    Flintheart Glomgold 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/glomgold_3.jpg
"He thinks he's so rich, and so Scottish. Well I'm wearing a kilt, McDuck! A KILT!"
Voiced By: Keith Ferguson

The Second Richest Duck in the World, and major business rival to Scrooge McDuck.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Not that Glomgold wasn't a villain in the original cartoon, but this incarnation is much more willing to resort to violent measures, including murder, in his efforts to best Scrooge. This characterization is in line with how he was from the comics though, where he often was The Unfettered in contrast to Scrooge's Fettered and generally the evilest of the regular villains.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Zig-zagged. While he is more vicious and willing to resort to killing than in the original cartoon, he's not nearly as capable of pulling off his plans, relying on over-complicated schemes to achieve these goals. Scrooge himself barely seems to see him as any kind of threat at all.
  • Always Someone Better: Seems to be a major part of his motivation in hating Scrooge.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Scrooge. Well one of them — poor Donald can't keep track.
  • Bad Boss: He compliments the mercenaries he'd hired to help him get the Jewel of Atlantis for distracting Scrooge long enough for him to get a safe distance away to blow up Atlantis and kill his enemies, while they're still in the city. When one of the objects, he tells them that he doesn't care, because he got what he wanted.
  • Beard of Evil: As usual, he sports a big grey beard. It's actually fake.
  • Big Bad: As usual, he constantly antagonizes Scrooge, making it his sole aim to run him down and kill him. More specifically, he's the primary antagonist of the pilot episode, with his plan to get to Atlantis and get the jewel before Scrooge driving the plot.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He is shown to be incompetent in some of his planning, as shown in episodes like "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!" and "McMystery at McDuck McManor!".
  • Blatant Lies: As Scottish billionaire ducks go, it's hard to picture a duck that is so transparently a Card-Carrying Villain as the world's most beloved.
  • Boring, but Practical: One of the ways he made his fortune, according to Matt Youngberg, was through branding and putting his face on everything he could.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: His Employee Training video transparently encourages lying, cheating, and stealing, and Glomgold himself eagerly jumps at the idea of murdering and/or torturing Scrooge and his family. He outright calls himself evil in "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!"
  • Characterization Marches On: While still somewhat ineffectual and reliant on others, he's portrayed as much more straightforward in the pilot than as the overly convoluted planner in the series proper.
  • Complexity Addiction: His plan to kill Mark Beaks (which also involved a separate plan to backstab Scrooge) involved a billionaire's party on a yacht, a swimming pool full of sharks, a fake holiday involving carrots and an active volcano.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: In contrast to Scrooge, who prides himself on making his fortune square, Glomgold has no such qualms or morals when it comes to making a profit, be it stealing other persons ideas, or outright attempted murder.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: He shares a fairly identical build with Scrooge in other incarnations, which this series trades out for a shorter, stout one, to give him a more distinct look.
  • Egopolis: Seems to be striving for this, at least if the advertised products in the abandoned subway car in "Terror of the Terra-Fermians!'' are any indication. They are for Glomgold Meats, Glomgold Water and Glom Illustrated (tagline: "Entertainment for the Glomgold Enthusiast").
  • Enemy Mine: Played with in "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks". Both Scrooge McDuck and Glomgold hate each other, but hate Mark Beaks more, so Glomgold formulates a hilariously drawn plan to get rid of him, plus a You Have Outlived Your Usefulness to Scrooge McDuck (the plan never goes through... on screen at least).
  • Epic Fail: In "The Missing Links of Moorshire", he flips a Two-Headed Coin in order to go first in golf. He ends up calling for tails. And to top it off, he fails at tossing it into the ocean in anger.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His Employee Training video transparently encourages lying, cheating, and stealing, giving a good idea on exactly what type of person he is.
    • And if that's not enough to drive the point home, his lines immediately afterwards cement it.
    "You're here because you're the best of the cheapest."
    "With your help and my carefully crafted master plan, we'll find the fabled lost Jewel of Atlantis and finally make me the richest duck in the world!"
    "But first, here are your company IDs, also good for 40% off life vest rental in case of emergency."
  • Evil Counterpart: To Scrooge, as always for the character, being a Corrupt Corporate Executive with a hands-off approach as opposed to Scrooge's Honest Corporate Executive with a fairly hands-on one. He's also willing to kill his employees if it'd get him to his goals, whereas Scrooge is willing to defend even his most dangerous.
  • Evil Is Hammy: He's a large man with a larger presence that shouts a lot, usually at an absent Scrooge. He insists he's the world's most beloved Scottish billionaire duck and there's an effigy of him above his office door that's much more muscular than his actual rotund physique.
  • Evil Knockoff: He's based much of his identity off of copying Scrooge in an attempt to usurp him as richest Duck in the world.
  • Fat Bastard: Glomgold's new design widens his girth by at least three times compared to his classic look.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Glomgold seems to value his employees at first, but quickly reveals that he's not afraid to resort to murder, and abandons his henchmen as soon as he thinks he has what he wants.
  • Foil: To Scrooge, as always. He's also a billionaire duck with a Scottish accent, but Scrooge earned his wealth "fair and square", whereas Glomgold earned his by cheating and stealing. Also tends to let his penchant for complex plans to overrun his judgement and motivations, while Scrooge would prefer the smartest, simplest way of doing things.
  • Friendly Enemy: Okay "friendly" is too strong a word, but Glomgold and Scrooge's relationship is more than a simple rivalry. Do they hate each other's guts? Sure. Does that stop them from having a daily staring contest at the Duckburg's Billionaire club (of which they're the only members; they literally share a room split down the middle)? Nope.
  • Harmless Villain: What he essentially becomes after "Woo-Hoo!". At best he's nothing but a nuisance since his Complexity Addiction works against him. Scrooge flat-out tells him that he regards Glomgold's countless attempts to kill him more annoying than anything else. Special mention goes to the montage in "Mc Mystery at Mc Duck Mc Manor!", where Glomgold tries to make booby-trapped presents to kill Scrooge; he achieves an Epic Fail with all of them and nearly kills himself instead.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: For all his posturing, everything about him screams "over-compensating due to insecurity about Scrooge being Always Someone Better", even insisting he's more Scottish than Scrooge.
  • In-Series Nickname: Scrooge calls him "Flinty".
  • It's All About Me: He is willing to dispose of his employees as he pleases in a never-ending quest to one-up Scrooge and pilfer treasure-filled dungeons.
  • Large Ham: Most of his dialogue is him raising his voice. This is especially prominent in his employee training video.
  • Laughably Evil: He's a horrible person but he's so honest and hammy about it you can't help but laugh.
    "With your help and my carefully crafted master plan, we'll find the fabled lost Jewel of Atlantis, and finally make me the richest duck in the world! *evil laugh* But first, here are your company IDs, also good for 40% off life vest rental in case of emergency."
    "Get the sharks ready." *evil laugh*
  • Man in a Kilt: He claims that it makes him more Scottish than Scrooge.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Flintheart" - Flint is a kind of stone, so to have a flint heart is to have a stony heart, i.e. uncaring and cruel. Flint is also a play on "skinflint," another word for a cheapskate.
    • "Glomgold" - The word "glom" (derived from the Scottish English "glaum") means "to steal, to grab", which would make him a gold-grabbing thief. Of course, as the first episode shows, any treasure will do for him - or even ideas, based on the "take an idea, make it your own" statement from the training video.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Not only does he routinely plot to try and kill Scrooge, but most of his plans involve trying to murder any opposition he faces, as Scrooge discovers when the two attempt to team up to get Mark Beaks kicked out of their Billionaires club.
  • Narcissist: Any drawn pictures of him tend to feature him as tall and muscular, freely showing off his egotistical opinion of himself.
  • Never My Fault: He swears vengeance on Scrooge when the "super cursed" ruby he stole from Atlantis causes an octopus to attack him. This is in spite of the fact that Glomgold took the ruby because he fully believed it to be the Jewel of Atlantis, a belief Scrooge had nothing to do with at all.
  • Nice Hat: A very, very Scottish tam o' shanter.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Beneath his bombastic personality, shallow charm and transparently desperate attempts to one-up Scrooge; Glomgold hides a surprisingly cunning mind and a disregard for anyone other than himself. Following coming across as comedic, somewhat affable, and out of his depth compared to Scrooge throughout his first appearance he casually pulls a gambit that even Scrooge is forced to admit is brilliant planning, and nearly manages to murder Scrooge, Launchpad, Donald, the children and his own henchmen in one fowl swoop.
    • A bit of a mitigation though when it turns out the above plan was one of his few "good" ones. More often his evil schemes amount to little more than an annoyance, at least in Scrooge's eyes.
  • Overly Narrow Superlative: He is, as he himself boasts, the world's most beloved Scottish billionaire duck. (Only true because Scrooge is a trillionaire.)
  • Pet the Dog: While the only reason he hired Donald was to get back at Scrooge, he thinks Donald does a good job and even tells him he's a model employee.
    • Despite every single one of his interactions with other characters involve him yelling, threatening or otherwise abusing them, he has nothing but good things to say about Scrooge's late butler Duckworth. He admits missing him and describes him as 'an artist' when it came to throwing parties.
  • Poor Man's Substitute: In-Universe, he's one for Scrooge. This is even lampshaded by Scrooge himself:
    Scrooge: Flintheart Glomgold, the poor man's version of me... which, to be fair, still makes him insanely rich.
  • Pride: His ego is easily dented. In "The Missing Links of Moorshire", he fired the world's best golfer (whom he'd hired as his caddy) for trying to give him some advice, outraged that he was telling him how to golf.
  • The Scrooge: Even more than Scrooge. He makes a point of declaring that he's hired "the best of the cheapest" when it comes to goons. Subverted when it comes to his revenge plans.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Scrooge. While Scrooge is merely thrifty, Glomgold is out and out cheap. While Scrooge is The Fettered, Glomgold is The Unfettered. Glomgold also steals ideas and rebrands them as his own, showing he's not "the smartest of the smarties" like Scrooge but instead merely clever.
  • The Sociopath: While Glomgold comes off initially as an affable and caring businessman to his employees, it becomes clear that he values no one except himself and will resort to anything from trying to kill the Nephews and Webby, to leaving his henchmen to die in Atlantis as it collapses, in order to claim Scrooge's place as the World's Richest Duck.
  • Taken for Granite: He is briefly turned to stone by enchanted mists in "The Missing Links of Moorshire". He is later restored to normal... but only above the waist.
  • Unknown Rival: Played with. Scrooge knows he's a rival, and is even willing to offer him some grudging respect as the "poor man's version of [him]." Donald, however, doesn't know who Glomgold is, even though he was Scrooge's sidekick for years prior to the series; Donald even claims that he can't keep track of all Scrooge's sworn enemies.
  • Villain Decay: In "Woo-oo!" he is a hammy, but competent villain who gets very close to killing Scrooge with his entire family. In his consecutive appearances, his hamminess remains, but his plans keep failing due to his own Complexity Addiction.
  • Villain Respect: He has nothing but good things to say about Scrooge's deceased butler, Duckworth.
  • Violent Glaswegian: He's a very violent person, and he's even more Scottish than Scrooge is (if you ask him anyway)!
  • Worthy Opponent: Telling Donald that he's a model employee is probably the nicest thing he'll ever say to a member of Scrooge's family.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Doesn't bat an eye over ordering his minions to harm Scrooge's entourage (which includes Webby) or leaving them behind to die (including Dark Action Girl Gabby).
  • Would Hurt a Child: Glomgold is perfectly willing to straight up murder the nephews and Webby.
  • You Get What You Pay For: As noted above, the mercenaries he hired were "the best of the cheapest"... which would explain why a bunch of kids and a badly poisoned Launchpad were able to humiliate them so easily.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Despite believing that Donald was an excellent employee, he has no qualms with leaving him to die in a flooding treasure room.
    • He also has no qualms about abandoning Gabby and the Smashnikovs to die when Atlantis is about to explode.
  • You Were Trying Too Hard: In "The Missing Links of Moorshire", his golf game immediately improves after Louie advises him to just hit the ball.

