At the beginning

Benjamin Tennyson before becoming the immense force of justice and defender of earth, started out with only ten Alien heroes which he could transform into. The first ten through courage, innovation and luck managed to fight and conquer insurmountable adversary to triumph against very bad, brutal and tough aliens.

Remember Ben Tennyson otherwise known as Ben10 was just a kid of aged ten. Initially he could only transform himself into ten alien life forms which ironically he felt was the summation of the omnitrix immense powers. He did not know that with time the DNA wristwatch upgrades and reveals new exciting heroes, Aliens Ben could use to defend the earth.

Being a ten year old boy and encountering such extraordinary aliens he decided to name each alien he transformed into, having no knowledge of their origin, planet or abilities. Only after battle or during transformation did Ben give his aliens names.

The first ten alien transformations were Heatblast a fire element alien, Wildmut a blind doglike alien, Diamondhead an alien with the ability to manipulate crystals the very element that makes up the aliens anatomy, XLR8 a very fast alien and Greymatter a tiny Galvan alien with immense intelligence.

The other five in the top ten aliens Ben 10 first transformed into include Four Arms a very courageous and strong alien with an ego problem, Stinkfly a smelly sap spitting fly-like alien, Ripjaws an alien with jaws of steel, Upgrade a cool Galvanic technology morphing alien and the scary entity Ghost freak.

Ben10s first alien heroes were really cool kickass aliens they dominated many series and even made some appearance in some of the Ben10 films. The Aliens in the omnitrix were based on alien life forms the omnitrix maker implanted into the device using DNA strands of each species.

So unknown to Ben Tennyson he was transforming into alien life forms that actually existed in other planets and worlds in the universe, some of the alien planets and ability gave the ten their unique powers.

Upgrade is a very cool alien life form that Ben Tennyson transforms into; the alien has the ability to bond with any known technology morphing into any technology it can think of. Upgrade also has the ability to bond with living organisms but in the case of Ben's upgrade the transformation is incomplete so he becomes only a fraction of what the alien can become.

Upgrade is a Galvanic Mechamorph from a distant moon called Galvan B, the moon is known to orbit or rotate round the planet Galvan Prime. The aliens bonding and upgrading abilities are the hero’s powers it possesses and interestingly a voice change when transformed into upgrade is not noticeable like in other alien life forms Ben changes into.


Upgrade body is made-up of liquid metal which are nanotechnology based this allows the alien reshape its form easily around any sized object subsequently upgrading it into a better higher technology. The alien can melt and regenerate into any form it attaches itself to, reshape body and construct simple plasma beams into weapon objects. The alien can shot plasma beams concentrated in an eye without using any external technology and fire energy rays occasionally.


The biggest weakness noticeable in this alien is its greatest strength which is the liquefied metal body; the body cannot maintain upgrade shapes for long. It also finds it very difficult to merge with any complex machinery such as sentient robot warriors and the alien can’t merge with biological creatures. Also metal corrosion is the alien’s kryptonite because it interferes with the nontechnology that is the alien’s building block.

Heatblast the fire alien

Heatblast is a fire element alien with the ability to manipulate fire and heat which it uses for propulsion and weaponry, Heatblast is magma based like volcanic element and is a Pyronite. The very first alien life form we saw was Heatblast which occurred by mistake when the omnitrix accidentally got activated.


Heatblast ability comes from fire, the entire alien is made-up of magma and it uses it to its advantage, in order to fly it fires incredible amounts of fire downward creating lift. The alien can use fire projectiles, create whirlwind flames, tornadoes of fire, uses localized explosions and can absorb fire

The negative aspect is the alien’s inability to control the heat it generates, becoming a cryokinetic being when its host Ben 10 catches a flu/cold and when drenched with sufficient amount of water losses its heat making ability.

Wildmutt is a Vulpimancer from the Garbage planet

The radar sense gives it accuracy like a bat while adult Vulpimancer use porcupine like gills on the back as projectiles, protection and cutting.
