  • Negaduck is a great villian and better with the other's powers.

    lets see, there's a clown, crash, Darkwing defeats the fearsome 4 easy while Negaduck got away with a power stealin diamond.

    DW tries to get in the super prison the fearsome 4 were sent to by being really dumb villians. in jail, Megavolt in being used as a scarecrow, Bushroot is tending to plants but Lquidator and Quackerjack are bulling him. correction, Quackerjack is scaring him and Lquidator is sure Negaduck will save them.

    DW gets put in jail for shadow puppets....yeah.

    in jail, the fearsome 4 notice his total arrogance but Bushroot says it's not him cause he hasn't insulted him yet.

    Negaduck thinks the fearsome 4 never used their powers for good use and with a jewel he can have their powers. he tries a atempts, the fearsome 4 accidnetly mess it up but he gets in after a while.

    anyway, Negaduck takes their powers and they get really small.

    Quackerjack trying to hit MegaNegaduck.

    MNduck- what are u mad about, u never had any powers to start with.

    Quackerjack-u stole my wackyness!

    MNduck-i did not-crazy right-ok,guess ur right.

    hit Darkwing, MNduck uses powers really well.

    MNduck splits the sea and goes to St.Canard.

    Lquidator-say, how come i never tried that?

    Megavolt-who cares!he's getting away with are powers!

    blah blah blah they team up with Darkwing, stop Meganegaduck and all learn it's ok to ask for help.

    very funny episode, but that's what i expect from Darkwing Duck, Negaduck, and the fearsome 4.

    Megavolt and his geeky elettric obession.

    Quackerjack and his crazy, loony love for prison

    Bushroot is so sweet ans sensitive.

    Lquidator is obviously an ex-salesmenmoreless
  • Negaduck discovers a way to steal other villains powers, so he steals the rest of the Fearsome Fives powers and becomes Mega-Negaduck. Can he be stopped before he destroys St.Canard?

    This is without a doubt my favorite episode, it just has everything that makes Darkwing Duck such a good show. It's funny, exciting and it has a lot of action. And best of all it contains all of your favorite villains: Megavolt, Bushroot, Liquidator, Quackerjack and Negaduck. Mega-Negaduck is sort of a hybrid of the rest and he looks really cool. You might ask what power he steals from Quackerjack? Well, i can almost guarantee you will laugh when you notice it. Now, this is where i am supposed to write any negative aspects about this episode, but i can't think of any deadspots that occured. A perfect episode in other words.moreless
  • Darkwing Duck goes undercover to the Maximum Security Supervillian Prison to find out where Negaduck is hiding after he (when the rest of the FF fail) steals the Mystic Eye of Quackelcoatyl, a magic gem which he uses to steal the abilities of Megavolt, Bumoreless

    I wondered when Disney would write a plot line for Negaduck to somehow gain the powers of his partners-in-crime. He is already so cool- but with the abilities of Megavolt, Bushroot, and the Liquidator he would be almost invincible (and therefore even more cool)! And Darkwing Duck\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Demolition Duck\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\", his pseudo-villianous alter-ego, is truly hilarious. This is one of my favorite episodes by far.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • One of the evil alter-ego's that Darkwing created in order to get arrested by the police, Demolition Duck, appears in the Darkwing Duck comic story arc Crisis on Infinite Darkwings, written by Ian Brill and drawn by James Silvani, as one of the multiple Darkwing Ducks of other dimensions that were brought to St. Canard by Negaduck and Magica DiSpell.

    • Liquidator and Bushroot lost their powers, but kept their altered appearances. Shouldn't they have reverted to their original forms?

  • QUOTES (23)

    • (Quackerjack begins biting Mega Negaduck's arm after being zapped by the Mystic Eye)
      Quackerjack: I'm ruined! Ruined! Ruined!!!
      Mega Negaduck: What are you whining about? You never had any powers to begin with!
      Quackerjack: You stole...my wackiness!
      Mega Negaduck: I did not. (He begins laughing uncontrollably like Quackerjack then snaps out it) Okay, okay. Maybe I did.

