In Ultimate Alien, Oryctini resembled humanoid insects with some shark-like characteristics. They were dark blue, almost purple, and light blue in color. They had long horns on the top of their heads connected to a shorter protrusion on the back of their heads and large mouths that spread over part of their chests. They also had a silver belt, matching wristbands, oval-shaped eyes.
In Omniverse, Oryctini are more insect-like than shark-like. They have upper lips completely covered by their lower lips, different teeth, blue tongues, and horns with forks at the top, causing them to resemble that of a Japanese rhinoceros beetle. They have two-toed feet and spikes on their arms and the backs of his legs. Their color scheme has also changed: their blue is switched to gray, their torsos are now green, and their back shells and armor are dark green, almost black.
Powers and Abilities
Much like Gourmands, the Oryctini are capable of ingesting materials and then turning the matter into energy, which they fire out as a green laser beam from their horn. This beam has been shown powerful enough to cut through the likes of a floating mountain.
Oryctini have enhanced strength and sharp fingers, as they have been shown to easily tear through tough materials, such as metal, in order to break them down into bite-sized chunks. This level of enhanced strength also applies to their jaws, as they can easily chew through metal and rock. Their horns can also be used as an effective battering ram.
Oryctini have a durable exoskeleton that protects them from attacks that would normally kill more fragile beings, such as humans.
Oryctini have a blind spot directly behind them due to the placement of their eyes. This weakness was removed in Omniverse, however, as their eyes are now farther apart.
Oryctini is a tribe of rhinoceros beetles.
- No explanation is given as to why Oryctini look vastly different in Omniverse compared to how they did in Ultimate Alien.
