A list of characters in ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman''.


[[folder: Batman (Bruce Wayne)]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/AnthonyRuivivar

Bruce Wayne: Industrialist and philanthropist by day, masked crime-fighter at night. For those who would prey on the innocent... beware the Batman.
* {{Adorkable}}: In regards to his budding romance with Dr. Ravencroft. He's a little more smooth when dating Ava Kirk.
* AntiHero: Comes with the territory. This Batman, however, is more of a PragmaticHero than a KnightInSourArmor like the previous animated incarnations.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Tatsu in "Family".
* BadassBaritone: Almost to Creator/SteveBlum and Creator/KevinConroy levels.
* BadassInDistress: In "Secrets" and "Family", with a cliffhanger example in "Fall".
* BadassNormal: Yet another "comes with the territory" trope.
* BatmanGambit: His preferred modus operandi. UpToEleven in this particular incarnation.
* BerserkButton: In "Monsters," when it gets personal for Batman when he learns about the attacks on Old Gotham (which is where his parents were killed) and barely restrained himself when he learns [[spoiler: Sapphire was behind the attacks and after she dares asks him about Rex that she still loves, Batman nearly loses his temper towards her as though asking about her ex-lover Rex was an insult to him just after she heartlessly admitted to organizing an attack on the murder site of Bruce's own loved ones.]]
* BruceWayneHeldHostage: In "Family".
** Attempted by Pyg and Toad in "Hunted", but they nab Alfred instead.
* CatchPhrase: "Interesting"
** In "Nexus", he finally gets to say the classic Batman catchphrase. You know the one.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He gets hit with a door to a bank vault, which dislocates his shoulder... and he just pops said shoulder back into place while ''barely changing his facial expression''. He then proceeds to go about beating the crap out of the thugs he was fighting with only a minor look of discomfort on his face. In ''Sacrifice'', he and Katana jump off a multi-story building and land on their feet, barely breaking stride.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Vocally resembles a mix of Creator/SteveBlum and Creator/KevinConroy.
* TheCowl: Yet another "comes with the territory" trope..
* CrazyPrepared: He wouldn't be Batman if he wasn't this.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Yet another "comes with the territory" trope.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He wears an all-black costume, but is a hero nonetheless.
* DatingCatwoman: Averted in regards to his relationship with Magpie. His gestures of kindness to her in "Attraction" was because he wanted her to be treated fairly. She ended up getting the wrong idea and became fixated on him because she thought Batman was expressing this trope.
* DeadpanSnarker: Almost enough of one to match Alfred. His quips while fighting villains are almost reminiscent of a much drier and more serious Franchise/SpiderMan.
* DistressedDude: In episode 2, courtesy of Magpie.
* DoesNotLikeGuns: Yet another "comes with the territory" trope.
* EnemyMine: With Simon Stagg in "Toxic". Justified, because he was using Stagg as bait to lure Metamorpho to his company to cure him.
* GeniusBruiser: A great fighter and a GreatDetective.
* GreatDetective: This incarnation of Batman is more focused on his detective skills than other incarnations.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: [[spoiler:Following Alfred's leave of absence, he starts to go down this route when he became more risk-taking and brooding, until his HeelRealization after nearly beating Killer Croc to death.]]
* TheHero: A play on the trope. We, the audience, see Batman/Bruce Wayne as the hero of this story but Bruce himself considers Gordon, the honest and ByTheBookCop to be the hero while he himself is VigilanteMan.
-->''These are the roles we play.''
* HyperAwareness: Shows that he has this in episode 11 and claims that it's always on.
* HypocriticalHumor: For a guy who's rather secretive, he doesn't like secrets being kept from him. Lampshaded by Alfred.
* MoralityChain: In an interesting role-reversal, he's this to Katana.
* TheNeedless: He lives on nutrition shakes and three hours of daily sleep and is working on methods of getting by with still less.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: He remains stone-cold serious as Magpie attempts to distract him, and as alert as ever.
* ParentalAbandonment: Yet another "comes with the territory" trope because once again... ''[[MemeticMutation HIS PARENTS ARE]]'' '''''[[MemeticMutation DEEAAAAAAAD]]!!!'''''
* PragmaticHero: He has ideals that he is unwilling to compromise, but he's also willing to make sacrifices and manipulate people.
* SherlockScan: Performs a flawless one on Tatsu and another later in the same episode in Ravencroft's office.
* TheSnarkKnight: Not as much as Katana, but close.
* SociallyAwkwardHero: Specifically regarding his interest in the opposite sex. He's charismatic and suave when it comes to interacting with people on a professional level, but he's a giant dork when it comes to romance.
* SociopathicHero: [[spoiler:When Batman grows to become more risk-taking and brooding, he even starts to show LackOfEmpathy towards criminals, even those with some redeeming qualities such as Sapphire Stagg, however, following his HeelRealization after unleashing a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Killer Croc, he averts this by retaining his empathy and morality and calling out Deathstroke in the final episode for not having empathy like himself.]]
* TheStoic: As per usual.
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler: Katana notes that ever since Alfred's departure, he's been taking bigger and bigger risks and has been more brooding than before.]]
** [[spoiler: An example would be at the end of "Monsters," when Batman shows NoSympathy towards Sapphire, who expresses her love and concern for Rex after condescendingly admitting to be behind the Old Gotham attacks. Although it may have something to do with not wanting to show vulnerability towards criminals, possibly after his experience trying to show sympathy towards Magpie that drops his guard and nearly get him (and later Katana) killed. However, Old Gotham was also the site of Bruce's parents' murders, so Batman [[BerserkButton on a personal level doesn't take too lightly on the one responsible for trying to desecrate that area vital to him]].]]
* TroubledButCute: This version even moreso than most.
* TheUnreveal: Bruce Wayne is Batman. What a shocker, right? Well, to Tatsu in episode 7, it is.
* WhatTheHellHero: Receives one from Tatsu when he reveals that [[spoiler: he's been using her to turn the League of Assassins against each other. Tatsu calls him out for getting Bruce Wayne killed, Dr. Ravencroft's soul removed from her, and Lady Shiva obtaining the Soultaker Sword]].
** She calls him out again in "Nexus", when his plan to clear himself from the assassination attempt on Mayor Grange involves [[spoiler:kidnapping Harvey Dent and drawing out Anarky, as he wouldn't expect such an unexpected move from him. This barely works, as they nearly get killed by Anarky's explosives, nearly pits Gordon and Batman against each other, and fuels Dent's hatred of Batman.]]
* WouldHitAGirl: He doesn't hold back against Magpie. They [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] this.

[[folder: Alfred Pennyworth]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/JBBlanc

A former member of MI6, the British Secret Service, he took a job as a butler and bodyguard for Dr. Thomas Wayne and his family after he retired. After his employers were murdered, Alfred raise their orphaned son, Bruce. As Bruce grew, Alfred trained him in criminology, computer hacking, forensics, and martial arts, preparing Bruce for his future as Batman. Alfred helps Bruce by tracking down leads and examine evidence from the Batcave while Bruce worked in the field. During his time in the MI6, his partner died in a "car accident" and he became the godfather to his daughter, Tatsu Yamashiro.

* AdaptationalBadass: This show plays up Alfred's {{MI6}} backgground and is active in helping train Bruce and even helps in the fields at times himself.
* AffectionateNickname: Tatsu gives him "Major" as one.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Why he leaves after "Reckoning".]]
* BadassInDistress: When he gets captured by Prof. Pyg and Mr. Toad.
* BaldOfAwesome: In contrast to most versions of Alfred, who're just balding.
* BattleButler: More so than most other versions of Alfred, who only break out the asswhooping when the situation calls for it; this Alfred takes a direct approach to making sure that Batman's on the ball.
* CouldSayItBut: In "Allies", he indirectly tells Tatsu that she can go help Batman after Batman told her to stay behind thinking she's not ready yet.
-->'''Tatsu''': This is stupid. We should be out there backing him up. Doesn't it bother you to sit here? You're trained for this. Why does he think he could do it himself?\\
'''Alfred''': Actions, not words, get the job done. Understand?\\
'''Tatsu''': Perfectly.
* DeadpanSnarker: As always, Alfred's at the top of his game in this department.
** ServileSnarker: A staple for the character.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[ComicBook/{{RED}} Paul Moses]].
* LanternJawOfJustice: As the above image shows.
* MajorlyAwesome: Tatsu calls him "Major", indicating he holds (or once held) this rank, possibly in MI6.
* MissionControl: Is this for Batman.
* MoralityChain: To Bruce AND Batman. [[spoiler: More evident once he departs after the black out]]
* MoreDakka: He seems to enjoy using big guns.
* NiceGuy: As usual, he's very proper and polite, if rather snarky.
* NiceHat: Wears a stylish bowler hat in promotional art and the full opening, and in the show itself starting with "Safe".
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: [[spoiler: His attempts to amend things with Slade Wilson after the blackout lead to the former's career as an assassin ruined and being left for dead, giving him both new motivation to get his revenge on Alfred and revealing his new status and current location in Gotham City.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Hinted to be one for Bruce, as per usual. Possibly for Katana as well, to a lesser extent.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler: After the events of "Reckoning", Alfred leaves Wayne Manor to amend the things he done in the past, but he promises if he's needed he'll be there.]]
** TheBusCameBack: [[spoiler: He returns at the end of "Animal".]]
* RetiredBadass: There are constant mentions to his MI6 past.
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Briefly wields one against Silver Monkey in "Safe".
* TheUnreveal: Alfred knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman. What a shocker, right? Well, to Tatsu in episode 7, it is.
* YouKilledMyFather: [[spoiler:He killed Tatsu's father after Ra's forced him to turn traitor, though she later learns that her father in fact let himself be killed by Alfred rather than kill him as ordered.]]

