Whampire is a vampire-like alien with pale-blue skin and sharp yellow teeth. He wears a black and green jumpsuit, with the chest plate looking somewhat similar to that of Big Chill's. He wears black gloves with green fingers that possess sharp claws, has green markings on his suit, and wears a green mask with spikes on it. His head is rather large and features green eyes, and his head spikes are part of his suit and they do not cover any part of his body. Whampire also has green flaps under his arms, resembling those of Jetray or the wings of a bat.
Whampire wears the Omnitrix symbol on his stomach.
Whampire's Corrupturas are small, dark green, diamond-shaped objects with light green eyes, little horns, and black bat-like wings.
In his bat form, Whampire becomes a small black ball with wings of the same color and size. A miniature version of his face is on the front of his body.
While burning in sunlight in Blukic and Driba Go to Area 51, Whampire's clothes seem to burn off first, leaving his skin, now grey from the sun, exposed before he himself burns.
Powers and Abilities
Just like Lord Transyl, Whampire possesses hypnosis from his eyes and can also control other beings by shooting Corrupturas at their foreheads.
Whampire can absorb and feed off the energy of living beings by sucking on them.
Whampire has the ability to fly and is highly agile.
If he is completely surrounded, Whampire is able to create a huge sonic explosion that will blow all his opponents away, albeit his allies will be blown away as well.
Whampire can hang upside down like bats and real vampires using prehensile feet. According to himself, he does his best thinking while he is upside down.
Whampire can see the internal structure (e.g. nerves)nand energy of his victims using his infra-red vision.
Whampire can turn into a bat-like creature.
Whampire, like all Vladats, can be harmed by sunlight and cannot stay in such an environment for more than a short period of time.
Whampire's explosion ability will blow away allies as well as opponents, causing a chance of accidental collateral damage.
When the Omnitrix times out, Whampire's Corrupturas will break apart, freeing his victims from their control and returning control of the victims' bodies.
Whampire must resist the urge to drain the energy of other lifeforms, especially intelligent beings, making him potentially dangerous to his teammates and other civilians.
Whampire's Corrupturas can't attach to beings with wet or slippery skin, as seen with Hobble, or are intangible, though they can attach to said species if they are caught off guard and are tangible when the Corruptura is shot at them.
Whampire can't absorb the life energy of Ectonurites, as they have none in the conventional sense.
- Whampire first appeared in The Vampire Strikes Back, where he was unlocked by scanning Lord Transyl, giving Ben a Vladat DNA sample. Ben transformed into Whampire and took control of Dr. Viktor, Kuphulu, and Crüjo, and used the Lovely Duck to break into Zs'Castle Zs'Skayr and battle Lord Transyl and Zs'Skayr. Lord Transyl tried to hypnotize him, but failed.
- In Blukic and Driba Go to Area 51, Whampire was selected by mistake and almost burned to death, prompting Max to turn him into Four Arms.
- In Malgax Attacks, Whampire battled Malgax and, with the help of Skurd, defeated him.
- In The End of an Era, Whampire defeated Exo-Skull and Subdora.
- In A New Dawn, Whampire appeared for a short time when Ben was cycling through his aliens.
