Brain Eater Mimics are a species in Ben 10: Haunted. They live throughout space, being a mostly nomadic race.
The Brain Eater Mimic greatly resembles the Brain Eaters, however there are subtle differences. For starters, the Mimic's brain is real. The Mimic's body parts aren't made up of goo like the real Brain Eaters and they have four tentacles on their bottom, not two on the sides, and yet, people still mistake them for their intended façade. Their colors shift between their true form and their intended form.

At some point, this species evolved to resemble the feared Brain Eaters to better survive the harshness of the universe.
From there, they can be seen through out the cosmos living a nomadic lifestyle mostly, however some can decide to stay in one location if they desire.
One is seen living in Undertown, mostly using it's true colors. This may signify it doesn't feel the need to mimic, or perhaps this one can't.
