WMG / Wander over Yonder

The series is Darth Vader's dream in his slumber chair.

It makes so much sense! When he was Anakin he just wanted to be the greatest in the Galaxy, like a certain someone, he was a man-child in every adaptation. And in the series despite all the violence, nobody dies!
  • There was also one watchdog that said: 'I thought he was called Lord V-!' he gets cut off but you get the gist of it!
  • The watch dogs are also eerily similar to Vader's original clone troopers.
  • His dream is also partially corrupted by the dark side, since there he's still a villain.

Wander is the evolved form of a Fraggle.
Think about it, he's free-spirited, fun loving, always optimistic, and Craig McCracken himself has even stated that Wander could be described as a "nomadic, hippie, Muppet man." The living underground thing? Like previously said, he's probably evolved to be able to live above ground, as well as having his body shape drastically altered to adapt to the change.

There will be Hitchhiker's Guide references.
It's in space and McCracken hasn't been able to go without one.
  • Partially confirmed. Wander Over Yonder's first marathon was called "Wander's Guide to the Galaxy Week".
  • Wander is searching for his towel.

Wander is an AU version of The Doctor
He lived in a really boring, orthodox society until one did he got fed up and stole a blue mount (or did she steal him?).

Wander's backstory will turn out to be incredibly depressing
Because, Disney.
  • Buuut since it's Wander, he won't actually register this.
  • First point more or less confirmed by "The Wanders" (though we still don't know what it is). The second part is jossed, as he seems to really dislike it but accepts it as a very important part of who he is.
  • Considering how Wander obsessively tries to help people, his backstory must have been very traumatic; he doesn't want anyone to endure whatever experience he himself went through.

Wander is a Genius Ditz who wants to save the universe from Lord Hater.
  • All of his niceness is a cover. After all, he kept on annoying Lord Hater until he wasted his wish on him in "The Picnic".
    • Really, this one's all but canonically confirmed already, although with the caveat that it's heavily implied that despite this, his niceness is not at all a cover or act — though some of his other behavior seems to be.
    • Sort of confirmed. As seen in "The Big Day", he is indeed a Genius Ditz but his niceness is not an act. He wants to try and save the universe by befriending Hater and turning him good rather than fighting him.

Wander and Hater used to be best friends.
Lord Hater and Wander used to be friends, albeit with the same problems they have in the modern day (Wander completely driving Hater up the wall). They went to school for a long time together, and when they finally graduated, Hater finally got to do his goal of universal dominion, while Wander finally got to travel the entire galaxy on his own. The first time they meet again is in "The Picnic". It will also be revealed that among their shenanigans, they wore wedding attire. Wander being Wander, he doesn't notice his friend is evil.
  • The possibilities are made apparent in "The Buddies", particularly Hater having a dream (actually nightmare) about him and Wander singing about their friendship. Perhaps Hater has some sort of Freudian Excuse which will be revealed later on.
  • {Jossed}. The creators have confirmed that "The Greatest" is the very first time where Wander and Hater actually meet.

Trudi Traveler's (a new character who will probably be Wander's Distaff Counterpart) only purpose will be to mock shippers
Much like "The City of Clipsville" or "Berry Scary"
  • That, or it will be the most glorious example of The Not-Love Interest in fiction, showing how two character with similar personalities can truly be friends without the romance. The mocking would be mostly meta, with the creators constantly throwing the usual signs and tropes of romance blooming but ultimately Wander and Trudi being only good friends as all the shippers stand there stewing in their own anger from the Word of God. It'll be like invoking Wander's relationship with Hater, except on purpose.

The universe in which Wander over Yonder takes in is known as Yonder
Lord Hater will get a Distaff Counterpart
Named Baroness Something
  • Confirmed. Just didn't expect it to be Lord Dominator, did ya?
Wander's species of Alien are just like Seahorses
Notice how caring Wander was to the egg in "The Egg". This hints probably for his species, the males probably have the offspring and care for it.
Sylivia raised Wander from the time he was a baby
She seems so protective of him. Maybe she was his step-mother, found him as a baby and raised him. I hope we get to see Wander as a baby sometime in the series.
There will be crossovers with the guardians, and the rebels.
Lord Hater and Emperor Awesome are not the only galactic conquerors out there
  • Confirmed. We see several ones in "The Fancy Party": Queen Entozoa herself, The Kremulons, the BLACK CUBE, and the invisible guy whose name never appears.
    • Season 2 focuses even more on this, as Hater is trying to regain his status of number 1 villain while others move in on his territory.
Wander's species is uncommon/rare in the galaxy
Or possibly even the last of his kind.
Wander originally lived on planet Earth
Where he traveled the North American continent (like he did in the original sketchbook) Then he met Sylivia (while she was taking a vacation on Earth) and he decided to travel with her around the galaxy
  • The first scene in the intro showed Wander walking in different Earthly settings, then when Sylvia picks him up, the backgrounds turn into alien-like settings, so probably confirmed or something.

