[[folder:The Bat Family]]

!! Bruce Wayne/The Batman
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/RinoRomano

--> ''"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 Wayne Industries, 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.

* ArtEvolution: Bruce is portrayed with a long, pointy chin in the first three seasons, contrasting from his usual LanternJawOfJustice. In season 4, he was given a more square jawline and the eye-slits in his cowl became smaller and more angular.
* BadassBaritone: While in his Batman guise.
* BadassNormal: A staple for any version of Batman. His strength, speed, stamina and pain tolerance borders on superhuman.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In the second part of "Batgirl Begins", at the hands of Poison Ivy.
* BruceWayneHeldHostage: TropeNamer.
* CoolCar: The Batmobile, as always, and he gets a second, even cooler one after the first was taken out by Gearhead.
* CrazyPrepared: A staple of Batman. He has ''chainsaw gauntlets'' for crying out loud.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He wears a dark costume, but is firmly on the side of good.
* DeadpanSnarker: You'd never believe it, but this Batman gives his fare share of one-liners. To the point where it almost becomes YouFightLikeACow. Almost. In "Topsy-Turvy", he and Joker even had a little SnarkToSnarkCombat.
* EasyAmnesia: Gets this in "A Dark Knight To Remember", after a rough battle with the Penguin makes him forget that he's the Batman.
* ExpressiveMask: His eye slits widen or narrow with emotion.
* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: Usually Batman understands his villains, but when he goes inside the Joker's mind, he is nearly driven insane.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: In the first two seasons, where the police consider him a VigilanteMan at best.
* {{Jetpack}}: Uses one as Batman to fight aerial villains like Firefly and Man-Bat.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: In "A Dark Knight To Remember", thanks to a bump to the head.
* MarriedToTheJob: Literally stated by Alfred in "Big Dummy" after Bruce is unable to make it to a date.
* NotAsYouKnowThem: In the Season 5 premiere, it's he, and ''not'' Superman, who's more willing to team-up.
* ParentalAbandonment: Yeah, okay, you all know what's coming. [[MemeticMutation HIS PARENTS ARE DEEAAAAAAAD!]] But worse, [[spoiler:his parents' killer was never brought to justice]].
* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob: Downplayed, as he's still involved with Wayne Industries and he does some aspects pretty seriously, such as working to have a dangerous toymaker fired. Though he's still seen as a dim party boy by the general public, which causes the Wayne Foundation to temporarily lose a contract to expand the children's hospital to rival GothCorp. He gets it back after it's revealed that [[spoiler:Firefly]] was working for GothCorp as a corporate saboteur .
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: While he's occasionally referred to as "the Batman" in other media, here he's called to as that almost exclusively when mentioned in the third person.
* ThouShaltNotKill: [[spoiler:Though this rule can be bent, like when he kills the undead Dracula or the robotic D.A.V.E.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: With each passing season. In the first season, he was still relativley inexperienced (though it was just three years and most of his prey were likely just common criminals and gang members.) With every new supervillain and such he comes across, Batman becomes stronger and fiercer.
* TheStoic: Comes with being Batman. However, this version of Batman is actually amongst the more emoting ones, and he also has a functional life as Bruce Wayne. Unlike most versions, where his "Bruce Wayne" persona is an act, this version is much more genuine.
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: From Lucius Fox.
* WouldHitAGirl: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6m9cL3Tsgk&feature=related You knew she was a plant, right?]]
* YoungerAndHipper: The show's incarnation of Batman was 26 when the show began and it shows through his early behaviors. In fact, the first episode has Alfred and Batman "celebrating" that it was now three years since Bruce took on the mantle. It sets the show apart and allows for Batman to further grow and evolve.

!! Alfred Pennyworth
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/AlastairDuncan
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.

