Wiz: For years, humans have gazed at the stars, contemplating the possibilities of first contact with an alien race. Will we exchange gifts of peace, or weapons of war?

Boomstick: Weapons. Definitely weapons. Like these ones!

Wiz: Ben 10, defender of Earth and wielder of the Omnitrix.

Boomstick: And the Green Lantern, galactic lawman and bearer of the Power Ring.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.

Wiz: Benjamin Tennyson was just your average 10-year-old boy. He loved video games, hated school, and was prepared to have the most boring summer vacation ever, until destiny fell from the sky.


We see Ben running from a falling object coming towards him.

Wiz: Upon discovering a strange, crash-landed alien device, it stuck itself upon his wrist with secrets that it hid.

Boomstick: ♫Now he's got superpowers, he's no ordinary kid, he's Ben 10~!♫ Sorry Wiz, I just can't help myself, that theme song's so damn catchy!

Wiz: This strange device was the Omnitrix, a portable library of intergalactic genetic data that can transform its user into a variety of different alien species.


Boomstick: Sounds like the perfect way to get freaky with some alien babes from all across the galaxy!

Wiz: Well, you do you, but the cosmic warlord Vilgax had something different in mind. With the Omnitrix technology, he planned to create an army of superpowered aliens and conquer the universe.

Boomstick: Yeah, typical villain stuff, but ol' hentai face would have to wait, 'cause Ben got the watch first and became a superhero! Well, okay, first he burned down a forest but THEN he got busy with the hero stuff.

Wiz: The Omnitrix contains a built-in radio, universal translator, distress signal, a self-defense pulse blast against anyone trying to force it off Ben's wrist, and, as a bonus, it can tell time.

Boomstick: And whenever Ben comes across a new alien he‘d like to cosplay, it can scan their DNA, so he can add them to his transformation collection, and he's got a ton to choose from. He's got alien forms that can control the elements, like lightning, water, ice, earth, and fire with his very first transformation ever, Heatblast. Along with some just beautiful fire puns.


Heatblast: I'm totally hot. (chuckles)


Boomstick: Ah, you got to respect the classics.

Wiz: As Four Arms, he's strong enough to create shockwaves with mere punches. As XLR8, he can run fast enough to dodge lightning. As Diamondhead, he can survive massive explosions like they were nothing. But if you prefer brains over brawn, like myself, he can increase his intelligence with alien forms like Brainstorm, who has an IQ of one nonillion. That's a one, followed by 30 zeroes, and more than three octillion times greater than the highest recorded IQ in history.

Boomstick: He can fly as Jetray, duplicate himself with Ditto, and eat his feelings away as Upchuck. Wiz, that's really not a healthy way to handle issues.

Wiz: You know, you're right, Boomstick.

Boomstick: Yeah, he should really just stick to alcohol. And if he ever wants to suck for some reason, he's got Walkatrout, which is a fish with legs... And that's it.

Wiz: Probably Ben's worst transformation, and that's saying a lot, considering he has an alien literally named "The Worst".

Crush And Destroy

Boomstick: If old-timey horror movies are your thing, Ben can transform into every classic monster you can think of. Because I guess zombies and werewolves were aliens all along. I knew it!

Wiz: Through different forms, Ben can manipulate the fundamental forces of the universe, like gravity, radiation, time, and energy. Feedback for instance once absorbed the entirety of the Big Bang, and then fired it at a robot supervillain, creating a time loop, and saving the universe.

Boomstick: Yeah, as he's gotten used to hero work, Ben's aliens started getting pretty insane. Like Way Big, who's basically a giant kaiju who can fire a cosmic ray from his chest powerful enough to hurt a being made of pure energy. And let's not forget my personal favorite alien, Mole-Stache! He's a mole who punches people... with his mustache. (chuckles) You can't write that.

Wiz: Truly a... fearsome addition to Ben's massive arsenal. But contrary to the show's very specific title, Ben's Omnitrix doesn't just have access to 10 alien forms. In fact, it has 1,000,912.

