Kim and Ron were "Friends with Benefits" throughout the entire show.Kim and Ron were having casual sex frequently throughout all four seasons. They had a very mature sexual relationship without emotional clinginess which eventually blossomed in to a full romance at the end of Season 3. It being a Disney show, the sexual aspects aren't alluded to or referenced (in the same way that Mr. and Mrs. Possible's happy marriage is never shown being sexual either). But there a numerous clues to it throughout the run of the series.
Centurions is the future of the Kim Possible universe.The Centurion Project Kim Possible wore is the basis for the Exo-Frames the Centurions use, and both series featured meaningful punny names.
Shego's twin brothers are actually a single entity.The two Wegos share a single name, "their" power is self-duplication, and nobody ever acknowledges them as individuals. When Hego was playing with Wego and Mego puppets, he only had one of Wego and referred to him as a single character as well. Perhaps they were born as one person the comet split permanently into two as a side-effect of the Me's a Crowd power.
Joss Possible was the trick or treater that mocked Duff Killigan in the episode October 31stThe character is wearing a pink bunny rabbit costume and has the same voice as Joss Possible, who we later see in the series. She also calls Ron "Mister" and Joss is a self acknowledged worshiper of Kim when we first see her. The trick or treater even gets her curse cut short when Duff Killigan arrives and we know that Joss apparently doesn't have a mother figure (thus possibly speaking more like a boy at a young age and cursing).
Kim's parents are first cousins.After Drew failed to get proper dates to his fellow geeks for the college mixer, James related his problems to his family. His aunt or uncle then quickly set up their daughter Anne as an "emergency date" for their nephew. The two hit it off. Twenty or so years later, they're married with three kids. Of course, for this scenario to work, Middleton has to be in a state where cousin marriage is legal. This is why Disney never shows Kim's mom's side of the family: to do so would be to reveal that Nana (or James' dad) is the sibling of one of Anne's parents. (And whether or not you think cousin romance is squicky, if Anne is James' cousin, then can you blame him?
Mrs. Dr. Possible's maiden name is 'Credible'.
Mystical Monkey Kung-Fu is powered by negative emotions.Ron has it, but it's almost never useful. The only times it really works as advertised is when he's feeling strong emotions of hatred or anger. This is why his evil side is able to make it work so well, he's chock full of mean, while good Ron is a fairly gentle soul. When Ron is his normal self, those negative emotions come into play when Kim is in danger above and beyond the usual — hence the opened floodgate of whoop-ass in the Grand Finale.
Kim is a Super Soldier.Unlike the rest of her genius family (rocket scientist father, brain surgeon mother, Gadgeteer Genius brothers), she isn't an omnidisciplinary genius, but she is much more physically adept than them, and while still in high school is a master of combat, able to regularly beat a older, more experienced, superpowered foe. Global Justice seem oddly willing to send a teenage girl to save the day when the fate of the world is in the balance, even when she brings seeming liabilities like Ron with her. Because they created her to able to do it, or know that someone else did.
Ron has the special ability to talk to animals.Aside from the unusually articulate Rufus, Ron has talked to and seems capable of conveying complex communication to mutated cockroaches, genetically-enhanced Dachshunds, and a monkey ninja in the course of the series.
Kim is a Slayer."Adolescent girl with super-powers"? Check. High-school cheerleader takes much bigger enemies? Check. But her world replaces the supernatural with supervillains, like Mad Scientists or aliens.
Wade is an AINo kid could have that much information or tech, he always appears in his room, never ever seems to go to school of any kind at all, and he is never seen in person, only via holograms or vids. Ron even seems to have partially figured it out as he freaked out when one of Wade's robots got trashed, he thought it was the real Wade. As for his appearance in A Sitch in Time, he built a partially biological android duplicate of himself to fend off Shego's henchmen from his AI core, wherever that is. This technology became more fine-tuned as his few appearances in season 4 were due to these duplicates becoming more long-distance capable. Kim did say something about Wade passing his GCSEs in a season one episode, but online courses are amazing these days.
