    Dark Laser
"Just hear me out, 'cause once you get a taste of the daaaark power, you'll never go back."

A sci-fi movie villain Timmy wished to life. Now he floats in space, waiting for a chance to destroy the Earth and conquer the universe. Doesn't he look familiar? Voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.

  • Badass Cape: Just like his inspiration.
  • Breakout Villain: A one-time villain in his first appearance, a Continuity Nod in his second, then suddenly a recurring baddie after Poof's birth between the sixth and eighth seasons. He eventually returns to be a regular villain in the tenth season.
  • Captain Ersatz: Of Darth Vader.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: As nearly all the villains of the show
  • The Dark Side: He tries to corrupt Timmy with the dark powers.
  • Darth Vader Clone: Some TV guide misprints even refer to him as Vader. What's particularly odd about the show's usage of the trope in this way, however, is that one of the movie specials aired before Laser's first appearance featured A series of Timmy's dreams wherein he relived several iconic scenes form famous movies, one of which was the "I am your father" swordfight in Star Wars, which uses a character who looks exactly like Vader, to the point that the only ground on which he could be claimed as a separate character is probably that he's never named at any point in the brief sequence.
  • Enemy Mine: With Timmy vs. The Darkness in "Wishology".
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He may be set on conquering the universe, but at least he's willing to share it with Flipsy.
  • Friendly Enemy: Or at least friendly enough to let Timmy use the Death Ball as a disco ball.
  • Galactic Conqueror: At least he wants to look like this.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In "The End of the Universe-ity".
  • I Lied: Also in "The End of the Universe-ity".
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Flipsy.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's very concerned with the interior design of the Death Ball.
  • We Can Rule Together: To Timmy, in "The End of the Universe-ity". Makes sense since he's a parody of Darth Vader.

    Dr. Bender and Wendell 

Dr. Bender: And now I'm going to get medieval on your mouth!

Dimmsdale's resident dentist and his son. Both take great pleasure in acting like complete jerkasses. Both are voiced by Gilbert Gottfried.

  • A Lighter Shade of Black: While Wendell can be just as obnoxious as his dad, even he can be annoyed by his father scaring away the other kids.
    Wendell: You're the reason I don't have any friends!
  • Big "NO!": Dr. Bender in "Shiny Teeth".
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Constantly give these grins.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: They fail to appear in the series since Season 5.
  • Demoted to Extra: After "Shiny Teeth," Dr. Bender began only making sporadic speaking cameos, voiced by Butch Hartman attempting to imitate Gilbert Gottfried's voice, before eventually disappearing from the show (see above.)
  • Depraved Dentist: Dr. Bender.
  • Hypocrite: They often judge people by how bad their teeth are, compared to their "perfect" ones. The hypocrite part comes from Bender's teeth being dentures.
  • Generation Xerox: His son is identical to him in every way.
  • Impossible Thief: In "Shiny Teeth" they manage to steal Chip Skylark's teeth.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: In "Scary Godparents" Wendell claims that his dad is the reason why he doesn’t have any friends.
  • Jerkass: Dr. Bender is obnoxious, rude, and stubborn. He also loves that the kids are scared of him and gives candy to their for causing tooth decay.
  • Manchild: Dr. Bender is an adult with the mentality of a child with the way he thinks in "The Same Game."
  • Missing Mom: Wendell's mother remains unaccounted for.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Dr. Bender.
  • Narcissist: In "The Same Game", their arrogance in being better than everybody else leads Timmy to wishing that everyone on Earth were identical grey blobs to spite them. Even still, the two of them somehow maintain that they are "greyer and blobbier" than everybody else.

    Remy Buxaplenty
"Winner gets to keep his godparents, and loser, and by loser I mean Turner, forgets he ever had them..."

A lonely rich godchild. He resents Timmy for having real parents and godparents. He is determined to make Timmy lose Cosmo and Wanda. Voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.

    Other Unwished Wishes 

Gary: Laughing maniacally... not cool.

