Hound shape animal, Wildmutt is an animalistic species from the planet Vulpin. His powers strongly rely on his nose which uses heightened smell ability to track the opponent. Besides that, the eyeless aline also use echolocation and thermographic neck gills to navigate.
Wildmutt is one of the famous Ben 10 aliens who first appeared in the episode, And Then There Were 10. Later in the next season, In Ben Ultimate Alien Ben Tennyson can be seen transforming into its upgraded version called as Ultimate Wildmutt.
If we talk about its powers, Ultimate Wildmutt has an incredible sense of smell, and its even more significant than its base form.
In this form, Wildmutts design has slightly changed regarding his larger body scale, gills & its fur red color. Also, the Ultimatrix symbol resides on his chest. Another change is that in his Ultimate form, Wildmutt can talk, unlike its base form.
Wildmutt may not look like is the strongest aliens as we expected, but when it comes down to tracking enemies or in a battle where eyes fail to capture situation, Wildmutt is a decent shot.

The Omnitrix and the Ultimatrix
Voiced by:Yuri Lowenthal
The original Omnitrix
The original Omnitrix in AF
The new Omnitrix
The device created by Azmuth that Ben Tennyson uses to transform into different aliens.
- The Ace: A variation. All of the alien forms present in the Omnitrix are actually the optimal genetic specimen of their species. Basically, they're to their species as Captain America is to humanity (peak and perfect physical condition).
- Most blatant seen with Bullfrag, a genetically optimal and healthy Incursean: While the standard Inkursean grunts are human-sized, gaunt, and frail-looking due to their rather poor diets (except for Milleous), Bullfrag meanwhile is taller than the average human and has a Heroic Build. The only other Incursean to look significantly different is Attea.
- Downplayed but noticeable with Fourarms as well. Female Tetramands are stronger than males, and Ben as Fourarms faced off against the Warrior Princess Looma, Warlord Gar's Greatest Warrior and not only matched her in strength, but defeated her in combat.
- Black Box: Ben has no idea how the Omnitrix works at the beginning of the story; the best he can do is turning and pushing the dial. This frequently causes him to take the wrong transformation, turn back to normal at the wrong time, or merely make mistakes.
- Chest Insignia: The Omnitrix's symbol will appear somewhere on the body of every alien it transforms its wearer into. Most commonly in the center of the chest, but it does vary for some.
- Clingy MacGuffin: The thing is stuck on Ben's wrist. This prevents villains from simply taking it from him. Though by the last season of Alien Force this is no longer true, as Ben knows exactly how to remove the thing whenever he wants. He just doesn't want to.
- Discard and Draw: Since Ben can only use one transformation at a time, his set of powers will change according to which form he is using.
- The Omnitrix, due to housing far more potential alien forms than any one user could hope to sort through, generally operates in sets of ten randomly selected (though generally balanced) forms. Though others can be unlocked later, it will default to another set of ten if left inactive for too long, requiring older forms to be re-unlocked.
- Early Game Hell: For lack of a better term. Ben's first set of aliens are balanced and strong in their own way, but it left him with few counters or specialists beyond 'this one is strong' or 'this one is smart'. This often forced Ben to get vastly more creative with certain aliens than he should have needed to. Later aliens gave him more specialized powersets, allowing him to react to situations with more finesse than if he was restricted to the original ten.
- Also, the Omnitrix comes without a manual of any kind. This means that Ben and any other user has to learn every individual power and weakness of every alien on the fly, and how the device works in the first place.
- Early Installment Weirdness: When Ben first finds it, it behaves like a piece of Organic Technology prone to Body Horror. It unhinges from the front like a blob of slime, lacks the green/black circuitry, and the dial/faceplate is an isolated piece of hardware. In "Back With A Vengeance", it unhinges more measuredly but from the back. In the movie, the dial has a column of hardware attached when Azmuth removes it. Likewise, the original series depicted it as growing with its wearer (the first seen Ben 10,'s was bulkier than both those of Ben 10 and Ken 10), a detail which none of the later series incorporated.
- Emerald Power: The Omnitrix's signature color is green, which also happens to be the favorite color of both Azmuth and Ben.
- Empathic Weapon: Strongly hinted; the Omnitrix is never specifically stated to possess a will of its own, but it does act like it had one occasionally. This is explicitly confirmed by Ben in the Omniverse finale. The Omnitrix has a fail-safe that will turn him into whatever form is necessary to avoid his death.
- Eyes Are Mental: Though this wasn't the case in the original series, from Alien Force onwards, all of Ben's transformations have green eyes, just like Ben himself. This is why he wore sunglasses when he infiltrated the Incurseans as Bullfrag.
- Flanderization: The Omnitrix's tendency to give Ben the wrong alien started out as only occasional, only to get worse over the course of the Original Series and even worse by the time of Omniverse, where it ends up becoming a surprise when he actually gets the alien he wants. It has reached a point where Ben doesn't even try to select an alien and just push the dial while hoping for the best. He complains about this to Azmuth, who merely blames Ben's lack of dexterity and habit of smacking the watch too hard (it's worth noting that Ben at times has visibly selected the wrong alien and failed to notice).
- The first two seasons of Ben Alien Force did avert this with Ben only miss-transforming twice due to the dial getting jarred by outside forces. Its implied that the Omnitrix re-calibration fixed the issue and it was only after he tried hacking the Omnitrix in the season 3 premiere that it started to actively malfunction again. And the Ultimatrix was an unfinished prototype, fixed by Albedo with multiple issues such as the Ultimate forms becoming sentiant, so it giving Ben the wrong alien from time to time is understandable.
- Averted in the reboot series: In the first half of Season 1, Ben got quite regularly the wrong alien, but it was implied it was due to his inexperience with the device, along with it still being a prototype. It only ever happened once in Season 2 ("The 11th Alien: Part 1") after Upgrade rebooted the watch, and has barely happened in Season 3 (as of now, only in "Baby Buktu" does Ben get the wrong alien).
- Forgot About His Powers: Ben rarely seems to remember that he can switch forms simply by tapping the Omnitrix symbol, wherever it's located on his body. In one episode, he accidentally changes into Whampire during the day in a desert, and runs around in agony, burning to death until Max taps the Omnitrix and changes him to Four Arms.
- Fusion Dance:
- In the original series, when the Omnitrix's faceplate was removed, it resulted in alien fusions with severe disadvantages.
- Stinkfly + Four Arms = Stink Arms. Four Arms's weight made it difficult to fly, and he was also weaker than Four Arms.
- Diamondhead + Grey Matter = Diamond Matter. Grey Matter's size with Diamondhead's abilities. Naturally, he's much weaker than Diamondhead, but he can cut through trees.
- Heatblast + Ripjaws = Heat Jaws. This form not only had weaker flames than Heatblast, but his own heat very quickly dries out the Ripjaws portion, nearly causing him to suffocate himself. Turns out this form is actually not as bad as what Ben thought it to be initially, as going underwater strengthened his fire powers. He is also stronger than Ripjaws.
- Ben 10, in Omniverse can do this at will with his Biomnitrix. With control to which aliens to use, he can create fusions that are actually advantageous.
- Four Arms + Humungousaur = Fourmungousaur. Humungousaur's body, Four Arms's features and high jumping ability, and the combined strength of both.
- Atomix + Alien X = Atomic X. Just as broken as it sounds (barring the inability to stop a Chronosapien Time Bomb). Demonstrated abilities include teleportation, super-strength that is able to send Vilgax flying with a flick of the finger, and the creation of black holes. Word of God states that he has Alien X's powers while circumventing the need for Serena and Bellicus.
- Crashhopper + Shocksquatch + Crashocker. Crashopper's body and leaping ability, and Shocksquatch's features and electrical power.
- Upgrade + Juryrigg = Uprigg. Juryrigg's body, Upgrade's metal skin, and the combined technological talents of both.
- Way Big + Upchuck = Big Chuck. A smaller version of Way Big's body, with Upchuck-like dimensions and face. He has a portion of Way Big's strength, and Upchuck's regurgitative powers.
- Humungousaur + Goop = Humungoopsaur. Humungousaur's strength and size with Goop's gelatinous body.
- In the reboot episode "The Innervasion" Ben due to being inside the Omnitrix was able to merge the DNA of Four Arms, XLR8, Diamondhead, and Heatblast in a single super-powerful alien, with the combined powers of the four and no negative drawback.
- In the original series, when the Omnitrix's faceplate was removed, it resulted in alien fusions with severe disadvantages.
- Hour of Power: It can only sustain transformation for 10 minutes at a time, without Master Control or Life-Form Lock. It's longer or shorter as the plot demands it.
- Imported Alien Phlebotinum: It was built by the First Thinker Azmuth and supposed to be delivered to Max Tennyson on Earth but Ben found it, and since his DNA was close enough to Max's, it accepted him.
- Informed Ability: The Omnitrix used in Omniverse is supposed to be a perfected version of the original Omnitrix, but it has yet to display anything the original Omnitrix couldn't do, is more likely to give Ben an alien he doesn't want, and has a shorter time limit to stay in alien form. On the other hand, it has no cooldown time between transformations, allows him to return to human form whenever he wants, and damage taken while in alien form doesn't carry over into human form. While the problems were later vaguely explained by Azmuth as Ben being too rough with it, the device itself still has yet to show any improvement over the original Omnitrix or even the Ultimatrix. Part of the problem is the design is just less practical compared to the earlier versions, with the alien icons often being difficult to distinguish compared to the holograms of the AF/UA era or the outline icons of the original series.
- The shorter time limit and lack of cooldown also are something of a Series Continuity Error, seeing how the flashback sequences that feature the year-old Ben have the original Omnitrix function in exactly the same way.
- Loyal Phlebotinum: Well, it can work on someone else technically, but once it has chosen a host, removing it is a difficult prospect at best (without intricate knowledge of its operation, anyway). The Omnitrix used in Omniverse is designed to only work for Ben. Unfortunately, this means that any sufficient change to Ben's biometrics by outside sources can render it mostly inoperable.
- Made of Indestructium: The Omnitrix has never been physically damaged by anything other than itself. Ben's father once went through his entire toolbox without making so much as a scratch on it, and in the final episode of Omniverse, it tanks a point-blank explosion from the universe-destroying Annihilargh while activating its life-preserving failsafe. Seemingly the only other way to damage it is by hacking it or removing one of its parts.
- Magic Pants: Whenever Ben transforms, his clothes either adapt to his new form (most of the aliens in the Original Series and Omniverse) or disappear (in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien), only to come back when he turned back to human in both case. Notably, Word of God actually did give an explanation for that (at least in Alien Force); nanomachines inside the Omnitrix break down his clothes and store them until his transformation ends. Presumably, the same nanomachines also modify them to fit the alien forms in the other series. invoked
- The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Certain forms change Ben's personality as well, such as Brainstorm and Grey Matter making him smarter, or him becoming a Boisterous Bruiser as Rath.
