* Generally, "Grudge Match" in itself is about [[spoiler: debunking stereotypes]]. You would think the villain [[spoiler: Dr. Fenn would have his intelligence to compensate for his short size, because it would be complicated to think otherwise. But in reality, he ''doesn't'' have robotic expertise. In short [[note]] no pun intended [[/note]], he has nothing to compensate him, nothing but insecurity and the cunning deception that he built the robots.]]

** Even better, [[spoiler: she made Oliver to be ''different'' from your stereotypical nerd. She gave him a personality where he was protective, assertive, and eventually stood up to Dr. Fenn for stealing Vivian's robot.]]

* In "Grudge Match", Ron's "rules" are ultimately proven [[spoiler: wrong]] once the audience learns [[spoiler: that not only is Oliver a robot, but Vivian ''built'' him. If Ron's rules had been right, she would've built him as a [[NerdsAreSexy handsome kind of nerd]]. But ''she didn't''. Because she designed him to be the kind of boyfriend she'd care about. Sure she also wanted to build him as a front for someone people would take seriously as a robotics expert, but [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming she was still concerned for him when Dr. Fenn tried to (essentially) kill Oliver with a mallet]].]]

* Drakken's blue skin was most likely some freak lab accident. That's as far as we can guess.

** Which brings up the question: What were the moodulators for? the only practical use i can think of is keeping a surgeon calm in the operating room or keeping another stressful profession calm in a stressful work environment, and if that WAS the purpose of the things, why are emotions like joy, anger, love, and sadness involved?

** 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]]''.)
