Horror is looking into the eyes of the Shadowed One, knowing you are about to die ... and then being forced to live. Horror is waking each day to see every part of your body moving on its own, a shifting mass of Protodites where once was solid metal and living tissue. Horror is what is in the eyes of your partners when they look at you ... and in the cries of your enemies when your swarm engulfs them. Don't talk to me about fear, creature — I am fear!

Notable Attacks / Techniques:

Protodites: After being struck by the Shadowed One's eyebeams, Zaktan's body reacted strangely, and its structure changed to be composed of billions upon billions of Protodites, ancient, microscopic Rahi. Due to the unique composition of his body, Zaktan can disperse into a swarm of Protodites at will, allowing him to swarm his opponents and dodge attacks, as they simply pass through his Protodites. It even allows him to regenerate; after Teridax destroyed most of his body with a single sonic attack, Zaktan was able to survive by piecing together a portion of his body from molecular fragments.
