* In a meta wy, it makes sense that Foop has become more prominent in later seasons. Poof has, of course, been in fewer episodes than his parents so as Poof's EvilTwin, Foop has appeared in more episodes than his parents.

* "Turner Back Time" has Timmy wishing his ancestor Ebeneezer Turner had chosen to be a railroad tycoon, eventually making the Turner family rich. Now, before anyone asks, let's just say that before Timmy changed the past, we've seen Remy's ancestor Orville Buxaplenty choose to be railroad tycoon, and the altered past ''has resulted in the Buxaplenties losing all their money to the Turners!''



* In Hastle in the Castle we find out that one of Cosmo and Wanda's past godkids wishes caused WWI (and indirectly WWII) meaning that Cosmo and Wanda are partially responsible for all those deaths.
** And another past godkid wished that tornadoes would always hit trailer parks meaning all those deaths and destruction's are also Cosmo and Wanda's fault.
** [[JustFollowingOrders Cosmo and Wanda have no say in the matter.]]
* Some episodes imply that Fairy Godparents have the power to kill and revive people. The former is terrifying enough but the later means that when the fairy leave the godkid wouldn't that get unwished too?

** Another way to bypass Da Rules when it comes to killing someone is to use magic to help set up a situation where the person gets killed (and not kill the person with the magic directly) That might have been how [[spoiler: one of Cosmo and Wanda's previous godkids killed Archduke Ferdinand and started WW1]]

** While Timmy was at risk for that, it was said in "Abra-Catastrophe" that it was rare for a child to have godparents very long.
** "Channel Chasers" presents that like real life childhood memories are vaguely remembered. It doesn't make it horrific or sad. When a child loses their fairy godparent and that fairy previously took on a animal form then that is replaced by a real animal instead. For example when Adult!Timmy's children dug up a time capsule, Adult!Timmy stares at a photo of a two fish in a bowl and smiles. The fish in the photos would have been Cosmo and Wanda, but he doesn't remember them, only the existence of the fish would trigger a ''happy thought''.

* One of the 2 characters that worked for Flappy Bob said in School's Out: The Musical "I'll get the broccoli and the funnel!". You might think this is PlayedForLaughs until you realize that they were going to shove funnels up the kids mouths and then shove broccoli into the funnel maybe accidentally choking the kids.

* Children will lose their godparents when they are not miserable anymore. ("I'm happy and I don't need my godparents anymore). Timmy will go great lengths to keep his, so will he never be quite happy enough to lose his godparents?

** According to "Wishing Well" such kids suffers from Over Wishing Disorder. If the case becomes too severe, Jorgen will take them to a retraining camp, ironically called, "The Wishing Well". Also in "A wish too far" Timmy exploited his fairies so much, that the fairy court took them away. Even after redeeming himself, Jorgen ''still'' felt the need to punish him.

* "Fairly OddPet" Sparky shows a portfolio of his previous owner. The one before Timmy apparently "played dead" until Sparky left.
* A lot of people have pointed out Timmy's {{Jerkass}} behavior towards Cosmo, Wanda, and even the likes of Chester and AJ as the seasons have gone on. Let's think about this for a minute: another major {{Character Derailment}} has come in the form of Timmy's parents, who slowly went from being busy and overworked to providing comments such as Dad saying the only reason he gives Timmy an allowance is because calling the chores Timmy does "labor" would get him in trouble with the law, and Mom mentioning that she should "maybe...start making dinner for three" when she sees Timmy ([[ItMakesSenseInContext technically a fly with Timmy's body]]) eating from the garbage..."again." Most of this behavior is {{Played For Laughs}}, by the way. Now, combine these [[ParentalNeglect questionable]] [[AbusiveParents displays]] with the fact that most children who are abused end up becoming abusive themselves, and it all adds up to a pretty disturbing conclusion: all the times Timmy acts like a jerk to his Godparents, or even his friends, is because ''he's copying the abusive behavior his parents give him''. Combine that with Timmy's history of neglecting his pets, and that brief glimpse of "Channel Chasers" where an adult Timmy leaves his children with a Vicky-bot while he goes to work (even though his ten-year-old self vowed "not to make the same mistakes [his] parents made"), and you realize that there's a pretty depressing cycle going on here...

* Dimmsdale has a veterinarian who is so [[AxeCrazy Snip Crazy]] that he'll gleefully neuter any animal, even if it's medically unsound, dangerous and illogical to do so (as in the case with Vicky's goldfish and parrot).
* In "A Bad Case Of Diary-Uh!", one of Timmy's secret phobias is a fear of feet. View the special "Abra-Catastrophe!", which shows in a flashback how an 8-year-old Timmy got stuck with Vicky as his babysitter. One of the things Vicky forces the young Timmy to do is give her a pedicure while she sticks out her bare feet to receive a coat of toenail polish. So his fear of feet may be a childhood psychological trauma caused by Vicky. Which is not surprising at all, considering she's likely responsible for ''many more'' scarring traumas to poor Timmy. Including ''exploiting'' said traumas.
* The character Maryann in the episode "Hassle in the Castle". It is revealed she is in the Hall of Infamy because she used Cosmo and Wanda's magic to have Archduke Franz Ferdinand assassinated, thus starting World War I. It gets worse than that: because she caused World War I, she also indirectly allowed Adolf Hitler to rise to power, resulting in World War II. In other words, Maryann has a massive (albeit indirect) body count in the form of military and civilian casualties, POW executions, and Holocaust victims. What's more, because of her actions, nuclear weapons were created, thus starting the Cold War, and eventually, 9/11. You think Vickie is the most evil character in the show? Ha! At least she doesn't kill! Maryann single-handedly caused many of the modern world's problems (terrorism, nuclear arms races, the divided Korea, economic problems etc.), making her THE most evil character in the entire series.
