The characters of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'':

[[folder:Main Characters]]
!!Batman II (Terry [=McGinnis=])
->''Voiced by Creator/WillFriedle''

An otherwise OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent who recently put his {{Delinquent|s}} days behind him, Terry's life changes when he gets on the bad side of the Jokerz, a gang that idolizes the long-past Clown Prince of Crime. He leads them out of the city (and away from his girlfriend); the chase happens to end at the gates of stately Wayne Manor, where Bruce shows the Jokerz the hard way that he can still handle punks like them...[[PostVictoryCollapse then collapses of a heart attack]]. After helping Bruce back into his home, Terry (in what has become a habit by now) stumbles upon the Batcave and is promptly thrown out.

Terry returns home to find his father murdered, apparently in retaliation by the Jokerz. However, his father's boss Derek Powers, the man who now runs Bruce Wayne's company, shows up asking about a disk his father apparently had before his death, and not in a nice way. Realizing that the Jokerz were ''not'' his father's killer(s), Terry heads back to Wayne Manor to try to convince Bruce to help. When Bruce refuses to get directly involved, Terry steals the last Batsuit and takes off to settle things on his own. After foiling a plot by Powers to sell a devastating chemical weapon to rogue nations, Terry is accepted by Bruce to carry the mantle of Batman.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: His batarangs are as sharp as the plot demands.
* AdventureRebuff: Bruce refuses to help Terry at first. Once Terry steals the batsuit, Bruce shuts it down remotely, but eventually decides to let him become the next Batman.
* AlmightyJanitor: He is, after all, officially (and ''de facto'') Bruce's errand boy.
* AnimalMotif: The Bat.
* AntiHeroSubstitute: While he has most of the heroic qualities of the original, the series' premise of a hot-headed [[TheSnarkKnight Snark Knight]] and former juvenile delinquent stepping into Bruce's place after the latter's retirement is in line with this trope.
* AsleepInClass: Terry is shown to fall asleep in class due to the pressures of balancing his normal life with the responsibilities of being Batman.
* TheAtoner: Terry had an argument with his father and left the house in a huff the night his father died, leaving him to wonder if things would have been different if he'd stayed home that night.
* AttackReflector: Did it to one of Blight's radiation blasts once, but it didn't work out too well for either of them.
* {{Badass}}: Someone that thinks they can wear Batman's cowl has to be one of these, or they won't last long.
* BadassInDistress: Briefly at two points in the series. Once in "Disappearing Inque," when Inque captures him alive instead of killing him in order to lure Bruce into a trap. The second time is unrelated to his double life as Batman: Big Time decides that he wants someone he knows to watch his back now that he's been established in the criminal underground, so he has Terry kidnapped and brought to him.
* BadassNormal: Before stealing the suit, and whenever he's not wearing it.
* {{Badbutt}}: This being the {{DCAU}}, this trope is pushed to its limit.
* BashBrothers: With Bruce in "Out of the Past."
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Does this against Talia [[spoiler:or rather Ra's]]. Possibly justified by the [[PoweredArmor Batsuit]], but then again, the sword's strikes were tearing through it like nothing ''and'' it was against a rather nasty leap attack. For bonus points, having grabbed the blade, he then slams it into some ExplosiveInstrumentation.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: His Batsuit is technically a museum piece in the Batcave, though he said, "This suit may be old, but it's still cutting-edge." He uses other artifacts from Bruce's crimefighting days in the series as well. (e.g. Nightwing's domino mask for ID obfuscation when the Batsuit was unavailable, along with some old-style Batarangs.)
* BringIt: When he defeats every grunt but one, he decides to smile and beckon him with a finger. He gets the mess knocked out of him with a gun a few seconds later.
* BrokenPedestal: One of the few people who thinks Fries really did become a changed man, and was clearly distraught when Victor returned to his old ways.
* BroughtDownToNormal: "Lost Soul" had a computer virus infect his Batsuit, forcing him to go it with just a utility belt and {{Nightwing}}'s domino mask rather than {{flight}}, {{invisibility}}, SuperStrength, etc. Turns out he picked up a few of the bat-skills from Bruce after all.
* CassandraTruth: "Sneak Peek" has a {{Jerkass}} reporter who can pass through walls managing to get video of Bruce Wayne working with his protege, Neo Gotham's new Batman, Terry [=McGinnis=]. When Terry sees their pixelated faces on the news and his family excitedly gathering around the TV to find out just ''who'' Batman is, he feels that it would be better if they hear it from him rather than some gossip news reporter who got lucky. They ''laugh in his face''.
* ChangingOfTheGuard: He's the new Batman. Bruce now acts as TheObiWan.
* CharacterDevelopment: Terry begins the series as a cocky but slippery superhero who tends to overuse cheesy lines. As the show progresses, he finds his physical and mental abilities growing to the point where he can fight crime at several points without Bruce's help, in addition to developing a darker, more [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan sense of humor]].
* CheapCostume: In "Lost Soul," he has to fight his suit, now controlled by a malevolent AI. His costume? Nightwing's mask.
* ChocolateBaby: His and his brother's black hair makes it somewhat unlikely that their biological father could be the auburn Warren [=McGinnis=], given their mother's red hair. Fans attribute the [=McGinnis=] parents' divorce to this, in part. [[spoiler:The JusticeLeagueUnlimited episode "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]" explains this: Warren unknowingly had his reproductive DNA replaced by Cadmus with that of Bruce Wayne's in order to create a replacement Batman.]]
* [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman Clothes Make The Batman]]: Which Terry expresses concern over in the episode "Lost Soul." By the end, he proves that he's Batman even without the suit.
* CombatPragmatist: While Bruce makes a point to have Terry instructed in martial arts like he was, Terry has no qualms about fighting as dirty as he needs to to win. [[spoiler:Something the Joker never anticipated.]] He also likes to [[YouFightLikeACow taunt and mock his opponents into making mistakes]]. [[spoiler: Again, something the Joker never anticipated.]]
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In spades, starting with their backgrounds. Bruce was born into one of the richest families in Gotham, while Terry's the son of a struggling middle class couple. Bruce fights crime because when he was young he was a victim of it; Terry fights crime because when he was younger, he was a criminal.
* CoolLoser: Averted, [[OverprotectiveDad Dana's father]] notwithstanding. Terry has a reasonable social circle once they get past his former record. The only real problem is how he has [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld too much to do]].
* CreateYourOwnVillain: A two-way combination of the trope and its inverse. Derek Powers ordered Warren [=McGinnis=] killed, which led to Terry stealing the Batsuit and going after him. During the confrontation, Terry exposed Powers to nerve gas, which could only be treated by intense radiation. The result was Blight. Upon learning this, though, Terry has no regrets.
-->'''Terry''': You mean, ''I'' made him that?\\
'''Bruce''': You may have. In part.\\
'''Terry''': Good. *{{beat}}* Hey, this guy had my father ''murdered'' and all he's done since is hide from the law! Well, no more hiding for Mister Derek Powers. Now everyone can see him for what he is...even in the dark.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DatingCatwoman: His relationship with Ten/Melanie. Also, in the comic mini-series, he does get his very own Catwoman but she'd rather invoke this with the closer to her own age Dick Grayson.
* DeadpanSnarker: Terry's much more chatty than Bruce. [[spoiler:In fact, he's so wily with his words that he makes ''The Joker'' himself succumb to a VillainousBreakdown.]]
* DecoyGetaway: Gives his jacket to a homeless man as he leaves the subway, in order to distract Stalker.
* [[{{Delinquents}} Delinquent]]: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. The writers made sure to establish his character arc before giving too much information on Terry's delinquent past, to keep it from taking over his characterization and make him more sympathetic.
** {{Foreshadowed}} from the opening episode, though. [[spoiler:The tight restrictions Terry's father places on him, his style of combat and his tendency to taunt others and recognize their fighting style.]]
%%* DeliveryGuyInfiltration: "Shriek"
* TheDeterminator: Has endured beatdowns just as bad as, if not worse, than his mentor. He once jumped up to become Batman with four cracked ribs.
--> '''Terry''': I'll breathe on the weekend.
* DominoMask: When he had to fight against his own Batsuit, he decided to put on the domino mask from Nightwing's display case to disguise himself. The old Batsuits had a few tears and rips in them.
* DramaticUnmask: "Unmasked" had him pull off his mask during a rescue attempt in order to convince a kid named Miguel that it was okay to trust him. Bruce is understandably livid, explaining that because: a) Miguel knows what Terry looks like and b) he said he saw Batman's face when he was interviewed afterwards, every villain in the city will be after him for that information. It gets subverted when, subjected to a mental probe, Miguel has already replaced Terry's face with the face of his favorite cartoon hero.
* EvilLaugh: [[spoiler: To The Joker of all people.]]
* FriendToAllChildren: More subdued than Bruce, but when Terry was put to the task of finding an abducted young girl, he was very motivated indeed--probably because of Matt, who had been kidnapped early on in the series.
** He also makes sure to keep an eye on a young boy [[spoiler:who had seen him unmasked]] However, it was shown that Terry isn't as adept at dealing with children. He was scary to children as Batman, something Bruce was not.
* GenreSavvy: He goes out of his way to keep a closer eye on the city than usual if Bruce is out of town. At first because he doesn't want to disappoint Bruce, but later because he ''knows'' that if Bruce is gone, something is ''bound'' to happen.
* GoodIsNotSoft: While he's much nicer than his mentor, he makes up for it by being much less ready to rescue villains from their own fate.
%%* HotBlooded
%%* HurtingHero
* IcyBlueEyes: Of the piercing variety, though they're usually covered by the mask when he's at work. [[spoiler:Also a hint as to his biological relationship with Bruce.]]
* ILetGwenStacyDie: His father's death was Terry's big motivation for super-heroics.
* InTheBlood: A heroic version that is about as contrived as one can possibly believe.[[labelnote:*]]Cadmus leader Amanda Waller believed that Batman was the keystone in the war on crime in Gotham City and that he would always be needed. Collecting genetic samples that Bruce Wayne left around the city due to the various scrapes and bumps he takes in his line of work, Amanda picked out a target couple to inject these samples into, Warren and Mary [=McGinnis=], overwriting Warren's reproductive DNA with Bruce Wayne's. Terry is then born as the biological offspring of Bruce Wayne. In order to bring this full circle, she attempts to have Terry's parents murdered to invoke the same feelings in Terry but the assassin doesn't go through with it. The project was thought to be over and done with until Terry's father is murdered...at which point he stumbles on the Batcave and dons the Batsuit...thus becoming Batman.[[/labelnote]]
* LegacyCharacter: [[spoiler:Invoked by Amanda Waller, who felt the world would always need a Batman. Terry is the end product.]]
* MrFanservice: He's a younger, initially cocky, TroubledButCute ''Batman''.
* NeverLiveItDown: [[{{In-Universe}} He's often reminded of his delinquent record]].
* OfficialCouple: With Dana.
* OnlyFriend: He sort-of becomes this to [[spoiler:Mr. Freeze]]. When he tries to convince him to escape the collapsing complex, [[spoiler:Freeze]] simply replies with: "Leave me. You're the only one who cares."
%%* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent
* ParttimeHero: He does resent the loss of his free time to fighting villains, and there's considerable friction between him and Bruce, who treats normal life as just a cover for crime-fighting, since he [[BecomingTheMask became the mask]] long ago and never took it off despite never physically putting it on for 40 years.
* PrettyBoy: One thing that immediately stood out to fans was ''just how pretty he was''! Even amongst Batmen who are ''supposed'' to be {{Chick Magnet}}s.
** Many years after the main events of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' in [[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue "Epilogue"]], he's shown to have developed a HeroicBuild and become a {{hunk}} like Bruce before him.
* PoweredArmor: Terry's Batsuit incorporates cybernetics.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red to Bruce's Blue.
* StayFrosty: Terry tells Chelsea, who is being brainwashed and tortured at a "tough love ranch," to "stay [[FutureSlang schway]]" until he can save her.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: His mentor is [[DeadpanSnarker Bruce Wayne]], after all. Taken UpToEleven in ''ROTJ'', where [[spoiler:taunting and snarking at the Joker actually helps him defeat him]].
* ThouShaltNotKill: Terry takes a somewhat more loose approach to this than Bruce did. He won't personally kill, but he won't go out of his way to save criminals, either. He indirectly killed one person in the pilot alone, and it would have been two if Powers didn't have good doctors.
** He very frequently ends up killing one-shot villains, mostly because the fights are set up in such a way that he has no choice but to.
** He tried his best to save Freeze, but Victor [[DeathSeeker wouldn't have it]].
* TookALevelInBadass: To the point that [[spoiler:Terry was able to finish the Joker once and for all, something Bruce never accomplished]].
%%* TripleShifter
* TroubledButCute: Seems to be in the first couple of episodes before he opens up and reveals that he's actually a responsible, altruistic young man. He was a straight example in his BackStory, which included a stint in juvie.
* {{Tykebomb}}: [[spoiler:His genetics are half Bruce's due to Amanda Waller trying to create a second Batman. His parents were also almost killed by an older [[WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm Phantasm]] hired by Waller to create another Batman. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Phantasm decided against killing his parents]], but his dad got killed by Derek Powers, prompting Terry to become Batman anyways.]]
%%* UnwantedHarem
%%* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld
* WeakButSkilled: The Batsuit might enhance his strength compared to a normal human, but considering the sort of opponents he tends to go toe-to-toe with, he still is usually outmatched in terms of sheer physical force.
* WeaponizedExhaust: In one episode, he didn't use his jet boots directly as a weapon, but he did use them to propel a crate at someone.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Terry wanted to please both Warren [=McGinnis=] and Bruce Wayne.
* WouldHitAGirl: Almost all the time he meets female supervillains, he will. Except for in WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker; when he fights the Dee Dee Twins, though he may just have been having fun making them knock each other out as his grin seems to imply.
* YouFightLikeACow: This [[BreakThemByTalking serves him well]] in his fight against [[spoiler:The Joker]].
* YouKilledMyFather: Said to Blight/[[spoiler:Derek Powers]] word for word. Also his origin story (as it is true for the original Batman).

