Maybe not me. But my new Ultimatrix comes with some new features. There's a time to go hero, and there's a time to go Ultimate!

– Spidermonkey to Bivalvan as he prepares to go Ultimate for the first time. [1]

Ultimate Spidermonkey is the Ultimatrix's artificially evolved DNA sample of an Arachnichimp.


Ben as Ultimate Spidermonkey

Ultimate Spidermonkey has a large gorilla-like body with purple skin, black fur and three pairs of eyes. He lacks Spidermonkey's tail and extra pair of arms, but they are replaced with two pairs of retractable spider legs that can fold into his waist. Ultimate Spidermonkey wears the evolved Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Albedo as Negative Ultimate Spidermonkey

Negative Ultimate Spidermonkey has red eyes, pale-purple skin, and yellow spider fangs on each side of his mouth. Instead of the purple spider legs, Negative Ultimate Spidermonkey has two extra sets of gorilla arms, and he wears the evolved Ultimatrix symbol, which has eight spikes now instead of four, on his stomach.

Powers and Abilities

Ultimate Spidermonkey is stronger than his devolved form, being strong enough to take down a Tetramand.[2]

By splitting his lower jaw into two halves, Ultimate Spidermonkey can shoot webs from his mouth, much more than Spidermonkey can shoot from his tail. His webs are strong enough to keep a Vaxasaurian[3] and an Orishan[4] from escaping. They can also insulate and cancel out a Gimlinopithecus' electrical abilities.[2][5]

Ultimate Spidermonkey's webbing appears to be somewhat unlimited, as he can create enough webbing to make a soft cushion to land on if falling.[6]

Ultimate Spidermonkey is extremely durable, being able to survive an incredibly high fall after being thrown into the air by Vilgax, although he was badly stunned as a result.[7]

Ultimate Spidermonkey is highly agile, as he can jump extremely high[8] and can run very fast despite his large stature.

In Ultimate Alien, Ultimate Spidermonkey's spider legs could pull things and break them almost like he was using his hands. He could also fold his spider legs into his hips, and attack with the tips of his spider legs as they were sharp enough to pierce a concrete wall.[8]

In Omniverse, Ultimate Spidermonkey is capable of climbing walls, much like his devolved form.[9]

Ultimate Spidermonkey can survive in space for a short time, but he still needs to breathe. Also, considering that he once fell through space and down to earth, Ultimate Spidermonkey may also be immune to radiation, as he was completely unharmed after falling through the atmosphere.[6]


Despite his enhanced durability, Ultimate Spidermonkey can be harmed and discomforted by certain weapons, such as a Forever Knight energy sword, which was able to leave a scar on his chest.[8]

Ultimate Spidermonkey can be put to sleep by Argit's quills.[2]

Despite his enhanced strength, Ultimate Spidermonkey is physically weaker than Atomix, as he was overpowered by the latter's Nuclear Winner.[10]

Ultimate Spidermonkey's webbing is ineffective against a species capable of becoming intangible, such as an Ectonurite.[11]

Ultimate Spidermonkey's webs can be torn apart by species with as much strength as an Anodite[11] or melted by Atomix's nuclear energy.[10]

Ultimate Spidermonkey is sensitive to high-pitched noises, such as those of an Evolved Sonorosian's sonic disks, as demonstrated with his sentient counterpart.[11]
