* In "Crash Reunion", it's established that Megavolt's real identity, Elmo Sputterspark, has been missing ever since his senior prom. While a fairly minor detail, one has to wonder just what his parents have been going through all these years.

* Pollen is the plant equivalent of sperm. So when Bushroot does his dandruff attack does that mean he's basically masturbating at whoever is the recipient?

* In "Dead Duck", Darkwing's death was [[ItWasAllADream just a dream]], but that means Megavolt was never defeated.

** Which is very obvious considering that the bottle of this substance had a skull and crossbones painted on it.



** Since there was no mention of any ill-effects on any of the characters it can be speculated that they absorb the metal immediately.

** In the one episode that he appeared for a few seconds he was shown as bloodthirsty enough to try to use a buzzsaw on DW and LP.

* One of the running themes of the show is that DarkIsNotEvil. Darkwing being the prime example, but Morgana is also a "night person". It might not occur to the viewer how much they wanted to drive that theme home until he/she realizes that some of the villains are the other half of the analogy: Megavolt, one of the most dangerous criminals in St. Canard, is [[LightIsNotGood constantly surrounded by light]] and Negaduck's costume is bright yellow and red. His cape is black, but it's lined with bright red.

* A seemingly minor plot point in "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E9WaterWayToGo Water Way to Go]]" actually plays into the episode's {{Aesop}}. Launchpad shows the ability to ride a surfboard, something never seen before. However, watchers who came to ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' will remember Launchpad occasionally showing that ability there.[[note]]Of course, this requires ignoring Tad Stones' statement that they're alternate universes.[[/note]] It's not that [[SuddenlyAlwaysKnewThat Launchpad has spontaneously developed a new ability]]; it's that ''Darkwing'' has never thought that inventorying his abilities would be worthwhile. What was the episode's moral? That Darkwing needs to have faith in his sidekick and not disrespect him just because of his role.

*** As Darkwing's MirrorUniverse counterpart, [=NegaDuck=] truly is Darkwing's opposite in much the same way the ''Star Trek'' mirror characters were the prime universe characters' opposites: in some, but not all aspects. In the aspects where they're not opposites, Darkwing and [=NegaDuck=] are in fact exactly the same; and one of those aspects is that Darkwing had an obsessive attention to detail that allowed him to track a small and needlessly complicated clue to [=NegaDuck=]'s lair... while [[FailedASpotCheck overlooking the big black Fearsome Five flag [=NegaDuck=] had hoisted over the same building]]. The reason [=NegaDuck=] failed to realize where Darkwing Duck lives as a civilian? Both ducks are bound by the same RuleOfFunny, and they both have the tendency to overlook the screamingly obvious while searching for an insanely complicated solution from an obscure clue.

* The [[Creator/AynRand Objectivist]] themes surrounding [[Creator/CarlBarks Scrooge McDuck]] spilled over into [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales his show's]] SpiritualSuccessor - it's all about a protagonist with "an ego the size of a small planet" whose motive power is not altruism but personal pride and a pathological need for action.

* The DevolutionDevice used by Dr. Fossil which turns people into dinosaurs makes sense to a certain extent: in this universe, most people are ''anthropomorphic birds'', and birds evolved from dinosaurs (although not the species seen in this show).
