* {{Foil}}: To Talia Al Ghul, Batman's other most prevalent love interest. They are both dark-haired, green-eyed women on the wrong side of the law who gleefully use their sex appeal as a weapon. Beneath the surface, however, they're perfect opposites; Selina, an AntiHero, is a thief who won't take a life unless there is no alternative, and has been known to play [[JustLikeRobinHood Robin Hood]] for the downtrodden of Gotham with her loot, and Talia, an AntiVillain, is an international terrorist who has been instrumental in many plots of mass-murder. Selina had only herself to answer to as an orphan trying to survive day-to-day on the streets, while Talia grew up in luxury as the daughter of Ra's Al-Ghul but spent her life being indoctrinated into his extreme philosophies. Selina revels in freedom and chaos, Talia preaches destiny and her father's grand plans. This also extends to their relationships with their younger sisters: Selina loves Maggie unconditionally and is never hesitant to drop everything if she needs her help, but Talia and Nyssa are usually [[CainAndAbel at each others' throats to a homicidal degree]].

* OddFriendship: With Alfred Pennyworth. He's a loyal butler and she's a morally ambiguous thief. Yet the two get along surprisingly well, with Alfred covering for her more benign crimes, [[spoiler:like stealing her wedding dress]] and the two will happily collaborate to occasionally messing with Bruce.

In the latter case two will happily collaborate to occasionally messing with Bruce.Bruce to remind him of his humility.

Added DiffLines:

* BiTheWay: An arc during the Genevieve Valentine run in the ComicBook/New52 era revealed that Selina is bisexual. There had been much fanservicey LesYay innuendo during earlier eras of the comic, but this arc treated it much more seriously and implied that she herself had only recently realized it. Though in Rebirth she marries Bruce Wayne.

On the film front, the character was portrayed by Creator/MichellePfeiffer in the 1992 film ''Film/BatmanReturns''. In 2004, a standalone Film/{{Catwoman}} movie starring Creator/HalleBerry was released, but the movie was a flop that had [[InNameOnly little in common]] with the comic character. She's been played by Creator/AnneHathaway in 2012's ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', although she's only ever named on screen as "Selina Kyle" and "The Cat", with the name "Catwoman" only being used in merchandise and other supplemental materials - perhaps to [[OldShame sever ties from the aforementioned Halle Berry flop]] or possibly just because of the trend in both the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'' that ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames. She might appear in a Film/DCExtendedUniverse adaptation of ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens''.

* SatisfiedStreetRat: When her backstory involves being TheRunaway or an urchin, Catwoman considers the fact she carved out a life for herself on the rough streets of Gotham, and came out a ClassyCatBurglar, something to be regarded with awe rather than pity.
