A journalist working for Channel 00, always trying to make a specific target look like a villain to the public. Naturally, it's Paperinik himself in PKNA, and Everett Ducklair in PK2. He's more of a jerk than a villain though: there's been plenty of times where he's worked with Paperinik and even played the hero.
First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #0 "Evronians"
- Amazon Chaser: There are two things he liked about Xadhoom: her green eyes and the force she punched him with.
- Arch-Enemy: To Fenimore Cook, as he once tried to put toxic waste in the natural reserve near Angus' ancestral home and, once Angus' blackmail material was destroyed, hijacked Nebula Faraday's delirant plan to try and have them framed as terrorists and dispossessed. Cook reciprocates due the repeated humiliations Angus inflicted him.
- Big Eater: He love junk food. Flanderized in Pikappa.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows
- Big "WHAT?!": His reaction to Lyla's job change in PK2 #5.
- Cynical Mentor: At times he tries to be this to Lyla. She is not impressed.
- Combat Pragmatist: Angus got in combat just once, and held his own against a much bigger opponent by stomping on his foot and going for the eyes.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He seems to be just an overweight journalist... Who became famous for exposing a traffic of nuclear weapons, has blackmailed a Corrupt Corporate Executive into stopping polluting his clan's home, and only regrets not being able to finish the job with the Executive.
- He can also hold his own in a fight against a much bigger opponent by stomping on his foot and going for the eyes. He learned it in school rumbles...
- Enfante Terrible: Used to be one. His mother will never let him live down that time he played with dynamite.
- Expy: Angus is a very deliberate riff on Jonah J. Jameson from Spider-Man, although the former is a newscaster and the latter is the editor of a newspaper.
- Going for the Big Scoop: Will do anything to get one.
- The Grinch: "Aaaah... I hate Christmas!", while sporting a large grin and stealing a kid's Lollipop.
- Intrepid Reporter: Angus may be a jerk and hate PK for no apparent reason, but remains a Pulitzer-worthy reporter (he would have already won one if a fellow journalist didn't literally steal his award-winning report) who has blackmailed into submission the Corrupt Corporate Executive who owns New Zealand (and only regrets not having succeeded in getting him arrested. Not that it will stop him from accusing him of his crime on live television) and became famous for foiling a trade of thermonuclear weapons. Plus, Paperinik is well known in Duckburg for humiliating and beating the crap out of everyone who pisses him off and making a fool of the whole police department in multiple occasions, yet Angus still tries and accuses him of everything.
- Jerkass: To the point that the Evronians have tried to weaponize his tendencies in PKNA #1. Really. #49/50 shows what would have happened if they were successful. It's not pretty.
- Jerk Ass Has A Point: He believes Paperinik started out outing in costume because everyone he knew laughed at him and underestimated his abilities. Donald's motivation to become Paperinik in his first story was exactly that.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Although reserved even when the situation calls for him to display a bit of empathy, Angus isn't a complete jerk. His heart of gold really shows when it's about his Maori village. For example, he organized a charity basketball game between the news team and the soap actors to get free TV sets with satellite antennaes for his mother and everyone else in the village. The same story implies that this care doesn't extend to anyone else, as Angus hates charity events in general.
- My Favorite Shirt: His trenchcoat. In one story, a killer robot from a toy factory ruins it to recover evidence against his creators: Angus is so enraged, he wrecks the robot with a baseball bat.
- Noodle Incident: When he was a kid, he did something so bad, his mother holds it against him to this day. His defense amounts to "They could have written on them that it was dynamite... Well, bigger!".
- Repetitive Name: Finishing with "Gus".
- Signature Laugh: "Igh! Igh!"
- Token Minority: He's a Maori. And a literal Kiwi.
- Uncleanliness Is Next to Ungodliness: Personal hygiene is not his strong point and sure fit with his jerk personality.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Oh, the times PK has saved him and gotten no gratitude.
- Unsatisfiable Customer: "Without pickles it's not a Van Burger de Luxe!"
- Workaholic: He had to be forced in taking a vacation.
- Worst News Judgment Ever: He once admitted he doesn't believe Paperinik is a crook, but he's good for the ratings.
Writer of the soap opera "Anxieties" ("Patemi"). He was turned into a coolflame by the Evronians, which actually improved his writing skills.
