Derek Blunt was the most legendary secret agent employed by SHUSH, author of twenty-three novels (including Live and Let Spy and Goldfeather), sixteen of which were adapted into motion pictures, and inspired an entire toy line. He was the only agent in the history of SHUSH to capture the villainous Phineas Sharp, and he prided himself on having done so without the use of any gadgets or gimmicks. When Sharp escaped from prison and stole the master list of SHUSH agents, J. Gander Hooter called Blunt out of retirement and partnered him with Darkwing Duck, much to the elder agent's disgust. Initially spiteful of one another (Blunt of Darkwing because of his overreliance on gadgets and Darkwing of Blunt because of his "phobia of modern technology"), the two eventually learned to get along after Darkwing saved them both from one of Sharp's deadly traps.
He was voiced by Peter Reneday.