- Mon: An unusual example, as the aliens don't fight for humans, but the humans become the monsters themselves.
- Multiform Balance: With over 1,, alien forms with varying powers, the Omnitrix can allow its wearer to adapt to any situation imaginable. In theory, anyway.
- New Powers as the Plot Demands: The alien forms occasionally display abilities never hinted at before or ever seen again, which were handwaved by Man of Action as "Omnitrix glitches".
- Omniscient Database: The Codon Stream, for the previous models. Since the Codon Stream and Primus have been erased from continuity, the Omnitrix in Omniverse doesn't rely on the Codon Stream, instead having all of the DNA stored within itself in a computerized form.
- Palette Swap: Used for the Emerald Power color-scheme to differentiate Alternate Universe users that aren't direct past, future, or contemporary counterparts to Ben.
- Recurring Element: The first alien Ben used was Heatblast. Following this, generally, the first alien anyone uses for the first time is Heatblast or comparable.
- The first alien Kevin hybridized with after absorbing the Omnitrix was Heatblast. This was also the first power he demonstrated at the end of his episode. The first alien Gwen transforms into is Heatblast as well (natch given it was a retelling of Ben's origin with Gwen instead).
- The first mutation Dr. Amino causes with the Omnitrix's faceplate creates a giant Heatblast/bat hybrid.
- Bothmovies released during original series run used Heatblast as first alien. note Although there are alternate versions of the former which have XLR8 or Eye Guy as the first alien used instead
- The first alien he transforms into in Alien Force is Swampfire, an Expy combining the general abilities of Heatblast and Wildvine. The first Half-Human Hybrid they find as the story arc builds is Half-Heatblast.
- The first Ultimate Alien he tries out is Ultimate Swampfire. The first alien that younger Ben transforms into after being brought to the future is Heatblast.
- The first alien form that Alpha absorbs from the Ultimatrix is Heatblast.
- The first alien predator introduced in Omniverse is Crabdozer, Heatblast's predator. The first compositeform Khyber uses after shacking up with Skurd was Crabdozer as well.
- Resurrective Immortality: Shown once in Alien Force and confirmed in Omniverse: if Ben were to ever die, the Omnitrix's AI can kick in and turn Ben into whatever form he needs to survive. When Vilgax shattered Ben as Chromastone into pieces, he was quickly reformed into Diamondhead, and when Ben was swallowed up by the Big Bang, he was automatically turned into Feedback. The Ultimatrix seems to lack this feature, as when Charmcaster stole Ben's soul in one episode, he was not revived until his soul was magically returned.
- Running Gag: The Omnitrix turning into the wrong alien. However, without this Ben would only have 10 aliens.
- Self-Destruct Mechanism: One that can destroy the universe, given it's allowed to charge for a few days. Giving it a duration of less than a minute (30 seconds) makes it just powerful enough to blow a human's arm off.
- Sex Shifter: Word of Godconfirms◊ that the Omnitrix can change the user's sex if they turn into a species that has more than one, but Ben doesn't know how to access this setting so his transformations remain male or something equivalent.
- Shapeshifting is the power it grants Ben and the forms available for shifting can escalate upwards forever.
- Shapeshifter Mode Lock: The Life-Form lock function allows Ben to lock himself into an alien form for an extended period of time. He uses it to infiltrate the Incursean army as Bullfrag.
- Blukic and Driba developed a microchip that can perform the same function.
- Split-Personality Takeover: Has fail-safes in place to prevent sampled DNA from overriding the personality of the user. This is a Mythology Gag with every ghost-like alien Ben has going back to Ghostfreak who planned this intentionally. Often bypassed in normal function by natural biological changes such as reproductive cycles as seen with Big Chill, or the instincts of certain alien species like Rath's aggression.
- Suddenly Voiced: From Alien Force onward.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: The Ultimatrix which is basically a less perfect Omnitrix that lets the user transform into Ultimate Forms.
- Superpower Lottery: Whenever Ben gains a new alien he is basically playing the lottery on what sort of power he gets. Sometimes the power is an obvious winner (Atomix), sometimes it takes a bit of time to figure out how to use the form (for example Cannonbolt), and on occasion the species is a Joke Character. Word of God even established during the Omniverse and later eras that Ben had unlocked a number of aliens with lower quality abilities that he mostly doesn't use and we never see until some art for them was made up in such aliens include names like Bungee Sponge, Hippopotamass, Skidmarx, Mealymouth and Crabtastic.
- Story-Breaker Power: The Master Control is this. The one who wields the Omnitrix is considered the most powerful being in the universe, with the ability to transform into any alien. With the Master Control, Ben has access to all aliens stored, as in every alien species in the Milky Way Galaxy (plus 3 from the Anur System, and 5 from the Andromeda Galaxy). In addition to that, Ben can remain in alien form indefinitely, transform without touching the dial, and not have to deal with being randomly selected an alien that wasn't chosen, yet those are only some of the benefits and powers. The power and efficiency that comes with having Master Control would've been devastating during the runs of all series in the original franchisethat is if Ben knows how to activate it. All versions of Ben 10, have access to Master Control due to taking time to learn it.
- Super Wrist-Gadget: It looks like a techno wristwatch.
- Took a Level in Badass/Super Mode: The Ultimatrix's Ultimate Alien forms as a result of simulating what would happen if that alien went through a million years of civil war and thus evolving to be more combat-oriented.
- Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Malware tried to absorb the Omnitrix during the time Ben was eleven. When he destroyed Feedback, Ben, out of rage, let him try to absorb it and it caused him to explode. He survived, but that's still impressive.
- Transformation Trinket: Into dozens of aliens.
- Troll: If Ben wants Four Arms, he'll get Grey Matter. If he wants Grey Matter, he'll get Ghostfreak. If he wants Ghost Freak, he'll get Cannonbolt. While sometimes the Omnitrix knows better than Ben, other times the randomness can only be attributed to it being a jerk (or, according to Azmuth, Ben being too rough with the device). The most notable example is the occasion when it turned Ben into Rath, the only feline alien Ben had, in front of a villainess who could mind-control felines.
Ben: Sometimes I think this thing hates me.]
- Ultimate Life Form: The transformations Ben becomes are, per several Word of God statements, the prime versions of their species that, with the Ultimatrix, be further evolved into combat-focus Ultimate Forms.
- Universal Translator: Has one built-in.
- Younger Than They Look: Ben's transformations are the same age as him or at least an equivalent for that species.
Original Series Aliens
Arctiguana/Ultimate Arctiguana (OS)
Voiced by Tom Kane (Original Series), Eric Bauza (Omniverse)
Arctiguana's DNA was sampled from a Polar Manzardills, an alien species that is somewhere between a lizard and a fish. They have the ability to breathe frozen vapor which can be used as a weapon, provided they aren't out of breath.
Ben 23's version is named Freezelizard.
- Ascended Extra: He was only seen as one of Ben 10,'s aliens in future episodes of the Original Series while the alternate version of Ben 10, had also used him Ultimate Alien. Present Ben uses him for the first time in Omniverse.
- Backpack Cannon: Ultimate Arctiguana has two ice cannons on his back.
- Breakout Character: Part of the reason he appears more may be the fact that he's a fan-favorite alien.
- Breath Weapon: Ice breath to be accurate.
- Evolution Power-Up: Though the full extent of Ultimate Arctiguana's powers is unknown, his evolved state gains two large cannons that are attached to his back, and he can shoot fully formed icebergs instead of just freeze rays.
- Facial Markings: Black stripes across his face.
- An Ice Person: His sole power is ice breath.
- Just a Stupid Accent: Omniverse has him speak in a Jamaican accent.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: Big Chill has the same power along with flight and intangibility. This is possibly subverted, however, as it has been implied that Arctiguana is physically stronger, and has a faster freeze ray as well.
- Shout-Out: The cannons on his Ultimate form give him a resemblance to Blastoise.
- Super Not-Drowning Skills: Arctiguana can breathe underwater.
Blitzwolfer (Benwolf) (OS)
Voiced by Tara Strong (Original Series), Kevin Michael Richardson (Omniverse)
Blitzwolfer's DNA was sampled from a Loboan, a werewolf-like species from the moon Luna Lobo which orbits the planet Anur Transyl. A wooded moon, Luna Lobo's landscape is prowled with a race of cunning wolf-beasts with a thirst for blood. While these feral creatures mostly hunt in packs, it is a lone wolf beast that often proves to be the most savage of all. Loboans have natural strength, speed, agility, and heightened senses that make them the top predator on Luna Lobo. They also have the ability to split their mouth into four parts and perform a sonic howl.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite all the red flags in his debut episode (getting "infected" by an evil werewolf causing Ben to mutate into a werewolf himself), Ben's personality doesn't change at all in this form.
- Lightning Bruiser: He possesses a decent amount of superhuman strength, plus a quite impressive natural speed.
- Line-of-Sight Name: When Kai refers to the alien as Benwolf in Omniverse, Ben immediately claims to have changed the name, but can't think of a replacement name until he spots Wolf Blitzer on TV.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: His signature ability consist in open his mouth in four mandibles to generate a powerful Sonic Scream.
- Metamorphosis: Due to (according to Man of Action) the Omnitrix being stuck between "transforming" and "sampling DNA" functions when the DNA was sampled, Ben's first transformation into this form was gradual, with his skin turning blue, fur growing on him and the instinct partially taking over him. invoked
- Noble Wolf: When Mr. "It's Hero Time" becomes a wolf, then yes.
- One-Shot Character: He only appeared in one episode of the original series and didn't appear again until Omniverse. Dialogue from his return episode strongly implies that Ben never used him in the interim.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: They're aliens from Luna Lobo, a moon orbiting around Anur Transyl. They obviously don't have a human form and don't infect people by biting (though it was initially believed by the characters they did in Benwolf-see Metamorphosis above). And they have the ability to generate a powerful Sonic Howl.
- Retcon: Originally, it was stated that all Loboan cubs had green eyes like him and that all adult Loboans had red and pale orange eyes. Come Omniverse, Blitzwolfer still has green eyes just like the rest of Ben's transformations, and other adult Loboans have varying eye colors.
- Space Jews: In Omniverse, he is renamed after Jewish journalist and news anchor Wolf Blitzer and his accent sounds vaguely Jewish as well.
- Suddenly Voiced: Just like for Snare-oh, the alien his DNA was sampled from couldn't talk except through growls. Ben, on the other hand, can vocally express himself just fine.
Voiced by Tara Strong (Original Series, Reboot), Eric Bauza (Omniverse)
Buzzshock was sampled from a Nosedeenian, also known as Megawhatts, from the Nosedeen Quasar.
- Ascended Extra: Like Arctiguana, he originally only appeared in Ben 10,.
