I'd better specify some examples before they get marked for zero context.
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Daisy has this reaction in "Shrunken Heroes" to Donald's prank of filling Kent Powers' bug sprayer with syrup so that he attracts bugs instead of making them go away.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Daisy has this reaction in "Shrunken Heroes" to Donald's prank of filling Kent Powers' bug sprayer with syrup so that he attracts bugs instead of making them go away. She first says "You didn't" in a somewhat disapproving tone, but very quickly starts laughing hysterically at Donald's prank.

* PreemptiveShutUp: In "Need 4 Speed", Donald hollers "No!" to every argument his nephews give against his insistence to not buy them a car. While Huey and Dewey get to say some words before Donald interrupts them, Louie doesn't utter a word and only raises a finger and opens his beak before Donald yells "No!" at him.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Subverted in "Return of the T-Squad". After distracting Captain Muscle (Louie) with a meteor and The Really Incredibly Fast Guy (Huey) with a tidal wave, the disaster the Zalcrovian Overlord uses to keep Brain Boy (Dewey) from saving Donald is said to be "bad clams", but it turns out to refer to an airplane pilot eating bad clams and becoming comatose mid-flight, causing the plane to crash.

Seemed almost designed to inspire cries of TheyChangedItNowItSucks from Disney purists, fans of the earlier ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', and fans of [[CarlBarks the classic comics]], the inhabitants of Duckburg are now (save Donald, Daisy and the nephews) largely human, the nephews speak with still duck-like voices, but far less "Donald Duck" speech (as opposed the the really "Donald Duck in a higher pitch" voices of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''), the costumes have been redesigned to be TotallyRadical ([[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal and to include pants]]), and Daisy and Donald now work as reporter and cameraman for a TV show entitled ''What in the World''. Save for the occasional visit by Ludwig Von Drake (and in one episode, [[ShoutOut a cameo by Pluto]]), no other character of the Duck Universe appears. Some fans argue that the producers intentionally filled the world with humans in order to separate the show's universe from that of Ducktales and Darkwing Duck, which did not share Quack Pack's over-the-top wacky tone.

* HypocriticalHumor: "Pride Goeth Before the Fall Guy" has two examples. When Kent Powers criticizes Donald for never planning ahead, he then bumps into a wall because he wasn't looking where he was going. After that, Donald claims to know a thief when he sees one and then gullibly gives his keys to a burglar who claims to be a parking valet.

* KarmaHoudini: The guy who sold the Triplets an elixir to shrink a tree into a bud (To avoid cutting down said tree which is apparently indestructible) scams them by the fact [[spoiler: everything that becomes younger turns back eventually, as well as grows 100 ft taller than it was before]] this guy is never caught, or even seen again, though he does seem to be TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday of the Travelling Salesman variety. * {{Lampshade Hanging}}: Several, usually of the kind with characters pointing out how over the top things have gotten, though one episode they have a more direct one. The nephews have developed superpowers thanks to one of Ludwig Von Drake's inventions. Things get severely out of hand when Donald becomes a supervillain, and he ends up destroying EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, with one exception: Von Drake's lab. Naturally, he's invented a way to fix everything. Huey is quick to point out how incredibly convenient this is.

* NoChallengeEqualsNoSatisfaction: The episode "Dental Mental" has Huey accidentally get a mind control device surgically attached to his head, which he subsequently uses to win any contest, order anyone around, and eventually take over the world. However, he becomes unsatisfied once he is king of the world, knowing that no one truly respects him and he's being honored only because of the device on his head.
