* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler: In "Monsters," based on the tone of Batman's response and the response itself after Sapphire expresses how she still love Rex even after just smugly admitting to be behind the plot to tear down Old Gotham, Batman possibly now view her as this and only lied that Rex is dead and repeated his threat to her to have her arrested to not buy into her act as he saw it as and that he's not going to be fooled by any more of criminals' sympathies that would lower his guard]].
* BrokenPedestal: In "Toxic", Batman views and treats her as Rex's lover who expresses her concerns for him, however, [[spoiler: in "Monsters", any sympathy and pity Batman had for her is diminished as he now views her with disdain as just another CorruptCorporateExecutive upon discovering her criminal plan. Even when Sapphire express how she still love Rex and express concern for him, Batman shows NoSympathy and instead lies to her about Rex being dead and concludes his talk with her by threatening to have her arrested like her father if she continues with her corrupt schemes.]]

* AdaptationalWimp: He's known as "The Undefeated Warrior" in the comics, while in here, he's a slightly tougher mook and a warm-up foe before Killer Croc.
* AxCrazy: Definitely insane and uses a pair of large blades.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Unlike Pyg, he is darker and more violent than in the comics, at least according to Tobias Whale's exposition.
* DemotedToExtra: While a very obscure villain, he had his own story arc. In this show, he is mostly a glorified mook.
* DreadlockWarrior
* ImAHumanitarian: According to Whale, he eats the hearts of his victims since he believes it will make him immortal.
* LickingTheBlade: He doesn't actually lick it, but he makes a gesture with his blade and his tongue that evokes it.
* ManiacTongue: He shows it off to taunt Batman before their fight.
* MeaningfulName: His name means "fearless" in Maori. Fittingly enough, he shows no fear as he charges at Batman before being beaten.
* TattooedCrook: He has Maori tribal tattoos.
