Traeger is the mysterious primary antagonist the MECH-X4 crew faces in Season 2. He appears to be a
Hand From The Ooze

Traeger Arising From The Ooze

portion of red ooze which has somehow achieved sentience.

  He is portrayed by Dan Payne.  


Apparently created amidst the final battle between MECH-X4 and Seth Harper's creature, Traeger first appears, as a hand rising from a pool of ooze. Shortly thereafter, he establishes a mental link with Kim Grey who recovers his inert form and secrets it into a hidden laboratory and kidnaps Seth Harper to help her grant her new master the power of mobility. After gaining his full powers, Traeger has begun fulfilling his ambition of world domination.


In Versus The Dark Night, the power the monster was sucking was inserted into Traeger. The power was enough to stop him getting squished by the Mech-X4. Grey asked Traeger why he didn't destroy Mech-X4 and asked him what was next.

In Versus The Tech Army, Traeger and Grey were at the airport and stole polymine which protects weapons during cold weathers. Traeger and Grey stole a plane to go to the Secret Government Weapons Facility.

In Versus Traeger, Traeger broke into the weapon facility. Some military guards found Traeger but Traeger made them unconscious. Traeger found Ryan and Mark. Harris and Spyder helped Ryan and Mark from Traeger. He escaped but the MECH-X4 Team found him. Traeger transformed himself into a monster to scare the team away. Traeger fought Mech-X4 in his monster form and ended up winning but he escaped.

In Versus Velocity and Veracity, Traeger and Grey were ready for their next plan. Traeger showed Grey the Primorphous Gel in the Arctic.

In Versus The Arctic, Traeger saw Mech-X4 and transformed into a monster to attack Mech-X4 in the sky. Traeger got defeated in the sky and crashed in the Arctic. Traeger was still pretending he was after the pile of ooze. He tricked the Mech-X4 team to fire the X-Weapon onto the pile of ooze. Traeger ripped the arms off Mech-X4. He jumped through the head of Mech-X4 to finish them off. Traeger was going to turn Ryan into a monster like him but he escaped. Traeger ripped the robot in two using his monster form.

In Versus The Wolves at the Door, Traeger was trying to find Ryan. Traeger found Ryan, but didn't capture him because he didn't manage to get him.

In Versus Miami, Grey returned to Traeger and gave him the plant. Traeger put a drop of ooze into the plant. Traeger's next plan was to make the plant for everybody, including his brother.

Powers and Abilities

  • Telekinetic Abilities: He has absolute control over red ooze, which his body is apparently largely composed of. He can even control the substance within Grey's bloodstream to ensure her co-operation. Traeger may be able to control all forms of ooze, which may explain how Harris fell under his control (as Harris may still have traces of ooze in his system from when he accidentally ingested some in the first episode ). He has also proclaimed, that he can project his thoughts into others. He can also emit waves of energy to knock back his opponents in combat.
  • Monster Form: Traeger can shift his body into a giant reptilian creature, capable of fighting MECH-X4 in hand-to-hand combat. Additionally, he can fire laser-like blasts from his mouth.
  • Super Strength As one of his most noticeable powers, Traeger has unmatched strength. This enabled him to avoid getting crushed by MECH-X and throw it off balance. In Spyder's own word he 'He threw the robot like a rag doll.', and this was while he was in human form.
  • Flight: In his monster form he can energize himself and enable himself to fly, while also hiding himself from MECH-X4's scanners.
