** After her attempts at legally barring Scrooge from taking her strawberries fail, Brigitta manages to turn his victory in a PyrrhicVictory by simply telling everyone where they grew. By the time Scrooge shows up to collect them, not only his competition has taken every single strawberry, Scrooge's fleet ''accidentally killed the species'' by filling the area with the polluting exhausts of the ships. And she knew.
** As he finds out, Scrooge faints and gets ill from the shock. What does Brigitta do? Why, she acts as his personal nurse, both to enjoy the time with the duck she still loves... And to prove once again he ''needs her'.

** A corollary: in later stories, Scrooge tends to ''panic'' whenever he finds out the competition that has just appeared from nowhere is Brigitta in WomanScorned mode, as he now knows well that the only thing keeping her from being a rival more formidable than even Rockerduck and Glomgold is that ''she usually can't be bothered to try''.

* "Brigitta's Strawberries" is one of the early stories with Brigitta and starts like the other ones before, with Brigitta trying to woo Scrooge and him rejecting her... Then quickly turns in a WhamEpisode when his latest rejection and then not searching for her when she decides to give him the silent treatment prompt her to go into WomanScorned mentality:
** First thing she does is to call in a passing Jubal Pomp and tell him they're going to give Scrooge a lesson... And Jubal, who first debuted by ''kidnapping'' Brigitta, puts himself in her service, as he ''knows'' Brigitta can do it.
** Before opening her business, Brigitta sends Jubal Pomp to spread the rumor she has some important secret just to prove he needs her. And when Scrooge falls for it and tries to spy on her, he finds himself in a cage and forced to ''beg'' for [[SupremeChef her awesome cooking]]. And this is just the warning shot.
** After recovering from her little prank, Scrooge continues with his latest project, selling strawberry cakes, and completes his factory and secures the best strawberries in the world, but feels like something's wrong. In the meantime Brigitta has built her own factory and launched a ship, [[InexplicablyAwesome with no previous hint she had that much money or the credit to loan it]], ''lets'' Scrooge corner the market... And then she starts selling her own strawberry cakes, ''stealing every single one of Scrooge's customers''. And nothing Scrooge tries can stop her, as the strawberries in her cakes are just that much better.
** Trying to find out where she gets her strawberries, Scrooge tries to follow her ship. She finds out, ignores him for a while, and then just disappears. And comes back to Duckburg with tons of strawberries shortly after Scrooge has returned, making him realize she never got far away.
** The next time Brigitta sets sail Scrooge follows her again with a submarine, and discovers two things: Brigitta's ship is actually a sub itself... And she's making her cakes from a wild strawberry variety that grows ''on the bottom of the ocean''. And she had known about it for who knows how long.

\n** Their most elaborate and successful scheme is in "The Lentils of Babylon". After discovering [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashurbanipal king Ashurbanipal]] personal stash (he ''really'' liked them), and unable to profit from the legendary recipe because the lentils won't grow more, they export them to Duckburg, then can and sell them to a certain African country, who then sell them to their neighbour country, and so on until the Beagle Boys buy them back... And, due the complicated exchange between the local currencies, the transation ended up giving them ''ten times the expense of exporting and canning them''. Rinse and repeat, and perfectly legal, with them [[GenreSavvy canning them with linen oil to make sure nobody in Duckburg will eat them]].
*** Then Scrooge eats some and likes them so much he plans to make a whole economic empire out of it and almost buys out the Beagle Boys, with their attempts at stopping him failing due his skills with advertising. What do they do? They sell him their last share in exchange for ''his entire fortune and economic empire''. And when Scrooge finds out everything they don't even gloat, they just give him a place to stay and a document where they state they'll give him everything back if he can make a single lentil grow into a plant.
*** What they did when Scrooge actually ''succeeded'' to grow a lentil into a plant (by accident): [[GracefulLoser they kept their word and left]].

* Every time the Beagle Boys succeed, even temporarily, is one for them:
** In one occasion they allied with Magica, who gave them superpowers. They had Scrooge on the ropes, and while two ended up defeating themselves through sheer stupidity, the third was about to single-handedly ''demolish the Money Bin'' before Scrooge took advantage of his gluttony to trick him into giving up on the powers...
** A Paperinik story had our hero accidentally go to the future. Without him around, the Beagle Boys had Duckburg almost robbed blind, even with the Nephews stepping in for their uncle after discovering he was Paperinik.
** At one point, after one failure too many, they decided to not attack the Money Bin anymore and targeted Duckburg's other billionaires. A week later, they were rich, casually waltzing through the defenses of the other billionaires because, compared to Scrooge's, they were nothing.
*** Turned against them by Scrooge, who first sells his defenses to the other billionaires, so the Beagle Boys, realizing the situation, launch an attack to the Money Bin... And Scrooge captures them with improvisation and ''cleaning supplies''. That he proceeds to sell to the other billionaires when they demand to have the new super defenses too.