    Magica De Spell 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2017_10_01_1.png
Voiced By: Catherine Tate

A powerful sorceress, and one of Scrooge's long standing adversaries.
  • Abusive Parent: "Jaw$" confirms she's one to Lena not caring about her niece's safety, and it's made abundantly clear that Lena can't walk away because Magica's magic is keeping her imprisoned to do her bidding.
  • Adaptational Badass: Implied by the nature of her introduction. In the original series, she was a Card-Carrying Villain but she relied on parlor tricks and magical artifacts, because her own magical power was feeble (she turned her brother into a raven but could never change him back). But here, she evidently warrants Sealed Evil in a Can status — which is typically reserved for Eldritch Abominations and Physical Gods (and indeed, her Living Shadow form resembles a Humanoid Abomination).
  • Adaptational Nationality: Catherine Tate uses her natural British accent, while the original Carl Barks comics gave her nationality as Italian (Barks based her look on Sophia Loren), and the 1987 version was voiced by June Foray using the same voice and pseudo-Russian accent as Nastasha Fatale.
  • Arch-Enemy: One of many Scrooge has, although she seems to be the most dangerous one.
  • Big Bad: Of Season One. The other villains are mainly nuisances whose evil plans vary week by week. By contrast whatever Magica's plan is it requires more long-term planning. Specifically she's adamant that she get her hand on Scrooge's Number 1 Dime before the next Lunar Eclipse.
  • Composite Character: She's still a sorceress, but her Living Shadow form, complete with red eyes, seems to be based upon the time her shadow became sentient in the 1987 series, and shares roughly the same powerset (being able to influence the shadows of others).
  • Dark Is Evil: An Evil Sorceress who takes the form of a Living Shadow complete with Red Eyes, Take Warning who may very well be the Big Bad? Yeah, she definitely counts.
  • Dark Lord on Life Support: Magica is not yet corporeal, with her present state being identified as a prison for her soul, and Lena promises that she will rise again, i.e. return to a body.
  • Establishing Character Moment: "The Beagle Birthday Massacre" doesn't give much to go off on her character, but in "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!", her first action upon being able to form is to try and kill Mrs. Beakley, for being rightly suspicious of Lena, and then tries to goad Lena into leaving her for dead, giving a good idea on how ruthless she is.
  • Evil Brit: Courtesy of her voice actor. She's vaguely Eastern European in the original show and Italian in the comics, she's British here if her accent is anything to go by, and subtly hinted by her niece Lena.
  • Evil Laugh: She shows it off many times in "Jaw$".
  • Evil Mentor: She wants Lena to do outright vile things like murder, and is disappointed when her niece takes a more pragmatic and peaceful approach to her plan of insinuating herself with Scrooge's family.
  • Evil Sorceress: Just like her incarnation in the original show. Only in this case, she's MUCH more powerful.
  • Family Values Villain: Averted, she doesn't give a damn about Lena but still fully excepts her niece to carry out her plans on the basis of their familial bond and is gobsmacked that Lena would chose Webby and her friends above her.
  • Feuding Families: In "Jaw$" we learn that her family and Clan McDuck have been apparently fighting for centuries.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Magica is established to be the greatest evil in the Ducktales universe, but she is set up to be a major threat in the future.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Implied to be this, considering that she's been sealed away by complex means.
  • If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten: She's rather intent on Lena taking the most ruthless course possible, encouraging her to leave Mrs. Beakley to die during a tunnel cave-in. It's telling that Lena chooses to save her, instead, much to Magica's displeasure.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Her brief appearance in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!" and her scenes in "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!" have been taken very seriously. In "Jaw$!", although she still has her serious moments, she shows her more hammy, comedic side.
  • Large Ham: Oh yea. Catherine Tate's put to good use here.
  • Living Shadow: She takes this form when summoned by Lena.
    • She can also take over her niece's shadow in order to talk to her without being summoned.
  • Logical Weakness: "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!" shows that her Living Shadow form requires light to be cast, and that she can't control the movements of Lena; she doesn't show up until the lights of the train turn on, and Lena simply moving into the darkness stops her from attacking Mrs. Beakley.
  • Magical Incantation: Lena recites a poem to summon her.
    "Summoned spirit from the dark,
    show thyself before this arc.
    Free thy dread soul from its prison,
    Once more shall thee be risen!"
  • Meaningful Name: Has "magic"note  and "spell" in her name, fitting for a sorceress.
  • Not So Above It All: "Jaw$" reveals she can be just as hammy and over-the-top as Glomgold.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her shadowy appearance features her with glowing, evil red eyes.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: She appears to be trapped in her niece's amulet. The poem notes that her "dread soul" is currently trapped in a prison.
  • Slasher Smile: Her reaction to her niece's report of her success.

