Way Big (alternatively spelled as Waybig)[1] is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a To'kustar, a race of ultra-rare, gigantic aliens that are created in Cosmic Storms.


Ben as Way Big

Way Big is a colossal humanoid creature with a large fin on his head, which is black at the front and red at the bottom. He has blade-like growths on his shoulders and spikes on his waist. He also has red arms with two black lines and white fins on the elbows, wristband like outgrowths on his wrists and yellow eyes on his head with two extra eyes protruding on his cheeks, one on each. He has red feet with two toes, a black sandal-like covering on the middle of his feet and three black lines on the side of his neck.

In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, Way Big's fin was red on the front and black on the bottom, his arms were white with red fins coming out of them and his neck and wrists were black. Way Big's eyes are green and he did not bear the extra ones on his cheeks. He lacked the stripes on his arms as well as the blades on his shoulders and waist. He also had red boot-like feet and did not have the sandal-like coverings.

In Destroy All Aliens, Way Big looked similar to his Alien Force/Ultimate Alien design except the red parts were colored to match his portrayal in the original series.

In Omniverse, Way Big has two red lines on his neck, the blades on his shoulders and waist have returned and he also has fingerless gloves, similar to the ones Four Arms wears. He is now more muscular, his head is less skull-shaped, he has eyes on his cheeks again, which are more metallic. The fins on his arms are longer and he has regained the stripes on his arms and stripes. Uniquely, both 16 and 11-year-old Way Big share the exact same design.

Way Big wears the original Omnitrix/Ultimatrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Ben 10,000 as Way Big

Ben 10,000's Way Big looked identical to his 10-year-old self, albeit he looked slightly larger, and had two black horns on the sides of his head pointing downwards.

Mad Ben as Mad Way Big

Mad Ben as Mad Way Big is near identical to Ben Prime's Way Big in Omniverse, except for orange replacing the eyes and the red parts. He also wears gray shoulder pads with orange spikes, spiked shoes, and orange wraps around his forearms and calves. His arm and head blades are also serrated.

Powers and Abilities

  • Cosmic Rays
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Skilled Melee Combatant
  • Enhanced Speed (via Glitch)

Way Big is very strong (even for his size), as shown when he defeated Vilgax (who was Way Big's size at the time) and threw him into orbit.[2]

Way Big has great durability, withstanding attacks from enemies while barely even feeling them.

Way Big is very skilled in hand-to-hand combat, seen when he fought giant versions of Vilgax,[2] the Garbage Monster,[3] and Malware.[4]

Way Big can shoot a powerful cosmic ray from the outer edge of his right hand by crossing his arms together.

Way Big can survive in the vacuum of space and in extreme temperatures.

Although he has never trained himself to do so, Way Big can create and control Cosmic Storms, which can also be used for inhabitation and transportation throughout space.

Way Big used to possess enhanced speed, similar to XLR8 and Fasttrack albeit with him leaving a red and white trail behind,[3] due to a glitch with the original Ultimatrix. This ability was removed from Way Big's DNA when Ben acquired the new Omnitrix in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2.[DJW 1]


Way Big sometimes forgets how strong he is, as shown when he accidentally destroyed the statue of Zabin by leaning on it.[5] His size also gives him a slight mobility issue (since he has to be careful where he steps to avoid crushing objects and people around him) and easily gives his location away.

Because of his size, Way Big cannot be used inside buildings or confined spaces.

Since Way Big's fin is a weak spot, a hit to that area can paralyze him.[6][7]

Despite his immense durability, Way Big is vulnerable to opponents with sufficient strength, such as a giant Trumbipulor.[8]

A Kineceleran can generate a tornado strong enough to lift Way Big off of his feet.[9] He can also be lifted and thrown by a Vaxasaurian, even when it's at its base size.[10][ES 1]

Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction

Way Big is used by Ben during The Final Battle against the Evil Way Big in Tokyo, Japan. Way Big used the Potis Altiare to enhance the power of his cosmic rays to the level where it was powerful enough to launch the Evil Way Big to the Moon.

    • Even black parts of his foots are probably, slightly taller than those tanks. I'd say Way Big is at least 500 feet tall.
