Chamalien (alternatively spelled as ChamAlien) is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Merlinisapien from an unknown planet.

Appearance

Ben as Chamalien

Chamalien has a slim body that resembles a large purple salamander with darker purple camo-esque spots all over his body and a short tail. He has three triangular eyes; the left being blue, the right red and the middle green, but the red and blue eyes are the only ones that blink, while the green eye doesn't. The top of his head is purple-black, with a spike-shaped fin on the back of his head. He has four-fingered hands and three toes on his frog-like feet. He also has a wide mouth with sharp teeth.

Chamalien wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Albedo as Negative Chamalien

Negative Chamalien looks just like Chamalien except all of his eyes are red and is missing the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

Albedo as ChamAlien

Camouflage

Chamalien's main ability is his camouflage, as he is capable of blending in with the color of his surroundings with such effectiveness that he appears invisible.

Chamalien is very agile, quick, flexible and can climb walls with ease. He also had sharp teeth and claws.

Chamalien's body is highly slippery and smooth, making him very difficult to grab.[1]

Chamalien has a long, retractable black barb that can come out of the tip of his tail.[1]

Chamalien has enhanced strength and durability, enough to push a car and a huge truck several yards away and defeat a Vulpimancer in battle.[1]

Chamalien's differently colored eyes allow him to see other Merlinisapiens when they are invisible.[DJW 1]

Weaknesses

Although Chamalien appears to turn invisible when he camouflages himself, he actually just changes his color. Consequently, his shadow can still be seen and any place filled with too many bright lights can be a disadvantage.

Although it has never been shown and only demonstrated through Subdora, Chamalien's camouflage is useless if he is either carrying something or coated in another material, like paint or dust.

Chamalien can easily be tracked by Vulpimancers using their enhanced senses.[1][2] He can also be tracked by Anodites through his Mana.[3]

Due to his eyes, Chamalien is unable to appear invisible to other Merlinisapiens.[DJW 1]
