The characters in Duck Season. Unmarked spoilers below.

     The Dog 
The mascot of Duck Season.
  • Attack of the Killer Whatever: The Duck Hunt dog is out to kill you!
  • Ax-Crazy: The dog seems alright normally, but if you shoot him...
  • Berserk Button: He does not like being shot at. So much so that he will kill you and your entire family for it.
  • Big Bad: Of the game.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: Explodes into a pile of pixelated blood after you finally manage to defeat him.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Gains these when you fight him in the game. If you don't find a way to disable them (by going for the eyes), he will destroy the screen and give you the "Stuck Forever" ending.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: He gains glowing white pupils when he's in the real world.
  • Immune to Bullets: Subverted; in the game, you can shoot him as much as you want and he won't even have a scratch. In the real world, multiple shots from a machine gun and a few shots from the Light Gun can kill him.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: On top of killing the Boy's mother, if the Boy fails to beat the dog in the game, the dog will mock him after leaving the game and trapping him in the "Stuck Forever" ending.
  • Knife Nut: He uses a kitchen knife to kill your mother and attempt to kill you.
  • Multiple Gunshot Death: Suffers this in the Best Men ending courtesy of the police.
  • Real After All: At first, he seems to just be an annoying character in a video game... then you see him outside your house, FILMING YOU.
  • Sore Loser: If you best him when he challenges you in the game, he'll come after you in the real world.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He goes after the Boy with the intent of stabbing him to death, and he succeeds in the "Dead" ending.

     The Boy (David) 
The protagonist of the game.
  • Children Forced to Kill: He kills the dog after he tries to kill him.
  • Infant Immortality: Averted in the "Dead" ending. Played straight in the "Canon" ending.
  • No Name Given: Averted, the painting his father gave him says his name is David.
  • The Runaway: Becomes one of the "Orphan" type in the Canon ending after his mother is killed by the dog.

     The Mom 
The mother of the protagonist.
