Upgrade had a predominantly plum-coloured exterior with a violet torso and thighs. He had purple stripes that extend from his body, resembling circuitry; the circle on the front of his head being his eye.
As a toddler, Upgrade still looks the same but in smaller size, as well as having a younger voice.
Upgrade wore the Omnitrix symbol on his chest.
Powers and Abilities
Upgrade was not completely solid, as he could alternate between the forms of a liquid and a gelatinous being. Due to this, he can reshape himself to let projectiles or blows pass through him by creating a hole in his body at will.
Upgrade could use his internal nanotechnology to merge with and possess any technology by encasing himself over it. The size of the device is not significant and he controls it as naturally as he would his own body. When he merged he upgraded the technology, making the technology he possessed far more advanced and futuristic and causing new features to form on it.
Possessing technology allowed him to transform it with seemingly no limit, such as merging with the Rustbucket and turning it into a space ship, while the moment he un-merged with it, it returned to normal.
Upgrade was capable of making certain technology he possessed explode. Due to being made of living metal, he was able to regenerate himself.
Upgrade could make his head or face appear anywhere on the machines he possessed.
Upgrade was able to upgrade the Omnitrix to permanently enhance his other aliens.
Upgrade could launch a powerful purple energy blast from his eye.
Upgrade was weak against electricity (being living metal).
Upgrade was sensitive to electromagnetic pulse/fields and magnetic fields.
As a toddler, Upgrade could not completely merge with technology but could if he was stretched long enough.
