* PoliceBrutality: While he himself does not participate, he is well aware of how several members of his squad got their information -but he draws the line at slapping around a woman.
* SlowlySlippingIntoEvil: Arguably passed this when he allowed the torture of Tommy Caroll

**The case in question, Billie Frechette, might be because Purvis knows that she is an innocent person who probably knows little of what Dillinger was up to. In real life, his secretary also was appalled at the way Billie Frechette's interrogation went.

* We'llSeeAboutThat: Dillinger says this to Purvis after being taunted that he'll never leave his jail cell until being removed for his execution in the electric chair. Though Purvis and Dillinger never actually spoke to each other, Dillinger did have multiple in-prison encounters with his original pursuer - Indiana State Police detective Matt Leach, who was somewhat more competent than the FBI in pursuing Dillinger.

*HeroAntagonist
*HeWhoFightsMonsters: His entire arc. You can clearly see in Bale's performance each time he compromises his values for the sake of getting the job done, and how much it weighs on him. [[spoiler: Even Dillinger comments on this]]