    Mark Beaks 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dt2017___mark_beaks.jpg
"Project Tah-Dah! It's everything you think it is, and nothing you expect!"
Voiced By: Josh Brener

Another of Scrooge's billionaire rivals, Beaks is the CEO of Wattle, Duckburg's leading tech company. Unlike Scrooge's other rivals, he's not interested in wealth or money, but rather status and reputation. He's an African grey parrot according to one of the co-creators.
  • Actor Allusion: He's a tech billionaire played by Josh Brener, who's most famous for playing Big Head in Silicon Valley, a show about people working in the tech industry. Mark's personality and role particularly makes him resemble that show's antagonist, Gavin Belson, whom Big Head works under for a few seasons.
  • Affably Evil: He's quite pleasant to be around, all things considered, even while committing fraud. Well, unless you're Scrooge or Glomgold.
  • Animal Stereotypes: Parrots are considered as clever, talkative birds who like to be the center of attention.
  • Attention Whore: Unlike Scrooge or Flintheart, he cares much more about status than money. Heck, at the end of his introductory episode it's shown that he cares more about his social media presence than his own life as he jumps off a building after his last backup phone so he can make one last social update before it (and himself) hits the ground. He manages to live thanks to a trampoline, but a fumble and appearance by a disguised Flintheart Glomgold spells the end for his phone.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: He wears a suit with shirt and pants, but no shoes, so that his parrot-toes are visible.
  • Benevolent Boss: He installs trampolines and playground slides at his offices, and throws dance parties during work time, to keep his employees happy and thus increase their productivity. However, sometimes his Mean Boss tendencies slip through, like when his coffee arrives a minute early. Arguably deconstructed, since for all his apparent charm and Nice Guy persona he's actually just as ruthless, exploitative, scheming and self-centred as any corporate robber-baron like Glomgold (who if nothing else is at least honest about what a villain he is, in private at least), and his benevolence tends to come off more as hypocrisy instead.
  • Berserk Button: Things not going according to his plans, even if it's something small as getting his 2:15 coffee a minute early, as Dewey found out.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His eyebrows are noticeably larger than those of the other characters.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Even though Mark Beaks seems to be a chill, relaxed, fun-loving guy most of the time, there are hints at a darker desire beneath that facade. For instance, when Dewey brings him his 2:15 coffee at 2:14, he starts to have a villainous speech, which gets totally ignored when Huey brings him the coffee at the right time.
  • Canon Foreigner: He's a new character created for the series, to provide a look at a "modern" billionaire.
  • Con Man: Project Tah-Dah. It doesn't actually exist. Tah-Dah!
  • Control Freak: For all his apparently laid-back attitude, he's actually one of these. As witnesses when he receives coffee at 2:14 instead of 2:15, at which point he beings ranting about order.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: He makes himself a billionaire by generating hype for a product that doesn't actually exist, then hires someone to steal it, so that he can keep the money they invested.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He carries numerous backups phones on him at all times, so if one gets destroyed, he's not prevented from texting.
  • Didn't Think This Through: While his plan to hire a mercenary to steal a supposedly valuable product that doesn't even exist, so that he can claim it was stolen and keep all the money people invested in it was quite clever, it never occurs to him to let said mercenary in on the deal, instead preferring to play him as a chump then reveal it at the end. He almost gets killed as a result.
  • Disney Villain Death: Subverted. He jumps off a building to save his last backup phone, but is saved by one of the trampolines that are out front.
  • Enemies Equals Greatness: After Mark unveils B.U.D.D.Y. to the public, Launchpad and Gyro immediately hate it.
    Mark: Whoa! Scrooge's driver and his chief inventor are threatened by my B.U.D.D.Y. here. Well, that is how you know it's a good product.
  • Expy: He is likely based of John D. Rockerduck, as both are examples of modern day businessmen (for their times, at least).
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: He presents himself to the world as brilliant inventor and entrepreneur. The truth however in Gyro's words is that's he's a "hack [who] couldn't even program a microwave". He simply steals other people's tech and makes minor cosmetic changes to pass it off as his own.
  • Fatal Flaw: His laziness. He got his fortune by hyping up a product that ultimately didn't exist which almost gets him killed, and when stealing Gyro's plans when creating B.U.D.D.Y., didn't alter the morality circuits and instead was content to make the robot look cooler... Which resulted in B.U.D.D.Y. turning evil.
  • Fearless Fool: Beaks shows no signs of fear when Falcon Graves plows through his security team and holds him up. One might think it is because Graves's presence was part of Beaks's scheme, but Beaks remains oblivious after that, even as Graves plans to throw him off a roof.
  • Foil:
    • To Scrooge - Mark Beaks is clearly not tougher than the toughies, while clever he's neither smarter than the smarties, and he certainly didn't make his money square.
    • To Glomgold - Both have Faux Affably Evil going for them when they want to keep up appearances, but Glomgold is more concerned with oneupmanship and revenge while Mark Beaks is 100% dedicated to appearances. Also, Glomgold is an unapologetic thief while Beaks is a Con Artist.
    • To Huey - Both are big on well-laid plans and checklists, but there's a short-lived hint that Mark Beaks is quite a bit more uptight about deviations from his than even Huey. Plus, Huey makes his plans to help others as well as himself, while Mark's plans only help himself.
    • To Dewey - Take Dewey's love of attention, exaggerate liberally, then subtract redeeming qualities and concern for others and you're 90% of the way towards getting Mark Beaks.
    • To Louie - Even if Louie didn't appear in Mark's debut, it's clear that they both have a similar Laisez-Fair con artist attitude towards earning money, since Mark's entire plan with Project Tah-Dah is the epitome of "Get something for nothing" that Louie has shown to admire in the past. However, Mark is far more self-absorbed than Louie, while Louie is more laid-back and is more comfortable admitting his own faults.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: He has only three toes on each foot, lacking the second backwards-pointing toe on the zygodactyl foot of parrots.
  • The Friend No One Likes: Is this to the rest of the Rogues Gallery. Glomgold thinks he's annoying while Ma Beagle questions how he can be considered a nemesis due to the relatively harmless nature of his schemes.
  • Hammerspace: Subverted. His handy supply of backup phones is not, in fact, infinite. It's actually a pretty realistic number, if impractical for the average person.
  • Harmless Villain: So far, the worst things he's done to the protagonists are firing Huey and Dewey from their jobs at his company to cover up his own fraud and trying to find embarrassing footage of Scrooge to post online so he can humiliate him. Ma Beagle points this out in "McMystery at McDuck Manor!", asking how Scrooge can even consider Beaks a nemesis.
  • Hates Being Touched: His digital high five app is specifically mentioned by him to allow all the congratulations of a high five without actually having to touch someone else.
  • Hipster: He’s a pretty stereotypical depiction of this trope in its “millennial dot-com start-up tech billionaire” form; obsessed with technology and his social media profile, seemingly laid-back and chill about everything (but with a darker, more uptight and hypocritical side), shallow and aloof about everything, likes “irony” (his reaction to Dewey’s briefcase), wears a hoodie...
  • Hypocrite: In the finale of his debut episode, he says that nobody cares what he posts online when Huey and Dewey post an embarrassing peep, after having spent all of the episode annoying and aggravating Falcon Graves by incessantly posting status updates, and complaining about Scrooge and Glomgold's lack of knowledge of social media.
  • Keet: Toyed with- he's extremely personable and enthusiastic about his company and products, but it ultimately only serves to underline how shallow he is.
  • Lack of Empathy: One of his motivational posters in a work area outright tells his employees that they're replaceable, and when he fires Huey and Dewey, he does it in a very apathetic manner, paying more attention to his phone than the duo.
  • Narcissist: Beaks's obsession with his image is partially because it's how he makes all his money from investments, but he also seems to genuinely want constant praise. He hires Huey and Dewey as interns entirely because Huey called him a genius.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He's a pastiche of numerous tech startup heads, most obviously Mark Zuckerberg, with some elements of Steve Jobs thrown in the mix according to Word of God.
  • Nouveau Riche: Mark Beaks made his money in the tech industry and as mentioned cares more about status and being "buzzworthy".
  • Older Hero vs. Younger Villain: He seems fairly younger than Scrooge, and is definitely antagonistic going by his appearance in a villain montage in the opening.
  • Otaku: According to Word of God, he's a fan of magical girl anime.
  • Plausible Deniability. In "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!" Beaks didn't steal from Gyro, Li'l Bulb was on a public forum, and he wouldn't have known it was originally Gyro's invention, so by all counts Mark Beaks is blameless for the incident that followed.
  • The Rival: Has one with Gyro, since he has a habit of pilfering his tech.
  • Schedule Fanatic: The guy throws a fit because Dewey brought him his afternoon coffee one minute early.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: The only other known African grey parrot to appear in a cartoon was Professor Pericles.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He seems to consider himself up there with Scrooge and Glomgold, with the money to back it up, but Scrooge doesn't really consider him much of a threat, and Ma Beagle considers him more of a harmless annoyance instead.
  • The Social Expert: Say whatever else you will about his Get Rich Quick Scheme, because ultimately it works. Not due to him being a genius, but because of how masterfully he manipulates the appearance of the situation to the outside world.
  • Super OCD: Shows some signs of this. He created an app on his phone to give high fives to so he wouldn't have to touch people, is grossed out by having someone's finger prints on his phone, and loses his temper over receiving coffee one minute ahead of schedule.