[[folder: Katana (Tatsu Yamashiro)]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/SumaleeMontano

A former member of the C.I.A. who infiltrated the League of Assassins under the name "Katana". After seeing how dangerous the the sword was, she decided to steal the Soultaker Sword and fake her death, seeing how it was too dangerous even in the hands of the C.I.A. When she was young, her father died in a "car accident". His partner, Alfred Pennyworth, became her godfather. Alfred contacted her to become a personal bodyguard and driver of Bruce Wayne which she accepted.
* AntiHero: She's arrogant, quick to anger, and distrustful of Batman, yet has a strong sense of justice and a fairly good head on her shoulders.
* ActionGirl: As might be expected.
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Kung Fu Girl]]: Slightly. Though courteous in general, she clearly thinks less of people who don't measure up to her standards of toughness, referring to Bruce Wayne as a "marshmallow" and regarding the seemingly cushy lifestyle of Wayne Manor with obvious, if ''very'' polite, disdain.
%%* BadassNormal
* BackToBackBadasses: With Batman in "Family".
* BodyguardingABadass: Alfred brings her in to help protect Bruce Wayne.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: She easily jumps from the floor to a chandelier from practically a standing start. In Episode 10, ''Sacrifice'', she and Batman jump off a multi-story building and land on their feet, barely breaking stride.
* {{CIA}}: She used to be part of it to investigate Ra's al Ghul, but she instead discovered the Soultaker Sword, stole it, and went into hiding.
* ClarkKenting: The only difference between her civilian clothes and her superhero outfit is a meagre DominoMask.
* CombatStilettos: Particularly jarring when she spars with a barefooted Bruce in "Control", though they're strictly Combat High-Heeled Boots.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Tatsu sounds and looks quite similar to Creator/KellyHu here, albeit with a non-American accent.
* CoolSword: The Soultaker Sword, a green sword with calligraphy on the blade that can suck the soul from a person. It appears to be made of one piece of jade, hilt and all, yet is sharp enough to cut through other swords. [[spoiler:She loses it to Lady Shiva in "Family".]]
* DarkActionGirl: A rare heroic example. She's definitely a mite more on the morally grey side than the more traditional Batman sidekicks, especially considering that she isn't afraid to kill.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She was orphaned at a young age and was in the military and CIA, which weren't exactly cakewalks, but the capper was that she worked undercover for the League Of Assassins.
** Even worse still, she faked her own death and went into hiding in order to keep the Soultaker Sword from falling into the wrong hands.
* DeadpanSnarker: Emphasis on the deadpan part. She seems to have learned a thing or two from Alfred.
* DeathGlare: She seems to have one every time Dr. Burr tries to get closer to her.
* DefectorFromDecadence: She faked her own death to leave the League of Assassins.
* DominoMask: What she chooses to wear when she becomes Batman's partner.
* FragileSpeedster: Comparatively speaking. She seems to be faster and more agile than Batman and Silver Monkey, but not as capable of taking punishment.
* GoodIsNotNice: Former CIA, former League of Assassins. Pretty much comes with the territory that she's willing to do things that Batman isn't.
* GoodIsNotSoft: If she's forced to get in a fight, ''she won't hold back''. One of the assassins would've learned this the hard way had Batman not intervened. Though this becomes less of an issue as she undergoes Batman's traning. In episode 17, she even calls Batman out when he [[spoiler:seemingly killed Metamorpho]].
* HatesBeingTouched: She shows signs of this when Dr. Burr hugs her after she saved him.
* HellbentForLeather: She wears a leather jacket.
* HiddenDepths: Turns out she enjoys playing video games.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Silver Monkey accuses her of being this when she calls him for using hidden claws that he had previously considered "dishonorable weapons". He claims she has no room to be making any judgements on honor, seeing that she stole the Soultaker Sword and ran away from the League of Assassins. [[SubvertedTrope In truth, she never had any loyalty]] to the League to begin with because she was a mole for the C.I.A.
* {{Irony}}: She thinks of Batman as a lunatic and yet she is unknowingly working for him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's abrasive, but is still on the side of good.
* KatanasAreJustBetter[=/=]TheyCallHimSword: She's called Katana. She also uses katanas [[spoiler: after the League of Assassins reclaim the Soultaker Sword.]]
* TheLancer: To Bats.
* TheMole: She was actually a mole the C.I.A. planted in the League of Assassins.
* MoralityChain: Batman is hers.
* MsFanservice: Though not as much, unlike other major female characters like Magpie or Lady Shiva, [[MaleGaze but several episodes feature a closeup of Katana's rear]].
* NonIndicativeName: Her name's Katana, but the Soultaker Sword is straight and double-edged. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as her codename was given to her before she stole the the sword. [[spoiler: After she loses the Soultaker Sword, she uses katanas instead and thus her name is no longer non indicative.]]
* TheSnarkKnight: Odds are that she's inherited it from Alfred.
* TheStoic: Almost as much as Batman himself, which is really saying something.
** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:When Batman reveals his identity to her and Alfred revealing that he's working with him.]]
* SweetTooth: "Instinct" reveals that she likes ice cream.
* TroubledButCute: See DarkAndTroubledPast.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A towards Jason.
* WhatTheHellHero: She gives this to Batman after revealing that [[spoiler: he's been using her to turn the League of Assassins against each other. She calls him out for getting Bruce Wayne killed, Dr. Ravencroft's soul removed from her body, and Lady Shiva obtaining the Soultaker Sword]].
** She calls him out again in Nexus when his plan to clear himself from the assassination attempt on Mayor Grange involves [[spoiler:kidnapping Harvey Dent and drawing out Anarky, as he wouldn't expect such an unexpected move from him. This barely works, as they nearly get killed by Anarky's explosives, nearly pits Gordon and Batman against each other, and fuels Dent's hatred of Batman.]]
** And yet again in Monsters when [[spoiler: Batman seemingly kills Metamorpho while attempting to prevent his escape.]]

[[folder: Batcomputer]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/JBBlanc

* DeadpanSnarker
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: When Batman has to break through the manor security, the computer and him have an exchange similar to this:
-->'''Batcomputer''': Be careful, Batman.\\
'''Batman''': Thank you. Goodbye for now, computer.
* LiteralMinded: When asked where Humpty Dumpty's last address was, it says "A wall".
* ShooOutTheClowns: In "Alone", [[spoiler:Deathstroke mutes him when stealing the Batmobile]] just in time for the final battle.

!League of Assassins
[[folder: Ra's al Ghul]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/LanceReddick

The leader of the League of Assassins. Tatsu Yamashiro was sent to infiltrate the League of Assassins to investigate him. Little is known about him at this time.
* AdaptationOriginConnection: He's heavily involved in both Alfred and Katana's origins. Causing the death of Edogawa Yamashiro has Alfred rretiring to become a butler to the Waynes and puts Katana towards her path to finding the Soultaker Sword.
* AdaptationalJerkass: His actual motivations are unclear, but he doesn't seem to have the WellIntentionedExtremist goals of his comic counterpart. On the other hand, he seems hellbent on focusing on Gotham only, so the rest of the world doesn't have to deal with genocidal plots.
* AffablyEvil: Acts very polite despite his ruthlessness, and even compliments Batman despite outright dominating him in their fight.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He's got Batman's ''number'' in hand-to-hand combat. Batman even admits he can't beat him.
* ArcVillain: Him and his organization are the main antagonists of the first half of the series, with the second half of the series going to Deathstroke.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* BadassNormal: Much like Batman, it's all skill.
* BadassBoast: When threatened with the Soultaker Sword, he calmly boasts that even if Batman did take his soul, the League would get the sword back eventually and his soul would be restored.
* BeardOfEvil: After being revived, he uses the Ion Cortex to plunge all of Gotham into darkness, and has captured Batman.
* CarnivalOfKillers: [[spoiler: Arranges one in "Reckoning" with Batman's previously beaten, jailed enemies.]]
* TheCorrupter: Attempts to be this for Tatsu, [[spoiler:trying to convince her to kill Alfred for letting her father die.]]
* CurbStompBattle: His first fight with Batman ends decisively in his favor, and his second fight nearly ends the same way until Batman reveals he was stalling.
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler: In spirit, if not necessarily literally. Batman defeats him by freeing the trapped souls of his enemies from the Soultaker. The vengeful spirits proceed to drag down a deep elevator shaft.]]
* EvilOldFolks
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: The show never goes into his motivations for ''why'' he's specifically targeting Gotham for his goals or why he wants to conquer it.
* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler: Batman thwarting his plans prompts him to compliment Bats and say that he always wondered what it was like to lose.]]
* GreaterScopeVillain: His invasion of Gotham causes Alfred to leave, Harvey Dent to become District Attorney, and Barbara Gordon to become more involved in crime fighting, all important plots in the second half of the season.
* HumanPopsicle: He's in some sort of cryogenic suspension when we first see him.
* KnightOfCerebus: His appearance marks Batman's first major defeat in the series and nearly brings Gotham to its knees. And the rammifications of his actions have lasting effects on Batman's team and on Gotham.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Beyond his fights with Batman and personally approaching the villains in "Reckoning", he mostly sits on a chair, having the League do most of the dirty work for him.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Some of his dialogue points to this.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Offers this to Batman a few times.
* WorthyOpponent: Even though he's Batman's better in combat, he still considers Batman this.

[[folder: Lady Shiva]]
-->Voiced by: Finola Hughes

A mysterious and highly dangerous martial artist with a position of authority in the League of Assassins.
* AffablyEvil: She's quite polite to her enemies.
* BadassInCharge: She's a high-ranking lieutenant in the League of Assassins.
* BadassNormal: Just like Batman, it's all skill.
* BadBoss: Not above threatening her men with death if they fail.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:She manages to thwart Silver Monkey's planned takeover and reclaim the Soultaker Sword.]]
* BareYourMidriff
* BeautyMark: Below her right eye.
* ColdBloodedTorture: [[spoiler: What she promises to put Silver Monkey through.]]
* CombatStilettos: And they slow her down not one bit.
* DarkActionGirl
* TheDragon: Appears to be this for Ra's al Ghul.
* TheDreaded: As she puts it.
-->'''Lady Shiva''': ''(To Silver Monkey, after his henchman refuse to attack her)'' I'm afraid they fear me more than they fear you, old friend.
* EvilBrit: Seems to have a British accent.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Subtle, but noticeable.
* TheFaceless: We only hear her voice in "Safe".
* MsFanservice: She sports a tight, midriff-bearing, [[{{Gainaxing}} Gainax-approved]] outfit.
* NotSoDifferent: Pulls this on Katana in "Sacrifice" stating that while Batman is a noble hero, at her core, Katana is a cold-blodded killer like her. Batman [[ShutUpHannibal quickly shuts her up.]] and Katana later proves her wrong.
* RaceLift: She appears to be South Asian like her namesake, as opposed to Chinese like she is in the comics.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives an epic one to Silver Monkey.
-->'''Lady Shiva''': While you may possess the unique skillset necessary to lead the League of Assassins, your [[spoiler: bid to displace me]] was always doomed because of two simple, unavoidable truths: Nothing happens in the league without me knowing it, and... you are not me.
* SoftSpokenSadist: Her voice is remarkably mellow even as she [[spoiler: sucks out Ravencroft's soul and promises to torture Silver Monkey for his betrayal.]]
* StatuesqueStunner
* TheVoice: She had yet to make a physical appearance until "Family".
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: It's never made clear what happened to her after the episode Reckoning]]

[[folder: Silver Monkey]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/JamesRemar

An assassin working for the League of Assassins. Has some sort of past with Katana.

