Alien Species

Crystalsapiens are a crystalline alien species from the planet Petropia.



Crystalsapiens are one-eyed silicon-based lifeforms with bodies made of a highly durable purple stone, with the hands hands and faces being made of a magenta crystal. They have magenta spike-like crystal shards all over their bodies with six on their backs, two on their chests, and one at the top of their heads akin to a horn. Their legs and arms are decorated with several black lines and dots.

Certain Crystalsapiens have drastically different designs that lack the shards on their chest and four of the shards on their backs. Instead, they have three additional shards on each shoulder and arm, one on each knee, and two on the sides of their heads. Their neck are longer and their faces have magenta chins resembling a mouth guard, making it look like they are speaking without moving their mouths.

Powers and abilities

Crystalsapiens are capable of absorbing any type of energy, including lasers, electricity, Mana, and any type of electromagnet radiation,[1] including ultraviolet light to cosmic rays.[2]

Crystalsapiens can channel the energy they have absorbed into powerful ultraviolet beams that can be fired from either their hands or any of the shards on their bodies. These beams vary in power level, which depends on how powerful the absorbed energy from an opponent's attack is. They can be powerful enough to knock back even a Celestialsapien.

Being able to absorb electricity, Crystalsapiens are immune to electrical attacks and can conduct them back at their opponents.

Crystalsapiens can project a beam of light from their hands to illuminate dark places. The light they generate also makes them immune to being possessed by an Ectonurite.[3]

Crystalsapiens possess enhanced durability thanks to the indestructible silicon compounds of their dense crystalline skin,[4] making it very hard for enemies to physically hurt or even smash them. Their skin also makes them immune to a Xenocite's attempt at merging with them.

Crystalsapiens possess enhanced strength, being able to lift heavy loads and carry Humans while running. Technically speaking, they are physically stronger than Methanosians.[5]

Crystalsapiens are able to fly, and can sometimes leave an ultraviolet trail while doing so.

Crystalsapiens possess a degree of enhanced speed, enough to keep up with Amperi.

Because they are crystalline in nature, Crystalsapiens can survive in the vacuum of space.

If a big enough light source were to shine through them, Crystalsapiens can create a big beautiful rainbow in the sky.[3]

Crystalsapiens have the power to generate prismatic explosions.[6]


Despite being highly durable, Crystalsapiens can be shattered by extreme force.

Despite both their immunity to and conduction of electricity, Crystalsapiens are unable to absorb electricity while it is being conducted by water.

Crystalsapiens are unable to absorb energy when they are either not expecting it or too weak to do so.

There is a limit to how much energy a Crystalsapien can absorb at once before being overwhelmed to the point of crumbling apart. Similarly, they would be disintegrated fairly instantaneously if they were to absorb energy equivalent to the Big Bang.[3]

Despite their enhanced strength, Crystalsapiens are physically weaker than Vaxasaurians.[5]

A Crystalsapien's ultraviolet beams are ineffective against a Chimera Sui Generis, and can be absorbed by Conductoids.[3]

Crystalsapiens cannot absorb an Insectoid's plasma.[3]

Crystalsapiens can be affected by magic, as there are spells that can bury them in the ground and alter their gravity.

Crystalsapiens can be easily overpowered by a Celestialsapien's telekinesis.

Like other living beings, Crystalsapiens can be controlled by a Vladat's Corrupturas because the Corrupturas are crystalline entities themselves.[3]

There is a limit to a Crystalsapien's heat resistance, as they would probably not do well if they were to be thrown into a sun.[3]

Notable members

  • Chromastone: An Omnitrix transformation used by Ben Tennyson.
    • Chromastone (Alien Force Dimension): An alternate version of Chromastone used by the Ben Tennyson of the Alien Force Dimension.
  • Sugilite: The guardian of Petropia and Chromastone's genetic donor.


  • Diamondhead: When Ben wore the recalibrated Omnitrix and original Ultimatrix, Diamondhead's DNA was temporarily fused with remnants of Chromastone's Crystalsapien DNA after the latter was destroyed by Vilgax.[6]
  • Ultimate Kevin: 17-year-old Kevin Levin of the Prime Timeline transformed into an amalgamation of every alien available in the Ultimatrix prior to traveling to the Forge of Creation, including Chromastone.
  • Plant Clone: A Plant Clone of Ben Tennyson transformed into Chromastone after stealing the Ultimatrix.


In the Vilgax Attacks Timeline, the Crystalsapiens come from the crystal planet MorOtesi. In the Prime Timeline, however, they instead come from Petropia whereas MorOtesi itself does not exist and is just a legend.[5]



  • The name Crystalsapien is a combination of "crystal" and "sapien", which altogether means "intelligent being made of crystal"; it was first used on-screen by Maxamilian Tennyson in the 2016 Ben 10 movie event Alien X-Tinction.
  • Sugilite is regarded as the only Crystalsapien in the original Ben 10 continuity.[5] However, Crystalsapiens can exist as a full species in certain universes, such as the Vilgax Attacks Timeline and (supposedly) Maxamilian's Dimension.
  • The alternate Crystalsapien design seen in Omniverse is inspired by Gundam.[3]
  • Before making their debut in the reboot series, it was confirmed that the Omnitrix from that series contains Crystalsapien DNA.[7] Therefore, Chromastone is one of the countless aliens whose DNA pod was glimpsed in the episode "Innervasion Part 5: High Override".
    • Initially, there are no plans for Chromastone to physically appear in the reboot.[7] However, it was later revealed the statement was made to prevent spoilers for the movie event Alien X-Tinction.
  • Although they are from different universes, Crystalsapiens can absorb Captain Marvel's cosmic energy blasts.[3]
