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. His hands, legs, chest and part of his head are colored blue. Similar to Water Hazard, Fasttrack has spikes on his hands and legs. He has black mask-like fins around his green eyes, as well as a triangle-shaped nose and a thunderbolt-like design down his chest.

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
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Jumping
  • Enhanced Reflexes
  • Speed-Enhanced Combat
  • Sharp Spikes

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

Fasttrack possesses enhanced strength, as he was able to carry both Magister Hulka and Tack without losing any speed.[1] Technically speaking, Fasttrack is physically stronger than XLR8.[MW 1]

Fasttrack is capable of jumping to great heights while running.[2]

Even though he has never trained himself to do so, the 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

  • Difficulty Stopping
  • Difficulty Stopping (cont.)

If he is running fast enough, Fasttrack can have a hard time stopping.[3]

Despite his enhanced speed, Fasttrack is not as fast as XLR8, as implied by Kevin when he stated, "[Fasttrack] loses way faster than XLR8."[4]

Being a speed-based alien, Fasttrack also has similar weaknesses to XLR8; examples include his speed being used to an opponent's advantage (as seen when Fasttrack ran straight into Sir George's outstretched arm, badly stunning him),[4] as well as being unable to run on certain surfaces like ice, which can make Fasttrack slip very easily.[3]

Etymology

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

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

  • Fasttrack's design is a combination of several iconic comic book characters, specifically that of the color schemes of DC Comics superheroes Nightwing and Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes). The two most notable details, however, are his overall body shape (notably the spikes and feet), which bears a striking resemblance to Terry McGinnis as Batman, and Fasttrack's face, which is modeled after the mask commonly worn by Wolverine from Marvel Comics.
  • Derrick J. Wyatt does not like Fasttrack and thinks he is the most boring alien possible, stating that being a fan of him is like being a fan of watching paint dry.[DJW 2]
  • Fasttrack is the only alien introduced in Ultimate Alien to have been unlocked off-screen.
  • 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]
