    Mama Cosma
"Now, who would like some I Rather Dislike Wanda Cookies?"

Cosmo's mother, she hates her daughter-in-law and would love nothing more than to see the marriage fail. She is voiced by Jane Carr.

  • Beehive Hairdo: Her hairstyle
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: She teaches Level 14 Probation.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Like many fairies, she has the same eye and hair colour.
  • The Ditz: She acts ditzy and innocent, but she has her moments, believing that her son went missing for 10,000 years while he was going to pick up milk from the store.
  • Doting Grandparent: She loves Poof, commenting in his first appearance that all she wanted was to pinch his cheeks.
  • Flanderization: Originally, she hated Wanda because she hated any girl who would date Cosmo. Now she hates Wanda to the point of abandoning her plans if it would make Wanda miserable.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Seems to have softened up a little after Poof's birth. She doesn't insult Wanda as much as she used to (aside from briefly calling her "thoughtless" in one episode) and Wanda at least seems to trust her enough to have her babysit Poof when he has to be left out of something.
    • Falling in love with Big Daddy over how much they don't like their children being married to each other might have helped as well.
  • Housewife: Apparently.
  • Mama Bear: Much in the same way Cosmo dating Wanda is enough to awaken Big Daddy's inner Papa Wolf, the same can be said for Wanda dating Cosmo being enough to awaken Mama Cosma's inner Mama Bear.
  • My Beloved Smother: She goes to extreme lengths to separate Wanda and Cosmo.
  • Not So Different: She originally kidnapped Big Daddy to get rid of Wanda, but ended up falling in love with him over how much they hate their childrens' marriage.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: To Wanda in the earlier seasons. She'd also be one to Timmy to a lesser extent, since her goal was also to get Cosmo to come back home.
  • Obnoxious In-Laws: To Wanda.
  • Violence Really Is the Answer: Her go-to solution for Wanda.
    Wanda: Over my dead body!
    Mama: (pulls out a chainsaw) Good, you've figured out the REST of the plan.


    Big Daddy
"Gotta go. It's Binky's turn to buy lunch!"

Wanda's father, and head of the garbage collection in Fairy World. He runs the whole thing like the mob, and is even able to intimidate Jorgen. He hates Cosmo (mostly because of his stupidity and refusal to listen to Wanda) but actually loves Mama Cosma for hating Wanda just as much. He is voiced by The Sopranos star Tony Sirico.

  • Almighty Janitor: He runs a garbage collection service, but the threat of getting swamped by magical trash is enough to send even Jorgen to leave him to his own devices.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Given that he's voiced by none other than Tony Sirico, it should go without saying that he's known to do his fair share of sarcastic one liners.
  • The Don: His trash collection racket is run almost exactly like the mafia.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sure, he dislikes Cosmo immensely, but he clearly loves his daughter, and warms up to Timmy after a while. He and Mama Cosma even fell in love over the fact that neither of them like their childrens' marriage.
  • Meddling Parents
  • Missing Mom: It's never explained who his ex-wife (Wanda and Blonda's mom) is.
  • Mistaken for Murderer: Big Daddy's men in "Big Wanda".
  • Neighborhood Friendly Gangster: Big Daddy's organization acts like your typical gangster family, with Big Daddy himself even voiced by Tony Sirocio, but they work in garbage collection.
  • Noodle Incident: He (allegedly) had something to do with the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and caused some unspecified misfortune to happen to Hootie & the Blowfish.
  • Not So Different: Mama Cosma originally kidnapped him to get rid of his daughter, but they came to love each other over the fact that he doesn't like their children being married either.
  • Obnoxious In-Laws: Cosmo is this to him.
  • Opposites Attract: Mama Cosma loves Cosmo and hates Wanda. Big Daddy loves Wanda and hates Cosmo. Both of these are pretty much their defining characteristic. And because of that, they love each other.
  • Overprotective Dad: After meeting his son-in-law and Timmy, he decides to force Wanda to pack her stuff and move back in with him.
  • Papa Wolf: Cosmo being married to his daughter Wanda is enough to invoke this trope.

"I can't believe my frump of a sister beat me!"

Wanda's twin sister, who looks identical to her except for the fact that she has blonde hair instead of pink hair. Blonda's the female lead of "All My Biceps," a popular soap opera in Fairy World—despite her success as an actress, she's never won a Zappy-award and is the only fairy in Fairy World (even her sister, Wanda, has won one) to not have one. She is voiced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus in her first appearance, and by Tara Strong in her following appearances.

