Three Caballeros

    In General 
The trio of heroes who fight to save the day.
  • Adaptational Badass: Originally the Three Caballeros were presented as a musical band or just as a trio of friends who hung out together. Here they are — or at least they grow to be — world-saving heroes and adventurers who fight monsters and evil sorcerers.
  • Because Destiny Says So: The Caballeros accept their destiny as defenders of the world.
  • The Chosen One: All three of them, Because Destiny Says So.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: Donald is blue, José is green, Panchito is red. (Xandra, who's their closest ally, has yellow/gold as her signature color.)
  • Deadpan Snarker: All three of them have their own distinct variation of snarkiness. Donald is very blunt with his snark, and usually snarks when he's annoyed or angry. José's snark is more subtle and playful, often delivered with an "it's all in good fun" attitude. And Panchito is a Cuckoosnarker whose snark is more likely to be nonsensical or Leaning on the Fourth Wall.
  • Denial of Animality: Quoting Panchito: "We're not birds. Its not like we can fly".
  • Disney Death: Oh yes. The God of Death blasts them to the Underworld, and an entire episode is dedicated to them trying to get back into life.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Donald is Choleric, José is Phlegmatic, Panchito is Sanguine and their ally Xandra is Melancholic.
  • Guile Hero: They're a trio of normal, avian vagabonds with no real innate powers of their own apart from their grit and wits.
  • Identical Grandson: Donald, José, and Panchito are initially mistaken for their ancestors by Xandra. She even questions why they look so similar. The only way to differentiate the originals from the current three is the fact that the originals had beards.
  • Legacy Character: Donald, José, and Panchito are the descendants of the original Three Caballeros, a trio of knights who (partially) freed Xandra from an evil wizard's thrall and (mostly) defeated him and his evil army.
  • Lovable Coward: The three of them, initially. They are running from some kind of danger (be it a minotaur, a horde of giant termites or a bear on top of a globe) at least Once an Episode.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In an attempt to earn some money from Clinton Coot's treasures, the Three Caballeros (and Daisy's nieces) inadvertently sell a powerful cursed trinket to Baron Von Sheldgoose for $1000.
  • Power Trio: They are the Three Caballeros, after all!
  • Took a Level in Badass: At first they're mainly a trio of broke layabouts (at least Donald and José are; Panchito is more of a daredevil from the start, with a "secret wrestler" persona, and doesn't seem to be struggling financially), who would rather run away from danger than turn and face it. They're also not the most competent of heroes; despite the occasional flash of brilliance they tend to screw up and goof around a lot. As the series goes on, they become quite a lot braver, more serious about the hero business, and above all more competent.
  • True Companions: They're birds of a feather.note 

    Donald Duck
Voiced by: Tony Anselmo
Everyone's favorite unlucky duck.
  • Alliterative Name: Donald Duck. His rarely-used middle name, Fauntleroy, subverts this.
  • Adaptational Badass: He's still the Donald Duck we know and love, but his destiny being a warrior and following the footsteps of his ancestor who was a great warrior really makes him more of a badass than his other appearances.
    • Somewhat downplayed in the sense that most of Donald's incarnations have always had a badass aspect to him not just in the adventure-laced Carl Barks comics but even in classic cartoons where he's punched out a shark, headbutted a mountain goat and uprooted a utility pole in fits of rage. But this version of him does take his badassery up even further.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He (accidentally) saves the day in the fifth episode right before it looked like the Lava Lizards were going to win.
    • Happens again in the finale where Donald enters the fight just in time...this time with the Caballeros' armour.
  • Big Eater: Donald just really loves to eat.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Guess what's the color of his sailor suit.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's the most temperamental fighter of the bunch.
  • Butt-Monkey: No duh, Sherlock. The first episode really piles on with disaster after disaster for him... and on his birthday too! note 
  • Catchphrase: "Idea!"
  • Character Development: After 84 years, it seems that Donald has finally got his anger issues in check!
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Aptly described by Daisy as "angry, undependable, and selfish". Donald begins the series in one of his least flattering iterations to date before Character Development kicks in, all too willing to sell all of his great-grandfather's artefacts (including Xandra's atlas) to Shieldgoose for a million dollars in the first episode and attempting to use his fellow Caballeros to distract the minotaur to save his own skin under the guise of "splitting up" in the second.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: He becomes the president of the New Quackmore Institute, gets together with Daisy again, inherits the mansion, and has a new family.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: His middle name is Fauntleroy. He's not particularly happy when people found out about it.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's smart and creative but physically strong enough to hold down enemies.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: In the second episode, Donald gets two devils who are both in perfect agreement with each other. Of course, following their advice only gets him into bigger trouble.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: A trademark of the character. It gets to the point that when he's angry, the extent that his eyes flash yellow and red right before he smashes through whatever was in the way.
  • Hates Being Touched: He seems to hate being touched or hugged, always looking annoyed when someone does so.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Donald's heartbroken over his breakup with Daisy for most of the series and he has trouble coping with it.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Has a sword for his Caballero weapon, and is also the main hero of the trio.
  • It's All About Me: He got called out by Jose and Panchito for being selfish and greedy. It doesn't help that he'll definitely leave them in a heartbeat in order to fix his relationship with Daisy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He might be grouchy, angry, and unwilling to go along, but he cares very much for his fellow Caballeros and Daisy.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: He hates puns. Every time someone says a pun, he often tells them to stop.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Except for Xandra, who's a goddess of adventure, Donald seems to be the strongest of the Three Caballeros and is usually the first to fight with fists. He's tackled Sheldgoose a few times and in the "Mexico A Go Go" episode, even tackled both Sheldgoose and Panchito after their match caused a long-distance date with Daisy (via magic mirror) to go poorly.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: A sign that Donald has gone from annoyed to angry to furious is when his eyes flash yellow and red and he will try (and often succeed) to destroy whatever or whoever was unfortunate enough to piss him off.
  • Spiders Are Scary: He absolutely hates spiders and is terrified of them.
  • Terrible Artist: He can't draw. Not even a straight line.
  • Unstoppable Rage: He's always had an ability to be a force of nature when he gets angry but this adaptation really weaponizes his anger, especially after the group goes to Camelot and get a year's worth of training in a day from King Arthur himself and Donald's capacity for destruction is further enhanced after the training to literally destroy and smash anything in his way, including an entire room of metal appliances.

