These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Disney Ducks Comic Universe
Adaptation Displacement: Panchito's horse, Seņor Martinez actually comes from old American newspaper strips written in the 40s which, while popular in some countries, were never reprinted in English until after the publication of The Three Caballeros Ride Again
Anvilicious: Some of the stories (especially War of the Wendigo) move into this territory.
Of whom? It's not like Gladstone is typically portrayed in a positive light, despite his signature uncanny luck. On the other hand, Carl Barks has stated that Donald's tendency (particularly early on) to change jobs every story is a reflection of the various short-lived odd jobs Barks took on early in his own career.
P.J. McBrine may be the only character to have tried to murder the ducks right after succesfully begging them to save his life (in The Great Wig Mystery).
Don Rosa inadvertently made Magica DeSpell fit this trope for the sake of a gag in The Treasury of Croesus, where Scrooge gives her the first minted coin in the world, the very first coin owned by the fabled King Croesus, in hopes that this would stop her from hunting his First Dime. She promptly melts it into an amulet that should give her the Touch of Midas, the ability to turn everything into gold. And then she promptly thanks him by shaking Donald's hand! Fortunately it doesn't work, but it makes her chillingly spiteful even compared her almost every other appearance, ever.
Epileptic Trees: How Ludwig von Drake is related to Donald is quite a mystery. He is apparently Donald's uncle, but this would make him either Scrooge's brother or Grandma's son, neither of which seems likely since he is Austrian. Don Rosa has offered the possible explanation that he is married to Scrooge's sister, Matilda.
Some German comics have Daisy calling him "Uncle".
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Keep 9/11 in mind when you see this◊. I mean, come on! He called it the "Twin Office Towers," for Pete's sake!
Rockerduck seems to appear more frequently in Italian comics than Glomgold ever did in American ones.
The Beagle Boys' grandfather appears much more frequently in Italian stories, but that version of the character appears to be solely based on the "Grandpa Beagle" from "The Money Well" and not on Blackheart Beagle from "The Fantastic River Race." Some of the versions make him more kind.
The Woobie: Ms. Emily Quackfast. One thing that does mostly remain consistent is her really low salary. Also Webby on DuckTales.
There is some variation to this; at times she is presented as so competent and invaluable to the McDuck industries that even Scrooge couldn't run things long without her, and as a result she gets a raise every time she brings up her oncoming vacation time.
Fenton on DuckTales. While mostly played for laughs, sometimes the guy really needs a break.
Donald himself skirts the line of woobiehood, especially any time he appears with Gladstone or Scrooge (or even, on occasion, his nephews). It's only partially offset by his own stubbornness and short temper.
