This article is about the alien previously known as Benwolf. You might have been looking for Benwolf (Episode).

And anyway, I don't call him "Benwolf" anymore. His name is... Blitz...wolfer!

– Ben telling Kai about Blitzwolfer's new name.[2]

Blitzwolfer, formerly known as Benwolf[3] or Ben Wolf,[merch 1] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Loboan from Anur Transyl's moon, Luna Lobo, in the Anur System.[merch 1]


Blitzwolfer's appearance is based on a werewolf.

In the Original Series, Blitzwolfer had grey fur, three furry tendrils,[TP 1] 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, fanged canines, 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 tendrils 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 is more muscular than his original appearance. He now has four claws instead of three, a long flowing mane instead of furry tendrils, 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[]

By opening his quadra-lobed muzzle into four separate parts, Blitzwolfer can amplify his howling to create powerful, green, concussive blasts of sound.[merch 2] These sonic howls are powerful enough to damage Petrosapiens, which was demonstrated by Kevin 11,000,[4] and can also harm other Loboans.[1][DJW 1] They can be used to reflect incoming projectiles[2] or propel Blitzwolfer upward.[1]

Much like an ordinary wolf, Blitzwolfer has sharp fangs and formidable claws, the latter of which he used to scratch the Jungle Guardian.[5] He also has extraordinary night vision.[1][DJW 2]

Blitzwolfer possesses enhanced strength, as he was able to carry Gwen and Kai, and then Max and Wes without difficulty, as well as restrain the Werewolf.[1]

Blitzwolfer has enhanced durability, shown when he didn't sustain much damage after being knocked into a tree at a high speed.[5] Crüjo was also able to survive being shot by Rad's gatling gun.[6]

Blitzwolfer can jump exceptionally high, as he was able to leap up to the top of Nyancy Chan's huge ball of pink yarn while chasing her.[7]

Blitzwolfer has enhanced speed and reflexes, as seen when he fought the Red Knight on Big Ben.[2]

Blitzwolfer has enhanced senses of smelling[1] and hearing,[2] giving him great tracking and detection abilities.

Although the Omnitrix makes Blitzwolfer immune to the effects of Corrodium,[8] he is also naturally immune to it, as demonstrated by the Werewolf.[9]

Blitzwolfer is immune to lava, as demonstrated by the Werewolf.[1]

Blitzwolfer is able to scale walls, as demonstrated by the Werewolf.[1]

Blitzwolfer's feet are prehensile.[2]


AABiL (249)

Sensitive Hearing

Blitzwolfer cannot use his sonic howl if his muzzle is forced shut by something, such as Thep Khufans' bandages or a Plumbers' specialized mouth cover, as demonstrated by the Werewolf.[10]

Similar to most Earth canines, Blitzwolfer has sensitive hearing. Therefore, he cannot handle loud noises, such as that of giant bells.[2]

Blitzwolfer can be controlled and hypnotized by Vladats via their Corrupturas, as demonstrated with Scout, Crüjo, and many other Loboan residents of Anur Transyl.[11]

Blitzwolfer can be scared by Toepick's species.[DJW 3]


Ben 10[]

  • 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 Max and Wes from a lava flow.

"Blitzwolfer" is a rearrangement of the CNN newscaster Wolf Blitzer's name. Ben renamed the transformation after briefly seeing Wolf Blitzer on television.[2]


  • Ben originally called his Loboan form "Benwolf" because he thought the transformation was permanent.[1]
    • 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".[2]
    • 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]
  • Nyancy Chan and her cats are afraid of Blitzwolfer.[7]
  • Kai is fond of Blitzwolfer and thinks he is cute in a pet-like way.[2][5]
  • Kai has a photo of Blitzwolfer for Ben's number on her cell phone.[5]
  • Duncan Rouleau once stated that Blitzwolfer's sonic howls are more powerful than Echo Echo's sonic screams.[DR 1] He later did not recall making the original statement, elaborating that the answer to the question depends on what the story needs.[DR 2]
  • In the Original Series, Blitzwolfer's tongue retracted and stowed itself away when his muzzle split.[TP 2] This is changed in Omniverse, as his tongue stays in place and splits in half.[5]
  • Blitzwolfer's Original Series design was made by Thomas Perkins,[TP 3] while his Omniverse appearance was designed by Steven Choi.[DJW 5]
  • Despite appearing in the theme song, 11-year-old Blitzwolfer was not necessarily planned to appear in Omniverse flashbacks.[DJW 6]
  • In a former FusionFall Halloween event, Dracula sold the outfits of Blitzwolfer along with Snare-oh and Frankenstrike.


  1. 1.0 1.1 Originally, the Werewolf was the DNA source for Blitzwolfer.[pop-up 1][1] This was later changed, as Loboan DNA was said to have already been present in the Omnitrix. Ben just misunderstood what the device was doing when it "sampled" the Werewolf's DNA.[DM 1][DM 2]