  • Dude, Where's My Reward?: The only fairy who has never won a Zappy.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: She's identical to Wanda except for her blonde hair, and is considered hotter. Subverted in "Fairy Idol," where she's revealed to be a natural brunette.
  • Long-Lost Uncle Aesop: "The grass is always greener on the other side." After this moral comes out, Blonda is gone for several seasons.
  • Mafia Princess: Wants nothing to do with it, though.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Blonda was based on Susan Lucci; her not winning a Zappy is a reference to Lucci's Emmy Award losing streak from 1978-1998.
  • Remember the New Guy?: After first learning that Wanda has a sister, Timmy wonders why he's never met (or heard of) of Blonda prior to "Blondas Have More Fun."
    Cosmo: Now I remember! They hate each other!
  • Sibling Rivalry: With Wanda, to the point where Wanda suggests "samurai swords to the death" as a way of settling their differences.
  • Ship Tease: "Fairy Idol" implies that she's in love with her sister's ex-boyfriend, Juandissimo (she definitely finds him attractive).
  • Theme Twin Naming: Wanda and Blonda.
  • Twin Switch: In "Blondas Have More Fun".

    Juandissimo Magnifico
"Timmy, I must say two things. First off, I'm incredible to look at..."

Remy's fairy godfather who also happens to be Wanda's ex-boyfriend. He's extremely vain and narcissistic, and despite how his name looks, it's pronounced "Wan-DISS-e-mo". Voiced by Carlos Alazraqui.

  • Ambiguously Bi: His defining character trait is that he's still madly in love with Wanda, even though she's married with a child—but in "Wishology," it's implied that he and Cupid are dating.
  • Anti-Villain: In episodes where he is with Remy, he is his godparent and has to grant all of his wishes. In Wanda's Day Off, he acts like a jerk to his costumers and is constantly pressuring Wanda, but still respects her wishes enough (albeit reluctantly) and isn't really malicious. And in Jerk of All Trades, he is just doing his new job and isn't malicious AT ALL. You can't really call him evil, he is mostly just a jerk. Later episodes show he was actually on good terms with Cosmo back at the Fairy Academy.
  • The Casanova: He flirts with just about any woman he sees, but the only woman he truly loves is Wanda.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Everyone swoons over him even though he's a massive jerk.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: In "The Fairly Oddlympics" at least.
  • Fairy Companion: To Remy.
  • Friendly Enemy: Especially in "The Fairly Oddlympics".
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: In "The Fairly Oddlympics" and "Poof's Playdate."
  • Gratuitous Spanish: He is prone to using random Spanish words and phrases when he is talking. And yet, weirdly enough, in "Stupid Cupid" he claims that he doesn't know what the phrase "Muy caliente" means, he just knows that it's "Spanish for something".
  • Heel–Face Turn: In later episodes, where it's implied that he is no longer Remy's godparent, he is pretty helpful at best and a harmless nuisance at worst.
  • Hidden Depths: He cares greatly for his godkid Remynote , he was willing to defy Jorgen and Da Rules to get back to him fortunately this was also a plan by Jorgen to get him out of the odd-jobs he was doing (poorly). He also was friends with Cosmo back at school.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Remy loses Juandissimo originally in a Fairy Duel. Which was Juandissimo's idea in the first place.
  • Ladykiller in Love: While lots of female fairies clearly love Juandissimo (and even some male fairies seem to feel the same way), Juandissimo's still has his feelings for his ex-girlfriend, Wanda, the only woman he's ever truly loved.
  • Latin Lover: Parodied to hell and back.
  • Lethal Chef: He's no good at cooking. Jorgen decides to punish Remy for his jerkassery by having Juandissimo cook for him.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: A rare male example.
  • Macho Latino: He certainly behaves like this. He repeatedly shreds his shirt by flexing his muscles.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Invokes this continuously.
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: Invoked and ultimately subverted. While the ape is actually charmed by Juandissimo's guitar, he was supposed to rescue Remy, which he failed to do.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Most of his villainous actions are only because Remy tells him to.
  • Narcissist: He sees himself as very attractive and is often seen checking himself out in the mirror. If "Poof's Playdate" proves anything, he's been like this ever since he was a baby.
  • No Guy Wants to Be Chased: When Wanda becomes infatuated with him in "Stupid Cupid," he is instantly turned off—he basically says that men are the ones who should do the chasing and not the women.
  • Odd Friendship: With Cupid—it's implied in "Wishology" that they're dating.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: As Timmy in "Birthday Bashed".
  • Punch-Clock Villain: As stated above, all his villainous actions are only when he works for Remy. Otherwise, he's mostly passive.
  • Reformed, but Not Tamed: Even in episodes where he is on Timmy's side, he still acts like a narcissistic jerk.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Every fairy suffers from this.
  • Shirtless Scene: His shirt explodes off him whenever he flexes. And then it poofs on again.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": It's uncertain whether his name is supposed to begin with "Ju" or "W". According to the draft script for "Wishology", available here, it's indeed "Juandissimo."
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He considers himself to be one of the greatest fairies alive—while many fairies (female and male alike) certainly find him attractive, but that's basically his only real "talent."
  • Stalker with a Crush: On Wanda—even after she and Cosmo get married and have a son, he's still madly in love with and insists on pursuing her.
  • Those Two Guys: With Cupid in later episodes.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: As all fairies.

