Omniverse Description: When XLR8 was used by 11 year old Ben in Omniverse, he looked like what 16 year old Ben’s XLR8 except that he was a little shorter, the color of his shirt was white instead of the green color (from 16-year-old Ben’s XLR8), and has three strips instead of the four stripes form 16 year old Ben’s XLR8. Also the Omnitrix symbol is located on his chest. When 16-year-old Ben used him in Omniverse, he looked that same in Ultimate Alien expect he is slightly taller than usual. The white color on his shirt is now a green color (which now covers his entire neck). He has four blue stripes on his tail, the black balls on his feet are slightly bigger than usual, the helmet on his head is longer in the back and front, his clawed hands are also longer, and the visor on his helmet is a lot darker. XLR8’s voice (when he is talking) sounds a lot like Ben’s voice, except in a very fast talking, higher-pitched way. The New Omnitrix symbol is located on his chest. See images below:




Gwen as XLR8 DescriptionWhen Gwen 10 used XLR8 her version was a lot different. For example, her version is more upright and the face lacks the black markings that Ben’s has, replaced with freckles. She has pink eyes instead of green eyes and Gwen’s hairclips. She has a black helmet. The majority of her outfit is dark blue with a light blue section around her neck that goes down her chest in a V-formation, light blue stripes on her forearms and wrists, two light blue stripes on the end of her tail, and a light blue stripe on each of her legs where the outfit ends. Her hands are more human shaped with claws for fingers. She wears the Omnitrix symbol on her chest with a cat shape logo surrounding it. See image below:



Special Abilities: One of XLR8’s abilities is his enhanced speed. With this enhanced speed XLR8 can manipulate friction that can reach speeds of 500 mph within two seconds! It’s even revealed that in the episode The Unnaturals, XLR8 can move so quickly that somehow time appears to stand completely stand still. His enhanced speed to is even used to deliver attacks with a lot of rapid succession, such as excessively kicking or stabbing enemies. His third ability shows that XLR8 even use his speed ability to create creating a tornado (like Sonic and The Flash) that is capable of generating a centripetal vacuum powerful enough to lift small enemies or even giant ones like one of the mutated To’kustars off the ground. He does this by either running in a circular pattern or spinning at supersonic speeds. It is revealed that in the episode Store 23, XLR8 fourth ability shows that he has dexterity with being able think of a million combinations to which can be any possible codes on a padlock or a bomb in virtually seconds just like the Flash does from Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. XLR8’s fifth ability is enhanced reflexes. This ability allows him to dodge any kind attack with a little effort. His sixth ability is scissor-like clawed hands. He can use these to cut through any material like evil alien like plants for example. His seventh ability is that his speed can make him even run on walls and on water just like Dash from the The Incredibles movie can. In the episode The Krakken, XLR8 showed his eighth ability which is enhanced strength which he used to carry a multitude of enough fishermen and Gwen safely back to the shore of a lake with out even slowing down, even as well as greatly damaging an enemy like Exo-Skull with physical attacks for example, which are further enhanced by striking him at rapid succession. XLR8 also has two other abilities enhanced jumping (when he’s running at very a fast pace) and enhanced recovery. The recovery ability helps XLR8 recover from any injury faster than any other species. His eleventh ability is his X-Ray vision helmet that allows him to see though anything like Superman can. In the episode Back with a Vengeance, when Kevin 11 was pushed and almost fell off a cart, he used his XLR8 tail to hang on to the wire, revealing that XLR8’s tail is a prehensile tail just like a monkey’s tail. The ability was also used in the episode Ken 10, when Ben 10,000 as XLR8 used his tail showing a nullvoid egg. In the episode Monster Weather, XLR8’s final ability is being able to cling on to any surface, using either his clawed hands or agility, or being able to use both as a combination. See images below:

Weaknesses: One of XLR8’s weaknesses is that his speed doesn’t always work on any surface, like ice or strong adhesives for example. Those kinds of surfaces can slow him down. It’s revealed in the episode Rules Of Engagement that XRL8’s second weaknesses is his tail because if it’s being held down by something or someone than it can be very hard for him to try running away from his enemies. In the episode Ken 10, XLR8’s third weakness reveals that when he runs into something sticky and gets stuck there hard; it can be hard for him to get out (unless he’s speed is improved). XLR8’s third weakness was revealed in the episode Weapon XI: Part 2 when 11-year-old Ben tried to run away from 12-year-old Kevin but Kevin used Wildvine’s powers to trap XLR8 in vines. His fourth weakness was revealed in the episode And Then There Was Ben when Gwen as XLR8 tried to attack NWB (or No Watch Ben) as Wildmutt but he anticipated the attack and tripped her up. It was revealed in the Omniverse episode Third Times The Charm, that XLR8’s final weakness is being hyperactive like a kid in a sugar rush. When XLR8 is hyperactive it can be very difficult for him to be focused, as shown where he got bored of looking at magic books and started reading Sumo Slammers instead. See images below:
