Mole-Stache is a rodentoid alien with a green and black jumpsuit in which his ears stick out and also has a pair of white gloves. He has a big blonde mustache and beaver-like teeth, as well as a slight potbelly. He also wears a green and white belt in which the Omnitrix symbol is located.
Mole-Stache speaks in a stereotypical gentleman manner and tends to use high vocabulary.
Powers and Abilities
Mole-Stache's mustache is free-forming and about as maneuverable as any limb, able to stretch and form itself into a variety of shapes. While doing so, he can perform with it feats like wrapping enemies up, forming hands, catching drafts, and carrying himself around. It can also be used as a parachute or propellers.
Mole-Stache's mustache is strong enough to lift a truck and a tree. On his own and despite his small size, however, Mole-Stache is strong enough to carry a Revonnahgander with his bare hands while flying and without any trouble.
Mole-Stache can dig into hard surfaces, much like a real mole.
If Mole-Stache's mustache is cut or shaved off, it would quickly regenerate.[DJW 2]
Mole-Stache can have trouble staying upright while carrying something as heavy as a truck with his mustache.
