Ball Weevil (alternatively spelled as Ballweevil)[1] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an unnamed species from an unknown planet.


Ball Weevil is a small yellow insect-like alien with black eyes and green pupils. He has four stick legs and a beak along with a big antenna.

Ball Weevil wears the Omnitrix symbol on a green and white brace around his neck.

Powers and Abilities

  • Explosive Plasma Ball Generation
  • Plasma Whip
  • Plasma Imprisonment
  • Enhanced Dexterity
  • Enhanced Balancing
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Enhanced Jumping
  • Enhanced Agility
  • Enhanced Speed
  • Bipedalism
  • Wall Climbing
  • Matter Absorption (via Plasma Balls)
  • Energy Absoprtion (via Plasma Balls)

Ball Weevil can spit round, green, sticky balls of plasma[2][3] that absorb matter and explode upon impact, or whenever Ball Weevil wants it to.[4] The size of these balls depends on how much matter they absorb.

Ball Weevil's plasma balls can be in more shapes than just spheres. The bigger the ball he creates, the larger the explosion.

Ball Weevil can spew out plasma in a controllable stream to act as a rope to tie up an enemy. The plasma is strong enough to momentarily hold a Tetramand.[4]

Ball Weevil's plasma balls can absorb energy, as seen when he absorbed both a Prypiatosian-B's radioactive energy blasts and an Aerophibian's neuroshock blasts into one of his globules.[5]

Ball Weevil has enhanced agility and balance, 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, as shown when he stopped his giant plasma ball rolling at a high speed.[3]


  • Ineffective Plasma Balls
  • Vulnerability to Plasma
  • Trapped in Plasma
  • Trapped by Terroranchula

Ball Weevil can be hurt by his own plasma balls if they are reflected at him.[6] He can also get stuck in his own plasma.[4]

Ball Weevil is vulnerable to being trapped by a member of Terroranchula's species, as shown when he was caught in one of Terroranchula's energy webs.[7]

Ball Weevil's plasma can be neutralized by a Terroranchula's webs.[6] It is also useless against a species capable of withstanding it, such as Arburian Pelarotas.[DJW 1]
