* HalfHumanHybrid: Half human, half Osmosian. Notably, this is a {{Flip Flop of God}}. WordOfGod is that the creators of the original series intended for him to be a mutant. [[Spoiler: ''Omniverse'' goes closer to the intention from the original series by retconning Osmosians into being a human subspecies, not aliens.]]

** MultiformBalance: With over 1,000,000 potential aliens with various powers, he could handle any imaginable situation. Theoretically, anyway, thanks to the Omintrix's tendency to be uncooperative and his own reliance on the IndyPloy above planning.

Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: In the original series, Ben's entire fighting style revolved around this. His typical response to a threat was to use one of his strength-based aliens, such as Fourarms and Diamondhead, and simply rush at the bad guys to beat then senseless. From ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'' onwards, however, he is more tactical with his aliens and [[BoxingLessonsForSuperman takes martial arts lessons]] to minimize his reliance on the Omnitrix. Nevertheless, WordOfGod confirms that, out of all three members of the PowerTrio, Ben is the least skilled hand-to-hand fighter. It also states that if Ben and Kevin were to fight each other while BroughtDownToNormal, Kevin would win.

* CantTakeCriticsm: When Rook called him out for his attitude, in response, Ben challenges him to a fight, only to be declined.
* CatSmile

* CatSmileCatSmile: He sports this in most of his character models.



* TookALevelInJerkass: To an extent, there are episodes in ''Omniverse'' as well where 16-year-old Ben can be a bigger jerk than he ever was in ''Alien Force'', such as taking credit for one of Rook's ideas, inexplicably treating Jimmy Jones like TheLoad, mocking his enemies or being generally uncaring of [[DestructiveSavior the damages he causes in inhabited areas]]. His ChronicHeroSyndrome also tends to be very toned down compared to the previous installments; in the ''Galactic Monster'' story arcs, he shows little concern about taking care of Zs'Skayr, and was even going to leave Anur Transyl with him still on the run.

* ChronicHeroSyndrome: One of his most defining traits from the beginning of the show; even before he got the Omnitrix, Ben had an almost obssessive desire to help people around him whenever he can, sometimes at his own expense. This is why he JumpedAtTheCall when he got the Omnitrix. Partially deconstructed in the ''Alien Force''/''Ultimate Alien'' era, where it's shown he takes it so far he is unable to sacrifice anyone (except himself), even if it mean saving millions others. He will ''always'' try to find a better way if he can.

* AdultsAreUseless: Averted. He has the experience, the tools, and the ability to take down villains with or without his grandchildren's help. He knows about the Omnitrix from the beginning, does his best to help, and, when informed by his granchildren about aliens or other weird phenomenon, believes them.

* FutureBadass: Not that he isn't a badass already, but his future self in the Original Series is despicted as having [[HandicappedBadass lost his arm]] and replaced it with a very powerful ArtificialLimb, allowing him to help in defeating Dr Animo. ''Omniverse'' revealed he kept operating for an insanely long time, retiring only at the age of ''96'', and gained [[spoiler:the grade of Magistratus]].

* GoOutWithASmile: In "Max Out", Max pulls a HeroicSacrifice taking off the focusing lens of his Null Void projector, turning it into a powerful hand-grenade, in order take out all of the Highbreed and [=DNAlien=] army. He tells Gwen to cast a mana shield to protect Ben and the boys before saying farewell to them, then smiling and even giving off a wink when he sets off his makeshift explosive. Fortunately, the explosion doesn't kill him and instead transports him to the Null Void.

* {{Flanderization}}: In the first two seasons of ''Alien Force'', Gwen started of as a calm, soft-spoken and responsible person with occasional {{Tsundere}} outbursts. However in the third season onwards, she has turned into an sternly serious, moody, headstrong, hot-tempered, stubborn, snarky and occassionally aggressive teenager who becomes easily irritated on occassion.

** In addition, her character design in this series takes her concept from the original series (intelligence) and highlights it even more boldly through the fact that she is now freckled and sports glasses to compliment her nerdy girl theme.

* MsFanservice: Obviously not in the Original Show (she was 10 after all, and this is [[{{Squick}} not that kind of show]]), ''Alien Force'' and ''Ultimate Alien'' have her appear occiasionally in a bikini.

* ThisLoserIsYou: The show does everything it can to portray him as immature, unlucky, unpopular at school and generally not bright or talented, especially compared to his much more precocious cousin Gwen. Fortunately toned down in the sequels (it comes back a bit in ''Omniverse'', but it's nowhere near the same level than in the original show).
* TookALevelInJerkass: This happens to 11 years old Ben in ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]'', whose obnoxious BrattyHalfPint characterizations are taken UpToEleven compared to the original series (when he was 10).

* OlderAndWiser: Significantly smarter and wiser than his 10 years old counterpart. He is still a kid at heart, but he actually listens to advice, accepts others' help, thinks before acting and is less likely to suffer AesopAmnesia. [[TookALevelInDumbass]] In all of Alien Force and Ultimate Alien.
