The characters list for ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''.


!!The Main Characters

These are the characters that revolve around Darkwing and his inner circle. They are seen the most throughout the show.

[[folder:Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings
[[caption-width-right:303:"I am the ''terror'' that ''flaps in the night''!"]]

-> The series' protagonist is the egotistical yet clever hero of St. Canard. He works freelance in some episodes for the spy organization S.H.U.S.H., but otherwise seems to have no other job but as a crime fighter.
* ActionDad: To Gosalyn, endangering her is a quick way for him to [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]].
* AesopAmnesia: How many times did Darkwing learn to put aside his pride and get serious/ask for help/play well with others/etc.? Probably about once an episode.
* AffectionateNickname: He has two; Launchpad calls him "D.W." and Morgana calls him "Dark."
* AlliterativeName: When not in his civilian identity of Drake Mallard.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: In "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain", he refuses to believe that the events surrounding Paddywhack's box are supernatural for some time...this despite the fact that his girlfriend is a witch.
* 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.
* BadassBiker: When he rides his Ratcatcher.
* BadassNormal: Has no superpowers, but much like another [[Franchise/{{Batman}} caped crusader]], he pulls through with some impressive wit and athleticism.
* BattleCouple: With Morgana, mainly during the Justice Ducks two-parter.
* BerserkButton: NEVER touch Gosalyn.
* BigEgoHiddenDepths: "Inside Binkie's Brain" shows that while Darkwing Duck's 'inner hero' is fairly small, his ego is enormous. But this is a guy who puts his own life in danger for those he loves on a regular basis, adopted a little girl who desperately needed a father who understood her, and he even puts up with his royally annoying neighbors, Quackerware and all. "Life, the Negaverse, and Everything" shows how vitally important his role as father is to him.
* BreakTheHaughty: Most episodes deal with quelling, managing or outright deflating his massive ego so he can stop the bad guy.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: A capable crime fighter of his own right, but often hampered by his massive ego and short temper.
* CatchPhrase: several, including:
"Suck GAS, evildoer!"\\
"Yep, yep, yep."\\
"Singed, but triumphant."\\
"[[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.
* ChickMagnet: Darkwing managed to get kisses from Morgana, Neptunia, and the Princess of Oilrabia, along with charming other female characters so he definitely qualifies for this trope.
* CoatHatMask: Noticeable when asked about whether he should be prowling the city wearing a hat and mask, he asks 'What, no cape?'.
* CoolBike: The Ratcatcher. Not so much the Quackcycle, though.
* CoolPlane: The Thunderquack, a state of the art jet created by Launchpad as a homage to Darkwing.
* TheCowl: An AffectionateParody of the archetype, especially Franchise/{{Batman}} and Radio/TheShadow.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The badass part usually comes out if somebody threatens Gosalyn.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He's even mistaken for a robber in "Getting Antsy" by the Hamburger Hippo cashier.
* DatingCatwoman: With Morgana who initially started out as one of Darkwing's foes.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes. For example,
-->'''Gosalyn:''' There's something strange about that Bug Master.\\
'''Darkwing:''' Yeah, she's in a bug costume threatening a cockroach. I'd call that strange.
* DetectiveAnimal: Darkwing does detective work from time to time.
* {{Determinator}} No matter how much beating he takes, he still keeps going until the job is done.
* DistressedDude: Whether under a supervillain's doomsday device or under arrest, DW finds himself as this quite a bit.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Depending on the episode, usually this is played straight, with being treated with no respect from anyone, no matter how many times he's saved St. Canard. This often leads to trouble for those who underestimate them (especially other heroes with legitimate superpowers), because when he gets dangerous he can kick all their asses six ways to Sunday.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In "[[MultiArmedAndDangerous Aducky]][[HowDoIShotWeb phobia]]" and "[[SuperSpeed Going Nowhere Fast]]".
* FatalFlaw: Drake's {{Pride}} often stops him from stopping the bad guy a lot sooner than he does. It also causes him to lash out at his family and other heroes when he feels they are stealing his spotlight.
* GadgeteerGenius: He's not one to do things halfway, and that includes his superhero gear.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Has the [[CoatHatMask coat, hat, mask]] and cape, but no pants to complete the outfit.
* HandicappedBadass: In "[[TemporaryBlindness Duck Blind]]", where he's temporarily blinded and "[[GeniusCripple Steerminator]]", where he spends the episode in a wheelchair, he still manages to save the day.
* HugeGirlTinyGuy: Compared to willowy Morgana, he's quite short.
* TheHero: Any other time, he would be the ideal [[TheLancer Lancer]], but since it's his show...
* HeroWithBadPublicity: A parody of the concept, to the point where he is pretty much loathed by much of St. Canard, despite putting his neck on the line for the city. In "Dead Duck", it's even revealed that when he died, they didn't even bother giving him a proper burial.
* IKnowKungFaux: Darkwing knows Quack Fu.
* ImpersonatingTheEvilTwin: Done this twice as [=NegaDuck=].
* InformedLoner: Being a ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' Expy, Darkwing tries to pull off being a loner at times, but (as with Batman) it's a bit hollow given that he has [[LoveInterest Morgana]], [[HeterosexualLifePartners Launchpad]], and [[HappilyAdopted Gosalyn]] around, as well as being a member of the Justice Ducks.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Honker to an extent, he let him in his inner circle and is the only person in the Muddlefoot clan he can stand.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can go toe-to-toe with WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck in a match of egos, but his thirst for attention is far from mean-spirited and he does come around to doing the right thing, especially if his loved ones are at stake.
* LargeHam: By far the largest, particularly when he's monologuing.
* LetsGetDangerous: The literal TropeNamer, which announces the shift to the {{Badass}} part of his CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass side.
* MadeOfIron: He gets smashed, squished, pummelled, and anything else the villain can do to him, but he's still going.
--> '''Darkwing Duck''': Darkwing Duck emerges again, singed but triumphant!
* MagneticHero: His real superpower. Though he annoys the heck out of everyone, he's good at drawing allies and leading them in battle.
* MoralityPet: To Morgana in Ghoul of My Dreams.
* MrViceGuy: With {{Pride}} as his vice. He's supremely arrogant, leading him to alienate allies and boast like a Bond villain... but there's a reason he named Let's Get Dangerous: that pride is almost all justified, when he actually takes problems seriously.
* MultipleChoicePast: Especially when it comes to his SuperHeroOrigin.
* TheNapoleon: To a certain degree.
* NiceHat: His hero hat is a great complement to his stylish costume.
* PapaWolf: Do NOT, under ''any'' circumstances, endanger or threaten Gosalyn. It's the best way to turn him from an egomaniac to a {{Badass}}.
* PartTimeHero: He originally was a full time hero, but dialed the heroing back so he could raise Gosalyn.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Darkwing is reasonably short, and often faces villains (or there thugs) who are larger than him. Doesn't mean he has any trouble handling them though.
* PurpleIsPowerful: He wears purple and at least ''tries'' to come off as a powerful superhero. How well it works depends on the situation.
* RealMenWearPink: Literally. Drake Mallard's typical outfit is a green sweater vest and pink collared shirt, and he wears a purple costume (with the cape being pink on the inside) as Darkwing. He's also a loving parent to his daughter, whom he raises together with his sidekick/Heterosexual Life Partner Launchpad [=McQuack=].
* RedOniBlueOni: HotBlooded Darkwing and easygoing Launchpad are often in the same scene, the better to contrast the two. Some aspects associated with the archtype are played with, however -- Launchpad, the Blue Oni, is a redhead who wears a maroon pilot's jacket, and Darkwing, the Red Oni, wears softer, darker colors. (It's also a rare case of the Blue Oni also being TheDitz.)
* SecretIdentityIdentity: Didn't need a civilian identity anymore until he adopted Gosalyn.
* ShamelessSelfPromoter: He has absolutely no embarrassment over acting as his own P.R. manager.
--> '''Darkwing:''' [To policeman] Another order of dastardly delinquents delivered on your doorstep, courtesy of Darkwing Duck! That's two words, not three, both Ds capitalized. Here's my photo. If the papers need more glossies my number's on the card.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Darkwing is one of the shortest adult characters in the show and is one of the smartest, certainly smarter than his towering sidekick, Launchpad.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Until he [[LetsGetDangerous gets serious]].
* SomethingPerson: As Darkwing Duck, Arachnoduck and Teapot Duck.
* SuperHero: Sure he (normally) does not have superpowers and he usually is full of himself, but he has enough brains, skill and gadgets to beat villains who do have superpowers.
* SuperheroesWearCapes: A brilliant purple cape, that unfortunately [[CapeSnag has worked against him]] now and again.
* SupernaturalProofFather: In "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain". An unusual case in that (given that Darkwing is a single parent) there is no mother to whom to compare him. However, both Launchpad and Gosalyn recognize that the bizarre events surrounding the box are supernatural before Darkwing admits that it isn't just Gosalyn playing pranks and Launchpad freaking out.
* TerrorHero: Well, he ''tries'' to be one, anyway.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Morgana is almost twice his height, even without her gravity-defying hair.
* ThirdPersonPerson: When monologuing, he'll frequently refer to himself as though he were another person.
* TripleShifter: He used to have no problems with this he did his crimefighting thing at night and slept during the day. Now that he has to be a single dad during the day, one has to wonder when he gets to sleep. Although if you've seen seen Gosalyn in action, it's obvious parental supervision is a sometimes thing.
* VitriolicBestBuds: A one-sided version with Launchpad. Launchpad gets on Darkwing's nerves a lot, despite their being HeterosexualLifePartners.
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: Darkwing Duck has all sort of crime fighting gadgets and equipment, many of them supplied by S.H.U.S.H.. What's puzzling is how he manage to build his own lair inside a bridge tower without anyone noticing it.

