* ShaggyDogStory: Ultimately, Kim and Ron aren't responsible for Drakken's plan being foiled, it being because the mind-switch machine drained the timeshare lair's power and Drakken decided to engage the SelfDestructMechanism. Furthermore, Drakken was able to easily capture Kim and Ron in their swapped state and they ultimately need help from Sergeant Hobbs to escape.

Kim is surprised when she receives a call for help from [[ArchEnemy Dr. Drakken]] of all people, although it turns out to actually be a one Private Cleotis Dobbs, whose body Drakken has stolen for some sinister purpose. Before heading off to save him, Kim laments about the upcoming cheer regionals, and both she and Ron have a discussion about how easy the other's life is. Soon, they arrive in Drakken's new lair located near the Grand Canyon, and, though they manage to escape with Dobbs, end up having their minds switched in the process.

At school, both learn how hard the other actually has it; Kim finds that Ron is bullied and generally mistreated by the student body, while Ron learns that Kim's popularity results in her volunteering for many projects, leaving her quite busy. They also learn that Drakken stole Dobbs body to steal "the Neutronolizer" a powerful military weapon no one seems to know anything about. Eventually, the three track Drakken to his new lair (a time share with Professor Dementor) but are captured.

Kim receives a call for help from... {{archenemy}} Doctor Drakken! Actually, it's Private Dobbs, a soldier kidnapped by Dr. Drakken and subjected to a brain swap so that Drakken can sneak into a military base in the Dobbs's body and steal a secret "Neutronaliser" device. Team Possible rescues Dobbs-in-Drakken's-body, but in the process Kim and Ron get themselves brain-swapped.

that Drakken can sneak into stole Dobbs body to steal "the Neutronolizer" a powerful military base in weapon no one seems to know anything about. Eventually, the Dobbs's three track Drakken to his new lair (a time share with Professor Dementor) but are captured.

Drakken returns to his normal
body and steal decides to use the Neutronolizer since the world did not meet his demands [[ItMakesSenseInContext (due to him making his ultimatum with a secret "Neutronaliser" device. Team Possible rescues Dobbs-in-Drakken's-body, puppet)]], but in it blows the process power, so he decides to destroy the base. Freed by Dobbs, Kim & Ron use the Kimmunicator's power core to power the brain switch machine and Ron get restore themselves brain-swapped.
to normal, as the base explodes, leaving the Neutronolizer okay (as it's "dang near indestructible"). Back at Middleton High, Ron is surprised to be given gifts by his former D-Hall bullies, with Kim explaining she gave them a little "sensitivity training" while still in his body.

* TheMeddlingKidsAreUseless: When you think about it, Kim and Ron didn't do anything to foil Drakken's plan. Not only did they get captured due to being in each other's bodies, but Drakken's plot was foiled on its own due to the power being drained out of the timeshare lair. Basically, the only reason they went there was to switch back to normal.

* IdTellYouButThenIdHaveToKillYou: While Dobbs (in Drakken's body) accidentally mentions the Neutronaliser, Kim's dad jokingly asks if this trope applies. Dobbs [[{{Beat}} pauses awkwardly for a moment]], and tells everybody to forget that he'd said anything.

** In any case, all Dobbs knows about the Neutronaliser it its name and the fact that he's supposed to keep everybody but authorized personnel away from it.
