Father is part of the Black DragonflightThink about it! He is a dragon that controls fire in the guise of a wealthy man who has extreme distain for anything he views as inferior or annoying (children). He also has no qualms on capturing and using children in experiments, much like Nefarian kidnaped the whelps of other flights to create the Chromatic dragonflight.
The whole "war against adult tyranny" thing is one of rebellion against a dystopiaIf you think about it, the Adults seem to have sturdier, slightly more advanced technology. They've restricted access to basic sources of information ("PG-13 and up") and have required licenses for cars, passports for travel, money for trade, ID cards for all of the above and parental permission for many things that don't fall into that category. What little access Kids have to these kinds of technology is either built from Adult trash or borrowed from Adults, and vastly inferior for the latter. Bikes can't compete with cars, pocket change won't buy you much and the closest they'd have to ID are library cards, which are only good to actually ID them and aren't valid as licenses or passports. Even if they could (they actually probably can) fake the money, ID, licenses, etc., their very appearance makes it easy to pick out a Kid trying to get invalid access to Adult technology or privileges. Sound familiar?
The WMG about "Earth is currently infected with the adulthood disease"? It's deeper than that.On Earth, the KND just fight Adults and Teenageers mostly. The GKND's enemies, however, are never shown. Perhaps an alien race that abhors children? And you would think the KND would mention the "disease" more than once unless it was vital to keep it secret. Why? Here's the theory. In space, there is a horrifying Hive Mind race that has four stomachs and hates kids. They produce a viral agent that causes aging. One that can be replicated. And concentrated to accelerate the process. The aliens can't achieve the technology for the process themselves as they have no hands (yet they have flying saucers, but then again this is the KND universe so practically anything goes). So they do it slowly, then let the adults do it faster when their increased brain power allows them the technology to do so. So what's the substance? Who are the aliens? First, take note that kids hate vegetables. And liver. And pretty much anything else that tastes funny. The viral agent has to be ingested to take effect. What is least like sugary foods yet tastes like them with the right additives that kids eat on a regular basis? What substance of that description is also recommended by doctors and dentists, and which parents make their kids consume, sweet additives or not? Any run through the KND's acronym thingy (forgot the name) would probably bring up the following result... Mutagen Initiates Little Kids Now it starts to fall into place. Chocolate milk. Milk chocolate. Bowls of sugary cereal. Ice cream. Even grilled cheese or buttered popcorn. And the aliens? You have just discovered the nature of the sinister Bovoids, ruled over by the diabolical Queen Cow. The "abductions" in farmers fields are just a cover. Soon the Bovoids will attempt to invade Earth, and only the KND will stand between them and conquest!
The whole "war against adult tyranny" thing is just an elaborate game of make-believe.The battle sequences, fights in outer space, and life-or-death situations that we the audience see are just artistic renderings of what the kids are imagining, a technique often employed in shows that make heavy use of fantasy such as Rugrats and Muppet Babies. This would explain why 2x4 Technology can do things real technology can't, such as erase memory or fly to Saturn in less than a few hours. Why haven't Abby and Cree killed each other? Because the guns, the armor, and the prisons aren't real. Teenagers aren't really decommissioned; their friends just acknowledge that they've reached an age where such make-believe games are seen as immature, and they come up with an interesting explanation for why they have to give them up... except for the "undercover operatives," who don't care what their peers or parents think and want to continue playing. The parents of kids and teens who are sent to "prisons" in the Arctic and on the moon don't wonder where they are because nobody's really in prison; they're just pretending. The same goes for how kids like #362 appear to live on the moon and how cadets appear to stay in Antarctica for training. After all, the kids seem to know there's a limit on what is possible even for them and where to draw the line, as seen in the King Sandy episodes.
Number 4: Kuki, you're not gonna marry that dork, are ya'?
Number 3: Of course not! We're just pretending.
Sandy: Pretending? The king never pretends.
Number 3: What are you, nuts? I can't get married for real! I'm, like 10-years-old!
Each villian is a manifestation of things kids don't like.This is going by the above theory that it's one big game of make-believe.
