==Appearance==

Vilgax is a humanoid creature with a face resembling that of an octopus. He has tentacles dangling in the front of his face, like a beard. His skin is pale-green with yellowish spots on his face and tentacles. He doesn't have a nose and a visible ear. He has red eyes.
  +
  +
In the original series he wore a black and red-brownish armored suit and gloves. His armor is spiked at the shoulder and arm pads. He has green sacs on the sides of his head. His mouth was attached to the sacs by a respirator.
  +
  +
As of Secrets, he had become much more burly than before. He now had a mask covering his mouth, attached to the armor, and new shoulder and leg pads. He also had metallic gloves with small fingers as well as reddish brown cylinders-like objects piercing his arms, giving him much stronger and more muscular limbs. His tentacles are now much longer. He has 6 tentacles in front and 2 behind.
  +
  +
In ''Alien Force''/''Ultimate Alien'', he no longer has red-brownish armor, mask, and green cheek sacs. He wears a red and blue armor. He has a belt which is attached to the Raygun pocket. He wears dark blue stockings with metallic squares. He has a Ruby Ray of Ulo on his right hand, a Shield of Seagle on his left arm. He now has just 5 tentacles, all on the front of his face, and his eyes were larger. He also has a metallic part replacing the green sac on his head.
  +
  +
In his true form, he more closely resembles an octopus, having the shape of one with many tentacles. He has 3 spikes on his head. He has gills on his cheeks.
  +
  +
In Omniverse, he looks almost identical to his original design. He no longer has the Ruby Ray of Ulo and Shield of Ziegel. He regained his original green cheek sacs. He has dirty teeth. Two of his face tentacles now end with a spiky-looking-shape. His armor is similar to his original series, with the exception being the cylinders on his arm and armour now being gold in colour. He wears black clothes underneath his armour and black stockings. His gloves are fingerless. He wears a headpiece similar to his shoulder pads.
 
==Personality==
 
==Personality==
Extremely cruel, arrogant, authoritative, and power-hungry, Vilgax is always intent on his goal of ruling the universe, namely through obtaining the Omnitrix, which he views as the ultimate weapon. Vilgax is also very deceiving and manipulative, so as to accomplish his goals and has little to no sense of mercy.
+
Extremely cruel, arrogant, authoritative, and power-hungry, Vilgax is always intent on his goal of ruling the universe, namely through obtaining the Omnitrix, which he views as the ultimate weapon. Vilgax is also very deceiving and manipulative, so as to accomplish his goals and has little to no sense of mercy. Because of his greater skill-set, Vilgax became prideful of his capabilities and would occasionally point out to his enemies that underestimating him is a grave mistake. Because of his powers, his ruthlessness and his hunger for absolute conquest, Vilgax became arguably the most feared being in the entire universe. As a result, almost no sentient beings are willing to work for him sans Psyphon and certain mercenaries, the latter for the right price, so his forces consist almost entirely of robots programmed to obey him.
He can be considered as a foil to Ben Tennyson, as while Ben Tennyson is rather comedic and is usually looking out for others, Vilgax is always portrayed a serious character and only looks out for himself, with the exception of his own race.
+
  +
Initially, Max Tennyson was a foil to Vilgax, who was at first the only person who had ever defeated him. However, after he began his quest for the Omnitrix, Max's grandson Ben became his ultimate foil, making the two sworn archenemies for years to come. Also, while Ben is rather comedic and is usually looking out for others, Vilgax is always portrayed a serious character and only looks out for himself, with the exception of his own race. Even then, judging by his others, he cares more about the glory than truly being dedicated. If this is true than his attempts to protect his race is purely for personal gain.
  +
  +
Throughout his entire pursuit for absolute power, Vilgax was not willing to let anyone or anything stand in his way, and would get revenge on anyone who defeated him before. Because of this, he has developed a rather pathological hatred towards Ben Tennyson, and his quest for the Omnitrix slowly became his secondary goal as his desire for Ben's defeat and death became even greater. Also, because of his constant defeats by Ben's hand, Vilgax's reputation as the most dangerous being became fractured as Ben was now seen as the only one who could stop him, thus cementing Vilgax's obsession to kill him and restore that legacy.

Villain Overview
I have come too far to be denied! The Omnitrix shall be mine, and there is not a being in the galaxy that dare stand in my way!
~ Vilgax first quote in the series.
The puny Earth being that is keeping the Omnitrix from me will soon hang on my trophy wall!
~ Vilgax vows to kill Ben.
I am Vilgax, Conqueror of Worlds!
~ Reboot Vilgax

Vilgax is the main antagonist of the Ben 10 franchise.

