* AttentionWhore: His very first scene has him exiting the police station after apprehending some criminals... and disappointed that there's no press waiting for him outside.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal: Has no superpowers, but much like another [[{{Batman}} caped crusader]], he pulls through with some impressive wit and athleticism.

"Yep, yep, yep."\\
"AH...HA!"\\
"Ouch."\\

"[[IAmTheTrope I am the terror]] that [[InTheNameOfTheMoon flaps in the night]]. [[MadLibsCatchPhrase I am the (noun) that (does something unpleasant)]]. I am Darkwing Duck!"
* TheChewToy: He's accident-prone, to say the least.

----
Tropes associated with Launchpad:

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Initially.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* [[DatingCatwoman Dating Batman]]: The Catwoman to Darkwing's Batman.

* FemmeFatalons

* HotWitch

[[folder:The Muddlefoots]]

The neighbors in Drake/Darkwing's MoebiusNeighborhood and Honker's family. Unlike Honker, they're really aren't that bright; otherwise they would have discovered that their neighbor was Darkwing Duck a long time ago. With the exception of Honker, Drake cannot stand them, while Gosalyn and Launchpad don't seem to mind them.

-> A loving but oblivious couple that lives next door to the Mallards. Herb is a Quackerware (their version of Tupperware) salesman and Binkie's a homemaker.

Tropes associated with Herb and Binkie:
* BerserkButton: Herb, of all characters, is shown to have one in "The Merchant of Menace" when facing off against evil salesman [[DeathOfASalesman Weasel Loman]]

[[folder:The Fearsome Five]]

A FiveBadBand formed by [=NegaDuck=] with four of Darkwing's most recurring/dangerous villains to takeover St. Canard. Despite getting beaten by the Justice Ducks, they still work together at times, but become more of a BigBad with his bumbling QuirkyMinibossSquad.

!!'''[=NegaDuck=]'''
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Negaduck.gif

-> He is Darkwing's EvilCounterpart from a MirrorUniverse which he has taken total control. Now he seeks to take over Darkwing's world and be Public Enemy #1, but can never seem to beat out Dr. Slug for the top spot. Not to be confused with the first [=NegaDuck=], referred to here as [[FanNickname NegaDuck I]] (With this one being referred to as [=NegaDuck=] II when discussing both [=NegaDucks=].). Voiced by Creator/JimCummings.
----
Tropes associated with Negaduck:

* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Parent]]: There's a chilling but subtle indication that he's this to the [[StepfordSmiler Negaverse's version of Gosalyn.]]
* AllYourPowersCombined: He steals all the Fearsome Five's powers in "Jail Bird".
* [[spoiler:AndIMustScream: His ultimate fate in the comic series.]]
* ArchEnemy
* AxCrazy: Oh boy is he ever. He once considered pushing a button [[ItMakesSenseInContext to crush St. Canard with giant electric wall]] just because he could after just using it as a threat. Some of his plans don't even involve stealing and are only aimed at causing destruction.
* BadassNormal: Leads a team of super villains where 3/4 of them have powers, and the other has dangerous gadgets, and he puts the fear into them regardless. Also manages to consistently beat Darwking Duck on his own.
* BadBoss: The rest of the Fearsome Five put up with him mostly because they're afraid of him. When ruling St. Canard, he insists that he gets all the loot they steal.
* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' remind Negaduck that he's only the #2 villain in St. Canard, behind Dr. Slug.
* BigBad: Of the Justice Ducks two-parter, [[spoiler:and the finale of the comic series]].
* BigOlEyebrows: When compared with Darkwing. Only visible when he's posing as Drake Mallard.
* [[spoiler:BlobMonster: As a result of being reduced to particles by the Tron Splitter, he eventually festered into an evil inky gunk.]]
* BreakoutVillain: After the Negaduck I episode, Tad Stones (the ShowRunner) said he liked Negaduck and wanted him brought back for more episodes; this resulted in Negaduck II, who the fandom embraced as perhaps not just the most popular villain but the most popular ''character'' on the show, period. When the revival comic book came around, the writer has said that he intended to have a F.O.W.L. story for the second arc and a Negaduck story for the third arc, but sheer fan demand made him swap the order.
* CardCarryingVillain
* CatchPhrase: "I hate that."
* ChainsawGood: While he caries a number of different weapons, chainsaws seem to be his favorite; in the "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings", he's seen DualWielding chainsaws, as well as using a chainshaw that has ''other smaller chainsaws attatched to the blade.''
* {{Determinator}}
* EvilCounterpart: To Darkwing, of course. And an interesting variation, too. Though they have the exact same physical abilities, they have opposing personalities. Where DW's FatalFlaw is {{Pride}}, ND's is {{Wrath}}. Though this makes him exponentially more effective in combat than DW, it also means that he can't keep a team together. He thus beats the stuffing out of DW on a regular basis...Aaaand then DW's friends show up and stomp ''him''.
* EvilLaugh
* EvilOverlord: In [[MirrorUniverse his own world]] and he's not satisfied with it.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Has Darkwing's voice, only deeper and more menacing.
* EvilTwin
* FauxAffablyEvil
* ForTheEvulz: As a character trait. He thoroughly enjoys spreading misery and destruction for its own sake - turning a profit is just a bonus.
* GeniusBruiser: He can beat Darkwing in a fight, and he's likely the most competent villain in the show outside of Taurus Bulba.
* GenreSavvy: 'Cause he knew Darkwing wouldn't notice the giant flag.
* HumiliationConga: "Just Us, Justice Ducks" part 2.
* ImpersonatingTheEvilTwin: Done this twice as Darkwing.
* ImplacableMan: Not even being sucked into oblivion itself can stop him for very long.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: "When I throw... THE SWITCH!"
* KnightOfCerebus: After Taurus Bulba, he's the most dark of all Darkwing Duck's opponents despite his comic trials. Also, some of his actions are not funny.
* LackOfEmpathy
* LargeHam: Following EvilIsHammy, he's a bigger ham than Darkwing.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Negaduck is the worst villain. Fittingly, he tends to suffer the worst defeats.
* LaughablyEvil: Most of Darkwing's villains are, but he's the best example. It doesn't mean he's less evil tough.
* MultipleChoicePast: Much like Darkwing himself, there have been multiple Negaducks, each with a distinct origin.
** EnemyWithout: "Negaduck".
** MirrorUniverse: "Life, the Negaverse, and Everything".
** CainAndAbel: "The Secret Origins of Darkwing Duck". This version was also a SpacePirate.
** And that's not even getting into the {{Pirate}} version from "[[{{Elseworld}} Darkwing Dubloon]]".
* PsychoForHire
* RememberTheNewGuy: His first appearance in "Just Us, Justice Ducks", he appears out of nowhere and everybody already knows who he is. Unlike Liquidator and Quackerjack, who were introduced in the same episode, he isn't later given an episode showing how he first met Darkwing Duck, though he is given an origin.
* SomethingPerson
* TheSociopath
* SurroundedByIdiots
* TortureTechnician: And he thoroughly enjoys it, too.
--> "The science of pain! Oooh! Gives me ''chills!''
* ToThePain: "When I throw...THE SWITCH!"

!!'''Megavolt/Elmo Sputterspark'''

----

* BerserkButton: "Don't call me Sparky!"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: While always kooky, he's noticeably more unhinged in his final three appearances, Jail Bird, The Frequency Fiends, and Clash Reunion.

* DitzyGenius
* TheDragon
* EnemyMine: Teams up with Darkwing more than once.
* EvilLaugh
* FourthWallObserver: His entrance in "Frequency Fiends" has him complaining that the theme song is stuck in his head. Also, mistakes himself for a Scooby-Doo villain in "Clash Reunion" and corrects himself by admitting it was the wrong cartoon.

!!'''Dr. Reginald Bushroot'''

-> After having his funding pulled from his experiments with plants he experimented on himself and unintentionally turned himself into a plantduck capable of controlling plant life. His crimes usually involve him trying to fund his research (i.e. stealing), protecting plants or cure his loneliness.
----
Tropes associated with Bushroot:

!!'''Quackerjack'''

-> A deranged toymaker who turned to crime after the video game industry, mainly the game "Whiffle Boy" put him out of business. He creates lethal toys that look like normal ones, but he's infamous for his gigantic sized joke teeth. Voiced by Creator/MichaelBell.
----
Tropes associated with Quackerjack:
* BadassNormal
* BerserkButton: He hates video games with a passion.
** In #2 of the comic series, the mere mention of Negaduck's name causes Quackerjack to go utterly ''nuclear'' and wipe out an entire squad of Crimebots.

