* BadFuture: [[spoiler:As Tippy Tinkertrousers appeared before the already-traumatized Kipper and his gang with a giant pair of robotic pants, he inadvertently causes them to go insane from the terror, and Mr. Krupp was blamed for his crime. Mr. Krupp was then fired from being principal of Jerome Horwitz Elementary School. As a result, Mr. Krupp didn't become Captain Underpants and the first three villains from the first three novels succeeded in accomplishing their goals.]]

This means that the moon was blown up, and there's two separate invasions of the earth- one by talking, flesh-eating toilets, and the other by giant zombies under the control of aliens.

* WeaksauceWeakness: Captain Underpants loses his power whenever someone pours water over his head. Likewise, his evil counterpart turns back to normal when someone snaps their fingers. For the record, this means that the only thing that can remove Captian's powers is a substance that covers seventy percent of the planet's surface, and his counterpart can be defeated by a poetry slam.

One has to wonder what ''exactly'' happened in the past of Jerome Horwitz Elementary that made them include those.



** The 10th book's first chapter is dedeicated to explaining to the child readers why [[StopHavingFunGuys adults are so mean to them]] and why [[NeverMyFault they would rather blame other people or things (like the kids) for problems that are their own fault]].
