Ben 10 Characters
Ben Tennyson is a ten-year-old boy known as Ben 10, not only as a nickname from his bigger name but also because the alien device on his hand allows him to transform into ten different aliens, as well as the fact that he is ten of age, at least at the start of the series. He is spunky, really brave, as he is always down for some action, and gets in all sorts of trouble often. His first instinct, whenever a problem appears, is to hit the Omnitrix, transform, and save the day. In the beginning, he was not able to use the Omnitrix really well, sometimes ending up with different aliens than the ones he wanted to use. If you want a good here by your side, Ben is always a great pick!
Gwen Tennyson is also ten, is Ben’s cousin, and she has red hair. She might not have an alien device to help her, but she is the smartest of the group, so she always comes up with the best plans to save the situation, and she is just as curious as to her cousin. She might pick on the boy quite a lot, but she does it to help him improve, and she is really the best help he could get in their adventures since their teamwork is integral to winning each fight they take on.
Max Tennyson, their grandfather, used to be a Plumber, who are secret agents that had to deal with alien encounters and aliens invading Earth. He thought he was done with that life, and enjoying retirement until he took Ben and Gwen on a cross-country trip in his RV, where Ben happened upon the device. Max is wise, as he is older and knows a lot, is always down for an adventure, and is always there to support the duo of his grandkids, as he is the only man alive being able to match their incredible energy!
Let’s talk about the ten classic aliens that Ben has in his Omnitrix, and people know and love a lot, shall we? Four Arms is a huge red alien who is strong, and, well, he has four arms he can use in fights. Heatblast is made out of the fire and gives Ben pyrokinesis powers. Cannonbolt is huge and can transform into a sphere that makes him indestructible. Diamondhead is an alien that is made out of sharp diamonds, which he can alter to make weapons on his body. XLR8 is the fastest alien of Ben’s, who does not only run really fast but also has accelerated thinking.
Grey Matter is really small but is the smartest alien that can conjure the best strategies just out of his tiny head, while Stinkfly is an insect-like alien that can fly. Wildvine is green and plant-like, being able to conjure vines that he shoots at enemies with. Upgrade can shapeshift, and he can hack and take over any technology, car, or machine, upgrading it and using it to his advantage.
