Why bother with a cell? This human body is prison enough...But someday I'll be free. Then, they will all suffer, starting with Ben Tennyson. Until that day...BRING ME CHILI FRIES!

– Albedo, while in prison.[4]

Albedo (pronounced "al-bee-do" in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien and "al-bay-do" in Omniverse) is a recurring villain in the franchise as well as a secondary villain in Alien Force.

He is Azmuth's former assistant, who, in his attempt to recreate the Omnitrix, turned himself into an imperfect clone of Ben Tennyson. Since then, he has been trying to get back to his Galvan form, while also harboring a great hatred and thirst for revenge for Ben Tennyson and Azmuth.

Appearance[]

Human Form[]

His first appearance is exactly the same as Ben's, but after his and Ben's Omnitrix reacted to each other, it sent out a pulse that damaged his DNA and thus his form, inverting his colors. This made his hair white, his skin slightly paler, his eyes red, and turned the colors of his jacket from green with white stripes to red with black stripes, and his jeans from blue to dark grey. His T-shirt was white in Good Copy, Bad Copy and black in his remaining appearances in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien.

Albedo's human form has not changed much in Omniverse though he now has dark circles under his eyes and paler skin. His jacket's design is mirrored, with the black stripe with a 0ᛚ now on his right side, along with additional pockets. He wears the Ultimatrix on his right hand.

In The Ultimate Heist, Albedo wore a red mirrored version of Ben's current T-shirt before changing into his older attire. While pretending to be Ben, he would wear a brunette wig and green contact lenses.

Beginning in For a Few Brains More, Albedo is transformed into an 11-year-old version of Ben. As such, he wears a red and black version of Ben's old shirt with grey pants, while still having his red eyes and white hair.

After he got arrested in Malgax Attacks, Albedo has a concrete guard on his right wrist, covering the Ultimatrix, and a shackle on his left leg.

Galvan Form[]

In Double or Nothing, Albedo's Galvan form had red eyes, a red Galvan tunic with black stripes, pale skin without tendrils or wrinkles and fully open eyes.

In Omniverse, Albedo's Galvan form has changed drastically in terms of appearance. His chin is stretched further down and visible tufts of hair now stick out of both eyes. Two smaller whiskers also stick out from Albedo's chin.

In the flashback portion of Trouble Helix, Albedo wears a robe/tunic with the Omnitrix symbol on it and metal on his legs, neck, and most of his arms. He had a normal Galvan face with green eyes.

In the present, he looks like he did in Trouble Helix, but the green is replaced by red and he has an Ultimatrix symbol on his back.

Transformations[]

In Good Copy, Bad Copy, Albedo's transformations were indistinguishable from Ben's.

In The Final Battle, Albedo's transformations had red eyes and Ultrimatrix symbols.

In Ultimate Alien, Albedo's transformations were generally similar to how they were in The Final Battle, they this time they lack Ultimatrix symbols.

In Omniverse, Albedo's transformations are similar to 16-year-old Ben Prime's, excluding his Galvan form. This time, their color schemes reflecting Albedo's own color scheme, being mostly red and/or paler. In some cases, they have a reverse pattern in their outfits.

Personality[]

"What is it with you anyway, Albedo? You got what you wanted, you're a Galvan again! So go away and live out your little Galvan life somewhere, away from me!"
"And what? I am supposed to just forget the imprisonment? The humiliation? And the... chili fries!?"

– Ben and Albedo.[5]

Before he turned against Azmuth, Albedo was an eccentric genius who was very respectful of Azmuth, and was concerned for the safety of others. At the same time, he still showed an arrogant sense of superiority toward others, mostly in terms of intelligence.[6]

In the present day, Albedo is arrogant, self-centered, ambitious, and bitter. He is also a bit envious, since he's uncapable to accept Ben's right to being the wielder of the Omnitrix, thinking that Ben is just an unworthy human.[4] He bears animosity towards Azmuth, even so much as claiming the credit for the creation of the Omnitrix for himself. Originally being a scientist, he speaks with a larger vocabulary, being more intellectual than Ben, though in a rather cold and condescending manner. He also refuses to take blame for his actions as shown when he blamed Ben for his form turning negative despite it being his fault that the pulse that turned his form negative was emitted.

Because he had gained Ben's DNA, Albedo acquired Ben's cravings and habits, which he considers utterly repulsive: He has the same taste in food, scratches himself in "suspected" inappropriate places, and his left eye twitches whenever he lies. As a running gag of the series, he develops an insatiable craving for chili fries, even more than Ben himself, calling it a "human weakness." Originally, he had hated this habit, but develops a liking for them, though he denies this and blames it on his human DNA.

