Main trio

    Timothy "Timmy" Tiberius Turner 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foolsdayout088.png

The main character, described as "an average kid who no one understands" in the theme song. Voiced by Tara Strong in the series. In the pilot, Timmy was voiced by Mary Kay Bergman from South Park. He was portrayed by Drake Bell in the live-action movie.


  • Accidental Misnaming: Some characters have gotten his name wrong at least once: His parents in "Boys in the Band", Cosmo in "Fairly Oddbaby", Trixie in "A Wish Too Far!", Tootie in "Oh Brother!", Adam West in "Miss Dimmsdale", and Quddus in the TRL interview.
  • Adorkable: At times, when he's not being a whiny, selfish jerkass, he can come across as a rather adorable kid due to his fun-loving, keety nature.
  • Aesop Amnesia: At least 90% of the episodes' plots wouldn't be possible if Timmy actually remembered the dozens, if not hundreds, of times he learned to heed Wanda's warnings about the consequences of his actions and to actually be careful what he wishes for.
  • Alliterative Name: Timmy Turner: even his legal name is this, Timothy Tiberius Turner.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: He sometimes gets bullied by his classmates for no reason. The opening sequence features him getting laughed at by the other kids on the bus, followed by someone throwing a volleyball at him as he leaves, knocking him face-first into a puddle.
  • All There in the Manual:
    • In the special "77 Secrets of the Fairly Oddparents", his middle name is revealed to be Tiberius.
    • And apparently, even though they've recently contradicted things from a lot of early season episodes, the writers did not change Timmy's middle name. "Manic Mom Day" is so far the only real episode to say Timmy "Tiberius" Turner.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Well, I'm Timmy Turner. I'm ten years old and I have a short attention span. Also...(pauses for a moment, then walks off)
  • Arch-Enemy: Vicky and Mr. Crocker. Both people are the bane of his existence; one for being a sadistic, life-threatening babysitter, and the other for being his evil teacher.
  • Badass Adorable: Timmy Turner has confronted bullies, aliens, and the Darkness ever since his Fairies showed up.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Since Poof’s introduction in Season 6, Timmy developed a brotherly bond and instinct to watch over his baby godbrother.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: With Tootie in the live-action movie. Also with Trixie in Wishology.
  • Big "NO!": A few, "School's Out: The Musical!" for example.
  • Book Dumb: Timmy Turner is incredibly resourceful and able to outsmart adults, fairies, pixies, snarky genies, aliens and all sorts of other beings many times his age, but the series goes out of its way to ridiculously illustrate how bad he is with anything that involves language arts and math; it's a Running Gag that he always gets straight Fs. Although those F's are given by Mr. Crocker...
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Directly related to Book Dumb above; Timmy's not nearly as dumb as people seem to think he is and he has more common sense than the majority of the cast. The problem is that he's also a slacker who doesn't like to put forth the effort to actually apply himself.
  • Butt-Monkey: Parents who would rather go out for a night on the town and tend to discipline you with a cage, a bitchy and manipulative babysitter, a gray-skinned bully, and a spastic teacher who gives you "F"s for the hell of it? Good thing he has fairies.
  • Catch-Phrase:
  • The Chew Toy: Most of the abuse he endures is meant to be entertaining, whenever it's not Played for Drama.
  • Chick Magnet: Tootie's obsessed with him, he has moments of Ship Tease with Trixie, there's an adult woman named Carly that (as implied by a heart-shaped tattoo) he had a brief fling with one night (though he doesn't remember), Trixie's friend/Unknown Rival Veronica has the hots for him, and an episode ends with him going out with a Girl of the Week named Missy.
  • Chosen One: In the Wishology trilogy, Timmy is declared the Chosen One, and he takes every opportunity to remind everyone that he is. He only is because, as it turns out, someone else Missed the Call. Although it's shown in "The Exciting Middle Part" that Turbo Thunder lacked the qualities necessary to be the true chosen one when he tries to attack the guardian of the ice wand without provocation. Timmy on the hand chose to ask for the Guardian's help, proving himself to be the true chosen one.
  • Cool Loser: From time to time. Though he's usually always a pretty charismatic kid, he only has four consistent friends and he has some days where everybody just inexplicably hates him.
  • Cosmic Plaything: He's tormented constantly. The writers even go so far as subverting the Wonderful Life trope by letting the character of Jorgen Von Strangle telling Timmy that his very existence causes misery for everyone. He is also frequently tormented by Francis The Bully, Vicky his evil babysitter, and Mr. Crocker his Sadist Teacher. Even when Timmy wishes for his situation to improve, he is forced to wish everything back to normal (more often than not because said wishes proceed to make things worse!), a very notorious Reset Button, thus continuing his ongoing misery.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may be Book Dumb, but when the chips are down, Timmy can kick a lot of ass. Case in point; coming up with a Gambit Roulette in "Fairly Odd Baby" which completely outwhits and defeats the combined forces of Anti-Cosmo and the Head Pixie. His extended duel with Mr. Crocker in "Abra-Catastrophe" also qualifies.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mostly in the Oh Yeah! Cartoons series, but he does get sarcastic at times in the main series too.
  • Did Not Get the Girl:
  • Didn't Think This Through: A recurring situation he'll go through is that he'll make wish to improve his life without thinking of how easily things can go wrong. Even by season 10, he still hasn't learned this lesson, claiming that thinking doesn't solve anything.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: He likes Trixie, but she ignores him most of the time.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: In Norm's debut episode, Cosmo and Wanda warn him against having Norm grant any wishes for him, because said wishes tend to bite the user in the butt. Timmy retorts that Cosmo and Wanda's wishes always tend to bite him in the butt anyway, and unlike Cosmo and Wanda's, Norm's are rule-free.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Timmy appears as a background character in an early cartoon short Butch Hartman made in 1999 for for Oh Yeah! Cartoons called Terry and Chris. The short can be viewed here. Timmy can be seen in the background at 10:42.
  • Embarrassing Tattoo: A heart with the name "Carly" on it he received during a blackout holiday with Mark Chang. Apparently, Carly is a beautiful woman he met who has her own heart tattoo with Timmy's name.
  • Emotionless Boy: Becomes this in "Emotion Commotion!" when he wishes he had no emotions and became flat and unable to appreciate himself.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: In addition to Sanjay's obsession with Timmy, A.J. was quite attracted to Timmy as Timantha. Not to mention that both Chester and A.J. seemed to be swooning over Timmy when he was aged up to a sixteen year old supermodel
  • Eye Beams: Early on in the first season he wishes for Heat Vision. Due to it never being unwished it shows up in a later episode.
  • Flanderization: His callousness and jerkish tendencies pretty much became him in seasons four and five, to the point that he was completely unlikeable (to some anyway, and you can't blame him considering all the crap he has to put up with). This was downplayed from season six on, before relapsing back into it in the tenth season upon the introduction of Chloe Carmichael.
  • Freudian Excuse: Yes, he can be a whiny, selfish bastard with a Lack of Empathy, but he has a lot of tough stuff going on in his life: his idiotic, Abusive Parents, terrible reputation among his schoolmates, his Sadist Teacher, his Babysitter from Hell... Yeah, it's not hard to see why he has a hard time keeping a smile on his face.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: For the few friends he does have, they can treat him like unreasonable crap at times.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the Wishology special and in the first season episode Power Mad.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Most on the time, his inattention and/or mistreatment at hands of Vicky and/or his parents are Played for Laughs.
  • Idiot Hero: An Enforced Trope: given that the show's premise revolves around him having two near-omnipotent fairies at his command, he needs to be stupid for the plots to require any effort for him to solve (or for the plots to even happen).
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: In one episode he pretended to be a cool rich kid to be accepted in Trixie Tang's social group, only to discover that he wasn't being loved for being himself but for the stuff he wished for.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: Not Your Size May Vary, a number of episodes have Timmy wishing himself to become smaller. Since he's pretty short for his age anyway one would wonder why he would do this so much.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: The eyes represent his youth (10 years old) and the fact he is the hero of the series.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: Downplayed, but he wears a pink shirt and baseball cap.
  • Irony: If the original Channel Chasers canon is to be believed, apparently the little "twerp" will actually play football in college by the time he's 18 and then become tall and buff as an adult.
  • It's All My Fault: Timmy usually says this when his wishes go awfully wrong.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be somewhat jerkish, but he's still a Nice Guy. In fact, it's clear in the "Wishology" trilogy that he's The Chosen One not because he's strong, but because he's kind.
  • Karma Houdini: Every now and then, Timmy causes something horrible to happen with a wish and he doesn't get punished for it. In the episode Mother Nature for example, Timmy's wish causes the entire town of Brightburg to be completely destroyed and presumably thousands of deaths- and it's Played for Laughs and never mentioned again.
  • Keet: He has No Indoor Voice and is very very energetic.
  • Kid Hero: While he often causes as many problems as he solves, there have been cases where danger has occurred through no fault of his own, and he does step up to the plate and become a genuine hero. Wishology is the most known example of this.
  • Kid Hero All Grown-Up:
    • Though the continuity has been snarled to hell at this point with live action movies, newer cartoon episodes, Retcons, and Reset Buttons, he's been shown grown up a few times. In the original canon through Channel Chasers, he apparently keeps Cosmo and Wanda until he's 18 and later goes on to become a badass resistance fighter and spy against Vicky's evil empire. Thanks to some help from the ten year old Timmy, this future was averted and he's shown to have a normal life with his own "average kids". His wife's identity is kept ambiguous (though his kids look like they could be either Trixie's or Tootie's. Tommy has black hair like both Trixie and Tootie and Tammy has Trixie's hair style but wears glasses similar to Tootie's).
    • In the newest continuity from the movies- which may or may not retcon Channel Chasers or even be in the same canon at all- he still has Cosmo and Wanda at 23 and has become even more of a loser, being a Manchild who still lives with his parents and goes to elementary school. Though, by movie's end, he does at least manage to grow up a bit and get together with Tootie.
  • The Kirk: Of the main trio. He isn't as reasonable as Wanda, but he isn't as impulsive as Cosmo (most of the time).
  • Kissing Under the Influence: In "Love Struck!", he jabs himself with a love arrow so he can date Tootie, and in the book Token Wishes, when Tootie wishes he'd kiss her.
  • Locked in a Freezer: With Vicky in "Snow Bound".
  • Loser Protagonist: The entire show revolves around him being a loser in every aspect of life. In fact, the episode "It's a Wishful Life" showed that the lives of all of his friends, family, and enemies, including Cosmo and Wanda, would be much better without him around.
  • Manchild: In the Live-Action Adaptation, he still owns his fairies well into his adulthood.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: "Abra-Catastrophe" established that Timmy spent the first eight years of his life trapped at home with his parents. This is contradicted with a flashback in "The Good Old Days" and his recollections in "Wishology" Part I.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: 99 out of 100 times, the main threat of episode is caused by Timmy himself. To be fair, he does acknowledge this, and does make up for it in the end.
  • Nice Hat: Timmy is almost never seen without his pink hat.
  • No Sympathy: For one episode at least, "Bad Heir Day", has him injured several times while trying to find Poof. Uncharacteristically, Wanda gives him No Sympathy despite the fact Timmy is a Badly Battered Babysitter, mostly because he lied to Wanda about Poof's whereabouts.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: It's been revealed that Timmy made a wish to prevent everyone on the show from aging. This might include him, given how he's being 10 since 1999.
  • Now or Never Kiss: With Trixie in "Wishology" Part II.
  • Only Sane Man: While he can be quite a jerkass, he's not one as much as he is misunderstood; Timmy is usually the show's voice of reason, which he frequently acts as to Vicky, his parents, Mr. Crocker among others.
  • Out of Focus:
    • In Season 9 he has become a supporting character in many episodes, losing protagonism in relation with Mr. Crocker, his dad, Cosmo, and Sparky, ESPECIALLY the two former, and to a lesser extent, Poof and Foop.
    • In Season 10, he has been forced to share the series' limelight with Chloe.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: A few: "Christmas Every Day!" (Birthday Boy), "Shiny Teeth" (a tiara), "Abra-Catastrophe!" (only some funny, albeit magical, glasses) and the first "Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour" implied he has used many more. In the first part of the "Wishology" Trilogy, he LITERALLY uses a paper thin disguise; he covers his face with a Mona Lisa style painting to fool the Dimmsdale Police into thinking he's a woman. (It works.)
  • Picked Last: Apparently happens to Timmy frequently. So much so that one episode had him wish that he was the most wanted kid in the world. Most wanted also has another meaning!
  • Pint-Sized Kid: Despite being about 10 years old, he probably isn't that much taller than most adults' knees. His babysitter, Vicky, is tall enough to worry about tripping over him even. Many argue that this more or less symbolizes how little he feels compared to all the adults.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: What he says about Tootie.
  • Shout-Out: His superhero identity as Cleft the Boy Chin Wonder is an obvious reference to Robin from Batman. His villain identity in "Mighty Mom & Dyno Dad" is a reference to Galactus, a Marvel Comics villain. His middle name is likely a reference to Captain Kirk.
  • This Loser Is You: However, sucking does not prevent him from defeating multiple enemies with or without Functional Magic.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: See Flanderization above. As the series went on, Timmy became more selfish and uncaring towards others. This was downplayed from season six on, before relapsing back into it in the tenth season upon the introduction of Chloe Carmichael. This may be Justified, however, due to all the crap he takes.
  • Troll: He tends to mess with Chloe when she's experiencing misfortune, as shown in "Whittle Me This" and "Girly Squirrely".
  • The Unapologetic: He mentions in "Timmy the Barbarian" that the advantages of being a barbarian are taking what he wants, kicking butt, and never having to apologize.
  • Unlucky Everydude: Described in the intro as "an average kid who no one understands".
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Of his own doom. Abra-Catastrophe shows us that Timmy was the one who originally called Vicky when he believed his parents had abandoned him.

