    A better than Average epsiode in which Hero goes insane with LAW and Order. Interestingly its the INSANE DW who takes over St canard not the criminal Negaduck.
  • Darkwing is pursuing Quacker Jack and Megavolt and refuses to let Gosselyn come along. She of course goes and gets stuck to the Time Top and is travels to a pristine future and the biggest crime is not flossing. Darkwing Duck is now Darkwarrior Duck.moreless

    This is my favorite episode!

    This is a different type of episode that, of course, that making people do that right thing is as wrong as letting everyone get away with everything. The people of Saint Canard live with the 'freedom' of knowing that they can walk home safely at night (as long as it before 9 o'clock) and even sleep with their doors unlocked (if they wish), but they fear of doing the wrong thing themselves. They are forced to go to bed before 9 o'clock, eat healthy, floss and leave those annoying tags on their pillows or they'll be sent to prison with no trail and release date.

    Darkwing, become so obsessed with making world a better place, in memory of Gosselyn, he made a place that she couldn\'t live in. Of course in the end his love for her enables her to go back and change the world for the better.

    It's a little sappy, but I like it.moreless
  • Gosalyn travels to the future with Megavolt and Quackerjack only to find out that Darkwing Duck has gone mad. Darkwing Duck is no more, Darkwarrior Duck is the new crimefighter.

    Yes, this was another superb episode(but i say that abot almost every episode in this great series, so what's the deal?). It was really dark at times, especially the scene where Darkwing is about to shoot Gosalyn. And at the same time it managed to be funny all through. Who can forget the scene where Darkwing wants to travel back in time changing the laws and punish even the tiniest of "crime" with death-penalty. My second favorite episode, only beaten by Jail Bird.moreless
  • The Darkwing of the future is now Darkwarrior Duck.

    Gosalyn accidentally gets caught up in Quackerjack's Time Top when he and Megavolt go to the future to wreck have and steal futuristic items. Once they get to the future, they find that St. Canard is now under the protection of Darkwarrior Duck. It seems that Gosalyn's disappearance caused Darkwing Duck to change his way of dealing with crime into a very harsh and unforgiving way. Gosalyn knows that she must return to the past to stop this future from becoming a reality. She has to enlist the help of the future Launchpad, Megavolt and Quackerjack. They are confronted by Darkwarrior Duck and...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • DarkWarrior 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. On a side note, he is also the only Darkwing that did not need to be brainwashed by Magica in order to be abducted from his home dimension.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • DarkWarrior: (In a tank and through loudspeaker) I am the terror that hunts in the night
      Gosalyn: (On rooftop) Dad
      DarkWarrior: I am the jackal that gnaws at your bones
      (Jaywalker tries to slink away and DarkWarrior Duck fires a warning shot)
      DarkWarrior: I'm not finished. I am DarkWarrior Duck

    • Gosalyn: What'd all these people do to get locked up?
      Launchpad: Ah, the usual stuff. Traffic violators, lawyers, plumbers, rude supermarket clerks, cartoon producers.
      Gosalyn: (Points to an old lady in a rocking chair) Who's that?
      Launchpad: Mrs. Mildew. She flunked DW in penmanship.
      Gosalyn: Well, at least he has some sense of justice left.

    • Megavolt: Let me out. I'll make him sizzle like spit on a griddle.
      Quackerjack: Ooh, aren't we sounding folksy.

    • Megavolt: But traveling through time could put a hole in the space-time continuum, wreak havoc with history, inalterably change the past, present, and future forever! Actually, it sounds kinda fun.

    • Darkwing: You should have been home in bed hours ago.
      Gosalyn: And walk out on The Viper Zombies from Wormwood Creek movie marathon? Not in this universe. Heck, I wouldn't miss the scene where the chainsawing cannibals beg for mercy from the slimy mutant slugs.
      Launchpad: Uh, gee, this popcorn isn't half as tasty as it was a second ago.

    • Gosalyn: You haven't even asked why I haven't grown.
      Darkwarrior: I assumed it was the junk food!

    • Gosalyn: Now, what's going on around here? The city looks like it's just been washed and waxed, the streets are deserted, and Dad's acting like Nobrain the barbarian. Boy, I slip away for a couple of decades, and the whole town goes down the tubes!

    • Gosalyn: And I used to gripe when he sent me to my room.

    • DarkWarrior Duck: I am the terror that hunts in the night. I am the jackal that gnaws at your bones.

    • Darkwing: I am the batteries that are not included.

  • NOTES (2)

    • DarkWarrior Duck is most likely a reference to or parody of the future Batman portrayed in The Dark Knight Returns, where an older and embittered Batman viciously and ruthlessly deals out his own brand of justice to evildoers.

    • Steelbeak, Ammonia Pine, Liquidator, Bushroot, Moliarty, and Lilliput make a brief cameo appearance during Launchpad's flashback.