Albedo is suspicious and distrustful of others. During his brief team up with Vilgax, he had his suspicions of Vilgax betraying him from the very beginning, which is later proved correct after they had beaten Ben and taken his Omnitrix. After absorbing Azmuth's intelligence, he briefly gained an enlightened personality, which led him to realize that destruction was pointless while creation was truly worthwhile. However, he soon reverted to his normal disposition after Azmuth's mind was extracted from him.

Despite his rude nature, he has shown to have a kind and nice attitude to his allies. The most notable instance is in the episode Double or Nothing where Albedo didn't blame Hugh for ruining his chance of becoming a complete Galvan again and instead blamed Ben, despite the fact that it was Hugh who lied to the team that Albedo was building a doomsday device, which is the reason the team went after Albedo (though the reason why he did it was because he didn't want Albedo to leave him).

History[]

Background[]

Trouble Helix (436)

Albedo finishing the Helix

Albedo was a brilliant young Galvan scientist, who served as Azmuth's assistant. In Trouble Helix, he inadvertently had a hand in upgrading Malware into his current form when he was captured and forced to connect the new Helix with the old one. In the flashback, he was an ally of Ben Tennyson and was very loyal to Azmuth as he called him "First Thinker" and even fought for him when Malware approached.

At some point after, Albedo asked Azmuth for an Omnitrix for himself, as he didn't trust "a mere human", though his request was denied, as Azmuth stated that there could be only one Omnitrix in the universe. Azmuth later fired him, though Albedo claims he quit.[2] Albedo then used his knowledge of the project to build a copy, and set it to match Ben's. However, when doing so, he didn't know that Ben's DNA would become the default, causing him to become permanently stuck as an exact clone of Ben.

Alien Force[]

GCBC (513)

Omnitrix Bio-Feedback

Disgusted by what had happened to him, Albedo traveled to Earth to get the Omnitrix from Ben in Good Copy, Bad Copy, planning on using it to restore his original form.

During his search for Ben, in at least three days, he savagely attacked at least three Forever Knight castles and a DNAlien hive, for the purpose of interrogation to discover Ben's whereabouts, causing the Knights to believe Ben Tennyson was attacking them for no reason and attracting Gwen's and Kevin's attention. When Albedo and Ben eventually met during Albedo's siege at another castle, Albedo pretended to be the creator of the Omnitrix, accusing Azmuth of being a liar, and asked Ben to hand it over. When Ben became suspicious and refused (after Kevin made him notice the twitch on his left eye each time he lied, which Ben has as well), Albedo transformed and attacked him in order to take his Omnitrix by force. After battling him twice, their Omnitrixes locked on with each other, almost causing feedback that could have destroyed the whole galaxy. During the process, Albedo's human form was damaged, resulting in him becoming a negative mirror of Ben. Azmuth then arrived and took off Albedo's Omnitrix's core, trapping him in his human form and sending him to an alien prison. Blaming Azmuth and Ben for his condition, Albedo swore to get revenge on them.

TFB1 (39)

Albedo with the Ultimatrix

In The Final Battle, Albedo escaped from prison with the help of Vilgax, and stole the Ultimatrix, an incomplete model of the Omnitrix, from Azmuth. Using pieces from his broken Omnitrix, he successfully completed the Ultimatrix and tried to use it in order to transform back to his Galvan form. However, the Ultimatrix was still linked to Ben's Omnitrix, leaving him trapped in his form. Vilgax then offered him an alliance, promising he would let him get Ben's Omnitrix. Though not really trusting him, Albedo accepted and helped him by kidnapping Gwen and Kevin. Despite the alliance being a success, Vilgax quickly double-crossed Albedo and made him his prisoner, using an army of thousands of Humungousaurs against him which defeated Albedo. After the Omnitrix was destroyed, Ben freed Albedo and forced him to hand over the Ultimatrix by triggering the self-destruct command. Though the ship then crashed into one of Earth's oceans, Albedo had escaped.

Ultimate Alien[]

When Kevin and Gwen put in the Ultimatrix Security keys for Alien X's transformation in The Forge of Creation, Ben stated they did it so Albedo wouldn't get access to it if he took the Ultimatrix back or if there was a duplicate or otherwise, something similar in sync to it.

