XLR8 (pronounced "Accelerate") is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Kineceleran from the planet Kinet.


XLR8 resembles a semi-armored Velociraptor. He has grey roller balls on his feet and wears a black conoid helmet. He has predominantly blue skin with bulging green eyes, black lips, and black stripes extending from his eyelids. He has two grey fins on his back, which are comparable to the dorsal fins of a fish. XLR8 also has a long striped blue and black tail. His elbows and legs are sharply pointed, and he has 2 claw-like fingers on each of his hands. He is dressed in black pants and turtleneck shirt with a blue stripe on the center.

XLR8 wears the Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

XLR8 can run at extreme speeds of more than 500 miles per hour.[merch 1] He is able to run at speeds up to 888 miles per hour, though the feat caused him visible strain.[2]

XLR8 can run so far to the extent of being able to create tornadoes strong enough to lift a To'kustar off of their feet by generating a centripetal vacuum.

XLR8 also has enhanced strength, being able to pick up objects Ben cannot.[3] He can also carry a Human while running.[4]

XLR8 is capable of delivering speed-enhanced attacks (namely, punches) with rapid succession.

XLR8 thinks faster than any average human being.[5][6]

XLR8 can go back in time if the Omnitrix is struck by energy from an external source.[7]

XLR8 can able to achieve speeds that are sufficient to create after-images of himself, making it appear like he is in multiple locations at once, as demonstrated by Rush.[8]


  • Speed Limit
  • Vulnerability to Poison Oak
  • Slippery Surfaces

XLR8's speed does not always work on all surfaces, like ice or strong adhesives, which can make it hard to control or slow him down.

XLR8's tail can be held down, thereby keeping him held in place and unable to use his powers.

XLR8 can only run so far or fast before showing some strain and fatigue, as shown when he was unable to keep up with LaGrange's car.[9]

XLR8 can be affected by Earth poison, such as that made from a poison oak.[10]

Ben 10

XLR8 is a playable alien character in the game. XLR8 is initially unavailable, but is unlocked towards the end of the The Funhouse level.

XLR8 is able to use his incredible speed to deliver lightning fast punches and kicks, as well as run so fast time appears to halt completely.

XLR8's Ultimate Ability consists of him running away to grab some Chili Fries and coming back to find enemies waiting for him. He begrudgingly defeats them with rapid punches, but when he turns towards the Chili Fries, Gwen is seen eating some of them.

XLR8 is not required to be used at all in order to complete the game.
