Azmuth's scientific creations and achievements have made him a respected scientist throughout the universe. Paradox calls him the smartest being in the universe, Azmuth demurred, saying he is the smartest being in three galaxies (arguably in five galaxies). He is also a trusted advisor to the Plumbers.
Azmuth was very pessimistic, unwilling to shut down the Omnitrix's self-destruct at first, despite it meaning the destruction of the universe, simply because he didn't believe the universe was worth saving. This is because he invented the Omnitrix so the aliens of the universe would have a better understanding of each other, but other people like Vilgax only wanted to use it as a weapon of war. In Alien Force, Azmuth has become less pessimistic and more serious, showing a no-nonsense personality in War of the Worlds. This is especially apparent in Map of Infinity, where he was dealing with a disaster of intergalactic proportions, and when the universe or galaxy is being threatened.
Azmuth is very paranoid, evidenced by the amount of work he puts into hiding his home from the rest of the universe. He is a bit impolite. He sometimes shows the quality of 'jerk'. He originally refused to repair Omnitrix in Ben 10: Secret of The Omnitrix and was willing to let the universe get destroyed.
But after everything, Azmuth is good at heart and always thinks about the betterment of the society.
Azmuth looks like a normal Galvan with senile traits. He has whiskers like long outgrowths coming out of his face.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Even by the super-intelligent Galvan standards, Azmuth's mental prowess is considered worlds apart from the rest of his race. He is well-regarded as the smartest being in the Universe (or at least 3 to 5 galaxies). He is often referred to by his Galvan peers as First Thinker.
Along with his intelligence, Azmuth is gifted with years of experience and knowledge gained thanks to his age.
Azmuth is a skilled inventor having created numerous inventions, his greatest being the Omnitrix.
Because he created the Omnitrix, Azmuth knows all about its functions so he has the potential to use the Omnitrixes more effectively than anyone else. In Primus, Azmuth briefly uses the Omnitrix himself to fight Vilgax. Despite being its creator, Azmuth has been shown have little skill fighting than Ben. Azmuth attributes this to being "a little out of practice."
Despite being the Omnitrix's creator, Azmuth has been shown have little skill fighting with it than Ben. Azmuth attributes this to being "a little out of practice."
Azmuth returned to Alien Force in Good Copy, Bad Copy. Azmuth revealed that Albedo used to be one of his assistants and he came to take the Omnitrix copy from Albedo. Azmuth states that only one Omnitrix is allowed in the universe (though later on, Azmuth began to create a second one).
In War of the Worlds, Azmuth and Paradox warn Ben that the Highbreed are conquering and destroying planets and their fleet was heading towards Earth. Galvan Prime was already destroyed by the Highbreed and its destruction would be the beginning of the end. Although he doesn't want Ben to fight, he realizes that there's no stopping him and activates the Master Control for the sake of the battle. When the Omnitrix was reset by the DNA wave Ben used to stop the Highbreed (locking the Master Control), Azmuth left to help rebuild Galvan Prime without reactivating it, telling Ben to "have fun figuring it out."
In The Vengeance of Vilgax, when Ben and Kevin tried to hack the Omnitrix, Azmuth contacts him telling him not to tamper with it, stating that he will learn how to activate the Master Control when the time is right. When an accident unleashes Chromastone, Goop, Spidermonkey, and Way Big from the Omnitrix, Azmuth instructs Ben to reabsorb the alien forms into the Omnitrix. Dissatisfied at what happened, Azmuth also tells Ben that he won't help him again.
In Primus, Azmuth wields the Omnitrix in order to protect Primus from Vilgax, but is defeated and Vilgax takes the Omnitrix from him. Azmuth himself attributes his defeat to his "skills being a little rusty." He is saved by Ben who manages to trick Vilgax by showing him how to use the Omnitrix. Ben gets Vilgax to transform into Goop allowing Ben to get the upper hand and remove the Omnitrix from Vilgax. In the end, even though Azmuth hasn't forgiven Ben for damaging the Omnitrix, he allows him to keep it anyway.
Azmuth reappears in The Final Battle. Myaxx informs him that the Ultimatrix was stolen. Myaxx also shows security footage of Ben, or someone who looks exactly like him, stealing the Ultimatrix; Albedo, to which Azmuth replied "No! Not him! Anyone but him.". In the later half of the episode, Azmuth answers Ben's plead for help. He explains to Ben that the Omnitrix was originally meant for Max. When Ben says he let Azmuth down, he agrees. Azmuth tells Ben that "winning isn't so easy without the Omnitrix", making Ben realize that the only way to defeat Vilgax would be to destroy the Omnitrix.
