* AcceptableTargets: The show really likes to stereotype British people and make fun of UsefulNotes/{{Europe}}. The episode "Twistory" was even banned from the airwaves for its depiction of negative British stereotypes.
* AccidentalAesop: "The Odd Couple" gives us the dangers of going on dating sites. Not everyone is just like their online profiles.
* {{Anvilicious}}: The aesops have a tendency to be this. Parodied in one episode, "The Masked Magician", where Timmy says "I learned that sometimes "I'm sorry" can be the only magic words you need", followed by a cut to a flashing screen with the words "'''MORAL OF THE STORY'''".
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Vicky: a complete psychopath who tortures kids ForTheEvulz or it is possible that she has a FreudianExcuse for her actions and had DarkAndTroubledPast which made her the way she is now. The episode "Snow Bound" suggests that she had a rough childhood [[note]]Possibly retconned as of ChannelChasers which, judging by her baby pictures, she's always been evil[[/note]].
** Trixie Tang: In "The Boy Who Would Be Queen" we find out that Trixie secretly loves boy-oriented things and her AlphaBitch behavior is an attempt to hide this. Does she have genuine feelings for Timmy but acts like a jerk and represses her love for him because she wants to remain popular? Also, it is possible that she is really a LonelyRichKid and a StepfordSmiler?
** Timmy's Jerkass behavior in season 5 may have been caused by the episode "It's Wishful Life" where he finds out that the world was better without him and everyone didn't care about him. He must have felt hurt and humiliated, so he began acting like a Jerkass towards his godparents and friends out of anger from knowing that they don't care about him at all and wants revenge against them.
** [[http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/679/806/a3c.png This image]] provides a very worrying interpretation of Timmy, that he essentially ran away from his original life and family to start a second one with his Fairy Godparents and that he risks becoming more and more detached and antisocial.
** Cosmo: Read the FridgeHorror entry about possibility that he maybe [[ObfuscatingStupidity pretending to be stupid]] and that all the disasters he made WERE NOT AN ACCIDENT.
** Wanda: A {{deadpan snarker}} who is the [[OnlySaneMan only sane fairy]], or a [[ComedicSociopathy psychopath]] who punishes Cosmo and Timmy [[DisproportionateRetribution for making one slight mistake]]. "Bad Heir Day" gives an example for the latter.
** Some fanfics give us the idea that Anti-Cosmo wanted Timmy as his anti-godchild because he actually cared about him and thought that Cosmo and Wanda weren't doing a well enough job caring for him. [[JerkassHasAPoint He's kind of right.]]
* ArchivePanic: So far, we've got 132 episodes (and counting), twelve movies, and eight video games. There's no end in sight, either.
* {{Asspull}}: Lots of it. The show usually gets away with this through RuleOfFunny.
* BaseBreaker: Cosmo (after his voice change), Trixie, Baby Poof, Sparky.
* BrokenBase:
** The live action movies and Wishology.
** [[spoiler: Timmy becoming a fairy at the end of the third live-action movie, ''Film/AFairlyOddSummer'']]
** At the time of Season 9 (and after three Live-Action movies), what can be considered as canon in this series, or even if this series still has some type of continuity or not.
* CargoShip: Referenced in ''Spaced Out!''
%% Do not add any Complete Monster entries without taking it to the cleanup thread.
* CreatorsPet:
** Based on interviews with Butch Hartman, it seems Sparky is headed this way.
** Crocker appears in almost every episode since Season 7 onward.
* CriticalResearchFailure:
** One episode treats the giant squid as a mythological creature. [[CaptainObvious It's a real species.]]
** "Fairy Idol" shows penguins living at the North Pole. Not just a few, but a whole rookery (though a lot of American cartoons show penguins as North Pole animals rather than South Pole/Antarctic animals, so it's not that much of a surprise).
** "Land Before Timmy" has Timmy wishing for a world without technology. This brings the dinosaurs back to life, meaning that the writers think dinosaurs went extinct because of technology.