* AgeLift: This version of Alfred appears to be middle-aged rather than elderly.
* CharacterDevelopment: In the early episodes, Alfred wasn't too happy with Bruce's work as the Batman, often suggesting he give it up. By the time of the season three episode "Gotham's Ultimate Criminal Mastermind", his opinion had changed considerably, to the point where he was willing to die rather then have Bruce's secret be revealed.
-->"Gotham needs the Batman more then you need a butler!"
* CoolOldGuy: In "Artifacts", though he does need a cane to get around with now.
* DeadpanSnarker: This ''is'' Alfred.
* HiddenDepths: He has a near-encyclopedic knowledge of television, which comes in handy when Batman has to take on the Cluemaster.
--> "I sometimes watch the telly when I'm dusting. I've done a lot of dusting over the years."
* TheJeeves: As usual.
* TheMedic: As usual. He is even able to help Bruce recover from multiple broken bones suffered from the hands of Bane.
* ParentalSubstitute: He raised Bruce after his parents died.
* SecretKeeper: One of the few people to know the Batman's identity.
* ServileSnarker: As always.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Batman. He might persuade his master to move on with his life, but he'll always help Bruce out, even if doing so will cost Alfred his life.
* WhileRomeBurns: In "The Joining, Part 2", he drinks some tea with Lucius Fox while the titular aliens destroy Gotham and ashes falls likes snow until he remembers telling Dick and Barbara to go behind Bruce's back and help him, anyway, and he and Lucius decide to try to help as well.

!! Barbara Gordon/Batgirl
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/DanielleJudovits, 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.

* AbledInTheAdaptation: Surprisingly averted. This is one of the few adaptations that show Oracle, and Oracle in a wheelchair at that.
* ActionGirl: Even before becoming Batgirl she was an accomplished gymnast who sought out action.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Barbara Gordon is typically blue-eyed, but here she has brown eyes. Her hair is also a different shade of red than the norm.
* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: One of the rare instances where Batgirl shows up before Robin, as well as being older than Robin.
* AgeLift: She's not so much younger than she's usually depicted, but she's depicted as being older than Dick Grayson. This makes her more in line with her pre-Crisis counterpart.
* AscendedFanGirl: Getting to meet the Batman, and becoming his sidekick.
* BrattyHalfPint: This Batgirl is overzealous and at times fails to realize just how dangerous fighting hardened super-powered criminals is, contrasting the serious, mature personality of most other versions.
* CompositeCharacter: She takes Harley Quinn's place is Poison Ivy's best friend in this continuity.
* CoolBigSis: When they're not bickering, she does act as a big sister to Robin and guides him using her one year head start of being a hero.
* DemotedToExtra: In seasons 4 and 5, Batgirl's appearances are sporadic, with Robin more frequently being Batman's only sidekick at any given time. Justified in the latter season, since she is in college now.
* ExpressiveMask: Much like Batman's, her eye holes widen and narrow with emotion.
* IconicSequelCharacter: Doesn't show up until season 3, but becomes a main character once she does.
* InsistentTerminology: In her origin episode, she tries to insist on being called "Batwoman", but finally gives up.
* TheLancer: She's light-hearted and cheeky to contrast Batman's serious demeanor.
* LittleMissSnarker: Again, usual for Batgirl.
* MissingMom: Like ''BTAS'', Barbara's mother is never seen nor mentioned.
* OlderThanTheyLook: While she doesn't look much older than 13 or 14 (and is [[TeensAreShort kind of on the short side]]), she's actually a college freshman by the fifth season, which would put her around 18 or 19.
* PluckyGirl: Self-described as Batman's "plucky sidekick".
* TagAlongKid: At first, before Batman accepts her as his sidekick.

!! Dick Grayson/Robin
--> '''Voiced by:''' Evan Sabara, Creator/JerryOConnell (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.

* AdaptationDyeJob: His eyes are green instead of blue.
* BrattyHalfPint: As usual for a young Robin.
* DeadpanSnarker: He rivals Alfred in this area, despite being a young boy.
* FutureBadass: As Nightwing, as seen in "Artifacts".
* KidSidekick: Again, a trait that most Robins have.
* KidHeroAllGrownUp: As Nightwing in "Artifacts".
* IconicSequelCharacter: Doesn't show up until season 4, but becomes the second main character once he does. His late appearance is actually due to a case of ExecutiveMeddling as ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' was using Robin at the time, and DC animated works only allowed one show to "hold dibs" on a character at a time.
* ParentalAbandonment: Just like in the comic, his parents are killed right before he becomes Robin.
* VocalEvolution: His voice dropped in the fifth season, due to puberty of the voice actor.

