Whampire is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Vladat from the planets Anur Vladias and Anur Transyl in the Anur System.

Appearance

Whampire is a vampire-like alien with pale skin, green eyes, and sharp yellow teeth. He wears a black jumpsuit with a green chest and markings, black gloves with green fingers that possess sharp claws, and 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, which resemble the wings of a bat.

Whampire wears the Omnitrix symbol on his stomach.

Whampire's Corrupturas are crystalline entities,[DJW 1] they 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, Whampire's clothes seem to burn off first, leaving his skin, which would be completely grey due to the sun, exposed before he himself burns.

Personality

Whampire speaks with a Romanian accent.

Powers and Abilities

  • Corruptura Projectiles
  • Hypnosis
  • Flight
  • Enhanced Speed (via Flight)
  • Prehensile Feet
  • Bat Transformation
  • Infrared Vision
  • Hypnosis Resistance
  • Sonic Explosions
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Reflexes
  • Quadrupedalism/Enhanced Speed

Just like Lord Transyl, Whampire possesses hypnosis from his eyes and can control other beings by shooting Corrupturas at their foreheads. His Corrupturas can also control a To'kustar.[DJW 2]

Whampire's Corrupturas can embed themselves into a Polymorph's body, making them difficult to remove.[DJW 3] In order to control Dracula, Whampire would have to use his strongest Corrupturas.[DJW 4]

Whampire can absorb and feed off the energy of living beings by sucking on them. He can even drain the life force of a Celestialsapien.[DJW 5] If Whampire were to completely drain his victims of their energy, they would look similar to Darkstar's victims.[DJW 6]

Whampire has the ability to fly and is highly agile.

Whampire has a certain level of enhanced strength, being able to hold his own against a mob of Anur Transyl citizens before eventually being overrun,[1] get Max out of Malgax's clutches, and flip the latter over afterwards.[2]

Whampire possesses enhanced durability, as shown when he was able to withstand being thrown against a wall by Malgax.[2]

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.[1]

Whampire can turn into a bat-like creature.[3][DJW 7]

Whampire can see the internal structure (e.g. nerves) and energy of his victims using his infrared vision.[1]

Whampire can withstand other Vladats hypnotizing him depending on his willpower,[DJW 8] as demonstrated in Lord Transyl's failed attempt to possess him.[1]

Whampire can create a huge sonic explosion as a last-resort means of self defense that was powerful enough to send Rook Blonko, Scout, Rad Dudesman, and a mod of Anur Transyl citizens flying in every direction.[1]

Whampire can survive in the vacuum of space.[DJW 9]

Similar to Ghostfreak, Whampire can probably transform into a smoke-like form.[DJW 10]

Like all Anur System aliens, Whampire can see in the dark.[DJW 11]

Whampire can control undead aliens, such as Benzarro's transformations, [DJW 12] and possessed inanimate objects, such as Chucky, using his Corrupturas. In the case of the latter, the possessor's consciousness would have to be contained within the object they are inhabiting.[DJW 13]

Weaknesses

  • Vulnerability to Sunlight
  • Life Force Drainage Urge
  • Ineffective Hypnosis/Corrupturas
  • Corrupturas Destroyed Upon Detransformation

Whampire, like all Vladats, can be harmed by sunlight and cannot stay in such an environment for more than a short period of time.[3] He can also be harmed by intense heat such as that generated by Pyronites,[DJW 14] Prypiatosian-Bs,[DJW 15] and members of Atomix's species.[1]

Whampire's explosion ability will not only blow away his opponents, it will also blow away his allies, 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.[1]

Whampire's Corrupturas are not very durable, as they can easily be destroyed by species with as much or more strength than a Transylian, as demonstrated by Lord Transyl.[1]

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 cannot attach to beings with wet or slippery skin, such as Ickthyperambuloids[DJW 16] and members of Hobble's species.[1]

Whampire's Corrupturas also cannot attach to beings that 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.[1] Additionally, the Corrupturas are ineffective on Dagon.[DJW 17]

Whampire is unable to control an entire set of Splixson clones using his Corrupturas because each clone is an independent being.[DJW 18] Furthermore, the Corrupturas will not be copied across said clones.[DJW 19]

Whampire will not receive a cosmic power boost from feeding off a Celetialsapien because he would feel like he just slammed an energy drink.[DJW 20]

Whampire is vulnerable to being possessed by an Ectonurite,[DJW 21] as demonstrated with Lord Transyl.[1]

There are certain beings that both Whampire's hypnosis and Corrupturas are ineffective against, such as other Vladats if their willpower is strong,[1][DJW 8] and cyborgs like Exo-Skull.[4]

Whampire's hypnosis is ineffective on Floraunas, as their nature as plant-like creatures makes them immune to being hypnotized.[5] His Corrupturas are also possibly ineffective on Floraunas, though this depends on the willpower of an individual.[DJW 22]

Whampire cannot absorb the life energy of certain beings, such as Ectonurites because they have none in the conventional sense.[6][7] Similarly, he cannot absorb the life energy of human zombies because they have no life force left.[DJW 23]

Unlike Ghostfreak, Whampire is not immune to Darkstar's energy absorption ability.[DJW 24]

Whampire would probably not do pretty well against beings who hunt or slay vampires, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.[DJW 25]

Trivia

  • Though the Vladats are a functionally extinct race, Whampire and Lord Transyl are the only remaining Vladats in existence.
  • Whampire's ability to turn into a chibi-fied bat is an actual power and not just for comedic effect.[DJW 7]
  • Whampire is the only alien introduced in Omniverse who was unlocked through obtaining a DNA sample. However, unlike most other aliens that were unlocked through this procedure, Whampire's DNA sample was acquired in extraordinary circumstances: Lord Transyl was brought back to life by Zs'Skayr using the immense magical power he stole from the Alpha Rune.[1]
  • Whampire is the only known predatory alien in the Omnitrix.
  • Whampire is the final alien introduced in Omniverse, as well as in the Classic Continuity as a whole.
    • Coincidentally, Whampire replaces Heatblast, the first alien ever introduced in the Classic Continuity, in the opening intro of Omniverse's Arc 5.
  • It is possible that Mad Ben does not have Whampire available in his Omnitrix.[DJW 26]
