Galvanic Mechamorphs are bio-mechanical lifeforms who were accidentally created by the Galvan scientist Azmuth and inhabit the moon Galvan B.


Galvanic Mechamorphs are a techno-organic species with a gel-like body composed of a nanotechnological fluid metal substance. They have one cyclopean eye in the center of their face. Their bodies are covered entirely in a circuitry pattern that can vary between Mechamorphs. They can be slim, fat, or muscular.

Though humanoid Galvanic Mechamorphs are most common, Mechamorphs resembling animals and plants also exist.

Galvanic Mechamorphs come in different colors including green, blue, purple, yellow, and red.

Powers and Abilities

Galvanic Mechamorphs can merge with technology, and use it as a body. They can upgrade technology into a more advanced stage by doing this. Galvanic Mechamorphs can shoot a powerful laser from their eye.

Galvanic Mechamorphs can shapeshift into technology they have touched at least once. If they are blown apart, they can gather together their remains and reform.

A humanoid Galvanic Mechamorph, such as Baz-El, can spawn a smaller animalistic Galvanic Mechamorph like Ship. However, it is only possible to do so once the larger Mechamorph has absorbed an animal-like Mechamorph.

Galvanic Mechamorphs have the ability to manipulate the environment of Galvan B. They can all morph together and reform Galvan B when it was destroyed.

Galvanic Mechamorphs can merge with organic DNA, thereby creating hybrid Mechamorphs. An example of this occurred when remnants of Upgrade's DNA merged with Ben's human DNA to create Glitch.


The Galvanic Mechamorphs were first brought to life as a complete accident. Galvan B was originally an uninhabited moon, orbiting Galvan Prime. Galvan scientists lead by Azmuth were originally working on a project to make Galvan B habitable, but it went farther than intended when a sentient new species came to life thanks to the Helix.

It did not take long before the first Galvanic Mechamorphs came to join the galactic community and meet their creators in person. Azmuth and the Galvan were surprised by the unexpected result of their experiment on Galvan B. With their help they built a great civilization within days. According to Azmuth, the Galvan and Galvanic Mechamorphs were peaceful neighbors.


While Galvanic Mechamorphs are masters of the mechanical, their merging powers are useless on organic creatures with only the few exceptions being those who already had technology integrated into their organic systems.

Galvanic Mechamorphs are sensitive to magnetic fields and are weak against electricity (being living metal).

Galvanic Mechamorphs are vulnerable against the abilities of a mutated Mechamorph. For example, Malware can absorb and destroy other Mechamorphs whereas Bootleg can fuse with and possess them.

According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Galvanic Mechamorphs can be affected by technorganic viruses.

Omnitrix Transformation

The Omnitrix's Galvanic Mechamorph representative is named Upgrade, who first appeared in the original series episode "Permanent Retirement". Upgrade has appeared in almost every series except Alien Force.

The Ben Tennyson of Dimension 23 has an equivalent of Upgrade named Techno-Bubble, who first appeared in the Omniverse episode "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Ben World: Part 1".

The reboot version of Kevin 11 has a mutant hybrid equivalent of Upgrade named Bootleg, who first appeared in the episode "Franken-Fight".

Upgrade has also been used by the Prime Timeline Kevin, the "What-If" Gwen 10 (albeit off-screen), and the Gwen 10 episode version of Max Tennyson.



  • Galvanic Mechamorphs have no natural predator, apart from Malware, due to the nature of their creation.
