Bashmouth is the Antitrix's DNA sample of a mutant hybrid between two unnamed species.

Appearance

Bashmouth's appearance is based on a husky. He has bluish grey and cream colored fur, with three sharp claws on each hand and foot. He has a tail that is small. His eyes and the inside of his mouth are red. He wears a dark orange and red armored vest, black pants, black gauntlets, and a iron shoulder pad on his right shoulder.

Bashmouth has the Antitrix symbol in the center of his vest.

Powers and Abilities

Bashmouth's signature ability is his ability to generate metal from various parts of his body. One known example of this is generating scaled armor plates from his forearms that are dense enough to harm Four Arms.[1]

Another way Bashmouth generates metal is though his sharp teeth, which can crunch through concrete. The metal teeth retract over his normal teeth. Even when not using his metal generation, Bashmouth's bare teeth are strong enough to cause Humungousaur discomfort by biting his tail.[2]

Bashmouth is strong and agile enough to easily handle Four Arms and Humungousaur in direct hand-to-hand combat. He can also demolish a building just by roaring.[1]

Weaknesses

Bashmouth is similar to Rath, in the sense that his instincts can take over. For example, the carnivorous aspect of his husky physiology will make him divert his attention to meat.[1] The same thing can happen with sticks.[3]

Despite the durability of his forearm plating, Bashmouth can be harmed by Slapback's durability if the latter duplicates enough times.[3]

Due to Kevin's alterations to the Antitrix, Bashmouth is too powerful for the inexperienced Kevin to currently utilize to the fullest.

History

  • Bashmouth first appeared in Introducing Kevin 11, where he battled Four Arms before helping Humungousaur save people.
  • In My Bodyguard, Bashmouth defeated Humungousaur while under the effects of Zombozo's hypnotism. Once he broke free, he teamed up with Shock Rock to defeat Zombozo.
  • In Heat of the Moment, Bashmouth (acting on his instincts) was distracted by a stick Gwen threw whilst attempting to defeat Ben. He was later defeated by Slapback and was about to battle the Weatherheads before suddenly timing out.
  • In Vin Diagram, Bashmouth battled Rath until both of them were lured by meat to chase Gwen.
  • In You Remind Me of Someone, Bashmouth, who believed that he was Ben (and therefore a hero), attempted to 'save' Gwen. He then battled Rath, thus prompting him to remember his own self.
  • In Roundabout: Part 1, Bashmouth battled Humungousaur until he was tricked into getting struck by a magical attack from Charmcaster.
