Ditto ben 10

Ditto's debut

While serving a prison sentence, Dr. Animo is brought a component by a seagull, which is the last piece he needs for his transmodulator. Animo transforms the seagull into a mutant creature and uses it to escape, while swearing to take his revenge on Ben.

On a trip at the beach, Ben annoys Gwen and Max with his thoughtless playing. Ben is then attacked by the seagull, and discovers a new alien form named Ditto. Ben discovers Ditto's power, the ability to make his own clones, and manages to restrain the seagull, only for it to escape. Ben then uses the Ditto form for fun, playing pranks on Gwen, and playing basketball with his copies. After an argument about one of them making a foul, one Ditto wanders off. Dr. Animo then appears, capturing the Ditto and taking him to a sunken ship, in hopes of exploiting his alien DNA for his own evil purposes.

The others realize too late that Animo has kidnapped a fourth Ditto clone. The five (three Dittos plus Grandpa Max and Gwen) hijack a ship to mount a rescue, They also discover that the Dittos can't turn back into Ben unless they're all in one place at the same time.

Meanwhile, at Animo's base, an abandoned ship wrecked oil tanker, Animo states that he plans to combine Ben's alien DNA with his own mutants to "lead earth into a glorious new phase of evolution" and begins by extracting samples from the clone.

Meanwhile, on the ship, several weaknesses are discovered involving the clones, if one feels pain they all feel the same pain, plus they seem incapable of working together.

Back at Animo's base, Animo deduces what the clone is capable of as well as finding out that inside Ben's Alien DNA is the DNA of his entire arsenal of aliens. Ben escapes by provoking one of Animo's mutants into breaking his cell.

Ben finally turns back to normal and just in time to fend off Animo's giant mutated squid as Upgrade by taking over the tanker. Ben discovers to his horror that not only has Animo gained full access to Ben's arsenal but has combined Lepidopterran DNA and Splixson DNA to create an army of self replicating Mutant Lepidopterrans. Animo decides to destroy the nearby town as a show of force.

Ben realizes that if he kills one of the clones, he'll kill them all. He transforms into Ditto again and defeats Animo by crashing one of the clones into a speed boat, killing them all at once. Animo is handed over to the police and Grandpa Max states that he deleted all of Animo's computer files so if Animo does escape, he'll be back to square one and have none of Ben's aliens at his disposal again.
