Ubik (ユービック Yūbikku) is a member of the God Hand. His voice actors are Chafurin in Japanese and Christian Collingwood in English.
He has the form of a small floating figure wearing glasses that appear to be imbedded in his face and having tentacle-like legs.
Ubik appears to be a deceiver; he is able to conjure up images from the past to persuade potential Apostle's and God Hands to fulfill the ritual of sacrifice. He can also manipulate time(he can open up the time dimension and view events from the past) and the other God hand members. Like the other God Hand he can see the future and manipulate casualty.
Ubik first appears in the story with the rest of the God Hand when they are summoned by the Count after he is beaten by Guts. During this sequence, Ubik is the one who reveals to Theresia the true fate of her Mother.
During the Incarnation Ceremony, Ubik, along with the other members of the God Hand, briefly manifested using the dead body of The Imp (Mozgus's disciple) and several of the evil spirits that had gathered in order to witness Femto's rebirth.
Ubik is also shown when the World Transformation occurs. He is seen surrounded by many images taken from the "Hell" panel of an actual painting, done by Hieronymous Bosch, named "The Garden of Earthly Delights." Both the panel and the painting depict many fantastic yet disturbing visions that could represent Ubik's nature and purpose, one of the more interesting things being the giant tree man he rides in, believed by many to symbolize the Antichrist (a similar figure Ubik could very well have made Griffith into).
- His name is taken from Philip K. Dick's "Ubik".
