Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In ''Wise Quackers'', is Daffy really an incompetent slave to Elmer Fudd, or is he really just ObfuscatingStupidity in hopes that he's screw up so badly that Elmer will release him from being his slave (even though his screw-ups keep getting him very close to being killed instead)?

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Daffy's CatchPhrase "You're despicable!" was meant to be funny in part because he mispronounces it - originally, the word "despicable" was pronounced only with stress on the first syllable, and the vowel in that syllable more strongly pronounced. Daffy's use of the word was so influential that his pronunciation has more or less become the standard, and some of the humor of his delivery is lost.

* CharacterRerailment: Some recent ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' revivals have been twisting in and out with the original enterpretations of Daffy (in ''Film/SpaceJam'' and ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' in particular, [[CompositeCharacter while still maintaining a lot of wit from Creator/ChuckJones' era, he is back to his goofy prankster persona]]). At the very least he's been dialed back for the better since his more ruthless De Patie Freleng period.

* CrazyAwesome: His no-holds-barred insanity got him noticed, defeated his foes and won him his fans. As he gradually evolved into a more deliberate, motivated character, he began to fail more and more. ''TheLooneyTunesShow'' [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructs]] this trope by bringing back his insanity, but forcing him to suffer more realistic consequences for it (he can't hold down a job, he gets thrown in prison for contempt of court, etc.), ensuring that he remains a StrawLoser. Nonetheless, his craziness has made him [[UnpopularPopularCharacter one of the most popular characters]] among fans of the show.

* FandomRivalry: Unlike BugsBunny and [[ClassicDisneyShorts Mickey Mouse]], who despite being from rival companies are shown to actually get along in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', Daffy doesn't get along with DonaldDuck at all.

* JerkassWoobie: Sure that Daffy is a self professed cowardly and greedy [[SmallNameBigEgo egomaniac]], and has a plenty moments of assholery, but he's also a HUGE ButtMonkey and knows no better, making him one of the most pathetic characters in the Lonney Tunes Universe.

** Less consistant when paired with Speedy. While he still had sympathetic moments every now and then, the writers seemed very adamant that the audience [[TookALevelInJerkass want Speedy to kick his ass most of the time]].

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Believe it or not, he could occasionally be this in his pairings with Speedy Gonzales. For example, in "Daffy's Diner," he's just trying to protect himself from a vicious bandito cat named El Supremo who threatens to [[DisproportionateRetribution blow his brains out if he can't produce an authentic mouse burger.]] Even though El Supremo is probably the ''real'' villain of the cartoon, it's Daffy who gets the short end of the stick at the end. Meanwhile, in "Feather Finger", Daffy's a homeless street rat who gets ''conned'' into chasing Speedy by the conniving Mayor Katt - and yet, the little black duck winds up being the loser of this cartoon as well.

* BrokenBase: Which Daffy Duck is better? The [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} crazy one]] created by Creator/BobClampett and Creator/TexAvery? Or the less goofy one created by Creator/ChuckJones.
