* DoubleStandardViolenceChildOnAdult:
** In the classic comics (that is to say, by Creator/CarlBarks), before the kids became Junior Woodchucks, they were ''extremely'' naughty, mischievous brats, and Donald would smack, whip, and paddle their asses ''quite'' often, and it was not only played for laughs, it was strongly implied that they were getting their ''just desserts''. This was phased out once they became Junior Woodchucks and started becoming more and more proactive, wise, mature do-gooders, almost to the point of [[MarySue sueishness]], especially in the DonRosa stories.
** One particularly {{egregious}} story revolved around a child psychologist selling Donald on the idea that beating the kids up was evil, and that he had been stifling their creativity and should let them do as they please; Huey, Dewey and Louie abuse the situation to extreme levels, and act like whimsical, irresponsible brats. Once Donald catches on, he invites said psychologist at home for dinner and a chat, and, while he pompously lectures Donald, the kids ''blow fireworks under his armchair''. His clothes singed, his face a mask of fury, he leaps at the kids, ready to beat the crap out of them, while Donald looks on, a smug grin on his face.

* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: In the Carl Barks-penned ''Scrooge [=McDuck=]'' story "Back to the Klondike", saloon owner Glittering Goldie manages to steal Scrooge's Goose Egg gold nugget after putting a drug in his coffee and dumping him outside of town after going through his pockets. He immediately went back and [[OneManArmy roughed up everyone in the place]] before retrieving his record-size nugget, getting an I.O.U. out of Goldie for losing the rest of his gold in a card game, and kidnapping her to work on his claim in the mountains.

* HowDoIShotWeb:
** Paperinik (Donald superhero alter-ego) sometimes has troubles with his gadgets, both in PKNA and non-PKNA stories. It's downplayed in PKNA, given he has One to help him with those (but still doesn't know how to use the full potential of his [[MorphWeapon Extransformer shield]], and when One gets deactivated he finds out he has no idea how to fuel the [=PKar=]... Or what the fuel ''is''), but in non-PKNA stories he has some added problems because Gyro either forgets to explain how they work or gives him a ''gigantic'' user manual he cannot possibly read.
*** Actually {{Invoked}} in the non-PKNA story in which the Beagle Boys stole his 313-X car and some of his weapons... Only to get repeteadly humiliated because Paperinik knows how to use them and they don't (the paralizing pistol, for example, is single-shot).
** In her debut, Paperinika (Daisy superhero alter-ego) had some serious problems at using her skating boots, and the first attempt ended with a ridiculous pratfall. Averted for the other gadgets, as her supplier has the common sense to explain how to use the things and provide sensibly-sized user manuals... Or simply provides gadgets that are based on something she already knows how to use (such as her [[BikerBabe bike]]).
** This happens rather often in ''The Amazing Adventures of Fantomius: GentlemanThief'', the prequel dedicated to the duck that would inspire Donald into becoming Paperinik: Fantomius' GadgeteerGenius is a relative of Gyro and just as much as a CloudCuckooLander as him, and sometimes forgets to tell him something-[[FlawedPrototype or to include working brakes]]. [[RunningGag Fantomius himself still has to figure how to dodge rose bushes]].

* {{Elseworld}}: There are way too many examples to count where the Ducks are plucked out of Duckburg and put into wildly different settings. For example, a prominent Italian one has Donald Duck as a down-on-his-luck Caledonian warlord trying to repel a Viking invasion.

* WorthlessYellowRocks: Played with at the conclusion of Carl Barks' ''Twenty-Four Carat Moon''. Scrooge ends up getting to the second moon, which as the story's title suggest is made out of solid gold before any other Earthling, only to find an alien who claims to have arrived there some time ago, making the golden moon his. The alien agrees to trade the moon to earth for some dirt, which Scrooge naturally agrees to. However, the alien places the dirt in a machine he has, which turns it into an entirely new planet, with continents and oceans, that is capable of supporting life! The alien then flies off on the planet, completely satisfied, as he had come to place less value on the gold than he originally did when he came to the moon. This leaves Scrooge with possession of a moon made entirely out of gold, which is more than likely more than he's ever had previously, yet wondering whether or not he really got the better end of the deal.