- Me's a Crowd: Can duplicate if he has enough energy, or if he's cut in half.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: When Ben 10, used him in the original series, he seemed like a perfectly viable alien with a unique power. When Ben actually unlocks him in Omniverse, he has already unlocked several electric aliens who can do what Buzzshock does and are either better at it or more versatile Note Frankenstrike and Brainstorm can create electromagnetic fields. Brainstorm can also create electrical constructs. AmpFibian is described as a "master of the electromagnetic spectrum", displays many of the same powers as Buzzshock while also having intangibility. Feedback can generate more powerful electrical blasts as well as having Energy Absorption beyond electricity . The only technique Buzzshock possesses that is unique to him among the electric-based aliens is Self-Duplication but Ben has two other aliens who can use it without needing to absorb electricity or being cut in half.
- Shock and Awe: Holds the distinction of being the first electrokinetic alien introduced, though not the first one Ben gained the ability to turn into.
- Suddenly Voiced: Has understandable speech, unlike the other Nosedeenians.
- The Trickster: Not Buzzshock himself, but Megawhatts as a species are well-known for constantly wreaking havoc due to their love of pranks and mischievous nature.
Cannonbolt/Ultimate Cannonbolt (OS, UA, RE)
Voiced by Fred Tatasciore (Original Series), Dee Bradley Baker (Alien Force, Ultimate Alien), David Kaye (Omniverse), Travis Willingham (Reboot)
Cannonbolt's DNA was sampled from an Arburian Pelarota, a shelled species widely believed to be extinct after the destruction of their homeworld by a being called the Great One.
Ben 23's version is named Rollaway.
- All There in the Manual: Ultimate Cannonbolt can supposedly fire his spikes, but this is never shown.
- Back for the Finale: He made his Alien Force debut in "War of the Worlds".
- Breakout Character: Cannonbolt replaced Ghostfreak as a 'original 10' alien in the last two seasons of the original series and went from an additional alien to one of three that has appeared in every iteration of the franchise. In several media set during the Alien Force era he would be used as a substitute for Alien X in a lineup (such as in Vilgax Attacks) and is a starting alien in the reboot.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: Though it's a forward thrust thing, not just in place like a top.
- Evolution Power-Up: Downplayed compared to most of Ben's ultimate aliens. Cannonbolt's current evolutionary stage already excels in combat efficiency so much that his perfect evolved form becomes only slightly more durable and bouncier in addition to just adding spikes.
- Grievous Harm with a Body: Namely, his own.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: His sole power is to curl up into a ball and throw himself at the enemy in Rolling Attacks. Sounds pretty lame, right? Well, not so much when your body possesses a shell that can resist atmospheric re-entry. He actually is one of Ben's most used aliens.
- Hyper-Destructive Bouncing Ball: In the original series, he bounced around wildly like a pinball. This is averted in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, where Cannonbolt is slower and in Omniverse, where he has more control.
- Last of His Kind: Possibly, seeing how his planet was destroyed by the Great One.
- Promotion to Opening Titles: In the original series, replacing Ghostfreak.
- Rolling Attack: His main thing is rolling around.
- Unbreakable Weapons: His shell has been shown, on at least one occasion, to withstand being stabbed by Petrosapien crystal. He survived falling back to the Earth from re-entry!
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Ben had this opinion when he first got him and that opinion became subverted by the end of the episode and onwards.
Diamondhead (OS, RE)
Voiced by Jim Ward (Original Series), Daran Norris (Race Against Time), Dee Bradley Baker (Alien Force, Ultimate Alien), Eric Bauza (Omniverse), Roger Craig Smith (Reboot)
Diamondhead's DNA was sampled from a Petrosapien, a race of green aliens comprised entirely of a diamond-like organic structure from planet Petropia. Petropia is a craggy, geode-like planet where silicon-based beings evolved to build a complex society of separate underground kingdoms. While there are several different gem-based races, from ruby to emerald to sapphire, each with its own distinct abilities and culture, most Petrosapiens now coexist peacefully. The planet is well-known for having been destroyed by Vilgax and later rebuilt by their guardian Sugilite.
Petrosapiens are crystalline beings whose bodies are formed entirely out of opaque gemstones and whose rock-hard physiologies make them all virtually invulnerable to physical attack. While jewel-like in appearance, Petrosapiens are no pretty boys. Their diamond-hard bodies make these fearsome warriors incredibly tough. Shards of the razor-sharp crystals jut out at numerous odd angles from their heads and bodies, discouraging physical contact, and also act as powerful weapons that can turn a car into confetti in a matter of seconds. Combined with their increased strength, Petrosapiens' shredding appendages can be especially devastating. Living prisms, Petrosapiens can refract light and beam-based weaponry, channeling them through their bodies and projecting them back at their source. Petrosapiens are particularly vulnerable to sonic vibrations. While a stereo blast might cause them to splinter, certain ultra-high-pitched sound waves can cause them to shatter - and no glue in this galaxy or the next can put a Petrosapien back together again.
- Badass Baritone: Regardless of voice actor, Diamondhead always has an awesomely deep voice.
- The Big Guy: Alongside Four Arms as one of Bens main physical aliens.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Not naturally, but he can shape his hands into ones.
- Gemstone Assault: This is his signature ability.
- Glass Cannon: Literally, though in a technical point of view, it's averted; Diamondhead actually is one of Ben's most durable aliens, as his crystal skin is extremely durable and he can regenerate his limbs.
- Energy Absorption: In Alien Force, he inherited Chromastone's ability to absorb and channel energy attacks.
- Healing Factor: His ability to shape himself gives him a very limited self-healing ability.
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: He has one in Omniverse. It's not as prominent as Alien X's, but it's still present.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: He is made of diamond-hard crystal, and even if you succeed in damaging him, he can regenerate. The only thing that has been shown to damage him permanently is sonic attacks.
- Rock Monster: Diamondhead's species is a race of aliens made of thick, organic green crystal material. As Diamonhead, Ben can manipulate the atomic structure of his physiology at will, allowing him to form his limbs into diamond weapons such as blades and bludgeons, fire crystal shards from his body and create constructs out of crystals.
- Shapeshifter Weapon: He has entire control over his physiology, allowing him to shapeshift his arms into blades, project crystal shards, and many other uses.
- Stealth Pun: Diamondhead is durable, but he can crack under enough pressure. He's a Glass Cannon!
- Story-Breaker Power: Upon his return in Alien Force he ended up being the alien who dispatched Vilgax after Vilgax stomped every other alien Ben threw at him including Humungousaur.
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To Chromastone in the season three premiere of Alien Force, even gaining his powers as well.
- Took a Level in Badass: While he was already one of Ben's favorites in the original series when he returned in Alien Force, he gained telekinetic control over his crystals and the ability to make them explode. He ended up trouncing Vilgax despite the fact that he had previously been unable to scratch him. He does not retain these abilities in Omniverse.
Voiced by Rob Paulsen
Ditto's DNA was sampled from a Splixson, a race of small humanoids able to create unlimited duplicates of themselves. The clones are all linked telepathically meaning they share thoughts and feelings, including pain.
- Awesome, but Impractical: In spite of the fact he can outnumber his enemies, the clones all share the same pain, getting separated long distances results in a much longer Omnitrix time-outs and they don't have much offensive power otherwise. Omniverse removes the pain restriction, but they're still fairly weak.
- Badass Adorable: He's an adorable alien that's around the height of a kid who likes praying pranks. However, he managed to destroy an army of mutant bugs in his debut episode.
- Crippling Overspecialization: He has the potential to create unlimited clones, and that's it. Other than that, he has subpar strength, speed, and power, and is considered one of Ben's physically weakest aliens.
- Doppelgänger Attack: He's only effective in combat when he takes advantage of his ability to surround his opponents.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: In-universe example as Ben mentions in Omniverse that according to websites, this alien form is a fan-favorite amongst girls, who consider him cute.
- Expy: Of the Warner Brothers.
- Flanderization: The Expy side was fairly subtle in the Original Series; in Omniverse, he is redesigned with more animal-like features and acts much more like them, down to having a chase scene based on their gags.
- Lethal Joke Character: While physically one of Ben's weakest aliens, he can be effective when used creatively.
- Me's a Crowd: His power.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: Echo Echo (an alien form introduced in Alien Force) possesses the same power as Ditto without the Weaksauce Weakness and adds a sonic scream to it, making him much more useful than Ditto.
- Retcon: In the Original Series, his duplication power had a very specific way of working; he split himself in half to duplicate, each clone was independent, they all felt each other's pain, and the death of even one of them would cause all the others to die. They wouldn't transform back into Ben until all of them were close enough to fuse back together, and would be pulled toward each other when they get close enough. In Omniverse, his duplication power works similarly to that of Echo Echo with his clones appearing in a flash of green light, being able to vanish, and apparently all vanishing automatically when the original turns back to normal. His weakness was now that "if the original dies they all die".
- Tunnel King: In Omniverse; doubles as New Powers as the Plot Demands.
- Weak, but Skilled: Compared to other aliens, Ditto is rather weak and lacks any strong power, but this can be balanced by using his ability to be in various places at the same time if you have a good sense of tactics.
- Weaksauce Weakness: The clones all feel each others' pain. If even a single one of them dies, they all die. This was retconned in Omniverse as "if the original dies, they all die".
Eye Guy (OS)
Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker (Original Series), Paul Eiding (Omniverse)
Eye Guy's DNA was sampled from an Opticoid, a reptilian race with 17 eyes across their body. Though none are on their face.
- An Ice Person: He can fire ice lasers from some of his eyes.
- Butt-Monkey: Omniverse frequently puts him in places where his multiple eyes do more harm than good (such as getting drenched in an eye irritant alien's saliva).
- Chest Blaster: His strongest beam comes from a giant eye in his torso. He usually has to close the others to fire it.
- Combo Platter Powers: Eye Guy can fly, shoot lasers, shoot elemental lasers, see all around him, and otherwise do a lot more than you might expect a multi-eyed alien to do at a glance.
- Creepy Good: Half-bat, half-reptile, and eyes all over its body. He actually looks so much creepy that he was almost rejected by production because of it.
- Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared for the first time in an alternate scene of Secret of the Omnitrix's opening scene but chronologically appeared first in "Ben 10 vs. The Negative 10, Part 2".
- Energy Weapon: Most of his eyes shoot simple energy blasts.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Amusingly, he's the only alien for which Ben and Ben 23 share the same name, which leads to Ben admitting that the name is lame.
- Extra Eyes: Has eyes everywhere, except where they should be.
- Eyeless Face: His face is the only place on his body without eyes.
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: He has eyes on his chest, on his limbs, on his torso
- Eye Beams: Every eye can fire a laser beam. Some eyes have a different type of laser.
- Playing with Fire: One of his eyes can shoot beams of fire.
- Pungeon Master: In Omniverse, he has a tendency to make puns involving sight and the word "eye".
Freezeghost (Ben 23): Cool. Get it?
Eye Guy (Ben): Dude, watch the puns! Pretty soon, you use up all the eyeconic ones, and they just get cornea and cornea!
- Wall Crawling: He can cling to walls.
