Webby's friends

    Lena De Spell 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lena_de_spell.png
"It's not an adventure if you're invited!"
Voiced By: Kimiko Glenn

A teenager that Webby and the triplets befriend. She is related (and bound) to Magica De Spell.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Magica's Shadow in the original series is an antagonist who never made a Heel–Face Turn, in contrast to Lena.
  • Adaptation Name Change: She's based on Minima De Spell, to the extent that she's Magica's niece who befriends Webby, but has a different name. According to the writers this was to make it more surprising when she revealed the relation, although it might also be because unlike Minima, Lena is not literally Magica's niece.
  • The Ageless: If the scene portraying Lena creation is to be taken literally, she looked the same now as when she was created fifteen years ago.
  • Age Lift: Minima in the comics was the same age as Webby (which also makes her younger than the boys). Here, she's a few years older than Webby, and by extent, the boys as well.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Lena is actually Magica's shadow, given life, making her practically Magica's daughter, rather than niece. By the point this is discovered, Lena had already sided with the Duck family.
  • Artificial Human: Well, duck in this case. "The Shadow War!" reveals Lena is actually Magica's shadow given corporeality and sentience.
  • Back from the Dead: She is resurrected to her corporeal form in "Friendship Hates Magic!"
  • 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.
  • Born as an Adult: Was possibly born as a teenager thanks to Magica's magic, though that may have just been an artistic embellishment for the flashback.
  • Canon Character All Along: Revealed at the end of her first appearance to be Magica's niece, basically making Lena a differently-named version of Minima De Spell (a character from the comics based on the first cartoon). Turns into a double example when it's revealed Lena is also Magica's Living Shadow, who was a one-time character in the 1987 cartoon.
  • 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, like Magica's own powers, but using The Power of Friendship turns it a soft blue.
  • Composite Character: She's based off of Minima DeSpell as she's Magica's "niece" that befriends Webby, but her origin story, i.e. that she is Magica's shadow separated from her physical form, is similar to the One-Shot Character from the 1987 cartoon.
  • 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. To a lesser extent, the boys see her as one too.
  • 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.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She wears a black shirt and is a living shadow and has shown some noble traits.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has quite the taste for sarcastic remarks.
  • 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.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Violet. Lena initially disliked her because she was jealous of her taking her place as Webby's Best Friend. They eventually bond because they both care about Webby not to mention that she owes it to Violet for bringing her back to life, and much to Lena's delight Violet also has an impish sense of humor.
  • 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 who cares 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.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: In "Friendship Hates Magic!", she grows jealous of Webby's new friend Violet Sabrewing, believing she is up to no good.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Grew beyond desiring the revenge Magica created her to carry out, largely as a result of her friendship with Webby.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: She wears a shirt and shoes, but no pants or skirt.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Lena attempts to turn on her aunt by telling Scrooge, but she's prevented from saying her name, and now her aunt has taken over her entire body. But then, Webby is able to bring her shadow self back with her friendship bracelet, and Lena buys the Ducks time, but at the cost of her own life.
  • 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.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Takes a death spell targeted towards Webby by Magica. Lena practically dies... but the essence of her soul resides in Webby's shadow.
  • I Have No Daughter!: After Magica spends so much time of having Lena bound to her services, Magica reaches the You Have Outlived Your Usefulness moment and Lena finally fights back against her oppressive aunt, standing up for Webby:
    Lena: Get away from my best friend, Aunt Magica!
    Webby: Lena?
    Magica: Aunt? You're even worse than her. You aren't my family! You are nothing!
  • 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.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: When Lena's trapped in the magical cage with Scrooge, who blames her for letting Magica into his home, Lena reminds Scrooge that he let his guard down when his family left him alone. Lena tells Scrooge that compared to her abusive Aunt Magica, his family is awesome, and she wishes she was a part of Scrooge's family. Scrooge agrees to accept her as part of the family if she helps bring his family back together.
  • I Owe You My Life: What earns Violet Lena's friendship is the former bringing her back to the mortal realm.
  • Ironic Name: Lena, as a short form of Helena, means "Torch" or "Light." She is in league with a dark sorceress, as well as secretly a Living Shadow.
  • Irony: Lena is happy to tease Mrs. Beakley for being English, even though her aunt Magica has an English accent as well.
  • Living Shadow: Turns out she's not Magica's niece at all, but an extension of herself that came to be when Scrooge trapped her in their final battle. After seemingly sacrificing herself in the battle against Magica, Lena manages to survive by becoming Webby's shadow.
  • Makeup Is Evil: She wears purple eyeshadow, 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.
  • Mind over Matter: The Amulet gives her telekinetic powers. She uses them to save Beakley.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: A more competent version than average; Lena is plenty smart and competent, but obviously dislikes Magica for her constant mistreatment, and constantly passes up actually continuing Magica's schemes in favor of helping Webby.
  • Minor Living Alone: Lena is never seen living at a house, and spends a lot of time at the amphitheatre. The supplementary comics for the show state that she dropped out of a boarding school. In the season 1 finale, it's revealed she lives in the space under the amphitheatre stage. The triplets comments that it's a depressing uncomfortable place and why she prefers staying at the mansion when she can. Then again the same scene also revealed she ain't exactly a minor...
