!!The series:
* See Trivia.DuckTales1987

!!The games:
* AccidentallyCorrectWriting: Thanks to the limited NES palette, Scrooge's frock coat is red, like in the comics, rather than blue as in the cartoon. ''Remastered'', as a throwback to both media, uses the cartoon color scheme.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Disney owns the characters while Capcom still owns the source code. This problem kept the original NES game from making it over to the Wii Virtual Console. What happens when Disney and Capcom get talking again? [[CueTheFlyingPigs Yes, BOTH games are coming out for]] PS4, UsefulNotes/XBOXOne [[CueTheFlyingPigs and PC on Steam. At less than $5 per game.]]
* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: The [=PS3=] version of the game had a retail version of the game containing a voucher to download the game and a collector's pin. The Wii U's retail version will also have the collector's pin along with the game disc, but it is exclusive only to Target retailers.
* NoExportForYou: The ''Remastered'' version was not released in Japan. Justified, as the original NES game was made for Western audiences in mind. Averted when the iOS/Android ports came.
* TheOtherDarrin: New actors were hired to play the characters listed below in the remastered version because the original actors[[note]]Joan Gerber, Hal Smith (Gyro and Flintheart) and Hamilton Camp respectively[[/note]] had passed away by the time the game was developed:
** The new Mrs. Beakley is Creator/WendeeLee.
** The new Gyro is is Chris Edgerly.
** The new Fenton[=/=]Gizmoduck is Creator/EricBauza.
** The new Glomgold is Brian George.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The ''Remastered'' version was originally going to include Scrooge's alter ego, the Masked Mallard (from the episode of the same name), as an unlockable costume.
** Menu screens featuring the Creator/WayForward character VideoGame/{{Shantae}} (from the game of the same name) were found dummied out as well.
** Japanese copies of the NES game kept the infamous "dream and friends" ending from the prototype.
