Upgrade is a mass of black, metallic liquid. He has red circuitry all over his body, part of which forms his eye. He wears the Simplicitrix on his chest.
Orange Al-Ternate Upgrade
An orange Al-Ternate Upgrade has been seen. He has different black markings on his body with different orange circuit designs, as well. His Simplicitrix resides on his chest.
- Upgrade is not completely solid, as he can be both liquid and gelatinous. Due to this, he can reshape himself to let projectiles or blows pass through him by creating a hole in his body at will.
- Upgrade can use his internal nanotechnology to merge with and possess any technology by encasing himself over it. The size of the device is not significant and he controls it as naturally as he would his own body. When he merges, he upgrades the technology, making the technology he possess far more advanced and futuristic and causing new features to form on it. Upgrade can reconfigure technology to suit for any situation. Possessing technology allows him to transform it with seemingly no limit, such as merging with a baseball launching machine and turning it into a tripod-like robot that fired a seemingly infinite amount of baseballs, while the moment he un-merged with it, it returned to normal. He can also make his head or his face appear anywhere on the machines he possesses.
- Occasionally, he can merge with organic beings, as long as there is machinery integrated within them.
- Upgrade has the ability to launch a powerful red energy blast from his eye.
- Upgrade can form energy constructs such as an energy spike, though mostly while merged with machinery and upgrading them into weapons.
- Upgrade has the capability to travel through electrical currents. He can also phase through most any metal or technology.
- Upgrade can gently descend through the air, similar to a parachute.
- Being inorganic, Upgrade is also able to survive in the vacuum of space.
- Upgrade also possesses enhanced strength.
- Due being made of living metal, Upgrade is able to regenerate himself.
- If Upgrade is merged with a gaming system, he can also merge with the creatures inside the game being played.
- Due to Alan's abilities, Upgrade has the ability of fourth wall awareness.
- Upgrade is weak against electricity, being living metal.
- Upgrade is sensitive to electromagnetic pulse/fields and magnetic fields.
- Upgrade can be hurt if he is pulled long and hard enough.
- Upgrade can be affected by technorganic viruses.
- Upgrade is attached to technology while it is damaged, he will be harmed as well.
- If Upgrade is merged with a gaming system, and the playable character is hit with an attack such as electricity, Upgrade, and others close enough to him, will be pulled into the game.

Upgrade's dragon name is Geltbuldyun, which can be broken up into, "Gelt Buld Yun," meaning metal form new.
- Upgrade was unlocked in The Trial of Alan Nomaly due to Alan's interactions with Gearo. However, according to Darama, Gearo is not the DNA donor for Upgrade.
- Nolan North was chosen as Upgrade's voice actor due to Upgrade having Alan's voice. Ralph Fiennes was chosen as the voice of Negative Upgrade for the same reason.
- Upgrade was able to change Weiss' Semblance some, causing her glyphs to generate copies of Blitzwulf, Snare-Oh, and Frankenstrike. Her glyphs typically only generate copies of enemies she has fought before, otherwise.