"You're going to need love. Lots of love."

The fairy of love and the patron saint of Valentines Day. He is voiced by Tom Kenny.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Has pink hair, clothes, calls his golden love arrows "fabulous", has a stereotypical Camp Gay voice and mannerisms, in "Wishology," he is shown to be on what seems like a date with Juandissimo and is kind of disappointed when a MALE monkey dumps him. However, he doesn't seem to like it when Juandissimo always rips his shirt off and once fell in love with Mama Cosma after Timmy hit him with one of his own arrows.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: His health is correlated to how much love is in the world; he nearly dies when Timmy wishes for men and women to be separated.
  • Jerkass: Even Cosmo picks up on it in one episode.
    • Jerkass Gods: Brags about his powers and taunts Timmy about his lack of control over his own love life. Not to mention the fact that he takes bribes (despite already being filthy rich).
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's greedy, manipulative, and prideful, but genuinely cares about True Love. He is also quick to forgive Timmy for nearly killing him in “Love Struck!”
  • Kissing Under the Influence: In "Apartnership!", to Mama Cosma.
  • Love Potion: Love arrows, as the original mythology of Cupid.
  • Mooks: His role in the Fairy World levels of Enter the Cleft!
  • No "Arc" in "Archery": We never see arrows in his quiver. Considering that he is a fairy, they likely that arrows appear by magic.
  • Odd Friendship: With Juandissimo.
  • The Plan: In "The Big Bash" he organizes a scavenger hunt to gather items. What the contestants are retrieving? His groceries.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He loves the color pink—although it's justified in his case since he is the God of Love and pink is one of the colors traditionally associated with romance.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Every fairy suffers from this.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Timmy and Tootie. Considering he's Cupid, this could be a serious hint about their future together.
  • Those Two Guys: With Juandissimo in later episodes.

    Tooth Fairy
"Jorgen, darling, how many times have I told you how I hate appearing in public WITHOUT MY MAKEUP!"

The most popular fairy, and the one who travels between Earth and Fairy World the most. She married Jorgen. Voiced by Grey DeLisle.

  • Bystander Syndrome: In "Shiny Teeth".
  • Curtains Match the Window: Like most other fairies, her eyes and hair are the same color.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Ask Timmy to help save Chip's teeth (who came to her willingly mind you) then threaten to rot his if he fails. What?
  • Eternally Pearly-White Teeth: Obviously.
  • Expy: To Wonder Woman, being not only the (Fairy) World's Most Beautiful Woman but outright borrowing several of WW's design elements, such as the tiara and star-spangled shorts. Most obvious in her debut episode "Shiny Teeth", where she equips Timmy with gadgets like bulletproof braces and a truth-forcing floss lasso.
  • Fairy Sexy: She is recognized as the most beautiful female fairy. It helps that she has a humanoid body.
  • Happily Married: To Jorgen, although it is implied in "Finding Emo" that they are no longer a couple as Jorgen was shown dating a Fairy named Wallet (although that could just be a continuity error).
  • Hartman Hips: Thanks to her humanoid body.
  • Head-Turning Beauty: She's so attractive, even Cosmo drools over her (despite being married to Wanda).
  • High-School Sweethearts: According with "The Fairy Beginning", she and Jorgen met in the Fairy Academy.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Jorgen.
  • Ms. Fanservice: There are good reasons other fairies consider her very attractive.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Every fairy suffers from this.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She is one of the few adult-sized fairies.
  • Tooth Fairy: She is the only fairy in Fairy World to do that job, and does not take it lightly when someone else takes up her job.

