    Notes (45)

    • We learn on the pop=up trivia version of this movie that Ben knows how to fly the little alien pod that Tetrax let's him use by videogames for his hand-coordination and for shooting laser beams from tap dance lessons that his mom made him take, but he never admits it.

    • We learn in the pop-up trivia version of this movie that Way Big has no home world and is an alien that is created by random cosmic storms.

    • On the pop-up trivia version of this movie, we learn that Vilgax escapes the null-void from a portal that leads to an unknown planet.

    • Way Big was revealed to Ben by Azmuth with a deliberate transformation to defeat Vilgax's elite force.

    • Omnitrix Malfunctions: Stinkfly-Grey Matter XLR8-Wildmutt

    Trivia (20)

    • This is the first alien mistransformation in which it causes Ben to turn into more than one alien.

    • Gwen stated that Gluto's species had the power to regenerate from even the tiniest particle of their former being, but when Gluto came back, he had the metal base on that helped him to walk around. There should be no way he could replicate that.

    • Think Back: At the final battle scene, there are robots that are like the ones Ben fought in "And Then There Were Ten", but slightly bigger.

    • Look Closely: When Tetrax says, "Some of them, lots of reasons" at Incarcecon, he walks by many aliens, and one standing by SixSix has an Omnitrix symbol on its chest, this may mean he is a plumber, as in the Alien Force series, they have badges that look like an Omnitrix symbol.

    • Look Closely: You can see Gluto blushing when Gwen shows interest in the technology he was explaining to her.

    • Vilgax's Drones Vilgax upgrades his drones to become bulkier and more powerful, similar to how the CIS upgraded their Battle Droids in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

    • Eye Guy Eye Guy, Ben's new alien, seems to be based off of the Greek mythological figure, Argus (all eyes). His entire body was covered with eyes. When his head was chopped off by Hermes, his eyes were placed on the head goddess Hera's favorite bird, the peacock, which explains the eyes of the peacock's tail.

    • Tetrax's Computer The way Tetrax uses his computer in the ship looks like Aelita in a tower from the TV show Code Lyoko.

    • Vilgax's Army Vilgax's drones move and fight similar to the way Slade's robots do on Teen Titans.

    • Negative Energy When Ben unleashed the negative energy from the Omnitrix to disrupt Vilgax's robots, it was similar to Transformers The Movie, where Rodimus Prime unleashed the Matrix's power to destroy the inside of Unicron.
