It's I who leads this fearsome crew with dagger, swagger and daring-do.

For the version of this character from TaleSpin, see Don Karnage.

Captain Don Karnage is a crossover villain who originally was the main antagonist of the Disney television series TaleSpin.


In TaleSpin, Don Karnage is a wolf and the cunning leader of a band of villainous Air Pirates, and frequently crosses paths with Baloo. His goal is to plunder Cape Suzette. His secret hideout, Pirate Island, is located inside a volcano somewhere near the coastal city. In the Disney comic Rise of The Pillager Queen, it is revealed his deceased uncle was also an Air Pirate, suggesting he had a pirate upbringing.

Physical appearance

Don Karnage is a wolf with his left ear bitten. He wears a blue captain's coat with red and gold accents, light blue pants, and black boots. He carries a sword (presumably a cutlass) alongside him.


He is an expert sword fighter, claiming in Gates of Shambhala to be a black-belt in it. He is also a skilled pilot, and is very clever, often devising a large array of plans with varying effectiveness.


Don Karnage is a narcissistic, arrogant, flamboyant, and cunning, yet absent-minded pirate who loves to steal treasure but he loves to be the center of attention more.
