  • Episode Description
  • At a city, Ben, Gwen, and Grandpa Max are waiting outside a video game store to purchase the newly-released Sumo Slammer video game. Gwen and Grandpa Max go the book store, but when they return to check on him, Four Arms comes out of the store by force. They return to the RV, and find that Ben is already there. Gwen yells at Ben for what he's done, but he has no clue of what she's talking about. But as she gives direct evidence that Four Arms was attacking the city, Ben heads out to find the perpetrator, using the identity of his aliens to ruin his current reputation as a hero.moreless

  • Quotes (24)

    • Kevin: (as Heat Blast; to Diamond Head) Why don't you cry about it? Or are you gonna run and tell on me to your Grandpa Max or that smart-mouthed cousin of yours?

    • Kevin: (to Diamond Head) It's payback time, partner. Everything 50/50. I do the crime, you do the time!

    • Diamond Head: You'll never get away with this! Kevin: Wrong, YOU'LL never get away with this! I'm not me; I'm you, remember?

    • Four Arms: Let him go, Kevin. This is about you and me. Kevin: (as Diamond Head) Sounds good to me.

    • Ben: Those guys don't stand a chance against Kevin. I have to stop him.

    Notes (27)

    • This is the second time in the series when Ben goes alien three times, the first was in "Lucky Girl."

    • This is the first episode in which someone calls Diamond Head a walking chandelier. Steel says the line after Kevin escapes using Stinkfly.

    • The noise the button in the Rustbucket makes when Max presses it to deploy the grappling hook and line is one tone of the tone used for various controls and buttons in the original Star Trek series.

    • Main Ally Bio: Lt. Steel - Lt. Steel is the head of SACT, which stands for Special Alien Capture Team. He has had many encounters with Kevin, who was posing as the Omnitrix aliens at the time. At first he is very suspicious of Ben and his family, but later allows them to come and go as they please. Ben ends up saving him from Kevin while in alien form. Steel returns the favor by having his troops fire on Kevin, realizing that Ben is not a bad guy. His appearance is very similar to Duke from G.I. Joe.

    • Main Allies: Lt. Steel.

    Trivia (19)

    • Grey Matter and XLR8 are the only aliens that are not used or mentioned.

    • Look Closely: Kevin's versions of the Omnitrix's aliens do not have the Omnitrix logo on their body.

    • Look Closely: If you look closely, Kevin's version of Four Arms has slightly lighter skin. (This carries over to Kevin's amalgam form.)

    • Look Closely: When Lt. Steel picks up his two-way radio to tell them only to fire on his mark only, look at his watch. It appears to have a very similar marking to the Omnitrix.

    • Look Hard: Kevin's Heat Blast appearance in this episode is much different than in the episode "Kevin 11."

    Allusions (5)

    • Kevin 11: Form Kevin becomes a combination of Ben's aliens, just like the Master of Games became a combination of teenage superheroes in the Teen Titans episode "Winner Take All."

    • Kevin: Appearance Kevin's appearance at the end of this episode is similar to the Digimon Kimeramon, which, coincidentally, is also an amalgamation of ten creatures.

    • Ben: Nobody is going to ruin my reputation... but me. This is something Coop from Megas XLR would normally say. For example: "Nobody is gonna destroy Jersey City! But me..."

    • Kevin: Venom Kevin was a lot like Venom, from Spider-Man. He hates Ben (like how Brock hates Spider-Man) and has all the same powers.

    • Ultimate Green Goblin: Battle The finale of the battle between Four Arms and Kevin is similar to the conclusion of the opening arc of "Ultimate Spider-Man," in which a battle on a bridge is interrupted by the authorities, who shoot the villain. Both Kevin and the Goblin fell into the water, and both had their survival hinted at by bubbles on the surface.
