Gentlemen, meet Vicetopus, the natural predator of all Cerebrocrustaceans.

Azmuth to Ben and Rook.[1]

Vicetopus are a predatory species from the planet Encephalonus IV.

Appearance

Vicetopus are a large, dark red octopus-like species with a long body and many long tentacles. They have a beaked mouth, two large red eyes and brown spots covering their back.

Both male and female Vicetopuses look the same.

Diet

Vicetopus prey on Cerebrocrustaceans and other native inhabitants of Encephalonus IV.

Powers and Abilities

Vicetopus can extend their tentacles a long way to help them capture Cerebrocrustaceans.

Vicetopus have enhanced strength, strong enough to crack a Cerebrocrustacean's shell by squeezing it.

Vicetopus' rubbery skin makes it somewhat resistant to a Cerebrocustacean's electric attacks.[DJW 1]

Weaknesses

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

Notable Vicetopus

Etymology

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

Trivia

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