!!Bruce Wayne
->''Voiced by Creator/KevinConroy''

The original Batman from earlier in the {{DCAU}}, Bruce is originally reluctant to let Terry take up the mantle of the Bat, but he eventually gives in and becomes Terry's mentor and MissionControl.

[[Characters/BatmanAndBatFamily See here for info dealing with him in the rest of the DCAU]].

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Subverted. Terry thinks Bruce is being unnecessarily close-minded because he does not believe the rumors of a ghost haunting Terry's high school. It turns out that Bruce ''has'' seen similar paranormal activity, but the reports sound too amateurish and "high-school" to fit into that paradigm. In the end, it turns out to be [[PsychicPowers something completely different]].
* BackInTheSaddle: He's long-since retired from being Batman due to old age and a crippling heart condition. He now mentors and acts as the VoiceWithAnInternetConnection to the new Batman. However, on two occasions, he's taken up the fight again. On the first, he did it with the aid of PoweredArmor. On the second, he was returned to a younger age through the use of a [[AppliedPhlebotinum Lazarus Pit]]. Both times, his [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome heroic theme]] from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' plays for him.
* {{Badass}}: He's the original Batman, so it's to be expected.
* BadassBaritone: Especially now that he's older.
* BadassGrandpa: [[spoiler:At least if Terry's future with Dana is cemented in "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]," he ''will be''.]]
%%* BadassNormal
* BadDreams: Done without seeing the actual dream, when Payback calls himself Bruce's worst nightmare and Bruce just retorts "You have no idea what my nightmares are like."
* BashBrothers: With Terry in "Out of the Past."
* BatmanGrabsAGun: It took this happening to make Bruce stop being Batman, proving (to Bruce) that he couldn't continue crime-fighting if he had to stoop to their level.
* BeatItByCompulsion: Teaches Terry this.
* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: In "Blackout," Bruce took Mr. Freeze's freeze gun out of his [[SuperheroTrophyShelf little crime museum]] to stop Inque, and wore the old Gray Ghost hat and mask to keep his identity hidden. In her second appearance, Terry tried the same, but she broke it; later, Bruce took a huge PoweredArmor suit out of retirement to go hand-to-hand with her.
* CareerEndingInjury: His heart condition, which prompts the incident above.
* CaneFu: It's unclear as to whether Bruce really needs the cane, or if he's just pretending to be more handicapped than he is for the sake of having a weapon.
* ConspicuousTrenchcoat: Uses this to hide his [[PoweredArmor BatMech]] while rescuing Terry.
* CoolOldGuy: Despite being a bit cranky.
* CorneredRattlesnake: In the first episode, Bruce's Batman is too old to fight against the goons. One of them is about to beat Batman with a pipe, forcing Batman to use a gun to win. Batman, who hates guns, decides he needs to retire in his old age so he wouldn't be in this situation again.
* CrazyPrepared: Naturally.
-->'''Terry''': She's heading for the stairs!\\
''(Bruce presses button, metal door seals shut, preventing Inque from heading into the mansion.)''\\
'''Inque''': Someone's got a secret. ''(tries to sliver in through the cracks in the metal door)''\\
'''Terry''': She's getting through!\\
''(Bruce presses another button which electrocutes Inque from the door)''\\
'''Terry''': Wow, you really are prepared.\\
''(Inque slivers up to the ceiling and starts to burrow herself up in the rocks)''\\
'''Bruce''': She won't get through that way either, [[UpToEleven there's several feet of solid steel]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Has his moments.
* DentedIron: His deteriorating general health, compounded with all the injuries he'd sustained over the years, is what ultimately forces him into his MomentOfWeakness at the very start of the show.
* TheDeterminator: Will a heart attack stop him from saving someone? Nope. But the moral crisis suffered after being forced to pick up a gun will.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Throughout the DCAU, he has had many love interests. He doesn't end up with any of them and ends up a single, old man. [[spoiler: Although it's hinted later in the comics that if Wonder Woman hadn't chosen to stay with Justice Lord Batman she would've stayed with him.]]
-->'''Bruce Wayne:''' When I was young, [[ChickMagnet women used to throw themselves at my feet all the time]].\\
'''Terry [=McGinnis=]:''' What did you do?\\
'''Bruce Wayne:''' [[CelibateHero Step over them]].\\
'''Terry [=McGinnis=]:''' Smooth.\\
'''Bruce Wayne:''' I thought so.
* DoesntLikeGuns: The series begins with a heart attack forcing him to scare a criminal off with one, horrifying him into retirement.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Played with when he started HearingVoices as a result of Shriek. He later tells Terry that the reason he knew he wasn't going crazy was because the voice kept called him "Bruce," which is not what [[SecretIdentityIdentity he calls himself]] in his head.
* DoubleConsciousness: He states that, inside his head, he doesn't call himself "Bruce" anymore.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Starts out the series living alone with his dog after all his friends died, retired from being Batman and living on what he has left of his conquered company. Gets to train a new Batman, reconciles with the Bat Family and retakes his company. [[spoiler:And if "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]" is anything to go by, he might just live long enough to see his grandkids.]]
* GameBreakingInjury: His heart condition.
* GenreSavvy: During "Betrayal," after Terry's been kidnapped and dropped the Batsuit, Bruce calmly tells Max to relax and that he'll be there before hanging up. A minute later, after she's picked up the mask, he calls back and warns her not to even try it.
* GoodCopBadCop: In the crossover with ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', when Old Bruce takes over questioning Ghoul from his younger self, he plays the bad cop so effectively that everyone is unnerved when the younger Batman steps in to play good cop.
--> ''Old Bruce:'' "I can't believe I was ''ever'' that green…'''THIS''' is how you ''interrogate someone.''"\\
-->''Moment of black and Ghoul is telling all''
-->''Batman:'' "I can't hold him back forever. You might want to start talking."\\
-->''Static:'' "Batman [[CueTheFlyingPigs playing good cop?]]"\\
-->''Green Lantern'': "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Everything's relative.]]"
** The scene is made even funnier when you realize that Creator/PhilLaMarr [[TalkingToHimself voices both Static and Green Lantern]].
* GoodIsNotNice: He can be a tough old bastard giving Terry the hard facts and truth.
* GrumpyOldMan: Several times.
* HandicappedBadass: His heart condition is the handicap.
* HeroesLoveDogs: Understandable, since Ace is his only companion at Wayne Manor other than Terry.
%%* IcyBlueEyes
* ImpoverishedPatrician: It was never explored in the show, but DVD commentaries and behind-the-scene features reveal that Bruce Wayne has lost almost all of the vast Wayne Fortune in the intervening years between the original series and the current story. He survives on the returns from his stock holdings in Wayne-Powers, which he ''could'' sell for a massive profit, but he would never do so because he would lose any last remaining influence over the company.
* LonelyAtTheTop: The rare heroic example of this trope at the beginning of the show. He is one of the richest men in the world and it is due to his crusade as the Dark Knight that Gotham is still standing. However, he has also completely alienated everyone around him and is utterly alone. And once he got older, his failing body conditions prevented him from further activities as Batman, which has made him bitter. Finding his successor in Terry did improve the situation but it is clear that Bruce sometimes thinks about what could have been.
-->'''Terry''': Why do you hate him so much?\\
'''Barbara Gordon''': No, I don't hate him. I hate what he's become. Such a great man...so alone.
%%* TheMentor
%%* MissionControl
%%* MomentOfWeakness: See DoesntLikeGuns.
* NeverForgottenSkill: Bruce has retired from being Batman and has spent years being a bitter old recluse. However, he has proven to be quite proficient with his cane, not just for attacking, but for casually blocking thrown knives with it. Then there's that one episode where he goes into a Lazarus Pit and being made younger causes him to fight with all the skills of his younger self unforgotten. Occasionally, we see him throw a Batarang with all his old pinpoint accuracy.
* OffhandBackhand: Backcane, rather than backhand, but he's old.
* OffscreenTeleportation: In "Sneak Peek," Terry does an extended chase scene following Ian Peek down floor after blockaded floor as fast as he can. The instant he falls through the final floor (right after Terry arrived), an elderly Bruce appears...although he was left hundreds if not thousands of feet away in no rush to chase after them.
* OldMaster: He regularly chides Terry for not listening to him, often when Terry falls into the same sorts of traps as he did in his cape-wearing days.
* OlderAndWiser: And way, way scarier than before. As in, the time travel episode of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' has him unsettling ''himself'' and a 50 year old [[WesternAnimation/StaticShock Static]].
* ParentalSubstitute: He functions as this to Terry [=McGinnis=] [[spoiler:until the reveal that he is Terry's ''real'' father because of a crazy governmental genetics program.]]
* PlayingGertrude: Creator/KevinConroy voices Bruce in both the original series and ''Beyond'', and manages to make the aging between both series very believable.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: He gives a good one to Ra's Al Ghul in "Out of the Past":
-->'''Bruce:''' Sure, Ra's, why not? Anything to hold off the Grim Reaper another few seconds. I take it back. You don't ''cheat'' death; you whimper in fear of it.\\
'''Ra's:''' Silence! *slaps Bruce*\\
'''Bruce:''' [[DeadpanSnarker And you hit like a girl]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to Terry's Red.
* RetiredBadass: In the few times he goes back to action.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: After hanging up the cowl, Bruce appears to have taken advantage of this instead of the playboy facade he used in his prime.
* SecretIdentityIdentity: It's shown at the end of season 1's "Shriek" that he has it all figured out.
-->'''Bruce''': The voice kept calling me "Bruce." In my mind, that's not what I call myself.
* SeenItAll: He has faced demons, wizards, gods, {{Darkseid}}, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and ghosts. However, he has doubts about a ghost haunting a girl's locker room as it seems just too juvenile.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Took one between BatmanTheAnimatedSeries and BatmanBeyond, becoming more cynical and anti-social. He's gotten even worse in the [[Comicbook/BatmanBeyond comic series continuation]], having treated Terry, Dick, and Barbara as pawns.
* WeakButSkilled: Considering that he's older and more physically frail.
* WelcomeToMyWorld: Invokes the trope after hiring Terry to be his assistant. Terry's mother thinks it's welcoming Terry to the world of big business and all that Bruce Wayne represents. Terry and Bruce (and the viewer) both know it holds more meaning than that.
* WhenEldersAttack: Fits this trope occasionally. Given that this is Batman as a senior citizen, he is much more effective than average.

