Ball Weevil using his plasma ball

Ball Weevil can spit round, green, sticky balls of plasma,[1] that absorb matter and explode upon impact, or when Ball Weevil wants.[2] The size of these balls depend on how much matter they absorb. Ball Weevil's plasma balls can be in more shapes than just spheres.

Ball Weevil can spew out plasma in a controllable stream to act like rope to tie up an enemy. The plasma is strong enough to momentarily hold Princess Looma. His plasma balls have shown to not only absorb matter to enlarge, but can absorb energy too,[3] seen when he absorbed both Leander's radiation and Swift's neuroshock blasts into one of his globules.

Ball Weevil has enhanced agility, being able to roll on his plasma balls and can climb on walls with ease.

Ball Weevil seems to be pretty strong for his size,[1] seen when he stopped his giant plasma ball rolling at a high speed.


Ball Weevil can be hurt by his own plasma balls if they are reflected at him. He can also get stuck in his own plasma.

Ball Weevil's goo balls can be neutralized by Terroranchula's energy webs. Ball Weevil can also be trapped in Terroranchula's webs.
