AmpFibian (alternatively spelled as Ampfibian)[1] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Amperi from the planet Tesslos in the Andromeda Galaxy.[2]


AmpFibian is a blue jellyfish-like alien with six long tentacles that function as two pairs of arms and a pair of legs.

In Ultimate Alien, AmpFibian had green eyes with no pupils and white swipes on his body, the latter of which resembled 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.

However, because he was fused with Ra'ad in Fused, AmpFibian's eyes were blue instead of green.

In Heroes United, most of the white swipes on AmpFibian's body were missing while the ones that remained were slightly darker.

In Omniverse, AmpFibian looks almost the same as before, except 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, though his body segments are much the same. The lightning streak swipes on his body have also been altered.

Powers and Abilities

  • Electrokinesis
  • Flight
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Stretchable Arms
  • Electrical Absorption
  • Underwater Breathing/Speed Swimming
  • Intangibility
  • Electro-Phasing

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.[3]

AmpFibian has intangibility,[4] and is capable of combining that with his electrokinesis to electrically shock any objects and beings he phases through.[5]

AmpFibian is capable of both flight and underwater breathing, the latter of which allows him to swim at enhanced speeds.[3]

Similar to Buzzshock, AmpFibian can become pure energy in order to enter electrical cables and generate a large energy blast that surrounds him.[4]

AmpFibian's tentacles can extend multiple times their length.[6][7]

AmpFibian's lack of bones allows him to squeeze into extremely tight spaces.

AmpFibian can read both human and Osmosians' thoughts by sensing the electrical pulses of their minds; this feat was only demonstrated by Ra'ad on Kevin.[4][DM 1]

AmpFibian can survive in the vacuum of space and generate a protective energy shield around himself; these feats were both exclusively demonstrated by Ultimate Aggregor during his visit to the Perplexahedron.[8]


  • Vulnerability to Neuroshock Blasts
  • Vulnerabilty to Falling Objects

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, as demonstrated by Ra'ad.[4][DM 2]

AmpFibian's intangibility is useless against other beings that can also become intangible, as it will cancel out their abilities to do so.[9]

AmpFibian is weak against enemies who can drain electricity, like Phil.[10] Furthermore, AmpFibian's electric attacks are useless against Solid Plugg, though the reason why remains unclear.[11]

Since his body is very frail, heavy objects falling on AmpFibian can make him faint.[12]

AmpFibian can be harmed by an Aerophibian's neuroshock blasts.[12]

Turkish AmFibiyan From amfibiyan, Turkish pronunciation of the original name


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, referencing AmpFibian's abilities to absorb, generate, and redirect electrical energy. The word "amphibian" is also used since most are either adapted to water, or generate their own electricity.


  • AmpFibian was named by Len Wein.[MW 1]
  • AmpFibian was the Alien of the Month in September 2011.
  • AmpFibian and the other Andromeda aliens have powers linked to a certain element; for AmpFibian, it's electricity.
  • AmpFibian is the only Andromeda Galaxy alien that Ben used in the same episode he was scanned in.[4]
  • As of Omniverse, AmpFibian and Feedback are the only aliens who generate blue electricity.
