Humongousaur by Zigwolf Humongousaur by Zigwolf
Mine and :iconkevfilms2x2:'s redesign of Humongosaur for our UAF reboot, Ben 10 Resurrection.

For this version he uses the armor that he grows and retracts and that he only used in the second episode of Alien Force. He also grows sharp spikes on his knuckles for devastating punches. Kev also gave him some new clothes since to me being naked sucks and a sash and briefs are still not tough enough for this guy.

My take on Hugo (Come back AssassinVariantX!) is basically the same, only the size-changing thing is still a power that they evolved to further combat Tyrannopedes alongside the sharp spikes and plates, but the larger they get, the more damage it does to his spine, hence why Ben doesn't use it very often, and when he does he keeps at around 60 Feet at most.

Ultimate Humongousaur loses this weakness due to his spine being genetically altered by the Galvan to be connected to the shell he bares. (In my take the Ultimates come from an alternate universe Albedo went to that has been at war for several million years and collected the DNA Samples of each race at their current evolutionary point and placed them into his Ultimatrix, which he himself developed in this version).

(Oh yeah, that guy is awesome) I think when it comes to size changing, it shouldn't be something he can command at will. The size growth is chemical reaction in his body when it's flooded with adrenaline. His muscles expand and physique grows and he'll only come down from that when the adrenaline wears off.

Oooh, I like that explanation and I'm not even a big fan of the Ultimatrix.

The biggest problem with Hugo's Size-Shifting was (to me at least) that he could reach potentially unlimited sizes and have no problem during or after the usage of the form. He could of ended the Highbreed War by using Jetray's Hyperspeed (That came right the hell out of nowhere) and size-shifted as Hugo up to the size of a planet, spend a few minutes smashing up their world, then go back home to fuel his smoothie addiction. Its something UAF Ben would do.

The chemical growth via adrenaline idea is great, but I think I'll stick to the spine-damaging idea, as it forces Ben to limit himself, gives Hugo a good weakness, and allows Upgraded Hugo to actually be an improvement on the original, not a repaint with some more dinosaur-like features.

As for the Ultimates, I came up with the idea way back when Ultimate Albedo first showed up. I thought "A Galvan evolving into M.O.D.O.K? Yeah, that actually makes sense." and started implanting ways for each species to evolve the way they did in the show, and then thought up the war concept as a motivation for these species to essentially become cyborgs. Also it would later be established that there are hundreds of wars going on in different universes, and Albedo specifically selected the one that gave him the most power over Ben, meaning that the fans who disliked the cybernetics a lot of races had could think that in other universes Hugo and company turned out differently.

As cool as I think that idea is (and I agree, the hyperspeed came out nowhere) I think there's some science and physics that could keep that move from being possible. Hyperspeed does give an incredible amount of speed but a massive shift change going from Jetray to Humongousaur would add a massive amount of wind resistance and weight to his body and that would slow him down considerably. Maybe Cannonbolt might be a good alternative with being able to go completely spherical and being less heavy than Humongousaur.

Ok, not criticizing but do you think it might be a bit brutal with everyone trying to slam or blast his spine to weaken him ?

So if I'm understanding this right, Albedo made himself into his evolved form and that led to him thinking up how the Ultimates could be developed ?

Both of us know that Alien Force and Ultimate Alien did not give a damn about logical science (Clockwork, Lodestar and UA Eatle being biological creatures comes to mind), but yes, Cannonbolt would be the better option logically.

It may seem brutal but the spine can be crippled by many things, such as heavy objects landing on it. This may seem a bit silly to bring up, but the power scale of the villains is much different here. Vilgax doesn't conquer ten worlds, he conquers hundreds (and he doesn't brag about it because he feels he can do better), Maltruant is more than an Arc Villain, he is around from the OS, and causes several Time and Dimensional screw-ups (Gwen 10 being the first example), Kevin is a sociopathic monster that owns a massive criminal empire and only gets stronger as time goes on (He does reform eventually, but he goes through hell several times to do so, and still doesn't get with Gwen), Dr. Psychobos is a genuine threat, removing his species' usual weaknesses through mutation and experimentation and taking over Xenon as a research area. And those are just the main villains. I could go on all day about the Forever Knights and Zombozo and the other villains that I changed, but I believe I got the point across. Hugo's back is an easy weakness to exploit, and depending on the villain, they will use that weakness to torture him (Vilgax and Kevin) or simply to bring him down (Dr. Psychobos and Maltruant). Besides, if I was restricted by censorship laws, anything too brutal would be seen through shadows and facial reactions of the surrounding characters, which (as Batman: The Animated Series has shown) can be even more effective.

