Power Scaling all of Ben’s Aliens

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So quite recently, a YouTuber by the moniker “Kuro the Artist” recently released a video in which he power scales all of Ben’s aliens from weakest to strongest.  If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out here.  Being the mega Ben 10 fan I am, I had some issues with his scaling of these aliens.  So I figured I’d try it out for myself and list every single alien Ben has used from weakest to strongest.  Now, some of my list will be similar to Kuro’s but I will have deviations here and there.  I’m using similar rules as his video (No fusions or Ultimate forms nor any future aliens) as to keep these consistent.  I’m also using the same tiering system he uses since that’s honestly a really easy way for me to rank these aliens since I could just divide all these aliens among the different tiers and then organize them within each tier.  So, let’s start!

My main criticisms of Kuro’s video is I wasn’t quite sure how they were tackling their scalings.  What I mean by this is they didn’t exactly define “power” in their power scaling.  My idea of “power” is primarily the ability to cause massive amount of damage or the ability to overwhelm opponents with pure strength, be it plain old muscle or maybe some sort of elemental manipulation or attacks.  I wasn’t quite sure how they were defining it though.  I know they had their tiering system and defined each tier so it should’ve been obvious from that, but when they put The Worst in tier 8 then that raises some confusions for me.  Their argument was that The Worst is indestructible, which is true, and therefore should fit comfortably in tier 8.  However, while The Worst may be indestructible, that’s literally his whole gimmick.  Tier 8  characters are capable of casually wiping out entire buildings and The Worst is just not capable of doing that.  In terms of pure strength, he’s easily below that of the average human.

In addition to this, I was confused by whether they where judging aliens based on their full potential, their current strength, or even how powerful they are in their average appearance.  For example, Feedback is arguably one of Ben’s most powerful aliens since he was capable of absorbing an entire big bang (which, just a reminder, the big bang held ALL of the matter and energy currently floating around our universe) and releasing it as a beam.  That means Feedback should, at his highest potential, be able to easily destroy planets, stars, or even solar systems.  However, this is a very rare case since Feedback doesn’t tend to have access to such a large amount of energy, which is probably why they decided to put him so low on the list.  But then they placed Cannonbolt as Ben’s 10th most powerful alien and they justified this position by stating that if Cannonbolt developed enough momentum he could destroy mountains or possibly even planets.  Which, ok fair enough, but again are we judging these aliens by their highest potential or are we judging them but their average capabilities?

 

Rulez

To avoid these same confusions, I’m going to make my rules very clear from the get-go.  If you have any questions or criticisms, please feel free to comment below and I’ll try to address them.

  • Ben prime aliens only
    • No Ultimate aliens
    • No Fusion aliens
    • No alternate universe aliens
    • No future aliens
  • I’m judging these characters by their greatest possible potential based on what we’ve seen in the show
    • Meaning I am taking into account the most powerful feats each alien has performed on-screen.  No speculations allowed.
  • Hax are not going to be included in the consideration for this list.  This list is based on pure strength alone.
    • They explained Hax better in their video (so I recommend watching it to get a better idea of the concept) but essentially I am not taking into consideration the following abilities when ranking them: Mind control/possession, shapeshifting, time manipulation, or emotional manipulation.
    • These abilities make power scaling somewhat difficult to measure since Hax can make a certain alien more threatening but that doesn’t make them any more powerful.  For example, whose stronger: Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers or Professor X?  Well, Carol is obviously much more powerful but that doesn’t necessarily means she would win a fight since Professor X could use his telepathy to win.
  • Just to make it clear, these are the main abilities I am looking at when I am considering this scaling: physical strength, speed, elemental manipulations, and energy attacks.  Some more minor abilities include: durability and intelligence.  Yes, durability is a good way to measure a character’s strength, but if they only have durability and they have no offensive abilities to back it up then they aren’t really powerful, are they?

 

Tier 10: Basic – Aliens that are roughly on par with a typical adult human

Below Average Human

Walkatrout

Powers:

  • Able to breathe both on land and in water
  • Slippery body

Walkatrout is probably Ben’s most useless alien.  The only use he really has is maybe an escape artist since Walkatrout is slippery enough to squeeze through even toilets if necessary.  One of Ben’s sillier aliens as well as his most useless alien.

Pesky Dust

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Dream manipulation
  • Dream entering

Hax detected:

  • Dream manipulation and entry

Pesky Dust’s species, the Nemuina, are some of the most feared aliens in the galaxy.  This is because they have the ability to make their target fall asleep and then can proceed to not only enter their dreams but control them.  While this is a very scary ability, for power scaling it doesn’t really count.  For a one-on-one combat, Pesky Dust is not the alien to go with.

