Lepidopterrans,[1] also known as Stinkflies and Lepids,[2] are a species from the planet Lepidopterra.


Lepidopterrans have slender humanoid bodies. Their bodies are mostly cyan in color, with their shoulders, armpits, and ankles being light blue. They have cyan-colored compound eyes and several light blue stripes on their bodies. They also have two orange wings and two dark cyan antennae.

Female Lepidopterrans have spikes on their arms and are more slender than male Lepidopterrans.


A group of Lepidopterran explorers once landed on Khoros, where they were mistaken for invaders and fought off by the Tetramand Warrior Queen.

A group of Ekoplektoids came to Lepidopterra unexpected (due to their navigation system being interfered by the smell) and the Lepidopterrans mistaken them for invaders before explaining to them that they need space. So the Lepidopterrans allowed them to stay.


Lepidopterrans are known to take risky maneuvers in making sure their race keep on growing or to fetch food for baby Lepidopterrans. They rarely leave their peaceful planet. They talk in a cool style. Whenever they're attacked or shocked by something happening in their landscape (like when the Ekoplektoids accidentally dented one of their mountains) they take action.

Powers and Abilities[]

Lepidopterrans are extremely acrobatic flyers, able to pull off amazing maneuvers of precision and grace thanks to their insectoid wings.

Lepidopterrans are fast and agile, able to avoid most attacks while attacking the opponents. They can also change directions at exceptional paces.

Lepidopterrans can excrete high pressured streams of some green viscous liquid from two ducts located inside their shoulders. These liquids can either be made flammable or into an immobilizing adhesive. Said liquids are also immune to being exploited and controlled by Polymorphs.

Besides liquids, Lepidopterrans can release methane gas from the ducts in their shoulders.

A Lepidopterran's exoskeletal body is fairly strong, allowing them to survive unscathed while being smashed through buildings and being caught inside a large explosion.

Lepidopterrans have great strength in proportion to his body, able to carry heavy loads while maintaining steady flight.[3]

A Lepidopterran's strength extends to his prehensile feet, as shown when Skunkmoth moved the front half of the Sonitrain.[4]

A Lepidopterran's body is bioluminescent, meaning that they can glow in the dark.[5][6]

A Lepidopterran's fingers are sharp enough to pick a lock.[7]


Lepidopterrans are extremely weak to any kind of chemical, poison, or gas. This can include their own poison gas.[8]

Although their exoskeleton body is fairly strong, a Lepidopterran's wings are very fragile. Water is especially a problem for them, as it can render them incapable of flight if too much gets on their wings.

Lepidopterrans can be frozen by ice.

A more minor inconvenience is Lepidopterrans' odor, so hiding from anything or anyone that can smell can be a problem. Also, their glow can make their spotted.

Lepidopterrans can be easily blinded by their own slime should it get all over their face.[9] Similarly, they can experience nausea from their own gas.[8]

A Lepidopterran's flammable gases can be used against them if they are inside them.

Lepidopterrans are vulnerable to electricity, as it can render them unconscious if they take too much damage.[7]

Lepidopterrans have a durability limit, as shown when Four Arms thrashed Skunkmoth around.[3]

A Lepidopterran's slime supply is not infinite; if fired for long enough, they will run out.

Notable Lepidopterrans[]

Notable Lepidopterran Hybrids[]


The name "Lepidopterran" is derived from the insect order "Lepidoptera," comprised of butterflies and moths.