Boomstick: ♫He's no ordinary kid, he's Ben 1,000,912!♫ Yeah, doesn't... Doesn't quite roll off the tongue like "Ben 10", does it?

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick, with the latter having the Omnitrix equipped on his arm.

Boomstick: Well, let's see if I can take one of these babies for a spin.

Wiz: Where did you get that?

Boomstick: Don't worry about it.

Wiz puts on sunglasses as Boomstick transforms himself into a Tetramand, and then starts rapidly switching through aliens as Wiz talks.

Wiz: Well, the Omnitrix does have one drawback. It usually has an automatic cooldown period for a few minutes between transformations, because overuse can permanently disfigure the user's DNA.

As Wiz finishes, we see Boomstick is now a mutated alien abomination, similar to that of Ultimate Kevin or Aggregor, but worse.

Boomstick: (gurgles) Oh great, you couldn't have said that four seconds earlier?

The music stops and Wiz shrugs.

Boomstick: (gurgles) Now if you'll excuse me, I need to pee out my face.

Wiz: Ugh, I'll fix this later.

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: This cooldown would be a recurring issue for Ben, until he discovered Master Control, a special code which, when inputted into the Omnitrix, just let him use it however he wanted.

Boomstick: (normal voice) And if he's ever on death's door, the watch will automatically pop him into whatever alien body it thinks he needs at the time to survive whatever's happening.

Wiz: And there's one form that's almost always the best answer: Alien X. Born in the Forge of Creation beyond the multiverse itself, Alien X is a Celestialsapien, the most powerful species in the universe.

Boomstick: He's basically a cosmic god who can punch planets to bits, fly faster than light, duplicate himself, control minds, use telekinesis, reverse time, warp reality, and even just straight-up erase people from existence.


Ben: It takes a lot to get their attention and that's fine. We don't want it.

Young Ben: Why not?

Kevin: They could just blink, and we'd be gone.


Boomstick: Alien X is so tough, he's survived the destruction of the entire universe by the Annihilarrgh and didn't feel a thing! Like, his durability was so through the roof, he didn't even realize total cosmic annihilation was happening right on top of him!

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Wiz: Based on rough estimates made by a NASA astrophysicist, the total mass-energy of the universe in joules is four...

Boomstick: Well, that doesn't seem very impressive.

Wiz: ...followed by 69 zeroes.

Boomstick: Oh, there it is.

Wiz: And to top it off, Ben as Alien X went and just remade an entirely new universe identical to the old one.

Boomstick: First of all, how the hell? Second, since he just made a copy universe, that technically means that all those characters we watched through the whole show are still dead! Damn, dude! Throw somebody a bone or somethin'.

We cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: However, Celestialsapiens are composed of multiple personalities. And if they can't unanimously agree on what action to take, which can take billions of years, all that power is basically useless.

Boomstick: But Ben convinced his extra personalities that that's really goddamn stupid and he should have full control all the time, so it doesn't matter. Why doesn't he just go full Alien X all the time?

Wiz: Well, a little variety doesn't hurt, right? Plus, even without his alien forms, Ben is pretty clever and has a knack for getting himself out of trouble, even when things get really weird.

Grandpa Max as a Lepidopterran larvae is shown on-screen.

Boomstick: And he's saved the universe more times than he can count. He's defeated Vilgax when he had the power of a Cthulhu god, ended the Highbreed conspiracy, and whooped another Celestialsapien, the Galactic Gladiator, by flying so fast, he created a galaxy-sized black hole.

Wiz: We can tell, from the size of the black hole in relation to the galaxies in the background, as well as how long it took to create, that Alien X must have been flying approximately seven quadrillion times faster than light speed.

Boomstick: I get it, Wiz. Alien X is totally overpowered, but Ben doesn't keep any of those powers as a human.

Wiz: Not much of a problem when the Omnitrix can instantly transform him fast enough to catch the Big Bang. The only thing truly holding Ben back throughout his hero career was his immaturity, being a ten-year-old and all.

Boomstick: Oh, yeah, like that one time he messed with the Omnitrix and accidentally set it to self-destruct. After charging up for a few days, it would destroy the whole universe on its own, so, that's not great.

