** And not forget Lyla Lay, the MsFanservice of the series.
* FoeYay: Paperinik and the Raider. Paperinik literally cries over [[spoiler:the Raider's death]], and the Raider asks him to explain it to his son.
** PKNE ''Might and Power'' has even a scene playing humorously on this: when the Raider tries to make PK notice the Moon ([[spoiler:or rather the lack of it, since Earth has become a Worldship in the BadFuture]]), PK replies "Watch it! If you're trying to be romantic, you've picked the wrong time and the worng duck..."
* FridgeHorror: Corona's state as of the present in ''[=PK2=]''. Every single member of the parliament is implied to be just as emotionally stunted as [[spoiler:Korinna and Juniper, with no more maturity. All they have is more information, which we saw that the two used in vicious way. A new evil empire in the making?]]
** Not to mention how the way the parliament members are raised is plain out child abuse.

* RelationshipWritingFumble: Donald is supposed to be in a relationship with Daisy, [[OfficialCouple as always]]. However, [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]] is a {{tsundere}} for him, most of their dialogue come off as flirtatious (she is the biggest offender, but he does return it and never seems to mind, and calls her "Beautiful Eyes") and she straight up kisses him on one occasion. His only complaint is her high body temperature.
** Listen to Paperinik's last words to [[spoiler:a computer program that contains the memory of Xadhoom]] and tell me it doesn't sound like what a lover would say:
-->Paperinik: "We'll find a way to get you out of it... You'll be able to see again. The wind, the sky... We'll be together... we'll be... happy..."

* SoCoolItsAwesome: The first series, hands down. #10 "Trauma" and #22 "Fragments Of Autumn" in particular are considered the best issues by many fans, but there are several other fan-favorites like #12 "Second Writing", #20 "Mekkano", #28 "Metamorphosis", the Raider duology, the Xadhoom trilogy (with #46 "In the Shadow" as sort of an appendix to it)... More in general, anything written by Bruno Enna [=and/or=] drawn by Claudio Sciarrone is held in high regard.

** The vocal directive used to deactivate Two involves the deletion of something named "ehmet". If you remember Jewish folklore, that's the word that gave life to the Golem; and its partial deletion to "met" resulted in the Golem's death.

* AbridgedSeries: Banker's Motion Comics are the closest thing to this the series will ever get.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Camera 9 seemed destined to a significant role, especially after his appearance in the Stefan Vladuck persona in PKNA #16. Unfortunately, little of significance has been seen of him after that issue, and the fact he knew a lot of things about PK and Lyla has been never addressed. Even PKNE has given only small appearances of him so far.

* JerkassWoobie: Xadhoom is consistently rude, bitter and abrasive to everybody, including Paperinik, and thinks of One as nothing more than a machine. You'll still want to give [[ItsAllMyFault her]] [[TheAtoner a]] [[LastOfHerKind BIG hug]], and the hell to solarburn.

* ReplacementScrappy: Malice Sturling, who takes [[LongBusTrip Mary Ann Flagstarr]]'s place in the PBI in ''[=PK2=]''. Very unsympathetic, she refuses any help from Paperinik and treats him badly, forgetting all the help he gave to the PBI in the past.

** In this light, it's not surprising to know that by the opening of PKNE, he had quit the superhero life for at least some time, and he's not happy to be thrusted back into it.

** In the second issue of ''[=PK2=]'', Paperinik complains that life is easier for other superheroes. Of course they had to change their name for copyright reasons, and so he mentions the [[XMen X-Ducks]] and... [[GreenLantern Blue Lantern]]. A little more than a year later, the reboot would put him among a Lanterns-like organization.

** A poll to decide on the fate of [[spoiler:the Ducklair Tower]] near the end of PKNE ''Might and Power'', with a few pages for every possible outcome drawn and ready for publication, saw the first option (save) prevail by a wide margin, until authors and staff started openly campaigning for the other choice (destroy), leading to a reversal by a narrow margin. Beside their preference for one outcome or the other, some fans have seen the operation as a great way to involve the readers, even drawing parallels with ''Comicbook/ADeathInTheFamily'', others think it's a badly-done facade to get some "piloted" approval over a possibly unpopular choice. THe outcome is also quite anclimatic: [[spoiler:rather than collapse, the tower seems to just vanish]].

** Some fans were afraid that ''Might and Power'', being on the pages of the Mickey Mouse weekly, would have forced the authors to LighterAndSofter fare, similar to the classic Paperinik stories published there. Quite the opposite: ''Might and Power'' is probably the darkest story published on the magazine in years. Among other things, it features [[spoiler:a ''very'' bleak BadFuture that started with ''the assassination of Donald Duck'', and a new AI who accuses PK of having been too soft in the past, [[BloodKnight and gets angry when the hero refuses the easy and fast solution of killing his enemies]]]].
