Splatter Phoenix is a minor villain in Darkwing Duck, and notably the only recurring villain on the series to be permanently killed off. She was voiced by Dani Staahl in "A Brush With Oblivion" and Andrea Martin in "Paint Misbehavin'."


Splatter Phoenix is a female villain from the Disney animated series Darkwing Duck. A rejected artist known for her pompous speech (in "Paint Misbehavin'," she proclaims herself a "daringly innovative pseudo anti-neo post modern deconstructionist"!), her chief weapon is a brush covered with paint that can allow her to enter paintings, animate them, or even to paint wholly new (and usually surreal-looking) creatures that help her.

She first appears in the episode "A Brush With Oblivion," in which Darkwing Duck and his sidekicks attempt to stop her from stealing the Mona Lisa's smile. This episode features a number of clever parodies of works by famous artists, such as Grant Wood, Salvador Dalí, and Pablo Picasso. Her second (and final) appearance was in the episode "Paint Misbehavin'," where it was revealed that she, like her creations, is actually painted, possibly by herself. In this episode, she was melted when splashed with turpentine.

It is implied by Launchpad that she is actually aware that she herself, along with the entire universe of the TV series, is actually animated/painted by "some higher being."


  • Phoenix is one of the few characters in the series to die onscreen, the other being Major Synapse.
