** The premise of Barks's "The Golden Helmet" (considered one of his best work) the MacGuffin has, due to [[FindersRulers an old law]], theoretically power over all of North America. It is an ArtifactOfAttraction that turns everyone who carries it long enough into a greedy and power-hungry egomaniac. It even corrupts Donald and (very briefly) Huey. It's even scarier than [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings the One Ring]], as there is nothing supernatural in it - its creator had no idea how dangerous it could be, and basically the idea that one who wears it rules America [[HumansAreBastards is enough to drive anyone into a]] FaceHeelTurn. The story doesn't end until it's tossed into the ocean. In Rosa's "The Lost Charts Of Columbus", the Helmet is rediscovered, and this time Donald fails to get rid of it before the media gets to see it. Yet in that story, it's turned from the Ring [[UnbuiltTrope before the Ring]] into just another artifact museums are full of. Basically, the plot boils down to the Ducks deconstructing the law itself, arguing that it is the most insane example of Western imperialism in history. Eventually, older and older artifacts are found, until UN eventually declares all the artifacts worthless in determining who rules America, and United States, Canada and Mexico keep their independence. The Duckburg Museum eventually manages to buy all the artifacts and their associated stuff. Basically, the sequel made the characters' actions original story out be completely pointless.

* StockholmSyndrome: Played with in "Escape from Forbbiden Valley", where Donald finds himself abducted by a large female dinosaur mistaking him for her baby. Despite not having appreciated her ... unusual treatment of him, he feels very sorry for her seeing how sad she is when he gets saved, and makes sure to give her a real dinosaur egg to care for (while also allowing our heroes their escape).

** In ''The Once and Future Duck'' Scrooge and co. travel back in time and meet King Arthur, the legendary knight in shining armor! Except it's not Arthur, it's the barbarian warlord Arturius, who the legend was ''based'' on, who promptly tries to kill them all.

Rosa is known for his quirky drawing style and epic storylines, best exemplified by ''Comicbook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck''. 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.
