F.O.W.L. (The Felonious Organization for World Larceny) is the evil organization in the animated TV series Darkwing Duck and the DuckTales reboot.


The origins of F.O.W.L. remain unrevealed.


The creation of F.O.W.L. and exactly how old F.O.W.L. is remains unknown. At some point after they were founded, they went to work against the espionage organization S.H.U.S.H., who often employ Darkwing Duck as an agent. At some undisclosed point in time, they also acquired high-ranking agents such as Major Synapse, Phineas SharpSteelbeak, Ammonia Pine and the Board of Directors. F.O.W.L. is apparently run by three individuals known as the High Command, whose true faces and names have never been revealed.

One of F.O.W.L.'s early fights with Darkwing Duck involved a plot to steal the oil of the nation of Oilrabia (a plot headed by Steelbeak), only to find their forces defeated by Darkwing Duck and his sidekick Launchpad (though on this day, it was Darkwing who was acting as the sidekick). Steelbeak and F.O.W.L. would once again be defeated by Darkwing Duck when they threatened to stop the Earth's rotation.

F.O.W.L. agent Major Synapse also succeeded in giving himself and some fellow agents super powers but were also defeated by Darkwing. Other notable plans that were also foiled by Darkwing involved getting Steelbeak to turn Darkwing Duck against Gizmoduck, having Steelbeak and Ammonia Pine commit a bank robbing spree, attempting to control the Earth's tides and taking out S.H.U.S.H. trainees who were under Darkwing's tutelage.  Later, F.O.W.L. would be responsible for resurrecting one of Darkwing's most dagnerous foes, Taurus Bulba, as a cyborg, only to find him immediately abandoning them.

In the DuckTales reboot version of F.O.W.L., they are a secret evil organization that watches the world from its shadow. It was first referenced in "From the Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22!". After the events of "Moonvasion!", the society could no longer let clan McDuck keep running loose as they almost cost them the world, and therefore assures that they will give them the last adventures they will ever have.
