** Moreso, [[PapaWolf do not threaten or harm the nephews or Webbigail.]]



** Being called 'gadget man' becomes this for Gyro during "Sir Gyro de Gearloose" after he gets so thoroughly sick of Duckburg's residents over-relying on him for his mechanical skills. He gets over it.



* DeathByMaterialism: Nearly El Capitan in "Treasure of the Golden Suns" when he desperately tried to get his gold back when the temple collapsed; Scrooge as a RunningGag.

* DeathByMaterialism: DeathByMaterialism:
**
Nearly El Capitan in "Treasure of the Golden Suns" when he desperately tried to get his gold back when the temple collapsed; collapsed. Since it's a Disney production and the good guys can't leave him to die, Scrooge as saves him from falling into a RunningGag.lake of molten gold.
** This is also a RunningGag for Scrooge himself; on at least two occasions (including "Super [=DuckTales=]" and ''[=DuckTales=] the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp''), a character asks him point-blank "what's worth more: a fortune, or your life?". Scrooge has a hard time giving a straight answer to this question.


Added DiffLines:

* FireForgedFriends: Launchpad and Donald in "Treasure of the Golden Suns". They initially do not get along very well, but that changes during the course of the adventure. By the end of the episode, they're on pretty friendly terms. Launchpad even sticks up for Donald when his superior criticizes the frazzled sailor for not immediately saluting.


Added DiffLines:

* HeadDesk: Launchpad is upset over crashing during an air show and begins banging his head on his plane, stopping only to lament his mother and father seeing him do it. Then one of the nephews adds that his sister also saw it. Launchpad goes back to head-banging and another one of the nephews gives the first a DopeSlap.


Added DiffLines:

** Scrooge essentially winds up this way as well. While he doesn't get the Fleece, he doesn't really end the episode any worse off than he began it, despite being guilty of (at least) reckless endangerment.


Added DiffLines:

* ResentfulGuardian: Originally, Scrooge was not happy about Donald leaving the triplets with him, but he warms up to them quickly. It comes up again in "Nothing to Fear", where the boys' deepest fear manifests as an illusion of Scrooge who tells them that he's been behind all the things that have been scaring them as he never wanted them there anyway.


Added DiffLines:

* SelflessWish: In "Scroogerello", as the dream begins, Scrooge's wicked stepfamily are planning to attend the ball, hoping Princess Goldie will choose one of them to marry. Scrooge wishes he could save her from this fate, which is so selfless a wish that fairy godmother (and fairy godmother in training) Mrs. Beakley and Webby show up to give him magical assistance.

** As noted in the AnimationBump entry, Wang's episode had a more cartoony look compared to TMS's episodes.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Flintheart Glomgold is insanely jealous of Scrooge's status as the World's Richest Duck, and is willing to pull any kind of dirty trick he can think of to undermine his rival. That, and he's a conniving, thieving bastard in general.

to:

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: CoordinatedClothes: In "Duck in the Iron Mask", Dewey intentionally breaks up the habit that he and his brothers have of dressing alike after becoming annoyed that people can't tell them apart.

* IntergenerationalFriendship:
** Roy (the eponymous "Duck in the Iron Mask") is many years younger than Scrooge, but the latter shows great respect to his character and talent, and remembers him more fondly than other people from his past adventures.
** Doofus Drake is a kid and Launchpad is at least in his twenties, but the two get along terrifically (although this is somewhat crossed with hero/HeroWorshipper).



** "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E53HeroForHire Hero for Hire]]": Scrooge, believing that he drove Launchpad into a life of crime and having just (apparently) watched him die, sobs as he hugs the pilot's Webbed Wonder costume.



* PetTheDog: Many fans see Gandra as rude and insensitive to her boyfriend, but she actually takes care of Fenton while he is sick in "[[Recap/DuckTalesTheDuckWhoKnewTooMuch The Duck Who Knew Too Much]]",

** Scrooge [=McDuck=] is a hardbeaked skinflint, but he does have a soft spot for his family and staff, which gets shown much more regularly here than in the comics.

Added DiffLines:

* RedundantRescue: In "Scroogerello", Princess Goldie is kidnapped by the Beagle Boys, and manages to beat most of them and rescue herself. However, when she realizes Scrooge is coming to save her, she ups and pretends to still be in danger just for a RescueRomance. Well...this is Scrooge's fantasy...

** WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp featured Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby having to go through one of these in Scrooge's money bin. One difference from other examples: those lasers are lethal.

** In the episode where the cast visits a village in China, the village mayor betrays them, kidnaps the Nephews, and threatens to ''murder'' them unless Scrooge convinces Launchpad to [[ItMakesSenseInContext stop showering the village in dimes]]. While his plan is ultimately foiled, not only that he not receive any punishment for attempting to murder children who had nothing to due with what he blamed Scrooge and Launchpad for, he and Scrooge end up parting on good terms!
