Black Mask (Wade Williams)

  • Bad Boss: When ranting about Red Hood, he's willing to randomly punch his subordinates.
  • Big Bad Wannabe
  • Captain Obvious: During a rant about taking down the Red Hood.
    Mask: Maybe my last request was too mired in subtlety. I want this man dead. When I say "dead", I mean "seriously dead". Beaten. Broken! HIS-HEAD-MOUNTED-ON-MY-WALL KINDA DEAD!
    Ms. Li: Understood. We'll be taking further precautions at every transaction.
    Mask: Screw that! Time he learned that this is a contact sport. We're going on offense. Rough up his business; something big! Something loud! When he shows up to shut us down, have a party waiting for him! And when I say "party" I actually mean a 'whole lot of people who are gonna KILL HIM!
    Li: I figured.
    Mask: Just being clear.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's clearly uncomfortable with hiring the Joker.
  • Genre Savvy: He understands that he is just "stuck in the damned crossfire" of something bigger, and is fully aware that dealing with the Joker will be unpleasant, to say the least.
  • Large Ham: His mannerisms are based on Al Pacino in full overblown gangster mode.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Of the Red Hood.

Ms. Li (Kelly Hu)

Ra's al Ghul (Jason Isaacs)

  • Affably Evil: He states that he never resorts to violence or killing unless it's for a "greater cause" and is deeply remorseful that his hiring of the Joker was ultimately what lead to Jason's murder; his attempt to fix things via Lazarus Pit resurrection is what sets off the main plot.
  • The Atoner: After Jason's death, Ra's chooses not to oppose Batman again, and tries to resurrect Jason to try and repair the damage he inadvertantly caused.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He is greatly upset by the death of Jason, calling it both unnecessary and brutal. Batman points out he never had a problem killing before. Ra's counters by pointing out he has killed for a greater good, never for laughs as Joker did.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After his action's cause Jason's death, and again, after hearing of Jason's actions as the Red Hood, following Ra's raising him from the dead.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist
