** Most of the endgame with Drakken and Shego, which starts when Eric is kidnapped. She found someone who wasn't wierded out by what she did, and when trying to save him [[MurderTheHypotenuse Shego blatantly said that once Kim was out of the picture, maybe]] ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse she'd]]'' [[MurderTheHypotenuse date Eric]] - which results in Kim swinging at her until a punch connects, sending Shego across the bridge they're on, and she's still swinging a bit after she hits the ground. [[spoiler:She finds Eric, only to discover that he was a synthodrone the entire time and that it was all a ruse. All of what happened between them didn't mean anything. She was so easily played by her arch-foes, and she was broken. Maybe she wasn't cut out for crimefighting anyways, and she doesn't know if there's a ''real'', human person out there who could be with her.]] The flame is rekindled thanks to Ron, and it's payback time. At this point, it can be suspected that her two main motivators are [[ThePowerOfLove love]][[note]]Realizing her feelings for Ron[[/note]] and [[ThePowerOfHate hate]][[note]]Finally snapping at her foes, who time and time again intruded in her life and attempted, many of them gleefully, to kill her many numerous other times[[/note]]. The very first thing she does when she's face to face with Drakken is punch him across the room. Just before that, right after Drakken finished gloating and found himself next to her, she clenched her fist, already ready to pummel him. To note: the last time [[NonActionBigBad Drakken]] was directly attacked by Kim was in Sitch In Time - where he was turned into a massive muscled fighter, and that was {{Retcon}}ed by the destruction of the Tempius Simia Idol. She proceeded to toss Shego into a wall - and she's actually seen reeling from the hit - and leaped off Synthodrone 901's head, which would likely have snapped a normal human neck.

* [=DNAmy=] has two of the villains attracted to her (Dr. Drakken and Monkey Fist), at least initially, and even Mr. Barkin is more disturbed by her [[MadScientist evil science]] than by her, personally -- all despite her being overweight, bucktoothed and dumpy. Could be interpreted as a feminist message about looking beyond external appearances.
** Actually, Barkin finds her annoying from the beginning, but he's reacting to her aggressively clingy personality rather than her appearance. (Also, annoyance seems to be Barkin's default state anyway.)

Could be interpreted as a feminist message about looking beyond external appearances.
** Actually, Barkin finds her annoying from the beginning, but he's reacting to her aggressively clingy personality rather than her appearance. (Also, annoyance seems to be Barkin's default state anyway.)
* So, according to the "Animology" personal quiz, Kim and Senor Senior Junior are soul mates. Kim is a globe-hopping Type-A overachiever. Junior is a lazy, narcissistic, RichIdiotWithNoDayJob. It doesn't make sense that these two personality types would be soul mates...or does it? Kim is the kind of girl that Junior would have to make a massive self-improvement effort to win over, and Junior is the kind of guy that a girl like Kim would see as a "project" she could make into something better. It's a romantic-comedy staple, really.
** Also, Kim's real soul mate (according to the creators) is lazy and prone to AcquiredSituationalNarcissism. It ''almost'' got it right...
* The [[BuffySpeak 'dino-thing']] in ''Partners'' went on a rampage... and was attempting to eat the various signs. Standard monster destruction in American Suburbs? Nah, that thing was hungry (and with that much mass and being newly "born", boy does it need food!). As Ron notes,
--> ''"That thing has a dino-sized appetite!"''
* The most straightforward explanation for why Shego is a sidekick rather than an independent villain in her own right is her [[BrilliantButLazy lack of initiative]] and [[CreativeSterility creativity]]. A few hints supporting that conclusion:
** "Two to Tutor": Shego draws a total blank when trying to decide on a field-test target for Junior's criminal training. Junior has to supply her with an idea by coming up with a web search.
** "A Sitch in Time": The one time Shego apparently ''does'' come up with a plan of her own, the plan doesn't ''really'' involve any original thought on her part -- [[TemporalParadox her future self repeats what she remembers her past self being told by her future self...]]
* Kim kicking Shego into the tower, in context of So the Drama alone, seems out of nowhere. However if you look at all three seasons leading up to that, how many times Shego has tried to kill Kim (and the eagerness she did it - for example eagerly trying to decide between "whipped Possible", "minced Possible", and a "Kimmie frappe" in ''Two to Tutor''), suddenly it becomes more of a culmination pushed over by the situation than just taking a random kick.
* Kim's disdain of Larry may seem out of character even by her season one JerkAss standards but look at him for a moment. He is an uber geek who dreams of being a supervillain. Remind you of anyone? A BigBad from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' perhaps? He makes Warren Meers look suave in comparison, and Kim very much comes across as a fan of the series or at least the equivalent alternate knock off. With that in mind it makes perfect sense that she wouldn't like him.
* Over the course of the series, several countries around the world (Norway, Japan, Canada, France, United Kingdom, Mexico, Germany, Italy, China, Morocco) are settings of Kim and Ron's adventures, and all those countries have pavilions at '''[[https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/destinations/epcot/ Epcot's World Showcase]]''' at Walt Disney World. So when an interactive "treasure-hunt" style attraction was created in Epcot's World Showcase, it was based on ''Kim Possible'' and called ''[[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Kim_Possible_World_Showcase_Adventure Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure]]''. (Five years after the ''Kim Possible'' series had concluded, the interactive attraction at Epcot was changed into ''[[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Agent_P%27s_World_Showcase_Adventure Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure]]''.)

* Señor Senior, Senior's first act of villainy is to drain all of Europe's power to ransom for another island. It's played off as a bored rich guy's first foray into villainy, but seeing as hospitals and water treatment plants need electricity he'd have started killing people by the thousands in just days.

** Shego's "employment" with Drakken seems more like a part-time thing, almost a hobby. Sure, he mentions contracts every now and then, but several episodes (especially "Two to Tutor" and "Clean Slate") show that she can go on independent jobs (or just laze on the beach) whenever the hell she wants.

*** Probably not a lot, if anything. Warhok and Warmonga seemed to be treating world conquering as a hobby. Not to amass resources or because Earth was valuable, but because it was fun. So, it probably works on the same concept of asking why doesn't Senor Senior Senior ask for government help with his schemes. They don't really need it and whatever their government can supply is probably woefully inadequate to what the Lowardians already have.

** If two individuals pursuing a personal vendetta can deploy that kind of firepower, they (and other warlords like them) probably ''are'' the Lowardian government.

*** True. After all, a dog or cat gets 10-15 years... though not sentient, of course, they often become an integral part of the family. Perhaps when the time comes, Rufus will be succeeded by his son as [[TeamPet]] and loyal friend.
