    The Bat Family 

Bruce Wayne/Batman

Voiced by: Rino Romano

"Let's hope it's not the Batman that brings out the freaks..."

Son of wealthy entrepreneurs Thomas and Martha Wayne, who were gunned down one evening coming out of a theater as a young Bruce watched. Vowing to take revenge on the criminal underworld, he spent years abroad to hone mind and body so he could act as Gotham City's midnight vigilante, using stealth and the imagery of a bat to intimidate his prey. He is the CEO of Waynetech, developer of technologies such as his elite crimefighting vehicle and a device called the "Bat-Wave". The Batman follows a 26-year old Bruce during the adventures in his third year as Batman.

Alfred Pennyworth

Voiced by: Alastair Duncan

The Wayne family's loyal retainer who saw Bruce through his emotionally dark childhood following the murder of his parents. He is privy to Bruce's secret identity as Batman and maintains the Batcave whilst Bruce is in the field.

Barbara Gordon/Batgirl

Voiced by: Danielle Judovits, Kellie Martin (as Oracle in "Artifacts")

Daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon who joins Batman's war on crime during the show's third season, who takes on the persona "Batgirl" when patrolling the city. Unlike the comics, Batgirl joined Batman before Robin.

Dick Grayson/Robin

Voiced by: Evan Sabara, Jerry O'Connell (as Nightwing in "Artifacts")

A young boy who Bruce Wayne takes in after his parents are killed by a gangster named "Tony Zucco". Bruce trains him in order to bring Dick into his crime fighting family, who adopts the moniker "Robin". Comes into the show in season 4, which differs from the comics as Batgirl had already been a part of Batman's team by that point.

    Supporting Characters 

Commissioner Jim Gordon

Voiced by: Mitch Pileggi

  • Badass Mustache
  • The Commissioner Gordon: Obviously.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: According to Jeff Matsuda, Gordon was the young officer seen in the flashback in "Traction."
  • Parental Obliviousness: The poor guy can never fully connect with his daughter due to clashing views, and even years into the future, he still doesn't know about her superhero double-life. Justified, as the only time he ever got a good luck at Batgirl was the first time he met her, and he was missing his glasses.
    • Yet, he noticed Batgirl's hair color.
    "Another redhead?"
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Another given.
  • Remember the New Guy: Aside from the Early-Bird Cameo, Gordon's this. Alfred comments that "James Gordon has loomed large over [Bruce's] life." Then at the newly-installed Batsignal, Gordon says to Batman, "Thanks to all of your efforts, Batman, the time is finally right to take our alliance to the next step." Both said despite the fact that prior to "Night and the City," Gordon hadn't appeared in the present day.

