– Heatblast.[1]

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.

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 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 is located on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

Heatblast has the ability to generate and manipulate solar 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 and increase the temperature to cause pain to his enemies.

Heatblast can breath fire like a dragon,[2] which can sometimes come in the form of flaming burps.[3]

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

Heatblast has enhanced durability, being to survive being thrown through multiple buildings at high speed with no damage.

Heatblast is capable of high-speed flight by propelling himself forward.[4] As he ages, his flight becomes more natural, as he can ignite himself into a fireball and direct heatwaves away from his body.[5]

Heatblast possesses enhanced strength, being able to knock out Lord Decibel with a single punch.[6]

Heatblast can shoot a calorific fire in a form of lasers with his two hands. [7]

Heatblast temporarily got cartoon physiology due to a lightning striking at the Omnitrix. This allows him to disconnect his flaming head with no injury, create objects like a frying pan and train out of fire in a cartoon fashion.[8]

Heatblast can swim and use his powers underwater, but with a very low intensity. Ironically, he can survive being underwater despite being a fire-based alien.[9][10]

Heatblast can create a fire tornado around himself, as demonstrated by AntiVilgax.[11]

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.[12]

Heatblast can infuse his fire with other beings, such as a Petrosapien, to empower them.[5]


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.[9]

Heatblast can lose his fire out of exhaustion.[13]

Because of his flaming head, Heatblast cannot wear anything on his head without melting them, as shown when he was wearing sunglasses.[14]

Because of his fiery body, he cannot hold anything that is not fireproof without burning them.

Heatblast is weak against magic, as demonstrated with Hot Shot.[15]

Heatblast can be easily blinded by a Lepidopterran's slime should it get all over his face, as also demonstrated with Hot Shot.[15]

Heatblast's flames can cause collateral damage if not taken seriously.