More often then not, Timmy's wishes go awry, meaning he creates some interesting baddies for himself to fight. Even after being unwished, they are confined to storage, which only increases their hatred for Timmy. Oddly, this storage contains several things that Timmy technically never wished for in the first place, like the Sphinx, the Gigglepies, and the Founding Fathers.

    Norm the Genie
"This is my evil laugh, I've been working on it for a little bit, what do you think?"

A genie trapped in a lava lamp, he schemes to be free, and he doesn't care who he has to step on to get free. He is voiced and named after comedian Norm MacDonald .

  • Big Bad: Of "Fairy Idol"
  • Deadpan Snarker: Every sentence coming out of Norm's mouth is usually biting snark.
  • Cool Shades: Always seen with a pair of those.
  • The Dreaded: Timmy is absolutely terrified of him, which is all the more telling given that they had only met once. It is justified, though, as Norm has incredible magical power and the cunning to match, with Timmy only defeating him by catching Norm off guard with a surprisingly smart wish.
  • Evil Laugh: It's more of an evil cackle really, but he's working on it.
  • Exact Words: Part of how he messes with people's wishes, by following the orders to the letter and not an inch more.
    Norm: Guess you should have wished for an omelette on a plate!
  • Faux Affably Evil: He may act friendly and amusing, but don't be fooled. His fun-loving demeanor conceals a manipulative sadist.
  • Genie in a Bottle: Technically a lava-lamp.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: A classic, given that he is a genie, above all, Norm wants to be free from the lamp. Unlike more benevolent examples of this trope, Norm doesn't care who he has to step on to get there.
  • Irrational Hatred: "Well, I'm off to destroy Canada. (darkly) They've had it too good for too long."
  • It Amused Me: The main reason his wishes always blow up in the face of the wish-maker, Norm just really enjoys messing with people.
  • Jackass Genie: He makes his wishes backfire all the time, and seems to enjoy doing so. However, Timmy Lampshades this by saying that the wishes Cosmo and Wanda makes also backfire, with no effort on Norm or any other genie's part.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Anything made of SMOOF, though it's forgotten after his debut. He cites it as one of the three things he can't escape from, alongside magic lamps and "the charms of Barbara Eden".
  • Large Ham: He is chatty and fun-loving, and loves to gloat about his evil schemes.
  • Manipulative Bastard: When he actually has a plan he wants to implement, he's very good at twisting his master into making wishes to benefit him.
  • The Nicknamer: He rarely adresses people by their real name, instead giving them insulting nicknames.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently somewhere between the episodes involving him, Cosmo gave him "Da Rules", because it had no pictures in it.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: His first two appearances he really isn't motivated to do much and mainly just a Jerkass. Then in "Fairy Idol", he shows that when he's got the right motivation, he can be a great player of Xanatos Speed Chess and got a Near-Villain Victory.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Well, in a lamp.
  • Troll: His existence seems to revolve around granting wishes that intentionally backfire, all for his own amusement.
  • Villain Episode: "Back to the Norm".

Anti-Cosmo: Hey, that's cheating! I like it!

The evil counterparts of the fairies, opposite of them in every way. While fairies spread happiness, the anti-fairies delight in spreading bad luck, especially on Friday the 13th. Each fairy has an opposite among the anti-fairies, who hold the opposite character traits. They are lead by Anti-Cosmo. He and Anti-Wanda are voiced by Daran Norris and Susanne Blakeslee, respectively. Their newborn son, Foop, is voiced by Eric Bauza.

