Tropes associated with Wildwing:

  • Indy Ploy: Wildwing has shown that he's tactically smart, as well as physically strong.

  • Weapon of Choice: A Puck Launcher on his left gauntlet.

Nosedive Flashblade

Voiced by: Steve Mackall

A wiseguy and the most laid-back of the team. Wildwing's younger brother, who initially wasn't meant to be part of Canard's resistance. Once on Earth, Nosedive becomes an official member of the team, both on and off the ice.

Tropes associated with Nosedive:

  • Medium Awareness: Everyone in the team gets a go, but he's the one who most often jabs at the fourth wall.

Duke L'Orange

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A notorious jewel thief on Puckworld, Duke changed his ways to battle Lord Dragaunus.

Tropes associated with Duke:

  • Chivalrous Pervert: Though less offensive than most.
  • Cool Sword: Duke wields both an energy blade and later the magical "Star Sword", given to him by Borg.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was once the leader of a gang called the "Brotherhood of the Blade."
  • Eyepatch of Power: He wears an eye patch, possibly as a result of his past as a thief.
    "Hey, take it easy! You can put someone's eye out with that thing. I should know."
  • Reformed Criminal: Stopped stealing in order to help the resistance against the Saurians. While he keeps his skills sharp, he is fully devoted to show it's stuck.
  • Weapon of Choice: A golden sword called a saber.

Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Mallory, a fiery redhead, is a former member of Puckworld's military. Well-versed in the martial arts. She has a sharp tongue and she's a strict disciplinarian.

Tropes associated with Mallory:

  • Weapon of Choice: Shes well-learned in her home world's version of martial arts, though most of the time she's happy with using a Puck Blaster.

Tanya Gertrude Vanderflock

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tanya_Vanderflock_2905.jpg
Voiced by: April Winchell

The Ducks' resident tech-genius. She is good with mechanics and uses her Omnitool on her wrist for many of her projects.

Tropes associated with Tanya:

  • Action Girl: Not as much as Mallory, but she can hold her own in a fight.

Check "Grin" Hardwing

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Grin_7589.jpg
Voiced by: Brad Garrett

Super strong with a Zen-like philosophy, Grin is wise and doesn't let his anger cloud his judgment. He is a good friend of Nosedive. During Grin's youth, he had a horrible temper. He found enlightenment with the training from the grand hockey master, Tai Quack Do.

Tropes associated with Grin:

  • Expy: Of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.
  • Gentle Giant: Easily the largest of the Ducks, and also the nicest.
  • Ice-Cream Koan: Most of his Koans, make zero sense.
    Grin: Pain is an illusion... an illusion that really, really hurts!
  • Made of Iron: The guy survives being thrown through brick walls on a daily basis.
  • Mighty Glacier: Grin can be a bit slow to get going, but packs a hell of a punch once he does.
  • Super Strength: Grin's grabbed Siege (who weighs 1500 pounds according to design sheets) and spun him around by his tail before tossing him on more than one occasion.
  • Weapon of Choice: He prefers his fists.

Allies

Phil Palmfeather

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Phil_Palmfeather_7073.jpg
Voiced by: James Belushi

The ducks' manager when they play hockey.

Tropes associated with Phil:

  • Manchurian Agent: Becomes one to Wraith in the episode "Phil in the Blank."
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Phil avoids being completely unsympathetic in that, while he has an obvious greed issue, it never completely outweighs his few good qualities and sense of morality.

Villains

Lord Dragaunus

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dragaunus_1657.jpg
Voiced by: Tim Curry

Leader of the Saurians, Dragaunus is evil incarnate. He doesn't take kindly to the failures of his cronies. Most of Dragaunus' schemes involve trying to create an alternative fuel source for his flagship, The Raptor.

Tropes associated with Dragaunus:

  • Bad Boss: Often abuses his troops when he's in a bad mood. Which is pretty often.
  • Big "NO!": Gives one about every episode, usually when the ducks foil his latest scheme.
  • The Chessmaster: He's a very capable strategist and manipulator.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Smoke even comes out of his nostrils whenever he's really angry, though we never see him actually breathe fire.
  • Faux Affably Evil: When he's not being abusive to his troops, he can be fairly civil to those he's trying to con.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He's sometimes set off even faster than Siege, and usually blows up hunter drones left and right once he is.
  • Hannibal Lecture: Toward Wildwing in the first episode.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the first episode, when he assumed the Mask of Drake Ducaine was lost in limbo. He ended up giving Wildwing the confidence to finally put it on.
  • Shoulders of Doom: Crossed with Spikes of Villainy.
  • Take Over the World: His ultimate plan was to conquer Puckworld. His plans changed when he became stranded on Earth.
  • Team Rocket Wins: The series opens with Dragaunus' forces invading Puckworld and taking over the planet. Unfortunately for him, it went downhill from there.

Wraith

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mighty_Ducks_Wraith_8107.jpg
Voiced by: Tony Jay

A Saurian warlock with a very dry sense of humor. He shuns weapons in battle, preferring to use magically conjured fireballs, and often tries to convince his comrades of the advantages of their ancestral powers. He is very glum, often predicting failure. Of course, he is usually right.

Tropes associated with Wraith:

  • Affably Evil: Tends to be just a bit more polite/softly spoken than his boss.
  • The Cassandra: For all his accurate predictions, none of the other Saurians ever listen to him.
  • Co-Dragons: Shares the role of The Dragon with Siege.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Just about everything he says is sarcastic.
  • Evil Genius: Probably the most intelligent Saurian aside from Dragaunus himself, or at least the most rational.
  • Flight: He can levitate himself and other objects with his powers.
  • Irony: Interestingly, he's savvy enough to know almost exactly when the Saurians are going to be defeated every episode.
  • Magic Staff: Carries one of these around, it has a duck skull impaled on the upper end.
  • Playing with Fire: Loves to lob fireballs at his opponents, and he used a sword made entirely out of fire in the pilot.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: While the other Saurians' eyes are usually some shade of yellow or green, Wraith's are red.
  • Sour Supporter: A rare villainous version; for all his gloomy predictions he goes along with Dragaunus's plans anyway.
  • Squishy Wizard: He prefers to fight with magic, not hand to hand.

Siege

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mighty_Ducks_Siege_2312.jpg
Voiced by: Clancy Brown

A hulking, saurian soldier who is aggressive and has a strong hatred for the Ducks. He can also be viewed as Dragaunus' second in command.

Tropes associated with Siege:

  • Trigger Happy: He's usually the first to start blasting away at the ducks in battle.

Chameleon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mighty_Ducks_Chameleon_8802.jpg
Voiced by: Frank Welker

A shapeshifter with the ability to increase or decrease his strength, size and dexterity depending on his transformations. Most of the time, he ends up wasting his powers a lot by doing corny impressions of human celebrities.

Tropes associated with Chameleon:

  • Beware the Silly Ones: Chameleon's a total goofball who usually can't focus for beans, but he can still be a challenge to the Ducks when he really feels like it.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: He's sick and evil, but he's also the source of much comedic relief.
  • Glamour Failure: He can shapeshift into pretty much anyone he wants. But unless he puts a real effort into it, he can't complete the disguise.
  • Harmless Villain: Most of the time, but even the silly can still be a hassle.
