* ThatOneLevel: [[spoiler:The last section of Mount Vestivus in ''Remastered''. It requires ''very'' precise plaforming, which will most of the time lead to your downfall. Toppled with the fact that you lose a life if you fail to reach the top in time.]]

** The Amazon and the Himalayas are considered the hardest of the initial five stages due to their higher concentration of annoying enemies and precision platforming than the others.

** It's really not that weird. Launchpad isn't similar to Donald personality-wise, but the role he played on ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' was an obvious stand-in for Donald's usual role in the comics. Since the comics already have the actual Donald, Launchpad is a rather pointless character in most of his comic appearances. This, coupled with writers not knowing what to do with the character, probably led to some readers thinking of Launchpad as, essentially, "Donald minus his personality".

** In general, the heroes tend to recover rather fast from being terrified, captured, and/or almost killed rather rapidly, regardless of how much the situation freaked them out while it was happening.
*** It's very in-character for [[BadassGrandpa Scrooge]] to bounce right back after dangerous situations, having [[SeenitAll lived through a lot]]. Huey, Dewey and Louie [[ItRunsInTheFamily have always been spunky kids]] [[BadassFamily to begin with]], so add to that natural disposition the fact that they see their great-uncle as their role model...

* AngstWhatAngst: Despite being ditched by not one but two parental figures (Donald and their mother, [[MissingMom whatever happened to her]]) Huey, Dewey and Louie barely have an angsty moment between them.

** The Beagle Boys mainly resort to burglary and thievery throughout the show, and don't really harm anyone. However, they cross this line BIG time in the series finale, "[[Recap/DuckTalesTheGoldenGoose The Golden Goose]]", when they [[spoiler: turn Huey, Dewey, and Louie into golden statues, essentially killing them...though the effect is reversed at the end of the episode]]. They get their comeuppance when they [[spoiler: [[LaserGuidedKarma suffer the same fate]], [[HoistByHisOwnPetard and it's their own fault it happens no less]]]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Three of them in fact. Launchpad's loving family; Ripcord, Birdie and Loopey [=McQuack=] are very well liked and fondly remembered despite only appearing once in the episode "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E12TopDuck Top Duck]]" (with Ripcord and Loopy getting a non-speaking cameo in "Til Nephews Do Us Part"). Fans requested they make another appearance but all they got was a cameo in the ''WesternAnimation/DarkWingDuck'' episode "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E57UFFoe U.F. Foe]]."

* GeniusBonus: In "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E9DimeEnoughForLuck Dime Enough for Luck]]", Gladstone Gander hums "[[Theater/GuysAndDolls Luck Be a Lady]]" just before he is brainwashed into helping Magica and has his luck turned bad. While it works just based on the title and Gladstone's {{Born Luck|y}}iness, viewers who know the song will get more out of the joke, given that the "Luck Be a Lady" is actually talking about how unreliable luck is -- the lyrics amount to, "Luck, ''please'' be a lady tonight, and don't skip out on me and leave me to hang, because you do that a ''lot''."
