*** Interesting to note is that Fugate, known for his LudicrousPrecision, actually got the math ''wrong'' here. Between every two sequential numbers on a clock, there are 4 tick marks, and since a clock takes 60 minutes to go from one number to the next, that means every 12 minutes, the hour hand moves to the next tick mark. So at 3:12, the clock's hour hand would have moved to the next tick mark, and thus '''the hands wouldn't have fully closed together until 3:16. ''The ScheduleFanatic was off by a single minute.''' ''

* GasChamber: Clock King traps Batman in a bank vault with a vacuum pump that's rapidly sucking in the available air. (Clock King is GenreSavvy enough to point out that he knows Batman [[CrazyPrepared would carry a gas mask with him]], so he's opted to just remove ''everything''). It's also [[TimeBomb wired to blow]] if it's picked up to try and prevent Bats from fiddling with it.

Added DiffLines:

* MustacheVandalism: One of Fugate's more benign attacks on Hill was to display a giant defaced poster of Hill after drawing a crowd onto the street by sabotaging the traffic signals.

* MeanBoss: Threatening to fire an employee for being five minutes late seems mean to a normal human being, but Fugate is a ScheduleFanatic who only cares for punctuality. If you're a punctual employee, Fugate would be civil to you, but never appreciative.

* MisplacedRetribution: Fugate can't blame himself. He could blame the world, but there's no way to revenge himself on that. Instead, he goes after Mayor Hill, a physical entity he can both blame ''and'' revenge upon.

to:

* MisplacedRetribution: Rather than blaming, say, the person suing him, or the judge who upheld the conviction despite Fugate's tardiness being clearly the result of an accident, Fugate can't blame himself. He could blame ends up blaming the world, but there's no way to revenge himself whole incident on that. Instead, he goes after Mayor Hill, a physical entity he can both blame ''and'' revenge upon.who's only crime was trying to help him.

* DisasterDominoes: Fugate fears he'll be ruined if he loses his legal hearing. When he breaks his schedule and dares to relax, he gets hit by a ball some children were playing with, a DramaticWind blows up the papers he needs for his hearing, and a playful dog accidentally gets him to fall into a park fountain. While he's physically unscathed by it all, he still ends up late to court and loses.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Killing a man because he recommended you relax, which wound up making you late? That's this trope alright.

* MythologyGag: Let's admit that "the Clock King" is a AtrociousAlias. So Fugate, who is NotWearingTights, who averts all the tropes under the EvilMakeover and [[TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse who looks just like everyone else]] [[ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames never uses that codename]].

to:

* MotiveMisidentification: Fugate's MotiveRant seems to blame Hill for ruining his company; instead, he's more upset that Hill ''made him late''.
* MotiveRant: Fugate explains the above to Hill while he's tied up in a DeathTrap.

* AmbiguousDisorder: The Clock King seems to possibly have asperger's syndrome.
* AdvantageBall: A middle-aged efficiency expert, fighting Batman? This should have been a CurbStompBattle, but Fugate has studied footage on Batman's fighting, so he knows [[LudicrousPrecision that it takes Batman exactly 1/20 of a second to throw a punch]]. As improbable as it sounds, Fugate manages to fight Batman to a standstill with using BlockingStopsAllDamage, NonchalantDodge and DeadlyDodging

* BondVillainStupidity: Fugate knows Batman will show up in time to stop him from getting revenge from Mayor Hill; to prevent that, he gets Batman in a DeathTrap. But he can't resist pulling a JustBetweenYouAndMe with [[TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat a mocking taped message left behind]]; Batman manages to repurpose the tape into one of the tools [[HoistByHisOwnPetard needed to escape]]. Had he left no message at all, it's likely the DeathTrap would have worked, as Batman was ready to try getting out with a cutting torch until Fugate's message informed him that he'd deliberately thought of that already, and made sure there wasn't enough time.

* CoolSword: Fugate has one, shaped like a clock's minute hand. Unfortunately for him, [[spoiler:what causes him to lose the fight at the end is when he accidentally jams it in one of the clock tower's internal gears, causing the entire structure to collapse.]]
