Ripjaws is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Piscciss Volann from the planet Piscciss.

Appearance

Ripjaws shares a number of traits with Earth's aquatic life, such as alligators, eels, anglerfish, and sharks. He can change between a fish tail or legs at will, and has a phosphorescent light on his head.

He is able to breathe underwater, as well as swim at high speeds with amazing agility and can also withstand very strong water pressure. His angler allows him to see in dark areas. His body was mostly grey. He wore the Omnitrix symbol on his left torso, and spoke with a deep, gasping voice.

In Ultimate Alien, Ripjaws has a catfish like face, and has new chestplates. His tail has triangular lines and is grey as seen in the Perplexahedron, his lips are green, but in the Ultimate Alien Intro, his tail is black and he has black lips. He wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

In Omniverse, Ripjaws has his original appearance, except that his eyes are green, he now has arm and neck braces, his antenna light is green, and he has a big fin on his back and his tail is now bigger.

11 year old Ripjaws now has a green strap on his waist. The Omnitrix symbol is still on the left upper torso. He speaks in a higher, garbelled voice, slightly similar to how a person sounds underwater.

16 year old Ripjaws now has a belt in place of the strap. The Omnitrix symbol is on his belt.

Powers and Abilities

Ripjaws 3

Ripjaws is strong and is able to lift more than his own weight. He can also easily punch a hole in a dock.

Ripjaws's large jaws and sharp teeth have proven to be his most deadly weapon, being able to shred even metal from submarines.

Ripjaws has great endurance and can withstand strong water pressure, meaning he possesses the nature of abyssal aquatic life, hence his blank eyes and the anglerfish light in his forehead, which can serve as a light in dark areas.

Ripjaws displays the distinctive feature of turning his legs into a fish's tail and vice-versa, giving him a merman-like appearance, while outside the water environment, he displays a loincloth with a similar pattern to his tail (implying the loincloth wraps around his legs, fusing with it and becoming the tail).

Ripjaws is able to fit a mass supply of objects in his mouth, as shown in Gone Fishin'.

Weaknesses

Dehydrated Ripjaws

Ripjaws's greatest weakness is his inability to stay out of water for too long, requiring water to keep him from dehydrating. However, Ripjaws needs it less in Omniverse, since Piscciss Volanns need less water as they get older.