    Cosmo Julius Cosma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cosmo_unverified.jpg
"I'm not bright, big words confuse me, I have the attention span of a rodent, and Wanda loves me anyway!"

Timmy's fairy godfather. Dumb as a sack of bricks, he can barely grant a wish by himself without causing mass chaos. Voiced by Daran Norris.


  • Adorkable: His goofiness and strange way of thinking gives him this status.
  • Alliterative Name: Cosmo Cosma.
  • Ambiguously Bi: He is married to very female Wanda and it's shown that he is attracted to other women as well, but he is also shown to be fanboying over few good looking men.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Moreso than his own godson.
  • Badass Family: Jorgen Von Strangle, the most powerful fairy in the universe, is his cousin.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Even though he's a silly idiot for most of the show, he does have moments where he proves that there's more to him. When Wanda was captured in Abra-Castatrophy, he beefed himself up so that he could save her. Not to mention that got in a few good punches.
  • Big Brother Worship: He brags about his older brother Schnozmo in the episode ''Double-Oh Schnozmo".
  • Bumbling Dad: To his godson, Timmy and later his own son, Poof.
  • The Chew Toy: Cosmo is also somewhat of a Butt Monkey at times. Two words: Super Toilet.
    Cosmo: So much clogging! (gets into fetal position and sucks his thumb)
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Can compete with Timmy's dad in this.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: To Wanda.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Like many fairies, he has the same eye (Green Eyes in his case) and hair colour.
  • The Ditz: One of the dumbest characters, though he starts maturing once he gives birth to Poof.
  • Elopement: With Wanda, unknowingly to (and against the wishes of) Mama Cosma. For 10,000 years. Ahem.
  • Fairy Companion: The premise of the show.
  • Flanderization: His stupidity just got worse in later seasons.
  • Fluffy Tamer: In "This Is Your Wish", to Snowball the Hydra.
  • Friendless Background: He was bullied a lot in high school, and Wanda was the only one that signed his yearbook.
  • Gender Bender: To Cosma in "The Boy Who Would Be Queen".
  • Goo Goo Godlike: As revealed in "Fairly Odd Baby," as a newborn, he caused so much damage with his raw power that the Fairy Council decreed that no other fairy babies would ever be born. Ironically, he was the one that he would later give birth to a fairy baby.
  • Happily Married: With Wanda, depending on the episode, and more often in the earlier seasons than later ones. Lately, has become prevalent again.
  • High-School Sweethearts: According with "The Fairy Beginning", he and Wanda met in the Fairy Academy.
  • Immortal Immaturity: Despite being thousands of years old he acts immature at times and still wears diapers.
  • Informed Deformity: Cosmo is considered very ugly, though Wanda would disagree.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Zig-zags between this and being intentionally insensitive to Wanda.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: In "The Gland Plan".
  • Ironic Name: The name Cosmo carries the meanings of ordered, moderated and disciplined.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sometimes shows that he cares for Wanda and Timmy. Depends On The Writer.
  • Keet: Due to his crazy and careless behavior.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: At his best.
  • The Lancer: Of Timmy's fairy godfamily.
  • Lethally Stupid: When Timmy isn't the one causing problems, it's typically Cosmo and his idiocy that's doing it.
  • Lip Lock: Parodied in "Formula For Disaster".
  • Literal Genie: Apply to him and Wanda (more him) — to quote Timmy: "You guys take things way too literally."
  • Made of Iron: Fairies in general are immortal and can't be killed by earthy means, but Cosmo- being a frequent source of Slapstick humor- seems to be able to take even more punishment than the average fairy thanks to Rule of Funny.
  • The McCoy: He is the most impulsive character of the main trio.
  • Mister Seahorse: In "Fairly Oddbaby", he's the one who gives birth to Poof, not Wanda.
  • Momma's Boy: Is a real doormat to his mother.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: As Clefto the Chinhound, also his and Wanda's most common form are a pair of goldfish.
  • Opposites Attract: Wanda was clearly not as destructive as Cosmo was a baby and is smarter than Cosmo.
  • Parental Substitute: Literally. He and Wanda were assigned to Timmy in response to his neglectful parents.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Sunk Atlantis (nine times, mind you), destroyed Pompeii, etc.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Fairies age extremely slowly; Cosmo and Wanda appear to be child-sized 30-somethings but are, in reality, well over 10,000 years old.
  • Repetitive Name: Cosmo Cosma.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: In "The Gland Plan" his shape shifting gets out of control.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Timmy and Tootie, although he will help Timmy avoid her if needed. Mostly inverted/subverted in the Live-Action Movie, at least until the end.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: In the Oh Yeah! Cartoons and the First Season, he and Wanda act like a loving marriage , and they hold hands and kiss constantly. Eventually these character trait fades, and they began to act like an old married couple, whom sometimes seem to just tolerate each other.
  • Snark Ball: He tends to lampshade his holding this, such as in one episode where he comments that "I know I'm not usually one to inject logic into a situation-whatever a situation is-but..."
  • Shout-Out: His identity as Ace the Chin Hound is a reference to Ace the Bathound, Batman's pet in the comic. His identity in "Mighty Mom & Dyno Dad" was a reference to the Silver Surfer.
  • Too Dumb to Live: If he weren't immortal, he'd be so dead.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Abra-Catastrophe": "5-Second Massive Pecs".
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: While he was still silly in earlier episodes, he wasn't quite known for being dumb. This is especially noticeable in the Oh Yeah! Cartoons segments.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: He, along with Timmy, can be real jerks who are hard to root for, though in Cosmo's case he typically is dumb enough not to know better.
  • Unwitting Pawn: In "Fairy Idol".
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite how he treats them, Jorgen considers Cosmo and Wanda his closest friends.
  • Vocal Evolution: Listen to how he sounds in the Oh Yeah! Cartoons shorts compared to the regular series episodes. It's almost as if Daran Norris didn't voice him in the early episodes, but he did. His voice was a lot deeper and more suave sounding. In the documentary I Know That Voice, Norris explained that he started out as a Phil Hartman impression, but became wackier from there.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: Of course, since he's a fairy, he's able to transform into anything to mask himself from everyone.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green Hair. Justified because he is not Human and Fairies have been shown to have a variety of hair colors.

    Wanda Venus Fairywinkle-Cosma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lovestruck121.jpg
"Oh, shut up and kiss me, will you?"

Timmy's godmother. She's usually the one who sees the consequences of Timmy's wishes, but is often ignored for her very justified worry. Voiced by Susanne Blakeslee.