The Worst

Powers:

  • Indestructible body

Kuro placed The Worst as a building level Tier 8 character due to The Worst’s indestructible body.  However, I feel like that’s a very weak justification for placing him so high on the list.  Sure, you can’t kill or defeat The Worst through brute strength alone, but he definitely doesn’t have the strength to beat you either.

Grey Matter

Powers:

  • Hyper intelligence

Galvans are the most intelligent species in the galaxy.  Because of this, I was almost tempted to place Grey Matter much higher on the list.  After all, seeing other hyper intelligent characters in TV like Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty can pretty much show that if you’re smart enough you can pretty much be a god.  However, I decided against that temptation because Ben never really seem to utilize Grey Matter’s intelligence to it’s full potential.  Meaning that Grey Matter, at a measly 5 inches tall, doesn’t really stand a chance in a fair fight among your average human toddler.

Jury Rigg

Powers:

  • Mechanical breaking and fixing

As his name implies, Jury Rigg’s primary ability consists of being able to rapidly break, fix, or even alter machinery at a rapid speed.  He’s even been able to make motorcycles out of random parts or a cannon out of a food truck.  Fun concept and fun to watch, but isolate him from any spare parts and he’s more of a nuisance than a threat.

Average Human

Toepick

Powers:

  • Fear induction

Hax detected:

  • Fear induction

Toepick was named dropped in the original series by Ben’s future son, Ken.  But he didn’t get an official design until Ben 10: Omniverse.  What we got is a fat ogre looking thing with the ability to induce fear into anybody who sees his face.  Unfortunately, that’s really all he got going for him.  Maybe he could even defeat Ben’s most powerful aliens with his ability, but that’s why hax doesn’t count.

ChamAlien

Powers:

  • Invisibility
  • Wall scaling
  • Retractable tail stinger

ChamAlien’s primary ability is to turn himself invisible, making him most useful for stealth.  In a battle, his primary strategy would be to surprise attack opponents by evading them.  However, characters that can detect him using methods outside eye sight can take advantage of the situation.

Athlete Level

Kickin Hawk

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength, speed, stamina
  • Elbow blades and talons

Kickin Hawk is one of my least favorite aliens but he exists so we need to talk about him.  Really he has very little going for him other than his blades and slightly above average physique.  Not exactly the most impressive of Ben’s aliens and not even really that interesting in any other sense.  He can’t even fly!  What gives?

Tier 9: Superhuman – Aliens that are above the strength that a typical human is capable of achieving

Street Level

Mole-Stache

Powers:

  • Mustache manipulation

Mole-Stache is a pretty stupid alien.  His main abilities revolve around his mustache as he’s able to manipulate it for various purposes.  He’s able to extend them as fists and even twirl them around to fly like Tails from the Sonic series.  Again, why couldn’t they give him like sharp claws and a digging ability?  He’s a f*cking mole!!!  C’mon!

Ditto

Powers

  • Duplication

I feel like Kuro kind of underestimated Ditto’s strength in his scaling video, cause Ditto’s a tad tougher then he gave him credit for.  Not by much, but he’s not below human.  Ditto has the ability to clone himself seemingly without limit.  His biggest weakness is that all of his clones are connected to each other.  So if one Ditto gets hurt, they all feel the same pain.  Kill one Ditto, you kill all the Dittos.  This makes him pretty risky to use in battle, but by cloning himself enough he can overpower an opponent through sheer numbers.

Whampire

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Super strength
  • Super speed
  • Hypnosis
  • Corrupturas – Mind control parasites
  • Bat form

Hax detected:

  • Hypnosis
  • Corrupturas

This is another odd one to me in terms of how Kuro ranked him.  Hax aside, Whampire is still a pretty decent fighter being capable of fighting a small number of aliens all by himself.  His strength alone makes him superhuman, granted probably not as strong as a traditional vampire.

Gutrot

Powers:

  • Chemical synthesis and expulsion

Hax detected:

  • Chemical synthesis and expulsion

Gutrot was introduced late into the series so his full abilities weren’t fully explored.  He can synthesize various chemicals in his body and release it for a variety of effects.  Tear gas, love pheromones, acid, etc.

Ball Weevil

Powers:

  • Explosive balls

Ball Weevil can spit up balls of goo that can trap and dissolve debris caught up in it’s ball.  Once Ball Weevil throws it at a target, the ball explodes.  The bigger the ball, the bigger the explosion.

