Echo Echo is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Sonorosian from the planet Sonorosia.

Appearance

Echo Echo is a small, white alien whose body is a living amplifier. He is actually living sonic waves contained in a suit made of silicon. One of his most noticeable features is a square appendage resembling an MP3 player behind his back with a port on it - decorated with a 10 symbol and what looks like cassette tapes on his lower legs. He has circle-shaped indents on the back of his hands which are green. The inside of his mouth is also green with lines that give it the appearance of an amplifier.

In Heroes United, Echo Echo's eyes are bigger and his mouth is black in color.

In Omniverse, Echo Echo's eyes bulge out. He has two black stripes on both of his earplugs, which are more pronounced. His legs are stubby and he now has three toes, and the green circles on his hands are now bigger. He is also shorter and has a circular shape on his stomach and the tapes on his legs are now gone. His head is less round and is wider and the outlines of his mouth and eyes are thicker as well as his wires.

Echo Echo wore the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, and wears the Omnitrix symbol on his forehead in Omniverse.

Powers and Abilities

  • Self Duplication
  • Sonic Screams
  • Force Fields
  • Levitation (via Glitch)
  • Object Duplication (via Glitch)

Echo Echo can scream at audible to ultrasonic frequencies capable of overloading machinery, shattering steel and stopping projectiles in mid-flight.

Echo Echo has the ability to duplicate himself, much like Ditto, but different in that the clones aren't linked in any way, allowing entire groups to be knocked out without harming the rest and he can clone himself much faster than Ditto could.

By combining these two aspects, Echo Echo can create a wall of sound, where he and his clones can redirect projectiles back to their source by bouncing them off of strategically placed clones.[1]

Echo Echo can create an echo chamber, where the Echo Echos attack from all directions and keep screaming until the target is knocked out or defeated.[2]

Echo Echo can detect vibrations in the ground.

Using his sonic screams, Echo Echo can locate objects/people (echolocation).[3]

Echo Echo can channel vibrations to enhance his screams, seen when he touched Kevin, who had absorbed metal that caused him to vibrate when struck by Gwen's mana.[4]

Echo Echo can transmit sound waves through speakers (such as phones).[5]

Echo Echo can use his sonic screams to create a forcefield.

Echo Echo is quite agile, shown from his ability to jump very high.

Echo Echo seems to have more strength than his size suggests, as he can kick off the trunk door from Ben's car with one foot[6] and is able to throw (about a meter) a Plumber Ship with nine clones.[7]

Due to a glitch in the original Ultimatrix, Echo Echo used to have the abilities to levitate[8] and create copies of any object he was holding while making clones.[9] Both of these abilities were removed from Echo Echo when Ben acquired the new Omnitrix in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2.[DJW 1][DJW 2]

Weaknesses

Echo Echo has a fragile body that can easily be destroyed in battle, as shown when Ultimate Kevin destroyed several Echo Echo clones with Jetray's neuroshock blasts.[6]

Echo Echo's sonic screams can easily hurt his teammates' ears.[10][11]
