As long as you can talk, you can talk your way out. Trademark Louie Duck.

–Louie

Llewellyn ”Louie" Duck is one of the nine main protagonists, the son of Della Duck and the youngest of Donald Duck's nephews.

Description

Louie, the youngest triplet, has a knack for charming his way into, though not always out of, danger. "The Mouth" has Uncle Scrooge's head for wild, larger-than-life moneymaking schemes, but none of Scrooge's work ethic. His keen improvisational skills are a welcome asset on any given adventure, although they sometimes land the family in even bigger trouble.

Appearance

Louie is a small white preteen duck with a green hoodie and his hair curved to the side.

Personality

As been described as the 'evil' triplet, Louie is a laid-back, resourceful trickster and is he is always up for an adventure with his family especially if it involves treasure. Louie can be very greedy, and like his great uncle Scrooge, he's got an eye for money and treasure. Although Louie has shown a lazy and careless personality, he can also be adventurous and caring at times.

Louie is a schemer, with his confidence, clever quick thinking, and persuasive charm he manipulates others to get want he wants, as seen in "Daytrip of Doom!" and in "The Great Dime Chase!". With this, Louie can be seen with a con-artist persona.

Louie is very often the snarky, witty, and sarcastic one of the triplets as seen in "The Most Dangerous Game...Night!" where he pointed out to Scrooge how every treasure would end in the same way with being amazed but later would lead to more danger because of the booby trap that every treasure they'd found had. Other examples being in "Woo-oo!", where he criticized both of his brothers for their obvious ignorance; when Donald asked where Dewey was and Huey said: "Who's Dewey?" and being snarky about Dewey's best plan of getting out of a room was to keep hitting the doorknob with a bag of marbles. He even seems to keep his witty nature in the face of danger, such as in "Daytrip of Doom!" where his brothers, Webby, and he were locked in a freezer and was being threatened by Big Time.

Louie can also be very selfish and greedy. Louie does a lot that he knows would benefit him, like receiving money and treasure. Louie believes that most adventures include treasure, but if there is nothing to benefit him, he steps out like in "The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest!" where once he's told there was no treasure on Mt. Neverrest he walks out on the adventure.

Louie has also shown to be inconsiderate, as he's shown to say insensitive things like in "Daytrip of Doom!" where he states they shouldn't have brought Webby to Funzo's right in front of her. And he did the same thing in "The House of the Lucky Gander!" when he calls his Uncle Gladstone their Best Uncle in front of his Uncle Donald who has raised him since they were young. Although, Louie later realized how hurtful he was and then cheers them on.

Despite his self-serving nature, Louie cares deeply about his family. In "The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest!" he defends Launchpad after he was conned. And when Donald was racing against his cousin, he encouraged Donald to keep going and not to give up. As well as in "The Other Bin of Scrooge McDuck!" where he was using his scheming to get rid of a deceptive "Tenderfeet" and keep his family safe.

In the episode "The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra!", it is revealed that his cool and slacker attitude is all a facade and that he is a scared little kid who tries to talk himself out of situations, only to get himself into more trouble and acknowledges the error of his actions. This shows that he is insecure and cowardly, and puts up a laid-back bravado as a means to hide his true feelings.

Skills and Abilities

With his con-artist personality, Louie's strongest suit is in his fast nature.

  • Creativity and ingenuity: He's resourceful like Huey, but he's incredibly lazy and unmotivated. In "The Most Dangerous Game...Night!" Scrooge ensures Louie that he has a gift for being well calculated; to find the angles and short cuts to figuring out a well-constructed plan.
  • Improvisation: Louie uses his quick-wit, resourcefulness, and charm to get out of a tough situation as seen in "Daytrip of Doom!" and "The Great Dime Chase" (sometimes it doesn't work out though like in "The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra!"). Louie also uses this to expose another con artist in "The Impossible Summit of Mt. Neverrest!" when he finds out that Launchpad was tricked into buying expensive gear.
  • Good for business: part of Louie's obsession with becoming rich stems from wanting to have an easier life, opens its own associated funds.
  • Social skills: Possessed of a cunning mind and the best social skills of his brothers and group, Louie has a knack for dodge people and persuade them, when he convinces Webby to lie in "Woo-oo!".
  • Professional Liar: Louie is known for to be pathological liar, who sometimes comes in handy to get him out of compromises and problems.
  • Imitation: In the episode "GlomTales!", Louie was able to do a perfect imitation of his brother Huey, both physically and verbally.
  • Manipulation:
  • Unison voice: Ability to speak at the same time. The triplets do this - albeit unintentionally in "The Beagle Birthday Massacre!".
  • Scheme Specialist:

Relationships

Family

Huey Duck

Huey is Louie’s oldest triplet brother (by 6 seconds), and they are very different. In fact they seem to be the opposite; where Huey is hard-working, honest, and rigid, while Louie is lazy, sly, and goes with the flow. Yet, they are very close as brothers and always stick together. Despite their differences, they both hang out with each other the most, as they love to plan out everything, whether it's a checklist (in Huey's case) or a scheme (in Louie's case).

Dewey Duck

Dewey is Louie's immediate older triplet brother (by 3 seconds). They're very playful, mischievous and enjoy hanging out and going on adventures together. When speaking about one of the his brothers, specifically when complaining or insulting one of them, he normally chooses Dewey. Often times Louie wouldn't rely on him for helping with his schemes, but Dewey's assistance in "Louie's Eleven!" by defeating Falcon Graves and his crew with a yo-yo distraction leads him to believing he truly can give him a hand with his future ideas.

Della Duck

Della is Louie's mother, after finding out about her disappearance Louie along with his brothers were deeply heartbroken. After "The Shadow War!", they all moved back into the mansion and holding Della in their hearts. Although in "The Most Dangerous Game...Night!", Della's tragedy has taken a toll on Louie by becoming scared of adventuring and unsure of his as an adventurer. In "Nothing Can Stop Della Duck!", Louie eventually meets Della for the first time. At first, he thinks Della is an illusion created by Magica. Louie seemed reluctant to accept her as a mother until she saved him from the Gilded Man's rampage.

Their bond hit a snag in "Timephoon!" where Louie's time-travelling scheme to acquire historically lost treasures nearly doomed everyone and Della finally put her foot down and scolded Louie for his greed and selfishness while Louie threw a barb at his mother for how her own recklessness got her lost for so many years. Della then grounds Louie and declares his "company", Louie incorporated, done before sending the grumbling Louie to his room.

Donald Duck

Donald is Louie's uncle and guardian/father figure for most of his life, and even though Louie doesn't think of him as cool, he still loves him regardless. This is well shown in the episode "The House of the Lucky Gander!" where he claims that Gladstone Gander, is their best (non-rich) Uncle, excluding Donald in front of him, creating a jealous Donald. However, Louie realized Donald is the better uncle because of his heart and perseverance, he then cheers him on through the rest of the race.

Scrooge McDuck

Scrooge McDuck is Louie‘s great-uncle, Louie cherishes his great uncle and holds him up in high regard especially since he's rich, and loves him back yet Scrooge has shown to be a bit short with him. In the episode "The Great Dime Chase!" Scrooge is shown to be annoyed by Louie's lazy and spoiled attitude, that it made Scrooge want to teach him that hard honest work is the most rewarding. Louie seems to regard Scrooge's wealth and possessions as his own by association and has no qualms about exploiting it.

Gladstone Gander

Louie initially idolizes Gladstone because of his natural good luck, which allows him to continuously receive good fortunes and attain money without ever putting any real work into it. during "The House of the Lucky Gander!" Louie is further impressed at Gladstone's charms when he strikes it big at the casino, but Gladstone also reveals to show little care for bonding with Louie after it's revealed his main intentions were on Donald and his bad luck. This leads Gladstone to unknowingly leave a bad impression on himself in the eyes of Louie, as Louie not only encourages Donald to beat him in a racing challenge to save him and the rest of the family over Gladstone, but he also considers luck to be an overrated concept by the end of their adventure.

