Donald Duck is one of the main character of DuckTales.
Donald is a white duck. He's about three feet tall. He wears the black sailor suit he wore in the comics as opposed to his usual blue from previous cartoons.
Family is more important to Donald than anything else. As a result, Donald can be overprotective of his nephews. Donald's temper is easily lost. Donald is also fiercely determined, refusing to give up on anything in spite of the fact that his bad luck sets incredibly high odds against him.
Donald likes black liquorice.
|“||Uncle Scrooge needs us, and we need him. Our family has been apart too long. It's time for us to come together!||„|
|~ — Donald Duck|
When Donald was desperate for a babysitter, he resorted to Scrooge. Donald saw how well the triplets handled themselves in the adventure Scrooge involved them in. He realised that keeping Huey, Dewey, and Louie out of trouble was an impossibility, so the safest thing he could do for them is let Scrooge teach them how to get out of trouble.
When the triplets heard the full story behind Della Duck's disappearance, they too blamed Scrooge. After Mrs. Beakley, Webby, and Launchpad tried convincing Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie to forgive Scrooge, Donald was the first one to forgive him.
When the family had a game night, Scrooge chose Donald for his partner. Though the two argued, they made a very good team and beat Dewey and Webby at everything.

|~ Donald Duck to Della|
Donald and Della went on many adventures with Della. Ultimately, Della had seen so much of the world that she turned to the stars for new adventures for her and her sons. Donald attempted to talk her out of this as it was too risky. Della went anyway and got lost in a cosmic storm. This deeply affected Donald, causing Donald to become overprotective of his nephews.
|“||Get away from my kids!||„|
|~ Donald Duck|
Ever since Della was lost in space, Donald has been his nephews' guardian. Donald has been very careful to avoid any more of his loved ones getting hurt in an adventure. For 10 years, Donald kept the triplets away from Scrooge. Eventually, Donald resigned himself to the fact that the triplets will get into trouble no matter what he does, so the safest thing is to let Scrooge teach them how to get out of trouble.
Donald was very hurt when the triplets all thought Gladstone Gander was cooler than him, especially Louie. Donald was about to give up when Gladstone was beating him in a competition set by the luck vampire Toad Liu Hai (the loser must be his prisoner), but a pep talk from Louie motivated Donald to win.
When Magica De Spell was attacking Duckburg to get revenge on Scrooge, Donald showed significant character development by using reverse psychology to encourage the kids to help him fight the shadows at the Money Bin.
