Malware being a lot more malicious in combat, slamming Ben around more monsterously.
Psychobos being a lot more matliculute and enjoys causing harm to others.
Khyber is a Serial Killer who has no qualms with including Julie into his room and is a lot more malicious in his actions with his hunt.
Orianus, an original villain created for the story, is a Pyromaniac who is a planetary arsonist. By which means he burns ENTIRE PLANETS.
Seebik has a darker intentions still as he tried to burn down all of Bellwood with lava.
All the while they are unable to move, The Faction decimates Animo's forces with the following:
Blowing up Heatbat with Orianus' flames.
Absorbing Mad Cow via Malware's technology absorbtion
And finally Psychobos Mind Raped Dr. Animo for information.
Ben, as Way Big, getting so angry at Captain Nemesis that he nearly crushed him to death for nearly killing his dad.
The Feedback Flashback is given a more serious twist despite the Mood Whiplash after the flashback ended.
the Incursean arc introduces the second most dangerous Bountyhunter; Apex, a white furred Appoplexian. Who is as much of a Blood Knight as the rest of his race but more malicious.
For the Incurseans, Vilgax And his henchmen arrive for a Curb-Stomp Battle that’s more like a massacre.
During a battle on Revonnah, Astrodactyl tries to save Kundo... but his reckless behavior ends with Kundo losing his arm, which he replaces with his damaged Sickle Bo Staff to form a plant-based prosthetic.
