** 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.]]

[[AC:[[WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp The Movie]]]]
* [[Awesome/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp See here.]]

[[AC:Scrooge [=McDuck=]]]
* His battle with the phony Masked Mallard. The WeaponOfChoice? Canes!
* Fighting and capturing the invisible villain in "Hotel Strangeduck."
* The ending of "Robot Robbers" is awesome if only because of the sudden twist in its Aesop. In 9 out of 10 cases where the villain mocks the hero by calling him "[[GoodIsImpotent too soft]]," the hero learns that may be true, but that's what makes him the good guy. This time, after Flintheart Glomgold tells Scrooge he's gotten soft and afraid to take risks, Scrooge proves GoodIsNotNice when Glomgold needs to hire [=McDuck=] Construction to rebuild the city his [[AIIsACrapshoot giant robots destroyed]]:

to:

[[AC:[[WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp [[AC: Treasure of the Golden Suns]]
* 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.
* One for Mrs. Beakley is in "Cold Ducks". After seeing a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant woolly walrus]] smash a museum, she proceeds to shout "Hey lardo!" and use a scarf as a bullfighting cape.

[[AC: Armstrong]]
* While minor, Launchpad loop-the-looping and making Armstrong's missiles crash into each other.

[[AC: [[Recap/DuckTalesS1E4WhereNoDuckHasGoneBefore Where No Duck Has Gone Before]]]]
* Launchpad gets a few of these. Huey, Dewey, Louie, Doofus, and Launchpad have gotten stuck in outer space with an egotistical actor who plays a hero in a sci-fi show [[AndYouThoughtItWasAGame and thinks he's still filming an episode]]. When the actor realizes they've ''actually'' been captured by aliens, he escapes back to Earth, abandoning the others. Launchpad then shows the boys what ''real'' heroes do, and saves the day.

[[AC: [[Recap/DuckTalesS1E5NothingToFear Nothing to Fear]]]]

The Movie]]]]
ending, where Scrooge and the nephews face their fears to make them disappear.

[[AC: Much Ado About Scrooge]]
* [[Awesome/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp See here.]]

[[AC:Scrooge [=McDuck=]]]
Louie. Scrooge, the nephews and the descendants of the Drakespeare Players at Great Written find out William Drakespeare's last play, "[=MacDuck=]," is a disgrace to the [=McDuck=] name. Filler Brushbill, super-duper door-to-door salesman, though, had been promised ''half the play's proceeds'' for his help in getting the play, and on that verdict finds out ''he'll get nothing'' for his efforts from Scrooge. [[VillainousBreakdown In a panic,]] [[FaceHeelTurn he takes "[=MacDuck=]"]] in an effort to get ''something'' out of it. Louie, though, manages to talk him out of ruining his reputation as "[[TheDreaded the super-duper]] [[TravelingSalesman door-to-door salesman]]" with a play so awful ''nobody would ever buy anything from him ever again!'' Filler comes to his senses long enough to agree, admitting Louie "did a great sales job" on him. Given Louie himself thought of doing door-to-door sales one day, Filler later gives Louie an endorsement at the end.

[[AC: Dime Enough for Luck]]
* His battle Magica hypnotizing Gladstone Gander to use his [[BornLucky luck]] to steal Scrooge's NumberOneDime ''and'' cursing him with '''bad luck''' afterwards! Not only is it incredibly satisfying to see Gladstone suffer for once, but the fact that she was able to pull this off ''at all'' makes Magica possibly the only force in the Scrooge [=McDuck=] Universe that's stronger than Gladstone's infamous luck! Creator/CarlBarks would have loved this episode, seeing one of his favorite characters take down one of his least favorite. Oh, and "''Bad'' luck, old chum!"

[[AC: Home Sweet Homer]]
* The triplets defeating Circe.

[[AC: Duck to the Future]]
* Magica trapping Scrooge in the future, finally getting his NumberOneDime, and taking over the world in the alternate future (starting a trend for [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Disney villainnesses]]?)

[[AC: Down and Out in Duckburg]]
* Scrooge is suffocating on the bottom the ocean. When warned that the waters are infested with sharks, Mrs. Beakley's only reply is "Now they're Beakley-infested waters!" [[NeverMessWithGranny Then she dives off the boat and saves Scrooge almost single-handedly]].