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: She eventually turns against her abusive master / "aunt" and helps the Ducks in defeating her, even pulling a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • The Mole: She's under orders from her aunt Magica to befriend Webby and the triplets to get Scrooge's #1 Dime.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Magica's Shadow never has a proper name in the original series, while in here Magica's Shadow is given the name, Lena.
  • Nephewism: Much like the triplets, Lena's only known family is her aunt Magica. This becomes a very dark subversion when it turns out Lena is a Living Shadow to whom Magica is essentially a Truly Single Parent, a relation neither wants to acknowledge—Lena because Magica is a terrible guardian, Magica because she doesn't see Lena as family, or even a real person.
  • Not Quite Dead: Magica seemingly vaporizes her in the season 1 finale, but she managed to survive as Webby's shadow.
  • The One Who Wears Shoes: Unlike other cartoon animals who appear, she's one of the few to actually wear shoes, specifically a pair of sneakers. Still no pants, though.
  • Only One Name: Despite her relation to Magica, Lena is never quite referred to as "De Spell". This is likely a combination of Lena hiding said relation, not valuing her connection to the De Spell clan, and Magica not really considering Lena family.
  • 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.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Her ultimate goal in working for her aunt is...being free from her aunt possessing her shadow and constantly bullying her.
  • Redemption Equals Death: Subverted. After all the harm she has caused Webby and her companions, she ended up sacrificing herself to save them from Magica. But, since she's just an extension of Magica, and with her powers gone, it means she no longer exists... at least, as far as the heroes know. Unbeknownst to them, she subsequently manifests through Webby's shadow instead.
  • 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 Lena's 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. A split-second shot of Webby's shadow turning into Lena at the end of the season 1 finale is what gives away that Lena isn't dead after all.
  • Sibling Team: She got adopted by Violet's dads sometime after the events of "Friendship Hates Magic!" according to Word of God, making her and Violet sisters. They're also part of Scrooge's strike force in "Moonvasion!", with Violet even wielding a mace that appears to have been made by Lena's magic.
  • 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.
  • Troubled, but Cute: Under the snarky and rebellious exterior, Lena is a nice kid. If only she didn't have Magica as her guardian...
  • 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. And then she becomes a bigger case of this in the Season 1 finale where she's revealed to be created from Magica's shadow rather than being her biological niece.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Calls out Scrooge for driving his family away, since that's what allowed Magica to intrude into his mansion and regain her power and full form.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Violet Sabrewing 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_prjxi79ovm1siq668_540.png
"All my life, I’ve been rational, never giving things like magic a second thought. But when the Shadow War happened, it jolted something in me. Opened my eyes! There's a world beyond textbooks and rational truths! One I'm compelled to know more about."
Voiced by: Libe Barer
A girl Webby meets at the library with an interest in magic and the occult.
  • Agent Scully: Used to be this way until the Shadow War happened, which compelled her to learn more about magic.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Sabrewing is a pretty awesome name, even though it's the species of bird she belongs to.
  • Crazy-Prepared: She apparently gets that being connected to the McDucks is inherently dangerous. So, when Webby is going over their sleepover equipment, she jumps to mention the weapons they also have on hand.
  • Creepy Good: Why Lena doesn't trust her at first.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: As it turns out, the purple Nightmare Fetishist who wound up with Magica's amulet is just a normal, friendly nerd.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Fitting for her Spock-like personality.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Named after the species of bird she belongs to.
  • Expy: According to Suspenders of Disbelief, her personality was inspired by Egon Spengler.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Lena. Lena initially disliked her because she was jealous of her taking her place as Webby's Best Friend. They eventually bond because they both care about Webby and much to Lena's delight she also has an impish sense of humor.
  • Has Two Daddies: She has two dads according to Frank Angones, who are set to debut sometime in season three.
  • Humble Goal: Her new friends have various dreams of popularity, perpetual comfort, always being looked up to or becoming Scrooge Mcduck. Violet just wants some extra time to keep learning even more about the world (especially pertaining to magic).
  • Informed Species: Her beak is much wider than an actual hummingbird's, making her look more like a purple crow or magpie. Not helping is that violet sabrewings are a Seldom-Seen Species, so some viewers might not pick up on the name.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She has a love for all things spooky and occult.
  • Omniglot: Speaks several dead languages, such as Old Norse and conversational Akkadian.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Violet sabrewings are a species of large hummingbirds with violet hues, indigenous to Southern Mexico, Central America, South Costa Rica, and Western Panama. For bonus points, hummingbirds in general are seldomly used as anthropomorphic animals.
  • Sheep in Sheep's Clothing: Despite many things making Lena suspicious (carrying around Magica's amulet, investigating the Shadow War, sleeping over the same time a bunch of specters show up), Violet's interest in Webby is completely innocuous.
  • Sibling Team: Lena got adopted by Violet's dads sometime after the events of "Friendship Hates Magic!" according to Word of God, making her and Violet sisters. They're also part of Scrooge's strike force in "Moonvasion!", with Violet even wielding a mace that appears to have been made by Lena's magic.
  • Spock Speak: Has the distinctive speech of someone who is Hollywood Intelligent. She's even the only one who calls Webby by her unabbreviated name "Webbigail".
  • The Stoic: Violet lampshades that she affects a monotone voice, in order to avoid confusion.
  • Token Minority: Violet is the only kid in Webby's circle of friends (including the triplets) to not be a duck.
  • Youthful Freckles: Or rather, spots on her facial plumage that resemble freckles.