DoN (292)

Albedo with his actors

Albedo returned in Double or Nothing; ever since Vilgax's ship blew up, Albedo was "broke and stranded" and had created his own live action show, 'Ben 10: Live', where Albedo played the role of Ben, and three of Ben's top most popular aliens, Swampfire, Humungousaur, and Big Chill, are played by three actors with fake Ultimatrix symbols: A Methanosian named Swamps, a Vaxasaurian named Hugh, and a Necrofriggian named Fridge.

After Albedo set a soundwave-bomb on the ground, Ben told Kevin and Gwen to 'deal with the bomb', while he went after Albedo. Albedo supposedly 'turned into' aliens, which were really just the real aliens replacing him before Ben saw the switch. When Ben battled all three of them, he told them that he knew they weren't Albedo. After talking to Albedo, telling him to never again do Ben 10: Live, Albedo stated that he wouldn't.

They were about to leave, but Hugh arrived and lied to the team, saying Albedo was making a doomsday bomb that would make everyone on Earth into a copy of Ben. They went to stop him at an old warehouse and saw Albedo wearing a large Omnitrix symbol on his chest, which Hugh said was going to protect him from the blast. Gwen questioned why Albedo would wear it if he already looked like Ben, but Ben cut her off and used NRG to blow a hole in the wall.

Albedo then yelled at the other aliens to keep them away. NRG defeated Swamps, and Gwen and Kevin defeated Fridge. Then, Hugh tried to defeat NRG, feigning he was on Albedo's side. Ultimate Spidermonkey went after Albedo, only to be reverted by the field surrounding Albedo. In their human forms, Albedo overpowered Ben and tried to worked on the "bomb", only for Ben to interfere again and cause the whole theater to suddenly blow up.

Albedo transformed back into his Galvan form, revealing that the machine wasn't a doomsday bomb, but rather a device to return him to a Galvan as well as making him able to alter his DNA at will, which he was able to afford to build with his performances. Restored to his Galvan form, he told Ben, who was expecting a fight with Albedo's new powers, there was no point in continuing their feud anymore, planning to get off Earth and never encounter Ben ever again. Unfortunately, he transformed back into Ben and found out, due to the Ultimatrix interrupting the device's alteration field, he would inevitably turn back into his human form.

DoN (446)

Albedo's Galvan form (Ultimate Alien)

Hugh tried to take the blame and explained why he sabotaged Albedo's plan, but Albedo didn't blame him and instead furiously blamed Ben. Albedo then transformed into Negative Rath, and battled Echo Echo. When Negative Rath pinned Echo Echo down, Echo Echo went Ultimate Echo Echo and sent sound wave discs at Negative Rath. This caused Negative Rath to transform back to human and faint. Ben relinquished Albedo to the alien trio, but warned he wouldn't be happy when he woke up.

NotLN (494

Albedo's nightmare

Albedo returned in Night of the Living Nightmare, where he attempted to infect Ben with a Cassiopeian Dream Eater, trapping him into a dream world where he kept being attacked by several of his enemies. Eventually, when Albedo entered the dream posing as Kevin and Gwen in an attempt to take the Ultimatrix, Ben figured out it was him from his friends stating he didn't deserve to bear the Ultimatrix and pursued him to Mr. Smoothy's.

As Ben started taking over the dream world and overpowered Negative Big Chill and NRG in human form, Albedo attempted to put back the Dream Eater, only to slip on a spilled smoothie and accidentally end up being the one infected. In the real world, it was revealed that Ben was never infected with the nightmare-inducing parasite. Albedo attempted to, but was dangerously unprepared for how messy Ben's room was, which resulted in him dropping the bug on his own face when he inadvertently slipped on a spilled smoothie, thus replaying the same thing that happened in Albedo's nightmare. While they called a Galvan doctor in order to properly remove the Dream Eater, Albedo was seen inside the dream world, being confronted by a group of the Ultimatrix aliens and fearfully begged them to not to hurt him as they came near. After getting it removed, he was imprisoned in the Plumbers HQ holding cells.

Omniverse[]

TUH (480)

Albedo with the new Ultimatrix

Albedo reappeared in the present day in The Ultimate Heist. In it, he had been impersonating Ben for several days, after he and Khyber secretly switched his and Ben's places. Albedo did not use his alien transformations, due to the fact that the red eyes would give him away to Ben's allies. Even though his ruse was discovered and Ben escaped, Albedo managed to get what he needed from Inspector 13. The devices that he took would not only stabilize his transformations, allowing him to remain in them for as long as he wants, but allow him to once again access the Ultimate Forms, including his own, Ultimate Albedo.

