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 Recovery
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Dexterity
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Enhanced Reflexes
  • Enhanced Jumping
  • Speed-Enhanced Combat
  • Sharp Arm Blades

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] This feat 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. 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.[4] 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 and was able to carry them all in his hands before dropping them on the floor.[5]

Even though 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

  • Difficulty Stopping
  • Slippery Surfaces
  • Speed Being Used to an Opponent's Advantage

If he is running fast enough, Fasttrack can have a hard time stopping.[1]

It is implied that, despite his enhanced speed, Fasttrack is physically slower than Kinecelerans.[6][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]

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".

  • 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]
