"Billions of beings on this planet, and the Omnitrix winds up on the wrist of a foolhardy youth."

"Well, like I told you're buddies, this thing doesn't come off. I've tried."

"Of course it doesn't. Its power utilizes alien DNA, which binds to the host's own genetic structure. It can not simply be removed like taking off a hat."

-Tetrax and Diamondhead

The Omnimatrix, or Omnitrix for short, is one of the most powerful devices in the universe with 1,000,912 samples of DNA the user may turn into at will.


The Omnitrix resembles a slimmer and sleeker watch-like shape with a white, black, and green wristband and the face of the dial becoming black and green. The inside of the hourglass symbol glowed in different colors during certain moments; these colors signify the mode that the Omnitrix was presently in. When Ben is selecting his aliens it shows the alien's hologram standing on the core.



Azmuth tries to think of something to create, to use his intelligence for peace and make up for his mistakes. While on Earth he studies Human philosophy and reads the story of Noah's Ark and gets inspired to create the Omnitrix hoping that Zennith would come back to him.

He recruits the help of Myaxx and a young prodigy named, Albedo to help him with the creation of the Omnitrix.


Azmuth hires a few Trenots to design and create the uniforms for the Omnitrix since their webs are nearly indestructible. As payment they want their DNA to be one of the first added to the Omnitrix.

Shortly after, Azmuth recruits his old friend Shyo, an adventurer that visits other planets for research, to collect DNA samples from every sapient species in the Milky Way Galaxy.


Azmuth comes to Shyo with the first functioning Omnimatrix. He wants Shyo to be the first one to try it. He turns into a Slig and it works flawlessly.

Vilgax grabbed Ben and Kevin before going in the portal. Vilgax removes the Omnitrix from Ben. A surge of energy hits Kevin which mutates him into all of the accessed aliens. Kevin's mind is clouded with rage and fights Vilgax in the Null Void. During the confusion Ben escapes with the Omnitrix. With the portal only being able to be open for a few more seconds Ben leaves Kevin in the Null Void. Ben considers this his greatest failure to this day.

Ben Tennyson

When the Omnitrix landed in Yosemite National Park it was found by a 10 year old Ben who accidentally put it on. He has defended the universe with it ever since.


Vilgax the Conqueror made Ben Tennyson take off the Omnitrix. If he didn't he would have killed his grandfather, Max Tennyson. Vilgax, armed with the Omnitrix, planned on taking over the world but was stopped when Ben, Max, Gwen, and the Plumbers stormed his ship and took him down.


Active Mode

When the Omnitrix glows green it is ready to be activated.

Select Mode

To select a transformation the user has to push in both of the buttons located vertically on the face plate. A random hologram is chosen to appear then the user may use the dial to scroll through the catalog of DNA samples.

Recharge Mode

When the Omnitrix glows red it has used up too much of its energy and needs to recharge and rest for about 5 minutes.

Capture Mode

When an uncatalogued DNA sample is present the Omnitrix will glow yellow and project a beam onto the DNA sample, collecting it.

Recalibration Mode

After the Omnitrix isn't on someone for a while it might recalibrate with a blue light when the next person puts it on to better fit the person wearing it.

Self-Destruct Mode

When activated the Omnitrix will glow and flash orange until it blows itself up. The activator can choose a time limit for when the device will explode. The shortest time limit is 30 seconds. This will cause the Omnitrix to detonate a small blast within itself destroying it. The longest time limit is 4 days. This will cause the Omnitrix to destroy the universe.


This function shuffles the unlocked transformations, making the user constantly shift from alien to alien.

Deactivated Mode

If the Omnitrix is taken off and not put on a new user it will shut down.

Life Form Lock

This feature can keep the user in a designated transformation for unlimited amounts of time.

Universal Translation

The Omnitrix can understand any known language in the universe.


The Omnitrix is linked with Ben's phone so he is able to contact people in and out of alien form.


The Omnitrix has a universe-wide locating system.

Body Cam

The Omnitrix is always recording video when it's user is in alien form.

Genetic Damage Repair

The Omnitrix can repair mutated organic life if the species is in the Omnitrix.


The Omnitrix can teleport itself and the wearer through Azmuth's teleportation channel.


The user can choose to make transformations locked. This means they cannot access them unless they say the code: 4317. So far the only one Ben has locked out is Alien X.

Master Control

This unlocks all 1,000,912 DNA sample to be used at anytime. The select and recharge mode along with the Life Form Lock are all deactivated as the user may transform between aliens mentally.

Fail Safes

Defensive Blast

If someone other than the present user tries to remove the Omnitrix it will send an electric blast at the attacker stunning them for a short amount of time.

Termination Prevention

If the user is about to die the Omnitrix's AI would sense it and automatically turn the user into whatever unlocked alien would help them survive.

  • *Azmuth has access to every feature of the Omnitrix but some features are just for him.
    • The Chronian DNA sample was removed shortly after being collected.