Ron is the Great Blue.In some of the final scenes in the final episode, he not only was an unstoppable badass, but also had a blue skin. This can't be a coincidence.
Drakken is Ron's dad.Their mannerisms and character design are strikingly similar, and they both tend to cause problems for themselves by focusing on the wrong part of the picture. Plus, we haven't seen evil turn anyone else blue, so maybe there's a genetic factor there.
The supervillains are part of an elaborate charade to contain the real threat: Team Possible.At some point in the future, Kim loses Ron (his evil side returns, say, or they just drift apart.) Without his balance, her perfectionism and desire to save everyone leads to Well Intentioned Extremism and she takes over the world to save it from itself. The Tweebs sometimes display a cheerfully amoral approach to their gadgeteering which will help her. Wade has already displayed Evil Genius tendencies when he developed a crush on Monique: he built a mind-control ray to make her love him. Someone travelled back from the future to Set Right What Once Went Wrong (or Global Justice are quite foresighted.) Instead of just killing them, they want to use them for good. The villains get an exciting, well-funded lifestyle with much theatrics and never stay long in jail, even hosting their own trade shows. Fighting them means Team Possible see themselves as the good guys, and mad science and world domination as the province of bad guys. Given Drakken's propensity to earnestly rant about his plans for defeating Kim and ruling the world to Shego, he's unaware of this and she's playing him.
Kim is pansexual.She can do anything. Enough said.
Ron never lost his Monkey-Fist Kung-Fu powers...This is why he can kick so much ass. He just keeps it a secret from Kim to impress her (it worked).
Kim Possible takes place in the Venture Bros. universeAnd the Guild of Calamitous Intent keeps the villains from causing any REAL problems. And any time Kim needs a ride to go somewhere and kick an uppity jerk's rear end, the OSI sends an agent in civilian guise to help her. Side benefits; keeping a handle on the Tweebs, Kim's genius parents and all the trouble Ron gets into by himself. If there weren't the Guild and the OSI keeping things flowing behind the scenes, Kim and her villains would cause a heck of a lot more trouble then they already do.
Global Justice use Kim as a psychological weapon.So, you thought you going to take over the world, but you had your ass kicked by...a carrier group? The 101st Airborne? Delta Force? No, a high school cheerleader and her slacker boyfriend. Shame.
Rufus is an artificially-created animal.He was created by the Genetics Division of Smarty Mart (perhaps DNAmy also worked there in the past) to be sold as the perfect pet for households where one or more of its members have fur allergies. This explains why Rufus can talk (sort of), eat almost anything, live comfortably in a human environment, and seems about as smart as anyone else— these were all features designed by Smarty Mart to make them appealing as pets since normal naked mole rats are unimpressive and ill-suited as household pets. However, only one was ever sold and the line was pulled and discontinued shortly after the lone sale.
Rufus was a Billy Bumbler.Before the world moved on...
The Tara on Kim's cheerleading squad is the Terra from Teen TitansThe girl is blonde. She's the only one that wasn't grossed out by Ron's secret snacks at Camp Wannaweep; she might have actually eaten some, but I'm not sure. She also had a crush on Ron at some point, and Ron has the same jokester personality that Beast Boy has. If the series had run longer, there would have been mysterious earthquakes followed by 'Tara' disappearing.
The entire series is an Indulgent Fantasy Segue from RonDue to being tired with his boring life, Ron started fantasizing the events of the series. Kim is either unreal altogether, Ron's friend that he bestows unreal characteristics on, or a bit of both (she wakes up and goes to school, but doesn't save the world.). Rufus is a stuffed animal that Ron believes to be alive (ala Calvin and Hobbes). Wade is completely made up by Ron, and most of the "missions" feature Ron wandering aimlessly around Middleton (or somewhere else) mumbling to himself.
The whole series is an RPG played by Kim and Ron with Wade as the GMThe reason for Tweebs getting more appearances later is because they blackmailed Kim into letting them play, too.
