Daisy Duck is the female deuteragonist and a main character of the Mickey Mouse franchise. She is the primary and permanent girlfriend of Donald Duck, the best friend Minnie Mouse and the aunt of April, May, and June who first appeared in the short Mr. Duck Steps Out. Like Donald, Daisy is an anthropomorphic white duck with no pants, but has large eyelashes and ruffled tail feathers to suggest a skirt. She is often seen wearing a hair bow, blouse, and shoes. Daisy usually shows a strong affinity towards Donald, although she is often characterized as being more sophisticated than him.
Daisy does not like it when Donald loses his temper and flies into a rage and she has told him so on more than one occasion. Ironically, however, on the rare occasions when Daisy loses her cool, her temper proves to be even worse than Donald's (as seen in the Walt Disney animated short Cured Duck).
She first appears in the classic shorts as a supporting character until 1961 before she reappeared in 1983, where she appears in Mickey's Christmas Carol. Since then, she has become one of the main characters since 1987, where she served as the deuteragonist in Down and Out with Donald Duck. She then makes her first lead role as the tritagonist in Quack Pack. She became one of the main characters officially since Mickey Mouse Works and Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas. She plays her role in House of Mouse, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy: The Three Musketeers, and Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas. She soon played her role seriously in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, its spin-offs, the Mickey Mouse Shorts from 2013-2019, Mickey and the Roaster Racers/Mickey Mouse Mixed-Up Adventures, its spin-offs, the Ducktales reboot, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse and Mickey Mouse Funhouse.
She was voiced by the late Clarence Nash, the original voice of Donald and his nephews, Gloria Blondell, Ruth Clifford, Vivi Janiss, and June Foray in the old shorts. In her further appearances, she was voiced by the late Janet Waldo and Patricia Parris in Mickey's Christmas Carol, Tony Anselmo in Down and Out with Donald Duck, who is also the new voice Donald and his nephews, Kath Soucie in Quack Pack, Diane Michelle a few appearances in Mickey Mouse Works and House of Mouse as an alternative voice and the late Russi Taylor in Fantasia 2000, the original voice of Minnie. Currently, she is now voiced by Tress MacNeille.
Originally Daisy Duck was a minor character featured on special occasions in cartoons starring Donald Duck, Daisy would eventually become a recurring character in Disney productions, then turned main character, joining the likes of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, the aforementioned Donald and Pluto, as one of the company's primary stars; making appearances in all forms of media around the world.
Her first appearance in the classic short features but only when Donald appeared. The first of five major roles in her appearances Mr. Duck Steps Out, The Nifty Nineties Donald's Crime, Sleepy Time Donald, Donald's Dilemma, Donald's Dream Voice, Donald's Diary and How to Have an Accident at Work. She took her role serious in the comics and books as she and Donald go through tougher times than in the TV series. She made few appearances in Walt Disney anthology series, where relationship gets just as serious. Since the 1980s, she became a regular character and one of the main characters, which soon formed the Sensational Six.
Daisy is the beautiful girlfriend of Donald Duck and best friend of Minnie Mouse. Like Donald, she is capable of going into rages when upset and possibly more dangerous than Donald. Despite this, she manages to keep her temper down a lot better. In early appearances, Daisy was shown to be a loving girlfriend always there for Donald but always having the tendency to nag and change Donald's way but always for the better. She has faith in her boyfriend knowing that she is so important to him that he will strive to change but usually fails in the end.
In later years, Daisy became more than just a high maintenance female version of Donald, but a fun-loving and fashion forward diva. She often annoys her friends being that she loves to talk, is easily bored and at times can overstay her welcome. Even Donald would occasionally find her to be a nuisance. She loves the spotlight and can be very competitive but always looks for the best way to apologize, knowing her right and wrongs, and is shown to love and care for her friends deeply.
A lover of glamour, she's shown to be worldly, sophisticated, well bred and loves to be "surrounded by pretty things." Her confidence and aggressiveness point a sharp contrast to Minnie's shy, more demure personality. Her enthusiastic nature can get her to act a bit silly and ditzy, but she's actually quite mature when she needs to be. She's someone whose fiercely determined and strives to get what she wants by any means.
- When Daisy first appeared, her voice sounded that of Donald's. In her later/further appearances, she was given a normal voice from now on to be understood more.
- Daisy is the first female anthropomorphic to have a busty upperchest, although it's only seen frequently in recent appearances.
- Before introduction, Daisy was rumored to be another duck girl named Donna Duck, who was originally Donald's first girlfriend before she dumped him. That is until a comic featured the two meeting each other. Another featured the two attempting to be with Donald.
- The company decided it was time for Donald to have a permanent girlfriend, so Daisy the right selection for him. Despite the issues that the two ducks go through together through their relationship, Daisy is still and always will forever be Donald's primary love interest and girlfriend no matter what.
