The Fulminis are a energy/silicon-based species from the planet Fulmas.
Fulmini are made entirely of blue electrical Omni-Enhanced energy, and are reinforced by grey rock armor that gives them a green moss-like pattern near the top of their bodies.
While under the influence of their leader, the High Override, their bodies become lilac and their eyes become red.
Powers and abilities
Similar to Conductoids, Fulmini can release strong charges of electrical Omni-Enhanced energy from any part of their bodies. Technically speaking, Omni-Kix Fulmini are more powerful than their regular counterparts because their Omni-Kix armor can conduct electricity.
Fulmini can use their Omni-Enhanced energy to construct various weapons including boomerangs, chainsaws, swords, spears, hammers, and machetes. This energy has also been used to construct tools such as shields, lassos, slingshots, battering rams, and bicycles.
Fulmini can absorb external sources of energy, such as a Chimera Sui Generis' optical lasers.
Using their Omni-Enhanced energy, Fulmini can power up machines and enlarge portals to about their size.
Fulmini are durable thanks to their seemingly indestructible stone armor, as they can survive being thrown through multiple buildings or beaten over the head with a cement truck. For Omni-Kix and Omni-Naut Fulmini, their natural durability is increased thanks to their respective armors.
Fulmini possess enhanced strength, enough to easily lift a car.
Fulmini can manipulate the weather to the point of being able to create a massive storm.
Fulmini can generate wormholes to different planets and other dimensions, such as Earth and the Null Void. They also alter the size of existing wormholes using their Omni-Enhanced energy.
Fulmini can jump over great distances. In the case of Omni-Kix Fulmini, they can boost themselves to jump even further.
While under the control of the High Override, a Fulmini's power is boosted to the point where they could destroy an entire planet.
Omni-Kix Fulmini have a powerful energy spire that absorbs power from across the universe.
Omni-Naut Fulmini can fly using their jetpacks, survive in the vacuum of space, and breathe underwater thanks their Omni-Naut Armor.
Fulmini are vulnerable to any being or machine that can absorb Omni-Enhanced energy, such as the High Override.
Fulmini are vulnerable to being brainwashed and stripped of their free will by the High Override.
The output of a Fulmini's Omni-Enhanced energy can be so immense that they can accidentally overload and destroy any piece of technology that uses primarily uses electricity.
A Fulmini's constructs can unintentionally electrocute other beings who come in contact with them, including Humans.
Similar to Amperi, a Fulmini's attacks are ineffective against rubber-like materials and species with electricity immunity.
Long ago, the Fulmini fought amongst themselves over the energy that Fulmas held until their planet began to fall apart. In the aftermath of the conflict, the united Fulmini began to wage war against the rest of the universe. They would use wormholes to travel to nearby planets in order to plunder their energy and use it to restore Fulmas to its former strength.
The Fulmini attempted to invade Earth only to be stopped by Ben Tennyson, his cousin Gwen, their grandfather Max, and the hybrid Mechamorph Glitch. During the conflict, the Chimera Sui Generis known as Vilgax made an unsuccessful attempt to betray Ben and Glitch and steal the Omnitrix for himself that resulted in him being sent to the Null Void by the High Override.
The Fulmini once invaded Petropia to harvest the resources to restore Fulmas, only to be forced into retreat by a three-way alliance between the Surface Petrosapiens, the Subsapiens, and the Antrosapiens.
With Fulmas destroyed, the Fulmini invaded Khoros using their mothership Fulmas II but were forced to leave once they found out the planet was populated with predators of the Tetramands.
- The Omnitrix's Fulmini representative is named Shock Rock, who first appeared in the reboot episode "The 11th Alien: Part 1". He was originally unlocked after Ben upgraded the Omnitrix using Upgrade in "Omni-Tricked: Part 4".
- The Fulmini were conceived to introduce a cosmic threat outside of Vilgax. This explains why Shock Rock has taken priority over other electrokinetic aliens from previous series.
- Despite only appearing in the reboot continuity, Fulmini have been confirmed to exist in the original Ben 10 continuity. However, Shock Rock's DNA is currently not in the Omnitrix as of Omniverse.
- As shown in the opening for Season 2, Shock Rock has replaced Upgrade in the active playlist.