Friends

Webby Vanderquack

In "Woo-oo!", Webby attacks him and his brothers, Louie thought of Webby to be weird but also interesting and they turn into good friends. Though in "Daytrip of Doom!", Louie sees Webby as a handful and even states this in front of her, yet he later accepts her quirkiness and they become better friends. Although in "The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra!", Louie and Webby were stuck together and had to escape the many dangers of the tomb of Toth-Ra. Webby gets irritated by Louie for always seeking to manipulate situations to his own benefit, but they later resolve their issues and help each other out.

Lena Sabrewing

Even though Louie knows little about Lena, he does like her regardless. Although, when they first met, Lena jumped him and scared him. Later, when she tricked the entire Beagle family, he admires her slick wits and Louie even called her his "new favourite".

Goldie O'Glit

In "Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake!", Louie turned to Goldie to learn more of conning and swindling from her after she finds out he was invited to the birthday party of Doofus Drake (where the goodie bags are literally bags of treasure, artifacts, and money). They impress each other and even bond a little though Goldie still winds up conning Louie even after he helped her out. Though, unbeknownst to Louie, Goldie put Louie's picture into her wallet, right next to a picture of Scrooge, indicating she does have a sincere fondness for him.

Doofus Drake

When meeting on "Day of the Only Child!" Louie and Doofus are very much the same. They both are rich, they both love doing what they want, and both are lazy. But when Louie finds out that Doofus is mad with power and money, he wants to leave. He is warned by Doofus's parents to not go against him. Eventually, Louie and his brothers escape, never wanting to be with him again. It has also been said in "Treasure of the Found Lamp!", that Doofus had originally used the lamp as a syrup boat for his "One Man Flapjack Jamboree", but then threw it away after it became empty and had his Father, or his butler, use his hands as his syrup boat to pour the syrup onto his flapjacks.

B.O.Y.D.

Louie first met B.O.Y.D. in "Happy Birthday, Doofus Drake!" When he was created by Mark Beaks in order to attend Doofus's birthday party to get the gift bags. When he and Goldie find out that B.O.Y.D. is a robot, Louie exposed him in front of Doofus, causing him to short circuit into the pool and Beaks to get eliminated. After this, Doofus forced B.O.Y.D. to kill Louie by using him as a pinata until Goldie saved him. In the end, when she was kidnapped by Doofus as his new Geememama, B.O.Y.D. helped Louie save her and he gave him to Doofus as a baby brother for his birthday, much to his dismay. It is possible that Louie and B.O.Y.D. may be best friends in the future.

Owned businesses

Louie, looking up to Scrooge before he knew his uncle, wanted to become the next richest duck in the world. After meeting Scrooge, he wants to be a billionaire just like him, still wanting to live out his dream. After "The Most Dangerous Game...Night!", he has gifted the Idol from Scrooge and creates Louie Inc. After this, during "Storkules in Duckburg!", the Harpies have followed Storkules from Maceduckia and cause a problem for Duckburg. As everyone else panics, Louie, Webby and Huey all agree to save Duckburg from the Harpies, but Louie has one condition; he has to make money off of it. Then, he creates Harp-B-Gone, the company that gets rid of Harpies. At the end of the episode, Louie realizes that the business was flawed. Scrooge then comes back realizing that Louie's business failed and shows him the only can of McDuck Lemonade. Seeing the Harpies love lemons in any form, Scrooge and Louie use them to open the full company of McDuck Lemonade. In "GlomTales!", Louie scammed all the other villains to hand over and poll over all of there money to win a bet Flintheart Glomgold started with Scrooge in "The Ballad of Duke Baloney!"  but they lost all the money to Louie because Flintheart used a fake identity. Winning everyone's money, Louie became the richest duck in the world. In "The Richest Duck in the World!" he ran Louie Inc in his own, spoiled way. Realizing his errors, Louie gave the company and money over to his great uncle Scrooge, stating he isn't ready to be a businessman yet.

    • "Llewellyn" is Welsh for "Leader" or "Lion-like".
      • Additionally "ll" is one letter in Welsh, and it makes a mixture of a "hu" and "th" sound. So technically, it would be pronounced something like "Hue-ellen".
  • Louie's voice actor, Bobby Moynihan, has done many other voice acting roles including in Nature Cat, Descendants, and We Bare Bears, but he is best known for his 8 season(s) performance on the NBC sketch comedy Saturday Night Live.
