** Gwen was initially written as Ben's classmate and best friend, and had no familial relation to him. It is unknown why she became a cousin instead, though the most likely reason was that her being a family member was the best justification for her to be on a long road trip with Ben and his grandfather. This DevelopmentGag is referenced in the WhatIf episode "Goodbye and Good Riddance", where Ben and Gwen become classmates at the end of the episode in order to better combat villains that might attack their hometown.

It has been repeatedly stated by them and others that they have nothing to do with [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce the]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien three]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse sequels]], as those shows had entirely different creative teams: Creator/DwayneMcDuffie for ''Alien Force'' and ''Ultimate Alien'' and [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Matt Youngberg]] for ''Omniverse''. Even then, they were mostly on writing duties in regards to the original series, due to the inexperience they had with animation production at the time. They only gained full creative control upon the ContinuityReboot.ContinuityReboot.

* WordOfGod states that Humans (Homosapians) in the series actually have special powers all their own but it isn't as obvious as other species. They can interbreed with most other species, they are one of only a very select few who can us magic and manipulate mana, and they are the only species who have a form of Adaptability which makes them suited to live in various climates, terrains, and even outer dimensions with little to no effort.
* At the very end of the where the elves try to get Grandpa Max to be Santa, you'll notice that the three children who talk to the old man look familiar. Who are they? Why, none other than Konohamaru, Moegi, and Udon from Naruto!

** Originally, Ben would have transformed into HUMAN superheroes, with the show seeming to be more inspired by ''ComicBook/DialHForHero''.
** Ben's first design had him as a freckled redhead.
** Gwen was originally going to be a classmate and one of his best friends, and she appeared in earlier concept art with a long ponytail and a pink shirt. She was changed to be a cousin since they may have been unable to figure out a decent reason for her to be on the road trip otherwise. The classmate aspect of this is referenced in the WhatIf episode "Goodbye and Good Riddance", where they become classmates at the end of the episode in order to better combat villains that might attack their hometown.
