* YouAreWhatYouHate: He at some point discovered that the [=CIA=] didn't alter him much beyond activating his dormant X-Gene. He took this revelation surprisingly well, and now believes that he was ''born'' to kill rather than ''made'' to kill.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He's a normal person who is strong enough to lift and turn over a limo, toss 400lbs bar across the room, kick off car doors and defeat actual superhumans in fistfights. Miller's run explained this as abilities inherent to all humans, which Matt unlocked n himslef through the chemicals that blinded him.

** The last couple of writers on Daredevil (Bendis and Brubaker) have seemingly competed to see just how much pain they can put Matt Murdock through. Just in the last two runs, he's gone though a mental breakdown over the death of his longtime girlfriend Karen Page, his secret identity was blown and he was sent to a high security prison (filled mostly with crims he'd put away) for obstruction of justice, his wife was driven insane by a supervillain and committed to a mental hospital and his best friend was stabbed and assumed to be killed.

* {{Archenemy}}: Of the organistion known as The Chaste, of whom Matt's mentor, Stick, was one. The group as a whole is third on Daredevil's hit parade after Wilson Fisk and Bullseye. They've fought him many times, a number of his enemies (Elektra, Lady Bullseye, Kingpin) have been members of the group or have tried to take control of it, they're linked to his mentor, and they want Matt to be their leader.

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: A favourite tactic of theirs; they kill you, and then resurrect you as a NietzscheWannabe AxCrazy BloodKnight loyal to them. Elektra went through this twice, though the second time apparently she had developed a resistance to it and OutGambitted them.

* CrazyPrepared: The two issue comic '' Bullseye:Perfect Game'' showed that Bullseye can to ridiculous extremes in preparing for a job. A job required him to go undercover as a baseball player, so he hired Satana to make his soul look different in case Doctor Strange or some other magic user was in the audience and he hired Taskmaster to teach him how to move and even pitch differently.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: He had tremendous potential as an athlete and baseball player due to his expert marksmanship, but his psycopathic nature came out and he killed a player. He actually does make a lot of money as an assassin, but he never spends any of it (He believes he may have more money than Norman Osborn from his jobs).

Daredevil's [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] archnemesis, Leland Owlsley was a Wall Street financier turned would-be crime lord, who ingested a special serum that gave him the power to glide. After years of experimenting on himself, and a great deal of SanitySlippage, Owlsley has become a mutant birdman, with talons, natural flying ability, and a hunger for live mice.

* {{Archenemy}}: Stan Lee created him to fill this role, though he's fallen by the wayside since thanks to the presence of better known and more thematically appropriate candidates like Kingpin, Bullseye, and the Hand. That said, of the long-running Daredevil villains he's still consistenly portrayed as the most dangerous, with even Kingpin treading lightly about him, and has the best claim to the title of any of them.

* IJustWantToBeLoved: Deep, deep, ''deep'' down he's secretly obsessed with being loved unconditionally, and this longing for genuine affection occasionally surfaces, albeit in ways twisted by his sociopathy. He released a woman who he had taken as his wife from his control because the genuine fondness that he had developed for her led him to believe that she could reciprocate his feelings in spite of what he had done to her. Obviously, her immediate response to being freed was to take off as quickly as possible (Killgrave doing nothing to stop her, for some reason). He eventually also started rounding up his children, wanting to form a family with them... and also have them help him TakeOverTheWorld.



* NoSell: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, the Kingpin, and Dr. Doom have all proven able to resist his powers. Daredevil's nonconventional senses allow him to concentrate on resisting his commands, Jessica Jones received psionic shielding from Jean Grey, and the Kingpin was able to resist through sheer force of will (albeit with some obvious struggle). Dr. Doom however takes the cake, as he was able to easily ignore his power without any visible effort, all while was connected to a device that amplified his ability to planet-influencing levels.

** Well, ''overt'' villainy anyway. He has ''never'' stopped commiting crimes or being evil; he just stopped picking fights with superheroes or trying to TakeOverTheWorld. Temporarily. He still conned, brainwashed, robbed, and murdered his merry way through life.

* EnemyMine: Once aided Daredevil when Turk Barrett (see below) stole his armour. In fact, all Day had to do is tell Daredevil where the essential gyroscopic mechanism is in the suit so he could rip it out and Turk instantly learned that it's impossible to keep balance without it. Of course, Day later modified the suit so DD couldn't pull that move on him.

A mentally ill woman with a badly factured identity, Mary Walker is a threat to everyone around her. Boasting low-level psyonic powers, excellent combat skills, and three separate identities (the timid Mary Walker, the violent Typhoid Mary, and the {{sadist}}ic Bloody Mary), Mary has worked for Kingpin and others as an assassin, and has a long and ugly love/hate relationship with both Daredevil and Matt Murdock.

Typhoid was so different than Mary, that even Daredevil was, at first, unable to tell they were the same person, even with his enhanced senses. (It seemed that the change even affected her body odor somehow.)

* IdiotBall: He's picked it up a few times. It's usually when he tries to go after superhumans who are just too far outside of his weight class. Deadpool is pretty much the upper limit that he can safely handle, and Deadpool really doesn't try to kill him because they're friends. Put him up against a heavy hitter and he's in serious trouble. A good example is when he tried to kill American Eagle, who gave his attacks a NoSell, pointed out that he really should stick to going after unpowered normals, then gave Bullseye a brutal NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.
