Villain Overview

Ooh, look at me, I'm shaking like a leaf.

I'm really not sinister, just misunderstood.
~ Bushroot

Reginald Bushroot, also known simply as Bushroot, is a major antagonist from Darkwing Duck.

In Darkwing Duck, he was voiced by the late Tino Insana.


Dr. Bushroot was a very intelligent scientist. He was researching a way for animals to be able to perform photosynthesis. But the other scientists bullied him, calling him crazy. 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). 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.


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.
  • He’s the first Darkwing Duck villain.