    Binky Abdul
"I'm sorry! I thought the Black Plague was a band! I didn't know it would wipe out half of Europe!"

Fairy World's most unlucky resident. He seems to work as Jorgen's assistant. Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.

    The April Fool
"What's up with that?"

The patron saint of April Fools Day, this fairy loves to pull pranks and tell jokes. Unfortunately, his jokes can sometimes get out of hand. He is voiced by Daran Norris.

  • April Fools' Day: Obviously.
  • Catchphrase: See his quote above.
  • The Fair Folk: Definitely more mischievous than most fairies.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: He runs on peoples' laughter, but needs to complete his jokes before anyone can laugh at them. Otherwise he bloats up like a balloon and eventually explodes.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He would destroy the Earth "for the funny".
  • Plot Hole: In "Christmas Every Day" he wanted to destroy Santa for not letting him have his holiday, but in "Fools Day Out", a few episodes later, he was surprised it existed.
  • Rule of Funny: He'll do anything if it's funny.
  • Shout-Out: His Catchphrase above comes from Jerry Seinfeld.

    Dr. Rip Studwell 

"Don't worry Cosmo, everything's looking fantastic...on me. You, on the other hand look like you're in a lot of pain."

Fairy World's resident doctor, he delivers his lines in an over the top, soap opera fashion. Voiced by Butch Hartman.

  • Bad News, Irrelevant News: Most of the time, much to the annoyance of the main cast. Provides the page quote, too! He only breaks the trend when he says "you made it" or just says something worse without including any "good" news.
  • Chick Magnet: Female fairies really like him.
  • Creator Cameo: Voiced by Butch Hartman.
  • Dr. Jerk: He comes across as an egotistical and apathetic doctor who doesn't care much for his patients. That said, he does get his job done.
  • Glasses Pull: He will poof up glasses just to invoke this trope.
  • Good News, Bad News: His Mad Libs Catch Phrase.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: His design was based on Butch Hartman.
  • Insufferable Genius: Is egotistical when it comes to his medical knowledge.
  • Large Ham: His constant invocation of using his full name certainly lends to this.
  • Open Heart Dentistry: He seems knowledgeable in all areas of medicine. Justified, since he's immortal and has had plenty of time to learn everything. The only exception was actual baby delivery—although in Dr. Studwell's defense, Poof was the first fairy baby born since his dad, Cosmo, was born (which happened well over ten thousand years earlier).
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Every fairy suffers from this.

    Billy Crystal Ball & Simon Sparklefield 

Simon: I'm quite scared. Would you hold me?

Two celebrities in Fairy World. Billy Crystal Ball is a talk show host as well as host of the Zappys. Simon is an executive in charge of several reality shows and a judge on Fairy Idol. Both are voiced by Carlos Alazraqui.

    Fairy Hart 

"I'm Fairy Hart, reporting live from Fairy World Hospital."

Fairy World's resident news reporter. She's always looking out for news, particularly if it involves baby Poof. She is voiced and named after Mary Hart.


    Fairy Council 

"We should, like, party!"

A group of fairies that govern Fairy World. Their acts include forbidding any more fairies to be born and selecting the Chosen One. They are voiced by Tom Kenny (?).

  • Black Cloak: Well, cloak anyway.
  • The Chooser of The One: They're shown holding auditions for the Chosen One in "Wishology." (Sure, the guy they chose Missed the Call and couldn't pass the test, but nice try.)
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In Timmy's Secret Wish, they aged the population of the Earth fifty years and wiped Poof from existence This was all because Timmy's wish violated the rules: he wished everyone would stop aging so he could keep his fairies forever then wished Cosmo would forget he granted it.
  • The Faceless: We never see their faces.
  • In the Hood: Always.
  • Omniscient Morality License: They make Da Rules, punish kids for crimes like making a secret wish, and no one seems able to question their judgment or morality.
  • Skeleton Government: The Fairy Council is revealed that handles a lot of things, like declaring that no more fairies are to be born. The "Wishology" trilogy shows us that they are still active.


How well does it match the trope?