* CatchPhrase: "It's Playtime!"
* CompanionCube: Mr. Banana Brain.
* DarkChick

--> Quackerjack: " You're a ''genius!"''

* ToothyBird: Most bird characters has teeth in the show, but he shows them almost all the time. Plus, they're fake teeth to boot.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: His "wackiness". Negaduck is not too pleased to steal it in Jail Bird.

!!'''The Liquidator/Bud Flood'''

-> Originally a CorruptCorporateExecutive named Bud Flood who sold his [[CoolClearWater Bud Flood's Sparkling Crystal Pure Flood Water]] while [[GrimyWater he was contaminating his competition]] during a massive heatwave. Darkwing accidentally startled him and he dropped into a vat of water he'd contaminated. He then turned into a being of pure water with the ability to shape it, heat it, chill it and turn it into hard water. Only appeared with the Fearsome Five afterwards. His salespitch-centric dialogue was difficult to write and the ways to defeat him were quite limited; pairing him with the others made this less of a problem for the writers.
----
Tropes associated with The Liquidator:
* AndIMustScream: Just about any of the ways Liquidator could be stopped (turned into concrete or chocolate pudding, trapped in a small glass jar, trapped in a sponge) would qualify as this from his perspective.
* TheBrute
* CoolClearWater: What he advertised his water was.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* CreateYourOwnVillain
* DiminishingVillainThreat: Is A LOT easier to beat when he's part of the Fearsome Five than when he acted as own. Part of why his appearances were restricted was that there were few ways that he could be believably defeated when the episode revolved around him. Even then, at least one episode showed him restrained by a mundane rope.
* EnemyMine: Against [=NegaDuck=] who stole the rest of the Fearsome Five's powers.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In the second comic story arc, he was sucked into St. Canard's water bed against his will, but managed to escape and reveal to the city that whatever's in there ([[spoiler:Paddywhack]]) is more horrifying and dangerous than anything they've ever faced. He warns them to flee, as their lives are "a limited time offer!"
* LargeHam: Probably the only villain capable of rivaling Negaduck in the Ham department.
* LethalHarmlessPowers: Not that his powers were harmless to begin with, but with the level of control over water Liquidator had, imagine what he could have done. Start with boiling the water that is naturally part of the human (and presumably FunnyAnimal) body...
* MakingASplash
* {{Metamorphosis}}
* OnlySaneMan: Out of all the Fearsome Five, he's probably the most level headed member, company slogans not withstanding.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: He put his salespitch-inspired speaking style on hold to warn someone never to mention Negaduck within Quackerjack's hearing.
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: His hard water and boiling water abilities vanished, and his other abilities got scaled back after his solo appearance. Mainly, his hydrokinesis was mostly ignored in favor of simply shapeshifting his own body.
* PutAFaceOnTheCompany: Both before and after he changed into the The Liquidator, he constantly uses sales pitches with jargon like ButWaitTheresMore and OperatorsAreStandingBy.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Appears out of nowhere in "Just Us, Justice Ducks", which aired before his introductory episode, "Dry Hard". This was due to some disorganization in episode airing order.
* StoryBreakerPower: While most villains lose to Darkwing in a straight fight and are a threat mainly due to the episode's gimmick (And are only really fought for real near the end of the episode), almost all of Liquidator's introductory episode consists of Darkwing battling him to no effect.
* ThirdPersonPerson: During his sales pitches as the Liquidator.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Sponges. Cement mix. ''Chocolate pudding mix''. Getting trapped in a glass bottle. Very ironic, as he could survive electrocution, evaporation and other obviously lethal attacks unharmed.

* EvilMinions

!!'''[=NegaDuck=] I'''

Also, has a surprisingly TearJerker moment when he tells QQ to give DW Prime one of his "Last victories before he loses her" after having witnessed something in the time stream as they were brought to this Earth.
