The subject of this article won the award(s) of Best Infernite at the Mixels Wiki Fans' Choice Awards 2015!
Meltus may look like a scary dinosaur with fearsome looks, but he is actually a rather shy Mixel with a permanent sniffly cold and allergies to almost everything espacially to fire and lava. Whenever he and his fellow Infernite Cousins venture out to someplace new, he takes one sniff and starts sneezing flames. He often finds life hard with these allergies but despite them, he often does his best to get by. However, unlike Flamzer, he doesn't worry about safety.
Meltus has a red dress-like body with two red arms with black hands, a long red tail, and a fiery spike on the back. He has feet similar to Krader's with a head with eight teeth similar to Kraw's over a red jaw, with a grey nose emitting flames, and a dark red triangular tip on the front which connects to the top of the jaw including two eyes with reddish eyebrows connecting on top. On the top of his head, there are two fiery spikes on the front and back of each other.
In the cartoon, his red jaw doesn’t clip through the dark red part on the back on his head.
He has the ability to emit flames from his nostrils upon sneezing. He can also light the end of his tail on fire and control it like a hose.
Little is known about Meltus' past. However, he did develop allergies at some point.
At the welcoming party, he suffered from a bit of gas that was quickly fixed with some Oxy-Juice, which he later had to rescue with the help of Nurp-Naut from a Nixel and made the excuse that he was allergic to Rokit Sauce to avoid eating it.
However, he grew homesick and wished to go back home in the end. ("Mixel Moon Madness")
Meltus had attended a special convention with his Infernite brothers and alien tribes the Orbitons and Glowkies. At it, they competed in quite a few events. ("Mixels Convention Craze")
Meltus was one of almost all of the Mixels who searched and fought for the Mixamajig, and then captured by King Nixel. He maxed with his branch of the Infernites in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")

Meltus may look like a scary T-Rex, but this pampered Mixel is really a shy sweetheart with a permanent sniffly cold and allergies to everything.

Sneeze fire with shy and sweet-natured Mixel Meltus, 1 of 3 quirky members of the Infernites tribe featured in LEGO® Mixels™ Series 4 sets.
- He is said to be allergic when he is outside of the Magma Wastelands. It is unknown how this is possible. One possibility is that none of the things he is allergic to are present in said location.
- The spike on his nose is dark red in the cartoon, but on his LEGO model, it is orange like the spikes on the top of his head and back.
- He has six teeth on his LEGO model, while in the cartoon, he has eight, likely due to sizing issues.
- He is able to stand up normally, similar to a humanoid.
Behind the Scenes
Meltus was originally going to have ring pupils and a flaming tail tip, without the orange spike on his back. The head spikes were also less prominent.
Name and basis
Meltus's name is a pun on the word "melt" and "dinosaurus".
