An A.I. recording of Ludwig von Drake survived the original's death in the 2017 Continuum.


A computer recording of Ludwig von Drake's mind and personality, this program of questionable sentience controlled the original security system of the Von Drake Doomsday Vault, walking from screen to screen as he guided visitors through the traps the flesh-and-blood Ludwig had designed. It is unclear if he was retired after the security system was upgraded by Scrooge McDuck in 2019.

Behind the scenesEdit

This version of Ludwig von Drake appears in the 2019 DuckTales 2017 episode Raiders of the Doomsday Vault.

The recorded Ludwig's status is never clarified; while it appears at first that it is just a series of live-action clips filmed by the original Ludwig, each playing if certain circumstances arise, the Ludwig behind the screen is at several points seen to react to what is going on on the other side of the glass. A possibly-sentient mind recording is the simplest explanation, but there is also a fan theory that Von Drake faked his death and actually monitors the Vault live, posing as a series of recordings.