"The storm has unsurprisingly centered above McDuck Manor."
Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren
A television reporter in Duckburg, who's more interested in making engaging TV than accurate reporting.
  • Animal Gender-Bender: Real life green ducks are all male, as shown in the page image.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In "Jaw$!", she initially seems like a nice person who actually does her research on Scrooge — and then frames Scrooge as a bad guy and engineers a confrontation between him and Glomgold just because the tension makes good TV.
  • Characterization Marches On: In "Woo-Hoo", she appears to be an honest journalist. Her subsequent appearances show her more interested in twisting the facts to paint a negative portrait of her story subject, all to make better TV.
  • Depending on the Writer: Her characterization is inconsistent. Sometimes, like in "Jaw$!", she's very much into Malicious Slander and willing to twist the facts to make the story more interesting. Other times, like in "Storkules in Duckburg!", she has a much more positive attitude.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite her attitude against Scrooge, she also seems to have a low opinion of Glomgold and is quick to praise Zan Owlson leading Glomgold Industries with sanity. Roxanne also seems to believe, whatever else she's said about Scrooge, he's clearly a more competent businessman (at least compared to Glomgold).
    • She's one of the characters shown to be visibly appalled by Glomgold's behavior during Scrooge's fake funeral in "The 87-Cent Solution."
  • Expy: Of Webra Walters from the original series, who herself was a No Celebrities Were Harmed version of Real Life news reporter Barbara Walters. Her name was changed because Walters is not as famous now as she was in the '80s.
  • Green and Mean: She has green feathers, and she's a nosy journalist who loves scandal.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Despite appearing as an unpleasant person in most of her appearances, in "The 87 Cent Solution" she's genuinely upset when told Scrooge has supposedly died. She even attends his funeral on her own, that is, not for the sake of reporting a story, and shows as much disgust at Glomgold's gloating as everyone else.
  • Intrepid Reporter: When a money shark is rampaging through Duckburg, she follows Scrooge to the location.
  • Malicious Slander: She paints Scrooge in her interview as a horrible person, because it makes great news on television.