First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #0 "Evronians"
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Before being partially coolflamed, he changed the main actor since the previous one was temporarily missing (kidnapped). After, among other things, he rewrites this as the two actors being two different main characters, Long Lost Twins who were Separated at Birth and are now reunited. And have the exact same name.
- Cursed with Awesome: Being partially coolflamed reduced both his attention span (making him a Cloud Cuckoo Lander and improving his writing) and made him emotionally subdued (making him really good at poker).
- Writers Suck: A great way for the writers to make fun of the category.
Mike Martinus Morrighan
A Channel 00 journalist.
First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #1 "Shadows on Venus"
- Alliterative Name: Three big Ms.
- Butt-Monkey: Even Lyla has occasionally laughed at him.
- Embarrassing Middle Name: At least according to Angus.
- Intrepid Reporter: Has had his moments.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His methods are... questionable, and he forced Camera 9 to work on Christmas Eve (while the latter was on vacation, no less), but he saved Angus' life from the Evronians and stayed in the hospital until he woke up.
- Master of Unlocking: Obtained a "universal door-opener" from a burglar he interviewed.
- The Rival: To Angus Fangus.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: He is often overshadowed by Angus, and was humiliated in the Christmas Episode, but he won the prize as the best journalist of Duckburg. He eventually becomes Everett Ducklair's press secretary after Lyla resignes from the role.
- As of PKNE, he seems to have gone on with a respectable career and he currently works as a press secretary.
- You Don't Look Like You: In his brief appearance in PK Tube #4 he looks much thinner to the point of being almost unrecognizable.
The prior of Dhasam-Bul, who would mostly appear in short stories.
First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #2 "Two"
- Badass Pacifist: Won't harm anyone. Can still defeat Moldrock's superhuman Horde generals, and actually force Moldrock himself to try.
- Black Eyes of Evil: Subverted, as he's not evil.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Then again, everybody changes name in the monastery.
- Limited Wardrobe: All the monks wear the same clothing.
- Trickster Mentor: His lessons are never given directly.
A gangster who lived in the same building as Angus back in New Zealand, and possibly his only friend. He only appears in short stories.
First Appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #9 Short Story "Angus Tales - Background Noise"
- Dreadful Musician: In his first appearance.
- Emotional Bruiser: Under those big muscles, he is just a softie.
- Limited Wardrobe: Like Lyo, taken to the extreme.
- Mr. Smith: "John Smith" was the very clever name he came up with when asked who he was. It was made worse by the fact that two other hitmen were using the same alias there.
- Nice Guy: As nice as a gangster can be.
- Senseless Violins: Subverted: he's the only gangster who keeps a violin in a violin case, and plays it so badly that Angus demands he replaces it with a less lethal Tommy Gun.
Clint E. Westcock
An U.S. Army Colonel, later promoted to General. Often deals in conduct involving Evronians.
First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #6 "Spores"
- Big Ol' Eyebrows
- Cameo: In the last issue of Pikappa.
- Colonel Badass: Enough to force the Evronians to retreat from a town they invaded.
- Commissar Cap: And it really suits him.
- Depending on the Artist: His design varies a lot throughout the stories. In most earlier ones, he is almost caricatural. In PKNA #44, he looks like a more "regular" man, smaller and without any of the physical exaggerations of the previous appearances. In PKNE #1 (from which the picture here is from) he appears quite aged compared to PKNA; a bit less so in PKNE #5, his last appearance to date.
- Four-Star Badass: Gets promoted.
- Named After Somebody Famous: The "E" is clearly supposed to stand for Eastwood.
- Took a Level in Kindness: He was really hard to deal with in his early appearances, almost a General Ripper, but over time his attitude towards Paperinik softened considerably after witnessing both how much of a danger the Evronians posed and the hero's efforts against them. The feeling is mutual, to the point that Paperinik temporarily trusted him with the custody of Xadhoom's memory backup, and in Might and Power, he sends him the information needed to stop the new Evronian menace.
The Raider's son, a character primarily featured in short stories.
First appearance: Paperinik New Adventures #14 Short Story "Here Comes Trip - Fathers & Sons"
- A Day in the Limelight: PKNA #34.
