Darkwing Duck Theme Song

Darkwing Duck Theme Song

The theme song of Darkwing Duck

"Darkwing Duck Theme Song" is, as its title suggests, the song that opened every episode of Darkwing Duck. The song's words and music were composed by Steve Nelson and Thomas Sharp.

Two different versions of the song were made. The first one was a rock-based theme that was used when the Disney Channel first aired the show, as well as on ABC's Saturday morning broadcasts. The second, more familiar version was a jazz-based theme that was used in the syndicated episodes aired on the Disney Afternoon. The jazz-based version was plastered over the original rock-based theme in all of the show's reruns as well as on the video releases.

Daring duck of mystery
Champion of right
Swoops out of the shadows
Darkwing owns the night
Somewhere some villain schemes
But his number's up

(3-2-1) Darkwing Duck (When there's trouble you call DW)
Darkwing Duck (Let'sget dangerous)
Darkwing Duck (Darkwing, Darkwing Duck!)

Cloud of smoke and he appears
Master of surprise
Who's that cunning mind behind
That shadowy disguise
Nobody knows for sure
But bad guys are out of luck

'Cause here comes (Darkwing Duck)
Look out! (When there's trouble you call DW)
Darkwing Duck (Let's get dangerous)
Darkwing Duck (Better watch out, you bad boys)
Darkwing Duck


  • In the English version of the theme song, the second time "Let's Get Dangerous" is said, a deep voice says it while in other languages, Darkwing himself says the "Let's Get Dangerous" line the second time.
