* BirthdayHater: Downplayed in Scrooge's case; he doesn't hate his birthday, but he doesn't like the fact that he's older than everyone he knows being celebrated - he prefers a single day of doing absolutely nothing. As a result, everybody gives him space so he can have the day to himself (for example, Beakley and Webby use his birthday as an annual survival skills trip, and Franchise/DonaldDuck simply flees in terror).

* ShoutOut: Black Arts Beagle's alias is [[WebVideo/NightMind Nik Nocturn]].


* TheButlerDidIt: Parodied brutally twice. First, when Black Art Beagle is revealed as the criminal, it is done in the most obvious, over the top way, complete with him being visible in position summoning insane magical power while Huey fails to realize he's forgotten a suspect, as Black Art Beagle is just supplementary to the plan. Secondly? Well...Duckworth did it (i.e., he hid Scrooge away to relax from the noise Huey's party was causing).

* TheManInFrontOfTheMan: Black Art Beagle was set up to be this to show his mother that the magic classes he took were not a waste of time and decided to use his magic to make Scrooge and the other villains disappear, including his own mother with a skull ghost. Averted when the skull ghost turned out to have been Duckworth.
* MeaningfulName: Black Art Beagle uses the black arts.
* MonsterFacade: The terrifying demon that Black Art Beagle apparently summoned chases after the triplets. After they end up in Scrooge's hiding place, the demon reveals itself to be the ghost of Duckworth, working for Scrooge all along. He explains his behavior by having a "flair for the dramatic" - basically just trolling the triplets, as well as scaring them to teach them a lesson about humility.

* PaperThinDisguise: All of the guests are in paper-thin disguises. Yes, it was a costume party, but it didn't take much to figure out who was who. Averted with Black Art Beagle, though, who is not obviously a traditional Beagle Boy, and covered up the traditional domino mask with a shadowy hood.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Huey is all too familiar with Locked Room Mysteries, but he fails to identify the right culprit multiple times. Also, he knows the party should end when the right culprit is revealed, but doesn't know what to do after Nik Nokturne (aka. Black Art Beagle) is "revealed" as such.

It's Scrooge's birthday, and everyone but the triplets leave to let Scrooge celebrate alone. Beakley and Webby explain that Scrooge hasn't enjoyed his birthdays since his loyal butler and excellent party planner Duckworth passed away. However, Huey plans an elaborate birthday party, tasking Dewey with providing the music as [[Music/DaftPunk DJ Daft Duck]], and Louie with inviting "Duckburg's Elite" as party guests. But when the party magician Nik Nokturne performs his act, Scrooge mysteriously disappears and all the doors lock. Despite Louie's suggestions to call Beakley or Donald to help them, Huey insists that this is a "Locked Room Mystery" and they need to find out who did it by themselves. After Nik Nokturne is revealed to be a Beagle Boy in disguise, the boys find out that the other guests are Ma Beagle, Mark Beaks and Flintheart Glomgold, who all have their own animosity for Scrooge. However, when Huey accuses any of them with kidnapping Scrooge, they vanish one by one, until only Nik Nokturne is left; it is revealed that he summoned a demon, who then turns against him, throws him out of the manor, and then attacks the kids. As the kids flee from the demon, they find a secret room where Scrooge is hiding and watching the whole party on a screen, laughing his tail feathers off. It is revealed that the demon is actually the ghost of Duckworth, who got summoned by Nik Nokturne during the magic act, hid Scrooge and then created the whole "Locked Room Mystery" to teach the kids and the villains a lesson. Scrooge forgives Huey for his selfishness as long as he promises he won't try to throw any more parties.
