Way Big (alternatively spelled as Waybig[1]) is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a To'kustar, a race of 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 has red arms with two black lines and white fins on the elbows. He has wristband like outgrowths on his wrist and has yellow eyes on his head with two extra eyes protruding on his cheeks, one on each. He has red feet with two toes on each foot and has a black sandal-like covering on the middle of his feet and a line 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 was black. Way Big's wrists were black and his feet were red. Way Big did not bear the extra eyes and his eyes are green. He lost the stripes on his arms and lacked the blades on his shoulders and on his waist. He also had 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 three red lines on his neck. The blades on his shoulders have returned and he also has fingerless gloves, similar to the ones Four Arms wears. He is now more muscular and his head is less skull shaped. He has eyes on his cheeks again, and more metallic. There are also blades on his waist. And he got two of the stripes on his arms back. Uniquely, both 16 and 11-year-old Way Big share the exact same design.

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

Mad Ben as Way Big

Mad Ben as Way Big is near identical to Ben Prime's Way Big 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 Ray Attack
  • 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 can shoot a powerful pale blue cosmic ray from the outer edge of his right hand by crossing his arms in an L shape, with his right forearm vertical and left forearm horizontal in front of it and the thumb edge of his hands facing his body.[3] In Omniverse, this move is slightly revised; it could now be executed by Way Big crossing his arms in an X shape, and the rays are colored green. [4]

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

Although he hasn't trained himself to do so, Way Big can create and control cosmic storms, which can also be used for inhabitation and transportation throughout space.

During his time with the Ultimatrix, Way Big temporarily gained enhanced speed due to a glitch, though this was removed when Ben acquired the new Omnitrix.[5]


Way Big often forgets how strong he is. His size also gives him a slight mobility issue (since he has to be careful where he steps and avoid buildings and people around him) and he easily gives his location away.

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

Despite his immense durability, Way Big is vulnerable to opponents with sufficient strength, such as a giant Trumbipulor.[7]

A Kineceleran can generate a tornado strong enough to lift Way Big off of his feet.[8]

Ben 10: Cosmic Destruction

Way Big is used by Ben during the The Final Battle against 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 enough to launch Evil Way Big to the Moon.
