* A Meta example for Clarence C. Nash, who not only created Donald's inimitable voice, but was eventually able to do it in ''eight'' different languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, and Japanese).

Added DiffLines:

** "Reginella's return" has Donald reuniting with the alien queen by beating two thieves trying to steal the package she was carrying. Double the awesome because he did not realize it was Reginella until he ''already'' scared them off: he just heard a girl calling for help and jumped to the rescue, implying he would have done it for anyone.


Added DiffLines:

*** And once again, Donald reaches Pacificus thanks to uncle Scrooge, who as soon as he hears Reginella's name provides the nephew a vehicle for the rescue.

* In "Donald and Reginella's Wedding" Donald is summoned to the planet Pacificus to prevent his LoveInterest [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe Reginella's wedding to the Mighty Bingo]] and free her people from slavery. [[OneManArmy All he needs to do it is a double-barreled shotgun, plenty of salt shells, and a powerful boombox]]:
** Donald arrives just in time to crash the wedding-and shoot Bingo in the ass, ''twice''. He then casually routs the soldiers that try and stop him from escaping with Reginella.
** After getting the pain to manageable levels Bingo leads ''[[ZergRush his entire army]]'' to defeat our hero. They may have only middle-ages technology, but there's thousands of them, too many for Donald and a shotgun... [[GenreSavvy And he knew, so he came prepared]]: the boombox plays the meaningfully-titled song "The Torment of the Miller", so devastating that the army is stopped dead in its tracks, and after that eight shells are enough to ''rout the entire force'' and get them to surrender.
** Donald's terms of surrender are even more awesome: knowing that Bingo and his men had left their homeworld and lived by sacking other worlds because they were too lazy to work, he had them melt their weapons and armor into agricoltural tools and sent back home with them and plenty of seed, and now they will have to work for a living... Or else he'll come and finish them off.

* From the Reginella Saga:
**
In "Donald and Reginella's Wedding" Donald is summoned to the planet Pacificus to prevent his LoveInterest [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe Reginella's wedding to the Mighty Bingo]] and free her people from slavery. [[OneManArmy All he needs to do it is a double-barreled shotgun, plenty of salt shells, and a powerful boombox]]:

[[GenreSavvy And he knew, so he came prepared]]: the boombox plays the meaningfully-titled song "The Torment of the Miller", so devastating that the army is stopped dead in its tracks, and after that eight shells are enough to ''rout the entire force'' and get them to surrender.
** *** Donald's terms of surrender are even more awesome: knowing that Bingo and his men had left their homeworld and lived by sacking other worlds because they were too lazy to work, he had them melt their weapons and armor into agricoltural tools and sent back home with them and plenty of seed, and now they will have to work for a living... Or else he'll come and finish them off.
** In "Reginella and the Terran Threat", Reginella is desperate after the unnamed billionaire managed to neutralize the Pacificus' psychic disapproval powers... Then Donald shows up, and [[AwesomenessIsAForce just that convinces Reginella they'll neutralize him]].
*** Just the fact Donald was the ''HopeBringer''.
*** How Donald arrived on Pacificus: the billionaire was organizing trips to Pacificus on a luxury spaceship, with every voyage costing 20,000 dollars-that Donald didn't have, so he went to Scrooge and ''asked him a loan''. And when Scrooge threatened to shoot him with a ''cannon'' for it, he simply told him why he needed the money. Scrooge, recognizing what was a good reason even for him, ''[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming gave]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming him the money, plus another thousand dollars for the tips on the spaceship and to buy Reginella a good gift]].
** "Donald, Reginella and the Terrible Vampirione":
*** When Reginella calls for his help, Donald arrives... With a SpaceFighter, and mops the floor with Vampirione's {{Mooks}} when they try to intercept him.
*** Once again, Donald as the HopeBringer.
*** [[GenreSavvy Realizing that invading Pacificus with Donald around would end badly]], Vampirione manages to use the laws of a nearby planet Mogol, whose territory both Pacificus and his own PlanetSpaceship have just entered, to force a CombatByChampion for Pacificus' riches, and chooses the sword. Donald being Donald, he accepts the challenge (he was actually planning to [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty shoot Vampirione before the Mogolians could arrive]], but they showed up before he could grab the shotgun)-and matches blow for blow his opponent, an accomplished swordfighter. Even better, Donald complains that the sword is not his weapon-meaning that he would have mopped the floor with Vampirione had he been more used to the sword.
** In "Reginella and the Queen Outside Time" Donald discovers that Reginella is now trapped somewhere in the past without memory, and if he went to rescue her he'd risk losing his memory too before he could save her. Donald goes in anyway, loses his memory, and ''completes the mission just as he remembers''.
*** Donald saving Pacificus once again by [[spoiler:letting the First Cerusic break the psychic link between Reginella and him, thus canceling the reason for her desperate moods that were causing floods]].

* In the story "The Golden Christmas Tree", a witch - stereotypical warts, broom and all - lures away and kidnaps the triplets, and Donald follows their trail despite not having the advantages the witch gave the kids (like transforming into a log to let them cross a chasm, which Donald just throws a gigantic snowball across to make a bridge). Upon reaching her cabin, he assaults it ferociously, even after she proves she's a powerful RealityWarper who could kill him in a second and probably doesn't only out of some sadistic mischievous streak. After some quite impressive antics (including picking up an entire tree trunk to use as a battering ram) he cleverly enters through the chimney, gives a BondOneLiner, and uses ''her own broom'', which is the source of her power, to defeat her while yelling at his nephews to run as fast as they can.
* In ''The Ghost of the Grotto'', Dewey is kidnapped by a mysterious armored man, who may or may not be a ghost. That doesn't stop Donald from trying to free him. After he and the remaining nephews defeat a giant octopus, (thanks to Huey's idea of feeding the octopus a chunk of meat filled with chili pepper), Donald goes of to battle the armored man, who previously attacked them with rifles, swords and a canon. Donald still defeats the kidnapper, although the duck is armed with... let's say less conventional weapons:
-->'''Louie''': Going to battle an armored man with a squirt gun and a mouse! Do you suppose Unca' Donald's in his right mind?
-->'''Huey''': I hope not! His sensible ideas never work!
* In ''Vacation Time'', Donald and the nephews goes camping and spends most of the time getting into comical camping situation. Especially Donald who spends most of the story obsessed with getting a great photograph of a majestic buck deer. But when a forest fire breaks out due to a careless camper, who steals the Ducks car, Donald takes charge and saves himself and the nephews by burying them alive (a real life last-ditch survival tactic of smokejumpers).