All the normally-impossible stuff happens because it's manifested into reality through the imagination of those involved, an alternate set of physics, or a combination of both.Not being "real" in the same way as other things prevents parents from wondering where their kids are or how that huge hole appeared in the wall. It protects people from being seriously injured or killed in explosions, house crushings (Op. P.I.R.A.T.E., anyone?), and the like. This also explains how operatives, who should all be real people, can meet with other operatives halfway around the world in a society which doesn't appear to use the internet or long-distance phone calls. After all, it's impossible to have a world-wide game of make-believe that easily.
Codename Kids Next Door is a criticism against adultismDuh, it is about kids rebelling against adults.
Father's real full name is Benedict Wigglestein.In "Op: ZERO," Father's first name is revealed to be Benedict. "Op: ARCHIVE," although Word of God confirms it to be non-canon, introduces an adult named "Mr. Wigglestein," who is the first adult to rebel against children (a la The Animatrix); he bears an uncanny resemblance to Father. Put them together, and you get one hell of a name. His brother, Monty Wigglestein, took his wife's surname "Uno" when he married because he wanted to distance himself from his once-evil father.
Numbah One is the ancestor of Captain Picard
KND exists in the same continuity as Children of the Corn.That's right. You read it, you can't un-read it. Maybe the CotC were inspired by the KND, or maybe they're an extremist splinter group. Maybe they're what the KND dwindles to in the future. Or maybe they're the earliest version - they're who wrote #0's book. ((Insert any number of theories here - MAYBE ALL OF THEM ARE TIME LORDS LOL!)) Any way you slice it, it's too perfect NOT to work.
Numbuh 362 was purposefully misleading Numbuh One in "Op: GIRLFRIEND."362 wasn't out of character in suspecting Numbuh 63.5 was part of the "Splinter Cell" and harassing One to pursue him. She had heard rumors that the Splinter Cell division (who was the GKND) was putting One and Lizzie in danger in an attempt to break them apart. Unsure who to trust and who could be watching, 362 attempted to drag One away from Lizzie without revealing her true motives. She assumed that the Splinter Cell couldn't target both kids. If they couldn't, then Lizzie, an innocent bystander, wouldn't get hurt.
Sector V is located in Virginia.Most sectors are named after the location that they are in. They visited the beach on many occasions. They live in a place with a diverse population. And it didn't take Numbuh 1 long to walk from the White House to the Sector V treehouse.
Mr. Boss was fired before becoming a full-time villain.In his first appearance, he tried to send his employees' daughters (and Numbah 4) to Neptune. Now, while crossing the Moral Event Horizon is perfectly normal for a Corrupt Corporate Executive, doing something like that violates about elevendy billion laws, including union rights and FAA permits. And if the government didn't crack down on him, then the board of directors would probably have fired him for trying to get rid of their own spoiled daughters. And even if that didn't happen, attracting the wrath of the KND, a multinational militant organization complete with space cannons and the G-rated version of nuclear weaponry, is generally bad for business. Also, we don't see Mr. Boss in his company after his introduction episode. Coincidence?
The Boyfriend Helmet isn't a toy.Number 5 never explicitly says it's a toy, nor what type of magazine she has that it's advertised in. And if kids read magazines they're not supposed to in our world, then they certainly can in the KND world. It's not marketed to little girls at all. It is the latest advanced gadget for the adult BDSM crowd. We know from Operation GIRLFRIEND that Lizzie has a sister old enough to get married; she could have had her sister buy it for her... or stolen one her sister had already bought! Squick! This theory is in no way serious, as it would ruin the Rule of Funny.
Father killed Hoagie Gilligan, Sr.A theory with little basis that nonetheless originated after the premiere of C.A.K.E.D.F.O.U.R., which revealed a) that Number 2's dad is dead, and b) Father apparently hated him.
Delightfulization is Intercision.It's a process that deprives a person of their individuality by turning them into a soulless zombie obedient to all authority. And it's designed chiefly for use on kids. Unfortunately, the Phlebotinum Overload Father refers to in Operation: Z.E.R.O. that destroyed the machine also gave him the key to perfecting the process without killing the subject.
