Villain Overview

Greetings, puny Earthers. I am General Lunaris of the vastly superior Planet Moon. For too long, my people have lived in fear of your Earth hanging in the sky. The time has come for the Earth to fear us. I now wish to speak to Scrooge McDuck. "Smarter than the smarties", eh? Heh. Perhaps on Earth. You've probably just realized that I've taken out your defenses. And you've retreated to the strength of your impenetrable "Money Bin". But as we all know your family is the greatest strength of all. Which is why I'm coming for them next. Lunaris... has arrived.
~ General Lunaris' speech to the people of earth.
General Lunaris: No, you will live in fear of me! I am the mighty! I am the moon, greatest of the planets!
Glomgold: The moon's not a planet!
General Lunaris: STOP SAYING THAT!!
~ General Lunaris' most famous quote as he fights Scrooge McDuck and Flintheart Glomgold.

General Lunaris is a major antagonist in the 2017 DuckTales reboot franchise. He is the main antagonist of Season 2, particularly serving as the overarching antagonist of "What Ever Happened To Della Duck?!", "The Golden Spear", and "Nothing Can Stop Della Duck!", as the unseen overarching antagonist of "The Richest Duck in the World!", and as the main antagonist of "What Ever Happened To Donald Duck?!" and the two-part season finale "Moonvasion!". He is also the posthumous overarching antagonist of season 3, mostly the episode “They Put A Moonlander On The Earth”.

He is the general of the Moonlanders and leader of the hidden city of Tranquility who plots to conquer the Earth in order to prove the Moon's superiority. He is also the former friend and boss and now arch-enemy of Della Duck, Donald Duck and Penumbra.

He was voiced by Lance Reddick, who also played Agent Clappers in Paradise P.D., and Ra's al Ghul in Beware the Batman.


During the events of "What Ever Happened to Della Duck?!", Lunaris and Penumbra first encounter Della Duck struggling against a Moon Mite. But during the fight, he comes to realize that the Moon Mite had been attacking them the whole time because she was trying to find scraps of metal as food for her and her baby. Lunaris was impressed to see Della handle the Moon Mites and thanked her for getting them to leave without any more fighting. Seeing that Della's rocket ship had been ruined, he invites her to come to their home on the Moon.

As they arrive, Della was surprised and infuriated to realize that a hidden city had been on the moon this whole time, with structures made of gold and Lunaris stating that it was the city's most plentiful resource. Penumbra was angered at Lunaris for allowing an Earther to have access to their resources in the city, believing that he had gone "earth soft." Even so, Lunaris reminds her that Della was able to take down one of their greatest enemies as if it was nothing, believing that she had potential to be useful to them in the near future.

Months later in "The Golden Spear!", Lunaris showed Della around the city of Tranquility while also reminding her that his offer still stood for remaining in Tranquility until she was able to fix her ship. However, Penumbra continued to share her suspicions of Della with Lunaris, believing that she had further motives than she was letting on, but Lunaris only assumed she was just jealous of her. Lunaris also explains to her that his father, General Meridian was terrified of Earth to the point where he thought keeping their society hidden was the only way for peace and claimed that he wasn't willing to fear them his whole life while also asking Penumbra if Della truly looks like an actual threat. Seemingly feeling sorry for Della at her needed rest while continuing to repair her ship, he ordered Penumbra to let Della stay at her home until her work on the rocket was complete.

Noticing that Penumbra was still continuing to act hostile towards Della by her back, Lunaris continued to request that no harm must come to Della during her work and that her interactions with other Moonlanders was simply a way of introducing their people to her own cultures on Earth. While on the topic of culture, he also expressed his fascination with the rocket itself after having come across an invention that can take them into space. Later, as Penumbra had started the rocket ship's engines and forcing Della to leave early, Lunaris interrupted their conversation by requesting the rocket ship manual, claiming if they built ships of their own, then, they could still come and visit Earth, to which Della agrees.

Once Della had taken off from the Moon, Lunaris shot himself in the arm with his zapper gun; much to Penumbra's surprise. As the other citizens ask about what had happened, Lunaris claimed that Della had betrayed them all and that she was only telling them intriguing stories to manipulate them into helping her repair her ship. He also stated that Della was merely the wave of a first attack and that if they wanted to outmaneuver them, they had to invade first and build their own rocket ships with the manual he retrieved.

Penumbra later asked Lunaris why he lied to their fellow Moonlanders about Della and replied, believing they simply needed a reason to fight, which was betrayal. With Penumbra fearing for the sake of their people, she questioned whether this plan was a good idea, but Lunaris shouted back, saying that he wasn't going to live in fear like his father did and that instead he was going to ensure that planet Earth feared him.

In "Nothing Can Stop Della Duck!", shortly after Della's departure from the Moon, Donald Duck accidentally ends up trapped on it as she had been, where he is confronted by Gibbous and Zenith, who are unable to understand him. Lunaris then orders the two to seize him.

In "What Ever Happened to Donald Duck?", Lunaris tells the angry mob of aliens that he recently discovered Donald Duck who is accused for spying on the Moon (also calling him a minion of Della Duck to which he calls both of them traitors) showing him in front of the mob. Not understanding what Donald is saying, Lunaris explains that Donald wants to bring death to the aliens of the Moon. Lunaris then mutes putting a golden strap on Donald to keep him from shouting explaining as the aliens continue to declare war on Earth and protect the Moon. Penumbra is then given a badge as the champion for defending the Moon from Earthlings as the mob cheers for Penumbra's victory to which Penumbra explains that this is actually a lie as Donald did not attack the aliens.

Donald is then thrown into prison as part of Lunaris' plan to destroy Earth as Donald sees a poster in his cell room telling prisoners that they cannot escape prison at all. Lunaris and Penumbra walk by Donald as the former explains to her that a fleet of ships to invade Earth is in process of being built as he tells Penumbra to take care of Donald before he causes havoc on the Moon. Penumbra then asks Donald that she and Donald hate the plan that Lunaris is building a fleet of ships to invade Earth as Penumbra gives him a task to stop Lunaris from building a fleet of ships.

When Penumbra takes Donald to Lunaris' private area, she asks Donald to find the blueprints required to build the fleet of ships without letting Lunaris know she took Donald to his area. Donald accidentally enters Lunaris' secret war room which features his plan to invade Earth to which Penumbra explains that Lunaris is planning to invade Earth before Della even arrived on the Moon as the war room also shows anyone who could attack the Moon. Upon accidentally pressing the button activating a golden cannon targeting Earth, Penumbra shows Donald footage of Lunaris using the cannon to which Penumbra then tells him that the golden cannon must be the reason why he needed plans to build a fleet of ships which could start an alien invasion as the fleet finishes building. Before Penumbra could finish instructing Donald to use a radar to give signal to the McDucks that Lunaris is planning to start an alien invasion, Lunaris stabilizes her due to the badge Lunaris placed on her earlier.

On the cannon, Donald confronts Lunaris to stop him from continuing his plan. When Lunaris reveals that he plans to kill the triplets first; so he can destroy Donald's spirit, this proves to be the last straw, as Donald becomes so enraged (also destroying the golden strap covering his beak) that he briefly gains the upper hand on Lunaris in a fight and goes to the top of the cannon to warn Scrooge and the McDuck Family that Lunaris is planning to start the invasion, but Lunaris breaks it, causing him to lose contact with the McDucks. Donald accidentally slips into the cannon and he notices Donald being launched to Earth, much to Lunaris' worry.

In "The Richest Duck in the World!", Penumbra sends a message to Della from the Moon, warning her that all of Earth's defense satellites have suddenly gone down (due to one of Louie's attempts to stop the Bombie) and that General Lunaris is going to invade the Earth and come after her family.

In "Moonvasion!", Lunaris' invasion begins as his forces arrive in Duckburg and begin attacking. In response, Scrooge takes his family to the Money Bin and tells Gyro to activate the Unstoppabomb, only to be informed that it and all their other powerful weapons have been destroyed, with Gyro noting that the Moonlanders' invasion was very well-planned. Lunaris then makes an announcement to the Earth, stating that he and the Moonlanders will make everyone live in fear of them, while also directly calling out Scrooge, declaring that he will come after his family next while landing his ship above the McDuck Mansion. With Lunaris' threat placed, Scrooge and Gyro use the latter's Lil' Bulbs to gather all their allies in Duckburg while Della, Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby scour the globe for more, although, in reality, they are actually sent to find a place to hide from the Moonlanders.

Later, the Moonlanders gather around McDuck Mansion to prevent anyone from entering it, with Lunaris remarking that everything is falling into place before the Moonlanders are confronted by Scrooge and his allies. While the others keep the Moonlanders distracted, Scrooge infiltrates the mansion and approaches Lunaris' ship, only to find that it is actually a hologram. Through another hologram, Lunaris addresses Scrooge and taunts him for falling into his trap, going on to claim that his father taught him about the power of fear; stating that it has motivated his people to fight, fooled Scrooge into letting his allies be captured, has driven Della, the only person with knowledge of her people, away and has also kept Scrooge distracted while he has prepared his planetary engine. Lunaris subsequently lands the engine down onto the Earth, planning to use it to make the Earth revolve around the Moon instead, much to Scrooge's horror.

Soon enough, the Earth begins to freeze due to being pushed out of orbit and Scrooge, unable to think of a plan that Lunaris won't be able to counter, reluctantly turns to Flintheart Glomgold for help. Meanwhile, Della, after being shot down by the Moonlanders and being trapped on the same deserted island as Donald, finds the motivation to try and fight Lunaris thanks to Louie, before she and the others are rescued by Gladstone, Fethry Duck and his giant krill Mitzi. From his ship, Lunaris scoffs at how his father was afraid of the "Earthers" for so long, saying that they are pathetic. Just then, he is alerted to a group of sharks attacking the supports of his engine and Mrs. Beakley loading Launchpad, disguised as a rock, into a giant slingshot. Lunaris laughs at the absurd nature of "Scrooge's" new plan, but quickly reasons that it may in fact be a cover for a more clever one, just as Scrooge rides towards his ship dressed in a Santa Claus uniform. Lunaris confronts Scrooge outside of the engine, declaring that his new plan is embarrassing them both, only for Glomgold to reveal that he is the one behind the plan.

Lunaris is then dumbfounded as Scrooge and Glomgold start to bicker when the latter tries to trick Scrooge into giving him his company back, breaking their fight up by shooting at them and demanding to know what they are planning. Scrooge becomes surprised upon realizing that Glomgold's scheme is actually working, annoying Lunaris even further, just as Beakley launches Launchpad into the engine to disable it and Glomgold's sharks start to eat away at it's supports. Furious, Lunaris tries to run back into the engine, but is stopped by Glomgold, Scrooge and Manny the Manhorse, who begin to fight with him. However, Lunaris manages to beat the three of them, knocking Scrooge down and preparing to finish him off, only to be stopped by the arrival of his family. Mitzi begins trying to topple the engine, causing Lunaris to rush back inside, just as an accident caused by Gladstone's luck makes the engine to topple over by itself.

Refusing to be defeated, Lunaris flies the engine out into space and declares that if the Earth won't live in fear of him, it will die in fear instead, intending to ram the engine back down into the planet to destroy it. As Lunaris begins to boast that the Earth won't be a planet once he blows it up, he is overheard by the Moonlanders still on the planet, much to their horror. In order to stop Lunaris, Della takes herself, Donald, Scrooge and the kids into space with one of the Moonlanders' ships, planning to destroy the engine before it hits Earth.

Lunaris tries to shoot the ship down, although Della and the others manage to destroy most of his cannons, only for Lunaris to trap them behind the engine's boosters, planning to incinerate the ship, Della, and her family. Just as he is about to do so, he detects Penumbra's ship approaching him from behind, which crashes directly into the engine, shutting it down. Infuriated at this, Lunaris attempts to activate the back-up engines, instead finding that their wires have been eaten by one of Glomgold's sharks. He is then met by Selene, who informs him that her brother Storkules is setting the Earth back into place and that his ship is stuck orbiting it, much to his horror. Selene finishes by telling him that he is now Earth's second moon before leaving, causing him to cry out "Ah phoooey!" in defeat.

