Actually, right now I'm working on "jumpy." I may move up to "scared," or just go straight to "panic."

– Hobble to Rad.[1]

Hobble is a member of the Alpha Squad who appears in Omniverse.


Hobble is a humanoid insect wearing a red Plumber suit.


Hobble seems to be short of courage and gets scared in any situation, but he can be brave on rare occasions.



Hobble got into the Alpha Squad thanks to his marksmanship.[MW 1]


Hobble first appeared in Vilgax Must Croak, where he helped Ben, Rook, and the other Plumbers try to get Vilgax to Incarcecon. However, things didn't go well as Attea, SixSix, SevenSeven, and EightEight tried to blast everyone. Hobble went along with Rook to get to the room to contact Max. As he and the others headed toward the stairs, Hobble was captured by SevenSeven. Hobble was surprised that Rook understood the bounty hunter's language and Rook rescued him.

Hobble, along with the others, was then seen again on the catwalk where they appeared to be blown up by SixSix. Hobble, Rook, and the Plumbers were revealed to be alive after Rook saved them all using his Proto-Tool and they all helped Ben take down Attea's group.

In Rad Monster Party, Hobble was on the Lovely Duck with Ben, Rook and Rad Dudesman when Zs'Skayr crashed it on Anur Transyl. He was captured by Kuphulu, but was rescued by Scout and Ben as Crashhopper. Later, at the ship he was pursued by Crüjo until he retreated to take Zs'Skayr back to Z'Castle Zs'Skayr.

In Charmed, I'm Sure, Hobble fell in love with Chamcaster and accompanied her, Ben, and Rook to Z'Castle Zs'Skayr to get the Alpha Rune back. He accidentally broke his living reflection, which caused Ben, Rook and Charmcaster to smash their own living reflections. When Charmcaster double-crossed them, he was heartbroken but helped Ben and Rook fight her. He used magical ingredients to weaken her.

In The Vampire Strikes Back, Hobble was not placed under Lord Transyl's Corrupturas due to the mucus that covers his skin. Though he almost had his life energy drained by Ben when he first transformed into Whampire, he helped Ben enter Z'Castle Zs'Skayr with the Lovely Duck. He then used the Lovely Duck's Blasters to destroy the cloning machine that Zs'Skayr was using to revive a Vladat Army. After Zs'Skayr and Transyl were stopped, they managed to get back home safely.

Powers and Abilities[]

Hobble produces a protective layer of mucus from their skin, and as a result, is immune to being mind-controlled via a Vladat's Corruptura, due to the fact that the Corruptura simply slips off.[1]

As a Plumber, he has been trained in battle tactics and is able to wield a blaster rifle with some skill. He was also able to use the Lovely Duck's cannons to good effect.[1]


Hobble's biggest weakness is his lack of courage, which can cause him to go into a state of panic in a very short amount of time. 

Being smaller than most alien species also puts him at a disadvantage against larger and stronger foes.

Hobble can be trapped in bandages generated from a Thep Khufan.[2]



Season 3[]

Season 5[]

Love Interests[]


Hobble fell in love at first sight with Charmcaster when she appeared to help him, Ben and Rook on Anur Transyl, calling her "my dear" and trying his best to please her. Charmcaster was amused by him, and was possibly considering returning his advances judging by a conversation she held with her bag. When Charmcaster betrayed the team, Hobble was saddened and helped defeat her, yet still maintained his feelings, telling her "I'm sorry, my dear! This will hurt me more than it'll hurt you!"


  • Hobble is the first known alien character to express that he does not understand SixSix and SevenSeven's language.[3]
  • In the Omniverse Future Timeline, Hobble is married to Charmcaster.[DJW 1]
  • Ben's reference to him as "the little redshirt" is a callback to the science fiction classic, Star Trek. In this case, referring to how the members of the Starship Enterprise who wore red shirts were frequently depicted as meek and got killed off in multiple episodes. Likewise, Star Trek is one of many science fiction franchises frequently alluded to in the Ben 10 franchise.
  • His appearance and personality resembles Kif Kroker of Futurama.
