Subdora is an antagonist who first appeared in Fight at the Museum.
Subdora is a purple Merlinisapien. She has dark stripes on her back and tail, with similarly-colored markings on her head which gives the illusion of hair. She also has a ponytail looking scale on the back of her head. She wears white garments, beret and gloves. She has a black belt with six golden buckles and a white collar with one buckle. She has three toes, four fingers, purple lips and a birthmark on her cheek. She wears triple-lens glasses which hide her three eyes. The glasses are colored in three different ways; magenta, yellow and cyan.
Subdora is very free-spirited and obsessed with dancing. She also likes to over dramatize things. Sometimes she gets angry with her boyfriend, Exo-Skull, because of his manners, however this only makes her more passionate.
Subdora first appeared in Fight at the Museum, when Maltruant sent her and Exo-Skull back in time to get him an artifact, which was said to be the key to time. Using her abilities she easily managed to get the exhibited artifact but due to her dance moves she accidentally activated the alarms. She tried to run but Wildmutt and Spanner managed to scare her away.
When she returned to their hideout, Subdora told Exo-Skull what happened. Later that day, at night she broke into the museum's highly protected room and tried to steal the artifact again. However, Ben accidentally spread cheese dust on her which unveiled her disguise. She was chased by Rook, Spanner and Ester, who managed to get the artifact back.
Subdora once again returns to their hideout empty handed, which forces Exo-Skull to take charge of the situation. They returned to the museum and with Exo-Skull keeping Ben's team busy she managed to steal the mechanism her master wanted. They fled with an untraceable E Class smuggling ship to give their master what he wanted.
In It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Ben World: Part 1, Subdora and Exo-Skull rob an emporium, and are confronted by Ben and Ben 23. Though they manage to escape, the Bens follow them to the warehouse where Maltruant is hiding. During their second battle, Maltruant's chrono cog is activated, and they are all transported to Mad Ben's Dimension. A short while after, they battle with the Bens once more over Maltruant's key. Both Subdora and Exo-Skull are defeated by the Techno-Bubble and Clockwork, but are pulled away by Maltruant after he is reunited with his key.
In Secret of Dos Santos, she is briefly seen when Maltruant's main spring is recovered.
In The Most Dangerous Game Show, Subdora is one of the contestants made to compete for Ben's hand in marriage.
In The End of an Era, she steals the Anihilaarg from Plumber Headquarters, freeing Dr. Animo to distract Max Tennyson. When the present day Ben and Rook are brought in to help, Whampire uses a Corruptura to control her, having her attack Exo-Skull. She and Exo-Skull are ultimately abandoned by Maltruant as he travels back to the beginning of the universe.
Powers and Abilities
Subdora's most used power is the ability to blend with their surroundings.
Subdora can climb walls with no apparent problems.
Subdora is highly agile and flexible, being capable of forming an S with her body.
As shown when she was under Whampire's control, Subdora has sharp teeth, able to rip away Exo-Skull's armor. When she scratched him, Exo-Skull told her not to use her claws.
According to Ester, Subdora is stronger than she looks.
Although her powers give her all the potential to become a professional thief, Subdora's need for artistic expression and ballet often unveils her.
While she is effectively invisible to species with traditional visual ability, species that rely on other senses, like Vulpimancers or other Merlinisapiens, can detect Subdora without issue.
While her clothes can blend into the surroundings as she does, if Subdora is carrying something, or coated in another material (paint, dust, etc.) the coating remains visible, giving away her position.