* AnimalMotifs: The monkey, obviously.
* ArchEnemy: Seems to be one for Katana.
* ArmedLegs: He has hidden knives in the toes of his boots.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy
* BadassBaritone: As per usual for James Remar.
* BadassNormal
* BadassBoast:
--> '''Batman''': It only gets worse from here.
--> '''Silver Monkey''': Worse for ''who''?
* CharacterDevelopment: Out of the villains on this page, he got the lion's share.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: For starters, he managed to destroy a table just by stomping on it.
* ColorCharacter: ''Silver'' Monkey.
* CombatPragmatist: He doesn't even try to fight fair.
* CoolMask
* DodgeTheBullet: Does a less flashy version of it.
--> '''Alfred:''' The ones that can dodge bullets are always the most troublesome.
* TheDragon: To Lady Shiva.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler:Turns out he was trying to overthrow her.]]
* EnemyMine: With Batman in "Darkness", [[spoiler:which leads to his death.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep
* TheFaceless: We never see the face behind his mask.
* HonorBeforeReason: [[spoiler: After Batman helps him escape, he returns to save Batman from Lady Shiva at the cost of his life.]]
--> '''Silver Monkey''': Freedom is nothing without honor.
* KilledOffScreen: [[spoiler: We last see him battle Lady Shiva and losing. We later see Shiva holding his mask as a way to threaten Alfred and Katana.]]
* LatexPerfection: His bodyguard disguise turns out to be this.
* LightningBruiser
* MalevolentMaskedMan
* ManiacMonkeys: Not literally, but his name and his demonic monkey mask are clearly trying to evoke this image.
* {{Ninja}}
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* OptOut: Pretty aware of when the odds are against him.
* OutGambitted: [[spoiler:His plot to overthrow Lady Shiva would've worked had Shiva herself not found out about it.]]
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: He saves Batman from Lady Shiva, and ended up paying for it with his life.]]
* RunningOnAllFours
* SmokeOut: He uses smoke pellets to blind his opponents or to escape.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Tries to obtain the Soultaker Sword in a bid to overthrow Lady Shiva. It backfires horribly for him.]]
* TrickedOutShoes: He has knife blades concealed in the toes of his boots.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Though whether the hair's a part of his mask or not remains to be seen.
* WolverineClaws
* WouldHitAGirl: Doesn't hold back against Katana.

[[folder: Cypher]]
-->Voiced by: N/A

A cybernetic mercenary with mind-control powers hired by the League of Assassins to steal the secrets of the Ion Cortex from Jason Burr's mind.

* AdaptationalBadass: His comics incarnation was a regular guy who was merely an accomplished hypnotist. Here, he's a superpowered cyborg.
* AscendedExtra: The writers had to confirm he was canon.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:Cypher might not have been able to steal the secrets of the Ion Cortex, but Jason still remains under his control.]]
* CombatTentacles: His WeaponOfChoice, and they're strong enough to casually toss a full grown person like a ragdoll.
* ControlFreak: Subtley implied to be this. Cypher works best when he's in complete control of a situation, but when something happens that takes away that control, he panics and is forced to improvise, something he's not good at doing. Lampshaded by Batman.
-->'''Batman''': How does it feel to have someone else in control?
* CreepyMonotone: How he talks. Also extends to anyone under his control.
* CoolHelmet
* {{Cyborg}}: By his own admission.
-->'''Cypher''': A machine? No, I'm a man just like you, only upgraded. You should try it. It's a rush.
* DemonicPossession: His MindControl works like this.
* EvilLaugh: On occasion. And when he gives one, it's terrifying.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Considering parts of his armor glow, one has to wonder how he manages to slip by unnoticed.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Batman defeats him by jamming his tendrils into the back of his skull, electrocuting him severely.
* InNameOnly: Cypher's by far the most altered character to appear in the show, having very little in common with the obscure original villain beyond being an assassin with a propensity for mind control - and even so, the kind of mind control is entirely different (the original was an assassin known for using a CompellingVoice to lure targets into traps). If not for WordOfGod claiming that none of the villains in the show are original characters, he might even be considered a CanonForeigner.
* LeanAndMean
* LongRangeFighter: Prefers to let his brainwashed victims fight for him.
* MindControl: He can control minds by attaching his tentacles at the base of the skull. He can only control up to two people at once, though.
* MindControlEyes: Anyone under his control will have GreenEyes like him.
* PeoplePuppets: He uses his tentacles to control his victims like marionettes and can speak through them.
* PoweredArmor
* RoboticPsychopath: As Batman puts it.
-->'''Batman''': They've never sent a psychotic machine before.
* SicklyGreenGlow
* TheSpeechless: Played with. Cypher ''can'' talk, but only through his controlled victims.
* {{Synchronization}}: He feels whatever his brainwashed victims feel.
* WallCrawl: His preferred method of travel.

!Gotham Underworld
[[folder: Professor Pyg]]
-->Voiced by: Brian George

An ecoterrorist who intends to hunt down and eliminate the main investors in a land deal that had destroyed a wetlands animal preserve.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: That bonesaw would have to be, seeing as how he can cut clean through metal pipes in a single swing and bury it in concrete.
* AdaptationOriginConnection: He's responsible for Kirk Langstrom becoming Man-Bat, instead of an experiment gone wrong.
* AdaptationalBadass: He's not afraid to go one on one with Bats.
* AdaptationalHeroism: While still not a saint by any means, his motivations are somewhat more sympathetic than the comics version, [[AffablyEvil he's very polite]], and seems to care for his subordinate, Mr. Toad.
* AffablyEvil: He's rather polite and makes it an issue when Mr. Toad incorrectly calls Batman "Batguy", on the grounds that they should respect their enemies. He also shows concern for Mr. Toad's eyesight. He even freely gives medical advice to his enemies, though the level of "helpfulness" in his advice tends to vary, like him believing he had to amputate Alfred's broken ankle.
* AllThereInTheManual: His real name was never stated in the show, but a magazine revealed that his real name, like in the comics, is Lazlo Valentin.
* AnimalWrongsGroup: Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad are [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned Eco-Terrorists]] that care for wildlife.
* BagOfHolding: Pyg's bag is capable of holding his blunderbuss.
* BaldOfEvil: He's shown to be completely bald when seen anywhere else other than face on.
* BerserkButton: Depsite his refined mannerism, harming Mister Toad is a good way to get on his bad side.
-->'''Professor Pyg''': ''(after Ra's Al Ghul strikes Mister Toad)'' ''That'' was ''regrettable''.
* DeadlyDoctor: His weapons are modified outdated medical equipment.
* EvilBrit: Speaks in a British accent.
* FatBastard: Though it's possible that it could also be muscle.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad capture several billionaires and business men for this reason.
* {{Irony}}: Seems to like this mindset, as he hunts the people who he feels were destroying nature (with a particular type of rifle and even a blowdart) in a fashion he feels befits their "crime".
* {{Leitmotif}}: Not as prominent as Anarky's, but he and Mr. Toad are usually accompanied by banjo and cimbalom, that creates a tune reminiscent of the Victorian era they style themselves after (think the music from the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes movie).
* LighterAndSofter: Considering how dark Pyg's debut arc was, it's only natural it was toned down for a show on a channel aimed at pre-teens. The show's portrayal of Professor Pyg is a well-mannered criminal genius instead of the deranged sadist that he is in the comics.[[note]]To elaborate, Pyg in the comics basically made ComicBook/TheJoker look sane.[[/note]]
** Despite this, Pyg is still one of the darker villains seen thus far, attacking Batman with a ''bone saw'' in his first appearance, with his second appearance containing a reference to ''Franchise/{{Saw}}''.
* LightningBruiser: Despite his large size, he proves to be a nimble combatant.
* MadDoctor: Professor Pyg uses bonesaws and scalpels, and shows medical knowledge. His attire, these weapons, and his eagerness to amputate Alfred's injured leg suggest that he draws influence from the superstitious and ineffective doctors of old -- the type who'd break out the leeches and bloodletting blades over the most minor of ailments.
* MadScientist: In "Doppelganger", he alters Kirk Langstrom's serum to turn him into Man-Bat and tries to replicate it to turn others into human/animal hybrids.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: Despite being LighterAndSofter in comparison to his comicbook counterpart, he still wears a NightmareFuel-inducing pig mask.
* MythologyGag: Professor Pyg's primary weapons are a bonesaw and scalpels, a reference to the fact that he often performs ([[MadDoctor completely insane and horrifying]]) surgery in the comics.
* PetTheDog: He seems to seriously care for Mr. Toad.
* PigMan: It's just a mask, but he fits the bill.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: To the point where he's probably doing it intentionally, like Anarky's chess motif in his first appearance.
* RhymesOnADime: A commercial for the show splices his dialog to make him talk like this, but he doesn't really do it on the show itself.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Mister Toad.
* WeaponOfChoice: His bonesaw seems to be his favorite tool to use. In "Instinct", he even briefly considered using it on his second victim before going with his blunderbuss.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Wants to protect nature at all costs. This doesn't stop him from deriving enjoyment from it, like giving people what he feels is ironic comeuppance.
* WickedCultured: He dresses in a fine suit and talks with a sense of high culture.

[[folder: Mr. Toad]]
-->Voiced by: Udo Kier

The assistant to Professor Pyg.

