Mess with Trombipulor, you get the tusks!

– Trombipulor's catchphrase.[1]

Trombipulor is an elephant-like alien criminal, currently residing in Undertown.

Appearance

He resembles a grey-skinned humanoid elephant. His ears resemble bat wings.

In Ultimate Alien, he wore an outfit similar to Vilgax's during Alien Force, save for being purple and not having sleeves. He wore a hat with a black strip and red diamond on the front. His tusks were cut off and his eyes were white. His mouth was situated below his trunk.

In Omniverse, he now looks almost completely different. The inside of his ears are now pink and he now has red eyes. His outfit has now changed to black briefs held on by a matching belt and suspenders that are purple and with yellow circles on them and has arm bracelets that match this look. He has a lock on his belt as a belt buckle. On his head rests a purple crown of sorts. His tusks appear to be longer now, and his mouth is now situated at the end of his trunk.

History

Ultimate Alien

Trombipulor was seen having been defeated by Ben's team (Ben having used Ultimate Echo Echo) at the beginning of Basic Training for illegally trading level 3 technology. He can talk through his trunk (while the noise sounds like a regular elephant). Ben can understand him clearly with his universal translator.

In The Purge, Trombipulor fought Ben's team again. NRG fought him, but Trombipulor managed to escape from custody.

Omniverse

In Blukic and Driba Go to Mr. Smoothy's, Trombipulor played his first major role as the main antagonist where he was trying to gain "absolute power" through peanuts, regarded as a "sacred substance" to his people, which causes him to grow to a major size after ingesting some. Ben was able to defeat him as Echo Echo by taking advantage of his super-sensitive hearing to blast him with sound waves.

Trombipulor with Chadzmuth

In Special Delivery, he, Zombozo, and Fistrick try to steal a Dwarf Star from Ben, but were defeated by Armodrillo. They tried again with other villains led by Psyphon, but were defeated a second time by Humungousaur.

In Universe vs. Tennyson, he got out from prison thanks to Chadzmuth but was taken back after Way Big literally stepped on him. After getting severely injured, he was freed once again by Chadzmuth.

In Stuck on You, he was playing cards at the Black Hole when Khyber approached him. Trombipulor nervously asked Khyber what he could do for him. Khyber replied "nothing" and spun Trombipulor around in his chair, causing him to fall to the ground, and revealed that his true objective was Skurd, who was hiding on his body.

Powers and Abilities

Trombipulor has enhanced strength, able to go toe-to-toe with Armodrillo,[2] Four Arms, and Humungousaur.[1]

Trombipulor has enhanced durability, being able to withstand being hit in the head by a lamp post by Four Arms.[1]

Trombipulor can grow into a massive size when he eats peanuts. His strength increases with size, as he was able to hold his own against Way Big after eating peanuts.[1]

Trombipulor is the self-proclaimed "Universe's biggest evil genius", capable of designing and mass-producing his own army of mechanized robo-mice to do his bidding.

Trombipulor can use his trunk to shoot peanuts like a machine gun or suck things up like a vacuum.[1] His trunk is also prehensile, as he used it to pull Fistrick out of a fissure.[2]

Weaknesses

Trombipulor is afraid of mice, like stereotype myths of elephants.[1]

Trombipulor is vulnerable to loud sounds such as the sonic screams of a group of Sonorosians, even more so when he has grown to a large size as his ears too get very large.[1]

Trombipulor can be harmed by intense heat, such as that generated by Prypiatosian-Bs.[3]