!!Maxine "Max" Gibson
->''Voiced by Creator/CreeSummer''

* ActionGirl: Gets in on the action quite a few times. She saves Terry's life twice in the show's run.
* AffirmativeActionGirl: Deliberately added to the show to try to up the show's female viewership.
* DamselOutOfDistress:
** She is ''not'' go willingly when the Kobra organization kidnaps her and tries to make her their new queen.
** When she is cornered by a gang of Jokerz, Batman intervenes and tells her to run. She interprets this as running to ''tackle one of the thugs.''
* BareYourMidRiff: In one episode.
* BlackAndNerdy: She has ''quite'' the advanced computer programming skills.
* BlackBestFriend: To Terry.
%%* BoyishShortHair
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome[=/=]WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Despite being one of the major characters of the series, she does not appear or get mentioned in either [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker the movie]] or the "Epilogue" episode from ''Justice League Unlimited.''
* DarkSkinnedRedHead: Her hair is dyed pink.
* GamerChick: She's featured in a lot of the video game-based eps and in one episode, she gains a StalkerWithACrush when she beats him at an action/adventure game.
* GirlFriday: This is what Terry would ''like'' her to be, but she's a little too ActionGirl to be content with it.
* LovableNerd: A very sexy one.
* MissionControl: Occasionally when Bruce is out of town.
* MostCommonSuperpower: She's noticeably stacked, especially for a 17-year-old high school student.
* TheNotLoveInterest: Mostly because she's the only person Terry's age who knows his SecretIdentity.
* OneOfTheBoys: In a DVD extra, the creators admitted that they considered Max, although already a pretty blatant {{Tomboy}}, this.
%%* PaintedOnPants
%%* PluckyGirl
* RecklessSidekick: Not an official sidekick, but fills this role on occasion for Terry's Batman. Used most egregiously in "Final Cut," where her recklessness almost gets her killed by Curare.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:She once created a computer program to find out Batman's identity. After a little Jokerz-related mix-up, she realizes that it must be Terry.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: For Terry/Dana.
%%* SpotlightStealingSquad
* TeenGenius: She's at the very top of her class and casually breezes through examinations of all sorts without trying and is a very good hacker.
** The follow-up comics have her using her hacking skills against '''Brainiac'''
%%* {{Tomboy}}
* TomboyishName: Her real name is "Maxine," but she prefers "Max."
* TwoferTokenMinority: Black and a girl.

!!Dana Tan
->''Voiced by Creator/LaurenTom''

* BettyAndVeronica: The Betty to Ten's Veronica for Terry's Archie because she's his childhood friend and Ten is a villain.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: With Terry.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler: Her brother was going to kill all of his family, she told him to kill her first.]]
* DamselOutOfDistress: Dana manages to defend herself pretty well when push comes to shove (such as in "Rats" and a bit in TheMovie), but she ultimately must get rescued by Terry/Batman even when not distressed.
* DemotedToExtra: In the second and third seasons, with the introduction of [[SpotlightStealingSquad Max]]. Went from being Terry's main "normal person" confidante and having a scene in almost every episode to mostly being a background presence who got tossed a few lines every now and then, except for the one episode where she got to be a DamselInDistress. Notably, she was (and remained) the {{Official|Couple}} ''{{Love Interest|s}}.''
* DesignatedLoveInterest: She was Terry's girlfriend from before the series started and is continuously Terry's girlfriend for the run of the series. However, the audience doesn't really get to see much onscreen romance between the two due to the series' focus on superhero action and Dana's lack of screen time. Most of the time, their romance is shown either by being arm-in-arm when together, or when Terry has to break a date. In the later episodes, Dana is DemotedToExtra as Max fills her role of a normal person that Terry talks to.
* FirstGirlWins: Despite a couple of flings with [[DatingCatwoman Melanie/Ten]], a few [[GirlOfTheWeek Girls Of The Week]] and a JustFriends relationship with his SecretKeeper/Sidekick Wannabe Max, the FullyAbsorbedFinale confirmed that Terry seals the deal with Dana, his first girlfriend, who he's implied to have dated since they were [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend fourteen]].
** [[spoiler:Although they've broken up in the 2.0 comics.]]
*** [[spoiler: And then they get back together once she figures out who he is and becomes his SecretKeeper.]]
* LoveInterest: Her main role in the show.
* MissingMom: We've seen her OverprotectiveDad, but no mention of her mom. She appears in the comics though.
%%* MsFanservice
* NeutralFemale: Averted. She keeps away from the action most of the time, but when it comes to her, she fights back.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Girl]]: Possibly the nicest character in the series. The only people she's ''not'' pleasant to are the show's JerkJock, her one-time StalkerWithACrush and her boyfriend when she's been StoodUp one too many times.
* TheObstructiveLoveInterest: Edges into this in Season 2. She [[CharacterRerailment gets better in Season 3]].
* OfficialCouple: With Terry.
* OverprotectiveDad: Dana's father ''really'' doesn't like Terry because of his [[{{Delinquents}} delinquent]] past.
* NoSympathy: Averts this. While she does get understandably irritated at Terry's frequent disappearances, she rarely gets mad at him personally. In "Golem," she's shown to share Terry's strong sense of compassion by offering to drive Willie Watt home, even though it would likely cut her date with Terry short.
* SecretKeeper: [[spoiler:Eventually becomes this, as revealed in "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]."]]
** It is revealed how when Terry shouts for her to get down when [[spoiler: The Joker King i.e. her brother attempted to kill her.]]
* SatelliteLoveInterest: She starts out with [[SpoiledSweet a character]] beyond Satellite Love Interest, as she was the most well-rounded of Terry's high school classmates in the first season, but as her [[OutOfFocus screentime]] [[DemotedToExtra shrinks]] in later seasons, her characterization dwindles to just being TheObstructiveLoveInterest.
* SilkHidingSteel: A nice girl in a nice dress, who doesn't take well to being kidnapped.
* SpoiledSweet: The most affluent main character (after Bruce) and pretty nice.
* StoodUp: Constantly by Terry. Type 3.
* Stroge: Admits to herself that while [[her brother became the Joker King, destroyed Gotham and killing hundreds in the process and then trying to kill his entire family including her]] she still loves him.
* UptownGirl: Her [[OverProtectiveDad father]] is less than happy about her relationship with Terry, although it has less to do with their socioeconomic differences than Terry's criminal record.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: Well, it's implied that Terry and Dana have been dating since they were at least 14, since she knows who "Big Time" is, so...
** [[spoiler:By the time in "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]," she wishes to be with Terry despite his worries that she might get hurt. Terry plans to propose to her, and she likely accepted.]]
* WomanInWhite: Her white dress in "Rats."

->''Voiced by Creator/FrankWelker''

* AdaptationalBadass: Ace the Bathound, given a new treatment and role as Bruce Wayne's guard dog. He even got a flashback origin story in one episode.
* AngryGuardDog: Was actually raised for [[BeastlyBloodsports dog-fighting]] and rescued by Bruce.
* BerserkButton: Don't mess with either Bruce or Terry.
* CanineCompanion: Whenever he goes along with Terry, he's like a heroic version of RightHandAttackDog.
%%* CoolPet

* LoyalAnimalCompanion: To the point where ''[[ProperlyParanoid Bruce]]'' never put a tracer on Ace because it was never needed.
* MythologyGag: To TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Ace the Bat-Hound.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted with the Royal Flush Gang member of the same name. [[spoiler:Retroactively, he was [[LegacyCharacter named after]] ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague another]]'' [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Royal Flush Gang's Ace]].]]
* RightHandAttackDog: A heroic example.

* AmicablyDivorced: Though the [[JusticeLeagueUnlimited JLU]] episode "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]" reveals that [[spoiler:Bruce is the boys' biological father]], opening up the possibility that [[spoiler:suspicions of infidelity on Mary's part]] may have been a factor, since [[spoiler:Terry and Matt's black hair is genetically improbable, given his brown hair and Mary's red hair]][[labelnote:*]]In point of fact, Amanda Waller had a procedure done on him without his knowledge that essentially replaced his sperm with Bruce's, so that his kids would be biologically Batman's kids, providing potential replacement Batmen for the future.

* AmicablyDivorced: Though the {{J|usticeLeagueUnlimited}}LU episode "[[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E13Epilogue Epilogue]]" reveals that [[spoiler:Bruce is the boys' biological father]], opening up the possibility that Warren [[spoiler:suspected Mary of infidelity]] since [[spoiler:Terry and Matt's black hair is genetically improbable, given his brown hair and Mary's red hair]][[labelnote:*]]To be clear, she did not actually cheat on him, improbable as it might seem.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Although understandably he is very young, and some of his antics could be seen as a coping mechanism for losing his father at a young age.
** A good example of this is one episode where, even being told that the ghost at Hill High is being destructive, he wants to have a séance. The reason? He's scared he'll forget what his father was like and wants to contact him.
%%* BrattyHalfPint
* ChocolateBaby: As with Terry, his and his brother's black hair makes it somewhat unlikely that their biological father could be the auburn Warren [=McGinnis=], given their mother's red hair. Fans attribute the [=McGinnis=] parents' divorce to this, in part.
* DemotedToExtra: Had less and less screentime as the series continued.

[[folder:Recurring/Major characters]]
!!Barbara Gordon
->''Voiced by Stockard Channing (Seasons 1 and 2) and Angie Harmon (Season 3 and ''Return of the Joker'')''

The former Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}, she has put aside her cowl and has now taken her father's place as Gotham's Police Commissioner.

[[Characters/BatmanAndBatFamily See here for info dealing with her in the rest of the DCAU]].

* ActionGirl: She still has it.
* BadassNormal: Still a pretty normal human. Doesn't stop her from kicking ass as a cop or being able to throw a mean Batarang.
* CoolOldLady: She's now commissioner and still kicks ass. While she is not a fan of the idea of a new Batman running around and hindering her operations, she warms up to him after he saves her husband.
* TheCommissionerGordon: Like father, like daughter. [[spoiler:Except that her relationship with Batman was generally far worse. It got better over time.]]
* CrazyPrepared: She's taken the lessons of her old mentor to heart, turning the Gotham police into a genuine force to be reckoned with.
* HappilyMarried: To Sam.
* IAmNotMyFather: Barbara felt no need to continue her father's policies towards the Bat in the beginning, and she minces no words about it. Her apparent rancor over it is probably more due to soured feelings toward Bruce rather than her feelings towards her father, since they were always shown to be close.
* InspectorJavert: She was quick to believe the worst about Batman at first, though to her credit, she wises up when it's not his fault. And to be fair, in at least one case she witnesses him kill Mad Stan (it was an illusion, but the guy put a lot of work into it). Spellbinder (the illusionist himself) was quick to point out, however, how easily and quickly Barbara fell for it.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Tends to be a badass.
%%* OlderAndWiser
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* SecretKeeper: She knows Bruce's secret, and Terry's. She's also one of the few people who knows about [[spoiler:the circumstances surrounding the Joker's death]], but chooses to keep quiet about it.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Her appearance here showed that DCAU Barbara didn't suffer the same fate mainline DCU Barbara did. Although a few hints are dropped in the comics that she might not have gotten away quite as unscathed as she appears.
* WomanScorned: Her initial frostiness towards Bruce is due to their previous relationship having ended ''badly''.

!!Sam Young
->''Voiced by Paul Winfield''

Gotham City's District Attorney and Barbara Gordon's husband.

%%* BaldBlackLeaderGuy
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Not for real, [[LampshadeHanging but at the rate the villains keep targeting him]]...
* DistressedDude: He is frequently the target of assassinations and other attacks, usually requiring Batman and/or Barbara herself to rescue him.
* HappilyMarried: To Barbara.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: A better example than his wife. He utterly refuses to discuss the police's and court's dealings with her after hours, and doesn't seem to have that much of a problem with Batman running around.

!!Howard Groote

%%* ExtravertedNerd
%%* LovableNerd
%%* {{Megane}}
%%* {{Nerd}}
* SelfDeprecation: PaulDini based Howard on his teenage self.

!!Bobbi "Blade" Summer
->''Voiced by Melissa Disney''

* AlphaBitch: She's actually fairly apathetic, but has the look down pat, and is more than content to do things such as throw most of a school assignment on Terry, or manipulate a classmate to make another guy jealous.
* DatingDoSiDo: Seems to have a new boyfriend every episode.
* EmotionlessGirl: She has this vibe normally, but does show emotion on several occasions.
* LovableAlphaBitch: On some occasions. She's very in favor of nerd Howie scoring with a hot girl, as long as that hot girl wasn't herself.

