Note: This is the Prime version of Cannonbolt, For his Reboot Counterpart, See Here

Cannonbolt is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Arburian Pelarota from the destroyed planet Arburia.

In the original series, he was voiced by Fred Tatasciore who also voices Ripjaws, Way Big & Ben 10,000.

In Alien Force through Ultimate Alien, he was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.

In Omniverse, he was voiced by David Kaye who also voices Max Tennyson.


He is a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural armor plating, and by curling up into a ball, much like an armadillo or pillbug, he can encase himself in his armor, becoming virtually invulnerable; also, in his balled-up form, he can roll across terrain at high speeds.

In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, Cannonbolt's armor is more curved, the stripe on his torso is gone, his eyes are now green, and the Omnitrix symbol is on his chest.

In Omniverse, Cannonbolt looks like a mix between his Alien Force/Ultimate Alien and Original Series looks, but is shorter. 11-year-old Ben has Cannonbolt's Omnitrix on his forehead like in the original series. In the original series, Cannonbolt is one of the most popular aliens during the Ben 10 series.

Ben 10

The first time Ben used Cannonbolt was in "The Big Tick", but it was an accidental transformation, Ben intended to turn into XLR8 to go to a fast-food restaurant; the first intentional transformation was made in the same episode to try to stop "The Great One" for destroying Earth. In "Ben 10,000" and "Ken 10", he now has black pants and more black around his forehead. Cannonbolt replaced Ghostfreak as the ninth alien from season 3 onward as Ghostfreak broke out of the Omnitrix as Zs'Skayr.

He was originally meant to be one of the original ten aliens, but was replaced by Ghostfreak & Diamondhead in production.


  • His Original voice actor, Fred Tatasciore is best known for voicing as Hulk from The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes through Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocksteady/Ivan Steranko from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012), Shifu from Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Kakuzu from Naruto Shippuden, Komodo, Zon and Munya from The Secret Saturdays.
