  • Trivia

    • During the scene when Negaduck is shooting at the poor defenseless bunny that Darkwing pretended to point out in the S.H.U.S.H. laboratory, Negaduck's mask switches from black to purple several times while he is shooting.

    • When this episode first aired, neither Stegmutt, Neptunia, or Gizmoduck have made appearances on the show despite that, as indicated by the dialogue, Darkwing has clearly had previous dealings with them.

    • In DuckTales, Gizmoduck was strong. But, in this episode he was not even able to hold up a small anvil.

    • Apocalypse Now

      Megavolt: Ah! I love the smell of voltage in the evening.

      Direct reference to a famous quote from the movie "Apocalypse Now" by Colonel Kilgore (played by Robert Duvall) "I love the smell of napalm in the morning."

    • X-Men

      Gosalyn calls Stegmutt, "the uncanny Stegmutt!", a parody of the comic series Uncanny X-Men.

    • Justice League & Avengers

      The Justice Ducks seem to have been inspired by both the Marvel Comics group The Avengers (Morgana=The Scarlet Witch, Stegmutt=The Incredible Hulk, Gizmoduck=Iron Man) and the DC Comics' Justice League (The name, Darkwing=Batman, Neptunia=Aquaman).

    • There is a group of DC Comics villains who call themselves the Fearsome Five.
