War of the Worlds: Part 1 is the twenty-fifth episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.


In space, the Highbreed fleet is seen attacking Galvan Prime. Paradox came to save Azmuth, and Azmuth knew there was no point in being saved since without the Galvan, the universe is doomed. Paradox rescued Azmuth anyway. Ben was practicing soccer with his sports team when Paradox came to get him, and they went to Mr. Smoothy to meet Kevin, Gwen, and Azmuth. Paradox told them to destroy the Jumpgate to prevent the Highbreed invasion, and they planned to go and take out the Jumpgate.

Azmuth told Kevin and Gwen to leave to get teammates with Professor Paradox. In a cornfield, Alan transformed into a Pyronite and captured a DNAlien before getting recruited. Kevin, Gwen, and Professor Paradox came and Azmuth faced Ben. He wanted to tell him the truth about the Omnitrix, and then the recruiting group came to find Cooper testing out his intangibility glove. He created robotic armor, wanting to come. While Ben faced Azmuth, Azmuth told him that he could revive any species, including the human race.

Ben was upset because he wanted to fight, and Azmuth tried to convince him not to. Later, Kevin, Gwen, Professor Paradox, Alan, and Cooper were seen in a Plumber's base, where the latter was using a machine to contact Darkstar, who was still trapped in the Null Void. They freed him and he was now forced to help. Meanwhile, Ben and Azmuth argued until the Galvan gave up and saw the cause Ben was fighting for. He gave commands and activated the Omnitrix's Master Control, allowing access to all alien forms.

Allied with Gwen, Kevin, Professor Paradox, Julie, Ship, Alan, Cooper, and Darkstar, they left to Los Soledad where the Highbreed were building the Jumpgate, which Cooper found using a cloaking field. As they reached, Ben turned into Cannonbolt, saying he felt nostalgic, and they entered the cloak field. A massive army of DNAliens came into sight and hence, an enormous battle began.

Kevin absorbed matter, and Gwen used her mana to fight the DNAliens. Alan turned into his Pyronite form and Julie served well as backup, transforming Ship into a battle aircraft. Cooper utilized the armor he had and Darkstar had even started to take the DNAliens' energy, but Ben arrived to stop him and started using the Omnitrix to cure the weak DNAliens.

Ben tired himself out and collapsed on the ground. He was awakened and Cooper turned his suit into genetic damage reversing weapons. The battle continued to resume while inside, one of the temperature-altering towers the Highbreed wanted was the one that the team destroyed before they entered the tower. The Highbreed unleashed the Jumpgate as the group tried to destroy it, eventually resulting in Ben using his largest alien, Way Big. While attempting to destroy the Jumpgate, he was severely injured and Way Big reverted back to Ben, who drifted into unconsciousness, just as the Highbreed fleet arrived on Earth.

Aliens Used



Azmuth: I would have a word with the wielder of my Omnitrix... in private.
Kevin: Right, like I'm gonna miss this. See ya when you get back, Gwen.
Gwen: (grabs Kevin)
Kevin: Hey!
Gwen: Kevin Ethan Levin, you come with us right now!
Ben: "Ethan"? Your name is "Kevin E. Levin"? You just lost all remaining pretence of cool.
Kevin: (to Gwen) You promised you'd never tell!

Quotes Right


Kevin: What's so important that I had to miss the auto show?
Azmuth: The imminent destruction of your primitive world and all who live here.
Gwen: But if you'd rather go look at a new convertible, by all means.

Quotes Right


Professor Paradox: Azmuth, come with me.
Azmuth: There's no point, time-walker. The Highbreed armada caught us totally by surprise. Galvan's planetary defenses are down. We don't have a chance. And without the Galvan, no other race in the galaxy has a chance either.
Professor Paradox: But, and I hesitate to say this to the smartest being in the universe, that's where you're wrong.
Azmuth: Explain.
Professor Paradox: We do have a chance. The chance you made for us.
Azmuth: That is not what the Omnitrix is for.
Professor Paradox: The boy has proven more than once that it can be used for purposes beyond what you intended.
Azmuth: Perhaps.
Professor Paradox: Come with me to Earth.
Azmuth: I'm not leaving my home, not now.
Professor Paradox: (walks near Azmuth) And I'm not going back without you. (a Highbreed warship charges up a powerful beam and fires it straight at Azmuth and Paradox's location) I hope that you sincerely reconsider in the next 3 seconds or so. (Azmuth looks at Paradox, beam hits their location, Azmuth and Paradox teleport away in the nick of time)