The Beagle Boys

    As a Group 
Voiced by: Eric Bauza

A family of criminals who are after Scrooge's money.
  • Adaptational Villainy: While still bungling and comical, this version of the Beagle Boys also show a much bigger inclination toward violence than previous ones, including toward children.
  • All In The Manual: A majority of the Beagle Boys who speak don't have their names spoken onscreen. Rather, they're stated in the end credits as can best be attributed.
  • Alliterative Name: The gang is called the Beagle Boys, and all of them have a name that starts with B.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: This is a recurring motif throughout the various Beagle Boy groups; one member will be fairly small, one will be quite skinny, and one will be very burly. There are exceptions though, such as the Longboard Taquitos who all have athletic builds.
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: When the various Beagle Boys groups are introduced at Ma Beagle's birthday party in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre":
    Ma Beagle: My boys! Look around, you can see the future of Duckburg is ours! It warms my heart to see all of you here together as a family: the Original Classics, the Glam Yankees! The Dejà Vus, the Sixth Avenue Meanies, the Sixth Avenue Friendlies, the Longboard Taquitos, the Dejà Vus, the Tumblebums (eeugh!), the Ugly Failures, and the Dejà Vus.
  • Dogfaces: Slightly more dog-like than in previous incarnations, with more elongated snouts and pointy canines.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: All of them agree that they love their mother.
  • The Family That Slays Together: Ma Beagle often joins her boys in crimes.
  • Family Theme Naming: All of them have names that start with B.
  • Fangs Are Evil: A family trait. All of them have one prominent fang, mostly visible when they speak, but Big Time's sticks out of his mouth even when closed.
  • Gang of Hats: They have numerous variations with their own gimmicks, such as the basic "original classic" Beagle Boys, ones with a glam rock gimmick, Monster Clowns, Totally Radical sports Beagles, and three French stereotypes.
  • It's Personal: Why do they hate Scrooge so much? For stealing the town deed from Grandpa Beagle.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: There are at least two dozen of them showing up for Ma Beagle's birthday.
  • Nice Hat: Many of them wear some kind of headgear, usually green hats.
  • Rule of Three: There are Beagle Boys who are divided into different cliques with each of them having three members.
  • Siblings in Crime: They are all the children of Ma Beagle.
  • Stealth Pun: Their base of operation, shown in "The Beagle Boy Birthday Massacre!", is a rundown scrap yard, making them junkyard dogs.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: While they may vary in size, they all bear a resemblance to one another.
  • Terrible Trio: Gangs of Beagle Boys are divided by Rule of Three and commit various crimes.
  • Would Hurt a Child: None of them have a problem with roughing up children.

    Ma Beagle 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ma_beagle_0.png
Voiced By: Margo Martindale

The family matriarch and the brains of the outfit.
  • Abusive Parents: Belittles and insults her sons. Comes to a point where when her sons fail to get Webby, Lena, and the Duck family triplets as a birthday present for her, she declares that none of them are getting birthdays that year.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: The 1987 Ma Beagle was tough, but loving to her boys. This version of the character can barely constrain her contempt for them.
  • Bad Boss: What's her first reaction to finding out how badly Bigtime screwed up his "perfect scam"? To throw him into the same meat locker the triplets and Webby are trapped in.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Oh, for cryin' out loud!" when she's upset or annoyed.
  • The Dreaded: Almost everybody, from regular civilians, law enforcement, and even her family to some extent, is afraid of her. Even Webby, who had personally humiliated Ma Beagle in her debut, is wary of trying to crash a Beagle Boy birthday party (understandably so, since she gets chased halfway across Duckburg by the family).
  • Establishing Character Moment: "Daytrip of Doom!" shows her punching a guard in the stomach, which causes him to keel over, and then does things like push a Funso patron's head into his ice cream and knock a waitress's tray in her face, for what seems to be no reason.
  • Evil Matriarch: The mother of them all, who supports and orders them in crime.
  • Evil Old Folks: She is an elderly woman and the leader of a family of criminals.
  • Explosive Breeder: She has given birth to at least two dozen children.
  • Karma Houdini: She somehow got pardoned just after the premiere. Predictably, crime skyrocketed as a result. And although she gets captured at the end of her debut episode by Webby, two episodes later she returns free again.
  • Nice Hat: Her yellow hat.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: It's hard to notice, but she notably lacks pie-eyes.
  • Pet the Dog: There seems to be only one person Ma Beagle has genuine affection for: Scrooge's former butler Duckworth. She outright says she misses him (and the amazing parties he threw).
  • Pragmatic Villainy:
    • Puts the kibosh on Bigtime's kidnapping of the triplets and Webby — not for any moral reason, but because doing so paints a target on the Beagle family for Scrooge to come after.
    • She repeats this in McMystery at McDuck Manor, where she notes she would never try to kidnap Scrooge because he would be far, far, far more trouble than he would be worth. Considering that he's the richest duck in the world...
  • Stout Strength: She knocks down a guard who's easily twice her size, easily crushes a plastic ball, and to stop Webby, who she was chasing, she jumps on the bridge in the play area, resulting in it flailing around wildly, indicating she's very strong in spite of seeming rather heavyset.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: She doesn't have a high opinion of her sons. And for good reason.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Underestimates Webby the first time that they clash.
  • Worthy Opponent: She sees Beakley, "McDuck's high-falutin' hooligan" as this, describing her as "strong, ruthless and unforgiving".
    • She isn't shy about her hatred of Beakley, but on the other hand she has nothing but praise for Scrooge's deceased butler Duckworth, even admitting she misses him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Ma Beagle doesn't have a problem with harming Webby, Lena, or the triplets.

