'''''Ben 10''''' (the series, not [[Franchise/Ben10 the francise]])was an action cartoon franchise from America; this entry covers the first series. It revolves around the adventures of Ben Tennyson, a 10-year-old boy. While on summer vacation with his grandpa Max and cousin Gwen, he comes into the possession of a mysterious alien device - the Omnitrix - that allows him to change into a multitude of alien heroes. At first, there are only ten aliens (hence the name "Ben 10"), but more forms were discovered later.

** She is also guilty of a Broken Aesop in the opposite direction. The first season episode "Lucky Girl" revolves around her becoming a superhero based on a magical charm she finds. After losing it and finding out that the BigBad of the episode possesses many similar charms to augment his magical power, she opts to destroy them rather than use them herself, justifying it as a decision to "just be me". Unfortunately, this Aesop is broken for two reasons. First, her stance on not relying on such power tends to be overshadowed when her cousin keeps using that Omnitrix thingy, especially since she benefits from it as much as everyone else. Second, what does she do in later episodes? She readopts the persona briefly after finding an even better charm. Then she learns that she is capable of using magic, and (with a few tools stolen from one villain) starts regularly using it herself. In fact, in the future-based episodes, she carries and uses '''the exact same charms that she destroyed in that first episode'''! It seems those powers ''are'' just too cool to pass up after all.

* 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.