- Ambiguously Brown: Again, takes it from his father.
- Badass and Child Duo: The child to Paperinik's badass in PKNA #34.
- Catchphrase: "Atomic!"
- Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: Trip manages to win a hockey game by changing the events with his cronosail, but then he decides to do it again to win with his eyes closed. His father makes the probabilities change to teach him a lesson.
- Fanboy: After the time they spent together in "Nothing Personal", he became one for Paperinik. He'd like to become an Ascended Fanboy, but his father isn't really happy about it.
- Future Me Scares Me: The Gryphon.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He is a pest and more than a little mischievous, but he isn't trying to make things worse for anybody.
- Meaningful Name: Trip, as in traveling. Through time.
- Only One Name: Which unfortunately means we can't learn The Raider's surname.
- Overlord Jr.: Averted. He actually hopes to become a hero like Paperinik.
- Time Machine: Has a chronosail, but with a limit of 15 minutes.
- White Sheep: He wants to grow into a superhero. His dad doesn't want to hear anything of it.
One of Donald's Starcorp co-workers at Duckmall Center, he's openly antagonistic towards him.
First appearance: PK2 #1 "Ducklair"
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Used to lampshade his jerkass tendencies.
- Goofy Suit: Once had to go to work in a crocodile costume instead of the regular security guard uniform.
- Grumpy Old Man: The oldest of the security guards next to Mortimer Bloom, he's often seen grumbling about seniority and all his years working as a guard.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: After Tempest Gale goes on a rampage and nearly disqualifies herself from the possibility to take over command after Bloom will retire, Fitzroy shows him a tape that he feels will clinch it (one where she talks about her past as a Seaduck). It backfires, as Bloom himself knows how high Seaducks standards are, having once applied himself but gotten rejected. Bloom puts her back on the list of candidates.
- Horned Hairdo: Depends on the artist.
- Jerkass: He treats everyone antagonistically (with the exception of Mortimer, and it may be just to look good in his eyes), creates conflict in the workplace and spies on coworkers to gain an advantage in getting promoted.
- Only One Name
Everett Ducklair's personal assistant in PK2, who often goes out into the field herself. In Pikappa, she is the head of Robolab.
First appearance: PK2 #2 "Just a Little Fear"
- Action Girl: A great shooter that leads her own SWAT team.
- Adaptational Villainy: She is a ruthless criminal in the Pikappa reboot, with no problems in killing people. Curiously, when the timeline is rebooted in the last issue, she is Vendor's chief of security, so she's back to her old role.
- Anime Hair: Although not drawn consistently between issues, her hairdo seems inspired by Konoko from Oni.
- Badass Bookworm: She has a doctorate, after all.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: She's in a business suit most of the time.
- Beauty Mark: Under her right eye.
- Guns Akimbo: Was seen dual wielding in the last Pikappa issue.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: it's mentioned in an extra that her record is 11 shots and a single hole in the target.
- Ms. Fanservice: Especially in Pikappa: the back-up story of #17 is practically an excuse to see fanservice shots of her.
- Smoking Is Cool: Smokes a cigar in Pikappa #18.
- Toplessness from the Back: In Pikappa #17 and #20, we see her get naked from this position in order to change to her battle armor. And the second time she does it right in front of Donald, nonetheless.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: But we'll settle for purple.
Everett Ducklair's right hand man.
First appearance: PK2 #2 "Just a Little Fear"
- Cameo: His only appearance in the Pikappa universe is in the back-up story of the first issue.
- Limited Wardrobe: Probably due to his pratical mindset.
- Meaningful Name: He's really boring.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He seems to be just a really boring person with a word fetish. He can also find out who steals Ducklair-made chips for energy weapons and sick the US Army on them by just checking the expedition records and reporting his findings to the authorities, and play Birgit and Paperinik like violins. Oh, and he can exchange important secret communications with Everett in presence of other without them realizing exactly because of his word fetish. There's a good reason he and not Birgit is Everett's second in command...
The immensely popular mascot of Duckmall
- A Day in the Limelight: He acts as the narrator and viewpoint character of the Duckmall special.
- Ambiguosly Evil: His design is unnerving and his smiling visage is often shown to contrast whatever horrible trouble Donald gets into when he's around his image.
