* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: When asked to attend a Masquerade Ball, Drake decides to dress up as Darkwing Duck while Launchpad goes as an "air ace." Amusingly, the neighbors criticize Drake's outfit as looking nothing like the real Darkwing but gush about Launchpad's, even though Launchpad didn't so much as change his clothes.

DW was assisted by his sidekick Launchpad [=McQuack=] (formerly of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''), his adopted daughter Gosalyn, and the youngest son of his next door neighbors, Honker Muddlefoot.

Darkwing faced a variety of villains, including: the nefarious [=NegaDuck=], the comical-but-sort-of-deadly [[PsychoElectro electropath]] Megavolt, the plant/duck hybrid Bushroot, the smarmy salesman turned living liquid Liquidator, the [[MonsterClown insane clown]] Quackerjack, the more-than-competent Taurus Bulba, and the ruthless F.O.W.L. agent Steelbeak. Also, some [[PuppeteerParasite evil mind-controlling aliens]] that looked like ''hats''. Interestingly enough, though, the most fearsome opponent the series ever had was not faced by Darkwing...but ''was'' him: or rather, [[HeWhoFightsMonsters what he became]], in a BadFuture where he had lost the one that had meant the world to him.

He also ran into a number of other heroes, usually not starting off on the best foot. These included Gizmoduck from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' (who Darkwing did not work well with), Stegmutt (a large, dim dinosaur), and Morgana [=MacCawber=] (a sorceress and former crook who reformed and became Darkwing's girlfriend).

This would normally be the end of the article, since the show and the license had sat dormant since the show ended... but then Disney revived the franchise with the announcement of a brand-new ongoing monthly comic series, starting with an arc entitled "[[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns The Duck Knight Returns]]", which began in June 2010. The comic ended in November 2011, with a [[BatFamilyCrossover Bat Family]] CrisisCrossover with the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' comic where Scrooge [=McDuck=] and Darkwing join forces against the combined might of their rogues gallery as well as search for the long-missing Gizmoduck.

In February 2015, the first 16 issues of the Boom! Comics Darkwing Duck series and both stories in the single annual issue were reprinted as a trade by Joe Books Inc., rewritten by original editor Aaron Sparrow to better fit the show's tone and featuring a new epilogue. This is to be followed by a new ongoing series written by Sparrow.

the show was on TV, several complementary comic stories and illustrated books were released. Some of these were written by the show's script writers and many feature villains not in the show. This all came to an end in 1996 and the license had sat dormant since the show ended... but then 2010, when Disney revived the franchise with the announcement of a brand-new ongoing monthly comic series, starting with an arc entitled "[[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns The Duck Knight Returns]]", which began in June 2010.

* LetsGetDangerous: The TropeNamer. Darkwing is actually staggeringly competent as a superhero, it's just that his ego and inability to play well with others hold him back. Once he conquers those (however temporary), he almost always resolves whatever issue is facing him. Usually within mere moments.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Being [[FedToTheBeast fed to giant slugs]] is this, in Darkwing's opinion, something one villain tries to pull on him an Launchpad. (Fortunately, they manage to escape.)

* BigFun: Herb Muddlefoot, to everyone ''except'' Darkwing. (Who find him annoying.) So much that in an episode where he gets mad at one FatBastard villain and decides to take him on his own, it parodies Sumo wrestling.

* UnexpectedlyDarkEpisode: ''Darkwing Duck'' may have been DarkerAndEdgier by the standards of TheDisneyAfternoon, but it's a Disney show; even with the characters averting NeverSayDie it's still lighthearted 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.
