* BookEnds: At the start of the movie, Numbah 1 talks about how some kids tell a story about when the world was ruled by an evil adult -- a story about a boy, a book and a tree -- and states that if he finds the Book of KND some day, he'll write in it just five words: "[[IAmTheNoun I.]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis am.]] [[TitleDrop Kids. Next. Door.]]" At the end, he states some kids tell a story about when the world was ''almost'' ruled ''again'' by an evil adult -- a boy about a boy, a book, [[spoiler:his dad]] and a tree -- and states that he did indeed write just five words in it: "''[[TrueCompanions We. Are.]]'' Kids. Next. Door."

** Numbuh 1 is this to Numbuh 0, as he clearly states to Numbuh 362 in an inspirational speech about how important Numbuh 0 is not only to the KND's history but to himself as well. He also [[Squee squees]] at the realization that Numbuh 0 is [[spoiler:his dad]], and [[spoiler:tears up at not seeing his hero again after Numbuh 0 gets himself decommissioned and destroys the recommissioning module, delivering his message why he chose to do so.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Grandfather. And HOW. He practically destroys the KND and succeeds in retaking control of the world like before but worse. Yet instead of kicking up his heels like most would do and relaxing with some tapioca he then focuses his attention on destroying a last HopeSpot, the book of KND which led to his defeat the last time. Even when one of his own sons show some resistance to their family's evil ways he decides to zombify him instead of just leaving him be.
** And it was by restoring Grandfather's memory that Father showed another moment of GenreSavvy. To steal the memory-restoring device from the museum, he sent two groups of villains: one to the museum and one to assault the moonbase as a distraction. Almost all KND operatives believed the museum raid to be the distraction. Later, when Father assembled the other villains so they'd see him using the device on Grandfather, he not only expected Numbuh One to show up but also ''wanted'' it to happen. It turns out the device couldn't be activated without boogers from an active KND operative and, since Father's and the Delightful Children's involutary inductions were already over, he needed to take it from somebody.

** Also, one of the villains at the convention center looks like a human version of the titular character of ''WesternAnimation/SheepInTheBigCity'', which Curious Pictures also did for Cartoon Network (that show's creator, Mo Willems, also worked on ''KND'' and Sheep made a few cameos- once as one of Numbah 3's stuffed animals in "Operation: T.H.E.-F.L.Y.", and Bruce, the leader of the DCFDTL looked a lot like Sheep when affected by the animal energy field in "Operation: G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.S.").

* FreudianExcuse: Father's got a damn good one. It seems that being raised by a horrendous asshole who turns people into zombies doesn't exactly inspire you to be a good person, hence his transformation into TheDragon of the adults.
