So we all know that Sam is the one responsible for Danny’s ghost powers in Memory Blank. But what would’ve happened if Tucker had been in Sam’s place?
Let’s think about this. What would have happened differently?
Tucker has a history of jealousy throughout the series. Even though he plays it cool most of the time, every time a tiny bit of power comes to him, he becomes corrupted by it. Think of his ghostly self in What You Want. Think of his pharoh-self in King Tuck. In WYW, Tucker even steals the name Phantom, because he wants to be Phantom.
If Tucker had been in Sam’s spot in Memory Blank, there would be no more Danny Phantom. We have enough evidence to suggest he would go into the portal himself. Danny would never know. He would get the ghost powers and attention and fame he always wanted. He finally would be able to break way from Danny’s shadow. He’s had ghost powers before, and with his memory still intact, he would know how to use the powers more than the alt-dimension-Danny would.
For Tucker, there would be no reason not to go into the portal.
That’s why Memory Blank had to be Sam. It could only be Sam. Else we might have been looking at a very different series…

I’ve probably earned the right to screw up a few times. I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.
