Nibblonians are a race native to the Planet Eternium. They stand about one foot tall and have two large eyes, as well as a third eye on a stalk in the center of their foreheads. They have black fur which leaves them prone to hairballs. They have pale yellow circles on their bellies and around their muzzles with a black nose. They are widely considered as the cutest race ever to exist, though this is something the Nibblonians resent.
History[edit | edit source]
The Nibblonians were a proud, ancient race, with a history extending 17 years before the Big Bang. Brilliant and powerful, since the dawn of time they were known to have battled their ancient nemesis, the Brain Spawn. When the Brain Spawn surfaced to attack Earth, the Nibblonians helped fight them.
Biology[edit | edit source]
The Nibblonians live extraordinarily long lives. It is not known at what age, or even if, they die of old-age: all that is known is that they can live far in excess of 1,000 years. Despite their "cuteness", they are known to be legendary geniuses of the universe.
Nibblonians are not just carnivores, but also genius apex predators, which means that they're on top of the food chain. Despite their tiny size, they can devour massive creatures over a whopping 9000 times larger than themselves in just a few seconds or less, it is unknown if there is an upper limit on this ability but they have been seen eating creatures of a comparable size to a jumbo-sized Argentinosaurus. Eating more than a whopping 99.9% of their body weight extremely fast with no apparent discomfort or signs of distension to their digestive ability allows them to break down food almost immediately in seconds and compress the waste into an ultra heavy element known as dark matter, an extremely heavy material formerly used as a starship fuel. The mechanism by which meat, which is made of ordinary matter, is converted into dark matter inside the Nibblonian advanced digestive tract is unknown, although it can be assumed it may be based on a kind of black hole or pocket dimension which would explain their ability to eat much larger creatures whole and not visibly gain any weight. They are capable of swallowing themselves to enter their digestive systems and get out of a universe.
The Nibblonian eyestalk is capable of emitting several types of energy that can wipe memories or burn skin. It is also described as a psychic-powered feature that Nibblonians use.
Unlike other people and animals All of the Nibblonians have 2 sharp teeth on their teeth (except for Fiona who doesn't have 2 sharp teeth on her teeth).
Government[edit | edit source]
The Nibblonian Ruling Council is the ruling authority over the Nibblonian civilization and is sited at the Hall of Eternity which is located ten miles west of the exact centre of the universe, on Eternium. Ken and Fiona were two leaders on the council. Lord Nibbler serves as the Ambassador to Earth.