The series had to end because Kim and Ron break up before collegeKim does rather well in school, at least compared to Ron, and, given the home and things they can afford, the Possible family is rather well-to-do. She has a brain surgeon for a mother and a rocket scientist for a father, so that definitely has some pull in picking out a college. Kim will go to a very good college, while Ron, the slacker that he is, will not. He's too kind and a bit of a pushover, so he won't try and stop her when she gets accepted to some place like Harvard, while he's stuck going to a community college or a state college. The series couldn't go on because Disney wouldn't like someone to deal with the harsh facts of reality.
Kim is an AmazonThe mysterious Masked Warrior seen in "Rewriting History" doesn't just look like Kim, she may be her ancestor. The Masked Warrior may have been an Amazon of Greek Myth. Thus, Kim is of Amazon descent, explaining her Action Girl role. Kingdom Hearts somehow...)
Tara is Zita Flores's adopted sisterIn the (second)Grand Finale, the girl next to Zita in the audience of graduates◊ looks suspiciously like blonde cheerleader Tara. Also, Tara's last name is never given. So, she could be Tara Flores, who was adopted into Zita's Hispanic family for some reason, and they just don't usually hang out in the same social cliques (which is why Ron knew about Tara for a bit, but never knew Zita until the beginning of "Grudge Match.") Yes, I know Zita has a Mexican-sounding accent and Tara doesn't, but that's only in English, because Tara had an identity crisis as a toddler (the only white-skinned, blonde-haired girl in a family of brown-skinned, black-haired Hispanics) and thus culled an "American" English accent from people on TV, who had light skin and yellow har like her. However, when said cheerleader starts speaking Spanish...
Dr. Drakken and Ron are beardsKim realized that a big name superhero could never be a lesbian so she started dating Ron as cover. Shego grew jealous but then realized Kim's plan would work, hooking up with Drakken to complete their cover.
The entire series is an Indulgent Fantasy Segue from KimDespite being attractive, not socially impaired and a talented cheerleader who saves the world on a regular basis, Kim is still as much a Cool Loser as Ron - she seems to have few other friends, and is as intimidated by the Alpha Bitch as anyone. Who says only boys can have action-packed escapist fantasies? (not a Take That at the series, just for the record) Quite possibly she's not even a cheerleader, her family is not full of geniuses, and Ron... is about the same. Or maybe even cooler than her.
Kim doesn't talk back to Bonnie because she has a crush on her.This is the only excuse that makes sense to me.
The Possible family are cousins of The Strong family from Tom StrongThere's something uncannily familiar about the two families of supergeniuses/physical prodigies. While the Strongs devote their enhanced mental and physical abilities to crime fighting and adventuring the Possibles are somewhat more practical (hence the brain surgery and rocket-science), excepting Kim who clearly takes after her great uncle Tom (and even then it seems to take the form of a hobby.) Hell, if you squint, Dr James Possible even looks like a substantially less buff version of Tom - both also have similarly overprotective attitudes to their daughters. Wade's a member of the Strongmen of America whom Tom trusts enough to make gadget's for (or indeed, adapt his own designs for) his favourite niece. Drakken meanwhile keeps a shrine to Paul Saveen in his basement - he probably wanted to be an enemy of Tom's, but wimped out and thus targeted one of his wimpier relatives (of course, this bit him in the ass where said wimpier relative turned out to know Waif-Fu). Of course, now I can't stop picturing the family reunion:
Tesla: Hi Kim, meet my boyfriend Val (indicates the golden skinned, six-foot, ripped, exotically handsome prince of an underground race of lava men)
Kim: Oh hey, cool... this is my boyfriend Ron (indicates the pasty, skinny nerd who is, of course, currently pantless and/or has a mouth full of nachos).
Shego was inspired by ShurikenBear with me here. Here◊ is a picture of Shego. Here◊ is a picture of Shuriken. They are both expert martial artists. Their names start similarly. Both have worked as a bodyguard. The list continues past there.