* AnimalEyes: Provides the trope picture from the episode "Splicers," when she is revealed to have literal cat-eyes due to undergoing a trendy but controversial splicer treatment.
%%* BareYourMidriff
* DatingDoSiDo: Has a new boyfriend in every episode.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Dana.
* LovableAlphaBitch: She's actually a rather nice person, as seen in "The Last Resort," and except for being dismissive of [[HollywoodNerd Howard Groote]], doesn't really do anything bad. Though she sometimes tries to get Dana to see other guys, it's because she thinks Terry isn't good for Dana, due to him always brushing her off.
* ParentalIssues: She mainly acts out due to her rough relationship with her father.
* SpecialGuest: When she was voiced by Creator/RachaelLeighCook, though Rachel did enjoy playing the role. [[WordOfGod The production team reportedly felt awful]] about calling her in to record [[TheCameo a single line]] for TheMovie, though she was a good sport about it.

!!Nelson Nash
->''Voiced by Creator/SethGreen''

%%* AlliterativeName
* BullyingADragon: Once he brands someone as an acceptable target, he will continue to hound him even after it's been established that said guy could beat him up. This includes insulting Terry after seeing him take down several Jokerz and continuing to torment Willie Watt after the guy buffed up and gained superpowers.
* ButtMonkey: Not that he doesn't deserve it, though.
* DatingDoSiDo: Implied to be in a relationship with Chelsea one episode, hits on Dana in another and has a messy break-up with Blade in yet another.
* HiddenDepths: "The Eggbaby" revealed that Nelson is surprisingly good as a father, if his grade was anything to go by. Remember, Max did his math homework so he'd raise the kid by himself.
* JerkJock: A massive one. In the pilot alone, he introduces himself by spitting in Terry's face. He also picks on weaker kids.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: In "Golem," he's bullying Willie Watt. When Terry steps up to defend him (Nelson has witnessed Terry kicking the asses of a Jokerz gang), Nelson considers it for a moment and backs down.
* LaserGuidedKarma: There are some times when Nelson's jackass tendencies come back to bite him, especially in "Terry's Friend Dates A Robot," when said robot [[DisproportionateRetribution pushed a row of gym lockers on top of him]]. If Nelson hadn't been wearing his sports gear, he'd have died.
* SpitefulSpit: In the first episode, he spits on Terry's face after the other insults him during a wrestling match. Terry punches him, causing him to get in trouble and get grounded by his father.

!!Tim Drake
->''Voiced by Dean Stockwell''

* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:Don't look now but, disregarding the Joker's ultimately failed backup plan, Kid Robin just ''killed'' [[JokerImmunity the]] [[AvertedTrope Joker]] in the flashback.]]
* BrainwashResidue: Still has after-effects of his last encounter with The Joker (of the "uncontrollable shaking and bad dreams" kind) after 40 years. Given what Joker put him through, that's really not that surprising.
** [[spoiler:How much of it was trauma and how much of it was Joker's mind chip can be debated, though one residue was him hating being Robin, something which went away with the chip]].
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:Will the cute little boy who wants to be a hero end up targeted, tortured, brainwashed and driven insane? ''Yes''.]]
* {{Deprogram}}: It is mentioned offhand that it took well over a year of intense therapy to make him sane again. Judging by some of his reactions, he still isn't entirely over it some 40-50 years later.
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:The Joker did this to him, having implanted a microchip in his neck during his MoralEventHorizon crossing. The chip made the Joker's mind into adult!Tim's sort-of SuperpoweredEvilSide.]]
* KidHero: Used to be one, as the second Robin.
* ShellShockedVeteran: After [[spoiler:what the Joker did to him]]? Can't be blamed. He does become better when [[spoiler:Terry destroys the chip with Joker's mind that was implanted on Tim]].

!!Blight (Derek Powers)
[[caption-width-right:252:[[labelnote:As Blight]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_blight_4288.jpg[[/labelnote]] ]]

->''Voiced by Sherman Howard''

The corrupt CEO and co-owner of Wayne-Powers Enterprises. After being exposed to his own nerve gas, he is treated with high levels of radiation. He glows green in his natural form, so he must wear an artificial skin that only lasts temporarily and must be regularly replaced. The skin wears out more quickly if he gets angry.

* {{Abusive Parent|s}}: He exiled his own son. And he's the reason Paxton is also an asshole. [[spoiler:This comes back to bite him]].
* ArchEnemy: To the new Batman.
* BadassBoast:
** In "Meltdown," as he takes down Mr. Freeze:
--> '''Blight:''' And behold, I shall be a blight upon the land, and everything I touch shall wither and die!
** He makes another one to the protestors in "Ascension"
--> '''Blight:''' You want to talk about POISON?! I AM POISON!
* BigBad: Of Season 1. He played TheManBehindTheMan for most of it, but on occasion, like Mr. Freeze and his worsening condition, forces him to take a more direct approach.
* BigBadWannabe: He views himself as a Machiavellian plotter, but he seems to be nothing more than a smug CorruptCorporateExecutive. He's never seen to succeed in any of his schemes. And it only takes a simple plan by Paxton to expose him as Blight to the public, and he's finished as a major threat to Gotham.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: "YouKilledMyFather" doesn't really narrow it down, Terry. Not that he cares, anyway.
* ClothingDamage: His costume as Blight is his regular clothes without a shirt and torn jacket sleeves and pant legs. It sounds unimpressive, but just look at him without the protective skin he uses.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He has money, schemes and superpowers, and at the end of the day, this is his main game.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: {{Downplayed}} version. First is that he is already a corrupt exec that set himself against Terry by ordering Terry's father killed. Secondly, he's unintentionally exposed to nerve gas which would have killed him had he not gotten a cure (extreme radiation, in this case), and the combination of them mutated him.
* CurbStompBattle: Gives one to Mr. Freeze, of all people.
* DamnYouMuscleMemory: In the pilot, he reflexively shoots a nerve gas canister thrown up in the air before he realized what it was.
* EngineeredPublicConfession: His son Paxton set it up so Derek would lose it in front of the entire board of directors of Wayne-Powers, effectively exposing him as Blight.
* EvilCounterpart: To ''Mr. Freeze'', of all people. In his first appearance as [[WalkingWasteland Blight]], he nearly kills Freeze to solidify himself as Batman's new BigBad. Their [[BodyHorror physical conditions]] also deteriorate to the point that [[Comicbook/BatmanBeyond they depend on a suit to stay alive]].
* EvilMakesYouUgly: The radioactive treatment given to him for the exposure to his own mutagenic nerve gas leaves Derek Powers looking like a pitch-black skeleton surrounded by fluorescent green tissue.
* {{Expy}}: His having radiation-themed powers and a skeletal appearance makes him similar to minor Batman villain Dr. Phosphorus.
* FauxAffablyEvil: His public face is polite and charming, if smug, but he's ruthless and completely unscrupulous when he drops the act.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: During the pilot, he's accidentally gassed by his own nerve gas. The only treatment involves a massive dose of radiation, leading to...
* ILoveNuclearPower: He's heavy with radiation, which vaguely resembles [[KillItWithFire fire powers]] when he uses it, and [[HandBlast can shoot it through his hands]].
* {{Irony}}: His transformation into Blight. He was ''[[CorruptCorporateExecutive already evil]]'' long before his transformation. Afterward, his exterior simply matched what was within.
-->'''Terry''': Now everyone can see him for what he is...even in the dark.
* LightIsNotGood: He emits a bright radioactive green glow. This contrasts with Batman, who is dark and can even turn invisible.
* {{Mutant}}: One of the side effects of the nerve gas he developed (and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard got exposed to]]) was that it was mutagenic and influenced by its environment. It served as the catalyst [[ILoveNuclearPower with its own "cure"]] to turn him to the walking meltdown.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Apparently died in the Season 1 finale. He was never seen again, though the possibility that he was out there, hungry for revenge, hung over his son Paxton. According to [[AllThereInTheManual the comics]], Blight did indeed survive, sort of. His body did survive, but he doesn't seem to remember anything about his past life outside of hatred and a desire for vengeance against Batman and Paxton Powers, and was eventually made into a target for the Stalker, and was [[spoiler:eventually killed by being caught in a blast furnace]].
* OffingTheOffspring: Wanted to do this to Paxton, after he was betrayed by him.
* SmugSnake: Not even trying to hide it.
* TheSociopath: A pretty major case. He essentially regards others as tools to fulfill his motives, only cares about power, regularly manipulates and uses people under a [[FauxAffablyEvil veneer of charm]], and when he learns that he killed Batman's father, he casually replies "Do you have the ''slightest'' idea how [[ButForMeItWasTuesday little that narrows it down]]?"
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Visually an {{Expy}} of minor villain Doctor Phosphorus. Phosphorus even calls himself the "Baron of Blight" in [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2009}} Stephanie Brown's Batgirl series]].
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: His son Paxton is just him with brown hair.
* VillainousBreakdown: His mental state starts deteriorating from ''the pilot episode forward'' as his hope of being cured dwindles...and as he embraces the power of being Blight.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Averted; he has a bad reputation even without his illegal actions.
* WalkingWasteland: After his treatment, his body is glowing with radiation, making him literally toxic to all surrounding life. He eventually embraces it by naming himself "Blight".

->''Voiced by Shannon Kenny''

A woman who is able to transform into liquid after being paid to be a human test subject for a mutagen. She works as a freelance saboteur and is often hired by powerful corporations.

* BodyHorror: In her other shapeshifting form.
* CombatTentacles: One of her main combat tactics.
* DarkActionGirl: She regularly goes toe-to-toe with Batman, and usually wins.
* {{Expy}}: Of Clayface and, hilariously, the [[http://www.nonbox.com/content/BIC.jpg Bic mascot]].
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: She tried to provide for her daughter, Deanna Clay, but her condition and life of crime made her influence at best mediocre. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the feeling's not mutual, which is kind of her fault.]]
* GiveHerANormalLife: The episode "Inqueling" reveals that, before her mutation, Inque gave birth to a daughter she subsequently gave up for adoption. When the two reunite in the show, Inque explains that she had grown up poor and allowed herself to become Inque all for the money, and she wanted to give her daughter an easier life with normal parents and a large trust fund. [[spoiler:When Inque reveals just how much money she has, however, her daughter attempts to kill her in order to get control of her bank accounts. She points out that Inque never gave her anything except money, so why is Inque surprised that she's just taking more of it?]]
* GodzillaThreshold: Bruce has come out of retirement twice to aid Terry in defeating her.
* TheJuggernaut: The only member of Terry's RoguesGallery that he was never able to beat on his own. Most of his victories against her were owed to by the aid of others.
* MeaningfulName: If her daughter is anything to go by, her surname is "Clay." Also, her name is "Inque" and she looks like the mascot of a pen company.
* MorphicResonance: She always has a black coloration with the blank, white eyes (her human form is black all over, with chalky blue skin and normal eyes). Batman {{exploit|ed}}s this when he recognized her, after Inque very nearly loses him by impersonating a member of a group of walruses.
* MuggingTheMonster: In one episode, she attempts to hold off Terry by grabbing what she thinks is an InnocentBystander and holding him hostage. The "victim" turns out to be ''Superman'' in disguise. Cue CurbStompBattle.
%%* NightmareFetishist:
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Her daughter Deanna injected her with a dissolving agent and assumed it killed her. Ever the GenreSavvy crimefighter, Terry knew better. The end of the episode shows that Terry is right to think this, and Inque later appears in a ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode set farther in the future.
* OrificeInvasion: Her last-ditch attempt to kill Terry in her first episode.
* PunchClockVillain: Inque is a corporate saboteur for hire. Unless it's to stay alive, Inque doesn't do anything villainous unless somebody is bankrolling her.
* ShapeShifterBaggage: Possibly averted, but never outright stated. She's implied to be relatively quite heavy for her size (i.e. roughly that of an average sized woman for most of the time), [[FridgeLogic implying she has a dense body]]. The strength she's demonstrated can explain her ease of movement if that's the case.
* ShapeshifterDefaultForm: She has a "human" form that imitates her original human body, though she can only get the shape right, not the color. Her regular form is much more simplistic, humanoid with an oval-shaped head with a single white spot on it for an eye.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Mostly CombatTentacles, but has used blades and giant needles.
* ShutUpKiss: To Batman. An interesting version though, as it there was no [[FoeRomanceSubtext romantic subtext]] or [[DatingCatwoman growing interest]] between the two, but only to keep him from talking.
* SuperpowerMeltdown: She's ''in the midst of one'' throughout the series (see above). Despite this, Inque still manages to be the most physically powerful foe Terry faces.
* SuperStrength: Part of her success as a criminal.
* UnstableGeneticCode: Sorta. She does need a steady diet of mutagens to stay stable and survive, and eventually suffers genetic damage that [[ShapeshifterModeLock briefly doesn't let her return to her human form]].
%%* VoluntaryShapeShifting
* WeaksauceWeakness:
** Her inky liquid form is vulnerable to water. Just some water can dilute her enough so that she can't form a solid shape, but it doesn't permanently kill her either, since she's usually able to eventually pull herself together from being flushed.
** Averted with her other main weaknesses: [[HumanPopsicle being frozen]] and [[ShockAndAwe electrocuted]]. While, yes, both are very effective ways to stop anyone, she's probably the only one in the series whose biology allows for HarmlessFreezing as well as [[AndIMustScream being lucid while frozen solid]]. In a later episode, she demonstrates a technique she learned for breaking out of ice blocks instantly, though Batman starts bringing along electrified equipment at about the same time.
* TheWorfEffect: The sole reason for her appearance in "The Call" was to demonstrate just how easily Superman is able to defeat her.

