- The Faction as a whole are a lot more like a trio of Knight of Cerebus than before. Highlights include:
- 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 Pyro Maniac 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 thats more like a massacre.
