* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted ''big time'', no pun intended. The massively overweight and balding Cluemaster from this show is a far cry from the fit, head of hair Arthur Brown from the comics.

* AdaptationalHeroism: This Clayface started off as a supporting protagonist, being a cop and the best friend of Bruce Wayne. His transformation into Clayface is very tragic and at first he didn't have any evil intent other than his distressed attempts at repairing his life.

* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Happens to him quite a bit, because he constantly ignores the fact that his powers make him crazy. This happens in his first appearances as [[spoiler: Clayface]], but it's especially pronounced in ''Meltdown,'' where as he uses his powers throughout the episode he jumps from wanting to capture Joker to make sure he can't hurt anyone else, to wanting to kill Joker out of revenge for what he did to him, to [[spoiler: wanting to kill ''Batman'' because he's the only one who could bust him for trying to kill Joker, to deciding to become a full-on supervillain at Joker's suggestion because he's already trying to kill Batman anyway. By the end of it he's stealing art and ranting about "mashing anyone who gets in his way"]]. [[spoiler: Fortunately, his final appearance shows that he's gotten a better handle on it to the point where he mostly manages to remain himself even after using extensive use of his powers, though his sudden lashing out when presented with the antidote still shows that he still doesn't quite have it completely under control]].
* [[spoiler:KnightOfCerebus: As Clayface.]]

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler: His world id destroyed in the span of a single episode when the Joker kidnaps and tortures him, and he's exposed to some chemicals. He's suspended because he gives proper credit to Batman for his rescue instead of letting Rojas take it for hmiself, then discovers the chemicals have transformed him. His first attempt at reformation also failed because of the stress of dealing with dealing who viewed him differently.]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: Most versions started as an Adorkable, shy psychologist who mostly [[SextraCredit slept her way through school.]] This version is already a stuck-up bitch with several loose screws, and it doesn't take much for Joker to drive her over the edge. She also [[KickTheDog poisons a group of squirrels,]] something comics Harley would never do.

* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: It started with merely following the Joker home to grill him for info for a tell-all book. Then he convinced her to join him on a "night on the town," supposedly to help her research. By the end of it, she had gleefully taken part in a spree of destruction and was willingly trying to attack Batman. And when the media catches wind of this and makes her a pariah for it, she ''really'' goes off the deep end.

* MadLove: Naturally, though it's played a little different than usual. Here, Joker dotes on Harley and legitimately seems to enjoy her company as opposed to his usual abusive fare, but sees the whole thing as mere entertainment and doesn't really care about her any more than that. Likewise, though he still manipulates her into the whole thing, it's made clear that this version of Harley ''really'' enjoys the whole supervillain lifestyle and helps him for reasons more than her usual delusional ExtremeDoormat personality.

* NeverMyFault: She's fired for the following: telling a girl to go behind her mother's back to date a boy she wasn't allowed to see, ignore the network's executives concerns and harass Bruce Wayne with a jilted-ex when he was promised he'd talk about a charity drive. To her, they just can't see past her "playful exterior".