  • Adorkable: In the Oh Yeah! Cartoons shorts and season one.
  • Anti-Hero: She can range from just nagging to a border-line psychopath, depending on the episode.
  • All There in the Manual: The special "The 77 Secrets of The Fairly Oddparents" reveals her full name to be Wanda Venus Fairywinkle.
  • Berserk Button: Calling her fat and never EVER bet her for a nickel.
  • Burning with Anger: Wanda has gotten angry enough that the flames show up in her eyes, and her hair lights on fire.
  • The Cassandra: She always sees that the wishes will go wrong, and is always ignored.
  • The Chick: Of Timmy's fairy godfamily.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She's get rather displeased when Cosmo ogles another woman.
  • The Comically Serious: Though Cosmo is typically the comic relief character, she can be this.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Like many fairies, she has the same eye and hair colour. Pink in her case.
  • Daddy's Girl: She and Big Daddy love each other..
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Her father dislikes Cosmo immensely, which is somewhat justified considering the fact that Cosmo is the reason that no fairies were born for 10,000 years following his birth.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Especially towards Cosmo when he says or does something stupid.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: In the original shorts (and some of the early episodes), Wanda was just as dim as Cosmo (with them even claiming to be "two halves of one idiot"). But over time, she evolved into the smarter of the two, and the straight man to her husband and godchild's antics. As of late, she seems to be reverting back her original characterization.
  • Doting Parent: To her son Poof, and she's also a mother figure to Timmy.
  • Elopement: With Cosmo, unknowingly to (and against the wishes of) Big Daddy.
  • Evil Laugh: In "A Bad Case of Dairy-uh!"
  • Fairy Companion: The premise of the show.
  • Flanderization: Into a nag, improves in season six.
  • Gender Bender: To "Wando" in "The Boy Who Would Be Queen".
  • Happily Married: To Cosmo, depending on the episode, and more often in the earlier seasons than late ones. Lately, has become prevalent again.
  • High-School Sweethearts: According with "The Fairy Beginning", she and Cosmo met in the Fairy Academy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She has shown to be concern, despite at times being a jerk.
  • Literal Genie: Apply to Cosmo and less her — to quote Timmy: "You guys take things way too literally."
  • Mafia Princess: As revealed in the episode where her father goes missing and she has to take over the family's "perfectly legitimate" garbage collection empire. She ends up making so many outrageous changes (including painting all the trucks pink and insisting on using lace doilies everywhere) that the men take her to "the butcher" as payback. Literally—they take her out to dinner at a nice steakhouse to thank her. Bonus points for the horse head in Cosmo's bed; it's a stuffed animal that he sleeps with.
  • Mama Bear: She will get violent if either Timmy or Poof are threatened.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: As Ace the Chinhound.
  • No Sympathy: At her worst, as seen in "Bad Heir Day".
  • Only Sane Woman: Wanda is usually the only one aware of how insane everything is, or knowing of how bad everything is going to end up. (Just keep her away from chocolate). This fact is often pointed out by Timmy and Cosmo, but they still continue with their antics despite that.
  • Opposites Attract: Wanda is typically more cautious and smarter than Cosmo is.
  • Parental Substitute: Literally. She and Cosmo were assigned because of Timmy's neglectful parents.

Other main characters

    Mr. and Mrs. Turner 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/loveatfirstheight054.jpg

Mrs. Turner: I'll get our coats!
Mr. Turner: Forget it, at the speed we're having fun, our friction will keep us warm!
Timmy's clueless and neglectful parents, they care more about their happiness than Timmy. Mr. Turner is a pencil pusher while Mrs. Turner is a real-estate saleswomen. Like Timmy's other parents, they are voiced by Daran Norris and Susanne Blakeslee. Mrs. Turner was portrayed by Teryl Rothery in the live-action movie.

  • Abusive Parents: More and more so as the series goes on, totally Played for Laughs and mostly depending on the gag more than the plot of the episode. They do love Timmy though, they're more like adult children than truly evil abusers.
  • Action Dad: On occasion, Timmy's dad proves to be surprisingly athletic, preforming complex handsprings and feats of superhuman strength with ease.
  • Action Mom: Surprisingly enough, Timmy's mom has been showing signs of this with the recent increase in focus on the parents.
  • Adults Are Useless: The Show is a parody of abusive, negligent, self-centered modern parents, after all, to the point that Timmy has to dream up fairy-godparents since he's functionally an abused orphan.
  • Almighty Mom: Timmy's Mom attempts to do this to the mean Dr. Wendell after he steals Timmy's ball. Eventually she, without losing her motherly tone, decides to slam Dr. Wendell in the face with the ball and steal his perfect dentures instead.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: What can you say other than poor... poor Timmy. If they're not ignoring him, they're very embarrassing. Forget it, at the speed we'll be having fun, the friction will keep us warm!
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Mr. Turner came off as this in the episode "Miss. Dimmsdale" when he cross-dressed to compete against Vicky. He attracts the attention of Catman (Adam West). He even goes as far as to winning the competition.
  • Berserk Button: Never say Dinkleberg's better in front of Mr. Turner.
  • Birds of a Feather: In contrast to Cosmo and Wanda, Mom and Dad have rather similar personalities.
  • Bumbling Dad: Dad, of course. Mom is a rare Distaff Counterpart example.
  • Bungling Inventor: Timmy's dad, whose already dangerously unstable creations would occasionally get made worse by Timmy wishing for "improvements".
  • Camp Straight: Dad swings into this whenever it's funniest. The time he entered into (and won!) a Beauty Contest particularly stands out.
  • Catchphrase: "DINKLEBERG...!"
  • Carpet of Virility: Mr. Turner, underneath his white shirt and black tie, is rather hairy.
  • Characterization Marches On: Mrs. Turner was a real estate agent in earlier seasons, but since Season 6 onward she is mostly portrayed as a housewife. In "The Old Man and the C-" she made it clear she'd rather make Timmy get a job than have one herself.
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Parody: Not exactly, but Pencil Nexus, the pencil factory where Timmy's dad works, seems to be a pencil-based version of the Chocolate Factory.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Flashbacks show that they've known each other for most of their lives, with Timmy's Dad having a crush on Timmy's Mom since childhood.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In the last seasons, even Cosmo sometimes seems sane compared to Mr. Turner!
  • Comically Missing the Point: They thought "Icky Vicky" was about pumpkins.
  • Competition Freak: Mr. Turner is obsessed with finding something he's better at than Dinkelberg. He also enters a lot of contests for the trophy.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: One of the reasons why Mr. Turner hates Mr. Dinkleberg so much is because he is Mrs. Turner's ex-boyfriend. He also acts like this when Mr. Crocker comes over for a "parent-teacher conference". Although, this is Played for Laughs since he thinks Mr. Crocker is more attractive than he looks and he's worried that he's going to steal his wife away from him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Both of them, but most commonly Timmy's dad, he might be scrawny, cowardly and the stupidest character on the show (which says something when you see his competition) but put Timmy in danger around him and all bets are off. He actually beat up a giant alligator once.
  • Dark Horse Victory: In "Miss Dimmsdale," he ends up winning the pageant against Vicky and the other women.
  • Depending on the Writer: They're either overworked or just neglectful. Mrs Turner's intelligence varies between beings the smarter of the two to being just as stupid as her husband.
  • The Ditz: Timmy's Dad is probably even dumber than Cosmo.
  • The Dividual: While they do have distinct characterizations, with Timmy's dad in particular getting a lot of solo episodes in later seasons, they're generally always together and have very similar personalities.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Mr. Turner's first name was Mom before he changed it. Is it any wonder people called him "Dad" as a kid?
  • Enemy to All Living Things: In the episode when Mrs. Turner enters a gardening contest, her plants die every time she touches them.
    Mrs. Turner: Everything I touch dies!!!
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Timmy's Dad managed to win Miss Dimmsdale over his own wife, after all. In the very same episode, Dinkleburg complimented him on how good he looked in his old swimsuit without a hint of sarcasm in his voice.
  • Flanderization:
    • From overworked and busy to putting Timmy after themselves.
    • Timmy's dad in season 9 hatred of Mr. Dinkleberg has gotten to him stealing from Mr. Dinkleberg. Also his Manchild behaviour has been cranked Up to Eleven.
  • Foil: In Season 10, to Clark and Connie Carmichael, their neighbors. While the Carmichaels are selfless eco-warriors, the Turners are wasteful and selfish. However, while their methods differ, the Turner's extreme self-interest matches the overly-big picture focused the Carmichaels' in the sense that they both neglect (but love) their children.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Not their current names, but back when they were ghost hunters Mr. Turner's name was "Mom" and Mrs. Turner was named "Barnaby". They changed their names after moving from one side of Dimmsdale to the other.
  • Genius Ditz: Timmy's Dad is occasionally shown to be good at mechanics and a number of his creations actually work. Timmy's Mom is also dimwitted and clueless, but she's a bit smarter than her husband and also has her moments of competence.
  • Genki Girl: Timmy's mom is an adult version. Her husband is also a male example.
  • Good Parents: Subverted in the episode, Nega Timmy. What kicks the plot off is after they are humiliated on National Television for being "Bad parents" by a Steve Irwin parody, they decide from then on to be good parents...unfortunately, their definition of "better parents" is more strict and abrasive, prompting Timmy to make a wish to do the opposite of whatever his parents tell him. All goes well...until they tell him to "Be good."
  • Happily Married: While there are a few one off marital problem jokes between them, they are shown to still be deeply in love with each other and regularly go off on romantic getaways while neglecting Timmy.
  • Hartman Hips: Mom, as the picture above shows.
  • The Hedonist: Both seem to live entirely to have fun with each other while neglecting their son.
  • Henpecked Husband: Dad is sometimes submissive to his wife.
  • Homemade Inventions: Mr. Turner is fond of these. Surprisingly, a number of them actually work.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: They can't see all of the obvious hints that Vicky is evil.
  • Idiot Houdini: If it wasn't for Timmy, their antics would've gotten them in huge trouble or even killed on several occasions
  • Inksuit Actor: Daran Norris voices Mr. Turner, who resembles him. He eventually gets to play him for real in the live-action movie.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While both are quite neglectful and put each other before their own son, they do genuinely love Timmy and regularly show it.
  • Lethal Chef: Timmy's mom. She makes horribly-tasting foods to the point Timmy destroys them and waits for dessert. At times, the meals Mrs. Turner makes have been used by Timmy as plot devices.
  • Large Ham: Timmy's Dad.
  • Manchild: Both of them tend to act like irresponsible kids in grown up bodies.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: If Timmy's dad failed the race when he was younger, he would've become a dictator.
  • No Name Given: Only ever referred by their relation to Timmy. Sometimes they're called Mr. and Mrs. Turner, but more often they're called "Timmy's parents". The Season 7 episode "Poltergeeks" did reveal that Mr. Turner was named "Mom" and Mrs. Turner was named "Barnaby" before they changed their names after they moved from one side of Dimmsdale to the other, but it remains unknown what their present-day first names are.
  • Noodle Implements: According to "Vicky Loses Her Icky", the Turners have a Father's Day tradition that involves Timmy sticking a net up Mr. Turner's pants. We're never given any specifics on how this works.
  • Out of Focus: While Mr. Turner has became a more prominent character as the series goes on, Mrs Turner's appearances have become less frequent.
  • Papa Wolf: They have their moments of this, in despite of their usual neglectful attitude toward Timmy. Their best example is in Abra-Catastrophe where they don't hesitate in beating up Mr. Crocker for what he's done to their son.
  • Parental Neglect: They are quite neglectful and extremely selfish (especially Mr. Turner, who grabs things screaming "MINE!"). There are times when they put Timmy's happiness after their own, and in the "Wishology" trilogy they fail to notice he's been in Fairy World for an extended period of time, and don't notice they forgot to take him on two family vacations.
  • Parental Obliviousness: They can never comprehend that Vicky is a Babysitter from Hell, even when the evidence is right in front of them. It gets worse in later episodes where Vicky doesn't even try to hide her true nature in front of them anymore. Taking the worse factor a step further, in "Vicky Gets Fired", Timmy shows his parents incriminating evidence of Vicky torturing him, but they don't even bat an eye. In fact, they only get upset at Vicky and fire her because she erased their reality tape.
  • Parents as People: In the earlier seasons and later in their best moments.
  • Prophetic Name: They were called Mom and Dad as children, though this especially makes sense for Mr. Turner since his name used to be Mom.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Mr. Turner is the sole male fan of Chip Skylark, and wins the Miss Dimmsdale pageant, and enjoys time at a spa, and...
  • Reverse Psychology: Mr. Turner, in "Wishy Washy".
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Mr. Turner has a well known girly scream.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Mr. Turner is jealous of his neighbor Dinkleberg and despises him, despite him being shown to be a rather nice guy.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Timmy's Dad has shown signs of this more than a few times. Primarily it's just him thinking he's gorgeous or him thinking others think highly of him.
  • The Snack Is More Interesting: In "Christmas Everyday", when the world is stuck on Christmas meaning the economy remains closed so the grocery stores and banks aren't operating, everybody laments they want food and money while Mr. Turner laments he wants more eggnog (but nothing else apparently).
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Since Season 7 onward, Timmy's dad has more and more amount of screen-time in the show and he is the main character of many episodes.
  • Sticky Fingers: They seemed to have developed kleptomania in Season 9. In "Perfect Nightmare" it's revealed Timmy's mom steals all the food they eat from Bar Mitzvah. Timmy's dad has a Running Gag of revealing he stole his household appliances from Dinkleberg and he also revealed in "Dog Gone" he steals a lot of pencils from work.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Both started out as relatively normal but quickly became dumber for the sake of comedy.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Mr. Turner has an obsession with eggnog around Christmas time.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Mr. Turner, to an extent. Mr. Dinkleberg donated his kidney to save his life and yet he still thinks that he is evil. Obviously, this is Played for Laughs and it's meant to show that Mr. Turner is stupid and delusional rather than evil.
  • Unnamed Parent: Lampshaded and parodied in "Father Time!": "My real name is (truck drives by), but everyone calls me Dad." This was repeated when Mom showed up. Also in the episode "Odd Jobs" Timmy's father addresses Timmy's class for a career day, and introduces himself by saying "My name is Timmy's dad!"
    • We find out in "Polter-geeks" that Mr. Turner's name was Mom. No wonder he was called "Dad" as a kid.
  • Unknown Rival: Mr. Turner to the Dinklebergs.
  • The Un-Reveal: Several, in regards to their first names.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: The Wacky Parents to Timmy's Serious Child. Timmy is hardly serious, but he sure looks like it compared to them.
  • Weekend Inventor: Mr. Turner.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: At first anyway.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: They wanted Timmy to be a girl.
  • Women Are Wiser: Mrs. Turner is wiser than her husband. Note that she still isn't "wise."