The one time that Wander will become genuinely depressed it will be LITERALLY The End of the World as We Know It.
If Lord Hater ever manages to succeed in actually hurting Wander's feelings, it would actually cause a ripple effect where the very fabric of reality begins to completely crumble into nothingness. The tone of the show will take a 180 as well, as this situation would not be played for laughs, or if it is than as Black as the Comedy as Disney would actually allow.

Wander's physical prowess is based on his emotional state.
  • Which would explain how he's able to do stuff like out-armwrestle Lord Hater in "The Greatest," take on Captain Tim effortlessly in "The Pet," and jump-kick a missile in "The Good Deed" but couldn't escape the cell Peepers put him in in "The Prisoner"—the only times you see him doing incredible feats of strength and speed are when he's in a good mood.
    • Frank Angones mentioned on his tumblr that Wander can perform such deeds when he's high on adrenaline, or rather, "friendrenaline".

Lord Hater and Dr. Doofenshmirtz would be best friends.
  • And they may one day team up to conquer the world.
    • YMMV, I can see Lord Hater calling him a Nerd.

Wander is omniscient, but doesn't always focus hard enough to realize it.
  • That's why his Idiot Houdini tendencies are so strong: sometimes he knew what was going to happen all along, but other times he might've been lost in thought, or just not focusing.

Wander is a relative to Bigfoot.
  • Due to his hairy appearance, Wander looks like a relative to Bigfoot.

Lord Hater is dead.
  • His head is nothing but a skeleton, and voice somehow resembles a zombie. I think he is dead.

Wander is gay.
  • Somehow, he seems to be in love with Lord Hater, Wander appears to be a homosexual.
    • Wander loves everybody. It's platonic.
    • I alwaya thought he was panromantic/sexual.

Lord Hater is a metabeing of some kind.
  • He can shoot lightning from his fingers, create forcefields, give a very scary leer, warp, and who knows what else? He's either a metabeing or a sorcerer.

Lord Hater is an imaginary friend.
  • Think about it. He wears the same shoes as Wilt, and is voiced by the same person as Bloo.

Sob story about Wander having to give up Sylvia.
  • Because it sounds like something Disney would do in at least one episode.
    • "The Rider" does have Wander considering leaving Sylvia, so Confirmed.

The Watchdogs, including Peepers, are Artificial Lifeforms built by Lord Hater (or someone he knows).
* {Jossed}. The Watchdogs are not robots, as stated in "The Axe".
Emperor Awesome likes Wander simply because he knows Lord Hater doesn't.
  • Pretty much canon already. There's a few notable times throughout the series (dating all the way back to "The Greatest", but most prominent in "The Prisoner") where his expressions and behavior clearly let on that he actually does know what he's doing underneath all the silliness — in "The Prisoner", he both very clearly deliberately starts the food fight, and reacts with obvious knowledge of just what he's got his hands on when Peepers tells him about the self-destruct remote, for starters. Then there's his moment of understanding at the statue in "The Greatest", his (literal and metaphorical) references to the weather changing in "The Little Guy", and arguably even how he manages to systematically build up a "tough guy" and criminal reputation in "The Bad Guy" — although he ends up taking that one too far.

Lord Hater will get a Villain Song.
He sort of already does.

In the future, Imaginary friends have taken over the world and went off to space, because it's Craig Mc Cracken. Many designs look like something out of FHFIF, but with outlines!
  • Maybe humanity went extinct, but Imaginary friends survived.
  • Or the earth became too overpopulated for imaginary friends to live, so they were sent to space and made their own civilizations on various planets.

Lord Hater will try and conquer Baaaaa-halla.
With help from The Troll
  • Confirmed, although the troll plays no part in it and it happens offscreen in "The Rager".

Sylvia used to be a space criminal
She has a violent nature, seemed to know Doomstone was supposedly a place for bad guys, and knew how to blend in with the bad guys, need I say more?
  • Her old rider Ryder was very morally sketchy

Wander and Sylvia are high on drugs
And possibly other characters. Also, Lord Hater is the cranky asshole who wants Wander's drugs. Westley the Watchdog is some guy on LH's side who Wander and Sylvia gave drugs. Every planet Wander and Sylvia go to are pot sessions. Emperor Awesome is the local steroid using homosexual. The world is the result of combining weed, crack, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, meth, and LSD into one superdrug called Yonder which Wander and Sylvia smoke.

