Zaptor is a very quirky Electroid. He loves to lighten the mood with his jokes and is easily distracted by his love of Hamlogna Sandwiches, which can also blind him from the feelings of others. He cares about the environment, but has a tendency to focus on fixing a single matter and ignoring the consequences of fixing it in the end.
Zaptor is mostly yellow in color. His body also acts as his face and is long and oval-like. He has an eye on each sides of his face and a pronounced jaw with three sharp teeth that point upwards. On top of his head is a Tesla coil with three discs cutting through it and two purplish-blue lightning bolts on top. His arms are fairly short and slender and are yellow in color with grey accents. His hands are standard yellow pincers. His legs are fairly long and bowed with a grey accent on the bottom of each of them. His feet are yellow and fairly small, with two yellow toes on each of them.
He can store up a large amount of electricity and use it to power up his Tesla coil in a large electric blast.
Calling All Mixels
- Blinding Flash: Zaptor emits a beam of electricity, stunning and causing damage to enemies.
- Dance Party: Zaptor throws out a distraction, which is a disco ball, to attract Nixels and prevent them from attacking for a short time
- Overcharge: Zaptor charges an enemy with a large amount of powerful electricity that can even damage other Nixels in range.
Little is known about Zaptor's early life. However, he managed to gain a taste for hamlogna sandwiches, loving them enough to make them his favorite food.
While enjoying Cookironis with the other Mixels, he ended up fighting for the last one. When Vulk ended up with it, he zapped him into a rock to retrieve it, though ended up scared off when the Cragsters ended up Maxing and chased him. His brothers ended up coming to his rescue and the three of them Maxed as well. When the Infernites Max was formed, all three of them fought for the cookironi, but it ended up destroyed. However, when they saw a Nixel with a box to himself, they all gave chase. ("Cookironi")
Due to a miscommunication, Seismo and Shuff thought that Zaptor and the other Electroids were planning to sacrifice Krader, while in reality, they were doing a ritual for their Electroid Annual Dance Party. The Cragsters joined in on the party, and both tribes Maxed to compete in a dance contest. ("Electrorock")
While telling jokes with Vulk and while walking, he accidentally came across a pothole by falling into it. As he described how dangerous it is and how it ruined the landscape (while accidentally pushing Vulk into it two times), they decided to Mix and fix it, succeeding in doing that, yet also taking the environment with it. ("Pothole")
When Teslo was teaching him and Volectro on how many Electroids it takes to change a light bulb, the single light bulb keeping the room illuminated broke. Despite being scared at first, he helped look for a light bulb, though only found a hamlogna sandwich, and asks if it will help. Eventually, he Maxed using the Cubit Volectro had found to use the light bulb that Teslo found. ("Changing a Light Bulb")
He found himself up against a swarm of Nixels alongside his brothers. They Maxed to fend off the Nixels. ("Electroids MAX!")
He somehow managed to replace one of Shuff's Cubits with a Hamlogna Sandwich. ("Wrong Colors")
While at the Hamlogna Conveyer Belt, he got too impatient with the speed the sandwiches were coming out, so he cranked the speed up, unaware that Lunk and Tentro were now struggling to make them. Eventually, they Mixed and provided a huge pile of sandwiches, which Zaptor was ready to eat, only for Jawg to get to them first. ("Hamlogna Conveyer Belt Madness")
During the annual Mix Festival, he was in charge of the Hamlogna Sandwiches. While the Flain & Teslo Mix commented on his sandwich eating skills, he denied that he was eating any (as he slowly grabbed one). Eventually, he gave into his cravings and ate all of the sandwiches, which angered his brothers. Later, he was Nixed by the Mega Nixel Mixel Nixer, but was later returned to normal. ("Epic Comedy Adventure")
Zaptor, at some point, received a Mixamajig Key and 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 Electroids in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after.("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")