    Vicky 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vickyloseshericky022.jpg
"I don't mean to be mean all the time! I just am!!"

Timmy's malicious babysitter who takes delight in tormenting Timmy and the other children in Dimmsdale. Her two biggest loves are pain and money. Voiced by Grey DeLisle and portrayed by Devon Weigel in the live-action movie.


  • Arch-Enemy: Along with Denzel Crocker, she serves this role to Timmy.
  • Ax-Crazy: She's a crazed psychopath who will go above and beyond to torture kids For the Evulz.
  • Babysitter from Hell: Played straight in the early episodes, when the worst she did was give Timmy chores to do and take away his fun (like forbidding him to watch TV until his chores were done). Exaggerated as the series went on, with her using weapons, blackmail, and framing Timmy for things he didn't do, so that way the Turners will believe that Timmy needs a babysitter because he's a bad kid. She currently provides the image for the trope page.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her regular outfit is a short T-shirt.
  • Beneath the Mask: She pretends to be a nice person in front of Timmy's parents.
  • Big Bad: Of the first few seasons and Channel Chasers, as well as being the most prominent villain in the show, at least until Season 6.
  • Big Sister Bully: Whenever she is not babysitting any children, Vicky often tends to abuse her little sister Tootie to death.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's nice around parents, but by the time they leave her evil attitude surfaces.
  • Blackmail: One of her common schemes.
    • In "Miss Dimmsdale" she forced the Mayor into letting her win a beauty contest by threatening to release photos of what he looked like in the 1970's.
    • In "Boy Toy" she blackmails two kids to do her chores with a photo of them sneaking into an R-rated movie.
  • Butt-Monkey: Whenever she's not the one putting Timmy through this. She deserves it though.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Post-Flanderization.
  • Child Hater: She loves torturing children, like Timmy or her sister Tootie.
  • Couch Gag: Cosmo and Wanda messing with her head in the opening sequence.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: In "Snow Bound" and "Wishology." Inevitable Reset Button in both cases.
  • Demoted to Extra: This is at its worst in A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! where Vicky, who was at one time the show's Big Bad, doesn't even have a full minute of screen time. The two scenes she was in was so unimportant that they were cut out of the TV version of the film to save time. In the main series she appears less and less since Season 6 onwards. See Out of Focus.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Inverted. Timmy's parents are the only ones who don't realize she's evil.
  • The Dreaded: For all the children that she takes care of, and even her own family. Her own parents are terrified on her.
  • Evil Laugh: Often accompanied by a flaming silhouette or lightning strikes with a side of dramatic organs.
  • Flanderization: Vicky went from a normal bully who pushed around children to a totally sadistic psychopath bent on world domination.
  • Foil: Unlike Denzel Crocker, the show rarely portrays her as being sympathetic or comedic, instead being a frightening and rather hateful character.
  • For the Evulz: She seems to torment Timmy and kids alike, just out of pure amusement.
  • Freudian Excuse: In one episode, Vicky sobs to Timmy about how miserable she was as a child, implying that her childhood explains her bitter and sadistic behavior.
  • Gold Digger: She only tried to marry Chip Skylark because she though he was rich, and when it was shown that he wasn't rich, she called off the wedding.
  • Harping on About Harpies: In "Timmy the Barbarian".
  • Hate Sink: As mentioned above, while she was meant to be unlikable in the show, she went from a mere bully to basically the Anti-Christ.
  • Impossible Hour Glass Figure: Becomes this when she accidentally makes herself older in Channel Chasers.
  • Jerkass: In fact, the episode, Tiny Timmy shows her brain is operated by small guys in chairs with different emotions. It shows that "Kindness" never showed up to work. Taken Up to Eleven in "Channel Chasers" and to a lesser extent "Homewrecker" where she spends most of the episode causing destruction and pinning the blame on Timmy.
  • Jerkass to One: Vicky is horrible towards everybody, but she seems to treat Timmy and her younger sister worse.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Whenever there is something good in her, it's she yanks it away just to get a cheap laugh or some kind of a selfish motive for it.
  • Joker Immunity: Timmy keeps her around because if he's not miserable, his fairy godparents will leave.
  • Locked in a Freezer: With Timmy in "Snow Bound".
  • Manipulative Bitch: In "Channel Chasers", she has struck terror into every child and even her own parents who obey her every command, and all make her out as kind and sweet.
  • Mooks: Her role in the video game Enter the Cleft!
  • Only One Name: Only known as Vicky. Her last name is unknown.
  • Out of Focus: Since Season 6 onward. Despite being heavily featured in the intro, she appears as the antagonist less often nowadays compared to Foop, Sparky and Cosmo and especially Mr. Crocker and Timmy's dad.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Her pets, particularly Doidle, are the only things she treats with any respect.
    • Her Out-of-Character Moment in the Thanksgiving storybook (see Villains Out Shopping below).
    • In one comic, she gets angry at Timmy (and attacks him much more ruthlessly) when she finds out that he lied to Tootie.
  • Psycho for Hire: Due to Flanderization.
  • Psychopathic Womanchild: She's a sociopath who tortures children for a living, especially Timmy and Tootie.
  • Punny Name: Icky with a V. "Icky...Vicky...hey, I could write a song about that!" And in the ensuing song, her name is literally spelled out letter-by-letter, making the numerous misspellings of her name even more perplexing.
  • Redhead In Green: Her regular outfit is a short GREEN t-shirt.
  • The Scottish Trope: Saying her name sometimes causes things to die or break.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Her and Tootie. She hates Timmy and is evil to the core, Tootie is nice and loves Timmy.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: She will often get subjected to many injuries when she gets her comeuppance in almost every episode. Justified since she's the main villain.
  • The Sociopath: She is mean and cruel just for the sake of it, and has no moral conscience whatsoever.
  • Take Over the World: In "Channel Chasers". Some dialogue earlier in the movie and a few comic stories suggest this is her ultimate goal.
  • Teens Are Monsters: She's consistently painted as an evil babysitter, but it only brings up her age when Rule of Funny applies. More than likely that she has always been and will always be evil. Her age is a side-effect of being a babysitter. In one episode she's member of a whole club of evil teen girl babysitters. But it's not likely they'll be brought up again.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Tootie's Girly Girl. Vicky is known for being the most fiery, violent girl on the show, and also enjoys skateboarding, snowboarding, and watching anime. Her little sister Tootie on the other hand is nice, and enjoys playing with dolls and dress up. This is shown in contrast especially in the episode "Timmy's 2-D House of Horror" where the two took over Timmy's bedroom; turning one half into a pink and girly room with unicorns, and the other half into a medieval dungeon. Timmy couldn't tell which side scared him the most.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She always wears her hair with a ponytail.