Four Arms (OS, RE)
Voiced by Richard McGonagle (Original Series), Dee Bradley Baker (Ultimate Alien), John DiMaggio (Omniverse and Reboot)
Four Arms' DNA was sampled from a Tetramand, powerful foot tall aliens with four arms and armor-plated skin from planet Khoros. Khoros is a dusty and barbaric world where might makes right and survival is a constant struggle. Due to constant conflict, the planet's culture has long devolved, turning from a confederation of thriving city-states into a scorched and boundless wasteland. Nomadic tribes ruled by bloodthirsty warlords ceaselessly roam the landscape, seeking out relics of Khoros' past glory, all in hopes of rediscovering the secrets that will give them an advantage over their enemies.
Ben 23's version is named Handy Man.
- Badass Mustache: He ditches the long hair for one of these in Omniverse to give him a carnival strongman look.
- The Big Guy: The biggest of Ben's aliens for most of the original series, and the one used primarily for tasks requiring strength.
- Destructive Savior: He's got super strength, but he's a bit clumsy from time to time.
- In a Single Bound: Not one of his main powers, but he can do it.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Most notable in the original series; whenever Ben would act incredibly impulsive during a fight, chances are he'd turn into Four Arms. Granted, an alien of this case makes that sort of strategy rather effective.
- Lightning Bruiser: While not the fastest of aliens, he's still speedy, super-strong, and has the ability to jump over skyscrapers.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Obviously.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: Not Four Arms himself, but Tetramands as a species are this.
- Punny Name: Forearms = Four Arms = 4 arms
- Red Is Heroic: Red skin and all.
- Unstoppable Rage: Ben's anger is especially prevalent in this form. His opponents who usually have him by the ropes get brutally beaten back the second he gets motivated (i.e when his family is threatened).
- Shockwave Clap: By slapping all four hands together he can generate a sonic shockwave.
- Super Strength: His main power, and various writers have said out of show that he is stronger than other super-strong aliens (though outclassed by someone like Way Big or Alien X).
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He was Ben's favorite alien and had the tendency of appearing for a significant amount of times in the original series; he appears in 27 episodes overall, the most of any Omnitrix alien. Toned down in the sequels, as Ben couldn't access him again until Ultimate Alien. Played straight again in Omniverse, he is tied with XLR8 and Feedback as the most used transformation.
- Vocal Evolution: Richard McGonagle uses a deep growling voice early on in season 1 of the original series. By season 2, he uses the higher gargling tone Four Arms is known for.
Frankenstrike (Benvicktor) (OS)
Voiced by Michael Dorn (Original Series), David Kaye (Omniverse)
Frankenstrike's DNA was sampled from a Transylian, a race of large humanoids who augment themselves with powerful technology from Anur Transyl. They have the appearance of Frankenstein's monster.
Anur Transyl used to be home to two different races, the Transylians and the Vladats. Transylians — specifically their blood — were the Vladat's main source of food. The Transylians eventually rebelled against the Vladats, and, using superior technology that they had developed in secret, they hunted all Vladats on Anur Transyl into extinction and became the dominant species on their world.
Ben 23's version is named Lightning Volt.
- Ascended Extra: He only made one appearance in the original series, but returned and is featured in more than one episode in Omniverse.
- Batman Can Breathe in Space: Frankenstrike can indeed.
- Creepy Good: He looks like a stitched-together corpse, especially in Omniverse. Having no effect on Ben's personality, Frankenstrike is just as heroic as he is.
- Cyborg: Somehow, his mechanical parts are natural, since the Omnitrix reproduces them.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Ben doesn't become any less heroic while using this guy.
- Expy: Of both Dr. Frankenstein andhis monster.
- Flesh Golem: His Omniverse design looks like his body is stitched together, with the body parts being different colors.
- Frankenstein's Monster: He is based on one.
- Genius Bruiser: It was vaguely implied in his debut (and confirmed by pop-up trivia) that Transylians possess some amount of Super Intelligence (though not as high as Grey Matter). This gets retconned in Omniverse.
- In a Single Bound: He's a surprisingly good jumper.
- Mighty Glacier: Debatably; Dr. Viktor still displayed the ability to react to and backhand XLR8, but was otherwise this.
- No Name Given: He was never named on-screen, only being given the name Benvicktor in the credits of "Be Afraid of the Dark". He, along with Benwolf (Blitzwolfer) and Benmummy (Snare-oh) have been renamed in Omniverse.
- Progressively Prettier: Inverted. His design◊ in Omniverse is much uglier than the one he had back in the original series.
- Retcon: Transylians were originally stated to be the second smartest species in the galaxy behind Galvans, and Frankenstrike was said to be one of the aliens Ben 10, used to create a second Omnitrix for Kenny. This was later retconned, with Cerebrocrustaceans instead taking this position, and Transylians not having enhanced intelligence at all. Then the first thing Frankenstrike did when he was used again implied higher intelligence so who knows
- Shock and Awe: Ben's first, and largely ignored, electrokinetic alien.
- Shout-Out: To Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
- Steampunk: Anur Transyl is like this, as is Frankenstrike himself.
- Super Reflexes: Dr. Vicktor was able to backhand a speeding XLR8 (and he wasn't even aware of Ben's presence before that).
- Super Strength: Dr. Vicktor could go toe to toe with Four Arms.
- Technopath: Frankenstrike wasn't seen doing any of this, but his genetic donor operated several machines (and even a rocket engine) by plugging them into the towers on his back.
- The Dog Bites Back: According to the species' backstory, the Transylians started out as the Vladats' slaves and power supply, resulting in them eventually rebelling and exterminating the Vladats.
Voiced by Steve Blum (Original Series, Omniverse), Jeff Bennett (Alien Force, Ultimate Alien)
Ghostfreak's DNA was sampled from an Ectonurite, a race of incorporeal ghost-like aliens from Anur Phaetos. Though many legends have long spoken of it as the center from where galactic chaos springs forth, not much is known about the shadowy world of Anur Phaetos. Some say it is more a dimensional realm than a planet. Since no voyager has ever returned to tell tales of a visit and there is scant evidence as to the true nature of its existence, Anur Phaetos remains the galaxys most dangerous mystery.
It's later revealed the Ectonurite DNA for Ghostfreak was sampled from Zs'Skayr, the Ecto-Lord of Anur Phaetos.
- Adapted Out: He is not present among Ben's original 10 aliens in the reboot, having been replaced with Cannonbolt.
- A Day in the Limelight: "Ghostfreaked Out" revolves around him breaking free from the Omnitrix.
- And I Must Scream: Unlike other species sampled for the Omnitrix, even the smallest sample of DNA contains an Ectonurite's consciousness. A copy of Zs'Skayr's consciousness was subsequently trapped inside the Omnitrix and fully aware the entire time. His fight with Zombozo showed signs of Zs'Skayr taking over.
- Badass Boast: To Zombozo in "Last Laugh":
Ben/Ghostfeak: I just figured out there's something I'm even more afraid of than you: (punches Zombozo and turns invisible) losing my family to some goofball emotional vampire. In other words (punches Zombozo by the nose and turns invisible again) you're going down, clown.
- Chained by Fashion: He has these as part of his design in ''Omniverse''◊.
- Combat Tentacles: Omniverse shows that that the tentacles under his second skin are strong enough to lift a bus full of people.
- Confusion Fu: It's hard to figure out where he going to come at you from if he makes effective use of his invisibility.
- Creepy Good/Dark Is Not Evil: Ben can get very creepy when he turns into Ghostfreak, but he remains a good guy as long as Zs'Skayr doesn't take over.
- Cyclops: he has a single eye, which can move on every part of his body.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Even after regaining the form, Ben was afraid to use it due to the fear of Zs'Skayr taking over. Now that Zs'Skayr is no longer in the Omnitrix, Ghostfreak exists independently from him, so this no longer an issue. However, the fact that the presence of Charmcaster's stone creatures forced the Omnitrix to limit Ben's selection only to Ghostfreak, and Zs'Skayr emerging after Darkstar's ritual was foiled indicates that they might still be connected somehow.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Double subverted. Despite being one of Ben's original 10 aliens, Ghostfreak was hinted in "Last Laugh" to have something darker to him. It was later revealed that he was sampled from the evil overlord Zs'Skayr and trapped inside the Omnitrix, eventually escaping and becoming one of Ben's most fearsome enemies. When Ben regains access to him, he (understandably) puts off using him for years, afraid of what had happened with him before. However, in Omniverse, he states that he still feels like himself when using him, which allows him to return Ghostfreak to his active playlist.
- The Dreaded: Both Ben and Kevin were wary of assuming this form even before they found out why.
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: Can move his eye around his body while in his second skin. Without it his eye is stuck in place because his head is a skull.
- Grand Theft Me: Heroic example. He defeats Darkstar by possessing his body. Before that, however, Zs'Skayr existed as Ghostfreak, and his personality slowly overwhelmed Ben's over time the more he used the form.
- Horrifying the Horror: Ben managed to scare the crap out of Zombozo just by using this form.
- Intangible Man: He wouldn't be called Ghostfreak if he didn't have these powers. Though there are chemicals that can neutralize this ability.
- Informed Ability: The Bandai profile mentions Ectonurites possess some amount of psychic powers. Ben was never seen using those abilities as Ghostfreak. Zs'Skayr, on the other hand Ben, inexperienced as he was at the time, likely didn't know about them. Also, Zs'Skayr was only seen using those abilities in his true form, which Ben never used.
- Mook Horror Show: Famous for delivering one of the greatest examples of this trope in the entire franchise to Zombozo.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: They are a species of aliens from a mysterious sector called Anur Phaetos, are connected through a Hive Mind that can manifest through even the slightest sample of their DNA, and are Weakened by the Light. They can, however, wear a second skin to protect them from it, at the cost of weakening most of their powers. Said skin gives them their ghost-like appearance, but behind it, they look like creatures with black-and-white tentacles writhing everywhere, an upside-down cyclopean skull, and large claws.
Omniverse dips closer to the conventional ghost; Ben boasts that, in this form, he is not technically alive and thus immune to Darkstar's Life Drain abilities. Word of God has stated that Ectonurites are alive; however, their concept of "life" is very different from other sapient life forms.
- Story-Breaker Power: In a conflict against a single, powerful opponent, Ghostfreak can immediately end things by just turning invisible, flying up to them, and possessing them.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Zs'Skayr started out as this before his Enemy Without. Ben now has complete control over Ghostfreak, as Zs'skayr is no longer inside the Omnitrix, and when he uses the form in "Mystery, Incorporeal" he says that he still feels like himself.
- Took a Level in Badass: In the original series, Ghostfreak wasn't much good in a fight via the fact that he was too frail to do any serious damage and all Ben could do with him was turn invisible/intangible or try to scare people. In Omniverse, he can share his invisibility with others in addition to being immune to Life Drain and aware of how to use his possession abilities and his tentacles can launch out and are strong enough to hold a bus.
