*HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: The inspector appears to have a glaring blindspot when the suspects include middle-aged, respectable women.



* NobleBigotWithABadge: In one of the first episodes, Brackenreid admits that the skin color of a black murder suspect initially led him to believe she was guilty. Later on he arrests a caravan of gypsies for a series of break-ins without any proof, although he later lets them go when he tracks down the ''real'' thieves. In the episode "Werewolves", he readily admits that the Native Jimmy [=McCloud=] would make a very good policeman, but refuses Crabtree's request to deputize [=McCloud=] because the racism of Victorian-era Toronto would preclude any "Indian coppers". He's also initially disdainful of a persian suspect (though he does view the attempt to frame said suspect as evil) and doesn't seem to think much of the chinese.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He can predict what Murdoch is about to do and acts accordingly. His traps and plans are very elaborate.

Added DiffLines:

* TheseHandsHaveKilled: He never killed a man in the line of duty until the day he has to shoot and kill [[spoiler: a Black Hand assassin pursuing Anna Fulford]] in "Walk On The Wild Side Part 2." He doesn't take it particularly well, though he avoids slipping into a HeroicBSOD.

Added DiffLines:

* AlmightyJanitor: Despite being one of the higher-ranking officers at Station House No. 4, he's nonetheless ''over''qualified for his position due to politics. Murdoch was once up for a promotion to inspector, however he was passed over because of the anti-Catholic sentiment in predominantly Protestant Toronto during the era. As a result it's highly unlikely he'll ever rise higher than detective.

* ButtMonkey: If one of the characters is going to have to do something particularly embarrassing over the course of the investigation, there's a good bet it's going to be Crabtree.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDitz: Not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, prone to making foolish mistakes, and mishandling evidence.


Added DiffLines:

* TheKlutz: Higgins shows very little aptitude for handling evidence. He means well, but is often clumsy and on many occasions accidentally damages, destroys, or otherwise mishandles whatever he's attempting to help with.

* BlondesAreEvil: She's criminal master mind, but managed to look completely innocent. She nearly framed her husband for her crimes, who was absolutely oblivious about her nature.

Added DiffLines:

* ChasteHero: Due to his deep-held Catholic beliefs and gentlemanly demeanor, he will not act untoward women or give into temptation no matter how willingly it's offered. When forced to spend a night at a hotel with Julia, in order to give her husband grounds for divorce, he comes prepared with a game of checkers to keep themselves occupied.
