"Donald Duck is one of the most daring adventurers of all time!" -Webby VanderquackWoo-oo!

Donald Duck is a main character of the 2017 DuckTales series and HueyDewey, and Louie's uncle and guardian, and Scrooge's nephew.



Donald Duck is a very caring, devoted, and independent duck, who loves his nephews as if they were his own children and will do anything to protect them from harms way. Even if it means putting himself in danger, such as when he protected Dewey from the fiery death traps of Atlantis. Although a loving uncle, Donald is very overprotective of his nephews, to the point where he feels uncomfortable leaving them alone for a few hours. Despite this, when he realizes how happy they are when they adventure with Scrooge McDuck he give them the freedom to have adventures with them.

Donald is considered boring by his nephews, but he was actually quite the adventurer in his younger years, teaming up with his sister Della Duck and his Uncle Scrooge on an untold amount of daring adventures. Donald has shown signs of altruism and compassion for others, such as when he, allowed Flintheart Glomgold's henchmen access to the submarine while Atlantis was falling apart.

Although generally kind hearted, Donald has a violent temper that can be set off on the moments of great frustration. Although sometimes Donald temper and protectiveness compromises and he becomes a strong force determined to help his family, this is seen in Daytrip of Doom and The House of the Lucky Gander. So even if Donald can be paranoid and anxious, he can also be very tough and brave.

In The House of the Lucky Gander it stated that Donald is the unluckiest duck in the world, and even though it's true Louie encourages him. That the best thing about Donald is that even through his unfortunate events he never gives up, a quality his nephews respect.

Donald is Scrooge McDuck's nephew through his sister Hortense McDuck, and Donald and his sister Della went on adventures with Scrooge in their youth. On their last adventures something happened and it caused the two parted ways. This led to a ten year period in Woo-oo, Donald found himself forced to call on Scrooge to babysit Huey, Dewey, and Louie while he went to a job interview. Donald was skeptical of even this interaction between his nephews and Scrooge, and later had his fears confirmed when he learned of Scrooge's including the boys on his expedition to Atlantis. However, he eventually realized that that Scrooge could also teach the boys how to be survive tough situations. In the following there was an explosion on his boat agreed to Scrooge letting them move into McDuck Manor.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie

Huey, Dewey, and Louie are Donald's nephews, and as well as being their uncle Donald is also their guardian. Even though they can troublesome Donald loves them unconditionally as if they were his own kids, yet it has gotten to the point where Donald has become over-protective of them. In the events of Woo-oo his protectiveness has went to a ridiculous point, as seen in his pictures of them where Donald help Dewey's first steps while being surrounded by pillows, and when Donald shown to have Huey wear football armor just to be the water boy. Yet even if he goes over board with his parental nature is in the right place, but will become very bold as to throw himself into danger to save them; which shows where he save Dewey from being killed in Atlantis. And even in Daytrip of Doom! where Donald fought two Beagle Boy (who kidnapped his kids) at the same time to save his nephews.

Although even though their family Donald always had a strongly dislike and was envious of Gladstone and his luck. During their growing up together when ever something good happened for Gladstone, something bad happened to Donald; this irritated Donald making him feel like a loser. Yet despite their difference Donald would still help him out because Donald is always there for family, this is shown in The House of The Lucky Gander!

At the end of Woo-oo! when Beakley talked to her granddaughter, Webby and allowed her to continue to go on adventures with Scrooge. Her influence gets Donald to give his nephews more freedom and permission to continue to go on adventures with Scrooge. In Daytrip of Doom! Donald and Beakley got into a fight over house rules. Later Beakley got into a fight with Donald about breaking fire laws, and using up the water bill, causing Donald to order multiple generators for his boat, and Beakley making the remark "He is going to kill himself," and afterwards jokingly laughed. They finally working together when Donald showed her the ransom note that the Beagle Boys has their kids. When they go up against the Beagle Boys, Beakley is impressed how tough Donald is. Later at the end of the episode Donald and Beakley were talking, and seemed to be getting along better then before.
