* ButtMonkey / TheChewToy: Almost every single character falls victim to these two very painful tropes. Some, like Bugs Bunny, Tweety, and Roadrunner are smart enough to stay out of harm's way ([[NotSoInvincibleAfterAll though not always]]); others, like Daffy Duck (the greedy narcissist, not the manic screwball), Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Sylvester, and Wile E. Coyote are the worst offenders.

* JudicialWig: In "Bugs Bonnets", Bugs and Elmer keep changing roles depending on the hats that end up landing on their heads. At one point, Bugs as a gangster tries to bribe Elmer as a cop. Elmer tries to give the bribe back, but at that point a judge wig lands on Bugs, who then sentences him for corruption.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In one Daffy Duck episode, Daffy messes around with a caveman who wants to eat him. The episode ends with Daffy tricking the caveman into poking a hole in a giant duck balloon, and the resulting explosion causing both of them to turn into angels.
--> '''Daffy''': You know, maybe that wasn't such a hot idea after all.
