* Why exactly does Donald stay with Daisy? She leaves Donald for Gladstone whenever she damn well feels like it, and it's not like Donald doesn't have better options. (Those "better options" including [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]] and [[ComicBook/DoubleDuck Kay K]]. The former of whom he's flirted far more with than Daisy....)
** It's a fool that looks for logic [[Film/OBrotherWhereArtThou in the chambers of a duck's heart.]]
** Two ''very'' good reasons. The first is actually shown in the strip it introduced Daisy by making clear that, in-universe, [[HelloNurse Daisy is just that beautiful]] (Donald was furious at the new neighbour accidentally ''graze'' his prized rose hedge with the moving truck. Then saw Daisy driving it and spontaneously cut down the whole hedge). The second, given you bring in the Italian stories featuring or implying ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', is HiddenDepths: Daisy has ''her own'' superhero alter ego, Paperinika, with whom Paperinik has a [[BelligerentSexualTension relationship of obvious rivalry and loathe and barely disguised attraction and admiration]], and Donald may be unconsciously after ''this'' side of hers.
** There's also the fact that Daisy is actually ''the second choice'': the first choice would be Reginella... But every time, something forces our alien queen to separate herself from Donald.

* If you think too much about Creator/DonRosa's ArcWelding work, you have to conclude that everyone's parents are dead.
** Not much fridge: ''ComicBook/TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck'' showed Scrooge's father's ''corpse''... On the other hand, Matilda [=McDuck=] is still alive and well, so Hortense and Della could still be around.
** Furthermore, Don Rosa usually implies that his "PresentDay" stories are actually set during the heydays of Creator/CarlBarks' classic stories (thus mostly during TheFifties), which means that as of ''right now'', most characters should be either really old (e.g. Donald and even HD&L) or most probably already dead (e.g. Grandma Duck and Scrooge himself)!
*** According to Don Rosa's unofficial timeline, Scrooge died in 1967, at the age of 100. If that should make Scrooge fans upset, it might help to consider that Don Rosa's earlier stories showed Scrooge's ancestors, as well as his father, living content on as ghosts, meaning Scrooge would likely do so as well.
* What's going to happen with all of Scrooge's money and businesses around the world after he passes away? Apparently it all goes to Huey, Dewey and Louie as they are smart and sensible enough to take care of it, but assuming they're in their teens, or at most, are young adults when the time comes, it can't turn out a very healthy life for the three having such massive wealth and responsibilities on their backs the rest of their lives.
* Donald can be read has having PTSD as a result of his service in the Pacific Front in the Disney {{Wartime Cartoon}}s. In a pre-war comic, Donald tries to catch a thief stealing his food with a camera trap, and it turned out to be himself sleepwalking. When the same thing happened years later after the war, [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/439086-ruined-childhood his nephews tried to wake him from sleepwalking with a firecracker prank]]. Donald promptly has a flashback to his duty in the Pacific Front, freaks out at the "Japanese-laid minefield and ambush", and throws some things at his nephews (Which in his rather frantic state he perceives to be grenades that he's flinging at Japanese soldiers).

* Why has Donald always endured in popularity while other classic Disney characters tend to wax and wane? First of all, he has plenty of human faults - a rotten temper, kinda lazy, being a bit of a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerk (albeit with a good heart)]], and very outgoing and friendly once he stops speaking {{Angrish}}. He's also been the one character that kept reinventing himself with the times, willing to try anything he thinks looks like fun. [[TheSeventies Disco dancing duck?]] Yup. [[TheEighties Showing up with a video camera and an Aloha shirt a decade later?]] He's game. Two decades and change later, and [[Franchise/KingdomHearts he's still reinventing himself]]. In short Donald's continued popularity is ''because'' of his foibles and changes. Donald is the most human Disney character and the most like ourselves, a true everyman.
* Donald's feats of strength during his temper tantrums are not unusual, rather, they are ''inherited'' from the [=McDuck=] Clan he is descended from, just like his Uncle Scrooge, who has once gotten angry enough to rip apart heavy steel chains when some crooked people made fun of his family and made light of the fact that one of his relatives had just passed away, after which he proceeded to start giving those folks a thorough thrashing, the resulting violence ripping apart the ship he was being held prisoner on. He has also gotten angry enough to fight off entire mobs of rival gold prospectors, and completely shrugged off their attempts to murder him with dynamite.
