  • Abusive Parents
  • Afraid of Needles: in a throwaway gag, he reveals that he kicked out of med school because he kept screaming every time he saw needles.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Annoying Younger Sibling:...Turned evil.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Adam, Bree, and Chase.
  • Badass
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's comedic and a bit light hearted. But underneath it all he's a cold blooded super villain, who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals and is the most dangerous force they've faced as of yet.
  • Big Bad
    • Big Bad Duumvirate: Has formed one with Victor Krane, but just barely. until Krane goes completely insane, betrays him and tries to kill him
  • Cain and Abel: With Donald.
  • Enemy Mine: He is fed up with Victor Krane after being betrayed by him and teams up with the Lab Rats in Taken.
    • This happens again in Which Father Knows Best?, where Leo had to find Douglas, because Douglas was the only one who could restore Bree's bionics.
  • Envy: Towards his older brother Donald. Is implied to be at least partially responsible for him turning evil.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: When his plan to control Adam, Bree, and Chase with the Triton App fails, he claims he can update the Triton App, and his business partner Victor Crane tells him to use it to destroy them. Douglas says destroying the Lab Rats was never part of his plan. Crane tells him they're using his plan now and leaves. Douglas has a reluctant look on his face.
    • Subverted, since it's presently unclear if its generally out of care for them, or simply the desire to use them. Granted, Douglas can kill the Lab Rats anytime he wants and have no qualms about it, but he just happened to end up in a "wrong place, wrong time" scenario.
  • Evil Genius
  • Evil Step-Uncle: To Leo.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Upon his second encounter he refused to reveal his evil plan to them, knowing that if he did, then when something went wrong they would use it against him.
    • He also anticipates Krane's betrayal, and fakes his death convincingly enough that Krane is doesn't suspect his return to stop him
  • Faux Affably Evil: Douglas may be cheerful and seeming friendly, but underneath it all he's cold blooded and ruthless, case point him suggesting they (he Adam, Bree and Chase) plan family game night while working to enslave them.
  • Human Popsicle: Gets frozen solid by his brother's new freeze ray after Chase tricked him.
  • Insufferable Genius
  • It's All About Me
  • Just a Machine: He's pretty indifferent, almost amused by the fact that his son is going to die before turning 16 because Marcus is 'just an android'.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Much darker than most of the shows other villains, and most Disney villains in general. Although still portrayed as somewhat light hearted, he is a realistic mad scientist, who's engaged in experimenting on children, has no problems committing outright murder (even to his own family) and his long term goal is a mixture of brainwashing, slavery and Child Soldiers.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father
  • Mad Scientist: An interesting example, rather than being a stereotypical mad scientist. Douglas is instead presented as someone who is closer to realistically dangerously insane, and is also a super genius scientist.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate
  • Psychotic Man Child
  • Shadow Archetype: To Donald. Donald may have been an arrogant jerk who doesn't always treat Leo or the Lab Rats with proper respect, but he at least tries to keep it in check. Douglas on the other hand is far worse—he is basically Donald if the latter did not keep his arrogance and pride in check.
  • We Can Rule Together: Tries this with Chase. It backfires horribly.
  • Would Hurt a Child
