|“||And anyway, I don't call him "Benwolf" anymore. His name is... Blitz...wolfer!||”|
Blitzwolfer's appearance is based on a werewolf.
In the original series, Blitzwolfer had grey fur, a long flowing mane, and a large bushy tail with three sharp claws on each hand and foot, and the inside of his mouth was green. He has spiked elbows and shoulders and wore a white jumpsuit with black stripes and the original Omnitrix symbol on his lower stomach.
During the events of Benwolf, however, Ben was slowly transforming into Blitzwolfer. During the first stage, Blitzwolfer mostly resembled Ben but with bushy sideburns, sharp claws on his feet and hands, sharp teeth, longer hair, and grey skin. The original Omnitrix symbol was worn on his left arm, much like when Ben is in human form.
During the second stage, Blitzwolfer's face started to appear more wolf-like. His nose became more noticeable with light grey fur surrounding his nose and mouth, and dark grey fur on areas of his face where the light grey wasn't. His eyes also went full green and his ears became pointed and pointing upward. He also gained height and muscle, and his arms and legs resembled his fully transformed form.
During the third and final stage, Blitzwolfer resembled his fully transformed form but had Ben's clothing. By this stage, the original Omnitrix symbol had vanished from his left arm.
In Ultimate Alien, Blitzwolfer looked the same as before except his mane and tail were recolored black, he had lighter skin, and his mouth was colored white on the outside and red on the inside. He retained the same black and white jumpsuit from the original series and wore the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.
In Omniverse, 16-year-old Blitzwolfer has a green suit, collar and green wristbands. He now has four claws instead of three, as well as a green tongue and a white belt. His Omnitrix symbol is located on the collar above his fur.
11-year-old Blitzwolfer in Omniverse looks almost the same as his 16-year-old self, except his suit and collar are white with black stripes and his wristbands are black.
Powers and Abilities
Blitzwolfer can emit a powerful green ultrasonic howl by opening his quadra-hinged muzzle that can either reflect incoming projectiles or propel himself upward like a rocket booster. His sonic howls are powerful enough to damage Petrosapiens, which was demonstrated by Kevin 11,000. They also exceed the screaming capabilities of Sonorosians.[DR 1]
Blitzwolfer has enhanced senses of smelling and hearing, giving him great tracking and detection abilities.
Blitzwolfer has a durability limit, as he got a headache after crashing into a tree.
- Blitzwolfer first appeared in Benwolf, where he was added to the active playlist after the Omnitrix "sampled" the Werewolf's DNA.[note 1] However, Ben slowly transformed because the Werewolf's scratch left the Omnitrix stuck between Active and Capture Modes. Blitzwolfer pursued the Werewolf and eventually reverted after he saved Grandpa Max and Wes from a lava flow.
- In An American Benwolf in London, Blitzwolfer battled the Forever Ninja and saved Kai from falling off of Big Ben.
- In Catfight, Blitzwolfer chased after Nyancy Chan until a fleet of Incursean and Tetramand warships appeared.
- In Secret of Dos Santos, Blitzwolfer defeated a Jungle Guardian with Skurd's help and accidentally found the Temple of the Sky in the process.
- In A New Dawn, Blitzwolfer appeared for a short time when Ben was cycling through his aliens.
- In Pleasant Dreams, Blitzwolfer attacked Gwen while sleepwalking.
- In Special Defects, Blitzwolfer defeated Dirk and his vampire animatronic.

His placeholder name, Benwolf, is a combination of the words "Ben" and "wolf". It is an allusion to Beowulf.
"Blitzwolfer" is also a reference to both his werewolf-like form and his sonic howl's capability to blitz through its targets.
- Ben originally called his Loboan form "Benwolf" because he thought the transformation was permanent.
- Consequently, this makes Blitzwolfer one of the four aliens whose working name had Ben's name in it; the other three being Snare-oh, Frankenstrike, and Nanomech.
- Benwolf was eventually renamed "Blitzwolfer" to avoid embarrassment after Kai asked him if the alien was still called "Benwolf".
- Derrick J. Wyatt came up with the working name Blitzwolfer, and it ended up being used as no one else came up with a better name.[DJW 4]
- In the original series, Blitzwolfer's tongue retracted and stowed itself away when his muzzle split.[TP 1] This is changed in Omniverse, as his tongue stays in place and is split in half.
- Nyancy Chan and her cats are afraid of Blitzwolfer.
- Kai is fond of Blitzwolfer and thinks he is cute in a pet-like way.
- Blitzwolfer's Omniverse appearance was designed by Steven Choi.[DJW 5]
- From Arc 4 of Omniverse onwards, 16-year-old Blitzwolfer replaces Humungousaur in the opening intro of the show, particularly in the part where the latter used to appear alongside Echo Echo, Bloxx, Shocksquatch, NRG, Crashhopper, Gravattack, and 16-year-old Ben at the end.
- In a former FusionFall Halloween event, Dracula sold the outfits of Blitzwolfer along with Snare-oh and Frankenstrike.
- 11-year-old Blitzwolfer was not necessarily planned to appear in Omniverse flashbacks.[DJW 6]
