  • Trivia

    • The dodgeball temple is in fact a public school- P.S. 182 (the head monk said to the Dodgeball Wizard "What brings you to P.S. 182?).

    • Numbuh 1 can't pilot a ship such as S.C.A.M.P.E.R. or any other big ship with his other teammates.

    • Numbuh 2 said that leader's can't fly their planes. Numbuh 1 has flown R.O.A.D.S.T.A.R and F.L.I.R.E.P.L.A.C.E while he was leader.

  • Quotes

    • Head Monk (to the Dodgeball Wizard): What brings you to P.S. 182?

    • Numbuh Four: No more pickle herrin for me mommy i've got a tummy ache. uuuuhhh (passes out)

    • Numbuh 4: Numbuh 1! He has evapomorated...(starts crying like Numbuh 3 sometimes does)
      Numbuh 3: And he is the only one who knows the code...(starts crying)

    • Numbuh 86: The new leader of Sector V is.. Numbuh 3!
      Numbuh 3: Me...?Okay, the first mission is.. get Numbuh 1 back to normal, so that he can tell us the code!

    • Numbuh 2: Hey there Numbuh 1! Huh...nice leaves yo-you are wearing there..uh..very ju-jungly!

    • Numbuh 2: Absotively Posilutely!

    • Numbuh 4: Its time for you to get the crud out of the dodge...ball place...
      Numbuh 2: No more lines for you!

    • Numbuh 4: This time its personal...
      Numbuh 2: How can it be personal, You've never even met the guy!
      Numbuh 4: I know.. I've always wanted to say that!

    • Numbuh 4: I don't understand....
      Numbuh 2: I know... its horrible!
      Numbuh 4: No, I mean I don't understand.. what's that say?

    • Numbuh 2: And where exactly do you get these facts?
      Numbuh 4: I make 'em..

  • Notes

    • In Operation S.L.U.M.B.E.R., Numbuh 86 admits to being a obsessive Rainbow Monkeys fan, just like Numbuh Three. This is probably why, in Operation F.E.R.A.L., she sent the Sector V on a mission whose ultimate goal was to win a Rainbow Monkeys key chain. You'll notice that Numbuh Three was the only one in Sector V who seemed to know about the key chain.

    • First appearance of Dodgeball Wizard.

    • Operative debuts: Numbuh 74.239, Numbuh 71.562, Numbuh 275.

    • It turns out that the strongest Dodgeball player is not Numbuh 4, but Numbuh 4's baby brother Joey

    • Dodgeball Wizard was mentioned in a K-Zone magazine years ago when the show was starting it's first season. But never appeared until now.

    • KND vehicle used in "Operation F.E.R.A.L.": E.L.E.P.H.I.N.D.E.R. Enormous Lumbering Electric Pachyderm Helps Instigate Nailbitingly Daring Emergency Rescues.

    • Another hint that Numbuh 4 is Australian is that a Joey is a baby kangaroo and a Wallabee is a relative of a kangaroo. Both animals live exclusively in Australia.

    • D.O.D.G.E.B.A.L.L. focuses on Numbuh 4's brother Joey, while F.E.R.A.L. is a Numbuh 1 episode.

    • Villains: The Dodgeball Wizard and the Delightful Children from Down the Lane.

    • Another tip for why numbuh four is Australian is when he goes in his house you can see on the welcome mat in the doorway is the australian phrase "G'Day".

    • D.O.D.G.E.B.A.L.L stands for Dangerous Old Dude's Game Excellently Beats All Little Losers.

    • F.E.R.A.L stands for Friends Extract Really Ape-ifed Leader.

    • Credits: Two nerds are arguing and they ask Numbuh 275 who is right, but he walks on with saying anything, so they keep arguing.

    • Second time that Numbuh 4's dodgeball skills were shown. The first time was in F.O.U.N.T.A.I.N.

    • Now everyone but Numbuh 2 has been temporary leader. Numbuh 4 unofficially in C.A.N.N.O.N, Numbuh 5 in G.R.O.W.U.P, Lizzie also unofficially in L.E.A.D.E.R, and now Numbuh 3.

    • Numbuhs 1, 3, and 5 don't appear in "Operation D.O.D.G.E.B.A.L.L." It was the first time since "Operation T.H.E.-S.H.O.G.U.N."

    • Numbuh4's little brother Joey is the best dogeball player.

    • Numbuh 3 becomes the temporary new leader.

    • Numbuh 2 and 5 don't want to be team leader. Numbuh 2 doesn't because he can't fly his aircrafts. Numbuh 5's reason is because last time she was a team leader, numbuh 1 lost his hair forever (as mentioned in "Operation: F.O.U.N.T.A.I.N.").

    • First appearance of Numbuh 4's mom's face, but her eyes aren't seen.

    • If you look closely, when Joey threw the iron dodge ball at The Dodgeball wizard and hit the anteanna above him, if you look back of him, you can see Both Numbuh 4s parents faces!

  • Allusions

    • Operation F.E.R.A.L. is similar to the Ed, Edd n Eddy episode "Laugh Ed Laugh" where Eddy went cuckoo and brainless like Nigel. They both snap back to normal similary when they got angry.

    • Apeified numbuh 1: Tarzan

      Numbuh 1 became the king of the rainbow monkeys. This is similar to the story of Tarzan, who grew up raised by gorillas and became the gorilla's king.

    • The Dodgeball Wizard stops the dodgeballs in the air in the beginning of the episode is exactly how Neo stopped the bullets in the air near the end of the first Matrix movie.

    • Dodgeball Wizard: Giant Dodgeball

      The gigantic dodgeball that the Dodgeball Wizard creates very much resembles Goku's Spirit Bomb from Dragonball Z.

    • Dodgeball Wizard: Fight with Monk

      When the Dodgeball Wizard and Monk struggle to strike the other with the dodgeball, the scene mirrors Star Wars Episode III-- Revenge of the Sith where Yoda and Palpatine struggle to defeat the other with collected Force Lightning.

    • Dodgeball: Shaolin Soccer
      The way the Dodgeball Wizard flung the dodgeballs was similar to the way that they played soccer in the moive Shaolin Soccer.

    • Dodgeball wizard: When he faces the millions of dodgballs flying at him, it refrences the movie HERO starring Jet Li... where the main character was faced with millions of arrows flying at him.

    • Dodgeball Wizard- This name sounds similar to "Pinball wizard", a popular song made by the Band "The Who"
