Vampos is a highly energetic sports enthusiast, despite his appearance. He is also said to be very relaxed and calm.
Vampos has a head with two extremely long teeth connected to a square-like part of the body in front of two sides with an eye on each, and light cyan spikes on each side. On the top of the body is two pointy ears on both sides of the head, with two cat-like ears between. He has a long body which slopes up at the back, and two small bat wings. He has long legs with feet including two light cyan toenails on each. He also has navy blue eyelids.
In the cartoon, just like Flain, he has two ring eyes over one ring eye and one dot eye.
Vampos can fly very quickly and is amazing at aerial acrobatics. He is also capable of creating incredible bursts of energy, and has glow-in-the-dark eyes. Finally, he can also create bright tornadoes.
Little is known about Vampos' past. At one point in time, he managed to gain an obsession with sports. During a time when he tried to introduce himself and his brothers to their Orbiton neighbors, it ended in a botched attack from the Orbitons, leaving the Glowkies to leave in confusion.
During a supposed attack, he tailed Niksput and Flamzer, only to find himself running away back to the caves. He and Boogly ruined Globert's attempt at a dramatic introduction, and eventually invited them to join in a cave rave. He later helped perform a big musical number to tell about the dangers of the Gravity Plug.
When Flamzer claimed that he did not exist outside of his story, he broke down into tears. ("Mixel Moon Madness")
Vampos had attended a special convention with his Glowkie brothers, fellow alien tribe the Orbitons, and new friends, the Infernites. At it, they competed in quite a few events. ("Mixels Convention Craze")
Vampos 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 Glowkies in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after.("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")

Light up the sky with acrobatic Vampos, with glow-in-the-dark eyes, 1 of 3 Glowkies tribe members featured in LEGO® Mixels™ Series 4 sets.
- His fangs seem to block his mouth, which may cause his dialogue to sound hysterical, however, in the show, he is seen talking fine. It is unknown what he sounds like without his fangs blocking his voice. He often gets his fangs stuck in something, finding it hard to get them out.
- His LEGO description says he is about 5" (13 cm), but his toy is closer to 3" (9 cm). A similar problem happens with fellow Glowkie Boogly, as well as Splasho.
- He is the only Glowkie in existence to have two eyes. (not counting Bats)
Behind the Scenes
Vampos's eyelids originally made him look more tired and shy, slightly opposite to his personality.
Name and basis
Vampos's name is a play on the word "vampire" with the Greek suffix "-os" (used for male names in Greek) added on. He is also the second Mixel to have a Greek-based name, the first being Seismo (whose name is a Greek root meaning "earthquake").
As his name and appearance suggest, he is based on a vampire bat.
