* ArchivePanic: We're talkin' about a character who has appeared in a considerable quantity of videogames, thousands of newspaper strips, a frickin' helluva lot in animation, and an absolutely ''monstrous'' amount in comic book stories...which have been released on a non-stop basis since ''1934'' and are unlikely to ever stop as long as The WaltDisney Company operates.
* BizarroEpisode: Holy precious , it wouldn't be a surprise if half of the budget for ''Duck Pimples'' [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs went to LSD for the animators.]]
* DesignatedVillain: Believe it or not there are some shorts where he comes across as this, such as the shorts where he's terrorized by Chip and Dale. While Donald's {{Jerkass}} tendencies often make him an ideal target for LaserGuidedKarma, there are also shorts where he actually does nothing to provoke characters like Chip and Dale, who decide to attack him for no better reason than he happens to be there.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: In the Netherlands, Poland, Italy and the Nordic countries, Donald Duck is more popular than Mickey Mouse.

* MemeticPsychopath: Pretty much the point of ''{{Webcomic/Dolan}}'' is to exxagerate Donald into a psychopath.
* MoralEventHorizon: In "Donald's Happy Birthday" [[spoiler: Donald sees their nephews buying a box of cigars and wrongfully thinks that they want to smoke, when they actually wanted to make a present for him. He becomes furious than ever and decides to punish their nephews forcing'em to smoke the entire box of cigars at once in their tiny treehouse and even increases the smoke with a bellows. Even when they pass out all sick and exhausted Donald triumphantly yells for the boys to "have another cigar!"]] While Donald can be a jerk in some circumstances, but still holding some sympathy, here can be considered downright cruel. [[spoiler:And then he feels bad when he learns the cigars were meant to be a gift for him.]]
* OlderThanTheyThink: The name Donald Duck first appeared in a written poem, ''More Hoozoo'' in 1931. (However, the illustrated duck did not resemble the character as we know him.)

* TearJerker: The ending of "Donald's Happy Birthday" is a pretty good contender for one.
** Also, the part where Donald thinks he killed his nephews in "Traunt Officer Donald".

** Screenshots from ''DerFuehrersFace'' are very popular on the internet mainly because a lot of people find it hilarious and shocking to see a beloved children's cartoon character in a Nazi uniform. [[spoiler: Granted in the actual film it was [[AllJustADream all just a nightmare]] Donald was having and it was made clear he hated being a Nazi.]]

* NightmareFuel: Donald going mad with godlike power in "Trombone Trouble". Along with him saying, "[[LargeHam Power, power, POWER!]]" and then laughing evilly. The sharp teeth certainly didn't help when he was laughing evilly.
** Donald ''roaring and taking a huge bite out of wood'' in "Donald's Double Trouble".
** His nervous breakdown in [[Disney/FunAndFancyFree Mickey and the Beanstalk]].
** Donald literally turning into a devil at the end of "Soup's On".
** Thanks to them editing the context, the prime time special "Down and Out With Donald Duck" treats Mickey's treatment of Donald in the short "Magician Mickey" as a moment that's left Donald severely messed up and revealed that it still gives him nightmares.
** Donald believing that he's accidentally ''amputated'' his entire lower torso a which leads him to be nearly DrivenToSuicide complete with an insane SlasherSmile on his face the whole time in "The Old Army Game."
** "Donald Duck And The Gorilla". Donald having to deal with a monstruos KillerGorilla who broke into his house.
