"🎵Cloud of smoke and he appears
The master of surprise
Who's that cunning mind behind
The shadowy disguise?
Nobody knows for sure
But bad guys are out of luck 'cause here comes,
Look out!!🎵"— Darkwing Duck intro
Drake Mallard, better known as Darkwing Duck, is the titular protagonist of the Disney's 1991-92 animated television series with the same name. Originally a DuckTales spin-off, he is a super masked duck who seeks to fight crime so he'll be famous for it. He is voiced by Jim Cummings.
Why He's Gonna Get DANGEROUS
- He is Disney's most underrated superhero.
- His alter ego as Drake Mallard is just as enjoyable as his superhero form.
- He may act cocky and narcissistic, but he is very brave, nice, likable, competent, respective, and has shown to be pretty intelligent despite his clumsiness and blunders. He is also shown to be fallible, enough to the point of making him more rootable than anything else.
- He can also be helpful to others.
- He wants to be loved, popular, respected, and honored like an entitled little child by bragging about what's so cool about him (even when it backfires on him), this is what makes his acts of narcissism rather comedic and hilarious.
- The entrances he makes before doing anything by bragging are very entertaining to watch. Examples of these include.
- “I am the wrong number that wakes you at 3am!”
- “I am the special news bulletin that interrupts your favorite show.”
- “I am the current of vengeance gurgling through your sewer!”
- “I am the clipper that trims your hedges!”
- “I am the last bite in the soggy cereal of sin!”
- “I am the low ratings that cancel your program.”
- “I am the hairball that clogs your drains.”
- Plenty of his one-liners and phrases are also fun to listen to, these include
- “Let’s get surrealistic!”
- “I am the dead batteries in your smoke detector!”
- “I am the jailer who throws away the key!”
- He fights with various important and entertaining villains (mainly The Fearsome Five: his evil twin Negaduck, Megavolt, Quackerjack, Bushroot and Liquidator, The F.O.W.L. agent Steelbeak, Taurus Bulba, Tuskernini and Ammonia Pine).
- He has also an entertaining relationship with them for battles.
- He has shown to care for his friends like Launchpad McQuack, his girlfriend Morgana MacCawber, and his adoptive daughter Gosalyn Mallard.
- Similar to Batman or Shadow Mask, and at beginning of each episode, he wants to work and fight crime alone before teaming with others.
- Despite his extreme delusions of grandeur, he has various reasons to be honored for his heroic and well-intentioned actions.
- He provides plenty of funny and entertaining moments here and there.
- For fans of the show, he may be considered the dumbest hero on the Disney Afternoon by viewers, but he is much better than Naruto, Goku and Sailor Moon when it comes to intelligence since he's actually more crafty and clever than what his egomania and fallibility would imply. Very much like Sylvester from Looney Tunes.
- Alongside Bonkers, Earthworm Jim, and Freakazoid, he's considered one of the most entertainingly heroic lunatics of 90s Western cartoon heroes for their quirky personalities.
- His iconic catchphrase, “Let's Get Dangerous!”, is always fun and exciting to listen to.
- His selfish and impulsive temper is why nobody loves him as a true hero, and then he's against everyone when he wants to be the center of attention.
- He can be considered to be inspired by Donald Duck and/or a Daffy Duck wannabe, with all respect.
- He has a mediocre relationship with Vladimir Goudenov Grizzlykof.
- He is often annoyed by anyone that doesn't care for him when he is the only superhero who often saves the city instead of others.
- He made cameos in some episodes of Bonkers.
- Darkwing Duck appears as one of the supporting characters in Ducktales (2017). To the point of getting his own theme song and a reboot in that same show.
