* {{Pilot}}: There was one that was done as a pitch for the series. It was included on the DVD sets, but unfortunately with commentary enabled as the only audio track so you couldn't hear the dialogue.

* AnAesop: Tends to get dropped now and then, particularly in regards to censorship.
** "The Once and Future Duck" highlights just how much of a minefield trying to control the future would be, through liberal use of chaos theory (e.g. Duckman going outside leads to his getting an I-beam through his skull, but staying inside leads to his becoming a SassyBlackWoman), leading to his becoming paralyzed by indecision.

Very crude (right down to the deliberately ugly character designs), very cynical and very, very surreal -- sort of like if Creator/LuisBunuel had made ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' -- it freely mixed low-brow riffs with the abstract and the intellectual. The show has an ardent cult following, and a lot of its fans are still stewing over the final episode's {{cliffhanger}}.

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]], as Duckman often deliberately antagonizes Bernice and merits an asskicking or two to keep him in line. But Bernice also does go a little overboard with her abuse at times, especially when she's doing it solely to screw Duckman over or get him killed.

* IronButtmonkey: Fluffy and Uranus, who always get eviscerated in some terrible way but are fine a few scenes later, though the effects sometimes last longer than others -- for instance in the episode where they get eaten.

* KarmaHoudini: Subverted in "I, Duckman." Wolfgang Cracker was [[IAmAHumanitarian a horrible cannibal]] that Duckman inadvertently caught some time earlier. Cracker considers it the best thing to ever happen to him, as (thanks to an agent) he went on to become a rich celebrity. He even mocks Duckman for it - saying revenge against a nobody would be a waste of time. Then he gets a package that turns out to be from the Mad Bomber...

** In "Cellar Beware", the list of everything Duckman borrowed and never gave back to his neighbors: A lawnmower, a weed whacker, a "Dave and Jenny Farber" welcome mat, the TV, the dining room chairs, a framed picture of someone else's children at Sea World, and a dialysis machine.
--> '''Duckman''': ''(nervously, to the neighbors)'' Well, well, well, should have guessed it. You move into the same neighborhood, you're bound to have similar tastes.
