* EvilCounterpart: In the comic book adaptation of the movie, once the Dark Overlord is purged from Dr. Jennings' body, he takes on the form of an anthropomorphic duck, using this form to attack Howard. Averted in the movie as the Dark Overlord does no such thing and its true form is revealed to be a giant-mawed scorpion like creature.

* DumbBlonde: Beverly does not appear to be well informed. Bear in mind that she's human and until meeting Howard had no idea there even was anyone living on other worlds.

* 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...]]).
