Omni-Tricked: Part 4 is the fortieth episode of Ben 10.

Synopsis

After his meeting with Vilgax, Ben continues to transform rapidly without stopping or be able to revert to human form. While Vilgax tries to take the energy of a volcano to recharge his ship and return home, Ben gets the idea to "update" the Omnitrix and thus save the planet from his enemy. But what did he do exactly?

Plot

The four visit another picnic site, and Gwen brings Ben some food. Unfortunately, Ben's rapid alien changing, doesn't allow him to eat. Phil tells them that the problem with the Omnitrix is Vilgax himself, and all he has to do is defeat him. Phil's radar soon picks him up. The four drive towards mount Megalodon. Phil tells them that if Vilgax needs to break orbit, his ship is going to need a lot of energy, and there's a ton of it in the magma underneath the mountain. Phil suggest that they have enough time to undo whatever Vilgax did to the Omnitrix before he breaks orbit. Soon Vilgax breaks through the mountain, causing the volcano to destabilize right underneath them. Phil tells Max to turn back, but Max can't. Ben randomly transforms into Heatblast, and is able to stop the Rustbucket from moving. However Ben falls into the volcano. He tries to stop himself from falling, but cycles through a lot of aliens, until finally ending up with Heatblast, rocketing himself up onto Vilgax's ship.

Vilgax thanks Ben for bringing him the Omnitrix, noticing that he survied their last encounter. Ben tries to fight Vilgax once more, however his rapid transformations leaves him at a disadvantage. He transformed into Grey Matter, and suggested that he can control his lack of control. Ben eventually fights off Vilgax, switching from Stinkfly, to XLR8, to Four Arms. Four Arms manages to knock him off balance. Then Ben transforms into Diamondhead, throwing crystals at Vilgax. Vilgax tries to take out Ben, but Ben as Cannonbolt ramps up Vilgax's body, then transforms into Wildvine and flips him over. Ben gets tired from the work of fighting Vilgax. However Vilgax gets up effortlessly, dusting off his shoulders. Vilgax decides that he now wants the Omnitrix. Wildvine tries to punch him, but Vilgax catches it and blasts him with a laser.

Back on the top of the mountain, Max prepares to jump onto Vilgax's ship, and Phil questions what he's doing. Max tells him that he's his grandson, and he has to help him. Right when Phil tries to reason with Max, Gwen jumps right inside with mittens and a fire extinguisher. On the ship, Ben (as Wildvine) struggles to get up as Vilgax pushes him down with his foot. Gwen swoops in and shoots Vilgax with the extinguisher. Right before Vilgax recovers Cannonbolt rolls in and saves her. Ben transforms into Diamondhead, creating protection for the two as Vilgax focuses a laser on them. Ben tells her that she shouldn't be there, and he couldn't stand it if she got hurt. Gwen tells Ben to believe in himself, and right before Vilgax's laser breaks Diamondhead's protection, he transforms into Four Arms, telling her that he has a mission for her, to take care of Max. Ben throws her up towards Max, and gets hit with the laser. Max jumps in and catches her, asking her if she's alright. Gwen tells him that she's worried about Ben, and he's scarred. Max tells her that sometimes being scared is the perfect motivation.

Ben recovers as he is elevated to Vilgax's control room. Ben (as Four Arms) thinks about Gwen, worried. Ben tries to attack Vilgax, but Vilgax picks him up and repairs the Omnitrix, reverting Ben back to human. Vilgax pulls out a device, and tells him that the removal process is quite unpleasant. Ben uses Gwen's mitten, and pushes the device into Vilgax's arm. Ben transforms into Upgrade, angering Vilgax. Ben upgrades the ship, causing it to sink into the magma. Vilgax grabs Upgrade by his Omnitrix, telling him that he's doomed them both, and there's no where for him to run.

Ben then gets and idea and Upgrades the Omnitrix, thus destroying Upgrades DNA pod, and leads to the creation of Glitch. The Omnitrix glows and gets a new look. Vilgax threatens to destroy Ben and the entire world. XLR8 runs through and charges at Vilgax. Ben transforms from XLR8 to Four Arms, to Overflow, to Diamondhead, to Wildvine, back to Overflow, to Stinkfly, then Grey Matter, into Heatblast, then into Cannonbolt all doing damage to Vilgax. Ben finishes Vilgax off with Diamondhead, leaving him stuck in the ship while it sinks in magma. Max, Gwen, and Phil soon think Ben is dead, however Ben reveals himself to be alive.

Later on, Ben tells Gwen about how he defeated Vilgax, and went from alien to alien without touching the watch. Ben tries to demonstrate, but Phil tells him that when he used Upgrade to upgrade the Omnitrix, it gave him a temporary boost which allowed him to switch from alien to alien. Phil tells Ben that the Omnitrix is functioning the same as it was before Vilgax arrived. Phil leaves saying his services are needed elsewhere.
OPV402

Max soon tells the kids that it's been a wild trip so far, and if they want to cut the summer short and head home early.