The Original Classics

    As a Group 
The three main Beagle Boys appearing in the show, Bigtime, Burger and Bouncer.

    Bigtime Beagle 
Voiced By: Eric Bauza

The leader of the Original Classics and one of the field leaders of the Beagle Boys, with a very inflated opinion of himself and his plans.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: In the original cartoon, Bigtime's plans to get Scrooge's money could be reasonably thought out and came close to succeeding a few times. The 2017 cartoon makes him far dumber than the rest of his brothers to the point that they can all see the flaws in his schemes, with only Bigtime himself believing that they're reasonably thought out.
    "...Don't stick up the policeman's ball, Bigtime! Tanks don't float, Bigtime!"
  • Didn't Think This Through: When he recognizes Webby and the triplets, he decides to kidnap them and send a ransom note to Scrooge. He fails to realize that Scrooge is a notorious skinflint and a seasoned adventurer. Rather than paying a ransom, Scrooge would just go after them to get the kids back.
  • Ironic Name: Twofold; He's called "Bigtime" but is the smallest of the Beagle Boys (as he was in the original), and his harebrained schemes make him the most incompetent of them (which he was not).
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks he's a visionary when it comes to crime, in spite of the fact that his plan in "Daytrip of Doom!" boils down to a basic kidnapping plot and a poorly thought out one at that.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He really wants his mother's approval. Unfortunately for him all of his plans to get it, backfire.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He was all for kidnapping the nephews and Webby. Later, after Louie mocked him, he was getting ready to tackle the kid before Webby clocked him with a frozen pizza.
  • Zany Scheme: Bigtime's plans, ambitious though they might be, are completely nonsensical. In the past, he's proposed such ideas as robbing the Policeman's Ball and trying to float a tank down a body of water.

    Burger Beagle 
Voiced By: Eric Bauza

A skinny, not-so talkative member of the Original Classics.
  • Adaptational Curves: Inverted. This Burger is much thinner and lankier than the plus-sized Big Eater he was in the original series.
  • Ironic Name: In spite of the fact his name is "Burger", he's the skinniest of the Beagle Boys.
  • Only Sane Man: When Bigtime proposes his plan in "Daytrip of Doom!", he's the first to object to it, mostly because it'll get them in trouble with Ma.
  • The Quiet One: He doesn't say much, mostly preferring to make vocal noises to get his point across.

    Bouncer Beagle 
Voiced By: Eric Bauza

The muscle of the Original Classics, with a somewhat dim disposition.
  • Affably Evil: When he ends up going with Bigtime's plan in "Daytrip of Doom!", he apologizes to Carl, the person he captured, for not being able to finish his Armored Truck robbery, before locking him in the back of the truck, saying that they'll do this "[the] same time next month", in a cheerful tone of voice.
  • The Brute: The biggest, strongest and dimmest member of his family.
  • Composite Character: His name is Bouncer, but his muscular physique more closely resembles Bankjob Beagle.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: He has massive chest and forearms with relatively short legs.

Other Beagle Boy Gangs

    The Glam Yankees 
A trio with glam rocker theme.

    The Déjà Vus 
A trio with a French theme.

    The 6th Avenue Meanies 
A trio with an old-fashioned gangster theme.
  • Big Brother Bully: Although their relative ages are unknown, the biggest member of this group uses the smallest member as a punching bag.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The big one has a bulldog-like underbite and wears boxing gloves, the thin one wears a black trench coat, and the short one serves as a punching bag for the big one.
  • Boxing Battler: The biggest Meanie constantly wears boxing gloves.
  • Bully Bulldog: The muscle of the trio has an underbite resembling a bulldog.
  • Butt-Monkey: The smallest member serves the purpose of being a literal punching bag for his larger brother.
  • Conspicuous Trenchcoat: One of them wears a black trench coat and a matching hat.
  • Foil: To the 6th Avenue Friendlies.
  • Kick the Dog: As part of their schtick, they are unnecessarily mean to everyone, including each other.

    The 6th Avenue Friendlies 
A trio with a friendly, polite theme.
  • Affably Evil: They will still rob and kidnap you, but will be incredibly nice while doing so.
  • Foil: To the 6th Avenue Meanies.
  • Perpetual Smiler: All sport a charming, ear-to-ear grin that remains plastered on their face.

    The Longboard Taquitos 
A trio with an extreme sports theme.
  • Cool Board: They all ride skateboards, and at least seem to consider themselves very cool.
  • Totally Radical: They are nineties-style extreme sports fanatics, and speak accordingly.

    The Tumblebums 
A trio with a creepy clown theme. Possibly adopted.
  • Achilles' Heel: As clowns, they are bound to slip on a Banana Peel when they encounter one.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The big one wears a jester outfit and has a second face painted on the back of his head, the thin one wears a black leotard, and the short one wears a top hat and walks around on stilts.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Huey thinks their name sounds cute, but they are a Monster Clown trio who immediately make him regret thinking so when they show up.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Family members, rather than friends. It's made quite obvious in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre" that the rest of their family can't stand them.
  • Monster Clown: They wear creepy clown makeup and clothes, communicate only in creepy whistles, giggles and animalistic noises, and move around in bizarre fashions.
  • Primal Stance: All three of them use all four of their limbs for moving around. The leotard-clad one is the most straight example: he has animalistic moves, almost always running on all fours. The small one with the top hat uses four stilts, two on his legs and two on his arms. The burly jester is also seen occasionally running around on all fours — bent over backwards, which just looks even more wrong.
  • Silent Antagonist: They don't speak at all, instead whistling and laughing.
  • Two-Faced: One of them has a second face painted on the back of his head.

    The Ugly Failures 
A trio with a nerdy loser theme.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: Bungle is big and fat, Bottle is skinny, and Botched Job is tiny.
  • Blinding Bangs: Bottle has his eyes covered with his long, blonde hair.
  • Geek Physiques: Bungle is overweight, whereas Bottle is scrawnier than Burger Beagle.
  • Meaningful Name: Botched Job (a failed attempt at doing something), Bungle (to mess up), and Bottle (British slang for losing one's nerve).
    • More literally, Bottle Beagle loves playing with bottles. At one point he gets one bottle stuck on each of his four fingers.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: They are incompetent even by Beagle Boy standards.
  • Nerd: All three look like stereotypical nerds.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Behind Bottle's bangs are anime-like blue eyes.
  • Quirky Curls: Botched Job has unflattering curly hair that verges on Funny Afro.
  • Unfortunate Names: Both the group name and the names of the individual members just shout that they're the weak link of their family.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: They hope that they will be the ones capturing Webby so that they can get Ma Beagle's approval and become the "Ugly Winners".

