Music[]

Theme Song[]

Main Article: Theme Song (Reboot) The openings of seasons 1-4 showed all 10 of Ben's current aliens posing next to a number. At the end of each opening, Team Tennyson does some sort of interaction.

Ben 10,010[]

The opening showed the majority of Ben's enemies, along with his current aliens at the time.

Ben Gen 10[]

The opening showed Team Tennyson traveling around the world in the Rustbucket, while Ben cycles through all of his aliens.

Alien X-Tinction[]

The opening showed Ben showcasing all 10 of his current aliens, aside Max and Gwen. Towards the end, the silhouettes of Original Series Ben, Alien Force Ben, Ultimate Alien Ben, and Omniverse Ben are shown in their respective series order.

Errors[]

  • In Season 1-4 intro, when Ben transforms into Four Arms, the core of Omnitrix doesn't pop up.
  • In Ben 10,010 intro, when Slapback switches to Humungousaur, Humungousaur only has one spike.

Songs[]

Trivia[]

  • The reboot is the longest running Ben 10 series, having produced 184 episodes and airing for 4.5 years (5 if counting the United Kingdom broadcast of the show).
    • It also features the longest season in the franchise, with Season 3 being comprised of 52 episodes, and the shortest season in the franchise, with Season 5 being comprised only of 3 specials.
  • This series' episodes have a run-time of 11 minutes, instead of 22 minutes that the previous iterations of Ben 10 had.
    • Episodes were 22 minutes long in production and each was broken into two segments.
    • This was done by Cartoon Network so they can mix and match episodes. It also worked better for comedy.[DR 1]
    • Season 5 consisted of 3 movie-length specials, each of them had a 44-minute runtime, which is the equivalent to 4 normal 11-minute episodes.
  • In this series, the Omnitrix changed its appearance every season, while this happened with each new series in the Classic continuity.
    • The out-of-universe reasons for the Omnitrix having a new appearance every season were to repurpose unused designs from pre-production, differentiate one season from another, and for marketing purposes.[DR 2]
  • In this reboot, Ben's roster of transformations is limited to 10, unlike previous iterations of the franchise.
    • Instead, starting with Innervasion Part 5: High Override, aliens are now added and removed from rotation during the course of the series.
    • This rule was broken during the events of Omni-Tricked when Ben unlocked Gax, because the Omnitrix began to glitch and freak out. It is also no longer followed as of Ben 10,010.[DR 3]
    • The crew moved 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 4] They also preferred to keep the title of '10' consistent.[DR 5]
    • The addition and removal of certain aliens was also based on what type of stories the crew wanted to tell with each new season, and which aliens would work best with those stories and which would not.[DR 6]
    • The working philosophy of the crew was not about a perfect well-rounded team as much as working with what you got. Until Ben has mastery over the Omnitrix, he would get all sorts of odd, sometimes lopsided, lineups.[DR 7]
  • Many aliens from previous series were initially considered to appear in the reboot at different points of development only to be excluded:
    • Wildmutt was excluded because the crew did not want him looking like anything other than a dog. Had he appeared on the show, he would have been more humanoid.[DR 8][DR 9]
    • Gravattack was considered too powerful for the earthbound villains on the show to fight.[DR 10]
    • The electric aliens from the previous shows did not make the cut because Shock Rock was created for plot purposes.[DR 11] Despite that, Buzzshock appeared in Ben 10,010 as one of Ben 10,000's aliens and Ampfibian appeared in Alien X-Tinction as one of Ultimate Alien Ben's aliens.
    • The Worst and Toolboxx were among the Omniverse aliens considered by the crew for the show.[DR 12]
  • Sometimes, ideas such as Forever Knight being sentient technology were left ambiguous in case Man of Action came up with a better idea later and wanted to change the direction.[KT 1]
  • Duncan described Season 5 as "celestial"[DR 13] and "large in scale" with having special guest stars as voice actors.[DR 14]
    • The premises for each special came when Cartoon Network executives Tramm Wigzell and Keith Fay asked Man of Action to "pitch [them] the craziest stories [they] could never do". Though they were credited only with "story" on these specials, Anthony J. Marchisello and Marcus Reinhart actually wrote full scripts for each special from the story pitches Man of Action provided.[STS 1]
  • Duncan is unsure of what the future of the franchise will hold following Alien X-Tinction,[DR 15] noting that changes at WarnerMedia have put things on pause.[DR 16] These include:
  • Duncan Rouleau has brought up the possibility of a new iteration of Ben 10 starting with a new angle,[DR 21] saying that there is always a chance it could happen.[DR 22]
    • The crew is 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 23]
    • There is a possibility of a show featuring an older Ben at some point. However, that will not be happening any time soon.[DR 24]
    • The crew is in talks with Cartoon Network.[DR 25] Announcements were planned sometime in late 2021,[DR 26] but Rouleau later rescinded this statement.[DR 27]
  • Before the official logo was revealed, the 2016 official Cartoon Network Calendar used the logo for Ben 10: Omniverse.
  • This is the second Cartoon Network reboot series after The Powerpuff Girls (2016).
  • Unlike the previous series, Playmates is now handling the toys instead of Bandai.
  • The show's soundtrack is composed by Kevin Manthei, who has previously composed music for Man of Action's two previous shows Generator Rex and Ultimate Spider-Man.
