Powers and Abilities
Khyber possesses a knock off version of the Omnitrix called the Nemetrix, that he uses to turn his pet dog into aliens that are the predatory animals of Ben's alien species. He is a skilled hunter, as suggested by his title. He is also a skilled hacker shown in Trouble Helix. Khyber can blow an ultrasonic whistle to command his dog ,which can also be heard by Wildmutt shown in Of Predators and Prey: Part 1. He also has a sniper blaster with extreme accuracy. He has good knowledge of pressure points, as he knew of a pressure point in the shoulder that can paralyze his foes. He is also skilled in hand-to-hand combat. He has enhanced strength strong enough to resist (and defeat) Rath as seen in Of Predators and Prey: Part 2 and enhanced durability as shown when he managed to withstand most of Rath's attacks. He is very agile as shown when he managed to easily dodge Rook's blasts. He also has got a huge arsenal of hunting equipments including different types of blades, Goo gun, force field traps etc.
Khyber was hired by the pair Malware and Dr. Psychobos to get Ben's Omnitrix so that they could reverse engineer it to build a device of "Superior" quality. They paid him with their own device based on the Omnitrix the Nemetrix. Khyber spent a short amount of time afterwards collecting the DNA of the most fierce and savage of the Galaxy's predators and added their collected DNA to the Nemetrix.
He also collected a number of "volunteers" from the Null Void, such as Phil, to test out the Nemetrix. Nearly all the tests failed miserably, learning that only a non-sapient creature could operate the Nemetrix without suffering from severe brain damage since "higher functioning" creatures can't handle the savage nature of the predators, ultimately attaching it to Khyber's Dog.
Khyber first appeared in The More Things Change: Part 1 where he spotted Ben Tennyson investigating the wreckage of Pakmar's destroyed 'Toilet Store" and sent his dog to attack Ben as Crabdozer. Once Crabdozer had Spidermonkey pinned down Khyber recalls his pet determining that Ben was "worthy prey".
During The More Things Change: Part 2, Khyber sent his dog after Ben again this time as Buglizard but when Rook saved Ben Khyber called his pet back until he could get Ben alone. Khyber got his chance to attack Ben when he was alone during his fight against Psyphon, sending Buglizard after him again but this time Ben was able to soundly defeat the creature as Shocksquatch. Later back at his ship Khyber decided that Ben is more resourceful and skillful than he thought.
Later, Khyber stealthily broke into the Bellwood Plumber Base to steal information on his employer Malware as well as the Helix, watching a video depicting the events of Trouble Helix, the first fight between Ben and Malware. Once the video was over, Khyber copied all files relating to the Helix as well files on Ben and Malware and left.
During the events of It Was Them, Khyber sent his pet as after Ben first at Burger Shack as Slamworm, whom Ben was able to defeat as Diamondhead. Later Khyber sent his pet after Ben a second time at Dr. Animo's ant hill where he had nearly defeated Crashhopper as Mucilator before Rook saved Ben. Ben defeated Mucilator by freeing Animo's Mutant Ants from his control and letting them attack the beast forcing it to retreat. Khyber tells his pet to be patient as next time Animo won't be getting in their way.
In Of Predators and Prey: Part 1, Khyber spotted Rook and Ben apparently break off their partnership and takes the opportunity to attack Ben in person with his pet, successfully capturing Ben.
In Of Predators and Prey: Part 2, Khyber brought Ben to his ship and explained to him his history with his old nemesis Malware afterwards he and Ben as Rath got into a short fight in which Khyber easily won using a simple nerve pinch. However Rook arrived and saved Ben, revealing that their earlier break up was part of a elaborate ruse to lure Khyber and his pet out of hiding.
While Ben and Khyber's Pet got into a fight Rook fought Khyber trying to get his hands on Khyber's whistle that he used to command his pet. After learning that Khyber is the whistle Rook simply muzzled him allowing Ben to defeat the alien shape shifter as Grey Matter using the same neural pinch Khyber used on him and rescue Rook from the crashing ship as Big Chill. Though Khyber and his pet survived the crash they were soon after found by Malware and Dr. Psychobos.
In Outbreak, he tried to keep his pet under control while the Nemetrix was malfunctioning but failed, with the dog continuing to randomly change form. According to Dr. Psychobos the needed component to stabilize the Nemetrix was in the Omnitrix itself. Malware and Khyber argued over who would get the component but Psychobos did so himself.
In Malefactor, he and his pet attacked Ben and Rook at the "Olde Bellwood Days" festival in order to keep them from discovering Malware stealing data files from the Plumbers data base from Rook's Proto-TRUK until Ben discovered that it was a distraction at which point Khyber directed them towards Rook's truck for his own reasons before he and his pet retreated.