Wiz: Fortunately, Ben grew into a reliable and wildly successful hero by the time he reached the age of 16. He would continue his hero work into the future, eventually adopting the name "Ben 10,000". The world can rest easy with Ben 10 as its first and best line of defense.


Gwen: Sixsix and Vulkanus? What are they doing here?!

Ben: About to get their alien butts kicked, that's what. Goin' hero!

He slams down his Omnitrix.


Green Lantern

Mission One

Wiz: Hal Jordan was just your average devilishly handsome ladies' man and hotshot test pilot who discovered a crash-landed alien ship in the desert. Okay, so maybe he's... not so average.

Boomstick: I'll say. He found this guy Abin Sur dying in a crashed spaceship, who gave Hal a little green ring before kicking the bucket.

Wiz: And so, by reciting an ancient oath, Hal Jordan would become a Green Lantern.


Hal: In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might beware my power, Green Lantern's light!


Wiz: The Green Lantern Corps is a universe-spanning law enforcement organization, founded by the immortal Maltusians, also known as the Guardians of the Universe.

Boomstick: Hey, they're space Oompa-Loompas!

Wiz: More like leprechauns.

Boomstick: Okay fine, whichever mythical creature you want.

Wiz: No, no, I mean a group of them traveled to Earth centuries ago, and literally evolved into modern-day leprechauns.

The music stops.

Boomstick: I KNEW they were real!

Wiz: Anyway, the Green Lantern Corps has patrolled the known universe for three billion years, recruiting members of every shape and size.

Boomstick: Including a living planet, a sentient smallpox virus, some guy with an exploding volcano for a head, a living math equation, and a squirrel. Man, even after all these years, Wiz, comics are weird.

Wiz: Imagine what it felt like for Hal when he began training on the guardian homeworld, Oa. Over time, he grew to be one of the Corps' greatest members and defender of the universe.

Boomstick: Just with that ring of his. It might look tiny, but if Mjolnir, Yoda, and years of therapy taught me anything, it isn't the size that counts, it's what you do with it.

Wiz: Uh, right. The Green Lantern Power Ring is actually one of the most impressive weapons ever made. It's most well known for its ability to create hardened light constructs that function identically to what they're inspired by. Anything from boxing gloves, to machine guns, to an entire solar system. While a ring's wielder must be familiar with the object they're creating, they don't necessarily need to know all the ins and outs for it to function.

Boomstick: The ring's energy can boost Hal's strength and speed, and also protect him with a force field. He can shoot lasers, phase through objects, turn invisible, read minds, heal wounds, and fly through space faster than light.

Wiz: The only true limit to a Power Ring's utility is its user's imagination, insofar as allowing the Green Lanterns to bend the rules of the universe to their whims. They can transmute matter and energy, manipulate time, form pocket dimensions, and warp the fabric of reality.

Boomstick: And even though Abin Sur went out like a b*tch, the ring makes a competent Green Lantern really tough to kill; it has built-in defenses to protect against mind control, and it can sometimes yank its owner out of harm's way all on its own.

Wiz: It can even defend against multiversal erasure events, like when Kilowog survived the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Boomstick: That's right, this guy tanked a freaking retcon to the face! Whatever's in these rings, I want it in my dune buggy, stat!

Wiz: That would be pure, unfiltered willpower.

Boomstick: Yeah... how many miles to the gallon you think that is—

Wiz: OKAY! Well, a Green Lantern's abilities stems from their own willpower. The stronger their will is, the more their ring can do.

Boomstick: So if willpower is green, does that make fear brown?

Wiz: Yellow, actually, as dictated by the emotional electromagnetic spectrum, an energy field from which all emotion in the universe is derived.

Boomstick: Kind of like if The Force from Star Wars was a rainbow of feelings, and Hal's got more willpower bustin' out than anybody else, which makes him really damn powerful, and really damn reckless.


Green Lantern: Green Lantern's got this!

He attempts to attack Darkseid, who easily punches him into a building, followed by him getting pummeled by Parademons.

