* TemptingFate: A constant source of humor. Taken to a hilarious extreme in "Bad Luck Duck," where a disbelieving Darkwing is struck with a bad luck curse, and [constantly practically dares the universe to prove it. [[ChewToy It does.]]

* DummiedOut: Rare not Video Game example, villain Anna Matronic was created as possible enemy for Darkwing but never showed up in any episode aside from a brief crowd cameo during "In Like Blunt". She ended up having few appearances in books and comics.

** In rare case of characters reffering to previous episodes of actual show, Herb mentions in "Slaves of Fashion" that he saved Darkwing Duck once (which could be a reference to "You Sweat Your Life" or "The Merchant of Menace").

*** One episode had Darkwing completely give up crime fighting, in fear of dying and leaving Gosalyn alone (or worse, being raised by Launchpad)

* 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.

''Darkwing Duck'' was a superhero cartoon produced by Creator/{{Disney}} that ran from 1991 to 1995. It followed the adventures of a masked duck, who was somewhere between Franchise/{{Batman}}, ComicBook/{{Sandman|MysteryTheatre}}, Franchise/TheGreenHornet and Radio/TheShadow, parodying many superheroic tropes and characters along the way. Nevertheless, it was one of Disney's DarkerAndEdgier series (not as much as ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'', but it did go places that most of Disney's works wouldn't dream of going), fondly remembered for things like total aversion of NeverSayDie and an episode featuring ''{{Satan}}'' (albeit a comical version) as the MonsterOfTheWeek (though that episode ended up getting banned from syndication).

* GroundedForever: When Honker is held responsible for an art theft that was actually committed by the villain of the week, his parents ground him in his room. His father makes a list of things Honker isn't allowed to have, including going out, having friends over, watching television, and [[DisproportionateRetribution sunlight, food, and water]]. His wife points out that those last few items are a bit excessive. Later, Herb grounds Honker for life as soon as he's bailed out of jail, only to change it to ten years when Binkie complains.

* MostDefinitelyNotAccompanyingUs: Every episode, darkwing tries to get Gosalyn to stay safe at home while he goes after the bad guy... and every episode, he fails.

* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: Surprisingly averted in "Comic Book Capers". Despite DW being the writer of his comic, everyone tends to stay in-character.
