Feedback is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Conductoid from the Teslavorr Nebula.

Appearance

Feedback's appearance is actually a black containment suit.[DJW 1] He has one green eye in the middle of his head, two antennae and a tail with round plugs on their tips, four-fingered hands, and feet with only two front toes.

11-year-old Feedback had a white chest color, similar to Buzzshock's design in the original series, and round plugs on the tips of his fingers.

16-year-old Feedback is more muscular than his 11-year-old self, his chest is recolored green, his antennae are noticeably longer, and the plugs on his fingers are now square. He also had gold battery bolts on his shoulders, arms and hips.

Feedback wears the original Omnitrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

  • Electrokinesis
  • Electric Energy Blasts
  • Energy Absorption
  • Energy Conversion
  • Elastic Antennae Tentacles
  • Electrokinetic Flight
  • Radiolocation
  • Energy Balls
  • Electricity-Enhanced Combat
  • Enhanced Speed (on electric lines)
  • Enhanced Strength

Similar to Chromastone, Feedback has the ability to absorb and redirect any kind of energy, including mana. This ability is refined to the point that Feedback can redirect energy at near-point-blank range. He absorbs energy through the conductors on his antennae, tail, and fingers.

Feedback can absorb energy out of living beings, as seen when he battled Argost[1] and Phil in his Terroranchula form.[2][3]

Feedback can use stored energy to generate electrical charges, which can be used as ranged attacks or to empower his punches. He can also fire energy balls by joining his fingers and absorb the energy out of electric devices.

Feedback has enhanced agility and jumping abilities, and possesses enhanced speed but only while running quickly on power lines.[4]

Feedback has enhanced strength, as he can punch a boulder apart with ease.[5]

Feedback can fly by projecting energy behind him like a jet engine.[6]

Feedback is able to stretch the plugs on his head, hips, and hands for more range.[2] He can also "smell" radio signals by using his antennae.[7]

Because his appearance is a containment suit, Feedback can survive in the vacuum of space.

Weaknesses

Feedback needs to absorb energy from time to time to fight because the energy contained within him will deplete with use.[6]

Like Chromastone, there is a limit to how much energy Feedback can absorb.[MW 1]

Trivia

  • Feedback was designed by Dave Johnson, the art director of the first two seasons of the original series.[DJ 1]
  • The crew originally thought Feedback being destroyed by Malware was the reason Ben removed the Omnitrix, but there may be more twists to that.[MW 2]
  • Ben 23 had originally named his version of Feedback as "Plug Man", but later changed it due to liking the name "Feedback" better.[8]
  • Whenever Feedback speaks, an electrical sound is heard.
  • Feedback is replaced with Ditto in the intro of Omniverse's Arc 4 onwards (in the part where he's lined up alongside 11-year-old Ben, Four Arms, Cannonbolt, XLR8, Wildmutt, Ripjaws, and Diamondhead at the end). Furthermore, Feedback is replaced with Snare-oh in the opening intro of Arc 5.
  • Feedback is the first new alien transformation to appear in Omniverse. He is also the final alien used by 16-year-old Ben in Omniverse, as well as the Classic Continuity as a whole.
  • Feedback, Grey Matter, and Juryrigg are the only aliens with their own theme song.
  • Feedback and Diamondhead are the only aliens who have ever defeated Malware.
  • Feedback, Echo Echo, and NRG are the only aliens whose appearances are actually containment suits, though it remains unclear what Feedback's inner body looks like.