[[folder:Launchpad [=McQuack=]]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Terry [=McGovern=]

-> Darkwing's sidekick, pilot and back-up Darkwing. Since he never changes his clothing when he goes crime fighting with Darkwing, it's a wonder why anyone else can't figure out who he is. Formerly worked for [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Scrooge McDuck]] in Duckburg.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: The name just rolls off the tongue.
* BigEater: See any episode where he goes to Hamburger Hippo.
* TheBigGuy: The tallest and strongest of Darkwing's group.
* CaptainCrash: Weirdly enough, subverted for the most part. Per his reputation from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', he's often ''mentioned'' to be this, but his landing skills are actually ''far'' better in this series. He usually crashes only when shot down and can otherwise land fine, making this more of an InformedFlaw.
* CivvieSpandex: He wears his pilot's outfit just about everywhere, even when he's fighting crime with Darkwing.
%%* CloudCuckoolander
* TheDitz: Though better than he was in WesternAnimation/DuckTales.
* FieryRedhead: {{Averted|Trope}}. Despite being a redhead, he's actually the person in the house who's least likely to get angry, generally playing the GentleGiant to the [[BrattyHalfPint snarky and somewhat bratty]] Gosalyn and the {{hot blooded}} Darkwing.
* FriendToAllChildren: Gosalyn and Honker (the two major non-villainous child characters) both have a positive relationship with him. See also IntergenerationalFriendship.
* GeniusDitz: Despite being an incredibly incompetent sidekick, he built the Thunderquack (Dark's plane) all by himself and is apparently a brilliant mechanic. He's even better flying the thing! Even his landings are generally better than they were in ''Duck Tales'' (although his reputation as a CaptainCrash still precedes him).
* GentleGiant: Launchpad is loaded with muscle and towers over Darkwing and Gosalyn, but he'd never hurt a fly. In fact, he has has a big heart to match his [[TopHeavyGuy top heavy build]], and is always there to help Darkwing out of the many difficult spots he gets into.
* GogglesDoNothing: He can get away with wearing them because he's a pilot, but he really does not use them all that much.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Launchpad and Darkwing live together, work together, and raise Gosalyn together.
* HonestCorporateExecutive: [[spoiler: When he's appointed as the new CEO of Quackwerks, he actually does a lot of good with the company and former Crimebots/now Herobots.]]
* ImYourBiggestFan: When he realizes who Darkwing is after their first meeting, he excitedly introduces himself as "your biggest fan." [[DudeWheresMyRespect Darkwing]] perks up at the fact that he ''has'' a fan.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Gosalyn and Honker, it helps that he has some childlike tendencies and is usually very easy going. He also calls Honker his little buddy.
* InterspeciesRomance: At one point, he almost married Tia, an alien queen.
* LethalChef: In "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E15CantBayouLove Can't Bayou Love]]", he bakes brownies that immediately send Darkwing to the water cooler for a long drink. He does mention that he had to substitute ingredients as he couldn't find all of them, but what exactly he substituted is never made clear.
* LimitedWardrobe: Launchpad's apparent lack of another outfit [[LampshadeHanging came up in passing]] more than once.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Launchpad, who already had a number of heroic feats under his belt before coming to St. Canard, goes into full-on fanboy mode upon realizing the guy who fell through his roof is Darkwing Duck. In an unusual case, Darkwing (eventually) accepts him as a sidekick, so he winds up working with his hero on a regular basis as opposed to a one-time mission.
* ManicPixieDreamGuy: He is revealed to have played this role for a young alien princess named Tia in "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E57UFFoe U.F. Foe]]." Growing up, Tia was so focused on learning what she needed to know that she never slowed down and relaxed. The easygoing Launchpad "gave [her] the gift of laughter" and she fell in love with him partially on that basis. It's even deconstructed a bit, given that Launchpad points out that fun isn't the only important component of a relationship.
* NiceGuy: While Launchpad has things which set him off, he's generally quite easygoing, patient, and friendly.
* PapaWolf:
** During "Dead Duck", Launchpad tries to step into Darkwing's role of protecting Gosalyn. He gets [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] by Megavolt during a scene cut.
** Additionally, during "Time And Punishment", the Launchpad from the BadFuture Gosalyn ends up in kayoes [[KnightTemplar Darkwarrior]] with a frying pan after he threatens Gosalyn.
* RedIsHeroic: Launchpad's pilot jacket is a maroon color.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Wears it as much as he does the goggles but [[RuleOfCool it's a good look for him]].
* SecretPublicIdentity: Launchpad is often seen with Darkwing Duck as his sidekick ... yet none of the myriad villains, criminals, police officers or autograph hounds seem to care enough to look him up in the Saint Canard phone book. Except one time, when Launchpad was mistakenly reported to be Darkwing himself. Justified as one villain referred to Honker, Gosalyn and Launchpad as Darkwing's Fan Club, so people think they just follow him around.
* {{Sidekick}}: Serves as this for Darkwing from most of the show.
* StalkerWithoutACrush: During "Darkly Dawns the Duck". From the moment he crashes through Launchpad's ceiling during an opening chase with Taurus Bulba, Darkwing cannot get rid of the pilot. Launchpad isn't in love with Darkwing; he's just a fanboy who wants to make a good impression on his favorite real-life superhero. Darkwing ultimately finds this to be a positive thing as Launchpad proves to be the only source of help he has, given that he's alienated everybody else.
* TopHeavyGuy: Very brawny upper body and long, thin legs.
* TookALevelInBadass: {{Inverted|Trope}}. Going from private pilot to superhero's sidekick might seem like a step up, but in ''Darkwing Duck'', Launchpad displays a lot less of an ActionHero side than he did in ''Duck Tales''.
* {{Transplant}}: From ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
* UndyingLoyalty: Launchpad is always loyal to Darkwing, in spite of the duck knight's HeroWithBadPublicity status, GlorySeeker nature, and snarking at his expense. Even on the (extremely rare) occasions when he's angry at him, he'll usually step up to help him again if Darkwing is actually in trouble.
* UniversalDriversLicense: If it has wings, he can crash it.
* VitriolicBestBuds: A one-sided version with Darkwing. While Darkwing will not let anyone get away with messing with Launchpad, he frequently finds him irritating. Launchpad rarely minds his partner's insults and is [[UndyingLoyalty fiercely loyal]] to him.

[[folder:Gosalyn Mallard]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ChristineCavanaugh

-> Drake's adopted daughter, she's a spunky, thrill-seeking trouble maker. She often goes on Darkwing's missions even though he normally wants her stay home, where she's safe. [[RunningGag She never cleans her room]].
* BrattyHalfPint: She has her moments where she does little but irritate every villain she comes across. She is also a handful for Drake and her teachers.
* CatchPhrase:
-->"Keen gear!"\\
"Cool beans!"\\
"Major league impressive!"
* CuteBruiser: Resilient and cunning, Gos can put up a fight when she needs to.
* DaddysGirl: As much as she can get on Darkwing's nerves, he'd do anything to make sure Gosalyn was safe and happy. She adores him, and he adores her and goes into full PapaWolf mode if someone even threatens to harm her. Since she has no mother figure, she is also feisty and tomboyish and is eager to join her dad in fighting crime (he's not so keen on the idea as he doesn't like seeing her endanger herself).
* FieryRedhead: Gosalyn is fierce and spirited and has red hair. In her first scene in "Darkly Dawns the Duck", she is playing roller hockey and hits the puck through the window onto Hammerhead's nose. She jumps through the window, shouts "Play it where it lands!", and hits the puck so hard it knocks the opposing goaltender back into his net.
* GirlishPigtails: The girliest thing about her.
* HappilyAdopted: While she and Darkwing have their disagreements, she clearly loves him just as much as if he were her real father.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Has this with Launchpad who sometimes acts like an older brother.
* KidAppealCharacter: Type 3, she's a little kid and regularly ends up getting into trouble, but she's adventurous and determined and usually finds a way to be useful.
* {{Kid Hero}}ine: When she is Quiverwing Quack or the Crimson Quackette. Issue #4 of the comic series adds another identity: [[spoiler: Gosmoduck.]]
* KidSidekick: To Darkwing, unofficially.
* TheLancer: She snarks, is free spirited and gives Darkwing a hard time.
* TheLadette: Meddles in her dad's superheroics, leads his fan club, plays hockey, plays video games, hits, snarks, [[MouthyKid trash talks]], threatens, wears spots jerseys. Yes, all very lady-like. This frequently gets the attention of next-door neighbor Binkie Muddlefoot, who finds it inappropriate.
* LittleMissBadass: Especially as Quiverwing Quack, but even as herself she can usually hold her own.
* LittleMissSnarker: Usually when Darkwing needs an ego check. Though Darkwing snarks back just as much.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: "Time and Punishment" shows that is Gosalyn ever left, Darkwing might completely break down.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Masculine Girl to Honker's Feminine Boy.
* MoralityChain: "Time and Punishment" demonstrates that Darkwing might go KnightTemplar if anything happened to Gosalyn.
* MoralityPet: Gosalyn is probably the one person Darkwing loves more than himself.
* NightmareFetishist: In "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E54TheHauntingOfMrBananaBrain The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain]]", she wants to hear the story of Darkwing's encounter with [[MonsterClown Paddywhack]] as a bedtime story.
* OneOfTheBoys: There is only a few things that Gosalyn does that really can be considered girly. More often than not though she roughhousing tomboy.
* OrphansPlotTrinket: The lullaby from her grandfather.
* RedOniBlueOni: Played straight with her and Honker. She is a rowdy FieryRedhead while he is a shy ChildProdigy. They get along quite well, but needless to say, it's an OddFriendship.
* SignificantGreeneyedRedhead: Although the fiery personality still comes through loud and clear.
* {{Tomboy}}: Though WordOfGod states that the daughter in question was 2 when Gosalyn was designed and Gosalyn was based on what the writer thought his daughter would be like when she got to Gosalyn's canon age.

