    • Ben: (Grandpa Max and his friend spot something by a shadow) Wait, don't shoot! It's me, Benwooooooolf!!!

    • Ben: (looking at Kai performing the ceremonial dance) You know, I was hoping to see one of those before the summer ended. Gwen: Since when have you been interested in Native American Spiritual Dance? Ben: Only like forever, dweeb. It rocks!

    • Benwolf: Let's see what else I can wolf down! Ha, get it?

    • Grandpa Max: (astounded) An alien werewolf. Just when I thought this summer couldn't get any stranger.

    • (after the silver pendant fails to destroy the wolf creature) Wes: I don't understand, that should have worked. Kai: Grandpa, the pendant didn't work because, maybe we're not dealing with a Yenaldooshi. Benwolf: But, it bit me. Isn't that why I'm like this? (suddenly, Benwolf collapses to the ground, howls and undergoes one final transformation, and to his surprise, the Omnitrix logo appears on his chest)

    Notes (29)

    • Omnitrix Malfunctions: Ripjaws-Himself Stinkfly-Wildvine

    • Benwolf is the last alien transformation sequence we'll see.

    • This is the second episode where Ben mentions a possible alien fusion. This time he mentions XLRwolf.

    • This is the first and final appearance of Benwolf because he was never reused.

    • This was the episode that ended the Ben 10 Alien Showdown.

    Trivia (11)

    • Ben said that if he knew the Omnitrix can copy alien DNA from aliens by touching it, he can become them and that he would be an awesome Vilgax. But back in the episode, "Secrets" Vilgax did touch the Omnitrix to turn Heatblast back to Ben.

    • Ben had to go through this entire changing phase in order to finally transform into Benwolf's original form. This is what a werewolf does. What does an alien life-form have to do with mythical werewolfs?

    • Since Wes was a Plumber, he should've known about Ben and the Omnitrix; at the least, heard rumors of. For some reason, he was shocked when he saw Ben transform into Wildvine.

    • Pay Attention: This is the first and only episode where the transformation from making contact with an alien hasn't been instantaneous.

    • Look Closely: At the end of the of the episode, when Ben looked at the alien werewolf's silhouette on the Omnitrix, it looked different than it did when Ben looked at it after he reverted back to his human form.

    • Episode: Similarities This episode resembles the Teen Titans episode, "The Beast Within." Both Ben and Beast Boy were turned into ferocious beasts, had to face a villain who was also a ferocious beast, then were able to use their new power afterwards.

    • Benwolf: Transformation Ben transforming into a werewolf and returning to normal near to the end of this episode is just like one time when Martin Mystery got scratched by a werewolf.

    • Benwolf: Mouth Benwolf has a mouth that resembles the predator alien.

    • Wildvine: Tag. And you're it, Fangface. Fangface was the name of a cartoon werewolf.

    • Monuments: Canyon de Chelly The Canyon de Chelly, located in Arizona, is presently a national Monument. The Navajo Indians thought of this place as spiritual because it helps guide their souls to a better place.