Marvel will make a Darker and Edgier comic book version of Kim PossibleAfter the Disney/Marvel merger, someone will get the idea to make a comic book version of the teen superhero. Except Kim will be older, Hotter and Sexier, probably working for GJ, and will have slid far to the cynical side of the Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism, up to an including killing people, and taking the Kim/Shego subtext, and turning it into full blown Foe Yay. Ron will be tortured by fear that he isn't ever going to be good enough for Kim, and will have to struggle to control his evil side, which became intertwined with the Mystical Monkey Power, and threatens to turn him into Zorpox on a regular basis. Drakken becomes an insane Mad Scientist, DNAmy strives to create genetic supermen, and work from there for the rest of the villains.
Kim and Ron are destined to be together.Word of God is that Kim and Ron were meant to be together from the start. But what if there's more to it than that? What if fate wanted them together? This is intertwined with the Ron Factor, and Ron's destiny as the Mystical Monkey Master. Also relating to the "Ron is the Great Blue" theory above, Kim was the catalyst for the turn of events, and Ron ultimately defeated the Lorwardians and fulfilled his destiny.
Kim and Tara are twins separated at birthTara just bleaches her hair. Really! Do your own screencap manipulations! Here are a couple of rough ones: Original screencap◊, a rough Proof of Concept◊ and a rougher Reverse Proof of Concept◊, and the roughest of all Secondary Proof◊. This Troper will be troping this in most of her upcoming fanfics. Phineas and Ferb backyard beach episode in their "Spot the Diff" promotion was randomly placing Kim in one of the shots.
Shego is holding back punches when she fights Kim.She can easily murder her in one, two, three in multiple ways, but no. She "loses".
Kim runs on Spiral EnergyA high-school kid can beat supervillains and metahumans through willpower and awesomeness? "Believe in your friends, who believe in you! Kick reason to the curb and you can do anything!"
Kim Possible will be continued in comic book form, as part of the Marvel UniverseKim would fit in pretty well, if perhaps still Lighter and Softer compared to the rest of the current MU. Maybe she'll become part of the Adventures line.
Ron Stoppable is the KP-verse's counterpart of Tony Stark.He did build a fully functional Death Ray
Ron Stoppable will grow up to be Deadpool or Speedball.Kim leads a very dangerous lifestyle; death could happen at the next mission. After this actually happens in a mission that gets Rufus and Wade killed too, Ron becomes horrifically depressed and plunges headlong into mission work as a mixture of meaningful suicide and boredom, gradually becoming loonier: without Kim to curb his Cloudcuckoolander tendencies, more of his personality leans that that way. He cuts off all his previous friendships and connections, eventually making a name for himself in the black ops business. He takes up the pseudonym Wade Wilson as a tribute to Wade, who died years ago eventually contracts cancer (possibly as a particularily nasty scheme by one of his old enemies) and desperate for a cure, joins a VERY shady organization called Weapon X. Inevitably, he becomes everyone's morally bent, deranged mercenary Deadpool. With his memories fragged, he forgets all about his old life, and of course, none of his old villains recognize him, what with the hideous deformities. (Though if any of this gets out, his old villians will have a field day. After all, they get to say that they used to beat up DEADPOOL.) Alternatively, nobody dies. Kim and Ron get married, eventually get superpowers and respectively become Squirrel-Girl and Speedball. They destroy all known evil on Earth, making it a happy-sugar land where everyone's dream come true and go out into space where they punch out Cthulhu for giggles.
Mr. Barkin incapacitates all the other teachers who would have taken Kim's classes.Every class or school activity Kim and/or Ron are involved in is led by Mr. Barkin, who usually explains that he has to fill in because the regular teacher suffered some unlikely misfortune. He arranges these "accidents" because he's either a secret government plant to keep an eye on Middleton's world-saving teen Super Soldier, or he's just personally obsessed with her (or perhaps with Ron).
Kim Possible is in an insane asylumMr. Barkin is Kim's doctor, Dr. Drakken is another doctor, Shego is a fellow patient treated by Drakken, Duff is a security guard, Montgomery Fiske owns the asylum, and Ron is a figment of her imagination so she can impress someone with her "skills."
