Appoplexians are a species from the planet Appoplexia.
Appoplexians are tiger-like humanoids with huge muscles. They have orange fur, white muzzles, hands, stomachs, chests and feet and black stripes on their head, shoulders, back and legs. They also have 4-fingered hands and 3-toed feet. They have quill-like brows over each eye, and they have a large single claw coming out of both wrists.
There are also white Appoplexians according to Derrick.
Only male Appoplexians have been seen so far, so it is unknown what female Appoplexians look like.
Behavior and HabitsEdit
Appoplexians value emotional openness: if an Appoplexian has a feeling, they express it. Generally, the feeling is a blind rage. Appoplexians take great pride in their fighting skills. Appoplexians love to fight and have great appreciation for the best fighter. Instead of shaking hands when they meet, they engage in a wrestling match until one is established as dominant.
Appoplexians believe any problem can be solved by hitting it or hitting it even harder as said by Rath.
An Appoplexian's addiction to violence leads them to be quite dim, forgetting things and being easily distracted.
Appoplexians are prone to referring to people by their full title, as well as beginning a conversation with "Let me tell ya somethin'!"
Appoplexians have animistic tendencies, such as growling, roaring and relentlessly seeking food when hungry.
Appoplexians are prone to mixing up metaphors.
Appoplexians can always remember things relating to fights or battle techniques learned.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Appoplexians have immense strength, as well as being durable enough to withstand a powerful laser or missile at point-blank range without a single scratch.
The claws on their wrists can extend and by stabbing even one of them into the ground, they can create a powerful shock wave.