- Despite Donald being her boyfriend, Daisy is always in conflict with him. This is especially because of his temper, although Daisy is shown to be very short-tempered as well, and sometimes she also acts out of jealousy:
- In Cured Duck, Donald's anger issue is the start of it all, causing her to force Donald out of her house for damaging it until he controlled his temper. In the final of the short, when Donald laughs at her strange looking hat, she starts beating up Donald with her umbrella, starting the cycle over again.
- In Donald's Double Trouble short, she threats to break-up with Donald if he doesn't get his act together, although she is acting as bad as his behavior, which made their situation worse. After accident revolving around Donald and his double Dapper Duck, who looks entirely like him, she starts to swear at the end causing them both runaway in fear.
- In the end of Sleepy Time Donald, although she is revealed and happy that her lover was safe, she is frustrated and annoyed to not only find out he is sleep walking throughout the whole short but also got her injured as well and pushes him aside at least for the night.
- In the 1950 short Crazy Over Daisy, set in the 1890s. Donald seems in good mood and on his way for his date with Daisy but when Chip 'N Dale start to antagonize to Donald, it results in one of their typical fights. Daisy interrupts in the final scene of episode accusing to Donald of being cruel to the two "innocent" chipmunks, and Donald had to forget of this date.
- In Donald's Dilemma, she misses Donald dearly and does anything to get him back, although her reasons are selfish as she wants him for herself. Even though she gets him back, it destroys Donald's music career for good but she never tells him about it.
- In Donald's Diary, when Donald starts dreaming of the duck couple's wedding while waiting for his beloved sweetheart while she was taking a shower, Daisy is shown to a selfish and battle axe woman, turning Donald into her slave, which causes him to runaway from her to avoid that from happening to him.
- In the comic book version, Daisy Duck appears with her precursor Donna Duck, the character from the 1937 short film Don Donald in Bob Karp's Donald Duck daily strips from 1951 who is moving as Donald's neighbor, causing Daisy to be jealous. This establishes the two as separate characters, and marks the first time they appear together in a story.
- The comics and book series features her being extreme at times when she tries to make things the way she thinks they should be. One of them includes making Donald as flawless as he could be even if that meant taking drastic measures, but she later becomes remorseful for her actions.
- In Mickey Mouse Works, in "Double Date Don", when Clara starts heckling and stalking Donald while he building a break wall for Daisy, she thinks that he is cheating on her, causing her get angry and shut the door on him. However, before he and Clara marry, Daisy soon stops and realizes her terrible mistake, but still takes it the wrong way: she thinks she drove Donald and made him turn to Clara when she made him work on the brick wall. Although he knows it is not truth, Donald agrees with this because he wants to get her back. Despite being forgiven, Daisy still ends up paying the price by building the brick wall she made Donald do.
- In the House of Mouse episode Unplugged the Club, Daisy slaps Donald in the face for kissing her after the blackout caused by Pete.
- In Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, she bosses around Donald, forcing him to stay out of his peaceful break to shove down commercialism onto his face.
- In Duck the Halls, Daisy initially ignores and shrugs off Donald's desires of staying for Christmas despite knowing it is for the best because ducks have to head South to stay warm and survive. Even after Donald manages to escape, instead of going after him, she sarcastically just goes on ahead, believing he'll come back. Despite her worries, Daisy is still calm and sarcastic about her lover staying home and trusting that he'll come back, but it takes longer than expected. Upon discovering Donald's sickness, she tells Donald's family they're going after him, preparing for cold and once they get him, Daisy vows to kill him for his idiotic actions. When he arrives with the rest of the group, Daisy is frightened and thinks that he is dead when he is actually alive. At first, she becomes furious because Donald scared her to death and even slaps him in the face, but she then becomes happy because she missed Donald so much and joyously smooches and hugs him really tight.
- Daisy like a mixed version of Donald and Minnie. She wears a bow like Minnie, but wears no pants like Donald. The bottom of her feathers are in the form a skirt.
- Unlike the rest of the Sensational Six and other characters, Daisy was the only one not be full naked onscreen because her chest, which is very busty almost all the time, wouldn't be good of to the public. That is until the Mickey Mouse TV series showed almost entirely naked when she shown being massaged and her chest nearly entirely shown.
- In the episode House of Magic of House of Mouse (chapter 16 of season 3), Daisy steals the Magic Wand of Fairy Godmother from 1950 version of Cinderella with the intention of perform a magic act but accidentally makes disappear to the audience.

- According to Don Rosa, Daisy is the sister of Donald's brother-in-law. Daisy's brother had married Donald's twin sister, Della Duck, and together, the two became the parents of Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck. That would make her Donald's sister-in-law and Huey, Dewey and Louie's paternal aunt. That soon proved to be false.
- Daisy Duck never appeared in the original Ducktales but is re-introduced in Season 3 of the DuckTales reboot. Unlike the other series, she has no connection with Donald, so the two ducks met each other for the first time in the series. Her appearance is also heavily design as the one she had in the short Donald's Diary.
