  • Quotes

    • (Kevin turns back, he is in pain)
      Kevin: I've got a headache like you wouldn't beli-
      (notices that everyone is looking at him)
      Kevin: What?
      Gwen: You're human again.
      (Kevin looks at himself to see that he is human again)
      Max: It must have been the Omnitrix that was keeping you in that form. Once it was destroyed...
      Kevin: I'm normal?
      Gwen: Let me show you.
      (she kisses him)
      Ben: (sarcastically) That was a nice little moment. Why'd they have to do that?
      Gwen: Victory kiss.

    • Gwen: What happened to Vilgax?
      Ben: I didn't see him get out, but he's survived worse.
      Kevin: He could come back.
      Ben: If he ever does, it's hero time!

    • Vilgax: Fire's not so useful, now that we're in my element.
      Ultimate Swampfire: A sinking ship is your element? That explains sooo much!

    • Vilgax: The Tennyson family, and their pet juvenile delinquent.
      Kevin: "Juvenile"? I'm gonna be eighteen a year from next Tuesday!
      Gwen: Your birthday's next week, and you didn't even tell me?
      Kevin: It's no big deal.
      Gwen: I don't have time to pick out a present.
      Vilgax: I wouldn't worry myself, girl. None of you will live to see the day!

    • Vilgax: It's going to be glorious, Albedo.
      Albedo: Pardon me for not breaking into applause.
      Vilgax: Of all the worlds I've conquered, this one will be the sweetest.
      (the good guys teleport in)
      Grandpa Max: There's an old Earth expression about not counting your chickens before they're hatched!

    • Azmuth: You are a fool.
      Ben: You don't hear me arguing.

    • Vilgax: You've won so many battles, but the war is mine. Bow down before me.
      Ben: You've got the Omnitrix, Vilgax. Don't press your luck.
      Vilgax: Still defiant. Why? I have beaten you, Ben Tennyson. You have nothing.
      Grandpa Max: He's got friends!

  • Notes

    • The new series is called Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.

    • It is revealed in this episode that Ben has access to the Omnitrix's self destruct sequence via voice command, which was most likely given to him by Azmuth as a last resort just in case the Omnitrix fell into the wrong hands.

    • Apparently, when those of Vilgax's species are submerged in salt water, they transform into giant squid-like creatures.

    • The self-destruction of the Omnitrix causes Kevin to finally return to normal, as it was the Omnitrix's energies that had been keeping him in his mutant form all along.

    • Vilgax's goal of having an entire army powered by the Omnitrix (first mentioned in the Ben 10 season one finale "Secrets") finally comes to fruition.

    • The Omnitrix is destroyed and Ben acquires the Ultimatrix in its place.

    • Alien Forms Used:

      1. Swampfire
      2. Ultimate Swampfire
      3. Jet Ray

      Alien Forms Used by Albedo:
      1. Ultimate Humungousaur

      Alien Forms Used by Vilgax:
      1. Humungousaur
      2. Diamondhead
      3. Lodestar
      4. Spidermonkey
      5. Swampfire

  • Allusions

    • In the climax of this episode, Ben openly admits he doesn't deserve his trademark jacket, since it "belongs to a hero". That's similar to what Nigel Uno said in the climax of the Codename: Kids Next Door TV movie Operation Z.E.R.O. when he openly admits he doesn't deserve his trademark sunglasses.

    • Star Trek
      The self-destruct command that Ben programmed into the Omnitrix is the same as the final part of the auto destruct sequence Captain Kirk (William Shatner) used on the starship U.S.S. Enterprise. The command code for the 30 second countdown is 0-0-0-Destruct-0. This was first seen in the episode "Let This Be Your Last Battlefield". The auto destruct was what eventually destroyed the Enterprise in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984).

    • The way Vilgax transforms in water and became a squid is much like Phelphor becoming an octopus in water from Chaotic: M'arrillian Invasion.