* AnimalWrongsGroup: Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad are [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well-Intentioned Eco-Terrorists]] that care for wildlife.
* AdaptationalBadass: Toad in the comics could only slip out of tricky situations. Here, he can jump high, knows CaneFu, and has a supersonic croak that can throw people around.
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: "Doppleganger", Pyg's plan is not only to create an army of human-animal hybrids, but also to turn a woman into a wife for Toad. At first it's a random woman, but when Katana allows her to escape, he settles for her.
* AscendedExtra: Barely counts as one of Batman's foes in the comics where he was promptly killed off.
* AxCrazy: Has shades of this, what with enjoying methods of causing harm to people.
* [[BattleButler Battle Chauffeur]]: He serves as a chauffeur and a lackey for Professor Pyg.
* CartoonBomb: Likes chucking these at people.
* TheDragon: To Professor Pyg.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Like his boss Professor Pyg, Mr. Toad genuinely cares about nature and wildlife, but he's also a lot more AxCrazy than his boss and takes greater enjoyment in hurting others.
* GlassCannon: His croak is often powerful enough to send people flying. But a single kick is usually enough to incapacitate him.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad capture several billionaires and business men for this reason.
* MakeMeWannaShout: He has a supersonic croak that can send people flying and shatter glass.
* {{Mutant}}: Appears to be a mutant frog or something.
* NiceHat: Sports a brown cap.
* PsychopathicManchild: See AxCrazy above.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Has red irises with yellow sclera.
* {{Thememobile}}: Drives a car straight out of ''Literature/TheWindInTheWillows''.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Professor Pyg.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He's less in the "well-intentioned" department than Pyg, but he does seem to care about nature and wildlife.
* WickedCultured: Less so than Professor Pyg, but still wickedly cultured.

[[folder: Simon Stagg]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/JeffBennett

The owner and CEO of Stagg Enterprises and the father of Sapphire Stagg.

* BadBoss: When he sees that his security team failed to stop Metamorpho, he fires them.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: He acts all nice and understanding towards Sapphire's decision to be with Rex when she's around, but the truth comes out when Batman shows her the video of him gassing Rex.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Bruce mentions that Stagg's been part of many more shady dealings in business.
* DirtyCoward: Was going to offer double the amount of money Michael Holt was going to offer to Professor Pyg if he only let him out and was willing to keep quiet about what Professor Pyg will do to Holt and Alfred.
* EnemyMine: With Batman in "Toxic". Justified, because Batman was using him as bait to lure Metamorpho to his company to cure him.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Had he not mutated Rex into Metamorpho, he wouldn't have been thrown into a series of events that discredited him. In "Allies", it's revealed that his actions got him arrested.
* HornedHairdo
* {{Jerkass}}: Not the nicest guy around, to say the least.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Pyg and Toad try to kill him over something fairly mundane (for a businessman like him), rather than all the other malicious stuff he does.
* LaserGuidedKarma: See HoistByHisOwnPetard.
* NotMeThisTime: When military powered armor is being used to run people out of old Gotham, Batman pegs Simon as the only man with the resources and motive. Simon counters that it's too overt for him and mocks Batman for being misled. [[spoiler:Turns out it's actually his daughter.]]
* OverprotectiveDad: He's so against his daughter dating Rex Mason that he's willing to use him as a guinea pig for his project.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Batman basically ruins Stagg's life, though he had it coming.
* RelationshipSabotage: He does this to Rex and Sapphire, which ends badly for them and himself.
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: He's traditionally a Metamorpho villain.
* SmugSnake
* UngratefulBastard:
** In "Hunted", after Alfred broke his ankle saving him and Michael Holt, he was willing to abandon him and he doesn't even thank Batman for rescuing him, but scolds him for almost getting them killed.
** In "Toxic", he tries to pin the blame for Metamorpho's transformation on Batman after Batman saved him from Rex.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart
* WoundedGazelleGambit: He actually tries to pull one of these in "Toxic", making it sound like he was just an innocent victim and it was all Batman's fault. Too bad he didn't count on Batman finding the video footage he deleted and already sending it to the police.

[[folder: Magpie (Margaret Sorrow)]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/GreyDeLisle

A thief with a tragic secret and a love for all things shiny.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: To Batman. She is by no means hideous, but her love of committing crimes and psychotic tendencies don't win her Batman's affections.
* AdaptationalBadass: This Magpie is capable of giving Bats a decent fight.
* AdaptationDistillation: Magpie of the comics was a clearly disturbed woman with extreme kleptomania who, while capable of putting together highly dangerous trinkets to replace the things she stole, quickly fell apart and came across as pitiable. The Magpie seen here is clearly able to hold her own against Batman and, while disturbed and in love with shiny things, has yet to break down and go on full-blown rants about wanting them.
* AdaptationExpansion: Her origin story here is both rather complex and pretty ''screwed up'', and it's also expanded on more than it ever was in the comics. Because of this, she's still quite pitiable, and she still retains her obsessive love of pretty, shiny things.
* AdaptationNameChange: From [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Margaret Pye]] to [[spoiler:Margaret Sorrow]].
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:She started off as a basically good person with kleptomania, but the treatment they gave her (which she volunteered for in hopes of being cured) ends up shattering her mind, and eventually erases her good persona entirely. Even after that, the Magpie persona is largely sympathetic, as beyond her compulsion to steal she mostly just wants to be loved; it's her complete lack of impulse control and her own emotions that makes her a villain. Even Batman feels sorry for her]], and of course because it's [[CrapsackWorld that kind of show]] his attempt to help her only makes things worse, which left Batman no choice, but come to the realization that she an outright irredeemable lost cause (especially when [[spoiler:her attempt on Katana's life in "Attraction," which counted as her MoralEventHorizon, prompts him to drop any he had sympathy for Magpie, despite him saying he really do not want to hurt her after saving Katana's life and before defeating her once more]]), not to mention a [[ManipulativeBitch bad]] [[NotSoDifferent influence]] on him. See TragicVillain below.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Like her avian namesake, Magpie doesn't really care how much the things she steals are worth, she only cares that they're pretty and shiny. Unlike other examples of this trope, it's not PlayedForLaughs and is outright frightening.
* AxCrazy: Expect this from a psychopath with a dissociative identity disorder. Even moreso in "Attraction," when she attempts to [[spoiler: kill Katana by burying her alive in a grave]].
* BareYourMidriff: As seen in the image.
%%* BrokenBird
* CatchPhrase: "Shiny, shiny," when she sees something she wants.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: No human could replicate half the things she does normally, much less in thigh high dominatrix heels.
* CloudCuckoolander: She's quite clearly off her rocker.
* CollaredByFashion: Her feathery shoulderpads are attached to the sides of it.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: She cares less about the actual value or practicality of the things she steals than how shiny they are.
* CompositeCharacter: Imagine Catwoman, but with the crazy adorableness of Harley Quinn.
* DarkActionGirl: She's more than capable of holding her own against Batman.
* DarkIsEvil: She even lampshades it during her NotSoDifferent speech with Batman.
--> '''Magpie:''' What is it that scares the Batman? Are you afraid that if you embrace the dark and only the dark you might begin to like it? That you might become free? Is that what you want to understand? What it felt like when they [[spoiler: buried Margaret Sorrow?]] That moment when I stepped completely into one side of myself? Well, I'll give you a little hint: It was a rush! You should try it sometime.
* DatingCatwoman: [[spoiler: She wants this with Batman, but it's a NoSell on his part.]]
* EvilWearsBlack: It's all she wears [[spoiler: aside from her wig]].
* {{Expy}}:
** Appears to be the show's version of Comicbook/{{Catwoman}}. Deconstructed in "Attraction", [[spoiler: where her unrequited attraction for Batman results in her becoming an obsessed stalker.]]
** Her obsessive, unreciprocated MadLove for Batman makes her the Dark Knight's own Harley Quinn.
* FeelNoPain: A side-effect of the HeelFaceBrainwashing left her unable to feel pain.
* FemmeFatalons: Which she also uses as WolverineClaws in combat.
* FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome: Quite tragically - [[spoiler: criminal Margaret Sorrow volunteered to have her mind altered so that she could become a better person... and it worked for a time. However, her personality not only started to revert over time, it did so in a fractured, disjointed way - only the very worst parts of her personality returned, unable to recall wanting to change. Ironically, this turned Magpie into something even worse than before.]]
* GadgeteerGenius: Something shared with the comics. Originally, Magpie would steal valuable objects and leave behind booby-trapped copies capable of maiming and killing when triggered. Here, she's capable of reverse-engineering a device that could alter a person's memories and personality.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Subtle, but it's there.
* HeelFaceBrainwashing: [[spoiler:Her origin is that she was a former criminal who volunteered for one of these. It worked for a time, but she eventually developed a villainous SplitPersonality and other mental issues]].
* IdentityAmnesia: Invoked [[spoiler: by Margaret Sorrow and the doctors who experimented on her]] and thus played very straight as "Cassie" - though a bit less cut and dry as Magpie, [[spoiler: who is a twisted remnant of her old self.]]
* MadLove: Her infatuation for Batman is disturbingly similar to the one Harley Quinn has for Joker.
* LightningBruiser: Incredibly agile, can take a lot of punishment, and can fight evenly with Batman.
* MadeOfIron: She takes full advantage of her inability to feel pain. Taking that into account, some of her stunts are downright superhuman, such as falling several stories onto a car and getting back up again with no apparent injuries.
* MeaningfulName: Her last name is [[spoiler: Sorrow, which is a reference to an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_for_Sorrow_%28nursery_rhyme%29 old nursery rhyme]] about magpies.]]
* MoodSwinger: Magpie can go from cheerful to angry in a split second. Clearly shown when she kicks Batman angrily, only to apologize afterwards. Unlike most examples, this makes her outright terrifying as there is literally ''no way'' of telling what comment will set her off on a homicidal rage.
* MsFanservice: Magpie was originally somewhat sexually designed in her original '80s design, but to update her appearance, the show's designers drew on fashion runway models and contemporary pop stars, specifically Music/LadyGaga, for her new appearance. As the only female antagonist identified early on, she's far more sexual than Katana. In fact, she's more sexual than most depictions of ''Catwoman''.
* NeverMyFault: Zig-zagged; [[spoiler: She blames the doctors who put her through the procedure that got rid of her memories, when in fact she volunteered for the procedure herself. The process made her forget that she had, and lead to the unintentional side-effects making her crazy.]]
* NotGoodWithRejection: Gets more violent when Batman rejects her advances.
* NotSoDifferent: Presses this several times with Batman.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: She looks a bit like Music/LadyGaga.
* OrgasmicCombat: Along with a risqué outfit, her fight scenes with Batman and Katana almost gives her an arousing effect on her, evidenced by her crazed, ecstasy-filled laughs when she evades from Batman in a chase scene in "Secrets" and when she ambushes Katana with Curare in "Attraction" as well as a [[LesYay orgasmic sigh with her first fight with Katana]] (which seemingly to Magpie, it is as if this fight appears to be GirlOnGirlIsHot in her eyes) in "Attraction."
* PoisonousPerson: Her WolverineClaws are tipped with Curare.
* PsychoticSmirk: She mostly sports this, as seen in the image above and sometimes it becomes a SlasherSmile (which she uses more frequently in "Attraction," showing how much her sanity has worsen since her last appearance).
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: At first, it seems like Professor Ravencroft might be Magpie. In reality however, it's really Cassie, the Professor's secretary.]]
* SheFu: Magpie's fighting style consists almost entirely of high kicks and acrobatic flips.
* SplitPersonality: In this case portrayed ''accurately''. [[spoiler: And by the episode "Attraction", [[SplitPersonalityTakeover the Magpie persona has taken over completely]].]]
* StalkerShrine: In prison, she kept a collection of Batman's pictures.
* StalkerWithACrush: [[spoiler:In "Attraction", towards Batman.]]
* StealthHiBye: Pulls one on ''Batman'' of all people while he's staking out Professor Ravencroft's office, knocking him out with his own handcuffs.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: She wears nothing but a corset, panties, and thigh-high leather boots. It's even mocked by Katana.
--> '''Katana:''' I mean, really? Neck feathers with a boussie? Kinda trashy, don't you think?
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler: "Margaret Sorrow is gone. There is only Magpie now."]]
* TragicVillain: [[spoiler: A kleptomaniac who genuinely wanted to reform and underwent memory alteration to do so only to become something even worse than before.]]
* VillainousBSOD: At the very end when Batman [[spoiler:exposes who she really is.]]
* WolverineClaws: How she utilizes her FemmeFatalons in battle.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: She's a thief with silver hair, [[spoiler:though it's actually a wig]].
* WrongGenreSavvy: Thinks her relationship with Batman is the same as [[DatingCatwoman the iconic Batman and Catwoman relationship]]. It isn't.
* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler:Towards Batman in "Attraction" after he talks to her regularly at Blackgate.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: She wears thigh-high leather boots.

