* LimitedAnimation: In the very early episodes, some of the character models very noticeably moved 1 to 2 frames per second, to the point they looked like they were in slow motion, in stark contrast with the lavish background and opening animations.

* LaserGuidedKarma: In "Down and Out in Duckburg", Scrooge starts the episode acting far more miserlier than usual - raising a tailor's rent, refusing to give boat-repair money to a sea captain, and refusing to donate to a member of a SalvationArmy {{Expy}}. Then Fritter O'Way, the VillainOfTheWeek, shows up and claims that Scrooge's fortune now belongs to him, because of a long-forgotten debt involving their ancestors and a delivery of marbles, and he throws Scrooge out of the house. This is where karma steps in for Scrooge - the tailor who's rent he raised earlier can't give him a job, because the money that would have been used to hire help is now going towards paying the rent, and when he decides to try to resolve the debt himself by delivering the marbles, the sea captain's boat (which he borrowed) starts leaking because the captain couldn't afford to repair it. Luckily, Scrooge gets his fortune back, and [[TookALevelInKindness takes a level in kindness]] at the same time.

* FriendToAllChildren: The nephews, Webby, and Doofus Drake all have a positive relationship with Launchpad. This may be because, in spite of his imposing stature, he is rarely anything but gentle and friendly with the kids, and would put his life on the line rather than let anyone or anything harm them.
