* Donald's feats of strength during his temper tantrums are not unusual, rather, they are ''inherited'' from the [=McDuck=] Clan he is descended from, just like his Uncle Scrooge, who has once gotten angry enough to rip apart heavy steel chains when some crooked people made fun of his family and made light of the fact that one of his relatives had just passed away, after which he proceeded to start giving those folks a thorough thrashing, the resulting violence ripping apart the ship he was being held prisoner on. He has also gotten angry enough to fight off entire mobs of rival gold prospectors, and completely shrugged off their attempts to murder him with dynamite.

* There are heavy implications that Donald's post-World War II personality change (becoming more short-tempered and prone to violence) are symptoms of his having PTSD as a result of his service in the Pacific Front in the Disney {{Wartime Cartoon}}s. In a pre-war comic, Donald tries to catch a thief stealing his food with a camera trap, and it turned out to be himself sleepwalking. When the same thing happened years later after the war, [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/439086-ruined-childhood his nephews tried to wake him from sleepwalking with a firecracker prank]]. Donald promptly has a flashback to his duty in the Pacific Front, freaks out at the "Japanese-laid minefield and ambush", and throws some things at his nephews (Which in his rather frantic state he perceives to be grenades that he's flinging at Japanese soldiers).

** There's also the fact that Daisy is actually ''the second choice'': the first choice would be Reginella... But every time, something forces our alien queen to separate herself from Donald.

* Why has Donald always endured in popularity while other classic Disney characters tend to wax and wane? First of all, he has plenty of human faults - a rotten temper, kinda lazy, being a bit of a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerk (albeit with a good heart)]], and very outgoing and friendly once he stops speaking {{Angrish}}. He's also been the one character that kept reinventing himself with the times, willing to try anything he thinks looks like fun. [[TheSeventies Disco dancing duck?]] Yup. [[TheEighties Showing up with a video camera and an Aloha shirt a decade later?]] He's game. Two decades and change later, and [[Franchise/KingdomHearts he's still reinventing himself]].

In short Donald's continued popularity is ''because'' of his foibles and changes. Donald is the most human Disney character and the most like ourselves, a true everyman.
