Keno Don Rosa is a big fan of Creator/CarlBarks who eventually got promoted to write the official [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Donald Duck]] stories in the spirit of ''The Good Duck Artist''. He is one of those rare few writers who have managed to make an excessive use of ContinuityPorn into great stories, and is widely regarded as one of the best things that ever happened to Disney comics.

** Although ducks also [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE_vE55I0M4 sometimes wag their tails]] when happy, so it's not that unusual.

-->'''Donald:''' I've had a bellyful of both you eternal fools! Year in, year out, you bring grief on yourselves all for the sake of '''getting''' rich, '''staying''' rich, or getting '''richer''' still! You'll '''never''' be happy, because you always worry about what you'll do '''next''' to complicate your '''own greedy lives!'''

** 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).
