Anodites are a free-spirited race of powerful energy beings from the planet Anodyne.
In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien the entire body of an Anodite is a humanoid-shaped construct of pure mana. It is a deep-dark purple color with long flowing tentacles at their head, symbolizing hair, which are a bright pinkish purple glowing color. They do not wear any clothing. They do not have any externally visible ears, nose or lips.
In Omniverse their "hair" are no longer tentacle shaped and can be different shapes. Their skin is now light purple. Their face is now more human-like, with ears, a nose and lips. They now wear clothing. Traditional Anodites wear dark purple and black dresses which remind of their UAF appearance. However, Gwen wears a light blue attire when in Anodite form.
Anodites are free-spirited, and most don't take life as seriously as most humans to the point that some Anodites disregard the morality of their actions and would rather satisfy their own personal pleasures, but that doesn't stop them from helping others; according to Verdona, Anodites help "scads of people." They can also be slightly condescending to non-energy beings.
Anodites are able to reproduce with Humans by assuming a Human body.
If an Anodite reproduces with a Human, there's no guarantee the offspring will inherit the Anodite's powers and abilities. Anodite powers and abilities (which Verdona refers to as "the spark") can also occur in offspring in later generations. Neither of Verdona's children inherited her Anodite powers and abilities, but her granddaughters did.
Powers and Abilities
Anodites in human forms can manipulate mana at a lesser degree than in their true forms for a variety of effects, such as: energy manipulation, flight, telekinesis, object creation and dissipation, opening portals, repairing objects, elemental manipulation, telepathy, dowsing, memory manipulation and invisibility.
In their true forms, their vast powers allow Anodites to warp reality on a limited scale, survive in and fly across space, teleport themselves and others across space and dimensions, create a body of their choice, and can draw in mana from everything around them. They also have a degree of enhanced strength and durability, able to take big rocks and strong attacks without being hurt.
Anodites are technically immortal, as they are able to change their age.
The more mana an Anodite draws in, the more powerful the Anodite becomes.
While in her Anodite form, Gwen has shown the ability to grow to a giant size when she gets angry. It's unknown if Anodites can use this ability in their human forms.
It does, however, require about 75 years before an Anodite can fully master all of their powers and abilities. Using their full power without mastering their powers would result in them being overwhelmed and losing their identities which almost happened to Gwen.
Their mana attacks are useless against Geochelone Aerios.

The name Anodite comes from the Latin word "Anodyne" which means to relieve pain of the physical body.
- Gwen's mother, Natalie, isn't very fond of Anodites, which makes it hard to deal with her Anodite relatives.
- According to Dwayne McDuffie, Anodites lack DNA.
- Therefore, any child an Anodite produces with another species, will be related to that Anodite via parentage, but biologically the offspring will remain 100% pure to the species of the other parent.
- This also means that the Omnitrix cannot transform its user into an Anodite, since there's no DNA to make a DNA sample.
- However Derrick J. Wyatt confirmed Anodites have something analogous to genetic material.
