Tucker Foley is one of Danny's two best friends - the other is Sam Manson - and a big techno-geek. He is also an expert in this field and always helps Danny to fight ghosts. He is voiced by Rickey D'Shon Collins.

History

Tucker's is one of Danny's two best friends, having stated as being close "since forever". He's mostly helped out Danny through use of his PDA, which he uses to hack into various technological systems (e.g. Skulker's gauntlet or Technus' techno suit.). He is also a meat fanatic, his preferred choice of food (he refuses to eat any vegetables - enough that he had diarrhea since his digestive system couldn't ingest it). Being exposed to its contents has caused him to develop a keen sense of smell finely tuned to it.[7] Tucker has also shown decent aim with a crossbow and is shown to be a terrible singer, enough to release the trance Ember held over her world-wide audience in "Fanning the Flames". He is deathly afraid of hospitals, doctors, and nurses - as a result, he never visits the Casper High nurse (bypassing it requires bagging his head to avoid eye contact).[10] He's also afraid of snakes.

Tucker once expressed jealousy over Danny's ghost powers, wishing for ghost powers of his own and gaining them unknowingly through Desiree, the wish-granting genie ghost in "What You Want". Tucker's powers quickly consumed him, turning him evil, until Danny put a stop to it, eventually restoring him back to normal through the use of the Fenton Ghost catcher.[3](which is similar to a dreamcatcher)

His uncontrollable vices and yearning for attention sent Tucker to unsuccessfully try and run for school president against the popular jock, Dash Baxter in "King Tuck". Dash Baxter usually stuffs Tucker into a locker. On a later visit to the museum on a school field trip, Tucker notices that he resembles the picture of the Egyptian pharaoh on display. Hotep-Ra, a mummy ghost and past servant of the ancient king, noticed this and hands Tucker the king's ancient scepter which possesses Tucker and allows him to create an Egyptian world with himself as ruler and the teachers and students as his servants. Danny was forced to once again rein in his over-eager best friend.[12]In the series finale, Tucker becomes the youngest mayor of Amity Park.[13]

Tucker's username in the massively popular multiplayer online role-playing game Doomed, a parody of the Doom series of video games, is "Fryer-Tuck". This is a reference to one of Robin Hood's merry men, Friar Tuck.