  • Affably Evil: Anti-Cosmo.
  • Always Chaotic Evil: The anti-fairies are, or at least are believed to be, this.
  • Arch-Enemy: Foop to Poof.
  • Balance of Good and Evil: An anti-fairy is born for every fairy. As such, when Poof is born, Foop is inevitably born as well.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Foop acts like this to Chloe when he sees what kind of monster Vicky is.
  • Berserk Button: Anti-Sparky has, not one, but three, which include correcting him, raising your voice at him, and looking him in the eye.
  • Beware of Vicious Dog: Anti-Sparky.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Anti-Cosmo, with H.P, in "Fairly Oddbaby" and "The Fairly Oddlympics".
  • Bizarro Universe: Anti-Fairy World, and every Anti-Fairy is the opposite of their counterpart in both moral compass and personality (Anti-Cosmo is an Evil Genius, Anti-Wanda is a harmless dimwit, Anti-Poof is the pure evil Foop, and Anti-Sparky is the same as Anti-Cosmo, but to a lesser extent).
  • Breakout Villain: Since Season 7 onward, Foop has became more and more prominent as one of the main antagonists of the series and he has more amount of screen-time in the show. On the other hand, his parents (and his race as a whole) have became very much Out of Focus thenceforth.
  • British Stuffiness: Anti-Cosmo.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Foop is the best example.
  • Characterization Marches On: In their first appearance ("That Old Black Magic") it's established that humans can't see them without special glasses. Then, in their next appearance ("The Gland Plan") Timmy can see them without them. This is Hand Waved in "When Nerds Collide" by saying the invisibility is only on Earth, and immediately afterward this ability is taken away. Fair deal... except that, in the first appearance, Timmy needed the glasses in Fairy World too.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: In "The Fairly Oddlympics".
  • The Chessmaster: Anti-Cosmo and Foop.
  • Demoted to Dragon: Foop in "Man's Worst Friend", due to his fear of Anti-Sparky.
  • Didn't Think This Through: In "Timmy's Secret Wish!", Foop, having become a lawyer, exposes the secret wish Timmy made to freeze the world in Comic-Book Time so he would be able to keep Cosmo and Wanda forever, as part of his latest plan to get rid of Poof, as, since Poof only exists because of a wish Timmy made, he would be undone like all of Timmy's other wishes. Foop succeeds, but it's only afterwards that Jorgen reminded him that, as Poof's Evil Counterpart, he would be undone as well.
  • Enfant Terrible: Foop.
  • Even Evil Has Standards/ Horrifying the Horror: Hard as it sounds, even Foop is terrified of Vicky.
  • Evil Brit: Anti-Cosmo. Accent, posh, outfit, FANGS! He's a textbook example. In fact, many fans have portrayed him as a Vampire.
  • Evil Counterpart: The anti-fairies are the true Evil Counterparts, as they are the Fairies with blue skin, pointy ears, and fangs, and taken further with Foop, who is cube-shaped.
  • Evil Genius: Deliberately to contrast his good counterpart, Anti-Cosmo is an evil genius who typically leads the fairies in their evil schemes, despite him being the youngest anti-fairy before Foop came along.
  • Evil Laugh: An inevitable villain cliche.
  • Evil Twin: There's one Anti-Fairy for every Fairy.

HP: Sanderson, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful new thirty-seven year plan.

A race of creatures who run everything like a business. Like the anti-fairies, they scheme to conquer the universe, but while the anti-fairies want to overrun it with bad luck, they wish to make everything boring. HP (Head Pixie) is the only pixie distinguishable from the lower workers. He is accompanied by his assistant Sanderson. All are voiced by Ben Stein, with the singing voices of HP and Sanderson being done by Method Man and Redman respectively.

  • Affably Evil: HP is fairly polite, he just wants to force every living creature to be ultra orderly.
  • Always Lawful Evil: In contrast to the Anti-Fairies, the Pixies want everything to be run in an orderly fashion.
  • Big Bad: Of "School's Out: The Musical!"
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: H.P., with Anti-Cosmo, in "Fairly Oddbaby" and "The Fairly Oddlympics".

    Princess Mandie
"It's Man-DIE! And no one leaves me at the altar! NOBODY!"

Mark's forced fiancee, she's determined to marry the Yugopotamian prince, whether he wants it or not. She's drop dead gorgeous by human standards, but since Yugopotamians has the opposites standards of humans they find her repulsive. Voiced by Tara Strong.

    The Darkness and the Eliminators 

"Timmy Turner..."

The villain of the "Wishology" trilogy, the Darkness is an ancient being that the fairies defeated thousands of years ago. Now he's returned with an army of robots known as the Eliminators. All are voiced by S. Scott Bullock, with the exception of the Lead Eliminator, who is instead voiced by Gary Sturgis.

