Frightwig was one of Zombozo's minions from the Circus Freak Trio. Despite her strength, she is always easily subdued by Ben, normally by being tied up by her own hair. She later appears in the Ben 10 reboot as a 10 year old.


Original Series

Frightwig has pale skin, a black tight-fitting body suit and five orange tentacles for hair, she also wears flat shoes. She has many similarities with Mel, a protagonist from the German comic book series Team Actimel.


In Omniverse her outfit is different, and her hair is now tied up in two pigtails as opposed to down.


Original Series

Frightwig first appears in "The Last Laugh" as a member of Zombozo's circus. She, Thumbskull, and Acid Breath fight with Wildmutt and later Upgrade and lose.

In "Ghostfreaked Out", Frightwig is possessed by Ghostfreak when he needs to take shelter from Grandpa Max's Sun Gun. When she is knocked unconscious by Four Arms, Ghostfreak abandons her body and enters Gwen's.


Frightwig appears in "Something Zombozo This Way Comes", when she and her team are re hired by Zombozo to distract Ben while he is feeding off people's fear.

Ben 10 (2016)

Frightwig appears as a 10 year old criminal and rival to Ben.

Powers and Abilities

Frightwig can use her tentacle-like hair to hit, wrap up, crash into and defeat enemies. Her hair is extremely powerful, with black orbs on the tips for greater concussive damage.


Frightwig can accidentally tie herself if she tries to whip her hair at an opponent and misses and can't get out.