Though I do like that idea, that is not what happened in my take. What happened was that Albedo evaded capture (no stupid "two Omnitrixes can't exist in one universe spiel") by turning into Goop and slipping through a crack in the wall. Throughout the rest of Hero Generation (sticking with the Man of Action Title), it is mentioned that Albedo has yet to be found, and it all comes together in the finale (Vilgax was already took care of in The Secret of Chromastone, which in this take a story about a conman named Sugilite who tricks Ben into fighting Vilgax so he can escape his wrath), where we see Albedo come through a portal baring the Ultimatrix. It is shown through flashbacks that after his escape, Albedo needed something to boost his power level, making him undeniably stronger than Ben, thus he built a dimensional portal and looked for a world with stronger forms to utilise. Then he finds the Ultimate Universe, where Vilgax and Ben (with Master Control) beat each-other to death, blowing up Earth in the final punch between Ben as N impossibly large Hugo smashed into Vilgax, smashing him through the Earth, rather graphically burning him and then hitting the core, blowing up the entire planet. Albedo sees the power these beings possess, and decides to do his own DNA Hunt, and in the span of several decades collects the DNA he needs for each alien in the Omnitrix, plus a few new aliens that evolved throughout the Ultimate War. He and a few friends he made whilst studying that Universe return to the main universe, then Albedo uses Clockwork (who Ben unlocked during an interim series between the OS and Hero Generation but never really masters until UA) to return to the present, and sends Hugo, Swamps and Fridge (i'll probably rename those last two) to take down Ethan (Kevin's replacement), Gwen and Julie (who is more of an Action Girl here), while he takes care of Ben himself. His Ultimate Counterpart is a member of his armada, but Albedo wants to keep him (and the rest of his army) ready for the final battle.

(Yup plus there was the added ability of Super Speed to Way Big that made no sense for a being his size and had no ill effects on anything or anyone around him)

Yeah but I'm thinking of how often it would be seen with his spine getting hit. It's like every time Ben turns into Humongousaur, it'll be expected that his spine would be targeted. Wow, I like that idea of Maltruant causing the altered timeline of Gwen 10, he could realize that killing Ben is almost impossible so he'd take away his greatest asset, The Omnitrix and make it go to someone else, plus he'd also give the Ben of this timeline the memories of the original, for an added sting. I had a similar idea for my first reimagined take on Kevin, after escaping the Null Void, he discovers his matter absorption ability and uses it with a gold chain to make himself millions and becomes somewhat of billionaire supervillain. (Good idea with keeping him from getting with Gwen, I never understood how they even became attracted to each other). That's a good idea for Psychobos, with his boasting of superiority, you'd think he would of found a way to improve himself through those methods.

Oh ok, now I get it. I really like that idea.

(I have tried to block out Flash-Way Big from my mind. The logical failures hurt to much for me to want to bring it up)

Notice how I only brought up the big threats before (Vilgax, Maltruant, Dr. Psychobos, ect...)? I did that because they are the only ones dangerous enough to risk going bigger for. Hugo is a situational form. Ben won't turn into him to stop Clancy or Rojo or any other low/medium level threat. Hugo is similar to Way Big in that way, he only pops up every once in a while, and when he does, expect a really cool fight. Speaking of Way Big, he also has an obvious weakness to exploit: His fin. Both Hugo and Way Big have obvious weakspots, but there is something stopping them from being facepalm-worthy if a fight sequence neglects to show it. For Way Big, its his height. For Hugo, its his thick skin. If Vilgax smashed into Hugo's spine repeatedly, while Hugo is at full size, it would break. If Kolar (who in my take is an old friend of Manny Armstrong that was kidnapped, brainwashed and mutated by Dr. Psychobos) through a single punch at his back, it would sting, but not break. That is why Hugo and his species evolved such thick skin, as protection for their backs. Also not every villain is going to know about such a weakness (I mean, do you know the weaknesses of every native species on Earth? I certainly don't), so guys like Fistrick or Dr. Animo or the Forever Knights would probably just attack at random, not focusing on a single point.