[[folder:Herbert "Honker" Muddlefoot Jr.]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Katie Leigh

-> The youngest son of Drake's neighbors and Gosalyn's best friend. Honker has a high IQ and has helped Darkwing, Launchpad and Gosalyn many times using it. He is also shy and tries to get Gosalyn to listen to her dad, normally to no avail.
* {{Adorkable}}: He's nerdy, shy, quiet, slightly socially awkward and soft-spoken. But it's what makes him liked as a character.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: [[spoiler:Briefly becomes a giant monster when infected by the evil slime in ''Dangerous Currency''.]]
* CowardlyLion: Sometimes. Usually he's not very good with confrontations, but ''is'' very brave.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Despite being usually no more than a SatelliteCharacter, Honker did star in the episodes, "The Revenger of the Return of The Brainteasers", "Calm a Chameleon" and "Rebel Without a Cause".
* ExpospeakGag: Does this on occasion, prompting Darkwing/Drake and Gosalyn to tell him to spit it out.
* ExtremeDoormat: Seen slightly when bending to Gosalyn more dominate personality and more prominently when getting bullied by Tank.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Honker [[ShipTease seems at times to have a crush on Gosalyn]], who is redhaired.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Darkwing and Launchpad, while the former lets him in his inner circle and takes his advice from time to time but ultimately is still a parental figure, the latter has more of a bond with Honker and calls him little buddy.
* KidSidekick: To Darkwing unofficially and to Gosalyn; when she is Quiverwing Quack, he is the Arrow Kid.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Gosalyn's Masculine Girl.
* OnlySaneMan: Between the other main characters and his family, he's the most normal.
* TheReliableOne: Always by Gosalyn's side when he needs her, no matter what cockamamie idea she ropes him into or how much trouble danger they get into. She usually doesn't even have to convince him.
* SatelliteCharacter: Albeit an often used and very important one, but his main connection to the plot is still that he's Gosalyn's best friend and he never appears outside of that niche.
* SecretKeeper: It isn't explained how he found out, but he clearly knows that Drake Mallard is Darkwing Duck, as he's addressed Darkwing as "Mr. Mallard" and Drake and Gosalyn sometimes openly discuss his secret while Honker is in earshot.
* StraightMan: See OnlySaneMan.
* TheShortGuyWithGlasses: He's BlindWithoutEm.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: The shortest of the principal cast and is indeed smarter than Gos and LP. While it's harder to determine if he's smarter than Darkwing, he certainly has more common sense.
* TheSmartGuy: As mentioned above, Darkwing may be as smart as Honker but he has a grasp of many advanced scientific disciplines including molecular biology and chemistry as well as reptilian physiology and classic art and literature at age 9.

!!The Justice Ducks

When the Fearsome Five formed to take over St. Canard, Darkwing had to put his ego aside (but not before throwing a tantrum about wanting to be the only superhero in the city and being beaten by the Fearsome Five four times) and form a FiveManBand of unique individuals to face them. The team itself only appears in the two parter "Just Us Justice Ducks" but the members make other appearances in the show.

[[folder:Gizmoduck/Fenton Crackshell]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HamiltonCamp

-> The high-tech hero of [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Duckburg]] who is Launchpad's old work friend, Fenton, an accountant for [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Scrooge McDuck]]. Darkwing, a HeroWithBadPublicity in St. Canard, is jealous of how Gizmo Duck is universally accepted and trusted by the city. In turn, Gizmo Duck doesn't like Darkwing's vigilantism. Despite this however, they work well together, when they put the petty stuff aside.
* TheAce: Fenton Crackshell the person is rarely seen in the show, so all the audience sees is Gizmo Duck unintentionally show Darkwing up with St. Canard's admiration of him and his skill as a hero.
* AffectionateParody: Of Franchise/{{Robocop}}.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Whenever Gizmoduck guest stars, he adds this element to the story. He is a truer, nobler, more all around impressive and famous superhero than Darkwing, apparently upstaging him without even noticing. On the first such occasion, Darkwing suffered the traditional inferiority complex that such a plot calls for, but after that episode disproved Gizmoduck's true superiority conclusively, Darkwing has since never shown any sign of Gizmoduck envy. Even so, during that first episode and every Gizmoduck episode since, Darkwing always resents him, treats him as unwelcome and unnecessary competition, even thinks of him as The Rival, despite Gizmoduck's routinely demonstrated and explicitly stated refusal to consider competitiveness as a motive fit for a true hero. This, if anything, only serves to infuriate Darkwing further, and despite Gizmoduck's repeated requests for mutually beneficial cooperation, he finds himself feuding with Darkwing again and again. It could be said that Darkwing himself is The Rival, and Gizmoduck is The Hero, despite the fact that Darkwing invariably triumphs in the end regardless of whether he agrees to team up with Gizmoduck, and in every episode where Gizmoduck is absent, Darkwing is unquestionably The Hero.
* BreakTheHaughty: At least once in the show.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: "Blathering blatherskite!"
* TheCape: An AffectionateParody of this, in the same way Darkwing is an AffectionateParody of TheCowl.
--> "I am here out of my sense of civic duty! I go where I am needed, no matter how big or how small the crime!"
* CatchPhrase: Also "Blathering blatherskite!"
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: His costume basically consists of all his gadgets.
* DoAnythingRobot: The suit is programed to do anything and use anything within it. From helicopter headgear all the way to giant sponges.
* HeadbuttingHeroes: He and Darkwing don't get along at all, though this sometimes turns into VitriolicBestBuds when Darkwing gets over his ego and Giz shows off his better nature.
* TheLancer: Shares this role with Gosalyn when he appears. Any other time, he would be the ideal [[TheHero Hero]], but since it's Darkwing's show...
* LargeHam
--> "This situation calls for the unique gizmo talents of ''GIZMODUCK!''"
* RousingSpeech: Fond of long, rambling, highly hammy and intentionally narmful inspirational speeches [[ShutUpKirk that almost always end with someone getting the better of him.]]
* SomethingPerson: He is a duck with a lot of gizmos.
* SuperHero: A long-standing beloved superhero.
* {{Transplant}}: From ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
* VocalEvolution: His in-character voice as Gizmo was less booming than it was back on ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' and sounded much closer to his natural speaking voice as Fenton.

[[folder:Morgana [=McCawber=]]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Voiced by Creator/KathSoucie

-> A sorceress and former CEO of "[=McCawber's=] Mushrooms" who shared a mutual attraction with Darkwing. Initially, she was a criminal, but eventually reforms, becomes Darkwing's girlfriend and earns his trust learning his secret identity. Almost always by her side is her three [[{{Familiar}} familiars]], the bats Eek and Squeak and her grumbling tarantula Archie.
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Her appearance fits this, she is significantly taller than Darkwing (and most other characters), and more developed than any other female on the show, with white feathers and black hair. She starts out very cool, but vampy, and very elegant. As she develops she becomes less aloof, but remains considerably more mature than Darkwing.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Initially.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Though she started off evil, she remained dark when she became good.
* DatingCatwoman: The Catwoman to Darkwing's Batman.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: White feathers (skin) are pretty typical in Duckburg, but Morgana completes the look with her dark, Frankenstein's Bride hair and her penchant for the macabre.
* {{Expy}}: Her dress is similar in design to that of [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Morticia Addams]] and she is also similar to [[Series/TheMunsters Lily Munster]] for having black hair with a white streak and being part of a MonsterMash family.
* FemmeFatalons: She had a set when she was villainous and still appeared when she became good, but not as much.
* FriendlyEnemy: With Darkwing before her reformation, to the point she ends up teaming with him against the other villains in each appearance.
* HairTriggerTemper: Can go from zero to furious in record time, though some of the things Darkwing says to get her riled up ''are'' pretty bad. Especially when she's stressed out, watch what you say around her if you don't want to get zapped.
* HeelFaceTurn: In "Ghoul of My Dreams", Morgana's feelings for Darkwing and the treachery of the episode's villain, Nodof, started the turn. By the time the Justice Ducks episodes happened, she was definitely on the side of good.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In the comics. She is brought back at the end of ''Dangerous Currency'', which is now considered non-canon. The Joe Books omnibus, however, ends its revision of "Campaign Carnage" with her pets Eek, Squeak, and Archie happily looking at a glowing crystal ball, implying that she is still alive somewhere.]]
* HotWitch: She is a powerful sorceress and, unlike the rest of the [=McCawber=] family, she is really attractive.
* LadyInRed: She wears red dress which ties in with her dark seductive character.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: She's elegant and composed, but cross her and she'll turn you into pudding or worse.
* LethalChef: An odd case. The food she cooks certainly sounds and looks disgusting, but Darkwing is the only one in-universe who even seems to notice. Everyone else ''loves'' it.
* ALighterShadeOfBlack: In her first two appearances as villain, compared to Nodoff and board of directors for MacCawber's Mushrooms Unlimited.

