Plumbers' Helpers is the eleventh episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.
A pair of rogue Plumbers, alien/human hybrids, a female Kineceleran named Helen and a male Tetramand named Manny are hunting DNAliens, as well as other aliens, thinking all of them are evil. They attack the aliens and use what they believe is a giant disintegrator ray, which is actually a Null Void Projector. When they encounter Ben, Gwen and Kevin they attack them, and while Ben transforms into Big Chill saves Gwen, Kevin gets kidnapped for questioning, as Helen isn't sure the group is dangerous.
Thanks to her powers, Gwen locates Kevin and she and Ben set out to rescue him. Meanwhile, Helen and Manny use a database created by Helen's brother Pierce to try and find out what species Kevin belongs to, as they think he's an alien. During the rescue, Ben gets thrown into the Null Void, but manages to escape after transforming into Swampfire.
After that, the two sides work things out and after looking at a database of the aliens they captured and put into the Null Void, Ben realizes that some of them may have been Plumber kids. To make things right, Helen and Manny set out into the Null Void to rescue those they wrongfully imprisoned, and Kevin takes some of their equipment when they leave, much to Ben and Gwen's dismay.
- It is revealed that Kevin can temporarily extend his absorbing powers to whomever he is in contact with.

- After the DNAlien is sent into the Null Void, Manny says: "Another one bites the dust," which is a reference to Queen's song "Another One Bites the Dust."

Meanwhile, the Galvanic Mechamorph resembles Baz-l while the Ectonurite resembles Zs'Skayr's complete form in Be Afraid of the Dark.
- When Kevin said "I taught him that" after Swampfire escaped the Null Void, he was referring to the way he escaped the Null Void himself.[DM 1]
