What Rhymes with Omnitrix? is the one hundred and twenty-eighth episode of Ben 10.

Synopsis

At a poetry slam event, Charmcaster's reading of Kevin's poetry causes magical trouble for Ben and Gwen, causing mind swaps that have everyone confused as to who's fighting who.

Plot

The episode opens off with Charmcaster citing a a poem to an audience about how much she hates Gwen. The audience then applauds. She walks away, through the halls complaining about how she has no magic without her spell book. She bumps into Kevin, who is also there. They both drop their books. Kevin questions what she's doing there, as he's suspicious of her after their last encounter. Charmcaster states that she's there for other reasons, and that she's "more powerful than ever." She then picks up the wrong book and walks off. Inside a room, she goes through her purse, and notices a rune given to her by her uncle.

Soon, Rath busts in to the poetry center, hearing that there was a slam going on. Max states that a poetry slam is where people gather to hear the words of their fellow man. Gwen notices Kevin, surprised that he's their fellow man. Kevin prepares to cite his poem, but he notices that he didn't write anything on the page. Rath yells at him, telling Kevin to get off the stage. Kevin notices Rath, and gets mad. He then begins rapping, dissing Ben while at it. By the time he finishes, Rath comes on the stage and tries to diss Kevin in his "rap." Rath times out, and Ben finishes the rap. Ben's rap was so bad even Max and Gwen didn't like it. Kevin teases him, and Ben tackles him.

Charmcaster comes to the stage to cite her poem, but she realizes it isn't her writing. She looks over into the crowd, and notices Gwen. Gwen looks up and sees Charmcaster. Charmcaster flips through the poem book, but notices how "emo" they sound. She reads one of the poems, and her rune lights up. She then blinds Max. She cites more of the poems, causing a panic in he building. She then manages to lock the place down. She gets the idea to write her own things, however, the rune doesn't respond to her writing. She continues to read Kevin's book, and the rune starts to give her power. She then attacks Gwen. Kevin and Ben lie on the floor telling each other to be quiet. Kevin looks up and sees Charmcaster with his notebook. Ben hears the name "Charmcaster", and figures that he has to stop her. The two hit their watches at the same time. Ben transforms into Humungousaur, and Kevin transforms into Quad Smack. Quad Smack runs into Charmcaster. Charmcaster catches him, freezes him in the air. Kevin demands Charmcaster to give him back his notebook. Charmcaster admits that she isn't a fan of the style, but it's made her more powerful than ever. She proposes for Kevin to join her, and together they can be unstoppable. Kevin then declines. Humungousaur gets up, and goes to save Kevin. Charmcaster pushes Humungousaur and Quad Smack back. She states that they are weak, and she seeks only her true nemesis. She then searches for Gwen.

Gwen pops out, hiding under the table, and Max as well. Gwen makes up a plan to stop Charmcaster. She explains that the notebook is the problem. Her powers come from the amulet, which is only powered by reading the words of Kevin's notebook out loud. Humungousaur teases Kevin about his poems, and they begin fighting again. Their location is given away, and Gwen and Max are found by Charmcaster. Charmcaster shoots Gwen with a spell that prevents her from talking. Humungousaur and Quad Smack attempts to take out Charmcaster, however, their efforts are ineffective. Charmcaster then puts a spell on Kevin and Ben, which tricks them into thinking that the other is her. The two fight each other, while Charmcaster looks around for Gwen. Charmcaster tries to harm innocents to make Gwen reveal herself, and it works. Gwen manages to take the book from Charmcaster. Meanwhile, Kevin and Ben break free from Charmcaster's spell. Ben times out. Kevin asks Ben what the plan is, however, Ben doesn't have one. He suggest Kevin transforms into Dark Matter to help them out.

Charmcaster continues to chase Gwen around for the book, and retrieves it. Dark Matter looks over to Ben, who is still timed out. Kevin then forces the Omnitrix to time in via a code or sequence. Ben transforms into Shock Rock. The two tries whatever they can to stop Charmcaster, however, they fail. They then time out. Charmcaster walks over to them, and asks for Kevin to help her one last time. Kevin states that there is nothing for her to do to make him change his mind. Charmcaster looks over to the back page, and begins to read it, much to Kevin's displeasing. Accidentally, she gives Gwen her ability to speak back. Gwen then tells Ben and Kevin her plan. She tells them that they need a poem that can silence her. Ben suggest that Kevin makes one. Kevin then agrees to helping Charmcaster. Kevin finishes writing the poem, and Charmcaster begins to read it. All of Charmcaster's spells are then all undone. Gwen, Ben, and Kevin then confronts her. She, however, does not want to listen to it, and she creates a portal for her escape out of her own wish. She then escapes, finally figuring out how to use her rune. Kevin is relieved to have his spell book back, and is complimented by Gwen on his poetry. Kevin reacts saying enemies don't compliment each other. Ben then starts to rap, attempting to diss Kevin. Kevin walks away, annoyed, and Gwen demands Ben to stop.