[[folder: Anarky]]
-->Voiced by: Wallace Langham

A man who fashions himself as an agent of chaos, bringing pure and unbridled freedom no matter the cost.

* AdaptationDyeJob: His costume's red and gold in the comics, but it's nearly pure white here.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Anarky in the comics is an AntiVillain with good intentions who can sometimes be as heroic as the protagonists he battles. This Anarky is a self proclaimed sociopath and aimless terrorist that acts as a stand-in for the Joker.
* AffablyEvil: His first scene has him compliment two vandals on their creativity.
* AnarchyIsChaos: Unlike the comics version, this one seems to equate anarchy with chaos.
* AxCrazy: If this exchange is anything to go by.
-->'''Lady Shiva''': You dare strike a bargain with the League of Assassins? Are you mad?
-->'''Anarky''': Without question!
* BadassBookworm: His intelligence is what really makes him dangerous
* BadassNormal: Like Batman, he has no superpowers. Not that it makes him any less dangerous.
* BaddieFlattery: He genuinely admires Batman.
* BigBad: As described by the creators, Anarky is the primary villain of the series. While he's relegated to a BigBadEnsemble with Ra's Al Ghul, Harvey Dent, and Deathstroke later on, Anarky [[OverarchingVillain has a hand]] in every story arc.
* [[BroughtToYouByTheLetterS Brought To You By The Letter "A"]]: As seen in the above image.
* CardCarryingVillain: By his own admission, describing himself as an agent of chaos, and the polar opposite of Batman.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Later appearances downplay his obsession with ChessMotifs and being considered a WorthyOpponent to Batman, instead emphasizing his planner qualities. Additionally, instead of being upset that Batman doesn't consider him BigBad material, he seems amused by it and aims to remind Batman that he's still dangerous even if he's not a WorthyOpponent.
* TheChessmaster: He goes to some lengths to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this idea in his first appearance, to the point where his ChessMotifs can feel a little excessive. He even lampshades it. The motifs get dropped by his subsequent appearances, though he remains a ChessMaster.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Wallace Langham seems to be channeling Creator/NeilPatrickHarris mixed with a bit of Creator/HeathLedger.
* TheCorrupter: To Harvey Dent. While Dent was never a nice guy to begin with, he at least didn't use illegal methods to bring down Batman. Anarky quickly changed all of that and even egged on his behavior as [[spoiler: Two-Face]].
* DealWithTheDevil: Offers one to [[spoiler: Harvey Dent.]]
* EvilerThanThou: He is at one point on the receiving end of this by [[spoiler:Deathstroke]]'s hands. Doesn't make him a bit less smug.
* EvilCounterpart: To Batman.
* ExpressiveMask[=/=]LatexPerfection: Wears a mask under his hood.
* {{Expy}}: The parallels between him and Film/TheDarkKnightSaga's [[ComicBook/TheJoker Joker]] are too obvious to ignore.
** He's also very similar to Comicbook/{{Nemesis}}, thanks to his white suit and use of gadgets. Both were basically created to be the anti-Batman.
* GadgeteerGenius: Though compared to Batman, the stuff he builds is designed to kill.
* GracefulLoser:
** In "Sacrifice", when even after his plan fails, he [[spoiler:gives Lady Shiva the refrigerated corpse of Ra's al Ghul]].
** In the final episode, "Alone", [[spoiler:he's seen trying to figure his next move against Batman and Katana, represented by a chessboard... [[KnowWhenToFoldEm But then knocks his chess piece over]], and figures that he might as well start over, realizing that he's been defeated, not even angry about it]].
* IGaveMyWord: In "Sacrifice", he made a deal with Lady Shiva where he would Ra's al Ghul's body in exchange for her taking part in his plan to cause a viral outbreak. He pretty clearly expected her to die in the outbreak, but despite her surviving and the outbreak failing, [[spoiler: he still kept his word in the end.]]
* InTheHood: In the comics, he wears some kind of hat with a wide brim, but he wears a hood in the show.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Accompanied by a sinister and aristocratic violin riff.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Deliberately sets up Batman and Lady Shiva to fight over releasing a deadly plague on Gotham.
* LightIsNotGood: His white costume contrasts his villainous nature.
* MadBomber: His role in "Nexus".
* MadeOfIron: Had to be to survive a thirty foot drop onto cold, harsh steel.
* ManBehindTheMan: Is this to Deathstroke in "Hero" and Harvey Dent from "Monsters" to "Alone". Deathstroke is quick to cut ties with Anarky when their agendas start to conflict with one another, but he was the one who hired him in the first place. He's a more straight example to Dent, as he pushed him into using illegal means of capturing Batman, and even groomed his descent into Two-Face.
-->'''Anarky''': Didn't you realize I could kill you [Dent] as easily as I created you?
* ManInWhite: Changed from red in the comics to provide a contrast to Batman's DarkIsNotEvil.
* ManipulativeBastard: As seen when he pits Batman and Lady Shiva against each other.
* NobleDemon[=/=]PragmaticVillainy: Even though Lady Shiva failed to cause the outbreak, he still returns [[spoiler: the frozen Ra's al Ghul]] to her unharmed. Given she lost a couple men in the exchange and could have died, it may have been for the equally pragmatic reason of keeping her from going after him.
* OverarchingVillain: In addition to being the overall BigBad, Anarky is the most recurring villain in the series.
* PsychopathicManchild: He shows definite hints of it, particularly when he seems about to throw a tantrum when Batman sees him as just another nutcase in a costume and not his diametric opposite like Anarky wants.
* SimpleStaff: Wields one during a fight with Batman.
* SmugSnake: His biggest weakness. Anarky's by no means stupid, but he gives himself too much credit. Toned down after his first appearance.
* TheSociopath: A manipulative terrorist with zero regard for others certainly makes him qualify.
* SoftSpokenSadist: In contrast to [[BadassBaritone Batman]], his voice is remarkably mellow.
* TookALevelInBadass: His fighting prowess and schemes actually seems to improve in following episodes.
** In "Sacrifice", he [[CurbStompBattle curb stomps]] 3 assasins to steal [[spoiler: Ra's Al Ghul's corpse]] and manages to manipulate both Batman and Lady Shiva into nearly starting a plague across Gotham.
** In "Nexus", he seems to give Batman a harder time in battle and is able to fight both him ''and'' Katana to a standstill. That's not even mentioning his plan [[spoiler: kidnap Harvey Dent and use him to blow up one of the parks in Gotham.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: "Do you have any ''idea'' what an ''honor'' it is to be my opponent? ''It's a really big deal!!''"
* WholeCostumeReference: Visually, he seems to take a few cues from ComicBook/MoonKnight and ComicBook/TheSpectre.
* WorthyOpponent: Thinks of Batman as one.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: He spells his name with a "k".

[[folder: Daedalus Boch & Junkyard Dog]]
-->Voiced by: Arif S. Kinchen (Daedalus) and Creator/CarlosAlazraqui (Junkyard Dog)

A couple of vandals that are "sponsored" in their destructive art by Anarky.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: Daedalus Boch in the comics was a demon-worshiping murderer who used the blood of his victims in his paint. Here, he just seems to be a petty vandal. [[spoiler: He also doesn't kill Junkyard Dog to unleash demons like he did in the comics.]]
* AscendedExtra: They're two of Batman's very lesser known villains from the comics. They first appeared in ''ComicBook/ArkhamAsylumLivingHell''. And the two appeared for a short while in "Secrets".
* ChekhovsGunman: They appear in "Secrets" as two taggers Batman scares off while spying on Dr. Ravencroft before making a proper debut in "Tests".
* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: Boch is never referred as Doodlebug.
* FatAndSkinny: Daedalus is the skinny, Junkyard Dog is the fat.
* NeverMyFault: Junkyard Dog seems to figure it out at the end of "Tests", but they seem to have persecution complexes, assuming that whenever they get arrested they're being "silenced by The Man", as opposed to the obvious reason of them being breaking and entering vandals.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Daedalus sounds a lot like Creator/SamuelLJackson.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Junkyard Dog. At least we presume. In the comics, his real name is Tucker Long.
* SmallNameBigEgo: When Junkyard Dog points out that the reason that the reason their art is rejected may be due to it not being that good, Daedalus tells him to shut up.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Daedalus Boch doesn't kill Junkyard Dog.]]
* ThoseTwoGuys
* TotallyRadical: Daedalus's street lingo.

