Trumbipulor is an elephant-like alien criminal, currently residing in Undertown.
He resembles a humanoid elephant. His ears resemble bat wings.
In Ultimate Alien, his skin was grey, 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.
In Omniverse, he now looks almost completely different. All of his skin except for the inside of his ears are now a blue color (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. His mouth is now situated at the end of his trunk, as opposed to below the trunk, as it was during Ultimate Alien.

Trumbipulor was seen having been defeated by Ben's team 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 Blukic and Driba Go to Mr. Smoothy's, Trumbipulor 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.
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 Stuck on You, he was playing cards at the Black Hole when Khyber approached him. Trumbipulor nervously asked Khyber what he could do for him. Khyber replied "nothing" and spun Trumbipulor 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 AbilitiesTrumbipulor has enhanced strength and durability, able to go toe-to-toe with Four Arms, Armodrillo and Humungousaur. As shown in Blukic and Driba Go to Mr. Smoothy's, Trumbipulor 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.
He's also 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.
Trumbipulor can use peanuts as ammunition and his trunk as a machine gun. He can also use his trunk to suck things up.
Trumbipulor is afraid of mice, like stereotype myths of elephants, and is vulnerable to loud sounds, even more so when he has grown to a large size as his ears too get very large.
