Walkatrout is a small, blue fish-like alien with stubby fins for arms, a shark-like dorsal fin, and a pair of thin, spindly legs jutting from his underside. He has a wide mouth with an underbite, and gills on his cheeks with bulging green eyes.
Walkatrout wears a green belt-like strap around his "waist" and back, with the Omnitrix symbol connecting the front.
Powers and Abilities
Walkatrout has gills and can breathe underwater.
Walkatrout is somewhat acrobatic, as he can perform cartwheels.
Walkatrout is physically very weak, being unable to break through a museum's doors and he is not suited for hand-to-hand combat. He also has no hands, which makes grabbing things impossible for him.
Walkatrout is very small, giving him a disadvantage against larger opponents. He is only as tall as a Vaxasaurian's foot. Despite this, Walkatrout is still unable to fit into cramped spaces such as toilets without assistance.
Being an Ickthyperambuloid, Walkatrout is vulnerable to his natural predator.[DJW 2]
