F.O.W.L., known more formally as the Foreign Organization for World Larceny or the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny, is a villainous international organization dedicated to world domination.


The sworn arch-nemesis of and evil counterpart to S.H.U.S.H., F.O.W.L. is a worldwide criminal organization. Led by the shadowy High Command, the organization is dedicated to world domination, which they are willing to accomplish through any means necessary, from creating monstrous cyborgs to summoning Duckthulhu.

F.O.W.L. was founded by Doctor NoGood as the Foreign Organization for World Larceny sometime prior to 1987. Following the doctor's death at the hands of Feathers Galore, the organization fell under the control of the High Command, who seemingly changed the 'Foreign' in the name to 'Fiendish', hired more agents, and led F.O.W.L. into even more ambitious schemes.

Behind the scenes

F.O.W.L. was introduced in the DuckTales episode "Double-O-Duck", with the F in its name standing for Foreign. This episode and "The Masked Mallard" later served as the inspiration for Darkwing Duck, in which F.O.W.L. appeared as recurring villains with the F now standing for Fiendish. The Justice Ducks series would have featured F.O.W.L. as continuing antagonists of Darkwing and his allies, the Justice Ducks.[1]
