    Roy "Irene" Raskin is one of the main characters of the critically panned Paramount+ TV series The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder, a reboot to The Fairly OddParents.

    He was portrayed by Tyler Wladis.

    Why He Made The Reboot Terrible

    1. For starters, his lack of originality extends to the point that he removes the charm and relatability that made the original main character, Timmy Turner from seasons 1-8, endearing. Timmy was relatable due to his imperfect but genuine nature, his struggles, and the heartfelt lessons learned through his adventures with fairy godparents. Roy, in contrast, may be perceived as a character without the same depth or relatable qualities, basically amp up Timmy's problems from seasons 9-10 and make him overly optimistic, stripping away the emotional connection that fans had with the show through Timmy's character.
    2. Much like the infamous character, Chloe, he's also forgettable and one-dimensional due to his unremarkable personality as it fails to distinguish him within the vibrant and diverse Fairly Odd Parents universe, as his whole personality is just being happy, not to mention like Chloe, Roy is popular, confident, and "charming".
      • So in a way, he mostly exists in The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder just so that he can give the audience somebody to root for that the original show did not have.
      • In fact, he basically exists just so that he and Viv can reflect on Cosmo and Wanda's future after Timmy grows up and leaves for college.
    3. His whole character falls short in terms of adding anything meaningful to the overall storyline. Unlike Timmy, who played pivotal roles in shaping the narrative, Roy lacks a compelling purpose or impact on the plot. This leads to dissatisfaction, as new fans to fairly odd parents franchise could question the necessity of introducing a character who doesn't significantly contribute to the depth or progression of the Fairly Odd Parents storyline.
      • The fact that he has no important role leaves you feeling that Roy's inclusion was more of a superficial addition rather than an integral part of the series.
    4. Roy's inclusion is yet another misguided attempt to inject new life into the franchise that the creator himself Butch Hartman intentionally and permanently killed, ultimately backfiring and accelerating the decline in popularity and viewer satisfaction with The Fairly Odd Parents.
      • It doesn't help that he had no purpose in The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder other than filler in the show before it hit cancellation, and he's basically only added as an attempt to modernize the series, showing the character was only introduced for the sake of change.
    5. On top of that, you could technically considering him a Gary-stu, and a Naggedy Andy because of all of "Da Rules" he breaks.
    6. Unlike other characters in the Fairly Odd Parents universe who seamlessly integrated humor and language, Roy's overuse of slang is completely out of touch, especially since he has a mobile fan section literally called "Roy's boys".
      • This attempt to infuse modern language into his dialogue can be seen as a superficial effort to connect with contemporary audiences, ultimately detracting from the natural and witty humor that characterized the show's earlier success. The unsuccessful execution of slang usage contributes to the overall dissatisfaction with Roy's character among viewers.
      • In the Forbidden Phrase, he suggests to Vivian that they should make a dancing video, which is a reference to YouTube and Tiktok (While YouTube has been around for a while, it has been critically acclaimed, while Tiktok is completely terrible).
      • And finally, the most obvious being his infamous (and generic) catchphrase "Lets go!" was very annoying and laughable.
    7. In Fairies Away! He thinks that wishes are better spent on himself, and wanting to have a day where everyone celebrates him, while this can be understandable, especially for a kid his age, it also shows that he can be selfish.
    8. Unlike Timmy (seasons 1-8 anyway), he doesn't learn his lesson sometimes, and he doesn't always listen to his stepsister Vivian.
      • Not to mention also like Timmy from seasons 9-10, he can be spoiled and ask for out of the ordinary wishes, and complains when Cosmo and Wanda don't want to do the wish if it's that bad.
      • He can also have stupid wishes, and he can be dumb at times too, an example of this is in "King Roydas", when he wishes for everything he touches turns to gold, and not to mention when Vivian tells him no, he doesn't listen.
    9. Even worse, much like his sister Vivian, he also could technically be considered a scrappy, appearing in almost every episode despite some episodes having main plots based on Vivian or other characters.
    10. Overall, he is yet another clone of Timmy Turner from seasons 9-10, similar to how other famous and good Nickelodeon characters who have been ruined and then they have poor man's versions, like SpongeBob having Coconut Fred,which predicted seasons 6-8.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Tyler Wladis did a good job portraying him, and he definitely seemed like he had fun with playing Roy, which can lead to some good moments here and there.
    2. Despite being an unlikable character, at least he is admittedly friendly and cares about his family and friends, and this is saying a lot.
      • Not for nothing, but for a jock his age, he's pretty humble.