[[folder:Supporting Characters]]

!! Commissioner Jim Gordon
--> '''Voiced by:''' Mitch Pileggi
* AgeLift: Like Alfred, he appears to be a lot younger than he is usually depicted. The younger Gordon in ''Batman Begins'' might have inspired that.
* BadassMustache: As usual.
* TheCommissionerGordon: [[TropeNamers Obviously.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[http://www.toonzone.net/forums/showpost.php?p=1902711&postcount=58 According to]] [[WordOfGod Jeff Matsuda]], Gordon was the young officer seen in the flashback in "Traction."
* HollywoodOld: He barely looks any older in "Artifacts", which takes place twenty years into the future.
* OutOfFocus: Compared to most other Batman media, Gordon does very little in this series once introduced.
* ParentalObliviousness: The poor guy can never fully connect with his daughter due to clashing views, and 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?"
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Another given. Becoming commissioner allowed Batman to work with the law instead of against it.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Aside from the EarlyBirdCameo which some people might not have caught on to, 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''': Creator/MingNaWen
* AdaptationNameChange: To accomendate the RaceLift, "Yindel" is shortened to "Yin".
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: She's a younger and more attractive version of Ellen Yindel from ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'', with her name, her journey from distrusting and hunting Batman to trusting and helping him, and the fact that a mention in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture "Artifacts"]] had her replacing Gordon as Commissioner.
* ActionGirl: Moreso when she antagonized Batman. This is later downgraded in season two.
* BoundAndGagged: In "Strange Minds" and "Riddled".
* TheCommissionerGordon: Before [[TropeNamers Gordon himself]] appeared on the show, anyway, and while she was Batman's ally.
* TheChick: To Angel Rojas' Gotham PD.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Aside from a mention 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 tie-in comic "The Batman Strikes".
* DamselInDistress: 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.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In Season 2, she becomes an ally of Batman and far nicer to Bruce Wayne.
* DesignatedVictim: Moreso after the first season.
* EnemyMine: Pulls one with Batman to defeat Man-Bat, who had captured Ethan Bennett.
* {{Expy}}:
** While based on [[ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns Ellen Yindel]], this version is more or less the counterpart of Renee Montoya. Which is a bit funny because Renee Montoya originated in [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries B:TAS]] and became a CanonImmigrant.
** She also heavily resembles [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Elisa Maza]] transposed into the Batman universe. She even wears the same outfit. Interestingly, Creator/GregWeisman also wrote a handful of episodes for the series.
* FairCop: Yin is quite attractive for a police detective.
* FauxActionGirl: She spends most of her time being saved by Batman, one step behind Batman, or getting her hand held through mysteries by Batman. A borderline case, as she is competent when the writers realize they have no other choice other than solidifying her slide into full-on DamselInDistress. However, she is promptly PutOnABus at the end of the second season in favour of Commissioner Gordon (thanks to the Law of Conservation of Detail) and replaced by Gordon's daughter as the only female protagonist on the series. (She did get a ShoutOut in a season 4 episode, though she didn't actually appear; apparently twenty years down the road she becomes police commissioner of Gotham.)
* HeelFaceTurn: Comes to realize that the Batman is not a menace and becomes his ally in Season 2.
* InspectorJavert: In Season 1.
* {{Jerkass}}: Towards Bruce at first, until she informs Bruce that she knows he's not a stuck-up playboy after all.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She acts cold and dismissive in the first season but it is shown in the finale that she cares deeply for Ethan and admits that Gotham needs the Batman, becoming his ally in the process.
* NumberTwo: To Chief Rojas especially in the first season.
* RaceLift: Ellen Yindel was a redheaded white woman. This version is Asian-American.
* SecretKeeper: 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.
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Solidly Lawful in season 1, wanting to arrest Batman for being a vigilante. She's changed her mind.
* SexySoakedShirt: In the series premiere, she gets this scene by running in the rain and swimming across a river to get to Arkham Asylum.
* UnwillingSuspension: In "Riddled" to some extent.
* UngratefulBitch: She continues to act like [[{{Jerkass}} a jerk]] towards Batman after he rescues her a few times. This is later averted in season 2.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She abruptly disappears by the end of Season 2, and her fate is left in the dark.