    José Carioca
Voiced by: Eric Bauza
A broke Brazilian parrot.
  • Bowdlerise: José no longer smokes cigars due to Disney's self-imposed ban on on-screen smoking in their media since 2007.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Zigzagged. On one hand he is The Charmer who woos almost all girls he comes across. But he has a tendency to put his foot in his mouth, especially when trying to be the Cunning Linguist.
  • The Charmer: The most charming of them all!
  • Chick Magnet: His introductory scene had him getting off from a bus of ladies fawning over him.
  • Composite Character: An odd variant, as he's a composite version of two versions of himself. This version combines his Charmer and Nice Guy image from the original movie with the constantly broke nature of his comics counterpart.
  • Cunning Linguist: José thinks he's one of these, but his grasp on foreign languages is rather poor and more often than not, he ends up insulting the person he is trying to kiss up to.
  • Establishing Character Moment: He gets kicked off the bus, promising to pay the bus driver back, and blows a kiss goodbye to all the girls swooning over him on said bus.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: In one episode, we see him wearing white boxers with red hearts after he is stripped of his clothing. Oddly, unlike Panchito, José doesn't wear pants.
  • Motor Mouth: In a sense. It's downplayed compared to his classic appearances, where he'd lapse into rapid-fire speeches in Portugese, something he never does here. He's still the biggest talker of the Caballeros and often acts as their voice... though whether this is a good or a bad thing depends on the situation.
  • Nice Guy: Calm and optimistic and always willing to play well with others.
  • Parasol of Pain: It doesn't cause as much damage as his scimitar, but he has been seen fighting with it.
  • Sinister Scimitar: Averted, he is one of the heroes, who just happens to have a scimitar as his Caballero weapon.
  • Super Gullible: Not the most prominent of his traits, but his tendency to think better of people than they deserve means he repeatedly falls for obvious cons or scams, to the point of giving away all his money to anyone with a sob story — no matter how unconvincing that sob story is to everyone else, José will fall for it every time.

    Panchito Gonzalez III
Voiced by: Jaime Camil
A daredevil from Mexico. Full name: Panchito Romero Miguel Francisco Quintero Gonzalez III.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: Downplayed as Panchito has always been a bit out there, but this iteration of Panchito is bigger ditz than his movie and previous show counterparts.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Panchito in the original movie, while cheerful and friendly, had a definite sadistic streak about him and would laugh heartily at other people's misfortunes (particularly Donald's). Here, barring a bit of snark at Donald's expense, he's all friendly cheer.. with a bit of The Ditz mixed in for good measure.
  • Adaptational Name Change: Though House of Mouse established his full name to be… the monstrous mouthful transcribed above way back in 1999, he was traditionally referred to in the comics by his nom-de-plume Panchito Pistoles. Since he lost the pistols here, this is not alluded to once. Even on top of that his name has been changed slightly; It was Panchito Romero Miguel Junipero Francisco III Quintero Gonzales in House of Mouse and here Junipero has been dropped.
  • Bowdlerise: Panchito no longer carries his pistols (his trademark weapon now being a lasso) and his nickname Pistoles is likewise dropped to accommodate this.
  • Catchphrase: Panchito often says "Ya-whoo!".
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Panchito's brain is often in another level. Think Pinkie Pie, except male and a bird.
  • Cuckoosnarker: For all of his cheerful weirdness, he is surprisingly sarcastic with his quips toward the others at times, mainly towards Donald.
  • Cuddle Bug: He loves hugging.
  • The Ditz: Panchito's personality is modified to being enthusiastic to the point of stupidity. But not frustratingly so.
  • Dumb Is Good: The most dimwitted and spacey of the Caballeros, but also the friendliest and most easygoing. He's even "on the fence" about whether he likes Jerkass Dapper Duck or not, while Donald and José are clear about their dislike for him.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Jumps off a plane, shouting "YA-WHOO", much to the confusion of Donald and Jose, and faceplants into the pavement, with the parachute deploying after his face is deep in the concrete.
    Panchito: The pilot was right! Waiting to deploy the parachute until you hit the ground is much more exciting!
  • Extreme Omnivore: He's shown multiple times to enjoy eating dirt. He's the only one of the Caballeros who actually likes the "planet pie" the Roman Gods treat them to.
    José: Ugh! (spits) Mine tastes like rocks!
    Donald: Mine tastes like mud!
    Panchito: Mine tastes like dirt. ...Yummy!
  • Genius Ditz: Even if he is a ditz, he has his moments of absolute brilliance.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: While not the brightest crayon in the box, Panchito has unlimited reserves for friendliness and optimism.
  • Masked Luchador: Panchito has a new extra persona of "El Gallo Loco" note , a famous masked wrestler.
  • Red Is Heroic: Is a Caballero who fights on the side of good. He's also a Face Wrestler.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He was a former wrestler before becoming a Caballero.
  • Overly Long Name: He introduces himself as Panchito Romero Miguel Francisco Quintero Gonzalez III.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: In "Mexico à Go-Go" Panchito refuses to win the final round of the wrestling match since he knows Sheldgoose will die if he loses. This despite Sheldgoose repeatedly trying to kill him.
  • White Gloves: A subversion for him, in contrast to other media that gives him actual white gloves. What looks like gloves is actually separate colored feathers, which are white up to his elbows.