Kim Possible is going to take command of Global Justice, but will lose her eye in the process.It sort of fits with the SHIELD parody.
Kim and Ron grow up to be Moltov Cocktease and Brock SamsonKind of pushing the boundaries of WMG, but Kim was working as an undercover agent for Global Justice, and took on a Russian accent. In the incident that lost her eye, she got amnesia and had some false memories planted in her to get her to work for the enemy, but rebelled and went into freelancing. (Similar in the theory that Bond's just a codename, but memories are transferred through agents. If they have a brain swap machine in the KP universe, it seems plausible.) Ron, who was with Kim at the time, probably has to change identities in order to not be accused of murdering Kim, so he's changed his looks and manner of speaking to the last person anyone would expect him to act like, Mr. Barkin. He subsequently faked his background info and joined the OSI. Mostly thought of due to the Venture Bros. theory and the eyepatch one. Also, Kim and Moltov have the same hair and eye color.
Bonnie is half hispanic, from her moms sideShe's Ambiguously Brown, though at times it's implied it's a tan. Her sisters don't appear to have the same skin tone as her but her mom does. Her dad is most likely white.
Kim Is really a RobotHer parents can't have kids. So they made some.
Hana is Ron's daughter.Taken from the Headscratchers page to explain the whole shady adoption incident, especially why his parents do that. It can also explain Hana's powers, the reason she needed to be adopted at all and by Ron's parents in particular, Yori's fondness of her (though she hides her feelings well, 'cause she doesn't react to Hana in "Big Bother").
Females are dominant in Lorwardian society.The first Lorwardian we see is Warmonga, who was traveling alone. She convinced Warhok to invade Earth with her. And we've seen her fight only Shego and Kim.
Shego needed a wheelchair before being hit by the rainbow comet.
Shego's rainbow powers are solar powered.It would explain why she spends so much time sunbathing. Plus plants are green because it's the best colour for absorbing the particular wavelengths of light (mostly red and blue) that are most dominant on earth.
The most frequently fought villains represent the Seven Deadly Sins.
The series is really about Ron Stoppable.Is it just me or does Ron get more Character Development than every other character in the series?
Steve Barkin actually is Buzz Lightyear.The same voice actor played Buzz Lightyear in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. Barkin in a later season 4 episode says that he saved the world in the past. So, maybe he was a Space Ranger when he was younger and left for whatever reason. One of the reasons he was attracted to Shego was because she sounds like Mira, and he was reminded of his days as a Space Ranger. He is hard on Kim and Ron because he doesn't want them to fail like maybe he did (re: saving the world), but he can only do so much now that he's a teacher/Smarty Mart employee. Plus, given that he cracked when locked in a crate with Ron in "Fashion Victim" (and when Aliens took over in "Graduation"... maybe part of the reason he left is because he had some kind of freak out similar to Buzz in Toy Story. Also, when Barkin is around women who are attracted to him, he's so awkward about it (see "Downhill" and maybe "Stop Team Go") is because Buzz is so awkward around women he's attracted to (see the last two Toy Story films and possibly some episodes of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command). Or maybe Jessie is somewhere offscreen.
Kim Possible will eventually become the first Pink Power Ranger.
The REAL Reason Shego Turned EvilI don't know whether it's Fridge Brilliance or Fridge Horror, Squick or Fetish Fuel but here it is:
Another Proposed REAL Reason Shego Turned Evil
Ron and Kim "played doctor" together long before they started dating
The Lotus Blade is the same one used by Samurai Jack
The "Imaginary" Rufus that young Ron said was his imaginary friend, was REAL!
Once upon a time, Shego was a star pupil of a ninja school/covert ops camp
Kim wouldn't be the first young sentient being to be mounted as a Lorwardian trophy.Warhok and Warmonga talk about them hunting animals. Yet, they talk about mounting Kim as if it were normal. Any alien race they conquer that dare fight the Lorwardians ends up becoming war trophies. Some of them might even be as young as Kim. So they wouldn't hesitate to kill children.
