Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyBi: Played with. They make tons of references to Douglas' and Krane's relationship being like that of a married couple, many of which come from Douglas himself.
-->'''Douglas''': Kids, this is my partner, Victor Krane.
-->'''Adam''': Wait, so now we have three dads?

* [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Jerkass Teenage Son]]: Shows this often in Season 3 and 4. Bree is much worse than he is though, but on her worst days.

* ShorterMeansSmarter: However, do not emphasize the "short" part, as it is a source of angst for him.

* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Chase basically cycles through all of these at some point. He starts out as Sanguine, but then as his confidence levels go way, way down, he becomes Melancholic. Then in Bionic Island, he becomes an awful, arrogant version of Choleric. He stays Choleric for the beginning of Elite Force, but after [[spoiler: he abolishes the Mission Leader title]] he gets much, much kinder and goes to Phlegmatic.

* {{Flanderization}}: He changed from a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Control Freak with some heart]] to a big try-too-hard perfectionist in Late Season 3 and Season 4.

* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Chase is highly arrogant and obnoxious with his intelligence and leadership skills, but Chase is also by far the most insecure of the Lab Rats, and it's been shown that although he brushes it off, Adam's teasing does get to him.

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Inverted. Just about everyone who's ever wanted to be his friend has ended up having ulterior motives: first Marcus, who was working for Douglas, than Sebastian, who was planning a rebellion and needed access to passwords and his chip schematics and such, [[spoiler: and then Reese, who just needed to get to Mission Control.]] Those are basically all of the people he's ever been friends with who weren't on a mission team with him. This was a big factor in his inferiority complex.

* MoralMyopia: Donald is very self-righteous to the point where he feels when he does something people can see as bad, it's justified, and he will dismiss it. But when Douglas does something bad, it's despicable.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Despite claiming that Douglas being a former villain ruined the family, Donald is partially and almost mainly responsible for Douglas's past actions, and refuses to admit that. Sure, the part about putting bionics in humans Donald had nothing to do with in Douglas's path to villainy, but everything else? That was Donald beating up his brother.
* NeverMyFault: Happens in several episodes, but special mention goes to ''Brother Battle''. He blames Douglas for upsetting the balance within the team. However, that whole mess could've been avoided if Donald had just done something sooner to help Chase with his problem regarding Adam.

It could be argued that Donald was somewhat sympathetic towards Adam, having been that brother in the past, and that that's why he didn't say anything, and that Douglas was sympathetic towards Chase, hence why he helped him out by giving him the Laser Bo.

* AbusiveParents: Played with; he didn't really care about Marcus--he forgot Marcus' birthday and didn't care that Marcus was going to burn out before he reaches his 16th birthday, AND left him for dead. That would backfire on him two years later when Marcus came BackFromTheDead. As for the Lab Rats, he didn't care about their birthdays either and wanted to enslave them and have them commit crimes for him. However, he wanted to make time for family game nights, at least to show he can still make time to be their dad.

* AbusiveParents: Played with; he didn't really care about Marcus--he forgot Marcus' birthday and didn't care that Marcus was going to burn out before he reaches his 16th birthday, AND left him for dead. That said, Marcus was an android, so it's understandable that Douglas wouldn't really care about his feelings, seeing as he didn't technically have any. That would backfire on him two years later when Marcus came BackFromTheDead. As for the Lab Rats, he didn't care about their birthdays either and wanted to enslave them and have them commit crimes for him. However, after his HeelFaceTurn, he wanted to make time for family game nights, at least to show he can still make time to be their dad.



* AmbiguouslyEvil: Douglas is an example where he gets ''more'' ambiguous with each appearance after ''Bionic Showdown''. When he was officially introduced, his agenda was hinted at involving renting out bionic humans to dictators and terrorists, and enslaving Adam, Bree, and Chase for his own evil purposes. Then when discussed in ''Avalanche'', Chase wondered if Douglas was gonna build some bombs, take over a tiny country, steal money from old ladies. Douglas said he ''could'' do those things (albeit not in that order), but then he says he just wants to get back at his brother and beat him at something. Then in his next few appearances, every thing he does is to spite him, including blowing up the lab and stealing all of his money. Finally, in ''Which Father Knows Best?", Douglas finds out Bree smashed her chip, and Donald can't fix it, he saw that as another thing he could rub his brother's face in, but Leo reminds him that there are more important things than winning against his brother.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling:...Turned ''evil''. He lets go of this trait after his HeelFaceTurn, and he has to stay on his brother's good side. In the past, he was this, but he had an understandable reason for it.
* ArchnemesisDad: To Adam, Bree, and Chase, and they never knew it at the time.
* BadassBookworm: Is just as good a fighter (and a much more brutal one) as his brother and is more intelligent. He got a little rusty later on though.

* CharacterDevelopment: Douglas gets a deep one, in how he started out as a veangence-filled megalomaniac obsessed with getting back at Donald. However, "Avalanche" showed that it was understandable, and that Donald had driven him into this. He softens a little after teaming up with the Lab Rats to fight Krane, but he wasn't fuld redeemed just yet. However, Leo convinces him that it's not that important to get the upper hand of Donald.
* ChekhovsGunman: Douglas is vaguely mentioned in ''Exoskeleton vs. Grandma'', but supposedly as part of a lie for Donald to come up with an explanation. Eventually, Douglas makes his appearance, and everything Donald said to Leo's grandma regarding Douglas turned out to be accurate.
