Upgrade has 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 wears the Omnitrix on his chest.
Powers and Abilities
Upgrade is 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 can 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 merges he upgrades the technology, making the technology he possesses far more advanced and futuristic and causing new features to form on it. He can also destroy the technology he possesses, as seen in Freaky Gwen Ben. Possessing technology allows 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 can also make his head or his face appear anywhere on the machines he possesses.
Due to being made of living metal, Upgrade is able to regenerate himself.
Upgrade is weak against electricity (being living metal). Upgrade is sensitive to electromagnetic pulse/fields and magnetic fields.
As a toddler, Upgrade can not completely merge with technology.