!!Willie Watt
[[caption-width-right:159:[[HollywoodNerd Before]]]]
[[caption-width-right:281:[[PrisonsAreGymnasiums And after]]]]

->''Voiced by Scott [=McAfee=]''

A bullied nerd at Terry's high school. He steals a giant construction robot from his father and, after an accident, is able to control it with his mind. He uses it to take revenge on his bullies. Though Batman destroys the robot, Willie is left with telekinetic powers.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: In his second appearance, he still wants Blade, but he's taken it to far extreme levels.
* AbusiveParents: Willie's dad is an aggressive macho idiot.
%%* AlliterativeName
* BondCreatures: Willie treated the Golem like this was the case after he discovered he could control it himself.
* CoverBlowingSuperpower: Based on a hunch, Terry throws a glass of water right at Willie's head. Yup, Willy has telekinesis and halts the glass mere inches from his face. And since it was caught on a security camera, Terry doesn't have to worry about blowing his own cover.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Literature/{{Carrie}} Carrie White]], also a DistaffCounterpart. A meek teenager who's always being bullied by classmates, not helped at all by an abusive parent, who develops psychic powers which are let loose at a dance after an incredibly vicious humiliation.
* FreudianExcuse: Willie tried to kill his father and everyone at his high school dance. But only after putting up with his {{Jerkass}} of a father, getting bullied and assaulted by a JerkJock, and pushed off a 30-foot dock into the water by said jerk jock. Then he gains the power to control a giant robot with his mind, and then PsychicPowers, and his main motivation is getting back at everyone who ever wronged him.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was a nobody who was picked on by the {{j|erkJock}}ocks and shunned by all the girls until he was given a visor to control a mini-{{Kaiju}}-sized, remote-controlled robot by his [[WellDoneSonGuy overly-aggressive and never-satisfied father]] to fight back with. Willie then donned the visor and essentially [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity went crazy because he was drunk with power]] and succeeded at getting back at the people who bullied him until Terry/Batman intervened, destroyed the visor and short circuited Willie's brain. Then at the end of the episode with Willie in juvenile, he found out he had gained psychic powers. THEN on a episode in the next season, Willie was released from juvie with a noticeable change in appearance (i.e. buff) and started getting his respect and trying to take [[AlphaBitch Blade]], the girl who had rejected him before. Now he was a jacked-up, psychotic psychic ''Somebody''.
* GeniusBruiser: After a while in juvie with nothing better to do than hit the gym.
* HopelessSuitor: For Blade.
* HumansArePsychicInTheFuture: His telekinesis was treated in an oddly normal manner, although he wasn't born with it.
* TheKidWithTheRemoteControl: Villainous example. He had first the remote control for, and later mental command of, a massive humanoid construction machine known as a Golem. He did not use it wisely.
* LightningCanDoAnything: After he was electrocuted while controlling the Golem, he gained the ability to control it without the [[ElectronicTelepathy control headband]], and was clearly intended to have gained technopathic powers. It's later scrapped in favor of an array of other psychic powers.
* NotMeThisTime: In the tie-in comic, the Golem (or what's left of it) starts attacking people. Terry goes to Willie, who claims that, while it's not him, the Golem did send him the message that it found a new master, so he still might have a connection to it. It ''wasn't him'', either.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: At first, letting loose only against the likes of Nelson Nash and the Jokerz, [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope before being pushed too far at the dance]].
* PrisonsAreGymnasiums: He becomes a lot more buff after he spends his time lifting weights in juvie.
* PsychicPowers: At first, he could [[MachineEmpathy control a robot]], and by the end of the episode, it was revealed he appeared to be developing a greater talent as a {{Technopath}}. Later demonstrates [[PowerFloats levitation]] and [[ExaggeratedTrope ''some serious'']] [[MindOverMatter psychokinesis]].
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Though he ditched them after becoming buff.
* SlasherSmile: He loves making these.
* StalkerWithACrush: On bit character named [[AlphaBitch Blade]] initially.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: A man who can control a giant robot via his mind named "Watt." It's pretty self-explanatory. Even more appropriate when he demonstrates a little technopathy.
** Later, he's developed other psychic powers, and his name is still "Will(ie)."
* TackyTuxedo: Wears an orange version to the spring dance in the episode "Golem." Made worse by the fact that other episodes show that future formal fashions are even more streamlined than those of today, meaning it was really, ''really'' out of date ''and'' it wasn't actually a formal occasion (the only guys are wearing pretty casual clothes).
* {{Technopath}}: At first, he was limited to commanding a robot which he was controlling [[LightningCanDoAnything when he got electrocuted]]. At the end of the episode, he demonstrated full-on technopathy by blowing out a TV with his mind. On his eventual return, the writers had scrapped the technopath angle in favor of full-blown psychic powers.
* TookALevelInBadass: Twice. If he ever gets out of jail, he's going to be one scary member of the RoguesGallery.
* WhosLaughingNow: His ultimate goal is to push everyone around like they used to do with him.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Willie was more than willing to kill his father with his new control over his robot, even with Terry trying to reason, "But he's your father!" Only for Willie to respond, "Not for long."
* YouAreWhatYouHate: Nelson did a pretty good job of humiliating Willie in front of their peers. But when Willie returns, more powerful than ever, he now understands what enjoyment Nelson got bullying people weaker than him (Batman asks him "How are you doing this!?", to which Willie responds "With great satisfaction!" while grinning dementedly.)

!!Mr. Freeze (Victor Fries)
->''Voiced by Creator/MichaelAnsara''

Mr. Freeze is still the severed head in a jar that last appeared in ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]''. Dr. Stephanie Lake creates a clone body for him and transfers his brain patterns into it, hoping to use the same procedure for Derek Powers.

* AndIMustScream: For the last 50 or so years before Dr. Lake intervened, he was a head in a jar, presumably locked in a room where he had very little human contact.
* AntiVillain: Went from villain in name only back to {{Woobie}} villain at the end of his episode.
* TheAtoner: He genuinely did want to try to make up for all the pain he caused. Too bad nothing ever goes his way.
* CreepyMonotone: Averts it after he gets a new body, but when things start to go south, it begins making a comeback.
* {{Badass}}: He was able to freeze a whole house down after killing everyone in it.
* BadassCreed: As always, he has brilliant lines.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Yes, the terrifying, emotionless villain who likes to [[AndIMustScream freeze people solid]] is made even darker because he gets to commit his first ''[[BodyHorror on-screen murder]]'' since [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries his debut]].
** In addition to freezing his traitorous girlfriend to death while she howls in pain (with a GoryDiscretionShot), he also freezes an oncoming car in a block of ice and encases a squad of soldiers shooting at him. This may be the biggest killing spree he's ever gone on in the DCAU.
* DeathSeeker: After crossing the DespairEventHorizon again.
* DespairEventHorizon: Sometime between [[spoiler:his new body regressing back to requiring sub-zero temperatures]] and [[spoiler:Derek Powers' and Dr. Stephanie Lake's betrayal]]. At that point, revenge is the only thing he has left (again).
* DramaticDeadpan: When he's revived, he puts his tragic past behind him and talks with more emotion. When he's betrayed, he still talks more emotionally than he used to, but a few lines are dramatically used in his classic monotone.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:During "Meltdown," Mr. Freeze tries to reform and becomes able to withstand normal temperatures due to Dr. Stephanie Lake. Unfortunately, he reverts back to needing subzero temperatures to survive and is nearly killed by Dr. Lake. Fries becomes Mr. Freeze once more for vengeance and tries to destroy the facility he was recreated at, intending to go with it. At the end of the episode, he gets a cracked helmet, exposing him to temperatures above zero. He stays in a collapsing building which ultimately explodes. Terry tries to help him get out, but Mr. Freeze creates a wall of ice to force Terry to leave him behind to die.]]
* HesBack: One of the only classic Batman Rogues to get this treatment, aside from [[spoiler:The Joker and Ra's al Ghul]].
* AnIcePerson: Apparently it's rooted in his DNA.
* IronicEcho: Uses one towards the scientist who had betrayed him [[spoiler:Dr. Stephanie Lake, who had also becomes his lover]]. It also doubles as a PreMortemOneLiner.
-->'''Mr. Freeze:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ft6mNPeqa6Y There may be some momentary discomfort]].
* MadScientist: Not as heavily emphasized here, although he appears to have made the new suit some time before the events of "Meltdown."
* PetTheDog: Saving a kitty cat from an oncoming train, letting go a man who tried to shoot him in revenge for killing his family decades before, and starting a charity dedicated to helping the victims of his previous actions and naming it after his beloved wife, Victor really wanted to make up for all the horrible things he had done.
* PoweredArmor: Upgraded with the option to emit even more powerful ice blasts from his hands.
* ReformedButRejected: Unlike Bruce, Terry is more accepting of the possibility that Freeze has really reformed.
* TragicVillain: Even more than he already was in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Considering he had lost his wife, and it's decades after ''The New Batman Adventures'', it's hard to not feel sorry for the poor man.
* VillainousRescue: Saves Terry from [[WalkingWasteland Blight]] with an ice blast, though it was mostly due to his own anger than concern for Terry's safety.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: His opening monologue goes along these line. He's well justified in thinking this since by then he's nothing but a head in a jar.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: See TragicVillain for more.
* TheWorfEffect: Mr. Freeze reappears halfway through the episode decked out in a new set of bulletproof PoweredArmor, and displays a more powerful Freeze Gun built into the suit. However, he gets [[CurbStompBattle one-shotted]] by new villain [[WalkingWasteland Blight]] in order to demonstrate the strength of the new BigBad.

!!Shriek (Walter Shreeve)
->''Voiced by Chris Mulkey''

A sound engineer whose focus on researching [[AwesomeButImpractical brilliant but impractical]] inventions nearly drove himself out of business. He was bailed out by Derek Powers, who eventually pressures Shreeve into becoming a hitman. He wears a suit with built-in speakers that fire destructive sound blasts. After losing his hearing because of Batman, Shriek turns to supervillainy in his quest for revenge.

