Speedyquick is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Kineceleran from the planet Kinet and the Dimension 23 equivalent of XLR8.


Speedyquick looks similar to 16-year-old XLR8 in Omniverse except his skin and tail stripes are bluish-white, his eyes are blue, and his chest is dark blue. The Omnitrix symbol on his chest is blue with a golden rim.

Powers and Abilities

Speedyquick can manipulate friction to reach speeds of 500 miles per hour within two seconds. Speedyquick can accelerate so quickly that time appears to completely stop to him, allowing him to change the positions of things around him while they are moving.[1] Kinecelerans seem to become faster as they grow older, seeing how XLR8 was capable of traveling globally in just a few seconds when used by Ben 10,000.[pop-up 1][2]

Basically, Speedyquick can run so fast to the point where he cannot be seen until a camera's slow-motion is used.[1] He also appears to have more control over his speed than fellow speed alien Fastcat, seeing as XLR8 could always stop immediately after running for a while, whereas Fasttrack can have trouble stopping if he runs too fast.[3] Furthermore, while Speedyquick is implied to be even faster than Citrakayahs,[4][5] he is also faster than Aerophibians on the ground.[DM 1]

Speedyquick has very high dexterity as well, capable of thinking, acting and reacting at superhuman speed. He is able to type on keyboards or keypads at high speeds. When using this skill to bypass a multiple-digit code, he 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.[6]

Speedyquick can deliver speed-enhanced attacks with rapid succession, such as excessively kicking or stabbing enemies with great speed and strength.

Speedyquick's speed gives him highly sharp reflexes, allowing him to dodge attacks with little to no effort,[7][8] and change direction very easily while running.

Speedyquick is capable of creating tornadoes by generating a centripetal vacuum powerful enough to lift a To'kustar[9], either by running in a circular pattern or spinning at supersonic speeds.[10][11]

Speedyquick is fast enough to run on water.[12][13] While doing so, he can even create water vortexes when he is either running in front of[12] or around his enemies.[14]

Speedyquick can run up walls.[15]

Speedyquick's scissor-like claws can cut through many materials with relative ease.[16]

Speedyquick has enhanced strength, as shown when XLR8 was able to carry a multitude of people, including Gwen Prime, to safety without slowing down at age 10.[12][10]

In addition to his speed becoming faster, Speedyquick's strength will increase as he gets older as well, as Ben 10,000 as XLR8 was able to greatly damage Exo-Skull with physical attacks further enhanced by striking at rapid succession due to his speed.[2]

Speedyquick can recover from injuries faster than any other species,[8] though he is also durable enough to withstand being thrown against a wall.[17]

Speedyquick's tail is prehensile, as shown when XLR8 held a Null Void egg with it when he was about to trap Devlin 11.[18] This feat was first demonstrated when Kevin 11 used his tail to hang on to Diamondhead's leg after being pushed to the point of almost falling off a cart.[13]

Speedyquick is able to cling to surfaces, either due to his claws, his agility, or a combination of the two.[10]

Speedyquick can make opponents dizzy to the point of falling unconscious by grabbing them by their arms and spinning them around in a circle at a fast pace; this feat was exclusively demonstrated by Helen on Gwen Prime.[19]

Speedyquick is completely frictionless.[DR 1]


Speedyquick's speed does not work on all surfaces; running on ice can slow him down,[20] whereas running on mud leaves him stuck in place.[18]

Speedyquick can also be held in place if his tail is either stepped on[21] or held down.[22]

Speedyquick's speed can be used to an opponent's advantage, as shown when Ben Prime was left badly stunned when he ran into Princess Looma's outstretched arm.[17] Similarly, Gwen 10 experienced the same thing during her fight with No Watch Ben as Wildmutt.[23]

Speedyquick is unable to avoid multiple objects being thrown at him all at once.[2]

Speedyquick has a strength limit; this was demonstrated when XLR8 felt discomfort on his back from carrying Mr. Baumann over his shoulders.[24] Technically speaking, Speedyquick is physically weaker than Citrakayahs.[MW 1]

Speedyquick is very hyperactive and it can be difficult for him to stay focused, most notably shown when XLR8 got bored of looking at magic books and started reading a Sumo Slammers magazine instead.[25]

Speedyquick has sensitive hearing, meaning that he is vulnerable to being knocked out by a Sonorosian's sonic screams, as demonstrated with Helen.[26]

Speedyquick is vulnerable to the telekinetic abilities of a Celestialsapien, as demonstrated with Helen.[27]
