"You kids are nothing but trouble...curse me kilts, have I missed trouble!"
Voiced By: David Tennant

"I'm Scrooge McDuck! I made my name by being tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties! And I made my money square!"

Duckburg's (and the world's) richest duck. Once a world famous adventurer Scrooge has seemingly retired, but the arrival of his nephew Donald and great-nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie has resparked his old ambitions.


  • The Ace: Not only the richest duck in the world but with a host of famous accomplishments and discoveries under his belt. The triplets are all very excited to meet him for varying reasons. His Ace-ness is such that Zeus, king of the gods, threw a tantrum and banished him from Ithaquack because he felt inferior to Scrooge. Goldie puts him in various tight situations she fully expects him to be able to get out of because, "You're Scrooge McDuck".
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: The Spear of Selene incident which both estranged him from Donald and led him to give up adventuring for a decade.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Much like the original cartoon, Scrooge's greedy miser persona and more immoral qualities are noticeably toned down here:
    • In the original comics, he became estranged from his family because he became too greedy and ruthless — before the events of "Christmas on Bear Mountain", Donald had only met Scrooge once before as a child — the day he severed ties with Hortense and Matilda. Here it's implied he never became that greedy note  as he seems to have been on good terms with his family especially Donald .... before the Spear of Selene.
    • At the end of the pilot, Scrooge brings back The Jewel of Atlantis, which he offers as a source of clean energy to power all of Duckburg for the next fifty years, provided they sign up with McDuck Water and Electric. This establishes Scrooge, while still vain and money-minded, as interested in cultivating a philanthropic public image, which he otherwise never attempted to do before.
    • Likewise, in The Great Dime Chase, Scrooge defends his employees against a board of directors who want to lay them off for better corporate management and downsizing. Scrooge in the comics tended to be shown as an exploitative boss who hired cheap because he could get them to do dangerous jobs for little pay and zero insurance (and his bringing along his family for adventures was often little more than press-ganging them as cheap free labour as it was for family bonding), but his defending his employees (who are made eccentric and more or less unemployable in anybody else's eyes) makes him come off as a Benevolent Boss.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: He loves exploring ancient ruins to find treasure.
  • Affluent Ascetic: "I'm Scrooge McDuck! I don't spend one PENNY more than I need to!" Accepting his standard of "need" (which includes protections against magic antagonists and travel to the most distant parts of the globe), he speaks the 100% truth.
  • Back in the Saddle: He stopped his adventuring sometime before the series starts, but the triplets galvanize him into deciding to get back into the action. He might be old, but that doesn't stop him from being a skilled adventurer.
  • Badass Boast: "You grab a club from a Scotsman's hands, you best be prepared to knock him out with it!" The fact that it's Dewey he's yelling it at makes it a bit tougher to listen to, but still.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: He and Goldie have a love-hate relationship with each other. They are mutually attracted to each other, but Goldie is more than willing to trick Scrooge to get the treasure all for herself, and Scrooge is not easily tricked.
  • Benevolent Boss: Despite being grumpy he's a rather nice boss despite his employees' many faults and wouldn't hear twice about firing them even if it meant saving costs by downsizing his company (i.e Scrooge won't lay off his employees):
    • He keeps Launchpad despite the fact he's a horrible driver — and once paid for his hospital bill when he ate too many hotdogs. We later find that he actually admires Launchpad for being as crazy and dangerous as he is, this fondness being great enough apparently for him to overlook and even sometimes pay for Launchpad's accidents.
    • Gyro is very brilliant but also very rude to just about everyone — but Scrooge's reaction is to just gently remind to be polite to others.
    • He was such a great boss to his late butler, Duckworth that he eventually came back as a ghost just to serve him.
    • To Fenton, he pays for his hospital bill without even knowing him and shows him more respect and encouragement than Gyro ever did.
  • Berserk Button: He has several:
    • Don't tell him he "used to be a big deal".
    • Never insinuate he's uncaring towards his family. Louie telling him the above just annoyed him, Dewey telling him the latter enraged him.
    • Trying to blame him for the Spear of Selene isn't a good idea either.
      • Della Duck. He's effectively unpersoned her by hiding every picture of her and belonging she had hidden away in a secret room in his archives. According to Webby, some junkmail for her showed up at the mansion, so Scrooge bought the post office and arranged it so the unlucky post man never came again. The fact she stole the Spear of Selene might have something to do with it.
    • He has zero tolerance for laziness and mooching — Louie found that out first-hand.
    • Question his business expenses or the necessity of his staff? He will go into very angry rants on why they are necessary.
    • Do not suggest that he made his fortune by any other means than hard work.
    • Don't take a golf club out of his hands unless you are prepared to knock him out with it!
    • He's a very proud Scotsman so don't you dare get the country mixed up with Ireland.
    • He hates all types of magic as he sees the supernatural as shortcut to success.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": Scrooge uses a nonverbal one where he strikes his cane to make a gavel-like boom. It's usually a sign that he's on his last good nerve.
  • Birthday Hater: Scrooge is a Downplayed example; he's doesn't hate his birthday, but he doesn't like people celebrating the fact that he's older than everyone he knows. He prefers that everybody leaves him alone so he can spend the day doing absolutely nothing.
  • Boring, but Practical: While he's still got a number of fancy maneuvers, he prefers to avoid unnecessary road bumps and complications on his expeditions, such as trying to go around three dangerous locations on the journey to Atlantis. Given that one of his mantras is "Work smarter, not harder," this isn't necessarily a surprise.
    • Applies to those he employs and why keeps them around, as he admits out to his board that many of his most trusted employees are probably all nuts, and getting rid of them is probably way worse than just keeping them on payroll, and by proxy, making sure Scrooge is keeping an eye on them.
  • Brave Scot: You can't become a capitalist adventurer without this trope.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Apparently the only reason he can dive into his money bin without hitting the surface as though it were the ground is because he spent years upping his muscle strength and dexterity. It's a power unique to him (and one he's famous for in-universe, for that matter), while all other characters follow normal physics and must walk on it or, as in the case of Louie, very laboriously trudge through it.
  • Collector of the Strange: He has amassed a lot of artifacts in his years of adventuring before the Triplets arrive. Setting off the spooky artifacts in his garage drives most of the action of the first half of the pilot.
  • Cool Old Guy: Switches between this and Grumpy Old Man, depending on the circumstances. But, as this trope, he's an experienced explorer who takes the four main children on daring adventures. He also takes a shine towards hiring a bunch of lunatics and eccentrics.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He spends a lot of money on magical defenses:
    Scrooge McDuck: Do you have any idea how many vengeance curses I have on my head?
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His main colors are red and black, which is mostly a color used by villains, but Scrooge is more of a noble person who cares for his family.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Being the most experienced member of the cast, he has his moments.
  • Defrosting Ice King: He's very grumpy and antisocial in the first half of the premiere. He cheers up considerably during the second half.
  • Desecrating the Dead: He did this sort of thing to Mallardy's Skeleton in "The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest!", only for Huey to call him out on it.
  • Do Wrong, Right: After the kids inadvertently awaken several ancient evils and almost get him killed twice, Scrooge concludes that the kids are nothing but trouble... and boy has he missed trouble. He then figures that he should teach them how to get into trouble properly, and invites them in on his adventures.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: In "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest!", he reveals that after failing to climb up to the summit of Mount Neverrest, he got the humiliating nickname "Neverrest Ninny". Although nobody knows that the Ninny is the same person as the richest duck in the world, Scrooge still thinks he can Never Live It Down unless he can actually climb the mountain.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Two moments in "Woo-oo!".
    • The triplets gush about the many past exploits of "the most exciting duck of all time!" followed by a Description Cut of Scrooge himself looking bored to death at a tedious business meeting regarding the actual running of his corporate empire, showing that while Scrooge is a self-made trillionaire, he doesn't enjoy the actual business of making money as much as he enjoys adventuring. Yet, he's retired from and dearly misses his adventuring days.
    • After He's Back, he defeats a ghost pirate that the kids accidentally released in less than a minute.
      Scrooge: Oi beastie! What's it gonna take to shuffle you off to the afterlife?
      Ghost Pirate: The head of Scrooge McDuck!
      Scrooge: [in a tone that just screams Bring It] Would you settle for his hat?
    • Dragging Louie off to show him the value of a hard day's work as well as explaining exactly why he can spend his money as he pleases but Louie needs to earn his keep in "The Great Dime Chase" shows that he has a deep set hatred towards moochers, layabouts, and those who try to get something for nothing. It gets further cemented in his frosty interactions with Gladstone, who rides through life due to being Born Lucky without having to work for anything or better himself.
  • Experienced Protagonist: He's already a master explorer by the time the story starts.
  • Fatal Flaw: His pride. It's nearly cost him twice so far His bravado to succeed in The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest almost gets him, Huey, Dewey, and Webby killed, while The Missing Links of Moorshire has it almost ruin their chances at escaping being turned to stone.
  • Gentleman Adventurer: Well, "Adventure Capitalist" since he's a Self-Made Man, but the trope still applies since he's extremely wealthy and could live in wealth and luxury if he wanted to, but he prefers to be In Harm's Way.
