Hey! Why don't you pick on someone with real firepower?

– Heatblast while fighting Vilgax's Mechadroids.[4]

Heatblast is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Pyronite[5][6] from the star Pyros.[merch 1]


Ben as Heatblast[]

Heatblast is a plasma-based life-form humanoid alien whose body is composed of a super hot inner plasma body covered by dark reddish brown volcanic rocks.[pop-up 1][1] As a fire-based entity, his body radiates high amounts of heat. His feet have a slight oval-like design with only two toes and one back toe and he has somewhat large hands with bridged wrists. His tongue is also made of fire[7] while his collarbone resembles a volcano which generates a fiery hair-like aura that covers his head, leaving his mask-like face visible with no nose, ears, or pupils.

When under the effects of a cold in Side Effects, Heatblast's fiery skin (excluding his rocky body) turned blue.

In Back With a Vengeance, Heatblast wore a yellow raincoat.

4-year-old Heatblast looked the same as 10-year-old Heatblast did in the Original Series, but with a much smaller and thinner body, as well as an oversized head.

In Destroy All Aliens, Heatblast looks the same as he did in the Original Series, except his plasma body glows brighter, and emits movement, similar to the Sun. The rocks show small but noticeable cracks around him, much like other minerals.

In Race Against Time, Heatblast had less fire on his head and most of his head was exposed. His stone skin gained cracks of yellow glow and his plates were further apart, exposing almost parts of his plasma body. The Omnitrix symbol appeared to be embedded in his chest.

In Ultimate Alien, Heatblast closely resembled Alan Albright, only taller, not as skinny, slightly altered and his face shape was more similar to the Original Series. His eyes were no longer connected to the fire on his head. The rocks over his body changed, with a burnt black color and red markings on every edge of his rocky skin, resembling charcoal and his plasma body is a lighter shade of yellow.

In Heroes United, Heatblast looked the exact same as he did in the Original Series, only his jaw was a lot lower than it was before.

In The Forge of Creation, 10-year-old Heatblast's appearance is a mix between the Ultimate Alien design and the Original Series' body color. Also, his Omnitrix symbol was green.

In Omniverse, Heatblast looks the same as he did in Ultimate Alien, only his eyes are once again connected to the fire on his head, like in the Original Series. He is taller and more muscular, his face's design is different, and his shoulder plates are slightly tilted up. His feet are also redesigned. 16, 10, and 11-year-old Heatblast share the exact same design.

When put out by water, Heatblast's plasma body was a maroon color. His rocky skin is a darker shade of red, almost pink. The flame exposes his head. However, he is enveloped by a faint rising steam.

Heatblast wears the original Omnitrix/Ultimatrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Kevin as Heatblast[]

Kevin's Heatblast looked the exact same as Ben's did in the Original Series, albeit he had paler skin and lacked an Omnitrix symbol.

Gwen as Heatblast[]

Gwen's Heatblast was leaner, her chest was larger, and her face was longer and more curved. Her forearms were considerably skinnier than Ben's Heatblast.

Ben 10,000 as Heatblast[]

Ben 10,000's Heatblast looked similar to his younger self's, but he sported two miniature volcanoes on his shoulders and had a more muscular build.

Powers and Abilities[]

I'm fresh out of tanks, your Highney! But I am bringing the heat!

– Heatblast to King Viktor.[8]

Being one of Ben's most versatile alien forms, Heatblast is a pyrokinetic, meaning he has the ability to generate and manipulate intense heat and fire from his body. He can form fire into any shape that he chooses, commonly fireballs that he can project from his arms and eyes.[note 1] He can also enhance the fire in his hands for flaming punches,[4] and can breathe fire like a dragon.[7] To top it all off, he can even absorb heat and fire from external sources,[9][DR 1] allowing him to put out flames as fast as he can start one, which greatly diminishes the hazardous aspect of Heatblast’s pyrokinetic physiology.[10] Heatblast also has the ability to pyrokinetically make objects catch fire from a small distance away, as seen when he set Gwen's shoe on fire.[1]

Heatblast's fire can become hot enough to melt a tank[8] or a road, as he almost buried Vilgax in molten tar when he was younger.[4] Several years later, Heatblast was able to bury him in the ground up to his shoulders.[11] Heatblast can also use his fire to melt and weld clumps of objects together.[12]

Heatblast can make his flames explosive, explaining why his fire tended to cause explosions on a regular basis. On that note, he can even create fire fuses with the snap of his fingers.[13] He can also create a fire bomb, which he used to destroy the planetarium that the Nosedeenians were possessing.[7] He can create fire spears shaped like crescents that can be used as piercing, slicing, or explosive weapons, as shown when he battled a swarm of Vilgax's Mechadroids.[4] He can also create fire disks and throw them as slicing or explosive weapons as seen when he battled Dr. Animo's mutant hornet.[3] Furthermore, he's able to create a fire dagger, which he used to slice through parts of S.A.M.'s water form.[14]