Voiced by: Grey Griffin
The Goddess of Adventure. She was trapped in a magical book for centuries.
  • Action Girl: This isn't surprising since she's the goddess of adventure.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Thanks to being a goddess, she can breathe on the Moon without trouble.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Xandra is the Goddess of Adventure, which means she's aces at anything from heroic charges to fighting monsters to daring maneuvers. But it also means she's rather lost in situations that can't be solved with fighting, exploring or adventuring, which is typically where she needs to lean on the Caballeros on the nieces. Her being impulsive and violence prone isn't always a good thing, and she's practically inept socially.
  • Energy Bow: Her primary weapon.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Having been trapped in a book for a few thousand years, Xandra isn't quite up-to-date with modern society. Not to mention, nearly everyone she knew from her time who's still around has changed drastically in the meantime.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: She wears a golden armor with a white skirt, emphasizing her divine status.
  • Good is Not Nice: Her first reaction once out of the book was to threaten to kill Donald, José, and Panchito.
  • Gorgeous Greek: Though never explicitly said to be Greek, she looks the part and very nicely at that.
  • Herald: She's the one that sets the Caballeros on their journey.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even though Good is Not Nice, she's still a divine goddess and her objective is still to help the Three Caballeros save the world from an Evil Sorceror. And while their antics regularly frustrate her, she's still a loyal team mate to the Cabs and goes easy on them when they deserve it.
  • The Lad-ette: When invited to a sophisticated party, she acts like she's in a bar. Justified, as she's been trapped in a book for centuries and therefore doesn't know how to behave at such a social event.
  • Light Is Good: She wears gold and white and is a heavenly goddess.
  • Mr. Exposition: In addition to teleporting them to wherever they need to go, Xandra also supplies helpful knowledge of the "mystic points" when the Three Caballeros arrive there.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's definitely one of the most attractive characters in the show, with pronounced legs and hips.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: To highlight her status as a Goddess, she looks like a human woman instead of a cartoon animal, with fairly realistic proportions (but still stylized to fit the aesthetic of the series). It also allows her to function as a counterpart to the various human women from the original film.
  • Not So Above It All: Xandra usually plays the Only Sane Woman to the Caballeros' antics, but she will occasionally join in on the silliness, such as the popcorn fight in the fourth episode.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: She was bound to the book by Felldrake and was trapped there for centuries.
  • Stranger in a Familiar Land: While Xandra herself is unchanged, effectively being in suspended animation for a few centuries, everywhere she used to frequent in her adventuring days is now completely different, and her old friends and mentors have settled down - to her dissatisfaction.
  • Women Are Wiser: Partially subverted. She is still the most level headed character amongst the heroes, but after the first few episodes we see her impulsiveness and aggression cause her to make as many mistakes as the Caballeros.

