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

– Heatblast while fighting Vilgax's Drones.[1]

Heatblast is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Pyronite[2][3] from the star Pyros.[merch 1]

Appearance

Ben as Heatblast

Heatblast is a plasma-based life-form whose body is composed of a super hot inner plasma body covered by dark reddish brown volcanic rocks.[pop-up 1][4] 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[5] while his collarbone resembles a volcano which generates a fiery "hair" that covers his head, leaving his mask-like face visible with no nose or ears.

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, 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.

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, possibly due to the amount of high temperature he builds 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 rocky skin was more brownish. His hands and feet were animalistic. His eyes are solid red. 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

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. He can also enhance the fire in his hands for flaming punches,[1] and can breathe fire like a dragon.[5] To top it all off, he can even absorb heat and fire from external sources, [6] allowing him to put out flames in short amounts of time.[7]

Heatblast's fire can become hot enough to melt a tank[8] or a road, as he almost buried Vilgax in boiling tar when he was younger.[1] Several years later, Heatblast was able to bury him in the ground up to his shoulders.[9]

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.[10] He can create a fire bomb, which he used to destroy the planetarium that the Nosedeenians were possessing.[5] 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 drones.[1] He can also create fire disks and throw them as slicing or explosive weapons as seen when he battled Dr. Animo's mutant hornet.[11] Furthermore, he's able to create a fire dagger, which he used to slice through parts of S.A.M.'s water form.[12]

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.[13] 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 was, again, "supernova-hot".[12]

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.[12] After decent amount of practice, Heatblast is now capable of high-speed flight by propelling himself forward.[1][3][14][15]

On occasion, Heatblast has been shown to be able to instantly travel distances by enveloping himself in a tornado-like swirl of smoke, and disappearing before any smoke clears, zipping through the air to a new location. The extent of this pyroportation is unknown, and has only been shown transporting him small distances.[5][10]

Heatblast is able to teleport by producing a fiery tornado around himself, as shown when he avoided getting hit by a subway train and appeared again on top of it.[16] Similarly, he can even transport others to safety inside his tornadoes without burning them with his fire, as seen when he saved a boy and his mother from a burning building[6] and when he teleported Kangaroo Kommando.[17]

Due to being made of plasma and charcoal-like crusts, Heatblast glows in the dark like a candle.[16][18]

Heatblast is cold resistant and ice proof thanks to the high temperature he produces, allowing him to thaw his way out of ice, such as an Evolved Necrofriggian's ice flames.[19]

Heatblast can generate enough heat to solidify slushy substances or creatures, such as Lenopans.[20]

Heatblast is capable of using terrakinesis, shown by him levitating a stone into the air.[21] Heatblast is also able to use more 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.[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[6] and stop the Wooden Bell from rolling, which was said to weigh heavier than 3,000 pounds.[25][15]

Heatblast has enhanced durability thanks to his rocks and plasma energy that makes up his body, able to survive getting thrown through multiple buildings at high speed by Vilgax with no damage,[1] as well as Malware's laser blasts.[26] He also casually shrugged off multiple laser blasts from Rojo[10] and survived the Chimeran Hammer's explosion.[1]

Heatblast is capable of jumping exceptionally high.[27][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.[7]

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]

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.[28]

Weaknesses

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. Despite the new powers this gives him, Heatblast works completely "nonfunctional" to his fiery nature and the cold still prejudiced his health.[28]

If Heatblast isn't careful, he may cause a fire that will accidentally go out of control and spread in certain areas.[4]

Because of his fiery body, on occasion, Heatblast cannot hold anything without burning or melting it. He is also prone to burning the place where he sits.[6] Similarly, he can leave scorch mark footprints on certain floors.[3]

Despite having a body made of fire, Heatblast can still be rendered immobile by ice until he melts it off.[19][3]

Being a Pyronite, Heatblast is vulnerable to being trapped by a Crabdozer.[29][30]

Heatblast's fire attacks are useless against anything diamond-related or fireproof in general, such as Petrosapiens[31] Crabdozers,[15] and weapons and/or armor made from their DNA.[32]

Heatblast can get dizzy by flying around in a continuous circle at extremely high speeds.[12]

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

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