Gravattack is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Galilean from the orbit of the planet Keplorr.[OV Brief 1]


Ben as Gravattack

Being a silicon-based lifeform,[DJW 1] Gravattack is literally a living planet. He is a large, bulky, reddish-brown alien with rocky skin, a giant mouth with teeth that are also made of rocks,[DJW 2] and a molten lava planet core at the center of his body. His feet are tan with three toes, and he has three fingers and one thumb on each hand. He wears black shorts with green stripes, a green belt with white stripes and the Omnitrix symbol on his forehead.

Albedo as Negative Gravattack

Negative Gravattack is magenta and red-colored and his core, eyes, and Ultimatrix symbol are all red.

Bad Ben as Bad Gravattack

Bad Ben's Gravattack is violet colored, his core is purple, and his eyes and Omnitrix symbol are mint green.

Powers and Abilities

Gravattack can control gravity to manipulate the weight and motion of objects, allowing him to suspend and levitate targets in the air, send them flying back or forth, or slam them down to the ground with hand gestures. His control over gravity allows him to change its direction, allowing him to telekinetically send targets flying upwards or across the air as if they were falling.

Gravattack can place objects into an orbital track, causing them to fly in circles at various speeds. When using his powers, he emits an aura of hazy energy[note 1] which he can also form into walls, barriers and domes.

Gravattack can use the laws of general relativity to his advantage and can reduce the speed of objects (or in some cases, creatures) to nothing even if they were moving at the speed of light before.

Gravattack can make matter or energy orbit around him whenever he manipulates his own gravity in order to levitate and retracts his limbs, curling his body to a planetoid sphere.

Gravattack possesses enhanced strength, enough to punch a hole in the ground.Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag

Because he is a living planetoid, Gravattack can survive in the vacuum of space.[4]

With enough practice, Gravattack can create a Quasar.[DR 1]


If he takes large amounts of damage to his core, it can cause Gravattack immense pain. This will also make him to enter meltdown and explode, which can be dangerous enough to destroy the whole area he is in.[5]

Gravattack's large body makes it hard for him to move in small spaces.[6]

Sudden changes of mass can throw off Gravattack's orbit.[2]

Gravattack cannot stop someone from using energy-based attacks.[7]

If Gravattack manipulates the gravity of an opponent or object too much, he can accidentally create a black hole and will be unable to undo this despite his impressive ability to create it in the first place.[8] There is also a structural limit that Gravattack's target reaches long before the fusion starts.[MW 1]

Gravattack's name comes from the combination of "gravity", his main power, and "attack", the way he mainly uses said power.


  • Gravattack's concept name was Graviton early on in production of Omniverse.[DJW 5][AC 1]
  • Derrick J. Wyatt did not come up with Gravattack because the idea for the transformation had already started by the time he joined the crew.[DJW 6] His powers were created before his design and name were conceived.[DJW 7]
    • It was Derrick's idea for Gravattack to convert into a planetoid form.[DJW 8]
  • Like Way Big, Gravattack's size is portrayed inconsistently in many of his appearances. This is due to a problem with the size comparisons.[DJW 9]
  • Like the rest of his species, Gravattack is considered to be wise and patient.[9][5]
  • Gravattack was considered to appear in the reboot but did not make the cut because he is too powerful for the Earthbound villains on the show to fight.[DR 2]
  • Gravattack's voice started out on a deep note, but it eventually raised in pitch until it almost matched David Kaye's portrayal of Optimus Prime from Transformers: Animated.


  1. Gravattack's gravity aura was originally colored purple before being changed to green beginning in Vilgax Must Croak. Meanwhile, alternate versions of Gravattack are shown generating gravity auras in different colors. For example, Bad Ben's Gravattack generates a dark blue aura[1] while both Negative Gravattack[2] and 17-year-old Mutant Kevin[3] generate red auras.
  2. Albedo can only transform into aliens that Ben had unlocked prior to Double or Nothing and is unable to add any more aliens to the Ultimatrix.[DJW 3][DJW 4] Therefore, it is implied that Gravattack was one of the several aliens that Ben 10,000 unlocked for Ben Prime in Ben 10,000 Returns. This is further supported by Albedo being able to transform into Negative Gravattack.[2]
