It was Main/{{Moviebob}} who pointed out that in the Negaverse, Negaduck apparently owns the counterpart of the Mallard house, because Nega-Gosalyn lives there. So he must know, or at least suspect, where Darkwing lives. So why not do something about it? Are you telling me that Negaduck of all people would hold back from flattening a suburban home just because his arch-nemesis might ''not'' live there?

** But, at least in this particular show, is canonical that humans do not exists in the same world. Darkwing is shocked when he sees humans for the first time in Twitching Channels.

* He tended to plan more often and was a better strategist, they usually had a better measure of success following him..aside from the psycho aspect.

** If DW can beat Liquidator then so can Negaduck and Negaduck is willing to kill him. Negaduck might not know how yet but i'm betting he'd find a way if Liquidator pissed him off.

* Going for another angle, Darkwing Duck is derived from two characters... primarily Radio/TheShadow, but taking bits and pieces from Franchise/{{Batman}} as well. Lamont Cranston had a personal fortune that, while not excessive, was plenty to keep him in nice cars, secret lairs, and all the bullets he could use. If Darkwing trends closer to Lamont, he's probably the last son of a wealthy family that spends most of his money on his crimefighting. If he trends closer to Bruce, he could be the last son of one of the families that founded St. Canard... that could lend credence to why he considers it "his" city, and why he's living in the bridge tower... his family might have been the ones that ''built'' the bridge. Either one doesn't even necessarily rule out the new comic, either... Drake may not have been managing his family's investments well, and after all the money he spent on being Darkwing Duck and making a life for Gosalin, his Shush stipend may have been important for day-to-day expenses.

** Not too sure about the "made of infinte water" part. In "Just Us Justice Ducks" when Bushroot and Liquidator attack the police station, Liquidator becomes larger and creates a miniature tsunami to attack the police while using no other outside water source.

** Probably the above since the original Gizmosuit was destroyed in the WesternAnimation/DuckTales episode ''The Metal Mites'' and later Fenton comments he's going to get Gyro to build him a new one.

* The ''Comic/DuckTales'' comics definitely imply (sometimes almost to the point of stating outright) that Launchpad skips back and forth between St. Canard and Duckburg.



** [[spoiler: He also could have just been temporally fired when Fenton came to visit (like in "Hero for Hire" and "The Right Duck") and has actually been balancing the two the whole time.]]

* People tend to confuse WordOfGod with canon. In reality WordOfGod is only the creator's opinion which can be wrong, a personal theory, feeling, etc., but not necessarily canonical. In this particular case seems to be that case as a lot of things shows the opposite; that both settings (and probably Talespin) are shared. Especially because we do see cameos of several Ducktale's villains in DW and Launchpad actually mentions that he knew Gizmoduck from Duckburg.

** Its probably less of a question about how objectively dark the show could get and more of a question about upsetting specifically religious circles with the whole sell my soul to Satan in exchange for magic plot.

Not sure gift wrapping my evil twin for the police is a good idea. If I was Darkwing, I would worry about cops unmasking him, and discovering that the notorious serial killer Negaduck is really Drake Mallard. Then again, this is a universe where cops arrest you and immediately send you to prison with your costume on.

* Mallard is not Bruce Wayne, he's a middle class single dad living in a generic suburban area. The cops are not going to know who he is just by unmasking Negaduck.

** Now that you mentioned it, the other episodes were down right creepy. For example, they showed Bushroot's dead corpse TWICE on the "Twin Beaks" episode. Let's not forget the last scene of "Dances with Bigfoot" implies that Launchpad is about to be thrown into the volcano off-screen. The ominous music at the end didn't help either.

[[WMG:Darkwing is not worried about cops unmasking Negaduck in jail?]]

What standards did they use to ban "Hot Spells" that allowed "Dead Duck" to pass unscathed? The devil appears in both -- was the "Dead Duck" version under some acceptable limit of screen time while the "Hot Spells" version was over it? "Dead Duck" says the word "dead," "death," "kill," or "murder" about every 30 seconds; you'd think that if any episode was deemed too dark for kids, ''that'' would be the one. What about "Hot Spells" made it the only one dark enough to never be allowed to air again?
