Recommissioning Device

The Recommissioning Module displayed at the KND Seriously Cool Museum of Artifacts and Stuff.

The Recommissioning Module was a piece of 2x4 Technology created by Numbuh 0, presumably during the beginning of the 7th Age of the KND. Once activated by inserting DNA from an active KND Operative, the Module could reawaken the memories of any former Kids Next Door operative or non-members of the Kids Next Door. It also can record video messages and has a secret mechanism that will set the module to break into permanent disrepair if it's used again.

Thought to be broken beyond repair in the Great Junior High Rebellion of 1999, it was kept on display in the Kids Next Door Seriously Cool Museum of Artifacts and Stuff. In reality, however, it had been secretly repaired by Numbuh 86 to recommission the members of Sector V after the incident with Numbuh 274 in Operation: E.N.D..

In Operation: Z.E.R.O., it was stolen from the museum by Father and used to restore the personality, memories, and powers of the Ultimate Evil, Grandfather. After the ensuing chaos at the Convention Center, the Recommissioning Module was given to Numbuh 1 by Numbuh 101, who used it (along with the KNDNA Tracker) to locate and recommission Numbuh 0, who turned out to be none other than his own father. Later, Nigel and his dad used the device on the Delightful Children from Down the Lane to restore the personalities of Sector Z, but the transformation was only temporary as the Delightfulization to Sector Z was permanent.

After Grandfather was defeated once and for all, Numbuh 1 tried to use the Recommissioning Module on his father once again (as both Numbuh 0 and Grandfather were both decomissioned when Grandfather was defeated). However, it burst into pieces, revealing a message left by Monty explaining that, knowing his son would try to bring back Numbuh 0 again, he had broken the Recommissioning Module himself, as he has responsibilities only an adult can properly do: namely, being a good father to his son. Numbuh 1 accepted this fate, but it is unknown if the Recommissioning Module was recovered and put on display once again.

It is never explained why the Recommissioning Module was able to resurrect Grandfather, since he obviously was not a KND Operative. It is possible that Numbuh 0 defeated his father with a Decommissioning device to erase his memories and powers, or that Grandfather was a KND Operative in a previous era of the organization prior to becoming the global tyrant seen in the cartoon.

It is also unknown if this module is the only one in existence, as strongly implied in Operation: Z.E.R.O., or, as both Numbuh Zero and Numbuh 999 were recommissioned after the module's destruction, there are more.