Detective Ellen Yin

Voiced by: Ming-Na

  • Adaptational Attractiveness / Race Lift: She's basically an Asian-American and far more attractive version of Ellen Yindell from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, with her name, her journey from distrusting and hunting Batman to trusting and helping him, and the fact that a mention in "Artifacts" had her replacing Gordon as Commissioner.
  • Action Girl
  • Bound and Gagged: In "Riddled".
  • Brother Chuck: Aside from a reference in "Artifacts", where it's stated she replaced Gordon as commissioner in the future, she's not seen or heard from again after Season 2, though she does appear on occasions in "The Batman Strikes" comic.
  • The Commissioner Gordon: Before Gordon himself appeared on the show, anyway, and while she was Batman's ally.
  • The Chick: To Angel Rojas' Gotham PD.
  • Damsel in Distress: Gets rescued by Batman more than once after the first season. In "Strange Minds", the Joker kidnaps her and nearly blows her up. Though she at least tries to fight Joker, he takes her by surprise and wins due to that.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: In Season 2.
  • Designated Victim: Moreso after the first season.
  • Enemy Mine: Pulls one with Batman to defeat Man-Bat.
  • Expy: Is more or less the counterpart of Renee Montoya. Which is a bit funny because Renee Montoya originated in B:TAS and became a Canon Immigrant.
    • Adaptational Villainy/ Took a Level in Jerkass: Montoya was a supporter of the Batman from the start and was a nice reasonable cop who helped him take down criminals. However Ellen was an enemy of Batman and tries to capture the vigilante several times. She was also a cold and dismissive cop who enforces the law regardless of morals and gets called out by Ethan for it. While Montoya is grateful of Batman's heroic acts that saved Gotham from criminals, Yin continues to act like a bitch towards him. Fortunately, she pulls a Heel-Face Turn and becomes Batman's ally in season two.
    • She also heavily resembles Elisa Maza transposed into the Batman universe. She even wears the same outfit. Interestingly, Greg Weisman also wrote a handful of episodes for the series.
  • Fair Cop
  • Genre Savvy: In "Traction" , she notifies all police officers to station at every hospital and to be on a lookout for a newly arrived patient with multiple wounds and fractures, knowing that if she finds the patient she would find Batman. She would have likely capture Batman if it weren't for Alfred.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Comes to realize that the Batman is not a menace and becomes his ally in Season 2.
  • Inspector Javert: In Season 1.
  • Jerkass
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She acts cold and dismissive in the first season but it is shown in the finale that she cares for Ethan.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Number Two: To Chief Rojas especially in season 1.
  • Secret Keeper: Subverted in "Fire & Ice". Ellen tells Bruce she figured out his secret. The secret is that Bruce wasn't a "spoiled, arrogant playboy" he made himself out to be.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: Solidly Lawful in season 1, wanting to arrest Batman for being a vigilante. She's changed her mind.
  • Sexy Soaked Shirt: In the series premiere, she gets this scene by running in the rain and swimming across a river to get to Arkham Asylum.by season 2.
  • Unwilling Suspension: In "Riddled" to some extent.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: She continues to act like a jerk towards Batman after he rescues her a few times. This is later averted in season 2.

Chief Angel Rojas

Voiced by: Edward James Olmos, Jesse Corti

  • Asshole Victim: Almost. He was targeted by a newly-transformed-into-Clayface Ethan Bennett after how badly he treated Bennett.
  • Brother Chuck: Disappeared after Season 2.
  • Da Chief
  • Expy: He's basically Harvey Bullock with a higher rank and no redeeming qualities. He's also Hispanic.
  • Inspector Javert
  • Jerkass: He doesn't exactly treat a lot of his subordinates with any real respect.
  • Kick the Dog: His treatment of Ethan in the first season finale.
    • And also his treatment of Yin in the second season finale.
  • The Leader: Of Gotham PD.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: Just watch most of the episodes he's in. There's no way this idiot should've gotten as far on the force as he did.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Batman's saved Rojas and his officers quite a few times, yet he's still a jerk towards him.

Cash Tankenson

Voiced by: Patrick Warburton

Lucius Fox

Voiced by: Louis Gossett Jr.

    The Justice League 

Clark Kent/Superman

Voiced by: George Newbern

Barry Allen/The Flash

Voiced by: Charlie Schlatter

Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

Voiced by: Dermot Mulroney

J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter

Voiced by: Dorian Harewood

  • Brought Down to Normal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Combo Platter Powers: In addition to the normal set of flight, shapeshifting, telepathy, super strength and speed, and intangibility/nigh invulnerability, this incarnation also has telekinesis
  • Last of His Kind: It's generally believed that the Joining killed the rest of the Martians in this continuity.
  • Mind over Matter: This version of J'onn has telekinesis.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: J'onn seems to have a psychological fear of fire. Hence the Joining could point an armed (but not discharged) flamethrower at the guy and make him back off.

