    Alternate Darkwings 

The second arc of the Boom Studios comic book had Negaduck and Magica DeSpell kidnap and hypnotize every alternate version of Darkwing Duck they can find in the multiverse. Quiverwing Darkwing and Dark Warrior Duck end up turning on Negaduck and Magica and eventually the other Darkwings come to their senses as well.

  • Animate Inanimate Object: Bowling Ball Darkwing, which is just a bowling ball topped with Darkwing's trademark hat. A talking bowling ball somehow able to move on its own power, but outside the hat, visibly no different from any other bowling ball.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Negaduck and Magica use mind control to enslave the alternate Darkwings.
  • Captain Ersatz/Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: Many of the alternate Darkwings are parodies of other superheroes and copyrighted characters, including, but not limited to, Optimus Prime, Popeye the Sailor Man, Batman and Robin, Bart Simpson, and Rorschach.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Caveman Darkwing rides on a Tyrannosaurus rex.
  • Kitchen Sink Included: One of the alternate Darkwings is a flying kitchen sink.
  • Legacy Character: One "Darkwing" is dressed as the Quiverwing Quack, Gosalyn's superhero identity from an episode of the show. He reveals that in his universe, he used to be Darkwing, and Gosalyn/Quiverwing was his sidekick. When she was killed during a mission, he took the identity of the Quiverwing Quack to honor her memory. Appropriately, he ends up fighting Darkwarrior Duck, who went down a much darker path as a reaction to losing Gosalyn. Quiverwing absolutely wrecks him.
  • Monster Mash: There is a vampire Darkwing, a Creature from the Black Lagoon Darkwing, a Frankenstein Darkwing, a mummy Darkwing, and a werewolf Darkwing.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: There are alternate Darkwings that parody real-life musicians, including Lady Gaga, The Jonas Brothers, and KISS.
  • Not Brainwashed: Darkwarrior Duck reveals that Negaduck and Magica did not hypnotize him and that he was working with them willingly so that he could "clean up" our Darkwing's St. Canard the same way he did to his own.

    Femme Appeal

A foxy F.O.W.L. agent who turns out to be a double agent working for S.H.U.S.H.

  • Captain Ersatz: Her name and occupation are a nod to Emma Peel from the British television show The Avengers.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: An anthropomorphic fox who is a secret agent.
  • Mama Bear: Femme Appeal, seeing the captured Gosalyn and Honker, decides that the combination of Duckcthulhu rising and children being in danger is sufficient reason for her to blow her cover as The Mole to FOWL.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She wears a Spy Catsuit.
  • Reverse Mole: She initially appears to be a F.O.W.L. agent, but the end of the "F.O.W.L. Disposition" arc reveals that she is really on S.H.U.S.H.'s side.
  • Would Not Hurt A Child: When she sees Gosalyn and Honker inside F.O.W.L. headquarters, she's appalled that two children are in danger.


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, Evil Is Not a Toy.

  • Captain Ersatz: Obviously, a Cthulhu parody.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Named after the most famous one of all.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: F.O.W.L. quickly learned that Duckthulhu could not be controlled as they'd hoped.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of F.O.W.L. Disposition. The F.O.W.L. High Command intended to awaken him for their own intentions, but he proved to be too powerful to control.
  • Lovecraft Lite: While dark by the story's standards, it's sorta hard to take seriously compared to the original Cthulhu. Especially with that duck bill.
  • Skewed Priorities: 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.
  • Taken for Granite: Starts off as a statue.

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

"Gotta change it up."
"Saint Canard, meet your newest, greatest, and deadliest foe! You can call this straight shooter... One-Shot."
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.
  • Punny Name: One-Shot refers to both the fact that he can only throw any given item once (but he can throw any item once) and the fact that he only fights Darkwing once.
  • Reality Ensues: How Darkwing defeats him: One-Shot gets tricked into pulling out a truly enormous bomb. However, as One-Shot isn't strong enough to lift what is effectively an ICBM, he gets crushed under its weight.

A classmate of Gosalyn's named Mortimer L. Marquand who was driven to become a criminal wearing Powered Armor. In the original version, it was because of an unrequited crush on Gosalyn, but Joe Books omnibus changed it to being a bullied kid protected by Gosalyn and wanting to follow her example.
  • Cats Are Mean: A villainous cat.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: He starts out as a villain corrupted through a misguided example of looking up to Gosalyn. In "Orange is the New Purple" he's reformed, but decides he likes being evil and wants to join forces with Negaduck... only to be unable to go through with it, helping Darkwing and Gosalyn out in the end. Then he goes back to Heel when he joins forces with Fluffy and breaks him out of prison.
  • Love Makes You Evil: In the original version, his Start of Darkness was having a crush on Gosalyn and never understanding that Gosalyn isn't interested.
  • Punny Name: 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.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Darkwing in The Definitively Dangerous Edition and in Orange Is the New Purple
  • Captain Ersatz: Her costume and using illusions to torment Darkwing make her very similar to the Spider-Man villain Mysterio. Furthered in her return appearance, where she adopts a new supervillain name similar to Mysterio's.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: She makes a brief cameo in the background amongst the crowd at the beginning of the fifth issue, long before her proper introduction.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: She tried to use dishonest methods to win the election, but was arrested when her illegal tactics were exposed.
  • Noodle Incident: According to Launchpad, Constance A. Dention also broke the law by naming a horse "Mr. Butterbean".

    The Phantom Blot 
A supervillain in a black cloak who was encountered by Darkwing at the end of the Boom comic's original run.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: He and Magica DeSpell are the main antagonists of "Dangerous Currency".
  • The Faceless: Averted in "Campaign Carnage", where his unmasked self appears pretending to be a campaign manager named Bob and he isn't in his costume until the end of the story. Played straight in "Dangerous Currency".
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: 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.
  • Sequel Hook: 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 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.

How well does it match the trope?
