Slapback takes the appearance of a green humanoid frog with grey metallic eyebrows. He wears a blue, black, and white jumpsuit covering all except for his arms and feet, as well as a grey and black mask.
Slapback wears the Omnitrix symbol on his back.
Slapback's voice becomes higher pitched the more he duplicates.
Powers and Abilities
Slapback is capable of duplicating himself to an unknown degree when his back is struck or sufficient pressure is applied on it. The clones are not linked in any way and can act independently from one another.
Each time he duplicates, the resulting clones become smaller, heavier, denser and stronger by a proportionate amount. For example, upon duplicating for the first time, the clones are half his original size and twice as heavy, dense and strong. It is possible for Slapback to duplicate enough to become as dense as a black hole.[DR 2]
He is also able to allow the clones to fuse back together into the original Slapback form.
Slapback seems unable to control his duplicating power, as each strike on his back forces him to duplicate unwillingly, and the weight of each duplicate may cause issues to his surroundings.
Since each of the clones have a sense of individuality, Slapback can end up fighting himself if incensed.

Naming and Translations
|Italian||Sdoppione||From sdoppione, splitter|
| From шлепок, slap|
From the original English name
Slapback's name is a combination of the words "slap" and "back"; this is a reference as to how his duplication powers work: by slapping his back.
A "slapback" is also a kind of doubling echo with relatively long delay between repetitions of the sound, so that the individual echoes can be perceived.
- Slapback's name was coined by Gwen and approved by Max, Phil, and a Slapback quarter when his quarters held a vote on the name.
- Ben's proposed names for the alien were "Big Boy" and "Brawno".
- Slapback replaces Grey Matter.
- Slapback's frog-like design resembles Bullfrag.
