*** The writers came up with the idea of a spin-off set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, featuring Gosalyn as either a teenager or young adult, and featuring her own superhero alter-ego, Quiverwing Quack (who had previously appeared on Darkwing, and was a ComicBook/GreenArrow parody, right down to the trick arrows). It never got past the planning stages.

The character was briefly mentioned in the Boom Studios comic, as the daughter of an alternate universe Darkwing who was killed in action, leading that Darkwing to take on the persona in honor of her.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As mentioned in the ShoutOut entry on the main page, the original pitch for the show was very different. It was originally going to be a Film/JamesBond spoof called ''Double-O Duck'', with Drake Mallard as a globe-trotting spy working for SHUSH. All the villains were going to be agents of FOWL (Fiendish Organization of World Larceny) with Steelbeak overseeing them as the show's {{big bad}}. Eventually the concept was combined with ideas from a superhero-based ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode and became ''Darkwing Duck''. DW sometimes does missions for SHUSH as a freelance agent, so some of the spy elements survive. FOWL occasionally pops up but only two of the show's dozen or so recurring villains actually work for the organization, and it's run by [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness three unknown shadowy figures.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfOrder: Like most of the Disney cartoons of the time, the episodes weren't shown in the order they were written. But because of the superhero format of the series, villain origin stories were shown after episodes they appeared.

*** "Double-O-Duck"? That was the name of an episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' where Launchpad went undercover as a spy. Heck, Launchpad's TuxedoAndMartini was the basis of Derek Blunt's costume. "Double-O-Duck"/Double Duck latyer became Donald Duck's spy name in Donald Duck comics.
*** FOWL was ''in that episode,'' and its leader at the time was apparently KilledOffForReal, letting "High Command" take over by the time of Darkwing Duck.

*** There were also several episodes planned that never got produced, due to Creator/{{ABC}} and Creator/{{Disney}} cancelling after season 3, but before season 4 made it past planning including the return of such baddies as Paddywhack and the original [=NegaDuck=]. [[spoiler: The cyborged Taurus Bulba has made a reappearance at the end of comic #3.]]
*** With the series undergoing a {{revival}} by way of a return to the comic book medium, it's possible that most of these plans will be given a second chance.
*** [[spoiler: Indeed, it looks like Paddywhack is coming back around issue #8...]]



** There were plans for an episode where DW and Evil Twin Negaduck had to team up to defeat a somehow revived Manifest Dark Side Negaduck.



** There were originally plans for a Crossover with ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' on the show. Thought it ended up not happening, Chip & Monty's voices can be heard in "Twitching Channels", as a ShoutOut.
