Awesome: DuckTales

Treasure of the Golden Suns
  • El Capitan points his shotgun at Scrooge, and Scrooge's response was to give El Capitan quite a glare despite the fact that El Capitan is pressing his shotgun at him. That alone is good evidence on how much of a Badass Grandpa Scrooge is.
  • One for Mrs. Beakley is in "Cold Ducks". After seeing a giant woolly walrus smash a museum, she proceeds to shout "Hey lardo!" and use a scarf as a bullfighting cape.

Armstrong
  • While minor, Launchpad loop-the-looping and making Armstrong's missiles crash into each other.

Where No Duck Has Gone Before
  • Launchpad gets a few of these. Huey, Dewey, Louie, Doofus, and Launchpad have gotten stuck in outer space with an egotistical actor who plays a hero in a sci-fi show and thinks he's still filming an episode. When the actor realizes they've actually been captured by aliens, he escapes back to Earth, abandoning the others. Launchpad then shows the boys what real heroes do, and saves the day.

Nothing to Fear
  • The ending, where Scrooge and the nephews face their fears to make them disappear.

Much Ado About Scrooge
  • Louie. Scrooge, the nephews and the descendants of the Drakespeare Players at Great Written find out William Drakespeare's last play, "MacDuck," is a disgrace to the McDuck name. Filler Brushbill, super-duper door-to-door salesman, though, had been promised half the play's proceeds for his help in getting the play, and on that verdict finds out he'll get nothing for his efforts from Scrooge. In a panic, he takes "MacDuck" in an effort to get something out of it. Louie, though, manages to talk him out of ruining his reputation as "the super-duper door-to-door salesman" with a play so awful nobody would ever buy anything from him ever again! Filler comes to his senses long enough to agree, admitting Louie "did a great sales job" on him. Given Louie himself thought of doing door-to-door sales one day, Filler later gives Louie an endorsement at the end.

Dime Enough for Luck
  • Magica hypnotizing Gladstone Gander to use his luck to steal Scrooge's Number One Dime and cursing him with bad luck afterwards! Not only is it incredibly satisfying to see Gladstone suffer for once, but the fact that she was able to pull this off at all makes Magica possibly the only force in the Scrooge McDuck Universe that's stronger than Gladstone's infamous luck! Carl Barks would have loved this episode, seeing one of his favorite characters take down one of his least favorite. Oh, and "Bad luck, old chum!"

Home Sweet Homer
  • The triplets defeating Circe.

Duck to the Future

Down and Out in Duckburg

Duckworth's Revolt
  • Duckworth revolting against the plant aliens. Particularly when he threatened to have Huey, Dewey, and Louie kill the aliens.
    Duckworth: "Are you aware that these lads could destroy every plant on this spaceship with the push of a few buttons?"

Pearl of Wisdom
  • Huey destroys a torpedo using only a marble.

Once Upon a Dime
  • When Scrooge told the boys about his rise to fortune, he recounted a time, just after arriving in the U.S., where he was arrested for wearing a skirt in public ("It's a kilt!"). When it came to trial, not only was he found not guilty, but the arresting officer was sentenced to 30 days in a skirt for offending the Judge's own Scottish pride with such a prejudiced charge.

Robot Robbers

  • The ending is awesome if only because of the sudden twist in its Aesop. In 9 out of 10 cases where the villain mocks the hero by calling him "too soft," the hero learns that may be true, but that's what makes him the good guy. This time, after Flintheart Glomgold tells Scrooge he's gotten soft and afraid to take risks, Scrooge proves Good Is Not Nice when Glomgold needs to hire McDuck Construction to rebuild the city his giant robots destroyed:
    Glomgold: How much will that cost?
    Scrooge: How much ya got?
    Glomgold: Scrooge, you're a low-down, ruthless rat!
    Scrooge: What can I say, Glomgold? You bring out the best in me.

Back Out in the Outback

  • Webby has one when she, with the help of the animals she's befriended, captures the criminals who have been responsible for the willy wisp attacks.
    Scrooge: Webby, how did you ever manage to capture such desperate criminals?
    Webby: Teamwork, uncle Scrooge, teamwork!

The Money Vanishes

  • Another awesome nephew-related moment: the last five minutes "The Money Vanishes." The Beagle Boys steal Gyro's furniture mover ray and use it to steal Scrooge's entire fortune. When the trio discovers that the Beagles are behind the theft, the crooks try zapping them with the ray and sending them off the face of the Earth. But then thanks to a goof up the nephews wind up getting the ray and the Beagle Boys realize that they are 100% royally screwed.
    Dewey: Come on, Beagle Boys! Take my ray!

