|Behind the Scenes|
Galvanic Mechamorphs are bio-mechanical lifeforms who were accidentally created by the Galvan scientist Azmuth and inhabit Galvan Prime's 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.
Humanoid Mechamorphs can be depicted as slim, fat, or muscular and while these are most commonly seen specimen, Mechamorphs resembling animals and plants also exist.
Mechamorphs come in different colors including green, blue, purple, yellow, and red.
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.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Galvanic Mechamorphs can merge with and possess technology, upgrading into a more advanced stage. They can shapeshift into technology they have touched, but only if they have come into contact with it at least once.
If a Mechamorph is blown apart, they can gather together their remains and reform their bodies due to being made of living metal. Being inorganic, they can also survive in the vacuum of space.
By energizing their biomechanical blood, Mechamorphs can shoot a powerful laser beam from their cyclopean eyes.
A humanoid Mechamorph such as Baz-El can spawn a smaller animalistic Mechamorph like Ship. However, it is only possible to do so once the larger Mechamorph has absorbed an animal-like Mechamorph.
Mechamorphs have the ability to manipulate the environment of Galvan B by merging with each other. This has been done when Galvan B was reborn after being destroyed by Malware.
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.
Due to the alterations Kevin Levin has made to the Antitrix, Bootleg is more powerful than ordinary Mechamorphs. He is also capable of merging with technology that has already have been merged with another Mechamorph.
While 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.
Mechamorphs are sensitive to magnetic fields and are weak against electricity (being living metal).
Ordinary 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 Alex Soto, Mechamorphs are weak against acid.
According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Mechamorphs can be affected by technorganic viruses.
Omnitrix Transformation Edit
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.
- Though most Mechamorph Omnitrix transformations share the same voice as their users, the reboot version of Upgrade speaks with a voice that is completely different from Ben's.
