Handy Man is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Tetramand from the planet Khoros and the Dimension 23 equivalent of Four Arms.


Handy Man has 11 year old Four Arms' appearance, except he has blue eyes and blue on his shirt instead of white. His skin is dark pink and the rim of the Omnitrix is gold.

Powers and Abilities

IaMBW2 (228)

Enhanced Strength

Handy Man's most prominent ability is his enhanced strength, being able to lift several times his own weight and punch through various resilient materials with ease. Technically speaking, Handy Man is physically stronger than Methanosians and Vaxasaurians at base size.[DM 1]

Handy Man's strength allows him to use anything heavy as a weapon, from big rocks he can throw several feet away, to beams and pillars that can be used as clubs. His great strength even extends to his jaws and bite, allowing him to bite metal and damage it. He even develops to two sharp fangs between his lower jaws as he gets older.

The older Handy Man grows, the stronger he becomes.[1]

Handy Man can create strong shockwaves by clapping all four of his hands together.[2][3][4]

Handy Man can alternatively create shockwaves by slamming his fists on the ground.

Handy Man can jump several times his own height, at least seven stories up, in a single bound.[5]

Handy Man can climb up walls by pushing his fingers into them to make hand holds.[6]

Handy Man has a high level of enhanced durability due to his tough and thorny skin.[pop-up 1][2] As an example, Four Arms was able to take a slash to the chest from Malware while barely feeling any pain.[7]

In correlation to his durable skin, Handy Man is highly resistant to fire, such as that generated by a Pyronite.[8] His skin also makes him laser-proof.

When infected with a cold, Handy Man can sneeze out sprays of slimy snot from his mouth, and although disgusting, this can be useful against insects.[9]


Handy Man's bulk can sometimes become a disadvantage, as all the extra muscle mass makes him relatively slower than other opponents and his immense size makes him an easy target for enemy attacks.

Handy Man's size can make moving through areas designed for small species difficult.

Despite his enhanced durability, Handy Man can feel pain from electricity, such as those generated by Nosedeenians[10] and Gimlinopithecus.[4]

If under the effects of a cold, Handy Man's strength and stamina are severely reduced, his skin turns from bright red to a dark shade of orange, and he develops pungent hives in his armpits.[9]

Handy Man's can feel great discomfort while being attacked by a swarm of ants.[9]

Handy Man is vulnerable to a Celestialsapien's telekinetic abilities, as demonstrated with Manny.[11]
