Upgrade is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Galvanic Mechamorph from Galvan Prime's moon, Galvan B.


Upgrade has a black exterior with green stripes that resemble circuitry all over him. The green circle on his head is his eye, which glows whenever he talks.

In the Original Series, Upgrade wore white clothing on his front torso and the Omnitrix symbol is on his chest.

In Ultimate Alien, Upgrade has green and black stripes where the white was in the original series.

In Omniverse, Upgrade wears the Omnitrix symbol inside the ring of his eye and he is more muscular. His circuit pattern has changed slightly. He sounds like teenage Ben, but has a robotic tone in his voice that is similar to Malware's.

Upgrade is not completely solid. Due to this, he can reshape himself to let projectiles or blows pass through him by creating a hole in his body at will.

Upgrade can use his internal nanotechnology to merge with or control any technology within reach by spreading over it. The size of the device is not significant, and he controls it as naturally as he would his own body. When he merges he upgrades the technology, hence his name. It was shown in Road Trip Rumble that Upgrade can reconfigure technology to suit for any situation, like transform the Rust Bucket into a battle armor with an arsenal of heavy plasma weapons. Occasionally he can merge with organic beings, as long as there is technology integrated within them, such as with Rojo and Rex.

In Something Zombozo This Way Comes, he displays the ability to upgrade Rook's Proto-Tool just by touching it.

Upgrade has displayed the ability to launch a powerful green plasma blast from his eye, as shown in Tourist Trap.

Upgrade has the capability to travel through electrical currents, shown in Midnight Madness. He can also phase through most any metal or technology.

Upgrade can gently descend through the air, similar to a parachute. This was demonstrated in Secrets.

Being inorganic, Upgrade is also able to survive in the vacuum of space.

In Battle Ready, Upgrade can make lasers with his hands.

HurutAdded by Hurut
Upgrade is weak against electricity (being living metal), as shown in Tourist Trap when he was battling the Megawhatts.

As stated by The Worst in Outbreak, Upgrade's species, Galvanic Mechamorphs are sensitive to electromagnetic pulse/fields and magnetic fields.

Upgrade can be hurt if he is pulled long and hard enough as shown in Divided We Stand as a Mutant Squid did.

According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Upgrade can be affected by technorganic viruses.[1]

  • Upgrade VS. Ditto

    • Ditto is your god. I'm seriously voting for Ditto though. If upgrade has no machines, then his only weapon is his laser, which isn't very stro...
    • It's strong enough to take down Ditto and Upgrade could upper cut The Dittos in the face.