    Terra-firmians 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/terra_firmians_2017.jpg
A species of rock creatures who live in abandoned subway tunnels beneath Duckburg.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: The Terra-firmians in the Carl Barks comics only cared about their various games, and were completely indifferent to the havoc they caused above ground. While we did not see what the entire Terra-firmian civilization is like, this particular group consists of five curious and adventurous children.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The group of the Terra-firmians the Ducks run into happen to be color-coded the same way the Ducks are with their shirts: there's a red, blue, green, purple and black one. Furthermore, the red one and the purple one seem to have exactly the same personalities as their duck-counterparts Huey and Webby, with the red-colored one having the same scared reaction to the unknown as Huey, and the purple one trying to convince him that ducks are real.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: As they follow the ducks, they unintentionally cause considerable damage to the train car.
  • Faeries Don't Believe in Humans, Either: They are just as awed by the existence of duck-people as the ducks are by theirs.
  • Hero of Another Story: They appear to be another group of adventurous children, who got closer to the surface to find out whether the "bill-faced creatures from above" are real or not.
  • Not So Different: They actually find the Ducks just as mysterious as the Ducks find them.
  • Real After All: Not surprising, given the world of adventure the show takes place in, but they still fall into this trope because of Huey's Arbitrary Skepticism.
  • Rock Monster: They are boulder-like creatures that initially seem monstrous to the ducks.
  • Silicon-Based Life: They are made of rock, and can even curl into a ball form to roll around.

    Mamá Cabrera

"I have never been more proud in my life."
Voiced by: Selenis Leyva

The mother of Fenton. She is also a police officer.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the original she was a lazy, nagging housewife. Here she's a police officer and while a little pushy is considerably kinder and more selfless.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: The original was frumpy spending all her time wearing a bathrobe and constantly having curlers in her hair. Here she's very good looking.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the original she was a lazy housewife, save two occasions, one where she became psychic and one where she filled in for Fenton as Gizmoduck. Here she's a plainclothes police officer.
  • Ambiguous Situation: It's not explicitly confirmed that she learns her son is Gizmoduck at the end of "Who is Gizmoduck?!" The fact Fenton hides his visor from her in "The Dangerous Chemistry of Gandra Dee!" implies no, she doesn't know. As of "Moonvasion!" she's figured it out, much to Fenton's denial.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In her first appearance in "Who is Gizmoduck?!", Mamá Cabrera bursts through the door, already off on a tirade about having to clean up the mess Gizmoduck made at the bank and asks Fenton if he did anything productive today without pausing, showing that she is passionate, no-nonsense and rather bossy.
  • Fair Cop: A police officer who is also a Big Beautiful Woman.
  • Good Parents: While she wishes Fenton would leave Gyro for a paying job, she still loves him and wants him to be happy.
    "You want to do so much. You have all the right intentions, but you can't do everything at once. What do you actually want to be?"
  • Mama Bear: As shown in her interactions with Huey and her own son. When she learns Fenton has a Not a Date with Gandra Dee, she promises to "hunt her down and dismantle her life, piece by piece," should she break her son's heart.
  • No Name Given: As she has only spoken with her son so far, her first name is yet to be said.
  • Not So Above It All:
    • Despite her badass demeanor she likes to watch Telenovelas in her downtime.
    • When Scrooge come to talk to Fenton, she not-so-subtly whispers "See if you can get money out of it, he's loaded" before leaving the two of them alone, much to the billionaire's annoyance.
  • Race Lift: From Caucasian to Latina like her son, as shown by her brown feathers.
  • The Real Heroes: In her debut episode she goes out of her way to save Huey, not once but twice!
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: As revealed in "Moonvasion!", she was aware that Fenton was Gizmoduck the whole time, reminding him that she's both a detective and his mother.
  • Spicy Latina: She's certainly a vivacious woman and her speech is peppered heavily with Spanish.