Later, in the aftermath of Lunaris' defeat, the Moonlanders free all of their captives and make peace with the Earth, while Bradford Buzzard of FOWL, blaming the McDuck family for what had transpired, declared to his FOWL agents that they must dispose of them before they can endanger the world and thus, their operations, again, leading to the events of the third season.


Penumbra: You wanted this all along, you brought her and her ship here, got them on her side why?
Lunaris: Because the others are not warriors like you and I, they needed a reason to fight so I gave them one, betrayal and I got her to give me these with a little good old "earth compassion"
Penumbra: But you're risking the lives of our people aren't you afraid that-
Lunaris: NO, I will not spend my life in fear of the earth like my father, the earth will fear me.
~ Lunaris arguing with Penumbra over his plans to invade Earth.

Upon his first appearance, Lunaris treats Della as a friend, even during his awareness of Penumbra remaining openly suspicious of her. He acts as a character who refuses to live by fear over anyone he considers an enemy, or simply gets in his way.

However, after Della leaves the Moon, Lunaris' true nature begins to be unfold: that of a sadistic, traitorous, corrupted, wrathful and tyrannical general who plans on going to war with Earth. He initially only reveals this side to Penumbra due to thinking that her ideals are equal to his and believes it to be necessary to manipulate his people if it means they will stand by him for his own personal intentions. For example, he made them believe that Della left for Earth as a sign of betrayal instead of peace.

Lunaris is also shown to be very intelligent in nature, owing to his experience as a military leader, as he was able to anticipate and counter any of Scrooge's potential plans to stop his invasion. This was shown when Lunaris built up a ruse to kill Scrooge's grandnephews in order to let Scrooge's guard down, allowing his soldiers to capture Scrooge's allies and activate the planetary engine to make the Earth revolve around the Moon. Because of this, Scrooge was forced to reluctantly team-up with Flintheart Glomgold, as the unpredictable nature of Glomgold's unorthodox plans was enough to catch Lunaris off-guard and foil him for good. Even after his failure to subjugate Earth, Lunaris is proven to be vengeful as he intends to ram his spaceship to destroy the Earth, not caring if his soldiers that are still residing on Earth will die as a result.

In keeping with the main theme of family in the show, Lunaris is shown to have father issues. He was frustrated with his father's way of living in hiding from the inhabitants of Earth, as his intentions are eventually revealed to have Earth fear him instead. This is likely to prove for himself both his dominance among the Earth inhabitants and that the "moon" will be the greatest "planet" of all.

Overall, Lunaris is a selfish madman who has no qualms with destroying an entire innocent planet all in the sake of his delusions, which makes him one of the most evil and dangerous villains in the Ducktales reboot.


