* OldShame: An odd example--Rosa actually regrets having Scrooge smash a steamship to bits with his bare hands as he feels it skews more towards violent superhero comics than his usual fare.

It was some of Don Rosa's readers who reacted to ''King of the Klondike'' and wondered if he was trying to add underlying superhero abilities to Scrooge, because of the popularity of superhero comics at the time, which was never Don Rosa's intention, and he was mostly amused by the misunderstanding.

* AccidentallyAccurate: Whether Rosa meant it or not, we can't be certain, but his depiction of the Whiskervilles dashing harmlessly across quicksand in their panic in "The Last of Clan McDuck" is scientifically accurate, as quicksand is a non-Newtonian fluid, meaning that one can run across it without sinking into it.