Chad is an egomaniacal Well-Intentioned Extremist who either lied about being a Fake Defector or has deluded himself into believing he is one.
Number 274: I've been running this show for five years. Five years! I can't let all I've worked for, all I've accomplished be ruined by a bunch of snot-nosed brats!Chad was Supreme Leader for less than three years (as seen by the flashback to Three Years Ago in MAURICE when Number 100 was Supreme Leader), but his reputation as the Best operative went to his head and made him believe that the KND owed him for all their success even before he was Supreme Leader. Even when he turned 13, he was so convinced that he was still the only one who could successfully lead the KND, he was willing to destroy the Moonbase to protect his secret. His goal, even when he jumped off the slope with that scheme, still seemed to be to remain Supreme Leader rather than revenge ("None of you are gonna tell anyone about my birthday!"). His explanation to Number 1 about doing it to stop Cree from doing it later doesn't fly: destroying the villain's target before they can destroy it does not count as stopping them! He also was not literally behind every success Sector V has accomplished for 4 seasons; if he had been, the "Splinter Cell" would have recognized him as the Best operative. He only believed (or told himself) that he was, just as he told himself that everything he did as a Turn Coat teenager was for the greater good of the KND, a plan to help them — a delusion stemming from his conflicting need to be the Best KND operative even after starting to hate them because they tried to decommission him. Unfortunately, somewhere down the road, Chad discovered the true identity of the "Splinter Cell" as a cover for the Galactic Kids Next Door and their true goal. He wasn't trying to warn Number Infinity about a betrayal at the treaty signing in TREATY; he was demanding to know why they chose Number 1 instead of him (in his own swelled head, he's still the Best KND operative). To save their secret, Number Infinity lied when he apparently told Number 5 that Chad was still "one of us."
Number 4 was also a candidate for the Galactic Kids Next Door.In INTERVIEWS, Number 2 explains his knowledge of the GKND and their choosing Number 1 as their first operative from Earth this way:
Kids Next Door were founded by Peter Pan.They're clearly unclear on any history, including their own, so their archives cannot be trusted. But they resemble the original Lost Boys in many things. They live in trees, both on top as Peter did by the end, and inside as the Lost Boys originally did. They battle adults and anyone else who tries to tell them what to do. Anyone who breaks the cardinal rule of "no growing up" is violently ejected from the organization. And to top it off, they can make people forget their past.
The KND take place in the same universe as Ed, Edd n Eddy.Double-D (who was been shown to build technology as sophisticated as aircraft and weather satelites out of cardboard and whatever other junk he finds lying around the alley) is either related to Numbah 2, or is a former member whose mind was never erased when he turned thirteen.
Numbuh 86 has Unresolved Sexual Tension.And because she has trouble finding her Mr. Right, she acts like she hates all males as her way of letting off the steam of it. Or...
Numbuh 86 is a lesbian.Though that might not explain why she garnered a soft spot for Numbuh 19th Century.
As an anendum Numbuh 86 grows up to be Fransizka von Karma.
Numbuh 86 is really in love with her father.All little girls love their fathers, but there is this thing called an Electra complex (the gender-reversed Oedipus complex) that can go a little far sometimes. They are clearly very close, seemingly closer than her and her mother, she hates her younger brothers, who are rivals for their father?s attention (DO YOU MIND! DAD AND I ARE TRYING TO HAVE A MOMENT HERE!), and the few boys she do find cute reminds of her father: Boisterous, sloppy and aggressive (Numbuh 4) or patronizing and protective (Numbuh 19th Century).
The Kids Next Door are responsible for the adult conspiracy in the first place.Initially, there really were one or two unpleasant adults out there (Count Spankula leaps to mind as a possible "patient zero") that the Kids Next Door fought against. But then they started the practice of mindwiping any member that reached their teenage years. As the newly-brainwiped person grew up, they were left remembering only bits and pieces of those five or so years of their lives, and slowly grew bitter at the thought that they'd had a boring childhood, with the only fun part being something they can't even remember. Once they reached adulthood, they decided to take out their sucky childhood on other children. Therefore, the brain-wiping process perpetuates the evils of adults, and as the KND continues to recruit, it just keeps setting up more future adult villains.
