Astrodactyl is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an unknown species from the planet Terradino.


Astrodactyl resembles a cross between a Pterodactyl and a glider. He has a large yellow beak-like mouth, green eyes, red skin, black and green clothing on his shoulders and waist, green braces around his wrists and ankles, and small, yellow, retractable wings that resemble a glider in appearance which are connected to a 'jetpack'-like structure on his back.

Astrodactyl wears the Omnitrix symbol on his left shoulder.

Powers and Abilities

  • Flight (via jetpack)
  • Propulsion Blast
  • Energy Whip
  • Energy Beams

Astrodactyl is capable of flying through the aid of his 'jetpack', and with his retractable wings proving stability for this ability. He can create a propulsion blast from his jetpack using some kind of internalized star power to enhance his flight.[DJW 2]

Astrodactyl's star power can be used to create different forms of weapons,[DJW 2] the most common weapon being energy whips. He can also use his star power to fire an energy beam from his mouth.[1]

Astrodactyl can survive in the vacuum of space.[2][DJW 3]

Astrodactyl was shown to have a degree of enhanced strength, as he was able to rip off goo that was difficult for Ben and Rook to escape from[3] and pull one of the Techadon Robots tied up to his energy whips.[4] He is also able to carry a Cerebrocrustacean without the aid of his jetpack.[1]


Astrodactyl is very reliant on his jetpack for flying, meaning that if it somehow gets damaged, he would be at a disadvantage.

Astrodactyl is vulnerable to electricity.[1]