    Jorgen Von Strangle 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jorgen-von-strangle.jpg
"I don't have a lot of friends, okay? I mean, you punch them in the face once and it's all, 'Ooh, stop punching me!'"

The commander-in-chief of Fairy World, he runs the place with an iron fist. He's the most powerful fairy in the universe. Voiced by Daran Norris (not Rodger Bumpass). Portrayed by Mark Gibbon in the live-action movies.


  • The Ahnold: To the point where he recreates Schwarzenegger's role in Terminator 2: Judgment Day in "Wishology" Part I.
  • Bad Butt: Being a parody of Arnold Schwarzenegger, he's about as close you can be to a badass in a kid-friendly show.
  • Big Good: The closest thing the series gets to one, especially in the movies or specials. Though he can be a jerk and is a Rules Lawyer, he leads the Fairies, protects them and their magic, and is more or less the highest good authority in the series (even though he reports to the Fairy Council).
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: He is madly in love with the gorgeous Tooth Fairy. When she dumps him for being a bully, he is completely devastated. In "You Bet Your Wish", he's genuinely driven to tears as he recounts all the civilizations that Cosmo's idiocy ended, even though the events in question happened decades if not millennia ago (he could be crying over how Cosmo's idiocy destroyed his own reputation as a fairy trainer, but in-between sobs he does say, "Those poor people... we can never rebuild their lives!").
  • The Chooser of The One: In "Wishology," he interprets the Cave Prophecy to mean that Timmy is the Chosen One and appoints him as such. (Although it temporarily looks like he was wrong, he's ultimately proven right when Timmy passes the Chosen Test.)
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: He's the head fairy and also the drill instructor.
  • Flanderization: Believe it or not, he's become slightly sillier and stupider as episodes go.
  • Moral Asshole: Even though he is usually a good guy and enforces Da Rules (the fairy laws) to the letter, he still gets kicks out of causing people, usually Binky, pain and threatening violence following his Drill Sergeant Nasty stereotype. He has backed off from it somewhat in recent seasons after marrying the Tooth Fairy.
  • Happily Married: To The Tooth Fairy, although it is implied in "Finding Emo" that they are no longer a couple as Jorgen was shown dating a fairy named Wallet. It could be just another continuity error though.
  • Henpecked Husband: Only the Tooth Fairy can calm him.
  • Hero Secret Service: He spends all of the Wishology trilogy doing everything he can to protect the Chosen One, Timmy Turner.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In "Wishology" Part I. It doesn't last.
  • High-School Sweethearts: According with "The Fairy Beginning", he and the Tooth Fairy met in the Fairy Academy.
  • Idiot Ball: In "Wishology" Part I.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: At the end of "The Gland Plan". Never found Anti-Jorgen.
  • Jerkass to One: Inverted. He’s an asshole to everybody, but he’s a Nice Guy towards the Tooth Fairy, his wife.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sometimes, otherwise just a plain old Jerk Ass. Plus, he loves his wife the Tooth Fairy.
  • Moment Killer: In "Wishology" Part III.
  • Morality Pet: The Tooth Fairy is this to him.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Jorgen von Strangle? Just looking at his build shows he may actually be capable of doing it too.
  • Physical God: The most powerful Fairy (barring fairy babies with their uncontrollable magic), and effortlessly contained Prof. Calamitous' Doomsday Device explosion in the palm of his hand.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: On occasion, mostly for Rule of Funny.
    "Who interrupted my cooking class!?"
  • Reconstruction: Between his design, behavior towards the human hero, and intimidating nature, he more closely resembles classic depictions of The Fair Folk than he does the typical modern depiction of fairies.
  • Sadist: He openly admits in the episode "It's a Wishful Life" that the only thing that can make him laugh is others' pain.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: He has the power and authority to alter Da Rules with the wave of a wand and can bend them if he wishes (ex. erasing Timmy's parents' memories so he can keep his fairies in "Meet the Odparents").
  • Temporarily a Villain: In the episode Action Packed!
  • Testosterone Poisoning: His brand of hobby includes jumping into a live volcano, for instance. This got turned against him, as the way to defeat him is to humiliate him by doing decidedly unmanly things in front of an audience.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: In one of the "Jimmy Timmy Power Hour" specials, he states that the rule forbidding fairies from killing humans is the most sacred rule in the entire book and has a horrified Heroic BSoD when the cast makes him think the rule was violated.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: To Binky, if "Timmy the Barbarian" is any indication. Also, he claims Cosmo and Wanda are his best friends.
  • Vocal Evolution: He used to sound like a complete The Ahnold, but started to have a more emotional voice in season 2.
  • Wedding Day: "Teeth For Two", to the Tooth Fairy.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In "Wishology" Part III, Timmy calls him out for attacking the Darkness just because it looked evil.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He loves to hurt male and female fairies alike.
  • Would Hurt a Child:He also doesn't care if he hurts Timmy and doesn't mind putting him in life-threatening situations.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Also doubles as a Kick the Dog moment. In "Timmy the Barbarian", he skips over the parts Timmy would like.

    Denzel Q. Crocker 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nosubstituteforcrazy036.jpg
"This has to be the work of... FAIRY GODPARENTS!"

Timmy's schoolteacher who, due to an incident in his youth, is obsessed with proving that fairy godparents exists and wants to use their magic to Take Over the World. Voiced by Carlos Alazraqui. Portrayed by David Lewis in the live-action movie.


