End of Peace is the first episode of Ben 10: Negative Rising.
1 MONTH EARLIER
Ben continues to climb up Mount Everest.
(Ben, shivering): COME BACK HERE, ANIMO!
(Doctor Animo, on a hovercraft): Ha, you are freezing to death, while I, Doctor Animo, am perfectly fine!
(Ben): D-d-don't push it.
Ben attempts to transform, but loses his grip.
(Doctor Animo): Goodbye, Benjamin.
He fires a rocket at the mountain, and Ben begins to fall.
(Ben): I hate the universe.
Ben transforms into Jetray and flies up to Animo's hovercraft.
(Doctor Animo): An Aerophibian, what a nice specimen.
Jetray fires a laser at Animo's hovercraft, causing it to explode as a small escape pod shoots out of it.
(Jetray): Oh no you don't!
He chases after the pod and grabs it.
(Doctor Animo, muttering): CURSE YOU BEN TENNYSON.
(Jetray): Oh be quiet, Animo.
(Doctor Animo): This isn't the last you've seen of me, Ben Tennyson. I, Doctor Animo, shall return, and seek my revenge on you!
(Jetray): Good luck like that.
Ben is at a Mr. Smoothy, using a video chat to communicate with Max.
(Max): How's Rook doing?
(Ben): Grandpa, I don't know. Go ask him.
(Max): THAT'S IT! I'M GETTING YOU A NEW PARTNER!
Max ends the video chat.
(Ben, muttering to himself): What the fuq Grandpa..
Ben starts to walk away and stops.
(???): Hello, Tennyson.
The person disappears.
(Ben): What was that about..
Ben looks at a distress signal on his Omnitrix.
(Ben): Great, the old factory..
Ben transforms into Fasttrack and runs off.
(Fasttrack): I FEEL LIKE SONIC THE HEDGEHOG.
Ben quickly arrives at the factory, only to find it completely deserted.
(Fasttrack, reverting back): Wha..?
Ben picks up a piece of the rubble.
(Ben): These markings are WAY too familiar.
He walks over to a control panel, which seems to have been slashed by claws.
(Ben): Did Rath do this?
Please note that wouldn't Ben have remembered doing that? I mean, even if sleep-walking from OS is the case..come on.
Ben attempts to press a button on the panel, but is unable to do so.
(Ben, muttering): Circuit's jammed..
A figure emerges from the shadows.
(???): Hello again, Mr. Tennyson.
(Ben, turning around): YOU AGAIN! Who are you?
(???): I am Xarlek.
(Ben): What, is that French or something?
(Xarlek): No, you weak-minded fool!
(Ben): Harsh. I'm assuming you did this?
(Xarlek, smirking): You are correct.
(Ben, reaching for the Omnitrix): Why?
(Xarlek): Ahh ah ah, no transformations yet.
(Ben): Oh yeah? Why?
Xarlek pulls up his sleeve, to reveal the Nemetrix.
(Ben, shocked): The Nemetrix, but..how? I-
(Xarlek): You took it from Khyber after you defeated him? Oh no, Tennyson, that was a decoy, I stole the real Nemetrix from him immediately after.
(Ben): Dude, you are kinds of messed up.
(Xarlek): Thus is the price of power.
Ben transforms into Cy-X.
(Xarlek): A Trionkitical? I'm excellent with that species!
(Cy-X): I was going for Ditto..
Xarlek slams the dial on the Nemetrix, transforming into a large beast.
(Cy-X): PLEASE tell me you're Ditto's predator..
Technoroid grabs Cy-X and starts to tear off his armor.
Cy-X transforms into Humungousaur and punches Technoroid.
(Humungousaur): Ready to surrender yet?
(Technoroid): Are you joking?
Technoroid transforms into Tyrannopede and stomps on Humungousaur.
(Humungousaur, timing out): Not..cool..
(Tyrannopede, reverting back): For you.
(Ben): I'm not going to just let you win.
(Xarlek): Of course you aren't.
(Ben): Wha- Where'd he go?
Ben runs out of the factory.
Ben picks up another piece of rubble.
(Ben): Maybe the Plumbers know what this stuff is.
Ben transforms into Jetray and flies off.
