Vicetopus is the Nemetrix's DNA sample of a Vicetopus from the planet Encephalonus IV. It is the predatory species of Cerebrocrustaceans.


Vicetopus is a large, dark red creature resembling an octopus 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, making it difficult for them to defend themselves.[DJW 1]


Despite its skin being resistant, Vicetopus is not immune to electricity.[DJW 1]

Vicetopus's name is a portmanteau of the words "vice" and "octopus".


  • Vicetopus being the Cerebrocrustaceans' natural predator is based on how real-life octopuses hunt crabs. Even the way Vicetopus crushed Dr. Psychobos is how octopuses eat crabs, by crushing them and eating the meat inside.[1]