    Tenderfeet / Gavin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2018_07_21_at_101458_pm.png
So… you found out the Bigfoot in your house is scamming you. Trouble is, the Bigfoot in your house is scamming you! And watch out, bro. He lifts!

Voiced by: Sam Riegel
A Bigfoot that Huey befriends and brings to McDuck Manor.
  • Androcles' Lion: Huey removes a thorn from his foot, earning the apparent friendship of Tenderfeet.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: A dogface-like Bigfoot resembling the one from A Goofy Movie.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He pretends to be a sweet, innocent animal, but actually is a lazy, mean moocher who is willing to threaten people with violence.
  • Civilized Animal: Apparently he and the other Bigfoots are like this, living in the woods and not wearing clothes, but able to speak fluently and use technology like cell phones.
  • Con Artist: Pretends to be a non-sapient animal so that he can mooch off the Duck triplets.
  • Crocodile Tears: He cries whenever Louie denies him something.
  • Fratbro: His real personality.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: Despite being naked in his original appearance, he wears a full suit with giant shoes in his cameo in "The Richest Duck in the World!", which he apparently stole from someone.
  • Gentle Giant: Pretends to be a friendly beast with a sensitive soul. He drops his gentle act towards Louie when he finds out about his con.
  • Hate Sink: Despite his minimal screentime, the fact that he pulls a cruel scam toward the triplets and threatens to bring harm to Louie and his family if he rats him out makes it clear what a despicable soul he is.
  • Jerkass: He shamelessly tricks Huey and Dewey into believing that he's a poor, innocent animal while mooching them off, and he physically threatens Louie if he reveals the scam to his brothers. He also shortchanges Scrooge for a shoe-shine.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Gavin tricks Huey and Dewey into thinking he's a friendly, simple-minded beast from the forest, and antagonizes Louie when he sees through the con. Louie, in the end, takes Gavin's presentation of himself and turns it against him, convincing his brothers that "Tenderfeet", being but a simple creature of the wild, will die if he is not made to return to his majestic forest home, and even manages to slap him around a bit under the guise of tearfully pushing him away for his own good.
    Louie: (as Gavin smirks at him after threatening his brothers) Oh, bigfoot, you just poked a bear.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He pretends to be a non-sapient creature to win the sympathy of the triplets.
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: When pretending to be a dumb animal, he only talks in grunts, but appears to understand what the Ducks say. However, he can actually talk fluently.

Fisher
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_20181105_180845.jpg
Mann

Voiced by: John DiMaggio (Fisher), Grey Griffin (Mann)
Two fishers working at Duckburg's marina. They temporarily befriend Flintheart Glomgold when he has amnesia.
  • Animal Stereotypes: A seagull and a pelican, two fish-eating bird species, working as fishers.
  • Graceful Loser: They are well aware that they cannot compete with Scrooge McDuck's modern, expensive fishing boat, and explain to Duke Baloney that there's nothing wrong with being second best.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": "Fisher" is both his name and his profession.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Mann is a large, masculine-looking pelican-woman. Glomgold does call her a fisherman (before actually knowing her name), which she takes offense to.
  • Last-Name Basis: They keep calling each other by their last names, and we never learn their first names.
  • Meaningful Name: Fisher works as a fisher; Mann is a manly-looking woman. Their name, when said together, sounds like "fisherman".
  • Nice Guy: Both of them are honest and kind people.

