*Dr. Sarah Bellum - A S.H.U.S.H. scientist, whose name is a pun on cerebellum.
*DarkWarrior Duck (Jim Cummings) - A merciless vigilante and alternate future version of Darkwing himself, who conquers St. Canard in the episode "Time and Punishment".
*Neptunia (Susan Silo) - A fish protector of the sea.
*Comet Guy - An alien humanoid superhero with numerous superpowers (shoots fireballs, flies, water freezing, super strength, super speed). However, he is dull witted and has a weakness - can't stop dancing when a bell rings until he hears a whistle. A failure on his planet, Darkwing trains him to turn his weaknesses into strengths. Darkwing later learns he comes from a planet where everyone is a superhero.
*The Friendly Four- were a fairly inept superheroic version of the Fearsome Five (minus Negaduck) native to the Negaverse. Its four members- parallel versions of Bushroot, Quackerjack, Megavolt, and the Liquidator- were retrained by Darkwing Duck into "Darkwing's Ducks" (never mind that two of the four weren't ducks). As this new team, they were able to restore their St. Canard and defeat Negaduck and his thugs. They became the guardians of the Negaverse counterpart of Gosalyn Mallard after Darkwing returned to his reality.
*Posiduck-Posiduck was the embodied good half of Darkwing Duck, created by Megavolt's tron-splitter device. Posiduck was exceedingly kind and gentle, as well as lenient and (generally) pacifistic. He later became galvanized (Becoming purely positively good and friendly nature which Negaduck couldn't stand) to battle the the identically galvanized Negaduck. He managed to combat Negaduck. As they battled, Megavolt reintegrated them into the "normal" Darkwing.`

Villains

*Taurus Bulba (Tim Curry) - A bull; Darkwing's strongest enemy. Taurus has only appeared in three episodes: "Darkly Dawns the Duck" parts 1 and 2, and "Steerminator", which sees Bulba revived by F.O.W.L. as a cyborg. His name is similer to Taras Bulba, the title character of a novel by Nikolai Gogol about 16th century Cossacks.
**Hammerhead Hannigan (Laurie Faso) - Bulba's lead henchman, a goat.
**Hoof and Mouth (Eddie Deezen) - Bulba's lackeys, a ram and a mute donkey. Their names are a reference to hoof-and-mouth disease.
**Clovis (Marcia Wallace) - Bulba's personal secretary, a blonde cow.
**Tantalus - Bulba's pet condor.
*The Fearsome Five (a comedic take of Spider-Man's Sinister Six):
**NegaDuck (Jim Cummings) - Darkwing Duck's Evil twin who is actually a version of Darkwing Duck from an alternate dimension, the Negaverse. This is the second character to use the name. He is the leader of the Fearsome Five, and unlike most of its members, he is highly intelligent. Interestingly, despite being an alternate reality version of Darkwing, he seems to have no knowledge of Darkwing's alterego. Naturally, Negaduck wishes to be public enemy number one. Within the series he took the title as Darkwing's archenemy.
**Megavolt (Dan Castellaneta) - A rat that is able to absorb and manipulate electricity, using it as both a weapon and a sustaining life force. Resembles the Marvel Comics' character Electro.
**Dr. Reginald Bushroot (Tino Insana) - Formerly a duck, now half-plant half-duck; he is able to control plant life. Closely resembles the DC Comics' villains the Floronic Man and Poison Ivy, as well as the Marvel Comics' villain Plantman, with additional influences from Swamp Thing.
***Spike - Bushroot's pet/assistant, a large carnivorous plant loosely resembling a venus flytrap with a shaggy mop of orange hair. He behaves much in the manner of a dog, to the point that he likes playing fetch. He once helped Darkwing Duck and Launchpad escape because he was jealous that Bushroot was paying less attention to him.
***Posey - A "vampire potato," originally intended to be a wife for Bushroot. However due to Spike handing him the wrong ingredients, Bushroot accidentally creates a gigantic potato that feeds on the blood of non-plants. Victims of Posey become zombified couch potatoes, doing nothing but sitting in front of the TV and eating potato-based food products. She appears (and is destroyed) in the episode "Night of the Living Spud".
**Quackerjack (Michael Bell) - A vicious jester with a weird obsession for toys. Probably inspired by DC Comics' Joker and Toyman. His frequent dialogs with a puppet called Mr. Banana Brain also resemble those of DC Comics' Ventriloquist.
***Mr. Banana Brain - A banana-headed doll that Quackerjack seems to always have with him. Not really a character, but the closest thing he has to a recurring sidekick.
***Teddy - A robotic and malicious little teddy bear that served as Quackerjack's bodyguard and henchman for one episode.
**The Liquidator (Jack Angel) - Formerly a dog named Bud Flood (a crooked salesman for bottled water), now a watery villain whose dialogue is usually patterned after advertising slogans. His origin is partly inspired by the origin of DC comic's the Joker in The Killing Joke by Alan Moore.Fact|date=March 2008 Possibly inspired by Marvel Comics' Hydro-Man.
***Liquidator's Girls - A pair of women who appear with Liquidator in his origin episode, "Dry Hard". They were the mascots for Sparkling Crystal Pure Flood Water and later for the Liquidator himself, two women who dressed up as various items (from water bottles to lobsters) and sang catchy tunes that relate to whatever the Liquidator said.