** [[DefconFive Defcon 5]] is not the height of American nuclear readiness; this mistake has been made more than a few times.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy / DudeNotFunny:
** The majority of the KafkaKomedy Timmy goes through.
** Timmy's parents will occassionally fall into this trope in their worst moments of neglect toward Timmy and when these actions supposedly are PlayedForLaughs.
** And need we forget the cruel WonderfulLife subversion in "It's a Wishful Life".
** Wanda throwing Timmy to hungry alligators, even though Timmy went through a lot of trouble trying to save Poof, in "Bad Heir Day" was considered a MoralEventHorizon moment by some fans, despite this action being a gag in the episode.
** Many Cosmo's "marriage jokes" about Wanda.
** "Crock Blocked," the worst episode title ever of the series and for cartoons in general.
** One episode has Timmy asked Cosmo and Wanda for a sub for dinner because his parents forgot to feed him (again). Cosmo, being the idiot he is nowadays, thinks Timmy means a literal submarine and poofs into one. Wanda yells at him for a bit and he changes back, and when Timmy asks for dinner again, Wanda mishears him and they both just go to bed. Apparently, Timmy going hungry is supposed to be funny, but it really isn't.
* DesignatedHero:
** Timmy Turner, for several reasons.
** Sparky in his debut episode. He nearly gets Timmy killed twice ''(once by taking his parachute, and the other by having Timmy rescue him from a burst dam)'', knowing fully well that in both instances, ''fairy dogs can't die''. He even says so after Timmy "saves" him in the second instance.
* DesignatedVillain:
** Oddly enough, ''Timmy'' is this in "The Masked Magician". Bickles came ''dangerously'' close to destroying Dimmsdale [[DisproportionateRetribution simply because Timmy (unknowingly!) showed up his own magic show]], and yet its ''Timmy'' that's presented as being in the wrong and the one who has to apologize in the end!
* DieForOurShip:
** Many fans of love interests such as Tootie, Trixie, and slash fans, tend to relentlessly bash each other's couples.
** Missy (Timmy's new love interest in Season 9) has already gotten this. The fact that neither Tootie or Trixie have appeared in this season doesn't help.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Juandissimo isn't necessarily evil, but he's too sexy for his own sexiness.
* DeconstructionFic: Cosmo and Wanda's failing relationship, Norm The Genie often deconstructed. Notable that since the later seasons' reversal of the flanderization, the former has been fading out.
* EarWorm:
** ''"Timmy is an average kid, who no one understands..."''
** "Shiny Teeth" is far catchier than a song about teeth has any right to be.
** "Find Your Voice" is catchy in its own right.
** "V! I! C-K-Y! The sound of her name makes the little kids cry!" Let's face it, any time Chip sings, it qualifies for this.
** "Adults ruin everything! But kids would run things right!"
** "We're pixies! We're pixies! Check out our mad wicked mixies!"
** ''Get Timmy Turner!''
** "These are the unfundamentals, for us fairy godparentals, who are now devoid of wishing out of mirth!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Norm, Miss Doombringer, Molly.
** There's also Dark Laser (who's seen as one of the few bright spots in the show post-SeasonalRot) and Anti-Cosmo for being an awesomely GenreSavvy villain.
* EvilIsCool: The Jack O' Bots, who combine to form the equally cool Pumpkinator.
* EvilIsSexy:
** Princess Mandie, whom Mark does not want to marry despite her evilness.
** [[TeensAreMonsters Vicky]] is this to a lot of fans surprisingly, especially when she takes over Timmy's life,
** Miss Doombringer.
** Mr. Crocker has a surprising female fanbase from someone so unattractive and crazy. [[HoYay Even Mr. Turner thinks he's gorgeous!]]
