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


Donald Fauntleroy Duck is a reoccuring character from the original show in 1987 , but is a more active member of the main characters in the reboot.

Personality

Donald Duck is a very caring, devoted, fiery and independent duck who takes responsibility for his sister's kids as their guardian and gives them love and protection as if they were his own children, doing anything to protect them from harm's way.

Donald is very overprotective of his nephews, to the point where he feels uncomfortable leaving them alone. Before the nephews met Scrooge McDuck, Donald never let then venture far and always kept a close eye on them since they usually sneak away; as seen in the comic 'The Chilling Secret of the Lighthouse'.

Yet once when he realizes how happy they are when they adventure with their great-uncle Scrooge McDuck in the pilot episode, Donald gives them the freedom to have adventures with Scrooge.

Which shows Donald altruism and compassion for others, whether it's through being there for his family or others, Donald stops to lend a hand. Such as when he allowed Flintheart Glomgold's henchmen access to the submarine while Atlantis was falling apart. Even though they tried to harm his family, Donald still does the right thing and help them to prevent their death. He does the same thing in The House of the Lucky Gander where he tries to help his cousin Gladstone despite the fact Gladstone frustrates him a lot.

Donald is a very honest and straight-forward person, as when something is unfair or has angered him he is the one to express his honest opinion on it. Which also shows that he very passionate, as he doesn't hold back to express his fury and love. This has gotten him into trouble, but through it all Donald doesn't let anyone push him around. This is well displayed in Daytrip of Doom, where Donald wishes for Mrs. Beakley telling him what to do, in turn showing his stubbornness.

Although Donald is generally well-meaning, he has a violent, explosive temper that can be set off on the moments of frustration, as well brought in when he's impatient. Especially since nothing goes his way.

Although sometimes Donald temper and protectiveness has compromises, in which makes Donald a strong force determined to help his family, this is seen in Daytrip of Doom and The House of the Lucky Gander.

In The House of the Lucky Gander it stated that Donald is the unluckiest duck in the world, which has always made things hard for him all the time; as most things never go his ways and even gets him injured.

Although even though all his misfortunes, Louie states the best thing about Donald is that he never gives up. Always persistence never quitting through all misadventures making him a survivor, a quality his nephews' respect.

Through all Donald emotional tendency of affection, protectiveness, and fury, Donald is also very insecure, as nothing comes easy for him and the opinion of others can him can drag in to being depressed. This is well shown in The House of the Lucky Gander, where Donald bad luck bring him down while his cousins Gladstone good luck gives him everything making Donald feels like a loser. This discouraged Donald more when his nephews favors Gladstone and Scrooge more than him, making him feeling hurt and belittled.

Yet despite his shortcomings, Donald's positivity and loyalty shines when he gives his all for the ones he loves.

Skills and Abilities