The Wander we see in the show is the memory of the Wander in the original sketchbook.
Like Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy; Wander is actually old and what we see in the show is a collection of memories from his early traveling days.

The Baaaaa-hallans actually have it in their credo to never harm the innocent.
And if any of them breaks that credo, he is severely punished.

Peepers hides some tendencies of The Starscream.
"You ask me, I should be the one in charge." Not said to Hater's face, of course.
  • The creators have stated that he is more serious about galactic domination than Hater. But he seems to care about Hater too much to betray him.

Peepers drinks ridiculous amounts of coffee.
Hinted by his erratic, changing-in-an-instant animations, speed and volume of his speech, and overall high-strung...ness.
  • But then again, Peepers is voiced by Tom Kenny, who also voiced Dr. Two Brains ([1])…
  • Implied in "The Bad Neighbors" (upended mugs everywhere) and confirmed by Frank Angones on Tumblr.
    Q: Am I correct in assuming Peepers is a coffee diva?
    A: Um, yes. Absolutely.
    Q: How much coffee/the galactic equivalent of coffee does Commander Peepers consume everyday?
    A: All of it.

Westley will return next season.
Wander and Sylvia will come across him again in their travels and he tags along with them for an episode before they part ways once again.

Starting with Westley, an organization for peacemaking travelers will be formed.
Over the course of the series, more characters will come to embrace the ways of Wander and Sylvia and be inspired to journey through space while also spreading kindness and love. As this unofficial organization continues to expand and threaten his conquest, Lord Hater will be all the more determined to capture Wander (along with any of his other associates).

Most zbornak riders choose male zbornaks.
A female zbornak that serves as a mount (like Sylvia) is a rarity.

Lord Hater was genuinely in mourning over Westley.
In the credits he claimed to not know who Westley is even though he said his name during the eulogy and had a statue made in his memory.

Buster is Galactus' puppy dog.
Tell me you don't see the similarities.
  • Well, since Marvel and WOY is owned by the Disney company.....

Some places in the galaxy sell zbornak meat.
Inspired by the simple fact that some places on Earth sell horse meat and it has been stated that zbornaks are horselike.

No matter what their personality type, freedom is an actual physical need for Wander’s species, on par with food and sleep.

Brad and Demurra did date when they were younger.
But after a few months or so, Demurra decided it wasn't working out, that Brad wasn't her Mr. Right, so she broke up with him. Drakor entered the picture not long afterwards. Demurra grew up and moved on; Brad didn't.

People have actually died in the GALACTIC CONJUNCTION 6000.

Wander is a descendant of Dexter and Dee Dee's family
. He has Dexter's red hair and curiosity, but he has Dee Dee's super-ultra-hyper-friendly personality.

Baaaaa-halla is a principality.
As in, the highest authority isn't a king or queen, but a prince or princess. After all, no one was ruling over Prince Cashmere.

Stok has a real disability and is dependent on Harvax to look after him.
He can only talk in little quips, and the reason Harvax pulls him around is because he is unable to walk.

It's possible that Wander is a clone of Pinkie Pie.
He never goes a single episode without smiling, he enjoys throwing parties to an extent (it was only featured in one episode; however, there could be more), he has nearly-boundless energy (aside from sleeping), need I say more?

Season 2 guesses.
  • Hater was have a jealous hissy fit over Dr. Screwball Jones being Wander's nemesis and not him.
    • He was pissed for sure, but it wasn't given that much attention.
  • Sir Brad Starlight will gain a Second Love.
  • The season will be a Cerebus Roller Coaster with Lord Dominator as a Knight of Cerebus and Screwball Jones as Laughably Evil
    • Jossed. In fact, the season seems to be getting darker and darker as it goes along.

The show was originally going to be a Banjo-Kazooie cartoon.
The similarities between the protagonists of each respective series are frightening.
  • Wander and Banjo play banjos.
  • Wander and Banjo are both dumb but want to help people.
  • Sylvia and Kazooie are both rude with a soft side but can fight (and like it)
  • Sylvia and Kazooie do most of the fighting.
  • Sylvia and Kazooie carry their partners around.
  • Wander and Banjo carry things in their hat/back pack.
  • Wander and Banjo are both hairy.
  • Wander and Banjo are both boys and Sylvia and Kazooie are both girls.
  • Even the antagonists have something in common. Gruntilda (from Banjo-Tooie onwards) is a skeleton like Lord Hater.

Probably the reason it didn't become one is because Disney couldn't get the license from Rare Ware/Microsoft so it was retooled into what it is now.
  • Maybe Rare caught on to Disney's scheme and gave them no choice but to cancel the show.

