Trivia

  • Unlike previous iterations of Ben 10:
    • This series' episodes have a run-time of 11 minutes each. All previous Ben 10 iterations had episodes with run-times of 22 minutes each. This decision was done by Cartoon Network so they can mix and match episodes. It also works better for comedy.[DR 1]
      • Episodes which are 22 minutes in production are broken into two segments.
      • However, Season 5 will consist of 4-part movie events instead of the normal 11-minute episodes.[DR 2][DR 3]
    • The look of the Omnitrix changes in every new season.
      • The out-of-universe reasons for the Omnitrix having a new appearance every season are to repurpose unused designs from pre-production, to differentiate one season from another, as well as for marketing purposes.[DR 4]
    • Ben is only able to have 10 aliens at a time.
      • The one time this rule was not kept (during the events of Omni-Tricked when Ben unlocked Gax), the Omnitrix began to glitch and freak out. Starting with Innervasion Part 5: High Override, aliens are now added and removed from rotation.
      • The crew has been been moving through the aliens they felt were at Ben's core because they are his favorite go to characters across the life of the entire show.[DR 5]
      • The addition and removal of certain aliens is also based on what type of stories they want to tell in the new season, then which aliens would work best with those stories and which would not.[DR 6]
      • When asked why Four Arms, Humungousaur and Rath, three aliens with enhanced strength as a main ability, are all in Ben's roster starting with Season 3, Duncan Rouleau stated that their working philosophy isn't about the perfect well-rounded team as much as working with what you got. Until Ben has mastery over the Omnitrix, he'll get all sorts of odd, sometimes lopsided, lineups.[DR 7]
      • The crew like to keep the title of 10 being consistent.[DR 8]
  • When asked to describe Season 5 in one word, Duncan Rouleau said "celestial".[DR 9]
    • Season 5 will also have guest stars as voice actors.[DR 10]
  • Alien X,[DR 11] Bloxx, and The Worst[DR 12] have been considered to appear in future seasons of the reboot.
  • This is the second Cartoon Network reboot series after The Powerpuff Girls (2016).
  • Duncan Rouleau has occasionally brought up the possibility of a new iteration of Ben 10 starting with some new angle,[DR 24] saying that there is always a chance it could happen.[DR 25] They are developing many options; the changing fields of platforms from cable to streaming, the consolidation of Warner Bros. franchises, and a "thousand other factors" will determine where, how and when Ben’s next iteration will finally settle.[DR 26] There may be an older Ben show at some point, but no time soon.[DR 27]