*F.O.W.L.
**Steelbeak (Rob Paulsen) - A rooster; he is a smooth-talking and slick Brooklyn-accented villain who has a metal set of jaws, possibly a James Bond reference, and is a top F.O.W.L. agent. Due to his ruthlessness and intelligence, he is one of Darkwing's most dangerous enemies.
**Ammonia Pine (Mitzi McCall) - An agent of F.O.W.L.; she is obsessed with cleaning things and constantly makes advances towards Steelbeak.
**Ample Grime - An agent of F.O.W.L.. She loves dirt as much as Ammonia hates it, and she can't stand to be clean. Her sister is Ammonia Pine.
**Major Synapse (John Stephenson) - An agent of F.O.W.L.; a tough and strict military man who is in charge of F.O.W.L.'s new (and drastically underfunded) "psychic division."
**Hotshot and Flygirl - A pair of dimwitted, laid-back hippies who assist Major Synapse and gain psychic abilities from the Norma Ray.
*Professor Moliarty (Jim Cummings) - A mushy-voiced mole who schemes to put the surface world into an eternal darkness; his name is a reference to James Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes' nemesis, and his persona may be inspired by Marvel Comics' Mole Man.
*Tuskerninni (Kenneth Mars) - A walrus and an ego-driven but failed Hollywood film director whose schemes are built around films, and travels with a cadre of silent yet efficient penguin sidekicks. His name is a reference to famed conductor Arturo Toscanini, though the resemblance ends there. He is probably inspired by DC Comics' Penguin and Film Freak.
*Splatter Phoenix - A rejected artist known for her pompous speech (in "Paint Misbehavin'", she proclaims herself a "daringly innovative pseudo anti-neo post modern deconstructionist"!), her chief weapon is a brush covered with paint that can allow her to enter paintings, animate them, or even to paint wholly new (and usually surreal-looking) creatures that help her. Along with Major Synapse, she is the only villian to ever 'die' in the series, as she was 'erased' by terpentine.
*Dr. Fossil (Barry Gordon) - A pterodactyl; the creator of Steggmutt. Resembles the Marvel Comics character Sauron.
*Jambalaya Jake (Michael Gough) - A good-ol-boy with a bad attitude. With his pet gator, Gumbo, they make up the "Bayou Bullies", but Gator seems to be more intelligent than his "master". Jake also has a grandmother who makes various potions to help Jake with his crimes.
*Jock Newbody (Hamilton Camp) - An aging bodybuilder who owns the Hale and Hearty Health Resort seeks to extend his life by creating his own Fountain of Youth. He manages to achieve this dream and age-regresses into his younger, fit self to do battle with Darkwing.
**Slim and Flex - Newbody's two henchmen who double as trainers at the health resort.
*Paddywhack (Phil Hartman) - Only appeared in one episode, "The Haunting of Mr. Banana Brain"; an ancient spirit that is held in an old jack-in-the-box. He feeds on the misery of others, and can possess inanimate objects. He can also suck people into the box's strange alternate reality. His name and character might be a spoof of Pennywise from It.
*Dr. Slug - frequently mentioned as a ruthless villain and being public enemy number one, but never appears in an episode in any major capacity. His rank at the top of the public enemy list has been used by Darkwing to taunt NegaDuck.
*Dr. Anna Matronic - Inventor of the Silly Signal, originally built to make her Muttmatics smarter, but instead, it made them act silly. She used this weapon on S.H.U.S.H. agents to make them act like twits in the storybook "The Silly Canine Caper". Anna Matronic was originally intended for an actual episode of the show which was abandoned for unknown reasons; she does, however, make a cameo appearance in "In Like Blunt." She is also prominently featured in a comic story published by Marvel Comics, but for some reason, instead of a female duck as she was originally designed, she appears in the comic story as a human. Her name is a pun on animatronic.
*Phineas Sharp (Jonathan Harris) - Appearing in the episode "In Like Blunt". Sharp, a vulture, is the most evil villain in the history of S.H.U.S.H. It took super spy Derek Blunt to defeat him. He soon returns for revenge, stealing a list of S.H.U.S.H.'s agents and trying to sell it off to the highest bidder.
**Horatio - Sharp's short assistant, a falcon.
*"The King" - An Elvis impersonator who took over St. Canard after Darkwing and Gosalyn accidentally went back in time and changed events so that Drake's younger self joined the King's gang and helped rob a music store, starting him down the road to crime. Appears in the episode "Paraducks".
**Lamont - The King's younger brother, a schoolmate of a young Drake Mallard who often bullied him. As an adult in the changed future he was a member of his sibling's gang alongside Drake.
*Wacko - Appearing in the episode "When Aliens Collide", Wacko crashlands in St. Canard aboard a pickle-shaped spaceship and appears as a small, cute, harmless creature when in fact he is an escaped lunatic out to destroy the universe with deadly weapons called "seismo spheres" (which Tank mistakes for jawbreakers). Wacko has the ability to alter his body structure and become bigger by stretching himself, but an inhibitor collar prevents him from doing so... at least until Gosalyn and Honker remove it.
*The Bugmaster (Bianca Beakley) - Appearing in the episode "Fraudcast News" where Bianca features Darkwing on a special news series to increase ratings. However, there is a lack of villains around due to a supervillain convention so Bianca becomes one herself, The Bugmaster. She decides she prefers the income from robbery and decides to end her special series by killing Darkwing on air. Has a really sinister laugh.
*The Brainteasers - Hat shaped aliens that take over "host" bodies by sticking on their heads. They then completely control the host, give it incredible strength, and use their own voices. They subsist on metal which they force their hosts to eat.
**Flarg - The Grand High Potentate of a thousand planets in the Delphonic Nebula. A ruthless leader who loves planetary destruction. Crash landed on earth and used Honker and Gosalyn as hosts. Attempted to conquer the planet but ultimately foiled by Honker and captured by revolutionaries. Later returned and used Binkie as host in his attempt at revenge.
**Barada - Guard of Flarg who was with him on both visits to earth.
**Nikto - Other guard of Flarg on both visits. Noted for his constant hunger for metal leading to him occasionally consuming important items. Also less bright than Barada.
**Talaya - Female Brainteaser and love interest of Flarg. Broke the other three out of prison with a cake baked into a file after their capture by the revolutionaries. Joined them in their attempt at revenge on Honker.
*Cement Head - After his father fell into a pool of wet cement, he was born a cement mutant. Disowned by his parents he turned to crime and became a crime lord in St. Canard. Seen in the episode, "Mutancy on the Bouncy". Also disguised himself as a pig who was a respected business owner.
*Camille Chameleon - Originally a girl that would never fit in anywhere, Camille spent her time studying biology and became obsessed with Chameleons and their ability to fit in anywhere. She managed to extract the chameleon essence and implement it in herself, giving her fantastic transforming abilities and apparently a tail.

