XLR8 (pronounced "Accelerate") is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Kineceleran from the planet Kinet.

Appearance

XLR8 resembles a semi-armored Velociraptor. He has black wheels on his feet and wears a helmet with a visor, leaving the other features of his head unknown. Whenever the visor does come up, one can see that he has a blue face, green eyes, black lips, and stripes above and on the right side of his eyes. He wears the Omnitrix symbol on his chest. He has five blue stripes on his tail.

In Ultimate Alien, XLR8 looks the same albeit his Ultimatrix symbol is green. In Heroes United, he has darker skin.

In Omniverse, 16-year-old XLR8's appearance is the same as Ultimate Alien, but taller, the white color on his shirt is replaced by green, which now covers whole of his neck. He has four blue stripes on his tail. The black balls on his feet are bigger. His helmet is longer in the back and front. His claws are also longer. His visor is darker. XLR8's voice now sounds like Ben's, but in a fast talking, higher-pitched way.

11-year-old Ben as XLR8 in Omniverse looks exactly the same as his 16-year-old version, except that he is shorter, and the green color of his shirt is white.

Gwen as XLR8

From what has been shown, Gwen's XLR8 is similar to that of Ben's, however, the black-green-blue coloration has been changed to match that of Gwen's clothes, while her helmet is still black. Her face is the same as Ben's XLR8, but is rounder, and has dark blue freckles rather than black markings. She has a pink face-mask and Gwen's hairclip. Her eyes are pink, and she has a pink Omnitrix on a cat symbol on her chest.

Powers and Abilities

Hot Stretch (315)

XLR8's enhanced speed

XLR8 can manipulate friction to reach speeds of 500 mph within two seconds. In The Unnaturals, it was revealed that XLR8 can accelerate so quickly that time appears to completely stop to him.

XLR8 can deliver speed-enhanced attacks with rapid succession, such as excessively kicking or stabbing enemies.

XLR8's Creating Tornado

XLR8 creating tornado

XLR8 is capable of creating tornadoes by generating a centripetal vacuum powerful enough to lift a To'kustar, either by running in a circular pattern or spinning at supersonic speeds.

XLR8 has quick reflexes, allowing him to dodge attacks with little effort.

XLR8's scissor-like claws can cut through many materials with relative ease.

In The Krakken, XLR8 has enhanced strength, enough to carry a multitude of fishermen and Gwen across a lake to shore without slowing down.

According to the pop-up edition of Ben 10 vs. the Negative 10: Part 1, XLR8 can recover from injuries faster than other species.

XLR8 has very high dexterity, being able to type on keyboards or keypads at high speeds. Using this skill, he can input any code to deactivate devices. This was first shown in Store 23.

XLR8 also seem to think at superhuman speed as well, as he was able to think of a million combinations in a few seconds.

In Back With a Vengeance, when Kevin 11 was pushed and almost fell off a cart, he used his Kineceleran tail to hang on to the wire. This shows that XLR8 has a prehensile tail.

Weaknesses

XLR8's speed does not always work on all surfaces, like ice or strong adhesives, which can slow him down.

It was revealed in Rules Of Engagement that XLR8's tail could be held down to keep him in place.

Etymology

XLR8's name has the same sound as the word "accelerate", referring to his high speed. Otherwise, some translated versions of the series also call him XLR8, but in their respective ways of pronunciation, the names used for official dubbing don't fit the original international pun making them senseless.

  • According to Matt Wayne, XLR8 is not as strong as Fasttrack.[1]
  • According to Derrick J. Wyatt, XLR8 will replace Fasttrack in Ben 10: Omniverse.[2]
  • XLR8 appears to have more control over his speed than Fasttrack, who sometimes has trouble stopping, while XLR8 could always stop immediately.
  • XLR8 was the winner of the Cartoon Network Ben 10 alien poll.
    • However this poll only had the original 10 aliens, Cannonbolt, and Wildvine.
  • XLR8's name was used in a Pop dance group in the Philippines.
  • In the online game Ben to the Rescue, XLR8's visor is miscolored green.
  • XLR8's name was used on a CD about different technical institutes by the Universal Technical Institute.
