Recap / Paperinik New Adventures S 1 E 33 Phase Two

Go To

The Evronian base hidden in the asteroid belt is on alert: a large enemy fleet belonging to Paperinik is headed toward them. Enraged by the earthling's audacity, General Zotnam orders a full attack on Duckburg.

Tropes Present In This Issue:

  • Alien Invasion: A much straighter example, as this time the Evronians build a massive fleet to invade and destroy Duckburg.
  • Badass Boast: Of The Chessmaster variant, by Zotnam: "Do you think there's anything happening on this ship that I don't know of?!". Later in the same issue, he proves it when he reveals that he manipulated Two for two years as part of a plan to neuter or kill Paperinik, and Two believed he was the one manipulating him and Zotnam didn't know of him the whole time.

  • Batman Gambit: Two makes the Evronians believe Paperinik is going to attack them with a whole fleet, knowing that their response will be to launch a full scale attack on Duckburg.
  • The Chessmaster: Zotnam, manipulating Two into believing he was the one manipulating Zotnam.
  • Continuity Nod: Two's last encounter with Paperinik and his attempt to use Evronian soldiers from #8 "Silicon" are remembered.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Sputhon is a moron... But he's the only one apart from Zotnam to spot the thread of Two's machinations (even if he doesn't realize what's happening, differently from Zotnam), and can recognize Two.
  • Enemy Civil War: Because of Two's and later One's manipulations,every high ranking evronian general and scientist is trying to backstab each other.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Two's manipulation caused the Evronian scientist Kerebron to suspect one of his collegues. He then sabotages his secret weapon (actually Two's) so, instead of deleting One, he wrecks the evronian fleet.

  • Holographic Disguise: Two takes the form of several high ranking Evronians to accomplish his goal. Later One does the same thing to sabotage him.
  • Ironic Echo: "As you can see, I went around the problem! Aren't you going to compliment me?" First said by Two when he finds a way to destroy One despite not being able to exactly locate him. Then by One when he manages to leave Duckburg even with Two's grid stopping him for transmitting.
  • Loophole Abuse: Two Evronian sappers realize that, since they never completed the exam to be part of the fighting force, they aren't technically forced to fight Paperinik, and so opt to run away.
  • Manipulative Bastard: This issue really shows how much Two can be one.
  • Out Gambit: Zotnam proves to be more of a manipulator than Two.
  • Planet Spaceship: Zotnam's mothership from "Xadhoom" makes its return.

  • Pragmatic Villainy: Zotnam is not happy to have Two in their computers, but if he can get rid of Paperinik, he will let him work.
  • Punny Name: A scientist named Kerebron.
  • Running Gag: Zotnam hitting Sputhon with his Breath Weapon every time he says something stupid.
  • Spanner in the Works: One uses the same trick of Two to confirm everybody's suspects about the others, thus reveling Two's meddlings.
    • Evronian scientist Kerebron also counts: he found the plans of Two's secret weapon, but he believed they were of one of his collegues trying to be promoted. So he modified them to wreck their own fleet in order to get rid of him.
  • Shout-Out: Three Evronian battalions have names similar to the three most famous Marx Brothers: Harpon, Grouchon and Chicon.
  • Villain Ball: Had Two not sent a message to One and Paperinik to rub in their faces that they were going to die he probably would have won.
  • Villain Episode: We spend much more time with Two and the Evronians that with our heroes.
  • Villain Team-Up: After using them for most of the issue, Two allies with the Evronians. After his plan fails,they try to destroy him.
  • We Need a Distraction: Two uses several Evronian squads to keep Paperinik and One busy while he works on his true plan.
  • Worst News Judgement Ever: Angus flat-out admits he doesn't believe for a second that the Evronians are Paperinik's accomplices. He is just pretending for rating's sake.
    Pilot:"Eh? But you always say..."
    Angus:"What I say and what I think are different things!"
  • You Have Failed Me: What Zotnam tried to do after Two's superweapon destroys their fleet.
