Xana Awakens 268

Odd's original digital incarnation (Seasons 1-3) as shown in X.A.N.A. Awakens.

An Avatar, also called a virtual structure or digital incarnation, is a template used by Franz Hopper, and, more frequently, Jeremie to get a person into Lyoko.

Each of the Lyoko Warriors has an Avatar. Jeremie's Avatar has not yet been shown.

Overview

An Avatar is created by the Supercomputer whenever a new person enters Lyoko for the first time. (Before the person first arrives on Lyoko, the picture on their ID Card shows a generic "person" icon.) Jeremie hypothesized in "X.A.N.A. Awakens" that the Supercomputer is able to do this by taking the subconscious desires of a person and projecting them in the form of an Avatar.

An Avatar contains information about the person's Life points, weapons, etc. Avatars contain the Lyoko Warriors' ID Cards as well. Avatars, according to Jeremie in Revelation, are stored within the restricted access part of the Supercomputer, so their minds can't be directly possessed by X.A.N.A. unless their programming was modified.

Whenever a Lyoko Warrior is hit by a laser, a display comes up showing the Avatar and the spot on the body that was hit. This indicates a loss of life points.

The Avatars have been upgraded and changed over time.

Changes

Animation Prototyping

  • Ulrich's model changed drastically from Garage Kids to Season 1. His pants switched from a poofy 70s design to a streamlined look. His Katana also changed designs.
  • Ulrich had an eyepiece in Garage Kids. However, this was removed.

Changes between Seasons 1 and 2

Changes between Season 2 and Season 3, and during Season 3

Changes during Season 4

  • William's avatar was completely redesigned as a byproduct of X.A.N.A. possessing him. He also gained Super Smoke.
  • Jeremie reprogrammed Aelita's avatar to have wings and a different design. She ended up with a pink body suit with a mini skirt and different makeup.
