* In Issue 2 of the comic, Zim uses the Gargantis Array [[spoiler: not as a weapon for Earth's destruction but instead to send embarrassing footage of Dib getting back in shape to literally ''the entire galaxy.'']] And at the end [[spoiler: Dib has once again isolated himself in his room, this time to hide from mockery while everyone is laughing outside.]] Zim could have simply done this in order to keep Dib off his back for a longer period of time, but combining some of the points made from the above discussion and well-known consequences of [[spoiler: cyber-bullying, specifically posting videos recorded unknowingly]], what if Zim's whole plan throughout Issues 1 and 2 was really [[spoiler: ''to drive Dib to suicide?'']]
** Meanwhile, Zim actually might not be getting away with his plan whether the above was his real intention or not. Since [[spoiler: Dib managed to destroy both Zim's voot and Gir's legs/rockets, unless he prepared a back-up plan or someone else with transportation comes along (which is unlikely, given the thing was known only as a myth) Zim very well might be trapped on the Gargantis Array forever!]] Not to mention this gets even worse for him if [[spoiler: his PAK requires charging (which he was once shown to be doing in an episode).]] Damn...what a way to begin the comic!
** And then there's Gir. [[spoiler:His legs were blown away, basically paralyzing him, with both Zim and Dib abandoning him in the halls of the array for a full two days or possibly even longer. Granted, it takes a lot to make Gir miserable, but that's still pretty callous on Zim and Dib's part.]]
** Good thing for NegativeContinuity...possibly.

** It might also be because all his answers to the test were "human slave", not too inaccurate a description of a person earning minimum wage in fast food preparation. In other words, instead of making him ruler over humans, it literally made him a slave himself.

** The robot parents were there from the first episode, they weren't created for the Parent Teacher Night.

** Also, seeing that Membrane was bummed out that he couldn't legally perform certain experiments in one of the unaired episodes, did he know what Gaz did and allow it? Did he also know that they could potentially harm/kill Dib (which...Gaz most likely intended at least the former at some point)?

* The trip from Conventia to Earth is shown to take six months, and the Irken transmission that departed at the same time as Zim is shown to reach Earth just before him for Dib to receive. Zim is stated to have been absent from Foodcourtia for twenty years according to Sizz-Lorr in "The Frycook What Came From All That Space". The Massive (with the Resisty's ship following close behind) is clearly shown flying through a sun in "Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars"; the closest star to Earth that isn't the Sun, Alpha Centauri, is four light-years away from the solar system. How can we reconcile all this information? [[UsefulNotes/Relativity Relativistic]] TimeDilation and FasterThanLightTravel.

** To elaborate: At the beginning of the series, Zim's Voot Runner does not have an [=FTL=] drive. Earth is presumably twenty light-years away from Conventia. The Conventia transmission and Zim depart at the same time. The Conventia transmission is going at the speed of light, so it reaches Earth in twenty years, having experienced no subjective time between the origination of the transmission and its arrival. Zim is going at ''almost but not quite'' the speed of light, so he and Gir reach Earth in twenty years plus a little bit more, having experienced a subjective time of six months - enough to sing the entire Doom Song. The Massive, the Resisty ship, the Planet Jackers, Mars, etc. all have FTL drives, as does Tak's Spittle Runner. Presumably, Zim later upgrades his ship to have [=FTL=]. Considering that later during "Walk for Your Lives" the other Invaders are implied to be still in the process of conquest, it is possible that [=FTL=] drives compatible with Zim and other Invaders' ships were not in existence at the time Zim left Conventia, but had been invented by the time Zim got to Earth.

* Sergeant Slab Rankle goes to [[KnightTemplar horrific lengths to protect his mall]]. But when you realize this is a world where homicidal aliens, giant mutant lice, and other nightmares [[CrapsackWorldrun around unnoticed]], [[ProperlyParanoid some of that might be understandable.]]

* The Tallests seem to prefer Tak over Zim. Why is that? Well, if you look closely, she's slightly taller than him, and we all know how important height is to an Irken's dignity.

dignity. Of course, it might also have something to do with the fact that Zim singlehandedly brought down Operation Impending Doom II.



** This would mean Zim and all other Irkens are nothing more than robotic personalities stored in the PAKs that have been given a semi-organic body to control.
** Even more horrifying when you consider the true masters of the Irken Empire: the Control Brains. As shown in "The Frycook What Came All The Way From Space" and "Tak: The Hideous New Girl", they make leadership decisions like reprogramming, judging, etc. And what do they look like? Giant PAKs.

** This episode serves to make the larger scope of the show itself much, much more chilling when you consider that GIR isn't actually "crazy" as the episode's name implies, but that ''he's actually functioning the same as all standard SIR units are supposed to.'' GIR's mentality and actions here are the same as within every other Invader's companion robot, all of whom have masters who are actually competent at their job. If this is just what the subservient robot slaves are capable of doing to a planet all on their own, just imagine how ruthless and dangerous the full force of an actual trained, sanctioned Irken pre-invasion mission must be.
