** Tropers/TommyTiger: I usually love Creator/CarlBarks' comics, but there's something I hate: In ''Where There's Smoke'' (No, [[IThoughtYouMeant it hasn't got anything to do with]] HotelMario), Huey, Dewey or Louie (I forgot who it was) said he wasn't annoyed by Donald dropping foam on them (because Donald thinks that [[TitleDrop where there's smoke]], there's fire), but because [[{{Jerkass}} he would get the badge instead of them]]. [[WhatTheHellHero Like holy fuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie]]. As [[TeenTitans Raven]] would say, [[SarcasmMode Bravo.]] And bravo to you too, Carl Barks. Why would we root for HD&L? They were being [[ItsAllAboutMe frustratingly self-centered]]. Now you've made the comic version of Huey, Dewey and Louie [[TheScrappy very annoying]] [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic and unlikeable.]] [[FromBadToWorse And as if that wasn't bad enough]], Huey, Dewey and Louie [[KarmaHoudini get their badge at the end.]] Scooby-Freaking-Dooby-Doo. This use of StatusQuoIsGod is on par with its use in JohnnyTest. It would have been fine if Donald got his badge, but no! Huey, Dewey and Louie must always be right.

* WhyNotNow: Seriously? No one's even bothered to mention the brief Wizard comic issue from 2002 that actually depicts Goku beating Superman? Not that this troper is against the idea of Superman losing to Goku, he probably would, but that he didn't even have to go [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] or use some of his best techniques solely for the purpose of [[CurbStompBattle handing Superman his ass on a silver platter]] is just the ultimate crowning moment of EpicFail and an insult worthy of the DeathBattle Goku vs. Superman DMOS to the respective fans for both the DC and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' franchises.

* {{NTroper}}: The Donald Duck Brazilian comic story known as "Na Marca do pênalti", which roughly translates itself to "On penalty's edge", AKA [[TheSimpsons Boys of Bummer]] taken to the most ridiculous extreme possible. To elaborate, a soccer team sponsored by Scrooge is facing a team sponsored by Rockerduck. Winner earns the respective sponsors the rights to business during the next World Cup in Germany and the transmission rights. Donald is playing for Scrooge's team and has to shoot a penalty as everyone else is injured in one way or another, no matter how ridiculous the injury is (headache and calluses, for one). Donald has to shoot, despite telling he's a terrible shooter. The DrillSergeantNasty coach tells Donald to stop wussing out and score, and that if they lose, it's Donald's fault. Then, Donald trips and loses the penalty, and what follows is one of the most disgusting KickTheDog moments Duckburg could offer. ''Everyone'' in the team starts blaming Donald and insulting him, telling he should have let someone else shoot, despite everyone cowardly backing out earlier in the game, not letting Donald ride the Team Bus back home, Scrooge calling Donald ingrate and telling him he'll work to repay all the money he'd have earned in Germany, taxists refusing to let Donald in, passerbys saying they want Donald's head. Then, when Donald tries seeking Daisy for comfort, Daisy cusses him out for having the nerve to visit her after his defeat ruined her party and then ditches him for Gladstone again, and for extra measure, Gladstone tells Donald "You're here too? Why don't you go home?". And finally, when Donald makes it home, the Beagle Boys empty Donald's house as compensation for them losing a bet they made on his team. Not even the reveal it was just Donald's daydream and the following daydream of how nice things would go for him if he scores, ending with Donald not being afraid of anything and just going for the shoot is enough to make up for this utterly ridiculous first act.

* Tropers/DaddyMulk: from the Italian comic book ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'', the moment that showed this series has [[JumpTheShark jumped the shark]]. ChuckNorris shows up and kills Rat-Man's enemy. No, it's not bad because it's another example of lame Website/ChuckNorrisFacts, it's bad because it killed any seriousness and credibility of not only the story, but the entire narrative arc had up to that point. You see, the robot Rat-Man was going to face was presented as a credible threat, and Rat-Man was so terrified of it that, to avoid confrontation (the robot was programmed to kill any superhero he'd meet) he dropped for the first time in the series his costume and decided he no longer was a hero. Sure, it was another example of the BrickJoke (ab)used by author Leo Ortolani (in an earlier story it shows as a gag that, every time Rat-Man picks up a book, he can't read it because Chuck Norris asks him to fight bad guys), but you can't ruin the mood of three issues just for the sake of a lame sight gag. Way to go, Leo.
