Heatblast is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Pyronite from Pyros.


Ben as HeatblastEdit

Heatblast is a magma-based lifeform whose body is composed of a bright yellow inner magma body covered by a dark red or brown rocks. As a fire-based entity, his body radiates high amounts of heat. His feet have a slight oval-like design with only two toes and one back toe. Heatblast's tongue is made of fire.[1]

4 year old Heatblast looks the same as 10 year old Heatblast in the original series, but with a much thinner body, oversized head and much higher-pitched voice.

In Ultimate Alien, Heatblast closely resembles Alan, only taller and not as skinny and slightly altered. His eyes were no longer connected to the fire on his head. The rocks over his body were darker, and their pattern was different, with fewer rocks covering his inner lava body. His voice sounds like Jetray's, except deeper.

In The Forge of Creation, 10 year old Heatblast was almost unchanged from his appearance in the original series. However, his eyes were not connected to the fire around his head, and his Omnitrix symbol is green.

In Omniverse, 16 year old Heatblast looks the same as in Ultimate Alien, only his eyes are once again connected to the fire on his head, like in the original series. He is taller and more muscular, his face's design is different and his shoulder plates are slightly tilted up.

11 year old Ben as Heatblast in Omniverse looks exactly the same as the 16 year old Heatblast, except for the fact that he is shorter and much less muscular then his sixteen year old self.

Heatblast wears the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

RAT TimelineEdit

Heatblast looks similar to the main timeline's Heatblast in the original series, though this version has cracks on the dark red parts on his body and his eyes are not connected to the flames on his head.

Ben 10,000 as HeatblastEdit

Heatblast looks similar to his original series design, but this version sports two miniature volcanoes on his shoulders and both his chest and body are bigger.

Gwen as HeatblastEdit

Heatblast is leaner, her chest is larger, and her face is longer and more curved. Her forearms are considerably skinnier than Ben's Heatblast.

Heatblast wears the Omnitrix symbol on her chest.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Heatblast has the ability to generate and manipulate intense heat and fire from his body. He can form fire into any shape that he chooses, commonly fireballs. He can enhance the fire in his hands for flaming punches.[2] Heatblast can breathe fire.[1]

Heatblast's fire can become hot enough to melt a tank,[3] melt a road and almost bury Vilgax in boiling tar,[2] and even burying Vilgax in the ground up to his shoulders.[4]

Heatblast can make his flames explosive, explaining why his fire tended to cause explosions on a regular basis.

When 4-year-old Heatblast had a temper tantrum his firepower was greatly magnified to the point that Gwen called it "supernova-hot" and the heat was so extreme that it flash vaporized the Fountain of Youth and destroyed a large portion of the cave they were in.[5]

Heatblast can create a small fire board on which he can ride at high speeds by launching fire backwards like an engine. On this board, he has enough skill to ride in a continuous circle.[6]

When infected with a cold virus, Heatblast's powers are reversed, his pyrokinesis becoming cryokinesis, and him being constructed of icy fire rather than regular fire.

Heatblast is fireproof, as well as heat resistant and invulnerable to magma. Interestingly, he is also cold resistant and ice proof.

According to Dwayne, Heatblast is capable of limited terrakinesis by channeling fire through the ground. One result of this capability is the ability to surf through the air on a board of rock.

Heatblast has enhanced strength and durability, enough to hold his own with his fists against Viktor, making the latter stumble several steps backwards. He can also survive being thrown through multiple buildings at high speed by Vilgax with no damage.

Heatblast can swim and use his powers underwater, but with a very low intensity.

If exposed to enough water or fire extinguishing substance, Heatblast's fire will be extinguished, though he can still heat up and reignite his fire in short amounts of time.

Sick Heatblast

When under the effects of a cold, Heatblast's body and flames turn to blue and give him cryokinesis (ability to create and control cold and ice). Despite these new powers, Heatblast works completely "nonfunctional" to his fiery nature and the cold still prejudiced his health, so it's still technically a "weakness", albeit Heatblast made excellent use of this newfound power in that episode.

Heatblast's fire attacks are useless against his natural predator, Crabdozer.

Due to his feet being made of fire, Heatblast can leave scorch mark footprints on certain floors.[7]


Ben (RAT Timeline)
Gwen 10
  • In Gwen 10, Heatblast wrote her name in the sky with fire, to Ben's chagrin (as he states, it took him a month to learn to do that).
Ben 10,000

  • In Survival Skills, Heatblast makes campfire, even though he is told not to go alien. Since he didn't keep his promise, Max and Gwen used him as a campfire while he was trying to make one with rocks.

Heatblast was unlocked before the events of Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 1 by scanning Alan Albright.[8]

Heatblast is one of the two aliens that are given from the beginning, Four Arms is the other, as you unlock combos you use him at his full strength. You will also need his abilities to run though fire and absorb it, and also to produce a rock to ride for a short distance in a fiery trail. Heatblast's special move is to create an orb of fire around himself, while another move creates a fiery tornado. The most powerful move is called "Armageddon" and features Heatblast ascending to the sky, off the screen, and raining fireballs upon his enemies.
