Episodes sorted by Character Appearance

How many episodes are graced by the presence of Morgana Macawber? What’s that one episode with that one obscure supervillain who appeared? You know the one… Insect Master?  What are all the Jumbalaya Jake episodes and how can I avoid them? 

I’ve gone ahead and sorted episodes by character appearance so that you will never miss a Comet Guy episode again!

Note: I am not going to include Darkwing, Gosalyn, or Launchpad in this list because they are present in almost every single episode, with a few exceptions.

The Good Guys

  Morgana Macawber

Whether you love her or think she exists merely to play the role of heteronormative ship-blocker, Morgana Macawber brings some interesting plot devices to the cartoon. Despite her prominent role in the series however, she only appears in 8 episodes.

  The Muddlefoot Family

Honker Muddlefoot

Honker is an honorary member of the Mallard family, even though he technically already has a family. He tends to show up in episodes where exposition is required, but he gets a few shining moments as well. Also one of the few characters who knows Darkwing’s secret identity as Drake Mallard.

  Gizmoduck

Originally created for the original 1987 Ducktales cartoon, Gizmoduck crosses over into Darkwing’s universe and serves as a rather delightful addition to the cast. He only makes a few appearances, but in Darkwing’s opinion it’s a few too many.

  2. Just Us Justice Ducks (Parts 1 and 2)
  3. Up, Up, and Awry
  4. Darkwing Doubloon

  1. Darkly Dawns The Duck (Part 1 and 2)

She only appears in two episodes and is one of the (sadly) few interesting female supervillains.

Appears in:

  1. A Brush With Oblivion (debut episode)
  2. Paint Misbehavin’

 Tuskerninni

Real talk: He’s underrated and is actually pretty funny. If you bother to watch his episodes.

  1. Battle of the Brainteasers
  2. Revenge of the Return of the Brainteasers, Too

 

 

One-Shot Villains

Villains who appear in only one episode then are never heard from again. I shall provide pictures as well, because I’m willing to bet most people won’t remember these characters by name alone. 

Now you’re probably asking, “Anj, why bother including every small-time villain who ever appeared in the series” and the real answer is because I’m hyper-fixating real hard right now BUT also, who knows when you might suddenly find yourself in dire need of reference material for… Major Trenchrot. It could happen!

  Darkwarrior Duck

I mean, he’s technically kinda-sorta a villain, right? I don’t know where else to put him!

Appears in: Time and Punishment

  Isis Vanderchill

She spends the whole episode trying to grope DW.

Appears in:  All’s Fahrenheit in Love and War

  Camille Chameleon

A relatively popular character despite getting only one episode. She’s got a pretty cool concept though, I would’ve loved to see a Camille/Splatter Phoenix team-up.

Appears in: Calm a Chameleon

  The Bugmaster

Also known as Bianca Beakley. 

Appears in: Fraudcast News

  Lilliput

TECHNICALLY he appears in two episodes, but one is just a non-speaking cameo and therefore I am not counting it.

Appears in:

  1. Getting Antsy
  2. Time and Punishment (non-speaking cameo) 

  The King

…and his little brother, who is literally just a smaller version of The King.

Appears in: Paraducks

  Major Trenchrot

Man, I just KNOW there’s somebody out there who is like, “who was that one obscure character in that one Darkwing episode who pronounces banana as ‘bananar’ because I need to write a coffeeshopAU about him stat”. I’ve got you, bro.

Appears in: Apes of Wrath

  Jock Newbody (And minions Flex and Slim)

I constantly forget these characters ever existed.

Appears in: You Sweat Your Life

  Doctor Fossil

He just wants to turn the entire world into DINOSAURS no big deal! 

Appears in: Jurassic Jumble

  Nodoff

The Ruler of DREEEEEEEAM world.

Appears in: Ghoul of My Dreams

  Paddywhack

Voiced by Phil Hartman, that’s all you really need to know.

Appears in: The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain

  Hot Shot & Fly Girl, and Major Synapse

   

GOD, I am so salty that we get ONE fire-themed supervillain in the show and it’s a rando dog-face one-shot character who never appears again! Fly Girl is his partner so I’m lumping them in together along with Major Synapse who is their boss. You will never see any of these characters again (and also one of them dies a rather grisly death).

Appears in: Heavy Mental

  Ordinary Guy

Am I the only person who gets incredibly offended whenever humans appear in the Duckverse? Like, how dare they exist. 

Appears in: Planet of the Capes

  Phineas Sharp

I thought this guy was pretty cool, honestly. Would’ve been neat to see him in more episodes.

Appears in: In Like Blunt

  Doctor Slug

Dr. Slug is not actually a villain who appears in the series as a main antagonist, but he is frequently mentioned in several episodes as a running gag. He makes a brief appearance for one episode.

Appears in: Inside Binky’s Brain

  Plebe

This guy is the reason we’re forced to look at Darkwing’s shriveled testicle-shaped brain with eyeballs attached to it and I will never forgive him for that transgression.

Appears in: UFO Foed

  Master Lee

Not even gonna lie, this episode is a little racist on several levels (which is on brand for early 90’s cartoons). But surprisingly, he plays a relevant role in Darkwing’s backstory.