* BigNo: His reaction to losing his hearing.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: His sound suit.
* ConspicuouslySelectivePerception: Variant on ignoring sounds not made by the protagonist: his suit's abilities include nullifying sound in the surrounding area. When Batman turns on the machines in a factory in order to mask his own movements, Shriek uses his suit to block out the sounds, followed by another adjustment so that he can still hear Batman moving around.
* CoolButInefficient: Lampshaded in his debut, where he demonstrates his powerful sound weapon to Derek Powers. Shreeve finds he has a tough job selling his technology when Powers notes that for regular tasks like demolition, conventional tools like dynamite are just as effective and cheaper than some exotic new technology.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Inverted; it's the fact that his inventions weren't cost-effective that led to his supervillain career, even if it took some pushing from Powers to get him there.
* EarthquakeMachine: He later uses a modified version of the same utility to get this effect.
* ElectricInstantGratification: He pays his assistant Ollie by letting him use a "pleasure wand" that directly stimulates the brain's pleasure centers.
* EvilCripple: Was rendered deaf after his first encounter with Batman, which led to him becoming a vengeful recurring foe.
** Actually, based on the ringing sound after his deafening, he was afflicted with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tinnitus tinnitus]], which, depending on how severe it is, is ''worse'' than just mere hearing loss.
* EvilGloating: Just what Bruce needed to attack him by surprise.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was once Walter Shreeve, a phonologist, sound studier and engineer. But when he was told his funding would be cut, Derek Powers offered to let him continue if he would kill Bruce Wayne. After his initial battle against Batman, Shriek lost his hearing and began using his powers to torment the city, including at one time, completely muting all sound in the city.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard:
** The irony. A sound engineer turned deaf by his own invention.
** Another time, his deafness was an advantage in a fight. Too bad he didn't know a building coming down behind him could possibly crush him.
* MakeMeWannaShout: His suit's main offensive utility is sound blasts that can shatter concrete. His fights with Batman can rack up impressive levels of collateral damage.
* MeaningfulRename: In his debut, Terry incidentally exposed him to the police. Knowing that his civilian life was shot, he turned to Powers, who suggested that he rename himself "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Shriek]]," [[LampshadeHanging noting]] that it wasn't a friendly name, but it was better to be feared than loved.
* PunchClockVillain: At first. Then it became personal.
* RevengeBeforeReason: At first, he just wants to secure funds so he can keep doing his research, but as his life is stripped away he [[MotiveDecay degrades]] to this. Summed up in one exchange, after he's exposed as Shriek and goes to see Powers with the intent of killing him:
-->'''Powers:''' That's not going to help.\\
'''Shriek:''' No, but it'll make me feel better.

!!The Royal Flush Gang

* AbusiveParents: King and Queen are clearly more concerned about Ten pulling her weight in the gang above everything else, with King outright berating her and Queen emotionally manipulating her into staying. In their second appearance, [[spoiler:they faked their own kidnapping just to see how far Melanie would go to prove her loyalty]]. To be fair though, Queen at least is willing to speak to Melanie using her real name, and in their third appearance, she's still upset about Melanie leaving for good.
* BadassFamily: Unlike [[JusticeLeagueUnlimited previous incarnations]] (or future incarnations, for the order they were produced), this Royal Flush Gang was related.
%%* BeardOfEvil: King
* BettyAndVeronica: Ten as the Veronica, against Dana as the Betty, for Terry as the Archie.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Melanie, with Terry.
* BlondesAreEvil: Queen. Ten as well before her HeelFaceTurn.
* CaughtInTheRain: Terry and Melanie.
* CompressedHair: Ten has a rather voluminous head of blond hair, but in costume, her head is as smooth as an egg.
* DatingCatwoman: Ten and Batman. Bruce comments on it.
-->[[CallBack Let me tell you about a woman named Selina Kyle]]...
* DeathDealer: They use several thrown implements shaped like playing cards; King even had a high explosive card he had been saving up for Batman.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: King has an inferiority complex pertaining to the previous King, Queen's father, and it's quite clear he's only barely just masking his resentment and inability to properly lead the team by being loud, assertive and domineering.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Jack is sanguine, King is choleric, Ten is melancholic and Queen is phlegmatic.
* GangOfHats: Rather obviously by this point, they and their crimes are themed off of playing cards.
* HeelFaceTurn: Melanie and Jack. Sadly, it didn't last for Jack, as in the series tie-in comics, he tried to revive the Royal Flush Gang with himself as King.
%%* KnifeNut: Jack
* LegacyCharacter: As Bruce notes in their first appearance, the family takes on new members to replace those that retire or go to prison. Ironically, even though the series takes place 50 years in the future, this version of the gang is the first to ever be featured in the DCAU. The first two iterations would appear later on in ''JusticeLeague''.
* MayDecemberRomance: [[spoiler:King has an affair with Sable Thorpe, Paxton Powers's personal assistant.]]
* MilitaryBrat: Played in a weird way with Melanie, whose family travels often as they go from one city to another in their life of crime.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Melanie and Jack.
* NotSoDifferent: This is played with in "King's Ransom."
-->'''[[Creator/GeorgeLazenby King]]:''' I couldn't stand it anymore. The constant comparison. Do you have any idea what it's like living in [[SeanConnery someone's shadow]]?!
-->'''Terry:''' Actually, I can relate.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted with Ace, who shares the name with the Bat-Hound, who was named after a [[LegacyCharacter previous incarnation of Ace]], one seen in ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. Lamphaded by Bruce:
-->'''Bruce:''' What kept you?
-->'''Terry:''' They had an Ace in the hole.
-->'''Bruce:''' Luckily, so did I.
* PlayingCardMotifs: Take a wild guess. Each of them is named after the higher-ranking cards.
* PunchClockVillain: King wants to make Batman pay for breaking up the old Royal Flush Gang, but as Jack points out, they don't have anything to gain from that monetary wise.
* ReformedButRejected: [[spoiler:In ''B.B. 2.0'', Melanie attends the same college and wants to make up with Terry, but he rejects her for her past. They later make up.]]
* SensualSpandex: Melanie as Ten.
* SkySurfing: They use a set of playing-card shaped hoverboards.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: In the tie-in comics, it is revealed that King and Queen each had an identical twin, [[DoubleInLawMarriage who]] also married. Their daughter, Melanie's cousin[[note]]technically, DNA-wise, ''full-blooded sibling'' [[/note]], could be mistaken as her twin.
* VillainousBreakdown: King has one at the end of "King's Ransom," going on a rant about how he's tired of being forced to measure up to his predecessor.
* TheVoiceless: Ace, due to being an android with a blank face.
* WhiteSheep: Melanie's family treated her [[DatingCatwoman relationship with Terry]] as teenage rebellion. When she actually completed her HeelFaceTurn, they disowned her. Then Jack joined her when his parents refused to pay his bail money.
* WickedCultured: How they see themselves.
%%* WomanScorned: [[spoiler:Queen]]
* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler:King has an affair with Sable Thorpe. In an earlier episode, Terry cheats on Dana with Melanie.]]

!!Spellbinder (Dr. Ira Billings)
->''Voiced by Jon Cypher''

* AdaptationalBadass: Spellbinder was based on an obscure SilverAge Batman villain from the comics.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Played with; he does what he does because he feels severely under-compensated for the work he puts in. He already ''does'' put his skills to legitimate use and doesn't find it remotely satisfying.
* {{Expy}}: He resembles the Mad Hatter with his hypnotic technology, with a little of Scarecrow throw in. He was very loosely based on a Silver Age Bat villain of the same name with illusion-based gimmicks.
* FacelessEye: His favorite gizmo.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was at first a bitter and underpaid psychologist at Terry's school. To gain some cash, he used his self-made VR technology to get students to steal for him. After being arrested and escaping, he began making even stronger VR simulators giving runaways and unwanted kids a perfect life for a short time in exchange for stealing, knowing they would overdose in time and didn't care. He also got a city-wide manhunt going against Batman by making people think he killed Mad Stan in cold blood.
* GRatedDrug: Opens a VR arcade, where people can experience their greatest fantasies. However, he deliberately made the effect addictive. As soon as people leave VR, they experience intense withdrawal symptoms. He uses this to get people to steal for him.
%%* MasterOfIllusion
* MindControlDevice: His handheld Evil Eye.
* PsychoPsychologist: He turned out to be the psychiatrist at Hamilton High School, who used his position to hypnotize his young patients into aiding him to steal from their wealthy parents
%%* TheShrink
* SkySurfing: He has his own mechanical device to fly on, although it's more spherical than board-shaped.
%%* SoftSpokenSadist
* ThisIsNotAFloor: Uses an illusion to nearly trick Terry into walking off a cliff. He has also tricked Terry into diving off of a building by projecting a waterfall over it.
* WarriorTherapist: With an emphasis on "therapist" rather than "warrior."
* WhatTheHellAreYou: When Batman meets him for the first time, he's shocked by Spellbinder's unusual appearance (he wears an orange suit that seamlessly covers his body, [[TheBlank even his face]]) and asks, "What the heck are you!?"


* TheBrute: Used to be, but now he's stuck on life support.
* DarkLordOnLifeSupport: He's wholly dependent on life support, his life of Venom abuse having turned him into a shell of the man he once was.
* IWasQuiteALooker: He used to be a well-muscled man even without the Venom, but years of using the stuff has reduced him to a bag of bones.
* PowerDegeneration: His super-steroid Venom causes this. A lifetime of Venom use has left him a comatose and broken man dependent on Venom and hooked up on life support 24-7.

!!Jackson Chapell

* AlmightyJanitor Used his position to make a fortune by selling The Venom to kids at Terry's high school in the form patches worn on the skin. He even lampshades it.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: He realized that a super-strength serum could make him a ton of money, rather than just using it for generic supervillainy. Not legally, but still in the sense that it could be marketed.
* FlatCharacter: He's a drug dealer. Yeah, that's pretty much his only trait.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard Terry defeats Jackson by overdosing him on his own venom patches than cause a small explosion Bane's caretaker ends up a brain dead vegetable.

->''Voiced by Melissa Disney''

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the cartoon's concept art, she has a distinct zombie-like appearance to her face. In the comics, she's a stunner, and no longer bald.
* AssassinOutclassin: Is sent after Commissioner Barbara Gordon's husband, DA Sam Young. When she fails, the society she's a member of starts [[ContractOnTheHitman hunting her down for her failure]]. Thinking proactively, she in turn starts hunting down and eliminating them. [[spoiler: She succeeds, but fails when she attacks her final target on her list: Batman himself, the one she held most responsible.]] (For some odd reason, she didn't include either Young or Gordon, but that may be for the best.)
* AttackReflector: Her sword, which has deflected lasers.
* BaldWomen: The only thing we see under her burka, beside her eyes, is that she has no hair.
* {{Butterface}}: If Terry's reaction to her face is anything to go by.
* CainAndAbel: ''Justice League Beyond 2.0'' reveals that she is [[spoiler:Green Lantern Kai-Ro's sister]].
* ConsummateProfessional: She's considered to be the best assassin in her organization, [[spoiler: which gives her the tools to when she starts eliminating them.]]
* ContractOnTheHitman: At the end of her first episode, she's targeted by the Legion of Assassins for failing to eliminate her target. [[spoiler: She then turns the tables by taking out the entire Legion ''single-handedly'' until only one remains.]]
* DarkActionGirl: ''Natch''.
* TheFaceless: We never see her face in full, though the animation studio actually did produce a drawing that had a distinctive zombie quality to it. [[http://s192.photobucket.com/albums/z183/DCAnimatedUltimecia/Batman%20Beyond/Villains/?action=view¤t=CurareFace.jpg]]
** Batman managed to rip her veil off after a particularly wild tackle. He was so shocked by her face she was able to effortlessly kick him, grab the veil and put it back on immediately. This scene was shot from behind her back, so [[TakeOurWordForIt trust Batman on this one]].
* [[ImplacableMan Implacable Woman]]: She's relentless in her goals, stopping only when failure is the outcome.
* InTheHood: She wears a white veil/burka, although it's clearly only to hide what's underneath, since she's pretty distinct.
* InverseLawOfSharpnessAndAccuracy: Her scimitar, which is [[AbsurdlySharpBlade unreasonably sharp]], and she sure knew how to use it, cutting everything from park benches, steel poles, and reinforced steel doors down! However, not a single actual person felt the steel of her blade.
** She does have a scene where she fights a few dozen cops [[TraintopBattle on top of a train]], a few got thrown off while she was running through them and conspicuously cutting their guns apart. She managed to knock out the ones left, or the producers [[BloodlessCarnage were being discrete]] about her work.
* McNinja: She has a vaguely Arabian getup, implying she may be some variety of [[TheHashashin Hashashin]], and quite similar to the original [[ShoutOut League of Assassins]].
* MeaningfulName: Curaré is also the name for a poisonous plant used by South American native peoples to tip their arrows.
* MurderousThighs: When she [[WithMyHandsTied had her arms tied]], she manages to wrap her legs around Batman, to great effect. Jumping around the scenes as she does, she clearly has a good deal of leg strength.
* ProfessionalKiller: Certainly of the "assassin" variety, she's very good at it too.
* SharpenedToASingleAtom: Her scimitar is sharpened by lasers to a single molecule. [[CleanCut It cuts very well]].
* SinisterScimitar: Her sword was called a scimitar, although it's certainly shaped more like a katana.
* TechnicolorPeople: Pastel blue, to be specific.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: While she throws it like a spear once, she throws it spinning like a frisbee twice, and on one of those occasions, it ''arcs'' back to her.
* TheVoiceless: Though we do hear her grunting when struck, she never speaks.
* WomanInWhite: Very conspicuously, for a professional killer.

