Kinecelerans[1][2] are a species from the planet Kinet.[merch 1]


Kinecelerans have blue faces and skin. They have long, prehensile tails that may or may not have black stripes on them. Their arms end in three fingered hands. Their feet have wheels on them, which enables them to travel quickly. They have white eyes (although XLR8 has green ones due to the Omnitrix).

Kinecelerans have masks which can cover their faces. They appear to wear helmets, which are usually black, long, elliptical, and pointed at the top. These are made up of their skin and part of their skull.[DR 1] These helmets can have visors or glasses, which are part of their biology and not mechanical.[pop-up 1][3] Some Kinecelerans lack helmets, instead having alternate headwear covering their scalps.

They have black lips, black facial markings, and black rings around their eyes. They have no pupils.

Some Kinecelerans have claws instead of fingers.


Kinecelerans live their lives in a constant rush. They are gangly and naturally awkward.[citation needed]

Kinecelerans are prone to acting without thinking.


Kinecelerans are carnivorous, as demonstrated when ML-E ran to T8-M saying that she had bought a bloody nose to eat.[4]

Kinecelerans have accelerated metabolisms compared to humans.[DJW 1]

Powers and Abilities[]

Using their enhanced speed and agility, and the ability to manipulate their friction,[note 1] Kinecelerans can reach running speeds of 500 miles per hour.[merch 1] They can accelerate so quickly that time appears to completely stop to them, allowing them to change the positions of things around themselves mid-motion, while only being able to be seen by a camera with a very high shutter speed.[5] Using their incredible speed, Kinecelerans are fast enough to run up walls[6] and run on water.[7][8] The tremendous speed of Kinecelerans also makes them resistant to strong winds, such as the suction force of Viktor's portal.[9]

Kinecelerans have the potential to become even faster with age, seen when Ben 10,000 as XLR8 managed to outrun Ken as XLR8 in a race, even when Ken had a head start.[10] XLR8 was also capable of travelling globally in just a few seconds when used by Ben 10,000.[pop-up 2][11] This also boosts his strength, shown when his XLR8 was able to greatly damage Exo-Skull with speed-enhanced physical attacks.[11]

Compared to their fellow speedster aliens Citrakayahs, Kinecelerans seem to have more control over their speed; they can immediately end a run by stopping in place, while Citrakayahs can have trouble stopping if they run too fast.[12] Furthermore, they are confirmed to be faster than Aerophibians on the ground.[DM 1]

Even without their incredible running speed, Kinecelerans are capable of thinking, acting, and reacting at superhuman speed. Their sharp reflexes allow them to dodge attacks with little to no effort,[9][13] and change direction very easily while running. They are able to type on keyboards or keypads at high speeds. When using this skill to bypass a multiple-digit code, they can think of and input every single possible combination instead of guessing, such as when XLR8 was trying to remove SevenSeven 23's bomb from Ben 23's arm.[14]

Kinecelerans are capable of creating vortexes by generating a centripetal vacuum powerful enough to lift a To'kustar[15], either by running in a circular pattern or spinning at supersonic speeds.[16][17] They can can also combine this with water running to create water vortexes by running in front of or around their enemies.[7][18] They can even combine this with fire, as demonstrated by Helen.[19]

Kinecelerans can deliver attacks in rapid succession, such as excessively kicking,[7] or stabbing with their scissor-like claws.[20]

Kinecelerans have a great amount of strength, as XLR8 was able to lift multiple people without slowing down while running on water.[7] Their strength shines the most with striking, as XLR8 was able to punch Rojo harder than the shell of a military tank could.[21]

Kinecelerans are durable enough to withstand being thrown against a wall,[22] and can adversely survive coming to a dead stop at full speed.[23]

Kinecelerans are capable of jumping exceptionally high, and incredibly far when their jump height is mixed with their speed.[16]

Kineceleran tails are prehensile, and can hold objects if their hands are full, as XLR8 held a Null Void Containment Egg with it when he was about to trap Devlin.[10] This feat was first demonstrated when Kevin 11 used his tail to carefully pick up a tray of slop and shove it in Technorg's face when he wasn't looking.[24]

Kinecelerans have a natural retractable visor hidden under their helmets. This visor helps to guard their faces when running at high speeds for long periods of time.


A Kineceleran's biggest weakness is magnets and charged pulses, as they can completely throw them off-course and cause them to lose their footing and spin out of control.[merch 1]

Opponents with good reflexes and reaction time can counter a Kineceleran's speed and land a blow on them, such as Transylians,[9] Tetramands,[22] and Vulpimancers.[25]

A Kineceleran's speed does not work on all surfaces: running on ice will make them lose their balance, causing them to slip and slide around;[17] whereas running on sticky surfaces, such as Sploot's goo, leaves them stuck in place.[10]

A Kineceleran can also be held in place if their tail is stepped on[26] or held down.[27]

Kinecelerans are vulnerable to electricity.[16]

  • XLRG (½ Kineceleran)


The name Kineceleran is a combination of the root kine- (from Greek kinesis, meaning "movement" or "to move") and the Latin word celer ("fast" or "swift"). Together, they mean "fast movement" or "to move swiftly."


  • Originally, XLR8 was the only Kineceleran on Earth because the slow rotation of Earth made other Kinecelerans sick after a few days.[pop-up 3][11] This was retconned in Omniverse, as several Kinecelerans reside in Undertown.[4]
  • In Alien Data Files: XLR8, Kinecelerans are stated to be able to strike opponents with blasts of static electricity. Their electrically charged nervous systems makes them vulnerable to electromagnetic attacks.
  • Matt Wayne speculated that XLR8 is physically weaker than Fasttrack (and by extension, Kinecelerans are physically weaker than Citrakayahs), stating that "Fasttrack can probably lift more".[MW 1]
  • Due to the everything on Kinet being accelerated, a Kineceleran's lifetime on their planet is spread over a few weeks from an outside perspective.[merch 3]


  1. According to Duncan Rouleau, XLR8 is frictionless.[DR 2] However, this is contradicted by the many times XLR8 has been shown skidding to a stop, tumbling across the ground, etc. Correlating with Duncan, a cereal card states that XLR8 can instead manipulate his friction.[merch 2]
