Recalibrated Omnitrix
The Prototype Omnimatrix (often referred to as the Omnitrix) was a watch-like device that attached to Ben's wrist in the first episode of the series and is the device that the series and franchise revolved around.

The Omnitrix was created by Azmuth as a tool of peace in an act of repentance following the destruction caused by his previous creation,Ascalon a weapon of terrible power. The device had a twofold purpose: it would promote inter-species understanding by allowing other beings to experience different ways of life, and it would also serve as a repository for the DNA of over a million different intelligent species, preserving them in the event that any of them should ever become extinct. Secretly, Azmuth also had another reason for creating the Omnitrix: he hoped that his estranged lover Xennith, who had left him as he created Ascalon, would learn of his change and return to him.

The Omnitrix was destroyed in The Final Battle: Part 2 in order to prevent Vilgax from using it.

Azmuth revealed in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2 that this Omnitrix was just a prototype, and that he had started working on the thirdOmnitrix ever since Ben found the prototype.

BackgroundEditEdit

[1]The Original OmnitrixIn the first form that Ben encountered, the Omnitrix looked like a very big wristwatch, primarily black and grey in color, with a grey (or black) dial in the middle (like a watch face) which has a green hourglass shape (the intergalactic "peace" symbol, also on Plumber's Badges and Galvan Prime) on it. This symbol design, however, was a scratch guard, which fell off after Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens.

When it recalibrated, the Omnitrix gained a more watch-like shape, a greenwristband, became smaller and sleeker, and the face dial became black and green. The inside of the hourglass shape glows in different colors at certain moments. These colors signify the mode that the Omnitrix is presently in.

ModesEditEdit

  • Active Mode
  •  Recharge Mode
  •  Capture Mode
  •  Self-Destruct Mode
  •  Recalibration Mode


  • Active Mode(Recalibrated Omnitrix)

1 of 2Add photoActive Mode is the Omnitrix's default mode. Actual usage time is unknown (about 10-20 minutes). The Omnitrix seems to time out sooner if it's taxed by activities with a lot of moving, like fighting. However, if regular transformations are tampered with, the user can't always turn back. After the Omnitrix recalibrated, the symbols on the aliens were also of the green color, and located on their chests (Dwayne said this was because the Omnitrix was working properly).




FeaturesEditEdit

[2]The Omnitrix re-calibrates itself*The Omnitrix can display nine colors, each meaning something different:

    • Green: Active Mode
    • Red: Recharge Mode
    • Yellow: Capture Mode
    • Blue: Recalibration Mode
    • Purple: Controlled
    • Orange: Self Destruct Mode (original Omnitrix form)
    • Grey: Deactivated
    • Black: Stop Mode
    • Pink: Under Spell effect
  • The Omnitrix acts as a wireless receiver for the Codon Stream. By accessing the Codon Stream, the Omnitrix rewrites the user's DNA and transforms them into one of the 1,000,910 DNA samples. In order for the user to change size, matter is created from energy or reconstituted to energy as needed.
  • The Omnitrix has two known display modes:
    • The mode in the original series provides black silhouettes of the aliens.
    • The mode in Alien Force provides dark green holograms of the aliens.
    • According to Dwayne, by changing the settings on the Omnitrix, both display modes can be used in both of the Omnitrix's forms.
  • The Omnitrix functions as a GPS as shown in The Final Battle: Part 1.
  • The Omnitrix can alter the clothing of the wearer to better fit the alien forms. Ben lost this function in Alien Force because the Omnitrix recalibrated. Now, nanomachines break them down and store them until his transformation ends.
  • The Omnitrix alters its size to fit the user's size, as shown in The Final Battle: Part 2.
  • The Omnitrix can be controlled by voice, called Voice Command.
Command Function
Access Master Control Unlocks the Master Control. Only works to Azmuth's voice.
Decouple Omnitrix Command Code: 000 - Release Coupling - 0 Removes the Omnitrix.
Omnitrix Self Destruct in (time): Command code: 000 - Destruct 0 Activates Self-Destruct Mode.
Abort Self Destruct Code 10 Deactivates Self-Destruct Mode.
Omnitrix Reset Code 10 Activates Reset Mode.
Omnitrix Abort Reset Code 10 Deactivates Reset Mode.
Command Function Override Code 10 Overrides function.
  • When the user is transformed, an Omnitrix symbol appears on the chest which can be used to switch to another alien while already transformed into another alien. The symbol is actually the Omnitrix itself, appearing in this form because many species don't have wrists.
    • In the original series, the Omnitrix symbol appears in random places, this is due to it not working correctly.
  • When transformed into an alien in the original series, the Omnitrix adapts the user's clothing to the alien.
  • When transformed, the Omnitrix protects the user from negative effects, like possession by an Ectonurite, the effect of Corrodium or Dr. Animo's mutant ray.
    • The same applied to Kevin during his second mutation, as it came from the Omnitrix too.
  • If someone tries to tamper with the Omnitrix against the user's will, the Omnitrix creates a large feedback pulse for defense.
  • The Omnitrix has AI (Artificial Intelligence).
  • The Omnitrix can show a database image of all aliens unlocked.
  • The Omnitrix can create a hologram map, which is similar to the one in Plumber's Badges.
  • The Omnitrix has a 2-way communication system with Plumber Badges.
  • The Omnitrix has a built-in Universal Translator.
  • The Omnitrix can teleport the user through Azmuth's teleportation channel.
  • When exposed to an electromagnetic interference, the Omnitrix can cause unintentional transformations and the Omnitrix will be unable to deactivate until the source of the interference is gone.
    • This is how Tiffin was unintentionally giving off an electromagnetic interference that caused the Omnitrix to malfunction, turning Ben into Rath.
    • This can work in reverse, rapidly changing the user from one form to another until someone/something stops it.
  • The Omnitrix is able to repair genetic damage, such as turn DNAliens back to normal and remove theXenocyte.
  • The Omnitrix can genetically manipulate DNA or reprogram a species' DNA (like fuse DNA from different species of aliens).
  • According to Dwayne, the Omnitrix in Alien Force is green because it is working correctly, which also meant it wasn't working as it should during the original series. The Omnitrix is in the center around the chest area on every alien in Alien Force is for easy access. The symbol was put in different places on some aliens (head onDitto, back on Grey Matter, etc.) in the original series which was a side effect of the Omnitrix not working properly (which explains why all the symbols were moved to the chest in Alien Force since it is now working right).
    • According to Derrick J. Wyatt, the Omnitrix in the original series had a scratch guard that Ben didn't know how to remove. It fell off after Destroy all Aliens.
  • If the Omnitrix's faceplate cover is broken off, the result is DNA hybrids.

