** The initial pitch of the show seemed to be inspired by ''ComicBook/DialHForHero''; prototype Ben Tennyson's transformations were more along the lines of HUMAN superheroes, rather than StarfishAliens.
** Ben was initially designed with YouthfulFreckles and [[RedHeadedHero red hair]].
** In the show's pre-production stages, Gwen was an unrelated classmate who also happened to be Ben's best friend. The most likely reason she was rewritten as a cousin was so that it would be easier to figure out an acceptable reason for her to be on a long road trip with Ben. 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.

** 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.

* GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld: Man of Action Studios created the original ''{{Ben 10}}'' show. It has been repeatedly stated by them and others that they have nothing to do with [[Ben10AlienForce the]] [[Ben10UltimateAlien three]] [[Ben10Omniverse sequels]], as ''Ben 10'' is owned by Cartoon Network and those shows were given entirely different creative teams. Ironically, Cartoon Network has brought Man of Action back on for the ContinuityReboot.

In the first episode Max corrects Gwen that Ben had turned into an alien instead of a monster, leading fans to think he was involved with aliens sometime in his past, as it turns out he was part of a an intergalactic law-enforcement organization called the "Plumbers"."Plumbers".
** Some guessed that Ghostfreak would turn evil when they found out the MonsterOfTheWeek was an Ectonurite in "Ghostfreaked Out", despite some sources saying that it was a completely separate Ectonurite. When the episode aired, the truth became apparent after a nightmare detailing Ghostfreak telling Ben to ''let him out of the watch'', and then subsequently escaping the watch after dealing with Zombozo's unemployed henchmen.
* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/RichardStevenHorvitz as Grey Matter. The little alien is certainly more subdued (and a heck of a lot smarter) than a few of Horvitz's [[WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers other]] [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim well-known]] [[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy roles]].
