A straighter example is him and his actual father, Douglas. Both are geniuses who feel like they are overshadowed by their older siblings, and seek recognition. This is what Douglas tries to exploit in Chase.
Mind over Matter: Called 'molecularkinesis', it's Chase's hidden bionic ability.
Eye Beams: Has this power whenever he gets very angry.
Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish to Chase's Responsible. When Adam did start to act more responsible in terms of safety, it developed into paranoia and created a lot more problems for the team than those that result from his usual carelessness.
Kamehame Hadoken: Adam's hidden bionic ability, it's a Hand Blast powerful enough to instantly drop superpowered androids with one shot, and does enough collateral damage to collapse hidden underground lairs.
He got it - in "Bionic Showdown" where he used Donald's exoskeleton to save the others from Marcus, and in "Parallel Universe", where he actually was temporarily given the bionics of the Leo from that universe.
Played by: Hal Sparks
Abusive Parent: Became a plot point in "The Lab Rats Strike Back". But apart from that he's generally a good man, he just seems have trouble balancing his responsibilities.
Big Good: Just barely. His own inventions have failed at times, and by refusing to take responsibility for his mistakes, it is a stretch to consider him a good person.
He is DEFINITELY this after we learn he took his brother's kids when he learns Douglas implanted the bionics (which were meant for robots not humans hence the glitches) and was going to use them as child soldiers for the highest bidder.
A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Surprisingly averted. Eddy is a pain in the butt but for the most part glitch-free (or is he, really?), while the AI in Davenport's car in Speed Trapped only went awry because of Marcus. On the other hand, he's always too helpful.
For the Evulz: Her primary motivation for tormenting the students on a daily basis.
Freudian Excuse: She's had several of these from her lifetime that are part of the reason she is cruel—kids would make fun of her first and middle name, and she was rejected from several things. In Little Brother, it's implied that most of her problems are because of her mother.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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'.
Knightof 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.
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.
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.
