Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
Actor Allusion: Yuri Lowenthal voicing a character getting an alien that can dig through dirt with ease? Nah, it's probably just a coincidence.
Yuri's in a final instalment of a supernatural series, huh?
Not to mention Tara Platt voicing the actress who he enters into a relationship with .
note Greg Cipes' and Ashley Johnson's characters not getting along with Tara Strong's character initially? It's Beast Boy, Terra, and Raven all over again.
Greg Cipes' character
turning into a psychotic monster? More of a Studio Allusion, but Gwen's cousin Sunny is a complete expy of Blackfire, down to having a black-and-purple colour scheme and being voiced by Gwen's VA, Ashley Johnson (In Teen Titans, Blackfire and Starfire shared a VA, Hynden Walch).
This isn't the first time John DiMaggio has voiced an obsessed military man.
In "Ben 10,000 Returns", when Kevin notices the strange fighting styles of the multiverse Ben counterparts under Eon's control, he asks Ben, "Since when did you learn ninjutsu?" Guess who else Yuri Lowenthal voices besides Ben? Sasuke Uchiha.
Author Existence Failure: Dwayne McDuffie had died partway through the series. Didn't prevent the show's continuation and eventual sequel series, though, and all 52 episodes for UA had already been fully planned out before his passing.....though, for some reason or other, many plot threads brought up were left completely unresolved by Episode 52 ( the arcs centering around Elena, Charmcaster, and King Viktor being the most noteworthy) and now likely never will be due to Dwayne's passing.
Casting Gag: Actress Jennifer Nocturne, who wants to get into a relationship with Ben, is voiced by Tara Platt, the real-life wife of Yuri Lowenthal.
Creator Backlash: If this formspring is to be believed, the person who designed Aggregor is embarrassed about him.
The Danza: In Poland, Julia is played by Julia Kolakowska.
Fandom Nod: "Y'know, after all the hype, the Alien X smoothie was a real disappointment. Kind of tastes like filler."
Fourarms tells Captain Nemesis that shouting out his name is " stupid."
10-year-old Ben's reaction to Swampfire: "Plant guy? That's just a copy of Wildvine."
Hey, It's That Voice!: Dee Bradley Baker uses his Klaus voice for ChamAlien and Prisoner Number 775.
The Other Darrin: Zombozo is now voiced by John DiMaggio, rather than John Kassir.
Playing Against Type: As mentioned in The Other Darrin, John Dimaggio as Zombozo, in what almost seems like practice for another role.
Recycled Script: The plot for "Inspector 13" seems fairly similar to the first series episode "Secrets", down to Ben's arm being at the risk of being cut off for his watch.
Talking to Himself: Bivalvan, P'andor, Ra'ad, and Andreas are all voiced by Dee Bradley Baker. Galapagus is the only one not voiced by Baker, and is instead voiced by John DiMaggio, though it could count when Galapagus talks to Aggregor.
Word of God: Dwayne McDuffie had started a new thread for Ultimate Alien and any remaining Alien Force questions… Up until he died, at least.
The Forever Knights KILLED Pierce, probably planned on killing all those aliens waiting for supplies, and Ben needed to threaten to Kill 'em All to make them leave. As in, actually say KILL. Even their appearances and weapons have become Darker and Edgier. And now, most likely Old George will wind up somehow involved with The Lucubra.
