Sorry about that, sport. Thought you were that mummy. I guess because, you know, you're a mummy.

Max to Snare-oh on his confusion.[1]

Snare-oh (alternatively spelled as Snare-Oh), formerly known as Benmummy, is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Thep Khufan from the planet Anur Khufos in the Anur System.

Appearance

Ben as Snare-oh

Snare-oh is a mummy-like alien whose bandages are made from an alien material that feels like old cloth, but do have elasticity.[DJW 1]

In the original series, Snare-oh's eyes and the gaps between his bandages glowed green. He wore a black and gold pharaoh's headdress, black bracers and greaves, and the original Omnitrix symbol on his left shoulder.

In Ultimate Alien, Snare-oh was slightly taller and the green lines on his body were recolored gold, additionally his chest, arms, shoulders and legs are thicker, giving him a more muscular appearance. He wore the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

In Omniverse, Snare-oh has greyish-brown and more ragged bandages, with more layers being visible and the tendrils on his back being much shorter. His headdress is black with two glowing green gaps on either side of it and a gold rimming at the bottom. His green eyes are surrounded by crown-like golden spikes and his lower face is wrapped in bandages. His chin is black with more green gaps and a golden beard-like spine jutting from it. His upper chest and shoulders are covered by a large collar/wrap-like garment with green and black stripes. He also has black-and-gold pads on each shoulder, with each one having a green "eye" on them. The gaps on his chest are gone and his heels each have an extra "toe". The ties on his Shendyt are replaced by a single bandage. His braces and greaves now have gold trimmings and two larger green gaps on them. He wears the Omnitrix on a green and white belt around his waist. Both the 11 and 16-year old versions share this design.

Ben 10,000 as Snare-oh

Ben 10,000's Snare-oh is recolored to look like the Mummy, though his eyes and the gaps between his bandages glow green and, unlike the Mummy, he has no chin beard.

Benzarro as Snare-oh

Benzarro's Snare-oh looks identical to Ben Prime's Snare-oh in Omniverse, except his eyes, bandage gaps, and Omnitrix symbol are recolored lavender, the bandages are recolored white, the golden parts are recolored silver, and the stripe on his belt is recolored black.

Powers and Abilities

Being composed of bandages, Snare-oh can reshape his body at will. This allows him to split himself apart to dodge attacks and reform to counter-attack. He can also generate more bandages for various needs. Additionally, his body is completely hollow, making him extremely flexible.

Snare-oh can regenerate himself and recover from many types of injuries, including being torn into confetti by a large fan, almost instantly.[2]

Snare-oh can extend his bandages, from his fingers or from his body, creating a sturdy wall.[3] He can also sever the bandages he extends.

Although Snare-oh is frail, he has some degree of enhanced strength, allowing him to lift and throw objects and species like Segmentasapiens[4] with his stretchable limbs, and can punch away a Squid Monster with ease.[5]

Snare-oh's bandages are strong enough to restrain even Fourmungousaur, who has the combined strength of both Four Arms and Humungousaur, with his bandages.[4]

Snare-oh is rather durable, as he was able to withstand being thrown around by the Werewolf.[1] His bandages can even withstand lasers, as demonstrated by Kuphulu.[6][7]

Despite being made of bandages, Snare-oh is immune to the effects of water. As such, he can breathe underwater.[8]

Snare-oh has a surprising amount of speed and agility for his size and bandages, even enough to scale walls and dodge attacks with relative ease.

By reducing himself down to single bandages, Snare-oh can slip through extremely tight spaces or small openings. This allows him to escape various traps or maneuver through cramped areas.[5]

Snare-oh can break his body apart to create a pile of bandages to cushion a landing. His face is separated from the rest of the bandages in the process.[8]

Like all Anur System aliens, Snare-oh is immune to the effects of Corrodium and can see in the dark,[DJW 2] the former of which has been demonstrated by the Mummy.[2][9]

Snare-oh can block out Corrodium radiation with his bandages, allowing him to carry the dangerous crystal inside his body without irradiating anything nearby, as demonstrated by the Mummy.[2][9]

Snare-oh can survive in the vacuum of space thanks to his composition, as demonstrated by the Mummy.[9]

Snare-oh can briefly levitate through the air, as demonstrated by the Mummy.[2]

Although he has never trained himself to do so, Snare-oh can perform magic similar to Egyptian curses.[DJW 3]

Weaknesses

When extending his limbs or other parts of his body, Snare-oh becomes susceptible to strong winds and suction forces.[2]

There is an upper limit to how much tension Snare-oh's bandages can withstand before breaking.

Because he is made of bandages, Snare-oh can be flattened by heavy objects, stopping him momentarily.[8]

Snare-oh can be frozen solid by liquid nitrogen, as demonstrated with the Mummy.[2]

Snare-oh can be tangled up in his own bandages, as demonstrated with Kuphulu.[6]

Snare-oh can be controlled and hypnotized by Vladats via their Corrupturas, as demonstrated with Kuphulu and many other Thep Khufan residents of Anur Transyl.[7]

Etymology

His placeholder name, Benmummy, is a combination of the words "Ben" and "mummy".

Snare-oh's name comes from "snare", meaning to tie up, which alludes to his ability to do so, and the "-oh" is derived from "pharaoh", a word for an Egyptian king, referencing his appearance.

Notes

  1. There is a common misconception that the Mummy was the DNA source for Snare-oh, but this is not true because Thep Khufan DNA was already present in the Omnitrix. Ben just misunderstood what the device was doing when it "sampled" the Mummy's DNA.[DM 1]

Trivia

  • While Tom Perkins designed Snare-oh for the original series, Chap Yaep designed Snare-oh's Omniverse appearance based on Derrick J. Wyatt's roughs.[DJW 4]
  • Snare-oh's placeholder name "Benmummy" was assigned to him by the credits for The Return and toys during the original series. Therefore, Snare-oh is one of four aliens whose working name had Ben's name in it, the other three being Blitzwolfer, Frankenstrike, and Nanomech.
    • In Omniverse, the name "Benmummy" was replaced with Snare-oh.
  • When asked if Snare-oh can fling himself up in the air by grabbing two surfaces, Derrick J. Wyatt said that he probably could.[DJW 5]
    • When asked if Snare-oh can fold his hands like origami and shape them into weapons, similar to Diamondhead, Derrick answered that it is possible, though it would be like hitting someone with a papier-mâché boulder.[DJW 6]
  • Snare-oh replaces Feedback in the opening intro of Omniverse's Arc 5.
  • At some point late in production for Season 3 of the original series, Snare-oh's Omnitrix symbol was intended to be on his left wrist rather than his left shoulder.[merch 1]
  • Had he appeared in Omniverse flashbacks, 11-year-old Snare-oh would have resembled his appearance in the original series.[DJW 7]
    • In the Omniverse intro used from Arc 4 onwards, 11-year-old Snare-oh is incorrectly designed to look the same as his 16-year-old self.
  • Like Frankenstrike, Arctiguana, Buzzshock, and Murk Upchuck, Snare-oh appeared in Omniverse, but he did not appear in A New Dawn.
