* CastingGag:



** Creator/GregCipes and Creator/AshleyJohnson voicing characters with a mutual attraction to each other? ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', anyone? Either that, or ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo''.

* DawsonCasting: The casting for the upcoming live-action movie is fine, until the actor playing Ben is revealed to be [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0445987/ a 23-year old.]] Still, the ''last'' Ben wasn't 10, so...

** During their appearance in the original series, Ben's parents, Carl and Sandra, were voiced respectively voiced by series regulars Creator/DeeBradleyBaker (Stinkfly, Eye Guy, Wildmutt) and Creator/TaraStrong (Ben, Ben as Upgrade). In ''Alien Force'', they're replaced repsectively by [=Don McManus=] and Beth Littleford, who played the roles in ''[[Film/Ben10RaceAgainstTime Race Against Time]]''.

** One of the writers said that there was a big story planned for season three that involved Kevin absorbing more energy (presumably to save Gwen) and fighting against the insanity that comes with it but ultimately becoming evil. Cartoon Network approved it at first but then they [[ExecutiveMeddling chickened out at the last minute]], so the writters had to scrap that story and start a new arc for the season from scratch. This same story was rescued for the first season of ''Ultimate Alien'' but with a different approach, [[spoiler:in particular with a happy ending]].

** Creator/SteveBlum was also replaced as Vilgax due to schedule conflicts, the role being given to James Remar, who ''himself'' didn't voice the character in ''Vilgax Attacks!'', one of the video games, where he was instead played by Creator/JohnDimaggio, whose rendition of Vilgax is much closer than James Remar's. Steve finally reprised the role in ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]''.

* RealLifeRelative: For her elderly disguise (seen only in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"), Verdonna is voiced by Barbara Bain. In her true Anodite form and the flashback to Verdonna's first meeting with Max in [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien "Moonstuck,"]] her daughter Creator/JulietLandau assumes the role. As such, Landau could be thought of as a younger representation of her mother (or Bain could be thought of as an older representation of her daughter. [[TakeAThirdOption Or both]]).

* FandomNod: When Ben explains the current Sumo Slammers series to Kevin in the final episode, he has a few very... ''familiar-sounding'' complaints:
--> This isn't the best one to start with. It's not 'Sumo Slammers' classic. It's 'Sumo Slammers: Hero Generation'. [...] [[ContestedSequel It's a sequel to the original show, but they kinda' messed it up]]. [[TimeSkip It's like five years later]] and the bad guy Kanko [[HeelFaceTurn has teamed up with the hero]] Ishiyama. [[EasilyForgiven It's not very realistic]], is all I'm saying.

* PostscriptSeason: Across its first two seasons, the show tells a sprawling epic storyline of a battle against one of the oldest races in creation, culminating in a final episode in which virtually every single dangling plot thread, character and story concept the series has set up is convincingly brought together for a dramatic final battle that ended with the saving of the entire universe....aaaand then they made a third season. The season distinguished itself by bringing back the BigBad from the original series, but ultimately achieved little other than setting up the next incarnation of the series with its finale, consisting almost entirely as it did of one-shot adventures of no consequence, with little to no use of the new ideas and concepts set up in the season premiere. The third season was quite clearly not originally planned for the final moment of season two, in which Ben looks at the Omnitrix and claims to have a new set of ten aliens he does not recognize: quite obviously intended as an open ending that was then ignored when season three began and he had his standard ten still in place.