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop:
** The WonderfulLife Subversion "It's A Wishful Life": Timmy Turner, a proxy for the kids in the audience, is told everyone is better off without him. And if that isn't enough, Jorgen tells Timmy the reason he's a victim of bullying and abuse is because he exists. In other words, blaming the victim. Made even worse by the fact that the things Jorgen shows him make no sense: Mr. and Mrs. Turner have a mansion and a daughter who's won several academy awards, Francis is not a gray-skinned bully, AJ has a full head of hair and graduated from high school when he was 5, Crocker is a purple-haired Harvard professor, Chester has a triple-wide trailer on gold blocks and Cosmo and Wanda for fairy godparents (and ''they're'' happy they have an unselfish child who doesn't wear a pink hat), Vicky works in the hospital spraying laughing gas, Elmer doesn't have a boil on his nose, and the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. The worst part? Remember the theme song: "Timmy is an average kid," So, the world is better off without average kids? The other worst part? Jorgen is essentially goading [[DrivenToSuicide Timmy into committing suicide]], all in the name of a particularly cruel test of character.
** It also claims that you shouldn't do things to get appreciated, but because they're the right thing to do. Parents all over the world would ''not'' be pleased to hear this, and for good reason - being appreciated means that people are grateful for the time and effort you put into doing nice things for them. Doubly so when Timmy himself did nice things for people for both the appreciation, and a simple "Thank You"!
** ''Mooooving Day'''s moral appears to be "Don't drink milk, it will brainwash you." [[SpoofAesop This one might be intentional, though.]]
** "Vicky Gets Fired" gives us "If someone is bullying you, up to and including torture and attempted murder, shut up and don't tell anyone, especially not authority figures." (TruthInTelevision, scarily enough.)
* FanonDiscontinuity: There's a lot of fans who like to believe everything from after either Abra-Catastrophe or Channel Chasers never existed and that the series ended after one or the other. To a much lesser degree there are those who ignore everything after season 1 or 2.
* FetishFuelStationAttendant: Trixie, Norm, and Mandie.
* FoeYay: Vicky, and Timmy as Gah
* GeniusBonus: Catman. His costume is a ShoutOut to an old, throwaway ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' villain of the same name from ''DetectiveComics''.
* GrowingTheBeard:
** Most fans agree than ''WesternAnimation/ChannelChasers'' was the high point of the series.
** The second season where the series grew into it's own. This, along with the third season, is often considered the high point of the series among fans.
** For half the fandom, it becomes good again after Poof's birth.
* HarsherInHindsight: In the end of "The Big Problem," Timmy (after becoming a 10 year old again) is released from jail because according to the guard, it's "for creepy adults, not kids." In the past few years, quite a few kids Timmy's age and even younger have been sentenced to adult prison.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** In one episode, the President had a button that blew up Pluto. Cosmo pushes it.... and nobody cares.
** There's another instance of this in another episode, one of the things on Timmy's to do list is checking out the moons of Pluto.
** And in one episode, they said Pluto is a planet; guess what happened in 2006?
** The Dinkleberg meme, you know, the one where Dinkleberg is blamed for everything? Well, try to watch the episode [[spoiler: where Dinkleberg pretends to actually be evil]] and try not to laugh harder....
** One of the (minor) wishes Timmy's made has been for a unicorn, which is a lot funnier when you remember one of the later [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic roles]] his [[TaraStrong voice actress]] wound up taking.
** In "When Losers Attack", Foop, Crocker, and Dark Laser team up and call their group the League Of Super Evil Revenge Seekers (LOSERS). Those who are familiar with their forgotten Creator/CartoonNetwork shows will recall a show they ran called ''LeagueOfSuperEvil''.
** In the episode where Timmy visits Atlantis, the mermen eat crabs, sea-stars, and the occasional underwater squirrel. Guess who experienced SeasonalRot before the other.
** This line from "Tiny Timmy": [[WesternAnimation/InsideOut "Emotions are controlled by little people in chairs."]]
** [[WesternAnimation/PerfectHairForever Cat Man, anyone? Also, both the April Fool and the Inappropriate Comedy Tree like to say "What's up with that?"]]
** For certain VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys fans, Sparky's name and species can be seen as this.