Azmuth returns to Ultimate Alien in Map of Infinity, right after Ultimate Aggregor defeated Ben and his team. He tells Ben and his group about the Map of Infinity, an item Ultimate Aggregor is planning to steal in order to go to a location called the Forge of Creation. He also mocks the Ultimatrix, saying it is "pathetic workmanship." He introduces Ben and the team to Galvan Mark II, Galvan Prime rebuilt. He later puts Max in a tube to replace his damaged nervous system caused by Ultimate Aggregor. Azmuth reveals that he is constructing a third Omnitrix. He also refuses to let Ben have it because he is too reckless and requires much patience and it's not completed anyway. He also thinks that adding an evolution feature to the Ultimatrix was a terrible idea, just "begging for trouble".
In Perplexahedron, Azmuth was not happy with Ben's failures over losing three pieces of the Map of Infinity; he told Ben where the final piece was.
In The Forge of Creation, Azmuth was still not happy with Ben's failing and losing all four pieces of the map; he scolds Ben and his team for letting Ultimate Aggregor beat them each time when they had four opportunities to stop him. After Paradox transforms Alien X back to Ben, Azmuth has an argument with Paradox about Ben and his friend's ability to save the universe this time. Azmuth also says that trusting Ben with the Omnitrix was a "grave mistake" though Paradox had said that it was not a mistake at all, and that he, Azmuth, knew the reasons why all too well. Azmuth resentfully begins to reveal that Paradox had told him that Ben was a legendary being born with incomprehensible, immeasurable power, and that he would someday do something amazing as it was his "grand destiny," but Paradox interrupted him, saying that there must be "no spoilers."
In The Transmogrification of Eunice, Azmuth is disappointed in Sunder and Ben's battle for the Unitrix and seeing Ben and Sunder fighting in a muddy area. He is also the one who hired Sunder to retrieve the Unitrix. He had told Ben and his team about the Omnitrix prototype called the Unitrix. He had an argument with Ben about Eunice's life but, after being impressed by Ben's strong defense over Eunice and his belief about his aliens, he agreed to a compromise and allowed her to live a free life as one of his assistants. He stated that he always needed help tending Primus.
In Simian Says, Eunice contacted Azmuth about the degradation of the Arachnichimp DNA sample on Primus; he angrily told her to send Voliticus Biopsis to get a fresh sample.
In The Ultimate Sacrifice, Azmuth saves Ben from death and frees the Ultimates from the Ultimatrix. Ben has regained Azmuth's trust, it seems, as he was willing to sacrifice himself for his aliens' freedom.
In Solitary Alignment, Azmuth becomes involved with the Forever Knights by claiming that the sword Sir George used to fight Diagon with is his, which leads Ben to question him about the first knight. Azmuth reluctantly agrees to tell his origins and one of his early inventions.
In The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2, Azmuth came to reclaim Ascalon and the Ultimatrix, and in return gave Ben the new Omnitrix after Ben proved himself worthy of having the Omnitrix. Azmuth didn't add the Ultimate Forms to the new Omnitrix, and nothing will replace them in Ben 10: Omniverse.
In Trouble Helix, Azmuth appeared in a flashback revealing his hand in the creation of the Galvanic Mechamorphs through his experiment called the Helix, in the intent of making Galvan B habitable. He also revealed he had been working for years on Malware's condition, a Galvanic Mechamorph whose life code corrupted and incomplete.
In Showdown: Part 1, Azmuth appeared again, assisting Ben in capturing Dr. Psychobos and Khyber's Dog. He appears in a flashback in which he warned Ben to not overuse Feedback, but Ben did not heed his warning and Feedback was lost from the Omnitrix.
In Showdown: Part 2, Azmuth helped plan together on how to stop Malware from taking over Galvan Mark II. He, along with Gwen and Rook, travels to the remains of Galvan B to find a solution while Ben and Kevin keep Malware busy. Azmuth eventually finds the helix which he believes could be beneficial. Azmuth is seen again bringing Feedback the helix so he can use its powers to defeat Malware. Azmuth also revealed that he brought the Galvanic Mechamorphs back to life and he watches as Feedback finally defeats Malware for good. Azmuth appears during 16 year old Ben's subconscious telling 11 year old Ben that Ben never learns anything just from winning and says that Ben could learn something from losing Feedback.
