If you take the episode 'A Star is Scorn' as canon, then Darkwing is just an actor, and all of his crime-fighting adventures aren't real. We see DW make cameos in Bonkers, so maybe Bonkers takes place in Rockwell's world.

[[WMG: All of DW's gadgets were created by Gyro]]
Can you really buy DW creating those super hero gadgets himself?

** Alternately, Drake ''says'' that his middle name starts with '''W''', whether it does or not.



He's often jokingly labeled a narcissist, but in all seriousness, D.W. can't literally be suffering from Narcissism because he ''does'' have the ability to feel empathy, admit he's wrong, admit he needs help, and has morals. The constant need for attention and mass approval and emotional outbursts would more likely be the result of Borderline Personality Disorder. Any one of DarkWing's possible origin stories could easily have caused this, especially the theory about him being Scrooge's unwanted son.
* Someone online pointed out in defense of this theory that in "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E9WaterWayToGo Water Way to Go]]", Darkwing says he's "manic-depressive", which used to be the term for Borderline Personality Disorder.

[[WMG: Launchpad's brain never completely returned to normal after "Heavy Mental."]]
Hotshot and Flygirl, both of whom were exposed to the same ray as Launchpad, appeared later in the comics with their powers intact. However, Launchpad [[HowDoIShotWeb had so much trouble controlling his superpowers]] that he decided it was easier not to try to use them. This could also serve as an alternate explanation for why he was the only one to pick up on the aliens' psychic transmissions in "Twin Beaks" -- his brain had already been altered along psychic lines.

Oh come on, let's face it! [=NegaDuck=], a vicious and evil tyrant of his own universe, who hates everything cute, just so happens to allow a cute, primpy, goody goody, whose not even a remotely a trouble maker, to live with him in his own house. Not to mention, that Gosalyn herself never actually said [=NegaDuck=] did anything bad to her. In fact, Gosalyn seems to actually praise [=NegaDuck=]'s presence. Sure she was glad Darkwing was there, but she may have been implying the negaverse in general. [=NegaDuck=] didn't seem to hate Gosalyn, just annoyed with her attitude. He maybe, just maybe, actually cared for her in his own way.

* Oswald's Wasteland is said to be where the forgotten Disney characters are now trapped, and this likely applied to the ''Darkwing Duck'' characters between 1996 (when ''DisneyAdventures'' ran its last ''Darkwing'' comic story) and the publication of the new comic, though since Launchpad made a few new appearances in the ''Uncle Scrooge'' comic book, perhaps he was trapped for only a short time (this may also explain why, in the new comic, he and Drake haven't been speaking to each other). Now that they're back, they likely found a way out, but they haven't been able to make it known to the other Disney TV characters.

* He was a bit of an accident, Scrooge didn't want it being discovered so he discreetly gave a technically small portion of his fortune to care for the kid and compensate. This is why he is able to afford all the gadgets, vehicles, and doesn't seem to have a real job.

It also explains DarkWing's general bitterness, knowing his father never wanted him, and/or simply inheriting that trait from Scrooge.

Of course, we know that they're straight (or bi), as both have been attracted to women. But their neighbors don't necessarily know that. (Until they meet Morganna, which must have seemed a bit confusing.) The Muddlefoots just assume they have a gay family living next door.

[[WMG: The reason why Scrooge disposed of Quackwerks the way he did...]]
[[spoiler: Launchpad [=McQuack=]]] seems to be a really bizarre choice for the head of any corporation. [[spoiler: He's a ditz, he's got more of an Action Hero side than any sort of business acumen,]] and he doesn't even have much of an interest in money. But on closer thought, that last aspect might be Scrooge's reason for putting him in charge. Scrooge already has Flintheart Glomgold to deal with back in Duckburg; he wouldn't want another CorruptCorporateExecutive to deal with in St. Canard. [[spoiler: Launchpad]] isn't subject to GoldFever, so he can be counted on to [[HonestCorporateExecutive not do anything crooked with the company]], which is what Scrooge would have wanted.

He is continuously referred to as a dinosaur. [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131222083211/disney/images/8/8c/Fossil.png Look at him,]] he is a [[PteroSoarer pterosaur]]! His device is a Retro-Evolution Gun that turns people into dinosaurs. Listen to that. It is a ''Retro-Evolution'' Gun, and since he is a pterosaur (''[[ArtisticLicensePaleontology and not a dinosaur!]]'') he ''couldn't'' be a paleontologist duck, or any {{CivilizedAnimal}} for that matter, since pterosaurs are a species that left no descendants (reminder: a '''Retro-Evolution''' Gun!).