All of the adults in the world who aren't supervillains are actually former KND operatives.
Numbah 5 grows up to be Foxxy Love, or she and Cree are two of Foxxy's illegitimate children handed off to a pair of loving parents.Same hat, same way of speaking, same tough attitude.
The first names of the Delightful Children from Down the Lane start with the letters C, F, D, T & L.UNDERCOVER reveals the boy with the football helmet on the far right of the formation to be named "Lenny" and ZERO reveals the tall shaggy-haired boy in the middle of the formation to be "David." Note that the acronym DCFDTL also has an "L" at the far right of the acronym and a "D" in the middle. This might mean that the first initials of the Delightful Children from left-to-right correspond with the letters in their acronym from left-to-right. If we eliminate the "D" in the beginning of DCFDTL for the sake of not using the same initial twice, then from left-to-right the first initials of the Delightful Children are:
The Delightful Children represent absolute conformity.
The Delightful Children deliberately sold out.
The Delightfuls are Father's real children
Father is a Firebender
Father is Mrs. Thompson's ex-husband.At the end of "'Operation: D.O.G.H.O.U.S.E."', Mrs. Thompson tells her class "that they should never accept a necklace from their angry ex-husband," obviously implying that the necklace that cursed her into the form of the Queen Weredog was a "gift" from her ex. We know that Father's got definite anger control issues, so "angry" could point in his direction. We also know he hates kids, and therefore would love to use his ex-wife's profession as a teacher as a way to plant a homework-eating werewolf in the middle of an elementary school. Finally, if he turned the KND into a zoo in "'Operation: G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.S.'", it's probably not outside his abilities to create a necklace that spreads werewolfism.
Earth is currently infected with the adulthood disease, but in a stable condition.Numbuh 74.239 states in "Operation: I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S." that adulthood is a disease, sweeping the galaxy. If that's the case, though, why do we (humans, animals, plants, etc.) all eventually grow older? Are we infected with adulthood? About eleventity buhmillion years ago, Earth was a world without adults, where kids were free to be kids forever. That changed when a Meteor of Doom made of highly concentrated adulthood struck the planet spreading the disease. Adulthood itself wasn't evil, but many of those kids who became adults abused their power, turned themselves and others into senior citizombies and would have left the world an agified wasteland, like the countless other planets that were infected and quarantined in the past. However, us Humans Are Special. A Ragtag Bunch of Misfits not all that different from the KND sectors today discovered a crashed 2x4 tech starship tangled in the branches of a massive but young tree. It was a ship from the Galactic Kids Next Door, and its pilots had been attempting to destroy the meteor of concentrated adulthood before another planet was contaminated. The dying GKND operatives with their last breath urged the earth kids to take the escape pod from the ship into deep space, where the rest of the GKND can locate and rescue them. The kids refused at the last minute, scrapped together some 2x4 tech and destroyed the minor Eldritch Abomination at the core of the astroid and the source of all adulthood. Earth's atmosphere was still infected, though, and from now on, every breath of earth's now-polluted atmosphere a kid took would gradually make him or her older. So the Ragtag Bunch of Misfits decided to use what limited time they had left as kids to defeat the other evils unleashed by the astroid. They became the first earth KND operatives in the first earth sector and heralded in the first of many ages of the Kids Next Door.
Numbuh 3 grew up and founded the Fireside Girls.Maybe when she grew up, she never had her brain washed. She remembered everything, and began the Fireside Girls to teach little girls about it. Plus, it makes sense.