  • Greed: Actually downplayed despite it being one his most defining traits — at most it's played for laughs. His Xanadu-like mansion would've been considered a frivolous waste by his comic counterpart. Perhaps a case of Society Marches On ever since 2008 when the Great Recession hit and income inequality became a hot button issue.
  • Grumpy Bear: Before the triplets come to his life, he was pretty much what you'd expect from someone named Scrooge. At the end of "Woo-Oo!", he's back to his adventurous - if not reckless - positive self.
  • Guile Hero: While he's certainly quite capable physically, Scrooge knows this is of limited usefulness against many of the supernatural foes he faces. Yet he tends to handle them just as confidently and competently, with his wealth of knowledge expertly working out various means to negate their abilities or even make them defeat themselves. It helps that many such beings are prone to making deals, taking on challenges, etc. that Scrooge can take advantage of.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: He prides himself on making his fortune square, unlike Glomgold. At the end of the pilot, he offers the Jewel of Atlantis as a clean source of renewable energy for Duckburg on behalf of his company.
  • Honorary Uncle: Becomes one to Webby at the end of "From the Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22!".
  • I Own This Town: He has the deed to the land on which the city of Duckburg rests. He leases it out to the town for a tidy profit. The Beagle Boys hate him for this because they claim he stole the deed from Grandpa Beagle (albeit Grandpa Beagle had stolen it himself).
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's not the nicest guy even to people he likes. For a man who claims that "family is nothing but trouble" he'll do anything to protect them when they're in danger.
  • Lonely at the Top: He's the richest duck in the world but he's unmarried and childless at an age when he should be surrounded by grandkids. His only family is his estranged nephew and his grand-nephews with whom he has no contact until the start of the series.
  • Made of Iron: Honestly, Uncle Scrooge would have been dead by the time "Woo-Oo!" was halfway through were it not for this trope.
    Scrooge: [clutching onto Flying Dragon's back] HA HA~~!! It'll take more than some fancy flyin' to shake ol' Scrooge you cash cannibal!
    [Dragon CRASHES through multiple buildings]
    Scrooge: [covered in cuts, contusions and dishevelled feathers] Wheeze.... It'll take more than a... bruised spine to shake ol' Scrooge.... ye... bad dragon dog ye!
  • Mess of Woe: His mansion and especially his garage have this element before the triplets get him back in action; jewels are lying in an apple bowl, rooms lie empty while vast treasures rest in his garage, and a general air of sadness pervades the mansion until the kids start to help clean up.
  • Nice Guy: During more calm situations, he's shown to be a pretty level-headed and pleasant guy to be around, and is quite friendly to others. He's even heroic in his own way, saving the lives of the assassins who tried to murder him and his family, albeit with some hesitation.
  • Nice Hat: Like previous adaptations, Scrooge wears his black top hat.
    • Back in the 60s he also wore a bowler.
  • No Hero to His Valet:
    • Both Mrs. Beakley and Donald have known the real Scrooge, who in addition to being a rich, hard-working, intelligent man, is also exploitative, insensitive, and demanding. That said, they know he has a noble side to him.
      Mrs. Beakley: [to Webby] Dear, you are safer in a sunken city with Scrooge McDuck than you are locked in a vault in Fort Knox.
    • Subverted with Launchpad. Scrooge can be pretty horrible to him, and ignores everything he says, but Launchpad, being Launchpad, never notices.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • Apparently he's been part of more than one rebellion if "The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra!" is any indication.
    Scrooge: This is the dumbest rebellion I have ever been part of.
    • In "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest!", he implies he had some kind of incident with Santa Claus.
    Scrooge: That man is not allowed in my house! He knows what he did.
    • Also in "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest!", it appears that a lot of people die cursing Scrooge's name.
    Scrooge: If I had a nickel for every person who cursed me with their dying breath, I'd be twice as rich as I already am.
  • Not So Different: Scrooge and Donald do not get along, but both of them have one thing in common - they loathe Gladstone's very existence because while Scrooge has earned every penny and Donald's had a rough go of life, Gladstone just glides through life doing bugger all and getting everything.
  • Older Than They Look: In "The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest", Scrooge states that he first attempted to ascend the summit 75 years prior, just after he'd earned his first million dollars. This would conservatively put Scrooge's age in this continuity as somewhere in his 90s or 100s. Then we learn that his backstory of being part of the Klondike Gold rush is still in continuity, which took place in the 1890s. He and Goldie explicitly say their time trapped in a glacier was a hundred years ago. Turns out he spent some time in a "timeless demon dimension", which slowed down his aging.
  • Papa Wolf: It would be unwise to harm the triplets, Donald, and Webby in front of him.
  • Parents as People: He does love the kids, is very protective, and is adamant that even though they live in mansion they learn the value of hard work and not act like spoiled brats. That said he's still new to being a guardian so he's still learning the ropes — and his Pride does cloud his judgement on occasion.
  • Parental Substitute: It's implied Scrooge was like a father figure for both Donald and Della.
  • Phrase-Catcher: "Curse you, McDuck!" He's apparently heard it so often that he claims if he had a nickel for each one he'd be twice as rich as he already is.
  • Pooled Funds: Naturally; Scrooge diving into his money bin is the page pic for this trope. The trope has been exploited in the pilot where he survives a hundred-meter fall by landing in gold coins, as well as deconstructed in "The Great Dime Chase", where he tells Louie that the only reason why he can do it is a lot of exercise - anyone else trying it would end up with a cracked skull.
  • Pride: Well you don't get to become the Richest Duck in the World by settling for second place. From the very first episode, it's obvious Scrooge's pride is a driving force in his ambitions. Being told by Louie he "used to be big deal" in the pilot breaks him out of his funk and drives him to go adventuring again. It's also his Fatal Flaw as he hates being second best, and his attempts to prove otherwise nearly doom the kids and himself in "The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest!" and "The Missing Links of Moorshire!" Luckily he snaps out of it in the nick of time.
  • Rags to Riches: Clan McDuck had been wealthy in the past, but had long fallen into poverty by the time Scrooge was born. Scrooge then took it upon himself to become the Richest Duck in the World through cunning, determination, and hard work.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Inverted. Scrooge's main outfit is a red suit with some black in it, a black top hat, black spats, and carries around a black cane. But, he's one of the main heroes.
  • Red Is Heroic: As in the original comics, his outfit is red.
  • Retired Badass: Back in the 1960s he became a freelance spy and Mrs. Beakley was his partner.
  • Rich Boredom: When he's not adventuring, his life is shown to be this. The actual, tedious business of running his corporate empire is shown to bore him to tears, and his life in McDuck Manor is one of isolation and loneliness.
  • Scotireland: Averted, and the trope is a Berserk Button for him. In "Jaw$!" Roxanne Featherley deliberately asks him what part of Ireland he's from to anger him.
  • Screw Destiny: While Scrooge has a lot of vengeance curses on his head, none of them have come to pass since he spends a lot on magical defenses.
  • The Scrooge: Downplayed and played for laughs. He uses a flip-phone while everyone (even the perpetually unemployed Donald) uses more expensive smartphones. (That being said, it's still a golden flip-phone.) His idea of a "gift" for the triplets is a bag of marbles that they have to return when they leave (He's counted them). He also uses a Promethean Candle rather than buy new candles for birthday cakes each year. This is in direct contrast to the original series, where the first episode spent a good five minutes showcasing how cheap Scrooge was.
    • "The Great Dime Chase" has Scrooge's Board of Directors actually deconstruct just how much Scrooge isn't The Scrooge, given that despite his cheapness in many things he actually spends a lot of money and resources on some things that he doesn't really have to. He also gives a speech to Louie when the latter gets a little too comfortable in Scrooge's mansion that he can spend money because he's earned it and appreciates the effort that went into acquiring it, while Louie hasn't.
    • Later episodes, however, such as Jaw$ , make it clear Scrooge still loathes preventable money loss, to the point of having a near nervous breakdown when some of his bin's money gets out on the streets. Later on it's even established he uses the same teabag for an entire month so he can "taste the savings".
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Or at least speaks bear, as he easily communicates with one he tamed.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: As seen in this family picture, Scrooge looks a lot like his father.
  • The Three Faces of Adam: Is the Prophet part of the equation, with Dewey as the Hunter, and Donald as the Lord.
  • Thrifty Scot: The thrifty Scot.
  • Thrill Seeker: His most defining trait in this continuity. The hum drums of running a financial empire bores him to death, but the kids' efforts to stop and save him from the dragon give him a new lease of life. Donald, however, does not approve, calling his uncle a "crazy old man" who "only cares about his next adventure". That said Scrooge does not believe in putting himself or others in unnecessary danger if it can be avoided.
  • Trade Your Passion for Glory: He's a great adventurer and a wealthy businessman but it's clear that being an adventurer is what he most enjoys doing and in "Woo-Oo!" he's totally silent and glum on hearing from his Board of Directors that he should downsize the parts of the company dedicated to historical research and making experimental equipment (such as the submarine he and Launchpad use to find Atlantis).
  • Violent Glaswegian: He's from Glasgow and you do not want to mess with him.
  • Weapon of Choice: His hooked cane, much like in the original show and comics. Scrooge is shown able to walk perfectly fine without it and it seems to be more accessory than need. In a fight, you can bet he will be putting the cane to use in kicking butt.

    Donald Duck 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/donald_5.jpg
"Can I trust you to watch the boys without losing them?"
Voiced By: Tony Anselmo

A once great adventurer turned single parent whose need for a job is constantly weighed down by his worry for his nephews and their mischief.


