~ Scrooge McDuck

Scrooge McDuck is a character from Disney and the main protagonist of the DuckTales series. He appeared in the 73rd episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Scrooge McDuck VS Shovel Knight, where he fought against Shovel Knight from the video game of the same name.


The uncle to Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck was born to a poor Scottish family and lived a relatively normal life until his 10th birthday, where his father had taken him to see the remains of the old McDuck clan castle.

Inspired by the sight of the McDuck clan's former glory, Scrooge took up a job where he had earned his first coin: his number one dime. However, Scrooge soon discovered that his dime was an American coin, which was rendered useless, due to the fact that he was in Scotland.

Having felt cheated, Scrooge decided to move to America where he would build his fortune by being smarter than the smarties and tougher than the toughies, all while venturing around the world to search for countless treasures.
