In Other Media[]


This series occasionally spoofed Ben 10, although only made two dedicated episode segments doing so:

  • The first was Ben 10 Franklin, in which Benjamin Franklin's famous kite experiment gifts him an Omnitrix, and allows him to have mischievous adventures as different aliens across the young America.
  • The second was a Cowboys and Aliens parody. In Cowboys and Alien Force, Jake Lonergan wakes up in an old western town with a mysteriously ever-increasing collection of bracelets and armwear, the first of which is an Omnitrix he seemingly stole from Jedediah Benjamin Tennyson, a kid that he also knocked out and stole clothes from. Jake uses the Omnitrix to turn into Chromastone and crush a cowboy criticizing him. The rest of the skit doesn't involve Ben 10.

Other references to the franchise can be found in Season 1. In Episode 4: Star Bleech, a nondescript clip of Alien Force is briefly on TV; and in Episode 6: Batman Family Feud, one of the shows on a TV guide is named "Ben 80: The Golden Years".

In the South Park episode You're Getting Old, Cartman's mother entioned that Cartman gets upset when he doesn't get a present every time someone else gets a present at a party. One of the presents Cartman gets is a "Ben 10 Wrist Rocket."
