* ArtisticLicenseSports: Although hockey is accurately portrayed, the Ducks don't respect a few prerequisites for a team...
** Almost {{Lampshaded}} in an episode when Wildwing [[TenMinuteRetirement temporarily leaves the team]], and their manager hires a professional hockey player in a mascot costume.



* CreatorProvincialism: It is set in the same Anaheim of Disneyland. Justified by the existence of the real life Mighty Ducks of Anaheim (current Anaheim Ducks).

''The Mighty Ducks'' animated series was, to put it gently, [[ShockingSwerve rather a surprise for viewers expecting a comedy series about misfit kids playing hockey]]. This animated series lasted from September, 1996 to January, 1997 on Creator/{{ABC}} (during their transition to Disney ownership- the season after this brought in ''OneSaturdayMorning'').

Added DiffLines:

* TeleportInterdiction: The Ducks have a defense shield over the Pond that keeps the Saurians from teleporting into their base, but it's of limited usefulness the one time they just walk in.

* AnotherDimension: The HeroicFantasy-ish version of Anaheim seen in "Dungeons and Ducks" and "The Return of Astroth."
** Technically, the ducks and the bad guys and such ''also'' came from another dimension. ''Another'' another dimension.

* BondVillainStupidity: Dragaunus has proven himself more than a match for most of the ducks in hand-to-hand combat, yet on many occasions he puts them in over the top DeathTrap[=s=] that they'll be able to escape fairly easily. And he's not the only villain guilty of this either.

* StatusQuoIsGod: There are too many opportunities where either side could have just ended the conflict permanently (like the time the Ducks ended up grabbing a Saurian comm, or the various petty uses of the dimensional gateway), but they don't bother.

** As for the villains, [[BigBad Dragaunus]] prefers his [[PlayingWithFire fireballs,]] Wraith has a FlamingSword in the pilot and uses various FunctionalMagic, shapeshifter Chameleon likes to go OneWingedAngel and Siege likes the heavy weapons.

* TeleportSpam: Averted; while the Saurians do teleport a lot, it's more to run back to the Raptor than any real advantage in combat.



* WeNeedADistraction: This is one of the Soreigns' primary tactics, keeping the ducks busy while they are working on a scheme. Despite this, the ducks ''still'' manage to foil them.
