* Paperinik (DonaldDuck's superhero/antihero alter ego) is also knows as the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Devilish Avenger]] (from which the English name Duck Avenger). Notable because he came up with it himself, and it caught on after he used it in public off-screen.
** While not a superhero, Fantomius, who created the legacy that prompted Donald to become Paperinik, was known as the GentlemanThief, as he decided that the best way to fight [[VillainWithGoodPublicity thieves parading as gentlemen]] was to become a gentleman disguised as a thief-and so had "Fantomius-Gentleman Thief" printed on the {{Calling Card}}s he leaves at the site of every heist.
