* BittersweetEnding: Surprisingly happens a lot, especially in ''PK New Era.'' Special shout out to ''The Event Horizon'' where [[spoiler:PK, Raider, and Everett save Corona, but Everett & Juniper lose Korinna. And Serifa's whereabouts are still unknown.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LowerDeckEpisode: The '97 special, ''Missing'', in which PK goes [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin missing]] and the others spend the issue looking for him.


Added DiffLines:

* ShooOutTheClowns: A non-permanent version. Usually, if Donald/PK isn't the focus or is sidelined, the issue is bound to be more dramatic than your usual PK story.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: Corona, homeworld of [[spoiler:Everett Ducklair]]. Under the facade of a realized utopia where advanced technology and nature have achieved a perfect coexistence, overseen by an illuminate matriarchal government that elects a queen, lies an absurdly strict and competitive society. After a scandal involving a previous queen, who defied the celibacy required with the role, a new system to select future queens was created, consisting in having little girls grow into adulthood inside capsules, to avoid the influence of "useless" emotions. Beside the inherent wrongness of the system, which can only end up creating [[PsychopathicManchild very emotionally stunted individuals]], it's evident that even before, under the apparent harmony lied strong rivalries for the title of queen. A woman who didn't manage to get elected, accepted her boyfriend's marriage proposal only to have daughters and make them fulfill her dream. We are speaking of [[spoiler:Serifa, Everett's wife]].

** Through the ''New Era'' stories, new menaces are piling up in the universe - a resurrected Evronian threat ([[spoiler:which in truth never really got away, since there are ''multiple Evronian empires'']]), mechanical beings that can absorb stars, multiple energy beings as powerful as Xadhoom if not even more, Corona turned into a dystopia with tech that can now threaten ''the multiverse''. The cosmos outside Earth is increasingly looking like a bad place to be.


Added DiffLines:

** Despite being published on the same weekly magazine that periodically hosts the classic Paperinik stories, ''New Era'' storylines haven't become lighter in the slightest. Since ''Might and Power'', where he's been thrusted back into action to [[spoiler:prevent an especially bleak BadFuture that started with his assassination]], the hero has faced new or renewed threats that make the ones from PKNA and ''[=PK2=]'' pale in comparison.

* CerebusSyndrome: The series was already darker than your average Disney comic, then the sequel series, ''[=PK2=]'' came along.

* GenocideBackfire: The Evronians are feared across the galaxy for their destruction and enslavement of many different species. This backfired on them when they destroyed the planet Xerba, where a scientist had performed experiments on herself so she could [[ThePowerOfTheSun acquire the power of a star]]. So to their terror the Evronians were suddenly confronted with a virtually instoppable superbeing gunning after them to avenge her people.

* GuiltFreeExterminationWar: Xadhoom's war against the Evronians: they are an imperialistic AlwaysChaoticEvil species who destroyed her homeworld and exterminated almost all of her people, so she's going to exterminate them right back. It's deliciously karmic to see the BigBad of the comic so scared out of their wits by [[GenocideBackfire a problem they themselves created]].

** TheWorfEffect
* The HumongousMecha of the Stalhburg army is destroyed in a single shot by the Evronian Centurion cruiser.
* In PKNE #5, [[spoiler:Trauma]] is subjected to this ''twice'', although the second time is more justified since [[spoiler:his opponent is Moldrock, proving so strong he breaks out of Trauma's fear-inducing powers]].

* OffTheRails: in Pikappa #10 ''No Return'', Pk derails his exam's scenario beyond any repair [[spoiler:by destroying the (fake) black hole that trapped the ship, and proving that the instructor officer faked his own death in order to test all the examined Guardians in a high-stress situation]]. Unlike the average examples of this trope, the instructor praises Pk, and awards him a full score.