Oliver Queen/Green Arrow

Voiced by: Chris Hardwick

Katar Hol/Hawkman

Voiced by: Robert Patrick

  • Brought Down to Normal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
  • Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: He was never addressed by his real name, but the fact he comments about fighting criminals on two worlds and the comment about the Batcave resembling Thanagar Police Headquarters pretty much confirm he's Katar Hol.
  • Space Police

    The Rogues Gallery 

Joker

  • Adaptational Badass: He is actually quite good in a hand-to-hand fight compared to his original incarnation. Though his direct fighting traits get somewhat minimized as the series progressed, and this was actually a very contentious depiction.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Batman, obviously.
  • Asshole Victim: As with Rojas, he almost became one. And by the same person (Ethan Bennett/Clayface I), no less. And like Rojas, he deserved Ethan's enmity towards him, basically being the one who more or less made him Clayface.
  • Ax-Crazy: As is standard of the Joker. His first appearance shows him breaking into an asylum for the criminally insane and releasing the inmates, then trying to dose the entire town with his "Joker Gas" simply For the Evulz.
  • Bad Boss: Doesn't really treat Punch and Judy, his two most recurring henchmen, that nicely and even leaves them to get arrested so he won't miss his favorite TV show.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: As part of his feral characterization, he really doesn't like it. Even in later appearances where he starts acting more like his prior cartoon depiction, he still doesn't usually wear shoes.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?/Even Evil Has Standards: In season one, when Joker learns that Gotham P.D. considers Batman (a crime-fighting vigilante) more of a threat than him (Gotham's worst criminal), he's properly outraged.
  • Electric Joybuzzer Accidentally kills himself with one. Well, almost.
  • Evil Laugh: Perhaps one of the most distinctive ones yet.
  • Faux Affably Evil: No matter how affable he can sometimes feign being, he's truly an evil man.
  • Fighting Clown: Literally; more so than any Joker before him, this Joker is clearly a trained fighter, seemingly using Monkey-style kung fu — lots of flipping, rolling around, leaping back and forth, and sudden, unpredictable strikes. Because of the divided reaction this elicited, this trait got dialed back in subsequent appearance, especially after the first season.
  • For the Evulz: Just about everything he does
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: We don't get the full story, but in this version The Joker was apparently a boring office drone who dreamed of making people laugh.
  • Handy Feet: This is why he doesn't like to wear shoes; he's very good at using his feet as makeshift hands.
  • The Hyena: Always laughing at something.
  • Institutional Apparel: Sports a green and purple straitjacket in his first few appearances.
  • Large Ham
  • Lightning Bruiser: Very fast, very agile, and very good at hitting people.
  • Maniac Monkeys: Has a very "feral ape" motif in his earliest appearances, especially the first episode. He climbs and clambers all over the place, uses his feet and hands interchangeably, monkey-like fighting style, he even tends to adopt a Primal Stance. He's very reminiscent of a crazy Tarzan in clown makeup.
  • Mad Artist: Carries shades of this, depending on the episode - in "The Rubberface of Comedy", for instance, he uses his "Joker Putty" to re-sculpt his own face onto a statue, and even wears a beret during the process!
  • Mind Rape: Does this to an already under stress Ethan Bennett.
  • Monster Clown: Arguably more monster than clown, with his very "feral" portrayal — Primal Stance, ape-like fighting style, perpetually bare and ambidextrous feet — though this turned a lot of fans of the older series off of him.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Toward Batman; to the point he personally takes care of Wrath and Scorn so they won't "take away the fun" by revealing Batman's identity.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He sports them.
  • Scary Teeth: They're jigsaw-shaped, visibly slotting together. Not conventionally scary, but the effect is quite disturbing.
  • Slasher Smile: He wouldn't be Joker without this.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Averted. Unlike most versions, he's usually just called "Joker".
  • Would Hurt a Child: Tried to dump Prank, his would-be Kid Sidekick, into the vat of chemicals that created him, fully aware that even he didn't know what would happen to the kid.

Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

Selina Kyle/Catwoman

Voiced by: Gina Gershon

Edward Nigma/The Riddler

Voiced by: Robert Englund

Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy

Voiced by: Piera Coppola

  • Anti-Villain: Type III, much more so in The Batman Strikes comic series.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Can inflict this on others, even Batman and Superman; though both cases were temporary and in Superman's case, Kryptonite was needed and Lex Luthor was using her.
  • Does Not Like Shoes
  • Evil Former Friend
  • Green Thumb
  • She's All Grown Up: In The Batman Strikes, her body is drawn in a more adult way, showing that's she finally growing into the full-fledged seductress she's known as in other continuities.
  • Hidden Depths / Les Yay: She seems to still want to be friends with Barbara Gordon. In "Batgirl Begins, Part 2", she wants her to join on her mission to save the plants of the world. And in a later episode, she offers her a mind-controlling plant.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Is a user who often takes advantage of people's attempts to help her. Even before her turn to supervillainy, she tended to respond to heartfelt moments and opportunities for redemption with even more self-centered behavior.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Best shown when Barbara attempts to talk her out of her scheme with Temblor. When Barbara points out that hiring a mercenary with money she doesn't have is way over her head, her response is to ignore her and casually indicate that their friendship is over. Then, when Barbara's warning turns out to be correct and the merc comes for revenge, Barbara tries to help her out of it anyways... and Pam abandons her, leaving Barbara to be killed by Temblor to buy herself some time.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Again, made more apparent in The Batman Strikes.
    • Also apparent in "Fleurs De Mal".
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Pam wasn't all right in the head as a normal human, but she really lost it when she became Poison Ivy.
  • Younger and Hipper: She is around Batgirl's age in this version.

Hugo Strange

Voiced by: Frank Gorshin, Richard Green

Killer Croc

Voiced by: Ron Perlman

  • Barbie Doll Anatomy
  • Beast and Beauty: In an issue of The Batman Strikes, Croc falls in love with a news reporter, in part because she's the only person who refers to him as a man and not a monster. In the end, it turns out she rather likes him too, and he gives himself up to the police for her.
  • Beast Man: Possibly Croc's most beastlike incarnation to date. Thankfully, the writers didn't claim that he had a "skin condition" this time.
  • Expy: Of Leatherhead from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. .
  • Genius Bruiser: Especially when compared with his Dumb Muscle portrayal in Batman: The Animated Series.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: All he wears is a vest.
  • Kill 'em All: What his debut plan could have lead to, flooding Gotham to have the run of the place would have drowned several if not most of the populous.
    Croc: And I'll shed a crocodile tear for each and every one of them.
  • Multiple Choice Past: We don't know whether he's a military genetic experiment gone awry, he deals with the wrong kind of voodoo magic in the swamps, or if he's simply a circus freak.
    • If the tie-in comic, The Batman Strikes counts as All In The Manual, then according to issue 25, he was both a military genetic experiment subject before escaping, then was part of a circus freakshow before escaping that and ultimately coming to Gotham, though it's still unknown if he was born like that as in the comics or if being part an experiment is the reason for his appearance.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile
  • Ragin' Cajun

