―NegaDuck after demonstrating his missile blaster to his cohorts

Negaduck is one of two villains from the Darkwing Duck television series and comic. The first was a manifestation of Darkwing Duck's evil side created by Megavolt's tronsplitter while the second and more well known version is an evil twin of Darkwing from a parallel universe known as the Negaverse. He first appeared as the leader of the Fearsome Five during the two-part Justice Ducks Unite episode.

He was voiced by Jim Cummings.


As the archenemy and "evil twin" of Darkwing, not much is known about Negaduck's place of origin. A possible clue is that he rules the Negaverse, a parallel universe similar to Darkwing's home of St. Canard where evil reigns supreme. He refers to the Negaverse as his "secret hideout", which can only be accessed through a portal within the hollow shell of a papier-mâché cake inside a local bakery in the original St. Canard.

In addition to his own crimes, Negaduck is known to lead a band of villains he has dubbed the Fearsome Five, which also consists of Megavolt, Reginald Bushroot, Liquidator, and Quackerjack. Despite not having any powers of his own, he maintains an iron grip on the group's leadership through his intelligence and sheer ruthlessness and he doesn't like his Minions.

Negaduck occasionally has taken advantage of the fact that he greatly resembles Darkwing Duck by attempting to frame his good counterpart by committing crimes while disguised as Darkwing. This once came back to haunt him after instigating the public to put a price on Darkwing Duck's head and an angry mob mistook him for Darkwing Duck in different clothes. He also takes pride in being known as Public Enemy #1 and was greatly incensed to learn that another villain named Dr. Slug had stolen the title from him, prompting him to go on a rampage in order to reclaim it.


Unspeakably ruthless, horrifically sadistic and completely devoid of compassion and remorse; Negaduck is evil personified. He finds insidious joy in the misery of even the smallest innocent creature, hates flowers, and loves skulls. Like any criminal mastermind; Negaduck's schemes usually revolve around complete conquest of Saint Canart and obtaining immense wealth, but at the very top of his list is destroying his arch-enemy Darkwing Duck. Or at the very least, making Darkwing's life as miserable as possible.

In the BOOM Studios comic series, he discovers Darkwing's secret identity and nearly killed him until the Crime Bots apprehended him. He later met Magica DeSpell and released alternate world versions of Darkwing and brainwashed them into doing evil (except for DarkWarrior Duck, who was already evil).


Negaduck lacks any powers of his own but makes up for it with his sadistic temperament and penchant for destructive weaponry, i.e. chainsaws, flamethrowers, bombs, and even a nuclear missile.


  • As previously mentioned, Negaduck hails from the Negaverse. It is unknown whether DIC were aware of this when they combined the enemies from the first and second seasons of their english dub of the famous Japanese anime Sailor Moon into one group called the Negaverse (who, in the original Japanese version, were originally two separate groups called the Dark Kingdom and the Black Moon Clan).
  • The word "nega" that's part of Negaduck's name is a pun to the word negative. For example, Negaduck is the opposite of Darkwing Duck, his dark side, or evil doppelganger.
  • In Disguise the Limit, Darkwing was turned into an evil twin copy of Negaduck and when the two meet, they have a show and tell of more and more advanced weapons to see who's the 'baddest" villain of them all {this was a parody of a scene in the classic "Rabbit of Seville" where Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd chase each other with more and more deadly weapons}. In The Secret Origins of Darkwing Duck, a parody of the outer space origins of Superman, Negaduck and Darkwing Duck are shown to be cousins who are sent off by their parents in space ships to different worlds; Darkwing goes to Earth and Negaduck goes to a pirate planet.
  • At least three episodes show Darkwing getting the better of Negaduck: in part two of Just Us Justice Ducks, not only are Negaduck's plans to eliminate the Justice Ducks foiled, but he ends up being beaten up by Darkwing as well! In Jail Bird, despite stealing the superpowers of the Fearsome Five, Negaduck is humiliatingly defeated by DW while in Life, the Negaverse, and Everything, Negaduck is trapped between universes behind the universal plug. In the crossover series finale of both Darkwing Duck and DuckTales comic books, Dangerous Currency, Negaduck escapes from a portal to confront Darkwing Duck until a Darkwing confronts Negaduck with the truth that he has no friends which activates a spell on Negaduck which sends him and the other villians back into a portal.
  • Interestingly, despite his ruthlessness, Negaduck never succeeded in conquering St. Canard (although in Time and Punishment it's the insane version of Darkwing Duck who rules St. Canard with a iron fist!) {A 4th season episode would have had Negaduck possessed by Paddywhack who goes up against DW}. He is in the Darkwing Duck video game too.
  • It was shown in Disguise the Limit that NegaDuck wears black boxer shorts with white skull and crossbones designs.
  • Negaduck also has framed Darkwing Duck for a series of crimes: Arson, burglary, hijacking, kidnapping, cat-kicking, insider trading and spitting on the sidewalk.
  • Negaduck is similar to Eggman Nega, a nega version of Dr. Eggman, the villain in the Sonic series.
    • They both use the colors black and red.
    • Both are alternate universe versions of another characters.
    • There are differences, however, Eggman Nega was evil and his alternate self was evil but Negaduck is evil and his alternate self is good.
