Armodrillo is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Talpaedan from the planet Terraexcava in the Andromeda Galaxy.

Appearance

Ben as Armodrillo

Armodrillo is ten feet tall and has a yellow-armored body and looks much like a robot. His head is similar to a Greek Corinthian helmet with two ears on it giving him the appearance of an armadillo. Armodrillo has a gray tail and jackhammer parts on his elbows, wrists and hands, creating the impression that Armodrillo is a digging robot. Despite the mechanical appearance, all of these aspects are in fact biological and natural to his race.

In Omniverse, Armodrillo looks similar to his Ultimate Alien appearance, but his ears are slightly longer, he has grey bolts with black markings on his shoulders and has a metal circle on top of his head. His face has been restructured a little bit, his arm-drills are now much larger, and his feet are now yellow instead of grey while his toes remain grey. His fingers now have a small horizontal line design along with his tail and the black parts of his limbs. His arms, upper arms, and thighs are now more chain-like, and his forearms and shoulder are now much bulkier.

Armodrillo wears the Ultimatrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Albedo as Negative Armodrillo

Negative Armodrillo resembles Armodrillo in Omniverse except his armor, eyes, and Ultimatrix symbol are all recolored red.

Powers and Abilities

  • Enhanced Strength
  • Jackhammer Arm
  • Earthquake Generation
  • Enhanced Digging
  • Shock Waves
  • Drill Hands

Armodrillo has incredible digging capabilities thanks to his jackhammer arms, and can transform his hands into drills.

Armodrillo possesses enhanced durability, courtesy of his armor, and enhanced strength, as he was able to destroy ten robots from Dimension 12[1] and hold his own with Trumbipulor.[2]

Armodrillo can create destructive earthquakes by placing his hands on the ground and pumping the jackhammer pistons on his elbows.

Armodrillo is able to create fissures in the ground.[3]

Using his jackhammer arms, he can create shock waves and can launch objects he is holding.

Weaknesses

  • Vulnerability to Electricity
  • Out-of-Control Vibration

Even though Armodrillo's armor is highly durable, it is not strong enough to keep Argit's spikes or Zombozo's bowling pins from hurting him.[2]

Psyphon used a weapon that caused Armodrillo's nervous system to go out of control, making him unable to stop vibrating his left arm.[4]

Electricity can stop him from moving and even knock him out.
