinecelerans. They also possess enhanced dexterity, being able to stop themselves from falling using their sharp claws.
Arburian Pelarotas have nigh-invulnerable shells capable of deflecting lasers and withstanding both acids and lava. For Omni-Enhanced Arburian Pelarotas, their natural durability is increased thanks to their rock-like armor. Similarly, Omni-Kix Arburian Pelarotas are more durable thanks to their Omni-Kix armor.
In correlation with their durability, Arburian Pelarots can withstand extreme friction experienced whenever something reenters a planet's atmosphere. Their shells can also withstand the plasma generated by Insectoids.
In their sphere form, Arburian Pelarotas seem to be capable of perceiving their surroundings despite their eyes being covered by their shell. They can also house other beings, as well as fairly large objects, within their spheroid form.
Arburian Pelarotas are capable of withstanding the vacuum of space for a limited amount of time. Therefore, they are required to hold their breath while in space.
Due to the alterations Kevin Levin has made to the Antitrix, Wreckingbolt is more powerful than ordinary Arburian Pelarotas. His armor is covered with spikes, making himself even more durable and allowing himself to make more destructive crashes when in sphere form. He is also capable of burrowing underground.
Omni-Enhanced Arburian Pelarotas gain an increase in the impact of their attacks from Omni-Enhanced energy, which also provides a charge whilst rolling in sphere form and leaves two blue light trails from the spikes on their sides while doing so. The spikes running along their rock armor can be fired out as explosive missiles.
Omni-Kix Arburian Pelarotas become a lot more powerful in sphere form thanks to the Omni-Kix armor.
Arburian Pelarotas are subjected to the physical laws of reflection and conservation of momentum, meaning that they have difficulty stopping or controlling their direction if they picks up too much speed. This is especially seen with Wreckingbolt, whose movements in sphere mode can easily throw him off balance simply by rolling too fast.
An Arburian Pelarota's bipedal form is top-heavy, making them very unbalanced and clumsy because their race is made to spin rather than walk like most other sapient species.
Arburian Pelarotas can occasionally emit some sort of odor that people housed in their spheroid form can find repulsive.
Arburian Pelarotas can be held in place by either adhesives or beings with strength at a level similar to a Chimera Sui Generis.
Arburian Pelarotas cannot roll on slippery surfaces, such as a Gourmand's slime.
Arburian Pelarotas can be affected by magic, as there is a spell that can constrain them in the terrain they stand on.
Culture and society
With many resources and an ideal climate, the Arburian Pelarotas live in harmony. Arburia itself is considered a vacation spot by many other species. However, the Arburian Pelarotas often have to deal with troublemaking tourists.
Adult Arburian Pelarotas are dictated to the education and safety of the young, who would rather play outside than focus on their studies. In short, once school is over, the kids go straight to the beaches in a flash. A few adults stick around for lifeguard duty while beachgoers enjoy the extreme way of fun.
Arburian Pelarotas get around in Gyrosphere-like cars and use special boats for fun. They also have massive turrets used in lifeguarding.
One week prior to Ben Tennyson's discovery of the Omnitrix transformation Cannonbolt, Arburia was destroyed by an entity known as "The Great One". Because of this, the Arburian Pelarotas are believed to be extinct.
There exists an alternate timeline in which the Great One does not appear to exist. Therefore, Arburia is left intact and the Arburian Pelarotas are thriving.
- The Omnitrix's Arburian Pelarota representative is named Cannonbolt, who first appeared in the original series episode "The Big Tick". Cannonbolt has appeared in every series.
- The Ben Tennyson of Dimension 23 has an equivalent of Cannonbolt named Rollaway, who first appeared in the Omniverse episode "Store 23".
- The reboot version of Kevin 11 has a mutant hybrid equivalent of Cannonbolt named Wreckingbolt, who first appeared in the episode "This One Goes To 11".
- Cannonbolt has also been used by Ben 10,000, a Plant Clone, No Watch Ben, the Gweniverse Gwen 10, and the reboot version of Max Tennyson.
- The name of this species is based on Pelota, which is Spanish for "Ball", and Rota, a play on the word "rotation".
- An Arburian Pelarota's sphere form is similar to the Morph Ball ability used by Samus Aran from the Metroid franchise. Meanwhile, their spin attacks are based off the Godzilla monster, Anguirus.
