In Ultimate Alien, AmpFibian was a blue jellyfish-like alien with six long tentacles that functioned as two pairs of arms and a pair of legs. AmpFibian had green eyes with no pupils and white swipes on his body, resembling lightning streaks. His main body had three segmented, skirt-like parts, one for his head, chest and abdomen. AmpFibian wore the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.
In Omniverse, AmpFibian looks almost the same except that the Omnitrix symbol is now on his mouth and his green eyes are larger with the black outlining in them becoming much more prominent. His fins are now pointed instead of curved (His body segments are much the same). The lightning streak swipes on his body have been altered.
Powers and Abilities
AmpFibian can manipulate and produce lightning and electricity. He can launch them in electrical blasts, and as of Cosmic Destruction he is capable of generating a large energy blast surrounding him. He can also absorb electrical energy and relaunch attacks, as seen in Deep, when AmpFibian did so to the Piscciss Volann guards' energy net. AmpFibian can also become pure energy in order to enter electrical cables.
AmpFibian has the ability to become intangible. He is capable of combining that with his electrokinesis to electrically shock objects and beings he phases through.
AmpFibian is capable of flight.
AmpFibian's tentacles can extend multiple times their length.
AmpFibian's lack of bones allows him to squeeze into extremely tight spaces.
AmpFibian is capable of respiring underwater and swimming at enhanced speeds.
AmpFibian can use his electricity underwater, but if he is using electricity while entering water, or only part of him is in the water, he will shock himself.[DM 2]
Since his body is very frail, heavy objects falling on him can make him faint.
AmpFibian's electric attacks are useless against Solid Plugg.

AmpFibian's name is a portmanteau of the words amper and amphibian (with the "ph" changed to a "pF"). It is also a pun off the word “amplify” (amp for short) which means to charge and increase energy, which AmpFibian’s species can do by absorbing, generating, and redirecting electrical energy. The word “amphibian” is also used since most are either adapted to water, or generate their own electricity.

- AmpFibian is the only Andromeda Galaxy alien that Ben used in the same episode he was scanned in.
