Alien Species

The Synthroid are a race of cybernetic robots that destroyed their original organic creators.


The Synthroid are black muscular humanoids with a flat grey face, red, robotic eyes with lines going down them and red lips. They also have a grey plate on their chest with a red circle that has the line going down it.

The Synthroid seems to have no care for living beings and justify their actions with the continued survival of their race, such as kidnapping Verdona and destroying their organic creators.

Powers and Abilities[]

The Synthroid is incredibly strong and can survive extreme environments. They are capable of self-regeneration through the nanobots which make up their bodies. If one of their limbs is severed it can move autonomously until it re-attaches itself to the body. An individual of this species was able to survive falling into a vat of molten metal. They can also produce energy blasts which can do considerable damage.


A Synthroid was destroyed when Max Tennyson destroyed the energy sphere powering its ship. The ship exploded destroying the Synthroid along with it.


In order to power their planet, the Synthroid tried to capture the Anodite Verdona, who could power their planet for years. The Synthroid they dispatched was stopped by Max Tennyson and Magister Labrid of the Plumbers.


  • The Synthroid appears to be very similar to many robots from the 1950s and 60s science fiction. The craft that the Synthroid was flying in bears resemblance to the classic "UFO" design of retro-science fiction.
  • The Synthroid also appears to be based on Skynet from the Terminator franchise. Skynet was an artificial intelligence program that gained sapience and took over Earth, using robots very similar to the Synthroid to destroy its organic creators.
  • The Synthroid bears a passing resemblance to the Combat Androids of the Alien vs. Predator series, mainly in the facial region.
  • It is implied that the Omnitrix contains Synthroid DNA.
