  • Timmy Turner is a lonely 10-year-old boy who has a pair of Fairy godparents Cosmo and Wanda. One episode Its a Wishful Life shows how everyones life would have been better..if he not been born a male!
  • Icky Vicky is a teenage babysitter who has a constant Running gag of making Timmys Life miserable. One episodeThe Really Bad Day!" shows that her ancestor was Vicky Khan..a sister of Genghius Khan whom he is afraid of! In a flashback episode The Switch Glitch Timmy becomes a very mean 10 year old babysitter to 5 year old Vicky {which hints that this is the root of Vickys hatred of 10 year old boys}. In the episode Channel Chasers shows her becoming a power mad dictator of the World! Ironically one of her earth slaves is another of Timmy's Tormentors "Crockpot" Crocker!
  • Denzal "Crockpot" Crocker has a constant running gag teacher of Timmys known for giving "F" grades and his insane belief that fairy godparents exist. Ironically he had the same Odd parents [Cosmo an Wanda] when he was a boy, only to lose them because of Timmy Turners interference in the space Time contimium [The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker]. In one typical episode Norm the Genie Crocker acquires a genie in order to trap the Fairly Oddparents-but due to his own stupidty he ends being trapped himself! In the episode [Abra-Catastrophe!] Crocker accidently ingests a fairy muffin which causes him to become a power mad dictator of the World! Ironically one of his earth slaves is another of Timmy's tormentors Icky Vicky!