That earth dweller managed to defeat our greatest enemy like it was nothing. She could be useful.
~ Lunaris forshadowing his true nature
Della betrayed you. She's betrayed us all. She lured us with sad stories and fabulous falsehoods about earth so that we help her rebuild her ship, then when the time was right, she attacked me. (Zenith: But what about her family, and all those stories?) An elaborate deception! (Palus: But why?) Because she was just the first wave of a bigger attack. She lied to us so that she could get back to tell her fellow earthers that we are weak, soft, primed for an invasion. But are we going to hide down here and wait to be invaded? (Moonlander: No!) Or, are are we going to take these plans that I wrestled away from the traitor as she fled, and use them to build a fleet of ships, and invade them first? (Moonlanders: Yes!) And prove that the moon is the greatest planet in our universe?! (Moonlanders: Yeah!!) We are the mighty! We are the moon!
~ Lunaris lies about Della's betrayal of the Moonlanders, and declares war on Earth. (and also crossing the Moral Event Horizen)
They needed a reason to fight, so I gave them one: betrayal.
~ Lunaris revealing his true nature to Penumbra.
Seize him.
~ Lunaris ordering Donald Duck to be captured.
I believe the words you're looking for are "aw, phooey."
~ Lunaris confronting Donald in his war room.
You won't be sending any warning. Oh, and Captain Penumbra's little rebellion is over before it even began. Thanks to this. A pity... but great victory comes with sacrifice. A few brave soldiers get hurt, but it's worth it for the glory of the Planet Moon. (Donald: The moon is not a—) IT IS A PLANET! More of a planet than your Earth will be once I'm done with it!
~ Lunaris engaging Donald.
Heh, heh, heh. Admiring my handiwork, Donald Duck? You see, most foes would target Scrooge McDuck. They don't see that the key to victory is to take the children out first, to break your spirits. Say goodbye to your precious Hubert, Dewford and Llewellyn...
~ Lunaris confessing his plan to eliminate Donald's nephews.
There you are. Took long enough. You see Scrooge, my father taught me that fear is a powerful weapon. Fear can motivate the Moonlanders to invade your planet. Fear can make the ridiculous people of Earth put their faith in a foolish old man's foolhardly plan. Fear can drive away Della, the one Earther with any knowledge of my people. Fear can distract the great Scrooge McDuck as I land this planetary engine! Uh... Behind you. It's time your pathetic Earth revolved around the Moon! (Scrooge: You'll never get away with this!) I just did.
~ Lunaris taunting Scrooge McDuck and revealing his true plans.
I can't believe my father feared these Earthers. They're pathetic.
~ Lunaris reflecting on his victory.
What the Moon-Devil is this?! Water beasts in winter clothing? Surely it would only weigh them down! Preposterous! ... Is that Scrooge's housekeeper holding a man dressed as a rock? Oh ho, this is sad, even for Scrooge. Unless... he wants me to think that! An idiotic covert for a secretly brilliant strategy! Oh, what am I not seeing?
~ Lunaris reacting to Golmgold's plan before exiting his ship.
Scrooge, please! Whatever this "plan" you have is, it's embarrassing us both!
~ Lunaris confronting Scrooge while mistaking Glomgold's scheme for his own.
I will not be stopped! Earth shall bow to my will!
~ Lunaris beginning to fight Scrooge, Glomgold and Manny.
None of this makes any sense!
~ Lunaris frustrated upon seeing Scrooge's family and Mitzi.
If the Earthers won't live in fear of the Moon, then they'll die in fear of it! ... After I blow up the Earth, then YOU won't be a planet!
~ Lunaris deciding to destroy the Earth, which his people overhear, making them realize that he's willing to blow them up as well and that they've been the bad guys all along.
Ah, there's that indomitable Earth spirit. Can't wait to crush it; like I'll crush your planet!
~ Lunaris planning to incinerate the Duck family before Penumbra's unexpected arrival.
No! I will not be defeated! I've planned for every eventuality! Back up engines, activate! I said activate, that's an order! Why don't you--?! (Lunaris opens the control room to discover one Glomgold's sharks gnawing on the wiring) What the? (Selene appears in a golden light.) (Selene: Hey, Selene here. Goddess of the Moon. Probably heard of me. So, my brother Storkules is setting the Earth back into orbit as we speak. Bad news: Your ship is stuck orbiting the Earth.) Oh, no. Not that. Not...! (Selene: But good news: Congratulations! You're the Earth's newest moon!) (Selene disappears, leaving Lunaris to cry out in defeat.) AWWW, PHOOEYYYYYYY!!!
~ Lunaris' last words upon learning from Selene he's stranded forever in his ship permanently orbiting the Earth.


  • Despite being the main antagonist of the second season, he only appeared in five episodes.
  • A running gag would be that whenever Lunaris says the moon is a planet, someone will correct him and he would fly into a rage. Despite this, he still maintained being one of the most ruthless characters in the series.
  • He calls Earth inhabitants "Earthers" instead of "Earthlings".
  • Lunaris' damaged ship makes a small cameo at the end of "They Put a Moonlander on the Earth!" floating across the sky in front of the Moon.
  • Unlike the other main villains of the series, Lunaris is the only one with no personal connections to Scrooge. He claims to have planned to kill Huey, Dewey and Louie, but this ended up being a distraction to separate his family and weaken his forces.
  • His defeat can be ironic enough. Because of his actions, being stranded in his spaceship at the outer space is similiar to Della being stranded in the moon (even though it was Bradford's fault).
  • In "What Ever Happened to Donald Duck?", during his fight with Donald, He shown to be bald when he takes of his helmet.
