Diamondhead is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Petrosapien Subsapien from the planet Petropia.

Appearance

Diamondhead is a silicon-based life form. His body is composed of durable pale green crystals. He sports two crystal shards on his back and has yellow eyes and a sharp point on his head. He wears a sleeveless uniform which is black with a yellow "V" stripe on the middle of his torso.

In Don't Laze Me, Bro, Diamondhead grew the crystal formation on his head so that it resembled a pompadour and wore a red bandanna around it. His outfit was primarily red instead of black and was also decorated with three yellow upside down triangles forming a vertical fast forward symbol on each side of his legs.

In Ye Olde Laser Duel, Diamondhead wore a green vest with blue orbs on his chest and shoulders over his regular uniform, as well as a fake brown mustache.

Diamondhead wears the Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Diamondhead's body is composed of extremely thick organic green crystals. He has the ability to manipulate the atomic structure of his physiology at will, allowing him to form his limbs into diamond weapons such as blades and bludgeons. Moreover, he can control all crystals he generates.

He can make monstrous and large clusters of crystals, conjuring walls and forming crystal shields and ramps that he can slide upon. He can also generate crystals from the ground at a distance. He can reshape his projectiles into limited shapes, and can also form gaping hands to capture enemies.

Diamondhead's body resembles a living prism, allowing weapons similar to lasers to be refracted and rendered useless.

Diamondhead is able to absorb various forms of energy, primary light waves[DR 1] such as lasers,[1] lightning,[2][3] and solar heat.[DR 1]

Due to the natural density of crystal, Diamondhead is extremely durable to physical impacts.

Because of Diamondhead being made out of organic crystals, Diamondhead is immune to aging, as crystals do not age.

Diamondhead's crystalline body makes him highly resistant to heat, being able to operate under the hot desert sun without issues.[4]

Diamondhead does not give off body heat, making him impossible to track by body temperature.[5]

Diamondhead can regenerate, but to a limited extent.

Diamondhead can release crystals from his mouth like vomit.[6]

Weaknesses

Diamondhead can crack and shatter if impacted with enough force or exposed to strong sonic vibrations, such as a Loboan's sonic howls. Either scenario may resuilt in Diamondhead falling unconscious.

Although Diamondhead can regenerate limbs, he cannot recover damage that are too severe, as demonstrated by Tetrax.[7]

The two shards on his back can also leave him stuck on a wall or on other surfaces that he gets knocked into.

Since his body is made of diamond, he can sink in water.

There is a limit to how strong Diamondhead is as he can crack his fists after punching something too durable, as demonstrated by Crystalfist.[8]

Diamondhead can be ensnared by ice.[9]