!! Chief Angel Rojas
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/EdwardJamesOlmos ("The Bat in the Belfry"), Jesse Corti (all other appearances)
* AdaptationalVillainy: As an {{expy}} of Harvey Bullock, he lacks Bullock's more admirable qualities and even engaged in acts that Bullock, even when he's presented as a DirtyCop, would be appalled by.
* AssholeVictim: Almost. He was targeted by [[spoiler:a newly-transformed-into-Clayface Ethan Bennett after how badly he treated Bennett.]]
* BadBoss: Big time! He doesn't exactly treat a lot of his subordinates with any real respect. [[spoiler: His treatment of Ethan because he supported Batman played a big role in Ethan's breakdown (culminating in Ethan's suspension when Ethan revealed it was Batman who rescued him from the Joker), which in turn led to Rojas almost becoming an AssholeVictim. He also used Ellen as a hostage when he found out that she was working with Batman.]]
* CanonForeigner: Created for the show.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Disappeared after Season 2.
* DaChief: He's the chief of police.
* {{Expy}}: He's Harvey Bullock with a higher rank and no redeeming qualities. He's also [[RaceLift Hispanic]].
* FatBastard: A self-righteous fatass who sees his word as law.
* HateSink: Could it be more obvious that we aren't supposed to like Rojas?
* InspectorJavert: Towards the Batman.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Seriously, this fatass shouldn't even be in law enforcement due to his jerkassery and SkewedPriorities.
* {{Jerkass}}: As noted elsewhere, he's not really a good person towards everyone who disagrees with him.
* KickTheDog: His treatment of Ethan in the first season finale and of Yin in the second season finale.
* TheLeader: Of Gotham PD.
* PointyHairedBoss: 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. His lack of wits is highlighted at the end of "Riddled": Riddler tries to tell him that Yin is working with Batman, stating it as a ''very'' easy riddle which still leaves Rojas mystified and requiring Yin to explain it to him. Rojas then assumes that the Riddler has no idea what he's talking about.
* RaceLift: He's a Hispanic Harvey Bullock.
* SkewedPriorities: He prioritizes Batman's arrest rather than the criminals who are actually causing harm to the city.
* UngratefulBastard: Batman's saved Rojas and his officers quite a few times, yet he's still a jerk towards him.

!! Cash Tankinson
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/PatrickWarburton
* BasementDweller: He mentions living with his grandmother.
* CasanovaWannabe: Believes he can help Bruce Wayne be more successful with the ladies despite the fact that Bruce is a billionaire playboy and Cash is well, Cash.
* CowboyCop: Tries his best to be one.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's a jerk, but views Yin and Bruce as friends on some level he has trouble admitting.
* IWorkAlone: Says this [[HypocriticalHumor despite working with both Yin and Batman]].
* NonActionGuy: But he believes he's an ActionHero.
* SmallNameBigEgo: In spades.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It's not clear whether his last name is spelled "Tank'''i'''nson" or "Tank'''e'''nson"
* SunglassesAtNight: Rarely takes them off, earning him the nickname "Detective Shades" by Joker.
* TooDumbToLive: He tries to take on the Joker and fully believes the situation is completely under his control. Yeah.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Often speaks like this.

!! Lucius Fox
--> '''Voiced by''': Louis Gossett Jr.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: See "MythologyGag".
* MythologyGag: A big honking one to the ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy''[='=]s version of the character, being an old friend of Thomas Wayne, acting as Batman's armorer, knows Bruce is Batman, and is even modeled on Creator/MorganFreeman.
* RememberTheNewGuy: At least in regards to Batman and Alfred. Robin and Batgirl, not so much.
* SecretKeeper: For Bruce.
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: The answer to where Batman gets his gear.
* WhileRomeBurns: In "The Joining, Part 2", he drinks some tea with Alfred while the titular aliens destroy Gotham and ashes falls likes snow until Alfred remembers telling Dick and Barbara to go behind Bruce's back and help him, anyway, and he and Alfred decide to try to help as well.

