Sh'Okanabo has decided to do a test run of his Gene Seeds ability to transform their hosts into Kanabo. Things take a turn for the worse when Mikey is accidentally infected.

This episode provides examples of

  • All for Nothing: Discussed. Sh'Okanabo is most displeased to learn about what effect the Sun has on the Kanabo. Also subverted in that he begins thinking of a way to counteract the sun.
    Sh'Okanabo: All my plans and preparation, only to be defeated by mere sunlight?!
  • Big Eater: Anyone infected by the Kanabo virus
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Anyone infected by the Kanabo virus
  • Cue the Sun: Instrumental in the plot
  • Didn't See That Coming: The unique properties and combination of Earth's Sun and atmosphere would make the planet uninhabitable for the Kanabo—something Sh'Okanabo has never thought possible.
  • Easily Thwarted Alien Invasion: Sh'Okanabo's invasion of Earth, thanks to it's Sun
  • Foreshadowing: "This place could sustain us for centuries, if not for its accursed sun...but perhaps that obstacle can be eliminated."

  • The Virus: Sh'Okanabo and his Gene Eggs.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Sh'Okanabo's drones and their weakness to...sunlight.
    • Although it seems there's something about the combination of Earth's atmosphere and the planet's sunshine that does it as it didn't happen on other worlds.
  • You Just Had to Say It: When Cody asks where (the infected) Leo is, he bursts through the wall, prompting Raph to say
    Raph: You just had to ask, didn't you?