  • Accidental Hero: Once bent down to pick up 20 dollars ahead of his cousin Gladstone, only to accidentally trip an escaping Beagle Boy, ending their robbery.
  • Action Dad: Downplayed. He's the triplet's maternal uncle and Parental Substitute, but is also an experienced adventurer who is not afraid to fight.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Probably one of the least selfish interpretations of the character. Even in the context of the original comics, he's now an overprotective father-figure instead of an abusive parent with anger issues. The same goes with his counterpart in the original series.
  • Adaptation Distillation: He's recognizable as the Donald of the classic cartoons, complete with fighting stance, irritability, and being a Perpetual Frowner but he also retains many of the more noble qualities from Carl Barks' stories.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Look at the original Duck Tales character page, and you might find a reference to him. Now look which page Donald is on for this series...
  • Alliterative Name: Donald Duck.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Some family pictures in his phone imply this, particularly one of them at the "Grand Canyon... display at the grocery store." Said picture involves Donald cheerfully climbing on the display, with the boys looking embarrassed to be seen in public with him.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin: It's implied that he cut off ties with Scrooge because of what happened to his twin sister, Della Duck, in an incident involving the Spear of Selene.
  • Ascended Extra: He's the most common Absentee Actor in the main cast, but he seems set to make more appearances than he did in the original TV series. He figures prominently in the Title Sequence, and his sister's disappearance has been set up to be one of the show's central mysteries. One promo quite literally puts him front and center.
  • Badass Boast: His "I ANSWER TO NO ONE!!!!!!", particularly since it was said to the extremely badass Mrs. Beakley.
  • The Berserker: When Donald becomes truly angry he becomes an unstoppable force of nature, and even obstacles meant to stop him aren't safe from him when it happens.
  • Born Unlucky: Donald seems to exemplify Finagle's Law, to the point of being a Butt-Monkey. In "The House of the Lucky Gander" Scrooge weaponizes his luck by tricking Liu Hai, the spirit of luck and fortune, a luck vampire, to feed on Donald. Three seconds later, Liu Hai is drained and defeated because Donald is that unlucky.
  • Butt-Monkey: As with any continuity Donald's luck just causes him more and more trouble, which is only worsened by his short fuse. It's also deconstructed, showing that Donald's bad luck and temper keep him from holding a steady job that can keep the boys safe, and it makes him an overprotective parent because he knows all the sorts of things that can happen to someone with his misfortune. The only time it seems to fade away is when he's doing dangerous adventuring, and when he's trying to protect someone else. Even so, bad things happen to him A LOT.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He fights dirty when taking down two of the Beagle Boys when them kidnapping the triplets caused him to go into an Unstoppable Rage.
  • Complexity Addiction: A consequence of his bad luck and his bad temper is he makes stuff too complicated for himself, as evidenced by his adjustment with Beakley in his first week at Scrooge's. The gag where he orders a battery of generators to power his houseboat as it floats on a swimming pool is classic Donald.
  • Composite Character: Has a few traits of the previous version of Fenton Crackshell, being a little bit bumbling and, as detailed in the pilot's deleted scene, a wannabe accountant.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He really is every bit the hair-trigger, neurotically overprotective, and bumbling surrogate parental figure the triplets see him as. That doesn't keep him from being the badass and quick-witted adventurer that Webby knows him as when the time calls for it. He switches easily between the classic animated Donald and the comic book Donald sometimes mid-scene.
    • Demonstrated best in "Day Trip of Doom!" After spending the whole day alternating between annoying Beakley and causing himself pain, he and Beakley need to team up against the Beagle Boys. While Beakley makes a plan to take on Bouncer herself and hopes Donald is tough enough to keep Burger busy, Donald goes old-school angry and beats the tar out of both of them.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Donald's perpetual bad luck streak is this once you realize that, in contrast to Gladstone, it has likely played a large part in making Donald the Made of Iron Determinator he is today.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Donald wear a black sailor suit, the same one he wore in the comics. He's also a Good Parent to his nephews and is a (relatively) Nice Guy.
  • Determinator: As is clear in The House of the Lucky Gander Donald simply doesn't give up, no matter how much he wants to, though it helped that Louie got him to weaponize his Uncontrollable Rage and against a giant pachinko machine turn Donald into The Juggernaut.
    Louie: [to Donald] You never had the common sense to give up before, why start now?
  • Doting Parent: He still keeps baby pictures of the nephews on his phone.
  • Do Wrong, Right: As part of his cover as one of Glomgold's minions, he justifies preventing the deaths of the protagonists by saying "if they're dead now, they can't be tortured later."
    • At the end of the pilot he concedes that the boys will get into trouble no matter what he does, so he asks Scrooge to teach them how to get out of trouble.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Raised triplets for ten years entirely on his own, and they still think Uncle Scrooge (who didn't pay them a visit or give them birthday presents) and Uncle Gladstone (who is "the worst") are cooler than him (although the kids do eventually realize that Gladstone isn't a good person). Or at least that's how he feels sometimes, since the boys do love and admire him, especially Huey. (At the end of "The House of the Lucky Gander" the boys and Webby all hug Donald, who'd gone through the Mother of all Unlucky Days.)
  • Establishing Character Moment: In "Woo-Oo!", Donald is first seen having his uniform forcibly taken off by Louie who put his uniform into the garbage disposal and the sleeve catches on fire from the oven that Huey is on, and Donald tells Huey to get off the stove citing it's off and getting slapped in the face by his sleeve while putting out the fire. And when Huey accidentally nailed his uncle in the head with the ironing board, Donald engages in his trademark angry noises... before immediately telling Huey and Louie to put on their life-vests, lest the houseboat somehow sinks while the babysitter is there; this scene shows Donald is still the same Butt-Monkey with his classic Hair-Trigger Temper, but also an overprotective guardian to his nephews.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Already a skilled adventurer before the series begins. Of course, due to him being a Retired Badass, the triplets had no idea until the pilot.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Word of God says he spends most of time trying to fix his houseboat so he can move the boys out of the mansion. However, Donald being Donald means the houseboat often sustains damage thereby nullifying Donald's efforts.
