Transylians are an extraterrestrial species of Frankenstein's Monster-like humanoids from the planet Anur Transyl.[merch 1]


Transylians are a human-like species which resemble Frankenstein's monster. They are made of several different body parts sewn together, as well as various electrical generating equipment and life support technology. Most Transylians have two tower-shaped conductor coil-like generators on their back, though these are not machines. Rather, these generators are metallic-organic growths.[pop-up 1][1]

Young Transylians like Viktoria don't have giant conductors on their backs.


Long ago, Anur Transyl used to be the home of two different races: the Transylians and the Vladats. The Transylians were used by the Vladats as their slave labor and main source of food,[2][3] until the other Anur aliens rebelled against the Vladats,[DJW 1] with the Transylians in particular using captured Pyronite energy.[pop-up 2][4] to incinerate and kill them.[DJW 2]

Though they hunted all Vladats on Anur Transyl into utter extinction and became the dominant species on Anur Transyl, Transylians were eventually enslaved by the Ectonurites.

At some point, Transylians learned how to harness the lightning from Anur Transyl's giant storms with their own electric powers.[pop-up 3][1]


Depending on the individual, Transylians have a myriad of personalities. However, they commonly share a hatred of Vladats, due to being enslaved by them and used ultimately as food in the past.[2][3]

Transylians are not too friendly towards other-worlders outside the Anur System and view them as monsters.[5]

Transylians view anything hideously ugly as attractive.[6][7]

Powers and Abilities

Transylians are walking electricity/life force generators with electromagnetic bodies, capable of shooting electric bursts, manipulating electromagnetic fields and energy, and even healing others. Their bio-electricity discharge is naturally green.[pop-up 4][1]

Transylians can emit powerful lightning bolts and emit magnetism from their hands or feet, allowing him to attach to metal structures.[1]

Transylians can emit their lightning in the form of waves that can travel along flat surfaces.[8]

Transylians can alternatively shoot concentrated beams of electricity.[9]

Transylians possess enhanced strength, as Frankenstrike was able to punch through a Techadon robot and knock its arm off.[10] Transylians are also strong enough to carry an Appoplexian over their shoulders.[11]

Transylians have enhanced jumping, as shown when Frankenstrike was able to jump and hold onto a high ladder when waiting to ambush Phil.[12]

Transylians are durable enough to withstand being blasted by one of Phil's electric blasts.[12]

Transylians can enhance their physical attacks by giving them an electrical charge.[12]

Like all Anur System species, Transylians are immune to the effects of Corrodium[1] and can see in the dark.[DJW 3]

Transylians can survive in the vacuum of space.[1]

Transylians are fast enough to keep up with Appoplexians, as Lightning Volt could keep up with Rath.[11]

Transylians have a form of technokinesis by connecting themselves to machines with their conductor coils to control them. They can do so with their electricity as well.

Transylians are resistant against extreme heat and immune to an Anodite's mana attacks, as demonstrated by Viktor.[13]


Transylians can be stunned or put down by being overloaded with massive amounts of electricity, as shown when Ben knocked Viktor into a generator,[1] whereas Rook and Scout incapacitated him using their tasers.[5]

Transylians can be harmed by the impact of their own electrical attacks, as shown when Frankenstrike blasted Dr. Viktor with a charge strong enough to send him flying into a Null Void portal.[1]

The two generators on a Transylian's shoulders are the source of their electricity, which means opponents with energy absorption abilities can absorb their electricity through them.[12]

Transylians are unable to fit through small or tight spaces.[9][8]

Transylians can be controlled and hypnotized by Vladats via their Corrupturas, as demonstrated by Viktor and many other Transylian residents of Anur Transyl.[3]

Transylians can easily be scared by Toepick's species.[DJW 4]

Transylians are vulnerable to being possessed by an Ectonurite, as demonstrated with Viktor.[1]

Notable Transylians

Notable Transylian Hybrids


The name Transylian is a play on Transylvania.


  • Similar to how humans have organ donors, Transylians can have their limbs replaced with those from another member of their species, but is much easier with no tissue rejection.[DJW 6]
  • Originally, Transylians were the second smartest species in the universe.[pop-up 2][4] This was retconned in Omniverse.[DJW 7]
  • Despite all of their electrokinetic abilities, Derrick J. Wyatt stated that Transylians cannot absorb electricity.[DJW 8]
  • The civilians on Anur Transyl were designed by Tom Perkins.
