* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: He can't bare to be parted with his gold. Not even a ''single coin''. Naturally this complicates matters when he hires other villains to assist him.



* HandWave: The key to his immortality is simply shrugged off by stating that he's stayed alive just to find his treasure again.

* HandWave: The key to his immortality is simply shrugged off by stating that he's stayed alive just from stubborn willpower to find his treasure again.



* StarterVillain: He is the fist major antagonist faced in the cartoon.


to:

* SelfDisposingVillain: In each of their face-offs, he actually obtains part of the treasure from Scrooge, only for his maniacal obsession to lead him to pull a VillainBall that costs him everything.
* SuperOCD: His obsession with the lost Treasure of the Golden Sun leans more as this than for actual financial gain.
* StarterVillain: He is the fist first major antagonist faced in the cartoon.

* UndyingLoyalty: Launchpad's loyalty to Scrooge goes above and beyond the call of duty, to the point where he's helped him in some pretty big ways even when Scrooge has lost his fortune and thus isn't Launchpad's boss anymore.

* ClassicalAntiHero: Fenton is extremely good at counting, which is how he became Scrooge's accountant. But he often screws up everything else, and he also is a dork, who has grown up in a trailer park. And when he gets a girlfriend, he becomes painfully hen-pecked. And yet, he's the super hero Gizmoduck, and he also saves the day four times without his Gizmoduck suit!
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Actually a point of drama in some episodes as Fenton fears his suit is the only thing that makes him a hero at all.

This actually becomes a point of drama in some episodes as Fenton fears his suit is the only thing that makes him a hero at all.all. Some episodes in the ''[=DuckTales=]'' series were intended to prove that his heroism is ''not'' solely due to the Gizmosuit.



* RagsToRiches: Subverted. While he does make a really big leap by going from a literal bean-counter to becoming Scrooge's accountant, and again when becoming Gizmoduck (As Scrooge in an uncharacteristic act of generosity gives him a paycheck for each job), it still doesn't exactly pay top dollar.

* ShipTease: With Doofus; though they usually don't interact much, one TimeTravel episode showed them as married adults. The present Webby, however, had different ideas.



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: In the second season. He only showed up in one single non-speaking cameo in one episode and afterwards was never seen or mentioned again -- perhaps because both Launchpad and (to a lesser extent) Huey, Dewey and Louie were moved OutOfFocus in this season, and sice Doofus was mostly there to interact with them, there was no real room for him in the scripts anymore.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Scrooge and the kids let him hang around, but they don't really seem to enjoy his company, being rather quick to insult his ditziness, klutziness, and large appetite. The only person who seems to openly like him is Launchpad.

* UndyingLoyalty: Even when the whole world is picking on him, Doofus believes in Launchpad till the end. In the episode "Merit-Time Adventure", he sticks by him even when Launchpad tries to wave him off so that he won't be hurt when Launchpad inevitably loses his tug-of-war with the "[[MechanicalMonster sea serpent]]".



* HairTriggerTemper: He gets very irritable, as shown with what little patience he has for Dijon.

** NotSoHarmlessVillain: He proved to have a meaner streak than the Genie bargained for however. To avoid him delivering the lamp to [[BigBad Merlock]] he convinces Dijon to steal it for himself, with promises of power and fortune. He takes that offer and wishes for a fortune...namely ''Scrooge's'' fortune, and then smugly arrests him without a dime to his name. It takes an elaborate heist and Merlock's interference to get it back (and Scrooge still had to deal with Merlock after Dijon to do so).

* MusclesAreMeaningless: He's surprisingly strong considering his skinny build. This is especially demonstrated in one of the early scenes of ''Treasure of the Lost Lamp'', where he manages to carry, singlehandedly, a bag of treasure that had given [[TheBigGuy Launchpad]] trouble.



* StickyFingers: It's an obsession with him.

Dijon, while a common thief otherwise, also seems to suffer from kleptomania, unable to resist stealing even when not intending to, including stealing worthless junk like old shoes.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Scrooge in his early appearances in Barks' run on Donald Duck comics was not as hypercompetent as his later roles and his adaptations would have you believe. He was at times as clumsy and klutzy as Donald and the latter was not easily cowed by his uncle as later stories would have you believe.

He was at times as clumsy and klutzy as Donald and the latter was not easily cowed by his uncle as later stories would have you believe. He was also simply wealthy, not the richest duck in the world. In "The Old Castle's Secret" he's in danger of going bankrupt and needs a few measly millions in the form of the family treasure to save his company.

* BigBad: Of the video game; she appears as the boss of the Transylvania level, and at the end of the game, after Scrooge has conquered Dracula Duck and his castle [[note]] (it's the Transylvania level exactly, except there's zero treasure, meaning Scrooge should just go straight to the boss room, this version of the level automatically starts after the player completes all 5 main levels) [[/note]], Magica returns with Glumgold in tow in an attempt to steal Scrooge's treasure. You just have to climb a straight rope to the top and jump to the treasure chest that's up there before they do to complete the game (this should be easy).

* WitchWithACapitalB: Used frequently In ''[=DuckTales=]'', she is often referred to as a witch in the AnimatedAdaptation.
an angered tone of voice, which obviously implies a certain word rhyming with witch due to how despicable she can be.

* Eagle-EyeDetection: Don Rosa gave Donald this in ''An Eye for Detail'' to explain how Donald is able to tell his nephews apart. Turns out that beyond just being able to do that Donald can easily notice the smallest details of most objects, such as whether or not a fly has walked over a donut and left footprints on it. At the end of the story he seems to lose the ability, but it turns out to be a trick to get his uncle to stop trying to force him to use it for profit. The ability turns up again in ''The Dutchman's Secret''.

** Strangely enough, though Scrooge thought Donald had lost the ability at the end of the first story he is once more aware that he has it during the second, asking Donald to use it to identify which lines on a wall drawing are new and which are old.

*** This example is probably made even worse because that map that Donald helps Scrooge recover? Some of the treasure they later find is what leads Scrooge to becoming ''The Last Lord of Eldorado''. In fact, in that story Donald's specifically the one that finds the the plaque that gives Scrooge the right to be said ''Lord''. So even had he not been the one to come up with the idea for getting the map he would still deserve some credit for the second achievement.
