Galvanic Mechamorphs can come in a variety of other forms as well, some of them resembling animals, and some appearing as trees and other plants.
The Galvanic Mechamorphs were first brought to life as a complete accident. Galvan B was originally an uninhabited moon, orbiting Galvan Prime. Galvan scientists, lead by Azmuth, were originally working on a project to make Galvan B habitable, but it went farther than intended when a sentient new species came to life. It didn’t take long before the first Galvanic Mechamorphs came to join the galactic community and meet their creators in person. Azmuth and the Galvan were surprised by the unexpected result of their experiment on Galvan B. With their help they built a great civilization within days.
The Helix also created Malware, an incomplete Mechamorph by accident whose life code was corrupted and interrupted during creation.
According to Azmuth in the flashback of "Trouble Helix", the Galvan and Galvanic Mechamorphs were peaceful neighbors.
Powers and Abilities
Galvanic Mechamorphs can merge with technology, and use it as a body. They can upgrade technology, raising its sophistication level by merging with it and changing it into a more advanced stage by doing this. Galvanic Mechamorphs can shoot a powerful optic beam.
Galvanic Mechamorphs can shapeshift into technology they have touched at least once. If they are blown apart, they can gather together their liquidy body and reform.
A Galvanic Mechamorph was able to spawn a small animalistic Galvanic Mechamorph in "Pier Pressure". However, according to Derrick J. Wyatt, it is only possible to do so once a Galvanic Mechamorph has absorbed an animalistic Galvanic Mechamorph.
Galvanic Mechamorphs have the ability to manipulate the environment of Galvan B. By merging all together, they can reform Galvan B if it is destroyed.
While Galvanic Mechamorphs are masters of the mechanical, their merging powers are useless on organic creatures, with the few exceptions being those who already have technology integrated into their organic systems.
Galvanic Mechamorphs are sensitive to magnetic fields.
Galvanic Mechamorphs are vulnerable against Malware's absorption abilities.
According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Galvanic Mechamorphs can be affected by technorganic viruses.

The name Galvanic Mechamorph is a portmanteau of the prefix "mecha-", meaning machine, and the suffix "-morph", meaning form or transform. The "Galvanic" portion of their name refers to their origin as a creation of the Galvan.
- According to Derrick J. Wyatt:
- Azmuth is responsible for the creation of the Galvanic Mechamorphs through the Helix.
