Recap / Paperinik New Adventures S 1 E 24 Tyrannic

Go To

A crew sent to recover the Doomsday Device of Professor Fairfax dissappears together with two of the equipments. Since they are unable to get ahold of them, the PBI asks Paperinik's (or better, One's) help to find them. However, things might be more difficult then he thought thanks to Oberon De Spair, loyal servant of Belgravia.

Tropes Present In This Issue:

  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: One of the tasks Paperinik receives is to take control of the base in the North Pole so the PBI can occupy it later. One manages to evacuate the Belgravians by faking a leak of toxic gas.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Comically Serious: Flaggstar and Nimrod don't take Paperinik trying to lighten the mood by making jokes very well.
    Flaggstar:"We never laugh while on duty!"
  • Continuity Nod: Fairfax returns, together with his magnetic inductors.
    • Paperinik uses once again the suit for low temperatures seen in "Invasion".
  • Dude Where Is My Respect: Paperinik complains that, despite practically saving the world every other week, the only reason the PBI wanted his help was One.
  • Dude, Where's My Reward?: Averted: at the end of the mission Paperinik gets a badge and the title of honorary PBI agent for his help. And he insists they make another for One.
  • Going Down With The Submarine: De Spair and Fairfax refuse to abandon the Tyrannic.
  • Great Escape: De Spair makes Fairfax escape from jail to recruit him.
  • Handy Remote Control: To be free to shoot Paperinik Oberon puts the submarine under the control of Storm. This comes back to bite him later.
    • This is also the first time Paperinik uses his remote to recover his shield.
  • Heroic Hacker: One once again.

  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: One is even more competent that usual, to the point he makes Paperinik fell superfluous.
    One:"While we were talking, my devices were already at work!"
    Paperinik:"Fantastic! My inferiority complex thanks you!"
  • Never Recycle Your Schemes: Averted, as Fairfax tries to use his magnetic inductors again.
  • Not So Different: De Spair invokes this to Fairfax, stating that trying to sink the West Coast of the United States isn't better that what he does.
  • Order Versus Chaos: De Spair calls himself an "Agent of Chaos". Where do you think he fell in that?
    "Peace! Order! International balance... All of that I work against! In the name of disorder I plot! Corrode! Devastate... Because it is in disorder and on disorder that Belgravia prospers! And I with it!"
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: How Paperinik feels for much of the issue towards One. It just makes the ending more sweet.

  • Ramming Always Works: One destroys Storm by crashing the PBI satellite against it.
  • Ruritania: Oberon Despair's country, Belgravia, is hinted to be this.
  • Save The Hero: De Spair puts an unconscius Paperinik in the rescue capsule while the submarine is sinking. He does this because he considers him a Worthy Opponent and wants to have the pleasure to defeat him the next time.
  • Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: Fairfax and Despair represent the two ends of the spectrum: Fairfax thinks that Project Pangea will bring prosperity to the world, while De Spair thinks it will plunge it in chaos and destruction, making easier for Belgravia to take over.
  • Spy Satellites: Storm isn't just that, but it can also scramble other spy satellites (except One's, of course) and remote control the Tyrannic.
  • Western Terrorist: Oberon De Spair.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Actually justified: De Spair doesn't kill Paperinik right away because he had to discover how he found them, for whom he is working and if he is alone. Now why he doesn't take off his mask is another matter...
    • Averted later when Oberon actually starts shooting Paperinik.

How well does it match the trope?