Mr. Freeze

Voiced by: Clancy Brown

Ethan Bennett/Clayface I

Voiced by: Steve Harris

  • Adaptation Distillation: Clayface was a sympathetic character in Batman: The Animated Series. Here, he's an outright tragic figure.
  • Anti-Villain: A definite Type II.
  • The Atoner: For his rampages as Clayface.
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Black Best Friend: To Bruce and Ellen.
  • Canon Foreigner: Ethan wasn't in the comics.
  • Composite Character: His personality/arc has more in common with Two-Face than most Clayfaces.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Destined Bystander: Ethan Bennett was a cop and a friend of Bruce's who appeared throughout Season One before becoming Clayface.
  • Driven to Villainy: He got better.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: As has become the "norm" for the Clayface character. His body is comprised of something molecularly identical to clay, letting him reshape himself into any form he wants.
  • Enemy Mine: He tries to help Batman take down the Joker when he resurfaces, but Batman won't let him out of concern for his mental health. When the second Clayface appears, Batman and Robin willingly let him help them take the new guy down.
  • Expy: Is more or less the counterpart of Crispus Allen.
    • Also, he is Harvey Dent/Two-Face. From the long friendship with Bruce right down to calling Batman "Bats," a la Harvey from The Long Halloween.
  • Fallen Hero
  • Heel-Face Revolving Door: Starts out on the Face side, goes into the Heel side briefly, makes another attempt on the Face side briefly, slips back into the Heel side, then in Season 4 ended up back of the Face side and stays there.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: At first: it doesn't take long for him to get dangerously good with his powers.
  • Knight of Cerebus: As Clayface.
  • Mind Rape: Ethan suffers this at the hands of the Joker.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: By pretty much everyone who didn't know him personally and by Rojas. Though considering that Rojas was a Jerkass who had a hand in his fall.
  • Scooby-Doo Hoax: Impersonates Solomon Grundy during "Grundy's Night", when the villain is nothing more than folklore in the series' continuity. However, Grundy is implied to be Real After All.
  • That Man Is Dead: He tells Batman and Ellen to say goodbye to Ethan Bennet after his first shot at returning to a normal life. Subverted when he manages a Heel-Face Turn later anyway.
  • Token Good Teammate: Before his Face-Heel Turn, he was the only cop who supported Batman and believed that Gotham needs him. Ethan also was grateful of Batman rescuing his life and taking down criminals. On the flip side, Rojas and Yin remain ungrateful of Batman's actions and still antagonize him, even trying to unmask Batman at one point to which Ethan calls out on. In one early episode, he allows Batman to fight Bane without police interference, knowing that Rojas' officers would still be unappreciate his efforts.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds

Basil Karlo/Clayface II

Voiced by: Wallace Langham

  • Attention Whore: Not only doesn't he even try to hide from security cameras, he'll look into them and boast about what he's going to do. He also went on a news program and tried to tell a bogus sob story. In fact, aside from a brief instant when he felt some regret after attacking some people for rejecting him for an acting job, he embraces it after realizing he's famous because of it now and got angry when Batman was mentioned in the aforementioned news program.
  • Bad Bad Acting: He wasn't a good actor before he became Clayface and he still sucks at it when he gets his powers.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Subverted as he doesn't really seem to have one and parodied it as he tried to tell a story where he and his sister had to fend for themselves, but the reporter he tells it to clearly wasn't buying it.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: More powerful than Ethan Bennet, attributed in-universe to his taking a larger dose of mutagen.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Ethan.
  • Legacy Character: Interesting, considering that Karlo in the comics was the progenitor of the identity.
  • Large Ham

Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn

Voiced by: Hynden Walch

  • Adaptation Distillation: Came through with very few changes thanks in part to her introduction episode being written by Paul Dini.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys
  • Berserk Button: Not only was she upset that she got fired and her show canceled and a new show takes over her time slot, but the psychiatrist of that show plans to talk about how Harley's emotional breakdown after being fired led to a life of crime and that she was a lousy psychiatrist to begin with.
  • Blondes are Evil
  • Comic Book Fantasy Casting: She certainly sounds a lot like Arleen Sorkin.
  • Dark Mistress
  • Dumb Blonde: What everyone thinks of her. She got an online degree in psychology to show everyone she's more than just a pretty face, but apparently no one could get past it. Her rage at this is what initially drives her to join the Joker.
  • Genki Girl: Though less humorous than in Batman: TAS and more dangerously psychotic like in the comics.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: It started with merely following the Joker home to grill him for info for a tell-all book. Then he convinced her to join him on a "night on the town," supposedly to help her research. By the end of it, she had gleefully taken part in a spree of destruction and was willingly trying to attack Batman. And when the media catches wind of this and makes her a pariah for it, she really goes off the deep end.
  • Love Makes You Evil: She was nutty from the start, but the Joker made it much worse.
  • Mad Love: Naturally, though it's played a little different than usual. Here, Joker dotes on Harley and legitimately seems to enjoy her company as opposed to his usual abusive fare, but sees the whole thing as mere entertainment and doesn't really care about her any more than that. Likewise, though he still manipulates her into the whole thing, it's made clear that this version of Harley really enjoys the whole supervillain lifestyle and helps him for reasons more than her usual delusional Extrme Doormat personality.
  • Most Common Superpower: Very noticeable pre-villainy.
  • Perky Female Minion
  • Role Reversal: The tie-in comic gives her her usual team-up with Poison Ivy, but switches the roles around: making Harley the (relatively speaking) level-headed brains of the operation, while Ivy is the unstable one. It helps that Ivy is an impulsive teenager in this continuity, while Harley - while still a totally daffy hedonist - is a bit more independent and cunning than usual.
  • She-Fu
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Her real name is Harleen Quinzel.
  • Unholy Matrimony
  • Villainous Harlequin

