* AllJustADream: Combined with OrWasItADream, because of course with thousands of comics in existence this one shows up once in a while. ''"The Miracle Master"'', ''"The Pirate Ghostship"'', ''"The World of Tomorrow"'', ''"The Professor's Experiment"'', and ''"The Black Sorcerer"'' are early examples.

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Aberzombies are type TechnicallyLivingZombie. Through chemical means, their will to think has been destoryed, turning them into faithful servants. They were introduced in ''"Mickey Mouse and the 'Lectro Box"'' and either are an invention of Doctor Grut or an older technique he adapted to his own uses because Phantasmo in ''"The Black Sorcerer"'' also seems to have an aberzombie servant.

* UnexpectedInheritance: In ''"Death Valley"'', Minnie inherits a mine from her uncle Mortimer whose death she hears of concurrently with the news she's his heiress. It turns out he's still alive and the inheritance was merely a test how safe she'd without his watchful eye so he can prepare for when he does actually die. Her status as a heiress is relevant again in ''"Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies"'', in which Minnie is abducted for a ransom aimed at Mortimer.

* VagueAge: Overlaps with ArtisticAge, types 3 and 4. Gottfredson hinted at an age below 20 for Mickey and Minnie, while Clarabelle (and by extension Horace and Goofy) was in the 35-40 area. In ''"The Black Crow Mystery"'', Mickey finds he's too young to join the armed forces. This means he's under 18 at that time. The Walsh era corroborates this indirectly. Drusilla is said to look like a 17-year old in ''"The House of Mystery"'' and Minnie views her as a romantic rival. In ''"The Midas Ring"'', the newspapers describe Mickey as a "boy financier". Meanwhile, the titular lectro box in ''"Mickey Mouse and the 'Lectro Box"'' makes Clarabelle appear as a young woman probably in the age range of Minnie, which Clarabelle defines as "looking twenty years younger". In ''"Mickey Mouse and the Gypsies"'', Clarabelle is asked if Minnie is her daughter. Somewhat unfortunately, Peg-leg Pete and Sylvester Shyster would have to be at least 30-40 if they were part of Captain Churchmouse's crew fifteen years prior according to ''"Mickey Mouse Sails for Treasure Island"''. This makes their VillainousCrush on Minnie extra creepy. After the Gottfredson-Walsh era in the USA and nearly from the start in Europe, the (implied) ages have been muddled to meet a halfway point. Mickey and Minnie are depicted as older, while Clarabelle and the others appear to have been made a little younger.

** In a later newspaper strip serial ("The Melting of the Polar Ice Cap," Sept 1991), Dr. Doublecross has built a machine to divide him back into his two component selves; then in the much later comic book story ''"The Past Imperfect!"'' (1998), the non-fused Ecks and Doublex reference their earlier period of having been combined into one. So while Doublecross might not have originally been intended as a fusion of Ecks and Doublex, that is certainly how it was later locked into continuity.

* {{Elseworld}}: ''ComicBook/WizardsOfMickey'' and ''Mickey and the Sleuth'' are these. In a BatFamilyCrossover with the Duck Universe, the American translation of ''Hero Squad: Ultraheroes'' MiniSeries is this as well. Mind that this is an invention of the translator to justify the weirdness of the story. In Italy, where it was created, it's considered canon to the main universe.

* TreasureMap: Used a ''lot'' and is one [[TheCall recurring motive]] for Mickey to seek out adventure. Stories to use one are ''"Race for Rickes"'', ''"Sunken Treasure"'', ''"The Giant Pearls of Agoo Island"'', ''"The Sign of the Squid"'', and ''"The Ghost of the Conquistador"''. Stories that build their plot around a fake one are ''"The Pirates' Den"'' and ''"The Lost Mine Of Misery Mountains"''.

* PhilosophersStone: It appeared in ''"The Golden Touch"'', where, as per the title, it could [[TheMagicTouch change anything it touched into gold]]. ''Anything''. The only reason Pete didn't become an [[TakenForGranite expensive statue]] is that turning living tissue into gold took longer and that the stone was abandoned in the first place because it was running low. By coincidence, Pete saved himself by getting gung-ho on producing gold, so the stone got used up before it could finish the process on him.

* BoundAndGagged: Happened numerous times to Minnie and Clarabelle in the early comics. These days, it's as likely to happen to male characters, in particular whenever Mickey gets played for a DistressedDude.

* BoundAndGagged: Happened numerous times Always happened to Minnie and Clarabelle whomever, but in the early comics. These days, it's as likely to happen comics usually to male characters, characters for getting in a criminal's way, while to female character for simply existing. Modern comics have ditched the distinction. A particular whenever comic to feature the trope is ''"The Rajah's Treasure"'', in which Mickey gets played for and Minnie getting tied up is a DistressedDude.RunningGag that leads to a final panel {{punchline}}. It might have been inspired by ''"The Nazi Submarine"'' which also has Mickey and Minnie tied up, just constantly instead of repeatedly.

** BarefootCartoonAnimal: Professor Triplex notably goes around without shoes, but it's less the trope and more a design choice to differentiate him from his colleages. As with the above trope, the mynah birds that aren't quite people fit, but don't entirely count.

* There's ''"It's a Wonderful Christmas Story"'', which surprisingly only spends one page (of fourteen) on this trope as presented by Santa Claus. In short, Chief O'Hara had to resign after failing to capture the Blot and now directs traffic while Casey took over as the chief. Goofy has homeless because he never had a best friend to look after him. Horace went to jail after becoming involved in a pyramid scheme. Clarabelle faithfully visits him as often as she can. Minnie is in an one-off relation with Mortimer, while Morty and Ferdie spend their time at daycare when Felicity and Frank get overwhelmed. Pluto's fate is explicitly left open and a boy Mickey saved earlier in the story is now in a wheelchair. Finally, Pete is mayor of Mouseton and owns most of its business. Notwithstanding that some characters ''are'' worse off, the comic's narrative presents things bleaker than they are. Morty and Ferdie seem to have fun at the daycare, the boy's still bright in his wheelchair, and things certainly worked out for Casey. There's not even a reason given to believe Pete's still a crook.
