* TookALevelInBadass: Going from private pilot to superhero's sidekick might seem like a step up, but in ''Darkwing Duck'', Launchpad displays a lot less of an ActionHero side than he did in ''Duck Tales''.

* AesopAmnesia: How many times did Darkwing learn to put aside his pride and get serious/ask for help/play well with others/etc.? Probably about once an episode.



* BigEgoHiddenDepths: "Inside Binkie's Brain" shows that while Darkwing Duck's 'inner hero' is fairly small, his ego is enormous. But this is a guy who puts his own life in danger for those he loves on a regular basis, adopted a little girl who desperately needed a father who understood her, and he even puts up with his royally annoying neighbors, Quackerware and all. "Life, the Negaverse, and Everything" shows how vitally important his role as father is to him.



* NiceGuy: While Launchpad has things which set him off, he's generally quite easygoing, patient, and friendly.



* StalkerWithoutACrush: During "Darkly Dawns the Duck". From the moment he crashes through Launchpad's ceiling during an opening chase with Taurus Bulba, Darkwing cannot get rid of the pilot. Launchpad isn't in love with Darkwing; he's just a fanboy who wants to make a good impression on his favorite real-life superhero. Darkwing ultimately finds this to be a positive thing as Launchpad proves to be the only source of help he has, given that he's alienated everybody else.



* BenevolentBoss: A bit absent-minded and eccentric, he's an effective leader and treats everyone who works for him fairly.

to:

* BenevolentBoss: A Absent-minded, a bit absent-minded and eccentric, he's on the eccentric side, but an effective leader and treats everyone who works for him fairly. fair mission control to Darkwing and the agents of S.H.U.S.H., generous with praise and sternly serious about getting results on protecting the world from F.O.W.L.

* ManicPixieDreamGuy: He is revealed to have played this role for a young alien princess named Tia in "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E57UFFoe U.F. Foe]]." Growing up, Tia was so focused on learning what she needed to know that she never slowed down and relaxed. The easygoing Launchpad "gave [her] the gift of laughter" and she fell in love with him partially on that basis. It's even deconstructed a bit, given that Launchpad points out that fun isn't the only important component of a relationship.



* YouGotSpunk: Very spirited for her age, to the point where villains like Taurus Bulba and Negaduck have to comment on it.

* RealMenWearPink: Literally. Drake Mallard's typical outfit is a green sweater vest and pink collared shirt, and he wears a purple costume (with the cape being pink on the inside) as Darkwing. He's also a loving parent to his daughter, whom he raises together with his sidekick/Heterosexual Life Partner Launchpad McQuack.
