Monster Weather is the thirty-sixth episode of Ben 10. This episode celebrates the two-year anniversary of the series.
Grandpa Max takes Ben and Gwen to a music festival in Chicago to see his favorite old-time band, Shag Carpeting, but the event's interrupted by a weather-controlling robot called S.A.M. (short for Sounding Annometer Metograph). Vance Vetteroy, a weatherman who created S.A.M., reprograms S.A.M. to create weather rather than report it, but S.A.M. gets struck by lightning and then gains a mind of its own. S.A.M (the cloud monster) first uses water, then lightning and finally a tornado to fight his creator, and then Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max during the Shag Carpeting concert. Ben (as Four Arms) strums on an amplified guitar to create an opposite feedback frequency to finally destroy S.A.M..
