In ''[[The Final Battle: Part 1]]'', Ben makes several indirect references to '''Alien Force''' while watching the show, and the series is a parody of the '''Ben 10''' franchise. The sequel of Sumo Slammers that he watches in '''Alien Force''' is called ''Sumo Slammers: Hero Generation''. Interestingly, ''Hero Generation'' was the original working name for '''[[Ben 10: Alien Force|Alien Force]]'''. It takes place 5 years after the original Sumo Slammers series (just like '''Alien Force''' takes place after 5 years), with the villain from the original series teams up with the Hero, a reference to [[Kevin Levin (Classic)|Kevin]] joining up with Ben in '''Alien Force'''. Ben even references how '''Alien Force''' wasn't as popular as the original, by saying that ''Hero Generation'' was all messed up and whatnot. When Kevin expresses disgust towards the show, Ben says it is not as good as Sumo Slammers classic, a reference to '''[[Ben 10]]'''. He then says that in 5 episodes, it would switch to the original.