[[folder: Humpty Dumpty (Humphry Dumpler)]]
-->Voiced by: Matt L. Jones

A former bank accountant under the employ of Tobias Whale. He was set to testify against him, but an attempt on his life by Tobias unhinged him, causing him to drop out of the Witness Protection Program and go into hiding. Years later, he returned to take revenge on Tobias and Jim Gordon.
* {{Acrofatic}}: Humpty is surprisingly fast for his size, having escaped Batman three times in his debut episode. Twice while carrying someone. And his second episode had him capture Batman, Katana, Mayor Grange, Commissioner Gordon, and Tobias Whale without them knowing.
* ActuallyADoombot[=/=]RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Uses one to distract Batman and retreat.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Though he's still a sympathetic AntiVillain, he's ''far'' more dangerous and vindictive as opposed to his comic book counterpart, who preferred to avoid any conflict and be left alone.
* AffablyEvil: After his plans fall apart and he's forced to retreat, he expresses seemingly genuine remorse for his actions and even deactivates the bomb suits. Batman sums him up best.
-->'''Batman''': Humpty may be broken, but he's not pure evil.
** FauxAffablyEvil: Becomes this in his second appearance as his politeness is slightly less sincere than before and his sociopathic traits are more prominent.
* AntiVillain: His motivation is understandable, but his methods are just plain wrong. Unfortunately, by his second appearance, he's devolved into a complete villain.
* AxCrazy: An attempt on his life when he was a witness in a case really [[{{Pun}} scrambled]] his mind.
* BaldOfEvil
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: His debut appearance portrayed him as an AntiVillain who though extreme in his methods, displayed genuine remorse for his actions and even released his captives in a show of good sportmanship. His second appearance downplays his sympathetic traits in favor of playing up his more sociopathic traits and sadism.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Had to have this to be able to escape Batman while carrying Tobias Whale, who is every bit as big as he is.
* DisproportionateRetribution:
** While Tobias Whale and Icepick Joe are {{Asshole Victim}}s, Jim Gordon's completely innocent and was merely trying to help him.
** He arranges a sadistic game in "Games" to punish Batman, Katana, Jim Gordon, Mayor Grange, and Tobias Whale for sending an innocent man to jail for smuggling weapons. Of the five, all but Tobias Whale are guilty only of negligence in either prosecuting the man or having some involvement in the events that lead to his arrest, while Whale used him as a patsy.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: In "Games", he ''genuinely'' believed he was doing Ernie Croskey a favor when he kidnapped Batman, Katana, Jim Gordon, Mayor Grange, and Tobias Whale to punish them for sending him to jail for a crime he didn't commit and is annoyed when Ernie refuses to kill them like he wanted.
* EvilGenius: He's good with numbers, and is quite the GadgeteerGenius.
* EvilLaugh: For an AntiVillain, he's very good at them, to say the least, given how downright ''creepy'' they sound.
* {{Expy}}: His second episode "Games" cements him as one for The Riddler, with not a small hint of [[Franchise/{{Saw}} Jigsaw]].
* FatBastard: Though he's not much of a bastard...
* GadgeteerGenius: Had to be to build those robots.
* GeniusBruiser: Subverted. Humpty is a skilled [[TheChessmaster chessmaster]], an equally skilled GadgeteerGenius, and is quite strong physically, but he's not a very effective fighter. Which is why he prefers to keep his distance and [[KnowWhenToFoldEm retreats if things don't go his way.]]
* GigglingVillain: When he kidnaps Gordon. It's downright ''disturbing''.
* GracefulLoser: After Batman defeats him and escapes, he deactivates the bomb suits that he trapped people inside.
-->'''Batman''': He lost the battle and he's walking away honorably.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In "Games", Humpty lands on his tiled floors when he tries to attack Batman, causing the tiles to give way and letting him fall.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He tries to punish Batman, Katana, Jim Gordon, Mayor Grange, and Tobias Whale in "Games" for sending an innocent man to jail, most of whom had barely anything to do with it, seeing him as a kindred spirit whose life was ruined by them. Batman points out that Humpty himself was also complicit, having known the truth of the affair but kept quiet because he was working for Whale at the time. Humpty responds by trying to blow them all up with a cannon.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: You can't really feel sorry for some of his victims like Tobias and Icepick Joe.
* KnightOfCerebus: Not at a personal level like Deathstroke or a city-wide level like Ra's Al Ghul, but being one of the few non-League of Assassins villains with no comedic traits makes episodes involving him more serious than normal. With the episode "Games" making him more terrifying than before.
* KnightTemplar: Sees himself as this in "Games" wanting to help a man who was committed for a crime he didn't commit.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Knows full well to retreat if the odds are against him.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A 18th century patriotic song-esque one. It sounds like a demented version of Rule Britannia.
* MoodSwinger: As a demonstration of his broken psyche, Humpty Dumpty zig-zags between tearful remorse and psychotic joy when confronted by Batman.
* MoralMyopia: In "Games" he thought he was helping Ernie by kidnapping those responsible for sending him to jail for a crime that he didn't commit and placing them in his deathtraps, never mind the fact that he also kidnapped Ernie against his will and tried to get him to commit murder. Also, see NeverMyFault below.
* NeverMyFault: He's angry at Gordon and Whale for "dragging him into their war", but he was already involved. He was Whale's accountant and fully admits to knowing about Whale's criminal activities, but somehow believed that he wasn't at fault in any way.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Zigzagged in "Games". He was going for this trope with Ernie, but his methods involved kidnapping, deathtraps, mind games and convincing Ernie to kill five ''mostly'' innocent people as the fix. But at the end of "Games" Tobias Whale is arrested for framing Ernie via a confession with Jim Gordon right in the room; while helping solve Humpty's murder mystery set up.
* OhCrap: When he realizes he's just landed on his tiles as they give way and let him fall.
* PsychopathicManchild: A dark variation. The attempt on his life has left him basically as a big, superintelligent child in a grown man's body who loves to play games with people. Too bad his "games" are downright sadistic.
* {{Revenge}}: His primary motivation.
** RevengeByProxy: Subverted. It looks like he's about to kidnap Barbara in an attempt at this, but he uses her as a distraction to knock Jim out and kidnap him.
* RhymesOnADime: Uses this to describe his plans (fittingly, since he takes his name from a famous rhyme). He drops this trait in his second appearance.
* {{Sadist}}: The episode "Games" all but cements him as one. He's gone from trapping people in explosive metal suits to placing them in Jigsaw-esque deathtraps. Hell, it could be argued that his motive in the episode was just an excuse for him to kill Batman and the others.
* SelfMadeOrphan: His grandmother is mentioned to be deceased from suspicious circumstances. In the comics, she was abusive, so he took her apart to "fix" her.
* SlasherSmile: His default expression and he's ''disturbingly'' effective at these, as the picture would attest to.
* TheSociopath: His second appearance turns him into one. His desire for revenge has so twisted his mind that he can't feel any empathy towards others.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: A huge, egg-shaped man named Humphry Dumpler? Kids have probably been teasing him with that name since grade school.
* TragicVillain: A kind-hearted naive man thrust into a war that wasn't his and subsequently driven insane by it.
* TheUnfought: So far, he's the first villain that Batman hasn't engaged in hand-to-hand combat in the series. Subverted in his second appearance, where he tries to fight Batman only to be easily defeated. He's then captured and sent to Blackgate.
* VillainousBreakdown: Whenever Batman foils his plans.
* VocalDissonance: The dude is an adult, but his voice sounds like that of a five-year old's. If anything, it makes him even ''creepier''.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: It's very difficult not to feel some degree of sympathy for him. Especially when his plans fall apart. He sounds so sad and unwell and even expresses seemingly genuine remorse for his actions. He clearly needs psychiatric help.
* WorthyOpponent: He calls Batman "The most fun he's had in years." In fact, in his second appearance, while he gives everyone else cards to help them solve the clues in his game, he gives Batman a blank card because he knows Batman will solve the mystery without help.
* WouldntHurtAChild: During his attack on Gordon's home, it looks like he's about to kidnap Barbara as a RevengeByProxy, but he merely knocks Jim out and takes him, leaving her unharmed.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: He was disturbed by Batman [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown aggressively beating down]] Killer Croc.
* EvilAlbino: He's an African American with albinism who happens to be a mob boss.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Not surprising, considering that his voice actor had previously voiced [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold Darkseid]].
* FatBastard
* FauxAffablyEvil: He acts very cordial when Batman comes to question him, but not before unleashing his guards on him in the same cordial tone.
* GigglingVillain: He has a very distinct, dismissive-sounding chuckle that he frequently makes when addressing his enemies. Combined with his wide, toothy grin, one almost expects the next word out of his mouth to be, "[[{{Troll}} Problem?]]".
* GoldTooth
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Considering that he's the reason for Humpty Dumpty's StartOfDarkness and subsequent descent into villainy, he pretty much deserves Humpty's wrath.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A jazzy guitar tune.
* MrExposition: Fulfills this role in "Animals" as he provides information to Batman on Blackgate, Killer Croc, and Matatoa.
* PragmaticVillain: [[spoiler:He doesn't try to capture Batman with the other villains. Instead, he waits for Batman to take them out, offers to work with him, then turns on him at the last moment.]]
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: He's traditionally a ComicBook/BlackLightning villain.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Leaves Batman and Gordon to Humpty Dumpty after Batman saves him. He tries it again in "Games", but that was slightly less well thought out.

* TheDragon: To Tobias Whale.
** DragonInChief: He's loyal to his boss, but is clearly more dangerous than him.

* MeaningfulName: Milo ''Match''.
* PlayingWithFire: He has fire powers.
* PowerEchoes: His voice gains a distinct echo when he activates his powers.
* {{Pyromaniac}}
* SmugSnake: It's hard to come across as an effective planner when your every step gets mocked by a teenage girl. Though in his defense, he's smart enough not to give into her taunts and make himself look even worse.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: His last name is Match and he has fire powers.
* WouldHitAGirl: He blasts and later punches Magpie in the villain fight to get Batman in "Reckoning."
* WreathedInFlames: Once he starts using his powers.

[[folder:The Ghosts]]

A gang of small-time criminals who used to work in the Cauldron. The Cauldron was an industrial park that became a "no man's land" after it went bankrupt after the Gotham financial crisis. Since the people there have nowhere else to go, they settled in the Cauldron.
* AmbiguousGender: Since every members' face is covered with bandages, it's hard to determine their gender. Barbara lampshades it:
-->'''Match''': Gentlemen, ladies...\\
'''Barbara''': I think they're all guys.
%%* BandagedFace
* BatterUp: Some of them wield baseball bats.
* InTheHood: Most of the members wear hoods while a few of them don't.
* MacheteMayhem: Several of them can be seen wielding machetes.
* MeaningfulName: They're called the "Ghosts" because they were what Gotham was like in the past during the financial crisis. As Alfred stated, they're "the ghosts of Gotham City's past".

[[folder:The Key]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/JBBlanc

A human lockpick, able to pick any lock or hack any electronic device.

%%* BaldOfEvil
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Disturbed by [[spoiler:Batman's beatdown of Killer Croc]] in "Animal"
* LivingMacGuffin: In "Animal". He stole a code that could access any database online and kept it in his head, making him a target for Batman and Killer Croc.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Can throw keys with extreme accuracy.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: He only appears twice and doesn't take too much screentime. However, his second appearance reveals [[spoiler: that he was hired by Deathstroke to create the fake identity of Dane Lisslow, which allowed Slade to proceed with his elaborate revenge plan that drives the plot of the second story arc.]]
* {{Technopath}}: His hands can transform to interface with computers.

[[folder: The Penguin Man (Oswald Cobblepot)]]
-->Voiced by: N/A

A notorious criminal that is pursued by Harvey Dent's Special Crimes Unit. He has yet to encounter Batman or Katana.
* AnimalMotifs: His body shape and clothing makes him look like a penguin. To the point where Harvey Dent questions whether he is a penguin or just looks like one.
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins
* FatBastard
* FreezeFrameBonus: His sketch can only be clearly seen if the scene is paused right before Dent stands up with a gun in his hands.
* TheGhost: His police sketch is seen in "Animal" and is mentioned by Dent, a news report and newspaper headline. However, he never appears in the series.
* SinisterSchnoz: His beak-like nose that makes him resemble a penguin.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Averted, as one of the news reports outs Oswald as the Penguin Man.
* WickedCultured: His sketch has him wearing his fancy suit, top hat, and monocle.

[[folder: Killer Croc]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/WadeWilliams

A giant hybrid of a crocodile and a human, Killer Croc rules over the prisoners of Blackgate. Not much is known about Killer Croc, but he is very street smart and a completely brutal combatant.
* AchillesHeel: Croc's hide is extremely tough, but it only covers his extremities: back, forearms, etc. His stomach, underarms and face are all much softer and thus vulnerable to attack.
* AffablyEvil: Is almost polite to Batman, but still forces Batman to fight him.
* BondVillainStupidity: Zigzagged in "Choices". On one hand, he could have easily killed both Batman and Katana instead of leaving them to get hit by a train while trapped in concrete. On the other, rather than just leaving them there and assuming it would work, he hung around and tried to actively derail any attempt at rescuing them. If Batman didn't have both Oracle and Alfred looking out for him, it would have worked.
* GeniusBruiser: Compared to [[DumbMuscle how he usually is portrayed]], this incarnation of Croc is notably smarter and more cunning; when Batman first met him, he was ruling the criminal community in Blackgate, and was able to take over the whole prison in a matter of hours. In his second appearance, he tricks Batman and Katana into chasing him, then leads them straight into a concrete trap in the middle of some subway tracks.
* Expy: Technically, of himself from ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' cartoon. Who was also an Expy of Leatherhead from the original WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 cartoon.
* FangsAreEvil
* FromNobodyToNightmare: According to Tobias Whale, Croc started out as a nobody who slowly crawled his way into power to become Blackgate's resident capo.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Half crocodile, half human obviously.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Killer Croc traps Batman and Katana in concrete in the middle of subway tracks and leaves them to be run over by a train. [[spoiler:Batman defeats him by pushing him into the path of an oncoming train, knocking him out.]]
* ImAHumanitarian: Threatens to eat Barbara once he catches her, and does not appear to be joking. Also claims Batman "tastes like chicken" after biting him.
* MightyGlacier: Not as fast as Batman, but his tough hide lets him tank attacks until he can grab his opponent.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile
* NotSoDifferent: A small moment, but it's there.
-->'''Batman:''' I'm going to enjoy hurting you.\\
'''Croc:''' See? You're fitting in already.
* RaginCajun: Not as big on the "ragin'" part, however.
* WickedCultured: He introduces himself in a very polite manner and is seen carving out wood figures with his sharp claws.

[[folder: Matatoa]]
-->Voiced by: Michael-Leon Wooley

A psychotic Blackgate Penitentiary inmate that is recruited by Killer Croc to fight Batman.
* AdaptationalVillainy: While Matatoa in the comics was still a villain, he only absorbed the souls of his enemies to remain immortal. In here, he has no magic ability and allegedly cuts off the hearts of others and devours them.
* AdaptationalWimp: He's known as "The Undefeated Warrior" in the comics, while in here, he's a slightly tougher mook and a warm-up foe before Killer Croc.
* AxCrazy: Definitely insane and uses a pair of large blades.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Unlike Pyg, he is darker and more violent than in the comics, at least according to Tobias Whale's exposition.
* DemotedToExtra: While a very obscure villain, he had his own story arc. In this show, he is mostly a glorified mook.
* DreadlockWarrior
* ImAHumanitarian: According to Whale, he eats the hearts of his victims since he believes it will make him immortal.
* LickingTheBlade: He doesn't actually lick it, but he makes a gesture with his blade and his tongue that evokes it.
* ManiacTongue: He shows it off to taunt Batman before their fight.
* MeaningfulName: His name means "fearless" in Maori. Fittingly enough, he shows no fear as he charges at Batman before being beaten.
* TattooedCrook: He has Maori tribal tattoos.

[[folder: Deathstroke [[spoiler: (Slade Wilson/Dane Lisslow)]]]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/RobinAtkinDownes

An internationally renowned assassin and mercenary, hired by Anarky and Harvey Dent to defeat Batman. However, there's more to him that it seems.

* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: [[spoiler:He used to be Alfred's protege.]]
* ArcVillain: [[spoiler: Of the last five episodes, though he was active under the alias of Dane Lisslow for as early as the midway point of the season.]]
* TheChessmaster: His plan to eliminate Batman was in the works long before his debut episode.
* CombatPragmatist: Not quite on Batman's level in combat, but he makes up for it by using guns and bombs to level the playing field.
* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: Unlike Ra's Al Ghul, who has an organization and a goal to conquer Gotham, Deathstroke is a solo mercenary with his own, personal goals. [[spoiler:He's also more tied to Bruce and Alfred instead of Tatsu, essentially targeting Batman because he's jealous of him for having Alfred's favor]].
* CurbStompBattle: Singles out Katana, then puts her on the receiving end of a GameBreakingInjury.
* DrivenByEnvy: Part of his motivation for why [[spoiler:he's trying to kill Batman and Alfred, seeing the latter as having replaced him with the former.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Batman. [[spoiler:His upbringing is quite similar, having been trained by Alfred as a protege and successor, but the reason Alfred chose Bruce over Slade is because, while both are abrasive, Slade [[LackOfEmpathy doesn't have any empathy]].]]
* EvilIsNotAToy: Harvey Dent learns too late that when Deathstroke is hired to do a job, he ''does'' that job, no matter what it takes.
* {{Expy}}: Of himself, in a way. More specifically, the [[MagnificentBastard incredibly cunning]] WesternAnimation/TeenTitans version of him.
** Also of Bane from the original ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' story arc. They're both powerful fighters and brilliant tacticians presented as [[EvilCounterpart evil equals]] of Batman, [[spoiler: and they both outwit Batman and infiltrate his Batcave.]]
* EyeScream: [[spoiler: During the battle in the Batcave, Deathstroke accidentally shoots a C4 pack which leaves him with an injury that pretty much has his right eye blown off and room for his iconic eyepatch to show up.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: He may not be a city-wide threat like Ra's al Ghul, but as a personal nemesis to Batman, he now stands second to none. [[spoiler:He destroys Batman's reputation, forces Bruce Wayne to fake his death after a public assassination, utterly desecrates Wayne manor, steals the Batmobile, takes over the Batcave, and causes Harvey Dent's transformation into Two-Face.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: He doesn't care whose lives get gunned down during his jobs, so long as it gets him closer to his goals. [[spoiler:It's also the reason Alfred disowned him as his apprentice.]]
* MadBomber: Pretty stoic himself, but very liberal with the use of explosives.
* MaskOfSanity: While in disguise as [[spoiler: Dale Lisslow]], he manages to come off as a BadassNormal professional who befriends Bruce Wayne, hold down a steady job in an important position, and present himself as a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, especially compared to his boss [[HairTriggerTemper Harvey Dent]]. It is all an act, and he is truly a murderous madman hell bent on irrational revenge.
* MasterOfDisguise: He isn't restricted to just one mask.
* NeverMyFault: [[spoiler:Blames Alfred for ruining his life, ignoring the fact that his own brutality and recklessness while working for the CIA did that for him.]]
* NothingPersonal: He uses a bomb to pretty badly injure Katana, but insists it's nothing personal since he needs her out of the way for later.
* ObviouslyEvil: What possessed Harvey Dent to hire a mercenary who calls himself [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deathstroke]] and pass him off as a hero is beyond anyone's comprehension.
* PsychoForHire: He takes Harvey Dent hostage to lure Batman into a confrontation, despite Harvey being the one employing him.
* RevengeByProxy: He orchestrates an elaborate plan to destroy Batmans reputation and kill him by way of "killing" Bruce Wayne, but his actual target is [[spoiler: Alfred, who got him fired from the CIA for being too violent, then accidentally got a bounty put on his head by asking the wrong people too many questions about him. From his point of view, Alfred ruined his life twice over, so he's going to do the same back to him by killing his other "son" Bruce.]]
* SadisticChoice: Tries to force Batman into either killing him or letting Dent die. When Batman foils this by saving Dent without killing him, Deathstroke drops himself to his apparent death just to spite Batman.
* SignificantAnagram: [[spoiler: Dale Lisslow]] is an anagram of Slade Wilson, as Batman later realises.


[[folder: Lieutenant/Commissioner James Gordon]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/KurtwoodSmith

A lieutenant at the Gotham police department. Unlike most incarnations, he starts off as very anti-Batman, believing that he's a lawbreaker just like the villains he fights. However, he isn't unreasonable and is willing to work with Batman in a pinch. After being credited with ending Gotham's black out and the police commissioner being killed, Gordon is promoted to commissioner.

%%* BadassInDistress: In "Broken".

* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: He's a good cop and works with Batman if he has to, but he considers him a threat to the city and expresses a strong desire to put him in prison.

The daughter of Jim Gordon, who wants to meet Batman. After her computer hacking skills save Gotham City from the black out, she helps Batman and Katana directly and takes the codename "Oracle".

* BrokenPedestal: In "Toxic", Batman views and treats her as Rex's lover who expresses her concerns for him, however, [[spoiler: in "Monsters", any sympathy and pity Batman had for her is diminished as he now views her with disdain as just another CorruptCorporateExecutive upon discovering her criminal plan.

* MoralityChain: Apparently, Rex Mason was this for Sapphire, however, [[spoiler:after Rex's suicide attempt at the end of "Toxic" and Sapphire thinking he's dead, even though he's really not, nothing stopped her from becoming the next CorruptCorporateExecutive in "Monsters".]]
* RichBitch: [[spoiler: Her SmugSnake attitude and despicable actions against Old Gotham in "Monsters" would qualify her to be this.]]
* SecretRelationship: Averted; she and Rex kept their relationship a secret; but her father knew about it from watching the security footage.
* SmugSnake: Towards Batman in [[spoiler:"Monsters" once he discovers her plan.]]
* StartOfDarkness: [[spoiler: In "Monsters".]]
* SuddenSequelHeelSyndrome: [[spoiler: In "Monsters, without any explanation, she is downright villainous in contrast to her debut appearance in the show.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler: In "Monsters", when she starts becoming like her father.]]
* UnknownRival: [[spoiler: For Metamorpho as of "Monsters".]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: [[spoiler: It seems, as she still runs Stagg Industries after undergoing KarmaHoudini at the end of "Monsters."]]

[[folder: Mayor Marion Grange]]
-->Voiced by Creator/CCHPounder

The mayor of Gotham City.

* BlackBossLady
* EarlyBirdCameo: Mentioned in a news ticker in "Attraction" and a voiceless cameo in "Darkness" before being formally introduced in "Nexus".
* {{Expy}}: Of Amanda Waller. They even share voice actors. Her character model is nearly identical to the one used in ''Justice League''.
* HeroicBSOD: The events of "Games" are a bit much for her, so she takes a leave of absence. [[spoiler: This eventually led her to resign from being mayor in "Hero".]]
* IronLady: Still maintains her authoritative tone after an attempt on her life.
** Subverted in "Games", where she is the one that panics the most in Humpty's "game", [[spoiler: to the point of ditching Batman, Katana, and Gordon to their deaths, then ultimately resigning in "Hero".]]
* RaceLift: From a Caucasian woman in the comics to an African-American one.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She's against Harvey Dent's obsessive witch hunt on Batman and only funds his Special Crime Unit to "give him a higher rope to hang himself from", knowing that if she doesn't, Gotham would likely choose him as the next mayor instead of re-electing her, and it would only give Dent even more power to put on his witch hunt.

[[folder: Harvey Dent]]
[[caption-width-right:320:Harvey Dent]]
-->Voiced by Creator/ChristopherMcDonald

The new, overzealous District Attorney after the black-out six months ago. Harvey Dent wants to solve Gotham City's "cape and mask crisis" through his Special Crimes Unit, and targets Batman and Katana as part of the problem.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Surprising, considering the character fated to be Two-Face, but most versions of Harvey portray him as a generally-good character with a dark side and/or split personality he keeps suppressed until the incident that causes him to completely transform into Two-Face. This Harvey, however, is a full-on {{Jerkass}} from the first second he's introduced -- belligerent, self-absorbed, power-hungry, and glory-seeking.
* AmbiguouslyBrown
* BandagedFace: [[spoiler:After being caught in an explosion and hospitalized.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: With Anarky and [[spoiler: Deathstroke]] for the second half of the season. His methods of bringing down Batman make him just as much a threat to the caped crusader as the villains.
* DealWithTheDevil: Offered one by Anarky, and eventually takes him up on it in "Hero". It doesn't exactly work in his favor.
* EarlyBirdCameo: His name is shown in the news ticker in "Attraction".
* EvilCounterpart: To Jim Gordon. Both antagonize Batman early on for breaking the law. Though Gordon has a genuine respect of the law and eventually becomes one of Batman's most valued allies, Dent only hounds him for political reasons, developing a genuine hatred of him and becoming a deranged villain in the process.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: He is seen walking in a profile during a news interview in "Monsters", which results in one side of his face being hidden most of the time, hinting at his eventual scarring.
* FromBadToWorse: Unlike usual media adaptations where Harvey's transformation into Two-Face is a FaceHeelTurn like in the comics, due to the AdaptationalVillainy makeover this incarnation of the Harvey Dent persona is given, it can be considered this.
* GoodIsNotNice: Though "good" is arguably pushing it.
* HeroAntagonist: Takes this role from Gordon.
* {{Hypocrite}}: For someone so willing to discredit Batman and other costumed freaks as well as say he helps enforce the laws, being willing to team up with Anarky is a little eyebrow-raising. Batman calls him on it in "Hero".
* {{Jerkass}}: Compared to other portrayals.
* InspectorJavert: He's thoroughly convinced Batman is the bad guy, to the point that he refuses to believe Batman isn't responsible for basically every act of vigilantism he comes across.
* ItsAllAboutMe: In particular, during [[spoiler: Bruce Wayne's "funeral"]] in "Epitaph", where he spins the event around him and is worried over being targeted by the fake Batman, instead of the other people also being attacked.
* LawfulStupid: Tries to have Batman shot by a SWAT team while he is trying to de-activate several bombs, arguing that a bomb-squad should do it instead.
* NeverMyFault: Dent never holds himself responsible for his political career tanking due to his obsessive witch hunt of Batman [[spoiler: and he becomes too consumed with revenge as Two-Face to remember that his own recklessness got him caught in the explosion in the first place.]]
* RoyalWe: He averted this in "Twist" but begins talking this way in "Alone" after he believes Batman has died. It's a sign of his Two-Face personality emerging.
* SanitySlippage: Happens to him throughout "Twist" and "Alone" after the incident.
* SlaveToPR: The only reason he allows Gordon's troops to break up the prison riot in "Animal" is due to how he'd look in front of the press.
** In "Doppleganger", he confesses [[spoiler: he hunts down Batman to sell his image as having no tolerance towards costumed freaks. He doesn't care what happens to him or any vigilante if he becomes the new mayor.]]
* ThatManIsDead: Declares himself "a new man" after being caught in the incident in "Epitaph".
* TranquilFury: He pursues his enemies with this after he is "changed" by the explosion. Contrasts his hot-tempered personality as Harvey.
* TwoFaced: Heavily implied to have gained his iconic appearance in "Epitaph", where he's caught in a massive explosion and taken away by the SCU, face conspicuously hidden from view.
* UngratefulBastard: Still hounds Batman and Katana after they save him from Anarky's bombs.
* TheUnreveal: Thanks to the shows untimely cancellation, his actual Two Face appearance is never seen under the bandages.

[[folder: Dane Lisslow]]
[[quoteright:325:[[labelnote:Click here to see his other identity (spoiler)]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beware_deathstroke_7182.jpg[[/labelnote]]]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/RobinAtkinDownes

Harvey's second-in-command in the Special Crimes Unit. He and Wayne become fast friends through their appreciation of martial arts. [[spoiler: For more info, see Deathstroke]].

* BadassNormal: Bruce praises him as being nearly as skilled as himself.
* TheDragon: Harvey Dent's.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In "Monsters" and "Animal", before being formally introduced in "Doppelganger".
* {{Expy}}: Looks a little like [[WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest Race Bannon]], doesn't he?
* FalseFlagOperation: [[spoiler:He dresses as Batman to ruin Batman's reputation, starting with the assassination of Bruce Wayne.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:In his Batman disguise, his belt clearly doesn't match Batmans own. So whose belt does it look like? Deathstroke's.]]
* IHaveYourWife: [[spoiler:Deathstroke kidnaps his son to force his cooperation, but Barbara later discovers that Dane Lisslow is a forged identity]].
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:He straps a bandolier of grenades to himself and tries to blow Batman up. He ends up only taking out himself... maybe.]]
* SignificantDoubleCasting: [[spoiler: The reason he and Deathstroke share a voice actor is because he ''is'' Deathstroke.]]
* SignificantAnagram: Dane Lisslow is an anagram for [[spoiler:Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke]].
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: While he's initially presented as Harvey Dent's right-hand man, this is revealed to be a forged identity. His name is a SignificantAnagram for Slade Wilson... AKA '''Deathstroke'''.]]

[[folder: Man-Bat (Kirk Langstrom)]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/RobinAtkinDownes

Formerly Dr. Kirk Langstrom, his research was perverted by Professor Pyg to create an army of animal hybrids, with himself as the first victim.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Most incarnations of Man-Bat are either a MadScientist or a TragicMonster with no control over his bat form. This one was turned against his will, fight Batman only in his first appearance due to being BrainwashedAndCrazy (courtesy of Professor Pyg and Mr Toad), and is otherwise a very nice guy who has no trouble controlling his bat form.
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler: He is summoned in "Alone" to assist in the final battle against Deathstroke.]]
* BatOutOfHell: Per the name.
* MindControlDevice: Pyg and Toad control him through a time-release injector containing a serum which makes him obey the first voice he hears.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: Subverted. Unlike many incarnations, he doesn't experiment on himself willingly. Pyg and Toad alter his serum and then force him at gun point to inject himself with it.
* SuperSerum: How he became Man-Bat

* SendInTheClones: He is used as the template for an army of inorganic clones with all his abilities.
* SlaveMooks: The Manhunter clones are controlled through a chip in their neck.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Twenty years of cyrogenic suspension have left him looking as young as the day he disappeared.
