* 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''.

*** In ''Paperinik e il Demone del Gioco'', Rockerduck was defeating Scrooge by transforming him in a GamblingAddict (an idea ripped off Creator/FyodorDostoevsky's ''The Gambler'') in his own casino. Paperinik intervened... And while he cured Scrooge with a shock therapy, Gladstone, disguised as Scrooge by Paperinik, went to the casino and won ''everything'' in spite of Rockerduck's players cheating. What's better, [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Rockerduck had anticipated the scenario and had made Gladstone win a three month vacation (in fact he had had the licence for years, but had never used it because he knew what would happen if Gladstone decided to gamble)]], but when Paperinik called him Gladstone came back, won that crapload of money, and gave it all to charity.

* The Italian four-parter story ''Zio Paperone e l'Ultima Avventura'' (''Uncle Scrooge and the Last Adventure'') in its entirety. The premise? Rockerduck, the Beagle Boys, Magica De Spell and '''Freakin' Flintheart Glomgold''' do a VillainTeamUp and ''defeat Scrooge''. [[spoiler:Magica and the BB exchange targets, so the former makes Scrooge's money vanish, while the latter easily steal the Number One Dime; after such a massive defeat Scrooge's quotations plummet, which allows Flintheart and Rockerduck to buy his entire economical empire. And then they act as benevolent tycoons to gather the masses' sympathies while planning to ''erase the Money Bin and the entire Killmotor Hill'', building a super-technological waste disposal center in their place, '''''just to erase the memory of Scrooges from the hearts of Duckburg's inhabitants''''']]. '''DAMN.'''

** Back at the Count's castle Fantomius looks at the portrait of his ancestor, the only way the Mad Duke could have passed the gold to the ancient count,, and, after noticing the the Duke stands before Three Towers' Castle and the writing “Ars Est Celare Artem”, “Art Is in Hiding Art”, deduces the gold is in the castle. That's when Howard Drake, descendant of Francis Drake, appears, gives a MotiveRant of how he wanted to recover the gold and [[SinsOfTheFathers make the descendants of the Mad Duke and his friend pay for making a fool of his ancestor]] (hence the frame-up and trying to implicate lord Quackett by releasing the model on his doorstep) and thanks Fantomius for the pointer… Except Fantomius lied: he had noticed someone was spying on them and made that claim to send them in the wrong place… Before calling Pinko on him. Bad guy dealt with without even dirtying his hands on him.

** In the present lord Quackett finds out that a model was kidnapped with the gem-encrusted gown he was targeting, and the current Count of Bad Luck is arrested when the model, after being freed, identifies a room in the impoverished Count's castle as the place where she had been held... Except lord Quackett quickly realizes it was a frame-up [[AwesomenessByAnalysis by simply asking how long it had been between she had been held in the castle and being released at lord Quackett's doorstep]]: about half an hour, when it takes over one hour to go from Villa Rose to the Count's castle.

That's also enough to realize where she had been held: the castle of the Mad Duke himself.
** At the castle, Fantomius and Dolly are searching for the room where the model had been held, and find two new doors. Which one is the right one? [[TakeAThirdOption The third]], hidden and opened by the only undusted brick.
** After the third door they find an exact copy of the Count's lounge and one of Francis Drake's journals, that reveal exactly what was his beef with Richard Quackett: joining his crew and then staying in New Albion ''with a large part of the loot destined to the Queen''. ''Trying'' to steal from that loot and expecting to get away with it was something Drake called madness, hence him calling Richard Quackett the Mad Duke… Except [[CrazyAwesome the Mad Duke did it, used the money to build himself three castles, buy the lands near Drake's outpost of Fort Drakeborough, give some of it to charity, and still had enough to live in luxury]]. And when Drake came for revenge ''he couldn't find the gold''. Part of which he sneakily passed to his friend the Count of Bad Luck… [[GoneHorriblyRight Who couldn't realize he had it because it was hidden too well]].

* "The Treasure of Francis Drake" is ''made'' of awesome:
** The opening: back in 1585, ''Francis Drake'' coming to New Albion, the village placed where one day Duckburg would be founded, to take revenge on Richard Quackett, the Mad Duke of Duckburg (an old character of Carl Barks [[ArcWelding that this series has made in one of Fantomius' ancestors]]) for some unspecified crime... And when he's informed, ''the Mad Duke doesn't care'': he knew he'd come and was ready, and takes the time to thank his friend the Count of Bad Luck for warning him by giving him a portrait of himself.
*** The Duke's home: a middle-age like castle built on ''the West Coast of the United States''. That he built just because. And he had built ''two'' other castles: Three Towers' Castle and the Castle of Dismal Valley.
** In the present lord Quackett finds out that a model was kidnapped with the gem-encrusted gown he was targeting, and the current Count of Bad Luck is arrested when the model, after being freed, identifies a room in the impoverished Count's castle as the place where she had been held...
