* EvenEvilHasStandards: A variation. The Joker (yeah, [[ComicBook/TheJoker that one]]) thinks he's uncontrollably insane, and wants the Creeper to get away from him, so it's more like "Even Insanity Has Standards."

* AdaptationalVillainy: His ComicBook/{{New 52}} version is very much demonic, and even gets a VillainEpisode in ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueDark'' during the ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' event. As part of DC Rebirth, Jack Ryder appears to be back to his original pre-New 52 version from before; while investigating a series of murders of criminals in Chicago' Ryder ends up transforming into Creeper again and battling Deathstroke.
* BrownNote: DependingOnTheWriter, the Creeper's laugh can shatter anything from nerves to bones.

** He is also the source of a lot of discoverables in DCUniverseOnline, but he never turns into the Creeper.

* [[EvilCounterpart Good Counterpart]]: The {{DCAU}} version is this in respect to the Joker. In fact, he became the Creeper through the same vat of chemicals that made the Joker except he was also affected with Joker venom (in gaseous form). While both are goofy and dangerous, Joker relies on chemicals, gadgets and smarts while the Creeper has superhuman strength and endurance (taking a crate dropped on him like nothing). Most of all, he retains a basic sense of right and wrong (when purchasing a new outfit, he paid with his credit card, which is what led Batman to the discovery he was Jack Ryder.) Notably, he acts like a StalkerWithACrush towards Harley Quinn, mirroring her behavior towards the Joker.

** In ''ComicBook/BatmanGothamAdventures'' #58, the {{DCAU}} Ryder is seen to shapeshift if he hasn't taken his medicine or due to a rush of adrenaline. He made the "change with a rush of adrenalin" thing work for him; once he needed to quickly transform, so he ''jumped out a skyscraper window!''

* NoOSHACompliance: Subverted in the {{Diniverse}} origin. There were handrails, but nothing to stop Joker from pushing him over them.

The Creeper is also remarkable in being pretty much the only character SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker [[HorrifyingTheHorror fears]], which is one ''hell'' of an accomplishment.

* CrazyEnoughToWork

* CrazyEnoughToWorkCrazyEnoughToWork: His insanity gives him the ability to come up with bizarrely irrational but effective plans. He stopped a prison riot a jailbreak at Arkham by inciting a riot between the inmates.

* TerrorHero: In the original comics Creeper used to pull a scare shtick by pretending he was not human, describing the horrible fates of his enemies, laughing and acting weirdly to make his enemies panic (and loving every minute of it). This worked well enough that he actually managed to make one less hard-boiled guy faint.
