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, launching them in electrical blasts. He can also absorb electrical energy and relaunch attacks, as seen when AmpFibian did so to the Piscciss Volann guards' energy net.
AmpFibian is capable of both flight and underwater breathing, the latter of which allows him to swim at enhanced speeds.
AmpFibian can become pure energy in order to enter electrical cables and generate a large energy blast that surrounds him.
AmpFibian's tentacles can extend multiple times their length.
AmpFibian's lack of bones allows him to squeeze into extremely tight spaces.
Since his body is very frail, heavy objects falling on AmpFibian can make him faint.
- AmpFibian first appeared in Fused, where his DNA was sampled and put in the Codon Stream by sampling Ra'ad's DNA, trapping Ra'ad in the Ultimatrix as well.

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.