    Zan Owlson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2018_11_03_at_100440_pm.png
"NO. ELABORATE. SCHEMES. TODAY."
Voiced by: Natasha Rothwell
A businesswoman who temporarily took over Glomgold Industries in Glomgold's absence. Once he returns, she's reassigned to be the CFO — which, at Glomgold Industries, sadly means reduced to being Glomgold's babysitter and trying to save the company from himself.
  • Animal Eyes: She has yellow eyes like a real-life diurnal owl.
  • Animal Stereotypes: Surprise, surprise. The resident owl character is portrayed as wise and intelligent.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: After Glomgold returns to his company, Owlson's job as CFO is reduced to essentially Glomgold's nanny, making sure he doesn't misuse company funds for inane scheming and acts like a legitimate adult in public.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When you have to work with kooky businessmen, and your direct superior is a total psychopath, you're bound to get sarcastic.
  • The Dragon: To Glomgold, very reluctantly.
  • Foil: To Scrooge's Board of Directors. While both are concerned about unnecessary funds and the PR damage of their perspective eccentric superior could do to their companies, the key difference is that Owlson is also interested in making money, actively bidding on new contracts. By contrast Scrooge's Board is concerned about cutting costs and only cutting costs; Scrooge is the one who actively bids on contracts and is always looking for new ventures. In addition, while Zan has good intentions and actually cares about other people, the Board are actually the F.O.W.L. high command.
  • Humiliation Conga: She went from being the CEO who was able to turn Glomgold Industries around to being the beleaguered CFO engaged in a futile effort to stop Glomgold from ruining all her hard work (and by proxy her reputation).
  • Honor Before Reason: She sticks around at Glomgold Industries despite Glomgold's self-destructive behavior. She seems aware of this at some level since in "The 87 Cent Solution" she lets it slip that her personal reputation is risk of being damaged because of Glomgold.
  • Hyper-Competent Sidekick: She seems to be much more efficient and capable than Glomgold in handling both his fortune and the company's public image. She even launches a joint-venture with Scrooge to bury the hatchet and holds her own in blocking Scrooge's haggling to reduce the charity from Dimes to Pennies, even when Scrooge was willing to cut to Nickles.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Her last name Owlson.
  • Loyal to the Position: She is not Glomgold's sidekick or assistant. She is the one actually running the company while Glomgold plots zany schemes. When he tries ordering her to do anything, she is quick to remind him he might be the C.E.O, but he is not her boss.
  • Only Sane Man: The only one who's able to keep Glomgold Industries afloat in spite of Glomgold himself. That said, he more or less built the company in the first place by himself...
    • She might be this for Duckburg's business people as a whole, given that she's the only one who questions the weirdness that seems to surround them.
  • The Owl-Knowing One: She's a competent businesswoman and an anthropomorphic owl.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Much to her dismay, she's been forced into being Glomgold's second-in-command when he returns. She pretty obviously hates having to put up with him and his grudge against Scrooge.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • In "Raiders of the Doomsday Vault!", she tears into Glomgold when he ruins a chance for a contract for yet another plot to beat Scrooge at their bet.
      Owlson: I don't work for you! I'm the only one who keeps you from ruining this company with your BRAINLESS PLOTS!!
    • She gives an even bigger one in "The Richest Duck in the World!" upon reaching her Rage Breaking Point.
      Owlson: ENOUGH! I was at the top of my class at Mouseton, ran several successful businesses, but none of that prepared me for you Duckburg billionaires! Reckless thrill-seekers! Madmen with the minds of children! Actual children! I tried to keep you people humble, but all you care about is money and power! Well, I'm DONE trying to make you better! I'm going to become a better billionaire myself! I QUIT!
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In "Raiders of the Doomsday Vault!", she gets so frustrated with Glomgold and his schemes that she flies back to Duckburg without him.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: "The Richest Duck in the World!" upon reaching her Rage Breaking Point in "The Richest Duck in the World!" she vents about how Duckburg's billionaires are either reckless thrill-seekers (Scrooge), insane man-children (Glomgold and Beaks), or ''actual'' children (Louie) who care more about money and power than using their resources to improve the world.
  • Take This Job and Shove It: She quits her job in "The Richest Duck in the World!" after getting fed up with the antics of the Duckburg billionaires. But she still stays long enough to train her replacement.
  • Token Good Teammate: The only employee at Glomgold Industries who isn't evil and genuinely wants to use the company as a force for good.
  • Women Are Wiser: Zan Owlson is arguably more reasonable and level-headed than any of the male C.E.O.s in the series, especially Glomgold and Beaks. She also fits into another stereotype.

