I have my own orbit? That is pretty cool!

– Gravattack using his orbital powers for the first time.[1]

Gravattack is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Galilean from the orbit of the planet Keplorr.[OV Brief 1]

Appearance[]

Ben as Gravattack[]

Being a silicon-based lifeform,[DJW 1] Gravattack is literally a living planet. He is a large, bulky, reddish-brown alien with rocky skin, a giant mouth with teeth that are also made of rocks,[DJW 2] and a molten lava planet core at the center of his body. His feet are tan with three toes, and he has three fingers and one thumb on each hand. He wears black shorts with green stripes, a green belt with white stripes and the Omnitrix symbol on his forehead.

Albedo as Negative Gravattack[]

Negative Gravattack is magenta and red-colored and his core, eyes, and Ultimatrix symbol are all red.

Bad Ben as Bad Gravattack[]

Bad Ben's Gravattack is violet colored, his core is purple, and his eyes and Omnitrix symbol are mint green.

Powers and Abilities[]

Gravattack can control gravity to manipulate the weight and motion of objects, allowing him to suspend and levitate targets in the air, send them flying back or forth, or slam them down to the ground with hand gestures.[1] His control over gravity allows him to change its direction, allowing him to telekinetically send targets flying upwards[1] or across the air as if they were falling.[2]

Gravattack can place objects into an orbital track, causing them to fly in circles at various speeds[3]. When using his powers, he emits an aura of hazy energy[note 1] which he can also form into walls[7], barriers and domes.[8]

Gravattack can use the laws of general relativity to his advantage and can reduce the speed of objects (or in some cases, creatures) to nothing even if they were moving at the speed of light before.[8]

Gravattack can make matter or energy orbit around him whenever he manipulates his own gravity in order to levitate and retracts his limbs, curling his body to a planetoid sphere.[1]

Gravattack possesses enhanced strength, enough to punch a hole in the ground.[8]

Gravattack has enhanced durability, as seen when he endured physical attacks from Fistrick's armor.[1]

Because he is a living planetoid, Gravattack can survive in the vacuum of space.[9]

Weaknesses[]

If he takes large amounts of damage to his core, it can cause Gravattack immense pain. This will also cause him to enter meltdown and explode, which can be dangerous enough to destroy the whole area he is in.[10]

Gravattack's large body makes it hard for him to move around in small spaces.[11]

Sudden changes of mass can throw off Gravattack's orbit.[5]

Gravattack cannot stop someone from using energy-based attacks.[2]

If Gravattack manipulates the gravity of an opponent or object too much, he can accidentally create a black hole and will be unable to undo this despite his impressive ability to create it in the first place.[8] There is also a structural limit that Gravattack's target reaches long before the fusion starts.[MW 1]

Naming and Translations[]

Language Name Origin
Bulgarian Граватак From the original English name
Chinese 重力蟹霸 From 重力 (Zhòng Lì), gravity and 蟹霸 (Xiè Bà), crab
Dutch Gravitonn From Gravitonn, his concept name
French Gravattack From the original English name
German Gravitonner From gravitation, gravity, and tonne, ton
Greek Βαρυτής From βαρυτής, baritone
Italian Planetario from planetario, planetary
Korean 아머락 From 아머, armor, and , rock
Norwegian Gravangrep
Polish Gravattack From the original English name

Russian Граваттак From the original English name
Spanish (HA) Gravattack From the original English name
Turkish Yerçekimi Saldırısı From yerçekimi, gravity and saldırısı, attack

Etymology[]

Gravattack's name comes from the combination of "gravity", his main power, and "attack", the way he mainly uses said power.

Trivia[]

  • Gravattack's concept name was Graviton early on in production of Omniverse.[DJW 5][AC 1]
  • Derrick J. Wyatt did not come up with Gravattack because the idea for the transformation had already started by the time he joined the crew.[DJW 6] His powers were created before his design and name were conceived.[DJW 7]
    • It was Derrick's idea for Gravattack to convert into a planetoid form.[DJW 8]
  • Like Way Big, Gravattack's size is portrayed inconsistently in many of his appearances. Derrick believed this was due to a problem with the size comparisons[DJW 9] whereas Duncan Rouleau believes that the matter is more of an artist's interpretation.[DR 1]
  • Like the rest of his species, Gravattack is considered to be wise and patient.[12][10]
  • Gravattack was considered to appear in the reboot but did not make the cut because he is too powerful for the Earthbound villains on the show to fight.[DR 2]
  • Gravattack's voice started out on a deep note, but it eventually raised in pitch until it almost matched David Kaye's portrayal of Optimus Prime from Transformers: Animated.

Notes[]

  1. Gravattack's gravity aura was originally colored purple before being changed to green beginning in Vilgax Must Croak. Meanwhile, alternate versions of Gravattack are shown generating gravity auras in different colors. For example, Bad Ben's Gravattack generates a dark blue aura[4] while both Negative Gravattack[5] and 17-year-old Mutant Kevin[6] generate red auras.
  2. As of the events of Double or Nothing, Albedo is able to transform into any alien Ben unlocked up to that episode without the need of an Omnitrix or Ultimatrix. Due to Albedo being able to transform into Negative Gravattack in For a Few Brains More, and Derrick being unsure how Albedo would be able to add more aliens to transform into,[DJW 3] it can be inferred that Gravattack was unlocked and available in the Ultimatrix prior to that episode, despite Ben first using the transformation with the new Omnitrix in Omniverse. However, Derrick later admitted that his statement of Albedo only being able to transform into aliens available up to Double or Nothing does not work due to Gravattack, and is unsure of all the aliens Albedo had access to.[DJW 4]
