Ridejacker is an alien from the series Project Deca.
Ridejacker has the ability to take control of most technology using tendrils that extend from the ends of his fingertips. Once connected to something, Ridejacker becomes almost impossible to remove, with his hard shell providing protection from almost any attack.
These tendrils are prehensile, extremely strong, and can extend up to ten meters away from Ridejacker's body, giving them a number of uses. Ridejacker has been seen using these tendrils to lift heavy debris and cut through softer enemies by using them as wire saws.
Ridejacker's species spread throughout the galaxy by hijacking spaceships from the outside, and so evolved natural protection against the negative effects of hyperspace travel and time dilation.
Ridejacker's tendrils lack the durability of the rest of his body, meaning that they can be severed if Ridejacker isn't careful.
