Tyrannopede[1][2][merch 1] is the Nemetrix's DNA sample of a Kaosseffexx Ultimasauria from the planet Terradino.

Tyrannopede's species is the predatory species of Vaxasaurians.


Tyrannopede has a large, segmented purple and gray body and a red head resembling that of a Carnotaurus or a Tyrannosaurus with a horn on her forehead. Tyrannopede has four legs and six small arms with two clawed fingers on them.

Tyrannopede wears a red spiked collar with the Nemetrix on it.

Powers and Abilities[]

Being a Vaxasaurian's natural predator, Tyrannopede has bestial strength, high durability, and powerful jaws, as seen as she is more than capable of manhandling Humungousaur with little effort, also seen when she grabs a replica of a spaceship with only her jaws.

Tyrannopede is extremely heavy, weighing too much for Humungousaur to lift for long. Also, every time Tyrannopede ran around on the top of Khyber's spaceship, it would shake the entire ship.[3]

The horn on Tyrannopede's forehead can shoot webs to trap enemies in a sticky cocoon, which is effective against even Vaxasaurians, their prey.[3]


Tyrannopede is vulnerable to the Hephaestan neuro grip.[3]

Unlike Humungousaur, Tyrannopede cannot alter her size.[DJW 1]

While it won't slow her down to a significant extent, stepping on Segmentasapien blocks will cause pain for Tyrannopede's feet.
