Description[edit | edit source]
This version of Glomgold is an overweight duck with a passion for coming in first and for complicated schemes. Born in South Africa as Duke Baloney, he started out as a shoeshine boy much like Scrooge, only for a passing Scrooge's attempt to inspire him by giving him a "first dime" of his own to backfire spectacularly. Spurned, Baloney stole from Scrooge and became a ruthless businessman hellbent on bestin Scrooge at his own game, taking on the name Flintheart Glomgold and a "Scottishest of the Scottish" image to rip off Scrooge's. His self-proclaimed company motto is "Take an idea… make it your own!". Glomgold suffers from an almost pathological inability to get over the tiniest grudge, making up grand plans for over-the-top assassinations whenever anyone annoys him.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Though his real name is based on that of the Duke of Baloni, as may be the fact that in his undisguised appearance he has pitch-back hair, but he otherwise has little in common with the Duke.
