Darkwing was on the voting roster to be in VideoGame/DisneyInfinity. He was neck-in-neck with [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Mabel]], but both lost to [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Olaf]], and with Disney's cancellation of the game and departure from the gaming business, only his gas gun and hat managed to make it into the game, as a Power Disc.

Darkwing is currently on the voting roster to be in VideoGame/DisneyInfinity. He is currently only a hair behind [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Mabel]] and neither of them are facing any real competition besides each other.

** Launchpad tends to be presented as fairly incompetent at superhero work, but during "Darkly Dawns the Duck" and "Double Darkwings", he and Darkwing wind up fighting each other. Launchpad [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps him]] both times.

* PowerDegeneration: In "Going Nowhere Fast", Darkwing gain SuperSpeed as a result of being hit with a time-accelerating weapon by Negaduck. When he used his newfound power, he did everything at a faster rate, including aging faster.



** "Time and Punishment" is itself a shot at ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''. Darkwing is an expy of Batman, who in this story is written as (by Creator/AlanMoore's perspective) "a revenge driven psychopath still mourning the death of Jason Todd. Darkwarrior is an {{expy}} of this version, only instead of being seen as a hero, he's portrayed as a villain who's [[HeWhoFightsMonsters fully as bad as any of the criminals he fought as Darkwing.]]

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In "Battle of the Brain Teasers", Launchpad initially doesn't believe Gosylyn that hats have taken over Drake and Honker's bodies. He spots them, with the hats on their heads and talking in different voices, and doesn't see anything odd... Until Drake transforms into Darkwing. "You're right, DW would never wear a hat that clashes with his outfit."

Added DiffLines:

* RetailRiot: In "Steerminator", the reason Darkwing's legs are broken is because a ski shop sale [[NoodleIncident got rough somehow]]; Launchpad tells him he's lucky only his legs got broken.

** Played straight with Tank Muddlefoot.

to:

** Played straight with Tank Muddlefoot.Muddlefoot, Honker's redheaded BigBrotherBully. Yes, he's a bully, not a supervillain, but he's ''never'' really nice.


Added DiffLines:

** Launchpad is an aversion. Despite being a redhead, he's actually the person in the house who's least likely to get angry, generally playing the GentleGiant to the snarky and somewhat bratty Gosalyn and the {{hot blooded}} Darkwing.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Taurus Bulba demonstrates this trope a bit, knowing that the title character and Gosalyn aren't dead, knowing exactly how egotistical Darkwing is and how to use that against him, and when he knows that Darkwing has the code despite having no real proof, he essentially takes advantage of the attachment that Darkwing has to Gosalyn, threatening to drop her off a building if he doesn't spill anything about the code.
** Negaduck also frequently demonstrated this trope (which was part of what made him one of Darkwing's most dangerous villains). Most notably in the ''Just Us Justice Ducks'' two-parter. He even intentionally leaves behind an impossibly obscure piece of evidence to lead Darkwing to his hideout, because he knew Darkwing "wouldn't notice the enormous flag." Considering this came ''right after'' Darkwing missing the flag seemed like a throwaway joke, this makes the savviness all the more impactful (and hilarious).



* GenreSavvy: The surprisingly aware Darkwing. At one point, he even takes advantage of CartoonPhysics. He increases the air pressure in a locked room, causing him to go flat as a pancake and allowing him to slide under a door.
--> '''Darkwing''': Oh boy, this is it, [[TroubledBackstoryFlashback the "How-I-Became-A-Villain" story.]]



** Of course, [[GenreSavvy [=NegaDuck=] knew he would ignore the giant [=NegaDuck=] flag.]]

* PreferJailToTheProtagonist: In "Time and Punishment", Megavolt and Quackerjack for once ''don't'' want to break out of the St. Canard Jail. Given that they're in an alternate future and that future's Darkwing has gone KnightTemplar, they have a good reason.



* SuperHeroesWearCapes: Which he irons himself.

to:

* %%* SuperHeroesWearCapes: Which he irons himself.
* SupernaturalProofFather: Darkwing in "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain". An unusual case in that (given that Darkwing is a single parent) there is no mother to whom to compare him. However, both Launchpad and Gosalyn recognize that the bizarre events surrounding Paddywhack's box are supernatural before Darkwing admits that it isn't just Gosalyn playing pranks and Launchpad freaking out.

%%* TripleShifter

to:

%%* TripleShifter* TripleShifter: Darkwing used to have no problems with this he did his crimefighting thing at night and slept during the day. Now that he has to be a single dad during the day, one has to wonder when he gets to sleep. Although if you've seen seen Gosalyn in action, it's obvious parental supervision is a sometimes thing.



* UndyingLoyalty: Launchpad is always loyal to Darkwing, in spite of the duck knight's HeroWithBadPublicity status,GlorySeeker nature, and snarking at his expense. Even on the (extremely rare) occasions when he's angry at him, he'll usually step up to help him again if Darkwing is actually in trouble.



* TheUnreveal: Speaking of his origin, for the first two seasons of the show, it was a complete mystery. The pilot begins with Darkwing already active as a superhero, instead telling the story of how he adopted Gosalyn. The show parodied this with an entire episode devoted to telling conflicting origin stories for DW, none of which made any sense. Other episodes would occasionally hint at telling his origin, only to change the subject. The trope was averted in season 3, which finally revealed Darkwing's origin.
