* WholePlotReference: Some select stories homage other works in their entirety. For instance, one Italian one was based on ''Literature/Fahrenheit451'', just with the Ducks living in a dystopia where all books are forbidden.

There's also a Danish one based on ''Film/TheShining'', though obviously with less ax-murder.

** In the story "Paperino e l'incubo dello zione" Uncle Scrooge is seemingly visited by characters from his recurring nightmares, then Donald discovers it's all a plot by the Beagle Boys to rob Scrooge. Scrooge then promises that he'll reward Donald with ''half of his entire riches''. At this point it's revealed that the entire story was just Donald's happy dream.

** Is the money bin actually all of Scrooge's money? Don Rosa and most of the European comics establish that Scrooge has untold billions in banks from his businesses and investments, while the money bin is simply all the money Scrooge ever made personally. Other writers go the Ducktales route and have Scrooge instantly become penniless every time the bin gets stolen.

** Famously in Carl Barks story "The Magic Hourglass" Scrooge laments that if he loses a billion dollars a minute, he'll go broke in 600 years. That adds up to 315 ''quadrillion'' dollars. You could remove three zeros from that and Scrooge would still have more money than currently exists in the world.

* FriendsRentControl: Despite PerpetualPoverty being one of Donald's major characteristics, he maintains residence in a nice two-story house in the suburbs. Some stories HandWave this by saying it is Scrooge who really owns the property and Donald has to pay next to no rent because of this.

* TheScapegoat: There's an Italian comic in which Uncle Scrooge goes to a mountain country to buy a ''literal'' scapegoat so everyone who complains to him can do so to the goat. However, eventually the goat gets so fed up with being blamed for everything that he goes ballistic and wrecks Scrooge's money bin.

* HaveAGayOldTime: In the first ''Disney/TheThreeCaballeros'' comic Rosa did, he changed the lyrics of the eponymous song to remove the verse "the three gay caballeros". In the second one, the line is intact. You could almost swear there's a guy giving them a knowing gaze as they sing it that time...

** Also shown to be the case at the conclusion to Barks' ''The Money Stairs''. Dealing with Donald and Scrooge competing to see whether there are some things that Scrooge's money can't accomplish, it ends with Donald waking up and telling his nephews that he realized it was a dream after Scrooge offered to buy him a soda. In restrospect, the events being a dream make sense, as the story features Scrooge being fairly carefree with spending his money to beat Donald.

*** One panel survives from an aborted non-dream ending that Barks drew at first but scrapped—he went with the dream ending because the "money stairs" of the title, a mountain-size stairway built out of coins, seemed too impossible to be real.
