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 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.
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 2] If Whampire were to completely drain his victims of their energy, they would look similar to Darkstar's victims.[DJW 3]
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 Ectonurites, Loboans, Thep Khufans, and Transylians before eventually being overrun. During this same feat, Whampire was completely surrounded, forcing him to create a huge sonic explosion that sent the whole mob flying.
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 prehensile feet. According to himself, he does his best thinking while he is upside down.
Whampire can see the internal structure (e.g. nerves) and energy of his victims using his infrared vision.
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 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.
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 members of Hobble's species, 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.
There are certain beings that both Whampire's hypnosis and Corrupturas are ineffective against, such as other Vladats and cyborgs like Exo-Skull. Furthermore, the hypnosis and Corrupturas would also be useless against Floraunas, as they are immune to being hypnotized due to them being plant-like creatures.
- 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, prompting Max to slam on Whampire's Omnitrix symbol, which caused the latter to switch 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)
