Swampfire is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Methanosian from the planet Methanos.

Appearance

Ben as Swampfire

Swampfire is a humanoid, plant-like alien that has an overall green and black colored body, mostly with a flame-patterned head and root-like feet, seemingly holding rocks. His eyes are a oval shaped with points at each end with pupils copying the shape but are smaller. Also, his shoulders and head have red petals. His elbows and legs have green frills sticking out. Swampfire is taller than an average human and has a distinct rotten stench that worsens with heat. His voice is very stuffy and nasally because he has no nose. Swampfire wears the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

In Omniverse, Swampfire's first design is similar to his Alien Force/Ultimate Alien appearance, except for having five fingers on his hands. Swampfire's skin is now olive green, and his arms are larger. The red petals on his shoulder, along with the green thorns on his body, are thinner and longer. His torso design has changed, splitting the black parts on his waist into two. The Omnitrix symbol has also moved from his chest to his stomach. 

Swampfire's first stage of "blossoming" is more muscular than his earlier design. He has also lost his pupils,  one of his red petals, and a green frill from each leg. The lines on his neck have thinned and the lines on his chest have moved upward and into a pointed down angle. His green is also a shade lighter than his olive green.

Swampfire's second stage of "blossoming", he gains more muscle with the black lines being removed from his chest intirely. His red petals have formed into a red thorn shape. With 2 on each arm. The neck lines are now triangular. His shade of green is now lime green. His face resembles his full matured for except that instead of orange surrounding the eyes there is black surrounding the eyes.

As of Charmed, I'm Sure, Swampfire's second appearance, or "blossomed"/"matured" form, is plant-like, but with major changes. He looks more muscular and taller. His skin color is now light green. His face is now colored yellow, red, and orange. His pupils are gone. His chin is more visible. His hands are now colored black, with four yellow claws and a yellow hole to unleashed his fire powers. He has six red horns with yellow spots (aesthetically resembling flames); two on each forearm, and one on each shoulder; as well as a green horn on each foot, knee, and elbow. He now has a large collar raised up around his neck. The Omnitrix symbol is still on his stomach.

Albedo as Swampfire

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

Powers and Abilities

  • Swampfire shooting fire
  • Swampfire growing plants from the ground
  • Swampfire using vines as whips
  • Swampfire reattaching his hand
  • Seeds
  • Tentacles
  • Walking through

Swampfire has the ability to ignite methane in his palms, (from yellow holes in his "blossomed" form,) similar to a flamethrower.

Swampfire is also capable of limited flight through means of launching fire from his palms as jet propulsion, as shown in War of the Worlds: Part 1.

Swampfire has a high degree of chlorokinesis. Swampfire is able to manipulate his biological agriculture to stretch his limbs for multiple purposes, as demonstrated in Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 2 and Ghost Town. He can also reattach detached body parts by manipulating his vine-like "veins" to reach out and meld with the insides of the detached limb. Due to his plant-like composition, he is also capable of regenerating at an astonishingly quick pace.

Swampfire's methane can make the Incurseans unconscious. As displayed by Negative Swampfire in The Final Battle: Part 1, by spraying methane at a human's face, it will render them unconscious. Swampfire's methane can also bring plants to life, as shown in Everybody Talks About the Weather, while fighting DNAliens.

In Ben 10: Alien Force, Swampfire could emit methane which causes plants to grow over enemies, channel his flames into a concentrated fireball, having the ability to tunnel underground, and immerse himself in a coat of flames. He is also capable of firing a straight beam of concentrated fire.

In Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks, Swampfire could ignite his hands for "flaming fists", create a ring of fire to attack enemies, and cause thorny vines to sprout from the ground.

In Charmed, I'm Sure, Swampfire's "blossomed" form revealed that he has complete control over the Mutant Pumpkins from Anur Transyl. His fire blast also appears to be more powerful than before. He can grow plants from the ground simply by raising his hand into the air.

Swampfire has enhanced strength, being able to push over a Highbreed Weather Array, as well as hold his own against Vilgax with his bare fists. In his "blossomed" form, he appears to be even stronger and more durable than before.

In X = Ben + 2, Swampfire was able to walk straight through an iron bar of his holding cell.

in Weapon XI: Part 2, Swampfire was shown able to grow vines with a flame tip from his hands and use them as whips.

Weaknesses

In Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 2, Swampfire was continuously cut up by Goop's Anti-Gravity Projector, preventing him from regenerating.

Swampfire can be frozen, shown when a DNAlien froze him in Everybody Talks About the Weather. He can thaw himself out by igniting the methane in the palms of his hands.

According to himself, Swampfire cannot control weeds, though after 'blossoming,' he gains the ability to command the hordes of Mutant Pumpkins.

Swampfire's swampy stench makes it hard to hide from anybody or anything capable of smelling.

As shown in Catch a Falling Star, if Ben turns into Swampfire with a broken arm, Swampfire's arm will be twisted and shriveled. He was also in pain from it.

Trivia

  • Swampfire's voice resembles Maximus' voice from American Dragon Jake Long.
  • Despite having no nose, Swampfire somehow has a sense of smell.
  • Swampfire has a nano in FusionFall after the player beats Fusion Ben.
  • Swampfire appears in Cartoon Network's TKO.
    • His special moves are Fireball and Vinespike, and his super move is Inferno Blast.
  • Swampfire has the most designs of all of Ben's aliens.
  • Swampfire's redesign in Omniverse has many similarities to Tom Perkins' original concept art of him.[1]
  • Swampfire is one of Ben's aliens in which its natural biological behavior overrides his normal state, the other being Big Chill, who's Necrofriggian's drive to reproduce also overrides the Omnitrix, as shown in Save the Last Dance. The Methanosians undergo a kind of growth and "blossoming" phase. In Ben's case, his Omnitrix is unable to select a different alien and he develops large facial pustules in his human form, until his Swampfire form has fully blossomed.

    • The original was a work of art, my favorite alien design. I hate his post-puberty look, it's as though original Swampfire and Chromastone had...
    • I agree, he looks too smooth to even be considered a plant. Plus his face looks too much like Whampire to me.
