Magnum Opus has been declared In Universe Examples Only per TRS.
Rosa is known for his quirky drawing style and epic storylines, best exemplified by ''Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'', his personal MagnumOpus. Since Uncle Scrooge is his favorite character, Rosa's longest and best stories deal with the [[AntiHero complex]] and BadAss elder duck. His drawing style stems from his education in architecture and technical drawing, with no formal education in art.

* OrWasItADream: In "The Duck Who Never Was", Donald has such bad luck on his birthday that he [[ItsAWonderfulPlot wishes he were never born]] after running into a GenieInABottle. After seeing that virtually everyone is worse off without him and that Duckburg has become a hellhole, he corrects his mistake by wishing everything back. He wakes up and assumes it was all a dream, but after he leaves the museum the genie shows up one last time.

to:
* [[ComicBook/TheBlackKnight The Black Knight Glorps Again!Again!]]

* FunnyForeigner: Arpin Lusene, together with FunetikAksent. -->'''Arpin Lusene''': Ah am truly ze master thif! -->'''Donald''': "Thif"? -->'''Arpin Lusene''': Not "thif", you iddy-ott! '''Thif!'''

* GentlemanThief: Arpin Lusene

* ImpossibleThief: Arpin Lusene.

* MonumentalTheft: Arpin Lusene steals a whole viking ship while nude.

* NighInvulnerability: Arpin Lusène, aka ''[[BlackKnight Le Chevalier Noir]]'', was the most dangerous foe Scrooge ever faced. Already a master thief, he inadvertently stole Gyro Gearloose's Universal Solvent before using it to cover a black suit of armor coated in diamond paint (the one material impervious to the solvent), making him invulnerable. He could walk through walls, shrug of having buildings thrown on top of him, and even take a bath in an acid pool by soaking it up like a sponge.

** In his two stories, people not understanding everything FrenchJerk Arpin Lusene says, particularly "mooney bean" (money bin).

** In "The Black Knight Glorps Again!", Scrooge has pictures of himself from his Yukon days drawn by his "favorite artist". The pictures are none other than Creator/CarlBarks'.

* WorthyOpponent: Scrooge and Arpin Lusene.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Deconstructed in "Super Snooper Strikes Again!". Donald briefly becomes a FlyingBrick after chugging down some AppliedPhlebotinum, and makes several attempts to impress his nephews with his new powers. He tries to travel around the world in an instant, but realizes that he still perceives the passage of time normally despite everyone else effectively being frozen in time while he's moving around at superspeed, so the task could take him several months or even ''years'' to complete, and nobody would notice anyway. He also tries to use his superstrength to lift both a mountain and a sunken cruise ship, but the mountain starts falling apart at the base and the ship breaks in two due to years of rust decay to the hull. * RunningGag: In ''The Sign of the Triple Distelfink'', something implausibly unlucky for Gladstone happens, prompting a character to say "What are the odds of that?", to which Gladstone becomes increasingly more annoyed.

* GenreSavvy: When the Ducks are pursued by a hungry Spinosaurus in ''Escape From Forbidden Valley'', Uncle Scrooge suggests taking a shortcut over a cliff across an old wooden log. His nephews immediately dismiss the idea and snark that the last movie their uncle has watched was probably at a 1904 science expo.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: ** Especially "What did Scrooge and Goldie do [[http://cdn.zocoi.com/211/31.jpg in that shack]] [[http://cdn.zocoi.com/211/32.jpg that one night?]]", found in his own commentary. ** The "Life And Times Of Scrooge [=McDuck=]" in general [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Radar/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck has its own page.]] ** In "The Three Caballeros Ride Again", a character named Alfonso tells his girlfriend Rosa, while taking off his shoes that "... tonight I came to town for ''another'' reason, chichita!" with Rosa suggestively raising an eyebrow and asking him "Oh, Alfonso... do you mean...?" To her disappointment however, Alfonso is talking about watching his favorite tv show. No, ''Life and Times'' wasn't the only one. *** Sort of a RunningGag in the story is Donald's friends, Josè and Panchito, alluding to Donald's "skirt-chasing" days, with Donald very anxiously telling them to be quiet as Daisy might hear them (even though she's in another country.) *** Josè apparently has a reputation on him for fooling around with women in relationships. ** In "A Little Something Special", the Beagle Boys have been given magic spells by Magica giving them the appearances of Donald's family. The Beagle Boy disguised as Gladstone attempts to threaten Mrs. Quackfaster when Magica's wand is broken and the disguises are lost. As is Disney ducks tradition, Gladstone's outfit leaves the Beagle Boy with no pants, causing Quackfaster to scream as she glances down at his lower half and subsequently faints. --> '''Beagle Boy''': Oops! How embarrassing! Sorry, lady! ** A Beagle Boy disguised as one of Donald's nephews attempts to act normal by asking Donald something [[ActingUnnatural in an overly sweet manner]], causing Donald to ask if someone had "slipped these kids any silly-pills at that party?" ** In "Trash or Treasure", Donald finds what looks like a 1927 French ''pin-up calendar'' among Scrooge's belongings. Scrooge looks at a picture and becomes ''extremely'' excited: --> '''Scrooge:''' Look at "July"! Hubba-hubba-'''''hubba!''''' --> '''Donald:''' Wow! Let ''me'' see! --> ''(he looks and is disappointed, though not surprised, to find what is actually featured)'' --> '''Donald:''' "Beautiful ''banks'' of France" [...] (meanwhile, Scrooge continues looking at the pictures, sweating and shouting "Ooo La La!")
