Stitch is the name of the genetic experiment 626, a fictional alien protagonist from the Lilo & Stitch films and television program.

Stitch is a blue alien genetic creation standing between 3 and 3.5 feet tall, weigh 120 lb and strongly resembles mixture of a chimpanzee, a tasmanian devil, a koala and a french bulldog, though he's referred to as a dog throughout much of the franchise, that moves like a cross between a spider and a crab and behaves like a Tasmanian Devil. He has blue fur with darker marking on the back of his head and on his back as well, large rabbit/bat-like ears, large black, tear-shaped eyes, a domed round nose that rests in the center his face, between his eyes, and a wide Pac-Man-like mouth with sharp shark/gremlin-like teeth and a long pink tongue, clawed hands and stubby legs that have shorter claws themselves. A short tail juts out from his rear. He also has a limited ability to change his physical appearance, as he can retract a second set of arms, his antennae, his sharp claws and the three hair/porcupine/lionfish-like spines on his back into his body. In his "alien form" Stitch has a total of six limbs: four arms and two legs. He also has a pair of antennae that protrude from the crown of his head and a dorsal crest.