The thugs from "The Buddies" knew Hater was faking all along
Throughout the episode, they growl at Hater each time he tried to abandon Wander. It is possible they knew Hater was only pretending to be Wander's friend, and did this to exact revenge on him for throwing them into the prison planet.

The Insurgents fear Hater because he conquered/destroyed each of their home planets.
This would be a good reason to fear someone. Either that, or they really are just wimps.

Lord Dominator is Lord Hater's daughter or niece.
She got sick of all the attention her dad/uncle got becoming the Greatest in all the galaxy, so when she heard about Wander and how he's been chasing him around the planets, she decided to take advantage of it and donned the Dominator persona just to stick it to him.

And I know what you're gonna say about Lord Hater being a skeleton...-ish guy and Dominator being... not a skeleton...-ish guy, but c'mon. How amusing would that be to know that Lord Hater has a relative who disguises herself as a lava-based brute and takes joy in whatever hellious evil she causes and the reactions of those that witnessed it? Not to mention that interspecies couples exist in this show, so the prospect of these two being in the same family tree isn't all that impossible.

  • Or, alternately, his kid sister. She's deliberately ripping off his signature look. She wants to prove that she's better than he is. She declares that she was having "fun". She wears the same sneakers. And she refers to Hater, Peepers, Wander, and Sylvia as "a bunch of dorks", something many an older brother has heard from his kid sister about his group of friends.
  • Craig Mc Cracken confirmed on his tumblr that Lord Dominator is NOT a teenager.
  • Well, if this theory is true, that would make "The Battle Royale" so much more squicky.

Wander and Sylvia will visit Equestria.
Unlikely to happen due to legal issues and Lauren Faust no longer working on FIM, but you never know. Of course, it's possible they'll visit a planet that resembles Equestria, with similar characters to in FIM, as a shout-out to Lauren's previous show.

The series finale will have Wander and Sylvia visiting the strangest planet in the entire galaxy.
That strange planet being none other than Earth. Bonus points if...
  • Reality Ensues when the government freaks out about these two space aliens, and traps Wander and Sylvia in Area 51.
  • They befriend either a teenage boy who resembles an older version of Mac, or three teenage girls who resemble older versions of The Powerpuff Girls.

We'll meet Sylvia's parents.
And Sylvia's father, as a clever and subtle Actor Allusion, will be very hyperactive and bouncy...just like a certain character April Winchell's father voiced.
  • Bonus points if he's voiced by Jim Cummings using his Tigger voice.
  • Confirmed. According to the description of the upcoming episode Family Reunion, we'll apparently meet Sylvia's mother and father.
  • Well, close. We met her mom. Her dad is apparently deceased. B+

The Mooplexians are human descendants.
In true Nemo Ramjet fashion, these guys are ridiculously weird but weirdly more human than the other alien species. Also, just like every theoretical human descendant, they are physically incapable but extremely powerful psychically. Seriously, look at them and tell me they don't have anything human.
  • ...They don't have anything human. Or at least, they don't stand out as human-ish compared to the rest of the aliens in show.

Lord Hater will develop feelings for Wander.
The resulting guilt will result in him singing a epic but silly parody song called "Heckfire".
  • Before anyone says "They can't have homosexuality on a kid's show!", please remember that society is slowly changing. After all, we got a lesbian couple in ''The Legend of Korra".
    • This is Disney we're talking about. They showed a homosexual couple in one episode of Good Luck Charlie and it sparked up a massive controversy. Not to mention, Gravity Falls tried to feature a short clip of a lesbian couple in one episode and it got turned down. Disney in particular doesn't seem likely to feature a homosexual couple any time soon.
    • Additionally, story editor Frank Angones has stated that Wander most likely won't get a love interest.

Wander will defeat Screwball Jones by telling a sad story or singing a sad song.
Screwball seems to work on the power of funny, from what we've seen from the preview clip. Maybe sad stuff will cause him to lose his powers and turn gray.

Wander knows who Lord Dominator is.
Well, he may not know who she is in character, but he recognizes her face. He had met her grandparents/relatives, and being the immensely friendly, helpful sort he is, was also great friends with them and is knowledgeable to a lot of her embarrassing details. He will see her unmasked, and once that happens, he will refuse to call her anything but her real name (which will, also be rather embarrassing to her) and share embarrassing photos of her. Causing Lord Dominator to actually break character to stop/destroy wander.

