Dude, watch the puns! Pretty soon, you use up all the eye-conic ones, and they just get cornea and cornea...

– Eye Guy to Freezeghost.[1]

Eye Guy (alternatively spelled as Eyeguy)[2] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Opticoid from the planet Sightra.[OV Brief 1]

Appearance

Eye Guy's entire upper-body is covered with green eyes, although he ironically has no eyes on his face, which consists of a mouth and a very large pair of bat-like ears. He has dark yellow skin with lighter yellow skin on his chest. His entire skeleton is made of cartilage, not bones.[OV Brief 1]

In the original series, Eye Guy wore black pants with white bands on them and a white belt with the original Omnitrix symbol on it. He had light green eyes with dark green pupils, and one giant primary eye in the center of his chest.

His feet were light in colour, but in all following designs his feet match the same dark yellow as on his body.

In Ultimate Alien, Eye Guy looked the same as before, except the big eye on his chest was replaced by his Ultimatrix symbol.

In Omniverse, 16-year-old Eye Guy's eyes are now bigger, recolored slightly brighter, and placed symmetrically on his body. There are also now eyes on his palms. His pants now have green cuffs replacing the white bands, the main belt where the Omnitrix symbol is located is recolored green with a white stripe, and he additionally wears green cuffs on his hands.

11-year-old Eye Guy looks mostly the same as he did in the original series, albeit he has the palm eyes, eye placement, and pupil color of his 16-year-old self. He wears white bands respective to the green cuffs and the original Omnitrix symbol on his belt is recolored green.

Powers and Abilities

From any of the eyes on his torso, Eye Guy can launch green[note 1] energy beams. By closing all of his other eyes, or by merging all of his other eyes into one area, a larger eye will open on Eye Guy's chest and from it, he can launch a more powerful optic blast. He can also stretch his bigger eye out of his chest on a stalk to better aim it towards targets.

Eye Guy's eyes can move throughout his body and merge to create different types of beams, such as merging three on his shoulder to fire a freeze ray that encases and immobilizes a target in ice on contact.[5]

Besides energy beams and freeze rays, Eye Guy's eyes can shoot green bolts of electricity capable of overloading and frying machinery,[6] fire blasts,[7] and sticky goop.[OV Brief 1]

Similar to the compound vision of an insect, Eye Guy's eyes give him 360-degree vision,[note 2] making it extremely difficult to sneak up on him.[5] Furthermore, he can "smell" and see trails of certain chemicals with his eyes, as shown when he was able to see the trail of Mr. Baumann's cologne.[10]

Eye Guy has enhanced hearing due to his large ears.

Eye Guy possesses enhanced strength, enough to pin down a 12-year-old Kevin.[4]

Eye Guy is capable of performing acrobatic and gymnastic feats, as well as jumping several feet high.[6][11]

Eye Guy has good reflexes, capable of dodging incoming attacks.[1]

Weaknesses

If an irritant such as Gracklflint venom gets in his eyes, Eye Guy's eyes will burn and he will briefly be unable to see clearly. Because he has eyes over the majority of his body, he is more vulnerable to being exposed and hurt by such irritants.[8]

Eye Guy's large ears makes him sensitive to high-pitched noises, such as those of an Evolved Sonorosian's sonic disks.[7]

Eye Guy's insect-like vision becomes a weakness when he sees something or someone that he has a fear of, like Zombozo.[9]

Trivia

  • Eye Guy is the first alien to be unlocked offscreen; this trend would later be followed by Arctiguana, Spitter, Feedback, and Fasttrack.
  • Eye Guy's creation could have taken inspiration from one or many different characters in fiction and folklore:
    • Eye Guy, a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers villain, whose body is made entirely of eyes and can also shoot lasers.
    • Argus Panoptes, a character in Greek mythology who is often described as having one hundred eyes.
    • The Pale Man, a villain from the 2006 film Pan's Labyrinth, who similarly has no eyes on his face and eyes coming out of the palms of his hands.
    • The Pale Man's similarities to Eye Guy also go as far back as the Tenome, a Japanese yōkai.
  • In Omniverse, Eye Guy has a tendency to make puns involving the word "eye" or organs related to the eye.
  • 11-year-old Eye Guy replaces 11-year-old Feedback in the opening intro as of Omniverse's Arc 4, specifically in the part where the latter originally appeared alongside the 11-year-old versions of Four Arms, Grey Matter, and Wildmutt.
  • Eye Guy is the only alien used by Ben Prime and Ben 23 to share the same name. Feedback does not count because he was originally named "Plug Man".[12]
    • This leads to Ben Prime admitting that the name is "pretty lame".[1]

Notes

  1. Alternate versions of Eye Guy are shown firing optic energy beams in different colors. For example, Ben 23's Eye Guy fires blue beams[3] while 12-year-old Mutant Kevin fired red beams.[4]
  2. Eye Guy's vision was first portrayed onscreen as all green,[8] before being different later on.[9]
