* LighterAndSofter: Considering how dark Pyg's debut arc was, it's only natural it was toned down for a show on a channel aimed at pre-teens. The show's portrayal of Professor Pyg is a well-mannered criminal genius instead of the deranged sadist that he is in the comics.[[note]]To elaborate, Pyg in the comics basically made SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker look sane.[[/note]]

* {{Badass}}: Naturally. This version of Batman is a bit more fallible and less skilled in combat than other interpretations, but more than makes up for it with brilliant detective skills. And even then, he's still more than competent in combat.
** BackToBackBadasses: With Tatsu in "Family".
** BadassBaritone: Almost to Creator/SteveBlum and Creator/KevinConroy levels.
** BadassInDistress: In episodes 2 and 7, with a cliffhanger example in 13.
** BadassNormal: Yet another "comes with the territory" trope.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: His debut appearence portrayed him as an AntiVillain who though extreme in his methods, displayed genuine remorse for his actions and even released his captives in a show of good sportmanship. His second appearence downplays his sympathetic traits in favor of playing up his more sociopathic traits and sadism.
