|“||I am the screeching fingernail on the chalkboard of justice! I am the sour ball in the candy jar of goodness! I am NegaDuck!||„|
|~ NegaDuck introducing himself in the original continuity.|
NegaDuck (real name: Drake Mallard) is the main antagonist of the Disney cartoon series Darkwing Duck. He is the overlord of the Negaverse, the leader of the Fearsome Five and the archenemy/counterpart of Darkwing Duck, who constantly schemes to destroy his archenemy and cause chaos in his home town St. Canard.
Just like his good counterpart, he was voiced by Jim Cummings, who used a deeper and more soothing tone in voicing the character as compared to Darkwing's higher-pitched, more frenetic tone of voice.

He is slightly more levelheaded than his counterpart Darkwing, allowing him to plan his evil schemes ahead of time and set ingenious traps for his enemies. However, he’s easy to divert during the height of action, especially when someone calls out "Look! It's a fuzzy-wuzzy bunny!" causing him to fire his shotgun randomly. One of his favorite tactics is to disguise himself as Darkwing, causing any witnesses to doubt who is the real one. He knows his enemy so well he is able to guess almost all of Darkwing's responses, furthering the bewilderment.
Powers and Abilities
Negaduck runs his team with fear and violence and is so bloodthirsty and ruthless that he doesn't need powers other than his fiendish imagination. However, once he stole a gem that allowed him to steal the powers of the Fearsome Five, turning him into Mega-NegaDuck. In this form, he possessed Megavolt's ability to project electricity, Liquidator's ability to control water, Bushroot's ability to control plants and Quackerjack's wackiness. However, he also possessed their weaknesses, such as Megavolt's vulnerability to water and Liquidator's vulnerability to cement. Appearance-wise, he gained Megavolt's torso and plug hat, Bushroot's arms, Liquidator's legs, and Quackerjack's bells and collar. He would also laugh like Quackerjack.
