* FanDisservice: An early scene offers a glimpse of duck boobs. Yes, in a PG movie. There is no logical reason for the movie to feature duck boobs, unless they thought [[FetishFuel someone, somewhere, would enjoy duck boobs]]. And even if somebody ''would'', they're ruined by the [[SpecialEffectFailure terrible]] [[UncannyValley duck effects]] and it just becomes even more disturbing as the fast-paced editing makes it look like the hand she's running over her knee in the bathtub is going down her stomach to [[ADateWithRosiePalms somewhere else]] as Howard begins to fly through.

* NonMammalMammaries: Again, duck tits.

* NonMammalMammaries: Again, duck tits. Howard's reaction to a knife nearly striking his groin implies that the "males variant" is also applicable.

* MarketBasedTitle: Universal released it as ''Howard - A New Breed Of Hero'' in some international territories (and also edited the end of Richard Kiley's opening narration where he says "In the beginning there was... Howard the Duck!" with the last three words coinciding with the title appearing on screen - the last two words are removed and "A New Breed Of Hero" laid over where "The Duck" would have appeared. Unfortunately it sounds as if he was cut off before he was finished speaking... which, of course, he was. [[TheyJustDidntCare But...]]).

** The Dark Overlord had earlier said he needed Beverly and Phil's bodies for other Dark Overlords to inhabit, so was probably deliberately using non-lethal methods on them as opposed to his full power.

* PlotArmor: One of the Dark Overlord's energy blasts is enough to instantly vaporize a police officer, yet he zaps Beverly and Phil ''four times'' at the climax, only managing to cause them to turn partly transparent, and then they [[NoOntologicalInertia immediately recover]] when Howard destroys him.