Ampfibian

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Can breathe under water and on land
  • Stretchy limbs
  • Electricity manipulation and conduction
  • Electricity transformation
  • Telepathy
  • Intangibility

Hax detected:

  • Telepathy

AmpFibian’s species, the Amperis, are a race of jellyfish-like beings that can conduct, manipulate, and transform into electricity.  They can even use the bioelectricity in an organisms brain to read their thoughts and transfer consciousness.  Outside of these hax though, his electrical powers are probably enough to help in fights against lower level tier villains but that’s about it.

Wildmutt

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength
  • Enhanced agility
  • Strong jaws and sharp teeth
  • 360 degree detection via smell and sound

Wildmutt is one of the original 10 aliens Ben started out with when he first got the omnitrix and doesn’t really make sense within the context of the series since Omniverse became a thing, but that’s not very important at this moment.  As you may have noticed, Wildmutt possesses no eyes making him essentially blind.  Despite this, his sense of smell and hearing are so sensitive that he essentially has 360 degree “vision” making it easier to fight multiple opponents at once and makes surprise attacks virtually impossible.  Think Daredevil from Marvel Comics or Toph Beifong from Avatar: The Last Airbender.  In addition to his unique senses, Wildmutt is much stronger than the typical human being as he can tear the roof off of cars with ease and shred through many of Vilgax’s robots with little difficulty.

Bullfrag

Powers:

  • Enhanced Strength, speed, and durability
  • Enhanced jumping
  • Long strong tongue

Bullfrag is an Incursion, which is basically a species of alien frog Nazis (yes, I know they made that joke in the original video but it’s just a perfect description).  Typical Incursions are actually quite weak but the Omnitrix gives Ben’s transformations the peak physique that a member of any species is capable of reaching.  This gives Bullfrag great skills in hand to hand combat.  In addition to that, his tongue serves as an easy long range attach which is strong enough to hold the Billions Tower sign.

Nanomech

Powers:

  • Shrink to microscopic sizes
  • Laser
  • Flight

Nanomech is honestly one Ben’s most bizarre transformations since he’s technically not even an alien.  He’s a hybrid of human DNA mixed with a nanochip.  Which doesn’t even make any sense.  Ben is a human so the Omnitrix can’t transform him into a human, and nanochips are machines so they don’t even have DNA?  Regardless of this “alien” (can you even call him that when both his human half and nanochip half are from Earth?), Nanomech is actually a lot tougher then he looks.  He can shrink down small enough to be unseen by the naked eye and his lasers are strong enough to harm a To’Kustar.  If you don’t know what a To’Kustar is, it’s Way Big’s species (look further down on this list) who can reach 120 feet tall.

Wall Level

Stinkfly

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Slime expulsion
  • Exoskeleton enhanced durability
  • Abdomen blade and sharp pincers

Kuro’s placement of Stinkfly seemed weird to me.  He placed him under Tier 8, which makes no sense to me since Stinkfly can’t destroy a building.  The primary reason I think Kuro placed Stinkfly so high on his list is because Stinkfly has been shown to be able to fly with Vilgax’s body weight in the air and his exoskeleton increases his durability more than most.  However, Stinkfly is still not very strong in terms of brute strength so I’m placing him lower on my list.

Wildvine

Powers:

  • Elesticity
  • Seed bombs
  • Merge with plant life
  • Regeneration

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Wildvine was one of the coolest aliens in the original series since he’s literally a living plant.  Wait, plants are living…sentient plant, there we go!  He can stretch his limbs to entangle enemies and use seed bombs as his strongest offense.

Articguana

Powers:

  • Ice breath
  • Enhanced durability

Articguana’s most useful ability is his ability to blow wind so cold it freezes everything it touches.  Future Ben was capable of freezing water before Vilgax could even reach the surface and 16 year old Ben was able to freeze an entire river of lava in seconds.

Ripjaws

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength
  • Powerful jaws
  • Sharp teeth and claws
  • Can breathe underwater

Ripjaws was like my second favorite alien when I was a kid since he reminded me of a mermaid when he was underwater.  A mermaid leaning less on the beauty side and more on the terrifying side, but whatever!  He can swim very fast and his jaws are strong enough to rip through pretty much any form of metal.

