Jury Rigg is a small, red alien who bears a close resemblance to a gremlin or imp. He is small in stature, only about as big as Gwen's head. He also seems to be a little taller than Grey Matter, but smaller than Upchuck. He wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.
In Omniverse, Jury Rigg now wears an aviator's outfit which comes with an ascot. His skin tone has changed from orange-red to a more crimson-red and is much smoother. His eyes now have black pupils, his ears are now spiked, and his nose is bigger. He also has a spike on his chin and one near each of his eyes. The Omnitrix symbol is now on his waist.
Jury Rigg has a strong desire to break and remake machines, making him difficult to control.
As shown in several episodes in Omniverse, Jury Rigg says, "Jury Rigg disassemble!", "FIX FIX FIX FIX FIX!" and "Reassemble, disassemble!"
Powers and Abilities
Jury Rigg has the ability to completely disassemble any kind of machinery in mere seconds, fitting to his Gremlin appearance. Despite it being harder for him to do due to his craving to destroy things, Jury Rigg can also construct complex machinery from scratch at a similar rate.
Jury Rigg has a form of enhanced strength for his size, able to break a metal car brake in half. He is shown to be strong enough to break apart metal bars that even an Appoplexian could not break.
Jury Rigg has a degree of enhanced agility.
As in accordance with his break it/fix it attributes, Jury Rigg also boasts an impressive intellect, describing himself as "smart and stubborn".
Being small makes Jury Rigg unsuitable for hand-to-hand combat against larger opponents, unless they happen to be machines. In which case, he can dismantle them in seconds.
Jury Rigg has a near uncontrollable habit of breaking machinery and assembling machines.
Like his name, most of the devices Jury Rigg creates are basically on-the-fly or 'jury-rigged.' They are not normally meant to last, (except for the Tenn-Speed) and will eventually fail. Jury Rigg's creations can be unstable and hard to control, much like Jury Rigg himself.
