– Heatblast.[4]

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


Ben as Heatblast[]

Heatblast is a humanoid alien whose body is composed of a bright yellow inner magma body covered by red rocks. His feet have a slight oval-like design with only two toes as the fire on his head takes the form of a dome, which leaves his face visible with no ears, nose or neck. Heatblast wears the Omnitrix symbol on his collarbone.

In Xingo and Xingo's World, Heatblast has a more cartoony physique and a slightly altered pattern of his inner magma body.

In Big Ben 10, Heatblast was as tall as a building due to being hit by Maurice's ray gun.

In Innervasion Part 3: Strange Bedfellows, the Omnitrix symbol was absent from Heatblast due to being used inside the Omnitrix.

In De-Fanged!, Heatblast's body was a purplish shade of red and the flames on his head was pointed upwards like a mohawk. His feet were also redesigned.

Ben 10,000 as Heatblast[]

Ben 10,000's Heatblast looks similar to his younger self's except he has two miniature volcanoes on his shoulders, a more muscular build, a different head shape, a larger flame, and darker colored rocks. The Omnitrix symbol is located on his chest.

Original Series Ben as Heatblast[]

Original Series Ben's Heatblast looks radically different from Ben's Heatblast. The rocks covering his body are colored similarly to Ben 10,000's Heatblast and his feet have an additional toe on the backside. The original Omnitrix symbol is located on his chest.

Powers and Abilities[]

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,[5] commonly fireballs.[6] Thanks to his control over fire, Heatblast is capable of absorbing it, including blue fire.[DR 1] His fire is strong enough to melt a rock slide, turning it into lava.[7]

Heatblast's fire has many other applications, such as using it to enhance the power of his punches[5] and kicks,[8] forming a vortex of fire,[9] surfing on his flames,[10] or creating flaming "bombs".[9] Heatblast can also breathe fire like a dragon,[11] which can sometimes come in the form of flaming burps.[12]

Heatblast can shoot a calorific fire in a form of lasers with his two hands. These lasers can both be used to weld two things together[13] or cut through something.[1]

Heatblast can infuse other things with his fire, such as a Petrosapien's constructs, to empower them.[14]

Since he is made of magma and rock, Heatblast is fireproof, heat resistant, and invulnerable to magma. He is also resistant to the cold and ice-proof thanks to the heat he produces.[merch 1] Heatblast's magma body allows him to pluck small pieces off of himself, which he likened to picking his nose.[15] Heatblast's fiery nature also allows him to generate smoke[16] and burn or melt whatever touches him.[17][18] His mere touch is powerful enough to destroy a Mechanoid.[19] His firepower can be amplified, though he can easily burn out from doing so.[7]

Heatblast is capable of high-speed flight by propelling himself forward.[20][21] As he ages, his flight becomes more natural, as he can ignite himself into a fireball and direct heatwaves away from his body.[14]

Heatblast possesses enhanced strength, being able to knock out Lord Decibel with a single punch.[22] He is also durable enough to withstand being thrown out of the Sonitrain,[23] and possesses enhanced acrobatics[8] and reflexes.[23] In addition to his flight, Heatblast can jump to high up-places.[24]

Heatblast can survive being underwater, despite being a fire-based alien.[25][26]

The light and heat of the molten core in Heatblast's body are more intense than his normal fire, allowing him to illuminate in the shadows in a candle-like manner. His light is able to attract the attention of Exotic Moths.[15]

Heatblast temporarily had cartoon physiology due to a lightning striking the Omnitrix. This allowed him to disconnect his flaming head with no injury, or create objects like a frying pan and train out of fire in a cartoon fashion.[27]


Heatblast's fire attacks can be useless against certain things, such as an energy cage created by a Fulmini.[28]

If exposed to enough water or fire extinguishing substance, Heatblast's fire will be extinguished, though he can still heat up and reignite his fire in short amounts of time.[25] His flames can also be put out by strong gusts of wind.[29]

Heatblast's flaming head and magma body can be a hinderance to him, prohibiting his use of objects typically designed with humans in mind, such as sunglasses,[4] or a bed.[30] If improperly controlled, his flames can also spread to undesired places, causing needless damage.[31][29]

Heatblast cannot breathe in space.[DR 2]