Fasttrack

Powers:

  • Super speed
  • Enhanced strength

Fasttrack has been confirmed by the Man of Action to be much slower than the more famous XLR8 but is a tad stronger in terms of muscle as he was even capable of carrying two people in his arms without slowing down, and one of those people were roughly the size of a very muscular adult human male.  I honestly just kind of think of him as Nightwing if Nightwing could run a few hundred miles an hour.  While he may be fast, enemies with a keen eye have been able to stop him in his tracks.  I haven’t been able to find any official max speed though so determining his full potential as somewhat difficult.

Brainstorm

Powers:

  • Hyper intelligence
  • Electricity production and manipulation
  • Telekinesis via electricity manipulation
  • Force fields via electricity manipulation
  • Enhanced durability via exoskeleton
  • Pincers

Brainstorm is Ben’s second smartest alien.  While Grey Matter is still much smarter, Brainstorm is actually big enough and strong enough to do some combat and even has the ability to generate electricity from his mind to aid him.  With this electricity, he can create force fields durable enough to withstand Ultimate Cannonbolt and can telekinetically lift objects the size of trains.

Small Building

Bloxx


Powers:

  • Shapeshifting
  • Regeneration

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Bloxx is Ben’s stupidest alien but not his weakest.  Bloxx’s entire gimmick is being made of legos (I’m not kidding or exaggerating) and can therefore shapeshift by building himself into various shapes and sizes.  However, he’s not very strong as his builds break very easily.

Goop

Powers:

  • Liquid biology
  • Shapeshifting
  • Regeneration
  • Flight

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Goop is a living liquid and therefore can change his shape as easy as, well, a liquid.  Despite this, he can make himself solid enough to restrain enemies and can even punch them with enough force to knock them quite a distance.  On Kuro’s list, they placed Goop at Tier 7 which I feel like just overestimates Goop’s strength.  After all, Tier 7 is the nuclear tier and there is no way Goop can withstand or exert a nuclear bomb.

Eye Guy

Powers:

  • 360 Degree vision
  • Lasers
  • Ice beams
  • Fire blasts
  • Electricity blasts

As his name suggests, Eye Guy’s body is covered in eyes.  These eyes are able to produce various energy based attacks such as lasers, ice beams, and even lightning.

Ghostfreak

Powers:

  • Intangibility
  • Invisibility
  • Possession
  • Flight
  • Telekinesis
  • Tentacles

Hax detected:

  • Possession

Ghostfreak was a really hard transformation for me to decide where to rank him.  His most threatening abilities comes in his ability to phase through solid matter and posses living things.  However, possession is a hax and therefore doesn’t count.  But does he deserve the Tier 7 ranking Kuro gave him?  To be honest, I’m not sure.  I feel like Kuro placed Ghostfreak so high because he probably could survive a nuclear blast given that he turns intangible.  But I care more about the type of damage a character can exert, not just what they can withstand.  What they’re able to withstand should be taken into consideration, but isn’t the end all be all.  So I decided to place him lower since take away his hax and he’s not as threatening.

Tier 8: Urban – Aliens capable of casually destroying a buildings or even cities

Building Level

Buzzshock

Powers:

  • Electricity manipulation and conduction
  • Flight
  • Sonic scream
  • Regeneration
  • Duplication

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Buzzshock is a lot more powerful than he looks.  He can turn himself into pure electricity and can also manipulate said electricity.  He can duplicate himself either by being cut in half and regenerating or absorbing enough power to simply generate more of himself.  When he gains enough energy to create multiple duplicates, he can easily cause massive damage by electrical energy strong enough to run a city or a sonic scream.

Water Hazard

Powers:

  • Water generation
  • Vapor absorption
  • Exoskeleton enhanced durability

Water Hazard has two holes in each palm of his hands that he can use to shoot large bursts of water and his exoskeleton protects him from various attacks.

Clockwork

Powers:

  • Time manipulation
  • Time travel
  • Time rays

Hax detected:

  • Time manipulation
  • Time travel
  • Time rays

I originally was going to place this character much higher on this list cause Clockwork is actually a very powerful character.  He can manipulate time which can allow him to run at super speeds, kind of like Hunter Zolomon aka the Reverse Flash.  He can even time travel and age things to dust.  The only issue is that these abilities, despite being powerful, are all haxy as sh*t.  Can you even rank him higher when all of his abilities are haxed to crap?  If I could, I’d put this guy way higher.  Hell, the last villain of the series was the same species and he was one of the most dangerous villains in the show.  I would argue Clock Work is at least in the top 10 if his powers weren’t all haxes.

