After Steel disables the shield of the alien spacecraft, N-Tek's forces eventually head to a chamber and find the Ultralink, who was dormant. After getting it, they left the ship and implanted bombs that blew up after they left the vehicle.
Eventually, Troy Winter, a highly dangerous bounty hunter, steals the Ultralink to deliver it to Miles Dread, but he finds out that it was a missing a part and consequently it was unable to work properly. Eventually, Troy recovers the missing part and realizes the immense power of the Ultralink and decides to keep it to himself. After he opens the suitcase, he sees a message of Dread saying that he knew that Troy would betray him. The Ultralink blows up and ends up encrusted on his chest, which results in a monstrous mutation that transforms Troy into Extroyer, a versatile villain with the ability of shapeshifting into animals.
Linking Abilities: Before it was damaged, the Ultralink had the ability of bonding with something or someone and enhance its physical capabilities in order to reach maximum potential for destruction.
Animal Mimicry: After it was incrusted on Troy's chest, the Ultralink gave him the ability of shapeshifting into animals or even into other Ultralinks.
Not much is known about its appearance, but it had the same shape as Steel. It is hinted that it was a purple variation of some Ultralink subspecies.
As seen in The Thrill of the Hunt, the Ultralink has the same shape of Steel.
After the Ultralink blew up on Troy, it is now located on his left chest.
