*** This is sometimes justified though, in that the kids often end up dealing with toxic waste and radioactive chemicals where a) it would be too dangerous for them to get close and b) their rings aren't much good anyway and on the rare occasions when they use them, they actually make the situation worse.
**** Such as when Gi attempts to take care of a boat carrying open barrels of toxic waste down the river...by using her power of Water to summon a huge wave to hit the boat and wash half the barrels overboard where they start leaking.

* SecretTestOfCharacter: Greedly's grandfather, green industrialist Don Porkaloin, fakes his death and leaves a bogus fortune to his grandson to test if Greedly could be taught to be environmentally conscious. Nope.

* SecretTestOfCharacter: Greedly's grandfather, green industrialist Don Porkaloin, fakes his death and leaves a bogus fortune to his grandson to test if Greedly could be taught to be environmentally conscious. Nope. Made even worse as Greedly was practically being hand led to what the right choice was for his benefit, but he just blatantly ignored the signs.

** Sly Sludge's underling, Ooze, begged for Captain Planet's help when all the garbage they had shrunk and compacted started to grow back, threatening to bury them all alive.


Added DiffLines:

** On the other side of the coin, EvilCounterpart Captain Pollution is weakened by the very thing he exists to destroy: nature's pure elements. He can be taken down by getting buried in earth, burned by fire, blasted by wind, and splashed with water.

* EverybodyHatesAres: There's Zarm, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of war and hatred. He was actually a former spirit of the Earth who left Gaia to other world in which he destroys them. The majority of his appearance has him trying to start some war by instigating the people until they destroy themselves. And while the other Eco villains cause harm to the Earth for some profit, Zarm does it because he hates it, Gaia, and humanity.

->"''Our world is in peril. Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, can no longer stand the terrible destruction plaguing our planet.

From The Soviet Union[[note]]this was later changed to Eastern Europe[[/note]] - Linka, with the power of Wind. From Asia - Gi, with the power of Water... and from South America - Ma-Ti, with the power of Heart. When the five powers combine, they summon Earth's greatest champion, Captain Planet.''"

** Verminous Skumm harassed and lied about a boy who had HIV, and he gave nuclear detonators to people fighting in the UsefulNotes/TheTroubles, TheApartheidEra, and the UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict, in an attempt to discredit the entire human race. Both of these episodes went down in infamy, unsurprisingly.

* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: Any viewpoint innocently contrary to the show is given to Wheeler, the stupid spoiled American of the team. Even when he has a ''perfectly legitimate'' point, the show sets him up to be "proven" wrong, mainly because he has the wrong attitude or goes about things the wrong way.

** One episode features Linka's cousin, who is about her age, being injured and subsequently dying as a result of drug overdose. Another features kids about the age of the other planeteers engaging in group violence (as in, ''buying guns'' illegally) while another features FreeRangeChildren in New York possibly being used as {{scapegoat}}s for Skumm's plots, while another is flat out ''killed'' off-screen after jumping on a train because he hit the tunnel.