* HoYay: Now has [[HoYay/FairlyOddParents its own page]].
* JerkassWoobie: Timmy. Remy Buxaplenty is also a jerk and a {{woobie}} to some, however he lacks the hidden nice side necessary to be a JerkassWoobie.
* LesYay: Veronica is obsessed with Trixie. Still, oddly enough, this is actually considered a ''subversion'' by the fandom. General opinion holds that Veronica's obsession with Trixie is, in turn, due to ''Timmy'' being obsessed with Trixie, at the very least an extremely unhealthy case of possessiveness if not outright jealousy. And Veronica likes Timmy with the "burning passion of a thousand suns", as it stands.
* MagnificentBastard: Anti-Cosmo's Plan in the Jimmy Timmy Power Hour 2 When Nerds Collide has shades of this.
* MemeticBadass: Some think of UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington in "Twistory" to be this.
* MemeticMutation: [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/dinkleberg Dinkleberg...]]
** "And here's where I'd put X... IF I HAD ONE!"
** '''[[VerbalTic FAIRY GODPARENTS!!!]]'''
** "We're going to read ''The Little Dolphin Who Cried [insert sound here]''."
** "''My shiny teeth and meee...''"
** [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington MUST!]] [[AxCrazy CHOP!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis WOOOOOD!]]
** Elmer's boil's favorite pie flavor: "Blueberry! Boisonberry! Take-over-the-world-berry!"
** "I can see! [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I...can...FIGHT!"]]
** Doug Dimmadome, owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome!
** "I'm both respecting your privacy by knocking but asserting my authority as your father by coming in anyway." ''[crashes through Timmy's bedroom door with a battering ram]''
** Merging the theme song with "[[Music/{{Lorde}} Royals]]": "'Cause every song is like obtuse, rubber goose, green moose, guava juice, giant snake, birthday cake, large fries, chocolate shake"
* MemeticSexGod: Juadissimo, the Mexican Fairy Sex God.
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Crocker crosses this in ''AbraCatastrophe'', when he kidnaps and tortures Wanda to use as a source of power.
** Vicky crosses it in the TV film, "Channel Chasers", when she frames Timmy for destroying his family's portrait, burning down his family's grand piano, and writing spray paint on the living room wall just to see Timmy suffering a horrible punishment from his parents.
** The Pixies crossed this in "School's Out: The Musical" when they kidnap a child and raise him for his entire life as their own personal {{Tykebomb}} to try and take over Fairy World and the Earth.
** The Anti-Fairies crossed this (and if "School's Out" wasn't their's, this certainly is for the Pixies) by using Poof as a weapon to destroy Fairy World for revenge, then choosing to destroy the Earth ForTheEvulz.
** The whole gambit Norm pulled in "Fairy Idol". He was already a JerkassGenie, but the way he ruins Timmy's and Chester's lives is just terrible.
** Remy Buxaplenty was originally a VillainyFreeVillain who was merely jealous of Timmy's Fairies and happiness, and while he might do an underhanded tactic here and there, like when he tricked Timmy by faking friendship so his life would be too perfect and his fairies would leave him, he never resorted to violence. He becomes a full-on CardCarryingVillain as of "Operation F.U.N." where he, Juandisimo and Chief Shallow Grave put Timmy and his friends through TrainingFromHell, running them absolutely ragged and cutting Timmy off from his fairies by having them confiscated in goldfish form. The MOH crossing really comes in when he traps them under a butterfly net, which renders them powerless with a missile ready to obliterate them. He was willing to KILL Cosmo and Wanda!
* MostAnnoyingSound: Cosmo's voice has become very high-pitched over the course of the seasons. So when he whines or screams, it can get really irritating.
* MostWonderfulSound: Chip Skylark singing. Helps that he's voiced by guy who's from an actual boy band.