Rath

Powers:

  • Super strength
  • Retractable claws

Rath is one of the more fun aliens in Ben’s omnitrix.  He’s complete brute strength and has an aggressive personality making more brutal then most aliens in a fight.  He was even able to go toe-to-toe with a Tetramand/Human hybrid.

Blitzwolfer

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength, speed, and durability
  • Sharp claws and teeth
  • Enhanced smell and hearing
  • Sonic scream

Blitzwolfer is basically an alien werewolf.  He’s a slightly humanoid wolf with all the traits of a wolf.  He’s faster and strong and has claws and teeth to boot.  What makes Blitzwolfer stand out is his sonic scream that is capable of lifting him in the air with two passengers.  Kuro made the claim that Kevin 11 thousand (Kevin 11 in the future) used Blitzwolfer’s scream to practically shatter Diamondhead, but I’m not sure if we could count that as Blitzwolfer or not.  It’s hard to determine since Kevin absorbed the abilities of 11 thousand aliens (hence the name) so can we really be certain that was Blitzwolfer’s sonic howl he used?

Shocksquatch

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength
  • Electricity manipulation and conduction

Shocksquatch is strong enough to city lamp posts out of the ground and swing it around with ease and can break concrete.  His strength can be backed up by his electricity which enhances his attacks.  He was even able to electrocute a Tetramand princess.  Tetramands are Four Arms’s species and the females tend to be stronger than the males.

Frankenstrike

Powers:

  • Super strength
  • Electricity conduction
  • Enhanced intelligence

There’s very little in terms of abilities that differentiates Frankenstrike from Shocksquatch.  Both have superstrength enhanced by their electrical abilities.  I only place Frankenstrike slightly higher on the list since I believe he’s slightly stronger considering he can easily take out Techadon robots with a single punch.  Plus, his DNA was extracted from Dr. Victor giving him a slightly higher intelligence.

Chromastone

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength and durability
  • Energy absorption
  • Laser expulsion
  • Flight
  • Regeneration

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Chromastone is a living energy conductor.  He can absorb energy into his body and release it in the form of rainbow energy blasts (gayy).  Despite his durability, he has been shattered twice in the past but can regenerate.

Snare-oh

Powers:

  • Shapeshifting
  • Bandage manipulation
  • Enhanced strength, speed, and durability
  • Regeneration

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

I was actually surprised Snare-oh reached this high.  I thought I’d put him at tier 9, but he makes more sense under tier 8 when all his feats are considered.  After all, a member of his species went toe-to-toe with XLR8 and Snare-oh is strong enough to contain a princess Tetramand.

Spidermonkey

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength, speed, durability, and agility
  • Enhanced smell and hearing
  • Wall crawling
  • Web production

I’m sorry, Spidermonkey is one of my favorite Ben 10 aliens.  After all, he’s a six legged blue monkey with Spider-man’s power set.  Ugh, I love this cute lil guy!  But there is no way Spidermonkey is tier 7.  Spidermonkey was clearly a tier 8 character to me, but where in tier 8 was the question.  Ultimately, I decided to out him as the strongest member of the building level group since I think that spot suits him the best.  He’s strong enough to bat Ultimate Kevin with a lamp post, agile enough to fight multiple enemies at once, and his webs can help immobilize enemies.  Like I said, he’s basically Spider-man if Peter was a blue monkey.

City Block Level

Upchuck

Powers:

  • Can consume any inorganic object
  • Explosive spit bombs
  • Four long tongues

I was so confused with Kuro’s placement of Upchuck on his list.  He placed Upchuck not only as tier 10, but below the average human.  Despite this, he even stated that Upchuck swallowed and spit out a bomb the strength of a dwarf star and even destroyed Mt. Rushmore.  I wasn’t aware the average human was stronger than a dwarf-star-spitting alien capable of the destruction of four giant statues.  I almost placed Upchuck higher on this list since he did swallow and spit out an explosion the size of a star, buuuuut we’ve only seen him destroy something as large as Mt. Rushmore and nothing bigger then that.  So I figured I’d place him here.

Terraspin

Powers:

  • Wind manipulation and tornado generation
  • Flight
  • Enhance durability

This is another character that confused me on Kuro’s list since his ranking seemed to contradict their description of Terraspin’s power level.  They placed him as a tier 9, superhuman, and then went on to talk about how Terraspin could create tornadoes capable of destroying city blocks.  Hmm, it seems as though the city block level is a little higher than superhuman!  I don’t know if I’m misunderstanding them or what, but the contradictory placement and description confused me.

