Season 5 Opening Theme
In opening 1, 11 year old Wildmutt has two Omnitrix symbols. In opening 2, the wrong Omnitrix symbol disappears, but the wrong brace remains.
The flashbacks happened during weekend trips.[DJW 2]
Omniverse was hand drawn for the most part, with digital color. Some more complicated elements like the vehicles were animated using CGI.[DJW 3]
Omniverse had the most seasons out of every Ben 10 show that has aired so far, with a total of 8 compared to the 3 or 4 of the others.
Dwayne McDuffie and Glen Murakami had some thoughts about Omniverse when the crew sat down to plan the end of Ultimate Alien in September 2010. Dwayne had several pages generated in December 2010, but the real shape of the show came in April to May 2011.[MW 1]
The tone of Omniverse being closer to that of the original series was an executive mandate due to the fact that, globally, the original series apparently does the best ratings-wise.[DJW 4]
New sound effects were added to the opening starting with Ben Again. These include the Omnitrix's activation sound and Upchuck, Crashhopper, and Rath's sounds.