!! Mayor Marion Grange
--> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/AdamWest

* AdamWesting: He was voiced by the trope namer, after all.
* TheChewToy: The Joker kidnapped him once and targeted his wife while pretending to be Batman, and his reelection saw Maxie Zeus try to take over the city after losing to Grange.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Despite winning a re-election bid in Season 3, he's not seen in Season 4 and in the Season 5 premiere, he's replaced by Hamilton Hill.[[note]]The comics character was killed in the lead-up to ''ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand'', but there's no sign of what happened to the character here[[/note]]
* GenderFlip: The character is a woman in the comics, hence the GenderBlenderName.

[[folder:The Justice League]]

!! Clark Kent/Superman
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/GeorgeNewbern

* BroughtDownToNormal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
* TheCape: TropeNamer.
* ClarkKenting: Well, [[TropeNamer duh]].
* FlyingBrick: Of course.
* HumanAlien: Nautrally.
* IntrepidReporter: In true form, he's a reporter.
* NotAsYouKnowThem: In the Season 5 premiere, it's he, and ''not'' Batman, who's more reluctant to team-up.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When he's using his heat vision. [[spoiler: Under mind control spores laced with Kryptonite, it's more like Green Eyes Take Warning.]]
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* SuperStrength: This is true.

!! Barry Allen/The Flash
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/CharlieSchlatter

* :BroughtDownToNormal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
* BigEater: Hey, running that fast requires a high metabolism
* CompositeCharacter: [[http://www.toonzone.net/news/articles/18297/tz--sdcc-wb-animation-showcases-the-batman-and-legion-of-superheroes According to]] [[WordOfGod Alan Burnett]], he's Barry Allen. That said, he does have a personality more akin to Wally West or Bart Allen.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He was only called "Flash" in his appearances and his real name was revealed in a news article about the show.
* PersonalityPowers: Played straight, given his personality is more like Wally West or Bart Allen than the comics' version of Barry Allen.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.
* SuperSpeed: Naturally.

!! Hal Jordan/Green Lantern
--> '''Voiced by''': Dermot Mulroney

* ArchEnemy: His is Sinestro.
* BroughtDownToNormal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
* ColorCharacter: '''Green''' Lantern.
* GreenLanternRing: TropeNamer.
* HeroicWillpower: As usual.
* SpacePolice: Of course.
* WeaksauceWeakness: His ring has problems with the color yellow, something both Sinestro and the Joining exploit. [[spoiler:Batman has backup plans in case the Justice League go rogue and Batman also would have no problem exploiting this weakness. It ends up helping beat the Joining, when they steal the Justice League's powers.]]

!! J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter
--> '''Voiced by''': Dorian Harewood

* BroughtDownToNormal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
* BaldOfAwesome: Of course.
* ComboPlatterPowers: In addition to the normal set of flight, shapeshifting, telepathy, super strength and speed, and intangibility/nigh invulnerability, this incarnation also has telekinesis
* LastOfHisKind: It's generally believed that the Joining killed the rest of the Martians in this continuity.
* MindOverMatter: This version of J'onn has telekinesis.
* WeaksauceWeakness: 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

* BadassBeard: Of course.
* BadassNormal: As tradition.
* ColorCharacter: '''Green''' Arrow.
* FollowTheLeader: An InvokedTrope during the first time he teams up with Batman. Ollie mentions being inspired by Bruce's stuff at the end of the adventure. His appearance in the finale has him using the Arrowplane.
* TrickArrow: As usual.

!! Katar Hol/Hawkman
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RobertPatrick

* BroughtDownToNormal: By Hugo Strange and The Joining in "Lost Heroes". Fortunately, it is only temporary.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: 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 confirm he's Katar Hol.
* SpacePolice: As usual.