* TheVamp: Only acted this way in her first appearance, afterwards, she was either a conflicted villain or a hero.

->'''Voiced by:''' Joey Camen

-> A former duck janitor transformed into a stegosaurus by the MadScientist Dr. Fossil. Well meaning and friendly, Stegmutt is also powerful, destructive, gullible and pretty clumsy.
* AccidentalHero: Stopped Quackerjack's gigantic joke teeth from terrorizing St. Canard's citizens and then smacked the villain away with his tail when he was being snarky to him. All of this was done when Stegmutt wasn't paying attention.
* {{Adorkable}}: Stegmutt's klutziness mixed with his childlike innocence and big heart makes him this trope.
* AlmightyJanitor: Before his transformation he literally was a janitor, afterwards, he works as a hot dog vendor.
* CatchPhrase:
-->"Oh Boy!"\\
"Oops, sorry."
* BewareMyStingerTail: Being a stegosaurus. He sometimes knocks people into a wall with his tail accidentally when he gets too excited.
* TheBigGuy: Takes this role from Launchpad in the episodes when he's a hero. He's by far the strongest member of the Justice Ducks.
* CowardlyLion: He's REALLY strong physically, but despite that, he tends to scare pretty easily.
* DestructiveSavior[=/=]DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: He can destroy things but just by slightly tapping them.
* DumbDinos: Stegmutt is good-hearted but not too bright.

* GiantMook: Was one under Dr. Fossil.
* HeelFaceTurn: Initially, fought for the wrong side, but soon learned that Dr. Fossil was crazy and his plan would ruin the world (for starters, no more chocolate-covered sandwich cookies).
* HonorBeforeReason: Darkwing, pressed for time to stop Liquadator and Bushroot, bought a hot dog from Stegmutt. So determined to give Darkwing his change back, he ends up endangering Darkwing and then tricked into a game of "Put out the Darkwing".
* IgnorantMinion: Gosalyn and Honker had to tell him that Dr. Fossil was evil, even though he practically did little to hide his true nature.
* {{Keet}}: The simplest things excite him.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: Stegmutt has shown no signs of changing back into a duck.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Partially, because he wasn't evil, and until Gosalyn and Honker told him otherwise, he didn't think Dr. Fossil was either.
* SuperStrength: One of the things that makes him both a threat and a liability.
* StockDinosaurs: He's a walking, talking ''Stegosaurus''.

->'''Voiced by:''' Susan Silo

-> Originally a regular fish who was transformed by toxic chemicals, she was angered at St. Canard for polluting the ocean. She initially sought her {{revenge}}, but came to terms with Darkwing, who is helping to keep trash out of the ocean. She controls sea creatures by [[MagicMusic playing a song through a conch shell]] and also wields a trident. Often seen with her companion, a giant octopus named Hal.
* CuteBruiser: A tiny little fish with tons of power. She even can swim in the Liquidator and force him to spin around.
* DeadpanSnarker: One of the snarliest.
* FishPerson: Not a duck and, unlike Stegmutt, never "used to be".
* GoodIsNotNice: Not the most sociable around land-dwellers and can be downright nasty when angered, but when innocents are in danger (land-dwellers included) she steps up and takes action.
* HairTriggerTemper: She is quick to anger, of which Darkwing and Liquidator have felt most of her wrath.
* HeelFaceTurn: She never really was a villain in the traditional sense and only threatened St. Canard because she was protecting her home. After she and Darkwing worked it out, she became his ally.

* {{Metamorphosis}}: Changed into an anamorphic fish woman and cannot change back into a normal fish.
* TheNapoleon: Look at the other tropes, this does not come as a surprise.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Depicted as such in her first appearance, less so in her later ones.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Her trident
* SourSupporter: Doesn't exactly like the surface world and isn't interested in being its protector at all, but [[ChangedMyMindKid her good heart makes her come back after seeing she's really needed.]]
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: With the exception of her right-hand octopus, who has to mime because he doesn't have a mouth.
* SuperStrength: Once threw Darkwing across half of St. Canard.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Eyelashes, prominent pink lips and pink ridges above her eyes.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: See HeelFaceTurn.


A peacekeeping super-secret organization headed by J. Gander Hooter, trusted with handling international affairs - usually involving their primary foe, F.O.W.L. - that the regular authorities cannot. When S.H.U.S.H. is in need of a more unorthodox solution, they bring in Darkwing Duck. The organization is ''so'' secret that not even its leader knows what "S.H.U.S.H." stands for.

[[folder:J. Gander Hooter]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Danny Mann

-> [[TheSpymaster The head]] of S.H.U.S.H. who brings Darkwing Duck in on several F.O.W.L. missions.
* BenevolentBoss: Absent-minded, a bit on the eccentric side, but an effective and fair mission control to Darkwing and the agents of S.H.U.S.H., generous with praise and sternly serious about getting results on protecting the world from F.O.W.L.
* TheCommissionerGordon: Has a similar relationship the trope namer had with Franchise/{{Batman}}.
* MissionControl: To Darkwing when he's assigned to S.H.U.S.H. assignments.
* OnlySaneMan: Probably the most rational character in the entire series.
* PunnyName: A pun on the name of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Aids Darkwing with whatever he needs for his missions and tries to keep him and Grizzlikof from killing each other.

[[folder:Agent Vladimir Grizzlikof]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Ron Feinberg

-> The head agent of S.H.U.S.H. who clashes with Darkwing on how to handle F.O.W.L.. He is the antithesis to Darkwing, operating strictly and uncompromisingly by the S.H.U.S.H. handbook.
* CommanderContrarian: He often objects to J. Gander Hooter's relationship with Darkwing Duck, and the latter's involvement with S.H.U.S.H.'s cases, because Darkwing isn't an agent and doesn't follow the S.H.U.S.H. rulebook.
* GeniusBruiser: He is both an intelligent agent and extremely strong.
* HuskyRusskie: As the name might suggest, he is Russian, and he is most definitely husky.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He never gets along with Darkwing Duck, but can work together with him when he needs to and does desire to do good.
* {{Malaproper}}: He tends to confuse his words. For example, in the episode "Dirty Money", he says "obstinate course" when he means "obstacle course".

* TheRival: To Darkwing on S.H.U.S.H. matters.
* RussianGuySuffersMost: Darkwing's antics frequently result in him being humiliated.

* AbsentMindedProfessor: She is not always focusing on what is important.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: She has this appearance due to having black hair and white feathers and can also be unnerving because of her lack of concern when her inventions cause problems.
* GadgeteerGenius: She makes different devices for Darkwing to use on his S.H.U.S.H. missions.
* HotScientist: She is a scientist and inventor working for S.H.U.S.H. and she isn't by any means unattractive.
* LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine: Her usual attire.
* MadScientist: It is occasionally implied that she isn't all there.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Some of her methods of testing her inventions are rather... reckless, and she's quite willing to use other people as subjects.

!!Other Allies

Other characters that Darkwing has worked with.

[[folder:Comet Guy]]
->'''Voiced by:''' William Callaway

-> A humanoid {{Superhero}} who lives on Mertz, [[EveryoneIsASuper a planet of superheroes]] with only one "ordinary guy" to save. Initially, he was a failure due to his lack of intelligence and his weakness, when hearing a bell ring, he dances uncontrollably until he hears a whistle. Darkwing trains him to turn his weaknesses into strengths and save the day.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: He and all other inhabitants of Mertz look like humans, which is very odd considering that everyone else on the show is an anthropomorphic animal.
* BaldOfAwesome: While he had hair in his first appearance, "Planet of the Capes" depicts him as bald.
* BiggerOnTheInside: His spaceship-helmet, which could somehow fit both him and Darkwing inside it when they traveled to his home planet.
* CatchPhrase: Utters a weak "woopsie" whenever he screws up.

* SomethingPerson: Being a superhero, it comes with the territory.
* SuperStrength: He is very strong, a trait shared many inhabitants of his home planet.
* TopHeavyGuy: A very triumphant example of this trope. With so much mass in his upper body, it's amazing he can still walk with his small legs.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The bell thing.