  • Basement-Dweller: A lot of jokes are made about the fact that he still lives with his extremely smotherly mother.
  • Big Bad: In the later seasons and Abra-Catastrophe, replacing Vicky. A lot of episodes in later seasons resolve around Crocker trying to prove the existence of The Fairy God Parents.
  • Breakout Villain: Originally he was just a back-up villain, really no bigger than Francis. Since Season 7 onwards he seems to have replaced Vicky as the main antagonist, appearing in almost every episode, even if they have to make a side story for him.
  • Bumbling Dad: He makes a pretty good father, surprisingly enough... even if his parenting methods are a bit odd. Of course, when he finds out that Denzel Jr. (in reality, Poof in a Paper-Thin Disguise) is a fairy, he tearfully lets Poof go back to his fairy parents despite the close bond the two formed.
  • Butt-Monkey: He lives with his mother, is despised by most people, get viewed as a Cloud Cuckoolander, and he gets beaten and mauled by everyone on a regular basis.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: "Turner! I don't like that evil look in your eye! That's the evil look in my eye!"
  • The Cassandra: Well, fairies are real...
  • Catch-Phrase: "This must be the work of FAIRY GOD PARENTS!!"
  • Character Tic: Making wild spasms while screaming the line “Fairy Godparents!”
  • Child Hater: He hates children, the sole exception being Poof, who happens to be a fairy, but Crocker briefly raised him as if he was his own son and genuinely cares for him.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Crocker's gone literally mad from losing his fairy god parents (coincidentally, his fairy god parents were Cosmo and Wanda, and it was Cosmo's fault Crocker lost them in the first place).
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: He seems to know almost everything about fairies, correctly, just by virtue of being batshit insane.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: At first, he had a life similar to Timmy's: he had a neglectful mother who left him with an abusive babysitter. He also had fairy godparents (Cosmo and Wanda, in fact), which he used to do good things for people. The end came when he lost his godparents: he forgot all his happy memories, the town shunned him because they forgot all the good things he did, he became obsessed with proving fairies exist thanks to a note he left himself, causing him to lose his sanity, he was laughed out of his college for promoting fairies, and he lost Waxelplax because of his obsession.
  • Depending on the Writer: He's either a competent threat or a complete fool.
  • Dirty Coward: In "Abra-Catastrophe", when the apes take him, he tries to get them to go after Timmy by claiming he's hosting a dinner party.
  • Disappeared Dad: Mr. Crocker's mother is a fairly prominent character in the series, but his dad is never mentioned.
  • Disney Villain Death: Sort of in the Fairly Odd Movie when he falls into a "bottomless ball pit", though it gets undone in the end.
  • Disposable Fiancé: He is this to Hummanuh, who dumps him despite being engaged simply because he won't move out of his mother's basement.
  • Ditzy Genius: He can construct a portal to Fairy World, despite repeatedly being shown to be insane and detached from reality.
  • Don't Tell Mama: Often afraid his mother will find out what he is up to and scold him for it.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: In "Formula For Disaster".
  • Dystopia Justifies the Means: When he takes over the world in "Abra-Catastrophe," the world is shown to be a barren, bleak wasteland, with everyone enslaved to him and forced to bow down to him every hour, on the hour.
  • Enemy Mine: With Timmy in "No Substitute For Crazy", "Future Lost", "Timmy's Secret Wish" and "Wishology".
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Depending on the episode, Mr. Crocker will either hate his mother for smothering him or love the attention he gets from her. In "Married to the Mom" he chooses his mother over his fiancee, Hummanuh.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despite his obsession with fairies, even he finds the idea of separating a baby fairy (IE: Poof) from his/her parents to be too cruel.
  • Evil Teacher: He is Timmy's teacher and one of the main antagonists on the how.
  • Evil Sorcerer: In "Timmy the Barbarian" and "The Big Superhero Wish". His grandfather, Alden Bitteroot, was also a witch/warlock.
  • Fallen Hero: He was originally Cosmo and Wanda's previous godchild, until he accidentally gave up his fairies.
  • Fisher King: Dimmsdale under his rule is bleak and barren.
  • Flanderization: His obsession with fairies, to the point where he inserts the word into every sentence. Also in earlier seasons, he would assume something suspicious was the work of fairies (which he was always right about, of course). Now in most cases, especially Season 9, he assumes the more normal things are the work of magical creatures, while assuming anything suspicious was normal. In early seasons, he was just a jaded Deadpan Snarker of a teacher; now, he's a full-blown Sadist Teacher who enjoys failing Timmy in the most overblown manner possible. In season 10, his obsession with magic is almost completely gone.
  • Foil: To Vicky. While both of them have a habit of making Timmy's life miserable, Denzel Crocker is typically portrayed as being more comical and sympathetic, while Vicky is typically the show's Hate Sink and is portrayed as being quite frightful.
  • Gonk: He's a scrawny man with pale skin, a hunch back, and ears on his neck. (Lampshaded in "Timmy the Barbarian" where Wanda scolds him: "And put your ears back on your head!")
  • Grand Romantic Gesture: Brings Hummanuh a lovely gift...a bouquet of batons!!
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Even discounting his fairy-triggered Berserk Button, there is nothing you can say to this guy without him going crazy.
  • I Always Wanted to Say That: One of the things that make Crocker like the idea of having a child is being able to go to a restaurant and say "table for two".
  • Insane Troll Logic: A rare example where the logic is actually correct. Though Crocker would point out the most obvious assumption as what anyone with common sense would conclude, he immediately follows up with believing that it's the work of FAIRY GOD PARENTS!!!
  • Iron Butt Monkey: All the slapstick he's suffered hasn't crippled him.
  • Jerkass: He shamelessly enjoys giving kids F's, except for A.J.
  • Knight of Cerebus: In Abra-Catastrophe, he's become a much more threat than he ever was before.
  • Large Ham: FAIRY! GOD! PARENTS!!! (contorts and spasms uncontrollably)
  • Living Battery: The fairies rely on him believing in magic so that Fairy World will keep its power. If he stops believing in fairies, then Fairy World will lose power and will eventually fall into a Giant Bucket of Acid World. Jorgen Von Strangle rectifies this so that there are other Crocker-like adults who believe in fairies.
  • Long-Lost Relative: As of Season 10, his nephew Kevin has been introduced, the son of his "estranged sister". Prior to this, Crocker having siblings has never been mentioned.
  • Love at First Sight: Instantly falls in love with Hummanuh as soon as he sees her.
  • Momma's Boy: In "Information Stupor Highway", his mom breaks into his room with a battering ram and forces him to test a gown of hers. Should put him on par with Cosmo...
  • Mordor: What he turns Dimmsdale into in "Abra-Catastrophe".
  • Multiple-Choice Past: In "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker!", it's revealed he used to be Cosmo and Wanda's godchild but lost them thanks to Cosmo (and later Timmy) accidentally revealing his godparents. In "Birthday Bashed!", Jorgen showed a DVD where Crocker had other fairies and lost them when he became too old to have fairies. In "Let Sleeper Dogs Lie", old hidden camera footage shows Crocker once again having Cosmo and Wanda as his fairy godparents (and Sparky as a fairy puppy), but losing them on his 11th birthday due to him becoming too old for fairies, and for being a Jerkass toward them.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • In "Formula For Disaster", he tells Timmy's parents a story involving being a spy, ballerina, and a cat burglar, involving the city of Cincinnati (and mentions that he's not allowed back in that city).
    • In "Crocker Shocker", when he sees how Fairy World copes without the magic from his belief in fairies, he stated he's seen more magic at a bus stop in Toledo but refused to give more details.
  • Only Sane Man: As far as the adults are concerned, he is this. It actually says a lot about how far the Adults Are Useless trope is stretched when Denzel Motherfucking Crocker is the only one who has a clue about what's going on and the Fairie's reality.
  • Persona Non Grata: For some reason, he can never go back to Cincinnati. They even celebrate how long they have been rid of him.
  • Pet the Dog: On several occasions he has shown genuine care for Timmy and also seems to have a soft spot for Poof.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Does tend to act incredibly immature at times. Plus he still lives with his mother.
  • Sadist Teacher: Besides his fairy-hunting obsession, he also takes a sadistic glee in handing out "F" grades to his students, and his favorite child to torment is none other than Timmy Turner.
  • Shout-Out: His identity as Dr. Crocktopus was an obvious reference to Spider-Man's enemy Dr. Octopus, mixed with Dr. Strange.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Since Season 7 onward, he appears in almost every episode and he is the main antagonist (or even the protagonist) of many chapters.
  • Start of Darkness: "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker".
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: He has a tendency to go into violent spasms shouting something. Usually Fairy Godparents.
  • Theory Tunnelvision: Believes that anything even slightly odd must be the work of FAIRY! GOD! PARENTS!!
  • Took a Level in Badass: When he captures Wanda in "Abra-Catastrophe", he goes from a laughingstock to a powerful overlord.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: More and more so as the series goes on. Although he never loses his ability to build impressive fairy hunting equipment, which actually works (sometimes too well), instead losing more common sense.
  • Ultimate Job Security: In his debut episode, he mentions that his tenure is so good that he could get he could get away with killing one of his students' parents with one of his fairy catching devices ("If they survive, they're FAIRIES!! If not, I HAVE TENURE!!") Furthermore, everybody, including the principal of his school, thinks he's crazy, his students constantly fail their tests since Crocker actually enjoys handing out F's, and don't forget how cruel he gets on March 15, yet he still has his job. In real life, a teacher like that would have been fired a dozen times by now.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: According to "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker", he used to be an extremely kind-hearted kid who loved helping others until he lost his fairy god parents (who were coincidentally Cosmo and Wanda themselves), which is when he went insane and turned into the evil, sadistic teacher he is today.

    Poof Thomas Cosma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/antipoof609.jpg
"Poof, poof, poof!"

Cosmo and Wanda's baby son, born at the start of the show's sixth season. Like his godbrother, voiced by Tara Strong.


  • Afraid of Needles: Poof is not happy to learn that in order to be cured of the Chicken Poofs he has to be injected with a very large needle. Fortunately, it turned out that the cure is not a needle but is actually a drink.
  • Babies Make Everything Better: Despite Jorgen Von Strangle being worried about what could possibly happen once he came into the world, once Poof was born, this trope started appearing. His very laughter causes good things to happen, and in "Wishology" his smile turns The Darkness into The Kindness. Poof is also literally magical and the first of his kind born in thousands of years.
  • Badass Adorable: He single-handedly beat up the Eliminator robots with Ninjitsu in "Wishology", and has had a few battles against his Evil Counterpart, Foop, ever since the latter's birth in "Anti-Poof".
  • Big Brother Worship: Loves Timmy to a fault, to the point of refusing to stop crying until he sees his beloved godbrother. This parallels his father’s worship to his uncle.
  • Big Man on Campus: In "Spellementary School".
  • Brainy Baby: In He Poofs, He Scores this is taken literally when he enters Timmy's brain and starts enhancing his soccer-playing skills as instructed.
  • Cousin Oliver: Is Cosmo and Wanda's son added in the sixth season.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Like Timmy, he is male, but is voiced by Tara Strong.
  • Curtains Match the Window: His single strand of hair is the same color as his eyes.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: When he attempts to play football with Denzel Crocker, he ends up sending him flying and buries him in the ground.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A very, very extreme example: something that looked very much like him appeared at the beginning of the episode "Power Mad, the second episode in Season 1.
  • Goo Goo Godlike: Baby Poof is "the most powerful baby in the universe". His father Cosmo also was very powerful as a baby, and he was why Jorgen outlawed (unofficially) fairy babies in the first place.
  • The Heart: Of Timmy's fairy god family.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: The moment he was born, angels started singing in a chorus, it became sunny outside, birds started singing, and deers began to prance happily.
  • McNinja: In "Wishology" Part II.
  • Out of Focus: Despite being Promoted to Opening Credits in Season 9, he's started to appear less and less, while Sparky appeared more and more until he was removed by the end of Season 9. He was completely absent from Season 10 thanks to Chloe, until he eventually reappears in the episode "Certifiable Super Sitter", his only appearance in this season.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In "Bad Heir Day".
  • Person of Mass Destruction: His untapped magic makes him dangerous, though unlike Cosmo he quickly learns how to control it.
  • Pokémon Speak: See the above quote. At least until "School of Crock".
  • Promoted to Opening Credits: From Season 9, the opening was remade to include Poof, though he appears less often in said season.
  • Purple Eyes: His eyes are purple, like his outfit and stand of hair.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: Has this happen to him from time to time. For instance, in Open Wide and Say Aaagh!", Wanda has Poof sent away to Mama Cosma's house the instant Timmy says he might have a sore throat, where he remains for the rest of the episode...which involves Timmy trying to escape a hospital where Vicky is planning to give him a much more dangerous surgery than the tonsil removal he came there for, with her and the equally crazy staff determined to catch him by any means. Similarly, he is entirely absent for all of the scenes in Lights Out'' that feature Cosmo and Wanda supposedly turning into vicious child eating monsters from being in total darkness for too long.
  • Shout-Out: He morphs into King Kong and King Gidorah in "Formula For Disaster".
  • Taught by Television: In "Wishology" Part II.
  • Vocal Evolution: Poof has a much different voice in "Certifiable Super Sitter" than "School of Crock" and "Fairly Odd Fairy Tales".
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: He Shapeshifts when cranky or masking his identity.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has purple hair. Justified because he is not Human and Fairies have been shown to have a variety of hair colors.

     Chloe Carmichael 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chloe_carmichael_profile.png
Chloe Carmichael is an enthusiastic, funny and over-achieving little girl who Timmy has to share his fairies with. She's also Timmy's new neighbor. She first appears in Season 10, and is voiced by Kari Wahlgren.

