He's basically the Batman of Duckburg: he has no powers, he fights crime in a costume, few people know he's actually Donald, and he uses all sorts of gadgets developed by Gyro Gearloose. The stories where Donald appears in this guise seem to be in a whole different {{continuity}} from all others, as his becoming a badass with a SecretIdentity would have huge ramifications for his character.

The trope is not about villains, at least not traditional ones (no [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]]), but the character doesn't need to be "genuinely" heroic. As long as someone, even if just the character themselves, sees them as fulfilling the "costumed hero" role, that suffices. An AntiHero or KnightTemplar could qualify.

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' Based on the DC Comics, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns home to Starling City five years after being presumed lost at sea along with his father when the family's yacht supposedly sinks in a storm in the North China Sea. Upon his return, Oliver embarks on a crusade against crime in Starling City using a set of skills he obtained during his years away; archery, hand to hand combat and a wide variety of martial arts; all while under the hooded (and later masked) persona known publicly at first as "The Hood" and "The Vigilante", then as "The Arrow" and finally (and currently) as "The Green Arrow". He gradually amasses a team of fellow hooded/masked/otherwise disguised vigilantes, with members joining and exiting the group throughout the series, including his bodyguard and best friend John Diggle as 'Spartan', his younger sister Thea as 'Speedy', his ex-girlfriend Laurel as 'The Black Canary' and Thea's boyfriend Roy Harper as 'Arsenal'.
