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.
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.
Powers and Abilities
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 3] If Whampire were to completely drain his victims of their energy, they would look similar to Darkstar's victims.[DJW 4]
Whampire has the ability to fly and is highly agile while in flight.
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, get Max out of Malgax's clutches, and flip the latter over afterwards.
Whampire possesses enhanced durability, as shown when he was able to withstand being thrown against a wall by Malgax.
Whampire can hang upside down like bats and real vampires using his prehensile feet. According to himself, he does his best thinking while he is upside down.
Whampire can see the internal structure, like the nerves and energy of his victims using his infrared vision.
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.
Whampire can survive in the vacuum of space.[DJW 7]
Like all Anur System aliens, Whampire can see in the dark.[DJW 8]
Whampire possesses smoke mimicry.[DJW 9]
Whampire can control undead aliens, such as Benzarro's transformations, [DJW 10] and possessed inanimate objects 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 11]
Whampire, like all Vladats, can be harmed by sunlight and cannot stay in such an environment for more than a short period of time. He can also be harmed by intense heat such as that generated by Pyronites,[DJW 12] Prypiatosian-Bs,[DJW 13] and members of Atomix's species.
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.
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.
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 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. Additionally, the Corrupturas are ineffective on Dagon.[DJW 14]
Whampire is unable to control an entire set of Splixson clones using his Corrupturas because each clone is an independent being.[DJW 15] Furthermore, the Corrupturas will not be copied across said clones.[DJW 16]
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 17]
Whampire's hypnosis is ineffective on Florauna, as their nature as plant-like creatures makes them immune to being hypnotized. His Corrupturas are also possibly ineffective on Florauna, though this depends on the willpower of an individual.[DJW 18]
Whampire cannot absorb the life energy of certain beings, such as Ectonurites because they have none in the conventional sense. Similarly, he cannot absorb the life energy of human zombies because they have no life force left.[DJW 19]
Whampire's Corrupturas are weak against acid.[DJW 21]
- Whampire first appeared in The Vampire Strikes Back, where his DNA was obtained by scanning Lord Transyl and he took control of Viktor, Kuphulu, and Crüjo. Afterward, Whampire used the Lovely Duck to break into Zs'Castle Zs'Skayr and battle Lord Transyl and Zs'Skayr.
- In Blukic and Driba Go to Area 51, Whampire was selected by mistake and almost burned to death until Max hit his Omnitrix symbol and switched 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.
- Blukic and Driba Go to Area 51 (accidental transformation)

- Though the Vladats are a functionally extinct race, Whampire and Lord Transyl are the only remaining Vladats in the universe.
- Whampire's ability to turn into a chibi-fied bat is an actual power and not just for comedic effect.[DJW 5]
- 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.
- While Vladats are one of the few known to prey on sentient species bigger than them, Whampire is not the only known predatory alien in the Omnitrix.[DJW 25]
