– Quadsmack turning into Bashmouth
Bashmouth's appearance is based on a husky or werewolf. 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 an iron shoulder pad on his right shoulder.
While under the influence of Dr. Animo, Bashmouth's eyes were glowing white.
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 a Tetramand.
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 a Vaxasaurian discomfort by biting his tail.
Bashmouth is strong and agile enough to easily handle Four Arms, Rath and Humungousaur in direct hand-to-hand combat.
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. The same thing can happen with sticks.
Despite the durability of his forearm plating, Bashmouth can be harmed by an Ekoplektoid's durability if the latter duplicates enough times.
Bashmouth has a weakness against magic, as shown when he was trapped by one of Charmcaster's spells.
Due to Kevin's alterations to the Antitrix, Bashmouth is too powerful for the inexperienced Kevin to currently utilize to the fullest.
- Bashmouth first appeared in Introducing Kevin 11, where he battled Four Arms before he helped Humungousaur save people from a damaged bridge.
- 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 before he got distracted by a racoon tail flag.
- 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.
- In The Monsters in Your Head, Bashmouth battled Omni-Kix Humungousaur alongside Dr. Animo while under the former's mind control.
- In Bottomless Ben, Bashmouth prepared to battle Humungousaur but was intervened by the tour guide. Later, he became enraged at his armor being scratched and battled Breaker One-Nine, only to then be defeated, and thrown into the bottomless pit.
- In Digital Quality, Bashmouth teamed up with Omni-Kix Slapback to defeat Lord Decibel before he fell asleep when he listened to a CD that he needed to hear.
- In Mock 10, Bashmouth was seen in Kevin's flashback, where he failed to scare some picnickers.
- In Ben 10 Versus the Universe: The Movie, Bashmouth appears twice due to a glitch. He later appears to battle Vilgax. He is then used again to battle Alien V.