    Black Art Beagle 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ducktales_black_arts_beagle.png
Voiced By: Eric Bauza

A solo Beagle Boy who took magic lessons and goes by the stage name Nik Nokturne.
  • Alliterative Name: Besides following the Family Theme Naming of the Beagle family, his stage name, "Nik Nokturne", also alliterates.
  • The Dog Bites Back: His desire to make Ma herself disappear stems from the fact she thought his magic lessons were a waste of time and money. That, and Ma Beagle isn't exactly Mother-Of-The-Year material.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Learns this lesson when the spirit he summoned to attack his enemies turns on him.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He has actual magical powers, such as summoning a spirit, and is a villainous member of the Beagle Boys.
  • Large Ham: Comes with being a Stage Magician.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: While he's initially introduced as a stage magician (or as Huey describes him, an illusionist), he summons an actual spirit.
  • Self-Made Orphan: When he unleashes his summoned spirit on Huey, Dewey and Louie, he mentions he summoned the demon to make Ma Beagle's enemies disappear... as well as Ma herself.
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: He makes a point of announcing that he removed the "c"s from his Stage Name.

Other Antagonists

    Captain Peghook 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/captain_pickhook_0.png
"Curse ye, scurvy life-lubbers!"
Voiced By: Keith Ferguson

The ghost pirate, known as the "Scourge of the River Styx".
  • Beard of Evil: He sports a large, dark Seadog Beard.
  • Evil Laugh: The piratey "har har har" variety.
  • Exact Words: Demands "the head of Scrooge McDuck." Scrooge tosses him the severed head of a statue of Scrooge, to which the pirate laments he should have been more specific as he passes on.
  • Flaming Skulls: His head becomes Wreathed in Flames when he emphasizes he needs the head of Scrooge McDuck.
  • Ghost Pirate: An ethereal pirate captain coming out of a treasure chest, who wouldn't go on to the afterlife until he gets the head of Scrooge McDuck.
  • Incoming Ham: His first words are "Curse ye, scurvy life-lubbers!" as he attacks the triplets, and what little dialogue he has afterward is over the top and loud.
  • Meaningful Name: Has a Seadog Peg Leg ending in a hook.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently, he fought Scrooge sometime before the series started, and has enough animosity that he makes his requirement for moving on to decapitate Scrooge.
  • No-Sell: The Deus-Ex-Caliber does jack squat to him because he's already dead.
  • The Red Baron: He's known as the "Scourge of the River Styx". In Greek mythology, Styx is the river that separates the world of the living and the dead, which implies he was already a Ghost Pirate when he got the title.
  • Skull for a Head: He has a bird skull with a beard he can set on fire.
  • Starter Villain: He's the first truly antagonistic character to come across the Duck family... and thanks to Scrooge's quick thinking, he's dealt with in a matter of minutes, with him solely existing to establish the adventurer's skills to his kin.

    Pixiu 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pixiu_character_image.png
A golden dragon sealed in stone, and one of Scrooge's dangerous artifacts.
  • Advertised Extra: It appears in the Intro, was over-represented in promos, and is on Season 1's poster, which is impressive for a throwaway villain introduced and dealt with in the pilot.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: It seems to be the main antagonist of the pilot, but it doesn't last halfway through the episode and the real villain turns out to be Flintheart Glomgold.
  • Killed Off for Real: Its head snaps off after it's turned to stone.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: It's an Eastern dragon that has an appetite for gold, which makes Scrooge's vault a prime place for a buffet. Interestingly, the name "Pixiu" is actually derived from a completely different gold-eating creature from Chinese mythology.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: One of the few parts of its body that are not golden are a pair of ruby-red eyes, fitting for a menacing monster.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: It was petrified, but will awaken when a gong is struck three times. Naturally, the nephews meddling around leads to it being released.
  • Taken for Granite: After being released from its seal, Scrooge turns it to stone again with the Medusa Gauntlet. Then its head falls off.
  • Warm-Up Boss: It's there to prove that Scrooge isn't a washed-up adventurer like everyone seems to think he is.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: It is killed minutes after its appearance in the pilot episode.

    Liu Hai 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/liu_hai.jpg
At the House of Lucky Fortune, you are all kings!
Voiced By: B.D. Wong

The floor manager of the House of Lucky Fortune, a casino in Macaw.
  • Abstract Eater: He feeds on good luck.
  • Affably Evil: He puts on a charming demeanor to the patrons of this house, which he keeps even after showing his true colors.
  • Domain Holder: He can create physical illusions and reorder the interiors of his casino, albeit the extent of his power is limited to the said casino.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Well, a variant. He thinks all success comes from luck rather than skill and intelligence (like Scrooge) or raw determination (like Donald).
  • Evil Sounds Deep: B.D. Wong gives him a George Takei-like tone.
  • Fat Bastard: It's implied that he grew fat from feeding on Gladstone's good luck, as he loses all his girth when Gladstone is replaced by Donald.
  • Frog Men: He looks like an anthropomorphic toad.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He poses as a floor-manager and a toad like cartoon animal but is, in fact, a luck vampire, the ancient spirit of chance and fortune, who feeds on the luck of his victims, and is a kind of demon from another realm.
  • Jerkass Genie: The House of Lucky Fortune is full of splendor, excitement, and adventure but it's all there to get customers to keep spending and gambling, and so keep them trapped in the casino for all eternity.
  • One-Winged Angel: After revealing himself to be a "luck vampire", he assumes gigantic, jade-colored form with razor-sharp teeth, towering over the ducks.
  • Punny Name: Subverted. His full name, Toad Liu Hai, sounds like it should be a pun on 'totally something' but the 'oohai' comes out gibberish. His name is really a reference to a figure from Chinese myth/folklore and the fact that he's a toad.
  • Shout-Out: Liu Hai is named for a Daoist "God of Wealth" who was often depicted carrying a Jin Chan, a golden toad on a bed of coins.
  • Smug Snake: Always thinks he's in control of a situation, which allows Scrooge to trick him twice.
  • Species Surname: He introduces himself as Toad Liu Hai. As a Chinese character, his surname is before his given name.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: As mentioned under Abstract Eater, he draws strength from good luck. Problem is, Donald Duck's bad luck is practically toxic to him.
  • Toothy Bird: Or rather, Toothy Amphibian. Real frogs and toads lack teeth, but Liu Hai has a whole set of razor-sharp teeth. Justified by being a luck-eating demon rather than an actual toad.

    Goldie O'Gilt 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/goldieogilt_8.jpg

Voiced By: Allison Janney

Scrooge's former lover and one of his current rivals. She is an adventurer like he.

    Lena 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lena.PNG
Voiced By: Kimiko Glenn

