** In "Orange is the New Purple", villains from the ''Disney Adventures'' comic stories such as Pokerface, Rabbit Racer, and Clawed Hopper are among the prisoners in the St. Canard prison. Of particular note is Fluffy, the super-genius cat who starred in three ''Disney Adventures'' stories, who manipulates the villain-worshiping Mortimer (formerly Cat-Tankerous) into arranging his escape.

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Well, it's obvious that Darkwing fights two infamous Disney villains from other comics: Magica de Spell is Scrooge[= McDuck=]'s enemy, and the Phantom Blot is known to be Mickey Mouse's arch nemesis. Conversely, in Boom's concurrent ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' comics, John D. Rockerduck hires Darkwing's enemies Moliarty and Camille Chameleon, as mercenaries to stop Scrooge, Launchpad, and his nephews from getting Scrooge's treasure back.

** In "Campaign Carnage," Suff-Rage torments Darkwing by asking what he is afraid of, and changing him to match her questions. When she asks if he is afraid that he is not original, Darkwing then gains multiple heads with the likenesses of his alternate selves from the "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings" arc, many of which were examples of CaptainErsatz and NoCelebritiesWereHarmed. In other words, the comic is mocking itself for having so many of Darkwing's alternate selves be based on copyrighted characters and celebrities. The Joe Books revision takes it a step further, by having Darkwing and Launchpad make fun of Suff-Rage's name.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Dangerous Currency will become this due to the omnibus published by Joe Books omitting the last two issues of the original comic and making an entirely new story in its place. It's been stated by some correspondences with Aaron Sparrow that, to begin with, the story was published without Disney's approval and that a new crossover might be written later, but only time will tell.

** In "Orange is the New Purple", Clawed Hopper from the ''Disney Adventures'' comic story "Cereal Capers" is among the prisoners that Negaduck releases from his cell. Another cell is implied to belong to Fluffy, the super-genius cat who starred in three ''Disney Adventures'' stories, but he is in solitary confinement and so his cell only holds a well-used scratching post and a giant ball of yarn.

* RedHerring: The revised version of the "Campaign Carnage" arc in the Joe Books omnibus, at first seems to have changed it, so that Suff-Rage is Morgana [=McCawber=] after a FaceHeelTurn, due to referring to Darkwing as "Dark," and her helmet matching the shape of Morgana's hair (the latter actually being the case in the original Boom version), [[spoiler: but it turns out that she is still Constance A.
