* DidNotThinkThisThrough:
** [[spoiler:Magica fails to realize that, with Scrooge's fortune being stolen from him, his number one dime won't be useful.]]
** [[spoiler:Blackheart Beagle and the Beagle Boys fail to keep Scrooge's money because Blackheart, who came up with the whole plan in the first place, didn't learn that the train tracks he planned to use to take the money from Duckburg were condemned for not being able to support a loaded train. The loot ends up falling into the town's sewer system.]]



* IOwnThisTown: It's said in this story that Scrooge owns 99.9% of all lands and businesses in Duckburg but never tries to tell the Mayor how to run the town.
* InsistentTerminology: Magica corrects those who call her a "witch" by saying she's a "sorceress".



* RebusBubble: There's a more elaborate than usual application of this trope as Scrooge puts together the facts to realize that [[VillainTeamUp Glomgold and Magica have teamed up]].

* VillainTeamUp: Scrooge's three main foes--The Beagle Boys, Magica [=DeSpell=], and Flintheart Glomgold--all join forces, and are led by [[spoiler:Blackheart Beagle]]. Incredibly, the three do ''not'' betray one another, but all live up to the deal they made at the start of the team-up. [[spoiler: Of course, once the team-up is over, nothing prevents the Beagle Boys and Magica from joining forces to plunder Glomgold...]]

* VillainTeamUp: Scrooge's three main foes--The Beagle Boys, Magica [=DeSpell=], and Flintheart Glomgold--all join forces, and are led by [[spoiler:Blackheart Beagle]]. Incredibly, This collaboration is made possible because their interests do not actually overlap: Magica only wants Scrooge's Number One Dime, the Beagle Boys want the rest of Scrooge's fortune and don't care about the Dime, and Glomgold doesn't want anything from Scrooge per se, just to see his business rival ruined. As a result, the three do ''not'' betray one another, but all live up to the deal they made at the start of the team-up. [[spoiler: Of course, once the team-up is over, nothing prevents the Beagle Boys and Magica from joining forces to plunder Glomgold...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShutUpKiss: One that goes horribly wrong. The Beagle Boys show up in the Money Bin when Scrooge is away, disguised as the Duck's friends and relatives thanks to a transmutation wand belonging to Magica [=DeSpell=]. Donald gets wary when he sees "Daisy" consorting with "Gladstone", his romantic rival. He decides to plant a kiss on "her" just when damage to Magica's wand causes them to (partially) transform back to their real forms. Poor Donald has to reach for the BrainBleach afterwards.