Numbah 1 is actually a kid with Leukemia, and the KND is all a dream he's havingYou know how numbah 1 is really pale, and bald? He's actually in the hospital with Leukemia, and the KND is really Nigel dreaming about the childhood he'll never have. That's why the KND is capable of doing so much impossible stuff. His distrust of adults stems from the fact that, well, ever since he was little adults have been shoving needles in him and putting him through surgeries. The other operatives of sector V actually are his friends. Most of the villians are people he actually knows. Mr.'s Wink and Fibb? Two boring old guys down the street who actually do live together. The delighfuls? Those snobby kids down the street who act like little angels in front of adults and then turn into little assholes as soon as the grown ups leave. Nigel blames them for his hair because it's easier to deal with than the truth. His comment about his hair never growing back was his way of coming to terms with the fact that he's terminal. His hair is never going to grow back, because he's never getting out of chemo. He looks the way he does even in his dreams because he's been in chemo for so long he can't imagine himself looking any other way.
The Ice Cream Men are drug traffickers.The ice cream trucks are just a front. They don't serve to kids because Even Evil Has Standards. However, they know about the KND and have no problem with attacking operatives who deliberately disrupt their business. While trafficking is their specialty, they sometimes do mercenary work for supervillains if the pay is good. Op. I-SCREAM was a plan by the Delightful Children to either destroy the Kids Next Door or push the Ice Cream Men toward being mooks.
The DCFDTL were Killed Off for Real in OP INTERVIEW.Ex-Sector V mentions that the events in INTERVIEW were the last time they encountered the DCFDTL. Also, what else other than vengeance for his dead children could possibly make Father pursue Numbuh 1 for what has to have been decades?
Kuki's mom was like her as a child.Her name is Genki which could be a Meaningful Name. Kuki turned out to be just like her and look at how she was as a child.
Stickybeard is some kind of extradimensional entity.His ship moves between dimensions so the extensive property damage when it sails is just an illusion. His pirates and munitions materialize upon leaving the ship, so they cause real damage. He hoards candy because it was the first thing he liked about our universe. He took the form of a pirate due to some bizarre Theme Park Version of humans.
The Kids Next Door used to use real weapons.But then some kid shot Marvin in the face and Marvin's parents got mad and sued the KND for elevendy billion dollars. This forced the KND to make a few cutbacks, ultimately resulting in 2x4 technology.
The Five Main Characters have doubles in FireflyNumbuh 1 is Mal Numbuh 2 is Wash Numbuh 3 is Kaylee Numbuh 4 is Jayne Numbuh 5 is Zoe
Numbah 4 has a learning disability.Numbuh 4 isn't really dumb. He has a severe learning disability that, at the time he was in the kids next door, hadn't been noticed yet. The audience doesn't pick up on it because we really don't see him doing school work that much. Most of what we know comes from people's comments about how he is a terrible speller and has a poor memory. Think about it. Impulsive, short tempered, doesn't listen well, has difficulty spelling even simple words, has a misunderstanding of the english language... the signs are there. Sometime around 5th grade or early middle school, a teacher probably notices, and gets him help. It turns out he's actually sort of smart, and so with help he's able to catch up and even takes an advanced course or two in high school. When he hits college, he actually does well because he's spent the last six years or so working hard, so he's used to it and doesn't flounder in the harder environment. From college, he gets into harvard med. He only seems stupid to us right now because he's spent the past five years falling behind.
Either all of Sector V got a promotion, or this is only part one of the KND's story.In Operation I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S, Numbah Five states that she was promoted to supreme leader after the events of the story, leaving Sector V down to three members. It has been shown that Sectors can have more than five members at a time (Look to Operation G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.S. for an example), but the smallest long-term group of KND ever shown is about four. Why is this? Because if the leader leaves, the second in command takes over; if second in command leaves the team is sunk. the only exeption to this is non-sector members, who are on call at any time at moon and artic bases. It would stand to reason that these more dutiful members are higher-ranked. So, depending on your point of view either the members of Secor V became one of these higher-ranked members on request from Numbah Five, or one of these higher ranked opretives got promoted to new Sector V leader. This opens up many doors for KND speculative fanfiction.
Johan Liebert is responsible for the entire war.It turns out that his actions of murdering adults since he's a kid are recorded. With this, Johan plans to use this war to cause The End of the World as We Know It. If this keeps happening, he will succeed.
