'''''Ben 10''''' (the series, not [[Franchise/Ben10 the franchise]])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.

Why isn't the device in more capable hands? Well, once it attached to Ben, it was stuck there. [[ClingyMacGuffin It won't come off.]]

There's more to this show than meets the eye, however. For example, while this and most other American cartoons either NeverSayDie or push the ThouShaltNotKill [[AnAesop Aesop]], "[[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman people]]" in this show get killed with reckless abandon with hardly anyone batting an eye. The show's also infamous for the KissingCousins vibe between Ben and Gwen. Plus, it has plenty of [[NightmareFuel/{{Ben10}} Nightmare Fuel]].

Currently, the ''Ben 10'' franchise has four separate series: the original show, the [[TimeSkip Time Skipped]] sequel ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', the sequel to ''Alien Force,'' ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' and the sequel to ''Ultimate Alien'', ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''. The foursome who created the original series, known as [[Creator/ManOfActionStudios Man of Action]], went on to create ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'', and later work on ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}''.

Movie-wise, this (the original series) has three based on it. A LiveActionAdaptation ''Film/Ben10RaceAgainstTime'' (Notable for starring Lee Majors as Grandpa Max), a regularly animated hour long flick ''WesternAnimation/Ben10SecretOfTheOmnitrix'', and an all CGI film called ''WesternAnimation/Ben10DestroyAllAliens''.

** 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.
