First, some nice cold water! Then, I'll absorb the moisture from the air!

– Water Hazard as he defeats Captain Nemesis.[1]

Water Hazard is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Orishan from the planet Kiusana[merch 1] in the Andromeda Galaxy.

Appearance

Water Hazard appears as a red, mollusk-like alien with green eyes, and a grey mouth that does not move when he speaks. Behind his legs and on the top of his arms are small spikes that are grey, there are black spots on his shoulders and legs, and on his hands, there are portholes, which he uses to shoot water. Water Hazard also has four fingers with claws on them and on each of his feet, there is a grey spike. His lower torso is grey, with two spikes on the side of it.

Water Hazard wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Water Hazard can launch pressurized blasts of water through the portholes in his hands. These blasts normally consist of hot water,[2] though he can change the temperature of his water powers from hot to cold. Using these same portholes, he can absorb moisture, including from the air.[1]

Powers and Abilities

Water Hazard is extremely durable, being able to withstand crashing into a wall seemingly painless.[3] He has an armored exoskeleton that protects his body from damage, including physical attacks, thereby making him completely invulnerable.[4][5]

Water Hazard has enhanced strength, enough to throw Buglizard into a nearby wall[6] and punch craters into a concrete floor.[7]

Water Hazard appears to be immune to gases, as he was unharmed by Buglizard's yellow spray.[6]

Similar to XLR8, Water Hazard has a retractable visor hidden under his hood.[8] His hood is also retractable.[DJW 1]

Water Hazard can produce sharp streams of water and use them as whips.[9]

Water Hazard can jump exceptionally high.[7]

Water Hazard can withstand radiation, such as that generated by a Prypiatosian-B.[10]

Water Hazard can breathe underwater,[DM 1] as demonstrated by Ultimate Aggregor during his visit to Piscciss.[11]

Water Hazard can manipulate different sources of water, including normal Earth water,[ES 1] into a variety of shapes.[7]

Weaknesses

Water Hazard can slip on certain surfaces, such as a Polymorph's goo.[12]

Although his armored exoskeleton allows Water Hazard to feel little to no physical pain, there seems to be a limit to the exoskeleton's durability, as he felt pain from hitting his head against a pipe.[3]

Being thrown can force Water Hazard to fire water blasts uncontrollably.[3]

Water Hazard is vulnerable to energy attacks and intense heat, such as that generated by a Prypiatosian-B.[13][10]

Water Hazard can be frozen by a Necrofriggian's ice breath.[14] Similarly, he can be ensnared by an Evolved Arachnichimp's webs, as demonstrated with Bivalvan.[15]

History

Ultimate Alien

  • In Fame, Water Hazard's DNA was sampled and put in the Codon Stream when the Ultimatrix scanned Bivalvan's DNA.
  • Water Hazard first appeared in Too Hot to Handle, where he pretended to be Bivalvan in a failed attempt to convince P'andor to go home. He was then defeated by P'andor, prompting Water Hazard to switch into Big Chill.
  • In Hero Time, Water Hazard defeated Overlord.
  • In Revenge of the Swarm, Water Hazard briefly battled a Victor Validus clone until it escaped.
  • In Double or Nothing, Water Hazard defeated Swamps, but was defeated and frozen by Fridge, so he switched into NRG.
  • In Night of the Living Nightmare, Water Hazard was seen confronting Albedo in a dream.

Etymology

Water Hazard's name comes from the term "fire hazard", which refers to an action that may cause a fire and water which refers to Water Hazard's water-based abilities. It is also due to the fact that fire is widely considered the opposite to water, which makes his name ironic.


Trivia

  • Each of Ben's Andromeda alien forms control a basic element. As his name suggests, Water Hazard commands water.
  • Water Hazard is the first Andromeda alien Ben has scanned and used.
    • His species is also the first to be scanned by the Ultimatrix.
  • Water Hazard's voice has changed a few times over the course of his appearances:
    • When Water Hazard first appeared in Too Hot to Handle, his voice sounded exactly like Bivalvan's did in Escape from Aggregor and Ultimate Aggregor.
    • Starting in Hero Time, his voice became deeper. The reason for this is that at first Water Hazard was supposed to be a clone of Bivalvan, but later changed to help differ him from Bivalvan.[DM 2]
    • In Omniverse, his voice is slightly modified to sound like that of an underwater human.
  • In Too Hot to Handle, Water Hazard's water was colored aqua green. In the rest of his appearances, it is colored blue like normal Earth water.
  • Water Hazard was designed by Steven Choi.[DJW 2]
  • Before Water Hazard shoots water in Omniverse, the sound of a gun cocking can be heard.
  • Water Hazard was the Alien of the Month in January 2011.
  • In the mobile game Xenodrome and in story books, Water Hazard's name was misspelled as "Waterhazard".
  • In the online games, Game Creator and Omniverse Collection, Water Hazard shoots blobs of water in an upward tilted angle instead of just spraying it. He is also able to create a bubble shield to protect himself from lasers.
