Lemme tell ya somethin'...
~ Rath's slogan.

Rath is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of an Appoplexian from the planet Appoplexia.

He is voiced by John DiMaggio who also voiced Bender in Futurama.


Rath is a muscular humanoid tiger-like alien, He is orange and has black stores. The front of his torso and neck are white, His hand, feet, and mouth are white as well. On ease of wrists he has claws coming out. He has green eyes and has the Omnitrix symbol on his chest.


Though being Rath alters his mind (to the point where he tries harming Captain Nemesis for cheating in a race), he is one of Ben's more powerful & strongest alien forms due to having enough physical agility and strength to easily lift objects far larger than him and pummel most enemies with ease. Both Kevin and Gwen find Rath the most amusing of Ben's aliens, often laughing behind his back or out of Ben's hearing range while he is transformed into Rath.

Powers and Abilities

  • Enhanced Strength: Rath was easily able to lift a chair bolted to the floor, out of the ground.
    • Shockwave Generation: Rath is capable of creating shockwaves by simply punching the ground.
  • Powerful Roar: Rath uses this as an intimidation technique, similar to a tiger.
  • Enhanced Durability: Rath was able to tank a close range energy blast. Said energy blast also turned Rath's meal into ash and singed the floor.
  • Enhanced Stamina: Rath's advanced musculature is considerably more efficient. As a result, his muscles produce practically no fatigue toxins during physical activity. His virtually inexhaustible stamina enables him to exert himself at peak capacity for an undefined period of time without tiring at all.
  • Enhanced Reflexes: Rath was capable of attacking the Esoterica as quickly as they teleported next to him.
  • Enhanced Agility: Rath is capable of dodging energy blasts at close range.
  • Sharp Claws: Rath has a large, retractable claw on each of his knuckles which he can extend for stabbing weapons.


Ben 10: Alien Force

Ben first becomes Rath in "Con of Rath" (a play on Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) when the crown prince Tiffin sets off the Omnitrix's circuit, and caused it to keep Ben in that state for the whole episode until the Tiffin leaves, and when Ben found out that Kevin knew about it all the time, he turned back into him to beat Kevin up.

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien

In "Duped", Rath spoke to Gwen on the phone and destroyed the Forever Knights' Plasma Beam Tank.

Ben 10: Omniverse

Rath's appearance is unchanged except for having different-shaped black eyebrows. He reappears in "It Was Them" to fight Dr. Animo's giant ants. It's later revealed that, unlike other Appoplexians, Rath does not wear any clothing, which is odd, considering that the Omnitrix usually adapts the user's clothing to the alien they turned into. During the events of "Secret of Dos Santos", due to Skurd's tinkering with the Omnitrix, Rath ended up speaking in Spanish and wearing luchador garb.