In A Fistful of Brains, Albedo tricked Ben into entering Khyber's disguised ship, capturing him and taking him to Khyber's private hunting area. Beforehand, Albedo had left toenail clippings and hair on several planets, in order to fool anyone who tried tracking Ben by his DNA.

Ultimate Albedo talking(2)

Albedo in his Ultimate form

Ben managed to escape Khyber and confronted Albedo. When Ben pointed out that Albedo had what he wanted, which was the power to return to his true Galvan form, Albedo informed him that he wanted revenge for his humiliation and imprisonment. Ben managed to overcome Ultimate Albedo, only for Ultimate Albedo to declare that Ben hadn't really won. Khyber then revealed that he had captured Azmuth.

In For a Few Brains More, Ultimate Albedo intended to use the device he imprisoned Azmuth in, a Cerebral Vortex, to drain Azmuth's intellect, and add it to his brainpower. Despite managing to drain Azmuth's intelligence into an orb form, Ben and company managed to free Azmuth and his intellect; however, after a lengthy battle, which culminated on Earth, Ultimate Albedo managed to escape to Billions Tower, and used its lab to construct another Cerebral Vortex and added Azmuth's intellect to his own, easily subduing them. However, the combined brainpower led to Ultimate Albedo having an epiphany, realizing that destroying them was worthless, as they would still exist somewhere in the omniverse. This distraction allowed Ben to reverse the procedure, taking away Ultimate Albedo's stolen brainpower.

FaFBM (714)

Negative Ultimate Spidermonkey defeated by Atomix

Angered, Ultimate Albedo transformed into Negative Ultimate Humungousaur and began attacking Ben as Bloxx, and pummeling him until he transformed back into normal and Azmuth hit the dial, transforming Ben into a new alien, Atomix, who was easily able to beat Negative Ultimate Humungousaur and Negative Ultimate Spidermonkey. After having his intellect restored, Azmuth punished Albedo by reconfiguring his Ultimatrix to not only keep him as a clone of Ben, but as a clone of the 11-year-old Ben Tennyson. Mortified at this, Albedo cried.

ATTWN (297)

Albedo with the evil Bens

Albedo returned in And Then There Were None, in which he and several other evil Bens joined forces with Vilgax and Eon to wipe out every good Ben from the multiverse. However, he, along with the other evil Bens, was double-crossed by Vilgax and were erased from spacetime by a Chronosapien Time Bomb.

In And Then There Was Ben, he was brought back into existence by No Watch Ben. Later, he chased an Omnitrixless Ben Tennyson as Negative Ultimate Echo Echo along with Mad Ben and Bad Ben's Buzzshock. At the end of the episode, he was sent back to the Prime Timeline by Clockwork.

In Malgax Attacks, Albedo and Vilgax infiltrated the Galvan Museum to steal Malware's remains. While Vilgax fought Ben, Albedo attempted to obtain the secrets of Azmuth only to be stopped by Luhley, Blukic, Driba, and Azmuth himself. He used Ultimate Rath to finish them all off until Azmuth disabled the Ultimatrix. Albedo was then sentenced to clean-up for the next "30 Galvan solar cycles", in which he demanded sunblock.

Powers and Abilities[]

"The Genetic Alteration Field worked, in spite of your meddling. I don't need an Ultimatrix anymore."
"Dude you're cured, that's great!"
"More than cured. Now I can alter my DNA at will."

– Albedo and Ben.[1]

Albedo is highly intelligent, being "very smart even for a Galvan",[DM 2] and has a large amount of knowledge about the Omnitrix, having been Azmuth's assistant. He was able to create a copy of the Omnitrix that, despite the mishap of turning him into a clone of Ben, worked perfectly, as well as successfully complete the Ultimatrix by integrating its energy core on his modified former Omnitrix's band. Albedo created the evolutionary function in the Ultimatrix. Technically speaking, he is smarter than Dr. Psychobos.[DJW 1]

Albedo is a very good fighter,[merch 1] as he could easily defeat Gwen and Kevin with just Swampfire and Diamondhead respectively. Albedo was able to easily overwhelm Ben in a hand-to-hand fight while both were human.[1] He was even able to knock Ben out for a short time. He was also able to take down hundreds of Vilgax's Humungousaur clones with using only Ultimate Humungousaur.