Numbuh One has a crush on Numbuh Three.No, seriously. Despite his dating Lizzie, the evidence is there. In Operation Z.E.R.O., Numbuh One says some sort of emotional bit of information about his relationship with each member of Sector V, but for Numbuh Three, he just says "Kuki..." and holds her hands. In "Operation W.H.I.T.E.H.O.U.S.E." Numbuh Five asks him "Who had a crush on Numbuh Three... and don't say Numbuh Four." He then smiles in response. There are many other moments that suggest this, but I'm not in the mood to list them. But you see what I mean, right?
Numbuh One has a crush on Numbuh 362 and she feels the same.There is evidence to suggest this as well. They share some surprisingly deep moments in conversation during "Operation: I.T." and "Operation: G.I.R.L.F.R.I.E.N.D." where she asks him to have lunch with her (after playfully threatening to make it a direct order). They certainly respect each other well enough and she seems attracted to him even after berating him for his reckless tendencies. Furthermore in operation F.U.T.U.R.E, the Boys Next Door's leader looks strangely like both of them with Nigel's blue eyes and unique head shape (Even having an eye patch that looks suspiciously like Nigel's glasses) and Rachel's blonde hair suggesting that he is possibly their grandson.
Numbuh 1 goes out with Lizzy because her bossiness fuels a secret desire of his to be controlled and dominated that he's still to young to understandNumbuh 1 spends all his time ordering his team around and telling them what to do he always has to be on top of things (plus his parents don't exactly do to much to control him) so maybe in a sort of twisted way having someone else boss him around has become a fantasy and eventually a fetish that his prepubescent mind isn't capable of understanding and so caused him to seek out the most bossy girl he could find, there's also his supposed crush on Numbuh 362 she's certainly does spend a lot of time yelling at him... besides all that what else could he possibly see in Lizzy?
Numbuh 1's mom was a paramedic or police officer when she was in the KNDHer numbuh was 999, which is the British emergency number.
Kids Next Door is the past of the Spy Kids seriesNumbuh 5 (as the supreme leader of the kids next door) eventually met up with Devlin, the head of OSS and then the KND became part of the kids division of OSS
One of the Meddling Executives has friends in the American Dental Association.This show does a good job of making sugar unappealing. Do you want candy after seeing Stickybeard? I sure don't. I posit that Mr. Warburton was asked to make the show tooth friendly by portraying candy as gross looking and sugary cereal companies as morally gray. Knight Brace was conceived as a Take That to this request, even though the actual dentist is portrayed positively.
The GKNDhas a hand in creating and/or funding some villains We know that they test KND members to find who is deserving of joining them. Villains are frequently arrested, sent to the KND prison, but somehow escape and manage to start causing trouble once again. Also, there's the question of how some of them manage to get such high tech technology. Theory? Some villains are intentionally created, freed from prison, or funded by the GKND to test the Earth branch so they can select opperatives. Not all of them, but some that aren't major threats.
The KND is a socialist originationremember being the leader means having a "willingness to share you candy with every one" and they also seem the ration things like ice cream
The KND is funded by good adultsLet's face it, a lot of the stuff the supervillains do would outright sicken any normal minded person (case in point, Knight Brace), and someone questioned were the KND got their funding. Well look at it this way, most normal adults are not skilled or smart enough to take down the supervillains, particularally high powered ones like Father, so they fund the KND, who are very good at it. Yes, it puts kids in danger to some extant, but it stops the extremely abusive adults from doing harm to them, as the kids can defend themselves on the spot. Just an idea.
The DCFDTL gave Numbuh 1 cancer.Numbuh 5 mentions that the last time the Delighful Children took a kid, they did something she can't forgive, which Nigel say was making him bald. The DCFDTL have shown a strong desire to kill Numbuh 1, even against Father's orders. It's possible they gave him cancer to dispose of him without it being traced to them. After Numbuh 5 rescued him, he got treatment which left him bald.
