* ActorAllusion: Ms. Dalton, the [[SassyBlackWoman sassy restaurant owner]], who is one of the leaders of the battle charge towards the end of the movie. Sounds a lot like one of the actress's [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace earlier roles]] doesn't it.



* DawsonCasting: Graham Phillips, who plays Ben (a ten year old), was 14 at the time. Likewise Gwen was played by Haley Ramm, who was 15.

* TimeyWimeyBall: [[spoiler: Eon seeks to use the Hands Of Armageddon to bring his DyingRace to Earth to repopulate, but traveling through time so much has weakened him to the point where he's unable to use the Hands. His plan is to use the Omnitrix to turn Ben into himself (a second Eon), so that he can activate the device and end the reign of humans on Earth. The movie is pretty vague about how it works, but at first glance, it seems as though Eon may actually be Ben, corrupted by himself in his own past. On top of that, when Eon succeeds in implanting himself in the Omnitrix, he declares that "two cannot exist at once", disappearing into a different point in the time stream.]]

* VillainousRescue: Eon claims to be doing this when he dragged Ben out of the Plumbers' headquarters. FromACertainPointOfView, he isn't wrong, as his actions ''do'' lead

* Exposition: Eon provides some about why the Omnitrix [[HourOfPower has a ten-minute time limit]]; supposedly, that's a security measure to keep Ben in control of the transformations (which doesn't mesh [[ContinuitySnarl all that well]] with the cartoons, where Ben frequently has stayed transformed for longer without losing control).



* ImprobableWeaponUser: Wildmutt Ben uses a ''time frozen Gwen'' to finish off Eon in their final fight.

* FoeYay: Disturbingly, yes if you look at it this way. Whenever Eon is with Ben, he's touching the boy in some way. It doesn't really help since at one point, he says that he didn't think that he and Ben would ever be alone.

* {{Expy}}: Eon looks and acts a lot like [[Film/StarWars Darth Vader]].

* TooDumbToLive: Ben, after being attacked twice by Eon, decides to take him head on by himself by waiting out in the open for him despite the fact that Eon can keep the Omnitrix from working properly. You can guess how well that plan goes.