A teenager that Webby and the triplets befriend. She is Magica De Spell's niece.
  • Adaptation Name Change: She appears to be a renamed version of Minima De Spell. Word of God later confirmed this, the change was made to make her reveal as Magica's niece a surprise.
  • Becoming the Mask: She seems to honestly enjoy the time she spends with the triplets and Webby, and it's made her slightly more heroic as a result, as when Mrs. Beakley's stuck under a train, she has the choice to just leave her there and nobody would ever know, but chooses to save Beakley. By "Jaw$", Lena admits to Magica that, yes, this is the case and she tries to walk out on her. Unfortunately, Magica forces her to stay put.
  • Berserk Button: A subtle one, but the mention of the word "family" seems to be this for her.
  • The Chessmaster: Effortlessly manipulates Webby and the boys into her corner and insinuate herself with Webby as a close friend, and carve a space for herself in the dynamic of the main cast (aka Webby's gal-pal).
  • Color-Coded Wizardry: When Lena casts spells with her aunt's power, it has a pinkish-purple aura, but using The Power of Friendship turns it a soft blue.
  • Conflicting Loyalties: She's torn between her aunt and her new friends.
  • Cool Big Sis: She's an older female friend of Webby, who looks up to Lena.
  • Damsel in Distress: Becomes this thanks to the Beagle Boys.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: So far, implied. Whenever the topic of her family (or family in general) seems to pop up, her mood sours.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has quite the taste for sarcastic remarks.
  • Expy: She is based off of Minima De Spell.
  • Fake Brit: In-Universe, like Webby, she's capable of faking a British accent if needed. It's implied that she picked it up from Magica, who also has a British accent.
  • Foil: She is this to Louie to some extent, both have a Toxic Friend Influence to Webby and have the bad kid attitude, but have some difference when it comes to family, Louie at least has family that cars about him, while Lena has a bad relation with her aunt.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: With the other ducklings, Lena is the Eclectic (balanced, tempered and rounded).
  • Freudian Excuse: It's not-so subtly implied that her family-life is the exact opposite of the McDuck-Duck Family, which is why she has a bad and rebellious attitude — she gives a pained expression when Mrs. Beakley demands to know who raised her, as well as when Webby rushes to Beakley after a partial cave in of the subway.
    • She even hints at this during "Beagle Birthday Massacre" when she says the reason she avoids family is because all they do is fight.
  • Freudian Trio: Plays the Ego to Huey's Superego and Webby's Id in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!". She, along with Webby, wants to believe that Terra-firmians exist - but she points out that Webby using fanfiction as "proof" doesn't help their case.
  • Full-Contact Magic: When she uses the Amulet's telekinetic powers, she moves as if she was pushing the train itself.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Whenever Lena uses her pendant for magic.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: Lena's got a goth/punk look going on, with dyed hair and a dark colour palette, and she can use her aunt's magic artifacts.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: She wears a shirt and shoes, but no pants or skirt.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: She does consider Webby and the Triplets friends, and she did save Beakley's life, but she later claims that was done to gain her trust and entry into the McDuck Mansion. The jury's still out on her motives and whether or not she intends to go through with her Aunt's agenda. Turns out she doesn't because of her aunt's constant abuse. But she has no choice in the matter..
  • I Just Want to Be Free: The ending of "Jaw$!" implies that Lena's greatest desire is to get out from under Magica's control.
  • Irony: Lena is happy to tease Mrs. Beakley for being English, even though her aunt Magica has an English accent as well.
  • Makeup Is Evil: She wears purple eyeshadows, and is quite mean to the triplets, even suggesting to Webby that she should abandon them. And then there's the reveal that she's working for her aunt, Magica De Spell.
  • The Mole: She's under orders from her aunt Magica to befriend Webby and the triplets for an unknown reason.
  • Power Glows: When using magic, she glows a bright purple.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: She tells Magica that rescuing Beakley helps them maintain a trustworthy image, getting closer to their goal in the long term.
  • Psychic Powers: The Amulet gives her telekinetic powers. She uses them to save Beakley.
  • Shadow Archetype: Webby is drawn to her due to their similar characteristics, but finds that Lena's quick to want to outright abandon the triplets when they come to rescue her on the basis of being a good diversion, and doesn't seem to like the idea of family.
  • The Shadow Knows: Magica manifests herself through her shadow. It nearly gives her away in "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!", when the lights in the subway come back on and Magica's shadow is projected right behind Mrs. Beakley.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: She gets Webby to help her crash Ma Beagle's birthday party, and tries to convince her to ditch the triplets. Later, she convinces the family to go and see a horror movie about mole monsters, telling Beakley that it's going to be "educational".
  • Trapped in Villainy: At the end of "Jaw$", she tries to walk out from her Aunt Magica but her aunt reminds her who's in charge via magic and reminds her why Lena is working for her in the first place. Her freedom.
  • Troll: Her introduction has her sending SOS bottles to mess with people.
  • Walking Spoiler: To a minor extent, but saying anything about her other than the fact she befriended the kids and is a bit of a jerk spoils the last few minutes of episode 4. The fact she's on this page itself should tell you where her allegiances are.
  • White Sheep: Clan McDuck and the De Spells have a blood feud that's been going on for centuries, yet Lena doesn't seem all that interested in it, much to her Aunt Magica's chagrin.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Saves Beakley in episode 5. Although she passes it off as Pragmatic Villainy, gaining Beakley's trust and reliable access to the mansion, the way she stumbles when Magica confronts her on this kind of makes that excuse fall flat.

    Falcon Graves 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/falcon_graves_character_image.jpg

A hired corporate saboteur with a very no-nonsense attitude.
  • Affably Evil: He introduces himself to Mark Beaks and explains what he's going to do in a very professional manner.
  • Animal Stereotypes: Falcons are commonly portrayed as villains in media, and he is no exception.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He wears an elegant suit, and easily beats up all the security guards at Waddle all by himself.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Is fully dressed, but doesn't wear shoes so his talons are visible.
  • Canon Foreigner: One of the many original characters introduced in this incarnation of the series.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He straight-up tells Mark Beaks that he is an industrial spy who wants to steal his Project Ta-Dah, instead of trying to get it in a cunning, manipulative way.
  • The Comically Serious: He has a serious no-nonsense attitude. And he spends most of his time around Mark Beaks, and it drives him up the wall.
  • Consummate Professional: Gives off this vibe. His only interest throughout the episode is to take Project Ta-Dah, and his annoyance stems from Mark Beaks' inability to take him seriously. When he learns that Beaks basically hired him to be a patsy, he decides that Beaks must die for the insult to his professional pride. After being driven back by Dewey and Huey, he opts to cut his losses and leaves.
  • Disney Villain Death: Subverted. Following his fight with Dewey on top of the Waddle office tower, he opens the suitcase, loses his balance due to a lot of cash exploding in his face, and falls off the tower, but he's saved by one of the high-impact trampolines below. At this point he just gives up and leaves.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": His first name is Falcon. In fairness, though, this helps make his an "Awesome McCool" Name.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Walk into a tech company, beat up the security, kidnap the company head, and steal their top-secret project for a boss he's never met for reasons he's never told? Not a problem. Being a pawn to pull off a multi-million dollar con by way of serving as a convenient excuse to never release a product that didn't exist in the first place? Yeah, he's not happy about that.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Falcons have four-toed feet like most birds, but he has three-toed feet.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: By the end of "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!", after surviving a fall, he decides that the whole ordeal has been aggravating and just leaves.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His last name, Graves, indicates that he's willing to put people into their graves.
  • One-Man Army: Mark Beaks' security personnel can barely slow him down.
  • Rage Breaking Point: He gets very impatient with Mark Beaks over the course of "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks", due to the fact Mark completely fails to take the hostage situation seriously. And when he finds out that "Project Ta-Dah!" was a scam, and that Beaks was the one who hired him to be a patsy, he gets so angry at the deception that he decides to just murder Beaks.
    "I do not like being lied to!"
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: Says this when he discovers that "Project Ta-Dah!" is a scam and Mark Beaks hired him to be a patsy.

