Upgrade was one of the original aliens and is used by Ben frequently. His powers make him very useful in settings against alien threats such as Vilgax or even just regular robbers.
Upgrade is initially identical to his OS series counterpart. This changes in later Volumes to adapt to Ben's new clothing styles. Instead of green on black on white, the white becomes green.
Behind The Scenes
Upgrade is the artist's favourite to draw.
Upgrade is a very dynamic design so it's also the hardest to draw or animate.
Although Ship and Baz-L have been encountered by Ben, most other meetings with Galvanic Mechamorphs have been scrapped early in production due to them not being necessary. A future plan does bring Ben to Galvan B by the end of Volume 6 however.