  • Good Parents: Despite being way too overprotective, it's made very clear that Donald loves his nephews as if they were his own sons and his main concern is finding a stable and steady job to support them.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Wouldn't be Donald Duck without his famous temper. Which then leads to another standard of Donald's, Unstoppable Rage. When you REALLY get him good and mad, he has Power Born of Madness (of the "I'm angry" variety instead of the "I'm insane" one).
    • Against two Beagle Boys a Raging Donald became The Berserker and impressed Beakley by taking them down single-handedly during his rage.
    • When Louie gives a rousing speech to fire Donald up (as his bad luck that day got so horrific in a race against Gladstone where he was ready to give up), he channels the Rage to become The Determinator and power through the obstacles Liu Hai put in his path. One Donald-Shout dispels a jade tiger illusion while he powers through a giant pachinko machine in a Wall Run and even breaks through some of the parts on his way to win.
  • Heartbroken Badass: We don't know what happened to Della, but whatever it was, it broke Donald and made him swear off adventuring for good.
    Storkules: But getting hurt is part of the adventure! What would fierce Della say if she could hear you now?
    Donald: Well, she can't! Someone always gets hurt.
  • Hidden Depths: The position Donald was applying for at Glomgold Industries was an accountant. According to Word of God, there's a scrapped scene where he states that he became accredited via an internet college.
  • High-Pressure Emotion: A clear sign that Donald's rage levels have gone from angry to furious is when his head turns red, usually accompanied by the sound of a whistling kettle.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: He has no desire to go back to adventuring and just wants a normal stable job to support his nephews. Unfortunately for him, living with Scrooge kind of puts a damper on that.
  • It Runs in the Family: Both his skills as an adventurer, and his explosive strength when he is really angry, are seen from Scrooge himself in The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, meaning Donald takes after his Uncle's side of the family.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • In the first issue of the tie-in comic Donald loses his temper and runs his tour boat aground when he attacks a customer. However, it's hard to hold it against him because said customer tries to take over as a tour guide, even knocking Donald out of the way to start steering.
    • In "Woo-Oo!", Donald calls out Scrooge for taking the boys on a dangerous adventure when he, Scrooge and Dewey are trapped in a rapidly flooding room in Atlantis. He's completely correct; while the boys may be more capable than Donald thinks they are, Scrooge had promised to keep them safe for a couple of hours.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Overbearing and hot-tempered, but he is devoted to his nephews and is a pretty decent fellow.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: While he may get hurt, Donald will leap into action if someone or something threatens his nephews. Best shown in the pilot when he uses a shield to protect an impulsive Dewey from a booby trap in Atlantis.
  • Made of Iron: In the climax of The House of the Lucky Gander, Donald charges headlong through the bars of a giant pachinko machine. Straight up. They don't even slow him down (though it does seem to hurt him some).
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Donald has a small build, but that doesn't stop him from taking on, and taking out, much larger opponents. Especially if they menace his family.
  • My Beloved Smother: A rare male example. Donald is super safety conscious when it comes to the boys, to the point he won't even let them walk around the houseboat without a life vest.
  • My Greatest Failure: Donald's conversation with Storkules paints Della's loss this way.
  • Nephewism: It is implied that Scrooge was like a father to Donald and his sister Della growing up. The fact that their parents passed away many years ago likely had something to do with it.
  • Nervous Wreck: Being chronically unemployed and raising three highly adventurous and mischievous kids has taken its toll on the poor guy.
  • Nice Hat: His sailor hat.
  • Noodle Incident: At one point he and Scrooge start arguing about an incident with the "Spear of Selene."
  • Out of Focus: He's technically a main character, but he doesn't show up much only making scattered appearances so far after the premiere. This is justified in a way since Donald hates adventuring after what happened to Della, but since he's such a worry-wort you'd except him to tag along more. Even as he does show up more in the season's second half it's often only for very brief throwaway gags that have no importance on the plot. Word of God eventually explained that the reason he's frequently absent is that he's been trying to repair the houseboat so he and the nephews can move back to the marina.
  • Pals with Jesus: Storkules, a Greek demigod, considers him as his best friend.
  • Papa Wolf: Wherever his three nephews are concerned.
    • In the theme song, while Scrooge is driving the family through a raging storm, he shoves a life jacket onto the three of them before pirates abduct him.
    • In "Woo-Oo!" when he, Dewey, and Scrooge are stuck in flooding treasure room, Donald starts trying to plug leaks all the leaks he can (and gets stuck in one) while Dewey is sitting on a floating chest. Donald doesn't stop or even try to free himself until Dewey convinces him that they're better off letting the room flood. Donald's willing to drown if it means buying Dewey a little more time.
    • In "Daytrip of Doom," the second he learns that the Beagle Boys have taken the nephews hostage in an attempt to ransom them, he flies into Unstoppable Rage and attacks Burger and Bouncer, both of whom are larger, and Bouncer clearly more muscular. They fail to stand a chance against him.
  • Parental Substitute: He's the triplets' Uncle, but may as well be a Single Dad as far as all four of them are concerned.
  • Retired Badass: Even more so than Scrooge, who still exhibits trinkets and trophies from his adventuring days. Donald has no such relics and never told his nephews about his past as "one of the most daring adventurers of all time", and as bad as his present life is, doesn't seem to miss it. "The Spear of Selene!" has him outright say that he no longer wants to adventure and that he doesn't want to be a hero.
  • Role Reprisal: Tony Anselmo is once again voicing Donald, after having inherited the role over 30 years ago.
  • Screaming Warrior: Whenever he decides "Let's Get Dangerous!," he goes into an Unstoppable Rage. When he goes into said Unstoppable Rage, a good indicator is him screaming his lungs out. Up to Eleven when he was so freaking pissed that he screamed a spectral tiger out of existence.
  • The Three Faces of Adam: Is the Lord part of the equation, with Dewey as the Hunter, and Scrooge as the Prophet.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: The flashback to Donald as a little boy in "The House of Lucky Gander" shows him greatly resembling the triplets at their age. Of course, the triplets are the children of his own twin sister.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Storkules. He considers Donald to be his best friend, but, at least until the end of Storkules's introduction, Donald considers him an acquaintance at best.
  • Vocal Evolution: Donald's voice is a lot more comprehensible this time around. The original DuckTales was made only three years into Tony Anselmo's tenure as Donald, so he was still new to the voice and hadn't quite found his footing with it. Thirty years later, and Anselmo's Donald has long since come into its own.
  • World's Best Warrior: Webby holds him on a pedestal as one of the most daring adventurers in the world.