  • Big Bad: At first, until it's proven that the Darkness was not evil after all.
    • As the Lead Eliminator who transforms into the Destructinator is the true Big Bad.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It is revealed that all the things the Darkness does is the result of everyone attacking him first.
  • Expy: Most initial viewers of the Trilogy would've recognized The Darkness as this to Galactus from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which was still fresh in public consciousness at the time.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood
  • Healing Factor: The Elminators are able to repair themselves from a great deal of damage, including a few that were melted.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Noticeably more frightening than most other villains, but not as much as The Destructinator.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: The Darkness uses one in "Wishology" Part III.
  • Mega Manning: The Eliminators (or at the very least, the Lead Eliminator) can suck anything into their mouths and copy it. This is how the Lead Eliminator undergoes a One-Winged Angel transformation into the Destructinator after eating an entire army's worth of weaponry launched into him.
  • Mooks: The Eliminators.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Subverted. The Darkness' rampage was only the result of it being attacked whenever it tries to make contact with a civilization. Unlike his former second-in-command The Destructinator who willing to obliterate the Earth to kill the Darkness and Timmy at the same time.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Two eliminators wear pink shirts.
  • Planet Eater: The Darkness is pretty much a living Black Hole that can eat entire planets, stars, you name it.
  • Shout-Out: The Eliminators are an obvious reference to the Terminator. Their introduction in "Wishology" Part I essentially recreates the T-1000's introduction in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • Heel–Face Turn
  • Stalker with a Crush: All his actions in "Wishology" Part II and III are to capture Timmy and keep him forever, since he was the first creature to put something nice into him (i.e. light).
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Subverted.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Everything he does is in retaliation for people attacking him because he looked evil.

    The Destructinator 
The power-crazed leader of the Eliminators who is truly evil, unlike the Darkness.

  • Big Bad: He turns out to be real threat to the universe.
  • Big "NO!": The Destructinator gets one after Timmy presses the detonator button that sets off all the bombs in the Earth...which he'd just absorbed.
  • Cool Shades: The Lead Eliminator.
  • The Dragon: To the Darkness.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: The Lead Eliminator (later known as The Destructinator).
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The Destructinator is destroyed when Timmy tricks him into absorbing the weapons he'd planted into the Earth to destroy the Darkness, then reveals he'd stolen the detonator and uses it to set them off and kill him.
  • Killed Off for Real: He is the first and only major villain to die in the entire series.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The Destructinator is pretty serious and frightening himself. He is by far the darkest and most evil villain of the entire franchise, as he has no redeeming qualities or comical traits.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: The Destructinator plays this straight though in the final part, as he is willing to obliterate the Earth to kill both the Darkness and Timmy and remake the universe in his own image.]]
  • One-Winged Angel: The Lead Eliminator to The Destructinator.
  • The Starscream: The Lead Eliminator, after deciding the Darkness' obsession with Timmy was getting in the way. While he never overthrows it, he does upgrade himself into the Destructinator and becomes the true Big Bad.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: The Lead Eliminator is noticeably more competent than his comrades.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show

    Ms. Sunshine/Doombringer 
A substitute teacher who replaces Crocker in the episode "No Substitute For Crazy". At first she acts nice and sweet, quickly winning the favor of the students and causing Timmy to wish for her to be their permanent teacher. No sooner than this wish is granted, however, she reveals her true colors as yet another fairy hunter. Unlike Crocker, she is much more competent at the job. She is last seen being carried away by a car but vows to return.

    Hugh J. Magnate Jr. 

A larger-than-life oil tycoon who is the Big Bad of the first live-action movie. He comes to Dimmsdale to tear down the city's local park and build an oil well/hotel over it, which Tootie greatly opposes. When Timmy and the fairies foil his plan, he teams up with Mr. Crocker to capture the fairies and use them to fuel his own maniacal ambition. Portrayed by Steven Weber.

  • Freudian Excuse: His evil lair is "colorful" because he didn't have a childhood because his father made him work as a kid and didn't allow him to have friends.


How well does it match the trope?
