In Yellowstone Nation Park, Ben would rather run out for a hamburger than live off the land with Grandpa Max, but in trying to call forth XLR8, he instead gets a new and unwanted alien transformation, a roly poly alien that has trouble simply standing. Just then, a meteor strikes nearby, but it quickly proves to be a giant alien parasite ready to suck dry Earth's vitality. Three aliens follow, all of differing species, to worship this bug as it feeds. Running the gamut of his alien transformations, Ben can't find any who can handle this latest threat, forcing him to return to and figure out what his newest alien transformation can do.