[[AC: Duckworth's Revolt]]
* Duckworth revolting against the plant aliens. Particularly when he threatened to have Huey, Dewey, and Louie ''kill'' the aliens.
-->'''Duckworth:''' "Are you aware that these lads could destroy every plant on this spaceship
with the phony Masked Mallard. The WeaponOfChoice? Canes!
push of a few buttons?"

[[AC: Pearl of Wisdom]]
* Fighting and capturing Huey ''destroys a torpedo using only a marble''.

[[AC: Once Upon a Dime]]
* When Scrooge told
the invisible villain boys about his rise to fortune, he recounted a time, just after arriving in "Hotel Strangeduck."
the U.S., where he was arrested for wearing a skirt in public ([[RunningGag "It's a kilt!"]]). When it came to trial, not only was he found not guilty, but the ''arresting officer'' was sentenced to 30 days in a skirt for offending the Judge's own Scottish pride with such a prejudiced charge.

[[AC: Robot Robbers]]

* The ending of "Robot Robbers" is awesome if only because of the sudden twist in its Aesop. In 9 out of 10 cases where the villain mocks the hero by calling him "[[GoodIsImpotent too soft]]," the hero learns that may be true, but that's what makes him the good guy. This time, after Flintheart Glomgold tells Scrooge he's gotten soft and afraid to take risks, Scrooge proves GoodIsNotNice when Glomgold needs to hire [=McDuck=] Construction to rebuild the city his [[AIIsACrapshoot giant robots destroyed]]:



* The one time this version of Scrooge really resembles the {{Badass}} comics' version is when he's wrongfully sent to prison in "Duckman of Aquatraz": 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..."

to:


[[AC: Back Out in the Outback]]

* Webby has one when she, with the help of the animals she's befriended, captures the criminals who have been responsible for the willy wisp attacks.
--->'''Scrooge''': Webby, how did you ever manage to capture such desperate criminals?
--->'''Webby''': Teamwork, [[HonoraryUncle uncle Scrooge]], teamwork!

[[AC: The Money Vanishes]]

* Another awesome nephew-related moment: the last five minutes "The Money Vanishes." The Beagle Boys steal Gyro's furniture mover ray and use it to steal Scrooge's entire fortune. When the trio discovers that the Beagles are behind the theft, the crooks try zapping them with the ray and sending them off the face of the Earth. But then thanks to a goof up the nephews wind up getting the ray and the Beagle Boys realize that they are 100% [[OhCrap royally screwed]].
--->'''Dewey''': Come on, Beagle Boys! Take my ray!

[[AC: Back to the Klondike]]

* Glittering Goldie's BigDamnHeroes moment in "Back to the Klondike," where she charges the villain with her shotgun blasting... while [[BearsAreBadNews riding a bear]]! Scrooge's {{Plucky Girl}}friend is just made of pure awesome.

[[AC: Master of the Djinni]]
* It's pretty commendable that Scrooge and Glomgold were willing to [[{{Determinator}} race back to Duckburg from a barren desert]] (along with a detour into the past) to claim ownership of the magic lamp. Perhaps most glaring in this monologue where Scrooge's starts to wonder about his chances.
-->'''Scrooge:''' ''*limps, gasping in exhaustion*'' I hope the boys are alright...If I don't make it...at least they'll be well taken care of... ''*gasp*'' B- but if Glomgold gets those three wishes, he won't leave them with a dime. [[PapaWolf I've GOT to make it!!!]] ''*marches on determined as ever*''

[[AC: Hero for Hire]]

* The entire second half is one giant CMOA for Launchpad. The Beagle Boys use him as an unknowing patsy in all their robberies so he'll take the blame, and then they take Doofus hostage so he won't try and clear things up with the police. Launchpad then proceeds to [[FakingTheDead fake his own death]], locate the Beagle Boys' house, and saves Doofus while recovering the stolen money.