  • Adorkable: Her kindness and enthusiasm make her this.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: In "Marked Man", she said she doesn't believe aliens exist, despite having a pair of fairies who can use magic. Timmy had to introduce her to Mark Chang to prove their existence.
  • Alliterative Name: Much like Timmy Turner, though only when her middle names aren't included.
  • All-Loving Hero: Almost to a parodied extent, as she is willing to forgive even a giant monster who is destroying the city and doesn't mind that Timmy is a giant jerk to her at first. She even mentioned once that she doesn't believe in hate.
  • Always Someone Better: To Timmy.
  • Berserk Button: She does not like to quit or hear the word "quit". She even treats the word as if it's a swear word.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be nice and friendly to everyone, but she does have her limits.
    • When Jorgen first introduces himself to her by poofing into her room, she gets scared and takes him down.
    Jorgen: Ooh, I like this girl! She's got spunk...and a heel of her foot on my windpipe!
  • Broken Ace: Most people she knows see her as perfect, but she also seems to have really low-self esteem, as she easily feels upset about ruining everything whenever she just wants to help, and nobody wants to be her friend.
  • Broken Pedestal: In "The Fair Bears", when she wished for her favorite cartoon characters, the Fair Bears, were real, she was very excited to see them. But after she learned that they brainwashed Timmy and Wanda to force them to be happy, she immediately loses her love for them.
  • Butt-Monkey: She becomes this during her time with Catman in "Whittle Me This". Later episodes seem to continue with this Sometimes.
  • Childish Tooth Gap: She has a gap between her teeth which emphasize her cutesy look.
  • Child Prodigy: She knows 12 languages, including communicating with dolphins.
  • Cute Bruiser: When she first saw Jorgen, she knocked him to the floor.
  • Demon Head: When warning Timmy never to touch her "Fair Bears" DVD set.
  • Deuteragonist: She becomes the second main character of the series after Timmy in the 10th season.
  • Didn't Think This Through:
    • Despite her intent to help others, she doesn't think about the possible negative consequences of her actions. Her first wish was for everyone to share everything in Dimmsdale but this causes everyone to basically steal from others.
    • In "Fish Out of Water", Chloe wishes that the fish in the lake can fight back against the fisherman. She believes that once the fish beat up the fishermen, the fishermen will learn their lesson and learn to live with peace with the fish. It didn't work at all because 1) it encouraged the fishermen to wage war against the fish, and 2) the fish decide to lead a revolution to take over Dimmsdale.
    • In "Marked Man", When Timmy introduces Chloe to Mark Chang, Chloe thinks that Mark should reveal himself to the public. Timmy warned Chloe that Mark should not reveal himself because the government agents will capture him, but she ignored his warning because she believes that when everyone see the real him, they will love him for who he is. Not only was she wrong, but government agents arrive to take Mark away.
  • Free-Range Children: Because her parents are usually out traveling all over the world, she is usually by herself and spends most of her time helping others or spending time with Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda.
  • Genki Girl: Her official biography describe her as "an enthusiastic, funny and over-achieving little girl."
  • Go-Getter Girl: Chloe is notably an over-achiever with a phobia of quitting to the point where she is even against the word being used.
  • Granola Girl: She cares for the enviroment and likes the idea of becoming an eco-warrior. Notably, though, she does enjoy chocolate and ice cream.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She is blonde and essentially a Nice Gal.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: She is terrible at singing.
  • Informed Flaw: The reason she's considered miserable enough for fairies is because her actions sometimes have unforeseen negative consequences, which allegedly leaves her friend-less... if you ignore her popularity throughout her debut. This is changed in later episodes, as she doesn't seem to have any friends other than Timmy.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: She has blue eyes, which reflect her youth and kind personality.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: Another of the reasons why she needs Cosmo and Wanda as her Fairy Godparents.
  • It's All About Me: Specifically during her birthdays, which she admits are the one day of the year when she puts herself before others, and proves to be as selfish and demanding as Timmy.
  • Morality Pet: She is the only thing that keeps Mr. Crocker from turning full evil and even Foop ends up developing a soft spot for her.
  • Naïve Newcomer: She has a lot to learn about having fairies and being apart of Timmy's adventures.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Chloe's middle names come from the Roman Catholic nun and missionary Mother Teresa, and the astronaut Neil Armstrong, respectively.
  • Nice Girl: She's very nice to everyone around her, and everyone loves her for it. So much so that she apparently won the Nobel Prize for Niceness.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: When she's really excited about something, she tends to grab Timmy's face and put it right next to hers.
  • Not So Different:
    • She can be just as selfish as Timmy when it comes to her birthday.
    • She can also make wishes that can lead to disaster, like Timmy.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: After making her first wish for everyone to share, she loses her cool and niceness when someone towed her house away. Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda were surprised to see her like that.
    Chloe: (seeing her house being taken away) Hey! That's my house! That weirdo is stealing my house!
  • Overly Long Name: Her full name is Chloe Mother Teresa Neil Armstrong Carmichael.
  • Parody Sue: A very blatant example. Besides knowing 12 languages, she has a Nobel Prize, the president's number, and all of Dimmsdale's admiration. Heavily downplayed after her debut.
  • The Perfectionist: A fairly obvious example, this goes to the point that she basically shuts down if her parents suggest she made a bad choice.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Timmy.
  • Selective Obliviousness: She has a tendency to go into denial and will try to cover up her negative feelings in an uncomfortable or bad situation by either trying to spin the situation positively, and/or just blatantly ignoring it.
  • Tsundere: Type B. She may be nice enough to claim a Nobel Prize for it, but it's made evident that she can have QUITE the dark side under certain circumstances. No episode demonstrates this better than "Birthday Battle."
  • Unwanted Assistance: She often tries so hard that she gets ahead of herself, thinks without acting and can end up doing more harm than good. Because of that, she alienates everyone around her and has no friends, leaving her miserable enough to need fairies.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: She always assumes that everyone can get along with each other and accept each other for who they are and assumes that everything will work out in the end. She gets proven wrong every single time.
  • Youthful Freckles: She has some freckles on her cheeks.

Former-main characters

    Tootie 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ohbrother144.jpg
"You're here? In my house? Hm, my Timmy-tracker must be malfunctioning."

Vicky's little sister who harbors an obsessive and unrequited crush on Timmy. Although he usually rejects her advances on account on finding it frightening, Timmy has shown many times in the series to genuinely care for Tootie unlike any other non-fairy or family character, even loaning her his fairies on one occasion note . Like her sister, she is voiced by Grey DeLisle, though in her first appearance she was voiced by Amber Wood. Daniella Monet portrayed her in the live-action movies.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: How Timmy sees her most on the time.
  • Ascended Extra: In the live action movies, where she becomes a main character alongside Timmy and his fairies.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Betty to Trixie's Veronica for Timmy's Archie.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: With Timmy in the live-action movie.
  • Braces of Orthodontic Overkill: Downplayed. Tootie has braces, but they're not the exaggerated headgear type.
  • Butt-Monkey: By virtue of living in the same house as Vicky full-time, she has to put up with Vicky's evil more than Timmy does, with the episode in which Timmy loans Cosmo and Wanda to her revealing that she's actually twice as miserable as he is.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: In one episode where Timmy lends his fairies to Tootie on her birthday, she nearly exposes their existence to the whole town. This could be the reason why she doesn't have fairy godparents, despite her life being even more miserable than his.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Timmy in the live-action movie.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Clingy, although with the exceptions of You Doo and Take and Fake Tootie seems mostly oblivious or uncaring toward Timmy's other crushes.
  • Demoted to Extra: Besides the live-action movies, she hasn't appeared in the series since Season 7. She eventually reappears in one non-speaking cameo in "Dimmsdale's Got Talent?" (a Season 10's episode).
  • Depending on the Writer: Tootie is more consistently written than other frequently appearing characters, since her character mostly revolves around her crush on Timmy. However, in some episodes, Tootie is more girly-like and is unwilling to hurt a fly, while in other episodes she has a more tomboyish and assertive personality.
  • Did Not Get The Guy: Reversed in the live-action movie though, she does get the guy.
  • First Girl Wins: Assuming Vicky doesn't count, the plot of the live action movie and even some of Butch Hartman's posts/tweets/dialog on the movie suggest that Timmy was destined to fall in love with Tootie.
  • Dub Name Change:
    • "Lucie" in the French dub. After the dubbing moved from Belgium to France, her name was changed back.
    • "Trudy" in the German dub.
  • Genki Girl: She tends to be hyper and excitable.
  • Girl in the Tower: In this Spanish comic.
  • Girl Next Door: She is considered a geeky yet sweet girl who lives near Timmy (literally and erroneously right next door to him in Merry Wishmas) but he does not return her affections at first, although Timmy does sympathize with her throughout the series and in The Live Action Movie in his adulthood he eventually falls in love with her.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her regular hairstyle.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears two blue hairbands to keep her pigtails up.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Fairy Timmy at the end of "A Fairly Odd Summer".
  • Invincible Minor Minion: In the video game game Breakin' Da Rules!, she can kill the player in one hit and must be avoided.
  • Meganekko: Tootie wears huge purple glasses.
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: Not counting the live action movie, which takes place in her future.
  • Only One Name: Like her sister, the last name is unknown.
  • Pint-Sized Kid: She is the same height as Timmy.
  • Plot Hole: She's obviously more miserable than Timmy is, and yet she somehow doesn't have fairy godparents. Possibly corrected by the live action movie, although with no mention of this plothole and arguably a little late when she really needed them (when she was actually living with Vicky). However, considering an episode in which Timmy temporarily lent his fairies to her on her birthday where Tootie nearly exposed them to the whole town, this could suggest why Tootie has no fairy godparents of her own; because she cannot keep secrets.
  • A Shared Suffering: Both she and Timmy have to put up with Vicky's torment.
  • She Is All Grown Up: In the live-action movies, where she is played by Daniella Monet. She no longer wears braces or glasses, she is much saner when it comes to her crush on Timmy and Timmy falls for her right away.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Her and Vicky. She loves Timmy and is nice, Vicky hates Timmy and is evil to the core.
  • Stalker Shrine: She has one in her room that's dedicated to Timmy, but that's nothing compared to her Timmy-related merchandise, such as posters and toys of him.
  • Stalker with a Crush: On Timmy. Everytime he is around, she will start annoying him and try to kiss him.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Vicky's Tomboy.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Unfortunately, she doesn't know about the rule that she can't tell anyone about her fairies or they'll go away forever and this is possibly the reason why she doesn't have fairy godparents. See Plot Hole.

