The Way Bads are a group of mutated To'kustars, who first appeared in The Frogs of War: Part 1.
Way Bads have the basic structure of any other To'kustar, but their skin colors are either a combination of gray and red, or gray and purple with black markings on their lower arms. Way Bads also have red eyes. They wear outfits and armor that vary almost entirely from Way Bad to Way Bad, and some of them have more reptilian appearances, blades in varying places, and some of them are skeletal, have bones showing, or have bizarre scars. One of them had large red bulbs over most of its body.
In The Frogs of War: Part 2, Ben and the Plumbers managed to break Psychobos' control over the Way Bads, causing them to go on a rampage. Fortunately, they managed to transport all of the Way Bads to the Null Void.
In Weapon XI: Part 2, Ben, Gwen, Rook, Zed and Argit encountered several Way Bads in the Null Void. Gutrot created a pheromone to attract them to the Rooters' base and prove instrumental to their ultimate downfall. After the Rooters are stranded in the Null Void, a Way Bad is shown confronting the disgraced Plumbers.
Powers and Abilities
Like normal To'kustars, Way Bads have extraordinary strength and durability. They also can blast strong cosmic rays by crossing their wrists together.
Way Bads can be mind controlled by a machine controlled by Dr. Psychobos after being exposed to his Ogia Concentrate.
