* The reason magic power is rendered useless by butterfly nets is because in a similar way to a Faraday cage these prevent the giant magic wand at fairy world that provides a source of magic to all fairies to charge their wands, and fairies are physically weak so that they can't break through it (and can't transform into something that does due to having no magic power) also is possible that Jorgen is simply afraid of them and doesn't realizes that being the strongest fairy may be able to break free of one.

* Everyone should be fortunate that the Da Rules keep them away from [[HumansAreBastards more horrible and vicious things]]. Such as no rule on [[BrokenMasquerade revealing]] the existence of fairies, [[HypnotizeThePrincess interfere with true love]], [[CruelAndUnusualDeath allow to kill or maim]], [[ForgedMessage writing fake deeds],[[ZombieApocalypse raising the dead]], [[CounterfeitCash wishing for money]], and other things.

** Speaking of unwishing, wouldn't have Maryann's wishes been unwished when she lost her fairies? it's part of Da Rules, ya know... or was it just too big and impactful to reset?

* Imagine a EnfantTerrible or an abused or neglected child having fairies. Said truly miserable child could use his fairies to [[TheDogBitesBack lash out]] or say hello to [[Manga/NaruTaru Hiroko Kaizuka]].

* So, there's one episode where Mama Cosma and Big Daddy are shown to be on a date. If the two got married, then Cosmo and Wanda would be [[BrotherSisterIncest step-siblings]]. Yeah.

** Or it's simply their LogicalWeakness, as fairies have ''butterfly'' wings. Well, usually.

* Fridge Tearjerker - every fairy godparent you see in the show is immortal or at least long-lived. Apparently, some of them can live for millions of years. And their god children are just humans who will die eventually. And not just that, when they reach adulthood, their godparents have to leave them and erase every memory of them. Now, imagine that you are a fairy who were just assigned to your first child. You get attached to that child and eventually, you'll start to love them as if they were your own child. But you won't even realize it and suddenly, they are treated as an adult who doesn't need their fairy anymore. So, that kid who you loved so much and treated as part of your family doesn't even know you exist anymore, but you still do. Some years pass, maybe you get assigned to another child and eventually you find out your first godkid died. And this cycle can last for thousands of years. You don't realize it because of the lighthearted nature of the show, but Cosmo and Wanda likely had to go through this too. And assuming that the live action movies aren't canon, Timmy is just one of those children they got attached to, but will eventually have to leave. And here's a kicker - one of their former godchildren, Denzel Crocker, is probably even more miserable as an adult than as a child, but they can't help him. It doesn't matter if their godchild will become miserable again, if not more miserable, after they leave - they have to. That's the law.
* Anyone else realized that Magical Duel, Fairy Idol and other such competitions are actually pretty creepy? If a child loses Magical Duel, they'll lose their godparent and will likely become miserable again, just because their godparents needed time to think about how to save them or because they just weren't clever and/or creative enough. And Fairy Idol gives random fairies a job that requires them to care for miserable children BASED SOLELY ON THEIR SINGING ABILITY and they don't care if you are a {{Jerkass}} or not - if Norm can win, anyone can.

* How could Jorgen have forgotten to include a "no wishing for a fairy baby" rule in Da Rules? Because the law against fairies having babies ''pre-dates'' Da Rules. Since they didn't start working as godparents for human children until after (and as a result of) forbidding fairies from having children, the rules for what kids could wish for didn't exist at the time. As Da Rules can be changed with the wave of a wand, thinking of a new rule and deciding to put it in at any time besides the time you think of it makes no sense, but remembering a law that already exists and thinking "Oh, right, better add that to this new rule book we're now using to record all the new rules" but forgetting to in the midst of establishing a new way of life for your entire species makes some sense.

* In "Dog's Day Afternoon", the episode where Timmy wishes to switch brains with Vicky's dog, Wanda at one point has a conversation with another fairy godmother whose godchild made a similar wish with a frog. We then cut to a little girl hopping like a frog and a frog squirming in terror as it is about to be dissected in a science class, afterwards [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse the situation is never brought up again]]. The fact that Timmy had to get the dog in his human body to reverse the wish makes the implications even more unsettling.