- Vocal Evolution: Steve Blum's performance in Omniverse is much less raspy and villainous-sounding. It fits because Ben is now in complete control of the form.
- Weakened by the Light: Though Ghostfreak wears a second skin that protects him from such a weakness. However, he is still vulnerable to fire.
Grey Matter/Ultimate Grey Matter (OS, RE)
Voiced by Richard Steven Horvitz (Original Series), Carlos Alazraqui (Race Against Time), Eric Bauza (Omniverse), Todd Haberkorn (Reboot)
Grey Matter's DNA was sampled from a Galvan, a species consisting of small, incredibly intelligent frog-like beings from Galvan Prime. Despite its diminutive scale, Galvan Prime is one of the most scientifically advanced worlds in the galaxy. Miniature skyscrapers and ultra-fast causeways litter the landscape, leaving little room for nature. First kept as pets and then employed by other species as industrial technicians, spies, and saboteurs, Galvans were smart enough to keep the best secrets for themselves, eventually amassing enough knowledge to build a powerful empire of their own. In a chaotic world of intrigue and innovation, the coldly technocratic inhabitants of Galvan Prime work tirelessly and consume massive resources to keep an ever-tightening grip over their former masters.
Azmuth, the creator of the Omnitrix, is later revealed to be himself a Galvan.
Ben 23's version is named Brainfrog.
- Adaptational Badass: In the reboot. He isn't any stronger physically, but he has Awesomeness by Analysis like Brainstorm.
- A Day in the Limelight: The Original Series episode "A Small Problem" features Ben stuck as Grey Matter for almost the entire episode, with no other Omnitrix aliens making an appearance.
- Author Appeal: He is Derrick J. Wyatt's favorite alien. Not only is brought back in Omniverse as a result, but his species has a much bigger role than in any previous entry of the franchise.
- Cephalothorax: Ultimate Grey Matter is a M.O.D.O.K.Expy, so naturally this is in play.
- Eye Beams: Ultimate Grey Matter can fire beams from his third eye which have the effect of negating Ben's transformations.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Even at 10 years old, Grey Matter possesses enough intelligence to work advanced machines and build highly advanced weapons.
- Heart Is an Awesome Power: Grey Matter's size makes him a fitting alien to escape bigger predators or hide, and his high intellect doesn't seem useless any more when you can use him to build a solar gun out of scraps. An even more extreme example in Ken 10, where Ken uses him to unlock the Master Code of his Omnitrix.
- Improbably High I.Q.: "The Vengers" shows Brainstorm's IQ to be 10^30. If Galvans are truly smarter than Cerebrocrustaceans, then this trope must be in effect.
- Incredible Shrinking Man: Ben goes from whatever size he normally is, to about 6 inches tall. invoked
- Informed Ability: While the show's lore suggests that Galvans are smarter than Cerebrocrustaceans, in context the matter is up for debate. Brainstorm has generally done more with his Super Intelligence than Grey Matter has, running physics simulations in his head and accurately predicting every move his opponents will make, for example, while Grey Matter's Super Intelligence has so far mostly applied to technology, though he has had a few Awesomeness by Analysis moments scattered here and there, such as defeating Tyrannopede by copying Khyber's Hephaestan neural grip technique.
- Lethal Joke Character: Compared to most of Ben's other aliens, his powers seem pretty laughable and useless in a fight, but if well-used, he can become extremely useful and deadly. Not to mention his species is considered the closest thing the Ben 10 Universe has to a dominant species in the Galaxy.
- Mini-Mecha: His Omni-Enhanced form in the reboot puts him in one, adding (as he puts it) some brawns to his brains.
- My Brain Is Big: Ultimate Grey Matter, while being roughly the same size as the normal form, is mostly brain.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: While Grey Matter's high intelligence and small size were quite useful in the original series, Alien Force introduced Brainstorm, who also possesses high intelligence (though suggested by some of the characters to be less so than Grey Matter) and combines it with Shock and Awe and Mind over Matter. Then, Alien Swarm gave us Nanomech, who is even smaller than Grey Matter, can fly and shoot electrical blasts.
- Shorter Means Smarter: The smallest alien until the introduction of Nanomech, and the smartest alien Ben has.
- Shout-Out: Ultimate Grey Matter's form looks quite similar to M.O.D.O.K.
- The Smart Guy: His main (and only) power is intelligence. As he has little to no physical ability (save for sharp teeth) he relies on his intellect to outsmart his enemies.
- Super Intelligence: Grey Matter is implied at a few points to be even smarter than Brainstorm, smart enough to operate complex technology on instinct, and build high-tech weapons from scraps.
- Wall Crawl: The mucus his skin secretes allows him to adhere to surfaces to climb them.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: When Ben was ten years old, Grey Matter was his least favorite alien because of the low physical ability.
Heatblast (OS, RE)
Voiced by Steve Blum (Original Series), David Franklin (Race Against Time), Dee Bradley Baker (Ultimate Alien), David Kaye (Omniverse), Daryl Sabara (Reboot)
Heatblast's DNA was sampled from a Pyronite, a race of magma-based aliens from Pyros. Of all the homeworlds in the galaxy, Pyros is unique in that it is actually a fully functioning sun. Pyros is a wide-open landscape of endless natural wonders: Infernal plumes erupt miles into the atmosphere, and raging rivers of molten lava cut massive swaths across the fire-filled tundra. Magma based, all of its inhabitants are composed of flame-like energy. Drawing strength and nourishment from an almost limitless power source, this world's inhabitants are in need of little else.
Ben 23's version is named Charcoal Man.
- An Ice Person: In the episode, Side Effects, Heatblast's powers are inverted to instead generate ice as a result of Ben's cold altering his powers. Tellingly, while all the other aliens' powers are roadblocked, Heatblast is the only one whose inverted powers end up being a benefit for one occasion.
- The Cameo: Heatblast was unlocked offscreen after season 2 of Alien Force, according to multiple Word of God entries via scanning Alan Albright. The hologram of Heatblast appeared a few times in the third season but Ben is never seen transforming into him during this time onscreen.
- Convection Schmonvection: This alien is from, and is in essence, a walking talking sun. Nobody is harmed or complains about the heat from being in close proximity to him. He can even pick things up without burning them, and literally going supernova in one episode does nothing but evaporate the Fountain of Youth. This most likely doubles as Hollywood Fire. The true severity of Heatblasts powers might not be all that appropriate to show in a family-friendly franchise, so it had to be toned down a bit.
- Demoted to Extra: Heatblast was one of Ben's most used aliens in the first season but became much less frequently used in subsequent seasons note He appears in 8 episodes in the first season, then 2 in the second, 4 in the third, and 3 in the fourth . He got a few appearances in later seasons of Ultimate Alien after only cameoing in Alien Force as a hologram but notably was absent from the middle part of Omniverse after getting roles in the early and later parts of the show.
- Elemental Absorption: He can absorb fire.
- Elemental Powers: Pyrokinesis.
- Elemental Punch: As shown in his fight with Victor, he can wreath his hands in fire to increase the intensity of his punches.
- Flying Firepower: Initially not, but in later episodes, Ben learned to use his fire abilities to propel himself in the air and fly.
- Up to Eleven in the reboot, where his Omni-Enhanced form has a jet pack.
- Human Aliens: According to Word of God, Pyronites have two forms; the molten rock form, and a form that looks very similar to humans. They can switch between the two at will. invoked
- Jack-of-All-Stats: He can hit, possesses acceptable durability, flies with limited capabilities, and can blast fire.
- Living Lava: He is literally this.
- One-Man Army: Downplayed. In the original series episode "Secrets", he was easily able to one-shot an entire group of Vilgax's drones. In Ultimate Alien he was able to fight on par and defeat another One-Man Army in the form of Victor.
- Playing with Fire: He can produce fire, absorb it and wreathe parts of his body in it.
- The Power of the Sun: What with Pyronites being born on stars and all.
- Shout-Out: When his head goes out, his face looks like Iron Man.
- Super Speed: In the reboot, his Omni-Enhanced form can fly faster than XLR8 can run, as shown in "High Stress Express".
- Super Toughness: While not Ben's most durable alien, he was still able to get thrown through three buildings while on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle from Vilgax and was no worse for wear.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Subverted. Just pouring or spraying water on him isn't gonna kill him. One episode of the original series even has him swimming in a pool with no detriment, and his flames spark right up again the moment he gets out. Omniverse even has him able to produce enough heat underwater to melt metal.
Voiced by Fred Tatasciore (Original Series), Dee Bradley Baker (Ultimate Alien), Eric Bauza (Omniverse)
Ripjaws' DNA was sampled from a Piscciss Volann, a race of aquatic fish aliens from Pisciss. The water world of Piscciss is one of extreme danger. Thousands of exotic species live in a vast anarchic ocean of eat or be eaten. While most Pisccians live in schools because of the safety in numbers, there is still little feeling among these cold-blooded kinfolk. A world of strong currents and highly stratified environments, the deeper one dives on Piscciss, the darker and more dangerous it becomes.
While the Volanns are not the biggest fish in the Pisccian sea, they are definitely the most hazardous. A monstrous hybrid of alligator, eel, and leech, Volanns are incredible swimmers who are amazingly fast and agile in the water. A Volanns' huge mouth filled with rows of razor-sharp teeth can chomp through almost anything. Their lower jaw unhinges, enabling them to grip large objects with the strength on an industrial-sized vise. Sinewy and covered in slimy scales, Volanns use their claw-tipped fins to fight in a unique "zero gravity" style that makes them masters of aquatic combat. They can dive deep to the oceans floor, easily withstanding the crushing pressure while continuing to breathe through their gills. For all their skill in the water, Piscciss Volanns are unable to walk and are basically useless above the waves. Volanns must keep their gills wet or they'll dehydrate rapidly, which can actually result in their death on dry land. As members of their species grow older, however, their ability to spend time on dry land increases, making them more amphibious in adulthood.
Ben 23's version is named Fish Fingers.
- Abled in the Adaptation: The reboot Rijpaws used by Gwen 10 has the same respirator tech the reoccurring Piscciss Volann prisoner wears, allowing Ripjaws in the reboot to be active outside of water a lot more stably than the classic Ripjaws was able to be used.
- Adapted Out: He is not present among Ben's original ten aliens in the reboot, having been replaced by Overflow. He is used by Gwen 10 in the finale episode of the reboot however.
- Alluring Anglerfish: He's got the angler, but we've never seen it glow.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He does not appear at all in the third season of the original series.
- His icon in the watch does appear in a few episodes and Ben explicitly attempts to transform into him twice; neither times is he successful, however.
- Creepy Good: Seriously, just look at his face.
- Crippling Overspecialization: He excels in mobility, territorial control, and power underwater, but this is undercut by the fact he needs water to breathe, and is thus mostly useless on dry land. Downplayed in the sequels, where he can spend more time above water, but his abilities are still too situational for him to get more use.
