Skurd looks like a squid-like green blob with small straight eyes and little points on the top of his head. On his forehead, he has a symbol depending on the device he is attached to.
Skurd talks in a very classy tone. He also appears to be willing to work with anyone who can offer the highest amount of money and/or samples of DNA, seeing how he switched his loyalty to Ben Tennyson over Khyber after seeing that his Omnitrix possessed more DNA samples than the Nemetrix.
He is slightly egomaniac, since upon meeting his past counterpart he stated that he finally met an intelligent lifeform.
He doesn't like humans always stating the obvious and he always informs Ben when he does it much to his annoyance.
Skurd first appeared in Stuck On You, when Khyber was looking for him in the Black Hole. After a short "fight", Khyber suggested to join forces to take down Ben Tennyson. Khyber attached both Skurd and the Nemetrix to himself, so he could use its powers without losing his sanity not using the device directly. However, Skurd double-crossed Khyber after seeing that the Omnitrix has even more DNA. He stuck onto the Omnitrix and left Khyber transforming into Tyrannopede. He helped Ben to take him down and told him that his original plan was to let Khyber's mind rot by the Nemetrix. After they defeated Khyber, Skurd remained attached to the Omnitrix.
Powers and Abilities
Skurd feeds on DNA and is able to grow his host's body parts from himself. He is impossible to remove, since he only leaves his host when he wants to.
When attached to the Nemetrix, Skurd could grow the body parts of a predator and use it as an armor for the wielder. This allows a sapient wielder to remain sane by not using the Nemetrix directly.
Skurd's body is extremely flexible and stretchable, allowing him to change shape and mold himself to whatever body he is attached to. He is able to form pseudo-pods that act like limbs to grab objects and pull them toward him. However, when he is attached to the Omnitrix he can work with dozens of different DNA. When he stuck on Humungousaur and spread to his respective body parts, he could create various different weapons from the DNA of other aliens.
- Diamond sword (plus an arm)
- Diamond anchor
- Drill arm
- Chain gun arm
- Plant tendrils (plus arms)
- Echo Echo
- Head (as a megaphone)
- Fiery, spiked mace arm

- Skurd is originally a concept Bandai wanted in the show; the idea for something that allowed one Omnitrix alien to use the abilities of another.
- Skurd's power to create armor on the arms of his host is similar to the Fairy Tail anime character Elfman Strauss' "Beast Arm" Take-Over Magic, which allows the user to turn their arm into the arms of various beasts and creatures.
- Skurd's ability to give Ben a weapon based on his Omnitrix DNA when Ben is transformed is similar to the power of Ultraman Victory in Ultraman Ginga S with some slight differences.
- Ben only gets a weapon of Skurd's choice while Ultraman Victory's host Shou can pick a weapon of his choice.
- The weapon's Ben gets are of his aliens' DNA in his Omnitrix while the weapons Shou can use as Ultraman victory are from the spark doll's he collects.
- Ben and Skurd use the Omnitrix for their weapons while Shou uses the victory lancer to get his weapons.
