Ripjaws is a pisciss volann from the planet pisciss.
Appearance and AbilitiesEdit
Ripjaws appears to be part angler fish, part eel, has a fish tail when underwater and is bipedal when on land, and a phosphorescent light on his head. He is able to breathe underwater, and is usually the best alien for to use in defeating water-based villains(he was replaced by Jetray, just like Stinkfly was).Ripjaws can swim at high speeds with amazing agility, and can also withstand amazing pressure. His luminescent angler allows him to see in dark areas.
Ripjaws uses his claw-tipped fins and razor-sharp teeth to attack enemies with strength superior to a person. His powerful jaws can bite through metal. Similar to a snake's eating habits, Ripjaws can unhinge his lower jaw to swallow large objects in a single bite. He can transform his legs into a fish-like tail when he's underwater, by bringing both of his legs underneath the black loincloth coming down, and vice versa when on land. He seems to have super strength as seen in perplexahedron when he broke the wall.
Ripjaws's greatest weakness is his inability to stay out of water for too long, requiring water to keep him from dehydrating. As a result, Ben often takes action by accessing nearby water sources, for instance hosepipes.
Ben 10: Ultimate AlienEdit
He is now catfish-like, is grey with a white chest/stomach, he no longer has the black padding that once held the Omnitrix face-plate on his shoulder, and the symbol is now on his chest. He has more aligned teeth with sharp canines that are no longer yellow. He also has green lips, thick eyebrows, sall barbels on his face, and has green eyes instead of purple, bigger claws, and the phosphorescent light on his head also looks smaller, and when he transforms his legs into a tail, it is entirely grey, instead of striped . But in the intro to ultimate alien, his tail has the same colors from the original series.
He's mentioned in Deep when Ben watches Magester Pike (A Picass volann) defeat fish-like enemies all at once and said "How come I wasn't that cool with Ripjaws?"
He made his first real appearance in perplexhahdron, but didn't say his name like other aliens. He was used to survive being in the water and then breaking him and Kevin out. It is unknown who will voice him in the current series, as he didn't speak in his only appearance. He might be shown more but if he does it is doubted by most people that he will be very popular.