A few notable villains have only appeared in Disney Adventures' various comic stories.
*Fluffy - The Evil Feline Genius; having been granted genius-level intelligence as a result of S.H.U.S.H.'s various experiments, Fluffy desires to turn St. Canard into his own kingdom of cats. Fluffy is especially proud of the homemade battlesuit he made out of old tuna cans.
*Mondo - The Mad Mask Misappropriator; a big-shot hunter whose lifelong goal is to unmask every superhero in the world. He has a massive collection of masks from all the superheroes that he, according to Darkwing, "shamed out of the superhero business."
*Solego, the Chaos God - A saurian sorcerer with nearly unstoppable magic powers from ancient times who was eventually imprisoned within two pieces of mystic jewelry. In the five part story "Legend of the Chaos God", Solego's mind tries to influence others to unite the two pieces and restore his body. Over the course of several decades, the cast of "TaleSpin", "Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers", "Goof Troop", and "DuckTales" are all influenced by Solego's cursed jewelry as the sorcerer tries to manipulate them to reunite the two pieces and free himself. Solego eventually possesses Gizmoduck's suit and uses it to fly to St. Canard, where he finally succeeds in freeing himself. During a battle with Darkwing, one of his magic blasts bounces off a satellite dish, striking the jewelry and splitting it, reimprisoning him. The pieces are sealed within a safe, which is then buried at the bottom of Scrooge McDuck's Money Bin. Resembles the evil sorcerer Kulan Gath, an enemy of Conan and Red Sonja.

