Cephalod-ae are a squid-like species from Molluskus.


Cephalod-ae are orange, squid-like aliens with green eyes and multiple tentacles.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Cephalod-ae have a powerful grip and incredible crushing abilities. They can also contort into a small space and camouflage in color.

Much like an Earth octopus or squid, the Cephalod-ae can shoot sticky ink that can blind or slow down enemies.


Cephalod-ae have an aversion to strong light and cannot stay out of water for longer than 20 minutes.

Behavior Edit

Cephalod-ae are deeply spiritual as the suckers on their limbs help them "feel" the mana of everything they come into touch thus making Cephalod-ae one of the galaxy's most emphatic and sympathetic races.

Predator Edit

The Cephalod-ae's predatory species are the Humpbackus.

Omnitrix Transformation Edit

The Omnitrix's Cephalod-ae representative is named Squidstrictor, who first appeared in the live-action stage production Ben 10: Power of the Omnitrix. Derrick J. Wyatt would later confirm that Squidstrictor exists in the original Ben 10 continuity, having been unlocked and used off-screen during Omniverse.


Cephalod-ae comes from the word cephalopod.


  • The Cephalod-ae debuted in the live-action stage production Ben 10: Power of the Omnitrix. Wyatt would later canonize the species into the original Ben 10 continuity.
  • According to Duncan Rouleau, the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Cephalod-ae DNA. Therefore, Squidstrictor is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
