These suits were specifically made for the Kratt Brothers. However, just rarely others can wear them as well. Few are shown to posesse one.
ConstructionIn an inert mode, the suit consists of jacket, equipped with slots for the disk and gloves with DNA scanners. Material of the suit never made more precise, and most likely is some form of composite plastics (judging by the absence of ever breaks or cracks)
When activated, the suit "forms" from an unknown source of additional structural elements, such as wings, animal ears, fangs, etc. Since the mass of these elements clearly superior to the mass of the suit, they certainly are delivered from the outside. In the episode "Polar bears Don't Dance", some elements of the costume walrus were mounted on it after activation, by teleportation from Tortuga HQ. Seems logical to assume that items such as wings, fangs appear on a suit by teleporting them from Tortuga.
The energy source of the suit is unknown. Based on the fact that the suit can obviously run very long time and does not need to be recharged, it's probably some type of ultra-compact nuclear power element (hard to imagine something more compact and durable, able to operate even in the cold sea water)
Each power suit has been designed to share it's users theme/favorite color:
- Chris - Green
- Martin - Blue
- Aviva - Purple
- Koki - Orange (Never actually shown, but a device she used in one episode was orange themed. )
- Jimmy - Orange
Despite how much power the suits are shown to posesse, they have some very strong weaknesses as well. Such as being pretty sensitive to damage from sharp objects.
Basic elements can somewhat tamper with them as well. Also foods and mud, unless the suits have been food or mud proofed.
There have been showed to be many malfuntions with the CPS, usally dealing with the sensitivity of it. Usually these range from being stuck in the suit, or the suit itself being damaged.
Tazzy Chris - T-Devil - In one episode the T-Devil bit Chris' suit, causing it to activate and turn him into a half T-Devil half-human hybrid that kept acting strangely. This was fixed when Aviva shut down the suit.
The Blue and the Gray - Acorn/Oak Tree - While Martin was holding an Acorn a blue jay pecked his suit, causing him to turn into an Acorn, then into an oak tree! When Aviva relined the disc, it was fixed.
Polar Bears Don't Dance - Walrus - Chris was stuck in his Walrus suit until Martin put snow down his back, causing him to jump out of the suit.
The Blue and The Gray - Squirrel - Chris was stuck in his Squirrel suit and when the episode ended, he was still in it.
Happy Turkey Day - Wild Turkey - Martin got stuck in his Wild Turkey suit when he slammed into the tree. He was still in it when the episode ended.
Neck and Neck - Giraffe - Martin got stuck in the suit because Necklace took Martin's Deactivation Mogual. When Aviva put Martin's mogual back in,instead of deactivating Chris activated Giraffe power and they played the new game they created Giraffe Soccer with Martin.
- It's been theorized that because plants are living, the kratts can also use them for the suits.
- The CPS needs a Deactivation Mogual so it can deactivate (as seen in Neck and Neck).
- The Kratts can activate another CPS if they're already in one.
- If there's another color to a creature then the Kratts will have to reactivate until they find the color they want.
- Sometimes the CPS will be the color of animal instead the normal color or it will be a mix of that color.
- If the CPS is worn by someone else than the Kratt bros then they would have their favor color not MK&CK's.