Sylvia met Lord Dominator in her past.
Judged by her reaction upon seeing her, granted this is far from the first time that she realized danger at the first sight but unlike other times where she would give a rant to Wander to try and persuade him to get away from it, this time she is too petrified to do anything but whisper nooooooooooo also is possible that Dominator was the one that captured her captive relatives from the trailer.
  • Jossed. She has never met Lord Dominator before and her relatives were not captured.

Wander and Sylvia never left the void.
The rest of the series is just them imagining a copy of the universe in that void, since it can create anything you imagine.
  • But the void only creates things you WANT to happen. Why would it create stuff like Lord Dominator?
    • Maybe the episode takes place AFTER all that.

Lord Dominator will get a Villain Song
One of the episodes in the the Lord Dominator arc has been confirmed to be a Musical Episode. Need I say more?

Wander is asexual and aromantic
Yes, he loves everyone, but not in a sexual or romantic way.

Commander Peepers will be given a Trademark Favourite Food that starts with the letter "P"
In all of Craig McCracken's cartoons, we've had a major character voiced by Tom Kenny: the Mayor of Townsville, Eduardo, and Commander Peepers. All of them but Peepers have a Trademark Favourite Food that starts with the letter "P". The Mayor liked pickles and Eduardo liked potatoes, so logically Peepers will have one too. What will it be? Seeing the other two, it'll probably be a vegetable too.

The Black Cube of Darkness and Zalgo are related
Both are Eldritch Abominations who corrupt people and turn their eyes black.

There'll be a crossover with Avengers Assemble.
Iron Man will want to know how Wander's hat Works and Red Skull will try to lure the Watchdogs into working for him.

Hater will go through a Heel–Face Turn in the series finale
You know it'll happen.
  • As of "My Fair Hatey", Hater and Peepers vowed to save the galaxy so they could rule it afterwards. Perhaps after defeating Dominator, they will come to realize the positives of being good and maybe even help Wander and Sylvia.

Dominator was inspired by Hater to become a villain
Think about it. As Hater mentioned in The Greater Hater, her battle body is reminiscent of his, and their titles match. Even their minions are similar in appearance! After Hater became a pathetic excuse for a villian, however, she was disgusted by him and decided to take his place as the Greatest in the Galaxy, and uses their similarities to purposely mock him when they finally met.

The fourth part of the Dominator story arc will get Dominator to make a Face–Heel Turn, or at the very least make her lose her place in the galactic leaderboard
Why else would we get an entire arc based off her?

Dominator will develop feelings for Wander
This will make Hater hate Wander even more.
  • It seems unlikely, but it would be fun to see!

Dominator somehow didn't know she could absorb powers
She seemed to think she was done for when she was getting frozen and appeared surprised when that ice gave her new powers.

Dominator will try to absorb other powers
Possibly leading to her downfall.

Dominator isn't really pure evil like she claims
She has some goodness inside that she's hiding for some reason. Or, if she really is pure evil, she was turned pure evil somehow.

Dominator's own home planet was destroyed
Either by her or someone/something else.

Dominator's downfall will come from trying to exploit Wander's hat
When she tries to get the Hat to give her what she needs, it might decide that what she needs is to be humbled and conjure a device to sap her of her powers and/or destroy her ship and army once and for all. If it's feeling merciful, it might just give her something to start her on the path to a Heel–Face Turn, but what could possibly inspire such introspection in a Card-Carrying Villain of Dominator's level?

In "The Birthday Boy", Hater's expression at the end was not a Broken Smile, but deliberate
Hater basically forced himself to smile in the hopes that it would get Wander (who had vowed to make Hater smile) to finally go away and leave him alone. He only allowed himself to frown again when he was sure Wander was well away.

Hater will be the star of Craig McCracken's next show
...in a sense. Word of God confirms that Hater started out as a character for a completely different project under the same creator. When Craig saw the potential for him as a WOY character, he was aged and bulked up. And now there's a new McCracken show in the works. Maybe Hater (or more likely, an Expy of Hater) will be in the main cast.

The main voice cast of Wander Over Yonder will voice the main cast of the next animated series of Craig McCracken
April Winchell, Jack McBrayer, Keith Ferguson, and Tom Kenny will bring their talent to whatever it is! Plus, they'll get to work together again even though this show was cut short.

The reason Wander aged in The Waste of Time is because he needs to wander to stay young.
It was shown earlier in the episode that Wander had remained unchanged for over a thousand years, so why would 50 more turn him into a geriatric? Because he spent those 50 years stuck at the Orbal station.

Dominator will ultimately be defeated by everyone Wander's befriended over the course of the show teaming up to stop her

Disney will uncancel the show for another season due to popular demand
I know it's a long shot but I really hope it happens. After all, that's just what happened with Kim Possible.
