    "How come you never listen to me?!?"

    Dukey, [Episode: Johnny's Got a Wart]

    Jonathan Avalon "Johnny" Test is the main protagonist of the American-Canadian TV series the same name. He is a mischievous boy known for his love of anything he considers awesome. He is the youngest child and only son of Hugh and Lila Test and brother of Susan and Mary Test. He can live any kid's dream, only to find that some dreams aren't worth living. He is typically with his best friend Dukey, his genetically altered dog. He also redeems coupons to his sisters in exchange for assisting them in their daily problems.

    While his character was good in the first three seasons of the series and the 2021 reboot, he was flanderized in seasons 4-6 to the point of being hated, but eventually redeemed himself in the reboot. This article will only focus on his character in the latter seasons.

    He is voiced by James Arnold Taylor.

    "Woah, Didn't See That Coming!" Qualities

    1. In the beginning of the series and even the revival, he was written as a rebellious, yet kind goodhearted boy who helped others, cared about his family, and even had mature moments of learning lessons, and having remorse for his actions whenever they were bad. But in these seasons, he's written as and has been flanderized into being a problematic, troublesome kid who now constantly messes up his sisters' inventions for his self-serving purposes, causing trouble for himself and the whole city, basically becoming a Canadian version of Bart Simpson but without any of the charm or likability Bart had. This happens rarely in the first season (and to an extent in seasons 2 and 3) but is pushed to the limit in these seasons to the point where it starts becoming repetitive.
      • In fact, this right here is why his character is truly hated.
    2. He often refuses to work hard and put any effort into anything.
    3. He gets what he wants through manipulation, deceit, or blackmail; for example, he once manipulated an old lady to get him a video game that he was too young to play.
    4. He has become selfish, disrespectful, immature, gross, and narcissistic for the most part.
    5. He and his family once let a carnivorous plant ravage Porkbelly just to save themselves.
    6. He rarely listens to the good advice that comes mostly from Dukey.
      • On a similar note, in almost every episode of seasons 4-6, by the end he still does not learn his lessons and will continue doing the same thing the next episode or two.
    7. He will sometimes put his family into something that he caused.
    8. He still has an infamous power from his Johnny X persona called "power poots" which is and sounds disgusting.
    9. His voice, while it still sounds great, got annoying in Season 6 as it became higher pitched.
    10. He gets tons of screentime at the cost of other characters such as his sisters, even though he is the titular protagonist. This comes from the fact that almost every episode is centered around him and his antics with every episode having his name in the title. Even though this was a problem identified in past seasons, it was never truly resolved and only became worse.

    "To the Lab!" Qualities

    1. His design is still awesome/well-made, especially when drawn in a different style.
    2. He still loves his family and friends and hates seeing them in danger.
    3. He can be kind, caring, and helpful at times and has his original personality, like when he saves his sisters from trouble he sometimes puts them into, when he is Johnny X, or if he helps clean the messes is makes.
    4. He can be still sympathetic at times. Examples include when his sisters perform dangerous experiments on him, Bumper bullies him, and when his dad takes his punishments too far.
    5. Aside from the infamous "Power Poots" power, his other Johnny X powers are still admittedly quite cool such as his "Hurricane Hands", and "Shape-shifting" powers.
    6. James Arnold Taylor still does a great job at voicing him, despite sounding annoying in Season 6.
    7. He was a much better character in the first three seasons and eventually redeemed himself from flanderization in the 2021 reboot as well as reverting to his character in the first three seasons of the original show.