Back to the Klondike

Master of the Djinni
  • It's pretty commendable that Scrooge and Glomgold were willing to race back to Duckburg from a barren desert (along with a detour into the past) to claim ownership of the magic lamp. Perhaps most glaring in this monologue where Scrooge's starts to wonder about his chances.
    Scrooge: *limps, gasping in exhaustion* I hope the boys are alright...If I don't make it...at least they'll be well taken care of... *gasp* B- but if Glomgold gets those three wishes, he won't leave them with a dime. I've GOT to make it!!! *marches on determined as ever*

Hero for Hire

  • The entire second half is one giant CMOA for Launchpad. The Beagle Boys use him as an unknowing patsy in all their robberies so he'll take the blame, and then they take Doofus hostage so he won't try and clear things up with the police. Launchpad then proceeds to fake his own death, locate the Beagle Boys' house, and saves Doofus while recovering the stolen money.

Maid of the Myth

Hotel Strangeduck

Duckman of Aquatraz

  • The one time this version of Scrooge really resembles the Badass comics' version is when he's wrongfully sent to prison: The other prisoners challenge him to an arm wrestling match, and he effortlessly beats each one in a second or two, one after another. "Next... next... next..."
    • Well, if he's strong enough to bathe in gold coins without getting injured...
      • One of them actually asks how he's so strong and he says "from lifting money bags."

The Uncrashable Hindentanic
  • Launchpad is told to crash the Hindentanic, and the crashing in itself was pretty awesome since the blimp was on fire and in the middle of a meteor shower.

Til Nephews Do Us Part
  • Glittering Goldie crashing Scrooge's wedding. She tears into Duckburg, shotgun in hands, to break up Scrooge's marriage to a Gold Digger. And you thought EVE was too Trigger Happy...

Super DuckTales

  • Considering he has no education and is from such a poor and deprived background he had to live with his mother in a rundown trailer in the worst neighbourhood in DuckBurg, Fenton managing to become the accountant to the world's richest duck is pretty freakin' impressive when you think about it.
  • Fenton Crackshell managed to take down Gyro's robotic guard despite having lost the instructions for the Gizmosuit the night before.
  • Fenton gets another by defeating the Master Electronic Leader in their counting contest in "Super DuckTales".
    "Sorry, M.E.L.! These are nuts, not bolts! Trick question! You lose!"
    • And then to add to that, he manages to singlehandedly take on and defeat the planet's entire inhabitants while Scrooge and Launchpad escape, recover the Money Bin, and steal their ship to rendezvous with the pilot and their mutual employer.
  • The multi-parter is finished off with Fenton doing the most BadAss thing of all: finally standing up to his mother, who's been treating him like dirt ever since we met her, and getting some much deserved respect from her.

My Mother the Psychic
  • Fenton / Gizmoduck chasing down Glomgold and the Beagle Boys by redirecting an electric magnet he was stuck to as it spun through the air like a giant frisbee.

The Masked Mallard

Ducky Mountain High
  • Goldie's Batman Gambit: Scrooge found gold trees growing on her land adjacent to his and "tricked her" into trading their land because he thought the gold deposit underneath the trees giving them their color must be there, too. It's not until he starts digging that he finds out what Goldie knew all along — he now owns the land with the gold trees, and she now owns the land with the gold! And she rubs it in Scrooge's face while flirting with him!
    Scrooge: Why you poker-face prospector! You knew about the trees and the gold all along!
    Goldie: Well, who do you think sent you that gold stationary to lure you up here? I've been working on a way to get your land for months. Now I've got a gold deposit, and you've got a lousy bunch of tree stumps.
    Scrooge: Oooh... Goldie, you're a dirty deal-maker!
    Goldie: I learned from the master. *Smooch of Victory*

Attack of the Metal Mites
  • Fenton successfully stopping the metal mite invasion, even after losing his Gizmosuit.

The Golden Goose
  • In the series finale, Scrooge, Launchpad, and Dijon have to return the Golden Goose to a temple, lest it's curse consume the entire planet, and turn everyone and everything to gold. With time running out, and nowhere to land, Scrooge actually orders Launchpad to crash their plane, which he gladly does...only to execute a perfect, flawless landing for one of the only times in the entire series.

The Movie

Others
  • The Moon level in the video game is pure Crazy Awesome. Here's why, courtesy of BrentalFloss
    Wait Uncle Scrooge, you need a suit out there
    • Not to mention barely five minutes after he steps foot on the moon, he starts picking fights with a technologically advanced batch of aliens. And is winning single handedly.
  • For the remastered version of the acclaimed game, them getting pretty much the entire original cast, including TV legend Alan Young (who at the time was 94) to reprise their roles for the game. And all the returning actors sound nearly indistinguishable from twenty years before.
    • Alan Young alone gets one for reprising his role as Scrooge and giving it his all despite his very old age.
    • Ditto for June Foray (Magica DeSpell), who was 95 at the time.
    • While Joan Gerber, Hal Smith, and Hamilton Camp could not reprise their roles as Mrs. Beakley, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, and Fenton Crackshell/Gizmoduck because they all died before the game was made, their replacement actors Wendee Lee (Mrs. Beakley), Chris Edgerly (Gyro), Brian George (Glomgold), and Eric Bauza (Fenton/Gizmoduck) deserve some points for being able to do the voices well enough that one can hardly tell the difference!
