Rath is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Appoplexian from the planet Appoplexia.


Ben as Rath

In Alien Force, and Ultimate Alien, Rath is about nine feet tall. He resembles an orange and white bipedal tiger with one black claw coming out of each wrist. He has no tail. He is also muscular and has green eyes. He has stripes on his shoulders, head, legs and upper body. He has a white jaw, neck, chest, stomach, hands and feet. The Omnitrix is located in the center of his chest.

In Heroes United, fur sticks out of Rath's arms, chin, and head, giving him the appearance of a bipedal tiger.

In Omniverse, Rath looks similar to his Alien Force and Ultimate Alien appearance, but is more muscular, with longer and more pointed eyebrows. His fur appears darker as well. His eyebrows are now completely black (except in his first re-appearance).

In Secret of Dos Santos, Skurd fixes the Omnitrix error that made Rath naked by giving him an outfit similar to that of a luchador (a Mexican masked wrestler). His luchador outfit has a green and black color scheme. He also wears black boots, black gloves, and a luchador mask. His claws are now greyish-silver instead of black. The Omnitrix is now on his luchador belt.

Mad Ben as Rath

Mad Ben's Rath has darker fur, orange eyes, and a hair style like Mad Ben's. He also has Mad Ben's Mad Max style silver plates with orange spikes on his shoulders, lower arms, and calves. The Omnitrix symbol is on a black panel on his chest and is colored orange. He is also slightly thinner than Ben Prime's Rath.

Albedo as Rath

In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, Negative Rath looks exactly like Rath but he has red eyes and his Ultimatrix symbol is red as well.

In Omniverse, Albedo's Rath has white fur instead of orange and has dark grey stripes. He now has clothing, just like Ben's Rath. However, he lacks the mask and the tank top. He has black shorts, along with red gloves and boots. He has a red belt with the Ultimatrix symbol on it.


Rath's personality resembles Marvel Comics' Wolverine's and that of a stereotypical professional wrestler.

He always speaks in third person. Sometimes, when Rath becomes extremely angry, he gets confused about what he was saying. Rath knows that his metaphorical statements make no sense, but still continues to use them. Rath can even start yelling at inanimate objects, such as when he started yelling at a hole he made in the ground after falling from a spaceship, threatening to destroy it. When Rath is angry at someone or something, he usually yells a sentence starting with, "Let me tell you something" followed by the full name of the person or his position, such as calling Khyber "self proclaimed greatest huntsman of the galaxy" and Kevin as "Kevin Ethan Levin".

He is very direct and fearless to the point of recklessness, as he didn't hesitate to both figuratively and literally jump down Jarett's throat to rescue the Tiffin and threatened to mutilate him with rearrangement of his organs into a sweater if he started a war, or about firing the Vreedle Brothers out into space after they blasted him and his tray of food.

Over time, Ben has gained slight control of Rath, as seen when he lowers his voice to answer his phone.[1]

Because of Rath's tendency to be less than a genius, Kevin cannot help but mock or make fun of him.

Despite the fact that Rath is supposed to know nothing but anger and fighting, he is shown to be friendly towards Tiffin, though not at first.

Rath lacked the strong sense of shame that most Appoplexians have, as he ran around naked.

In Secret of Dos Santos, he starts to speak Spanish due to Skurd's effects.

Albedo as Rath

Unlike his counterpart, when Albedo is Rath he has more control over his emotions because of Albedo's superior intellect.[2]

Powers and Abilities

SZTWC (408)

Rath's enhanced strength

Rath possesses enhanced strength and agility, enabling him to jump great distances and lift objects heavier than himself. This was shown by how he was able to easily dismember the Forever Knights' paramilitary tank via brute force and toss the still extremely large pieces around (with one hand and later with two for the tank's body) with minimal to no effort.[1]

Rath possesses a large, retractable black claw on each wrist. This claw can be used to stab and slice opponents or to create a shock wave when stabbed into the ground. Whenever Rath gets determined or angry, his claws seem to grow larger.

Rath is extremely durable, able to take a point-blank laser blast with no apparent effect and survive a free fall from several hundred feet in the air with only a bit of dizziness as a result.

Rath can also release a loud roar, although this seems to be more of an intimidation tactic rather than an offensive feature.

Even though he is not one of the smartest of Ben's aliens, Rath can perform fighting moves with expert execution, seen when he used wrestling moves to defeat Manny.[3]


  • Rath's hydrophobia
  • Rath being hypnotized
  • Deadly sonic frequency

Rath's brain is hardwired for aggression and as such, Rath's only known weakness is his lack of intelligence and highly aggressive temperament. This causes Rath to become easily distracted and difficult to stop once he starts fighting.

Rath's apparent lack of intelligence also often convinces him to needlessly argue with inanimate objects

Rath is afraid of water, like most actual cats, but unlike actual tigers.[4]

Rath can be subdued by the Hephestan Neuro Grip.[5]

A certain sonic frequency signal is fatal to Rath.

Rath, being feline based, can be controlled by people that have the ability to control cats, like Nyancy Chan.


  • Rath first appeared in Con of Rath. Rath was accidentally unlocked by Tiffin and Ben remained as Rath until Cicely took Tiffin away. Ben transformed into him a second time at the end of the episode telling Kevin that "Rath wanted a word with him."
  • In Above and Beyond, Rath defeated Manny.
  • In Vendetta, Ben transformed into Rath off-screen to battle the Forever Knights.
