Rebootomnitrixsymbol This article belongs to the Reboot Continuity.

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


Upgrade had a black exterior with purple front torse and purple stripes that resemble circuitry all over him. The purple circle on his head is his eye.

Upgrade wore the Omnitrix on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

Upgrade was not completely solid, as he can be both liquid and gelatinous. 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 could use his internal nanotechnology to merge with and possess any technology by encasing himself over it. The size of the device is not significant and he controls it as naturally as he would his own body. When he merged he upgraded the technology, making the technology he possessed far more advanced and futuristic and causing new features to form on it. He could also destroy the technology he possesses, as seen in Freaky Gwen Ben. Possessing technology allowed him to transform it with seemingly no limit, such as merging with the Rustbucket and turning it into a space ship, while the moment he un-merged with it, it returned to normal. He could also make his head or his face appear anywhere on the machines he possesses. He was able to upgrade the Omnitrix to permanently enhance his other aliens.

Upgrade was able to fire a purple laser from his eye.

Due to being made of living metal, Upgrade was able to regenerate himself.


Upgrade was weak against electricity (being living metal). Upgrade was sensitive to electromagnetic pulse/fields and magnetic fields.

As a toddler, Upgrade could not completely merge with technology.

    • Upgrade was removed from the Omnitrix, while Gax was just locked. That's very different from being removed from continuity.
