Ben 10 Inspired Dog Names In Pop Culture
Wildmutt has appeared in almost every iteration of the Ben 10 series, save Ben 10: Alien Force and the 2016 reboot series, at the time of writing. Indeed, this more so reflects Wildmutt's importance to the show, as the extraterrestrial canines simple yet unique appearance and powers have helped it standout amidst a sea of other, equally impressive aliens. Furthermore, Wildmutt is one of the few aliens in Ben's stable who's incapable of speaking. This has allowed the legendary and prolific voice actor Dee Bradley Baker to turn out a slew of truly fantastic performances as the benign orange beast's VO.
Wildmutt came to be one of Ben's go to aliens, as his incredible agility, razor sharp teeth and claws, and sonar like sense of smell made him well suited to deal with a variety of dangerous scenarios. Wildmutt has bested mechanical droids, armed robbers, extraterrestrial bounty hunters and some of Ben's most deranged arch nemeses with a combination of animal instincts and ingenuity on Ben's part. Ultimate Wildmutt, which was first introduced in the 32nd episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien's second season, is an upgraded form of Wildmutt that takes all of his traditional abilities, amplifies them, and adds in a few other new elements as well. Ultimate Wildmutt's fur changes from orange to red, and he sports a row of spikes on his back as well as a hooked horn on his tail. Perhaps most interestingly, Ultimate Wildmutt gains the ability to speak, eschewing the need for others to guess at his thoughts and intentions.
Overall, Wildmutt's powers, personality, and dog like demeanor have made him a fan favorite amongst Ben 10 lovers, so consider naming your dog after this memorable Ben 10 alien to pay homage to the series' original wild child.
