Bullfrag is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Incursean from an unknown and destroyed planet.

Appearance

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 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

  • Long Prehensile Tongue
  • Strong Tongue
  • Sticky Tongue
  • Chest Inflation
  • Enhanced Jumping
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Durability

Bullfrag has powerful jumping abilities and is very agile.

Bullfrag's physique makes him stronger than an average Incursean. He also has impressive hand-to-hand combat abilities.[1]

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.[2] 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.[3]

Bullfrag can inflate his chest to repel enemies and gain momentum to jump.[4]

Bullfrag has enhanced strength, as he was able to carry Bill Gacks in the air without any difficulty.[4]

Bullfrag is more durable than other Incurseans, as he can endure being kicked by a Tetramand.[2]

Bullfrag is capable of withstanding the vacuum of space, but he still needs to breathe to survive. Without an oxygen supply, Bullfrag is limited to holding his breath, as demonstrated by Attea.[5]

Although he has never trained himself to do so, Bullfrag can hold his breath underwater for four to seven hours thanks to his respirators.[DJW 1]

Weaknesses

  • Overstretched Tongue
  • Feelings for Attea

Bullfrag's tongue will hurt if it stretches too long.[3]

Bullfrag has feelings for Attea, which can distract him.[1] Although he thinks she is cute, he is not into her personality.[DJW 2]

Like all Incurseans, Bullfrag is weak to a strong smell, such as that of a Methanosian's swampy stench, as demonstrated with Attea and many Incursean soldiers.[6]

Bullfrag can be immobilized by a Necrofriggian's ice breath, as demonstrated with Milleous.[7]

Bullfrag is vulnerable to pressurized water blasts, such as those generated by an Orishan, as demonstrated by Attea.[5]

Bullfrag can be incapacitated by magic, as also demonstrated by Attea.[1]

Trivia

  • Bullfrag is more muscular and developed than other Incurseans because most members of the species have very poor diets. Bullfrag is an example of an optimal Incursean.[MW 1]
  • Early concept art shows Bullfrag looking more like a typical Incursean.[DJW 3]
    • Bullfrag would originally only wear sunglasses to hide his green eyes, but because the crew liked them so much, they decided to keep Bullfrag always wearing sunglasses.[DJW 4]
  • Bullfrag speaks with a Brooklyn accent.
  • Bullfrag is Ben's most handsome alien.[DJW 5]
  • Bullfrag and Perk Upchuck are the only aliens to have been manually unlocked by entering a code into an Omnitrix.
    • Bullfrag is also one of four aliens to have been unlocked by Azmuth; the others being Way Big, Murk Upchuck, and Atomix.
  • Like frogs, Bullfrag makes a croaking sound after inflating his chest.
  • While Bullfrag is attracted to Attea, the latter has a strong crush on Bullfrag as well.[1][2][MW 2]
    • When Ben blames the attraction on Bullfrag's DNA, it is similar to Albedo blaming his cravings for Chili Fries on Ben's DNA. Curiously, Gwen even made a reference to the similarity, claiming that it is the excuse all boys use.[1]
  • From Arc 4 of Omniverse onwards, Bullfrag replaces Crashhopper in the opening intro of the show, specifically in the part where the latter originally appeared alongside ShocksquatchWay Big, and Bloxx.
  • Bullfrag's voice and mannerisms are based on Sylvester Stallone.
  • Bullfrag's design seems similar to Rash from Battletoads, as both were amphibian superheroes that wore sunglasses.
  • Bullfrag's sunglasses greatly resemble Kamina's sunglasses from Gurren Lagann. However, the design is not a reference to it.[DJW 6]
    • Derrick J. Wyatt had previously designed the Soundwave from Transformers Animated who wore the same glasses, and these were based on 2000 AD's ABC Warriors.