Thanks to a modification that Albedo made to himself through a DNA altering machine, Albedo can alter his DNA at will and change into any species without the need for an Omnitrix. As intended, Albedo also regained access to his true Galvan form as a plus. However, because Ben had interfered, whenever he changes into an alien form, he will always revert to his "Ben" form. Albedo uses a new Ultimatrix to help stabilize this power in Omniverse.

Equipment[]

Albedo originally had an Omnitrix he had built himself, giving him access to all of Ben's unlocked alien forms. However, his Omnitrix was of low quality and only worked by syncing data from Ben's Omnitrix, inadvertently causing him to assume Ben's form as it was the default. This Omnitrix was destroyed by Azmuth at the end of Good Copy, Bad Copy.

In The Final Battle, Albedo used the Ultimatrix, a new version of the Omnitrix semi-completed by Azmuth and modified by himself. Unfortunately, at the time it was connected to the same database as the Omnitrix, meaning Ben was still the default unless he could reset the Ultimatrix through the Omnitrix. The Ultimatrix was later taken from him by Ben.

In Omniverse, Albedo creates a new Ultimatrix but it is eventually disabled and confiscated by Azmuth.

Weaknesses[]

In almost all of his appearances, Albedo's own arrogance is often the source of his downfall and he always underestimates the intelligence and skill of those that oppose him, specifically Azmuth and Ben. His obsession and desire to get revenge on them can also lead him into getting into situations that end in his defeat and make him overlook the potential of others, such as when he all but completely ignored Blukic and Driba (due to their bumbling antics) while they successfully restored Azmuth after he had been destroyed by Albedo.

He has developed an uncontrollable craving for Chili Fries. This at times gets the better of him, such as side tracking him during or in-between his plans to pick some up. Another case is that he also has a hard time controlling himself eating them when he hasn't eaten any for a long period of time; when he is given some if this happens, he loses his self-control and eats them in a rather messy manner.

He needs his Ultimatrix (which is a stabilizer) in order maintain his transformations and to turn into Ultimate Forms. Without it, he turns back into a human.

Despite his enhanced intelligence he doesn't judge people properly, seeing how he teamed up with Vilgax thrice despite being betrayed by him on two occasions.

Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks[]

Albedo VA 33445566

Albedo in Vilgax Attacks

Albedo appears as a boss on MorOtesi tricking Cooper into making an energy core from Taydenite. All of his aliens' eyes and Omnitrix symbol are red. After defeating him in his Humungousaur form (when he has no health left), instead of simply falling over, he'll appear to be selecting another alien form to use, something that he doesn't do (even if the player doesn't hit him at this point). When battling him, he always seems to exclude one move out of his alien's movesets.

The player can mirror-match him by using the same alien form he does and revert back to Ben when he reverts if they so desire, but doing so is not strategically worthwhile, especially in the DS version as he always attacks Ben after taking a hit, which can result in a war of attrition where less skilled players are guaranteed to take damage, if not outright lose. The player will also not have access to every alien form either except via entering a password on consoles or a rematch on DS.

In the DS version, after he is defeated, he attempts to use Alien X, but gets locked in an argument with Serena and Bellicus. After the game is beaten, there is a post-credits cutscene where he is attempting to leave Alien X while Bellicus and Serena bring up an old argument. Once he is beaten on Hero Mode, he becomes an alternate skin in the DS version of the game, though his attacks have a weaker damage output than Ben and he takes twice the damage Ben normally does from enemy and boss attacks.

Aliens Used[]

FusionFall[]

Albedo has a green Omnitrix instead of a red Omnitrix. He is also one of the few non-fusion bosses. Defeating him gives the player a Rath Nano.

Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction[]

Evil Way Big came to Earth, in a cosmic storm which he had created, to destroy the Earth and Ben Tennyson. He blew up the Plumber Ships Ben sent to investigate the cosmic storm and a planet close to Earth's solar system with a cosmic ray. Psyphon appeared and lamented that humans may have discovered the primitive bacteria on the planet had Evil Way Big not destroyed it. Both of them then got into a brief argument on whether Pluto was a planet or not, with Evil Way Big supporting the latter viewpoint.

Later on, Evil Way Big arrived on Earth and attacked Tokyo, threatening Ben to bring the Potis Altiare to him or Earth will be destroyed. As Ben transformed into Humungousaur, Evil Way Big grabbed his tail, spun him and then flung him into a nearby lake. Ben reverted to his human form and the Potis Altiare connected to the Ultimatrix. Ben then transformed into Way Big, defeated Evil Way Big and blasted him to the moon with a cosmic ray.

