Fasttrack is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Citrakayah from the planet Chalybeas.

Appearance

Ben as Fasttrack

Fasttrack is a feline-like alien with a black suit-like color scheme, and his hands, legs, chest, and part of his head are colored blue. Similar to Water Hazard, Fasttrack has spike-like blades on his arms and legs, and black mask-like fins around his green eyes, as well as a triangle-shaped nose, a thunderbolt-like design down his chest, and a triangle one down his back.

Fasttrack wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Albedo as Negative Fasttrack

Negative Fasttrack looks just like Ben's Fasttrack, but has red eyes and lacks the Ultimatrix symbol.

Powers and Abilities

  • Enhanced Speed
  • Acceleration
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Dexterity
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Enhanced Recovery
  • Enhanced Reflexes
  • Enhanced Jumping
  • Quick-Succession Attacks

Much like XLR8, Fasttrack has enhanced speed and agility, and is shown to have enhanced reflexes as well.

Fasttrack is capable of giving himself a boost of speed while running; this is demonstrated when Dr. Animo's missile flew past him, and Fasttrack ran at a higher speed, allowing him to outrun it for a short time and forcing Animo to increase the missile's power.[1] Furthermore, Fasttrack can also jump to great heights while running.[2]

Fasttrack is durable enough to withstand being thrown against the Seal,[3] as well as an explosion caused by the Door to Anywhere (although he was still knocked out).[4] The former of these feats also reveals that he can recover quickly, as he was able to immediately get back on his feet and continue running when he saw that Sir George was about to attack him again.[3] Similarly, Fasttrack was able to recover from falling to the ground after he jumped towards Animo's missile but failed to catch it.[1]

Fasttrack possesses enhanced strength, as he was able to carry both Magister Hulka and Tack to safety without losing any speed.[5] Technically speaking, Fasttrack is physically stronger than Kinecelerans.[MW 1]

Fasttrack has enhanced dexterity, as seen when he disarmed a group of Forever Knights by taking their weapons away and was able to carry them all in his hands before dropping them on the floor.[6]

Although he has never trained himself to do so, the sharp blade-like structures on Fasttrack's arms and legs could be used as weapons to cut and tear when running past someone or something at a fast pace.

Weaknesses

  • Speed Limit
  • Slippery Surfaces
  • Exploitable Speed

There is a limit to how fast Fasttrack can run, as he can have a hard time stopping if he runs too quickly.[1]

It is implied that, despite his enhanced speed, Fasttrack is physically slower than Kinecelerans.[7][3]

Being a speed-based alien, Fasttrack shares similar weaknesses with XLR8, such as his speed being used to an opponent's advantage (as seen when Fasttrack ran straight into Sir George's outstretched arm, badly stunning him),[3] as well as being unable to run on certain surfaces like ice, which can make Fasttrack slip very easily.[1]

Being a feline-based alien, Fasttrack can be controlled by people who have the ability to control cats, like Nyancy Chan, depending on how prevalent his feline attributes are.[DJW 1]

Etymology

Fasttrack's name is a combination of the words "fast" and "track", referencing his enhanced speed, as well as the sport track and field.

Also, "Fast track" is an informal phrase meaning "the quickest and most direct route to achievement of a goal", as in competing for professional advancement.

Trivia

  • Although Fasttrack did not appear in Omniverse, he was mentioned in Have I Got a Deal for You, The Ultimate Heist, and Breakpoint.
  • Fasttrack is the only alien introduced in Ultimate Alien to have been unlocked offscreen.
  • Fasttrack's voice sounds similar to Spidermonkey's.
  • Derrick J. Wyatt thinks of Fasttrack as the lamest and most boring alien possible because he is so redundant and too similar to XLR8. He also states that Fasttrack is so much less interesting with a much more generic human design and that being a fan of him is like "being a fan of watching paint dry".[DJW 2][DJW 3]
  • In the credits of A Knight to Remember and Solitary Alignment, Fasttrack's name is misspelled as "Fastrack".
  • Fasttrack's name was first revealed in a Ben 10: Galactic Racing press release and confirmed by writer Peter David, who revealed the name of Fasttrack's species and home planet as well.[PD 1]
  • The reason why Fasttrack was absent in Omniverse was because the crew was unable to figure out how to make him more interesting compared to what was shown in Ultimate Alien.[DJW 4]
    • If Derrick J. Wyatt was given the chance, he would have recolored Fasttrack yellow and given him a green uniform and webbed toes to make him look more unique.[DJW 5][DJW 6]
    • Another take by Wyatt featured Fasttrack with wheeled feet, inspired by the Wheelers from Return to Oz. Ultimately, it was rejected because the design was even more similar to XLR8's.[DJW 7]
  • Fasttrack's design is a combination of several iconic comic book characters, specifically that of the color schemes of DC Comics superheroes Nightwing and Jaime Reyes as Blue Beetle.
    • Fasttrack's overall body shape (notably the spikes and feet) bears a striking resemblance to Terry McGinnis as Batman.
    • Fasttrack's face is modeled after the mask commonly worn by Wolverine from Marvel Comics.
    • The way Fasttrack runs while using his enhanced speed is reminiscent of the Flash.

    • Both are valid, it's just that chalybeate is derived from Chalybes and that from the Greek word χάλυψ, which means "tempered ir...
    • So I guess Chalybes would be better even though they're both valid?
