* In the ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'', the Red Panda and Flying Squirrel note eponymous themes are a common trait for "sick in the head, wannabe supervillains". It's first seen in the episode "Rabbit Season", where the Red Panda is able to set a trap for that episode's villain, Jack Rabbit, after recognizing that the reason for her unusually selective thefts was because she only stole things whose value was measured in karats.

** The Mad Monkey invokes this as much as he falls prey to it. He's motivated to be a villain because he views himself as the ideal arch-nemesis to the Red Panda. To this end, he embraces the theme presented by his power to control baboons by committing monkey related crimes.

* The Riddler and riddles. Sometimes treated as an actual psychological disorder. At one point, he ''tries'' to stop leaving riddles, without success. Usually, though, he makes his disorder work for him, as the ''obvious'' answer to his clue masks the ''real'' answer, which is much more difficult to figure out.

* The Riddler (Edward Nigma) and riddles. Sometimes treated It originated as a harmless theme, but became DarkerAndEdgier as the years went by: Riddler suffers from SuperOCD and narcissistic personality disorder, and ''has'' to leave puzzles to prove how smart he is (he's even been given a FreudianExcuse in the form of a father who, not understanding his son's intelligence, beat him, giving Nigma an actual psychological disorder. At obsession with expressing his smarts in convoluted ways). In one point, he ''tries'' to stop instance, Riddler thinks he's found a way around his compulsion by leaving riddles, without success. Usually, though, notes instead of riddles...but Batman discovers puzzles embedded within the notes that Nigma ''didn't intentionally leave''--in other words, he's so mentally ill that he makes doesn't even realize when he's acting on his disorder compulsions. However, he's also GenreSavvy enough to make this work for him, as him: sometimes, the ''obvious'' answer to his clue masks the ''real'' answer, which is much more difficult to figure out.


Added DiffLines:

** In other instances, Calendar Man is relatively sane and calm for most of the year...except on holidays, when he always commits some horrific themed crime (such as cutting a woman's brake line on April Fool's Day as a "prank" or attempting to blow up a maternity ward on ''Labor'' Day).

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, DependingOnTheWriter, may only commit crimes based on the theme of jokes or pranks. Alternatively, the crime itself must be "funny" (albeit according to the Joker's own highly warped sense of humor).

* Crazy Quilt (who's technically more of a Robin villain than a Batman one) was an artist who was also something of a cat burgler on the side. When an accident made him go blind, he opted for experimental surgery that restored his vision but distorted his perception of color, though he was a thief even before the accident that left him blind. He then went crazy and became obsessed with color.
* It's DependingOnTheWriter, but Catwoman has a tenancy to go after anything that has to do with cats.

* Maxie Zeus is a gang leader believes himself to be the reincarnation of the Greek god Zeus. [[WrongGenreSavvy He is not.]] It's almost laugable given that the Greek Gods existence is an established fact within the DC universe, what with [[ComicBook/WonderWoman a well-known superheroine]] tracing her origin back to Greek Mythology. The key word being ''almost'', as he's very intelligent and resourceful despite his delusions.
* Some of the villains made up for the ''1966 {{Series/Batman}}'' TV series make Batman's comic book rogues gallery seem calm subdued by comparison.
