* EvilerThanThou: When the original Negaduck becomes supercharged as an energy-throwing, telekinetic PersonOfMassDestruction, his creator Megavolt is looking forward to all the crimes they'll commit together. Negaduck scoffs at him and says that committing crimes is small potatoes, but [[OmnicidalManiac complete destruction of everything]] is what he's really into.

** While Quackerjack himself is a VillainousHarlequin, he's far more comedic and ineffectual than the MonsterClown Paddywhack, who is an intangible demon who feeds on fear. Eventually Paddywhack puts Quackerjack in his place and seals him inside his own magic box.

There was also a [[SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames well-received]] video game adaptation released for the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem and UsefulNotes/{{Gameboy}} by Creator/{{Capcom}} that was effectively a shorter VideoGame/MegaManClassic clone. There was also a UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16 game that was...[[TheProblemWithLicensedGames less well received.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Quackerjack's plan was crazy, but this can actually work, as a sane part of a broader economy. Henry Ford famously paid his workers well so that they would be able to afford Ford automobiles of their own, for example.

** The episode ''Beauty and the Beet'' has been called by Main/Wikipedia as the darkest episode of the show and for a good reason. It has elements of a Sci-Fi and a horror story with Bushroot mutating himself into a half plant half duck monstrosity and snapping after being emotionally abused and violently murdering his enemies. And apart from a few puns during an autopsy scene all this is played grimly straight.

* UnexpectedlyDarkEpisode: ''Darkwing Duck'' may have been ''much'' DarkerAndEdgier by the standards of TheDisneyAfternoon, but it's a Disney show; even with the characters averting NeverSayDie and really dark things happening it's still lighthearted and comedic by most shows' standards. Then we get "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E50TimeAndPunishment Time and Punishment]]", an episode in which Gosalyn visits a BadFuture caused by Darkwing reinventing himself as a KnightTemplar after she disappeared. While Darkwarrior had a fairly humorous ideal (based largely on DisproportionateRetribution for crimes like jaywalking) the episode he was in, for the most part, took itself seriously.

* CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Darkwing frequently gets irritated by Launchpad's CloudCuckoolander tendencies. However, he's not happy when it looks like he might leave the planet in "U.F. Foe" and some kind of danger threatening to take Launchpad away from him will provoke a mad dash to protect his sidekick. Launchpad's relationship to Darkwing is not an example, as he's much more easygoing and rarely gets irritated with him.



* CatchphraseInterruptus: Happens every other time DW does his "I Am The Terror" schtick.

Armed with only a gas gun and a massive ego, Darkwing battled a RoguesGallery of villains and defended the city of Saint Canard -- all while providing his own narration.

** Launchpad mentions he and Fenton used to to "work for the same guy". However it's never explained why Launchpad stopped working for Scrooge and ended up in St Canard.

** There is another evil counterpart of Darkwing known as Darkwarrior Duck from a BadFuture. Gosalyn disappears when she accidentally hitches a ride with the time travel device that took her to Darkwarrior's time. The loss broke him so much that Darkwing started to take a much more [[KnightTemplar hardline stance towards fighting criminals]], running all of them out of town before turning Saint Canard into a full-fledged PoliceState where AllCrimesAreEqual.

* InTheirOwnImage: In the episode "Time and Punishment", Gosalyn hitches a ride with a TimeMachine into a BadFuture where her disappearance caused Darkwing to become increasingly extreme in his fight against crime, not only destroying all the bad guys but turning all of Saint Canard into a totalitarian nightmare where AllCrimesAreEqual. When he obtains the time machine, he contemplates going back to the start of history and issuing the death penalty from the get go, or even going to the Paleozoic period to drill respect for the law into the new land-based lifeforms.
