* MsFanservice: Beverly, who particularly in the B&W illustrated magazine version of ''Howard the Duck'' was often shown in skimpy clothing. In addition, the character's backstory included time working as a nude model. Then there's the fact that she wore a skimpy two-piece suit in her first appearance.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Early on Howard would do this on occasion. In one adventure he directly addresses the readers and tell them that he ''knows'' the story took a weird turn, but it beats the initial DrivenToSuicide plot.

Howard was also the cause of a legal dispute between Marvel and Gerber, who claimed to own the character. This caused Gerber to leave the company and led to many years of legal wranglings; in the end, the situation was settled with Marvel keeping ownership of Howard. Howard has appeared occasionally in various Marvel titles since the 1970s, and a few years ago starred in a miniseries (again by Gerber) that made open references to his sexual relationship with Beverly (it was part of Marvel's adult-oriented [[Creator/MarvelMAX MAX]] line, which may not be a canonical part of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse.) He was one of the major parodied characters in the ''ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse'', merged with Creator/DCComics's SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} as ''Lobo The Duck''. Seriously. He appeared again as an agent of the dimensional-patrolling agency ARMOR in the "Marvel Zombies" comics, starring alongside various heroes such as Aaron Stack, the Machine Man, and also had an appearance in the ''[[LegoAdaptationGame LEGO Marvel Superheroes]]'' game as an unlockable character.
