You may control every last person, but what about a plant?

Ben taunting Sublimino while turning into Wildvine.[1]

Wildvine is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Florauna[2][3] from the planet Flors Verdance.[merch 1]


Ben as Wildvine

Wildvine is a humanoid plant with one eye in the middle of his face, five vine-like legs, four long fingers on his hands, flytrap-shaped flaps with teeth covering his head, and pods on his back that he can use as explosives or smoke bombs.

In the Original Series, Wildvine had green skin, green teeth, five legs, the eye on his head was blue, and he had secondary eyes of the same color on each of his shoulders.[TP 1] He wore the original Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

In Back with a Vengeance, Wildvine wore a yellow raincoat.

In Ultimate Alien, Wildvine looked mostly the same as before, except his skin was recolored brownish-green, his flytrap teeth were recolored black, and his primary eye, secondary eyes, and Ultimatrix symbol were all recolored green.

In Omniverse, Wildvine regains the green skin color from the Original Series, he now has only four legs, his teeth were recolored white, and his fingers are much shorter and thicker. The secondary eyes on his shoulders are replaced with patches of light green similar to those on his hands. He also now has a blue tongue, his teeth are more neat and his chin and flytrap teeth are bigger. 16-year-old Wildvine wears the Omnitrix symbol on a green and white belt.

In Breakpoint, 16-year-old Wildvine wore two red and white wristbands on his wrists, a white sweatband on his forehead, a white gym towel around his neck, and a larger tan belt over his Omnitrix belt.

11-year-old Ben as Wildvine in Omniverse looks the same as his 16-year-old self, but wears the original Omnitrix symbol (which has been recolored green) on his chest to reflect his original appearance.

Ken as Wildvine

Ken's Wildvine looked the same as 10-year-old Wildvine in the Original Series.

Albedo as Negative Wildvine

Negative Wildvine looks just like 16-year-old Wildvine in Omniverse, but is greenish-brown with a red eye and his flytrap teeth are black. Negative Wildvine wears a red and white belt with a red Ultimatrix symbol on it.

Gwen 10 as Wildvine

Gwen 10 as Wildvine looks similar to her male counterpart, but her body is shaped like a dress. Her fly trap is much larger and she has bulb-like hair with a ponytail, along with dark green lips. She has a skirt-like structure on her waist which covers the top of her leg tendrils. She lacks the spikes that Ben's Wildvine has on his arms, legs, and chest and she has one glowing pink eye. She wears the Omnitrix symbol, which is the same color as her eye, on her stomach.

Powers and Abilities

Wildvine can grow and alter the size of his body like a real plant but also retract it again at will. He can also grow and extend his arms, legs and fingers into vine-like tentacles to grab and restrain others. He is also extremely flexible due to his plant-like body. His fingers can stick to walls, which allow him to swing around.

Wildvine's vines are strong enough to lift two weights while supporting himself. He can also increase the size of them.[4]

Wildvine can merge with plant life, including Earth trees. He can also change his color in order to camouflage better. He can make body parts, notably his head, appear on the plant he merges with.[5]

Wildvine can grow black fruit-like pods on his back that contain a whole host of substances (lethal and non-lethal), allowing him to use them as explosives or smoke bombs, as mentioned above. His pods can also grow vines.[6]

Wildvine can grow skewers on his legs to knock down enemies, as well as grow sharp thorns on his body.[7] He is also highly agile, as he can spin in the air to disperse his fruit bombs, and throw them into the air, basically firing on his enemies.

Wildvine possesses enhanced strength, as he was able to trap a Loboan in his tendrils,[8] stop a falling cargo lift from landing on Max and Gwen and hold it for a short time,[9] and easily break rocks with his bare hands.[6]

Wildvine is able to regenerate his body if any part of it gets damaged, including his head.[10][6]

Wildvine is capable of quickly tunneling underground.[6]

Wildvine is immune to the effects of a flame retardant.[9]

Wildvine may be immune to a Vladat's Corrupturas if he can exert enough willpower.[DJW 1]

Wildvine can tame Gracklflints using his fruits, as demonstrated by Pax.[10]

Wildvine can close his flytrap, as seen during his fight with the Werewolf when he dragged him underground.[8] He can also trap people by closing his flytrap, as demonstrated by wild Florauna.[3]


Wildvine's vines can be tangled.[6] He can also be tangled up in his own vines.

If Wildvine stretches himself too much, his arms will stay stretched and unable to shorten.[9]

Being a plant-based alien, Wildvine is particularly sensitive to fire and cold. Unless he is given his energy source, he will quickly dry up, wilt, and perish.[merch 2]

Wildvine has a weakness against electricity, such as that generated by an Amperi, as demonstrated with Pax.[11][10]

  • Wildvine's Ultimate Alien color scheme is similar to those of the Florauna tribe found on Xenon from Secret of the Omnitrix.
  • Wildvine's voice has changed over the course of his appearance in the Classic Continuity:
    • In the Original Series, Wildvine spoke in an aged, gravelly voice.
    • In Omniverse, his voice became higher-pitched and sounded like that of a hippie.
    • In Ken 10, Ken's Wildvine sounds similar to his first voice, only slightly younger sounding.
  • Dave Johnson designed Wildvine and came up with the idea that he could rip off the fruit from his back and throw it like grenades, which Thomas Perkins later tweaked.[DJ 1] His earliest rendition was called PlantGuy and drawn by Steve E. Gordon.
  • Chap Yaep designed Gwen 10's Wildvine.[DJW 2]
  • The bulb-like hair of Gwen 10's Wildvine is similar to the hair of Princess Leia from the Star Wars franchise.
  • The Omnitrix symbol on Gwen 10's version of Wildvine is circular like her male counterparts, instead of having a cat-like shape like Gwen's other aliens.
  • Wildvine and Ditto are the only aliens to be manually (and accidentally) unlocked by Ben.
  • Wildvine is the first alien Albedo turned into via the recreated Ultimatrix.
