XLR8 is the Codon Stream's DNA sample of a Kineceleran from the planet Kinet.



XLR8 in the original series

XLR8 resembles a semi-armored velociraptor. XLR8 has wheel-shaped feet and wears a helmet with a visor, leaving the other features of his head unknown. Whenever that visor does come up, you can see that he has a blue face, green eyes and black lips and stripes. XLR8 wears the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

In Ultimate Alien and Heroes United, XLR8 looks the same.

Powers and Abilities

File:XLR8 saves Rebecca.png

XLR8 can manipulate friction to reach speeds of 500 mph (approximately 805 km) in an instant and the same power allows him to climb up walls and run on water with relative ease.

Using his speed, XLR8 can perform a number of unique feats. He can create tornadoes through centripetal force, either through running in a small circle or spinning and can deliver speed-enhanced attacks in rapid succession. Amazing reflexes accompany this speed, allowing XLR8 to quickly dodge attacks with relative ease.

XLR8's sharp scissor-like claws can also cut through many objects.

In Protector of Earth, XLR8 can rapidly kick enemies, attack enemies with his tail, run in a circle to damage any enemies in his path, create a sonic boom, dash forward through enemies, and rapidly attack all enemies nearby by dashing to them.

In The Unnaturals, XLR8 is shown to be able to accelerate so fast that time appears to stop completely to him.

In the Ben 10,000 Timeline, XLR8 has a scanner built into the helmet, this is a product of nano-technology Ben 10,000 uses to enhance his aliens.

According to a Pop-Up in Ben 10 vs. the Negative 10, XLR8 can recover from injuries faster than other species.


XLR8's weakness is his lack of physical strength, which is about the same as an average normal human.

XLR8's speed does not always work on all surfaces, like ice or strong adhesives.

Magnets and charged pulses are said to be a problem, apparently disorienting XLR8 to the point that he cannot balance properly, but the series has never showed this weakness.

XLR8 in Ben 10,000

In Ben 10,000, XLR8's arms, legs and tail are gray instead of blue. He now wears longer sleeves with a pair of stripes under the shoulders. There are less stripes on his tail and he now has an arrow-shaped symbol on his lower torso. He is taller than the original XLR8 and appears to be much faster.

Naming and Translations

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.