Numbah 5 has a crush on number 1.Numbuh 5 is extremely concerned with his welbeing. there's over evidence of this if i remember right, but i'll have to go watching some episodes again to find them. Full Metal Panic! Tessa designed and made the ECS stealth system at the tender age of 9.
Numbuh Five has a crush on Numbuh Two.I'm surprised this wasn't up here before, but maybe it's because in the end they're an Official Couple. While Numbuh Five may tease him for being a nerd, and may react harshly to him cracking a joke, it's hinted at that she's jealous of any other girl he flirts with. In Operation UNCOOL, she seems to very irritated with how gung-ho Numbuh Two is to save Numbuh Seventy-Eight, but then is outraged to find out he really wanted to save a Yipper card. In Operation: COUCH, when he comments that Numbuh Ten is, "easy on the eyes," she quickly elbows him and glares at him. Also Word of God says she might secretly like his jokes and puns, but is in denial. This would explain why she always gets angry at him when he jokes, compared to the characters who just groan and move on with their lives. It'd also explain why she apparently uses jokes similar to his when he's not around.
KND is in the same universe as Red DwarfThey changed their name to the space scouts in the early 22nd century. Rimmer's and his 3 older brothers were their own sector, and much of their evil was part of an elaborate, long-term (and unauthorized) hazing. This also explains his obsession with becoming an officer: As a child, his brothers held him back from becoming anything important within the KND, and he never really got over it.
Numbuh T is a numberThis is probably one of the most far-fetched WMGs, but....T is technically a number.It's a variable. In physics and algebra, "t" usually denotes time. The numeric value of variables always change so Tommy's number could mean that with time, he has potential to become something great. No?? Yes???
The KND is funded by the United Nations.Related to the "funded by good adults" theory above. In addition to fighting supervillians, the KND act as a kind of worldwide militia, keeping their local communities safe and defending their citizens. It also helps explain why they have what amounts to military-grade weaponry and space forces: the UN gave them the money, resources, and permission.
Numbuh One's balding from the Delightful Children and Numbuh Five's Greatest Failure are separate incidents.It's possible to make the connection of when the DC made Numbuh One bald is the mysterious incident that Numbuh Five grimly refers to as "you-know-what" when offered temporary leadership of Sector V again in "Op: FERAL." However, based on what we know from the show, this is unlikely: Three years ago from "Op: MAURICE," Five was the newest member of Sector V. "Op: TREATY" reveals that some time after that One was bald before joining the KND, and thus had his encounter with the DC before he was an operative. This means that in order for both incidents to be the same, Numbuh Five must've been Sector V's leader when the DC made him bald, which seems unlikely if Cree (who seemed to be the leader at the time of the "MAURICE" flashbacks) was still a KND operative and Five was the junior operative. It's more likely that they were two separate incidents. The first when Five was a junior operative and the DC gave One a hell of a Traumatic Haircut, and the second when Five was the leader of Sector V and was so unpleasant that it made her renounce leadership. Thus by the age of 11, Numbuh Five has experienced two traumatic Noodle Incidents in addition to the betrayal of her sister and her candy-hunting partner.
Bruce and Ashley are twins.I don't know if this has been confirmed or not but they look like twins to me.
The KND, and everything related to it, was created through the power of imagination of childrenOne day, before the first age of the KND, a group of kids was looking to have fun. So they imagined that they had bad guys to play with, plus incredibly sophisticated equipment and facilities. And through the power of imagination, these things became a reality. Unfortunately, the kids eventually lost control of their game, and now the villains want to hurt them rather than play.
Numbuh 5 has a crush on Numbuh 4 and she is in denial about itThink about it:Abby keeps teasing and playfully insulting Wally,which is tipical for young kids to do with their crushes;the fact that she teases him about his crush for Numbuh 3 could be a way to forget about it/I Want My Beloved to Be Happy kind of thing.And in both Operation SNOWING and Operation AFLOAT she is the most desperate when Numbuh 4 is captured/eaten (in the latter,she even shouts "NOOOOO!Not Numbuh 4!".
