Character appearances[]

(Numbers indicate order of appearance.)

N Team Forces of Chaos Others

Characters with the same number first appeared in the same shot.


  • This was the second episode to use "Shakedown" as its featured song, yet it uses a slower version of the song.
  • Wombatman makes a cameo in this episode during the baseball scene.
  • This is the second episode where The Forces of Chaos are the main threat in the episode, but Mother Brain is not the main antagonist. King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard provide most of the conflict throughout the episode. The first being Mega Trouble for Megaland.



  • After making his "unbeatable" wish, Kevin jumps really high without using his Power Pad, even though his dialogue clearly states he is using it.
  • Simon's nose is wished straighter, but suddenly back to normal with no wish to undo it.



  • In the last episode, Princess Lana understands baseball because of baseball games on the NES. Now all of the sudden, she doesn't know what basketball is? Come on - there's even a basketball court in the Palace of Power!
  • Lana says with a magic lamp she could free Videoland. So why doesn't she? Why does the N Team act like such idiots once they get the lamp?
    • Why does Kevin not wish for all his grandparents to come back to life?
  • If King Hippo and Eggplant Wizard already have the magic lamp, can't they just wish to rule all of the other worlds? Why do they have to conquer each of them one by one? Was Eggplant Wizard trying to impress the two sexy tomatoes that he wished into existence?
  • Why is Mega Man wearing pajamas? He's a robot!
  • This is the second time King Hippo attempts a falsetto voice. It's even higher pitched than the falsetto he uses in the pilot episode and makes him sound like Mayor Squaresly, who first appears in Season 2. (Ironically enough, both King Hippo and Mayor Squaresly were voiced by Garry Chalk.)
    • If this were possible, why would King Hippo not constantly use the falsetto voice? It makes him sound incredibly sexy. This does not make sense.
