** Launchpad preventing the ''Phoenix'' from being smashed to bits by the asteroid thicket. In the middle of a completely random field of floating rocks, driving a completely new vehicle for the first time, and terrified by the sudden realization that they're in actual danger, he nonetheless manages to bring the ship "right through without a scratch."



** And then to add to that, he manages to singlehandedly take on and defeat the planet's entire inhabitants while Scrooge and Launchpad escape, recover the Money Bin, and steal their ship to rendezvous with the pilot and their mutual employer.
* The multi-parter is finished off with Fenton doing the most {{BadAss}} thing of all: finally standing up to his mother, who's been treating him like dirt ever since we met her, and getting some much deserved respect from her.

to:

** This scene gets mocked a lot because Fenton beats him by winning a counting contest, but if you think about it, it's not so much CripplingOverspecialization as it sounds. Fenton figured out what would cause MEL to break down. The counting contest was a means to an end to get him wound up enough to answer without paying attention and make a silly mistake, which would "prove" to him that he wasn't the smartest being in the galaxy, causing him to BSOD. Not a bad case of TalkingTheMonsterToDeath.

* The one time this version of Scrooge really resembles the {{Badass}} comics' version is when he's wrongfully sent to prison: The other prisoners challenge him to an arm wrestling match, and he effortlessly beats each one in a second or two, one after another. "Next... next... next..."
** Well, if he's strong enough to [[PooledFunds bathe in gold coins]] without getting injured...
*** One of them actually asks how he's so strong and he says "from lifting money bags."

* In the [[GrandFinale series finale]], Scrooge, Launchpad, and Dijon have to return the Golden Goose to a temple, lest it's curse consume the entire planet, and turn everyone and everything to gold. With time running out, Launchpad points out there's nowhere to land, to which Scrooge replies: "Who said anything about ''landing''? Just do what you do best, Launchpad: '''''CRASH!'''''", which he gladly does...only to execute a perfect, flawless landing for one of the only times in the entire series.

* El Capitan points his shotgun at Scrooge, and Scrooge's response was to give El Capitan quite a glare despite the fact that El Capitan is pressing his shotgun at him. That alone is good evidence on how much of a BadassGrandpa Scrooge is.

** When the escaping heroes are confronted by Buvolvan, who [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] Courage, Launchpad aims the "gun" the got from the robot at him and [[IveGotAnXAndImNotAfraidToUseIt warns him that he'll use it.]] When Buvolvan taunts him that it's only a "food synthesizer", Launchpad responds, "It'll have to do!" and gets him in the face with a blast of custard that would have been a BoomHeadshot if it had been an actual gun.
** When Launchpad finally makes his way up to the cockpit, he tells Doofus that he doesn't know if he can fly the Kronk ship. Doofus, [[HeroWorshipper of course]], responds that, yes, he can -- and turns out to be absolutely right, as Launchpad [[ImprobablePilotingSkills controls the ship as effortlessly as if he's been doing it his whole life.]]
