* BrokenBase:
** Some fans feel that season two was inferior to the first and that it had weaker animation and missed the adventure stories that made up season one. Others felt that the second season was just as strong as the first, if not even better.
** The news of the revival is currently a big one. Some are ecstatic that Disney is revitalizing the characters for a new generation and hoping that this will lead to the same happening for other Disney cartoons from the same era. Others are less enthused, worried that TheyChangedItNowItSucks will ensue by the new show not capturing what made the original a fan favorite.

* BizarroEpisode: ''[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E3LuckOTheDucks Luck O' The Ducks]]'' which sees Scrooge and co. head to Ireland and stay in a castle populated by humanoid leprechauns. No, not Disney dogs or ducks, actual little humans. It's weird.

* FriendlyFandoms: Many ''[=DuckTales=]''and ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' fans are pretty friendly with each other's fandoms. It probably helps that the shows shared at least two characters and were often interpreted as happening in the same universe.

* AccidentalAesop: "Superdoo", in which Doofus becomes a SmugSuper after gaining powers thanks to a strange rock, could be seen as saying, "Don't try to improve yourself; know your place."

** Is Launchpad a bad pilot, a good pilot [[CaptainCrash who can't land straight]], or [[BunnyEarsLawyer a good pilot who has a weird idea of personal style]]? Fans of the show all over the internet (or even ThisVeryWiki) will tell you different things.

** Fenton/Gizmoduck is an interesting case since the love/hate reactions he gets often stem from whether a fan encountered him first on ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' or ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. For fans who watched the former first, he's often an EnsembleDarkhorse as is shown below on this very page. For fans who met him when he cameod alongside St. Canard's resident vigilante hero, he's often not nearly so well-liked. But then, if these second group of fans goes back and retroactively watches ''[=DuckTales=]'', they often warm up to Fenton/Giz after seeing him fleshed out and with a real backstory other than just DW's rival. See RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap.

** Launchpad, who later went on to become WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck's sidekick. Ironically, when Launchpad started [[CanonImmigrant appearing in non-''[=DuckTales=]'' related comics]], he was poorly received by comic readers and accused of being an unnecessary carbon copy of Donald. Which is really weird, considering that Launchpad hardly ever gets angry or complains about doing what he's told to do. Donald's defining characteristic, on the other hand, is his temper.
*** 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".

Beagle. The episode "The Bride Wore Stripes", in which Ma fakes a marriage to Scrooge for monetary reasons and temporarily [[BecomingTheMask starts to like the idea of being with him]] may have had something to do with that.

* MoralDissonance: In the episode [[Recap/DuckTalesAllowanceDay Allowance Day]], Scrooge does business with the military dictator of a BananaRepublic (literally called "The Banana Republic"). Though the dictator is portrayed as a villain who attempts to execute Scrooge and Fenton at one point, Scrooge having done business with him is never portrayed as a bad thing.