[[folder:Goose Lee]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Robert Ito

-> Darkwing's master in Quack Fu, who is at first disappointed at him for not learning the "belly bounce" technique and for using gadgets and weapons to fight with. He was corrupted by money and fame and tried to use a dragon in his plans to take over Kung Pow city. Darkwing stops the dragon in the end using the "belly bounce" and earns his master's respect.
* {{Acrofatic}}: Quite pudgy, but capable of handsprings and backflips
* BrokenPedestal: After Darkwing realizes that Goose Lee had gone evil.
* FooFu: Quack Fu
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Started as a face (when he was training Darkwing), got corrupt more recently but still prior to the episode, and turned face again during it.
* KarmaHoudini: Darkwing doesn't punish him for his actions and he even gets the theme park he wanted. Though he is at least remorseful for what he's unleashed...
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Mainly [[BruceLeeClone Bruce Lee]] (his name) and Pat Morita (his voice, changing from traditional Asian to more American sounding).
* OldMaster: He trained Darkwing in martial arts.
* WellDoneSonGuy: To Darkwing.

->'''Voiced by:''' Jim Cummings

-> When Darkwing was accidentally zapped by Megavolt's tron splitter, he was separated into purely good and purely evil halves. The good half was nice to a fault. However, after being galvanized via another zap from the tron splitter, he ends up becoming supercharged and able to save the day even with his pacifistic tendencies. Was remerged with [=NegaDuck I=] back into the regular Darkwing.
* ActualPacifist: Incapable of violence, even in self-defense.
* BadassPacifist: Despite being so nonviolent he won't even stop on a bug, he manages to simultaneously get out of a deathtrap his dark side put him in and free a trapped Launchpad and Gosalyn. He even knocked [=NegaDuck I=] out by ''complete accident.''
* ButtMonkey: Due to being identical in appearance to his evil counterpart, combined with his unwillingness to fight back, he ends up taking a lot of abuse at the hands of [=NegaDuck I=]'s victims.
* GoodIsImpotent: His unwillingness to resort to combat makes him completely ineffective in stopping [=NegaDuck=]'s rampage at first.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Turned UpToEleven post-galvanization.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: Darkwing's good half.
* MistakenForBadass: Upon stepping into a BadGuyBar that [=NegaDuck=] I had just terrorized about a minute ago.
* NiceGuy: He doesn't bear any hostility, not even to those who attack him when they mistake him for [=NegaDuck=].

!!![=PosiDuck=] post-galvanization, in addition to most of the above:
* AnAesop: He continuously spouts these off, even when it's falling on deaf ears.
* BatmanGambit: He manipulates [=NegaDuck=] I's destructive habits in such a way as to ''completely undo all of the destruction caused by him in a single move.''
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Inverted Negaduck I's WalkingWasteland, he repairs everything he gets near.
* LightIsGood: He is Darkwing's good half and now has a bright glow around his body.
* PowerGlows: A ''pink'' aura, no less.
* RealityWarper: Seems to be capable of freely mending and restoring any sort of damage done to St. Canard.
* SuperMode: The galvanization significantly boosted [=PosiDuck=]'s abilities.
* TookALevelInBadass: He's able to "[[ActualPacifist fight]]" the super-charged [=Negaduck=] I to a standstill without even laying so much as a finger on him.

[[folder:Whiffle Boy]]

-> Star of the fictional [[ShowWithinAShow video game in the series]]. When Darkwing was once trapped inside his video game, he teamed up with Whiffle (controlled by Gosalyn in the real world) to fight his way out.
* CatchPhrase: "Whiffle, ho!"
* {{Expy}}: He's clearly based on Franchise/MegaMan.
* OneHitPointWonder: One successful hit is enough to take him out.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: He gets repeatedly killed by his enemy, the Weasel, and once [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally by Darkwing]]. Justified, since he's a video game character.

[[folder:Rubber Chicken]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/CoreyBurton

-> A stretchable hero who only shows up in the episode "Mutantcy on the Bouncy". He helps Darkwing defeat Cement Head.
* {{Adorkable}}: He's rather likable due to being nervous all the time and desperately wanting to prove he's not a bad guy.
* AlliterativeName: His real name is Clovis Cluckenhoff.
* ClearMyName: He ends up at odds with Darkwing because Cement Head framed him for his crimes.
* ILoveNuclearPower: He was born with his powers because his parents were exposed to radiation at a plastics factory.
* MommasBoy: When Darkwing first attempts to arrest him, his first concern is what his mother will think of him getting in trouble with the law.
* PunnyName: It is probably no coincidence that he shares his name with a prop commonly used by comedians.
* RubberMan: He can stretch his body into any shape.

!!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.

[[folder:Herbert "Herb" and Binkie Muddlefoot]]
->Herb '''Voiced by:''' Jim Cummings (impersonating Andy Devine)
->Binkie '''Voiced by:''' Susan Tolsky
[[caption-width-right:281: Binkie (left) and Herb (right).]]

-> 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. Herb also loves to barbecue and watch his favorite show "[[GilligansIsland Pelican's Island]]". They are very friendly but also unintentionally intrusive and unaware how much of a brat their oldest son Tank is.
* AdultsAreUseless: They do absolutely nothing to punish Tank for bullying his brother Honker. In "You Sweat Your Life", Herb even implies that Tank cut off his grandfather's leg when he was a baby, yet he relates the story as if it's completely normal for your child to dismember your father or father-in-law.
* BerserkButton: Herb, of all characters, is shown to have one in "The Merchant of Menace" when facing off against evil salesman [[Theatre/DeathOfASalesman Weasel Loman]]
-->'''Weasel''': "Quackerware's a tenth rate product! It took me to realize its true potential!"\\
'''Herb''': "You can disgrace yourself, and you can disgrace ''me'', Weasel. But when you start messin' with Quackerware, that's it for old Herb Muddlefoot! Come on!"
* TheDitz: They're both pretty kooky.
* DropInCharacter: Both of them, but Herb mostly.
* HawaiianShirtedTourist: Herb always wears a Hawaiian shirt even when he's not on a holiday.
* LetsGetDangerous: Herb in one episode where he shows heretofore unknown sumo skills.
* {{Housewife}}: Binkie spends a lot of time cleaning the house and cooking.
* NiceGuy: They're an exceedingly friendly pair, even if they are exceedingly oblivious.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: They are extreme caricatures of [[LeaveItToBeaver Ward and June Cleaver.]]
* ParentalObliviousness: Their first kid is a brat, but they don't seem to notice.
* ProperLady: Binkie, who tries to get Gosalyn to act more lady-like as well.
* TookALevelInBadass: Binkie Muddlefoot when she hits her head and temporarily becomes "The Canardian Guardian, Champion Of Safety." Though half the things she tried to do to make things safe ended up making things hilariously worse...
* WikiWalk: A lot of Herb's conversations function this way.

[[folder:Tankard H. "Tank" Muddlefoot]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Dana Hill

-> He is a really mean little boy, which is something his parents fail to realize. Honker is his usual target, but he has also been known to make fun of Gosalyn and attack Drake.
* BigBrotherBully: He's Honker's older brother and loves to torment him.
* BrattyHalfPint: Despite his size, he still qualifies for this in spades.
* EvilRedhead: Not a lethally evil, but there's little good to be found with him.
* FieryRedhead: He has red hair and is often quite bellicose.
* InSeriesNickname: Everyone mostly refer to him as "Tank".
* JerkJock: He is tough and mean at the same time.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: In "A Brush With Oblivion" he has a surprising PetTheDog moment where he's the only one who sticks up for Honker [[TheCassandra when he's blamed for Splatter Phoenix's crimes]], and even helps him escape from the house after their parents ground him. Then after Honker's gone he immediately proceeds to tattle on him to Herb and Benkie, showing he helped Honker out just so he could get him in further trouble.
* {{Jerkass}}: Not a nice guy by any stretch.
* KidsAreCruel: Even when he isn't picking on his brother, he can be quite insensitive.
* LaserGuidedKarma: He gets what comes to him usually.
* TooDumbToLive: Some of the characters he's attempted to hassle include Flarg and Bushroot. It doesn't end well for him.
* TrashTalk: He frequently insults the people he messes with.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: His father implies in "You Sweat Your Life" that he cut off his grandfather's leg with a chainsaw when he was a baby.

!!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.

