Four Arms is the Codon Stream's sample of a Tetramand (a play on the Latin "tetra", meaning "four", and "mand", meaning "arms") from Khoros. He is the sixth Omnitrix alien to appear on the series. He first appeared in Washington B.C. when Ben needed to fight the giant mammoth that Dr. Animo reanimated.
AppearanceFour Arms stands at approximately twelve feet in height, has very well developed muscles, two pairs of four-fingered arms, and the Omnitrix symbol on the upper-left shoulder and the Ultimatrixsymbol is on his chest. His skin is bright red and very tough, as though it is armored. The black stubble stripe goes from the bridge of his nose to his neck. A second black stripe goes from his chin to his lower lip, and he has four eyes: a main pair, and a smaller pair below them.
Powers and Abilities
thumb|right|240px|Four Arms transformation in the original series Four Arms is a 12-foot-tall (3.7 m) four-armed, four-eyed powerhouse with armored skin and extremely dense musculature, making him unmatched in pure physical strength. His strength is such that he can create shockwaves simply by pounding the ground or clapping all four of his hands together, dubbed the "Big Smack", and his leg strength allows him to cross entire city blocks in a single jump. He is also able to crawl up walls.
Sometimes Four Arms' bulk is a disadvantage, all the extra mass of his muscles and heavy skin makes Four Arms relatively slow, and his size likewise makes using things designed for smaller species difficult, especially when enlarging them. When under the effects of an illness, Four Arms's strength and stamina are somewhat lessened and he develops pungent hives in his armpits.
He appeared in Ben 10 vs. the Negative 10 (Part 2) to battle the Negative 10. He appeared in the series finale Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix trying to save Gwen from Florauna (Wildvine's species) and failed, although Gwen survived. He is set to appear in Ben 10: Alien Dimensions.
Gwen used Four Arms when she and Ben sneaked into a bowling alley, throwing strike after strike, though due to her strength the bowling balls that Gwen threw crashed through the pins and into the back wall. She beat Ben in a land slide victory.
