Oryctini are a species of voracious humanoid insect-like aliens from the planet Celeop Terra.
Oryctini are dark blueish-purplish and light blue robotic humanoids that have long horns connected to a shorter horn at the back of their heads and large metallic mouths that spread over part of their chests.
In Omniverse, Oryctini are more insect-like with their horns having forks at the top to evoke the appearance of Japanese rhinoceros beetles. They are gray, green, and dark green in color.
Similar to Gourmands, Oryctini can eat materials and convert their matter into energy. However, unlike the Gourmands, Oryctini shoot green laser beams out of a slot on their horns. The horns can also be used as battering rams.
According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Oryctini have an unnamed frog-like predator.
Omnitrix Transformation Edit
The Omnitrix's Oryctini representative is named Eatle, who first appeared in the Ultimate Alien episode "A Knight to Remember". Eatle solely appears in Ultimate Alien and Omniverse.
- The name of this species is never stated in the series itself, but the placeholder name "Oryctini" comes from the bio for Eatle from the alien gallery special feature of the Ultimate Alien DVD "The Ultimate Enemy".
- Despite the confirmed existence of a predator, it was scrapped during the production of Omniverse.
- According to Duncan Rouleau, the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Oryctini DNA. Therefore, Eatle is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