->'''Voiced by:''' Jim Cummings

-> 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=].).
* AbusiveParents: 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".
* AndIMustScream: The non-canon ''Dangerous Currency'' story ends with this as his fate.
* ArchEnemy: To Darkwing Duck.
* 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.
* 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. In a later episode, he organizes an escape plan to bust his buddies out of prison, then backstabs them by draining them all of their powers.
* 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.
* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' remind Negaduck that he's only the #2 villain in St. Canard, behind Dr. Slug.
* BigBadDuumvirate: He and Magica [=DeSpell=] serve as the main antagonists of "Crisis on Infinite Darkwings".
* BigOlEyebrows: When compared with Darkwing. Only visible when he's posing as Drake Mallard.
* BlobMonster: [[spoiler: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.
* BrightIsNotGood: His colour scheme (mostly yellow and red) is noticeably brighter than Darkwing's purple suit and dark hat, but he is one evil guy.
* CardCarryingVillain: Openly refers to himself as evil, sinister, all sorts of unpleasant adjectives.
* 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}}: A trait he shares with Darkwing Duck.
* 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: A creepy one at that.
* EvilOverlord: In [[MirrorUniverse his own world]] and he's not satisfied with it.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Has Darkwing's voice, only deeper and more menacing.
* EvilTwin: Of Darkwing, [[CaptainObvious in case you didn't notice]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: Whenever he acts "nice" to the heroes, he's just about to do something ''very'' bad to them.
* 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.
* HumiliationConga: "Just Us, Justice Ducks" part 2.
* {{Hypocrite}}: In "Jail Bird", [=NegaDuck=] steals the Fearsome Five's powers. [[EnemyMine The rest of the Fearsome Five then team-up with Darkwing Duck]] to beat [=NegaDuck=] and he accused his comrades of being "traitors" and "villains".
* 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: He doesn't have any sympathy even towards his fellow villains.
* 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 though.
* MultipleChoicePast: Much like Darkwing himself, there have been multiple Negaducks, each with a distinct origin.
** EnemyWithout: "Negaduck".
** MirrorUniverse: "Life, the Negaverse, and Everything". This is the "true" origin.
** 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]]".
* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: [=NegaDuck=] has all sort of weapons, explosives and many vehicles ranging from a motorcycle, a monster truck, two different helicopters, an airplane, a boat, all tailored to his personal tastes. Since he's the evil ruler of the Negaverse, this is probably where he get all his toys.
* 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: Like his good counterpart, his name scheme fits the pattern.
* TheSociopath: He enjoys causing destruction and never considers the consequences of his violent actions.
* SurroundedByIdiots: As seen in "Life, the Negaverse, and Everything", he has absolutely no interest in being around his four minions beyond completing a job.
* TortureTechnician: And he thoroughly enjoys it, too.
--> "The science of pain! Oooh! Gives me ''chills!''"
* ToThePain: "When I throw...THE SWITCH!"
* UniquenessValue: [[spoiler:The comic continuation reveals that at least part of [=NegaDuck=]'s hatred and villainy stems from frustration at not being the unique and complete individual he feels he should be in a multiverse filled with Darkwings.]]
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Starred in at least two comics in the ''Disney Adventures'' magazine, and yes, he fit this trope to a "T".

[[folder:Megavolt/Elmo Sputterspark]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DanCastellaneta

-> Unintentionally obtaining electrical powers (and maybe frying some brain-cells in the process) from his experiment caused by some high school bullies, he now is a crook who wants to "liberate" the appliances and electrical items of St. Canard.
* AffablyEvil: Despite being a criminal, he's usually a pretty nice guy to his partners.
* ArchEnemy: Before Negaduck came along. Even after, he still has the most appearances. He's even honored that Darkwing considers him this.
* AnimateInanimateObject: Has done Type 3 a couple times, most notably in "A Revolution in Home Appliances".
* AxCrazy: He does not challenge Negaduck in any way of course but he "does" have moments of being violently unhinged and attacking people with electricity for little reason.
* 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.
* CivilianVillain: At the start of the 2010 comic series, we find that Elmo has given up a life of crime (thanks to the Crimebots) and shares a cubicle at Quackwerks with [[spoiler:Drake Mallard]].
* CompanionCube: All electrical devices, seen with a light bulb the most.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: He's clearly a very intelligent scientist, but apart from bringing appliances to life, all he seems interested in is stealing things.
* DitzyGenius: He is able to invent amazing devices and also found out Darkwing Duck's secret identity "Clash Reunion", but he ended up forgetting it because his damaged brain was giving him memory problems by then and he even forgot his own identity a couple times.
* TheDragon: Takes this role whenever he is part of the Fearsome Five.
* EnemyMine: He teams up with Darkwing to defeat greater villains more than once.
* EvilLaugh: Like a lot of villains, he laughs fiendishly when things are in his favor.
* 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.
* FriendlyEnemy: Occasionally, especially in EnemyMine situations.
* IdeaBulb: Literally. He will often hold a light bulb over his head.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain.
** NotSoHarmlessVillain: It's been stated that they've tried and failed to give him the chair, implying that he's committed murder at some point.
* LargeHam: He practically screams every line he utters.
* MadScientist: He admits to the mad part.
* PsychoElectro: It's implied that the massive shock to his system that granted him his powers also caused tremendous damage to his brain. Megavolt has electricity-based powers and is more than a little mentally unbalanced, finding electrical appliances much more agreeable companions than carbon-based life forms (although he has bestowed a certain level of sentience onto said appliances). As he himself says, "[[TheyCalledMeMad They called me crazy! They called me insane! They called me LOONY!... and boy, were they right!]]"
* PsychopathicManchild: He has a tendency to throw childish tantrums and can get very distracted and involved into immature arguments. He is more like a misguided child than a campy supervillain much of the time.

* ShockAndAwe: His main shtick. He even carries a battery on his back.
* SuperMode: Gains one in the comics thanks to the evil ink.
* {{Technopath}}: Subverted, he can bring technology to life but not control it.
* TheyCalledMeMad: "They called me crazy! They called me insane! They called me looney! And, boy, were they right."
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Quackerjack who he's teamed up with twice outside of the group.
* VillainyDiscretionShot: While a comedic villain, he's been to the electric chair twice.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: So what if appliances aren't actually sentient, ''he'' thinks he's saving them from slavery.
* WorthyOpponent: As a result of being Darkwing's ArchEnemy, Darkwing has a healthy respect for him. Despite this he still mocks him when they battle.
* WouldHurtAChild: He has no problem with attempting to kill Gosalyn along with the rest of her family.

[[folder:Dr. Reginald Bushroot]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Tino Insana

-> 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.
* AffablyEvil: He's almost not evil, but he's willing to kill Darkwing Duck when he tries to screw up his plans to find/make a mate.
* AntiVillain: If not for his obsessiveness and lack of impulse control might actually be an AntiHero.
* BenevolentBoss: He's genuinely horrified whenever his plant mooks are cut down to size by Darkwing.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He was actually a really nice guy before his mutation. Even after the transformation, he's gentle and caring with his plants...but he ''has'' committed murder and after Negaduck, he's the most capable member of the Fearsome Five of being actively malicious.
* DrivenToMurder: The very first thing he does with his newfound powers is kill two of his tormentors.
* EvilGenius: He was a botanist before his mutation and often breeds plant monsters to assist with his schemes.
* EnemyMine: Teams up with Darkwing more than once.
* {{Expy}}: Of [=DC=] Comics' Floronic Man. Aside from both being mutant plant beings, the Floronic Man's real name is Jason Woodrue, which like Reginald Bushroot, has a surname composed of two plant-related words.
* FromASingleCell: Bushroot can regenerate a new body over time, as he has been mowed down at least twice.
* GreenThumb: In addition to being a plant himself, he's able to control other plantlife or even grant them a degree of sentience and autonomy.
* TheGrinch: In the ChristmasEpisode, obviously, though unlike most Grinches, he has a good reason for it - he has a really hard time doing his Christmas shopping.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: As impressive as his powers are, he's really not that powerful a villain, mainly due to his own insecurities and relatively gentle nature.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: He was in love with Dr. Rhoda Dendron before his transformation and partly turned to a life of crime when she refused to return his feelings.
* MadScientist: When his funding was pulled, he used himself in his experiments.
* ManEatingPlant: His assistant, Spike, a Venus Fly Trap.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From a duck to a plant hybrid.
* PlantHair: Bushroot has foilage instead of hair.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: His plant powers came as a side effect of being forced to perform an experiment on himself.
* VillainyDiscretionShot: He may have "done away with" two of his tormentors Dr. Gary and Dr. Larson.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: His environmental concerns have a certain validity.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: His villainy comes from his being persecuted by others, both before and after the fateful experiment.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MichaelBell

