Grossferatu (Whampire) by Zigwolf Grossferatu (Whampire) by Zigwolf
My reimagining for Whampire from Ben 10 Omniverse.

I didn't like how he looked in the show when he was first introduced in Omniverse. He looked way to much like a superhero than a real vampire, so I reworked his look and his powers. Here his face can be seen with the typical pointy ears, pale skin, and fangs that go with a vampire look. I also gave him black eyes for a more darker look. His costume is half warrior look, half OS alien costume. His wings form a cape when he doesn't fly. In the upper left corner, it's shown that Whampire's lower jaw separates and a second mouth comes out. It's all apart of how he feeds. (New Info)The main inspiration for this new look was inspired by Dracula from the 1922 film Nosferatu

His powers that are coming from the show are Flight, Blood Vision, Super Strength and Speed, and wall crawling. Also coming from the show but reworked in the right corner is that Whampire can release symbiotic parasites from his hands onto a victim's head which gives him control over their minds. This control also gives the appearance of bat wing shaped veins. New powers Whampire has are breathing and/or sweating out a fog like mist that he can use for camoflague and rapid healing.

(New Info) Ben came up with Grossferatu after he came from Anur Transyl and showed Gwen Grossferatu. He showed his separating jaw trick and Gwen called it gross and that it was way out of the ordinary from any of the nosferatu she ever encountered.

Edit: Originally was called Whampire but changed it to Grossferatu.

Gotcha.

Btw, since you've renamed Whampire, what are your thoughs on the names of the other three Halloween aliens(Blitzwolfer, Snare-Oh, and Frankenstrike)?

Blitzwolfer I like just a bit but I think it would sound better as just Blitzwolf. Snare-Oh sounds incredibly off whenever I say it, I think a better name could of been made for him. Finally, as for Frankenstrike, that's a perfect name, I wouldn't do anything to change it because it fits perfectly and sounds like something 10 year old Ben would come up with.

Agreed, "Snare-Oh" was a headscratching(at best) choice for the mummy. Plus, the "reasoning" for Blitzwolfer's name(being named after Wolf Blitzer, for whatever ungodly nonsensical reason) was just facepalmingly stupid.

Yeah, Frankenstrike does sound pretty good. What are your thoughts on the three's redesigns in Omniverse?

Yup. I can't believe thy actually showed the guy in the show so we could see how Ben exactly got the name.

Snare-Oh's look is a laying on the Egyptian tone too thick, his OS look had a better look to it. Frankenstrike's organic parts look a lot better. More emphasis on being a patchwork creation than before, but I do miss his hairstyle from the OS. His mechanical parts on the other hand look off from the rest of him, it's probably the light shade of green on them clashing with everything else. Blitzwolfer looks a lot better now but I think he's lost a bit of his alien wolf look he had with his OS design.

:iconfacepalmplz:Ugh... what names would you have used instead of "Blitzwolfer" and "Snare-Oh"(personally, I would've named Blitzwolfer "Beowolf")?

Agreed; they did go a bit overboard with the Egyptian aesthetic, and the green mechanical parts and the different hairstyle did feel a bit off. Also, in regards to Blitzwolfer's less "alien" feel, I think it's mostly(if not entirely) the head, mane, and collar. What did you think of the voices(both in the original series and in Omniverse)?

I'm actually working on my design for Frankenstrike right now, in order to prepare for my Ben 10/Ghoul School crossover(btw, is it okay for me to use Grossferatu?), wish me luck.

Beowolf does sound cool but I'm wondering what would lead Ben to thinking of that for a new name ? I came up with alternate names for both long before they were renamed, Fangface (which I know sounds really basic) and Deadthread.

Yeah you got down what I felt was less alien about Blitzwolfer. His head and mane change make him almost look exactly like an earth wolf while looking at Benwolf you might think twice looking at his head thinking it's from here and for the collar I get it, it's a dog so they thought that was a good idea but the omnitrix placement before below his stomach was still good where it was at.

For Frankenstrike, loved his OS voice it was the right amount of deep and sounded a little electronic when he talked, as for his OV voice it sounds good but the way the VA makes it sound is that he's got a European accent and I'm not a fan of aliens having earth accents (including NRG and Shocksquatch). For Blitzwolfer, like before I like his OS voice more, it sounds normal, but with a certain tone to it, almost semi-electric to match his sonic howl if you get that. For his OV voice it sounds raspy and almost monstrous but it can't hold a candle to the OS voice. For Snare-Oh, said it before and I'll say it again, loved the OS voice more, it sounds normal but there's a slight echo in his voice when he talks, now for his OV voice it sounds to fancy, almost like he's british and it doesn't help that I can hear another role that Kevin Michael Richardson does on another show when I hear him as Snare-Oh

Cool. Yeah it's fine. Good luck!

A VERY much better design that his mainstream counter part. Well Done!

Although, I think "Whampire" is a bit lazy as far as alien-hero names have gone. Got anything better in mind?

Yeah I thought it was lazy too. I tried to come up with something when i was posting this but nothing clicked, I did come up with a slightly different one, Slampire, and a totally different one, Grossferatu.

I don't know, I was pretty content with Whampire's design sense the "superhero" look actually works sense the character Ben and the franchise has the theme of true heroics, doing the right thing ect. ect. but this is very cool nonetheless my friend.

I have no problem with a superhero look it's just I think it was overplayed with Whampire. I mean he's from the same system as Blitzwolfer, Snare-oh, and Frankenstrike but he looks like he doesn't fit in them.

Ok but I'm wondering on some things about this. Do you want them to look kinda like the negative ultimates Albedo transformed into. I mean really fierce and sometimes evil looking ? Or maybe do you want them to look like the ultimate versions of my redesigns ?
