Wow, I rock! What do you call that other one? Loogie Man? Spitter?

– 10-year-old Stinkfly after witnessing Spitter in action.[1]

Spitter is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Sphoeroid from the planet Scalpasc.

Appearance

Ben as Spitter

Spitter is a bulbous alien resembling a pufferfish with legs that is colored green on its outer side and pale green on its inner side. He has three spikes sticking out the top and bottom of his head, arms with four-fingered hands, short and stubby legs, and a long tail. His mouth covers mostly the front of him, which is filled with pointed teeth, and his eyes are connected to the corners of his lips. He wears a pair of black pants that partly cover his stomach.

In the original series, Spitter had yellowish-green eyes, dull-colored teeth, and his gums were the same hue of green as the outer side of his skin.

In Ultimate Alien, Spitter looks exactly the same as before, except his eyes are recolored light green, his teeth are recolored white, and his gums are recolored dark green.

Spitter wears the original Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his stomach.

Ken as Spitter

Ken's Spitter looked the same as Ben 10,000's Spitter in the original series.

Powers and Abilities

Spitter can inflate into a ball-like shape and spit out a concentrated blast of very slippery slime.

Spitter has enhanced strength, as seen when he held and pushed Dr. Animo away with no difficulty.[1] He also has sharp teeth.

Spitter's slime can be highly conductive, enough for a Nosedeenian to electrify puddles of the slime to attack enemies.[2]

Although he has never trained himself to do so, Spitter is immune to poisonous gases due to his lack of nostrils.

Weaknesses

Spitter can accidentally slip on his own slime.

Spitter can be unintentionally shocked due to his slime being highly conductive.

Trivia

  • According to Derrick J. Wyatt, Spitter was unlocked off-screen after Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens and is available to Ben in present day.[DJW 1]
  • Spitter is the only known alien seen used by Ben 10,000 that present-day Ben has never used on-screen. He is also the only regular alien featured in the original series that did not appear in Omniverse.
    • His absence from Omniverse was because the crew ran out of time. They tried to include as many aliens as they could during production. However, Spitter never came up during any episode discussions.[DJW 2][DJW 3]
  • Had Spitter appeared in Omniverse, he probably would have looked pretty similar to his Ultimate Alien design but with a new costume with more green on it.[DJW 4][DJW 5] He would have also been voiced by Fred Tatasciore.[DJW 6]
    • In 2020, Omniverse art director Derrick J. Wyatt designed a version of Spitter as a third-party commission. It can be found in the gallery.
  • Spitter is one of the only two regular aliens in Ultimate Alien to not have the Ultimatrix symbol on their chests and have it on their stomachs instead; the only other one being Murk Upchuck.
  • Spitter came to be from re-purposing one of Perk Upchuck's concept designs, similar to Arctiguana, albeit the latter's coloring was changed during re-purposing.
  • Not counting Wildmutt, Spitter is the only regular alien to have never spoken onscreen.
  • There were no plans to feature Spitter in the reboot.[DR 1]