Others

*Mrs. Cavanaugh (Marcia Wallace) - The director of the St. Canard Orphanage, who appears in "Darkly Dawns the Duck". She is named after Christine Cavanaugh, Gosalyn's voice actress.

*Goose Lee - An old Kung Fu master who taught Darkwing martial arts long ago. He appears to have been corrupted by money and now spends his days dreaming of opening an amusement park called Ninja Land. He considers Darkwing a disappointment due to Darkwing's use of gadgets and weapons insead of fighting using only his martial arts knowledge. He constantly refers to Darkwing as "Grubworm". His name is a parody of Bruce Lee.
*Dr. Gary and Dr. Larson (Frank Welker and S. Scott Bullock) - Two scientists who worked alongside Bushroot and Dr. Rhoda Dendron at St. Canard University. They were merciless bullies who endlessly tormented Bushroot even after his mutation. Finally they pushed him too far, and were killed by his vines. Despite their so-called deaths they had a cameo in "Going Nowhere Fast". It is possible that they are a reference to cartoonist Gary Larson; they resemble scientists from The Far Side.
*Tom Lockjaw (S. Scott Bullock) - Painfully handsome star (based on Tom Brokaw) reporter for "Soft Copy" (a parody of Hard Copy) who appears throughout the series. Occasionally, Tom's role is filled by another reporter named Dan Gander.

*Captain Big Nasty - A large alien android with an Austrian accent, based on Arnold Schwarzenegger, sent to Earth to apprehend the fugitive criminal Wacko. Because of his name, and the fact he is pursuing the seemingly helpless and cute Wacko, Darkwing and friends initially mistake him for a villain, when he is in fact a police officer.
*A.F. Arret (Hal Rayle) - The ferret owner of a movie studio in the episode "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlatan". Very abrasive and short-tempered, he dislikes it when people mistakenly call him "Mr. Ferret." Tuskerninni was attempt to drive his studio into bankruptcy in order to get at the oil wells beneath it.
*"Webby" (Lorenzo Music) - A cute and innocent spider. Originally of normal size, he was mutated into growing to human size by exposure to the radioactive material called canardium. He bit Darkwing, giving him spider-themed powers. For a time, the innocent Webby was duped into helping Professor Moliarty. Not to be confused with Webbigail from Ducktales.
*Derek Blunt (Peter Renaday) - The greatest agent in the history of S.H.U.S.H., a hawk, and the only person to ever bring down master criminal Phineas Sharp. When Sharp returns however, Blunt is brought out of retirement by J. Gander Hooter and partnered with Darkwing - which he hates, despising Darkwing's gadgets and gimmicks.
