Piscciss Volanns are an amphibious species from the planet Piscciss.[pop-up 1][1]


Piscciss Volanns have multiple gills and an antenna on their heads for deep-sea diving. When young, their teeth are external, but they become internal as they get older. Their bodies are covered in protective scales with claws on their appendages.

As a Piscciss Volann grows older, the need for water will decrease, making them amphibious.

In Ultimate Alien, female Piscciss Volanns look exactly like males.[DM 1] However, it's unknown how they would look like in the original series or Omniverse.


Piscciss Volanns are not picky eaters due to their steel bending jaws.

Powers and Abilities

The Piscciss Volanns' main ability is to breathe underwater and swim at high speeds with amazing agility. They have great endurance and can withstand strong water pressure, meaning they possess the nature of abyssal aquatic life, hence their blank eyes and the anglerfish light on their foreheads.

Piscciss Volann display the distinctive feature of turning their legs into a fish's tail and vice-versa, giving them a merman-like appearance. While their legs are formed into a tail, Piscciss Volanns can swim very well at great speeds.

Piscciss Volanns have enhanced strength, being able to easily punch a hole in a dock,[2][3] tear a door of the Perplexahedron open,[4] lasso an anchor,[5] and hold his own against Vulkanus while underwater,[6] all of which were demonstrated by Ripjaws. They are also capable of lifting more than his own weight.

Piscciss Volanns' large jaws and sharp teeth are their most deadly weapon, being able to shred even metal from submarines. They also possess sharp claws that can damage metal.[7]

Piscciss Volanns are rather durable, as shown when Ripjaws was able to withstand being thrown against Sheelane's ship.[6]

Piscciss Volanns can unhinge their jaws,[DM 2] allowing them to fit a mass supply of objects in their mouths.[2][5]

Much like an ordinary anglerfish, Piscciss Volanns' lures can serve as a light in dark areas.[8] Their eyes also glow.[3]

Piscciss Volanns are capable of digging, as shown when Ripjaws seemingly had no problem when he popped out of a cluster of sand.[1]


A Piscciss Volann's greatest weakness is that they cannot stay on land for too long. If a Piscciss Volann wants to stay on land, they would require water to keep them from dehydrating. If they don't have water while on land, they could die. Exposure to extreme heat will cause Piscciss Volanns to dehydrate quickly.[3]

Though Piscciss Volanns are able to walk on land, they are not nearly as formidable on land as they are underwater.

Piscciss Volanns are vulnerable to electricity.[2]

Piscciss Volanns can be immobilized by ice, such as the ice breath of an Evolved Necrofriggian.[9]

Piscciss Volanns are vulnerable to magic, as shown when the Piscciss Volann Prisoner was knocked out by one of Gwen's mana projectiles.[10]

The predator of Piscciss Volann is Captain Kork's species.[MW 1] However, that species is not native on Piscciss.

Notable Piscciss Volanns

Notable Piscciss Volann Hybrids


The name Piscciss Volann comes from the constellation known as Volans (shortened from Piscis Volans), which represents a flying fish.


  • A Piscciss Volann's luminescent lure resembles that of Melanocetus johnsonii, a real species of deep-sea anglerfish.
  • The Piscciss Volann Prisoner wears a unique device around its neck that supplies water for its gills, allowing him to walk on dry land without dehydrating.[11]
  • There are things that allow Piscciss Volanns to survive without water for longer periods of time, like oxygen pills.[MW 2]