Ragdoll

The Joining

  • Big Bad: Of the two-part arcs, "The Joining" and "Lost Heroes".
  • Expy: Of Brainiac. And probably the Alien Invaders in the Justice League animated series "Secret Origins".
  • Planet Looter
  • Omnicidal Maniac

Cluemaster/ Arthur Brown

Voiced by: Glenn Shadix

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Inverted big time, no pun intended. The massively overweight and balding Cluemaster from this show is a far cry from the fit, head of hair Arthur Brown from the comics.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Goes from a blonde to a redhead.
  • Basement-Dweller
  • Berserk Button: Getting a question wrong, being asked a question he doesn't know the answer and being forced to admit he doesn't know everything.
  • Child Prodigy
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He lost a game show for child geniuses when he was ten (which he claimed was rigged) and spent decades plotting revenge against the people he held responsible, becoming a morbidly obese Basement-Dweller in the process. Batman seriously called him out on this when he confronted him, but it went in one ear and out the other.
  • Evil Is Petty: Would rather waste his genius and talents which could have gotten him anywhere in life to set up an elaborate revenge against people who don't even remember who he is.
  • Fat Bastard
  • Insufferable Genius
  • It's All About Me: The only thing important to him is being the champion.
  • Never My Fault: Arthur refused to believe he lost the game show fairly and accused it of being rigged, even though he'd been winning for 12 weeks straight.
  • Psychopathic Manchild
  • Revenge: On the hosts and a competitor, believing that they rigged the show and cost him his title as champion.

Gearhead

Sinestro

Voiced by: Miguel Ferrer

D.A.V.E. (Digitally Enhanced Villain Emulator)

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

  • Brain Uploading: He's created from the duplicated mental patterns of the entire Batman Rogues Gallery.
    • Composite Character: He has the agility of the Joker and Catwoman, the Penguin's martial arts skills, and the Riddler's intelligence and deduction skills.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: He's designed to act like every great Batman villain, and is even able to figure out his secret identity.
  • The Dragon: To Hugo Strange, although he is unaware of this since he tends to act on his own accord.
  • Fun with Acronyms: His name.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: He may well be a deconstruction. He is a robot programmed by Dr. Hugo Strange with the memories and abilities of Batman's worst foes for the sole purpose of giving Batman a challenge. He proceeds to easily curbstomp Batman and steals ALL of Gotham's money just to commit the ultimate crime, but is defeated when Batman asks him to explain his origin story. Since D.A.V.E believed that he used to be a person, he basically went catatonic after realizing that he had no backstory of his own.
  • LEGO Genetics: He's made from the mental patterns of Batman's enemies.
  • Logic Bomb: What defeats him.
  • Shout-Out: His appearance and name are a reference to 2001.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: He doesn't actually know he's a robot.
  • Ultimate Lifeform: Calls himself "Gotham's Ultimate Criminal Mastermind". it's even the name of the episode he appears in.
