* {{Flanderization}}: The ten-year-old Ben himself was Flanderized in an Ultimate Alien episode where he appeared. Somehow, Ben as a ten-year-old is even less well behaved than the Ben from Ben 10 (who was already obnoxious and immature).
** Indeed, in later episodes of Ultimate Alien, the 16 year old Ben has turned into a Brilliant, but Lazy, Attention Whore, It's All About Me Jerkass, who only gets serious in the last ten minutes of the episode

Much like [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce its predecessor]], ''Ultimate Alien'' had a controversial reception and maintained the BrokenBase amongst the fans. It was generally viewed as too similar to Alien Force to even be considered as a separate series, and is usually rather seen as a continuation of the previous one; the only major changes it brought to the franchise were Ben starting to use a new Omnitrix and Ben's identity being revealed to the world, confirming further his evolution as a LivingLegend in-universe. It was still notable, however, for two major [[AuthorsSavingThrow Author's Saving Throws]]: giving an explanation for Kevin's change of personality between the original series and Alien Force, and turning back the badly decayed Vilgax and Forever Knights into credible threats. It also had rather well-received Crossover episode with other Creator/ManOfActionStudios series ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'', ''WesternAnimation/Ben10GeneratorRexHeroesUnited''.

* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: Gwen's preferred approach to try dealing with Ultimate!Kevin [[spoiler:and she was right. He ''was'' in there somewhere... just not able to hold off the crazy for more than a few seconds at a time]].
-->'''Kevin:''' ...I've been trying to stay away from you!
-->'''Gwen:''' Why?
-->'''Kevin:''' ...Because I know what I'd do to you if I got the chance.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Cooper's crush on Gwen has not abated in the six years since they met, but he still stepped up without hesitation to help her save Kevin, even going so far as to reassure her.
* IWantMyJetpack: In-universe example: When [[spoiler: kid Ben]] shows up, he asks where the jetpacks are.
* IWasQuiteALooker: Though her actual form hasn't changed any (seeing as she's an energy being and all) Verdona's younger human disguise back in her and Max's younger days was... attractive to say the least.



* [[ImmuneToBullets Immune to Lasers]]: "That's your ''first'' mistake! When you shoot Rath, it just makes Rath ''mad''!!!" *roars* (Then again, [[UnstoppableRage what doesn't]]?)

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Kevin after "Absolute Power" and Charmcaster after "Enemy of my Frenemy". Both are somwhat understandable, as the two are both examples of WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, but it's jarring that they recieve NO punishment for their deeds other than themselves feeling bad about it.]]

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Prisoner 775 from the self titled episode. He was imprisoned for years for doing nothing more than being exiled to Earth for trying to save his homeworld from a brutal tyrant. By the time he got out, the rebellion had lost and his family was dead. With this on top of being confined to horrible conditions for whoever knows how long, one can't blame him for going on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the one responsible for doing that to him...

* YankTheDogsChain: Cash and J.T; the one time they're actual heroes, no one believes them.
** Charmcaster, over and over again. [[spoiler: She's able to return to her realm? She ends up trapped in it. She frees her realm? It's people proceed to fight a civil war over it. She ressurects her father? He goes back to being dead so that the souls sacrificed to bring him back can return. She finds a boy who likes her? He doesn't, and is using her for her power.]]

* AbortedArc: Three arcs that progress here (the lingering threat of King Viktor, the redemption journey of Charmcaster (whose true name is [[spoiler: Hope]]), and the possession of Elena Validus by the Hive nano chips) will sadly ([[BrokenBase or not for those who disliked them]]) never see their conclusion due to [[AuthorExistenceFailure Dwanye McDuffie passing away]] and the people in charge of [[Ben10Omniverse the following series]] saying they have no interest in continuing them. King Viktor became Dr. Viktor again with Zs'Skayr being shown devouring the king's soul, reviving the original Viktor, Elena will cameo as herself toward the end of the series with no explanation as to how she was freed of the nano chips' influence (thought it will be shown in a [[http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51TikJCx20L._SL500_AA300_.jpg graphic novel]], and Charmcaster will never go by her true name again and will never escape the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor.

** In "Nor Iron Bars a Cage", we have a corrupt warden who kills a prisoner to avoid him helping another prisoner out. [[TheShawshankRedemption Never seen that one before]].

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Aggregor seems to put the word 'Dangerous' in this trope. [[spoiler: He's not impatient, waiting until just the right moment to make his move. He knows enough not to go after the four fragments of the Map of Infinity without the proper abilities and seeks out the aliens with the exact abilities he needs. He employs MechaMooks that won't turn against him, and knows that his operations are too important for said mooks to do and instead handles everything personally. He's clever enough to subvert TalkingIsAFreeAction, such as when he murdered the Plumber who had boarded his ship when he was citing the violation code. One of the major things he does is that he actually tracks the Ultimatrix's signal to locate Ben and his prisoners. He subtly manages to recapture his fugitives without Ben and the others knowing until it's too late. He was well prepared for a Plumber ambush, and was clever enough to leave a squadron of his robots and his damaged ship that was set to self destruct as a decoy while he carried out his real plan. He pretends to let Ben think he's pummeling him when he isn't feeling a thing and strikes back when Ben stops. Finally, he lets Ben and the others do all the work in collecting the fragments of the Map of Infinity, stealing them after they've finally reached them]].
** However, he has some moments of seeming [[GenreBlindness Genre Blind]]. He's had [[VillainBall the chance to kill the heroes and passed on it]], flaunts his success (not that he can really hide it), and it really wouldn't have cost him anything to run the gauntlets himself (it just proves he's a {{Jerkass}}, which we knew already). He also ignores Kevin's warning that [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity absorbing energy will drive him insane]], not that he wasn't already. [[spoiler:However, with his OneWingedAngel transformation, Aggregor arguably doesn't need to be savvy; he's basically unstoppable.]]

** In "Ben 10,000", Paradox mentions "[[Creator/MarvelComics Cross-Time]]". He explain how it works, which is very similar to DCComics' Hypertime.