* NeverLiveItDown:
** ''Just the Two of Us!'' for Trixie, ''Homewrecker'' for Tootie (over a single spoken line no less), and quite possibly the producers of the show for the episode, It's a Wishful Life, a very sadistic {{Wonderful Life}} subversion, as well as the character of Jorgen Von Strangle for very cruelly and sadistically showing Timmy the subversion.
** Francis is not above [[WouldHitAGirl hitting girls]], but he only ever laid hands on Tootie once - at the end of ''Kung Timmy''- and at least she was openly confronting him at the time. Yet because of that scene, a lot of FanFiction writers assume that Tootie is Francis' second favorite victim after Timmy.
* NightmareFuel: [[NightmareFuel/TheFairlyOddparents See here]].
* OneSceneWonder: Stephen Hawking.
* ParanoiaFuel: To an extent. Plenty of teenagers have freaked out over the thought of ''what if'', just '''what if''' they had fairy godparents of their own at some point and have now forgotten all about them, like Da Rules say in the show?
* ReplacementScrappy:
** For some fans Missy, from the episode "Finding Emo" of Season 9, as a new LoveInterest to Timmy. She has traits of the more recurrent {{Love Interest}}s of Timmy: Tootie and Trixie Tang. The fact that neither of them have appeared in this season doesn't help.
** Anti-Cosmo (and the Anti-Fairies as a whole) have been more or less replaced by Foof, an evil version of Poof who was already a Scrappy to some. Needless to say fans were ''pissed''.
* RootingForTheEmpire: Sometimes.
* TheScrappy:
** Timmy's parents for some fans after being Flanderized into abusive, neglectful parents.
** Cosmo, [[{{Flanderization}} due to the same reasons]], has become more annoying than funny.
** Wanda for being a constant nag that gets on Timmy and Cosmo's case over the slightest mistake.
** Vicky in the later seasons, [[{{Flanderization}} for being much more cruel than she was in earlier seasons]] ([[DudeNotFunny chainsaws and maces?! Seriously?!]]).
** For some fans, even Timmy himself, [[TookAlevelInJerkass especially due to his behavior]] in seasons four and five.
** Even before his introduction, fans already thought of Timmy's new dog, Sparky, as this. As a matter of fact, [[http://youtu.be/AQFnirOICi8 comparisons to Poochie from the Simpsons have already been made.]]
** Poof's introduction is often seen as a low point to the show.
** Mr. Crocker has become more and more in a borderline example, mainly due to his overexposure in later seasons, especially in Season 9.
* SeasonalRot: General consensus is either after the first or second movie or when Poof was born. To a lesser degree some feel the rot started as far back as Season 2 or 3 when Vicky [[{{Flanderization}} made the switch from a bully of a babysitter to basically Satan in human form.]]
* ShipMates:
** Trixie/Remy and Veronica/Chester for Timmy/Tootie fans.
** Chester/Tootie and Remy/Veronica for Timmy/Trixie fans.
* StrawmanHasAPoint:
** "It's a Wishful Life", where Timmy receives no appreciation for his good deeds. While the kid can be a jerk, he had every right to be upset with no one appreciating his work. Bickles was ungrateful simply because Timmy used a different shade of blue for a painted background that others wouldn't have noticed or cared about; AJ was ungrateful simply because Timmy bought a computer that was obsolete as of 5 seconds ago, then used the expensive computer as a door stopper; and Timmy's parents were ungrateful simply because Timmy knew nothing about the "dirty yard contest" they were competing against the Dinkleburgs for and spent untold hours (as far as they knew) making the garden beautiful to show his love for them.
** "Fairly Odd Pet" has two. Timmy is upset about not having a pet, even though the episode, as well as a previous one, show's that he's terrible with pets, many of them either dying due to his stupidity or essentially cannibalism. Then there is Sparky, whose getting returned to the pet store by Timmy is depicted as sad, even though Timmy was in the right, given all of the chaos caused by Sparky (as well as photos of Sparky's past showing the possibility he may have gotten one of them killed).
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Norm's "Gimme The Wand" sounds very similar to "Friend like Me" from Aladdin, which was sung by the the Genie.
