Terraspin is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Geochelone Aerio from the planet Aldabra in the Andromeda Galaxy.

Appearance

Terraspin is a green, turtle-like alien with eight holes in his shell. He also has large, flipper-like arms and stumpy legs. He also has 3 holes which can extend 3 finger-like claws to use as fingers.

In Omniverse, Terraspin now has six holes instead of eight, has brown spots on his upper legs, toes, and shoulders, and has a hectagonal body shape rather than circular. The black stripes under his eyes are now become thick. His skin is now green instead of a tan/brown. His feet have gained toes as well.

Terraspin wears the Ultimatrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Terraspin's aerokinesis

Terraspin can create devastating wind blasts. When doing so, he retracts his head into his shell, opens a hatch to see, his fins become triangular, and his legs combine into a similar shape. His shell stays static and suspended while his limbs rotate at absurd speeds. The holes on Terraspin's shell eject powerful winds, as well as do the vice versa to create strong vacuums. He can use his winds to fly, blowing air to hover over the surface and uses his rotating limbs as propellers. In Cosmic Destruction, Terraspin was able to use his powers to blast himself forward and up ramps.

Terraspin possesses enhanced strength, as Galapagus was able to lift and throw a car. He also has superhuman durability when he is completely withdrawn into his shell. 

Terraspin can extend the black holes at the tips of his flippers into finger-like claws. 

Terraspin is capable of using magic, but doesn't know how.

Terraspin is selectively immune to spells and mana.

Terraspin, as revealed in The More Things Change: Part 2, is immune to poisonous gas.

Weaknesses

If Terraspin's holes on his chest get blocked, his wind powers will decrease.

If Terraspin gets stuck to something and can't spin his arms and legs, his wind powers will be decreased even further.

Unless he is flying, Terraspin's body is cumbersome and not very agile. The position of his face gives him a very big blind spot and he has to turn his entire body around to see behind him.

If a small object hits Terraspin's shell, it can straight away give him a reaction to stop.
