Cannonbolt is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Arburian Pelarota from the planet Arburia.


Ben as Cannonbolt

Cannonbolt is a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural, yellow armor plating on his back, shoulders, and the backs of his arms. He is predominantly white, with black on his upper half. He also has four white claws protruding from both of his paws. He has green eyes and considerably small, yet sharp teeth.

In Don't Laze Me, Bro, Cannonbolt wore black boots with two horizontal glowing pink lines on each one and a purple and pink wig on his head. He also had black horizontal lines under his eyes, four lime green star-shaped tattoos on the armor plating covering the back of his arms and a smaller yellow one on his forehead.

Cannonbolt wears the Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Max as Cannonbolt

Max as Cannonbolt looks roughly similar to Ben's, only he has Max's hair on his forehead and a potbelly.

Powers and Abilities

  • Sphere Transformation
  • Enhanced Speed (via Spherical Form)
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Durability

Cannonbolt can curl into a ball, encasing himself in his plating. When rolled up, Cannonbolt becomes like a motorized wheel that can move at great speed and can increase his rotational momentum to slam into and/or run over enemies. He can also ricochet and bounce off surfaces in this form. He can even use his sphere form to increase his agility by quickly opening up his ball shape while airborne.

He also seems to be capable of perceiving his surroundings despite his eyes being covered and encased inside his sphere form.

Despite his top heavy body, Cannonbolt has enhanced reaction time, reflexes, dexterity, and balance, allowing him to quickly change in and out of sphere form to suit his immediate needs.

Cannonbolt's shell is resistant to acids and lava, and can deflect lasers.

Cannonbolt also possesses enhanced strength.


Cannonbolt is subjected to the physical laws of reflection and conservation of momentum, meaning that he has difficulty stopping or controlling his direction if he picks up speed.

Cannonbolt's bipedal form is top-heavy, making him very unbalanced and clumsy, though he can still manage to use his curled shape to enhance his agility.

Cannonbolt can be held in place by species with as much or more strength than a Chimera Sui Generis.[1]

Cannonbolt cannot roll on sand or slippery surfaces, the latter of which has been demonstrated by Wreckingbolt.[2]