Wiz: His enormous power has led to his possession by Parallax, an entity of fear, and caused entire planets to fall, but it's been said knowing true fear made Hal's will even stronger than before.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Boomstick: Like when he went up against this blue dickweed Krona, who took control of all these space animal gods that embodied the different rainbow spectrum emotions.

Wiz: Including Ion, the green basking shark of willpower. Yes... I know. Hal was able to overturn Krona's plan, which meant overpowering the literal embodiment of all willpower in the universe, with his own willpower.

Boomstick: That sounds, uh... Impressive?

Wiz: Impossible?

Wiz and Boomstick: Impressible?

The two then fist bump before we cut back to the analysis.

Boomstick: Hal's been knocked through a planet, blasted by a supernova, and punched by the reality-shattering Superboy-Prime.

Wiz: He was fast enough to fly to Earth from a planet at the edge of the universe. And factoring how DC's observable universe is at least 100 trillion light-years in diameter, Hal must have been flying well over 1.5 quintillion times the speed of light. And without the ring, Hal once had to pilot a ship traveling over lightspeed manually, as in, there where planets and stars his way, and Hal had to steer.

Boomstick: And since he can match the God of Willpower, he can pull off crazy will feats that other Green Lanterns have done, like when Kyle Rayner held back a Big Bang.

Wiz: But to be fair, the Power Ring is not perfect. It does carry a finite charge and should he expend too much energy too quickly, he'll need his Power Battery to refuel.

Boomstick: Also, if his opponent can ruin his willpower, or even just his belief in himself, Hal won't be able to use the ring, which is lame.

Wiz: Yeah, these powers are pretty complex. Batman once had a plan to trick Kyle into thinking he was blind, and because he believed he was, the ring reacted to his thoughts and actually made him blind.

Boomstick: But Hal's too badass to let a little sadness to take him out for good. Hell, he's got the cojones to arrest GOD, but Wiz, I gotta address the yellow elephant in the room.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick, where the music has stopped abruptly and there is literal yellow baby elephant in the room with them.

Boomstick: Why the hell are Green Lanterns weak to yellow?

The elephant looks at the camera before we cut back to the analysis.

Wiz: Ages ago, yes, the Green Lanterns couldn't affect anything yellow because Parallax had messed with their power source, but that is no longer the case, so Hal isn't held back by colors. And really, that's not even the worst weakness a Green Lantern ever had.

Boomstick: Oh yeah, way back in the day, a Green Lantern went rogue and tried to take over a planet of people with crude wooden weapons, and so, as a great little "F you", the gods decided to make him weak to wood right before the blows started landin'. Ah, good thing it's not a problem for Hal. Whether it be brightest day or blackest night, all should respect the emerald light of the Green Lantern, or he'll willpower you to death, apparently.


Green Lantern: Give up? Please say no.

Ten of Spades: You'll never catch me, Lantern!

Green Lantern: Bang.

Hal launches a bolt construct from his bolt gun construct that launches the Royal Flush Gang member off her board and down a slide construct, which traps her in a construct of a birdcage.

It is nighttime around a quiet city street as one of Ben's aliens, XLR8, is seen casually speeding by. But the Kineceleran's momentum is quickly halted when he becomes trapped in a mysterious green bubble, forcing him to turn back into Ben Tennyson.

Ben: Huh...?

A voice catches his attention and levitating down before his very eyes is the ring-bearing galactic protector known as Hal Jordan.

Green Lantern: Hello! Green Lantern, best-looking guardian of Sector 2814, at your service.

Ben: I can give you ten good reasons right now to let me go!

Green Lantern: Sorry kid, seems you're carrying a Class A galactic superweapon.

Hal then releases Ben from his bubble.

Green Lantern: I'll just take this.

A solid emerald construct in the shape of an open hand beams out of Hal's Power ring. But as the Sector 2814 Guardian grabs Ben's watch, it releases a pulse blast which knocks Green Lantern to a nearby building.

Green Lantern: Okay, that's interesting.

Ben: You're not the first doofus to try and take this! It's hero time!

