Polymorphs are a species from the molten planet of Viscosia.


Polymorphs are unicellular organisms[DM 1] are neither liquid nor solid, but colloidal suspensions.[DM 2]

Polymorphs are generally green in color, though they do come in different colors, including red,[1] mint green, orange, grey, purple, peach and pink.[DJW 1] Dimension 23 counterparts of Polymorphs are blue.

Polymorphs are gelatinous humanoids with a pointed head and an asymmetrical, drippy amoeba-like shape. Their brains are spread throughout their body.[DM 3]


When their original home planet was destroyed under mysterious circumstances, the Polymorphs' scientific community sent explorers out into the universe to find a suitable planet to relocate their species. Viscosia was an uninhabited planet, it is here in the intense heat, among the unstable solids, that Polymorphs made it their new home planet.[merch 1]


Polymorphs are scavengers; dissolving and processing any unclaimed organic matter.[MW 1]

Powers and Abilities

Polymorphs are indestructible, making it difficult to defeat them by attacking their bodies.

Polymorphs are able to generate and shoot slime from any part of their bodies. The slime they generate can either be acidic[2] or adhesive.[3] They can shoot it in continuous streams similar to a water hose[2] or in blob-like projectiles.[3] They are even capable of spitting out either slime or acid despite having no visible mouth.[3][4]

Polymorphs are capable of making themselves[5][6] and their touch acidic at will.[7][8] Their acid is also able to dissolve a large variety of materials.

Polymorphs can stretch, bend and deform themselves into any shape or form.

Due to being made of slime, Polymorphs can hold objects inside their bodies. They can also do this with creatures to protect them.[9]

Polymorphs can produce multiple slime tentacles from their bodies to grab multiple opponents.[10]

Polymorphs can regenerate and rebuild themselves with ease.

Polymorphs possess enhanced strength and can increase the impact power of their attacks by stretching themselves backwards and using the recoil to launch enemies with a single punch.[11]

Polymorphs can breathe underwater, as seen when Goop was in the sewer waiting to ambush Ben.[12]

Polymorphs can change their density depending on their desire.[DM 4]

Polymorphs can pass under an enemy's foot in order to make them slip.[13][10]

Polymorphs can stick and scale on walls without difficultly.

Polymorphs can survive in intense heat, such as the one on their home planet Viscosia.[merch 1]

Polymorphs can mimic the shape of simple objects to fool an opponent.[merch 2]

Similar to Ectonurites, Polymorphs have movable eyes.[DJW 2]


A Polymorph's Anti-Gravity Projector allows them to change their shape, form, length, width, and height at will.

With their Anti-Gravity Projectors, Polymorphs have enough strength to dismantle a Techadon robot from the inside[14] and effortlessly subdue Magister Prior Gilhil, someone who could easily overpower an armored Osmosian.[15]

Polymorphs can control and their Anti-Gravity Projectors at enemies to attack them due to the edges of it being razor-sharp. In fact, if they are fast enough with their Anti-Gravity Projectors, they can temporarily prevent a Methanosian from regenerating.[12]

Thanks to their Anti-Gravity Projectors, Polymorphs are capable of high-speed flight, being able to easily evade Trombipulor's shots.[16]


On planets with stronger gravity than Viscosia, Polymorphs are limited to their Anti-Gravity Projector controlling their body. If it is separated from them by more than two feet or turned off, the Polymorph's body collapses into an immobilized puddle until it recollects it. They can only struggle to move since they cannot change shape or make appendages to move without their Anti-Gravity Projector.

A Polymorph's Anti-Gravity Projector can be disabled by a shot from a Positron Blaster, which makes them spin around extremely quickly and then separate into multiple parts.[11]

Polymorphs can be hurt if they are spun really fast in a centrifuge, which will cause them to begin separating into his constituent compounds.[17]

While running, Polymorphs are not very fast and cannot outrun humans.[18]

Polymorphs cannot regenerate if they are being continuously attacked.[2][10]

Polymorphs are vulnerable to being blown away by a Geochelone Aerio's aerokinesis.[19]

Polymorphs are vulnerable to suction, as shown when Goop got sucked into Trombipulor's nose.[16]

Polymorphs are vulnerable to an Evolved Galvan's energy beams.[20]

Polymorphs can be affected by a Nemuina's sleeping dust.[DJW 3]

Polymorphs can be hypnotized.[DJW 4]

Polymorphs are vulnerable to being possessed by an Ectonurite.[DJW 5]

Polymorphs are vulnerable to being turned into smoothies by a Roebekampus Multipede.[DJW 6]