Appears in: Kung Fooled

  Weasel Lowry

Arrest this man for war-crimes against Herb Muddlefoot!!!

Appears in: The Merchant of Menace

  D-2000 (“Dee Dee”)

She only knew Darkwing for a day and a half but if anything happened to him, she would kill everyone in the room and then herself.

Appears in: Star Crossed Circuits

  Gosalyn’s Evil Energy Beings

You know it’s always gonna be a good time when it’s a Gosalyn-centric episode. Also features a Darkwing-Megavolt team-up.

Appears in: The Frequency Fiends

  Swendlin Swine (Cement Head)

Actually has some neat potential. He later makes an appearance in the Joe Books comics in the “Purple is the New Orange” storyline.

Appears in: Mutantcy on the Bouncy

  Johnny T. Rex 

I have a feeling this guy would’ve returned for more episodes had the series not ended. His was the second last episode ever produced, and the last to air on television.

Episode appearance: Extinct Possibility 

  Nega-Launchpad

Disgusting. Get this man out of my sight.

Appears in: Life, The Negaverse and Everything

  Nega-Muddlefoots

The Negaverse: Better known as the dimension where they turned Herb Muddlefoot into a Leather Daddy. This blood is on your hands, Disney. 

Appears in: Life, The Negaverse and Everything.

 

 

Organizations and Team-ups

Some of these villains have been listed previously however I am including a list for team-ups as well because we all love shipping team-ups. 

   The Fearsome Five

Probably the most popular group of characters due to a combination of entertaining group dynamics and the fact they get shipped together quite often (albeit with Negaduck as the fifth wheel).

Appears in:

  1. Just Us Justice Ducks (Parts 1 and 2)  – debut episode
  2. Life, The Negaverse and Everything
  3. Darkwing Doubloon
  4. Jail Bird

  Megavolt and Quackerjack

The terrible twosome. In the Darkwing Duck show bible they are described as having a “special kinship” and it’s easy to see why once you watch these episodes.

Appear together in:

  1. Time and Punishment
  2. Stressed to Kill

     The Friendly Four

The Negaverse editions of Megavolt, Quackerjack, Liquidator, and Bushroot. They appear in one episode, but much like Nega-Gosalyn they became fan favourites.

Appears in:

  1. Life, The Negaverse and Everything

 SHUSH

A secret spy organization that is so secret nobody even knows what the acronym means. 

J. Gander Hooter

The head of SHUSH and all-around good guy. Seems particularly fond of Darkwing and his unorthodox methods.

Appears in:

  1. Paraducks
  2. Trading Faces
  3. Just Us Justice Ducks (Part 1)
  4. Heavy Mental
  5. Disguise the Limit
  6. In Like Blunt
  7. The Darkwing Squad
  8. Bad Tidings
  9. The Merchant of Menace
  10. The Steerminator

Agent Vladmir Grizzlikoff

Chief Agent of SHUSH and kind of a grumpy gus. Holds a special disdain for Darkwing.

Appears in:

  1. Dirty Money
  2. Water Way to Go
  3. Disguise the Limit
  4. The Darkwing Squad
  5. Bad Tidings
  6. The Merchant of Menace

Dr. Sara Bellum

Incredibly eccentric and incredibly funny. Would prob end up a mad scientist if SHUSH hadn’t hired her first.

Appears in:

  1. Paraducks
  2. Just Us Justice Ducks (Part 1)
  3. Heavy Mental
  4. Disguise the Limit

 FOWL

The Fiendish Organization for World Larceny, which later returns in Ducktales 2017 as a major antagonist.

Appears in:

  1. Dirty Money
  2. Cleanliness is Next to Badliness
  3. Heavy Mental
  4. Dirtysomething
  5. The Steerminator

Steelbeak

Chief Agent of FOWL and one of the more popular villains.

  5. Smarter Than A Speeding Bullet
  6. The Darkwing Squad
  7. Tiff of the Titans
  8. Bad Tidings
  9. The Steerminator
  10. In Like Blunt (non-speaking role)
  11. Time and Punishment (non-speaking role)
  12. Ghoul of my Dreams (non-speaking role)

Ammonia Pine

Another (imo) underrated villain, she can be pretty funny.

Appears in:

  1. Dirty Money (debut episode)
  2. Cleanliness is Next to Badliness
  3. Dirtysomething
  4. In Like Blunt (non-speaking role)
  5. Time and Punishment (non-speaking role)
  6. Ghoul of my Dreams (non-speaking role)

Ample Grime

Ammonia’s sister, who appears in only one episode.

Appears in:

  1. Dirtysomething

 

 

Episodes Without Gosalyn or Launchpad

Gosalyn and Launchpad are part of the core main cast and are rarely absent, but there are a few episodes they are missing from. I decided it’s easier to list those, rather than the 99% of episodes they DO appear in.

  1. Bad Tidings
  2. Can’t Bayou Love
  3. Twitching Channels
  4. Inside Binkie’s Brain

Episodes without Launchpad