    Hubert "Huey" Duck

"Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, you truly have the answer for everything!"
Voiced By: Danny Pudi

The oldest and most responsible triplet. Tends to be very 'by the book'. Granted, the book in question is the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, but he can get very uncomfortable when a situation goes too far outside what is familiar and known to him.

He likes red.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy:
    • In the previous adaptation, while Huey and his brothers did care for Webby, they also treated her as an Annoying Younger Sibling and hated spending time with her just because she was a girl and had feminine interests. Here, he and his brothers treat her with respect and enjoy her companionship with no problems with her gender.
    • He's also nicer in general. Usually when the triplets are portrayed with different personalities, Huey is often the reckless, sometimes selfish, hot-headed one. Here, he's the voice of reason, and seems to have more of a Big Brother Instinct to his younger brothers. Plus, he's more polite and mild-mannered.
  • Adorkable: Both Dewey and Louie consider him to be a nerd and for good reason. He's passionate about "nerd stuff" like geology and history and becomes utterly giddy during the submarine ride when he brings snacks, a collection of sea shanties and T-shirts.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: In "Terror of the Terra-firmians!", Huey doesn't believe that the title creatures exist, despite all the unbelievable things he sees when adventuring. Webby calls him out on this. This is actually foreshadowed in the pilot, where he gushes about Scrooge finding out the Chubacabra was just a shaved bear, implying he believes all of the supernatural and mystic to have a logical explanation.
  • Bad Liar: Going with his more upstanding personality he is shown to be a very bad liar, almost as bad as Webby.
    Donald: [suspiciously] Where's Dewey?
    Louie: Sleeping!
    Huey: Who's Dewey?
  • Berserk Button: Although he's nice and mild-mannered most of the time, Mark Beaks first choosing him over Dewey as an intern, but then employing Dewey as his superior breaks his patience and sends him into a rage fit not unlike his Uncle Donald tends to throw.
  • Big Brother Instinct: With being the Team Dad, Huey looks out for Dewey, Louie, and Webby.
  • Character Exaggeration: Of the triplets, he's the one whose character most resembles their shared personality in the comics, particularly Don Rosa's interpretation of them: he's an upbeat, helpful and generally morally-upstanding guy (who nevertheless isn't above the occasional delve into mischief), he's a clear Smart Guy who values knowledge, history, and research, and he's a dedicated and hyper-resourceful Junior Woodchuck. However, compared to the Nephews' comic counterparts, these traits have been exaggerated to comical and Adorkable extremes.
  • Character Tics: Huey tends to clench his fists/arms together.
  • Child Prodigy: Thanks to the JWG and his scout activities, Huey's become quite proficient in a number of fields from customer service to battlefield tactics to trapping to even advanced robotics!
  • Color-Coded Characters: With his brothers and Webby; Huey is associated with red.
  • Control Freak: His main negative quality is that he wants everything done his way and gets angered whenever his brothers don't blindly follow his orders. Best shown in "McMystery at McDuck Manor" when he bosses them around during the party and "Day of the Only Child!" where his main complaint about the holiday is that it prevents him from forcing them to participate in his Junior Woodchuck competition.
  • Determinator: "McMystery at McDuck McManor!" has him determined to throw Scrooge the perfect birthday party, despite it being clear that Scrooge doesn't want one. Louie points this out to him, but Huey won't stop until Scrooge enjoys himself.
  • Distressed Dude: At the climax of "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!".
  • The Dutiful Son: Downplayed. He's the most responsible of the triplets but will go along with their mischievous actions.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Hubert.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Two moments in "Woo-oo!".
    • Cooks Donald breakfast and starts to iron his suit for his job interview, showing how responsible and helpful he is. He's also involved with Dewey and Louie's plan to sneak off to Cape Suzette in the houseboat while Donald is away, demonstrating that he's not above getting mischievous. However, unlike Louie, he's not as good at covering his tracks about it.
    • During their gush about Scrooge's adventures in the beginning, each sibling shares what they've heard of his tales, and what they admire most about him. For Huey, it was Scrooge uncovering the truth about the Chubacabra, showing his admiration for wit and mysteries. It also foreshadows his Agent Scully behavior as he's quick to note the Chupacabra was just a shaved bear.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: He refuses to believe in Terra-Firmians because they're not in the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, but readily admits that most of the stuff they've encountered in the adventures they have with Scrooge aren't in the Guidebook either and has been adding entries for them himself.
  • Freudian Trio:
    • With his brothers, he plays the Superego to Louie's Id and Dewey's Ego, being the most responsible and academically smart.
    • In "Terror of the Terra-Firmians", he continues playing the Superego to Webby's Id and Lena's Ego.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Forms this with his brothers and Webby, he is the Melancholic (analytical and organized).
  • Great Big Book of Everything: The Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, and oh so very played with. Huey flat-out admits in Terror of the Terra-Firmians that if the guidebook lacks anything, he adds it personally.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite more or less being the Only Sane Man when in regards to his brothers and Webby, in "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!", it's revealed that Huey is deathly afraid of the unknown, hence his reliance on his Junior Woodchuck Guidebook.
  • Hypocritical Humor: He refuses to believe in anything that isn't in the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook, until he adds it there himself. Hilariously there are plans for a Sasquatch trap in the book.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Triplet ID Tag, in this case; he wears a red polo shirt and is the only one of the triplets to still wear a baseball cap.
  • Insufferable Genius: Downplayed in that he isn't a genius, but is rather book smart. In "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks", he scoffs at the idea of Dewey succeeding in the business world despite the series repeatedly demonstrating that Dewey can be quite clever.
  • It Runs in the Family:
    • Each of the siblings inherit a trait from Scrooge. Huey enjoys solving mysteries and uses intelligence above all else, much like Scrooge. He also has his work ethic, and sense of fairness. However, unlike Scrooge, Huey is shown to struggle with going with the flow and adapting to a situation when things don't go according to plan.
    • In "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks", he also shows some of his Uncle Donald's traits, namely his resentment about his Boring, but Practical work being taken for granted by his peers and loved ones, and when Dewey gets promoted by Mark Beaks for doing nothing, he dissolves into a meltdown of resentment-driven Unstoppable Rage that would probably make Donald both proud, worried, and guilty.
  • It's All About Me: Slips into this in "McMystery at McDuck Manor", where planning and running Scrooge's birthday party himself takes precedence over actually making sure that his great-uncle is happy.
  • Jerkass Ball: Grabs it in "McMystery at McDuck Manor", where he forces his great-uncle to attend a birthday party, even when it's clear Scrooge doesn't want to. His obsession with planning and doing things his way also irks his little brothers when he refuses to call either Beakley or the police for help when Scrooge is kidnapped.
  • The Leader: A per usual he's the leader of the nephews and Webby, due to being the oldest and his knack for quick thinking and organization.
  • Lethal Chef: Heavily implied in the pilot. His attempt at cooking Donald a big good-luck breakfast of fried egg and fish ends with the fish 'leaking' a rather unpleasant looking green substance and the egg yolk oozing over the whole thing. Donald, naturally, is not incredibly eager to eat it.
    • Justified as Donald is implied to not let the boys cook, and/or it was possibly deliberate with how quickly Huey threw away the breakfast he made that it was to shoo their uncle out for their plan.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: A prequel comic reveals that Huey's mother Della had an archaeologist side, and showed the same passion for knowledge and discoveries. He and his mom are also the eldest of their siblings.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Along with Louie. Dewey and Webby haven't told them anything about Della or their investigation into her disappearance.
  • Lovable Coward: Downplayed. While Huey is smart and usually brave, he can be crippled by fear of the unknown, as shown in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!".
  • Meaningful Name: Hubert means "bright mind" when translated from German. With his knowledge and optimism, Huey's mind is "bright" for two reasons.
  • Nephewism: Huey and his brothers have been raised and cared for by their Uncle Donald all of their lives.
  • Nice Guy: Huey is thoughtful, friendly, and sweet.
  • Nice Hat: He's the only one of the triplets who still wears a baseball cap (red, of course) as they did in the original series and other media.
  • Nice Mean And In Between: Of the triplets, Huey is the "Nice" one, as he is the most responsible and usually the first to point out a rash plan.
    • In notable circumstances, he can switch places with Dewey as being the "In-Between" guy.
      • "Daytrip of Doom!" has Huey and Louie both, at first, think Webby as being too socially awkward to join them on their trip. Dewey is the only one of the triplets who's willing to invite her to tag along.
      • "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!": After Mark Beaks is revealed as a fraud, Huey is all up for letting Falcon Graves toss the jerk off the building. Dewey is the one who says they have to intervene. Also, while not unjustified, Huey is revealed to have the most volatile temper of his brothers when pushed to breaking point.
      • In "Day of the Only Child", he opposes Only Child Day while Dewey and Louie (initially) support it. Huey's initial reason for opposing this is because he wants to force his brothers to partake in Junior Woodchuck activities (against their wishes), and then later complains that they don't blindly follow his orders. When the brothers reunite at the end of the episode, while grateful that they're back together again, Huey has also become more appreciative of his brothers' differences and individual preferences.
      • In "McMystery At McDuck McManor", Huey is definitely the mean one, forcing Scrooge to attend the birthday party that he planned out, while Louie is the in-between one, and Dewey is the nice one who follows whatever Huey and Louie ask of him.
  • Non-Action Guy: He and Louie are this, while Dewey and Webby are Action Heroes.
  • Not So Above It All: While Huey is much more responsible than his brothers and Webby, his own flaws have created problems during several episodes:
    • Huey's first Establishing Character Moment shows that he's still just as mischievous and scheming as Dewey and Louie.
    • "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!" reveals that he's the one who inherited his Uncle Donald's volatile temper.
    • His stubbornness and his It's All About Me attitude causes most of the problems that occur in "McMystery At McDuck McManor".
  • Nothing Is Scarier: His greatest fear is the unknown.
  • Only Sane Man: Out of all the triplets, his cautious and responsible nature results in him being the one most likely to play this role. However, several episodes prove that he's Not So Above It All. In "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest" he plays this to Scrooge as his quest to reach the frankly impossible summit nearly gets himself and the rest of the expedition killed.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Word of God has stated that this is as far as Huey (or, any of the triplets) will go with Webby. No Hugging, No Kissing, they'll be strictly friends only. Of the triplets, his relationship with Webby tends to stray into Vitriolic Best Buds territory, due to Huey being more practical and safety conscious.
  • Revenge Before Reason: After Mark Beaks is revealed as a fraud, Huey is content to just watch Falcon Graves toss the guy off a building. Dewey has to snap him out of this line of thinking.
  • Red Is Heroic: He's the unofficial leader of the triplets, and wears red.
  • Science Hero: To Dewey's Action Hero and Louie's Guile Hero. Huey admires his uncle Scrooge most for the scientific discoveries he made while adventuring.
  • Schedule Fanatic: Plans out an entire itinerary for the group's submarine voyage, which Dewey considers lame.
  • The Smart Guy: The most knowledgeable and resourceful of the triplets. He knows a lot about organization, general trivia, history (well good for a layman anyway) and science. His scientific knowledge proves useful in "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest" where he figures out the wormholes and the nature of the mountain.
  • “Stop Having Fun” Guy: When Dewey is enjoying the slides and such at the Waddle office, Huey admonishes him for having fun and insists that they're serious work tools that are there to help with worker productivity. Immediately followed by perhaps the flattest 'whee' ever uttered in television.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Justified. Huey shares a striking resemblance to his brothers because they are identical triplets.
  • Team Dad: When it just him, his brothers, and Webby, Huey tends to act as the surrogate father figure.
  • Token Good Teammate: Easily the nicest of the triplets and always willing to lend a hand. While he might not be as good as the other two at lying or getting into mischief, he is great at leading the way out.

    Dewford Deuteronomy "Dewey" Duck 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dewey.jpg
"That sounds like a challenge!"
Voiced By: Ben Schwartz

The middle child, and like any good middle child he is out to prove himself. Adventurous and reckless sums him up pretty well.

He likes blue.


