Flying's no fun if everybody can do it.

– Jetray while being pursued by Vilgax.[2]

Jetray (alternatively spelled as Jet Ray)[3] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Aerophibian[4][5] from the planet Aeropela.[merch 1]

Appearance[]

Jetray is a red, humanoid manta ray-like alien with green eyes, black outlines on his face, 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 original 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[]

Jetray can fire green neuroshock blasts capable of shutting down an organic being's nervous system from his eyes and tail. These blasts are strong enough to blow a hole in a car's engine block,[merch 1] knock down a Pyronite[6] and an Amperi,[7] and even cause great discomfort to a Vaxasaurian[8] and destroy a Sonorosian with just one shot.[9]

Jetray's neuroshock blasts are capable of starting fires with flammable objects, as demonstrated by Swift.[10]

Jetray is Ben's fastest flier; he can fly at speeds several times the speed of sound.[merch 1] He can maneuver through the air with little to no flapping and extreme precision, unmatched by anything on Earth;[merch 2] as well as being able to accelerate to great speeds with ease. Jetray is also fast enough to create sonic booms[11] and enter hyperspace.[12][note 1] Though, on the ground, Jetray is slower than XLR8.[DM 1]

Jetray has enhanced strength, which was demonstrated by Ultimate Ben using Jetray's powers, where he was strong enough to catch a fast-moving Rust Bucket 3 in midair and ground it before it fell into a cliff.[13]

Jetray is durable enough to withstand multiple blows from Vilgax and gunfire from a fighter jet.[1] Jetray is also immune to radiation, as he could withstand a Prypiatosian-B's radioactive blasts.[5] Additionally, Jetray is also immune to fire and intense heat, such as fire generated by a Pyronite and Vilgax's sword.[6][14]

Jetray can safely fly through the Earth's atmosphere and into space, and travel on an interstellar level.[15][12] Jetray can also breathe and swim fast underwater.[16][17][18]

Jetray is immune to electricity, as demonstrated by Swift.[7] However, Jetray and Swift have been shown to be potentially hurt by the force of electric attacks.[18][10]

Jetray's tail is prehensile, as shown when Jetray carried Gwen while flying up in the air.[19]

In addition to his tail, Jetray's feet are also prehensile, as he was able to carry a Vaxasaurian in the air with his feet without being tired or weighed down.[8]

Weaknesses[]

Jetray's neuroshock blasts are useless against certain mechanical-like species like Talpaedans[20] and robots like Computron's minions.[21]

Jetray's neuroshock blasts can hurt himself, as seen when they struck him after being deflected by the Stalker.[22]

Jetray is vulnerable to strong winds.[23]

Jetray can become drowsy if he is hit by quills of a member of Argit's species, as demonstrated by Swift.[10]

Jetray cannot fly in Legerdomain due to its sky being unparalleled to Earth's.[24][25]

Jetray can be ensnared by an Arachnichimp's webs.[8]

Jetray can be trapped within a plasma ball by a member of Ball Weevil's species, which was demonstrated by Swift.[7]

Etymology[]

Jetray's name is a portmanteau of a "jet", a fast aircraft vehicle, referencing his enhanced speed, and "manta ray", the creature his appearance is based on. Additionally, he can fire neuroshock rays, adding to the "ray" part of his name.

Trivia[]

  • Jetray's voice was somewhat high-pitched until Paradox, where it became deeper.
  • Jetray is the final alien used on-screen in Alien Force.
  • Jimmy thought Jetray's name was "Jeffrey" until Ben corrected him,[1] similar to how a kid at Ben's school called Four Arms "Quad Hands" until he was corrected by Ben in Goodbye and Good Riddance.
    • The nickname originated from the crew joking around.[DJW 3]
  • Jetray is the only regular alien featured in both Alien Force and Ultimate Alien to not be used in Omniverse. However, he was mentioned in Tummy Trouble, Weapon XI: Part 1, and The Color of Monkey, and photos of him appeared in Jimmy's room in Return to Forever.
  • Dwayne McDuffie wrote an underwater battle scene for Jetray, but it was eventually scrapped.[DM 2]
  • Jetray had concept art drawn by Eric Canete,[EC 1] whereas his final design was created by Glenn Wong, with color styling by Chris Hooten.[GW 1]
  • It was initially rumored that Derrick decided to create Astrodactyl as Jetray's "replacement" in Omniverse. Derrick, however, denied these rumors, saying that the crew never intended or even wanted to replace any aliens.[DJW 5][DJW 6][DJW 7]
    • The initial reason for Jetray's absence from Omniverse was because the crew were a little tired of him from Alien Force and Ultimate Alien.[DJW 8]
    • Later on, Derrick stated that the real reason he was excluded from Omniverse was because he could not figure out how he wanted Jetray to look or how to put clothes on him.[DJW 9]
    • Derrick eventually drew 15 and 16-year-old versions of Jetray in the Omniverse art style as part of a GoFundMe in 2020.[DJW 10] He talked with Glen Murakami for inspiration for his design.[DJW 11]
  • Ben 23 does not have his own version of Jetray in his Omnitrix[DJW 12] but if he did, then the transformation's name would be Fish Kite.[DJW 13]

Notes[]

  1. According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Jetray's ability to jump into hyperspace was due to a mistake.[DJW 1][DJW 2] Matt Wayne also states that Jetray cannot travel near or at light speed. However, the exact limit has never been established.[MW 1]
