*** Thirdly, when Wheeler shows up and does little more than threaten a gang member, presumably a lifelong criminal and fighter, with his empty fist...the gang member flees like a scared rat. This means that Wheeler has A--done this before and B--kicked the shit out of someone who wasn't as smart and didn't run. The word apparently got around, you fuck with the poor, you fuck with Wheeler...and if you fuck with Wheeler, you end up looking for your teeth on the sidewalk. He's basically Ginger Batman.

[[note]] Mind there was a later episode where Wheeler goes back in time to keep himself from getting his ring, and it retcons this scene so the thug puts up a ''bit'' of a fight. [[/note]]

** Probably nicknames; Hoggish Greedly's grandfather is named Don Porkaloin, which doesn't sound quite as sinister.

** Probably nicknames; Hoggish Greedly's grandfather is named Don Porkaloin, which doesn't sound quite as sinister.sinister.
** With at least Greedly, it is implied his family suffers from several generations of deformities which causes them to develop unusual skin color, deformed faces and teeth, and pig-like ears. So people may just feel "sorry" for these rich disfigured folks who, like Lootin Plunder (no excuses for that one though...) seem to be [[WellIntentionedExtremist honest but utterly ruthless businessmen]] who just want to build businesses and jobs for others, and make some big cash, but aren't exactly warlords.
** Now the real insanity emerges when you realize that Dr. Blight's evil BS may be because she drove herself insane: she hated her sister and her movie career, and [[WordOfGod it's stated]] she attempted some kind of cosmetic surgery on herself (possibly to outdo her sister) which disfigured half her face and probably drove her nuts in the process. So in other words, pure vanity+self-disfigurement=what was your plan bitch?!

* When the Planeteers all get their rings, Kwame, Gi and Linka are just doing things they normally do and Ma-Ti rescues an animal. What's Wheeler doing? He's [[{{Badass}} stopping a thug.]] In addition, he gets control of the one ring that's hardest to use without maiming or killing someone, and tends to manifest in a tight laser beam. While the other rings might be able to do more damage, Wheeler gets the precision weapon. He's also less environmentally aware than the others. What does this mean? Gaia didn't need another person who knew the best way to save trees, she wanted someone who could fight and gave him the ability to end a threat if needed, then and there.

* Why would ANYONE ever buy oil from a company owned by [[ObviouslyEvil a disfigured "pig man" named Hoggish Greedly, or buy weapons from an arms dealer named Plunder, or go within a country mile of anyone named Sly Sludge]], etc.? Either these were their nicknames/codenames or their parents '''hated''' them.

* We've already seen that [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower the Heart Ring]] can be potentially the ''deadliest'' of the five Rings Gaia gave to the Planeteers. So why did she hand it to a kind little boy who'd never use it to its full potential, because of his kindness? She did it '''because''' Ma-Ti wouldn't abuse said powers of the Heart Ring -- which, if both the series and the comics are believed, can potentially include ''terrific'' skills like MoreThanMindControl, BrainWashing, [[ThebeastMaster command of wild life]], knocking people out, etc. [[spoiler: Confirmed with The BadFuture and ItsAWonderfulPlot episodes, which show what would Ma-Ti do if he used the Ring for his own benefit.]]

** There's even more to the scene in hindsight since while the [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower Heart Ring]] could become the most lethal Ring if used in just the right way, of the four remaining Rings, Fire is the easiest to utilize in a potentially deadly manner and therefore can't be put into the hands of a BloodKnight. The scene shows that despite his tendency to get physical, Wheeler is most definitely ''not'' a BloodKnight.