!!The Jokerz
* BigBadWannabe: Although they base themselves on the [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Clown Prince of Crime]], they are a far cry from the original villain, as Bruce is quick to point out.
** [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Their inspiration]] also mentions this in [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker the movie]]. He calls them "a disgrace to the name Joker" and spends the rest of the scene scaring the crap out of them.
* ChemistryCanDoAnything: Ghoul is a talented chemist, capable of not only creating substances that can boost metahuman powers, but also improve on Joker Toxin.
* GangBangers: A futuristic version.
* GangOfHats: They all wear clown-themed makeup and outfits of some variation.
* HarmlessVillain: Compared to the rest of the rogues gallery, they are rather unimpressive and rarely serve as the main antagonists of an episode. Terry can often defeat small numbers of them even as a civilian.
* InkSuitActor: Gang leader J-Man, who is voiced by DCAU creator Creator/BruceTimm, is designed as Timm himself cosplaying as the Joker.
* MilesGloriosus: J-Man, who acts tough but is actually fairly weak and possesses very few fighting skills on his own. He is quick to flee and retreat whenever a confrontation doesn't go his way.
* MuggingTheMonster: Among their intended victims are two Batmen, a superhumanly strong robot, a boy controlling a HumongousMecha, and ComicBook/{{Static}}. Since all of these end in the Jokerz running for their lives, it's a wonder they're still trying to mug people.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: In "Joyride", when a group of them manage to steal a military vehicle and wreak havoc around the city.
** Ghoul manages to not only recreate Joker's Toxin, but he makes it stronger than before leading to the death of Vigilante.
* TeensAreMonsters: The Jokerz are all various assorted teenagers, many of whom are juvenile delinquents, although a few such as Terminal also led seemingly wholesome double lives.

!!Dr. Able Cuvier
->''Voiced by Ian Buchanan''

* {{Aesoptinum}}: "Splicing", a new technology that allowed a human to mix their DNA with that of an [[PettingZooPeople animal]], giving them cool features. [[BlatantLies It's safe, we assure you.]] Naturally, it became an allegorical aesop for drug abuse and extreme body modification.
* AndYourLittleDogToo: Terry is fighting a mutated Dr. Cuvier, and Ace, [[CanineCompanion Bruce's pet Great Dane]], is also present. Now, the two have had a turbulent relationship so far, but when Terry gets hit, Ace rushes in to fight off the monster, only for the monster to wrap its tentacles around Ace and tries to do him in. [[BerserkButton And that's when Terry got pissed.]]
-->'''Terry:''' "[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome DON'T. TOUCH. MY. DOG!!]]"
* BadBoss: When berating his henchman for failing to kill DA Sam Young, he grabs Ramrod by the neck and then throws him down one story.
* BodyHorror: After being injected with dozens of different splicing needles.
* BondVillainStupidity: Rather than just killing Batman when he has the chance, instead he decides to "splice" him and ''then'' try to kill him.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Played with. He tries to market his splicing technology to the public, but when the District Attorney threatens to shut his business down, he gets pissed.
%%* EvilBrit
* AGodAmI: Has a pronounced God Complex.
* MeaningfulName: The Chimera Institute.
%%* MixAndMatchCritters
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: They don't say it out loud in the episode or anything, but most viewers assume he's dead by the end of "Splicers"; the comic has him alive later on (and confirms that he was at least ''thought'' dead by most)
* PettingZooPeople:
** He invented the splicing process that turns people into these.
** Also inverted in the comic, where he turned an animal into a human.
* PhlebotinumOverdose: After he goes OneWingedAngel, Terry jabs him with multiple syringes, causing him to mutate uncontrollably into a disturbing asymmetrical monster.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: Used himself as the first test subject.

->''Voiced by Dorian Harewood''.

* AntiVillain: Type IV. A man forced into a life of crime to provide for his family after he was fired from his job at Wayne-Powers.
* AscendedExtra: He was introduced as the newly married husband of [[BlackBestFriend Jared's]] mother in "Spellbound". By his next appearance his character and background is fully-fleshed out, and he's becomes the titular antagonist.
* GeniusBruiser: He used to be in Special Forces, which is how he gave Batman a run for his money, and he's also a weapons designer.
%%* MoreDakka
* OneManArmy: With the amount of weaponry he has, and his fighting skills, he almost certainly counts.
%%* SelfMadeMan
* WalkingArmory: A vengeful weapons developer who took some samples home from work.

!!Dr. Peter Corso
->''Voiced by Ed Begley Jr.

* AntiVillain: Type IV. A perfectly nice old man blackmailed into aiding a gang of crooks.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: He ''has'' cashed his checks: he runs a successful and respected medical clinic where he uses advanced cybernetics to create prosthetic limbs for those injured in accidents. However, he becomes the supplier and mechanic for a gang of criminals [[IHaveYourWife when they kidnap his wife.]] [[spoiler: She isn't really kidnapped she's actually just using both him and the gang to get richs.]]
* IfIWantedYouDead: This reasoning is used by Max when Terry tells her about how he went to talk to Dr. Peter Corso about the cybernetic implants he has been making for a criminal gang (for reasons explained in the IHaveYourWife entry below) and he ambushed him with a sedative before moving his operation elsewhere. Max points out that while Peter ''did'' trick him, he also didn't use a perfect opportunity to kidnap or kill him or even just expose his secret identity, which suggests to Terry that Dr. Corso might not have actually turned evil.
* IHaveYourWife: He was coerced into helping the criminals when they kidnapped April, his lover. [[spoiler:Tragically, things aren't what they seem.]]
%%* ReluctantMadScientist
%%* SelfDestructMechanism: [[spoiler:"April Moon."]]
* TheDogBitesBack/KickTheSonOfABitch:[[spoiler: He finds out that the leader of the "kidnappers" is fooling around with his unfaithful lover but neither of them know that he does. So when this guy comes by for another upgrade, the doctor plays along, puts him under like usual, and them (it's implied) kills him while he sleeps.]]
* WeCanRebuildHim: He specialized in creating advanced prosthetics before being coerced into turning ordinary criminals into cybernetically enhanced supervillains.

!!The Stalker
->''Voiced by Carl Lumbly''

%%* BaldOfEvil
* BoxedCrook: In his second appearance he's working for the government by tracking down a terrorist.
* CaptainErsatz: Of [[SpiderMan Kraven the Hunter]].
%%* DoesNotLikeShoes
* EgomaniacHunter: Before he was injured due to underestimating a wounded panther.
* EnemyMine: Eventually he works with Terry to hunt down Kobra, but by no means are his sights off Batman's head.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He's willing to kidnap kids if it means getting his target, but when Kobra threatens to release a virus that could potentially kill millions, he'll put his goals aside.
* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Sort of. He can hunt man with incredible ease; he feels the most elusive prey is ''Batman''.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: His first appearance ended with him seemingly being hit by a train; the next episode to feature him didn't mention how he survived, though Terry wasn't surprised to see him alive.
%%* NotSoStoic: See VillainousBreakdown.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Says this to Terry.
-->'''Stalker''': "When you die, it will be by my hand, and my hand alone."
-->'''Terry''': "...thanks... I guess..."
%%* ScaryBlackMan
* TattooedCrook: Sort of. He's never been to prison as far as we know and the markings all over his body are actually body-paint (Terry mistakes them for actual tattoos, but still).
* UnusualEyebrows: The No Eyebrows type.
* VillainousBreakdown: After he's given an electric shock, he starts having hallucinations of the panther that maimed him, causing him to flee in terror.
%%* WorthyOpponent
* WouldntHurtAChild: Has no problems kidnapping Matt and putting him in a cage as a bait but wouldn't harm him for practical and personal reasons.

!!Mad Stan
->''Voiced by Music/HenryRollins''

* AxCrazy: Mad Stan is ''mad''. Being voiced by Henry Rollins will do that for you.
* BadassNormal: Has been beaten and tossed through walls only to get up without visible debilitation.
* {{Bomb Throwing Anarchist|s}}: He wants to blow up society. It's eventually revealed that there's some method to his madness — he chooses his targets based on local news stories that really piss him off.
* BreakoutVillain: Originally a one-shot joke villain thrown in to make Terry miss his date with Dana. The fans [[LargeHam loved him]], and he eventually became a regular member of the RoguesGallery.
* CastingGag: Mad Stan closely resembles Spider from ''Film/JohnnyMnemonic'', even going so far as to mimic his "information overload" rant (minus the profanity.) Henry Rollins played both roles, and Stan was probably modeled after Rollins' performance.
* CatchPhrase: "Blow it all up!"
* {{Expy}}: Stan is a more violent version of Spider, Music/HenryRollins's character in ''Film/JohnnyMnemonic''.
* HairTriggerTemper: Bruce eventually divines that Mad Stan's rampages are always sparked by either a local news story or something directly affecting him. ([[FelonyMisdemeanor Raising the cost of pet licenses?]] "Blow it all up!")
* HiddenDepths: The digital comic tie-in reveals that he knows how to speak Russian and isn't nearly as stupid as he seems.
%%* HotBlooded
%%* LargeHam
* MadBomber: His first line is [[IncomingHam "BLOW IT ALL UP!"]] He is a complete Conspiracy Nut who is obsessed with blowing up large businesses and government institutions, thinking he is saving the public from mass brainwashing.
* MadeOfIron: In his introduction in "Rats" he survives events that would reduce most humans to a fine, red smear. Given the prevalence of superpowered humans in the DCU in general, it's possible he has minor SuperStrength and SuperToughness powers to be able to do all the stuff he does.
%%* NoIndoorVoice
* PetTheDog: He owns a chihuahua named Boom-Boom, whom he cares for deeply.
* RememberTheNewGuy: In his first appearance, dialogue implies that Batman has already dealt with him several times.
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: It was believed that he was among Hush's victims in the comics, but it turns out he was just [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas out of town visiting his mother]] during Hush's murder spree, and comes back from his vacation extremely annoyed that everyone thinks he's dead.
%%* StrawmanPolitical
* StuffBlowingUp: He embodies this, and became [[MemeticMutation an Internet meme]] involving him popping out of somewhere, followed by everything blowing up.
-->Mad Stan: You think this is a joke? Look around, Batman! Society's crumbling! And do you know why? Information overload, man! As a society we're drowning in a quagmire of vid-clips, e-mail, and sound bytes! We can't absorb it all! There's only one sane solution: ''BLOW IT UP!''
* TattooedCrook: You can see an atomic symbol on the back of his neck in "Rats."
* UnstoppableRage: "When Mad Stan's on one of his rants, he's unstoppable."
* WellIntentionedExtremist: For example, he wants to blow up the library because he feels it's a symbol of media oversaturation. Ironically, barely anyone goes to the library in the future.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: In "Rats!", he performs several wrestling moves on Terry, including a pile-driver that leaves his ears stuck in the ground.

!!Patrick "Packrat" Poundstone
->''Voiced by Taran Noah Smith''

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: A downright ''cavernous'' sewer system
* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: His FreudianExcuse.
%%* AxCrazy
* BerserkButton: Dont' mock him.
%%* {{Gonk}}
%%* LonersAreFreaks
* MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: Subverted.
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: His giant rat servants. {{Hand Wave}}d by the presence of toxic waste.
* StalkerWithACrush: To Dana. She doesn't take too kindly to being kidnapped, no matter how conscientious her captor is, [[spoiler:then she finds out that she's not the first person he's stalked.]]
%%* YouDirtyRat

!!Ian Peek
->''Voiced by Michael Mckean

A slimy gossip reporter who steals a high-tech belt that makes him intangible. He was one of the very few characters on the show to discover Batman's identity.

* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:Heavily implied to be his final fate.]]
* CutLexLuthorACheck: He doesn't market the belt, but knows how to use it without getting in legal trouble.
* DeathBySecretIdentity: [[spoiler:Before he can expose Bruce and Terry's secret on a tabloid television program, Ian Peek becomes completely intangible and falls to the Earth's core.]]
%%* EvilBrit
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Played with. Even though he's understandably ''terrified'' at his predicament, he eventually figures "screw it", starts laughing at the situation, and waves goodbye to Terry before he disappears.]]
%%* FatalFlaw: Two. Pride and Greed.
%%* HoistByHisOwnPetard
%%* IntangibleMan
* IntrepidReporter: He seems to ''think'' of himself as this, anyway.
%%* JerkAss
* LargeHam: He's quite a showman besides being a gossip reporter.
* LaughingMad: [[spoiler:After he realizes he's doomed.]]
%%* SmugSnake
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: As Bruce points out, Terry can't go after him because he's simply a reporter gathering information for his stories.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:As he loses control of his tangibility, Ian loses all hope, stops screaming for help and starts ''laughing.'']]


