* GenreSavvy: In "Traction" , she notifies all police officers to station at every hospital and to be on a lookout for a newly arrived patient with multiple wounds and fractures, knowing that if she finds the patient she would find Batman. She would have likely captured Batman if it weren't for Alfred.

* AgeLift: Like Alfred, he appears to be a lot younger than he is usually depicted (though the younger Gordon in ''Batman Begins'' might have inspired that.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Another given.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Aside from the EarlyBirdCameo, Gordon's this. Alfred comments that "James Gordon has loomed large over [Bruce's] life." Then at the newly-installed Batsignal, Gordon says to Batman, "Thanks to all of your efforts, Batman, the time is finally right to take our alliance to the next step." Both said despite the fact that prior to "Night and the City", Gordon hadn't appeared in the present day.

* TheRival: To Penguin.Penguin, as they constantly feud over who is Gotham's number one baddie.



** AdaptationalComicRelief: Yet, at the same time, he gives off a HarmlessVillain impression far more often than other versions. More than once, his schemes only work out of coincidence (the sonic device happens to work on Man-Bat; stumbling upon Green Lantern's ring, etc.)

* AbledInTheAdaptation: Surprisingly averted. This is one of the few adaptations that show Oracle, and Oracle in a wheelchair at that.



* AdaptationDyeJob: Barbara Gordon is typically blue-eyed, but here she has brown eyes.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Barbara Gordon is typically blue-eyed, but here she has brown eyes. Her hair is also a different shade of red than the norm.



* AgeLift: She's not so much younger than she's usually depicted, but she's depicted as being older than Dick Grayson.

to:

* AgeLift: She's not so much younger than she's usually depicted, but she's depicted as being older than Dick Grayson. This makes her more in line with her pre-Crisis counterpart.



* ParentalObliviousness: The poor guy can never fully connect with his daughter due to clashing views, and years into the future, he ''still'' doesn't know about her superhero double-life. Justified, as the only time he ever got a good luck at Batgirl was the first time he met her, and he was missing his glasses.
** Yet, he noticed Batgirl's hair color.

* CatchPhrase: As a child, Cluemaster screams "NO FAIR!" when he loses the "Think, Thank, Thunk" game show. As an adult, he screams it again when Batman beats him at his own game.


Added DiffLines:

* Hypocrite: He throws temper tantrums when he's outsmarted, even though his opponents played fairly. For double humiliation, Batman beat him at a game where ''he'' made up the rules.

* AffablyEvil: He's friendly and polite to his enemies.



* CompositeCharacter: While he soon became the MadScientist of the comics, he initally came off as the [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate morally ambiguous head of Arkham Asylum]] who's obsessed with the insanity of Batman's villains (and Batman himself) like Dr. Jeremiah Arkham. [[spoiler: His role in "Strange New World" was also originally meant for the Scarecrow. Though it should be noted that Strange in the comics used fear-inducing toxins long before Scarecrow was introduced, making his role in that episode still true to the original character.]]