  • Action Hero: To Huey's Science Hero and Louie's Guile Hero. Dewey admires his uncle Scrooge most for his brave acts of daring-do and is the most enthused about going on adventures with him.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In the previous adaptation, while Dewey and his brothers did care for Webby, they also treated her as an Annoying Younger Sibling and hated spending time with her just because she was a girl and had feminine interests. Here, he and his brothers treat her with respect and enjoy her companionship with no problems with her gender. Dewey especially takes a shine to Webby and insists on bringing her along to Funso's and later confides in Webby about his interest in his mother.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Played with. In the comics his name is Deuteronomy, which is his middle name here, and his first name replaced with Dewford. But everyone still calls him "Dewey" regardless.
  • Alliterative Name: Dewford Deuteronomy Duck. Also applies when using his more well-known nickname, "Dewey".
  • Birds of a Feather: Out of all the triplets, he's the closest with Webby due to their mutual love of adventure and conquering dangerous situations.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Wears blue and aspires to be a brave, daring adventurer like his great uncle.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Of a different stripe than Louie is. While Louie prefers minimal effort to get results or personal interest to take action, Dewey is naturally motivated but only if it's something he is passionate about. He shows dislike for things he finds tedious or boring and will opt for what he deems exciting over uninteresting if he doesn't just avoid it outright.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Nailed it!" Frequently used when he most definitely did not nail it.
  • Color-Coded Characters: With his brothers and Webby; Dewey's associated with blue. Lampshaded by both Scrooge and Lena when they first meet him as seen under Embarrassing Nickname.
  • Combat Pragmatist: In "The Spear of Selene!", he is able to fight toe-to-toe with Webby by using wits and slightly dirty tactics to even the odds against her.
  • Composite Character: He has a strong Intergenerational Friendship with Launchpad, much like Doofus Drake in the original cartoon.
  • Constantly Curious: Dewey has an eye for details and picking up cues, and is the one leading the mystery of what happened to his mother Della Duck.
  • Death Glare: Has a surprising tendency to throw out a lot of these.
  • Deuteragonist: Seems to be shaping up as this, being the most active triplet, having the most Character Development in the premiere (and is tied for most with Scrooge's Character Development as well), and kicks off the Myth Arc with his discovery during the Wham Shot. Downplayed a bit in later episodes, though he still probably gets the most screen-time overall out of the four kids and is the only character to appear in every episode (even though one of his appearances is just a silent cameo).
    Dewey: Classic Scrooge/Dewey banter. The seasoned-but-tired explorer Passing the Torch to his cocky young successor.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: According to Frank Angones, his full name is Dewford Deuteronomy Duck.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Both Scrooge and Lena call him "Bluey" the first time they meet him, highlighting how he's the overlooked middle child compared to the dutiful Huey and the laid-back Louie. And that's an improvement! Initially Scrooge just called him "the third one."
  • Establishing Character Moment: Two moments in "Woo-oo!".
    • In "Woo-Oo!", Dewey is introduced hot-wiring the family houseboat so he and his brothers can go for a joyride, showing his daring, adventurous personality. However, he neglects to make sure Donald has left first and consequently gets caught, which makes it apparent that he's too impulsive for his own good.
    • During their gush about Scrooge's adventures, each sibling shares what they've heard of his tales, and what they admire most about him. For Dewey, it was slaying a Rock Monster and carving a statue of himself out of its leg, demonstrating both his desire for physical adventure and his lust for glory.
  • Fearless Fool: In his thirst for adventure, and his intense desire to be noticed as an individual and not just one-of-three-brothers, he'll take any risk and rush headfirst into danger even after he's been explicitly and repeatedly told why this is a bad idea.
  • Freudian Trio: With his brothers, he plays the Ego to Louie's Id and Huey's Superego, being the most outgoing but also the most socially smart.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Forms this with his brothers and Webby, he is the Choleric (passionate and strong-willed).
  • Hidden Depths: So far he's the most sensitive and mature of the triplets.
    • He's also the most level-headed of his brothers when placed under pressure. Louie will break down in tears, while Huey would either be paralyzed with fear or lose himself in a fit of Uncle-Donald-like rage.
    • Dewey's social smarts and the ability to think on his feet are showcased most prominently in "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!", where it's he - and not Huey - who figures out Mark Beaks' Get Rich Quick Scheme.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Triplet ID tag in this case; he wears a blue T-shirt with a lighter blue long-sleeved shirt underneath. He also has a different hairstyle from his brothers, sticking up from the top of his head instead of the front.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Being the middle child of the triplets, Dewey is desperate to stand out. This is why he latches onto the idea of becoming Scrooge's "successor" in adventuring.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Launchpad. According to "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!", Launchpad sees him as his best friend. "Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System" expands on their relationship by showing the two hanging out and watching Launchpad's favorite TV show from when he was a kid and him telling Dewey all about passing his driver's test.
  • It Runs in the Family: Each of the siblings inherit a trait from Scrooge. What Dewey inherits is his addiction to adventure, and also his concern for his family. Not so much his caution and reason.
  • Jack of All Trades: As the middle child of the triplets, and the second oldest of the main kids, Dewey seems to have a strength shared with each of them, with his logical weaknesses being that he isn't necessarily a master at any of those crafts.
    • Like Huey, he has shown a surprising level of intelligence, relying on Sherlock Scan in the pilot and conducting his own private investigation (with assistance from Webby) to find information on his mother. In "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!" he points out logical fallacies in Launchpad's paranoid claims about mole monsters. But unlike his older brother, Dewey is a Book Dumb child who usually resorts to direct, impulsive action to get himself out of tight spots.
    • Like Louie, Dewey has shown a good deal of social savviness, as shown in "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!" where he figures out Mark Beaks' Xanatos Gambit. In "The Great Dime Chase!", Dewey also shows an apt ability to think on his feet. Unlike Louie, however, Dewey is too reckless to be a Guile Hero.
    • Like Webby, Dewey is a courageous Action Hero who has no problem jumping straight into any (usually dangerous) situation. However, he isn't as much of a skilled fighter as Webby is, often resulting in Leeroy Jenkins scenarios which his friends have to bust him out of.
  • Jumped at the Call: While all of the kids are excited to join Scrooge on a voyage to Atlantis, Dewey is the one who runs right into the city and ahead of Scrooge without any concern for what dangers lie ahead.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: He has the habit of intentionally running into danger, such as navigating the submarine through a sea full of monsters and crossing a rope bridge with laser-triggered fire traps as a self-imposed challenge.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: While he and Webby ARE the only ones of the main kids to be investigating Della, he's also completely unaware of what actually happened to her.
  • Mama's Boy: Seems to be the most driven out of his brothers to find out what happened to their mother.
  • Meaningful Name: The "deutero" part of "Deuteronomy" means "second", which is a fitting name for the middle child of the triplets.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: The middle child of the triplets and wants to prove himself because of this. He even goes so far as to create a holiday where he gets to spend the day pretending he's an only child so he doesn't have to share any attention or time with the other two.
  • Nephewism: Dewey and his brothers have been raised and cared for by their Uncle Donald all of their lives.
  • Nice Guy: Generally friendly and easygoing, albeit a bit more impulsive than Huey.
  • Nice Mean And In Between: Of the triplets, Dewey is the "In-Between" one, as he's more impulsive than Huey but not as selfish as Louie.
    • In notable circumstances, he can switch places with Huey as being the Nice Guy.
      • "Daytrip of Doom!" has Dewey be the only one of the triplets to invite Webby on their excursion to Funso's Fun Zone. Huey and Louie both, at first, think Webby as being too socially awkward to join them on their trip.
      • "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!": After Mark Beaks is revealed as a fraud, Huey is all up for letting Falcon Graves toss the jerk off the building. Dewey is the one who says they have to intervene.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Word of God has stated that this is as far as Dewey (or, any of the triplets) will go with Webby. No Hugging, No Kissing, they'll be strictly friends only. And of the triplets, he easily gets along best with Webby, as the two have an equal thirst for adventure and a love for danger.
  • Secret Keeper: He's one of the only people besides Gyro and Launchpad who knows Fenton is Gizmoduck.
  • Sherlock Scan: He's quite observant when it comes to his surroundings, like when he realizes which is the real Jewel of Atlantis in "Woo-oo!" and notices that some of the books in Scrooge's private library were purposely out of order on the shelves in "The Great Dime Chase".
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Justified. Dewey shares a striking resemblance to his brothers because they are identical triplets.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: A byproduct of being the Fearless Fool.
  • Taught by Experience: Perhaps the reason why he is so outgoing and adventurous. If he doesn't find out how to do things firsthand, then it's missed opportunities, in his eyes.
  • Tell Me About My Father: Genderflipped version. Dewey wants anyone who has the knowledge to tell him about his mother.
  • The Three Faces of Adam: Is the Hunter part of the equation, with his uncle Donald as the Lord, and his great-uncle Scrooge as the Prophet.
  • Thrill Seeker: If there's a path that leads to danger and adventure he is sure to take the most dangerous route.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Woo-oo!" he challenges Glomgold to a fight, but is easily cowed and backs down before a blow is even exchanged. In "The Spear of Selene!", he takes on Webby in a brawl that lasts for several minutes and manages to hold his own before Webby eventually pins him.
    • His ability to think on his feet in general has vastly improved compared to when the show started. Compare his actions in the climax of "Beware the BUDDY System!" to his actions in the climax of "Woo-oo!", and it's clear that Dewey has only gotten more proactive and competent with experience.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Of the Triplets, Dewey is the guy who most visibly seeks some form of parental validation from both Donald and Scrooge. The former is a perpetual worrywart and the latter is a Grumpy Old Man and Dewey is a little miffed at first but at the end of "Woo-oo!" both of them respect him.

    Llewellyn "Louie" Duck 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dt2017___louie.png
"As long as you can talk, you can talk your way out. Trademark Louie Duck."
Voiced By: Bobby Moynihan

The youngest triplet, he isn't bothered by much and just likes going along for the ride. Possessed of a cunning mind and the best social skills of his brothers, Louie wants to be successful but is hampered by his tendency to shy away from putting in significant effort or focus into achieving long-term goals. His own impulsiveness is perhaps his worst enemy.

He likes green.