Soon after, Jimmy Jones informed Ben that the new trailer for the new Sumo Slammers movie Sumo Slammers 2: Electric Slammeroo just hit the net and he was going to send him a link. Ben apologized for suspecting Jimmy to be spying on him and revealed that he was monitoring the Evil Way Big he just threw into space and he found that the Evil Way Big landed on the moon and disappeared.

It is then revealed that Evil Way Big is actually Albedo transformed into a To'kustar, explaining his and Psyphon's knowledge of the Potis Altiare which Azmuth stated was only known to the Galvin. He had a small device in his left hand which resembled a lightbulb connected to a broken pipe thing, which he threw to the ground. Albedo then stood up facing the Earth, cursing Ben in rage for wasting all the time he spent in the cosmic storm acquiring the small piece of To'kustar DNA after Ben destroyed the Omnitrix. He then laments now being stuck on the moon in Ben's human form and with no chili fries before being faced with Lu wanting payback for destroying the top part of his nearby moon base while he was Evil Way Big, where he is heard being attacked offscreen.

Etymology[]

Albedo was named after the reflectivity of a celestial body.[DM 3] Albedo is a "reflection" of Ben.

Trivia[]

  • Albedo's existence was first hinted by Dwayne McDuffie on September 8, 2008, when asked if there would be a villain with an Omnitrix in the series.[DM 4]
  • When Albedo was working for Azmuth in creating the Omnitrix, he worked on the Omnitrix's software package.[DM 5]
  • Just like Ben, Albedo likes chili fries, but not because of Ben's DNA. Albedo is just blaming it on Ben.[DM 2]
    • Albedo likes smoothies too, but he can control himself around those.[DJW 2]
  • Albedo is not albino. He just has white hair.[DM 6]
  • Albedo hates Azmuth more than he hates Ben.[citation needed]
  • Albedo considers his 11-year-old human form to be a lot worse than his 15-16-year-old form.[2]
  • When Albedo lies, his left eye twitches, just like Ben's.[4]
  • Albedo's regular transformations were credited with the "Negative" prefix in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. This is no longer the case in Omniverse, with Derrick J. Wyatt being unaware that Albedo's aliens were credited as such until 2020.[DJW 3]
  • Albedo cannot transform into Feedback[DJW 4] because Feedback's DNA was not available when Albedo received the ability to transform into any species in Double or Nothing.[DJW 5] He is known to have had at least all the aliens Ben did at the point of The Final Battle.
    • Due to him transforming without the need of an Omnitrix, Albedo is not able to add more aliens to his roster. Therefore, he does not have some of Ben's more recently added DNA samples such as Walkatrout, Pesky Dust, Mole-Stache, The Worst, Kickin Hawk, and Whampire.[DJW 6][DJW 7]
    • However, Derrick later admitted that his statement of Albedo only having every alien available to Ben prior to Double or Nothing does not work because of Negative Gravattack. He also admitted that he was not sure which aliens Albedo has,[DJW 8] and is unsure how Albedo would add more aliens to transform into.[DJW 7]
  • In 2020, Derrick made artwork of Negative Alien X,[DJW 9] Negative Ball Weevil,[DJW 10] Negative Walkatrout,[DJW 11] Negative Pesky Dust,[DJW 12] Negative Bullfrag,[DJW 13] Negative Atomix,[DJW 14] and Negative Alien Z.[DJW 15] However, as none of these aliens were available in the original Ultimatrix during Double or Nothing, it is unlikely that Albedo can officially transform into them.
  • There is an alternate timeline where Albedo turned into Negative Alien X and was stuck motionless for nearly a year.[7][8]
    • Albedo's Bellicus and Serena would be red and named Annikus and Kursika.[DJW 16]
  • Albedo's role in the Mad Timeline, Bad Timeline, Nega Timeline, Benzarro's Timeline, Dimension 23, and Gweniverse is unknown.[DJW 17]
  • Albedo's powers at the end of Double or Nothing are similar to Kevin's powers after he absorbed the Omnitrix for the first time.
  • Derrick doubted that Albedo will ever reform,[DJW 18] and that he will become "Albedo 10K" by Ben 10,000's time.[DJW 19]
  • Despite having his first canonical appearance in Ben 10: Omniverse, a design resembling a young version of Albedo can be seen as an alternative skin for Young Ben in the game Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion with the same general colors that would be used in Omniverse years later.
  • Various Albedo action figures erroneously depict him with a green Omnitrix or Ultimatrix. This error also appeared in Punch Time Explosion XL.
