* 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.

* DoingItForTheArt: Or more spesifically doing it for the story. Don Rosa has stated that he's actually not a big fan of drawing long pieces - it's ''telling a story'' that drives his motivation.

** "The Dream of a Lifetime" would originally have been a time-travel story, but Don Rosa realized he needed Scrooge to ''know'' who Donald and the new generation of Beagle Boys were when they visited his past, hence it turned into a dream-visit story instead.

* 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.
** Not true. 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.