A reptilian cult that seeks to take over the world.

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: In "Unmasked", after Batman defeats all his mooks, the leader of Kobra throws himself into his own [[SharkPool cobra pit]].
%%* NebulousEvilOrganization

!!The Joker
->''Voiced by MarkHamill''

[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/DCAU-BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesRoguesGallery See here for info dealing with him in the rest of the DCAU]].

* BlowingARaspberry: After the following statement:
-->Adios, Brucie. I guess I should salute you as a [[WorthyOpponent worthy adversary]] and all that, but the truth is I really did hate your guts.
* GeniusBruiser: [[spoiler:He made the device that controls Tim]].
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:How he survived, thanks to a control chip planted in Tim Drake's neck years ago.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Twice. The first is when Tim turns on the Joker and administers the fatal strike. The second is when Terry uses the Joker's own joy buzzer to fry the control chip in Tim's body.]]
* KillSat: His master plan is to use one to carve up Gotham into a smiley face.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Happens twice, averting his own JokerImmunity.]]
* LargeHam: As usual.
* LightningBruiser: Surprisingly, he can overpower Terry (who's physical strength is increased from the suit) with ease.
* MonsterClown: Still has the skin and hair after all these years.
%%* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler: Tim...]]
* VillainousBreakdown [[spoiler: "YOU"RE NOT BATMAN!"]]

!!Charlie "Big Time" Bigelow
->''Voiced by Stephen Baldwin ("Big Time") and Creator/ClancyBrown ("Betrayal")''

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Although he learns to love his new form.
* BigBadWannabe: Wants to stop being a little fish in a big pond.
* BodyHorror: He becomes a deformed hulk in his transformation into Big Time with unevenly sized appendages.
* EvilFormerFriend: He starts out as a shady old friend of Terry's and becomes a true villain when he turns into Big Time.
* FalseFriend: Subsequent events in the episode "Betrayal" make clear that at that point Bigelow just saw Terry as hired muscle and he may have never been Terry's real friend.
%%* ItsAllAboutMe
* {{Jerkass}}: Terry goes out of his way to get him a second chance on more than one occasion, but he always reverts back to his crime-loving ways. The guy just doesn't seem to be capable of accepting that there are ways besides breaking the law to make a good living. He also has a bad habit of wanting to pull Terry into a life of crime simply for the sake of having someone he knows and can trust, even arranging for Terry to be ''kidnapped.'' Terry is quick to call him out on his selfishness.
%%* LargeAndInCharge
* NotSoHarmless: The fact of the matter is, he may not be smart, but he knows how to push Terry's buttons.
* SuperSerum: His transformation is the result of a growth steroid for plants. Apparently learning from his example, said serum is used on dogs in another episode.

!!Ra's al Ghul
-> ''Voiced by David Warner''

%%* BeardOfEvil
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:On his own ''daughter'', Talia—with plans to do it to Bruce.]]
%%* HesBack
* IdenticalGrandson: [[spoiler:Upon successfully taking over Bruce's body, he planned to create an identity as the long-lost son of Bruce and Talia, which would've invoked this trope]].
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Says this line verbatim to justify [[spoiler:placing his mind into his daughter's body in order to cheat death.]]
* ImmortalityImmorality: He's avoiding death through GrandTheftMe.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:This fate ironically befalls Ra's at the end of "Out of the Past", when a loose wire falls into a Lazarus Pit and makes a massive explosion that destroys Ra's lair with Ra's inside of it, making the observation "it's safe" just before everything explodes without Ra's realizing.]]
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: He loves immortality so much he's gone through three separate methods of beating back the grim reaper.
* NoodleIncident: Near Apocalypse of '09 where Batman kicked his ass harder than usual.
%%* OffingTheOffspring
* ShadowArchetype: Like Bruce, he wants to carry on his goals via a younger successor.
* ShowingOffTheNewBody: As the commentary points out, [[spoiler:Ra's in Talia's body has a much more stereotypically feminine and sexy swagger than Talia herself ever did. Ra's seems to relish dressing in a SpyCatsuit, swinging his hips, and tossing his hair.]]
* VoicesAreMental: Sort of. He ''can'' use his body's original voice when he feels like it but also uses his own.

->''Voiced by Alexis Denisof''

* {{Expy}}: Though they weren't created at the same time, Zander's upbringing sounds scarily similar to [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Damian Wayne's]] in the comics. He's just older, while Damian left the League of Assasins at age ten and has a chance to be a hero, Zander never got out of Kobra.
%%* OneWingedAngel
%%* ScaledUp
* ShadowArchetype: Was supposed to be a dark mirror to Terry before he [[spoiler:[[OneWingedAngel turned into a dinosaur man]]]].
* VillainousCrush: On Max.


%%* AlienInvasion
* AntiVillain: Starro was originally an alien creature who was kidnapped unfairly and only wished to return to its home planet, but was too weak to escape and do so. It is unknown how long it was stuck, but by the time Superman comes along the creature is so enraged and vengeful over its captivity that it doesn't care if Superman treats it kindly or not - it only wishes to use him to make a new homeworld of its own by force.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Starro does this to [[spoiler: {{Superman}} and the entire Justice League Unlimited except for Terry and Micron]].
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: A shocking and disturbing example. Starro hides in plain sight by attaching himself to [[spoiler: {{Superman}}, in one of the biggest twists of the series and as a ContinuityNod to SupermanTheAnimatedSeries]], and in the process taking over his mind and body until Terry manages to free him from Starro's control. The scariest part? Starro managed to maintain the masquerade for ''years''.
* PragmaticVillainy: After Terry and the Justice League thwart Starro's attempt to conquer Earth, they get rid of him once and for all by returning him and all his clones to his home planet. Starro and his clones are more than willing to return to their own planet when they're given the opportunity, instead of sticking around and trying to conquer Earth again.
%%* PuppeteerParasite
* SendInTheClones: Starro's casual time controlling [[spoiler:Superman]] was apparently dedicated to creating a clone army to take over Earth, since he is the last of his kind. He only goes evil when they're ready to spread.
%%* StarfishAlien: Obviously.

!!The Repeller/Dr. Suzuki
->''Voiced by Gedde Watanabe''

* BarrierWarrior: His main weapon is an improved version of a force field designed to protect people born without immune systems.
* BattleAura: What his force field looks like.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Started off as just a second-in-command doctor at a sterile facility for kids without immune systems. However, once he figured out a way to improve their force field technology, he used it to steal rare chemicals and sell them to terrorists.
* LoudOfWar: Terry defeats him by turning on a loud turbine engine. Suzuki isn't wearing his helmet at the time and the force field prevents him from covering his ears, forcing him to turn it off.


[[folder:Comic-Only Characters]]

!!Dick Grayson

* AlternateSelf: He gets a glimpse of his alternate self in the Justice Lords universe, where he's HappilyMarried with Barbara and has a son.
* BadassInDistress: [[spoiler: Gets captured by Dusk as a means of getting access to the Justice Lords timeline.]]
* BigBrotherMentor: He shows a lot of concern for Terry's well-being.
* DatingCatwoman: Literally. He's been sleeping with the Beyondverse's Catwoman.
* {{Foil}}: As a mentor to Terry. In contrast to the cold and demanding Bruce, Dick is considerably warmer, and advises Terry to make time for his personal life.
* EyepatchOfPower: His lack of depth perception has hardly affected his aim with batarangs.
* HandicappedBadass: Despite having a bullet lodged near his spine, he seems perfectly capable of going out into the field.
* KnightInSourArmor: He's a bitter old man, but he quickly throws himself back into the crimefighting business upon meeting Terry.
* NiceGuy / JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his gruff exterior, he's surprisingly friendly to most people, other than Bruce.
* RageAgainstTheMentor: Happened a lot time ago, with Bruce. Dick is still bitter towards him.
* WorkingWithTheEx: With Commissioner Gordon, although it's been a good 50 years since they last spoke.

!!The Joker King [[spoiler:(Douglas Tan)]]

* AloofBigBrother: [[spoiler:Bordering on TheSociopath, until it's discovered there's a very good reason why he's so quiet.]]
* AscendedFanboy: He always wanted to be Joker. Well ...
* TheBadGuyWins: Subverted. He wanted to destroy Gotham and kill his family. [[spoiler: He only mostly won. Yes Gotham is in tatters but his family is alive albeit traumatized.]]
* BadassNormal: No powers, no augmentation, and no flashy gadgets or gimmicks, but he beats up Batman.
* BigBrotherBully: [[spoiler:His obsession with The Joker started young, but he didn't just torment Dana - he tormented ''everyone.'' In the present day, he's brusque to the point of harsh to Dana.]]
* BlackSheep: He is alienated from his family because of his obsession with the Joker.
* BombThrowingAnarchist: What he drugs the Jokerz to do. [[spoiler: Suicidally.]]
* CainAndAbel: Zigzagged. He wanted to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill his dad first.]] However, Dana demanded him to kill her first. Doug puts the gun down and asks if she is serious. [[HopeSpot He puts the gun back up because he was just checking if she really meant it.]]
* CivilianVillain: [[spoiler:Douglas]] was sent away to Juvie, and later prison in hopes of rehabilitating him. Instead, he came back with a greater vision - unifying The Jokerz under one, psychotic banner.
* DarkMessiah: How he sees himself. He brings the scattered Jokerz together with the express purpose of murdering as many people as possible, and his charisma gets them ready to sacrifice themselves to do so. [[spoiler: Charisma and a ''lot'' of mind control serum secretly sprayed from the trees.]]
%%* ForTheEvulz
* GoOutWithASmile: Because he won. [[spoiler: Or so he thought.]]
* HellBentForLeather: In a stark contrast with [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker the first Joker,]] The Joker King's outfit consists of a leather jacket and matching pants, a shredded wife-beater, and... ''[[NightmareFace creative]]'' use of facepaint.
** Which means this phrase is appropriate! "[[WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood When I wore that outfit, it was classy; more Mater D than Motorcycle Fetish!]]"
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: Bruce Wayne]] was dying and needed a liver transplant. [[spoiler: Joker King]] died and thus didn't need his liver anymore. [[spoiler: Bruce even lampshades that the Joker would have found this hilarious.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Before he faces Batman, he kills his cellmate. No one sheds a tear since he was just a follower who never showed any redeeming traits.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: He was always violent. It just got worse after he returned from jail.
* PaterFamilicide: Inverted. He's the son and he wants to wipe out his entire family.
* StrawNihilist: Has a serious obsession with [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker the original Joker]] but believes that he '''didn't go far enough,''' using Nihilism as a means to an end instead of just ForTheEvulz.
* WouldHitAGirl: When he [[spoiler:heads to Gotham General to murder his father, Dana steps in front of his gun. After a half-hearted attempt to get her to move, he simply shrugs and moves to shoot her too.]]

!!Vigilante [[spoiler:(Jake Chill)]]

* TheAlcoholic: Was this until he became the Vigilante.
* TheAtoner: After recovering his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment which was [[spoiler: Murdering Terry's father.]]
* BerserkerTears: At his lowest point just before he [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] the burglars in his apartment.
-->'''[[spoiler: Jake Chil]]''': You want to take everything I have?! You want to give me a beat-down?! Well, bring it on, slapheads, cause I CAN'T sink any longer!
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Justified. That's what he told the news squad to call him.
* GenerationXerox: His surname is '''Chill''' and he [[spoiler: murdered Terry's father. He is Joe Chill's great grandson.]]
* HeroicResolve: What pulls him out of his VillainousBSOD and alcoholism.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:He gets dosed with Joker Toxin so strong it stops his heart and kills him.]]
* PoweredArmor: Just like Batman, without the bat motif.
* PunchClockVillain: He grows out of it after crossing one too many lines as this.
* VillainousBSOD: After he gets fired by Bruce. He just lets go until he sees Batman and gets his HeroicResolve to become TheAtoner.
* SlasherSmile: Holee shit, is it effective. Perhaps it's one reason why he wears his helmet.
* StartOfDarkness: Being part of the [[EliteMooks Quiet Squad]] does that to you, especially when you're working for a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive man named Powers.]]