A little info about the TeenagersAs we've seen in POINT, most teenagers don't care about the KND vs. Adults conflict. Yet every teenager after that is hostile. Why? I don't recall hating kids when I was a teen! In fact, I loved them! I've got an idea: Maybe the Teen Ninjas we see are a PMC group. Since in the real world, adults will pay teenagers looking for work, the Teen Ninjas are simply hired goons for Father's Army. They're not cheap, but they have great skill. At the same time, the ones we've been following are merely loyalists. There also exists a faction of separatists who turn against Father for their own varied reasons, specializing in units like Drill Teams or stuff like that.
Kuki can't speak Japanese very wellLet's ignore that in Operation TRIP, everyone in Japan speaks perfect English. I like to think that Kuki is dissociated from Japan that either she can't speak Japanese, or she can't speak it very well. Her Japanese is broken, and she doesn't know any of the cultural standards. What makes me think this? First of all it's funny. Second, a big clue is in her name: Kuki. Mr. Warburton responded when asked that it's supposed to mean "air", which is incorrect because "Kuki" in Japanese means "flower stem". But, the word "Kuuki", which is close, actually means "air". It's possible she's been misspelling/mispronouncing her name all this time.
Numbah Four grew up to be Robert Chase.We know he grew up to be an intelligent, Australian doctor. Why not that intelligent, Australian doctor?
The Uno family are descendants of AkuIt's not hard to see the resemblance between Aku and Grandfather. They also have similar powers.
Numbuh 362 didn't really fall for Mandy's disguise.She knew it wasn't Nigel, but decided to go along with it until the right time. However, when she did, Mandy convinced everyone she had the same "virus" and had Rachel locked away.
The show spans over a year and a halfIn Operation: C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E., Numbuh 1 mentions that the Delightful Children's birthday happens five times a year. There's been 7 cake episodes: C.A.K.E.D., C.A.K.E.D.-T.W.O., C.A.K.E.D.-T.H.R.E.E., C.A.K.E.D.-F.O.U.R., C.A.K.E.D.-F.I.V.E., S.I.X., and I.N.T.E.R.V.I.E.W.S.. Plus, at least one comic example◊.
There was no Galactic KNDIt was all done to mislead Father. In truth the cake WAS that big and not a spaceship. However, it was possible that Numbuh 1 had reached 13 and had to be decommissioned, or something happened that made him choose to "retire". But since he was the best operative of the KND, he was allowed to "end it with a bang" and able to eat a big cake held together by rockets. The Delightfuls did die so father was out for vengeance. If they had told him the truth, Nigel's family would have all been in bigggg trouble. As for Numbuh Five saying "welcome back" at the end.....most likely he was recomissioned too, but why? Because he's dying(they were pretty old at that time) and someone wanted him to know of what he lost before he dies?
That Alternate Universe ... before the DNK reformed, I could imagine the "villains" as this ... Father and the Delightful Children were already shown
Nigel's parents come from Britain and Nigel moved to the United States when he was three, right? Well ... the thing that confuses me a bit is that Grandfather's Reign of Terror apparently took place in the United States ...
Assuming that Operation A.R.C.H.I.V.E.S. isn't canon, Numbuh Zero's rebellion against Grandfather must have happened before July of 1969. Also, Numbuh Zero's around 50 years old.
Numbuh Two's mom used to be a member of the Kids Next Door, and something happened to her similar to what happened to Tommy in Operation G.R.A.D.U.A.T.E.S.
The KND world is a sealed of pocked dimension whose guardians are the adults.Every child, upon hitting their teen years, is then revealed the truth about how Real Life operates and is given the choice to leave or to stay and uphold The Masquerade. (If they try to break it, it's immediate expulsion.) No wonder the teens are so bitter—if they leave, they're completely unprepared for life in the real world, but if they stay, they can't participate in any of the fun and they get to look forward to disillusioning their younger friends and siblings.
Numbuh One was molested.In "Operation: B.U.T.T.," he loses his swimming trunks and ends up in a middle-aged man's basket to hide. His eyes widen when the man reaches into the basket and he squeals as he jumps out. Though it was unintentional, the man touched his privates.