    April, May, and June
Voiced by: Jessica DiCicco
Daisy's nieces, whom Donald calls to help with his garage sale. They end up being sucked in the adventure as well.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Usually don't show up until after Donald takes in his nephews (when they appear at all). In this series they seem to have known Donald a while and join his adventures long before the nephews ever appear.
  • Age Lift: Usually around ten in the comics but teenagers here.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: The girls don't have a high opinion of Donald, but in episode 5 they comfort him after Daisy breaks up with him and let him know that keeping his adventures a secret was selfless of him.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: June is purple, April is yellow, and May is orange.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Yep, they're incredibly dry snarkers — May especially.
  • The Dividual: To the point that Donald tends to confuse them for each other. They also tend to speak in synch, much like Huey Dewey and Louie used to do.
  • Genki Girl: June has traces of this, being notably more upbeat and energetic than the other two.
  • I Choose to Stay: Mild example as they're perfectly happy to stick with Donald even after Daisy ditches him. While its their job (as Voice with an Internet Connection) to hang around him they seemingly don't have quite as low an opinion of him as their aunt. Doesn't mean they won't spend alot of time calling him out on his flaws though.
  • Kid Hero: Although unlike most examples they tend to stay home in the heavily fortified Cabana rather than actively getting involved in any action. When they do infiltrate Shellgoose's mansion on their own Donald and the gang is utterly horrified and worried for their safety even though they do discover information that eventually helps stop Shelldrake.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: It's not very pronounced but June is the nice one, May is the mean one, and April is in-between.
  • Not So Above It All: Much like with Xandra; they initially seem to be a case of Women Are Wiser but, though they are VERY smart and crafty, it quickly becomes apparent the three of them are just as silly and make just as many mistakes as the Three Caballeros. They are still kids after all.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Self evident.
  • Secret-Keeper: The only ones who know everything about the teams activities.
  • Shipper on Deck: The triplets certainly go through a lot of trouble trying to play matchmaker between Donald and Daisy by helping Donald set up dates and doing everything they can to stop Donald from screwing up. Unfortunately Donald being Donald their efforts tend to fall flat a lot of the time.
  • Sour Supporter: They can be this to the Caballeros —- most notably May, who seldom has anything nice to say about anyone but still helps out as much as her sisters do. April isn't quite as sour as May, and June is barely sour at all, being on the whole the sweetest and most positive-minded of the three.
  • The Stoic: May, whose reaction to seeing an end-of-the-world scenario is a rather deadpan "There goes the neighbourhood."
  • Suddenly Voiced: While they have appeared in animation before, this is the first time they have voices.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitutes: Instead of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Donald is assisted by Daisy's nieces April, May, and June, triplet sisters who surprisingly show him more respect than the boys usually do.
  • Totem Pole Trench: The girls pull this off twice in the first season both times in order to help Donald's love life. The first time they pretend to be a waiter at a fancy restaurant Donald and Daisy are having a date in the second time they pretend to be Donald himself while he's away on a mission. May is pretty incredulous that the latter plan worked for as long as it did.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: They play this role for much of the series, staying behind in the cabana and communicating with the Caballeros and Xandra through a magic handheld mirror. In episode 9, "Mexico a Go-Go," Daisy breaks the mirror, though; after that they have to find other ways to help the Caballeros out.

    Ari the Aracuan Bird
The caretaker of the cabana.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Compared to his classic incarnation, he's a lot friendlier and more genuinely helpful here. He still likes Trolling other characters for no reason, but his pranks seldom reach harmful levels and overall he helps a lot more than he hinders — even if he goes on about it in an unorthodox way.
  • Almighty Janitor: Given his ability to bend the laws of reality, it's to be expected. Ari was the one that led Clinton Coot to discover Xandra's atlas deep in the Amazon, and opened said book when Coot couldn't despite access to magical artifacts. In the finale, Ari knew exactly that the "wizard puddle" would bestow the Caballeros with magical abilities, showing that he knows a lot more than he lets on.
  • Ascended Extra: In the movie and the "Clown of the Jungle" short film, he was simply an annoying bird who pestered Donald. He returns here as the estate's groundskeeper.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: An even heavier one than Panchito, to the point of being able to mess with reality at times.
  • Elongating Arm Gag: He can extend his arms and legs to great lengths when a gag requires so.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: He can disappear behind an object or the edge of the screen and reappear elsewhere.
  • Older Than They Look: Was looking exactly the same as he does now when Clinton Coot was a young man.
  • Those Two Guys: Develops this relationship with the Bear Rug in the later episodes.
  • Toon Physics: While it's toned down for everyone else, Ari is as Denser and Wackier as he's always been, including such abilities as Extendable Arms, Offscreen Teleportation and pulling out things from Hammerspace.
  • Troll: He routinely annoys the gang.
  • Ultimate Job Security: The lawyer in Episode 1 specifides that he can't be fired.
  • The Unintelligible: Instead of talking, he communicates by singing a nonsensical song.

    Bear Rug
Voiced by: Jim Cummings
A bear rug who is brought back to life, closely based on Humphrey the Bear from the classic cartoons.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Humphrey certainly wasn't a villain in previous shorts but he was mostly a nuisance to Donald. While the bear in this series plays this role in his debut episode, the rest of the series has him becoming a part of their team against Felldrake.
  • Adaptation Name Change: He is called Bear Rug, but is Humphrey in all but name (and backstory; of course, the original Humphrey wasn't an undead being sustained by the Spark of Life).
  • Back from the Dead: He started out as a rug made out of a dead bear, but he came to life thanks to the Spark of Life.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Subverted. While the Caballeros have trouble catching him, he isn't malicious and end up joining the team.
  • Beary Friendly: He acts as an affectionate pet to the team.
  • Beary Funny: He is a bumbling oaf despite being a large bear.
  • Big Eater: He has an appetite appropriate for a bear of his size. During his initial rampage, he steals a hot dog truck, then breaks into the New Quackmore Aquarium to catch fish, and to a bee exhibit to eat some honey.
  • Cowardly Lion: Despite being a big bear, he usually gets very nervous in prospect of danger.
  • Expy: Of Humphrey the Bear.
  • Gentle Giant: He might be an enormous brown bear, but he wouldn't hurt a fly.
  • Mythology Gag: He initially starts off as a bear rug, a reference to "Rugged Bear" where Humphrey the Bear disguises himself as a rug in Donald's house.
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: Just like in the original Humphrey cartoons, his growls and grunts sometime resemble human words, most notably he says "Oh no" once.
  • Team Pet: He's a non-anthropomorphic bear that the Caballeros keep as a pet after accidentally bringing him back to life.
  • Those Two Guys: After his debut episode, he becomes this with Ari.