-> 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.
* AxCrazy: His power is pretty much his craziness and he comes across as second after Negaduck.
* BadassNormal: Unlike Megavolt, Bushroot, and Liquidator, he has no superpowers.
* 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.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his goofy nature, he's one of Darkwing's most dangerous enemies.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: His eccentricity makes him stand out among the other members of the Fearsome Five.
* CatchPhrase: "It's Playtime!"
* CompanionCube: Mr. Banana Brain, a puppet whom he treats as his best friend.
* DeadpanSnarker: Surprisingly given how wacky he is, but he can churn out the sarcasm when he wants to. Often comes up with Megavolt.
-->'''Stegmutt:''' ''[gasp!]'' [[CaptainObvious You're a villain!]]
-->'''Quackerjack:''' ''[fake gasp!]'' You're a ''genius!''
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:In the comics, he uses a device to turn himself into an inanimate toy because he says that he would be happier that way.]]
** Surprisingly he demonstrated his mental and emotional instability by attempting this earlier in the series when his underground kingdom was destroyed and was ready to go down with it. This is one disturbed and sad clown.
* EnemyMine: Teams up with Darkwing more than once.
* EvilPuppeteer: He carries a puppet called Mr. Banana Brain around, and often has conversations with himself through it.
* {{Expy}}:
** Of Creator/DCComics villains SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Toyman. Like the former, he's a clown-themed villain who constantly grins and is completely insane. Like the latter, he uses weaponized toys in his crimes and was originally a legitimate toymaker before he was shut down because his toys were too dangerous.
** His interaction with Mr. Banana Brain can be compared to The Ventriloquist and Scarface from Batman, except Quackerjack sees Mr. Banana Brain as his closest friend rather than a cantankerous jerk who intimidates him and bosses him around.
* EvilLaugh: Almost to the point of LaughingMad.
* GadgeteerGenius: Many of his more complicated toys are his own invention, and he even built his own time machine.
* HappyFunBall: All his non-living toys except for Mr. Banana Brain.
* {{Idiosyncrazy}}: Toy-themed villainy.
* LargeHam: Of the full-blown lunatic flavor.
* LivingToys: Obviously the evil example.
* TheMadHatter: He is completely insane, but does not seem to care.
* MonsterClown: Well, monster court jester anyway.
* MyLittlePanzer: His modus operandi.
* NewMediaAreEvil: He ''hates'' video games, and considers them inferior to traditional toys, to the point where expressing fondness for them in his presence [[BerserkButton really ticks him off]]. He blames video games for he bankruptcy of his toy company and for him becoming evil.
* PsychopathicManchild: To compliment his tendency of using weaponized toys in his crimes, he tends to act like a child and occasionally throws tantrums.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Megavolt whom he's teamed up with twice outside of the group.
* TookALevelInBadass: In the comics.
* ToothyBird: Most bird characters have teeth in the show, but he shows them almost all the time. Plus, they're fake teeth to boot.
* VillainousHarlequin
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: His "wackiness". Negaduck is not too pleased to steal it in "Jail Bird".
* WickedToymaker: He creates lethal toys that look like normal ones, but he's infamous for his gigantic sized joke teeth.

[[folder:The Liquidator/Bud Flood]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Jack Angel

-> 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.
* 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: He's the member of the Fearsome Five most likely to engage in physical attacks.
* CoolClearWater: What he advertised his water was.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: If ''contaminating your competitors' water supplies'' isn't corrupt, then what is?
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Darkwing wound up unintentionally being the reason Bud Flood became Liquidator.
* 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.
* ElementalShapeshifter: His most dangerous power is that his watery body makes him nearly immortal and impossible to detain without specialized equipment.
* 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: Control over water, and is made of it himself.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From a dog to an elemental embodiment of water.
* OnlySaneMan: Out of all the Fearsome Five, he's probably the most level headed member, company slogans notwithstanding.
* 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. Lampshaded when Negaduck temporarily gained Liquidator's powers and escaped from an island prison by using hydrokinesis to part the sea - Liquidator wonders why he never thought of doing that.
* 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.
* UnexplainedRecovery: No explanation on how he escaped from the concrete statue that Darkwing turned him into after hitting him with a bag of cement.
* 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.


The Fiendish Organization for World Larceny or F.O.W.L. is a [[NebulousEvilOrganisation criminal organization]] whose goal is to TakeOverTheWorld.

[[folder:F.O.W.L. High Command]]

* DirtyCoward: When the going gets tough, Steelbeak gets going... out of there.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Generally up for some mock-polite conversation.

The primary antagonists of the two-part pilot movie, "Darkly Dawns the Duck". Most of them don't return afterwards.

[[folder:Taurus Bulba]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TimCurry

-> Probably Darkwing's most dangerous villain. A crime lord who had Gosalyn's paternal grandfather killed for his invention, the Ramrod, an anti-gravity gun he used to steal from the citizens of St. Canard.

* ElectronicEyes: After F.O.W.L. rebuilt him, one of his eye is replaced with a cybernetic one.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Once becoming a cyborg.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Being voiced by Tim Curry, so he naturally brings the same air of sophistication, even though he's heartless and has no respect for anyone underneath that.
* GeniusBruiser: The smartest villain of the series.
* HollywoodCyborg: After he's brought back to life.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Seems to be the case as of ''ComicBook/DarkwingDuck'' #4, in which he uploads his mind to a machine that is "shut down" in the end.]]

* MinionMaracas: Loves doing this to Hammerhead.

* TopHeavyGuy: One of the biggest in the series. He has a ''massive'' upper body with huge horns, a thick neck, very, very broad shoulders and a beefy (no pun intended) torso... which then tapers down into a tiny waist with little legs and feet so small they barely look like limbs. Even when he got turned into a cyborg, this build was retained (he even arguably became ''more'' top-heavy, due to the addition of all of the clunky metal bits and the guns on his horns).
* WeCanRebuildHim: By F.O.W.L., who resurrect him as a cyborg. He immediately turns on them afterwards.
* WeWillMeetAgain: "I will be back!" Too bad he never was... [[spoiler:At least not until the 2010 comic series.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: He's perfectly willing to have Gosalyn dropped down a hundred foot skyscraper to get what he wants out of Darkwing. This is NOT PlayedForLaughs.

* KilledOffForReal: She melts after she is exposed to turpentine and never appeared again.

He appears in the episodes "Can't Bayou Love" and "[[Recap/DarkwingDuckS1E20DoubleDarkwings Double Darkwings]]".
* BaldOfEvil: He has no hair on his head and has no scruples against stealing from or threatening other people.
* BeardOfEvil: He has a full beard and is an unashamed crook.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "I guarantee". Pronounced "gir-Awn-TEE"
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Not the brightest of Darkwing's foes, but once managed to brainwash Launchpad into turning on him.
* DeepSouth: Jake embodies most of the stereotypes. Loud, rude, unhygenic, wears broken overalls, lives in a shack...
* FunetikAksent: Talks this way to go with his Cajun image.
* HollywoodVoodoo: With a spell from Granny Whammy.

* TheNapoleon: Short on stature, but big in plans.

* BattleButler: He is basically Jake's manservant and aids him in battle.
* HypercompetentSidekick: He can cook, clean and stand on two legs, that's pretty good for an alligator. He also knows better on when to pay Granny Whammy her money.
* NonHumanSidekick: While Jambalaya isn't exactly human himself, Gumbo is much less anthropomorphized.
* ServileSnarker: Makes a point to show that he does not think highly of Jake's incompetence.
* TheUnintelligible: He does not say any real words.

->'''Voiced by:''' Marty Ingels

-> Lucifer. Satan. Basically, the devil. Darkwing encountered him in the episode ''Dead Duck'' (Where Darking winds up [[spoiler:dreaming he's]] in Hell), and again as the villain of ''Hot Spells''. In both episodes, he wants to claim Darkwing's soul, though only takes an actively villainous role in the latter.
* AlmightyJanitor: Disguises himself as one to trick Gosalyn into using a cursed spell.
* TheDevilIsALoser: Is portrayed as being rather whiny and easily frustrated in Dead Duck, and gets a rather humiliating defeat in Hot Spells.

!!Minor Villains

Villains who have only appeared once.

[[folder:[=NegaDuck=] I]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Jim Cummings

-> When Darkwing was accidentally zapped by Megavolt's tron splitter, he was separated into purely good and purely evil halves. The evil half was unreasonably nasty and enjoyed violence. However, after being galvanized via another zap from the tron splitter, he ended up becoming supercharged into a nearly-unstoppable force. Was remerged with [=PosiDuck=] back into the regular Darkwing.
!!![=NegaDuck=] I pre-galvanization:
* BadassNormal: Much like Darkwing, he doesn't have any powers... yet.
* BigOlEyebrows: The way the viewer could tell him from the other Darkwing was his thick black angry eyebrows.
* JerkAss: Ruined a movie by walking on the other viewers (literally), slurping his soda, and then getting angry that the movie wasn't violent enough and deciding to correct that by jumping into the movie and commandeering a tank.
* LiteralSplitPersonality: Darkwing's evil half.
* MadeOfEvil: He is the personification of all that is evil within Darkwing.
* TriggerHappy: One must wonder where he gets all these guns.

!!![=NegaDuck=] I post-galvanization, plus most of the above:
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: His sclera turn black.
* CastingAShadow: Kinda. His negative energy manifests itself as evil-looking lightning and energy balls.
* DarkIsEvil: He appears as a black-and-white photographic negative of Darkwing.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: Not just black-and-white, but also shading-inverted. The only colored parts are his glowing red eyes.
* ForTheEvulz[=/=]EvilerThanThou: In his own words (post-galvanization): "Crime!? Who cares about crime?! I'm into ''wanton, mindless destruction''!"
* HumanoidAbomination: Well, as humanoid as one can be in a world of funny animals anyway. He has unbelievably destructive power.
* OmnicidalManiac: He wants to destroy ''everything''.
* PowerGlows: He was surrounded by a grey-white static aura.
* RealityWarper: He seems to be capable of causing destruction. Not just with energy blasts, but literally causing spontaneous disarray just by existing.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: He was monochrome except for dark red pupils in his eyes.
* SuperMode: As with his positive counterpart, galvanization significantly boosted his abilities.
* WalkingWasteland: His presence alone causes streetlights to burst, fences to fall apart, glass to shatter, and pavement to crack. And then there's what happens when he goes after ''specific'' targets...

