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 all of Alien Force was the highlight of the franchise. In the end, Alien Force was popular enough to last three seasons and allow the franchise to go on, spawning [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien a similar sequel]] before it was decided to try going back to the Original Series' roots with ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''.

* SecretTestOfCharacter: In the episode "Above And Beyond", the Plumbers' Helpers go to a satellite station to rescue Max from Ben who has gone {{Ax Crazy}}. After each of them are defeated by Ben individually, they realize that they must work together to defeat him and manage to throw him into outer space. Unfortunately, the escalading battle kicked the station out of orbit sending it crashing on to crashing onto London. Having no other choice, the group is forced to [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice themselves]] by destroying the satellite before it crashes so as to save the lives of millions of people. However, the {{Self Destruct Mechanism}} turns out to be a dud just as Max and Ben arrive and put the station back into place. It is then revealed that Ben was only pretending to be evil to test the Plumbers Helpers' skills of teamwork and that the satellite station is actually a training facility for cadet Plumbers. As a result of their best efforts, the gang passed and are accepted into the Plumbers Academy.

* 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." Future Kevin turning out to be just as much as a jerk as he was in Ben's era and treating his son like garbage? Oh, that isn't canon anymore; the entire "Ben 10,000" subplot is an alternate timeline.