    Baron Von Sheldgoose
Voiced by: Wayne Knight
Donald's snooty neighbor who later discovers he is the descendant of a powerful sorcerer.
  • Ambiguously Bi / Depraved Bisexual: Finds women attractive but remarks twice about the Minotaur's "hunkiness"/"beefiness".
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Assuming "Baron" is a title of nobility rather than his first name.
  • Butt-Monkey: He gets dragged around by Felldrake, and is constantly humiliated by everyone else around him.
  • Character Development: A rare villainous example. As the show goes along he becomes more proactive and makes his own plans rather than relying purely on Felldrake. He also grows more of a spine, becoming less afraid of Felldrake and eventually consistently insulting him to his face.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He might not be an experienced in adventuring, but he's a great persuader. He convinces the Moai to take a vacation instead of guarding against the lava lizards, and persuades the goblins to reveal their war weapon to him through the pretense of needing to learn where it is by keeping it safe. Indeed, he is implied to be a rather competent Manipulative Bastard.
"Ever wonder how I became the president of the New Quackmore Institute?"
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: He's stupidly wealthy, but assists his ancestor's schemes for the vague promise of power due to a mixture of ambition and boredom.
  • Evil Counterpart: Like The Three Caballeros, he's the descendant of a major figure within the history of the series' universe. Unlike them, however, he's descended from Lord Felldrake, their Arch-Enemy.
  • Expy: He looks a lot like Goosetave Gander, Gladstone Gander's father.
  • Fat Bastard: Rather heavy and is the villain of the series.
  • The Heavy: Since Felldrake, the true Big Bad, spends much of the series sealed in a staff, Sheldgoose is the chief active antagonist, carrying Felldrake's staff around and enacting his plans.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: His plans always fails and he is constantly berated by Lord Felldrake, who is also the only reason he presents even remotely a threat.
  • Large Ham: Yeah, Wayne Knight is put to good use here with how bombastic and over the top he can be.
  • Last-Name Basis: Everyone calls him Sheldgoose. Even Lord Felldrake despite being related.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Unlike Felldrake, who likes to just barge in and chew the scenery, Sheldgoose prefers to use more rational means to get what they want, like tricking the Moai into taking a vacation from guarding the volcano in "No Man Is An Easter Island".
  • Sharing a Body: As of "Sheldgoose Square Dance", Felldrake is now imprisoned inside him.
  • Upper-Class Twit: A villainous version.

    Lord Felldrake
An evil sorcerer who is trapped in a staff.
  • Big Bad: The primary villain of the series, and nemesis of The Three Caballeros, driving the plot of at least the first season with his plans.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: By his own admission, he's not a "very good person" (the context being that he plans to unleash an immortal and highly destructive monster).
  • Cutting the Knot: Centuries ago, he circumvented Xandra's spell on her atlas (that is, that only she could use it) by trapping her inside of the book, allowing Felldrake to use all the tome's powers unopposed.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Seems to have a thing for the queen of the lava lizards, though she seems oblivious to his existence. He also shows affection towards his pet Leopold.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Lord Felldrake, even while trapped in a staff and not able to move under his own power, manages to Chew the Scenery to an impressive degree, thanks to Kevin Michael Richardson's performance.
  • Evil Is Petty: He delights just as much in being a Bad Boss, Trolling people, taking revenge for small slights, and refusing to recycle, as he does in planning to Take Over the World.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Courtesy of his voice actor.
  • Expressive Mask: His soul is trapped in a solid staff, but it is capable of making faces.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: He doesn't have an elaborate motivation other than he's a Card-Carrying Villain who wants to Take Over the World.
  • Knight of Cerebus: After Felldrake is reborn as a demon. Not all the humor goes away but the stakes are raised tremendously and Felldrake loses most of his funny quirks.
  • Laughably Evil: An immensely powerful dark lord with the personality of a demanding brat stuck in a staff makes for a hilariously petty, scenery chewing character.
  • One-Winged Angel: After resurrected, he turns into a gigantic, demonic creature.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Although he was originally a normal goose, upon his resurrection he becomes a demonic being with horns. He even refers to his accelerated growth as "demonic adolescence".
  • Pet the Dog: Although he constantly abuses his minions, he occasionally shows kindness towards Leopold.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He's a powerful dark wizard whose magic glows purple, and has purple skin when he re-gains his body.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can/Leaking Can of Evil: While he can still perform magical acts like energy blasts, his defeat at the hands of the original Caballeros left him very weakened, and being trapped in a staff further limits his effectiveness without assistance. Eventually changes to Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can when Sheldgoose breaks the staff in the middle of the Cabs trying to reseal him, with Sheldgoose himself becoming the new can.
  • Sharing a Body: Is imprisoned inside Sheldgoose after his defeat in "Sheldgoose Square Dance".
  • Take Over the World: His plan.

    Leopold the Horrible
Felldrake's loyal monster minion.