Multi-City Block Level

Armodrillo

Powers:

  • Super strength and durability
  • Earthquake generation via jackhammer arms
  • Enhanced digging

They placed Armodrillo under building level, which I was fine with considering his feats shown in the show.  However, one of the creators stated that Armodrillo is apparently stronger than base Humungousaur.  I’m unable to find said source and none of his feats seem to support this claim, so maybe I’m pulling this out of my *ss.  However, Andreas, the alien Armodrillo’s DNA was sampled from, did survive a machine capable of destroying multiple city blocks (by the way, that was a very sad episode).

Upgrade

Powers:

  • Liquid metal biology
  • Shapeshifting
  • Laser beam
  • Machine possession
  • Technology manipulation

Hax detected:

  • Machine possession

Upgrade’s main ability is his ability to control machines of all forms and enhance them to amp of their strengths.  He can take your broken down car and turn it into a tricked-out war vehicle on par with the Batmobile (btw, if Batman and Ben 10 ever has a crossover and Ben doesn’t “Upgrade” the Batmobile, then there will be no point to that crossover).  Even despite the hax, Upgrade is still super strong.  Being made out of liquid metal and can shapeshift into a variety of weaponry.

Tier 7: Nuclear – Aliens capable of withstanding or producing the strength of a nuclear bomb

Town Level

Eatle

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength and durability
  • Enhanced ingestion
  • Laser production

Me and Kuro both agree that Eatle is basically Upchuck but stronger.  However, Kuro placed Eatle at building level tier 8 despite admitting that Eatle was able to go toe-to-toe with Dagon infused Vilgax.  DAGON INFUSED VILGAX.  Holy sh*t, how can he not at least be tier 7?  I was tempted to put him higher, but it just didn’t feel right.

Swampfire

Powers:

  • Super strength
  • Regeneration
  • Fire production
  • Plant manipulation
  • Sleep induction

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Swampfire is a whole lot stronger than I remember him being.  Not only is he strong enough to take on both a Kineceleran (XLR8)/human hybrid and a Tetramand (Four Arms)/human hybrid, but he can also knock over a Highbreed weather tower.  That plus he can generate flames from his palms, but he can’t manipulate them.  He’s kind of a lamer version of Heatblast mixed with a slightly cooler version of Woldvine.

Astrodactyl

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Super speed
  • Star power whips
  • Star power lasers
  • Star power shock waves

Yeah, I doubt Astrodactyl is Ben’s 11th strongest alien.  I don’t even think his feats have shown that he’s anywhere close to that.  However, he has some sort of star power he utilizes so I guess tier 7 is a good spot for him.

City Level

Crashhopper

Powers:

  • Enhanced jumping
  • Durable skull

Kuro placed Crashhopper at mountain level, but I’m not quite convinced he’s that powerful.  However, he is strong enough to jump multiple miles in the air and he’s capable of destroying missiles just by jumping into them.  However, one thing I found a little funny was the fact that Kuro stated Four Arms could defeat Princess Looma (remember, female Tetramands are usually stronger) and placed Four Arms under Crashhopper, yet Princess Looma easily defeated Crashhooper like he was a measly bug.  So I’m not quite convinced of this mountain level capabilities.

Lodestar

Powers:

  • Magnetism
  • Flight
  • Regeneration

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Create an alien Magneto, and you have Lodestar.  I almost placed Lodestar as Mountain level, but I decided against it because we really haven’t seen him perform feats that powerful.  I’d say his most impressive feat was his battle against the Naljian Destructor, a 20+ level piece of tech used by the Naljians (which are easily tier 3 and might even be tier 2).  However, Lodestar didn’t defeat the Destructor alone and only served to open the machine up long enough for the weak spot to be attacked.  Although, it would be cool to see Lodestar use his magnetism to the extremes like Magneto likes to do.  Although, I have a feeling Magneto is miles more powerful.

Mountain Level

XLR8

Powers:

  • Super speed

Ben’s signature speed alien isn’t actually his fastest.  Although I feel like Kuro’s team might’ve underestimated him anyways.  They stated that at 10 years old, XLR8 was able to run at about 500 mph.  And I’ve seen other sources, such as the Ben 10 wiki, spit out this number too.  I would say that’s probably an average speed (which is quite impressive) but in one episode he was able to run fast enough that he couldn’t be seen with the naked eye.  To do this, he would have to be running at over 3800 mph.  That’s even faster than the speed of sound!  Not quite as fast as the speed of light though.  I tried to do the calculations to see how much force he could exert at those speeds (F=MA^2 and all that) but I fucked it up and I don’t feel like redoing it.  I suspect that type of speed would be enough to do some serious mountain level damage, but I’m actually not 100% sure.  So I’m placing him as the weakest alien under mountain level just as a fall back.  If he’s not mountain level, then I’ll default him to city level.