    Chester McBadbat  
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/itsawishfullife236.jpg
"No one makes a fool out of Chester McBadbat! Except the school system, the government, and every girl I've ever met!"

Timmy's best human friend, Chester is boy who lives in a trailer and enjoys downing garbage. Thanks to his father's failed career, he is dirt poor. He is currently voiced by Jason Marsden. Formerly voiced by Frankie Muniz. Portrayed by Chris Anderson in the live-action movie.


  • Allergic to Love: Girls give him the hives!
  • All-Loving Hero: A borderline running gag surrounding him in later episodes—the few times we see him with fairy godparents, he uses them to make the world a better place rather than wish for a bunch of stuff for himself. Deconstructed in "Fairy Idol", where the poor kid's naivete makes the world worse instead, despite his good intentions.
  • Big Eater: Especially in "The Big Superhero Wish" where his superhero name is "Matter Muncher Lad".
  • Braces of Orthodontic Overkill: In most episodes, the braces are just a character design, but occasionally it's shown that these braces are practically made of Adamantium. Or stronger. And can deflect lasers.
  • Brown Bag Mask: His father, Bucky McBadBat, is always seen with a paper bag over his head due to the fact that he is ashamed of being the worst baseball player ever.
  • He's also focused on heavily in "Fairy Idol" and ultimately defeats Norm in the end.
  • Demoted to Extra: Like Tootie and AJ, he hasn't appeared in quite some time.
  • Dub Name Change: "Charlie" in the French dub. After the dubbing moved from Belgium to France, his original name was used.
  • Dumb Blonde: Less so in earlier seasons, though.
  • Flanderization: From poor to eating garbage. He also got dumber.

    AJ 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hexgames349.jpg
"Relax, it's just college. I'll be done in two weeks."

Timmy's other best human friend, AJ is a genius that could give Jimmy Neutron a run for his money. He is currently voiced by Gary Leroi Gray. Formerly voiced by Ibriham Haneef Muhammed. Portrayed by Jesse Reid in the live-action movie.


  • Black and Nerdy: The page image. He's black, and a genius, but not very good at social skills.
  • Black Best Friend: One of Timmy's two best friends along with Chester.
  • Child Prodigy: He is in fifth grade and only ten years old and not only does he have the highest I.Q. in his school and his town of Dimmsdale, he frequently invents items which that are futuristic such as a suspended animation tube in one movie. He also can make several clones of himself and is apparently an adviser to the government concerning technology issues.
  • Cloning Blues: He is always growing a clone.
  • Demoted to Extra: Like Tootie and Chester, he hasn't appeared in show after a while.
  • Dub Name Change:
    • "Arthur" in the French dub. After the dubbing moved from Belgium to France, his original name was used.
    • RJ in the Polish dub, though in seasons 3 and 4 (which was dubbed by a different studio) he retains his original name.
  • Flanderization: From being more intelligent than average to a supergenius.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: A.J. has a secret lab in his bedroom which he uses to create clones, inventions, and conduct scientific research.
  • Human Shield: Chester uses him as one in "Transparents".
  • Insufferable Genius: At times. In the episode "Smarty Pants," for example, he openly gloats about his straight A's and rubs them in Timmy's face every chance he gets.
  • Only One Name: Unlike Chester, his last name is never revealed.
  • Out of Focus: Since Season 7 onward, he hardly gets any lines and is lucky if he does.
  • Prematurely Bald: He's ten years old and there's not a strand of hair on his head.

    Trixie Tang 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/awishtoofar013.jpg
"Tell me I'm pretty!"

The popular schoolgirl whom Timmy has an unrequited crush on. She doesn't seem to return the affection unless he makes a wish resulting in it. Voiced by Dionne Quan.


  • Alliterative Name: Trixie Tang
  • Almost Kiss: A running gag between her and Timmy in "Wishology" Part III.
  • Alpha Bitch: Her more common characterization. She is rich, popular, AND lusted after by everyone, including Timmy, the main character.
  • Asian Airhead: Type One, although she lacks prominently Asian features and her ethnicity is unclear (Tang is primarily a Chinese surname but can be Korean as well.). Furthermore, her father appears to be Caucasian.
  • Attention Whore: "Tell me I'm pretty!"
  • Ax-Crazy: In "Just The Two Of Us", with an attempted murder to Timmy.
  • Bare Your Midriff: As Wonder Gal.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Tootie's Betty for Timmy's Archie.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: "Just the Two of Us" and "Emotion Commotion".
  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: When Timmy saved her from the seemingly harmless plant in "Class Clown". Granted, Trixie never realized that this seemingly harmless plant is really a voracious alien monster. (Trixie did briefly see the plant in it's true form but was quickly put to sleep and most likely thought it was a dream when she woke up.)
  • Compressed Vice: Her insanity in "Just the Two of Us!" Possibly a Justified Trope in that it's the only time she's seen without a gaggle of boys around her, so she's becoming unhinged due to having only one boy to give her attention at all times.
  • Cultural Rebel: An Alpha Bitch who is secretly a comic book fangirl.
  • Demoted to Extra: She seems to have suffered from this, especially after Season 7. This is due to the fact that Dionne Quan left the show.
  • Depending on the Writer: Her entire behavior. She can be a Rich Bitch Spoiled Brat or a Lovable Alpha Bitch depending on the episode. You'll usually see the latter in early episodes and the former in later ones.
  • Dub Name Change: "Katie" in the French dub. After the dubbing moved from Belgium to France, her original name was used.
  • Dude Magnet: Is considered the prettiest girl in the school by many boys, including Timmy.
  • Flanderization: From a relatively realistically portrayed Alpha Bitch with hints of Hidden Depths to a very stereotypical Alpha Bitch.
  • Freak Out: An enormous one when Timmy wishes they were the only two people on Earth. Let's just say she doesn't take isolation well.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Her outfit and eyeshadow are purple.
  • Gender-Bender Friendship: She befriended Timmy after he was turned into a girl, going as far to say that if (s)he was a boy, she'd date him/her.
  • The Ghost: She has become this in Seasons 8 and 9, where she is occasionally mentioned but she never is seen on-screen.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: She's a girly and fashionable Alpha Bitch, but in "The Boy Who Would Be Queen" it's revealed she likes "boy things" such as comic books. She also thinks dead frogs are "cool". Timmy inverts them in the same episode by liking soap operas.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: In "Just the Two of Us."
  • Hair Decorations: Her headband.
  • Hates Being Alone: In "Just The Two Of Us", it's shown that she is cripplingly terrified of being alone, to the point of insanity. She may have Borderline Personality Disorder or Histrionic Personality Disorder.
  • Hidden Depths: The episode, "The Boy Who Would Be Queen" reveals that she's secretly into comic books and is too afraid to admit it out of fear of being ostracized.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She must be this if she prefers the Small Names, Big Egos twins Tad & Chad over Timmy.
  • If I Can't Have You...: In "Just the Two of Us," if a bit odd given that she and Timmy were the only people on Earth at that point.
  • It's All About Me: In "Just The Two Of Us!", it's revealed that she doesn't care if someone loves her or not. As long as people tell her she's pretty 24/7 or make her the center of attention, she doesn't go insane.
  • Kissing Under the Influence: She sometimes shows interest in Timmy as a result of one of his wishes (which in at least two cases was brainwashing).
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: On occasion, usually in the first two seasons, prior to Flanderization.
  • Love Letter Lunacy: From Timmy in "Information Stuper Highway". The only part she didn't like was a part his dad wrote.
  • Proud Beauty: She is depicted as a typical spoiled rich girl, a vain braggart who likes to flaunt her outer beauty when she needs a quick fix. She is thought of by everyone at Dimmsdale Elementary to be the most beautiful girl in school.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches slightly below her hips.
  • Rich Bitch: She is very rich and she loves to flaunt it, which add to her status as an Alpha Bitch
  • Satellite Love Interest: She has not much personality outside of being an Alpha Bitch who is liked by Timmy, barring some Hidden Depths revealed in one episode.
  • Shout-Out: Her identity as Wonder Gal was referencing either Wonder Woman or Wonder Girl, her Teen Titans counterpart.
  • Spoiled Brat: Along with Veronica plus her clique boys.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Though she's about the same age as Timmy, she's taller than every boy at her school other than Francis.
  • Yandere: In "Just the Two of Us", she becomes psychotic when she and Timmy become the only two people on Earth, constantly demanding Timmy to adore her and call her pretty at all times. She then attempts to kill Timmy when he breaks up with her.

    Sparky 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sparky.png
"I bark funny!"

Timmy's Fairy Dog. Timmy ends up owning him at the start of season 9. Voiced by Maddie Taylor.

  • Karma Houdini: In "Fairly OddPet", where he causes all sorts of destruction and Timmy forgives him and still keeps him. This is one of the reasons why he's currently absent from the series, though the following episodes made him a more likable —or at least, tolerable— character.
  • Plot Hole/Continuity Snarl: The addition of Sparky brings on some continuity issues, such as Sparky not being there on the end of Channel Chasers (the same contradiction happened with Poof) and him not being in the live-action movies - A Fairly Odd Movie and A Fairly Odd Christmas - both taking place thirteen years after the events of the main series. In A Fairly Odd Movie, there is even a scene in which Wanda states that Timmy doesn't have a dog. The third movie, even after coming out after Sparky's inclusion, does not try to mention his existence.
  • Talking Animal: Unlike Timmy's godparents, Sparky is fine to talk to people sometimes. Anybody is fooled to think that he just "barks funny."
  • Team Pet: Of Timmy's fairy godfamily. Cool Pet for bonus points.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Is that weird barking dog walking on two legs sometimes while being around humans?
