* AdaptationalHeroism: Daedalus Boch in the comics was a demon-worshiping murderer who used the blood of his victims in his paint. Here, he just seems to be a petty vandal.

to:

* AdaptationalVillainy: While Matatoa in the comics was still a villain, he only absorbed the souls of his enemies to remain immortal. In here, he has no magic ability and allegedly cuts off the hearts of others and devours them.
* 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.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: In "Games", he ''genuinely'' believed he was doing Ernie Crospy a favor when he kidnapped Batman, Katana, Jim Gordon, Mayor Grange, and Tobias Whale to punish them for sending him to jail for a crime he didn't commit and is annoyed when Ernie refuses to kill them like he wanted.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: He only appears twice and doesn't take too much screentime. However, his second appearance reveals [[spoiler: that he was hired by Deathstroke to create the fake identity of Dane Lisslow, which allowed Slade to proceed with his elaborate revenge plan that drives the plot of the second story arc.]]

** AdaptationExpansion: However, her origin story here is both rather complex and pretty ''screwed up'', and it's also expanded on more than it ever was in the comics. Because of this, she's still quite pitiable, and she still retains her obsessive love of pretty, shiny things.

* AntiVillain: Type II. [[spoiler:She started off as a basically good person with kleptomania, but the treatment they gave her (which she volunteered for in hopes of being cured) ends up shattering her mind, and eventually erases her good persona entirely. Even after that, the Magpie persona is largely sympathetic, as beyond her compulsion to steal she mostly just wants to be loved; it's her complete lack of impulse control and her own emotions that makes her a villain. Even Batman feels sorry for her]], and of course because it's [[CrapsackWorld that kind of show]] his attempt to help her only makes things worse, which left Batman no choice, but come to the realization that she an outright irredeemable lost cause (especially when [[spoiler:her attempt on Katana's life in "Attraction," which counted as her MoralEventHorizon, prompts him to drop any he had sympathy for Magpie, despite him saying he really do not want to hurt her after saving Katana's life and before defeating her once more]]), not to mention a [[ManipulativeBitch bad]] [[NotSoDifferent influence]] on him. See TragicVillain below.

* 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]]

* {{Expy}}: The parallels between him and Film/TheDarkKnightSaga's [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]] are too obvious to ignore.
