Vicetopus is a large, dark red octopus-like creature with a long body and many long tentacles along its stomach. It has a beaked mouth, two large red eyes and brown spots covering its back.
Vicetopus wears a red spiked collar with the Nemetrix on it.
Powers and Abilities
Vicetopus can extend its tentacles and has enhanced strength. Its tentacles can squeeze hard enough to crack a Cerebrocrustacean's shell, as exhibited when it squeezed Dr. Psychobos in one of its tentacles, resulting in a loud cracking sound.
Vicetopus' rubbery skin makes it somewhat resistant to a Cerebrocustacean's electric attacks.[DJW 1]
Despite its skin being resistant, Vicetopus is not immune to electricity.[DJW 1]
- Vicetopus first appeared in Showdown: Part 1, where Vicetopus trapped Dr. Psychobos in order to reveal where Malware was.
- In A Fistful of Brains, one of the Panuncian's clones used its Nemetrix to transform into Vicetopus after the Panuncian cornered Ben.
