Transylians are an extraterrestrial species of Frankenstein's Monster-like humanoids from the planet Anur Transyl. They are one of several races under the command of the Ectonurites.


Physiology Edit

Transylians are a human-like species which resemble Frankenstein's monster. They are made of several different body parts stitched together, as well as various electrical generating equipment and life support technology.


Transylians are capable of shooting electric bursts from either their hands or the metallic-organic generator-like growths on their backs.

Transylians can attach to metal surfaces using electromagnetism.

Transylians can survive in the vacuum of space, likely due to their undead-like nature.

Transylians are immune to intense heat, and possess enhanced strength, durability, and dexterity.

Like the other races in the Anur System, Transylians are immune to the effects of Corrodium.

Weaknesses Edit

Transylians can be harmed by the impact of the electrical attacks of their own brethren.

As their generator-like growths are the source of their electricity, opponents can absorb electricity through them.

Certain Transylians are unable to fit through small or tight spaces.

Transylians can be controlled by a Vladat's Corrupturas.

Culture Edit


Depending on the individual, Transylians have a myriad of personalities, though according to Viktor, they commonly share a hatred of Vladats, due to being enslaved by them and used ultimately as food in the past. They are also not too friendly towards other-worlders outside the Anur System and view them as monsters.


Anur Transyl used to be home of two different races: the Transylians and the Vladats. The Transylians were the Vladats' main source of food until the Transylians rebelled against the Vladats, using superior technology that they had developed in secret, they hunted all Vladats on Anur Transyl into utter extinction and became the dominant species on Anur Transyl. Like the other inhabitants of the Anur System, Transylians have become enslaved by the Ectonurites.

Omnitrix Transformation Edit

The Omnitrix's Transylian representative is named Frankenstrike (formally known as Benviktor), who first appeared in the original series episode "Be Afraid of the Dark" after Dr. Viktor touched the Omnitrix. Frankenstrike solely appears in the original series and Omniverse.

The Ben Tennyson of Dimension 23 has an equivalent of Frankenstrike named Lightning Volt, who first appeared in the Omniverse episode "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Ben World: Part 2".

Frankenstrike has also been used by Benzarro.


The name Transylian is a play on Transylvania.


Notes Edit

  • According to Duncan Rouleau, the Omnitrix from the Ben 10 reboot contains Transylian DNA. Therefore, Frankenstrike is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
