Powers and Abilities
|“||Eat exploding gummy ball thing!||”|
– Ball Weevil to Tyrannopede.
Ball Weevil can spit round, green, sticky balls of plasma[note 1] that absorb matter and explode upon impact, or whenever Ball Weevil wants it to. 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 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.
Ball Weevil's plasma balls are buoyant enough to float on water.[DJW 1]
While he can absorb matter and energy using his plasma, Ball Weevil cannot absorb gases.[DJW 5]
