Ventrilosquid[MW 1] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an unknown species. It was an idea by the show's creators that never passed the concept stage during production.[DJW 2]

Appearance[]

Ventrilosquid is a squid-like alien with a white body, a big collection of purple hair, and tufts of white hair on the sides of his head. He has eight tentacles with a green eye with a black pupil on each one, made to resemble sock puppets, but no visible eyes on his face. He also has a wide mouth with yellow teeth and a single longer pointy tooth, as well as gills each of his sides. He wears the Omnitrix symbol on his chest, with two protrusions around it similar to the the ones on Toepick.

Powers and Abilities[]

Ventrilosquid has ventriloquist powers,[DJW 3][DJW 4] meaning that he can make his voice appear to come from somewhere else. This typically occurs while a person or dummy moves their lips and imitates another being's voice.[DJW 5] His power also works on inanimate objects.[DJW 6]

Ventrilosquid "sort of" possesses telepathy.[MW 1] It is just enough to implant thoughts and words into another’s brain.[DJW 7] He is able to control the lip movements of another person's mouth.[DJW 8]

Weaknesses[]

Ventrilosquid can be controlled by Vladats via their Corrupturas.[DJW 9]

Etymology[]

Ventrilosquid's name is a portmanteau of "ventriloquist", a reference to his ventriloquism abilities; and "squid", a reference to his squid-like appearance.

Trivia[]

  • Ventrilosquid was named during the production of Omniverse. At the time, Matt Wayne stated that he "doesn't exist in this" before cutting himself off, stating he had said too much.[MW 1]
    • Derrick J. Wyatt once stated that Ventrilosquid was used off-screen in Let's Do the Time War Again.[DJW 10] However, years later, he stated that he was joking.[DJW 11]
    • Had the network allowed the crew to include more aliens into Omniverse, Derrick would have incorporated Ventrilosquid.[DJW 12] Had he appeared onscreen, he would have been accompanied by the sound of wet noodles.[DJW 13] When picturing a scene that Ventrilosquid could debut in, Derrick imagines him using his powers to make Psyphon insult Vilgax.[DJW 14]
  • Derrick eventually drew a full-color model of Ventrilosquid as part of a GoFundMe in 2020.[DJW 15]
  • Politics are a nightmarish bewilderment among Ventrilosquid's species, as no one knows whose words are coming out of whose mouth.[DJW 16]
  • Ventrilosquid's design is inspired by the Puppeteer from Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials and Sigmund from Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.[DJW 17]
  • Ventilosquid's voice would sound like Richard Horvitz's.[DJW 18]
