Swampfire by Zigwolf Swampfire by Zigwolf
My redesign of Swampfire from Ben 10

For the longest time I hated this alien, he was a walking contradiction, he was a plant that can shoot fire from his hands. How come he never caught on fire then and excreting methane was even worse for him as it should of made him as flammable as a dry Christmas tree covered in gasoline. It was never explained how he never avoided getting burned. And many fans have looked at him a cheap combination of Heatblast and Wildvine.

For this one, the black rock like parts of him are flammable and can create sparks to ignite them. This is how he fights with his hands, shoulders, and legs on fire. The sap around his head is the key to his safety from catching fire, it's non flammable and in small amounts covers his body. It also provides a good defense from any head damage.

For his look I combined elements of Swampfire and his Ultimate form while adding in my own ideas

This version's powers are also powered down. He can light parts of himself on fire, stretch himself, and heal from any damage. But what's gone is his chlorokinesis and fire blasts.

Expanding on the "non-flammable sap" idea, perhaps it could also put-out fires and he can create more of it and/or spray it out of his hands(making Swampy one of Ben's go-to fire-fighters).

Just a idea, though.:shrug:

I could see that working in some way. I'll think about it.

Just saying, it IS rather strong-looking and makes sense why his evolved form looked like a tree

I'm just wondering but since he doesn't have a fireblast anymore for long range weapons does he like take the parts of his body that catch on fire and throw it?

Well I'm thinking of retooling this Swampfire in design and powers.
I got rid of the fireblast because it made no sense for a plant alien
to have that power. The new way I would want his powers to work
is like a flamethrower. Swampfire shoots flammable sap out his hands
and uses sparks from his rocklike growths to ignite it.

Well I only redesign aliens whose designs I don't really like and I like Way Big's design, at least his original series design.

Very Nice Re-design, but I'd always thought that Swampfire was just made from an alien plant that just doesn't catch on fire because, you know he's an alien, anything is possible

Zigwolf Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah I guess but by logic he should also catch fire because he lets out a lot of methane which should make him catch fire when he ignites his hands. He just got a lot of things going against him for why his whole body should catch fire anytime he uses his abilities.
