I think ‘Marabounta’ was one of my favorite episodes of Code Lyoko because it showed that there is, in fact, some degree of respect between Team Lyoko and XANA. 'Marabounta’ confirmed that despite being an evil son of a bitch, XANA had an honor code too. He didn’t just help protect Aelita–he helped protect them all

I don’t know about the rest of the fandom but I just thought that was really neat.