Ben slams down his hand on the Omnitrix and transforms into Four Arms.

Four Arms: FOUR ARMS!

The mighty Tetramand leaps towards his new foe and strikes with his fists, only meeting the Lantern's forcefield. Hal quickly capitalizes on the alien's delayed strike and from behind, constricts his arms in a rope construct, immobilizing him.

Green Lantern: Lights out, Punchy!

And with enough force, hurled Four Arms into a nearby fire hydrant, bursting it. Green Lantern levitates nearer, hoping to convince Ben into surrender.

Green Lantern: Come on kid! Let's stop this before it gets heated.

Heatblast: Too late!

The burst water evaporates to reveal Ben's new alien form; the fire-bodied Pyronite known as Heatblast, who unleashes a burst of flame at Green Lantern. Green Lantern dodges, and then dodges a few more blasts before taking to the air, with Heatblast following. Heatblast unleashes another burst of flames at Hal, who conjures a giant fire extinguisher to block the flames. The wielder of the Omnitrix proceeds to engage in banter as the struggle goes on.

Heatblast: Hey! You ever seen a supernova?

Green Lantern: Several, actually. I-

As Hal says this, Heatblast unleashes a gigantic wave of flames all around him, forcing the Green Lantern to pull up a force field. Eventually, there is a huge explosion. Hal is unharmed, but tired from having blocked an intense blast. Ben takes a moment to trash talk again.

Heatblast: Hah! You're so lame! I bet could even beat you as Grey Matter!

As he says this, he promptly transforms into the very alien he was mentioning.

Grey Matter: What?! I didn't mean literally!

Grey Matter then looks up and sees Hal looming over him, Lantern ring pointed straight at him.

Green Lantern: Cute.

A flash of green signals Ben transforming again, this time transforming into Way Big, and promptly stomping on Hal.

Way Big: Ew, I stepped in loser.

Hal then comes out from underneath Way Big's foot, and manifests giant spiked knuckles, and gets into a giant-sized fist-fight with the To'kustar, eventually overwhelming him and trying to drop a moon-like construct on him. There is another flash of green, and there floats the Celestialsapien, Alien X, holding the construct up.

Alien X: Yawn.

Alien X wipes the construct out, then flies right in front of Hal before using a simple finger flick to send him flying into space, before following up and delivering a high-speed beatdown on the Green Lantern. He then grabs Hal by the throat and starts erasing him.

Alien X: This is Alien X. He controls all of reality. This is over.

Right before he is completely erased, Hal unleashes a burst of power from his Power Ring and punches Alien X away.

Green Lantern: I don't care what kind of power you've got!

Alien X then proceeds to clone himself, surrounding Hal on all sides, before closing in to attack. Hal creates a barrier around himself before taking out his Power Battery and reciting his ancient oath.

Green Lantern: In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might beware my power...

As Hal says this, energy explodes from him, blowing away all of the clones of Alien X.

Green Lantern: ...Green Lantern's light!

Hal then manifests a spear and rushes at Alien X, stabbing the Celestialsapien in the chest. In return, the Celestialsapien does a rotating gesture with his arm, and time rewinds:

Green Lantern: I don't care what kind of pow-

As Green Lantern is saying this, Alien X sucker punches him, sending him flying into a nearby asteroid, and leaving him bloodied. Alien X takes the time to trash talk once more.

Alien X: Reality includes time.

Hal has a sudden flash of inspiration from this.

Green Lantern: Time, huh? Thanks for the tip!

Green Lantern then disappears into a green vortex. Eventually, coming out of the other end of the vortex is a familiar scene: the start of the fight.

Ben: You're not the first doofus to try to take this! It's hero ti-

As Ben is about to transform, though, a construct pair of shears appears from behind and slices his Omnitrix arm off. Ben looks for a moment in shock before screaming in pain. Behind him, Hal is shown exiting the green vortex and raises his ring in the air before bringing it down, causing a giant Timberland boot construct to come down on Ben, crushing him. Hal takes the moment to reprise a certain line of his now-dead opponent.

Green Lantern: Ew, I stepped in loser.

