Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: Multiple episodes show Ben using parts of the Omnitrix other than the dial to select aliens, including twisting the switches on the side in ''X = Ben + 2'' and twisting the base of the Omnitrix in a third season episode.


* CastingGag:
** Creator/YuriLowenthal voicing a character with multiple personas, with [[TransformationNameAnnouncement battle cries while using them]]? [[VideoGame/{{Persona 3}} Weird...]]
** Also, both of their first transformations (Swampfire and Orpheus) have fire attacks.


* InspirationForTheWork: Dwayne [=McDuffie=] got the idea from the Highbreed from, of all things, ''bananas''. Ben even references this by calling the Highbreed Supreme "the Highbreed top banana."

** Creator/GregCipes and Creator/AshleyJohnson voicing characters with a mutual attraction to each other? ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', anyone? Either that, or ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo''.

* DawsonCasting: The casting for the upcoming live-action movie is fine, until the actor playing Ben is revealed to be [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0445987/ a 23-year old.]] Still, the ''last'' Ben wasn't 10, so...

** During their appearance in the original series, Ben's parents, Carl and Sandra, were voiced respectively voiced by series regulars Creator/DeeBradleyBaker (Stinkfly, Eye Guy, Wildmutt) and Creator/TaraStrong (Ben, Ben as Upgrade). In ''Alien Force'', they're replaced repsectively by [=Don McManus=] and Beth Littleford, who played the roles in ''[[Film/Ben10RaceAgainstTime Race Against Time]]''.

** One of the writers said that there was a big story planned for season three that involved Kevin absorbing more energy (presumably to save Gwen) and fighting against the insanity that comes with it but ultimately becoming evil. Cartoon Network approved it at first but then they [[ExecutiveMeddling chickened out at the last minute]], so the writters had to scrap that story and start a new arc for the season from scratch. This same story was rescued for the first season of ''Ultimate Alien'' but with a different approach, [[spoiler:in particular with a happy ending]].

** Creator/SteveBlum was also replaced as Vilgax due to schedule conflicts, the role being given to James Remar, who ''himself'' didn't voice the character in ''Vilgax Attacks!'', one of the video games, where he was instead played by Creator/JohnDimaggio, whose rendition of Vilgax is much closer than James Remar's. Steve finally reprised the role in ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]''.

* RealLifeRelative: For her elderly disguise (seen only in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"), Verdonna is voiced by Barbara Bain. In her true Anodite form and the flashback to Verdonna's first meeting with Max in [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien "Moonstuck,"]] her daughter Creator/JulietLandau assumes the role. As such, Landau could be thought of as a younger representation of her mother (or Bain could be thought of as an older representation of her daughter. [[TakeAThirdOption Or both]]).
