The Kryptomites are recurring antagonists throughout the first generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. They are small crystalline creatures created by Lena Luthor composed of kryptonite that come in a variety of colors.
Kryptomites are short creatures, looking like jagged flat rocks with eyes, mouth and rudimentary limbs. Yet they are surprisingly quick and nimble, and their stumpy, fingerless hands don't preclude them from operating heavy machinery.
There are many varieties from differently-colored Kryptomites due to their origins: green, red, blue, yellow, orange and purple. Nevertheless, their bodies' radiation have also effects on humans, albeit not on Tamaraneans.
Kryptomites are extremely mischievous creatures who love wreaking havoc and creating chaos purposelessly, particularly if they're making some hero's life harder. They are also intelligent enough to work with others, operate advanced machines, and understand human idioms. They have apparently developed their own language, even though it sounds like gibberish to everyone but Lena Luthor.
They are very loyal to Lena Luthor. Lena has admitted she manufactured them because she doesn't manage to find henchmen who are able to put up with her.
Powers and Abilities
Kryptomites have displayed a veritable array of powers, some of them stemming from their Kryptonite physiology:
- Bio-Fission: Kryptomites have shown the ability to duplicate themselves.
- Bio-Fusion/Hive-Mind Communication: Kryptomites have been known to fuse their bodies in order to create a one, more powerful Kryptomite.
- Flight: Kryptomites are able to float.
- Mind Control: Depending on the kind of Kryptomite, their bodies' radiation can make people irrationally mad, paranoid, confused or frightened:
- Purple Kryptomites: Use hypnosis to control the minds of anyone nearby.
- Yellow Kryptomites: Instill fear.
- Green Kryptomites: Weaken Kryptonians.
- Blue Kryptomites: Create confusion for all who get too close.
- Red Kryptomites: Bring out the anger in almost everyone.
- Orange Kryptomites: Make people paranoid.
- Regeneration: When a Kryptomite is shattered, a new Kryptomite grows from every shard.
Depiction in the web series
In Tales From the Kryptomites Part 1, Lena Luthor creates a green Kryptomite using dirt from Supergirl's jet. It escapes from Lena's warehouse and disables Supergirl before escaping Batgirl's batrope and then being smashed by Wonder Woman, turning into several more. In Tales From the Kryptomites Part 2, Lena creates a red Kryptomite in her lab while Super Hero High students try to control Kryptomites as they wreak havoc in Metropolis. They are eventually defeated when the students use a solution created Frost and Poison Ivy that turns them into harmless crystals. Harley Quinn however, keeps one anger-inducing red Kryptomite as it matches her dorm decor. In Seeing Red, Harley's red Kryptomite sows discord in Super Hero High School, making staff and students fight each other. Starfire, whose Tamaranean physiology makes her immune from its powers, discovers it and chases it around the school. The Kryptomite uses its powers to manipulate Poison Ivy to stop her. It is eventually defeated when Starfire manipulates Ivy into using the anti-Kryprtomite chemical on it. In the film Intergalactic Games, Lena creates Kryptomites as her personal army. During the Games' banquet, a Kryptomite escapes Lena's office and kicks a meatball at Lashina, instigating a food fight. It is discovered by Batgirl, who chases it down the hall before being attacked by it. Ivy and Frost then defeat it with the anti-Kryptomite chemical. The Kryptomite army appear in mech suits when Lena and Platinum invade the stadium during the final event to destroy the Super Hero High students and battle against Super Hero High students and Blackfire. They also appear piloting small ships using kryptonite on Supergirl. When Cyborg destroys their canopies with his sonic cannon, they are left defenseless to the anti-kryptomite chemical, which Ivy, Frost and Batgirl use to defeat them.
In Target Practice, Starfire accidentally creates a Kryptomite when she throws a frisbee at a park, which lands in Lena Luthor’s warehouse and causes chemicals to spill. The Kryptomite manages to multiply first by stepping into a puddle and then by shattering when Starfire inadvertently hits them again with another frisbee. The Kryptomites then attack Supergirl but she is freed by Starfire, who knocks them away with more frisbees. The Kryptomites are then captured by Wonder Woman’s Lasso. In the first part of For the Girl Who Has Everything, Kryptomites appear trying to scrap and loot the vehicles of Super Hero High students at the school garage. They depower Supergirl, but are defeated by Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. In the second part, Kryptomites appear in Supergirl’s dream looting her jet. She defeats one by punching it and Grodd tells her of her immunity to kryptonite. As the rest of the Kryptomites get away, Supergirl defeats them with her freeze breath.
Depiction in LEGO media
In Body Building, Batgirl, Cyborg and Bumblebee are put in a group for a class project, but it’s hard to be a team if everyone wants to do it their own way. When Lena Luthor unleashes her new rainbow Kryptomites to wreak havoc on Metropolis, the heroes have to team up and work together to save the day. In Crazed & Confused, blue Kryptomites make Beast Boy attempt to turn himself into a turkey sandwich as Supergirl calls him "Feast Boy". Later on, when Mad Harriet threatens Harley Quinn for ruing her 'crazy' plans, Wonder Woman throws the two Kryptomites at them, causing Mad Harriet to willingly surrender to Harley, and Harley to start an essay to earn an A+. In Need for Speed, the Flash is running faster than ever before and creating chaos in Metropolis, all because a confusing blue Krytomite has been planted on his back by evil Lena Luthor. In Trading Places, Lena Luthor and Killer Moth kidnap Batgirl disguised as Supergirl, and threaten to harm her with a green Kryptomite if she doesn't tell them the weaknesses of her classmates. When Supergirl intervenes to rescue Batgirl, Lena Luthor is confused at the sight of two Supergirls, noting that the Kryptomite next to her isn't even the blue confusion one. In Wonder Waitress, a blue Kryptomite is shown as Supergirl comes out of Capes & Bowls Cafe as she tells Krypto to drop it. Along came Mad Harriet later that day as the blue Kryptomite confuses her. Mad Harriet is mad at Steve Trevor as she looks at Gorilla Grodd for giving her all the pies. In Brain Drain, Eclipso joins in as Lena Luthor calls Eclipso, as the green and red Kryptomites attack Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl. Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl have now made it to LexCorp and sees Lena and Wonder Woman asks Lena that she had it yesterday or not. Lena calls to the Kryptomites as the Kryptomites look at Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl. Wonder Woman thinks that they're not scary, kinda cute as Lena makes the Kryptomites attack them. In Super-Villain High, Lena Luthor sneaks her Kryptomites into Super Hero High so they can frame Poison Ivy, Cheetah, Catwoman and Frost of causing mischief around the school. When Lena and Cheetah expose an undercover Green Lantern, Lena Luthor sends her yellow Kryptomites to torture Green Lantern, who eventually passes out. Amanda Waller then transforms back into Lena and asks the green and red Kryptomites to join her. She then is asks the green and red Kryptomites to grow into ultimate Kryptomites.
Kryptomites appear in every set of Lego Wave I.
- The Kryptomites have various similarities to the Gremlins from the 1984 comedy horror film Gremlins. Both are mischievous, small creatures that cause chaos for fun and able to self-multiplication.