* TakeThatScrappy: A bit of an odd example as it's not directed towards a character from the show itself, but "Abracatastrophe" has Timmy throwing a character, obviously based on Jar-Jar Binks, off a bridge.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Catman is no longer voiced by Adam West... which pretty much kills the joke stone dead.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** Some felt ''The Big Superhero Wish'' and ''Wishology'' should have had more action, and that Tootie should have been involved in the latter; also, Trixie fans believe her tomboy nature should have been explored more.
** A lot of fans cried foul after viewing ''Escape From [=UnWish=] Island'', feeling it was horrible use of a potential villain (in this case, Gary, Timmy's former imaginary friend) who wasn't even wished away in the first place and especially the Ass Pull ending the writers came up with.
** [[CrossOver Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour 3]], which was originally was supposed to be a GrandFinale for [[TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron both]] [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents shows.]]. Who didn't want to see a 3D Dimmsdale and a 2D Retroville, Crocker spazzing out in 3D, or the alien Mark Chang in 3D?
** Some fans felt disappointed that Veronica's secret crush on Timmy was not developed further beyond of "Information Stupor Highway" (and briefly in "Mind Over Magic") and this sub-plot has not been referenced or supported since Season 3.
* ToyShip: Several involving Timmy.
* UglyCute:
** Tootie, but her live-action version averts this.
** Mr. Crocker falls under this as well. It's even parodied in-universe in that Timmy's Dad thinks the hunchbacked, scrawny, ear-on-his-neck-for-some-reason teacher is gorgeous.
* UnfortunateImplications: WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter basically took apart the valentine episode ''Love Struck'' for being just one long run of asinine stereotypes about men, women and romance in general. ''[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6dl NH Rxrc M Link ]]
]]''
** As he also points out, the episode's plot assumes that the entire human race is heterosexual.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: Norm the Genie
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: We're supposed to feel bad for Sparky for being repeatedly being abandoned by past owners.. But given that a lot of his behavior in his debut episode and several episodes after involve him being stupid, destructive, obnoxious and generally causing trouble for everyone around him... it really is small wonder that nobody would want him around.
* UnpopularPopularCharacter:
** Timmy Turner, particularly in early seasons.
** Tootie also counts.
** Crocker too, although he has become more a BaseBreaker (and even a borderline [[TheScrappy scrappy]]) case due to his overexposure in later seasons, especially in Season 9.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Poof is a boy. Yes, he wears purple and has purple eyes. RealMenWearPink, after all. And he has a water gun.
* {{Wangst}}: "Not on the List" from ''Merry Wishmas''.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: A common complaint about the newer seasons is their over-reliance on using current technology for laughs, like smartphones (i.e. "App Trap" in Season 9).
** Another example is the Season 9 episode "Viral Vidiots", which parodies [=YouTube=] in ''2013'', similarly to the 2010 ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' episode "Johnny Tube".
* WinBackTheCrowd: Season 6 and onwards, despite introducing BaseBreaker Poof, undid some of the Flanderization. For instance, Timmy's parents [[TookALevelInKindness aren't huge jerkasses anymore]] (good examples being the end of "Sooper Poof" and "Meet the [=OddParents=]").
* TheWoobie: Tootie.
* {{Woolseyism}}: In the Brazilian dub, in the episode where Cosmo (who is voiced by Guilherme Briggs, the Brazilian NorioWakamoto) gives birth to Poof (ItMakesSenseInContext), he grabs Timmy by the collar and yells: "PEDE PRA SAIR! PEDE PRA SAIR!" ("ASK TO GET OUT! ASK TO GET OUT!"). This is a reference to the MemeticMutation of the movie TheEliteSquad (which, by the way, it's not kid-friendly, but this didn't impede the line to become a meme) and arguably a CMOA for Brazilian voice acting (the original line of the movie is more properly translated as "Ask to quit!" but in Portuguese the word "sair" can mean both cases).
