Conductoids have black bodies, a large singular eye, and antennae and tails evoking the appearance of cables due to having plugs on the tips. They have four-fingered hands with similar plugs on the fingertips. They gain bolts on their shoulders, arms, and hips as they age.
Conductoids can have different hair styles using their antennae.
Conductoids feed on eddies and currents of higher-energy particles near protostars.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Conductoids can absorb and redirect energy using the plugs on their antennae, tail, and fingers. They most commonly fire electrical energy that is powerful enough to harm Methanosians, Galvanic Mechamorphs, tangible Ectonurites, and Evolved Vaxasaurians.
Besides electricity, Conductoids can use their powers on other types of energy, including a Crystalsapien's ultraviolet beams, a Terroranchula's webbing, and missiles generated by an evolved Vaxasaurian.
Conductoids can fly by aiming their hands toward the ground, firing streams of electricity in the process.
Conductoids possess enhanced strength, agility, and jumping skills.
Conductoids can temporarily gain enhanced speed while running along a current-carrying path, such as telephone lines.
Due to originating in a nebula rather than a planet, Conductoids can survive in the vacuum of space.
Conductoids need to absorb energy occasionally because the energy they contain will deplete with each use.
A Conductoid's antennae can be easily pulled on, which can both irritate them and leave them stuck in place.
Conductoids cannot stop themselves from shooting their electric energy blasts. Therefore, they will have to resort to shooting it all up in the air to avoid collateral damage if they fail to catch a target.
Culture and society Edit
Conductoids are not social beings. Males of the species are negatively charged, while females are positively charged. If too many Conductoids of the same gender occupy the same area for an extended period of time, the resulting arc could destroy them all. Because the consequences of social groups are so potentially devastating, Conductoids tend to be solitary creatures.
- The Omnitrix's Conductoid representative is named Feedback, who first appeared in the Omniverse episode "The More things Change: Part 1". He was originally unlocked off-screen after the events of the film Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens. Feedback solely appears in Omniverse.
- The Ben Tennyson of Dimension 23 has an equivalent of Feedback (formerly known as Plug Man), who was confirmed to exist in the Omniverse episode "Store 23".
- It is unknown whether Bad Ben, Benzarro, or Nega Ben have Feedback available in their Omnitrixes. However, it has been confirmed that neither Albedo nor Mad Ben can transform into Feedback.
- It was initially believed that a Conductoid's appearance is actually a containment suit. However, the statement was later refuted.
- Conductoids easily travel through Teslavorr, using minute voltage differences between to propel themselves.
- Some believe that Conductoids may be crucial to stellar formation, although that theory has yet to be proven.
- It is confirmed that the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Conductoid DNA. Therefore, Feedback is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