  • Adaptation Name Change: Played with. While everyone still calls him "Louie", in the comics his full first name is Louis but in this series it's Llewellyn (which he absolutely hates).
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Downplayed. While he is kinder in this adaptation on some things (see Adaptational Nice Guy below), he is also a lazy, greedy brat who frequently lies and cheats to get what he wants, none of which are personality traits he had in the original show.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In the previous adaptation, while Huey and his brothers did care for Webby, they also treated her as an Annoying Younger Sibling and hated spending time with her just because she was a girl and had feminine interests. Here, he and his brothers treat her with respect and enjoy her companionship with no problems with her gender. Louie, in particular, takes her under his wing in regards to how to lie properly.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In "The Great Dime Chase", when he looks up how to open a locked door, he gets distracted by an advertisement for the TV show "Ottoman Empire". Later, he accidentally uses his (not Scrooge's) newly acquired #1 Dime in the vending machine, while going on about how he's going to take good care of it.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: The youngest of his brothers and he doesn't mind it because he can "slip under the radar".
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He is 10 years old most likely, and is lazy, scheming, and greedy.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He's clever like Huey, but he's largely unmotivated, preferring to mooch off people - the show's Eye Catch even has him break the fourth wall and ask viewers to come do his chores for him during the commercial break. One of the three intertwining plots of The Great Dime Chase! has Scrooge trying to teach him the value of hard and honest work.
  • Broken Pedestal: He initially idolized his uncle Gladstone. This faded after Louie discovered how selfish and uncaring Gladstone can really be.
  • The Charmer: He's very good at flattering people and has no problem using it for his own personal reasons.
  • Color-Coded Characters: With his brothers and Webby; Louie's associated with green.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Makes many dry, sarcastic remarks.
  • Does Not Like Spam: According to "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!", Louie hates hot dogs.
  • Do Wrong, Right: When he learns Webby didn't tell Mrs. Beakley that she went on a journey with him, his brothers, and Scrooge, he admonishes her since it'd mean she'd be worried sick. He then has Webby call Mrs. Beakley and lie to her grandmother saying she's sleeping at a friend's house.
  • Embarrassing First Name: "The Spear of Selene" reveals that Louie's first name is Llywellyn. Unlike his brothers, he seems horrified at it being used.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Two moments in "Woo-oo!".
    • Tosses away Donald's sailor suit and forces him to wear a jacket and tie for his job interview, telling him to "dress for the job he wants, not the job he has, which is no job" showing his sarcasm and lax morals but also his good heart as well as his good people skills. Then when Donald asks where Dewey is, he easily lies through his teeth and gets mad at Huey for being a Bad Liar.
    • During their gush about Scrooge's adventures, each sibling shares what they've heard of his tales, and what they admire most about him and the simple fact that Scrooge is so rich he can swim in his Pooled Funds is enough to excite him.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • When Webby reveals that she didn't tell her grandmother she was going out with the others during the pilot, Louie admonishes her for unnecessarily making Mrs. Beakley worried sick (Although he encourages her to lie about spending the night at a friend's house).
    • It's shown that he does have some restraints when it comes to acquiring money. In "The Great Dime Chase!", when he takes Scrooge's "emergency dime" from the display so he can buy a soda, he has every intention of paying Scrooge back later.
    • In "McMystery At McDuck McManor", he thinks it's unfair for Huey to force Scrooge to celebrate his birthday and attend a party the latter clearly doesn't want, and calls his brother out for his It's All About Me attitude.
  • Evil Twin: Played for Laughs. When Webby asks which one of the triplets is evil, Huey and Dewey immediately point to Louie... who doesn't even try to defend himself and instead shrugs and gives an agreeable "eh."
  • Facepalm: Out of the three brothers, he tends to do this the most.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Forms this with his brothers and Webby, he is the Phlegmatic (reserved and lazy).
  • Freudian Trio:
    • With his brothers, he plays the Id to Huey's Superego and Dewey's Ego, being the most lazy and inconsiderate.
    • In "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!", he plays the Ego to Huey's Superego and Webby's Id, telling Webby that Huey's "usually right about nerd stuff", while coaxing Huey to be more flexible and adaptable to the unknown.
  • Greed: Louie is pretty obsessed with wealth. When they find Scrooge's treasures, he puts green labels on them to mark which ones he will get when Scrooge eventually passes and the comic adaptation features him doing several schemes to make money.
  • Green and Mean: Downplayed. Louie's main color scheme is green (as seen by his green hoodie) and while he is greedy, selfish, and lazy, he has a good heart and is nowhere near a much of a jerkass as his uncle Gladstone.
  • Guile Hero: To Huey's Science Hero and Dewey's Action Hero. Louie admires his uncle Scrooge most for the vast wealth he has collected, as well as the charisma and cunning it took to get it.
  • High School Hustler: He's not yet in high school but he already has this act. His antics at the start of the "Great Dime Chase" also mark him as a slacker.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Triplet ID tag, in this case; he wears a green hoodie.
  • It Runs in the Family:
    • Each of the siblings inherit a trait from Scrooge. Like Scrooge, Louie has a love of money and riches, despite not being as much of an honest, hard worker as his Great Uncle. His schmoozing and ability to charm people to do his job for him also shows parts of Scrooge's exploitative cheapskate nature and that Louie also believes in "work smarter not harder" albeit by being smart enough to not work at all (which was not Scrooge's message at all).
    • His charmer personality and his wanting something for nothing attitude gives him a lot with common with his Uncle Gladstone.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's greedy, money-grubbing and rather lax when it comes to morals, but despite being labeled the "evil triplet", he still has a good heart and cares about his loved ones.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Along with Huey. Dewey and Webby haven't told them anything about Della or their investigation into her disappearance.
  • Lovable Coward: Louie is the most likely of the children to show fear in the face of danger, just look at the picture on the main page, that said he will still fight to protect his friends and family.
  • Mellow Fellow: Louie is quite laidback and easygoing, to the point of being The Stoic.
  • Nephewism: Louie and his brothers have been raised and cared for by their Uncle Donald all of their lives.
  • Nice Mean And In Between: Of the triplets, Louie is the "Mean" one, as he is the most greedy and selfish of his brothers.
    • Became the in-between in "McMystery At McDuck McManor", while Huey became the mean one and Dewey became the nice one.
  • Non-Action Guy: He and Huey are this, while Dewey and Webby are Action Heroes.
  • No Sense of Direction: Apparently gets lost when he's in charge of the map when the triplets kayak. Dewey even calls him "Captain Lost".
  • Not So Similar: From his Uncle Gladstone; they both believe in trying to get something for nothing and coasting through life but Gladstone only cares about himself, while Louie cares for others.
  • Not So Stoic: In normal circumstances, he affects a laid-back, carefree attitude. But there are moments where he loses his cool.
    • When Webby ties up the triplets and begins interrogating them, Louie actually starts crying. (Of the triplets, he generally seems to be the one who cries the easiest.)
    • When Lena nearly attacks him in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!", he looks darn near traumatized, crawling to Huey for comfort.
    • He also gets very squeamish when he peaks into a canopic jar in a pharaoh's tomb and learns firsthand that they weren't used for storing treasure.
    • In general, he tends to lose his composure in dangerous situations he can't talk his way out of, or when his attempts to talk his way out fail.
  • Only in It for the Money: The only reason he goes on Scrooge's adventures is because he wants to find treasure. In "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest", upon learning that there is no treasure on the mountain and the group is just climbing it for adventure's sake, he immediately drops his equipment and goes to get hot cocoa and relax at a sauna in the resort town.
    • Further, he's not exactly thrilled to play Golf with the family. Only tagging along because he gets tipped by Glomgold as his substitute Caddie.
  • Only Sane Man: On rare occasions, he plays this role when everyone else gets too caught up in the thrill of adventure and mysteries while he stays Closer to Earth. In "McMystery At McDuck McManor", while Huey wants to solve the mystery of who kidnapped Scrooge himself to prove he's a great party planner, Louie wants to call the police or Mrs. Beakley for help.
  • The Only One Allowed To Insult You: "No one cons my family but me!"
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Word of God has stated that this is as far as Louie (or, any of the triplets) will go with Webby. No Hugging, No Kissing, they'll be strictly friends only. Of the triplets, he is usually either a Toxic Friend Influence teaching Webby how to Do Wrong, Right, or Webby getting annoyed with him over his tendency to cut corners and take the easy way out.
  • The Slacker: His laziness annoys Scrooge greatly. At the start of "The Great Dime Chase!", he's chugging cans of Pep Soda (but only one sip of each, to get "peak carbonation") while watching TV, taken to calling Beakley by cell (which he throws away when its battery runs out, because he didn't want to bother charging it) while still in the mansion and more or less puts on a couch potato act before Scrooge.
  • The Social Expert: Louie has a knack for schmoozing people and recognizing what makes them tick.
  • The Stoic: He's the most calm and neutrally expressive of the cast, though in a laid-back manner. Makes it more notable when something happens to break his cool (namely dangerous situations).
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Justified. Louie shares a striking resemblance to his brothers because they are identical triplets.
  • Token Evil Teammate: The other triplets insist he's the evil one, an assertion he merely shrugs at. It's mostly an Informed Flaw as he's not really "evil". However, he has no qualms about lying or swindling people out of money.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: He frequently tries to teach Webby skills like lying, schmoozing with people to get free stuff, and cutting corners with buying things.
    Louie: Lying: it's the responsible thing to do!
  • Troll: Pretends to support both Webby and Huey's viewpoints in "Terror of the Terra-Firmians!" solely to keep the argument going because he thinks that it's more entertaining than the movie they just saw.

"I'm going to eat a hamburger!"
Voiced By: Kate Micucci

The granddaughter of Mrs. Beakley who is a huge fan of the McDuck family and happy to finally have friends.


