Escape from Mystery Manor

Danny Darrow was a crazed hermit, and the last surviving member of the Darrow family.

Physical appearance

Danny Darrow (Younger)

Danny as a child.

Due to his self imposed exile and obsession over his treasure he has grown into a decrepit, malnourished dwarf with an unkempt look after living over 70 years underground.[1]

His post-Nibiru counterpart is more healthy with brown hair, just like his younger.[2]


He was really aggressive because of his treasure. However, after being outsmarted by the gang, he came back to his senses and becomes much more gentler.[1]

Skills and abilities

Though clearly psychotic from years of isolation and loneliness, Darrow had unusual skills with traps and uses good sword skills with his hot poker.[1]


Early life

He and his family were fighting over a puzzle-piece artifact. At the time he got his hands on it, an earthquake caused their mansion to be swallowed up below ground.[1]

He somehow survived there for about 75 years, outliving his family because he was the youngest. When he was disturbed by the old Mystery Incorporated, he thought they were after his treasure, so he tried to fill the mansion with traps for them, with some traps arranged in ways that would pray on their weaknesses, but they left while he was still working on them.[1]

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

When the gang discovered a way down to the mansion, his crazed mind mistook them for the original Mystery Inc., and he tried to trap and kill them. They managed to escape, and eventually he realized they were not who he thought. He gave them the puzzle piece and let them escape, just as the ground around the mansion began collapsing again, leaving his fate ambiguous.[1]


Daniel Darrow (post-Nibiru)

When the gang created an alternate timeline, Daniel had become the dean of Darrow University, and that Darrow Mansion was now a historic landmark.[2]



  • In Escape from Mystery Manor, Danny seems to be loosely based off of Bobby Barrows from Clock Tower, he also bears many simalarities to Smeagol/Gollum from Lord of the Rings, as well as, Jigsaw from Saw.
