** In one episode, Launchpad introduces the concept of money to primitive islanders by using bottle caps as currency. A decade later, [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} a video game franchise would feature the same concept]].

* JerkassHasAPoint: In the multi-parter ''[[Recap/DuckTalesS2E1TimeIsMoney Time Is Money]]'', Scrooge is [[WhatTheHellHero frequently called out for his shabby treatment of Bubba]] to the extent even his own conscience becomes ashamed of him. However, the show ignores the fact that Bubba's actions ''are'' incredibly, albeit innocently, disruptive and destructive in Scrooge's business and home life to the extent he almost loses his fortune to the Beagle Boys because of him. While Scrooge was very mean to Bubba, it's hard not to feel a little bad for the guy as he suffers catastrophe after catastrophe and no one seems to care beyond how he hurt Bubba's feelings.
* LoveItOrHateIt: The show, while pretty well beloved all around, is this among comic fans; see BrokenBase above.

*** [[https://youtu.be/5uzajfGTPjA Money Bin]] has a happy-go-lucky feel to it, fitting for the start of an adventure. It's 8-bit version ain't too shabby either.
*** [[https://youtu.be/lMOwW7rO8fM The Moon]] now has an even more badass rendition to it's own theme. The Piano version ain't half bad either.

** In "Armstrong", did the eponymous robot take advantage of the triplets' statement that he's "the best friend a kid could ever have" to hurt Launchpad for no reason, or was he trying to drive away one of the only people who could potentially pose a threat to his takeover plans?

** It can be argued that Webby is a BaseBreakingCharacter at least, being essentially the female edition of the duck triplets. Probably classes as Annoying Younger Sibling, but she did have quite a few {{Awesome Moment}}s to neutralize some of her TastesLikeDiabetes moments. It could have to do with the fact that she's a Purity Sue mixed with a Damsel Scrappy. She often got in trouble or captured, forcing everyone else to drop everything so they could come to her aid. When that wasn't the case, whenever she was directly involved in an episode's story she'd almost always be the one to save the day, often making the other characters look completely incompetent by comparison (for example, one episode has her pulling a BigDamnHeroes and saving Launchpad from drowning since he doesn't know how to swim...even though several episodes before this have had the gang go underwater and shown him swimming just fine).

* HarsherInHindsight: The plot of "The Masked Mallard", which contains some obvious Franchise/{{Batman}} homages, features Scrooge becoming a masked vigilante only to be framed by an imposter. Gizmoduck ends up detaining and publicly unmasking Scrooge as the Masked Mallard, and the public becomes convinced that Scrooge has undergone some sort of nasty case of SanitySlippage that's made him become a criminal. 26 years later the video game ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' is released, in which [[spoiler: Bruce Wayne is publicly unmasked as the Batman by the Scarecrow, as he makes Bruce undergo an actual case of SanitySlippage thanks to a combination of his fear toxin and a transfusion of the Joker's blood from an earlier game in the series.]]

** The show carefully avoids drawing attention to this, but Huey, Dewey, and Louie were already orphaned by their biological parents (the original 1930s cartoons show them abandoned on Donald's doorstep) when Donald decides to up and abandon them to his elderly, initially uncaring uncle to pursue a career in the navy. Glimpses of the future suggest that he never returns to them, and over time he stops being mentioned at all. Luckily Scrooge quickly warms to them and does his level best to be a good caregiver, but, still, that's a pretty horrifying back story.

* MemeticMutation: '''DREAM AND FRIENDS'''[[labelnote: Explanation]] The original game had a very [[GoodBadTranslation engrishy]] line where Scrooge was talking about the power of following your dreams and how your friends are important. Due to bad translation though, Scrooge ends up saying the following.[[/labelnote]]
