Appearance

Ben as Spidermonkey

Spidermonkey is an alien with four arms, two pairs of green eyes, two legs, three fingers on each hand and three toes on each foot, blue fur over a dark blue center, and a tail with two stripes near the tip. Spidermonkey wore the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien.

In Omniverse, Spidermonkey has three pairs of green eyes, his hair is flipped up, and he wears two green sashes going across his chest. The two stripes on his tail have turned grey, and the fur on his head is spiky with gray stripes. His nose has now shifted to his forehead and its shape has changed. He continues to wear the Omnitrix symbol on his chest, but it is connected to the sashes. He now speaks with a higher-pitched voice. He also talks with monkey sounds and chirps in between words.

Albedo as Negative Spidermonkey

In Alien Force, Negative Spidermonkey looked exactly like Spidermonkey in Alien Force and Ultimate Alien but he had red eyes and his Ultimatrix symbol was red as well.

In Omniverse, the fur on his body is black and his skin is a reddish, pale shade of maroon, representing his ultimate form. The stripes in his hair and on his tail are light grey. The sashes on his torso are red with the Ultimatrix symbol connecting them at the center.
