"Negaduck" is the fifteenth episode of Darkwing Duck, and the third episode to air on ABC. It is also the last Darkwing Duck episode to premiere as part of the show's "spring preview" on the Disney Channel.


Darkwing Duck has been zapped with Megavolt's tronsplitter, separating his good side from his bad. Another zap with the two sides will restore him to normal, but his negative side is certain not to let that happen.


  • This episode is not the first appearance of the recurring villain Negaduck, as the Negaduck in this episode is the result of Darkwing himself being split into two separate entities, whereas the more famous Negaduck (who debuts in "Just Us Justice Ducks") is Darkwing's counterpart from another universe. Confusingly, this episode was often aired alongside episodes featuring the other Negaduck whenever he was spotlighted in the weekly "Chillin' with the Villains" marathons on Toon Disney. Additionally, the Birth of Negaduck! VHS, which contains this episode, depicts the second Negaduck on the cover, even though he isn't actually in this episode or the other episode featured on the tape.
  • This episode's plot is maybe a reference to the Star Trek episode "The Enemy Within".
  • Chip and Dale make a cameo appearance, in their classic forms, on Drake's TV.
