|Behind the Scenes|
Prypiatosian-Bs are a race of radioactive aliens from Prypiatos, a highly-irradiated planet in the Andromeda Galaxy.
Prypiatosian-Bs are physical humanoid beings that constantly emit a pure radioactive energy around their bodies. They usually wear dark-colored oven-like containment suits to contain their immense irradiation.
Although they are traditionally red, Prypiatosian-Bs can come on other colors. For example, Mad Ben's NRG and Benjamin Franklin's NRG are both orange.
Powers and abilities Edit
The energy that Prypiatosian-Bs radiate enables them to generate intense heat, similar to Pyronite. Because of this, they can melt down solid metal and rock by merely touching it and are immune to radiation and ice, such as that generated by a Necrofriggian.
Prypiatosian-Bs are capable of firing radioactive energy beams from the grills of their containment suits, which is powerful enough to corrode metallic objects and harm Orishan, Aerophibians, and Tetramands.
Prypiatosian-Bs can channel heat through the ground, resulting in a massive geyser of lava.
The containment suits worn by Pryppiatosian-Bs are fireproof, being able to resist a Methanosian's fire attacks. Overall, these containment suits are virtually indestructible against most attacks, making them extremely durable.
Because of the heat they generate, Prypiatosian-Bs can survive in extremely hot and cold environments such as those seen on Mykdl'dy.
When not wearing their containment suits, a Prypiatosian-B's powers are greatly increased. They also gain the abilities of flight and phasing through objects.
Prypiatosian-Bs can absorb other forms of energy, such as an Aerophibian's neuroshock blasts.
Prypiatosian-Bs are immune to being poisoned by lead.
Prypiatosian-Bs constantly give off radiation, making them dangerous to allies. This weakness can be remedied by putting them in a containment suit, but this comes at the cost of greatly reducing a Prypiatosian-B's powers. As such, they are unable to fly while wearing these suits.
A Prypiatosian-B's radioactive beams can be absorbed by an Insectoid's plasma balls.
A Prypiatosian-B's vision is limited because of the shape of their containment suits' helmets, and they can be blinded even further by adhesives.
Hybrid Prypiatosian-Bs can be knocked out by a Pyronite's fireballs.
Culture and society Edit
Prypiatosian-Bs are said to be scavengers that used to live in the irradiated ruins of the once beautiful ancestral Prypiatosian society.
Prypiatosian-Bs speak using Russian accents.
Considered a highly advanced civilization at one point, Prypiatosian-Bs at least have atomic weaponry, as this was how they brought about the end of their once prosperous civilization and left their planet's surface highly irradiated.
Prypiatos was once the marvel of the Andromeda Galaxy, with mega-cities filling entire continents with hundreds of thousands of glittering structures that truly seemed to scrape the sky, but an atomic war put an end to that.
In the aftermath, some of the planet's denizens stayed above ground, unaware of the Prypiatosian-As' underground civilization. Scavenging in the ruins of their once great civilization, these beings were eventually mutated into the highly radioactive Prypiatosian-Bs.
- The Omnitrix's Prypiatosian-B representative is named NRG, who first appeared in the Ultimate Alien episode "The Forge of Creation". He was originally unlocked in "Too Hot to Handle" after the Ultimatrix scanned P'andor. NRG solely appears in Ultimate Alien and Omniverse.
- NRG has also been used by Albedo, the Ben 10 Franklin version of Benjamin Franklin, and Mad Ben.
- The name Prypiatosian is derived from Prypiat, a Ukrainian city where the Chernobyl disaster occurred in 1986.
- It has been confirmed that Atomix's Species is unrelated to the Prypiatosian-Bs.
- It is confirmed that the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Prypiatosian-B DNA. Therefore, NRG is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
