Chromastone is a silicon-based alien made of extremely durable crystal. His body is overall purple, with several dark lines and spots. His hands and face are magenta, and he also sports six magenta shards on his back, two on his chest, and one on the top of his head that resembles a horn. His face consists of a mouth and one large green eye at the center.
In Heroes United, Chromastone has green teeth and some of his dark lines are missing.
In A New Dawn, Chromastone gets a new appearance. He now wears a green jumpsuit with white stripes on the waist and green-and-white striped gauntlets on his wrists and legs. He has three additional spikes on each shoulder and arm, as well as one on each knee and two on the sides of his head, and the spikes on his chest as well as the four small spikes on his back are gone. His neck is now longer, his face has a magenta chin that resembles a mouth guard, and he now speaks without moving his mouth at all. Similar to Pre-Blossomed Swampfire, he has five fingers on his hands, and the Omnitrix symbol is now on his right pectoral.
Powers and Abilities
Chromastone can absorb and channel energy into ultraviolet beams powerful enough to melt through a truck trailer and destroy an entire turret. He can fire these beams from either his hands or from the nine shards on his body and can project these beams as either energy blasts or projectiles.
Chromastone can control the intensity of his energy attacks, and the amount of power his ultraviolet beams have depends on how powerful the energy from an opponent's attack is. For instance, when the Dragon attacked Chromastone with its powerful fire blast, the latter absorbed it and subdued the Dragon with a powerful wave of ultraviolet energy. Similarly, when Gwen gave Chromastone a large amount of mana for him to absorb, he was able to shoot powerful energy blasts at Dagon.
Chromastone is able to allow energy attacks to simply bounce off his body instead of absorbing them.
Chromastone is capable of jumping exceptionally high.
Chromastone possesses enhanced strength, allowing him to overpower stronger opponents, such as a Techadon-enhanced Cash, with his bare hands. Technically speaking, he is physically stronger than Methanosians.[DM 1]
Chromastone is unable to absorb energy when he is either not expecting it or too weak to do so. He is also unable to absorb electricity while it is being conducted by water.
Chromastone has a limit to how much energy he can absorb at once, as he once tried to absorb all the mana energy of Charmcaster's machine but was overwhelmed to the point of almost crumbling apart.
Despite his enhanced strength, there is a limit to how strong Chromastone is, as seen when he failed to punch through the Contumelia's machine's extra-dimensional barrier. Technically speaking, Chromastone is physically weaker than Vaxasaurians.[DM 1]
