* TheLancer: With Mickey.

to:

* TheLancer: With Mickey.In ensemble stories with the rest of the classic cast, he typically fills the role of Mickey's Lancer because of their highly contrasted personalities.


Added DiffLines:

* OddFriendship: If any member of the cast is going to be singled out at Mickey's ''best'' friend, most of the time, it will Donald, likely because they end up with this dynamic.

** In a more traditional, approved-for-kids instance, Daisy gives him one (on the cheek, mind you, after risking his life to save her from an evil magician with a wicked mind, come on now) - at the end of last gen's videogame, ''Goin' Quackers''.
* SoreLoser: And how.

* SoreLoser: And how.One of Donald's key traits, aside from the temper, of course, is that he can dish it out, but absolutely ''cannot'' take it.

* ArtEvolution: He emerged with his trademark sailor suit and feather/beak colors already, but he was much more close in look to a real duck, with his plumper body and larger neck. From 1936 onwards, he was redesigned to have more depth and a rounder shape. An easy way to confirm this is to compare [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTJrSybN0LA Don's second appearance]] with the short's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVrSktsrMnk remake]] 7 years later.

* VagueAge: He's typical portrayal is that of a young adult (Information found in various comics suggest he is, in fact, in his late twenties) But in earlier shorts, he often comes across as a child, "Donald's Better Self" explicitly portrays him as a schoolboy, yet the ''very next short'' introduces his nephews.

* IncrediblyConspicuousDrag: The Beagle Boys still wear their masks, and don't shave.


Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Modern interpretations of Donald tend to paint the Duck in a much more flattering light than the old shorts. Firmly establishing him as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* ModestyTowel: It happens, [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal logic be damned]]. This eventually got a ShoutOut on ''Series/{{Friends}}'', where Chandler discusses the subject with Phoebe.

* CuteAndPsycho: Donald in ''Mickey and the Beanstalk''.



* FourFingeredHands: His wing-hands.
* FunnyAnimal: An anthropomorphic duck.

to:

* FourFingeredHands: His wing-hands.
Like most cartoon characters of the era.
* FunnyAnimal: An anthropomorphic duck.Maybe he's only a duck, but he's human.



* GoodIsNotNice: The main character and a jerk.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceHat: Donald's "classic" outfit just isn't complete without his iconic sailor hat. It started off as white, then became blue to better match his shirt. And woe betide anyone to harms that hat.

And naturally, there are the comics. Donald Duck, unlike Mickey, has a specific [[TheVerse universe associated with him]]. Whereas Mickey's father simply appears to be Creator/WaltDisney within the Disney franchise mythology, Donald's official family tree is ''very'' extensive and under strict canon rules. In many countries, Donald has his own weekly or monthly comic books and magazines: ''ComicBook/DoubleDuck'' and ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', to name a few. These comics often show just how much of a hero that [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass "loser duck"]] can be.
