Now you'll witness true ultimate power!

Albedo proceeding to use the recalibrated Ultimatrix.[1]

The Ultimatrix is a recreated Ultimatrix-like device created by Albedo. It is only a stabilizer, instead of a DNA-altering device. Albedo created it as since Double or Nothing, he couldn't stay in alien form for a considerable amount of time.

Appearance

This Ultimatrix looks a lot like the original Ultimatrix but half the size, as it only goes up to the user's wrist instead of half of their arm. It is worn on the back of the hand rather than the wrist. This Ultimatrix is also missing the previous Ultimatrix's black button and wrist couplings. Before it took this form, it resembled the Omnitrix, except red instead of green, however, it was smaller and lacked the stripes. It was originally green until Albedo inserted a device into it.

All of the aliens in this Ultimatrix (except Albedo's true form and the Ultimates) have the same appearances as Ben's aliens in his Omnitrix (albeit with color differences and mirrored clothing).

History

The Ultimatrix was created by Albedo to stabilize his transformations.

While posing as Ben, Albedo made no use of it and claimed he was simply getting combat training in his human form. When he, Rook, Fistina, Solid Plugg, and Argit stormed a Techadon hideout, Albedo transformed into Wildvine and restrained them, shedding his disguise.

Prior to a brief fight with Weapon Master Number 13, Albedo claimed a Polymorphic crystal was needed for "Ultimate power". After a fight with Ben, Albedo inserted the crystal into the Ultimatrix, changing its appearance from that of the Omnitrix to a form similar to the original Ultimatrix. Albedo then displayed his use of the Ultimate Forms and later used the device to assume his normal Galvan form, but following that, he assumed his own Ultimate form.

After Albedo was defeated, Azmuth modified his recreated Ultimatrix, so he was not only transformed back into being an imperfect clone of Ben but was also transformed into an 11-year-old, much to Albedo's dismay.

Albedo continued to use the Ultimatrix to work with Vilgax on two occasions, to destroy all the Bens across the Multiverse and to take over Galvan Prime. The Ultimatrix was eventually disabled by Azmuth,[2] who salvaged a few usable parts and destroyed the rest.[DJW 1]

Features

  • The Ultimatrix is used to stabilize Albedo's transformations, making it so that he can stay in any form as long as he wants.
  • The Ultimatrix appears to have Master Control, as it allows Albedo to instantly transform into, between, and from alien forms, including his human and original Galvan forms, without touching the Ultimatrix.
  • The Ultimatrix seemingly has an evolution feature that is intertwined with the Master Control, as Albedo can directly transform into any Ultimate form without turning into their devolved counterparts.

Trivia

Incorrect Design

  • The reason Albedo did not use the Ultimatrix while posing as Ben was because it would show his red eyes and symbol while transformed, thus blowing his cover.[1]
  • Azmuth, in contrast to his opinion on the original Ultimatrix, called the stabilizer a clever device, claiming it could run forever.
  • Albedo was drawn as having the new Ultimatrix on the wrong way around in The Ultimate Heist, as the black squares should be by Albedo's knuckles.[DJW 14]
  • Despite bearing the same name as its predecessor, the recreated Ultimatrix has little in common with the original device, nor any other Omnimatrix device, as it contains no DNA samples and cannot transform a user into another species. All it can do, aside from stabilizing Albedo's transformations, is allow its user to evolve into an Ultimate form.
    • Interestingly enough, this same feature was an addition to the original Ultimatrix made by Albedo and not originally a function intended by Azmuth.
  • The reason why Albedo does not have all of Ben's aliens[DJW 15] is because, unlike the original Ultimatrix, this Ultimatrix is not a watch and cannot add any new aliens.[DJW 16] Therefore, any alien that Ben has unlocked after Double or Nothing, including Mole-Stache, The Worst, Kickin Hawk, and Whampire, is not available in this Ultimatrix.[DJW 17]
  • Derrick J. Wyatt has made artwork of Negative Alien X,[DJW 20] Negative Ball Weevil,[DJW 21] Negative Walkatrout,[DJW 22] Negative Pesky Dust,[DJW 23] Negative Bullfrag,[DJW 24] Negative Atomix,[DJW 25] and Negative Alien Z.[DJW 26]
    • As none of these aliens were available in the original Ultimatrix during Double or Nothing, it is not likely that they are available in this Ultimatrix.
  • If a Slimebiote were to attach themselves to the Ultimatrix, it would be like eating nothing but junk food all of the time.[DJW 27]
