Clockwork is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Chronosapien from an unknown planet.


In Ultimate Alien, Clockwork is a robot-like alien with skin that is made of copper, with black stripes and a transparent piece of green circular glass on his chest, revealing gears inside of him.

In Omniverse, 16 year old Clockwork has a larger body and holes on the protrusion on his head. His head is also restructured a little. The piece of glass is now in the shape of a hexagon instead of a circle. On his back, he has a black stripe that splits into two stripes with a keyhole between them.

11 year old Ben's Clockwork has a thinner and rounder head, a white and black shirt, and a smiley face, but unlike the 16 year old self, his piece of glass is once again in the shape of a circle, instead of a hexagon.

Clockwork wears the Ultimatrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

Because he is as a technological being, it is possible for a Galvanic Mechamorph to merge with him, enhancing his abilities. When fused he gains stronger time rays, the ability to morph his hands into drills, and shoulder mounted rocket launchers.


As seen in Bengeance is Mine, Clockwork can slow down time around himself, making it look like to others that Clockwork is walking at very high speeds.

As seen in The Eggman Cometh and in The Beginning of the End, by rotating the winch on his head, Clockwork can create a projection of what happened in the past.


According to Ben 10,000, Clockwork can travel through time.


As seen in Catch a Falling Star, Clockwork can fire green time rays from his hands or chest which can send people back in time or age an object/person to dust.


Clockwork can also send people back to their own timeline/dimension.

Unconscious Clockwork

Clockwork is not very durable, as Overlord's glove's laser beam could break Clockwork's arm and make him shut down. When Clockwork changed back to Ben from this state, Ben's arm was broken.

When one of Vilgax's Squid Monsters struck Clockwork on the gear on his head, he was badly stunned.

Because of his large body, Clockwork is quite slow and low on stamina. Therefore, he tires out quickly.

Time has no effect on gumballs (as seen in Paradox) and diamond (as seen in Ben 10,000 Returns), so Clockwork's time rays are virtually useless on those items. 

The use of his powers create a ripple effect in time which can be reversed by another Chronosapien or in the case of Ben can be sensed by his alternate counterpart, Eon.

  • Clockwork makes gear sounds when he moves, which is similar to Armodrillo when he moves his arms.
    • In Omniverse, Clockwork ticks like a clock for the entirety of his transformation, and his time rays make a sound similar to the tolling of Big Ben when they strike their target. This sound also occurs when Clockwork is struck on his rotor.
  • Clockwork's torso looks somewhat like Azmuth's armor in Secret of the Omnitrix.
  • The way Clockwork slows down time to dodge objects and seem to be running to others is the same way Ying from the Malaysian cartoon Boboiboy does it, and the way the characters from the Kamen Rider series installment Kamen Rider Kabuto do it in a process called "Clock Up", although the Kabuto Riders' method is merely moving their bodies at the speed of light, rather than direct time-manipulation.