A tough-looking individual that seems to have some history with Donald. Dewey and Webby believe him to be some kind of crook but he is actually Donald's Anger Management therapist.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In the Disney comics Jones is Donald's neighbor, has a similarly violent temper, and they have a very hostile relationship. Here, though his demeanor is still grumpy, Jones is Donald's therapist and their relationship appears professional.
  • Face of a Thug: Based on a threatening-sounding letter he sent to Donald and his intimidating appearance, Webby and Dewey assume him to be some kind of loan shark Donald owes money to. He's really just an anger management counselor demanding Donald pay him for his services.
  • Grumpy Bear: For someone specializing in anger management therapy he's quite irritable himself, though it's justified on the grounds that Donald has (apparently) been avoiding paying him for his sessions, during which he let Donald wreck a part of his office, and Dewey and Webby broke into his office due to mistaking him for a crook.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's rude and loud, but he is a therapist who actually helped Donald to turn his general anger problem into parental instinct.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He's a minor character but his significance comes from his reveal as Donald's counselor along with explaining the Decon-Recon Switch regarding his iconic anger and helping him transform into a Papa Wolf.

A robotic child that Mark Beaks built to pose as his son to get into Doofus Drake's party.


  • Artificial Family Member: Beaks created him to be his son—not for any paternalistic reasons, but simply for publicity.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Boyd is the sweetest child you can imagine, but if he experiences Tomato in the Mirror or his controls fall into the wrong hands, he becomes a force to be reckoned with.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He's shown on the poster for season 3 before his introduction in "Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake!", but his similarity to his creator made people think it was Beaks turned younger.
  • Expy: To Harvey Beaks. Both are young, sweet, and mild-mannered avians with oddly-shaped heads, large eyes, and polite dispositions towards everyone they meet. It helps that Boyd's original "father" has the name Beaks as a surname.
  • Eye Beams: He can shoot laser from his eyes.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Boyd's "name" is Beaks Optimistic Youth Droid. It's not too surprising, since Mark Beaks likes his acronyms.
  • Happily Adopted: By the Drakes at the end of his debut episode.
  • Killer Robot: After Louie reminds him that he's a robot and tries to fry his circuits with a Logic Bomb, Boyd starts running around in a panic shooting Eye Beams. Doofus then activates Boyd's "kill" mode to make him try and kill Louie.
  • Logic Bomb: Louie hits him with one to reveal to Doofus that he's a robot.
  • Nice Guy: Despite being created by Mark Beaks, Boyd can be considered one of the kindest characters on the show. He politely greets Louie, apologizes to him and Goldie when Mark makes him shove them out of Doofus' pool, and immediately refers to Mr. and Mrs. Drake as his parents once Louie changes his settings and transfers half of Doofus's inheritance into his own account, giving the Drakes the motivation they need to finally stand up to their bratty son. As long as his "Kill" mode is not activated.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Or rather, Ridiculously Bird Robot. He looks just like any other kid, and Louie only realizes he's a robot when he connects to Boyd's wifi signal.
  • Robot Kid: Yep. Built by Mark Beaks to be his son.
