* "Most Wanted Wish": I can easily believe "I wish I was the most wanted kid in the world" would be allowed by the rules... but how can making every girl want him romantically be one of the effects of that wish? That pretty blatantly violates the "no affecting true love" rule.

* Why does Fairy Court have to take away child's fairies if they reveal their existence? ''Meet Oddparents'' shows and lampshades how easy it is to just erase memories of the person who found out. Kids are kids, they aren't good at keeping secrets and if you take their faires away for something like that, they will become miserable again. I just find it weird...

* If [[Voodoo Dolls You Doo dolls]] are so dangerous, and fairies intentionally keep them secret from godkids, why aren't You Doo doll wishes prohibited by Da Rules? The book only give a warning of being dangerous, and Timmy almost ''died'' because his own You Doo doll was about to be destroyed in a wood chipper! Seems rather half-assed to keep it a secret but not actually ban the wish...

\n** You know how Da Rules say that your wishes can't actually hurt anyone? I always kind of assumed that Cosmo and Wanda didn't cause the assassination, [[LoopholeAbuse they just did something that influenced it. Whatever it was, Maryanne got away with it.]]

* From "Hassle in the Castle": Several episodes ("Timmy's Secret Wish" and "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker" for starters) make it clear that once a godkid loses their godparents, everything they ever wished for is undone. So when Maryanne lost Cosmo and Wanda, why wasn't the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand undone? Why did that stay a part of history?

** Da Rules forbid granting wishes that break the law -- that's reason behind not only the "no wishing for money" rule (stealing and counterfeiting are illegal) but a rule that you can't wish for ''anything'' that would require stealing it from someone else (like sold out tickets). So yes, providing tobacco or alcohol to minors or illegal drugs to anyone would definitely be forbidden by Da Rules ([[LoopHoleAbuse depending on where the kid is when they make the wish, of course...]])

*** Or the fairies would refuse to do it, if they actually cared about their godkid.

*** If the book itself is the size if a friggin' encyclopedia, there's probably some rules we don't know about yet. The best guess is a "most likely", but it's best to wait.
*** A winning lottery ticket would probably break the "no cheating in competitions" rule.

* In "Land Before Timmy", Chester still has his braces. Due to Timmys anti-technology wish, even metallurgy doesn't exist. Are they chiseled from stone or what?

** Well, for one, [[CameBackWrong Eddie's not exactly ship-shape when their magic brings him back to life - trying that same thing on a human being would probably just bring them back as some sort of decaying zombie.]] Also, it's been implied a few times that Da Rules can be disregarded by fairies if they grant a wish that they don't perceive as rule-breaking. Cosmo and Wanda didn't know that there was a dead gerbil buried beneath Mrs. Turner's garden, and the wish wasn't specifically to bring him back, and even if someone like Jorgan was able to find out about the violation, I doubt he'd care enough about it to demand that it be undone - an undead gerbil doesn't really run the risk of exposing the existence of fairies to the world, so there's not much harm as long as Timmy explains it was unintentional.