Cannonbolt

Powers:

  • Super durable shell
  • Ball form

Cannonbolt was ranked as Ben’s 10th most powerful alien for them.  I can agree with their tier placement for him as with enough momentum Cannonbolt probably could destroy a mountain.  However, that requires a lot of momentum to be built up and unless he’s falling from orbit that’s probably not going to happen quite often.

Four Arms

Powers:

  • Super strength

They f*cking nerfed Four Arms on their list.  Building level tier 8?  Really???  Four Arms is capable of going toe-to-toe with some of Ben’s most powerful villains like full-strength Aggragor, Vilgax, and Kevin 11.  He can pluck missiles out of mid-air, force them to change direction, and use them to fly.  He can create earthquakes by punching the ground or create shock waves by clapping his hands.  He can even defeat a a female Tetramand, and female Tetramands can toss around male Tetramands like rag dolls.  Four Arms.  Is.  A.  BEAST!

Jetray

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Hyperspace level speeds
  • Underwater breathing
  • Neuroshock lasers

I was surprised that Jetray was so high on their list when I watched it for the first time.  I can see why they placed him so high, but top 10 still seems a big much imo.  Jetray is easily Ben’s fastest alien as he can enter hyperspace like we can go 40 mph in a car.  And his lasers are strong enough to defeat the Hand of Armeggedon, which created the grand canyon.  That feat alone is why I agreed with Jetray’s status as mountain level.

Heatblast

Powers:

  • Fire creation and manipulation
  • Flight
  • Enhance strength and durability

Heatblast’s species, the Pyronites, live on a sun.  So naturally, they are adapted for extreme temperatures.  At age 10, Heatblast was capable of being thrown through multiple buildings with relatively little harm and could melt asphalt in a matter of seconds in order to slowdown Vilgax.  Since then, he’s gotten stronger with age and has been shown to be able to face Vilgax even better in later series.

COUNT DOWN FOR TOP 10 MOST POWERFUL ALIEN

Diamondhead – #10

Powers:

  • Enhanced strength and durability
  • Regeneration
  • Shapeshifting and weapon formation
  • Crystal manipulation

Hax detected:

  • Regeneration

Diamondhead has been one of Ben’s strongest aliens since the original series and has only gotten stronger from there.  With each new series that the Ben 10 franchise has made, Diamondhead has only gotten stronger.  Before Ben 10: Alien Force, the only alien to single handed defeat Vilgax was the alien Way Big who threw Vilgax into space in the first movie.  Diamondhead was the second alien capable of defeating Vilgax all by himself by crushing him under multiple giant pillars of levitating crystals.  Placing Diamondhead under building level is a great disservice to his strength imo.

Echo Echo – #9

Powers:

  • Duplication
  • Sonic scream

Oh look, the not-Ditto.  Yeah, he’s probably not island level but I have to admit he is way up there.  Since Echo Echo can create a sonic scream and duplicate, he could team up to scream a mountain to dust.  But destabilize an island?  Probably only in his Ultimate form and there’s no Ultimates allowed on this list.

Tier 6: Tectonic – Capable of destabilizing the continental crust of a small island or even a continent

Island Level

Humungousaur – #8

Powers:

  • Super Strength and surability
  • Size alteration
  • Strength boost

When going over Humungousaur, Kuro’s team argued that Humungousaur could arguably be dwarf star level in strength.  I feel like that’s an exaggeration, but he’s definitely strong enough to destroy a mountain.  I’d even argue he could probably destroy an entire island without going Ultimate, hence my placement here.  The creators in the past has stated that Humungousaur is strong enough to lift Way Big.  We’ve only seen Ultimate Humungousaur perform this feat on-screen, but considering how insanely powerful Ultimate Humungousaur is, regular Humungousar could probably achieve that same feat.  And that’s in his base form!  He’s able to grow from 12 feet tall to 60 feet tall and his strength can be multiplied by up to 6times!  Now, I’m usually not really into versus battles since I find them boring and pointless, but I would really love to see an MCU Hulk vs Humungousaur battle.  I’m using MCU Hulk because I feel like comic book Hulk is just too powerful to be a fair fight.  Comic book Hulk has gone world breaker and can reach planetary levels of strength, MCU Hulk hasn’t quite reached that yet.

