** 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 HAVE SHOWED HIM SWIMMING JUST FINE).

** Fenton Crackshell was extraordinarily good at counting, and he did become the super hero Gizmoduck. But he also had a big case of bad luck and a tendency to screw things up, and he was beaten up by the Beagles ''four times'' in one episode alone. And he lived with his trailer trash mother, who would often care more about watching TV than listening to what her only son had to say. Not to mention that he was stuck with dating Gandra Dee, who often was ungrateful or cold-hearted towards him. Of course, we're still talking about a relatively light-hearted cartoon, and plenty of this was played for laughs. But the poor guy deserved all of the breaks, that he could ever catch...

** Doofus Drake. While he's typically used as comic relief, what the show reveals about his life isn't very positive. On top of being saddled with a cruel name, he's bullied at school by the Beagle Boys' younger brother and out of it by the Junior Woodchucks. Even Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby aren't above taking cracks at him and [[TheFriendNobodyLikes don't seem to really like him]], despite letting him hang around.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Due to the show not airing in years and the comics still being fairly obscure, ''[=DuckTales=] Remastered'' is probably a lot of younger gamers' first exposure to any ''[=DuckTales=]'' media.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The show, while pretty well beloved all around, it this among comic fans; see BrokenBase above.

** The show itself causes this among those who know of the Creator/CarlBarks comics. Some view it as a bastardization of its source material, while others, while not necessarily finding it a good ''adaptation'', find it a good show when taken on its own merits.

* ThatOneAchievement: "Look Ma, No Spats". This achievement has you getting to the other side of the underground section of the Amazon, using only the pogo jump. While this was fairly easy to do in the NES version, Remastered decreases the amount of length between the top and the bottom, making this really harder to do, especially when the PC version of the game is running slowly. Did we mention the section is also [[SpikesOfDoom littered with thorns]]?

*** 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...(Of course, this doesn't explain the other characters.)
