Jetray is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Aerophibian from the planet Aeropela.

Appearance

Jetray is a red, humanoid, manta ray-like alien with yellow horns extending from his nose, gills underneath his arms, yellow patagia which he uses to fly and glide through water, and two black lightning bolt-like stripes coming down from his shoulders to the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

In Video Games, Jetray wore a blue motion capture suit.

In Heroes United, the black stripes on Jetray's body are straight rather than lightning-bolted.

Powers and Abilities

  • Flight
  • Neuroshock Blasts
  • Hyperspace Entrance
  • Underwater Breathing

Jetray is Ben's fastest flier as he can fly at supersonic speeds. Jetray maneuvers through the air with little to no flapping and accelerates to speeds greater than light with ease.

Jetray is capable of maneuvering through space, a task which no amount of flapping would allow. Jetray's flight speed even allows him to go into hyperspace[1] which means he can travel across interstellar distances in moments.

It would appear that Jetray has an additional key to flight beyond his wings. In proportion to his size, he has a very short wingspan, although his weight is unknown.

Jetray can fire green neuroshock blasts from his eyes and tail.[2] These blasts are strong enough to paralyze a Pyronite,[3] and can even cause great discomfort to a Vaxasaurian.

Although Jetray has never trained himself to do so, Swift's neuroshock blasts are capable of starting fires.[4]

Jetray is durable enough to withstand gunfire from a fighter jet, though this does cause him great discomfort.[5]

Jetray has enhanced strength, which he demonstrated in fighting Alan and Ultimate Kevin.[6] He is also able to carry a Vaxasaurian in the air with his feet without being tired or weighed down. This means that his feet are prehensile, as is his tail, as shown when Jetray carried Gwen while flying up in the air.[7]

Jetray can survive in the vacuum of space[8] and is highly adaptive underwater.[9][10]

Weaknesses

  • Trapped in Webbing
  • Vulnerability to Neuroshock Blasts

Jetray's neuroshock blasts can hurt himself, and are useless against certain non-living targets such as robots.[11]

Jetray cannot walk very well due to his proportionally thin hind limbs.

Jetray can be ensnared by an Arachnichimp's webs.[12]
