Rectracable Tail Stinger
|Voice Actor||Dee Bradley Baker|
|First Appearance||Prisoner Number 775 is Missing|
ChamAlien has a slim body that resembles a large purple lizard with darker purple camo-esque spots all over his body and a short tail. He has three triangular eyes, the left being blue, the right red and the top green, but the red and blue eyes are the only ones that blink, while the green eye doesn't. The top of his head is purple-black, with a spike-shaped fin on the back of his head. He has four-fingered hands and three toes on his frog-like feet. He also has a wide mouth with sharp teeth.
ChamAlien wears the Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.
Powers and Abilities
ChamAlien's main ability is his camouflage; he is capable of blending in with the color of his surroundings with such effectiveness that he appears invisible.
ChamAlien is very agile, quick, flexible and slippery, making him very difficult to grab, and can climb walls with ease.
ChamAlien has a long, retractable black barb that can come out of the tip of his tail.
ChamAlien has enhanced strength and durability, enough to push a car and a huge truck several yards away.
Although ChamAlien appears to turn invisible when he camouflages, he actually just changes his color, so his shadow can still be seen. As such, any place filled with too many bright lights can be a disadvantage.

- When Ben first transformed into ChamAlien he yelled "Overkill" instead of his real name as a joke.
- ChamAlien's appearance is similar to that of the Randall Boggs from "Monsters, Inc." and "Monsters University", and the Cheshire Cat from "Alice in Wonderland" (referring to his smile), his body shape also resembles Oscar from Oscar's Oasis. His three eyes are a reference to the 1953 movie adaptation of The War of the Worlds. The Martians in the movie have three eyes that are just like ChamAlien's. The colors Red, blue and green eyes are the basic colors the human eye perceives.
- The way ChamAlien's shadow remains visible when ChamAlien is camouflaging is similar to the Kanohi Huna from Bionicle, which has the same effect.
- ChamAlien is one of Ben's alien forms who is not in the lineup of aliens in the Ultimate Alien intro, the others being Fasttrack, Eatle, Ultimate Wildmutt, Clockwork, Shocksquatch, Jury Rigg and Ultimate Way Big, although this is due to their existence not being known until season 2 and 3.
- According to Derrick J. Wyatt, there was a bit they talked for ChamAlien to appear in Universe Vs. Tennyson where Ben would use him to spy on a Galvan lawyer named Chadzmuth, but the whole scene was dropped because the story was changed.
