Rath is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Appoplexian from the planet Appoplexia.

Appearance

Ben as Rath

Rath resembles an orange and white bipedal muscular tiger with no tail and scruffy fur standing about 9 feet tall. He has one large black claw coming out of each of his wrists, green eyes, and black stripes on his shoulders, head and upper body. He has a white jaw, neck, chest, stomach, hands and feet and half-white eyebrows.

In Welcome to Zombozo-Zone!, Rath wore armored shin guards, shoulder pads, and wrist guards alongside a helmet with a green feather.

In Them's Fightin' Words!, Rath temporarily wore a U.S. Army uniform corresponding to the rank of Lieutenant General before ripping it apart to show off his "big muscles".

The Omnitrix symbol is located in the center of his chest.

Animo as Rath

Rath wears brown pants, has white sideburns, and lacks the Omnitrix symbol.

Personality

Uncommonly amongst Omnitrix transformations, Rath has an effect on Ben's personality. While in this form, is personality he becomes more aggressive and hot-headed, frequently speaks in third person, and once angry, usually yells a sentence containing "Let me tell ya something," followed by the person or object's name he is referring to.

As Ben is still learning how to control Rath, he is unable to think clearly when in risky situations, as seen when people were about to fall off of a tree and he tried to chop it down.[1]

Rath often follows his natural instincts under certain circumstances, which will subsequently override his mindset and completely distract him from whatever he might be doing. This is most noticeably demonstrated with his chasing mice, rabbits and over such smaller animals over even the lives of innocents surrounding him, or even his own.

Powers and Abilities

  • Sharp Retractable Claws
  • Wall Crawling
  • Enhanced Strength

Rath demonstrates enhanced strength, able to punch through a solid wall and lift a Cascan[2] with ease.

Rath's black claws are retractable, and can be used to slice or stab objects or enemies. These claws are also resistant against a Pyronite's fireballs.[3]

Rath is an extremely acrobatic fighter, as he has demonstrated numerous fighting tactics.

Just like an Earth cat, Rath possesses both enhanced jumping and senses, and can climb up surfaces quickly and effortlessly. He can combine this with his strength to carry extra weight while climbing.[1]

Rath is shown to be extremely durable, as shown when he managed to survive a rough fall from a cliff.[4]

Rath has enhanced dexterity as he can run on all fours.[1][5]

Weaknesses

Rath's brain is hardwired for aggression and as such, his only known weakness is his lack of intelligence and highly aggressive temperament. This causes Rath to become easily distracted and difficult to stop once he starts fighting.

Despite his enhanced strength, Rath is physically weaker than Tetramands.[DR 1]

Similar to cats, Rath can be distracted by mice[1] and laser pointers.[6][7]