[[AC: Maid of the Myth]]
* Mrs. Beakley is pretty much a walking CMOA. Not only does she [[DefiantCaptive stand up her Viking kidnapper]] with all the brashness, determination, and ferocity you could ask for, but when Launchpad, who had been going to lead the team in the race that would determine if they could all leave Valhalla, loses his voice (thanks to the [[GreenEyedMonster jealous queen]]'s [[PoisonedChaliceSwitcheroo doctored water glass meant for Mrs. Beakley]]), ''she'' takes his place to lead the team. And to top it all off, when a rival racer cheats and knocks out a bridge on the racing course, [[PlotTailoredToTheParty she uses her operatic voice]] ([[{{Irony}} the very reason she was kidnapped in the first place]]) [[GlassShatteringSound to bring down an avalanche of ice and snow]], letting her cross.

[[AC: Hotel Strangeduck]]

* Scrooge fighting and capturing the [[InvisibleMonster invisible villain]].

[[AC: Duckman of Aquatraz]]

* The one time this version of Scrooge really resembles the {{Badass}} comics' version is when he's wrongfully sent to prison in "Duckman of Aquatraz": 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..."




[[AC: The Uncrashable Hindentanic]]
* Launchpad is told to crash the [[UsefulNotes/{{Hindenburg}} Hinden]][[UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic tanic]], and the crashing in itself was pretty awesome since the blimp was on fire and in the middle of a meteor shower.

[[AC: Til Nephews Do Us Part]]
* Glittering Goldie [[WeddingSmashers crashing]] Scrooge's wedding. She tears into Duckburg, shotgun in hands, to break up Scrooge's marriage to a GoldDigger. And you thought [[WesternAnimation/WallE EVE]] was too TriggerHappy...

[[AC: Super [=DuckTales=]]]

* Considering he has no education and is from such a poor and deprived background he had to live with his mother in a rundown trailer in the worst neighbourhood in [=DuckBurg=], Fenton managing to become the accountant to the ''world's richest duck'' is pretty freakin' impressive when you think about it.
* Fenton Crackshell managed to take down Gyro's robotic guard despite having lost the instructions for the Gizmosuit the night before.
* Fenton gets another by defeating the Master Electronic Leader in their counting contest in "Super [=DuckTales=]".
-->"Sorry, M.E.L.! These are ''nuts'', not bolts! [[LogicBomb Trick question! You lose!]]"
** 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.

[[AC: My Mother the Psychic]]
* Fenton [=/=] Gizmoduck chasing down Glomgold and the Beagle Boys by ''redirecting an electric magnet he was stuck to as it spun through the air like a giant frisbee.''

[[AC: The Masked Mallard]]
* Scrooge's battle with the phony Masked Mallard. The WeaponOfChoice? Canes!

[[AC: Ducky Mountain High]]
* Goldie's BatmanGambit: Scrooge found gold trees growing on her land adjacent to his and "tricked her" into trading their land because he thought the gold deposit underneath the trees giving them their color must be there, too. It's not until he starts digging that he finds out what Goldie knew all along -- he now owns the land with the gold trees, and she now owns the land with the gold! And she rubs it in Scrooge's face while flirting with him!
-->'''Scrooge:''' Why you poker-face prospector! You knew about the trees and the gold all along!
-->'''Goldie:''' Well, who do you think sent you that gold stationary to lure you up here? I've been working on a way to get your land for months. Now I've got a gold deposit, and you've got a lousy bunch of tree stumps.
-->'''Scrooge:''' Oooh... Goldie, you're a dirty deal-maker!
-->'''Goldie:''' I learned from the master. ''*SmoochOfVictory*''

[[AC: Attack of the Metal Mites]]
* Fenton successfully stopping the metal mite invasion, even after losing his Gizmosuit.

[[AC: [[Recap/DuckTalesTheGoldenGoose The Golden Goose]]]]
* 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, and nowhere to land, Scrooge actually orders Launchpad to crash their plane, which he gladly does...only to execute a perfect, flawless landing for one of the only times in the entire series.

[[AC:Others]]



* Early in the 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 Scrooge. That alone is good evidence on how much of a BadassGrandpa Scrooge is.
* In a flashback episode where Scrooge told the boys about his rise to fortune, he recounted a time, just after arriving in the U.S., where he was arrested for wearing a skirt in public ([[RunningGag "It's a kilt!"]]). When it came to trial, not only was he found not guilty, but the ''arresting officer'' was sentenced to 30 days in a skirt for offending the Judge's own Scottish pride with such a prejudiced charge.
