* The proper return of PK, informally called ''Paperinik New Era''. It started with the four-part storyline ''Might and Power'', published on the weekly Italian Mickey Mouse magazine in July 2014, and set an unspecified amount of time after the end of ''[=PK2=]''. Future PKNE stories are going to be published on the same magazine aperiodically for now, just like ''ComicBook/DoubleDuck''. A second storyline, ''The Banks of Time'', was published in May 2015, with a collector's edition of ''Might and Power'' released concurrently. A third storyline, titled ''The Black Ray'', has also been announced for November 2015.

* {{Expy}}: Paperinik started as the Disney version of ComicBook/{{Diabolik}} before evolving in a different direction. Recent Paperinik stories outside ''PaperinikNewAdventures'' pay homage to this by having Lord Quackett aka Fantomius (the GentlemanThief who was the in-universe inspiration of Paperinik) [[http://www.salimbeti.com/paperinik/images/fantomius70.jpg look like the Duckified version of Diabolik]].

** Also, everyone knows that Paperinik has various [[LatexPerfection perfect masks]], including some of Donald himself. People probably figured out he's wearing a Donald's mask over his true face. Plus, in a non-PaperinikNewAdventures story there was a memorable incident of the Beagle Boys unmasking PK and discovering the face of billionaire John D. Rockerduck, then he sneezed away the mask revealing the face of Donald, then he sneezed away that mask too to reveal a monstrous face (he was having issues with the glue of his masks): after that, only people who are from outside the city would think they can discover his face that easily...

* MythologyGag: The FinalBattle between Paperinik and Trauma in PKNA #10 takes place at the Cathedral of Notre Duck, which appeared in a CarlBarks story. Also in #13 Bravestone, the village attacked by the Evronians, has the same name as a village in another Barks story, and two old citizens speak about a young Scrooge McDuck.

''Paperinik New Adventures'' is perhaps one of the strangest (at least to non-italians) but most interesting titles produced by Italian Creator/{{Disney}} comics.

''Paperinik New Adventures'' is perhaps one of the strangest (at least to non-italians) non-Italians) but most interesting titles produced by Italian Creator/{{Disney}} comics.

In an obvious case of [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Italians Love Donald Duck]], the character of Paperinik was created way back in the late [[TheSixties 1960s]] as a GentlemanThief SecretIdentity to make Donald Duck less of a loser and capitalize upon the success these kinds of stories were having in the country at the time (see ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'', which also inspired Paperinik's name "Paperino" is Donald Duck's italian name), but he quickly switched from avenging the wrongs he suffered in his Donald Duck persona to generally [[NonPoweredCostumedHero fighting crime]], thanks to the various super-gadgets [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys built for him by Gyro Gearloose]]. For more than thirty years, many stories about him were written, most of them totally out of continuity, and some even contradicting previously established facts, with the popularity of the character waxing and waning in cycles, though he was always well-received.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: True for Evronians with military power: with the exception of the occasional GiantMook, low-ranking troopers are as strong as the average human being; officers haven't been shown in physical combat, but are more muscular than the troopers; all known generals but two (an unknown high ranking political general and pre-SuperSoldier Trauma) are tall, muscular and one even survived a direct hit from [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]]; members of the Imperial Senate are like the generals, only ''bigger''; finally the Imperial caste have the ability to fire lethal beams from the non-talking head, with the Emperor having serious muscles too and proving he can handily defend himself.

** The Xerbians have a variant, as the authority depends from the IQ: the higher it is, the greatest is your authority. That came to bite them back in the ass: pre-superpowered Xadhoom may have been the most intelligent Xerbian in history, but became the president when she was still too young and naive, and [[WeComeInPeaceShootToKill was the main force behind Xerba signing a commercial treaty with Evron]].

* BigScrewedUpFamily: Where do we even begin with the Ducklairs? First off, the father: Everett is one of the smartest minds on the planet but his ScienceRelatedMemeticDisorder caused him to turn everything he touched in a superweapon: it took him several years of meditation far away from civilization to resolve that. He is also [[spoiler:an alien escaped from planet Corona. He brought his daughters with him, to save them from [[BlessedWithSuck becoming the queens of said planet]]. Unfortunately, due to a series of accidents upon their arrival on Earth, he left them when they were children and found them again as adults.]] He still has regrets over this. His daughters, Korinna and Juniper, are basically two kids trapped in adult bodies, and they refuse to forgive him. They also plan [[spoiler:to turn Earth into a [[CrapSaccharineWorld new Corona]]]]. And then there is Serifa, Everett's wife and Korinna and Juniper's mother, who [[spoiler:is just interested in using her children to obtain the title she never got]]. Man, is this enough for everybody?

* BodyHorror: The most important members of the Evronian Imperial Council [[spoiler:and the Emperor]] have two heads: one on their shoulders, and an eyeless one on the tip of their tail. Not horrified yet? Very well. Did I mention that the eyeless tail-head is the one that does the talking? The other has a BreathWeapon.

[[PercussiveMaintenance Stomping on the shield in anger]] [[NiceJobFixingItVillain manages to activate it]], [[HoistByHisOwnPetard blasting him to Hawaii]].

*** The full plot, [[AllThereInTheManual explained in]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs issue #15's]] [[AllThereInTheManual data columns]], is a bit more complicated (to the point most readers failed to understand it after multiple re-reading of said column). And includes an ''AlienInvasion'' (inspired by Sam's second run-in with the Evronians). ''In a soap opera!'' Also, he apparently became a better writer after his first run-in with the Evronians resulted in him getting most of his emotions and intellectual capacity sucked away.

* CoolCar: The Pi-Kar, the hero's flying car, equipped with any kind of gadgets and weapons, just like the [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batmobile]]. It comes with a CoolGarage with a lot of secret exits (and full of other Cool Cars, but One does not allow Paperinik to use them). In ''[=PK2=]'' the hero is given a new model as a [[spoiler:parting gift from One, before Everett deactivated him]]: it can shapeshift to be HiddenInPlainSight (a necessity since [[spoiler:PK was booted out from Ducklair Tower]]. ** A correction: One doesn't allow ''Donald Duck'' to use them, as they would draw too much attention and people would start making questions and pondering things if they suddenly saw Donald driving a superfancy car instead of his old 313.

*** The 313 with the X plate is officially known as the "313-X". It's basically the same car as ever, plus some additions built by Gyro Gearloose in the more traditional - and milder - Paperinik stories. Said additions give Donald the possibility to switch between [[http://lnx.ginevra2000.it/Disney/banda1/313.jpg the 313]] and [[http://pkhack.altervista.org/paperinik_313x.png the 313-X]] at will, whenever he needs to do so; and given Paperinik has no superpowers, like Franchise/{{Batman}}, the 313-X can be similarly compared to a downgraded Batmobile.

* DeepImmersionGaming / UnusualUserInterface: The Ducklair Tower has a room that basically amounts to a [[Franchise/StarTrek holodeck]], used to explore computer programs from the inside. Downside: the projections are very realistic and there are no security measures -- meaning that if someone is injured they get hurt for real. * DemotedToExtra: Scrooge [=McDuck=] is the only member of the regular [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Disney Ducks]] apart from Donald who gets any amount of screen-time in PKNA, (even Huey, Dewey and Louie are PutOnABus), but he has a very minor role and barely gets involved in the plots. Similarly, Donald's nephews are the only classic characters to be seen in ''[=PK2=]'', and always briefly.
