* DarkestHour: PK lives it in ''Might and Power'': thrusted back into action after a prolonged inactivity, against a resurrected Evronian threat that not even his powerful new gear seems able to stop, and a new ally that constantly doubts his abilities and moral code, he suffers a string of failures that end up with [[spoiler:the destruction of Ducklair Tower]], himself escaping it narrowly. Things get better after that.

** The Well in the Ultimate-like reboot ''PK'' was retooled to be this: it's a small planetoid that has only one "day" of sunlight per "year". Its wildlife is usually in hibernation, only waking up during the "day" - and it's absolutely vicious, making the Well an extremely dangerous place. The Evronians use it as a testing ground for mutated soldiers: if a model survives, it's considered good enough to be mass-produced.

* DrivenToSuicide: Yes, you read that right: [[spoiler:Grrodon the last Evrononian, who remained on Earth alone for three centuries after Paperinik destroyed the Evronian Empire, tries to transform the hero into a [[SlaveRace Coolflame]] in the future. However, thanks to a gun created by Odin Eidolon, he fails. Desperate, Grrodon steals a flying car and heads for the space, knowing that the car will explode.]] Can count as an AlasPoorVillain.

* DudeMagnet: Paperinik says Lyla would be a very pretty duck... If she weren't a RobotGirl. [[spoiler:Urk]] sends her a love letter. [[spoiler: Her designer Leonard Vertighel]] loves her and thinks she's the perfect woman.
* {{Dystopia}}: How Corona's society is depicted seems to vary somewhat between different issues, but it is always ''some'' flavor of this. Some versions tend more toward the [[CrapsaccharineWorld softer]] end of the spectrum, whereas the last issue of ''PK2'' unmasks it as a full-blown [[BigBrotherIsWatching techno-dystopia]] with SinisterSurveillance, robotic police enforcers and a psychic StateSec.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: What the Evrons want to do to Earth, and have already done to many other worlds.

* EarthAllAlong: [[spoiler: Paperinik ends up on the "Lady Elenthari", the ship of space mercenary Neopard, who forces him to fight with him in a war on "a distant, periferic planet" in exchange of returning him to Earth. At the end of the issue, PK is enraged to find out that the planet '''is''' Earth, as they had simply ended up in the Sahara desert.]]

* WhatIf: The last issue of the first series, which is in fact titled "If..." Using [[spoiler:Everett with a magic book]] as a DeusExMachina, it explores the consequences of the events of #1, 2 and 3 had things gone differently.
** The miniseries ''PK Universe'', started in January 2014, answers the question: "What if Paperinik had to fight the Evronians without One's assistance?"

*** ...the Evrons managed to kidnap Angus? [[spoiler:Evron/Angus hybrids. Really]].
*** ...PK still trusted One despite [[EvilTwin Two]]'s meddling? [[spoiler:PK goes in the Cyberspace, but Two attempts a GrandTheftMe on him]].
*** ...the Cold Sun experiment ''was'' allowed to happen? [[spoiler:Duckburg gets destroyed, PK [[FaceHeelTurn becomes evil]], TearJerker ensues]].

* {{Cyberpsace}}: Apparently, Everett Ducklair built an entrance to cyberspace in his basement to analyze his own programs from within. Paperinik uses it for some hands-on hacking, when necessary.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''New Era'' stories can be hard to follow for who has come in contact with the franchise starting with ''Might and Power'' and the ''PK Giant'' reprints, on top of giving them massive spoilers for the original series. For example, whoever read ''The Mark of Moldrock'' at the time of first publication in May 2017 would be familiar with the returning [[spoiler:Trauma]], but completely baffled at the mentions of [[spoiler:Juniper and Corona]], because the reprints of ''[=PK2=]'' won't start before ''March 2019''.

* InsignificantLittleBluePlanet: Well... sort of. There is an invading force hidden in the asteroid belt that plans on conquering Earth, so the Evronians do have interest in our planet. That said, the higher-ups on Evron can't ever remember its name.

* InsignificantLittleBluePlanet: Well... sort of. There is an invading force hidden in the asteroid belt that plans on conquering The Evronians, who are currently trying to invade Earth, view it as so insignificant that the members of the Imperial Council have problem recalling its name. And the ''only'' reason they even bothered learning it is a combination of Earth being scheduled to have its oceans being used to ''cool off the engines of their PlanetSpaceship'' and Earthling being relatively tough to conquer (enough they can't just bulldoze in).
** Later {{Subverted}}:
the Evronians do have interest in our planet. That said, are {{Emotion Eater}}s who [[PoweredByAForsakenChild fuel most of their technology with stolen emotions]] with a process that drains the higher-ups on Evron can't ever remember its victim completely and forever, but Earthlings are so emotionally rich that a single shot of their Evronguns often isn't enough and they can recover...meaning that humanity is an unending banquet and the possible solution to Evron's impending energy crisis. The Imperial Council ''still'' has trouble remembering the name.

* CryoPrison: The TimePolice incarcerates this way some criminals, and keep them in a jail ''out of time''. {{Justified}} because the Time Police apply this only to those criminals that are so dangerous they're not concerned with punishment or rehabilitation but ''protect the world from them'', and that's the only way to do it besides death penalty (that in the future they apparently don't have anymore)... And ''even that'' could fail: the Raider has the nasty habit to break out before they can place him in the cryo cell (he did it at least twice, and in one occasion even stole a prototype device to move between dimensions), and the one time they ''did'' get him in the Time Police found out they only placed his ''frozen image'' in the cryo cell.



* CutTheJuice:
** Paperinik tries this against One when he believes [[AIIsACrapshoot he shows signs of going insane]]. Actually [[spoiler:the "evidence" was planted by Two, who wanted his twin to be shut down while]] he has plenty of backup generators, as he gleefully informs Paperinik.
** Also done with the Evronians in issue #0/3: they have trapped Paperinik and Xadhoom in an inescapable force field, but as the force field is fueled by Duckburg's power plant One is able to free them by hacking that and cutting the juice of the generator.

* DeathWorld: Armadha, Colonel Neopard's homeworld, is a minor example: its mostly covered by its four deserts (two hot, two cold), and it'd have barely breathable air if it weren't for the air factories. Main export: [[HadToBeSharp its]] [[HiredGuns inhabitants]].

to:

* DeathWorld: DeathRay: The Evronians have their standard sidearms, the Evronguns. They normally drain someone's emotions, but Grrodon explains they can be set to drain someone's life energy, thus fulfilling the trope.

* {{Expy}}: Paperinik started as the Disney version of ComicBook/{{Diabolik}} before evolving in a different direction. Recent Paperinik stories outside ''New Adventures'' 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]].
This list shows the last 10 events of 300. Show all.