NRG – #7

Powers (in suit):

  • Enhance strength and durability
  • Radiation production (limited)
  • Heat conduction

Powers (out of suit):

  • Radiation production
  • Flight
  • Intangibility
  • Enhanced speed

NRG is made out of pure radiation and requires a containment suit in order to not harm those around him.  Outside of said suit, his radiation is no longer inhibited and he’s basically flying around with more energy than a nuclear explosion.

Country Level

Big Chill – #6

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Intangibility
  • Invisibility
  • Ice breath
  • Ice manipulation

When I saw Kuro place Big Chill under tier 6, I thought he was way off.  Until he mentioned that Big Chill made it snow in the Null Void.  I looked it up, and he’s right!  So if he was able to make it snow in the Null Void, he very well must be a country level alien.  Which, judging by his skilled abilities to generate and manipulate his ice, how powerful even is Ultimate Big Chill?  Yeesh, I doubt we’ve even scratched the surface with him.

Tier 5: Planatary – Aliens capable of exert or endure the power to destroy a planet the size of Earth

Small Planet Level

Gravattack – #5

Powers:

  • Gravity manipulation

Kuro placed Gravattack as mountain level, and at first glance that seems to be a good place to put him considering most of his feats.  However, at one point Gravattack accidentally made a black hole which was in the process of destroying Earth!  Do you know how many Gs are necessary to make a black hole?  Like, a lot!  I was actually thinking about putting him at tier 4, but to be fair we don’t know how big the black hole would’ve gotten if time wasn’t altered.  So here’s tier 5 for just accidentally making a black hole.

Large Planet Level

Atomix – #4

Powers:

  • Super strength, speed, and durability
  • Radiation generation and manipulation
  • Flight

The funny thing about Atomix, the creators of the show has stated that Atomix is Ben’s second most powerful transformation right behind Alien X.  So if you’re the type of person who takes the creator’s words as gospel, then both Kuro and I are wrong.  Kuro placed Atomix as the third most powerful of Ben’s aliens, I have him as 4.  But don’t get me wrong, Atomix is a heavy hitter.  He bats around Ultimates like their nothing and Ultimates are WAY stronger than most aliens.

Tier 4: Stellar – Aliens capable of wiping out entire stars

Star Level

Way Big – #3

Powers:

  • Super strength, speed, and durability
  • Couple hundred feet tall
  • Arm laser
  • Cosmic storm manipulation

Other than Atomix, Way Big is the only alien that can really bat around Ultimate aliens like they’re every day chumps.  Although his size is somewhat inconsistent throughout the show (sometimes he’s about three times taller than a typical house, other times he’s taller than a sky scraper), his official height is stated to be 120 feet tall.  He can throw enemies his size into orbit and shoot lasers stringer than those capable of destroying planets.  No wonder these guys live in actual cosmic storms.

Solar System Level

Feedback – #2

Powers:

  • Energy absorption
  • Energy expulsion

This is probably my most controversial pick, but I stand by it.  Granted, Just A Robot (who was narrating this section of Kuro’s video) seemed to agree with me as he stated that Feedback is only Ben’s second strongest under certain conditions.  And while that’s true, that’s still Feedback’s max potentially!  He held a big bang in his hands and then shot the energy.  Let me remind all of you what a big bang is: a big bang is a singularity that contained all of the matter and energy in the universe before it became the universe we have today.  Honestly, I kinds debated on putting Feedback as Tier 3.  If he can shoot a Big Bang, could he wipe out entire galaxies?

Tier 3: Cosmic – Aliens capable of wiping out entire galaxies

Tier 2: Multiversal – Aliens capable of wiping out entire timelines or universes

Tier 1: Extradimensional – Beings beyond or three dimensional capabilities

Alien X – #1

Powers:

  • Omnipotence

Alien X is essentially alien god.  He can manipulate reality however he pleases.  He has even created an entire universe!  His only downside is the fact that he has three personalities in his mind and 2/3 of his personalities need to agree on an action before performing it.  But considering how he can literally due whatever he wanted so long as those personalities agree, that’s god tier abilities right there.

 

What did you think?

So, this was somewhat of a partial response to Kuro’s video.  So, I’d recommend watching his video and seeing who you agree with more.  Maybe I don’t know shit about power scaling and this entire post was a waste of time.  or maybe my scaling makes more sense than his did.  Please, let me know what you think in the comments below!
