Cannonbolt is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Arburian Pelarota from the destroyed planet Arburia.
Orange Cannonbolt is a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural, orange armor plating on his back, shoulders, and the backs of his arms. He is mostly white with black on his upper half and has four claws on both of his hands.
He wears a black and white suit, and has tied black hair and a beard.
When Orange Cannonbolt turns into a sphere, he rolls up into a ball, with his backplates and the plates on his hands covering him. His sphere form has semi-circular stripes across his body, with black lines around the circular plates, and his side plates are the plates on his shoulders. Orange Cannonbolt has sharp teeth, yellow eyes, and wears the Omnitrix symbol on his forehead. He also has more defined plates on his arms and legs.
Yellow Cannonbolt is the same as the well-known Cannonbolt, with marks added to his backplates. He has green eyes and the Omnitrix symbol is located on his forehead.
Powers and Abilities
Cannonbolt can curl into a ball, encasing himself in his plating. In general, the Arburian Pelarota species mostly used this maneuver for defense, like an armadillo. However, since Ben did not know about this when discovering Cannonbolt, he weaponized his originally defensive capabilities.
When rolled up, Cannonbolt becomes like a motorized wheel that can move at great speed (because of chemicals in his exo-plates that reduce friction) and can increase his rotational momentum to slam into and/or run over enemies. Cannonbolt can ricochet and bounce off surfaces like a pinball in sphere form, suffering little-to-no loss in momentum.
Cannonbolt can use his sphere form to increase his agility by quickly opening up his ball shape while airborne, create shockwaves, and spin into a fierce tornado, and he seems to be capable of perceiving his surroundings despite his eyes being covered and encased inside his sphere form. Despite his top-heavy body, Cannonbolt has enhanced reaction time, reflexes, dexterity, and balance, allowing him to quickly change in and out of ball form to suit his immediate needs.
Cannonbolt can house people and fairly large objects within his spheroid form, and he possesses enhanced strength, being able to fight on par with enemies about his size. He can also break free from traps made of Lepidopterran slime. From inside his shell, Cannonbolt can withstand twice the heat of reentry into the Earth's atmosphere. Similarly, his shell is resistant to acids and lava.
Cannonbolt's shell can deflect lasers, even when not in sphere form. Because of this, he is practically invincible when curled into a ball. Cannonbolt is capable of withstanding the vacuum of space, but he still needs to breathe.
Without an oxygen-supply, Cannonbolt is limited to holding his breath, and he is able to be empowered by electrical abilities, such as those of a Gimlinopithecus. That way, he can gain much more power and momentum when in sphere form.
Cannonbolt is subjected to the physical laws of reflection and conservation of momentum, meaning that he has difficulty stopping or controlling his direction if he picks up too much speed. His bipedal form is top-heavy, making him very unbalanced and clumsy. This is because Arburian Pelarotas are made to spin, not walk. However, he can still manage to use his sphere form to enhance his agility. Cannonbolt's large body makes it hard for him to move in small spaces.
