** This might in fact be partially justified by the fact that he was wearing metal armour at the time which could function as a kind of Faraday cage. The problem is of course that he wasn't wearing the lower half of the suit, so the electricity would still have to pass through his legs. But the lightning could arguably have missed his vital organs thanks to the metal, giving him a better chance of survival. Good enough for comic book logic at least.

* AnAesop: Hard work and perseverance pays off! Don Rosa himself was shocked and touched to receive letters from people who would tell him that reading ''Life and Times'' inspired them in ''RealLife'' to work hard for their dreams and to not be afraid of failure. Not bad for a (technically) children's comic about an anthropomorphic duck.

* BullyingADragon: When the last remaining Beagle Boy still inside Scrooge's mind gets sick of trying to trick Scrooge into revealing the codes to his vault, and tries to use brute force instead. Unfortunately, at that point they're in Scrooge's dream about the events of ''Hearts Of The Yukon'', and as Donald points out, THIS Scrooge isn't an 80 year old business man; he's The King Of Klondike, the man who tamed White Agony Creek, and took out a riverboat full of claim jumpers by himself. Cue OhCrap moment from the Beagle Boy just as Scrooge is turning red from fury.

* TheDreaded: The mere mention of the name "Steele" is enough to make any Yukon resident involved in anything shady flee in terror.

* CallForward: Goldie mentioning that with all the "sourdoughs and their gold dust, I expect to be ''glittering'' by spring!"

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] When Goldie finds the piece of paper containing something Scrooge had been admiring every night, she excitedly opens it, only to angrily find that it's "only a stupid lock of someone's--". She then pauses in shock, realizing the lock of hair is ''hers.''

to:

* {{Bowdlerize}}: The "Between the legs!" part has been watered down in some translations. In the Norwegian, for example, said line is kept, but Scrooge's wavering at his next line (realizing what he said) is removed, giving the indication that only Goldie got a suggestive meaning out of it, not Scrooge.