- Joke Character/Lightning Bruiser: He's the former on dry land, but in water, he becomes the latter.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: He has a lot of teeth in his mouth in the original series. In Ultimate Alien, he was given more traditional fish lips. The teeth returned in Omniverse.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: He has a unique mermaid-like tail when he's underwater.
- Out of Focus: Appears the least out of the original 10 aliens, with the exception of Ghostfreak. Unlike Ghostfreak, whose lack of use was a specific plot point, Ripjaws just doesn't get used much.
- Retcon: Early supplementary material stated that Piscciss Volanns had no legs and that Ripjaws' were created via the Omnitrix modifying his form. Secret of the Omnitrix debunked this by showing a criminal Volanns in Incarcecon standing on legs just like Ripjaws, with all future Volanns featured in the franchise able to change from legs to tails like Ripjaws. His "tail" from then on became a complex carapace that wraps around his legs in water and shrinks into a pseudo-loincloth when on land.
- Running Gag: A pair of minor ones:
- If he's up against a water-based threat (especially in season 3), expect a few aliens that don't do well with water before Ripjaws shows up, if at all.
- Conversely, expect about 50% or more of the transformations into Ripjaws to be accompanied by a complaint of the Omnitrix messing with Ben.
- Super Not-Drowning Skills: He's aquatic.
- This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Used almost specifically for aquatic environments, and is useless anywhere else.
- One of the last times he was seen in the original series was when Ben used him in a beach episode. Surfing.
- Although occasionally this could be subverted, as shown in Ripjaws' last appearance in the Original Series, where he proceeded to start tearing chunks out of a bad guy's car, despite being in the desert and the car MOVING.
- Weaksauce Weakness: He can't survive without water for long. As a result, he is one of Ben's least used aliens. This is improved upon in the sequel series but doesn't see him used much more at that point due to there being Loads and Loads of Characters, many of which can survive in and out of water.
Snare-oh (Benmummy) (OS)
Voiced by Richard Green (Original Series), Kevin Michael Richardson (Omniverse)
Snare-oh's DNA was sampled from a Thep Khufan, an alien species that is comprised entirely of bandage-like strips from Anur Khufos. Anur Khufos is a planet rich in Corrodium, a substance known for being extremely radio-active and causing horrible mutations. As such, Thep Khufan had to adapt to this to survive.
- Ascended Extra: He only made two brief appearances in the original series. He's used more often in Omniverse.
- Combat Tentacles: The bandages that make up his body actually are thin, but very strong tentacles he has complete control over. They can be used to effortlessly lift Diamondhead.
- Confusion Fu: Needless to say he has a very unorthodox attack pattern.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Though the alien who provided the sample sure was.
- Mummy: His look is based on one, though otherwise, it follows almost none of the clichés usually associated with the trope.
- Mummy Wrap: His primary power; all these bandages actually are tentacles he can use to grab anything and anyone.
- Forgot About His Powers: In "The Frogs of War, Part One", Ben apparently hadn't used this form for so long that he'd forgotten what it could do.
- Healing Factor: Can easily be torn apart and even shredded to bits, and reform nearly instantly.
- How Do I Shot Web?: Initially, Ben doesn't really know how to use Snare-Oh's powers, and spends a good deal of a fight with the Yenaldooshi (the DNA sample of Blitzwolfer) getting his ass beaten.
- Losing Your Head: "Secret of Dos Santos" reveals that his faceplate can be detached from his bandages with no ill effect.
- No Name Given: Like Frankenstrike, he was never named on-screen, only being given the name Benmummy in the credits of The Return. When he returns in Omniverse, his name is still not stated on-screen, but he is listed as Snare-oh in the credits of "The Frogs of War: Part 1".
- No-Sell: Thep Khufan are completely immune to the horrible mutations corrodium radiations usually cause, allowing them to carry the substance inside their body with no ill side effects. Ben shows this ability as well while in alien form, but it's unclear if it's his aliens' ability or just thanks to the fact he is transforming through the Omnitrix.
- One-Shot Character: He only appeared in one episode of the original series, although he did make a brief appearance as a Continuity Nod in a later episode. When he returns in Omniverse, his name is still not stated, but the credits for "The Frogs of War: Part 1" list him as Snare-oh.
- Suddenly Voiced: Ben can speak as Snare-oh, despite the fact that the alien he got the DNA sample from is The Speechless.
- Zombie Gait: Averted — he's actually one of the more nimble aliens Ben can use.
Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker (Original Series)
Spitter's DNA was sampled from a Spheroid from planet Scalpasc.
- Ascended Extra: Subverted. Just like Arctiguana and Buzzshock, he appeared as one of Ben 10,'s aliens. Unlike them, however, he has never made an appearance since the original series aside from appearing in the intro for Ultimate Alien. He's thus one of only four aliens to not appear in Omniverse and like Fasttrack, his species aren't even given representatives.
- The Cameo: He tends to make very brief appearances.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He was last used in "Ken 10", and present-day Ben was never seen using him.
- Inflating Body Gag: He inflates whenever he spits.
- Super Spit: He can spit a powerful blast of slime.
Stinkfly (OS, RE)
Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker (Original Series, Ultimate Alien, Omniverse), Greg Cipes (Reboot)
Stinkfly's DNA was sampled from a Lepidopterran, a race of winged insect-like aliens from planet Lepidopterra. With its advanced and highly specialized ecosystem, Lepidopterra is a generally peaceful swamp planet whose numerous species live among a fantastic variety of giant plants. Residing in a complex of giant hives each ruled by its own queen, Lepidopterrans are the predominant inhabitants of their planet. Life on this planet is seasonal, and every species does its part to make sure the flora continues to produce its fruit so that all can live together in harmony as they have for countless eons.
Ben 23's version is named Big Bug.
- Beware My Stinger Tail: He has a bee/scorpion-like stinger that is sharp enough to rip through metal.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: Basically a giant alien fly.
- Breath Weapon: Shoots slime from his mouth and eyes. He can alter the properties of this goo, making them either flammable or fire retardant, for example.
- Energy Weapon: When a time-traveling year-old Ben used him in Ultimate Alien, his eyes shot lasers instead of goo.
- Eye on a Stalk: Stinkfly has four eyestalks arranged around its head, with the Omnitrix symbol in the middle resembling a single large eye; possibly an allusion to insects with patterns designed to mimic another creature.
- Fartillery: When Ben is reduced to a four-year-old, this is Stinkyfly's power.
- Flight: While he never was Ben's only flyer (Ghostfreak was one as well, and Heatblast later was revealed to be one), this is still the main use Ben had of him most of the time.
- Glass Cannon: Seriously, just throw some water on this guy's wings and he's through.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: While Stinkfly has an array of useful powers his role of main flier has long been usurped by a variety of other aliens that can fly similarly well and offer more than he does (more power, more durability, better ground-based combat, etc.). Even in Omniverse where his main competition, Jetray, was absent he appeared rather infrequently, especially for one of the original aliens.
- Super-Deformed: The adults of the species show that his features will exaggerate after maturing. His eyes, tail and the tips of his legs are all disproportionately large relative to his body, like some kind of homunculus modeling.
- Token Flyer: Was Ben's go-to choice for flight in the original series, as Ghostfreak escaped from the Omnitrix and Heatblast's flight powers were much less reliable. After Ben starts unlocking more flying aliens in the sequels (most of which tend to be better choices than Stinkfly in most situations), his uniqueness is heavily diminished.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Stinkfly's wings are very vulnerable. Even to water.
- You Don't Look Like You: He receives the most drastic redesign in the reboot series by far, not only taking on a more humanoid form, but having only two (completely different-looking) eyes, losing his tail, and even changing in color from green to blue. He doesn't even shoot slime from his mouth and eyes anymore, instead of firing it out of holes in his shoulders. This happened due to his original design being considered "too scary" and being hard to animate.
- You Need a Breath Mint: Stated several times by other characters that Stinkfly, well stinks.
Voiced by Dave Wittenberg (Original Series), Dee Bradley Baker (Alien Force, Ultimate Alien), Eric Bauza (Omniverse)
Upchuck's DNA was sampled from a Gourmand from Peptos XI, a small green species with large appetites. Gourmands have three prehensible tongues, seven acid-filled stomachs, and diamond-hard teeth, allowing them to eat almost anything. Once they feed, they are able to project deadly energy beams from their mouths.
Ben 23's version is named Vomit Man.
- Adapted Out: After being one of five aliens to appear in every classic series, Upchuck was nowhere to be seen in the reboot. No Gourmands even appeared in it, unlike Ghostfreak whose species at least appeared.
- Big Eater: Except he can't digest what is normally considered "food", leading to some rather bizarre culinary choices on his part.
- This Billboard Needs Some Salt: At one point, he drinks an animated "Mr. Smoothie". In the original series, this is quoted as Ben exclaims that Upchuck is a bottomless pit, but just can't eat regular food.
- Breath Weapon: Upchuck can fire laser beams from his mouth (or as he called them in Upchuck's debut 'exploding loogies'), though it has only been used twice (first against the Forever King in the original series then later on against Chromastone (who had escaped from the Omnitrix) in Alien Force. He prefers to fire exploding green energy pellets instead.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass:
- While being able to eat a lot is useful, Upchuck isn't that impressive compared to the other alien races. Then cut to Omniverse where it's one of the few races confirmed to lack a predator. The only other known race to share that trait are humans.
Upchuck: Top of the food chain, baby! Upchuck doesn't have a natural predator!
- Word of God has suggested that Upchuck could have defeated the Galactic Gladiator, the same species as Alien X, had Ben so chosen.
- Eating the Enemy: Upchuck can devour practically anything, which includes enemies. Of course, if they're alive he usually spits them back out.
- Extreme Omnivore: He can eat everything except, ironically, regular food. And by everything, an episode on Omniverse shows that the species as a whole has Plan Omega, which is to eat their entire planet!
- Glass Cannon: A given since he's the size of a woodchuck.
- Meaningful Name: When he showed off his powers of "exploding loogies", Ben exclaimed that he had "Upchuck power", that is to say, acidic vomit. Wanna know why Upchuck's species comes from Peptos XI? Because due to the species enacting Plan Omega—which is to devour their entire planet — they've done this so many times in the past!
- Voluntary Shape Shifting: Sort of. There are two races of Gourmands; one are called Perks, who resembles Upchuck's design from the original series, and the other are called Murks, who resemble Upchuck's design from Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. In "Tummy Trouble", Upchuck displays the ability to switch between the two races. Derrick J. Wyatt stated that he did this because he likes both designs of Upchuck, and wanted to be able to use both.