He then tries to chuckle but just starts coughing due to his wounds.

Green Lantern: Ugh, it hurts to laugh...

He then grabs the last thing remaining of his foe — the dismembered arm attached to the Omnitrix — before he notices his past self looking at him.

Green Lantern: Don't ask...

As he says this, he flies back into the time portal he created. His past self then creates a construct shaped like a question mark to show his confusion.

Boomstick: Welp, that's another minor on our board of death.

Wiz: Ben's absurd versatility and ingenuity put up a stellar fight, but Hal had the tools and skills he needed to ensure a victory.

Boomstick: While the Omnitrix's millions of aliens is just nuts, he could only use one at a time while Hal always has access to all of his powers.

Wiz: Even with the flexibility of Master Control, this meant Ben was always playing catch-up. Not the great position considering Green Lantern's might.

Boomstick: Ben's Diamondhead form was tough, sure, but he wasn't surviving a planet exploding in his face. XLR8 was wicked fast, but not fast enough to cross the universe in an hour, and Way Big was really strong, but he didn't hit as hard as a supernova.

Wiz: Hal simply outclassed all of Ben's options... except for one.

Boomstick: Yeah, how the hell did Hal beat Alien X?! That thing is basically omnipotent!

Wiz: Well, not exactly. Celestialsapiens are extremely powerful, but they can be beaten in battle and have failed in the past. Like the time Alien X recreated the universe. He only did that because he couldn't stop it from being destroyed in the first place.

Boomstick: Alien X could definitely match a lot of Hal's powers, but Hal had defenses against X's. Mind control? The ring protects Hal's head. Messing with time? Hal could do that, too. Trying to wipe him from existence? Please. Green Lanterns can survive an entire universe being erased.

Wiz: Likewise, Alien X has never shown any defenses against the same kinds of things that Hal could replicate. Like mind control, transmutation, and time manipulation.

We cut to Wiz and Boomstick.

Wiz: Ben and his alien forms put up a great fight, and Alien X is easily one of the most powerful combatants we've ever seen on Death Battle. However, Hal had the speed, versatility, and literal willpower necessary to claim his victory.

Boomstick: I guess you could say Hal was definitely the ringer for this fight.

Wiz groans.

Boomstick: Ah, Wiz. Don't be green with envy. That pun was 10 outta Ben.

We cut to the "Winner" card.

Wiz: The winner is Green Lantern.

Emerald Heroes HQ

Composition

The track for this fight is "Emerald Heroes" by Therewolf Media ft. Daniel Vincent Galvan (who goes uncredited on the track cover). It uses various types of synths to create a space theme. Two sets of lyrics are heard in the background that represent Ben and Hal, both sung by Galvan. It also implements piano and electric guitar, with the latter sounding similar to those used in the original Ben 10 theme song.

Title

The title is a reference to Ben and Hal's heroic natures and their signature colors being green. It could also be a reference to the animated movie Green Lantern: Emerald Knights and Ben's catchphrase ("It's hero time!").

Cover Art

The cover art done by Luis Cruz depicts the original Omnitrix in its active state with the Green Lantern logo replacing the regular symbol.

Lyrics

Can't knock off my emerald crown
The cold cosmos forged my emerald crown
A force of justice from a league of renown
The cosmos are mine, the cosmos are mine

I'm schizophrenic, I'm not schizophrenic
There's tens of me but I swear we're not schizophrenic maybe
I'm schizophrenic, I'm not schizophrenic
There's tens of me but I swear we're not schizophrenic maybe

Can't knock off my emerald crown (I'm schizophrenic, I'm not schizophrenic)

The cosmos are mine, the cosmos are mine (There's tens of me but I swear we're not schizophrenic maybe)

