* I.T. shows what its like being the Supreme Leader and Rachel finally snaps under the stress. Chad claims he's been doing this for five years and as his debut episode shows, has several extracurricular activities. Is it any wonder he lost his mind?

* In a weird way, the DNK foreshadowed Grandfather: their universe is a place were kids rule over adults, treating them like slaves, and torment other kids who aren't DNK. In the prime verse, the KND in its current form was founded to overthrow Grandfather who...enslaved all children, ruling them as slaves, and is no friend to adults who aren't him either.

** For one, the fact that every human child grows into an adult means that the virus has to be extremely well-spread on our planet. Furthermore, human kids can't be turned into adults by mere exposure to the virus, as if so entering adulthood would be determined by exposure to your parents instead of age. So it seems the adulthood virus has a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virus_latency Virus Latency]] stage which lasts for the first thirteen years in the host's system.

to:

** For one, if having 3/4ths of a species be adults is considered "extermination worthy" by GKND standards, then the aliens that make up the GKND must be able to survive without living adult members of their species. Unless the entirety of the GKND is made of immortals (who can't be killed by accident), there has to be SOME way for the aliens to maintain their populations; either cloning technology is a big thing or most alien races can reproduce as kids.

*** And furthermore, what is growing up like for beings who aren't infected with the virus? In a world where "adult" means "boring," it could be that people who aren't infected by adulthood grow into capable beings that have experience to back them, but ''also'' the freedom and awareness to live lives more fulfilling than anything humanity's adults have.

*** Consider how Numbuh 1's analysis of earth in the GKND trailer implies that this level of infection is a particularly bad case; that means most alien species have at least some sizeable population that's not just a "kid" in the sense that they're underage, but in the sense that they aren't infected with the virus at all. Now, consider that "more than 3/4ths of (humanity) are adults" could ''just'' mean that the virus is in it's active stage in 3/4ths of the population; if Virus Latency is the case, then ''100%'' of humanity is actually ''infected''. [[spoiler: Suddenly the GKND's decision to wipe out the planet becomes much harder; even the KND of earth and the countless kids living there are still carriers, even if they aren't adults.]]

** For one, the fact that every human child grows into an adult means that the virus has to be extremely well-spread on our planet. Furthermore, human kids don't just turn into adults via exposure to the virus, or else adulthood would be determined by exposure to your parents instead of age. So it seems that adulthood has a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virus_latency Virus Latency]] stage, and it's inactive for the first thirteen years in the host's system. That means that it's not just adults who have the virus; literally ''every human on earth'' is infected, with kids just being dormant carriers.
*** But wait! What about alien species? Consider how Numbuh 1's analysis of earth in the GKND trailer implies that this is a bad case; which means most alien species have at least some population that's not just a "kid" in the sense that they're underage, but in the sense that they aren't infected with the virus at all.

[[spoiler: Suddenly the GKND's decision to wipe out the planet becomes much harder; even the KND of earth and the countless kids living there are still carriers, even if they aren't adults. Yet.]]
*** The fact that the latency kicks in at 13 is also particularly devious, as it means the survival of the species relies on humans whose adulthood viruses are in the active stage; every human being capable of reproduction, aka continuing the species, is in the active stage of the virus. Consider that many latent viruses don't repopulate ''themselves'' until the active stage, and you get the implication that in alien races where adulthood latency hits in some time ''after'' puberty, there's a slight possibility that a 100%-infected species like humanity could get rid of the virus by breeding it out; if a theoretical alien reproduces while the virus is in it's latent stage, they can potentially use medicine to prevent their offspring from having the virus, like we have for [[https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/understanding-hiv-aids/fact-sheets/24/70/hiv-medicines-during-pregnancy-and-childbirth HIV pregnancies]]. Within a generation or two, the population has taken a hit, but you've gone from 100% infection to 0% infection. Except humans can't do that; once a 100% infection rate is reached, humanity has no choice but to propagate it or die out.
** Consider the AdultsAreUseless or mindset of the show, and suddenly you wonder; what if the real reason all adults are either evil or inefficient is ''because'' of the virus?
*** This opens the possibility that the GKND aren't filled with ''children'' so much as non-adults; while the KND of Earth is filled with ChildSoldiers, what if the GKND isn't? What if the rest of the galaxy doesn't need ten-year-olds to put their lives at risk, because their parents are willing and ''able'' to do it for them?

** Apart from Moosk, no adult on the show has ever stood up to adult tyranny, rampaging monsters, or supervillains on their own. A few have helped the KND fight, but for the most part, nobody over the age of 13 seems willing or able to help. The only alternative to using ChildSoldiers is letting the world burn.
