The Rust Bucket 3 is originally a standard issue plumber jet. Kevin added some of his extra alien gadgets that he's picked up here and there to it also. This jet was first used to find an alien that had been stealing from NASA they used computer outlets to track down the alien and stop his plans.


  • The jet can interface with Plumber badges.
  • It has a cargo area where the exit is that holds Kevin's and Ben's cars, with tunnels leading to different emergency exits.
  • The jet can access any database on Earth, even secure government ones.
  • It is extremely fast, and can be used as a spaceship too as seen in Ultimate Aggregor. It can also function underwater.
  • The jet has manual and autopilot settings, laser weapons and missile launchers.


It first appeared in the first episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Fame, when Kevin said that he wanted to use "The Rust Bucket", but after Ben asked if Kevin actually wanted to drive all the way to Florida, Kevin said that they would use "the new one".

It reappeared with a new look and color which resembled the Proto-TRUK.