TriviaEditEdit

  • The Omnitrix is Level 20 technology.
  • According to Vilgax, the Omnitrix is supposed to be the ultimate weapon.
  • Azmuth invented the Omnitrix so that every being in the universe can have better understanding at each other. In Alien Force, he also reveals that Omnitrix was also invented to preserve intelligent life in the Milky Way Galaxy and restore them should they ever become extinct. Azmuth also compares the Omnitrix with Noah's Ark and Ben with Noah.
  • The Omnitrix was originally intended for Max and was programed to work for his DNA, since Ben is Max's grandson the close genetic match is what allowed him to use it.
  • Vilgax had the Omnitrix four times, including once during Back With a Vengeance, once during Primus, once during Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 2 and once during The Final Battle: Part 2 .
  • The Omnitrix's voice-activated self-destruct sequence is the same code from "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock" that James T. Kirk used to activate the Enterprise's one minute self-destruct sequence (000 destruct-0).
  • The Omnitrix changes the aliens' eyes to match the wearer's eye color. This can be turned off.
  • The Omnitrix's voice is identical to Ben's.
  • The Omnitrix cannot transform the wearer into another of its own species.
  • The last alien ever used with the Omnitrix was Swampfire, when Vilgax transformed his Bioids into Swampfire to destroy Ben, but the Omnitrix was destroyed before they had a chance to cause any harm due to the activation of the S.D.M. by Ben's voice command.
  • Ben's alternate timeline son, Kenny, gained his own Omnitrix for his tenth birthday (with 10 aliens accessible selected by Ben). It was revealed in the Ben 10 Enhanced Marathon that Kenny's Omnitrix was created by Ben using the brain power of his smartest aliens: Grey MatterBenvicktor and Brainstorm.
  • Unlike Recharge Mode and Capture Mode, Recalibration Mode makes only the hourglass change color. Not the pop-up button or four code buttons.
  • The device used by Megamind in the homonym movie to change his body into human forms is similar to the Omnitrix.
  • It was revealed in The Secret of Chromastone that when the Omnitrix unlocks DNA it keeps some of the alien's powers locked. This was shown when Ben and the gang discovered that Chromastone can fly. This can be turned off.
  • According to Derrick J. Wyatt, the Galvan were the first species to be added to the Codon Stream.[1]
  • According to Derrick, there were technical glitches in the second Omnitrix and Ultimatrix that limited the positioning of the Omnitrix during transformations. This actually caused interference with the transformations such as power glitches that would cause random flight and abilities not native to the alien species Ben changed into, as well as leaving all the aliens naked and cold. Azmuth has reformatted and corrected these errors in the new Omnitrix.[2].
  • According to Derrick, the reason the Omnitrix symbol was white in the original series, but never again, is that there was just a protective plastic scratch guard that Ben never realized needed to be removed. It fell off just after Destroy All Aliens.[3]
  • This Omnitrix can be synchronized with another Omnitrix even without the user's intent.
