** Ben's dislike of the Super Alien Hero Buddies for being bastardizations of his own alien forms in "Super Alien Hero Buddy Adventures" is funnier to look back on in light of the controversy and polarization caused by ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben102016 the reboot]]'' trying to be DenserAndWackier than ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]''.

*** Those in favor of the reboot also point out that the franchise had suffered so many {{Retcon}}s that it had become one big ContinuitySnarl, so a reboot is the only logical course of action. These fans are optimistic that the new series can bring the things people liked in the other continuities in a more organic way and new fans won't have to suffer ContinuityLockout.

*CompleteMonster:
** [[EvilOverlord Vilgax]], the OverarchingVillain of the entire franchise and by far Ben Tennyson's [[ArchEnemy most personal enemy]], is a psychopathic [[GalacticConqueror galactic warlord]]. After his evil caused him to be banished from his homeworld, Vilgax went on to assault and conquer numerous planets across the cosmos, outright annihilating the entire planet of Petropia and its billions of inhabitants to make an example of those who resist him. After discovering the existence of the Omnitrix, Vilgax becomes obsessed with possessing the gadget to modify it for his own gain, and spends much of the first series sending wave after wave of his forces to Earth solely to [[WouldHurtAChild kill Ben Tennyson, a 10-year-old-boy]], and steal the watch from him, later trying to viciously [[AnArmAndALeg saw the boy's arm off]] and [[EarthShatteringKaboom blow up the entire Earth]] for the trouble it has caused him. In ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'', Vilgax [[VillainWithGoodPublicity builds up his image as a law-abiding citizen]] by "legally" conquering 10 planets, though ultimately ditches this persona and tries to use the Omnitrix to lead a full-scale war against all who would stand against him. In ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'', Vilgax becomes the herald for [[EldritchAbomination Diagon]] before betraying and killing his master and stealing his power, hoping to use it to mind control all life in the universe. In the final series, ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]'', Vilgax, though at first seeming to have [[VillainDecay decayed in his evil]], pulls out perhaps the most wicked scheme in the entire franchise, using a Chronosapien Time Bomb to [[OmnicidalManiac wipe out all dimensions and timelines]], his own included, to leave only a single, more submissive universe for him to conquer and rule. Vilgax was a purely evil madman who would kill first billions, then insurmountable trillions, just to satisfy his raging desire to be the most powerful being in the universe, and stands out as the most iconic villain in ''Ben 10'' for this very reason.
**There's also [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Aggregor]] & [[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Maltruant]]. See those pages for details.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The franchise as a whole is usually seen as this by non-fans. While it has a lot going for it such as good fight choreography, creative aliens, and a lot of good talent, writers and voice actors alike, it also suffers from [[DependingOnTheWriter inconsistent writing]], fairly basic characterization, and rarely goes very far into worldbuilding the universe the characters live in. Even some actual fan will admit that while they love the franchise, they do wish it had been more.

* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: ''Creator/ManOfActionStudios'', due to kickstarting the franchise, tended to be looked at rather fondly, and their lack of involvement with the sequels was criticized, and Ben's characterization in the ''WesternAnimation/Ben10GeneratorRexHeroesUnited'' crossover was fairly well-liked. In light of their ''Marvel'' cartoons in TheNewTens, however, the view has significantly lessened, especially in regards to the [[WesternAnimation/Ben102016 reboot]] sharing a similar DenserAndWackier tone to ''Omniverse''.
