Added DiffLines:

**Though it was later retconned (in ''Omniverse''), since, for instance, Alan Albright was an ordinary human whose DNA was merged with a Pyronite's (Heatblast's species) DNA. All of the other Plumbers' Helpers (with the exception of Cooper) were also normal human beings until they were kidnapped and had their DNA mutated by Servantis, leader of The Rooters.

* DiminishingVillainThreat: The Forever Knights ''were'' an ancient cult seeking alien technology to facilitate their world conquest. Now, it seems it started in trying to find tech to kill an alien dragon. Fortunately corrected in Ben10UltimateAlien.

* SameCharacterButDifferent: Pretty much everyone. The most drastic change is with Kevin. In the first series, he's an eleven-year-old sociopath who couldn't care less about crashing a money and passenger train together, killing hundreds of people for some cash. Then he's suddenly a love-struck teen and friends with Ben!? No amount of CharacterDevelopment could explain having a completely different personality...although [[Ben10UltimateAlien the next series tries its luck at it.]]

This show as a whole is notable for starting a major BrokenBase in the Ben 10 fandom: while a lot of fans complained about the often unexplained (or badly explained) changes both in-story and amongst the characters, and remained faithful only to the original series, many others appreciated to see Ben finally getting mature after all the AesopAmnesia in the original show, as well as the CerebusSyndrome it led to. It's commonly believed that the first two seasons were good to decent while the third one was disappointing. In the end, Alien Force was popular enough to last three seasons and allow the franchise to go on, spawning [[Ben10UltimateAlien a similar sequel]] before it was decided to try going back to the Original Series' roots with Ben10Omniverse.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Gwen Tennyson and Grandpa Max, besides the obvious fact that Grandpa Max is a BadassNormal, he's super, super nice to everyone, but when you push his buttons it's not pretty. Same with Gwen, she's the nicest of the PowerTrio, but when she blows up, THINGS BLOW UP WITH HER. (Obvious Example "Max Out")

The sequel series to ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', with management taken over from Man of Action by Glen Murakami and DwayneMcDuffie of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' fame.

Ben "10" Tennyson and his cousin Gwen, now both 15 years old, team up with a reformed Kevin Levin, who is now 16, to stop various evil aliens. Seasons 1 and 2, which were initially one entire season, has them going off against the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi-esque]] [[ANazibyAnyOtherName Highbreed]], [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything who are determined to eliminate all other races, leaving the "one true race".]] Compared to the original series, those seasons had a [[DarkerAndEdgier darker and more mature approach]], as well as less filler and more continuity between the episodes. They also matured Ben into an OlderAndWiser, [[TookALevelInBadass more competent]] [[TheHero Hero]], giving him more control over the Omnitrix and amplifying his ChronicHeroSyndrome to almost MessianicArchetype level.
