* (If we're ignoring Mr. Stones' word about the universes being separate) remember who Launchpad spent a lot of time around before coming to St. Canard (and, if you believe the [[ComicBook/DuckTales comics]], still spends time around) -- Gyro Gearloose, the Duckverse's resident GadgeteerGenius. It's possible he would have learned enough to make something as impressive as the Thunderquack, especially given that his interests stay in the single field of Aeronautics, as opposed to Gyro, whose inventions vary from bubble gum to robotics.

[[WMG:Shared universes discontinuities]]
According to comic book ComicBook/TheLegendOfTheChaosGod four shows happen in the same universe; Talespin, Darkwing Duck, Ducktales and WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers. I get the first three (although I wonder how is that Talespin is so diverse as we see anthropomorphic animals of every species meanwhile DW/DT only have anthropomorphic birds, dogs and pigs, but anyway), but how can Rescue Rangers be in the same universe? Not only that contradicts episode Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E40TwitchingChannels that shows Rescue Rangers to be a parallel universe to Darkwing’s but also makes no sense. Humans exists in the Rescue Ranger’s world and they are the dominant species, sentient animals like rodents, cats and dogs just keep TheMasquerade, so is impossible for Rescue Rangers to be in the same world that Darkwing and Scrooge.

* 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.

Huh? I don't see Launchpad [=McQuack=] as a Gadget Hackwrench type of character. Wasn't he just a pilot? What amazes me is that he built it BEFORE meeting Darkwing and SHUSH.

* Or maybe, since the Negaverse is the dark mirror version of Darkwing's world, whatever happens in one happens to the other. If Negaduck bombed Drake Mallard's house, then his own house in the Negaverse would be destroyed.

* I think we're forgetting the other half of the smoke trick. Disappearing in smoke is easy, it's when he just plain ''appears'' in the middle of a room. If I recall, he appeared in a bank vault one time!

* Given that Duckburg, Gizmoduck, and Scrooge clearly exist even in the cartoon universe ("Fenton and I used to work for the same guy"), I vote for the party that says that particular WordOfGod is what makes no sense. I don't even know ''why'' he would say that -- fans have always loved the characters from both shows existing together and treating them as set in the same world.

* The conflict of "Toys Czar us" was Drake trying to balance crime-fighting with being "the perfect parent." The first act thus consisted on him constantly running between crime-fighting and home, trying to do both jobs, completely oblivious to how each was distracting him from the other. Then, out of the blue, as they're leaving a crime scene after a fight, Launchpad says, "If anything ever happened to you, I'd raise Gos as if she were my own." This is the ''very first time in the episode'' where Darkwing considers that possibility. Up until then, he'd just been thinking of his super hero work as something that had the potential to encroach on the time and attention he believed he needed to give Gosalyn. Now, he suddenly realizes he not only has to worry about not letting crime-fighting steal his attention from her ''but'' about it killing him. He wasn't frightened by the prospect of specifically Launchpad raising his daughter but by the prospect of Gosalyn not having him (Drake) there to take care of her ''at all'': "What if something ''did'' happen to me? Then Gos would ''really'' be out a perfect parent!" You can't do a good job if your other job kills you. The frightening part of Launchpad's statement wasn't "I'd raise Gos as if she were my own" but "If anything happened to you." He subsequently quit crime-fighting from a vow to live up to that Perfect Parent ideal he'd gotten in his head, from the fear of Gosalyn not having him around to be her Perfect Parent, not from horror at anything particular about Launchpad's parenting skills.



According to "Word of God" , Darkwing is set in an alternate universe, away from Ducktales. This makes sense since the F.O.W.L in Ducktales is different from the one in Darkwing Duck, and both Launchpads behave differently. Does that mean that there is no Darkwing Duck in the Ducktales universe, and their universe is screwed since the only super hero we see is Gizmo Duck?
