Scrooge's big-hearted, fearless, and dim chauffeur and personal pilot.

Launchpad McQuack is a character in Kingdom Hearts Union χ. He is Scrooge McDuck's dim yet courageous pilot. He originates from the Disney television series DuckTales, making him and Webby Vanderquack the first two characters that debuted in a Disney television series to appear in the Kingdom Hearts series.

Launchpad's power is channeled by the Book of Prophecies to create the Launchpad McQuack Medal.


Launchpad is a muscular, anthropomorphic drake. He has red hair and wears a green baseball cap, a leather jacket with a fur-lined collar, a green undershirt, and white slacks.


Launchpad originates from Disney's television series DuckTales and its 2017 reboot (of which his appearance in Kingdom Hearts Union χ is derived from) as Scrooge's personal pilot (as well as his general chauffeur in the reboot). He has a tendency of crashing anything he commandeers, although he takes pride in said crashes and sees them as achievements. Launchpad transports and often accompanies Scrooge and his group across their many adventures via the Sunchaser, a tan bi-plane (a red cargo plane owned by Scrooge in the reboot), among other vehicles. He also appeared in Darkwing Duck as Darkwing Duck's sidekick; in the DuckTales reboot, this is recontextualized as Launchpad being a big fan of the Darkwing Duck TV series that exists within the show itself.

Launchpad is voiced by Terry McGovern in the original DuckTales series and Darkwing Duck, and by Beck Bennett in the DuckTales reboot.
