Template:Infobox Devolved Alien

Cannonbolt is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Arburian Pelarota from the destroyed planet Arburia.


In the original series, Cannonbolt was a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural, yellow armor plating on his back, shoulders and the backs of his arms. He was mostly white with black on his upper half. Each hand of his possesses claws. He originally had sharp teeth. Cannonbolt wore the Omnitrix symbol on his forehead. His eyes were yellow.

In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, he now had full teeth and they were then human-like. He no longer had the black stripe on his chest that he did before. He wore the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest and his eyes were green.

In Omniverse, he looks similar to his appearance in Ben 10 Alien Force/Ultimate Alien, he wears the Omnitrix symbol on his chest and he has the black stripe from the original series going down to his belly/chest and his eyes are not connected to his shoulders. His palms are now flat instead of bulging. The yellow bolts on his body are now hexagonal and the plates on his back are three instead of two.

11-year old Cannonbolt resembles his old self but his eyes are green and not connected to his shoulders, the Omnitrix is recolored.

Ben 23's Cannonbolt's bolts are blue instead of yellow. His eyes and Omnitrix symbol are also blue, replacing Ben's green.

Sphere Form

When Cannonbolt turns into a sphere he rolls up into a ball with his back plates covering him. His side plates are the plates on his hand. His sphere form has half-circular lines across his body with black lines around the circular plates.

Powers and Abilities


Cannonbolt in sphere form

Cannonbolt's shell can withstand acids, lasers, lava and even a drop from space and the heat of re-entry without any harm to the inside of the ball.

Cannonbolt can roll into a ball like an armadillo or pill bug to encase itself in this plating. There is enough space within the shell while rolled up to protect and transport other fairly big things.

In Protector of Earth, Cannonbolt can spin around to make a small tornado, roll in a circle on the ground to damage enemies, blast down to make a large shockwave, flop face-down to make a smaller shockwave, compress himself in ball form, then letting go creating a large blast, and bounce off multiple enemies.

In Vilgax Attacks, Cannonbolt can bounce around to make several shockwaves.

When in the form of a rolled-up ball, Cannonbolt can increase his rotational momentum and roll into enemies as an attack, as well as ricocheting himself off of surfaces.


Cannonbolt is subjected to the physical laws of reflection and conservation of momentum, meaning that he has difficulty stopping or controlling its direction if it picks up speed. Also, if Cannonbolt is on a very sticky surface, he can't get up, as seen in Video Games.

Ben 10,000 Alternate Timeline

File:Future Cannonbolt.png

In an alternate timeline, Cannonbolt is nearly the same as the 10-year old version, but with a different color scheme for the legs, which sport a black pants-like design similar to the one for Four Arms. He also has longer claws.

His eyes are closer to his shoulder armor and the Omnitrix symbol is higher up, being on the top of his head, rather than his forehead.
