* In "Plantywood" where Penn fell in love with Orchid the rose, is that Penn or is it his detective character that's in love? And if it is Penn, is that considered CargoShip?

Added DiffLines:

** I assume just like how Penn and his friends are schoolkids when they're off duty, Rippen being a full-time villain means he quits his teacher job and does evil 24/7.

Added DiffLines:

** In "My Mischievous Son", Rippen becomes a BrattyHalfPint who must see to it that his "father" will be literally ReassignedToAntarctica instead of promoted. If he wins, all he gets to do as a Full-Time Villain is to grow up in Antarctica and find and other ways to make life harder for his "father". Is he that desperate to defeat Penn he doesn't care what an eventual "victory" will bring him?


** Perhaps they're only waterproof when she's zapped as underwater characters.

Added DiffLines:

** "That Purple Guy" proves the amnesia with the Purple Aliens Heroes.

Added DiffLines:

** Aside from that, they don't have a particularly strong masquerade going on. The villains already know who they are, their extended families know what they do (aside from Shashi's, which mostly seems to be a secret to keep them from worrying about her), and Penn openly told the entire school that he has an incredibly important secret job that he can't tell them about. It seems to be more of a "Just don't go around telling everyone exactly what is going on" than a "erase everyone's mind to keep them from finding the truth" type of deal.

Added DiffLines:

** Not sure whether you're saying the residents of Middleburg would need to have their minds erased, or Scaley Briggs himself, but either way, I don't think it's necessary. Out of all the people to get sucked out of their dimensions, Scaley Briggs is probably the least conspicuous. Presumably everyone in the cafeteria either thought he was just a crazy old man, or that he was doing a bit. If it had been someone like Blaze or Nug, I'd understand the need for mind erasure, but Scaley Briggs is literally just a human man. No matter how strange he's acting, a senile old man who believes he's a cowboy who rides dinosaurs is still something that could potentially exist in our world, even if it would be odd. Plus, pretty sure everyone from other dimensions was sucked out through the gate, so it's not like he just materialized into the cafeteria, either. If you're saying Scaley Briggs would need his mind erased after the events of the episode, I'd argue he's not fully with it enough to realize exactly what's happening. And, even if he does, it's firmly established that everyone in his town views him as an incompetent kook, so him going on a spiel about how he traveled to a bunch of different worlds with shape-shifting strangers would probably just get him mocked or ignored.


* Sashi's specs are capable of operating underwater with no problems, yet "Brainzburgerz" shows they can be disabled by being splashed with ketchup? How does that work?

* In "Save the Worlds", Sheriff Scaley Briggs ends up in the cafeteria of Middleburg Central High School at the beginning of the episode. Because the Sheriff is from another dimension and those who know ''why'' he's there can't explain why he's there, doesn't Phyllis have some sort of device that erases people's memories (like at the end of ''Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimention'')? It ''would'' make sense for Phyllis to have such a device in case of emergencies like this, even though all affected would faint, only to wake up and think, "Wait, what happened?".

** I haven't seen the clip in question, but I feel I can safely say Penn (and by extension every other character) is wearing personal clothing and not a uniform. My logic here is that they're changing bodies and forms daily with each mission so there's no point in a uniform. The only exceptions we've seen are the Zeroes trapped in the "Most Deadliest World Imaginable" and Penn himself when he zapped in as himself. My guess in a change of wardrobe would be a Significant Wardrobe Shift.

Added DiffLines:

**This is just a loose idea, but in Universes where Rippen is the main villain there is no better, stronger, villain, or at least none that is active. In "I'm Super!" he's the main villain, and in the return "I'm Still Super!" he takes the side villain role instead of becoming "Professor EVIL PROFESSOR". Same applies to the Milkman, and Lady Starblaster. It could be that becoming a full-time villain means you always take the top spot.


* In the Comic Con look ahead, we see clips from what is apparently the prologue episode. In those clips, Penn is wearing a green sweater instead of his trademark black and white shirt. Did he go through a wardrobe change after his first mission, or is the shirt a uniform?

* What exactly does being a full-time villain mean? If Rippen wins, does he stay in a certain world permanently, or does his consciousness spread throughout the multiverse and take over the bodies of every villain of each world?

** Think of it this way if they were zapped into the red dragon universe would you expect Rippen to be Buffalo Bill of Doctor Hanable 'the canable' Lechter?
