Porcupine is a pro-wrestler and is the brother of Gaterboy.
Porcupine has a well-built humanoid body with features that resemble that of a porcupine. He has moderate orange skin, a big nose and sharp ears. His eyes are black, he has thick eyebrows and long, black thorns on his head that give the impression of hair. He has multiple flesh-colored spikes on his face and forehead. He has four black spines on each of his shoulders and forearms. He wears a dark red wrestling suit that has a dark orange part on the upper part. He wears dark orange boots.
He had, through unknown methods, gained animalistic attributes as suggested by his name (it is hinted to be genetic).
Porcupine appears in Ready to Rumble with his brother, Gaterboy. They became involved with an organized crime lord named Mr. Beck, and were forced to compete in the underground wrestling matches in order to obtain the needed money to save their mother and their farm. After Four Arms won the competition, he ended up aiding them to save their mother and turned over the prize money. Their mother was kidnapped by a criminal and the brothers and Ben went to the rescue. Ben saved their mother as Ditto and defeated Mr. Beck by using his size against him.
Powers and Abilities
Porcupine can shoot quills from his hair which cause sleep or paralysis, as well as somewhat above human physical abilities, especially agility.
The quills on his back can leave him stuck on a wall or on other surfaces that he gets knocked into. He was also restrained by chains and multiple men.