He is a tyrannical alien overlord, a Chimera Sui Generis galactic conqueror, the supreme ruler of his planet Vilgaxia and the archenemy of Ben Tennyson, whom he desires to destroy. He has both conquered and destroyed many planets, where he intends to claim and use the Omnitrix to take over the entire universe and rule it with an iron fist. As well as being the most feared and hated being in the universe, he is a past enemy of Ben's grandfather, Max Tennyson and the Plumbers.

In the original series and Ben 10: Omniverse, he was voiced by Steve Blum, who also portrayed Starscream, The Green Goblin, Reptile, Zs'Skayr, Ares, Lucifer, Smytus, Makucha, Orochimaru, Zabuza Momochi, Killer Croc, Inferno, Lord Darcia III, Amon, BlackWarGreymon and Megidramon. In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, he was voiced by James Remar, who also portrayed Butch Pooch in Django Unchained, Albert Ganz in 48 Hrs, Beauty Smith in White Fang and Quill in The Phantom. In the 2016 reboot of Ben 10, he is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal, who also portrayed Albedo.

RolesEdit

In the original series, he appears as its overall main antagonist, serving as the main antagonist of Season 1, the film Ben 10: Secret of the Omnitrix and the non-canon Season 4 finale Goodbye and Good Riddance, the secondary antagonist of Season 2 and a supporting antagonist in Season 3 (as a futuristic version of himself).

In Ben 10: Alien Force, he serves as the main antagonist of Season 3. In Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, he serves as the main antagonist of Season 3, with Diagon being its overarching antagonist.

In Ben 10: Omniverse, he appears as one of its major antagonists, serving as a supporting antagonist in Arc 3, the main antagonist of the Arc 4 finale, And Then There Was Ben, and a supporting antagonist in Arc 8, serving as the secondary antagonist of the series finale, A New Dawn.

In the 2016 reboot series, he serves as the main antagonist, being the main antagonist of both Seasons 1 and 2.

AppearanceEdit

Vilgax is a humanoid creature with a face resembling that of an octopus. He has tentacles dangling in the front of his face, like a beard. His skin is pale-green with yellowish spots on his face and tentacles. He doesn't have a nose and a visible ear. He has red eyes.

In the original series he wore a black and red-brownish armored suit and gloves. His armor is spiked at the shoulder and arm pads. He has green sacs on the sides of his head. His mouth was attached to the sacs by a respirator.

As of Secrets, he had become much more burly than before. He now had a mask covering his mouth, attached to the armor, and new shoulder and leg pads. He also had metallic gloves with small fingers as well as reddish brown cylinders-like objects piercing his arms, giving him much stronger and more muscular limbs. His tentacles are now much longer. He has 6 tentacles in front and 2 behind.

In Alien Force/Ultimate Alien, he no longer has red-brownish armor, mask, and green cheek sacs. He wears a red and blue armor. He has a belt which is attached to the Raygun pocket. He wears dark blue stockings with metallic squares. He has a Ruby Ray of Ulo on his right hand, a Shield of Seagle on his left arm. He now has just 5 tentacles, all on the front of his face, and his eyes were larger. He also has a metallic part replacing the green sac on his head.

In his true form, he more closely resembles an octopus, having the shape of one with many tentacles. He has 3 spikes on his head. He has gills on his cheeks.

In Omniverse, he looks almost identical to his original design. He no longer has the Ruby Ray of Ulo and Shield of Ziegel. He regained his original green cheek sacs. He has dirty teeth. Two of his face tentacles now end with a spiky-looking-shape. His armor is similar to his original series, with the exception being the cylinders on his arm and armour now being gold in colour. He wears black clothes underneath his armour and black stockings. His gloves are fingerless. He wears a headpiece similar to his shoulder pads.

PersonalityEdit

Extremely cruel, arrogant, authoritative, and power-hungry, Vilgax is always intent on his goal of ruling the universe, namely through obtaining the Omnitrix, which he views as the ultimate weapon. Vilgax is also very deceiving and manipulative, so as to accomplish his goals and has little to no sense of mercy. Because of his greater skill-set, Vilgax became prideful of his capabilities and would occasionally point out to his enemies that underestimating him is a grave mistake. Because of his powers, his ruthlessness and his hunger for absolute conquest, Vilgax became arguably the most feared being in the entire universe. As a result, almost no sentient beings are willing to work for him sans Psyphon and certain mercenaries, the latter for the right price, so his forces consist almost entirely of robots programmed to obey him.

