Talpaedans are ten-feet-tall aliens that look like a cross between rodents and robots. They have hard yellow armored skin. Their arms contain jackhammer parts, which are also present on their hands and other places. They have a tail. They have four fingers and three toes. Talpaedans from Dimension 23 tend to be blue.
Only male Talpaedans have been seen, so it is unknown what female Talpaedans look like.
Powers and Abilities
Talpaedans can move through solid earth and rock.
Talpaedans are heavily armored and have powerful organic pneumatic drills built into their forearms, which they can use to create earthquakes, dig tunnels, pummel enemies and batter buildings, even mountains, down to rubble.
Talpaedans have a jackhammer punch, so when they throw just one punch at an enemy, it is like being hit a hundred times.
Talpaedans have incredible strength, being shown to throw large robots with ease.
Certain weapons can cause Talpaedan's nervous system to go out of control, making them unable to stop vibrating their arms.
Electricity can stop them from moving and can even knock them out.
Talpaedan's are vulnerable to their natural predator, Slamworm.
It has been shown Talpaedans have a hard time controlling their jackhammers if they are scared.

Notable Talpaedan Hybrids
The name Talpaedan is derived from Talpidae, which is a name for a family of mammals that includes subterranean animals such as moles.
- Because the Talpaedans are from the Andromeda Galaxy, Talpaedan DNA wasn't in the Codon Stream until the Ultimatrix scanned Andreas' in Andreas' Fault.
- Talpaedans have grey, partially translucent blood.
