Etymology[edit | edit source]
Its name alludes to its insect-like appearance (Greek derivation suffix, oide: similar).
In English, its name is Stinkfly, and it is divided into two characteristics; Stink is English for stink, due to its bad smell, and fly is English for fly, due to its appearance to a fly, which would be stink fly.
In Spain, its name is Dragonfly, due to its aspects to a dragonfly, these being the abdomen longer than the head and the thorax together, and also because this is a Lepidopterran or lepidopteran and the dragonflies belong to a branch of the lepidoptera.

Ben 10[edit | edit source]
Ben Tennyson: Insectoid has an insect body, flat wings, and 4 legs with 2 arms whose human-style hands are black in color, similar to fingerless gloves, and 3 clawed fingers. He has 4 pedunculated eyes that are quite small and yellowish-orange in color. These eyes are linked directly to the sides of his huge black head. Its wings are very brittle with lines on them. Its limbs are greenish-brown, but its wings are light green. Insectoid bears the Omnitrix symbol on the upper part of the forehead. In his transformation, his arm is seen changing to green as his claws come out, then his head is focused on him so that his eyes come out of the sides of this, then his back is seen where the wings appear and legs, to finish focusing the omnitrix and Insectoid moving its wings.
