* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: "Super Alien Hero Buddy Adventures" features an actor named Abel North, who played a television hero Ben grew up with called Kangaroo Commando. He's quite obviously a spoof of Creator/AdamWest and his role as Batman in [[Series/{{Batman}} the 1966 television series]].

* EatingTheEnemy:
** One of Ben's,, Upchuck, is a Gourmand and is a BigEater capable of devouring practically anything inorganic. In his first appearance, Ben uses him to eat a robot machine that hijacked his grandpa. Strangely, while he can eat inorganic things, he can't digest organic matter.
** Various aliens have tried to make a meal of the characters. A notable example being the [[ManEatingPlant Mycelium]] who was a giant fungus brain who wanted to devour ever creature on Earth and take it over.

* CosmicRetcon: So, so many. First it's heavily implied that Gwen is a Magician and even further exemplified when she uses Charmcaster's staff against her despite it only being effective "In the hands of a true magician." What happens in Alien Force? "Er uhhhh magic doesn't exist, you're an energy based alien." Kevin turning out to be just as much as a jerk as he was in the original series and treating his son like garbage? Oh that isn't canon anymore. Alternate timeline.
** Actually, a couple of these can be taken as FridgeBrilliance. Alternate timeline? Ben changed the past by giving his Grandpa the cake (remember that Ben 10K states it was "Something I should have gotten Grandpa 20 years ago."). Magic being energy alien powers? Clarke's third law states that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
*** Another option: the Anodites use "mana," a term which comes from Austronesian languages where it often translates as "power of a supernatural form"; in other words, magic is a supernatural power.
*** [[WordOfGod According to Dwayne]], magic is the manipulation of energy, and technology is just another way to control the process.
