* 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.

** The new character introduced in PKNE ''Might and Power''. [[spoiler:The Omega Chamber AI accuses PK of having been too soft in the past, and wants the hero to become more ruthless. When PK is trapped inside Nebula's base and decides to supercharge its weapons to punch a hole and escape through the walls rather than kill the Evronian soldiers, the AI calls him out on it.]]
* 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.

* 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=]''. Further PKNE storylines are going to be published on the same magazine aperiodically for now, just like ''ComicBook/DoubleDuck''; two more have been published in May and November 2015. Collector's Editions of these storylines are published a few months after the magazine's.
* A large-format reprint of the original series called "PK Giant - 3K Edition" has began in November 2014, with new covers by the original artists, a return of the beloved fan mail section and new extras. The first two Specials have also been reprinted and published in a single, large issue, and the following ones are going to follow this "two-in-one" format.

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

* PlanetLooters: The Evrons.

to:

* PlanetLooters: The Evrons.Evrons use weapons that drain all emotions from a sentient victim and convert them into energy (the will-less victims are then used for menial labor). However, since their whole infrastructure is built on using this emotional energy, and you can only ever drain one victim once, they are forced to conquer new planets constantly. Their own scientists know this is unsustainable, but few dare voice that opinion.



* PopularSayingBut: When the game gets tough... PK wishes he was somewhere else.

to:

* PlayAlongPrisoner: After a...[[LetsYouAndHimFight difficult first encounter]], Paperinik traps Xadhoom in a energy cage built specifically for her. Before he can explain that he doesn't want to fight her, some Evronians arrive and try to take both,only for Paperinik to kick their asses. Seeing this, Xadhoom is finally convinced they are on the same side... and then breaks the cage, explaining she only stayed inside it because she wanted to see if he was an ally or an enemy.
* PopularSayingBut: In the very first issue, when the titular hero is having a hard time defending a woman from the coolflames: "Don't worry! When the game gets tough... PK wishes he I wish I was somewhere else."



* PrisonEpisode: ''The Day That Will Come'', set inside the chronostatic prison Time Ø.

to:

* PrisonEpisode: ''The Except for a couple of flashbacks, the whole issue 36, "The Day That Will Come'', Come", is set inside in Time Zero, the chronostatic prison Time Ø.of the TimePolice, since Paperinik was ArrestedForHeroism... just in time for a jailbreak. It is one of the darkest issues of the series.

* KneelBeforeZod: Taken to extreme. Zoster does this to ''the whole universe'' after obtaining the powers of Xadhoom:
-->"On your knees, worlds! Kneel now! Or I'll erase you with a single gesture!".


Added DiffLines:

** Issue #20, "''Mekkano''": the eponymous machine, which can break down any other machine for parts and add it to itself, is picked up in Earth Orbit by an alien spaceship, which takes it back to their base. Never seen or mentioned again.
** Issue #24, "''Twilight''": the issue's BigBad [[spoiler:is offed in a NoOneCouldSurviveThat way]], just after proclaiming that [[spoiler:with the data from his analysis of Paperinik's SwissArmyWeapon, he will proceed to TakeOverTheWorld]]. Moreover, [[spoiler:before leaving to go back to his dimension, Paperinik gives Urk a device which can transmit across dimensions, "[[SequelHook In case you need help or something comes up]]."]] Neither plot points come up again.
** Issue #25, "''Crossfire''": Paperinik meets up with what is, essentially, LaResistance within the Evron Empire. They never show up again.
** Issue #40, "''A Single Breath''": it's pretty much stated outright in the ending that [[spoiler:the issue's BigBad, a NietzscheWannabe AGodAmI with almost unlimited PsychicPowers, has survived [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat being swept away by the wave caused by the collapse of a dam]].]] Where did he end up? No one knows.


Added DiffLines:

* MechanicalEvolution: In an issue, we know an alien race of robots. Their origin is unknown, but they're theorized either to descend from the computers of a ship who crashed on their planet, or to have evolved like every other race "only starting from microcircuits instead of microorganisms". Makes no sense, but [[MST3KMantra who cares]] as far as it [[RuleOfCool sounds so cool]]?

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: {{Averted}}: as One warns Paperinik about, even going to somewhere as close as Venus requires FTL to do so in reasonable times. And interstellar distances are so great that Xerbian colony ships, who ''are'' equipped with FTL drives and can make the ride from Xerba to Saturn in hours, have cryogenic chambers just in case.