Heatblast can transport himself and others to safety inside by making fire pillars or vortexes without burning them with his fire,[DR 2] as seen when he saved a boy and his mother from a burning building,[9] or transported himself on top of a subway train[15] and when he transported Kangaroo Kommando down to safety.[16]

Heatblast is capable of greatly amplifying the heat he gives off, being hot enough to melt Vilgax's electrical net,[4] as well as being able to solidify slushy substances or creatures, such as Lenopans.[17] Heatblast is also capable of becoming extremely hot enough to flash vaporize the Fountain of Youth and destroy a large portion of the cave they were in by 4-year-old Heatblast just having a temper tantrum.[18] Similarly, Heatblast can increase the temperature of his heat and fire with his speed, as seen when he vaporized S.A.M.'s water form by racing around it until his fire became incredibly hot.[14]

Heatblast can create a small fire-board on which he can ride at high speeds by launching fire backwards like an engine. On this board, he has enough skill to ride in a continuous circle.[14] After decent amount of practice, Heatblast is now capable of high-speed flight by propelling himself forward in the air.[4][6][19][20]

Heatblast is capable of using terrakinesis, shown by him levitating a stone into the air.[21] One result of this capability is the ability to surf through the air on a board of rock.[8][22][23] This was first demonstrated when Ben taught Alan how to master his own flying abilities.[24]

Heatblast has enhanced strength, enough to hold his own with his fists against Viktor, making the latter stumble several steps backwards.[8] He was also able to lift a broken portion of a house, rip off and buckle down the door of a car[9] and stop the Wooden Bell from rolling, which was said to weigh heavier than 3,000 pounds.[25][20]

Heatblast has enhanced durability thanks to the rocks and plasma energy that make up his body, being able to survive getting thrown through multiple buildings at high speed by Vilgax with no damage,[4] as well as Malware's laser blasts.[21] He also casually shrugged off multiple laser blasts from Rojo[13] and survived the Chimeran Hammer's explosion.[4]

Heatblast is capable of jumping exceptionally high.[26][8]

Heatblast can swim and use his powers underwater, but with a lower intensity. Ironically, he can even breathe underwater despite being a fire-based alien.[10]

Heatblast is immune to fire.[9] However, Heatblast has been shown to be hurt by the force of a fire attack.[15]

Heatblast is immune to being controlled by a Vladat via their Corrupturas as long as he can burn them off his body with a small flare.[DJW 1]

Heatblast is cold and ice resistant thanks to the high temperature he produces, allowing him to thaw his way out of ice, such as an Evolved Necrofriggian's ice flames.[27]

Due to being made of plasma and charcoal-like crusts, Heatblast glows in the dark like a candle.[15][28]

Heatblast is capable of generating smoke, shown off by him when he created a large cloud of smoke to psych out the Nosedeenians before they were able to get to him.[7] He can also smack a body of water in order to create an offensive cloud of steam.[29]

When infected with a cold, Heatblast's powers are completely inverted, making his pyrokinesis becoming cryokinesis (the ability to create and control cold and ice), and he is constructed of icy fire rather than regular fire. While in this state, he can shoot blasts of ice from his hands that could freeze and cool down a nuclear reactor, and create blue "ice-fire" balls to encase and trap his opponents in.[30]


Heatblast's fire attacks are useless against anything diamond-related or fireproof in general, such as Petrosapiens,[2] Crabdozers,[20] and weapons and/or armor made from the latter's DNA.[31]

Because of his fiery body, on occasion, Heatblast cannot touch or hold anything in his hands without burning or melting it. He is also prone to burning the place where he sits.[9] Similarly, he can leave scorch mark footprints on certain floors.[6] Similarly, if Heatblast isn't careful, he may cause a fire that will accidentally go out of control and spread in certain areas.[1]

If exposed to enough water, wind or fire-extinguishing substances, Heatblast's fire will be extinguished, though he can still heat up and reignite his fire in short amounts of time.

Being a Pyronite, Heatblast is at a massive disadvantage against a Crabdozer due to their fireproof skin.[32][33]

Heatblast can get dizzy by flying around in a continuous circle at extremely high speeds.[14]

Heatblast can be knocked down by an Aerophibian's neuroshock blasts, as demonstrated with Alan.[24]

Despite his Corruptura immunity, Heatblast can still be controlled by Corrupturas unless they are burned off his body.[DJW 1]

Despite having a body made of fire and resisting ice, Heatblast can still be rendered immobile by ice until he melts it off.[27][6]

Heatblast cannot survive in the vacuum of space.[DR 3]

When under the effects of a cold, Heatblast's pyrokinesis is replaced with cryokinesis. Despite the new powers this gives him, Heatblast works completely "nonfunctional" to his fiery nature and the cold still prejudiced his health.[30]