Supporting Characters

    Daisy Duck
Voiced by: Tress MacNeille
Donald's on again, off again girlfriend.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: This is, without a doubt, the most mean-spirited version of Daisy in any Donald Duck cartoon. In the first episode, she refuses to listen to Donald when he's having a bad day and breaks up with him, does it again in the fifth episode, and even starts dating Dapper Duck to spite Donald.
  • Alliterative Name: Daisy Duck
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Even though she can be very rude and mean to Donald, she still loves him and wants him to be a better version of himself.
  • Hidden Depths: Is a talented puzzle solver to the point of being remarked as "crazy" about it. This comes in handy in the finale.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Daisy just wants Donald to get his life together, she just says it in the rudest way possible.
  • Kick the Dog: In the first episode she berated Donald for being selfish on his birthday after he was fired from his job, not allowing him to explain anything. In Episode 5, she coldly breaks up with him in a letter, telling him to never contact her again, and leaves him with the check.
  • Will They or Won't They?: Due to breaking up with him in the first episode Daisy is very frosty towards Donald but still ultimately loves him and a large part of the first season is Donald trying to prove he's a changed duck but constantly getting interrupted by his duty as a Caballero. Fortunately, after spending all of the penultimate episode in Shangri-La sorting out their issues, they are back together in the final episode.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Shangri-La helps her loosen up and realize how harsh and unreasonable she was to Donald, afterwards she treats him with much more patience and kindness.

    Clinton Coot
Voiced by: Thomas Lennon
Donald's great-grandfather and descendant of Don Dugo, one of the original Three Caballeros.

    Clara Cahoon
Voiced by: Unknown
Clinton Coot's second cousin.

    Dapper Duck
Voiced by: David Kaye
Daisy's short-time boyfriend, possibly as part of Operation: Jealousy.

    Eugenia Ferdinand-Ferdinand
Voiced by: Grey Griffin
The vice-president of the New Quackmore Institute who has a desire to become its president.
  • Animal Gender-Bender: She's a peahen with the bright colors and train of a peacock.
  • Peacock Girl: She's got the tail feathers, even though she's a woman.
  • Preppy Name: Of the double-barrel variety. Hilariously enough, they're the same name.
  • Proud Peacock: She is a female peafowl (with male plumage) who is the arrogant, snobbish and very ambitious vice-president of the New Quackmore Institute.
  • Repetitive Name: Both of her last names are Ferdinand.

Mythical Figures

    Larry the Minotaur
A Minotaur whom the Caballeros face at the beginning of their training.
  • Adaptational Heroism: The Minotaur of the original myth is a malevolent, man-eating monster. While Larry also attacks the Caballeros, it's only after they insult him, and it's only a Monster Façade anyway. He even assists the Caballeros in the finale, fighting off Felldrake's termites.
  • Animal Species Accent: The Minotaur initially speaks with nothing but "moo" sounds. After revealing that he actually speaks English, he still adds "moo" into his sentences (e.g. "Excuse moo" intead of "Excuse me").
  • Boisterous Bruiser: His real personality. After revealing that he attacked the Caballeros only as a test, he laughs and admits he never had that much fun in a long time.
  • Bull Seeing Red: He goes absolutely berserk when Donald and José wave a red flag at him. Ironically, he is red himself.
  • Good All Along: He was working with Xandra to test the Caballeros and see if they could work as a team.
  • Hulking Out: The Minotaur initially looks skinny and wears a bathrobe, but turns into a muscular giant when José tells him that his mother's a cheeseburger. He remains that way for the rest of his appearances, never turning back into his scrawny form.
  • Monster Façade: After defeated by the Caballeros, the Minotaur talks with Xandra in a very chummy way, and they explain that they were just testing the Caballeros.
  • Our Minotaurs Are Different: A Minotaur, living in the Labyrinth of Crete like his original counterpart.
  • Primal Chest-Pound: Upon Hulking Out, he pounds his chest before he stars chasing the Caballeros.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: The Minotaur literally uses a punch card after he finishes testing the Caballeros.
  • Punny Name: His name sounds like "Lair of the Minotaur".
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He wears a pink bathrobe when he first appears, and although he takes it off when he hulks out, he still keeps his pink slippers on.
  • Red Is Violent: He has red skin and at least acts violent while chasing the Caballeros.
  • Running on All Fours: He chases the Caballeros running on his hind legs like a man, but switches to quadrupedal bull-like running when Panchito wrangles him.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He throws off his bathrobe when he's Hulking Out, wearing only a loincloth and slippers for the rest of the episode.

    Moon Bots
Giant robots built by Moonlings.
  • Ancient Astronauts: Egypt was a colony of an ancient Moon civilization, with the pyramids being rocket ships they used to go between Earth and their home on the dark side of the Moon. Pyramid ships are even crewed by mummies in space suits.
  • Humongous Mecha: What they are. They can be controlled remotely by magic or with a driver.
  • Zerg Rush: How they wear Xandra down.

