Codename: Kids Next Door — Operation: V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E. was a console game based on Codename: Kids Next Door developed by High Voltage Software released on PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, and Xbox.

The game allows you to play as all five members of Sector V, with the main objective being to recapture escaped Kids Next Door villains. Near the end of the game, it turns out that Sector V have unknowingly been helping carry out the current scheme of Father, which involves merging the captured villains into a giant monster to destroy the Kids Next Door.


Operation: V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E. provides examples of:

  • 100% Completion: 100% completion is accomplished by collecting at least 100 Rainbow Monkeys in every level and finding every Sooper Secret.
  • Big Bad: Father is behind all the game's conflict, having arranged for the various villains to be recaptured by Sector V and sent to the Moonbase prison simply so he can merge them together into a giant monster that will destroy them.
  • Boss Banter: Most of the boss fights have the villain talk to the player during the fight.
  • Co-Dragons: Father's scheme is assisted by both the Delightful Children from Down the Lane and Cree Lincoln.
  • Continuity Nod: During the first mission involving Count Spankulot, Numbuh Four bemoans on how the other members of Sector V have become spank-happy vampires again (even though the episode "Operation: L.O.C.K.D.O.W.N." had Numbuh Four become a spank-happy vampire and Numbuh Five avoid the transformation).

  • Fighting Your Friend: Numbuh Four at one point has to fight the other members of Sector V after they've been turned into spank-happy vampires. Numbuh Two, Numbuh Three, and Numbuh Five are faced as mini-bosses, with Numbuh One being the main boss of the level.
  • Final Boss: The final boss fight is against the Amalgamation, who is the Toiletnator, Grandma Stuffum, Count Spankulot, Knightbrace, the Common Cold, and Stickybeard merged into one giant monster.
  • Here We Go Again!: The game ends with the revelation that the entire story was just a video game Sector V was playing, then the exact beginning of the story repeats exactly, including the Toiletnator's invasion of the Treehouse.
  • Humongous Mecha: The final boss fight has Sector V summon the T.R.E.E.H.E.M.O.T.H. (Transformable Really Enormous Emergency Humongodroid Entirely Made Outta Treehouse Headquarters) to take out the Amalgamation.

  • Licensed Game: This is a video game based on a cartoon show.
  • Potty Emergency: One part of the story has Numbuh Four needing to use the bathroom. When he finally gains access to a bathroom, a blackout occurs and his friends become spank-happy vampires. Upon exiting the bathroom to set things right, Numbuh Four complains that he's ruined his shoes.
  • Shout-Out: The boss fight against the Delightful Children from Down the Lane features several Star Wars references, such as the Delightful Children's space station resembling the Death Star and Numbuh Three referencing Admiral Ackbar's quote of "It's a trap".
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Numbuh Three is somehow able to understand fireflies, which helps her thwart Knightbrace's scheme in using fireflies to make Bug-Brite toothpaste.
  • The Unfought: Father and Cree are never fought as bosses in spite of their importance to the game's plot.
  • Unlockable Content: The game has scores of unlockable content, such as concept art, videos, and alternate skins for the playable characters, most of which can be unlocked by beating the game once.
  • Warm-Up Boss: As another example of his Butt-Monkey status, the Toiletnator serves as the boss of the game's tutorial level.
