Reginald Bushroot (simply known as Bushroot) is the major recurring antagonist from Darkwing Duck.
He was voiced by the late Tino Insana. In the DuckTales 2017 series he was an unvoiced character.
Dr. Bushroot was a very intelligent scientist. He was researching a way for animals to be able to do photosynthesis. But the other scientists bullied him, calling him crazy. About to have and set to use his powers to get money to fund his experiments.
Bushroot later joined the Fearsome Five under the leadership of NegaDuck.the funds for his research cut, he becomes desperate and uses his experiment on himself. The experiment turns him into half-animal, half-plant. With his new powers, he get his revenge on the bullies by killing them (notably the only time Bushroot ever attacked someone willingly),
Although Bushroot is extremely brainy and manipulative, he is also very bashful and pessimistic. All he truly wanted was to people to understand his ideals and what he was trying to achieve. He generally doesn't mean any harm with his plans, yet they tend to backfire terribly on him.
- Ironically, despite being one of the more sympathetic Darkwing Duck villains, he is also one of the few who ever seemingly murdered people.
- He is presumably modeled after Poison Ivy or the Floronic Man who are also scientists who changed into half plant/half human hybrids.
