* ''Return to Xanadu'' features Donald saving not only his nephews and uncle, but the entire population of the valley of Xanadu when he heroicly risks his life by first sawing through a metal gate and then opening a sluice gate that was causing the valley to flood in the first place. Notably, it originally took the entire Duck family to close that gate so they could get into the valley. The second time around Donald opens it on his own.

** The two stories where Paperinik deals with the Trasformista are full of awesome for everyone involved:
*** "Trasformista" is Italian for MasterOfDisguise... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin And the Trasformista is incredibly good at disguises]], even able to create LatexPerfection from ''bread crumbs''. Needless to say, the guy committed a large number of capers with ease thanks to this.
*** How Paperinik arrested him the first time: as Donald he told his family he had to be out of town so he could surveil a city-wide event as Paperinik, while he watched with binoculars he noticed ''Donald Duck'', and at this point he swooped in, captured the fake Donald, took off his mask to expose the Trasformista's identity, and left.
*** How did the Trasformista break out? As said above, he created three masks with bread crumbs, and used them intelligently: first he wore the mask of a prison guard so one of his colleagues, seeing him there and apparently tied up after the guard had just left at the end of his turn, would reach the obvious conclusion and come in; then he knocked out the guard, tied him up, and put on him a mask with his face; finally he wore the guard's mask and clothes, waited the end of the guard's turn, and calmly walked out.
*** Near the end of the second story the Trasformista knocks Paperinik out, [[DoNotAdjustYourSet hacks the television signal]], and unmasks Paperinik on live television... Then a second Paperinik enters and exposes himself as Gladstone, a third Paperinik comes in and reveals he's Fethry, and at this point the unmasked Donald, who has freed himself, leads his cousins in jumping and beating him up. End result: the Trasformista is arrested again, and this time he even looks an idiot who Paperinik could get captured by sending there Donald, Gladstone and Fethry without moving from his hideout.

* Italian stories created Paperinik, a superhero persona for Donald. How is this awesome? Well, in the first story he acted as an avenger of himself, and the very first thing he did was to steal Scrooge's mattress ''while he slept on it''. After graduating from avenger of himself to superhero, he routinely took on what seemed to be impossible odds, and ''won every single time'' (just to make an example: one of his most frequent adversaries is Spectrus, a stage magician/GentlemanThief who can hypnotize everyone with a single look in the eyes, yet Paperinik can fight and defeat him with ''onion juice''). Then, there's ''PaperinikNewAdventures''...

*** Paperinik's status as TheDreaded is such that nowadays the RunningGag is that of [[FriendlyEnemy Paperinik saluting criminals he just caught in the act]] and them [[KnowWhenToFoldEm complaining they would have got away had he not shown up while they either get tied up or just go to the closest police station to give themselves in]]. [[AwesomenessIsAForce He doesn't even have to fight most of them anymore]]...

*** Actually, Donald was manipulated by Pete because although Donald first pranked Mickey by making him slip, Mickey had to take his so-called prank UpToEleven by not just showing an embarrassing black and white screen test of Donald (even though unlike Mickey and the rest of his gang, Donald actually made his debut in color!), but even called his [[WithFriendsLikeThese supposed best friend]] an [[TheUglyDuckling "Ugly Duckling!"]] Given that in a cartoon in that episode, Mickey was the type of person to trick his years long girlfriend, Minnie, into thinking he was about to ''propose'' to her! ... Donald's suspicion was sort of justified.

*** The threat with a fake gun is a RunningGag, usually in the form of a super soaker loaded with a soft drink that he'll shoot in his own mouth after he doesn't need to threaten the victim anymore (the victim is ''never'' amused). In one occasion he was feeling particularly sadistic, he used ''two'' of these guns on Scrooge, the first with the drink sold as a paralyzing fluid to stop him from escaping and the other sold as a ''disintegrator'', and Scrooge was so terrified he fell for ''both''. Then, when he was done, Paperinik ''made him drink from the disintegrator''.

Then there's the time he stung Rockerduck with a needle, told him he had injected into him a serum that made people obey all orders (that Rockerduck had two thugs commission to Gyro, so he knew it existed) and made him act like a monkey, jump on his own chandelier and eat the hat calling it a banana...

** In one story the Beagle Boys had managed to steal his car and gadgets, and tried to use them for heists. First heist: Paperinik wrecks the car's flying ability and recovers the loot. Second heist: he wrecks ''the car'' and recovers the loot ''and'' the wrecked car. Third heist, in which the Beagle Boys use his paralyzer gun and his [[InASingleBound spring boots for high jumps]]: he tricks the BB with the boots into jumping in the sewers, where he knocks himself out by hitting the ceiling with the rebound of the springs, then gleefully announces the other Beagle Boys that his gun is ''single shot'' and they have no reloads, and when they, furious for being ridiculed this way, jump on him to beat him to a pulp, he ''dodges and let them beat each other into unconsciousness'' while he calls the police and recovers the rest of his gadgets. And all of this using only improvised equipment like a foot-propelled scooter (when he wrecked the car's flying ability), a rope (when he wrecked the car) and a movable advertising poster (to trick the BB into jumping in the sewers).