Bonnie wants some Kim tushieWhen you look at Kim there is nothing wrong with her,and she doesn't try to steal attention away from anybody, she is far too modest. Yet Bonnie is constantly picking on her for absolutely nothing, because... she doesn't know how to express her true feeling. She acts as a total outrageous slut, and a clichéd cheerleader, to draw attention away from who she really is interested in. Too bad Kim belongs to Sheila. Empowered's supervillains are usually less of a jerk than your average superhero...
Shego raped Kim at some point in the third seasonOther than being plausible given their Foe Yay, it would the least plot-hole-y explanation for why Kim was willing to kill her without remorse during "So The Drama". Kim kicked Shego off a building and through a sparking electrical tower and viciously spat that she hated her. There's no way Kim didn't know this could kill her, and Kim has never been nearly that It's Personal about any enemies, even Shego, at any other point in the series, and it was Drakken who came up with the plan. Being so ruthless would be Character Derailment, and being so personal would be inexplicable, unless Shego did something unspeakable and personal to her offscreen. Shego could have conceivably, say, threatened Kim's family in front of her between episodes, but such an incident wouldn't make that much sense for it to never be mentioned by Kim. A rape, on the other hand, would probably never be mentioned by Kim.
Shego loves Dr. DrakkenWell, possibly.
SheGo has the Hotz for KimEither that or she likes her subtly.
1. I know it's been mentioned before.
2. There is all the pet names she calls her, "Princess, Hun, Toots, Kimmie."
3. She's evil and has Fire in her hands, that if given enough force, can break metal. Why hasn't she killed her yet?
Kim is a Pansexual and LesbianWe all agree that Kim would jump at least Shego if given the chance, and for people who don't know pansexuality is loving, and being attracted to someone regardless of gender.
Eric was modeled after Tom Sloane.It's pretty much the same◊ guy◊, except with different drawing styles! Not to mention that many Daria fans felt that Tom kind of came out of nowhere and started going out with the main character. Sounds familiar? And while their personalities are rather different, both are pretty much designed to be "perfect" for the main character. Also, Eric and Kim like the same pizza toppings, which is all that matters in a relationship.
Camille Leon is Formerly FatWhenever Camille is forcibly changed back to her usual form, she bloats out for a second. This is a hint at how she looked before the operation.
After Larry gets the battle suit Kim gives it up to him.She doesn't want it anymore after he's worn it. A nifty way of Holding Back the Phlebotinum
Rufus is 607 from Lilo & Stitch crossover because of time warp power.He just used his powers, after being created to transport himself to Earth and like Stitch, retracted his extra limbs and became Ron's super-awesome pet. Admit it, it explains a lot.
Ron is Satan.He almost outed himself one by admitting he is man of wealth and taste. As to why is he working as bumbling sidekick? Well, he keeps us puzzled about the nature of his game!
Kim and Ron are alternate universe versions of Amy and Rory.Because it would be awesome.
Mr Barkin is a version of what Ron could be.At one point he says something about having saved the world a few times in his day, dating the most popular girl in the school and something to do with eh american football team. All of these can be applied to Ron (sorta). So uhhh... Why not?
The comet that gave Team Go its super powers also amplified certain traits of their personalitiesEach member of Team Go seems to be defined by a certain personality trait. The reason for this is that when the comet hit them it brought out specific personality traits each one possessed and magnified it ten-fold. For example Mego, who would have been prone to slightly self-absorbed/attention-seeking, typical, middle-child tendencies, Is suddenly only concerned with himself and looking out for number one. Hego, the most responsible of the siblings, becomes a paragon of rightious, superhero-y-ness. The twins, who were closer to eachother than anyone else, suddenly appear to be one entity split between two phsyical bodies. And Shego, who was always mischeivous and somewhat morally ambiguous, became evil.
The Roth SL Coupe was named for Ed Roth.It shouldn't be that much of a guess, but the car that Kim drove in Season 4, which we know was called the "Roth SL Coupe" was named for former car customizing legend Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, who ironically hated Disney.
