Shocksquatch is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Gimlinopithecus from the planet Pattersonea.[OV Brief 1]

Appearance

In Heroes United, Shocksquatch had the appearance of a thick, muscular yeti-like alien. He had white, gray, and blue fur, along with a reddish-pink face with pointed eyebrows, and green eyes with black pupils. He had metallic gray circular bolts on the back of his hands and on his lower jaw, and he wore the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

In Omniverse, Shocksquatch now has the appearance of a Sasquatch-like alien and appears slimmer than before and he now has yellow and black fur, along with grey fingers and toes. He now has four fingers instead of five, as well as two bolts on the side of his wrists instead of the back of his hands. He has green eyes with black pupils and yellow lightning bolt-shaped horns. He wears a green and white belt where the Omnitrix symbol is located.

Powers and Abilities

Shocksquatch has the ability to release strong, yellow electrical charges from any of the bolts on his body. He is even able to shoot electricity from his mouth.[1]

By covering objects with his electricity, Shocksquatch can telekinetically move them.[2]

Shocksquatch is more agile than he looks, as he could jump over a Buglizard easily.[3]

Shocksquatch can generate an electric force field that can shoot beams of electricity in multiple directions[4] and temporarily shield himself against cosmic radiation.[OV Brief 1]

Shocksquatch can charge his impacts and collisions with electricity to enhance it.[5] He can also move electricity along a surface to either cover an object or shock his target, as demonstrated by Crashocker.[6]

Shocksquatch can infuse his electricity with other beings, such as an Arburian Pelarota, to empower them.[7]

Shocksquatch is physically strong, as shown when he punched Buglizard until the ground fell apart, causing them to fall through into the subway.[3]

Shocksquatch has a degree of enhanced durability, being able to withstand being flicked off a Way Bad.[8] He is also immune to freezing climates thanks to his thick fur.[OV Brief 1]

Shocksquatch has enhanced speed and dexterity, as he can run on all fours.[9]

Weaknesses

Shocksquatch is helpless while being insulated, such as when he is ensnared by an Evolved Arachnichimp's webs.[10]

Shocksquatch has a durability limit, as he received a bad blow to the head after he was thrown against a crashed vehicle.[2]

Shocksquatch is vulnerable to magic, as shown when he was teleported by one of Charmcaster's spells.[11]

Shocksquatch is weak against enemies who can drain electricity, such as Phil.[12]

Shocksquatch can be harmed by his own electricity if redirected and shot back at him.[11]

Even though he can resist both freezing climates and cosmic radiation, these can still be lethal to Shocksquatch after a certain period of time.[OV Brief 1]

Trivia

  • "Electricyeti" was an early name for Shocksquatch that Cartoon Network executive Brian Jones came up with.[DJW 1] This later became the name of Ben 23's equivalent of Shocksquatch.
  • Shocksquatch speaks with a Canadian accent because sasquatches (famously known as Bigfoot) are believed to be from North America in folklore.
    • In Omniverse, electrical and/or monkey sounds are heard whenever Shocksquatch speaks. He also has a habit of ending his sentences with "eh?".
    • The Canadian accent is a reference to David Kaye's uncle.[DK 1]
  • As of Omniverse, Shocksquatch is the only alien that generates yellow electricity.
  • Shocksquatch was replaced by Frankenstrike and Ghostfreak in the opening intro of Omniverse's Arc 5, the latter of whom takes his place in the part where Shocksquatch normally appears alongside Toepick, Astrodactyl, and Bullfrag as of Arc 4.
  • Shocksquatch is one of four regular aliens to have a complete redesign in Omniverse; the others being Eatle, Swampfire, and Chromastone.
    • The reason why Shocksquatch had to be redesigned for Omniverse was because the crew wanted him to better fit the look of the show and to make sense next to the other aliens.[DR 1]
  • Shocksquatch is one of four aliens to debut in a special or movie; the others being Way Big, Eon, and Nanomech.
  • Shocksquatch was the last alien in the Classic Timeline that Man of Action had a part in creating.[DR 2]
  • Shocksquatch was considered to appear in the reboot but did not make the cut as an electric alien for Ben because Shock Rock was created for plot purposes.[DR 3]
