The Techadon Robots are Level 12[DJW 1] formidable war machines that utilize powerful lasers and nanite-based regenerative technologies, able to re-create themselves entirely from a single hand.

They were developed by a weapons technology group known as the Weaponmasters of Techadon.

Appearance[]

In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, the Techadon robots are large muscular humanoid-like samurai-esqu automatons that stand at fifteen feet tall.[citation needed] They have an egg-shaped head with no face, but instead an upward-pointing arch-shaped horn, resembling a Kabuto. They have dark grey plating on the armor surrounding their heads, necks, hands, shoulders, hips, and knees with black lining around it while their inner bodies and heads are black. Their outer armor is usually seen in a wide variety of colors, including red, blue, yellow, white, and silver.

In Omniverse, the Techadons look similar to their previous design, except that they are shorter, have a rounder head shape with a red sensor, a larger neck, and grey plating on their hips and arms. They also have horn shaped appendages on their heads. Unlike their appearance in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, they now have four fingers on each hand instead of five.

The sensors on Argit's Techadons are orange instead of red. As of The Color of Monkey, they have the Argistix Security Inc. logo on their chest.

History[]

Alien Force[]

TG (108)

A blue Techadon in Alien Force

During the team's first encounter with a Techadon robot, Gwen slashes off its hand to save Kevin, whom the robot was trying to crush. Just as it begin it’s regeneration process, Goop infiltrated it through the opening created by the severed hand then proceeded to expand himself, creating ever-expanding pressure from the inside and eventually which in turn causing the large robot to explode, dispersing Goop’s own regenerative remains. The hand Gwen had cut off was then dumped in the trunk of Kevin's car (still retaining its own limited volition).

Cash and JT later trashed Kevin's car and stole the hand where it was worn as a gauntlet by Cash. It then took over Cash's mind, using him as a parasitic host to fuel its own desire for battle through Cash’s hatred for Ben. Given the course one night, the technologies from the glove enveloped Cash's body before eventually restoring to its original form. Trying to get revenge, Cash went after Ben to take him down for standing up to him. While fighting Cash in the Mr. Smoothy parking lot, Chromastone managed to defeat Cash just in time for JT to help him free himself from the Techadon's control. After which Ben stated that he would secure the hand someplace where no one would find it and fall victim to its possession again.

In Primus, Ben, Gwen and Kevin fought another Techadon. This one was red and it is revealed by Kevin that Techadons are mass-produced war robots. During the battle, the Techadon's hand tried to crawl off when the robot started to lose but Kevin destroyed it, remembering what happened the last time. Right before the Omnitrix teleported them to Primus, Kevin defeated the second Techadon by ripping its head off from the body.

Ultimate Alien[]

A silver Techadon in Ultimate Alien

Techadons returned to Ultimate Alien in Greetings From Techadon, Vulkanus orders a Techadon factory shipped to Earth to create an army of Techadons to defeat Ben. Kevin defeats the first Techadon by throwing a model of the Tokyo Tower from a mini-golf course at it. Later Ben wraps the Ultimatrix with his coat, as the customized Techadon was targeting the Ultimatrix on his wrist. Kevin then placed an ID Mask on Vulkanus' back, which turned into an Ultimatrix symbol, causing the Techadon to target Vulkanus and chase him.

In Inspector #13, a Weaponmaster came to Earth to investigate the recurring failure of Techadons on Earth. He discovered that Ben and the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix was responsible and sought it to reverse-engineer it as a weapon. He used the Techadon Factory he sent to Earth as part of Vulkanus's hit on Ben as a base. When the Ultimatrix malfunctioned, Ben started using Techadon parts as weapons against Inspector 13, who in turn activated the factory and used the Techadons inside as an army against Ben.

Gwen as Rath and Kevin as Ampfibian, destroyed the robots and Ben was able to get the Ultimatrix working again, using it he forced the Weapons Master off earth. Kevin is also revealed to be keeping a Techadon in his garage.

Omniverse[]

TUH (269)

Magenta Techadons in Omniverse

They returned in The Ultimate Heist under the control of Inspector 13. Two were commanded to destroy Albedo (who wanted to steal a Polymorphic Crystal). However, he managed to defeat one with dodging the other one's attack. The other one managed to make Albedo fall from the truck.

Two robots were seen at 13's warehouse guarding the door. They were tricked by Argit and accidentally let Fistina and Solid Plugg infiltrate in. However, after Fistina opened the door the Techadons started to attack them but were defeated almost immediately.

CIU (473)

Argit's orange Techadon robots

Three days before the events of Cough It Up, Argit stole a dehydrated Techadon army which had the shape of a cube. It revealed that this item is really important for Psyphon, so he sent bounty hunters after Argit. After the hunters caught Argit, he swallowed the cube in order to make Psyphon and the hunters let him go. Since Argit swallowed the army, it no longer remained dehydrated and started to grow inside of Argit's stomach. He then started to cough up cubes which transformed into a Techadon robots, which Argit had full control over. He commanded them to catch Psyphon and the bounty hunters and get them out of Undertown for good.

In Clyde 5, Liam rented three Techadon robots for 250 Taydens to get back the Mark 5 Nanoshift Enabled Exo-Armor. The robots were quickly defeated by Astrodactyl, Rook and Clyde.

Powers and Abilities[]

The Techadons have strong senses, attack and defense modes, making them formidable war machines. They are armed with laser emitters in their hands and are quite durable on the outside as well as incredibly strong. If a robot is destroyed, a separated body part, such as a hand, can operate by its own will and will locate a host in order to reconstruct itself around them.

Custom-made Techadons that are commissioned for a hit have greater strength, as well as an arsenal of powerful weapons like stronger lasers and missile launchers, and when one is destroyed, its successors will be uploaded with all the current data from its opponent and will be adapted to what defeated the previous ones. This process will continue until the fabricator eventually produces a battle bot that will be impossible to defeat and guarantee its opponent’s destruction.

Weaknesses[]

The Techadon robots have severely limited intelligence due to their narrow-programming.[1][2] They can only track down an opponent based on a constant variable in visual data, as indicated by a custom bot upgraded to its apex-point only being able to hunt down Ben based on it’s visual recognition of the Ultimatrix, not his face (which changes as to whatever he transforms into).

A Techadon robot can be destroyed by a Polymorph with relative ease by getting inside it via some sort of breach in it’s armor, dramatically expanding itself, and then blasting it apart under the pressure.

If the robots take too much damage, they will be unable to regenerate themselves.

A cheap, inexperienced Techadon robot can be defeated by an opponent that it has no knowledge about by ripping its head off (the evident location of its CPU chamber).

Of being consisted of metal, Techadon robots can be magnetized by Biot-savartians.

Trivia[]

  • There are two types of Techadon robots; default and custom-made.[1][2] Custom-made robots take more time to build than the default ones.[ES 1]
  • The Techadon robots were named by Glen Murakami.[DM 1]
