The Anur System is the sixth episode of And Beyond. It is a Halloween special.

Plot Summary

"Viewers beware, you're in for Zs'Skayr! Join Horas on a special extended episode of And Beyond as we explore the entire system of Anur, a monstrous, chaotic collection of planetoids and rifts that all connect to the dangerous, radioactive mineral known as Corrodium. A system of rich history filled with wars, survival, change, and harmony. In the cosmos where creatures of horror are born, who are the real monsters here? Keep the lights on and don't tread alone, unless you're feeling brave..."

Scout Lunas, sole Plumber of The Anur System, has received reports from citizens of Anur that they have spotted Zs'Skayr. Zs'Skayr was banished from his castle five years ago by Ben Tennyson utilizing Atomix to create an artificial miniature sun (which Ben calls his "Fusion Cuisine"), preventing Zs'Skayr from entering.

To prevent causing a scene, the Plumbers send Horas to investigate each main location of Anur to track him down. Horas has been upgraded with a camouflage device that allows him to replicate the appearance of being around him.

After a lengthy trek around the system Horas finds himself at Zs'Castle Zs'Skayr. He enters through the front door and flies down to the lab, and scans for Prypiatosian energy signatures, to no result. Horas calls Ben, who also notes that the rejuvenation chambers used to try to revive the Vladats have been repaired. Ben prepares to fly over to create a new Fusion Cuisine, but Horas involuntarily drops the call as the lights start to go out.

Zs'Skayr reveals himself, happy to hear Ben is on his way so that he may have his revenge, and ends the episode by overshadowing Horas.


Major Events







  • This is the first time The Ink Tank has animated Ben Tennyson in human form for an official production, and cast Paxton Lee to voice him.
  • This is the first time Horas has interacted directly with other characters from 5 Years Later, officially tying the two series together.
  • This is the first And Beyond to feature aliens from the Classic Series of Ben 10.
  • This episode was originally going to be the fourth episode, not the sixth. It was delayed due to the lengthy production causing The Ink Tank to miss the deadline, which was October 31st, 2019. This caused some changes upon its release.
    • Millit Lagish were mentioned in the previous episode, despite not being covered until this one.
    • The Zs'Skayr plotline was added-in to help tie together the episode's narrative, and was not part of the 2019 script. It was added-in only three weeks before airing, but after learning a lot of new techniques to pull off the Krypton and Vegeta episode, The Ink Tank felt comfortable taking on the challenge, and wrote in new scenes and altered previous ones to account for this.
    • The Sonaraquids segment was also not part of the 2019 script. It was added after The Ink Tank realized this episode would have nine transformations, and created one more to have a full Monster Playlist.
  • In January 2021, YouTube set the episode to "Made for Kids", against The Ink Tank's wishes, disabling the comment section.
