|Behind the Scenes|
The Ectonurites are a race of ghostly aliens from the planet Anur Phaetos in the Anur System.
Ectonurites are ghost-like aliens with a frightening skeletal appearance which is concealed by their second skin layers. Their individual eyes can move to any part of the body giving 360° sight. They have exposed bones in certain places.
Without their secondary skin, they have dark blue skin, sharp teeth and claws, and skulls that they can reposition physically or mentally.
An Ectonurite's powers are composed of several aspects of traditional ghosts from myths and lore such as flight, levitation, phasing through solid matter, intangibility, invisibility, and body possession.
Whenever an Ectonurite possesses another lifeform, they gain access to their hosts' natural powers.
Because they are alive in an unconventional sense, Ectonurites can survive in the vacuum of space. In fact, the darkness of space allows them to use their powers at their fullest potential
Ectonurites can open up their secondary skin to release scary tentacles. They can also projecting energy beams from their chests, even when at their full potential.
Ectonurites are capable of telekinetic abilities in which their hands are surrounded by a glowing bluish-purple aura.
Ectonurites have the remarkable ability to be remade from a molecule of DNA.
Like the other races in the Anur System, Ectonurites are immune to the effects of Corrodium.
Exposure to direct sunlight or something as bright as a Fusion Cuisine generated by Atomix's Species can destroy an Ectonurite unless they have a secondary skin. Meanwhile, the light generated by a Prypiatosian-B can only harm them.
Ectonurites can be harmed by magic.
Certain substances can neutralize an Ectonurite's intangibility and invisibility, such as a special orange liquid used by Kraab.
There are certain beings Ectonurites are unable to possess. For example, they cannot possess zombies because they lack minds of their own.
According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Ectonurites cannot survive on Anur Vladias.
Omnitrix Transformation Edit
The Omnitrix's Ectonurite representative is named Ghostfreak, who first appeared in the original series episode "Permanent Retirement". Ghostfreak has appeared in almost every series except the reboot.
If the reboot version of Kevin 11 were to have a mutant hybrid equivalent of Ghostfreak, he would be named Phantomgeek.
Ghostfreak has also been used by the Prime Timeline Kevin (albeit off-screen) and Bad Ben.
- Ectonurites speak with eerie and creepy voices. It is said they are one of the most frightening races in the Milky Way, though not as frightening as Toepick's Species.
- In the trivia version of the original series episode "Be Afraid of the Dark", it is stated that the Ectonurites use their ghost-like powers to slowly become rulers of every planet in the Anur System. This has been retconned in Omniverse, as Anur Transyl does not appear to have a ruler.
- According to Duncan Rouleau, the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Ectonurite DNA. Therefore, Ghostfreak is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