Initially, Max Tennyson was a foil to Vilgax, who was at first the only person who had ever defeated him. However, after he began his quest for the Omnitrix, Max's grandson Ben became his ultimate foil, making the two sworn archenemies for years to come. Also, while Ben is rather comedic and is usually looking out for others, Vilgax is always portrayed a serious character and only looks out for himself, with the exception of his own race. Even then, judging by his others, he cares more about the glory than truly being dedicated. If this is true than his attempts to protect his race is purely for personal gain.

Throughout his entire pursuit for absolute power, Vilgax was not willing to let anyone or anything stand in his way, and would get revenge on anyone who defeated him before. Because of this, he has developed a rather pathological hatred towards Ben Tennyson, and his quest for the Omnitrix slowly became his secondary goal as his desire for Ben's defeat and death became even greater. Also, because of his constant defeats by Ben's hand, Vilgax's reputation as the most dangerous being became fractured as Ben was now seen as the only one who could stop him, thus cementing Vilgax's obsession to kill him and restore that legacy.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

CurrentlyEdit

  • Superhuman Abilities: Without his cybernetic augmentation, Vilgan natural physiology has high amounts of superhuman strength and durability. With them, he can defeat most of Ben's stronger aliens.
    • Metamorphosis: Vilgan can also transform into a monstrous octopus-like form when in water, which he refers to as his true form. However, when he used this form, he lost his arsenal.
  • Cybernetic Enhancements: After being enhanced, Vilgax has not only become much bigger, his strength, speed, and durability are even more increased.  
    • In Alien Force, Vilgax possesses the powers and abilities of all the champions he defeated in battle. His abilities include superhuman strength, nigh-invulnerability, high-speed flight, laser vision, superhuman hearing, and breathable to generate cyclonic winds.
    • Strength Boosters: His arms also have steroidal boosters, letting him increase his strength whenever necessary, though they cause him pain when used.
  • Alien Technologies: Vilgax also uses a number of weapons, consisting of the Ruby Ray of Ulo, which can fire powerful laser beams, the Shield of Ziegel, which generates powerful forcefields to protect him and can also function as a taser, a sword that projects energy beams and can cover its blade in fire or crystals to reflect energy blasts, as well as slash through a spaceship, a laser gun, and gauntlets that generate photo kinetic energy.  

FormerlyEdit

  • The Ascalon: With the Escalon sword, Vilgan's could channel the fundamental forces of the universe. He could fire off shock waves, and his original and absorbed powers were amplified greatly. He could even cover himself in a mystical armor.  
  • Eldritch Powers: As the Herald of Diagon, he has even more power, proving able to dispatch a group of Forever Knights. Vilgax can also fire energy blasts from his hands and eyes and teleport between dimensions at will. 
  • Diagon's Powers: After absorbing Diagon's demonic powers, he also gained all of his demonic abilities. He could transform into Diagon, command his cult and even command eldritch magic & fire eldritch blasts.

Alternative TimelineEdit

  • Genetic Enhancements: After being resurrected by Dr. Animo in Ben 10,000, Vilgax was even stronger and had a number of enhancements, including a whippy tentacle and bio-grenades in his right arm, and an instinctual knowledge of all of Ben 10,000's moves.

QuotesEdit

What do you mean it’s not there? This battle nearly costs me my life, and you say the Omnitrix is no longer aboard the transport?!
~ Vilgax confined to a regenerative tank.
Failure? Unbelievable! The puny Earth being that is keeping the Omnitrix from me will soon hang on my trophy wall!
~ Vilgax declaring war on the wielder of the Omnitrix after his robot is destroyed.
Impressive. You are all hired. Your objective is to retrieve the Omnitrix. The one who succeeds collects the reward. Do not disappoint me.
~ Vilgax hiring Tetrax Shard, Sixsix and Kraab to hunt down the Omnitr via intrercom.
Betrayed?! It would appear the creature who possesses the Omnitrix is as clever as it is fierce. But I shall not be denied.
~ Vilgax learning of Tetrax's betrayal.
Listen to every word: be afraid. You cannot run. You cannot hide from me. I will find you. And when I do, I will retrieve my Omnitrix and destroy you!
~ Vilgax's threatening message to Upgrade when he latches onto Rojo.
The Omnitrix wasted on pointless heroics. No! I will see to this task myself.
~ Vilgax watch the news coverage of Diamondhead foiling a federal reserve robbery in Denver before exiting his tank fully healed and cybernetically enhanced.
At last we meet, the being that has caused me so much trouble. I am Vilgax, and I have come for the Omnitrix.
~ Vilgax stepping out of his rolling transport and onto the Rpid City streets to meet Heatblast for the first time.
A child? THE OMNITRIX IS IN THE HANDS OF A MERE CHILD?! It appears the Omnitrix has already merged with your own DNA.
~ Vilgax unmasking Stinkfly as Ben Tennyson, a 10-year-old boy, surprised to discover that the human who kept the Omnitrix from him is nothing but a child.
You hold the key to a power struggle, so ancient, so vast, it is beyond your feeble comprehension. Picture an entire army, each in command of an Omnitrix and all at my command. I will be invincible! I will rule the universe! And the only thing standing between me and my destiny is you.
~ Vilgax holding Ben hostage aboard his ship as he explains his plans for the Omnitrix.
Tennyson.
~ Vilgax recognizing Ben's grandfather, Max Tennyson, as an old nemesis, when the latter emerges from his RV with an ion cannon to save his grandson.