     Toth-Ra 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toth_ra_character_image.jpg
Voiced By: Bassem Youssef
An ancient Egyptian pharaoh.
  • Advertised Extra: Toth Ra gets billing in the theme song as the mummy that the family pulls apart. A pretty high honor...for a villain who's only around for one episode.
  • Animal Stereotypes: He appears to be a falcon, a bird-of-prey commonly associated with villainy.
  • Eye Beams: His followers believe he has laser eyes. They are not wrong, although paradoxically he's also weakened by sunlight.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: He has glowing, yellow eyes. They also shoot laser.
  • The Juggernaut: After coming alive, he throws people around with relative ease, and is practicably unstoppable until he gets weakened by sunlight.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Beside Magica, he's the only villain who shows no signs of being Laughably Evil.
  • Large and in Charge: He's a lot taller and bulkier than any of his followers.
  • Mummy: He died thousands of years ago, but his mummy is sitting on a throne, commanding his people. The mummy comes alive at the end of the episode.
  • Nepharious Pharaoh: He is an evil, oppressive pharaoh who enslaves his people, at least in his Puppet identity via Sabef. The other version of him we see is as a crazed mummy, and given the elaborate and baroque arrangements to ensure that the Pharoah not be crossed, he must have been very bad news indeed for the Ancient Egyptians to first seal him inside, and then ensure that a Hidden Elf Village guard the hidden tomb for all eternity.
  • Pest Controller: According to his followers, he has green scarab beetles spying for him. At the end of the episode, a beetle crawls to his ear and whispers something in it, implying that the rumor is true.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The tomb of Toth-Ra has a prophecy insisting that nobody should cross the pharoah, with a disc marking it out. The disc is actually the sigil right before Toth-Ra's pedestal, and bringing the Mummy over it, revives it automatically.
  • Shadow Archetype: He serves as one to Scrooge McDuck. He's a powerfully wealthy man who lives in a vault filled with treasure inside a building with his own symbols marking it. Where Scrooge employs people who freely choose to work for him and travel with him, Toth-Ra enslaves his denizens and Scrooge ultimately realizes that some people see as treasure what they value most, accepting a humble burrito from the Living Mummies he liberated in gratitude even if he doesn't personally value it a great deal.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: He has very broad shoulders and long arms.
  • Weakened by the Light: The sunlight through the cupola of the pyramid weakens him enough that Scrooge and gang, and the now revolting Living Mummies burrito wrap him back in the tomb.

     Sabaf 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sabaf_character_image.jpg
Voiced By: Bassem Youssef
A descendant of Toth-Ra's bodyguards.
  • Animal Stereotypes: He's a falcon, and one of the two main villains of the episode.
  • Easily Forgiven: Despite his role as Toth-Ra's enforcer and puppeteer Sabaf's in line for a burrito with the rest of his people.
  • Expy: Of Sarkus, the villain of the episode "Sphinx for the Memories" from the original series. Although Sabaf is a falcon and Sarkus is a pig, both of them are villainous leaders of an Egyptian cult that somehow survived to modern times.
  • Fat Bastard: He's a rather overweight falcon.
  • God Guise: He is the one behind the Toth-Ra façade, only giving the people one hour of sunlight.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Seems to have pulled one at the end, as he joined his people to get some burritos.
  • The Man Behind the Curtain: He controls Toth-Ra's mummy as puppet to stay in power and enslave Toth-Ra's followers.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: His facial markings identify him as a lanner falcon.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He has no qualms about throwing Webby and Louie in a pit full of spikes.

    Briar and Bramble 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ducktales_briar_and_bramble.jpeg

Briar and Bramble

Two friendly, pastel-colored Kelpies who act as quasi-guides on a mystical golf course. Don't take them up on their offers for rides if you value your life.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: They both wear Scottish-style hats but nothing else, as opposed to the Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal ducks and fully-dressed dogfaces.
  • Affably Evil: They are a friendly pair, but their main goal is trick people into going to swim with them so they could drown them. And they are very, very persistent on it, at the point it becomes a Running Gag through the episode.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: They look like pink and purple ponies, though they're actually Kelpies.
  • Call a Rabbit a "Smeerp": They try to invoke this trope on themselves to hide the fact they are Kelpies.
  • Harmless Villain: They are really, really bad at being evil.
  • Mercy Kill: They try to invoke this when its revealed the mists of the realm will turn the mortal ducks to stone, claiming the ducks will be better off letting the kelpies drown them. No one takes them up on the offer, of course.
  • My Little Phony: They are blatant My Little Pony Generation 4 expies put there just for fun. They even have two of the same voice actresses, bordering on Development Gag and Casting Gag; Briar (the pink one) is voiced by Tara Strong, while Bramble (the purple one) is voiced by Andrea Libman. This is a reference to how Andrea Libman was originally supposed to voice Twilight Sparkle (The purple one), while Tara Strong was originally supposed to voice Pinkie Pie (...Guess).
  • Offscreen Teleportation: They constantly pop out from nowhere to try luring Scrooge and company to the water (so they could drown everyone) and even manage to follow everyone to the "real" world to give them a golden trophy for completing the mythical golf course. (And to make a final attempt at drowning everyone.)
  • Obliviously Evil: It's questionable if they even really understand why trying to drown people is bad, given how friendly they are otherwise. In their words it is simply what they generally do.
  • Obviously Evil: Everyone knows they only follow Scrooge and company around because they want to drown them.
  • Running Gag: They keep dropping by to invite everyone to join them in the water (so they can drown them).
  • Spotting the Thread: They pull a very convincing act to pass themselves as ponies, but their wet manes was all that Webby needed to correctly identify them as Kelpies.
  • Theme Naming: Their names both begin with B, and they're also both named after plants that are commonly found in Scotland.
  • Voice Changeling: They (or at least Briar) are capable of mimicking the voices of others.

    Gabby McStabberson 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gabby_mcstaberson.png
"I was raised by warrior monks who spoke only the language of the blade."
Voiced By: Jennifer Hale

An assassin henchwoman working for Glomgold.
  • Action Girl: The only woman in Glomgold's team, and the most competent fighter out of them. Although not competent enough to defeat Webby.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When Glomgold betrays all of his minions, she's the one who asks Donald to let them hitch a ride out (even calling him Mr. Duck, after she's treated him like crap up to this point).
    Gabby: Mr. Duck! Could we...maybe...bum a ride with you?
  • Awesome Mc Cool Name: Almost literally. Her name really sounds like one for a badass assassin.
  • Berserk Button: Do NOT make her miss. Donald almost found this out the hard way.
  • Canon Foreigner: One of the newly invented original characters for the show.
  • Cartoon Creature: Bird version. Her mosaic features could mean she's anything from a pigeon to an owl. When the creators were asked about her species, they answered "Is Grace Jones a type of bird?".
  • Combat Stilettos: She wears high-heel boots as part of her assassin outfit.
  • Dark Action Girl: An assassin for hire and would've killed Launchpad if not for Donald's intervention.
  • Faux Action Girl: However, Glomgold claims she's the cheapest henchwoman he could find, and it shows as in a direct fight, an unarmed Webby easily defeats her. Although to be fair, Webby's been trained to defend herself by Beakley her whole life, and we also see Webby defeat Ma Beagle in a later episode, and Ma is hinted to be considerably more dangerous.
  • Humanoid Female Animal: She has more human-like body proportions than any other bird characters, complete with an hourglass figure.
  • In the Hood: Her outfit consists of a hoodie that better emphasizes her aloofness.
  • Ironic Name: Her first name is "Gabby," a slang term for someone that "talks a lot." She's the strong silent type.
  • Knife Nut: Seen carrying a pair of knives. Spends a spare minute using a scimitar to carve a wooden knife.
  • Meaningful Name: Her last name is McStabberson. Guess what she does for a living?
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: There may be a risk of sharp stabbing pain.
  • Ninja: Appears to be one, fighting with sword and throwing knives.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: She is designed deliberately to resemble actress Grace Jones.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: She is quite busty, despite being a bird.
  • Repetitive Name: Her last name is basically "son of Stabber's son."
    • So, basically, her ancestor that first bore the name was best known for being Stabber's grandson. Makes you wonder how amazing Stabber was that he managed to overshadow two successive generations.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female member of Glomgold's expedition crew to Atlantis.
  • Warrior Monk: Claims to be raised and train by a clan of them.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Had no problem harming Huey, Louie, or Webby. Ethically speaking, that is. From a practical standpoint, however, it didn't work out too well for her.
