When Ron wants to avoid his devilishly warped Cousin Shaun at a wedding, Kim subtly suggests that Ron take her as a friendly date. Both of them find the idea 'awkweird' and back down.

Drakken meanwhile attempts to use a Hench Co. device to make himself even more evil. The plan fails when Kim and Ron break the machine, gradually turning Ron into an eccentric super villain and Drakken into a goody-baking sweetie.

Plot Summary



Evil Plot

Dr. Drakken's: Use the Attitudinator to make himself more evil.

Evil Ron's: Use a mega-weather generator to make the world hand over its supply of Nacos.

Personal Storyline

While on a routine mission, Ron complains to Kim that he has to go to his cousin Reuben's wedding and interact with his evil 7-year-old Cousin Shaun. Later, while watching Agony County, Ron gets it into his head that girls like bad boys, and attempts to become a misunderstood rebel, which doesn't fool any of the girls at school.

He and Kim infiltrate a super-villain convention at the Tri-City Convention Center undercover as "Zorpox the Conqueror" and "Sheela of the Leopard People," two villains from Wade's old comic books. Dr. Drakken and Shego are also at the convention, leading Shego and Kim to fight, as usual. While Drakken is trying out a Hench Co. machine called The Attitudinator, which supposedly makes its user more evil, Ron knocks into him. By doing so he, accidentally, breaks it, causing all of Drakken's evil to be transferred into him while Drakken retains his good side.

Back at his lair, Drakken's "new and improved" evil plans turn out to be nothing but cute doodles, like an invention for making chocolate milk, much to Shego's annoyance. Meanwhile, Ron is devising surprisingly and increasingly nasty things to do to his 7-year-old tormentor. Shego crashes Reuben's wedding (literally), and, recognizing that Ron is now much more evil and ingenious than Drakken, she absconds with him back to the lair, leaving her former boss with Kim.
Bad Boy 8

The Attitudinator turning Ron and Drakken back to their normal selves.

Realizing that the Attitudinator is the cause of Ron's transformation, Kim convinces the (now good) Drakken to repair it, and together they storm Zorpox's lair, where the new villain has built a death ray which he threatens to use unless the world hands over its naco supply to him.

After a pitched battle, Kim manages to turn Ron back to normal, although it was really Drakken who returns Ron to normal, by placing the Attitudinator on Ron's head. Ron is restored to his goofy, innocent self while Drakken goes back to being a blue-skinned villain. Kim and Ron escape Drakken's lair and return to Cousin Reuben's wedding, where Ron is finally allowed to sit at the adults' table as Kim accompanies him there as a friend.

Memorable Quotes

Kim: Ugh, Ron! What's your damage?

Ron: Oh, I see now. I see how it is. You turn against me! Can't handle the bad boy, huh?

Mr. Barkin: (appears, grabbing Ron by the collar) No, but I can.

Ron (as Zorpox): All will fear me and tremble beneath my storms, and then hand over to me the world's supply of... NACOS! BOOYAHAHAHAHAH!

Shego: Nacos?!?

Kim: Figures. How obvious. Go Drakken!

Mr. Barkin: No food fight goes unpunished on my watch, Stoppable! It's one month of detention.

Ron: Boo-yah (laughs evilly)!

Mr. Barkin: (quietly) Oh, oh, that's, that's funny to you food-fighter? Fine, lets make it (loudy and madly) TWO MONTHS!!

Team Possible's Transportation


  • The show Agony County, seems to be a parody of the teen drama The O.C., an abbreviation for Orange County.
    • The character Charity, who speaks to her friend Danny is voiced by Grey Delisle, who also voices Sam Manson from Danny Phantom. Sam is best friends and eventually the romance interest of the show's protagonist, Danny Fenton.


  • At the beginning of the adventure, Kim and Ron are wearing squirrel suits. They will again wear the squirrel suits in a mission in the episode And the Mole Rat Will Be CGI.
  • Ron, as Zorpox, is more competent than Drakken and kept everyone, including Shego, guessing as to his real intentions. His evil self (and the Attitudinator) would briefly resurface in the fourth season episode "Stop Team Go".
  • This is the only time Kim dresses up in an identity-hiding outfit as Sheena of the Leopard People.
  • This is the only time you ever see Shego, other than her good self in "Stop Team Go", be very deferential to anyone since Evil Ron makes sure that "sidekicks should know their place".
  • Dr. Drakken refers to chocolate milk as "coco moo", to the annoyance of Shego. In "Stop Team Go", the now good Shego uses the word herself.
  • Evil Ron also kept Shego in line so she couldn't come up with any sarcastic remarks. No one has been able to do that.
  • Duff Killigan is visible in line entering the villain expo and was seen in the convention.
  • This is the first episode where Shego showed a fear of something: When Evil Ron tried to dump her into a shark tank. Mainly, because she threatened to attack him for calling her "Just the Hired Help".
  • After being zapped by The Attitudinator Drakken is heard singing the Oh Boyz song Quit Playing Games With My Head[1] while working on an invention.
  • Kim and Wade reinforce that Ron is indeed micro-chipped as has been mentioned on several other occasions[2][3].
  • Kim wears her blue dress from her first date with Josh[4] and the Mad Dog Ball[5] to the wedding.


  • Ron wears the Zorpox costume while he is plotting in Drakken's lair, but when he and Kim swing away from said lair, he is in his mission clothes (hard to catch; you see them only for a split second as they swing by).
  • While good Drakken is repairing the Attitudinator, there are a few seconds where he turns back to blue again at around 19:47, before returning to his "normal" color in the next shot.
  • While Shego was saying to Drakken, after he was back to normal: "Did you see his mega-weather generator?!", her right-hand thumb looks like it's on the left side of her right hand.
  • When Kim and Ron are talking at the side of the Try City Convention Centre, Duff Killigan walks past multiple times.
