Kids Next Door Z is an anime spinoff from Codename: Kids Next Door. In this, the villain characters of the original
This is Not a Song, It's a Sandwich!!! (CN Style)

An example of the show's style. (This was just a random thing, but it was the best example I had.)

show now have more destructive and commanding intentions, and instead of adult tyranny, the kids fight tyranny period. Also, the age of decommisioning is changed from 13 to 18 (in fact, most of the characters are around 13).

  • Kids Next Door Z is similar to PowerPuff Girls Z because the are both anime spinoffs of American Cartoon Network shows. In PowerPuff Girls Z! Toon Mega Stars (another creation of mine), Numbuh 2 and Numbuh 5 are characters alongside the PPG.
    • However, KNDZ airs in America and has both the same American and Japanese VAs as the original show.
  • Although the villains are more destructive and commanding instead of enforcing "adult tyranny" (and just enforcing more vilainous tyranny, such as destroying or trying to take over), they still have their original themes.
