"The Rumble for Ragnarok!" is the fifty-sixth episode of the third season of DuckTales, the fifty-fourth episode overall, and the mid-season finale. It premiered on May 9, 2020.


Scrooge, Launchpad, and the kids travel to Valhalla to take part in a ritual that takes place once every decade of keeping the world serpent Jormungandr at bay. Scrooge wants the kids to see him in action so that one day they can replace him (he does not bring Donald and Della because he does not trust them to work together). They arrive where they are shocked to see that the ritual is similar to that of a wrestling competition. Jormungandr shape shifts into a humanoid form where he once again announces his intent to face Scrooge McDuck. The kids are surprised to learn that Scrooge, as the Miser, is disliked by the people of Valhalla while Jormungandr is seen as the people's champion. Dewey is put off by this as he feels that they should be viewed as heroes.

Meanwhile, Louie steps out to make money off of the fight's merchandise while Launchpad and Huey take over as announcers after Scrooge accidentally knocks out the previous one. Huey cannot fathom the frantic pace of wrestling while Launchpad is able to do so effortlessly, causing Huey to feel like he is becoming the Launchpad of the situation. Scrooge faces off against Strongbeard, a fighter whose beard hairs allow anyone to become strong. He manages to easily defeat Strongbeard, but when Dewey tries to defend him from the crowd's booing, an audience member tosses a chair at him. Scrooge defends him but injures his back.

Scrooge realizes that the kids need to take part immediately and ask Webby to replace him. Dewey instead steps up as Champ Popular with the intent to get the crowd to like him. Due to the next fight being a tag team effort, both go up. Despite Dewey's efforts, the crowd still hates him because of his obnoxious personality and misinformed tastes. They face off against Hecka and her dog Fenrir where Dewey fails to be effective in fighting (he is more concerned with winning over the crowd) while Webby manages to hold her own. Dewey and Webby end up losing with Jormungandr offering to face off against the entire earth team which Scrooge accepts while Dewey solemnly hides from everyone.

Scrooge comforts Dewey as he sees the latter experiencing a panic attack. He admits that not everyone is cut out for being the defender of the Earth before revealing that he called for backup. Mrs. Beakley arrives as Shield Maiden, and she and Webby take on Jormungandr, followed by Scrooge and Launchpad, as Captain Crash, but all four are defeated. Both Dewey and Huey talk about their predicaments when Louie comes in and tells them that the world is ending due to Jormungandr winning. He tells the two that Huey is good at learning from things while Dewey never cares about what others think. The three brothers head off to save the world.

Dewey takes on Jormungandr despite getting beaten severely. When Jormungandr boasts his superiority over Dewey, the crowd begins to turn on him. Strongbeard and Hecka begin to side with Dewey, resulting in the former giving a large piece of his beard to him to face off against Jormungandr. Dewey uses his newfound strength to easily beat him and saves the earth. As he is offered the championship belt, Scrooge heads up to congratulate him and steals the belt for himself. Catching on to the game, Dewey and Scrooge have a friendly face off.



  • "There Goes My Hero"


  • Jormungandr was first mentioned in the episode "Last Christmas!" while Scrooge was describing his responsibilities throughout the years, one being "keeping the world-eating serpent Jormungandr at bay."
  • Huey once again plays commentator for a sports event, just like in "The Missing Links of Moorshire!".
  • This episode reunites Ben Schwartz and John DiMaggio, who also voice Randy Cunningham and Hannibal McFist from Disney XD animated series Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja.
  • Hecka is a reference to Hela of Norse mythology. Her name is a play on the casual replacement of the word "hell" with "heck".
  • The way Hecka grabs Dewey is similar to how Hela grabs Mjölnir in Thor: Ragnarok.
  • The episode's epilogue features Scrooge & Dewey in a friendly face off, freezing on an artist's rendering, similar to the epilogue of Rocky III.
  • In a slight nod to the episode "Maid of the Myth" from the classic DuckTales, Mrs. Beakley is seen wearing a Viking outfit for her wrestling uniform.
  • While stalling for time, Webby refers to her fists as "The Lady Haymaker" and "the Duchess of Wailing", which are the exact same names that Sylvia gave to her fists in Wander Over Yonder. (Co-creator Francisco Angones was a writer on Wander.)
