No more valour in that poins than in a wild-duck. Henry IV, part I: II, ii

duck, i'll be sworn. The Tempest: II, ii

duck with french nods and apish courtesy, King Richard III: I, iii

And the phoenicians go a-ducking; Antony and Cleopatra: III, vii

That, as a duck for life that dives, Pericles, Prince of Tyre: II, v

Than twenty silly ducking observants King Lear: II, ii

O dainty duck! o dear! A Midsummer Night's Dream: V, i

My dainty duck, my dear-a? The Winter's Tale: IV, iv

ducks to the golden fool: all is oblique; Timon of Athens: IV, iii

ducks i' the river: go to, go to. Toilus and Cressida: III, ii

duck, thou art made like a goose. The Tempest: II, ii

And hold-fast is the only dog, my duck: King Henry V: II, iii

Ah, sweet ducks! Toilus and Cressida: IV, iv

Swum ashore. man, like a duck The Tempest: II, ii

Olympus-high and duck again as low Othello: II, i

Fowl or a hurt wild-duck. I pressed me none but such Henry IV, part I: IV, ii

There's probably more evidence that Shakespeare was a tyrant if you judge by number of references. Johnny, look it up.