    • (Mega Negaduck uses Liquidator's powers to part the ocean)
      Liquidator: Say, how come I never thought of doing that?

    • Darkwing: (they use cement on the water part of Mega Negaduck's body) Yep, yep. Another hardened criminal.

    • Bushroot: How could I trust him? How could I be such a sapling?

    • Mega Negaduck: Bon jour, boneheads. I'm off to wallow in mindless destruction.

    • Megavolt: The incredible Megavolt, forced to waste his wattage on menial labor. Revolting!

    • Bushroot: This can't be Darkwing Duck. He would have called me mean names like Bushbrain and Mellonhead.
      Megavolt: I think Bushbrain is right.
      Quackerjack: Yeah, good thinking, Mellonhead.
      Bushroot: Takes one to know one.

    • Megavolt: Say, you look familiar.
      Darkwing: (in disguise) But of course I look familiar. I'm Demolishion Duck over here. The mighty mallard menace. Champion of chicanery.Vanguard of villainy.
      Bushroot: He's so arrogant.
      Liquidator: So one hundred percent egotistical.
      Megavolt: He's so pretenious.
      Quackerjack: So...Oooh...Squiggly!
      Megavolt, Bushroot, Quackerjack, and Liquidator: He must be.....Darkwing Duck!

    • Liquidator: Look fellas. Another fine inmate brought to you by the St. Canard police force. When it comes to nabbing hoods, they've got the goods.

    • Negaduck: How interesting. If the Mystic Eye can steal that dove's ability to fly, then it can steal the powers of those super powered simpletons. (laughs) Looks like I'm going to visit my old chums in prison after all.

    • Darkwing: (to Bushroot's plant) Back, or I'll nip you in the bud.

    • Darwing: Nothing can possibly get by me. (the Fearsome Five are sneaking in a window) I'm the King of Crimebusting. The Duke of Detection. (walks by the Fearsome Five as they pose like a statue) Nothing escapes my eagle eye. Not even the most miniscule...Hey, how ya doin guys? Not even the most miniscule de...Guys! The Fearsome Five!
      Negaduck: Well, whadda ya know. It can count.

    • Darwing: You stay here and keep an eyeon...Uh...Winky.
      Launchpad: But DW...
      Darkwing: No "buts". I can handle this case solo. Nothing can go wrong. (he lands on the Ratchatcher and pulls a lever and is slammed into the roof and comes back down in the wrecked Ratcatcher) Ouch.

    • Launchpad: Whoa, DW. This Mystic Eye most be really important! Blinky the Clown doesn't make personal appearences unless it's something big.

    • Liquidator: (To Darkwing) Are you stressed? Tired of the pitfalls of superhero life? What you need is an all-expenses-paid trip to oblivion!

    • Negaduck: Megavolt! Bushroot! Cash this do-gooder's check!
      Megavolt: I'm a little low on cash. Mind if I charge it?

    • Negaduck: (After absorbing the Fearsome Five's powers) I...am...Mega Negaduck! (Laughs)
      Darkwing: (Tuts) Somedays it just doesn't pay to get out of bed!

    • Mega Negaduck: I've always wanted to try out my recipe for St Canard stew! (Laughs like Quackerjack) I hate that.

    • Megavolt: I've lost my zap; I'm...microvolt!

    • Negaduck: How sweet. A beautiful dove, the symbol of peace. Maybe I should feed it-to a cat!

    • Megavolt: (About Quackerjack) Look at him. he's nuts, he's out of his tree, completely insane. (Pulls out lightbulb) Isn't he, my wittle bulby-wulby?

    • Megavolt: If there's anything worse than slop, it's cold slop!

    • Negaduck Negaduck crushes all obstacles! (A boulder falls on him)...or vice versa!
