This article is about Darkwing Duck's negative side. For the prime Negaduck or the episode, see Negaduck or Negaduck (episode).

I am the most fiendish terror that flaps in the darkest night, I am the skunk that pollutes your air! I AM...NEGADUCK!
―After being galvanized

The Negatron version of Negaduck is the first antagonist from Darkwing Duck to use the name "Negaduck". While the second Negaduck was Darkwing's evil twin from a parallel universe known as the Negaverse, this Negaduck was a living manifestation of Darkwing's evil side. He appears only in the episode "Negaduck", and was also mentioned as "the original Negaduck" in the comic story arc Crisis on Infinite Darkwings.


Powers and abilities

Like the second Negaduck, Negaduck initially had no powers of his own but makes up for it with his sadistic temperament and penchant for destructive weaponry. After being galvanized by Megavolt's tronsplitter, he transforms into a being of pure negative energy which he can direct as energy blasts powerful enough to level an entire building. He also displayed some telekinetic abilities and limited weather control, being followed by a storm cloud everywhere he went.

Role in the series

While foiling a robbery by Megavolt, Darkwing was accidentally zapped by Megavolt's tronsplitter and separated into two separate beings; one good and one evil. Both Darkwings would make their way to Drake Mallard's home where, after causing general confusion among Drake's family and neighbors, Honker Muddlefoot was able to determine what had happened and that the only way to restore Darkwing to normal was to use the tronsplitter to merge the two halves back into one being. Not wanting to give up his freedom so easily, the Evil Darkwing escapes and after causing chaos throughout the city, tracked down Megavolt and tricked him into taking him to his hideout where Evil Darkwing attempted to smash the tronsplitter. During the resulting scuffle Evil Darkwing was zapped a second time by the tronsplitter which galvanized him into Negaduck and with his newfound powers began to lay waste to everything around him. Faced with the prospect of nothing left to steal if Negaduck destroys the entire city, Megavolt joined forces with the Good Darkwing and used the tronsplitter to galvanize him into "Posiduck" with powers the equal and opposite of Negaduck. As Posiduck uses his energy to restore and undo all the destruction Negaduck had unleashed, the two engaged in a battle of power until they were close enough together to be zapped a third time with the tronsplitter, re-merging them both back into one being.


  • This Negaduck initially resembled Darkwing Duck almost exactly, with the only visible difference being a bushier pair of eyebrows. Eventually his colors change to an inverted black and white color scheme to further differentiate himself from Darkwing.
  • Despite this Negaduck being a different character from the later one, the cover to the VHS release of the episode depicts him as the more famous Negaduck. Additionally, the trading card for Negaduck that came with the VHS, which clearly used a picture of the second Negaduck and even mentioned the Negaverse being his homeworld, gave him this character's backstory. Further adding to the confusion, whenever Negaduck was spotlighted in Toon Disney's "Chillin' With the Villains" marathons, the episode featuring this Negaduck was often shown alongside episodes with the other Negaduck.
  • He has the unofficial name of Negatron Negaduck from the fanbase to distinguish him from the second version.
