Now the next alien is something that Ben really likes to use because he has extra hands (when it comes to tough problems once and a while) and a lot of muscle when it comes to facing tough villains and helping anyone in who’s in trouble. This alien’s name that Ben gave him is Four Arms!
Species and Home planet: Four Arms species is called a Tetraman and where he comes from is a planet called Khoros. See image of planet below:
Original Series Description: Four Arms is described as a red humanoid alien that is approximately 12 feet tall. He has well developed muscles, two pairs of four-fingered arms, has tough looking red skin, a black stripe that goes from his chin to his lower lip, and he has four yellow eyes: a main pair above and a smaller pair below them. Four Arms wears a white T-shirt with a black line going down it, black colored pants, and fingerless gloves. He also doesn’t have any hair (just so you know). The Omnitrix symbol is located on his upper left shoulder. When he was used by Ben 10,000 in an alternate dimension, Four Arms appeared to have a better developed forehead, more developed muscle mass, a very different T-shirt design, and a pair of jutting incisors. Plus the Omnitrix symbol was located on his chest instead of his left shoulder. See images below:
Gwen 10 as Four Arms Description: When Gwen 10 used her version of Four Arms in an alternate reality the skin was now a darker color. The hair and clothes based on Gwen‘s, and lacks the vertical black stripe sported by Ben’s version. But just like Ben’s, Gwen’s Four Arms wears the Omnitrix symbol on her upper left shoulder. See image below:
Ultimate Alien Description: When he was used in Ben 10 Ultimate Alien, he was wearing gold wrist and ankle bands, black colored underwear with a gold waistband, and he wears two golden colored sashes that go across his chest and back. His eyes are green instead of yellow and he has a black colored ponytail (which is surprising). Also the Ultimatrix symbol is located on his chest instead of his left shoulder. When used by 11-year-old Ben he did still looked the same as he was in the Original Series except that the eyes are green and the Omnitrix symbol on his left shoulder is re-colored. See image below:
Hero’s United Description: When Four Arms was used in Ben 10 Generator Rex Hero’s United, He (in addition to his clothes in Ultimate Alien) was now wearing pants (instead of underwear) with the same golden waistband, fingerless gloves, tattoo like stripes on his body, which are the same as the stripes of his shirt in original, which is sort of giving him the old look he had in the Original Series. Also like always the Ultimatrix symbol is located on his chest. See image below:
Omniverse Description: In Omniverse when 11-year-old Ben used Four Arms, he looked the same as he was in the original series except that (like always) his eyes are green and the Omnitrix symbol on his shoulder is now green. In both his 11-year-old and 16-year-old incarnations, Four Arms appeared to have a second set of pectorals for his other set of arms. Four Arms does still wear the same fingerless gloves, the same black colored pants, and the same white and black stripped shirt as the original series except the sleeves are gone, showing a lot more muscles. The Omnitrix symbol is located on his left shoulder as always. When 16-year-old Ben in Omniverse used him, the black stripe on the top of his head is gone and the ponytail is gone as well. Now he has three short spikes on the top of his head and a mustache-looking design on his face. He wears a black colored tank top like shirt with one large green colored stripe in the middle, and the same black colored pants (just like in the Original Series). He does wear fingerless gloves like in the Original Series, but with green colored cuffs at the wrists of the gloves. His skin appears to have a lighter tone than it was in Ultimate Alien. The New Omnitrix symbol is also located on a green and white striped belt. See images below:
Special Abilities: The first ability of Four Arms is his enhanced strength! With this ability he can be able to lift things that are several times his very own weight and he can punch through any various resilient materials with ease (just like Hulk from the Marvel Universe). For example Four Arms can lift anything that’s as heavy as a weapon, from big rocks, which he can throw several feet away, to beams and pillars, which he can use as clubs. His strength can allow him to expand his jaws to bite metal or even damage it. His other three abilities show that he has pretty good enhanced reflexes, enhanced speed, and agility. The fourth ability that Four Arms uses is his sonic clap shock wave ability. The way that Four Arms demonstrates this ability is by creating powerful strong shock waves can be demonstrated by clapping all four of his hands together or by slamming all four of his fists on the ground pretty hard. Four Arms third ability is his enhanced jumping ability. This kind of ability can allow him to jump at least several times his own height, which is seven stories up in a single bound to be exact (just like Hulk can as well). Four Arms fourth ability is the high durability he has. This ability makes him almost fire proof, laser-proof, and being able to survive a fall if he fell from something that is pretty high above the ground. See Images below:
Weaknesses: One of Four Arms weakness is his bulking body because with all of that extra muscle mass he has it makes him relatively slow, and his size, likewise, makes using things or moving things designed for smaller species very difficult. Plus his size can make him a very easy target for any enemy he goes up against. His second weakness is getting a cold because if he does get infected by it his enhanced strength and stamina are suddenly weakened slightly and his skin color changes form the bright red to an orange shade color. He also can develop pungent hives in his armpits, which can be very smelly (so be sure to hold your nose). His third weakness is that because of his size he can get stuck in small spaces which is no fun. His fourth weakness shows that even though his skin is tough it’s not tough enough against electricity. His fifth weakness shows that when he was in a 4-year-old state his strength was not what it use to be. His sixth weakness was shown in the episode Night of the Living Nightmare. In that episode it shows that Four Arms can easily get stuck in material that’s sticky and it makes if hard for him to get out unless he can find an easier way to escape it. His final weakness was seen in the episode Many Happy Returns. In that episode when Four Arms was fighting against Princess Looma, even though he beat her in a fight the thing about his species is that female tetramans are traditionally stronger than males it did show at first that Looma still had the advantage over Four Arms even though she was defeated. Also another thing female tetramans are pledged to the male who defeats them in battle. His sixth weakness shows that Four Arms wasn’t strong enough to pull King Arthur’s sword excalibur from the stone. His final weakness from the episode The Ultimate Heist proves that Ultimate Spidermonkey is a lot stronger than Four Arms. See Image below:
