* TheGhost: Tammy from "Cock Tales For Four" is never seen or heard; we only have a vague idea of what she and Ajax are doing on their (apparently absolutely ''wild'') date by what Ajax comes downstairs to get.

* TheGhost: TheGhost
** Near the beginning of "Aged Heat", Agnes Delrooney explains her situation over the phone to what's apparently her current love interest. We never find out who this is.

* {{Hypocrite}}: The impetus of Duckman's first rant in "A Room with a Bellevue":
--> '''Duckman''': I just want to get home for my kids' birthday, but this whole leaf-blowing, false-advertising, traffic-stopping, tax-dollar-squandering, workers-on-permanent-coffee-break, upper-class-money-dodging, stolen-car-parts-dealing, sign-changing society won't let me! And you know who's to blame?! We ''all'' are! We say we hate lawyers, but we can't wait to sue somebody. We want leaders to make tough choices, then we vote them out when they do! We all want X-rated older-women-with-hirsute-upper-lips chat lines, then scream bloody murder when we get the bill! I ask you: What's happened to logic in this world?!

* CriticalResearchFailure: At the end of "Married Alive", Bernice, in a rare moment of humanity, gratefully thanks Duckman for saving her from a sham marriage to the self-serving tycoon Baron Von Dillweed...then becomes so enraged when she realizes that she could've immediately divorced him and gotten half of his fortune. Anyone who knows the first thing about divorce law knows that this is utter hogwash: The most she'd ''potentially'' be entitled to is half of his income (including non-liquid gains such as home equity) ''during the time that they were married''. Furthermore, Bernice's relative youth, excellent health, numerous occupations and affiliations, and ability to run a household on her own would all work against her. At an absolute ''minimum'' she would have to endure years of a miserable marriage (probably as many as 10) and hunker down for a very long, very ugly court battle against a man who can afford the best divorce lawyers in the world. (And then of course there's the monster Scylla-or-Charybdis decision of whether to allow a self-serving amoral sleazeball to keep custody of the boys or give them back to Duckman.)

* SuddenNameChange: In "Married Alive", Beatrice's will gives Bernice's full name as Bernice Batrille NI Battle-Ax, whereas Duckman is referred to as such, implying that he has a one-word name. In "Bev Takes a Holiday", Duckman let's slip that his first name is actually Eric; this remains the case for the remainder of the series (and actually becomes a plot point in "How to Suck in Business Without Really Trying"). In the final episode, "Four Weddings Inconceivable", Duckman's full name is revealed as Eric Tiberius Duckman, while Bernice's has changed (with no explanation) to Bernice Florence Hufnagel.

The DVD collection uses these names in its bio section and also refers to the sons as Charles and Mambo Duckman and Ajax Duckman, even though they're never called that in the show itself.
