Bullfrag is a humanoid frog-like alien with three-fingered hands and two-toed feet. He is, however, considerably taller, more muscular and paler-skinned than a typical Incursean and has a more defined jawline.
In The Frogs of War: Part 2, Bullfrag first wore a typical black-and-purple Incursean uniform as a disguise. He also wore an Incursean helmet and purple sunglasses.
As of Bengeance Is Mine, Bullfrag wears green sunglasses, a black bodysuit with a green stripe down the middle, fingerless black gloves, toeless black boots with green cuffs above them, and a green belt with a white buckle.
Bullfrag wears the Omnitrix symbol on his upper chest, which was hidden under his suit during The Frogs of War: Part 2.
Powers and Abilities
Bullfrag has powerful jumping abilities and is very agile, much like an ordinary Earth frog.
Bullfrag possesses a long, sticky and prehensile tongue, which he can use as a grappling line or to hit a distant target. It is also very strong, as it can smash boxes. Its tensile strength is high enough to slow down the Billions Tower sign to a near standstill after falling from the top of a skyscraper.
Bullfrag can inflate his chest to repel enemies and gain momentum to jump.
Bullfrag can hold his breath underwater for four to seven hours thanks to his respirators.[DJW 1]
Bullfrag's tongue will hurt if it stretches too long.
Bullfrag requires an oxygen supply to survive. Without it, he is limited to holding his breath while in space, as demonstrated with Attea.
Bullfrag can be incapacitated by magic, as demonstrated with Attea.
- Bullfrag first appeared in The Frogs of War: Part 2, where he was unlocked by Azmuth offscreen and infiltrated the Incursean war fleet to help his team.
- In Bengeance Is Mine, Bullfrag battled some Squid Monsters and saved Bill Gacks from them.
- In Catfight, Ben was forcibly transformed into Bullfrag four times by Attea, who used the Omnitrix Remote Control to do so.
- In Vreedlemania, Bullfrag prevented the Billions Tower logo from harming the nearby civilians.
- In It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Ben World: Part 1, Bullfrag saved some slaves from the falling drill machine with the help of Mr. Monkey.
- In A New Dawn, Bullfrag appeared for a short time when Ben was cycling through his aliens.
- The Frogs of War: Part 2 (first appearance)
- Catfight (x4; unintended transformation)

Being the title alien, Bullfrag is playable in the game.
Before arriving on Earth, Ben, at Azmuth's instruction, needs to acquire Incursean DNA for the Omnitrix in order to prevent the Incurseans from discovering his return from exile. To ensure capable combat prowess, Ben had to acquire a sample from larger Incurseans. Upon unlocking his new Incursean transformation, Ben tries a few names such as "Crazy Legs" and "Aquattack" before settling on Bullfrag.
