* EastwardEndeavor: This trope backfired in Carl Barks' classic "Tralla La" story. Uncle Scrooge is so stressed by his money-centric life that he tries to escape it for a while, searching for a place without a monetary system to relax. He and his nephews discover [[TheShangriLa Tralla La]], hidden in the Himalayas. However, Scrooge brings his troubles with him, accidentally making bottle caps the new money of Tralla La and ruining the paradise he was looking for.

** A sequel by Don Rosa has the ducks searching for the mythical city of Xanadu and discovering it's actually Tralla La. The bottle cap situation was solved while they weren't there and Tralla La was back to being an utopia. Scrooge and co. start to enjoy it again until they accidentally flood the city. They actually solve that problem (ironically with the help of the bottle caps, forged into saws to access the floodgate) and leave the city for good.

* {{Nephewism}}:
** The relation between Donald and the triplets is a contender for the TropeMaker. Donald himself also spends a lot of time with his own uncle Scrooge. And Scrooge is eventually revealed to have left Scotland at a young age to live with his own uncle Pothole (though only briefly). You'd think it was a family tradition.
** Gladstone and Fethry both have nephews, Shamrock and Dugan, who basically play for the triplets the same role their uncles play for Scrooge. So does Gyro, come to think of it.

** There's an Italian comic where Donald takes a nap on a bed in Gyro Gearloose's workplace, but accidentally activates a dream device by releasing a nightmare potion. The rest of the comic features freaky scenes such as [[DirtyCop the Beagle Boys running the police force]] and pursuing Donald, Uncle Scrooge dying when he activates his Money Bin's self-destruct before turning into a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant coin-monster]], and Little Helper becoming a robotic MadScientist by switching places with Gyro. At the end Donald wakes up back in Gyro's workplace and realizes it was all a dream.

* LoveTriangle: Averted. Despite the fact that Brigitta Mac Bridge and Glittering Goldie love the same man, Scrooge [=McDuck=], these two quite different ladies have never been in conflict in the rare comic stories where they both appear. In Scarpa's story ''Arriva Paperetta Yè-Yè'' ("The Arrival of Dickie Duck"), Brigitta feels really sad when she sees Scrooge and Glittering together for a brief moment, but then Glittering comforts her and says that she assumes Brigitta loves Scrooge's stinginess more than himself and Brigitta thanks for Glittering's "kind" words and calls her "my friend".

* ReformedCriminal: The Beagle Boys actually tried to genuinely reform their criminal ways at least once, when they were offered parole in exchange for getting into an honest-job program. The problems only start when one of them begins an OfficeRomance, except the girl turns out to be a crazy AllGirlsWantBadBoys-type who pressures him to help her commit a bank robbery to get out of her boring life.

* LovecraftLite: You could call ''Land beneath the Ground'' a Barksian version of Creator/HPLovecraft, surprisingly enough - just read it. And while you're at it, check out ''Ancient Persia'' ...''The Case of Charles Dexter Ward'', anyone? None of these are gloomy enough to count as real {{Cosmic Horror Stor|y}}ies, of course. Except for the obscure Danish story ''The Call of C'Russo'', which is straight lovecraftian horror.

* DirtyCop: There have been at least two stories where the Beagle Boys were shown to be in charge of the Duckburg police force. In the first, it was part of an AlternateHistory where they changed occupation because Scrooge had already lost his fortune, and in the second it was just part of a [[AllJustADream weird-ass nightmare]] that Donald was having. Also, in the former example they said Donald could buy his way out of a ticket.