Funnily enough, the original idea was that Eon did it, but then I thought "Okay, Maltruant has supposedly been around at least since the days of George Washington, and yet he has done nothing onscreen until now? Nope. Not buying it. Changing that now.". The best part is that "A New Dawn" is altered so that every ally of Ben from numerous dimensions has been brought together to defeat Maltraunt (and a few spoiler villains who he is working with, and his two Omniverse minions), including Gwen 10, so he created a part of his downfall.

In this take, Kevin shows sort sort of attraction to Gwen during his teen years, though only because of her appearance, which leads to Gwen calling him a "perverted pig". If I recall, Gwen dates Ethan for a while before going out with a reformed Charmcaster. Unfortunately the files with plans for Gwen and the rest of the "Alien Force" have been corrupted, so I could be mixed up here. I do remember the final couples being Ben-Ester, Ethan-Looma, Julie-Herve (completely revamped here by the way), Edwin-Kai (He funded her archaeological digs, which led to them chatting and falling for each-other), Rook-Rayona, Helen-Manny, Lucy-Cooper, and Max-Xylene (Verdona is an old friend in this version). Kevin is the one I don't remember at all.

Psychobos is much less goofy here (though I do not have the heart to remove his catchphrase), specialising in technology making and genetic manipulation, as well as having massive removable cybernetic enhancers on his legs for faster movement and reflexes. He is arguably more dangerous than Khyber (who is basically the same as he was in Arcs 1-2, only slightly more ruthless and cunning), as Khyber doesn't have a small army of genetic monstrosities at his beck and call.

Thank you, it was actually one of my first ideas for revamping the series, alongside the alterations to Hugo and Fasttrack.

Yup, they weren't even thinking about how this might now work. Only what sounded good to them.

Ok, I guess I can buy that. 

Good call on that. Maltruant always seemed like he should of shown up sooner. Now that sounds like an awesome finale if you include all those allies. 
 
I got the same thing going on, Kevin always shamelessly flirts with Gwen and she responds by calling him a sleazeball.
Who's Ethan ?
So Gwen goes out with Charmcaster ? 

Damn, that sucks. Good couples though. Glad you revamped Verdona, I hated her so much. 

Nice, I like these ideas for Psychobos.

Heck, I'm planning on giving Alien X some sort of armored look to him.

That sounds like a good idea. Aliens really shouldn't be nude unless their biology calls for it, like Goop and Heatblast.

Sounds awesome, would they look like the celestialsapiens from The Universe V. Tennyson ?

Shadow-DJ Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Agreed. Heck, I made a Pyronite villain who has a a human disguise and that's why he gains clothes from that (Yes, that's a legit power of their's)

And yeah. Alien X gets a Celestial Super Hero look. You know...A white jumpsuit that exposes his star-body in some parts (as the black would likely be the black parts of his physiology) and his horns fuse with a helmet-like growth on his head. After all...Alien X DOES look like, well...nude :P

:iconzigwolf:
Zigwolf Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So is it a natural power or something like a DNA mask Kevin used to wear when he was mutated ?

Sounds cool. The jumpsuit part sounds like an idea I also used for my design of Alien X zigwolf.deviantart.com/art/Ali…. I'm wondering how the helmet-like growth might look. Is it like the Spartan-like helmet like Galactic Gladiator had ? I get what you mean with the nude look it's a good effect but off putting when you realize that they look a lot like naked humans.

Kinda, I reworked Astrodactyl's power into him sucking up large amounts of air and he has large fins on his back that expel pressurized air that propels him to fly. Plus in my new design his wings are on his arms, instead of being separate on his back and the membrane part of is razor sharp, making him essentially have arm blades.

To protect itself from Tyrannopede:

That does sound like a good idea but I'm hoping that those counter abilities don't totally protect Humongousaur from Tyrannopede. Tyrannopede is a Vaxasaurian predator for the reason of being able to get the upper hand on Vaxasuarian abilities. To make ways that Humongousaur can get around those predator abilities defeats the purpose of Tyrannopede all together.
