Ra'ad is an Amperi from the planet Tesslos.[merchandise 1] He was one of five aliens from the Andromeda Galaxy, who was captured by Aggregor. Ben scanned him to gain AmpFibian.

Appearance

Ra'ad looks exactly like AmpFibian except he has blue eyes instead of green and lacks the Ultimatrix symbol.

Personality

Ra'ad had very little indication of his personality in Escape from Aggregor, preferring to be quiet and observant. He questioned Galapagus' trust briefly and agreed that Bivalvan's plan was the best. He also appeared somewhat controlling, having a short argument with P'andor but quickly changed his mind and went along with Bivalvan.

In Fused, Ra'ad had drastically changed, likely after seeing all his friends become captured and the Plumbers dying, and focuses his anger against Ben for unintentionally aiding Aggregor. He seemed to have become uncaring and concerned for only his own well-being, as he was perfectly okay with taking over Ben's body despite meaning that, as Gwen put it, "having him fade". Ra'ad also was not above lying as he teamed up with Ben only to attack him, based on Kevin's thoughts. However, he appeared to Kevin after leaving Ben to fight Aggregor and seemed ashamed of himself, and after Kevin mocked how horrible a coward he is, Ra'ad sacrifices himself to Aggregor to save Ben, likely meaning his vengeful attitude has been dismissed. His overall trait seemed to be self-preservation, which is probably why he lasted the longest from Aggregor, although this might also be because Ra'ad was the most discrete, combined with his ability to travel through electrical devices and read the minds of others.

History

He first appears in Escape from Aggregor where he helped the other prisoners escape Aggregor's Ship.

Ra'ad reappears in Fused where he attacks Ben and blames him for Aggregor recapturing his friends. When the Ultimatrix scans Ra'ad's DNA, he breaks it and his spirit is taken into the Ultimatrix. When Ben changes into AmpFibian to battle Aggregor, Ra'ad begins possessing Ben, similar to how Zs'Skayr through Ghostfreak possessed Ben. Kevin was able to separate Ra'ad from Ben's body. Ra'ad then tried to escape, but stayed behind to save Ben from Aggregor after Kevin lectures Ra'ad for leaving Ben to die at Aggregor's hands and that he used to be selfish as well. Aggregor captures Ra'ad again after a short fight and takes him to his ship along with the others to absorb their powers.

In Ultimate Aggregor, Ra'ad and the others were forced to fight Ben and his team by Aggregor, and he presumably died when Aggregor absorbed the five Andromeda galaxy aliens.

As of the end of Absolute Power: Part 2, Ra'ad, as well as the other Andromeda Aliens, are brought back to life after Kevin was turned back to normal. Ra'ad is the only one who speaks in the moment, thanking Ben for helping them.

Powers and Abilities

Ra'ad can manipulate, produce, and absorb electrical energy, such as lightning and the Piscciss Volann guards' energy net.[1] That energy is then launched out of his tentacles as attacks.

Similar to Ectonurites and Necrofriggians, Ra'ad can make himself intangible.[2] Correlating with this, he is capable of electrically shocking any objects and beings he phases through.[3]

Ra'ad can fly and is agile enough to dodge attacks while flying.[4]

Ra'ad can breathe underwater, the latter of which allows him to swim at superhuman speeds. He can also safely produce and discharge electricity underwater.[DM 1][1]

Ra'ad's tentacles can extend multiple times their length.[5][4]

Similar to Galvanic Mechamorphs and Nosedeenians, Ra'ad can become pure energy in order to enter electrical cables and generate a large energy blast that surrounds him.[2]

Ra'ad has degree of enhanced strength, enough to restrain Phil with his tentacles,[6] as demonstrated by AmpFibian.

Even though his body is frail, Ra'ad is durable enough to withstand being throw against a wall by Solid Plugg[7] and getting hit by an Aerophibian's neuroshock blasts.[8]

Ra'ad can read both human and Osmosians' thoughts by sensing the electrical pulses of their minds;[DM 2].[2]

Ra'ad can survive in the vacuum of space and generate a protective energy shield around himself; these feats were both exclusively demonstrated by Ultimate Aggregor during his visit to the Perplexahedron.[9]

Weaknesses

Ra'ad's intangibility is useless against other beings that can also become intangible, as it will cancel out their abilities to do so.[10]

Ra'ad is weak against enemies who can drain electricity, like Phil.[6] Furthermore, Ra'ad's electric attacks are useless against Solid Plugg[7] because he is made out of super dense rubber.[DJW 1]

Since his body is very frail, heavy objects falling on Ra'ad can make him faint.[8]

Despite his durability, Ra'ad can still be harmed by an Aerophibian's neuroshock blasts.[8]

Etymology

Ra'ad is a transliterated Arabic word (رعد), which means "thunder".

Trivia

  • Ra'ad's plan to take over Ben's body and his Ultimatrix is similar to Zs'Skayr's plan to take over Ben's body and the Omnitrix. However, Ra'ad's intentions were to escape from Aggregor, while Zs'Skayr's intentions were to take control of the universe.
  • Somehow Ra'ad knew of the deaths of the two Plumbers who took P'andor, despite the incident taking place in space and not on Earth.