In The Frogs Of War: Part 2, Azmuth appeared in a flashback while Ben was telling everyone what happened to him. It was revealed that Azmuth saved Ben and unlocked Bullfrag for him in order for Ben to sneak aboard an Incursean ship.

Azmuth's Known InventionsEdit
|Unitrix||A prototype model of the Omnitrix. At first Azmuth intended to store the DNA in separate containers, however the idea was discarded for something that could store/hide/collect DNA, keep track of collected DNA, make it easier to safeguard and, if necessary, revive dead species more easily. (Primus, Voliticus Biopsis) The Omnitrix introduced the idea of walking in the shoes of other lifeforms. This prototype eventually led to the birth of Eunice.|
|Prototype Omnitrix||Azmuth's greatest invention. Allows the user to transform into many different aliens. Created as a device to allow one to understand other species better, its power was seen as a weapon by many, including Vilgax. Originally was to be entrusted to Max, but was found by Ben. Self-destructed in The Final Battle: Part 2 to prevent Vilgax, who had obtained it by forcing Ben into giving it to him, from using it.|
|Ultimatrix||The successor of the Omnitrix with most of the same features as the Omnitrix. Azmuth wasn't finished making it when it was stolen, completed, and modified by Albedo in The Final Battle: Part 1, who added an evolution feature that evolves aliens into their Ultimate form. Azmuth mentions that it's shoddy workmanship, likely a result of Albedo not being as skilled as Azmuth. He also cites the evolutionary function as "begging for trouble". It was removed by Azmuth in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2 so that he can give Ben his third Omnitrix. He later destroyed it.|
|Omnitrix||In Map of Infinity, Azmuth said he had been making yet another new Omnitrix. He mentions that he may give it to Ben in the near future, but states that Ben's maturity must increase and also it isn't ready for him. However, in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2, Azmuth reveals that the Omnitrix and Ultimatrix are just prototypes and he was working on the real Omnitrix six years ago. In the same episode, he cuts off the Ultimatrix and gives the Omnitrix to Ben as he has proved worthy enough for his new creation.|
|Codon Stream||DNA database.|
|Voliticus Biopsis||Mosquito-like creatures created by Azmuth to collect DNA from aliens for the Codon Stream. They live on Primus.|
|Primus||A planet created by Azmuth which contains the Codon Stream. Acts as a wireless transmitter to the Omnitrix and Ultimatrix. Its location can be changed to keep it hidden or in the case of being compromised..|
|Galvan Mark II||In The Final Battle: Part 1, Azmuth is seen speaking with Myaxx about Albedo and the Ultimatrix on Galvan Mark II. In Map of Infinity, he reveals it to be Galvan Mark II. In Showdown: Part 2, Azmuth explains that he designed Galvan Mark II to have a series of firewalls in case of viral attacks.|
|Ascalon||In Solitary Alignment, it is revealed that Azmuth was the one who created Ascalon and gave it to Sir George 1,000 years ago. He got the idea of making Ascalon after doing some star-gazing while observing a nearby planetary system in complete alignment. After the destruction of the Incursean homeworld by Ascalon and falling out between him and his girlfriend Zennith, Azmuth regrets inventing Ascalon and vowed to dedicate himself to peaceful sciences. It was given back to Azmuth by Ben in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2.|
|Helix||An experiment in the hopes of making Galvan B inhabitable for colonization. It lead to creating the Galvanic Mechamorphs and Malware. He had been working on creating a second helix to cure Malware's condition, but it was stolen and upgraded Malware having lasting effects to this day.|
|Galvanic Mechamorph species||In an experiment to make Galvan B habitable for colonization using his helix, he accidentally brought the Galvanic Mechamorphs into existence.|
- Azmuth's name comes from "azimuth," an angular measurement in a spherical 3 axis coordinate system.
- According to Dwayne, Azmuth was looking for Ben in The Final Battle: Part 2, because he started looking for him when the Ultimatrix was stolen.
- According to Derrick, green is Azmuth's favorite color.
- According to himself:
- Azmuth was just like Ben when he was young.
- Azmuth's only shame is that he has been unable to heal Malware of his pain.
- Despite being a Galvan, Azmuth seems to prefer open spaces away from technology.
- Azmuth's Bio-suit in Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix is similar to P'andor's and NRG's suit and has Clockwork's torso.
- Azmuth expects to live another 3,000 years.
- Azmuth indirectly brought about the formation of the Forever Knights by giving Ascalon to Sir George.
