Dog-Nabbit (alternatively spelled as Dawg-Nabbit) is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Vulpimancer from the planet Vulpin and the Dimension 23 equivalent of Wildmutt.

Appearance

Dog-Nabbit mostly resembles 16-year-old Wildmutt in Omniverse except his fur is dark orange, his claws are black, and his collar is blue with a gold stripe. The Omnitrix symbol on his collar is blue with a gold outer casing.

Powers and Abilities

Dog-Nabbit's main ability is his sense of smell. As he has no eyes, his "vision" is made up of a dull 3D mapping of where his senses originate, similar to a thermograph. Combined with his enhanced hearing, his senses take the form of a radar or sonar, allowing him to still perceive his environment more clearly.

Dog-Nabbit can sense invisible entities, therefore making invisibility useless against him.[1]

Dog-Nabbit's enhanced speed and reaction time allows him to dodge, evade, and counterattack effortlessly with the help of his senses.

Dog-Nabbit can track almost anything and anyone by their scent.[2]

Dog-Nabbit has enhanced strength, as Wildmutt could tear apart one of Vilgax's Drones with ease,[3] throw a dumpster at a group of Limax,[4] carry a Florauna on his back without difficulty (even while running),[5] hold his own against a Buglizard,[6] and pin down a Merlinisapien.[2][1] He can also dig deep craters at a fast speed, even while digging through solid stone ground.[7]

Dog-Nabbit has enhanced agility that allows him to run, jump, and climb at an inhuman rate. He is highly acrobatic and gymnastic, with such movements being similar to that of an ape.[8]

Dog-Nabbit is durable enough to survive a steel tower falling on top of him and jump through a glass window.[9][10][1]

Dog-Nabbit is a quadruped. However, he is capable of standing on his hind legs, and he can punch, somewhat awkwardly, by doing this. In addition, his feet are prehensile, as Wildmutt caught Gwen with his foot as she was about to be sucked into space.[11]

Dog-Nabbit possesses razor-sharp teeth and claws, the latter of which he can use to climb vertical surfaces.

Because of how he does not see in the conventional sense, Dog-Nabbit is not afraid of Fright Face's species.[DJW 1]

Although he has never trained himself to do so, the porcupine-like quills on Dog-Nabbit's back supplement his sonar and can also serve as weapons, either protecting him while he's rolling or as projectiles fired off at will.

Weaknesses

Dog-Nabbit cannot talk in human languages. Instead, he communicates through a combination of barking and snarling. Due to this, it is extremely difficult for anyone to understand him.

Dog-Nabbit's lack of eyes makes him completely dependent on his other senses (mainly olfactory).

Dog-Nabbit's senses are very sensitive, making him vulnerable to anything that can overwhelm his senses, such as a high-pitched sound.[12][6]

Dog-Nabbit has a weakness against magic, as shown when Gwen put a spell on Wildmutt.[13]

When infected with a cold, Dog-Nabbit's nostrils (on the sides of his neck) get blocked by mucus, making him unable to smell or hear and rendering him essentially "blind." In addition, his fur discolors from its vivid orange to a pale yellowish-orange tone, and his lips and claws turn from black to a sickly dark green hue.[14]

History

In Store 23, Dog-Nabbit was mentioned when Ben 23 witnessed Ben Prime transform into Wildmutt.
