The Drones are robot minions created by Vilgax to serve him. Vilgax created them because no one else dared to be around him.
The drones are robotic rather than organic and are red or orange in color.
Types of Drones
These small, weak, UFO-shaped drones were the most commonly seen drones in the original series. They were capable of flight and had several small limbs armed with lasers and blades. They could also fuse with organic creatures.
They are capable of firing laser beams out of their robotic arms.
They are not particularly durable, as Wildmutt was able to destroy them with relative ease in And Then There Were 10. In the same episode, Gwen destroys a drone using a shovel, saving Ben because the Omnitrix ran out of power.
They are red with grey limbs and can see 360 degrees due to their movable vision.
Roughly 40 feet tall with more humanoid features and three insectoid legs. They possess great strength and large claws, can spawn Basic Drones from their shoulders, can shoot laser blasts, and spin their legs to make a mini-tornado.
Small humanoid drones that are barely used for combat, and usually seen on Vilgax's ship. They are capable of speech, unlike other drones, and possess laser guns, grenades, and jet packs.
Slightly larger than the Basic Drone, and barely any different in appearance, though Mechadroids have recognizable faces and spider-like legs rather than the Basic Drone's limbs. They are able to merge with machines in order to gain more abilities, such as attaching a tank to itself to use its cannon, and for each machine merged with, they grow larger and stronger.
Humanoid drones that are larger than the normal drones. They are more durable and carry laser cannons.
Robots that have the heads of the humanoid drones, but have bigger bodies with pincer-like arms and legs. They are capable of flight in atmosphere and outer space. Their pincer limbs can cut through space pods and have laser cannons.
Their weapons are scythes, lasers, drills, bombs, and photon arrays. These drones can merge with an organic life form as shown in The Alliance and Vilgax can also telepathically control the merged signal.
