SPOILER WARNING OF DOOM: This section or article may contain spoilers!
To once again throw off his classmates' suspicion that he is an alien, Zim makes it look like Poonchy, another classmate, is the real Irken Invader and that Zim is just a decoy. He takes the idea a step further to make Dib believe that Poonchy really is an alien by planting Irken technology into Poonchy's room. Zim manages to fool Dib by disguising himself as a member of the "Swollen Meatball" conspiracy theory group. Zim watches the proceedings from overhead in his ship, but smugness becomes horror when he realizes that Poonchy really has one of his superweapons, and hastily stops Poonchy before he wreaks destruction on the planet with his "new video game". After saving everyone, Dib goes to jail and the cops eat Poonchy's dinner.

Facts of Doom
- The day before the crew of Invader Zim planned to animate Invader Poonchy and Nubs of Doom, Nickelodeon cancelled the show, thus becoming pointless to make the episode.
- If Nickelodeon cancelled the series on January 18, 2002 instead of January 17, 2002, Invader Poonchy and Nubs of Doom would have been completed episodes.
