Heatblast is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Pyronite from the planet-like star Pyros.


Ben as Heatblast

Heatblast is a magma-based lifeform whose body is composed of a bright yellow inner magma body covered by a dark red or brown rocks. 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. His tongue is also made of fire.[1]

When under the effects of a cold in Side Effects, Heatblast's body and flames 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 Ultimate Alien, Heatblast closely resembled Alan, 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 were darker, and their pattern was different, with fewer rocks covering his inner lava body.

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.

10/11-year-old Heatblast in Omniverse looks exactly the same as his 16-year-old self, except for the fact that he is shorter and much less muscular than his sixteen-year-old self.

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.

Alpha as Heatblast

Alpha as Heatblast looked roughly similar to Ben 10,000's Heatblast, only his head was more monstrous, his hands and feet were animalistic, his chest had an opening, and there was a tail-like attachment on his back. He wore a red fake Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

  • Pyrokinesis
  • Limited Terrakinesis
  • Underwater Heat Generation
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Pyrokinetic Flight
  • Enhanced Speed (via Propulsion)
  • Heat Generation

Being one of Ben's most versatile aliens, Heatblast 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. He can enhance the fire in his hands for flaming punches[2] and also can breathe fire like a dragon.[1] He can even absorb fire.

Heatblast's fire can become hot enough to melt a tank[3] or a road. He almost buried Vilgax in boiling tar when he was younger.[2] Several years later, Heatblast was able to burry him in the ground up to his shoulders.[4]

Heatblast can make his flames explosive, explaining why his fire tended to cause explosions on a regular basis.

When 4-year-old Heatblast had a temper tantrum his firepower was greatly magnified to the point that Gwen called it "supernova-hot" and the heat was so extreme that it flash vaporized the Fountain of Youth and destroyed a large portion of the cave they were in.[5]

Heatblast can create a small fireboard 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.[6] After several years of practice, Heatblast is now capable of high-speed flight by propelling himself forward.

When infected with a cold, Heatblast's powers are reversed, his pyrokinesis becoming cryokinesis, and he is constructed of icy fire rather than regular fire.[7]

Since he is made of fire, Heatblast is fireproof, heat resistant, and invulnerable to magma. He is also cold resistant and ice proof thanks to the heat he produces.

Heatblast is capable of limited terrakinesis by channeling fire through the ground.[DM 1] One result of this capability is the ability to surf through the air on a board of rock.[3]

Heatblast has enhanced strength and durability, enough to hold his own with his fists against Viktor, making the latter stumble several steps backwards.[3] He can also survive being thrown through multiple buildings at high speed by Vilgax with no damage.[2]

Heatblast can swim and use his powers underwater, but with a very low intensity.[8] He can even breathe underwater despite being a fire-based alien.


  • Extinguished Body
  • Affected by Cold Virus

If exposed to enough water 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.

As mentioned above, when under the effects of a cold, Heatblast's pyrokinesis is replaced with cryokinesis (the ability to create and control cold and ice). Despite these new powers, Heatblast works completely "nonfunctional" to his fiery nature and the cold still prejudiced his health, meaning that it's still technically a "weakness", although Heatblast made excellent use of this newfound power.[7]

Because of his fiery hands, Heatblast cannot hold anything without burning or melting it.

Heatblast's fire attacks are useless against his natural predator, Crabdozer.[9][10]

Due to his feet being made of fire, Heatblast can leave scorch mark footprints on certain floors.[11]


Gwen 10
  • In Gwen 10, Heatblast wrote her name in the sky with fire, to Ben's chagrin (as he states, it took him a month to learn how to do that).

Heatblast is one of the two aliens that are given from the beginning, Four Arms is the other, as you unlock combos you use him at his full strength. You will also need his abilities to run though fire and absorb it, and also to produce a rock to ride for a short distance in a fiery trail. Heatblast's special move is to create an orb of fire around himself, while another move creates a fiery tornado. The most powerful move is called "Armageddon" and features Heatblast ascending to the sky, off the screen, and raining fireballs upon his enemies.
