* ArchnemesisDad: She absolutely despises her father. When your dad is VandalSavage, this is ''very'' understandable.

* BerserkButton: Don't bring up Scandal Savage's [[VandalSavage dad]] or do anything to remind her of him. ''Just don't do it''. You'll be ''very'' lucky to still be in one piece if you make him enter her mind. Actually, that's probably the easiest way to piss Scandal off, given that she is definitely the most AxCrazy of the team and has a ridiculously short fuse, and being insane.

* DomesticAbuser: Would occasionally hit his girlfriends.

* DomesticAbuser: Would occasionally hit his girlfriends. In fairness, this was during his "washed up" period, and after he reinvented himself this trope was dropped from his personality beyond being something he was ashamed of.

* [[AntiHero Anti Heroine]]: On the border between an [[UnscrupulousHero Unscrupulous Heroine]] and a [[NominalHero Nominal Heroine]]. She's exceedingly short-tempered, has absolutely no qualms about killing or horribly maiming people, and is generally extremely uncompromising, in addition to ''despising'' conventional heroes and viewing them as a bunch of stuck-up, self-righteous pricks and hypocrites of the worst kind, but she can always be counted on to do the right thing and cleaves to a morally good path more often than anyone else on the team. She'll never be a hero, but a villain she is not.

* {{Badass}}



Thomas Blake used to be a pathetic joke of a villain, particularly in recent years where he was portrayed as a fat nerd. After some time in the wilds of Africa, the now chiseled and badass Catman is one of the more (anti) heroic members of the group... most of the time.

* AbusiveParents: His dad was not a nice guy.
** So much so that finding out his father was in hell was enough to help him cope with the depression and suicidal thoughts he'd been suffering from
* {{Antihero}}: UnscrupulousHero on a bad day, PragmaticHero on a good one.

* BadassDecay: Lampshaded in universe. After a long stint in prison, he became an overweight loser. Green Arrow eventually [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech calls him on this]], and he decides to shape up and go back to his roots.



* BerserkButton: Do not threaten [[PapaWolf Catman's]] son. DO. NOT. DO. IT. While the rest of the team will either shoot you, slice you up, cave your head in, or rip you apart if you piss them off, Catman will make it slow. '''''VERY''''' slow. If you're lucky, you'll escape with either [[EyeScream part of your face missing]] or four new assholes. You probably won't be lucky, however.
** The New52 quickly establishes a couple more of this. He will get very violent if people try restraining him in any way, handcuffs included, and he also despises seeing animals being abused.

* NoSocialSkills: It's what happens when your entire childhood was spent fighting for your life Due to being raised by thugs, rapists and murderers in one of the world's toughest prisons.worst HellholePrison in South America, Bane is violent, vicious and intelligent, but has virtually no social skills and has no idea how to behave in a non-criminal setting.


Added DiffLines:

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: A skewed example. After finding out in Hell that his "personal code of honor" didnt make him a good person and he's damned for his crimes in life, he decides that if he's damned anyway, he might as well go all out back on Earth, not realizing that he's been evil the entire time, he just assumed that avoiding certain KINDS of evils was the same as not being evil at all.

* AbusiveParents

to:

* AbusiveParentsAbusiveParents: Pretty much all of the original group to one extent or another, with Scandals and Ragdolls fathers being portrayed as the worst by far, with Catmans sadist trophy hunter father a close second. Parademon didnt ''have'' parents as we know them on Earth, but was still raised by Granny Goodness, the New God of Child Abuse. However, unlike his teammates, he doesnt have mental scars from it since this is a default parental method on Apokalypse.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Though notably, everyone has ''different'' standards that often lead them into conflict.

to:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Though notably, everyone has ''different'' standards that often lead them into conflict. Catman is the most traditionally heroic while Deadshot will shoot anything that moves if he's paid for it.



* NoSell: One of the Madmen attempts a GroinAttack on him during ''Villains United'', which has no effect at all since Ragdoll had his testicles removed during surgery.



* TrainingFromHell: Not ''training'' per se, but he wasnt born with triple-joints like his father and older brother. He had to undergo years of painful and disfiguring surgery to get his abilities.



** This comes back to bite him in the ass when the Six briefly visit Hell to retrieve the Card, and he finds out that he's damned for his lifetime of murder and brutality, and he's ''genuinely confused'' that he's slated for damnation. Apparently he had assumed that following his own code of honor meant that he was a fundamentally a good person, not realizing that making up your own moral code is not the same as following an objective morality.



* MoralMyopia: Belives that following his own moral code is the same as being good. He's wrong.



* KickTheSonOfABitch: Her torture of Elizabeth Bathory during her time as the countess caretaker. She fed the woman ground glass over the course of decades, making sure that she didnt have one moment without pain until her eventual death.



* MakeMeWannaShout: A particularly nasty one; she screams waves of death that can incapacitate even WonderWoman.

* MakeMeWannaShout: A particularly nasty one; she screams waves of death that can incapacitate even WonderWoman. Turns out the scream is actually a form of MindRape that forces the person that hears it to suffer the way Banshee did in her original life.

* CompanionCube: Becomes very fond of a lawn gnome at Big Shot's yard and often carries it around with her.



* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: After the terrible life she has had both before and after her integration as a Talon for the Court of Owls, she got to see the Six as her family and was as loyal as them as they to her. Come the final issue, she now lives happily with the whole crew (minus Shawna after her betrayal) after they decide to retire from action and go straight, has her own "room" in a tree house built just for her (and full of [[CompanionCube lawn gnomes]]), even the neighbors like her, and she has notably removed the bandages from her face with no shame of her scars. She narrates the final few pages of the book and it's clear she's happier than ever]].



** [[spoiler: The final issue reveals that Ferdie is definitely not alive, but it's actually a different personality of Shawna's, the only part of her personality that was actually getting to genuinely care for the Six and be loyal to them. Shawna admitted to not liking thi and leaves Ferdie behind after betraying the team]].

Added DiffLines:

** Hell, she's so bad, even at age 4 Lian is perfectly aware of and ashamed of how horrible her mother is. When Lian's babysitter revealed that her grandparents died in the Qurac explosion, Lian got so angry at her mother she threw Jade's picture at the wall shouting "BAD MOMMY!"


Added DiffLines:

* MaternallyChallenged: Subverted. When she was taking care of Lian, and later Tommy, she didn't exactly mistreat or abuse them. But the general implications are that she only does so to carry on the facade of actually giving a shit about them so she can keep using and hurting their fathers. If it looks like she doesn't love her kids, then there's no reason for their dads to give a crap about her. Her original plan for Lian was to use her mere existence to torment Roy Harper as revenge for walking out on her, and Tommy's conception was so she'd at least have one child after leaving the Six and so Catman would have a reason to protect her when she betrayed the team. Gail Simone describes Cheshire as having a lizard-like mentality with her kids: the moment they become a detriment to her freedom, all bets are off.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInDumbass: Jade always had a rather eloquent vernacular, but following ''Rise of Arsenal'' and starting in ''Villains for Hire'' her vocabulary suddenly became extremely limited and she started swearing more frequently.
* {{Troll}}: It doesn't get any pettier than blowing up the terrorist capital of the world just to prove you could and for laughing in the face of global hypocrisy.
* WomanScorned: This is the whole reason she had Lian. The next time she met Roy Harper after their relationship ended, she told him about their child, a child she was never going to let him see as revenge. And when Roy ''did'' meet Lian, Jade changed her plan to taunting Roy by giving him the barest of details on Lian's development but never letting him see her again.
