Diamondhead is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Petrosapien from the planet Petropia.


Diamondhead is a silicon-based life form. His body is composed of durable green crystals. He sports four green crystal shards on his back and has a sharp head.

In the original series, Diamondhead wears a uniform which is black on the right half and white on the left with a black patch on the left shoulder where the Omnitrix symbol is.

In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, Diamondhead's torso is similar to Chromastone's, consisting of indigo crystal which has black lines and dots over it. There are now six crystal shards on his back instead of 4 and he now also sports two more on the front of his chest. He wears the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Gwen as Diamondhead has darker and shinier diamonds, thinner arms, a more rounded body, no shards on her back and a more square head. She wears a uniform like Ben's Diamondhead in original series, except it is half dark blue, half light blue. She wears the Omnitrix symbol on her left chest.

In Ben 10-Generator Rex: Heroes United, Diamondhead looks more real-world crystal-like due to being drawn in Generator Rex-style. He also has a blade on his elbow, similar to that of XLR8's.

In Ben 10: Omniverse, Diamondhead has clothing almost similar to the first series except that now instead of half black and half white, it is all black with one large green stripe down the middle up to his belt, and wears black pants. He has a green with white stripes belt on which he wears the Omnitrix symbol. Also Diamondhead no longer bears the crystals on his chest. The crystals on his back have grown in length also. His jaw is also larger. He also wears black shoes with green on the bottom.

11-year old Diamondhead looks almost identical to the original, but the left side of his suit is missing the black patch around the Omnitrix symbol. His jaw is also larger too. His eyes are green and the Omnitrix is recolored.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

File:Diamondhead 002.png

Diamondhead's body is composed of extremely thick organic green crystals. He has the ability to manipulate the atomic structure of his physiology at will, allowing him to form his limbs into diamond weapons, however he can control all crystals, regardless of it being part of his biological structure or not. He can fire crystal shards sequentially out of his hands, and as revealed in the Cartoon Network online game, Ben To The Rescue, he can create a powerful attack in which he expels shards in all directions, and as he aged these shards began to explode upon impact. He can make monstrous clusters of crystals, conjuring walls and forming crystal shields and ramps. He can reshape his projectiles into limited shapes, and can also form gaping hands to capture enemies. By Alien Force Diamondhead was skilled enough to levitate crystal prisms, as shown in Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 2. In Trouble Helix, he was capable of encasing enemies in crystals. It has been shown he can create crystals inside of objects and cause them to spike out. 

Diamondhead has the ability to regenerate, but to a limited extent.

Diamondhead's body resembles a living prism, allowing weapons similar to lasers to be refracted and rendered useless. In Vendetta, he was able to absorb energy blasts and redirect them, rather than just refracting. Diamondhead is also resistant to fire and heat, as displayed in Framed.

Diamondhead has superhuman strength, easily able to overpower Vilgax in a one-on-one brawl.

Because of Diamondhead being made out of organic crystals, Diamondhead is immune to aging and time rays as crystal doesn't age.

Diamondhead can shatter if exposed to strong sonic vibrations and might even fall unconscious. While Diamondhead can regenerate limbs, there is a limit to how much damage he can recover from.

The two shards on his back can also leave him stuck on a wall or other surface he's been knocked into.

Alternate FutureEdit

In an alternate timeline's future, Diamondhead has regained predominant clothing. As well as a black-layered shirt, the Omnitrix symbol has moved to the center of his chest. His pants are now white and he has black boots. The diamond shards on his back are now bigger and are only the top ones, instead of the bottom ones. He seems more durable than before, but he still gets shattered by strong sonic vibrations, as shown in Ken 10. Since he is more durable than before, he also became a lot stronger than before. He can properly use his powers now and can create more crystal attacks.
