Bushroot is formerly a duck, and now half-plant half-duck. He is able to control plant life in the Darkwing Duck series. Bushroot is a duck scientist-turned-villain who was once a renowned botanist, but his funding for his experiments (grafting the ability to photosynthesize onto animals) was about to be cut. Desperate to prove his theories were correct and the experiment would work, Bushroot performed the experiment on himself and was permanently transformed into a half-duck half-plant creature. He used his newfound talent to pursue revenge on rival scientists Dr. Gary and Dr. Larson who had nicknamed him "Reggie the Veggie." He also attempted to woo Dr. Rhoda Dendron, a comely fellow female scientist, who had previously defended Bushroot from bullies. Bushroot kills Dr. Gary and Dr. Larson, but Rhoda was dismayed by Bushroot's lack of scientific ethics and shunned him when he appeared before her. Heartbroken and more than a little insane, Bushroot took her hostage, intending to perform the same experiment on her, but was stopped by Darkwing Duck.