Trivia

Production

  • The connections between Ben Tennyson and Green Lantern are that they are both human heroes with a green aesthetic whose powers came from a mysterious, green device that crashed from space and attached itself to their hand, giving them a massive variety of powers (Ben wields the Omnitrix, which allows him to shapeshift into any alien, and Hal wields a Green Lantern Ring, which allows him to create constructs of anything he imagines), turning them into heroes who help humans and aliens across the universe while fighting villainous aliens. Both were recruited into universe-spanning crime-fighting organizations composed of a multitude of aliens with a green insignia (the Plumbers and the Green Lantern Corps, respectively). Both of their devices draw their powers from planetary sources (the Codon Stream on Primus and the Central Power Battery of Oa, respectively), and both devices are made from wise, old aliens diminutive in stature who wish to spread peace among their respective universes (Azmuth and the Guardians of the Universe, respectively).
  • As revealed in the 125th episode of DEATH BATTLE Cast, Ben Singer wanted to bring Ben Tennyson into Death Battle for years, though he didn't think his most popular opponents, Beast Boy and Danny Phantom, would work for different reasons.[1]
    • Beast Boy was rejected because Ben belived that he wouldn't stand a chance against Ben due to the sheer differences in their transformations. The team considered limiting Ben to his younger self from the original cartoon, but Ben wanted Ben to have all the aliens he has achieved over the years.
    • Danny was rejected because Ben believed the matchup was made due to nostalgia for both Ben 10 and Danny Phantom and not because of any matching powers or themes between Ben and Danny, concluding that it would make for a weird episode.
  • As of July 3rd, 2019, this episode has become the most negatively received episode of the show, garnering a 56% positive reception rate on YouTube, surpassing the first two Goku VS Superman episodes in controversy. Most of the ire towards the episode came from the vocal Ben 10 fanbase, who questioned if Green Lantern could compete with Alien X and heavily criticized the ending of the fight. The post-analysis not properly explaining why Green Lantern won (such as putting important stats and information in the pop-up boxes as opposed to having Wiz or Boomstick say them out loud) is also a common point of controversy and criticism.
  • Due to the infamy of the fight's ending, the line "Time, huh? Thanks for the tip!" has become a meme in the Death Battle community, to the point where the crew themselves are well aware of it, having even made a purchasable shirt of the infamous line (which also features the boot that killed Ben alongside it), as well as an exclusive emote of the boot for people that have a Death Battle Membership.
    • Cable VS Booster Gold features a scene similar to this episode's infamous climax, where Booster Gold utilizes time travel to his advantage after Cable tells him how he used his own time-traveling abilities to gain the upper hand. Booster even says something similar to the infamous line before traveling through time ("Oh hey! I can do that, too!").
    • Boomstick references the infamous kill during Lex Luthor's analysis in Lex Luthor VS Doctor Doom by referring to the Lantern Corps as a "band of green boot stompers".
    • Boomstick nearly recites the infamous line in full during Dio Brando's analysis in DIO VS Alucard when going over The World's time stop, though he was hit by Wiz before he could finish.
    • In the Goomba VS Koopa 2 DBX, during the scene of the Koopa time-traveling, Hal takes notice of the Goomba's Shoe that came along with it when it stops by him, implying that it inspired his crushing of Ben with the construct boot.
      • Also in the DBX, the line "Don't ask..." Hal said to his past self would be re-used by the Koopa to its past self after he killed the past Goomba.
    • The final episode of DEATH BATTLE Cast done under Rooster Teeth, Wiz VS Boomstick, included a three-scene animatic of the two hosts fighting, with the climax being Boomstick equipping a Green Lantern Ring before saying the infamous line in full and traveling back in time to before he and Wiz started fighting. However, rather than killing Wiz, he instead just punched him in the face and made a contruct beer can to drink out of after agreeing to let the viewers decide who should win.

Easter Eggs

Errors

  • Due to his render being flipped, Ben's Omnitrix is on the wrong arm in the thumbnail.
  • During Ben's analysis, Boomstick claims that Way Big fires his cosmic ray from his chest, even though he actually fires them from his arms/hands (specifically, the same way Ultraman does, as he was a direct inspiration for Way Big's design).
  • During the fight, Heatblast is shown flying through sheer levitation, which is not a power he possesses.
  • Several times during the fight, Green Lantern can be seen with two rings equipped.
  • In one of the Heatblast sequences, the Omnitrix's emblem is missing from his chest.
