** Dark Warrior Duck, while having a fairly humorous KnightTemplar ideal, had a somber backstory and the episode he was in, for the most part, took itself seriously.

While 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 sat dormant since 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. 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. The license then went back into a slumber until February 2015, when all 2010-2011 comics but the de-canonized crossover 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. The comic series, continuing from the epilogue, has since properly started in 2016 with a monthly schedule.

DW was assisted by his sidekick Launchpad [=McQuack=], fresh from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', his adopted daughter Gosalyn, and the youngest son of his next door neighbors, Honker Muddlefoot. He also ran into a number of other heroes, usually not starting off on the best foot due to his own ego issues. These include Gizmoduck from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', the duck-turned-dinosaur Stegmutt, the fish-turned-person Neptunia, and Morgana [=MacCawber=]; a sorceress and former crook who reformed and began dating Darkwing.

Darkwing faced a variety of villains, including: the nefarious dimensional traveller [=NegaDuck=], the comical but deadly [[PsychoElectro electropath]] Megavolt, the plant/duck hybrid Bushroot, the scorned artist Splatter Phoenix, the [[MonsterClown insane clown]] Quackerjack, the movie maniac Tuskerninni, and the ruthless F.O.W.L. agents Steelbeak and Ammonia Pine. Also, some [[PuppeteerParasite evil mind-controlling aliens]] that looked like ''hats''.

''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).

* 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)