[[folder:Dark Warrior Duck/Drake Mallard]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Jim Cummings

-> Drake's dictator-like persona if Gosalyn had disappeared when Quackerjack and Megavolt went into the future in "Time & Punishment". He rules St. Canard with an iron fist, gives the citizens few liberties, and arrests them on the spot for even the most trivial crimes. Voiced by Creator/JimCummings.
* AllCrimesAreEqual: And all punished with death. Or at least a life sentence.
* AntiHeroSubstitute: A parody of the concept. He's Darkwing Duck with a far more extreme attitude towards fighting crime.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: All three will get you a life sentence in prison or worse because he thinks AllCrimesAreEqual.
* BadassNormal: As Darkwing previously was.
* BoringButPractical: He beats Megavolt with a ''fire hose''.

* TheDreaded: The citizens of St. Canard are more afraid of him than of actual criminals.
* EvilCounterpart: From a BadFuture, showing what Darkwing himself would be like as a KnightTemplar.
* {{Expy}}: Essentially a TakeThat to ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''.
* FutureBadass: As evil as he is, you have to admit he's scarily more competent than the present Darkwing.
* GadgeteerGenius: Packing a set that are far more lethal and destructive than the modern Darkwing Duck's.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: His criminal-hunting has made him the worst criminal St. Canard has ever faced.
* {{Jerkass}}: His extremist views lead to him being unrelenting to everyone who breaks his rules, even when they are innocent people.
* KnightOfCerebus: While he has some moments of comedy, he's played seriously like 90% of the episode he's appearing in. He kinda shares this with Quiverwing Quack in the ''War of the Darkwings'' arc in the comics. They both lost Gosalyn and changed their methodology as a result--though they went in opposite directions. 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. It turned out he meant [[spoiler:Morgana]], not [[spoiler:Gosalyn]].
* KnightTemplar: He goes ''way'' too far in the name of punishing crimes.
* LargeHam: A far more menacing ham than before, but still hammy.

-> A evil clown-like aberration who feeds on misery. Likes Gosalyn and Quackerjack for their prank playing.
* DemonicPossession: First of Mr. Banana Brain, then [[spoiler:St. Canard Bay, and then Negaduck in the comics]].
* EmotionEater: He grew stronger on other people's embarrassment and misery.
* EvilLaugh: A hollow, echo-y sort of evil laugh.
* EvilMentor: Wanted to become this to Gosalyn, one of the few things we see scare her.
* FangsAreEvil: Had a pair of vampire-like fangs.
* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler:Returned in the ''Crisis on Infinite Darkwings'' arc, having been stuck in St. Canard's water and slowly making his way back to full power.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: While still comedic, RuleOfScary puts him above the usual villains as far as threats posed.
* PerversePuppet: When possessing Mr. Banana Brain.
* PostModernMagic: What's scarier than an ancient clown-like demon? [[spoiler:An ancient clown-like demon wielding the Tron Splitter.]]
* ThePowerOfLove: [[spoiler:The mutual love all the alternate Darkwings had for Gosalyn was used to defeat Paddywhack.]]
* SealedEvilInACan: At first. He was dormant while living in a cursed jack-in-the-box and was awakened by a prank that Goslyn pulled.
* VillainousHarlequin: He wore a black and white harlequin suit complete with a ruff.

[[folder:Phineas Sharpe]]

->An arch-enemy of Derek Blunt. He came into possession of a list of SHUSH agents and began murdering them to draw Blunt out of retirement for revenge. Darkwing was asked to support Blunt by J. Gander Hoover.
* LaughingMad: He was more restrained than some villains, but he spent a lot of time cackling and he was ''very'' obsessed over gaining revenge on Derek Blunt.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Owned a palatial island estate and dressed in a very fine suit.
* NonActionGuy: Phineas did pull out a ray gun to use on two unarmed opponents, but he was an intellectual villain who preferred to hire muscle and keep his own hands clean. This came back to bite him when his auction for the list of agents didn't go as planned and he had no plans on what to do about an audience full of angry, violent villains.
* ToothyBird: ''Sharp'' toothed bird, no less.
* VillainBall: As a parody of James Bond villains, Phineas has Darkwing and Derek Blunt captured and creates a ridiculously elaborate death trap instead of killing them.

[[folder:The King & Lamont]]
->The King '''Voiced by:''' Patrick Pinney
->Lamont '''Voiced by:''' Candi Milo

-> The King is a two bit thug, who would have taken over St. Canard in the present day if Darkwing Duck didn't intervene in the past. Lamont is his little brother who picked on Drake when they were kids.

[[folder:The Bugmaster/Bianca Beakley]]
->'''Voiced by:''' April Winchell

-> A famous news reporter who wanted higher ratings, so she created her criminal persona "The Bugmaster" to create her own personal crime wave so she could reap the rewards of having the highest rated news show in St. Canard, covering her battles with Darkwing. She learned rather quickly that EvilPaysBetter and decided to become a true criminal.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: to Darkwing.
--> '''Darkwing:''' Ugh! Why do the weird ones always fall for me?
* {{Acrofatic}}: She's overweight, but very formidable in combat.
* ExtremeOmnivore: In her desperation to get warm, she eats hot charcoal briquettes.
* FatBitch: She is overweight and finds her need to be warm more important than the lives of others.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Averted. She's AnIcePerson who ''doesn't'' have immunity to cold, and she hates the cold.

* VainSorceress: This is what led to her StartOfDarkness.

[[folder:Ordinary Guy]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Rob Palillo

-> From Comet Guy's planet, Mertz. Has something of a grudge...not only is he the only guy on Mertz with no powers, but the heroes protected him and coddled him so much that he turned evil.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Like all inhabitants of Mertz, he has the distinction of resembling a human being instead of an anthropomorphic animal.
* BadassNormal: the only guy without superpowers.
* CastAsAMask: He's initially voiced by Jim Cummings, until he throws his disguise away.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: When he found out his ray gun could work in reverse.

[[folder:Cement Head]]

* LatexPerfection: His disguise as Swenlin Swine has him wear a realistic mask of an ordinary pig.
* LivingStatue: Pretty much unavoidable since he is made of cement.
* MadeOfIron: Or cement.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His father Marlon Hambone is an obvious parody of Creator/MarlonBrando.
* SuperStrength: Comes with the territory of being cement.

[[folder:Dr. Fossil]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Barry Gordon

* DeadpanSnarker: One of the snarkiest villains to appear in the show, despite barely appearing.
* DevolutionDevice: He uses one of these to turn every duck in St. Canard into dinosaurs.

* GoodWingsEvilWings: Being a pterosaur, he has evil bat-like wings.

* HomemadeInventions: Lilliputt with his ant communication helmet and shrink ray.

-> A demon of unfathomable power whose mere presence drives people into insanity and mutates them into horrid monstrosities. Introduced in the 2010 comic series, F.O.W.L. High Command intended to awaken him and use him for world domination. Needless to say, EvilIsNotAToy.

* EvilIsNotAToy: F.O.W.L. quickly learned that Duckthulhu could not be controlled as they'd hoped.

* LovecraftLite: While dark by the story's standards, it's sorta hard to take seriously compared to the original Cthulhu. Especially with that duck bill.
* SkewedPriorities: When Morgana makes him disintegrate in the arc's revision for the Joe Books omnibus collection of the comic, his biggest concern about his hand disappearing is that he won't be able to fist bump.
* TakenForGranite: Starts off as a statue.

-> A villain who only appeared in a story from the Boom comic's annual issue.
* TimeTravel: Comes with the territory of being a time-themed villain.

-> An eccentric monkey baseball player named Carmichael Q. Anthony who became a supervillain after he was given a coat that could make different items for him to throw appear out of thin air.
* {{Hammerspace}}: His coat enables him to pull anything out of thin air.

* LoveMakesYouEvil: In the original version, his StartOfDarkness was having a crush on Gosalyn and never understanding that Gosalyn isn't interested.
* PunnyName: His supervillain name is a play on "cat", "tank", and "cantankerous".

-> Real name Constance A. Dention, she was a third candidate in the election for mayor that Darkwing and Launchpad were competing in, but was disqualified after she turned out to be a villain.
* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Darkwing in The Definitively Dangerous Edition and in Orange Is the New Purple

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: While he seldom appears outside the comics, the Phantom Blot is usually an enemy of Mickey Mouse. He lampshades this in "Dangerous Currency" when he initially refuses to help Magica with her plan because he has enemies of his own.
* SequelHook: He first appears in "Campaign Carnage", where the story ends with the revelation that he was the reason One-Shot, Cat-Tankerous, and Suff-Rage got their powers and also formed an alliance with Magica [=DeSpell=]. Even though this originally led to the now non-canon ''ComicBook/DuckTales'' crossover "Dangerous Currency", the Joe Books collection's revision of "Campaign Carnage" still features the Phantom Blot, his involvement in the story, and teaming up with Magica for a new scheme, suggesting that the new series plans to go a different direction for their team-up.
