Zombozo's return

Meanwhile, Ben's old enemy Rojo and her new biker gang are robbing a train. So Gwen, Kevin and Ben, as Rath, defeat them. They are praised for stopping them, until Max shows up in Kevin's jet. He tells them that ever since Ben's identity is revealed, some of his old enemies are returning for revenge and hunting down his family. Now Ben, Gwen, and Kevin have to protect Ben's parents at all costs. Meanwhile, another one of Ben's enemies, Zombozo, has teamed up with Charmcaster, Vulkanus, and Sevenseven to get their revenge on Ben. Zombozo buried someone's remains and now plans on targeting Ben's dad, Carl.

Zombozo, Charmcaster, and Vulkanus flatten Carl's tire to keep him busy, but soon Ben (who has forgotten about Zombozo) and his friends arrive and battle the villains. Ben manages to defeat them as Swampfire and saves his dad, without him knowing the dangers. Zombozo then targets Ben's mom again at Mr. Smoothy's and attacks her there. He shocks Gwen and gets her dizzy, who was trying to protect her, and kidnaps Sandra.

Ben, Gwen, and Kevin go to Zombozo's hideout to save Ben's mom. Ben fights Vulkanus, Kevin fights Charmcaster, and Gwen fights Zombozo. Kevin manages to defeat Charmcaster and her rock minions while Ben defeats Vulkanus and his pick-axe army as Ultimate Big Chill. Sandra's trapped on a tight-rope, strapped with two bombs and holding a metal pole to keep her balance. Gwen is tied up in tight streamers next to a pillar. Zombozo has shown Gwen where she is, and gets angry that Zombozo is trying to cruelly cause Sandra's death. She breaks free off screen and transforms into her dormant Anodite form and begins growing to giant size, while threatening him to leave the Tennyson family alone and to spread the message to all the other villains. She saves Sandra unknowingly and lets Zombozo go to inform the villians, then reverts back to her human form off screen. After that, Gwen and Sandra are found sitting on a bench, with Gwen eating candy floss. She then offers Sandra some, but Sandra says that processed sugar is poison. Ben and Kevin show up, since Gwen called them. Ben asked about Sandra, and Kevin asked about Zombozo. As Gwen was about to take a bite on her candy floss, she pauses and says that they do not have to worry about him any more. Gwen then says that they came to an understanding, smiling.

Naming and Translations

Language Name Origin
Portuguese (Brazil) Ataque Onde Eles Moram Attack Where They Live
Spanish (Latin America) La Familia Es Primero The Family Comes First
Spanish (Spain) Dales Donde Les Duele Give Them Where It Hurts


  • The title of this episode is based on the phrase Hit them where it hurts.
  • Zombozo's new modus operandi - using clown props as deadly weapons - mirrors that of the Batman villain The Joker.


  • According to Dwayne McDuffie, Ben only pretended not to remember Zombozo because he didn't want to admit to Kevin that he used to be afraid of clowns.
  • Charmcaster is shown to be in possession of Hex's staff. As stated in the original series, only a master magician can use it. Since Charmcaster was able to do so, it implies that she has become a master magician since her appearance in Ben 10: Alien Force.