Kim Possible has photographic reflexes.Self-explanatory.
Barkin used to be a member of Global Justice, and during that time he dated ShegoThey do seem already familiar with each other in "Stop Team Go"... Of course, one being a superhero who never had a decent social life and the other being a superspy, they never got an actual date...
Señor Senior Sr. could easily take over the world if he were serious about being a supervillain, and the authorities tend to leave him alone because they know itLook at his performance in "Triple S": the one time he was serious but impoverished he gave Kim a desperate run for her money, and he was only caught because Jr. pointed out they'd get one million dollars as bounty and start to retake their money. Now think about what he could do if he were serious and had his usual assets. On the authorities leaving him alone... They do know where he lives, yet nobody even sent a fleet to get him (and the three countries that would be more bothered by him, France, Spain and the United Kingdom, have a long history of going for the overkill when somebody pulled shit with them). They know he's not serious, and he probably pays for the damage done, so they don't take him down. That, and they don't want to lose the taxes of one of the four richest men in the world.
How the Attitudinator worksIt doesn't act directly on moralities, but on attitudes. By altering the attitude to life of the subject, the original Attitudinator can make a villain more focused and willing to do villainy or, if somehow damaged, take villainous attitude from someone and put it into a Butt Monkey, giving him the motivation to lash back at his tormentors and take what he wants (hence Drakken becoming good and pink-skinned and Ron becoming blue-skinned and the most effective villain of the show), while Electronique's version simply inverts their attitude (hence Team Go becoming powerful villains but still too confusionary to get the job done, Shego losing her rage and laziness to return a superhero, and the tolerant and unmotivated Ron unleashing his Superpowered Evil Side).
The USA won the Vietnam-war in Kim PossibleBarkin mentioned, that he was stationed in Da Nang and in the episode where Ron becomes a master cook, Barkin has a flashback, where he is a soldier in a jungle area. Still Barkin doesn´t seem old enough to be stationed in Vietnam before 1973. And in another episode, Kim and Ron flies with a troop of American paratroopers to Cambodia. So it seems that U.S. troops are post 1973 till the present day still are stationed in Indochina.
Bonnie has an eating disorderHer weight is estimated by Kim as being 105 lbs, and she doesn't look particularly short. Add to that that she is a perfectionist obsessed with measuring up to her taller, thin sisters, participates in a sport where leanness is emphasized, and that her grumpy attitude could be explained by a lack of calories/carbohydrates, and you've got a pretty good case that Bonnie has an eating disorder.
Rufus is Ron's daemon.Self-explanatory.
The main cast are all Exalted of some stripe.Kim is a Dawn Caste. She's good at pretty much everything relating to combat, and- even taking the cartoon's use of Amusing Injuries into account- can easily survive attacks that would kill or cripple a mere human. Her Limit Break is Contempt of the Virtuous- when put under stress, her perfectionist tendencies are magnified, and she becomes less tolerant of flaws in both herself and others. Ron is her bonded Lunar, probably rat-or-monkey-totemed, and he's learning the Celestial Monkey style. No matter what is thrown at him or who he and Kim fight, he always manages to survive somehow, and that's very Lunar-esque. Rufus is Ron's Charm-empowered familiar. That (and Rule of Funny) explains why Rufus is so capable and intelligent. Wade is a Sidereal, likely Chosen of Secrets. He organizes events from behind the scenes, ensuring that Kim and Ron are always where they're most needed. Shego is a Scourge Caste Infernal, a Green Sun Prince. The green flames she fights with are her anima. Kim's father (and possibly her mother) is a Twilight Caste. Drakken is an Infernal of the Defiler caste, who Exalted after the date-robots event in college. Embittered by his failure and humiliated by his friends, She Who Lives In Her Name offered him power, and he accepted.
The show takes place in The NinetiesRecess takes place in 1997 through 1998. It crossed over with 'Lilo & Stitch The Series. Stitch crossed over with Kim Possible, The Proud Family, and American Dragon Jake Long. That means those shows take place in the 90s. It makes sense for the other three series at least.
