"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.

Scrooge McDuck

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. However, Donald eventually came to regard Scrooge as a dangerous thrill seeker following their mission to recover the Spear of Selene, and the two parted ways. This led to a ten year period in which the two had no contact, until 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 safe, and following an explosion on his boat agreed to move into McDuck Manor with the boys.

Mrs. Beakley

Donald Duck knew Mrs. Beakley when he younger duribg his "better" time with his Uncle Scrooge. 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 onto 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.