* In "Wintertime Wager" Donald had lost his home to Gladstone due a stupid dare. How does Donald get the house back? Easy: ''Daisy'' gets it back for him, by reminding Gladstone of his own stupid dare that he'd have to complete or give Donald his house back, and when Gladstone could not drink a gallon of lemon juice in a hour...

* In "Reginella and the Terran Threat", Reginella originally planned to deal with said threat, a vacation village for vips that could ruin Pacificus' way of life and pollute the planet, by having Donald become its director and manipulate it in the desired direction, but then she learned the very presence of so many Earthlings was causing an illness that could drive the Pacificans to extinction... And so, having to chase them off, [[LetsGetDangerous she finally cut loose with her psychic powers]], [[HeroicSacrifice fully expecting to die in the process]], and a single psychic blast was sufficient to have ''every single Terran except for Donald (who wasn't targeted) too terrified to remain for even a single minute more''. What's more, ''she survives''. Disfigured, but survives, and is still strong enough to personally give Donald a handerchief embroidered with the next date of Pacificus' arrival to Earth before having him go too.

* In "Donald and Reginella's Wedding" the planet Pacificus was occupied by the armies of the Mighty Bingo and enslaved the inhabitants who, due their pacifism, are unable to resist his middle ages-level forces. The only hope is to bring there Donald, but the only one who could ''physically'' go and survive in the outside time would be Reginella herself, who is held prisoner by Bingo [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe who want to marry her]]... And she and her subjects find a way around that:
** The plan is to choose the strongest among the young people of Pacificus and have ''everyone'' transfer some of their energy to allow him to go and bring back Donald, but Bingo won't allow them to assemble for the choosing... Cue Reginella casually and effortlessly manipulating the tyrant, with such ease she even calls him an idiot in her mind.
** The chosen one is about to be captured before he can jump on the sideral perissiodactyl (a pterodactyl that can fly through space), and, while stronger, can't fight back... [[StopHittingYourself But nothing forbids him from suddenly stopping with an extended fist and let his would-be captor run into it nose-first]].
** Having recently dreamed about Reginella's trouble, Donald is ready with a double-barreled shotgun, lots of salt shells, and a mega-boombox. [[OneManArmy And that's all he needs to deal with Bingo's armies]]:
*** First he crashes the wedding by shooting Bingo right in the ass, ''twice'', frees Reginella, and deals with the immediate chase with a few shots.
*** After a while Bingo comes with his entire army... Cue the boombox playing a song meaningfully titled "Torment of the Grinder". A few notes and salt shells later, Bingo and his army surrender.
*** Donald's terms of surrender are awesome by themselves: he has Bingo and his men melt their weapons and armor into agricoltural tools and sends them back to the home they left because they were too lazy to work, and now they will have to work for a living... Or Donald ''will'' come for them.

* In the Italian story "Zio Paperone e la Meravigliosa Vecchia Ciabatta" (Uncle Scrooge and the Wonderful Old Slipper) Magica finds the recipe for a potion that will make an object irresistible to anyone who sees it except the owner before adding the potion. What does she do with it? Why, she uses it on an old slipper that she sells to Scrooge for ''his entire fortune and economic empire''. She doesn't even need to use the NumberOneDime for that amulet anymore...
** After Donald and the nephews catch on what's happening and destroy the slipper, Scrooge's counterattack is devastating: they use one of Scrooge's old planes (whose custodians still apparently don't know of the transfer of property) to go to Naples, find the last of the potion... And Scrooge uses it on a ''button'', [[HoistByHisOwnPetard resulting in Magica giving back everything in exchange for the button and then getting in a fight with Ratface for it]].

* Scrooge's most awesome moment of brilliance has got to be the end of CarlBarks' last story "Horsing Around With History." When Donald and the boys deduce that the Beagle Boys are inside the Trojan Horse, they rush into Scrooge's bin to warn him... only to find that Scrooge was GenreSavvy enough to figure out something was up even before they did with all their clues and already has the Beagle Boys captured!
* In the CarlBarks one-shot ''Somethin' Fishy Here'' (later remade as ''Something Fishy''), a prank from Donald has him believe ''fish'' will now be used as money and all his cash is now worthless. As soon as he's recovered from the shock, uncle Scrooge rebuilds a fortune in fish [[SelfMadeMan all by himself]], ''in a single day''.