~ Vilgax restraining Max at the edge of the hull breach in his ship.
You are a slippery little fish, child, but no longer.
~ Vilgax trying to grab Ripjaws atop Mt. Rushmore
For you, there is no tomorrow. You can’t escape me!
~ Vilgax picking up XLR8 and hurling him away
Foolish earthling, why would I - the auto-destruct launch sequence HAS BEEN INITIATED! TENNYSON! You are the thorn in my side!
~ Vilgax finding out that Max has set his ship to self-destruct.
Underestimating me is a grave mistake. The last you'll ever make!
~ Vilgax as he frees himself and engages Kevin Levin after the latter underestimates his capabilities.
Vilgax owes his alligience to no one! Especially not a misshapen, chaotic amalgam of creatures... from the Omnitrix! What do you know about the Omnitrix?
~ Vilgax realizing the exact nature of Kevin's mutation.
You think you can destroy me?! I analyzed every one of your aliens and had Animo program their moves into my new DNA! Nothing you can do will surprise me anymore!
~ Vilgax (in his alternate future form) as he overpowers Ben 10,000.
Your ship will be useful in my quest for the Omnitrix. And when I recover it, I will exact my revenge on the Earth boy who imprisoned me in that cursed Null void dimension!
~ Vilgax's first line in Secret of the Omnitrix as he executes a ship crew to use its resources for his quest for revenge on Ben Tennyson and to recover the Omnitrix.
Surrender the Omnitrix and your deaths will be swift - except, of course, for the Tennyson boy!
~ Vilgax booming his demands over the intercom of Tetrax's ship
Hello... Ben. You are going to regret sending me to the Null Void for what little remains of your miserable life!
~ Vilgax confronting Ben on Tetrax's ship, looking to finally exact revenge on the boy for their last confrontation.
Ben 10, I've come to kill you and conquer your world. Is now a bad time?
~ Vilgax facing off with Ben for the first time in five years during Ben 10: Alien Force.
What a wonderful opportunity. Both of my greatest enemies in one body. What is it you humans say? I can kill two birds with one stone?!
~ Vilgax gleefully noting how he can now kill both Ben 10 and Ghostfreak after the latter takes control of his body.
And here we are again. Me, on the cusp of total victory; you, the last man standing, the only slim hope left in this world, this universe. Who will it be? Diamondhead? Swampfire? One of your tiresome ultimate aliens? Perhaps you have yet another new transformation to spring on me.
~ Vilgax standing off with Ben in the finale of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
Power is meaningless if it isn't used. Do it.
~ Vilgax trying to tempt Ben into using the Ascalon, the Ultimatrix and Diagon's power to rule the universe.

TriviaEdit

  • Vilgax is similar to Darkseid from the DC Comics as both are powerful alien overlords, both fight a young adversary, and both wear armors.

  • Vilgax's defeat at the hands of Way Big in Alien Force is similar to his defeat in Secret of the Omnitrix, which has been confirmed to be an intentional touch.
  • Vilgax has a number of similarities in design and goals to Cthulhu.
    • Vilgax also resembles the Gorath from Megas XLR.
  • In the original Ben 10 series, Vilgax's homeworld was given as the Null Void Frontier or the Shadowy Realm before it was confirmed as Vilgaxia (formerly known as Murray) in Alien Force.
  • The producers of the show refer to Vilgax as "Darth Vader without a sense of humor".
  • According to the Ben 10 pop-up marathon, Vilgax will not meet his final demise until 200 years after the original Ben 10 series.
  • Derrick had intended for Vilgax to look like his original self, but Matt Youngberg thought Vilgax's Alien Force/Ultimate Alien appearance had more personality.