    The Roman Gods 
Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson (Jupiter), Eric Bauza (Mars), Grey Griffin (Venus)
Ancient gods of Rome: Jupiter, Mars, and Venus. They have grown old and retired from adventuring, preferring to plant tubers.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Jupiter and Venus are both much more benevolent and willing to help mortals than their mythological originals. Subverted with Mars who has always been much nicer than his Greek counterpart Ares.
  • Formerly Fit: Jupiter and Mars used to be strong and buff, while Venus used to be svelte. Now, Jupiter and Venus have put on heavy amounts of weight, while Mars has lost all of his muscle mass and is scrawny.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: The gods, particularly Venus, were much more attractive in their youth than they are now.
  • Retired Badass: They used to be powerful warriors who battled the Titans, but now all three of them have grown old and peaceful. Xandra pulls them into a Retired Badass Roundup to battle the giant termites created by Felldrake.
  • Sadly Mythtaken: The Greco-Roman Gods dwell in the World Tree — which has more to do with Norse mythology's Yggdrasil than with any part of Greco-Roman mythology.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: Mars has issues remembering Xandra's name, and appears to be hard of hearing as well.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Mars is portrayed this way, having flashbacks to the "Titan War".

    Lava Lizards 
Lizards that make up the lava of an Easter Island volcano. They wish to cover the earth in flames, but are contained by the Moai.

An army of stone warriors who keep the Lava Lizards from escaping the volcano.
  • Accidental Dance Craze: The Moai mistake Donald's angry emotes as a dance move. This ends up saving the day.
  • Gentle Giant: For gigantic warriors made of stone, they are very chill, party-loving beings.
  • Living Statue: They're living Moai, and the protectors of Easter Island.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: The Moai might have to get back in the sand and never take another vacation, but Ari leaves them a radio so they can listen to music.

Voiced by: Matt Danner, Kevin Michael Richardson (Vlorp and Master Jailer), Nicolas Roye (Worm/King Vomit)


A race of green-skinned creatures that were banished in an alternate dimension contained in Stonehenge. They are worthless without a king, but power-hungry with one.
  • Blood Knight: The goblins are a war-driven species, ready to conquer if they have a king.
  • Cat-apult: One of the weapons the Goblins have in their arsenal is a gigantic Lucifer-looking goblin cat that launches flaming cats off of a basic catapult. It can also launch others as well, however.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: They refuse to release the weapon Felldrake wanted to since it was too destructive, even for for them.
  • Expy: Worm/Vomit is clearly one of Creeper, albeit cuter. There's also a Cat-apult one that looks like Lucifer, but green and with wide shoulders and long arms.
  • Kangaroo Court: Their court immediately finds the Caballeros guilty. The judge doesn't seem to care much for the legal system.
    Judge: "But since we have legalities and blah-blah-blah formalities, I have to ask, how do you plead?"
  • Mook–Face Turn: The goblins become allies of the Caballeros once Worm/Vomit becomes the new Goblin King.


The kindest of the goblins.

    Goblin War Machine 
A huge wolf-like construct made by the goblins to be the ultimate weapon.
  • Emotion Eater: It feeds off of anger and discord, even a small and petty argument increases it's strength. Fortunately, love and reconciliation poisons it.
  • Gone Horribly Right: The goblins sure succeeded in making a nearly unstoppable weapon that wants to destroy everything...
  • Gratuitous French: It's often referred to as "bête de guerre" (French for "beast of war").
  • Horrifying the Horror: The goblins are a race obsessed with weapons and war, and even they are horrified at their creation’s destructiveness and sheer bloodlust.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Unlike every other villain on the show who has at least one funny trait, there is absolutely NOTHING funny about the Goblin War Beast and things get downright grim as it goes on its rampage.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: It’s only instinct is to try and destroy everything and everyone around it.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Taken to an absolutely ridiculous extreme, there isn't a single part of this thing that isn't sharp or covered in needle-like spikes.

    Presidential Ghosts 
The ghosts of the presidents of Mount Rushmore who reside inside the mountain. They are the keepers of the Spark of Life.
  • Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: The ghosts of the four presidents whose faces adorn Mt. Rushmore guard the Spark of Life, which was hidden in the mountain.
  • Friendly Ghost: They are allies to the heroes and quite amicable.
  • Historical Domain Character: They are based on the actual presidents of the USA, but re-imagined as anthropomorphic animals (Washington is a ducknote , Jefferson is a dog, Lincoln is a goose and Roosevelt is a pignote ).

    Nazca Creatures 
Voiced by: Eric Bauza (Mono), Grey Griffin (Hanzy), Dee Bradley Baker (Clementine)
Creatures that live in the Nazca dimension, guarding the Gyroscope at the center of the Earth.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population / Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Once they cross over to the surface of Earth, Mono becomes a green monkey and Hanzy becomes a blue-skinned humanoid woman.
  • Art Initiates Life: They can use their magic chalk to draw things in the Nazca realm.
  • Disney Death: Hanzy is erased by Felldrake, but the Caballeros re-draw her.
  • Easily Forgiven: Mono was secretly working against the heroes for quite a bit of the episode, but no one really mentions it after the villains are gone. Justified since Mono is really is a kind person who was just tricked by Felldrake.
  • Giant Spider: One of the many inhabitants in the Nazca dimension is Clementine, a giant spider that is easily angered.