Upgrade (OS, RE)
Voiced by Tara Strong (Original Series, Omniverse (11 year old), Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United, Omniverse (16 year old))
Upgrade's DNA was sampled from a Galvanic Mechamorph, a bio-mechanical race. Galvanic Mechamorphs were an accidental creation of the Galvan resulting from an experiment on their moon Galvan B when they attempt to turn the moon into a planet-sized space station through nanotechnology and a device called the Helix. The experiment was successful but ended up creating artificial life forms, resulting in the Galvanic Mechamorphs. The Galvan eventually gave up the experiment and helped the newborn Galvanic Mecamorph to create their own civilization before recognizing them as an independent species.
Ben 23's version is named Techno-Bubble.
- A Day in the Limelight: A fairly minor one, but "Game Over" revolves around Ben and Gwen trapped in a video game, their quest being to find Upgrade's icon so they can get out, and the villain also attempting to retrieve Upgrade so he can use his form to escape.
- Ascended Extra: Zig-zagged in the reboot: in Season 1 he has basically the same role as in the original series; in Season 2 he doesn't appear until the Season finale (his absence has been noted several times, however) where it's revealed his DNA had been destroyed and forced to fuse with Ben's DNA and became the Genius Loci of the Omnitrix, taking the name "Glitch". In Season 3 he escaped the Omnitrix, joining the protagonists as the Sixth Ranger.
- Blob Monster: Of the "liquid metal" variety, much like the T
- Catchphrase: Ben likes to say "How about an Upgrade?" when using him.
- Confusion Fu/Mighty Glacier: He's the latter when he's just Upgrade and the former when everything else.
- Cyber Cyclops: Has a single eye on the end of his head. Omniverse puts the Omnitrix symbol on top of it (for the year-old Ben's Upgrade. year-old Ben's Upgrade has a slightly modified version of his design from the Original Series).
- Expy: He is seemingly based on the T liquid metal terminator.
- Expressive Mask: Well, "eye". It's the only way to tell if Ben's angry or glaring.
- Eye Beam: Though it took Ben time to figure out, Upgrade can, even when not fusing with machines, shoot a plasma beam from his single eye. This ability is absent in Omniverse, due to the Omnitrix symbol now being where his eye usually is.
- Fusion Dance:
- Ben uses him to do this with Rex in Heroes United, making his already powerful constructs even more powerful.
- In "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Ben World", Ben 23 uses his own version of Upgrade, Techno-Bubble, to do the same with mainstream Ben's Clockwork.
- Mechanical Lifeform: He is made of very advanced Galvan nanotechnology.
- Purple Is Powerful: The reboot changed his colors from black, green, and white to two different shade of purple.
- Robo Speak: Averted, Ben (And Max in the Original Series episode "Gwen 10") retains his human voice in this form, albeit with some static noises in the background. A pop-up in the original series explains that, due to Galvanic Mechamorphs being unable to "upgrade" living tissue, the merge with Ben's DNA is incomplete.
- Rubber Man: Can stretch his limbs and body at will, being a liquid metal.
- Shapeshifting: He can reshape his body, stretching out to act as a parachute while falling, or projecting spikes to attack opponents.
- The Smart Guy: Along with Grey Matter, the main appeal Upgrade seems to be brains over brawns, as he can merge with technology and use it to fight for him. Unlike Grey Matter, Upgrade can hold his own in a fight for the most part; he's just never Ben's first choice to go into physical combat with.
- Technopath: He can take over any machine by fusing with it, upgrading it (hence his name) to incredible levels in the process. But it has limits; if the machine is sentient, it can struggle with the possession and get free.
- Took a Level in Badass:
- Alien Force reveals through Ship that Mechamorphs can "eat" technology and gain the ability to turn into whatever they've eaten at will.
- In the original series his upgrades were limited by the machinery he possessed. Sure he could get things to shoot lasers that had no business shooting lasers, but if he possessed a piece of exercise equipment he was not going to be moving anywhere. In Omniverse, when he possesses Kevin's car he gives it the ability to fly and turn into a Humongous Mecha.
- Tron Lines: Galvanic Mechamorphs as a species have these, and they do well to add extra awesomeness to whatever tech they fuse with
Way Big (Secret of the Omnitrixnote Part 3, or technically OSnote Used by Ben 10, in OS, RE)/Ultimate Waybig (UA)
Voiced by Fred Tatasciore (Original Series), Dee Bradley Baker (Alien Force, Ultimate Alien), Eric Bauza (Omniverse), Roger Craig Smith (Reboot)
Way Big's DNA was sampled from a To'kustar, a race of enormous aliens created in cosmic storms. Despite their power, they are actually peaceful in nature.
Ben 23's version is named Giant-Manster.
- Achilles' Heel: Destroy All Aliens establishes that To'kustars' head fins are vulnerable to attack. Hit them there and they're paralyzed. It's unclear how long the paralysis lasts since Ben's transformation ended soon after he was hit. This weakness has yet to be shown in any other piece of Ben 10 media.
- The Big Guy: In terms of physical power, he is by far Bens strongest alien.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Though he has yet to use it offensively. They get increasingly exaggerated in his normal form in subsequent installments, but ironically, they are very much downplayed in his Ultimate form.
- Deadly Disc: The Energy Weapon variant.
- Destructive Saviour: One of the reasons Ben only uses him sparingly, as Way Big's immense size and strength risks a ton of collateral if he isn't careful. Perhaps the best demonstration of this is in Destroy All Aliens, where a fight between him and another To'kustar levels an entire city.
- Disney Death: He was aged to dust by Eon, but restored by Ben 10,
- Evolution Power-Up: Way Big's ultimate form is Ben's largest alien to date, and the most prone to collateral damage not accounting for Ben's nuclear aliens, which is why he only used it once. Though not much changes, Way Big becomes three times bigger and stronger and can shoot his To'kustar Cosmic Rays as discs. The only downside to this form is that the strength of his lasers is not proportionate to his evolution, which negates his need to become bigger if he's not using his size and strength directly.
- Expy: Of Ultraman. Right down to the + style energy beam.
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: In the original series and Omniverse, he has two extra eyes protruding from his cheeks.
- Just a Stupid Accent: In Omniverse, he speaks with an exaggerated Japanese accent. Considering what he's based on, it makes sense.
- Kamehame Hadoken: He can fire a powerful energy beam from his hands by putting them into a plus sign. In Omniverse, this changes to an X formation.
- Lightning Bruiser: His size might make him look like a Mighty Glacier, but it's later revealed he's quite fast as well.
- Negative Space Wedgie: According to the official bio, this is the species' birthplace; To'kustar are born in giant cosmic storms.
- One-Man Army: Given his size, he can literally crush entire armies at once.
- Our Giants Are Bigger: The biggest species in the galaxy.
- Shout-Out: Way Big is a fusion of various Ultras from the Ultra Series: he has the color scheme of the original Ultraman with the exaggerated head fin of Ultraman Ace backwards. Additionally, his silver skin is composed of a different material than the red parts, paying tribute to one of the original ideas for Ultramannote That being the silver parts of Ultraman would be his armor, and the red would be more vulnerable. Another is a moving mouth, but that's a very minor detail here. Way Big's Ultimate form has two horns like Ultraman Taro but the color scheme of Ultraman Tiga and Ultraman Dyna, and has access to the Ultra Slash technique, a common Showa Ultra technique. Ultimate Way Big's elbow spikes also serve as an early example, as the only Ultra with the exact same arm fins as Ultimate Way Big is Ultraman Geed Primitive. In addition, the species name, To'kustar, seems to be a reference to the name "Tokusatsu"; the genre that Ultraman belongs to.
- Spin to Deflect Stuff: In Ultimate Alien, he deflected lasers by spinning like a tornado.
- Story-Breaker Power: A lot of enemies would be defeated in a matter of seconds if Ben just used this guy (his first appearance had him easily defeat Vilgax), which might explain why he wasn't introduced until the original series' finale and brought back in the season two finale of Alien Force. After that, the writers were forced to either rely on Ben carrying the Idiot Ball or the Omnitrix's tendencies to give him the wrong alien to ensure Ben wouldn't use him too often. Way Big also can't be used inside buildings or aboard space ships because he's too big to fit inside them. Ben knows that using Way Big is overkill in normal circumstances.
- Super Speed: Displayed this ability in Ultimate Alien, where he ran in circles on the ocean so fast that he created a giant tornado of water. In Omniverse, he's still shown to have extraordinarily fast reflexes, being able to react to the Incursean's conquest ray midblast with his own cosmic beam.
- Super Strength: The Ben 10 wiki states that he has great strength even in proportion to his massive size. To put things into perspective: his debut established he can throw a normal-sized Vilgax into space. Alien Force shows he can throw a Way Big-sized Vilgax into space.
- So much so that in "Ken 10", Ben didn't use him until Kevin pushed his Berserk Button and harmed his son. Note that this was in the middle of a populated city. Ben was really pissed at Kevin at the time.
- Ultraman Copy: He is colored dominantly in red and white, capable of changing size and even has a crest in the same way as the original Ultraman. In Ultimate Alien, his Ultimate form even performs a "Rise" to further drive the point. And to boot his species is named Tokustar after the genre which Ultraman helped codify and popularize.
- World's Strongest Man: The strongest alien in the Omnitrix in terms of raw strength, though he is eclipsed by Alien-X and Atomix as the most powerful alien of all.
- The Worf Effect: As one of Ben's most powerful forms (his Ultimate form even moreso), he's been subjected to this on several occasions.
- When Ben first encountered Eon, the latter effortlessly aged Way Big to dust with a time ray.
- As Ultimate Way Big, he was easily defeated by Dagon to show how dangerous the thing was.
- A more humiliating example occurs in Omniverse, where Trombipulor managed to get the upper hand on him after eating peanuts to grow to a massive size.
- He was defeated and absorbed by Malware's One-Winged Angel form, who had absorbed so much of Galvan Prime that he even towered over Way Big himself.
- Tornado Move: He used his Super Speed to make a tornado powerful enough to throw a giant monster into the sun.
- Vocal Evolution: Omniverse gives him a Japanese accent.
- Your Size May Vary: Way Big's size is portrayed very inconsistently throughout the franchise. He's been portrayed anywhere from just a couple of stories tall to taller than a skyscraper, and different official sources have stated him to be anywhere from 60 to feet.
Wildmutt/Ultimate Wildmutt (OS, UA)
Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker
Wildmutt's DNA was sampled from a Vulpimancer, a race of canine-like creatures from Vulpin. A pitch-black planet at the galaxy's edge, Vulpin has long served as a dumping ground for hazardous materials far too dangerous for other worlds. The little that was once natural here long ago became corrupted by dangerous outside influences. Part penal colony, part toxic waste dump, whatever life that does survive here among the subzero temperatures and the poisoned forests must learn to adapt to the harshest of climates.
Notably, Vulpimancers are also a common species in the Null Void, though the ones from this place tend to have a much more monstrous appearance.
Ben 23's version is named Dog-Nabbit.
- Adapted Out: He is not present among Ben's original 10 aliens in the reboot, having been replaced with Wildvine.
- Angry Guard Dog: With ape arms.
- Beware My Stinger Tail: Ultimate Wildmutt gains a spiked tail.
- Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Or in this case a dog.
- The Cameo: Made a brief appearance in "Viktor: The Spoils", while Ben was unconscious, before making his official reappearance in "Prisoner is Missing".
- Disability Superpower: Has no eyes but can "see" with its other senses. Except when Ben gets a cold, therefore clogging up his sinuses and rendering him blind.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Meta example; a toyline first revealed the existence of Ultimate Wildmutt.
- Evolution Power-Up: Wildmutt's Ultimate form is capable of articulating words, unlike his predecessor. Upon evolving, Ultimate Wildmutt grows a tail with a spiked tip and spinal spikes. Due to his evolution as a tracker, Ultimate Wildmutt also has a noticeable bloodlust that affects his personality and makes him more ravenous.
- Expy: Of Taz the Tasmanian Devil, possibly. He's a hairy creature who's unintelligible, speaks in growls and snarls, has an attack that involves rolling into a ball.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: Wildmutt has a fairly good balance of strength, durability, speed, and agility compared to the other alien forms.
- Skunk Stripe: Ultimate Wildmutt has one down his back. It's even got a black outline where it attaches to his back, making it more obviously this trope.
- Suddenly Voiced: In Ultimate Alien, he gains the ability to speak after evolving into Ultimate Wildmutt.
- Super Senses: Can hear a wide range of sounds and track scents.
- The Unintelligible: Wildmutt can't speak, communicating only through growls and roars. Averted with Ultimate Wildmutt, whose speech is understandable.
- The Worf Effect: Was pretty prone to this in the original series—he would often get beaten up to highlight the threat posed by the Villain of the Week.
Wildvine (OS, OV, RE)
Voiced by Jim Ward (Original Series), Dee Bradley Baker (Omniverse), David Hornsby (Reboot)
Wildvine's DNA was sampled from a Florauna, a race of sentient plants from planet Flors Verdance.
- Combat Tentacles: He can uses his arms like this.
- Cyclops: He has a single large eye.
- Divergent Character Evolution: Inverted. Omniverse gives him Swampfire's healing factor and vine-spawning seeds.
- Glass Cannon: His explosive seeds and elongated arms allow him quite a potential for attack, but he is as fragile as any plant. Granted, his Healing Factor makes up for this.
- Green Thumb: He could merge with plant life in the original series and gains the ability to spawn it in Omniverse.
- Healing Factor: Wasn't revealed in the original series (Ben never got in a situation where he was hurt that bad while in this form), but Omniverse did reveal through the character of Pax that Florauna can heal from being reduced to pieces from a blast.
- Immune to Mind Control: Due to being a plant, Sublimino's hypnosis doesn't work on him.
- Informed Flaw: The Bandai profile states that Florauna will quickly wither up and weaken if deprived of water, sunlight, or exposed to the cold; Neither Wildvine nor the various actual Florauna that have shown up in the series have ever displayed such a weakness.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: Swampfire possesses similar plant-based powers, plus a remarkable Healing Factor and Playing with Fire. Possibly corrected in Omniverse, where it's revealed that Florauna possesses a healing factor as well.
- Plant Aliens: Based on a Venus flytrap.
- Rubber Man: His vines can elongate to great lengths.
- Swiss Army Weapon: His seeds can be used as bombs, knockout gas grenades, or grow more vines.
- Tunnel King: Thanks to his roots, he is capable of digging at high speeds and move underground.
- You Don't Look Like You: Like Stinkfly, he was given a more humanoid appearance in the reboot, though in his case this mostly amounted to giving him legs and getting rid of the Venus Fly Trap-like shoulder protrusions.
XLR8 (OS, RE)
Voiced by Jim Ward (Original Series), Yuri Lowenthal (Omniverse), Josh Keaton (Reboot)
XLR8's DNA was sampled from a Kineceleran, an incredibly fast-moving species from planet Kinet. A world of violent electrical storms rapidly orbiting the sun, everything on Kinet is accelerated. Days are compressed into minutes and lifetimes are spread over weeks. Due to the ever-changing nature of their environment, Kinetan society is forever in flux. Although the inhabitants remain constant in their highly charged hyperactive nature, it is said, like lightning, that no returning visitor to this world ever experiences the same place twice.
Ben 23's version is named Speedyquick.
- Breakout Character: In the original series, XLR8 was the most popular of Ben's aliens, even winning Cartoon Network's official popularity contest. In season 2 and 3, XLR8 even started to become the most used alien in the show.
- Cool Helmet: It has a retractable visor that protects his eyes while he's moving at high speeds.
- Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Looks like an armored velociraptor with wheels as his feet.
- Flanderization: He had a fairly normal personality in the original series and was perfectly capable of moving like a normal person. In Omniverse, XLR8 is downright hyperactive and seems unable to move and talk without being fast. In "Third Time's a Charm", Ben uses him to quickly look through magic books, only to quickly get bored and start reading Sumo Slammers instead.
- Fragile Speedster
Of the versions omnitrix all
American animated series and media franchise
Not to be confused with Ben X.

Ben 10 ( TV series)
Main article: Ben 10 ( TV series)

Main article: Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United
During Cartoon Network's panel at 's San Diego Comic-Con, Ben 10 and Generator Rex creators "Man of Action" announced a crossover special between the Ben 10 and Generator Rex series titled Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United. The forty-minute special aired on November 25, , as a Generator Rex episode.
A comic book based on the special titled "Hero Times Two" was released on November 30, , as the 65th issue of DC Comics' Cartoon Network: Action Pack.
Elements of the franchise
The Omnitrix, its Ultimatrix replacement, and the "finalized" version that is the New Omnitrix are the central elements of the Ben 10 story. They are all wristwatch-styled devices developed by the Galvan inventor Azmuth that transforms the user into any one of many alien beings (originally 1,,, but the number has increased by 9 via scanning additional species not originally in the database). Despite many seeing the Omnitrix as a weapon, its true purpose was to allow the beings of the universe to understand each other and to resurrect intelligent species that may go extinct.
The Omnitrix appears in the first two incarnations of the franchise (Ben 10 and Ben Alien Force), but Ben had to destroy it and use the Ultimatrix in the Ultimate Alien series. The Ultimatrix had most of the same functionality as the Omnitrix, but would allow the user to transform the alien into its Ultimate Form (how the species and its DNA would evolve in a one-million-year simulation). In the final episode of Ultimate Alien, Azmuth takes the Ultimatrix from Ben and replaces it with the New Omnitrix the original version has been a prototype.
In Ben Omniverse, the Nemetrix, a knock-off of the original Omnitrix, is introduced. Unlike the Omnitrix and its succeeding models, the Nemetrix uses the DNA of the natural predators of sentient alien races which have the sole purpose of hunting Ben. Thus, only an animal can use the Nemetrix, as users of higher intelligence are unable to use it without incurring mental damage. In Omniverse, Albedo recreates the Ultimatrix by using a Polymorphic Crystal to stabilize his transformations, making it so that he can stay in any form as long as he wants. It also allows him to transform into the Ultimate Forms of his aliens without first turning into their normal forms.
In the Reboot series, Ben's Omnitrix can augment enhancements onto his aliens. In Season 2, his aliens can become "Omni-Enhanced" with rock-like constructs and energy. However, the enhancements seems to happen at random. This energy is later revealed to be coming from a new alien species in his Omnitrix, which eventually gets its own form, "Shock Rock". In Season 4, Ben unlocks the "Omni-Kix" feature, which allows him to add armor plating onto his aliens. The Reboot series also introduces the Antitrix, which is wielded by Kevin Levin. The Antitrix allows Kevin to transform into 11 aliens, most of which are ones that Ben has used before, but significantly altered from Ben's version.
The Plumbers is an organization composed of both human and alien members, each of whom possesses a special badge. All badges bear the intergalactic peace symbol, a green hourglass shape, which is on the faceplate of the Omnitrix. Later, in Omniverse, the Plumbers' symbol becomes a red dot.
In the original series, the Earth's Plumbers were a secret government organization that protected the universe from any threat. Their main base is located inside Mount Rushmore (where the Null Void projector and Sub-Energy were stored), with additional bases located inside Fort Knox, the Space Needle, Devils Tower, the Navajo Monument, the Great Dismal Swamp, and major cities such as Roswell, New York City, New Orleans, Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago, Orlando, and Grand Rapids. Their main adversary was Vilgax. Max Tennyson was a Plumber in his youth. Most of the Plumbers on Earth have disbanded; however, a few members remain in a semi-active capacity.
The Forever Knights are a secret British society first formed during the Middle Ages that are dedicated to collecting and studying alien technology, usually by illegal means. Any aliens they capture along the way are dissected and studied, and any humans caught with them are deemed worthless and disposed of. They also have a robotic dragon that protects one of their castles. It is revealed in Ultimate Alien that the reason for their actions is to combat Diagon, an entity from another dimension that nearly conquered the Earth in the Middle Ages were it not for the Forever Knights' immortal Founder George. When George left them, the Forever Knights began to splinter under various self-titled Forever Kings who transformed their knights' duty into a genocidal policy toward anything alien.
Each series has featured some kind of main transportation. The wheeled motor vehicles, appearing like normal cars, are equipped with several pieces of Plumber technology such as a turbo engine, laser guns, and autopilot. They are often destroyed during the series.
The Rustbucket and the Rustbucket II, is an old RV resembling a GMC motorhome owned by Max Tennyson. Despite being old, and even having been destroyed a few times, Max has great affection for it.
The Resolute is Tetrax Shard's spaceship
The Chimearan Hammer is Vilgax's spaceship
Ship is a Galvanic Mechamorph (Upgrade's species) that can transform himself into fully operational technology he's once touched. He merged with the Forever Knights spaceship and became the space transportation for Ben's team during the third season of Alien Force.
The Rustbucket III, a Plumbers' jet that Kevin has upgraded with alien tech, later replaced him.
Kevin's car is a Muscle car resembling a Dodge Challenger armed with Plumber technology as well as other various alien techs, including guns and off-road capabilities. It is the team's main transport in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. It is damaged or destroyed often, mainly during fights or chase scenes, and Kevin is constantly busy repairing it. In Omniverse, after Ben destroyed it while aiming at Upgrade, Kevin gave it a new look. He painted it blue and placed a white circle with the number 11 on it, with only one stripe.
The Proto-TRUK is Rook's spaceship and the team's main transport in Omniverse. It can transform into a small truck to camouflage itself among Earth vehicles. It was later destroyed and its parts were used by Ben 10, to build the Time Cycles.

I try to drink less and endure longer, but all the same, I have to do pi-pi twice a day. There are no bushes nearby, only stone boxes, but most of them have intercoms. Only in one house there are still no intercoms or combination locks, I go there to write, and I am not alone, there are still many vendors on the. Street who sell from stalls and stalls, so by the evening the entrance is almost all pissed off.
Although the residents of the building use little stairs, the building is 14 stories high and everyone takes the elevator.
