I remember reading a fanfic where the author went through all the math trying to define Irken years, days, everything and it’s really amazing. Some of it is made up but most has some kind of focus in canon. It’s called In Short Supply by ckret2
YES. That fanfic was amazing. Which is weird. Zim/Purple is some that I don’t really ship and never thought I would tolerate. But it’s written pretty dang well. I loved how the author went into detail like the Irken years.
gosh thanks- I really need that info for a fic!
I know for a fact that Zim’s exact age is never mentioned in the show, so don’t worry too much about that for fanfic!
You can get away with whatever you want in that aspect since most theories or headcanon or fanon at this point. :]

I don’t remember which episode unfortunately, but on the DVD commentary Jhonen said he was ~154. It’s been a long time since I watched it so I can’t be more specific than that :(

//I’ve always just assumed one Irken year is equivilent to 10 human years. When Tak said 50 years, she meant human years. I’m not sure if the Foodening’s 20 years is in Irken years, Foodcourtian years, or human years.
Yes. I’ve heard this for many years too. I don’t remember ever hearing it specifically in the commentary, but I could be wrong. I’ve never seen evidence that it’s the truth. It’s not that I don’t want to believe it, this rumor had to start somewhere after all! I just find it fascinating that no one can remember exactly where it comes from.
Canon Information About Zim’s Age
What canon information is there about Zim’s age?
- In NanoZim, Zim says that he’s been flying ships since before Dib was born.
- In Tak: The Hideous New Girl, Tak’s Invader training on Devastis happened 50 years ago. Zim was there as well.
Can anyone remember any more instances in the show or does anyone have any cited quotes from creators talking about Zim’s age? I know that there is a widespread belief that Jhonen has said that Zim is 116 or 150 or something, but I’ve never actually been able to find real evidence of the quote.
(Of course all of this infor also begs questions of differences between Earth years and Irken years…)

Thank you! That’s probably my fault. I haven’t exactly been active for the past year. :/
