Alien Species

The Thep Khufans are a race of mummy-like aliens from the desert planet Anur Khufos in the Anur System.[1]



Thep Khufans are mummy-like creatures composed entirely of organic bandages made from an alien material that feels like old cloth but have elasticity.[2] They have thousands of tendrils stemming from their hard yet removable heads.[3] Their bodies are thin, hollow, and humanoid-shaped with slight ape-like features on their limbs. They also have a pair of bandages dangling from their upper backs.

There are gaps between the bandages on a Thep Khufan's wrists, chest and ankles that glow in any color. They have eyes that glow in the same color as their gaps. They have beak-like toothed mouths with long tongues beneath their head bandages. Some Thep Khufans have bandages that stick out from their heads like hair.

Powers and abilities[]

Being composed of bandages, Thep Khufans can reshape their bodies at will. This allows them to split themselves apart to dodge attacks, reform themselves to counter-attack, and generate more bandages for various needs.

A Thep Khufan's body is completely hollow, making them extremely flexible and allowing them to store things in their chest. They can also regenerate themselves if any part of their body takes damage.

Although Thep Khufans are frail, they possess a degree of enhanced strength, allowing them to punch away a Squid Monster with ease. Similarly, they can lift objects and people as big as a Segmentasapien with their stretchable limbs.

Thep Khufans can ensnare opponents with even the combined strengths of a Tetramand and a Vaxasaurian using their bandages.

Thep Khufans are rather durable, being able to withstand being thrown around by a Loboan and deflecting lasers using their bandages.

By reducing their bodies down to single bandages, Thep Khufans can slip through extremely tight spaces or small openings, allowing them to escape various traps or maneuver through cramped areas before reforming afterwards.

Because of their composition, Thep Khufans can breath underwater and survive in the vacuum of space.

Thep Kufans can probably fling themselves up in the air by grabbing two surfaces.[2]

Similar to Petrosapiens, Thep Kufans can extend their arms to superhuman lengths. They may also fold their hands like origami and shape them into weapons, though it would be like hitting someone with a paper Mache boulder.[2]

Like the other races in the Anur System, Thep Khufans are immune to the effects of Corrodium and can see in the dark.[2] Furthermore, they can contain pieces of Corrodium in their torsos, which in turn protects other beings from being mutated.

Thep Khufans can train themselves to perform magic similar to Egyptian curses.[2]


Thep Khufans can be tangled up in their own bandages. There is also an upper limit to how much tension said bandages can withstand before breaking.

Thep Khufans are incredibly light, meaning that can be easily blown away by strong winds. They are also very fragile, meaning that they can be torn to pieces.

Thep Khufans can be frozen by liquid nitrogen and semi-permanently destroyed by fire.

Despite being able to breathe underwater, Thep Khufans can become waterlogged from too much exposure to liquids.

Like other living beings, Thep Kufans can be controlled by a Vladat's Corrupturas.

Thep Kufans can experience fear in the presence of Toepick's Species.[2]

Culture and society[]

Thep Khufans live in deep, dark structures to keep themselves away from Anur Khufos' heat and wind.[3] They are one of several races under the command of the Ectonurites.

The more well-off Thep Khufans sleep in sarcophagi, while the poorer ones are unable to afford them. Therefore, sarcophagi are a kind of status symbol among the Thep Khufan wealthy elite.[2]

The Thep Khufans seen on Anur Transyl do not appear to be friendly towards beings from outside the Anur System and view them as monsters.

Thep Khufan clothing resembles that of ancient Egyptians, consisting of Wadjet headpieces on their foreheads that cover all but their noses and mouths, dhoti-like garments on their waists, collars, and cuffs on their feet and wrists.

Some Thep Khufans wear headdresses and tall hats that are somewhat similar to the Crowns of Egypt and the Nefertiti's Cap Crown.


Thep Khufans speak using somewhat filtered voices.


Kuphulu is the leader of a Dagon worshipping cult on Anur Transyl. This is justified by his temple having tentacles running up the walls.[2]

Notable members[]

  • Snare-oh: An Omnitrix transformation used by Ben Tennyson.
    • Snare-oh (Ben 10,000 Timeline): An alternate adult version of Snare-oh used by the original Ben 10,000.
    • Negative Snare-oh: An alternate version of Snare-oh used by Albedo.[2]
    • Benzarro Snare-oh: An alternate version of Snare-oh used by Benzarro.
  • Kuphulu: A Thep Kufan, one of Zs'Skayr's loyal servants and the inhabitant of Anur Transyl.
  • Mummy Alien: One of Zs'Skayr's loyal servants, Kuphulu's predecessor and Null Void Prisoner.


  • Kevin 11 2.0: 12-year-old Kevin Levin of the Prime Timeline transformed into an amalgamation of Ben Tennyson's second set of 10 aliens, including Snare-oh.
  • Anur-Mirrored Charmcaster: A mirror clone of Charmcaster comprised of Thep Khufan and Human DNA.



  • Thep Khufans are the only beings who can handle Corrodium without special protection,[4] unless other Anur System races are counted.
  • The Mummy Alien was initially considered to be Snare-oh's genetic donor. This has been changed in Ultimate Alien, as Thep Khufan DNA was already in the Omntrix and that Ben Tennyson misunderstood what was happening when it "sampled" the Mummy Alien's DNA.[5]
  • Whenever Thep Khufans stretch their bandages out, a moaning sound can be heard.
  • Like ancient mummies, Kuphulu's temple resembles the inside of Egyptian pyramids and tombs, complete with statues, wall paintings and hieroglyphs.
  • In 2020, Derrick J. Wyatt released a full-color model of an alternate version of Snare-oh used by Albedo.
  • It is confirmed that the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Thep Khufan DNA.[6] Therefore, Snare-oh is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