  • Action Girl: Learned "everything she knows" from her grandmother, including how to fight.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Zigzagged. In the original series, she didn't have an unhappy life, but she was treated poorly by the triplets simply because she was a girl and had feminine interests. In this adaptation, the triplets (who are nicer in this reboot) welcome her quickly as a friend, showing zero problems with either her gender or interests; however, she has also been living in McDuck Manor for most, if not all of her life, which has greatly affected her social life and skills, contributing to her desire for friends.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the previous series, she was just the Tagalong Kid who had a tendency to get into a lot of danger. Here, her saying Mrs. Beakley "taught her how to take care of herself" is a massive understatement.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the original cartoon, she didn't have hair normally, but a future version of her did have long golden locks. Here, she not only has (what looks to be) hair, but it's also pure white.
  • Adorkable: Hopelessly socially awkward, but endearingly so. She's never had any real friends before the triplets came along, due to her granny never letting her leave McDuck Manor.
  • Affectionate Nickname:
    • "Dear" from her grandmother.
    • In "The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra", Louie calls her "Webs".
  • Age Lift: In the previous series, Webby was younger than the triplets. Here, while it's not stated how old she is, she's at least around the same age as they.
  • A Girl And Her X: Averted, but apparently in the pilot, her Only Friend would have been a spider named Morocco Pete.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: She owns a book titled "So You Like Ponies?", and gets super-excited when she encounters colorful talking ponies (actually kelpies) in Moorshire.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: She has a few quirks that are often signs of being on the autism spectrum, including rocking back and forth, being anxious in unfamiliar environments, and being unable to pick up on social cues.
  • Ascended Extra: Downplayed. While Webby was a central character in the original series, in this adaptation, she is now a main protagonist.
  • Ascended Fangirl: A huge fan of the famous McDuck family and is now friends/adventuring buddies with them.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Despite being closer in age to the triplets in this adaptation, Webby is still presumably younger than them.
  • Badass Adorable: A cute child, huge fangirl of the McDuck family, and an expert in taking down grown adults who are masters at swordsmanship.
  • Bad Liar:
    • Her attempts to lie to her grandmother in the pilot are laughable at best.
      Webby: Hi, Granny, I'm spending the night at a friend's house so nothing is wrong!
    • In "Daytrip of Doom", Louie once again tries to get her to lie to latch some free soda of a friendly waitress, but Webby screws it up and ends up ruining the entire scheme.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's a sweet kid, but will kick your butt if you mess with her and the ones she's close to. As of "From the Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22!", she is responsible for the apparent death of one of the show's villains.
  • Birds of a Feather: Out of all the triplets, she's the closest with Dewey due to their mutual love of adventure and conquering dangerous situations.
  • Catch-Phrase: She introduces herself to every new character they encounter with "Hi! I'm Webby."
  • Chewing the Scenery: The first scene of "Daytrip of Doom!" has Webby do an overly immersive performance in a dart gun game:
    Webby: [when told by Dewey to "take it down a notch"] TELL THAT TO MY MEN YOU CAPTURED IN PEKING!!
    Dewey: What?
    Webby: It's part of my character's Backstory. [has Let's Get Dangerous! look on face] "Grizzled ex-Special Forces pulled out of retirement for revenge!" [snaps back to normal] What's yours?
    Dewey: My guy has a dart gun?
    Webby: Not anymore. [nails Dewey with Dart Guns Akimbo; Dewey screams as he's hit, then Webby snags Dewey's darn gun with a grappling hook] Ha ha!
    [Huey gasps as how intense Webby just got and is running for the foyer after Webby just tried to nail Huey. He makes it to the foyer and tosses the gun aside.]
    Huey: The foyer's the Safe Zone! THE FOYER'S THE SA-AHH! [Webby lands on him.]
    Webby: This is no foyer...this is a tomb.
  • Color-Coded Characters: With the triplets; Webby's associated with pink/purple.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Is a product of this. Mrs. Beakley trained her to be "prepared for anything," which explains her Gadgeteer Genius and martial arts mastery, yet she had to stay in the mansion most of her life since it's the safest place she can be.
  • Ditzy Genius: When it comes to fighting, preparedness, or random information no one else would likely know, she's your girl. She's also someone with horrible social skills.
  • Establishing Character Moment: In "Woo-Oo!", Webby ties up the nephews and interrogates them, mistaking them for agents of Scrooge's enemies. Once they tell her who they are, she has a fangasm and excitedly asks them questions about being related to Scrooge and Donald. This shows her fighting prowess and fangirling of the McDuck-Duck family.
  • Fake Brit: In-Universe, Webby is good at faking a UK accent if the occasion is needed, because she was raised by her British grandmother in a mansion owned by a Scottish trilionare. According to her, Webby never heard an American accent before she turned seven.
  • Foil: To the triplets — All four of them were raised by an overprotective guardian, but while the triplets grew up to be well-adjusted, Webby became socially impaired. On the other hand, the triplets know very little about their family, while Webby's favorite hobby is studying their family's past and exploits.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Forms this with the triplets, she is the Sanguine (cheerful and energetic).
  • Freudian Trio: Plays the Id to Huey's Superego and Louie and Lena's Ego in "Terror of the Terra-firmians!". Webby believes in the existence of Terra-firmians even without concrete proof, something which even the laidback Louie and Lena rebuke her for.
  • Friendless Background: She had no friends prior to meeting the triplets, which results in her having a a strong desire to make friends but also a notable lack of social skills.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Seems to have a knack for setting traps, such as her Establishing Character Moment lassoing the twins and hanging them upside down, and the elaborate traps she sets up for the triplets while playing with dart guns in the "Daytrip of Doom!" sneak peak.
  • Genki Girl: She is far more excitable than she was in the original show. It's played down in the episodes that followed and shown more as a result of her sheltered childhood.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: Downplayed. Spending years, maybe her entire life, alone in McDuck Manor didn't make Webby go mad, but she is a Cloudcuckoolander who doesn't know the first thing about living in the outside world, and breaks out the martial arts and weapons as a first resort.
  • Good Is Not Soft: As Black Heron finds out, Webby has no problem using lethal force against her.
  • Hair Decorations: Has a bow on the right side of her hair.
  • Hero Worship: Webby thinks the utter world of Scrooge McDuck, to the point that it's her first assumption that Della's mysterious note about the Spear of Selene must mean she committed a horrendous betrayal against her innocent uncle.
  • Hidden Depths: She took cello lessons for seven years.
  • Iconic Item: Has two — Her Night-Vision Goggles and Grappling-Hook Pistol.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Webby has barely ever left the McDuck mansion due to her grandmother insisting to keep her safe. She gets excited at meeting the triplets and the idea that they are now friends.
  • Little Miss Badass: Thanks to the self-defense training by her grandmother, she is extremely athletic and competent with weapons, making her easily one of the most physically capable characters of the show despite being ten-year-old girl.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Well, she's not rich herself, but she lives in the giant mansion of the richest person in the world without any people around her age and the triplets seem to be her first friends ever.
  • Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Webby did some very elaborate World Building for the legendary race of Terra-firmians. Although they turn out to be Real After All, it appears that the history and culture Webby described was all in her head.
  • Mundane Luxury: One of her goals in life is to eat a hamburger. In fact, the triplets offering to get her one leads her to conclude that they're her best friends.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Her dramatic declaration that one day, "I'm going to eat... a hamburger!" as she strikes an adventurous pose similar to the Scrooge McDuck statue directly behind her, is made of this. Later she treats a ride on a regular city bus as one of the most exciting things she has ever done.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Webby has the average build of someone being around 10-years-old, but she has proven to be stronger than she looks — being able to take on and win against adults.
  • Nice Girl: Webby may be strange and have poor social skills, but she's nonetheless sweet and caring.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Lampshaded when she turns the page of a book a stranger is reading entitled "The Joy of Personal Space." If a stranger invades her personal space though, she is liable to get violent.
  • No Social Skills: Before she met the nephews she never had any friends. So she's a bit...overeager in her social skills.
  • The Paranoiac: As a result of Beakley's intense training, Webby is quick to assume that any surprises are some kind of trap or sneak attack.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Downplayed, she's a Tomboy with a Girly Streak who primarily wears pink and purple.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Webby has a close but very different bond with each of the triplets.
    • She easily gets along best with Dewey, as the two have an equal thirst for adventure and a love for danger.
    • Her relationship with Huey tends to stray into Vitriolic Best Buds territory, due to Huey being more practical and safety conscious, but at the same time, can be a highly supportive relationship as Huey, being the nicest of the triplets, will go out of his way to try and have Webby feel included in their activities or comfort her after some hard times.
    • Louie is usually either a Toxic Friend Influence teaching Webby how to Do Wrong, Right, or Webby getting annoyed with him over his tendency to cut corners and take the easy way out.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Downplayed, her regular outfit is a combination of pink and purple shades, but Webby is much more Badass in this series.
  • Raised by Grandparents: As Mrs. Beakley stated, "[She] has enough excitement caring for Webby".
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: As Louie says, her skills make her a great asset on adventures and treasure hunts, but she has no idea how to relax and be a normal kid.
  • Secret Keeper: She's the only one who knows about Dewey's quest to learn what happened to the triplets' mother and helps him with finding information.
  • The Smart Guy: Due to years of being locked up in McDuck Manor, she took up researching Scrooge's adventures as a hobby. As such, she has an almost encyclopedic knowledge about him, his adventures, and the artifacts he's found.
  • Squee!: Her reaction to Scrooge announcing their adventure on the submarine, showing that she still retains a girly side despite being much more of a tomboy in this series.
  • Sweet Tooth: In "The House of the Lucky Gander!", she gets all excited upon seeing a chocolate fountain served at the buffet. And then in "The Impossible Summit of Mount Neverrest!", she is the first to rush into the mountain's resort town because it had a churro stand.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: As said above, she is far less of a girly-girl than the original Webby, but still retains a noteworthy girly side all the same. She wears hairbows and pleated skirts, loves ponies, and admits to Dewey that part of the reason she covers her notebooks in glitter is because it makes them pretty.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: She has a bit of a violent edge.
    • When the nephews arrive at McDuck Manor, she kidnaps, ties them up and interrogates them.
    • In "Daytrip of Doom!", when the kids play with dart guns, she takes it way too seriously by setting up booby traps and creating a PTSD ridden ex-Special Forces character for herself.
    • When faced with a angry store manager she seems to think that Louie indicating for her to be quiet is him telling her to attack the manager with a spork. Thankfully she doesn't go through with it.
    • She remarks she plans to break every bone in Ma Beagle's body. Or just tie her up. She's okay with either.
    • She’s given a lot of thought towards how she’d like to die.
  • Weapon of Choice: She makes frequent use of a grappling hook gun. However, her most common "weapon of choice" is empty-handed Martial Arts, taught to her by Mrs Beakley; taught so well in fact she is able to take down an adult armed with a sword.