    Gods of Life and Death 
Voiced by: Eric Bauza (Death), Grey Griffin (Life)
Two gods that reside in the Temple of the Sun. Every now and then, they choose two mortals to fight a wrestling match for them.
  • Dem Bones: The God of Death's true form is this.
  • God in Human Form: Death takes the form of a handsome gaucho who dances with Xandra. The God of Life is also the chicken José danced with.
  • Jerkass Gods: The God of Life and Death pick mortals to fight to the death in a wrestling match for their own amusement. They seem unfazed by it and treat it like a game. Quite the contrast from the much more kindly Roman gods a few episodes ago.
  • Light Is Not Good: Both the gods of Life and Death reside in the Sun. The former's in with the latter on their gladiatorial murders and is pretty content about having won by default, unconcerned about it having cost several lives.
  • No Body Left Behind: Death disintegrates whom he kills.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: The Goddess of Life has a snake head and she is a Jerkass God who is complicit in the match to the death.
  • Snake People: The beautiful green chicken José was dancing with turns out to be one, hiding her true form under a mask.

Voiced by: Jim Cummings
The ferryman of the underworld.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Invoked, Charon realized being a grim and sinister ferryman was just scaring away customers so he overhauled his small spooky boat into a big cruise ship and took on a much more jovial and energetic persona.
  • Dem Bones: At minimum his legs are skeletal. His hands are rotting flesh, while the rest is hidden beneath a cloak or uniform.
  • The Faceless: Of the In the Hood variety. All that's visible of his face are his glowing eyes.
  • The Ferryman: He still retains this role, although he's changed his standard boat into a cruise ship to liven things up.

    Sheldgoose's ancestors 
Voiced by: Wayne Knight
Sheldgoose's ancestors. They were all rich, evil folk, similar to their descendant. All of them died in unfortunate ways.
  • All Cavemen Were Neanderthals: Sheldgoose's oldest ancestor is a large, shabby-looking cave-goose who carries a stone hatchet and only says "ooga booga".
  • Celestial Bureaucracy: They've infiltrated and manage this in the Underworld.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: None of them died from natural causes, but rather things like being clubbed in the head, burnt on a stake, and stabbed. This worries Sheldgoose.
  • Dirty Coward: If a confrontation is not in their favor, they are quick to run away. Lampshaded by Felldrake.
    Felldrake: Hmph! Retreating with your tail between your legs is another Sheldgoose speciality
  • Dressed to Plunder: Sheldbeard the Creep has the look.
  • The Family That Slays Together: They run the Underworld.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: All of them dying in various violent and painful ways implies this. Plus they don't do much better in death, though they run the Underworld they have to serve a Bad Boss (who looks like one of their worst enemies) and when they face the heroes they get their butts kicked.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: They all look similar.
  • Posthumous Character: Generations are all deceased before the show starts.

    King Arthur 
Voiced by: John O'Hurley
The king of Camelot.
  • Actor Allusion: John O'Hurley played King Arthur before in Spamalot.
  • Expy: Bears a striking resemblance to Disney's portrayal of the other warrior King of England famed for leading an order of knights, Richard the Lionheart.
  • Furry Reminder: When he gets angry at his knights, he roars at them like a lion.
  • Immortality: He has been alive for hundreds of years thanks to the Grail.
  • King of Beasts: He's a large, muscular lion.
  • Nice Guy: He's a blowhard and wants to rely more on motivational speeches than action, but he really does want to help people and proves to be a close ally.
  • Rank Scales with Asskicking: Once he stops using motivational speeches and actually does battle, he's every bit the badass that Xandra claimed.
  • Rousing Speech: King Arthur's entire "training" is mostly him shouting rousing motivational speeches and plugging self-help books. When the Caballeros point out the flaws in his methods, the other Knights declare mutiny on him.

    Knights of the Round Table 
Voiced by: Eric Bauza (Lancelot), Matt Danner (Galahad), Grey Griffin (Kay), Jim Cummings (Bors the Younger)
The knights that make up King Arthur's court. Lancelot is a horse, Galahad is a frog, Kay is an ostrich and Bors is a dog.

Voiced by: Eric Bauza
Arthur's wizard master.
  • The Gambling Addict: Merlin, whom Arthur won't let play any games because of his "problem". When the nieces distract him with a smartphone game, he refuses to let anything come between him and the promised (virtual) riches for playing.
  • Only Sane Man: Subverted. Unlike the knights, Merlin knows the Arthur's motivational bullcrap is nonsense; but then he quickly grows distracted by a phone game and becomes obsessed with it.
  • The Owl-Knowing One: He's an old wizard who looks like an anthropomorphic owl.
  • Shout-Out: Merlin himself is a combination of the classic Merlin, along with elements of Professor Owl from the Adventures in Music Duology.

A massive dragon summoned by April, May, and June.
  • Back from the Dead: He is summoned again by Sheldgoose at the end of season one.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: The nieces kill him by throwing summoning scroll into the fireplace to burn it, which in turn, burns him alive.
  • Immortality Seeker: After getting summoned, Tyrone looks for the Grail. As Arthur explains, consuming the Grail would turn Tyrone immortal and able to burn the world for all eternity.
  • Kill It with Fire: After the scroll is placed in the flame, Tyrone combusts.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Alongside the Goblin War Machine, he is the only villain without any funny personality quirks. He is an avaricious and intelligent dragon who clearly enjoys harming others.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Or rather "Our Dragons Are The Same", he is a pretty standard Western dragon.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Yet another reptile that antagonizes the heroes.
  • Sympathetic Magic: He is tied to the scroll, and when it burns, so does he.