[[folder:The Rogues Gallery]]

!! [[ComicBook/TheJoker Joker]]
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson (English)
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RubenLeon (Latin America)


-->''"All it takes is one rotten day to transform a normal man into a monster! Well, in my case, a rotten day and a chemical bath."''

* AdaptationalBadass: 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 progresses, and this was actually a very [[BrokenBase contentious]] depiction.
* AdaptationalNiceGuy: In keeping with this version being more [[AffablyEvil affable]] than most, the Joker's abusive traits are toned down considerably. He still lashes out at Harley Quinn when sufficiently agitated, though, and doesn't bother helping her when she's trapped in a burning building.
* ArchEnemy: To Batman. Joker even refers to them as being "two sides of the same coin".
* ArtEvolution: Aside from the tie-dyed straitjacket being swapped out for his trademark purple and orange suit, "Topsy-Turvy" adds black rings around Joker's eyes, his lips are a darker shade of red, his teeth are more 3-D looking and his hair animations are noticeably less fluid.
* AssholeVictim: As with Rojas, he almost became one. [[spoiler:And by the same person (Ethan Bennett/Clayface I), no less. And like Rojas, he deserved Ethan's enmity towards him, being the one who more or less made him Clayface.]]
* AxCrazy: 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 ForTheEvulz.
* BadBoss: Doesn't really treat Punch and Judy, his two most recurring henchmen, that nicely and leaves them to get arrested so he won't miss his favorite TV show.
* BerserkButton: Never try to terrorize or rule over Gotham while he's around. Only '''''he's''''' allowed to do that.
** The same goes for trying to destroy Batman. As far as he's concerned, [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou that honor goes to him and]] ''[[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou him alone!]]'' [[spoiler:Wrath and Scorn learned this the hard way...]]
* BigBad: The closest this series gets to one, as he's the most reoccurring villain and is responsible for several major events like the creation of Clayface.
* TheCorrupter: He functions as this to Harley Quinn, and also to [[spoiler:Ethan Bennett as part of the MindRape that turns him into Clayface]] and then to [[spoiler:Basil Karlo when the Joker leads Karlo to realize that he still has the powers he gained as the second Clayface]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: As part of his feral characterization, he really doesn't like it. Even in later appearances where he starts acting more like his [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries prior cartoon depiction]], he still doesn't usually wear shoes.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: 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.
* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: Promotional materials and the first episode had him in a stylized straitjacket. Later episodes instead use his trademark tuxedo. He wears the straitjacket one more time in "Meltdown".
* ElectricJoybuzzer [[spoiler:Accidentally kills himself with one. [[NotQuiteDead Well, almost]].]]
* EvilLaugh: Perhaps one of the most distinctive ones yet.
* EvilSoundsDeep: This Joker has a considerably lower voice than most versions, due to being voiced by Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson. It gets even deeper when he uses Bane's Venom in "Brawn".
* EvilVersusOblivion: In "The Joining Part 2", he and the other Gotham villains join forces with the police to defend Gotham from the alien invasion, with the Joker declaring [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou terrorizing Gotham was his job]].
* ExtendoBoxingGlove: The show adds one of these to Joker's [[DeathDealer usual]] [[ElectricJoybuzzer array]] [[DeadlyGas of weapons]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: No matter how affable he can sometimes feign being, he's truly an evil man.
* FightingClown: 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.
* ForTheEvulz: Everything he does is solely for his own sadistic amusement.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: We don't get the full story, but in this version Joker [[spoiler: was apparently a boring office drone who dreamed of making people laugh.]]
* HandyFeet: This is why he doesn't like to wear shoes; he's very good at using his feet as makeshift hands.
* TheHyena: Always laughing at something. Guy once tried to get a couple of Hyenas as pets, as a matter of fact.
* ImprobableHairstyle: His flocked, almost dreadlock-styled wild hair, seemingly fashioned to resemble a jester hat.
* InstitutionalApparel: Sports a yellow and purple straitjacket in his first few appearances and "Meltdown".
* KnightTemplar: At one point he decides to impersonate Batman and mock his methods. Though the crimes his victims commit are minor such as speeding, his methods are anything but.
* LackOfEmpathy: As usual for the Joker.
* LargeHam: As usual.
* LaughingMad: Well he is the Joker after all.
* LawfulStupid: During his attempt to become Batman, in which he hounds a jaywalker, a grandmother who accidentally left a turn signal on for three blocks, three cops who were driving above the speed limit during a car chase, a lady who brought eleven items to a ten-item checkout lane, and two girls making "graffiti" while playing with sidewalk chalk.
* LightningBruiser: Very fast, very agile, and very good at hitting people.
* ManiacMonkeys: 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 PrimalStance. He's very reminiscent of a crazy Literature/{{Tarzan}} in clown makeup.
* MadArtist: 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 wears a beret during the process!
* MindRape: Does this to an already under stress [[spoiler:Ethan Bennett]].
* MonsterClown: Arguably more monster than clown, with his very "feral" portrayal -- PrimalStance, ape-like fighting style, perpetually bare and ambidextrous feet -- though this turned a lot of fans of the older series off of him.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Toward Batman; to the point [[spoiler:[[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork he personally takes care of Wrath and Scorn so they won't "take away the fun" by revealing Batman's identity.]]]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: He sports them, and they only add to his maniacal nature.
* TheRival: To Penguin, as they constantly feud over who is Gotham's number one baddie.
* ScaryTeeth: They're ''jigsaw-shaped'', visibly slotting together. Not conventionally scary, but the effect is quite disturbing.
* SlasherSmile: He wouldn't be Joker without this.
* TheSociopath: This version of the Joker does not play coy, blatantly attacking whoever he can and will, subtlety be damned.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Averted. Unlike most versions, he's usually just called "Joker".
* WouldHurtAChild: Tried to dump Prank, his would-be KidSidekick, into the vat of chemicals that created him, fully aware that even he didn't know what would happen to the kid.
** While masquerading as Batman, he also tries to use Joker gas on two ''elementary school-aged girls'' because they drew on the sidewalk. Batman stops him though.

!! Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/TomKenny
* {{Acrofatic}}: He TookALevelInBadass compared to his other incarnations; this was downplayed in later episodes due to the controversy this caused. It was based on asian films where various heavy characters can pull similar feats.
* AdaptationalBadass: Much more adept in hand-to-hand combat than his other incarnations.
* AdaptationalComicRelief: Yet, at the same time, he gives off a HarmlessVillain impression far more often than other versions. More than once, his schemes only work out of coincidence (the sonic device happens to work on Man-Bat; stumbling upon Green Lantern's ring, etc.)
* AdaptationalJerkass: Much ruder and cruder than the more [[AffablyEvil gentlemanly]] comics incarnation. This Penguin is also insane and imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, while comics Penguin is perfectly sane.
* AdaptationalUgliness: While the Penguin was never good-looking in the comics, this one shares his ''Film/BatmanReturns'' counterpart's deformities and even has jagged teeth.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In addition to being a bigger asshole than his comics counterpart, he's also a bigger bastard. While comics Penguin is generally the OnlySaneMan of Batman's RoguesGallery, this version of the character is notably depraved and awful, sinking to similar depths of horrendousness to those plunged by many of his fellow villains. Notably, comics!Penguin is nearly always sent to Blackgate Penitentiary when he's in custody, but this incarnation gets sent to Arkham Asylum.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Unlike most versions, here he has red hair as opposed to black.
* AlwaysSecondBest: To Joker, much to Penguin's chagrin.
* TheBeastmaster: Like several other portrayals, he commands a huge amount of trained birds that apparently have a taste for human flesh.
* ButtMonkey: He seems to be the Butt Monkey of almost every episode he's ever made an apearence in, no matter how short it was. He was the movie's Butt Monkey! Though oddly enough, he ''wasn't'' one in "Team Penguin", simply because [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Killer Moth was.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Of different incarnations and adaptations himself. For example, he has penguin-like features such as a beak-like nose and flipper-likes hands like his incarnation in ''Film/BatmanReturns'' and a laugh similar to Burgess Meredith's portrayal in [[Series/{{Batman}} the 1960's live-action Batman series]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: He seems [[AxCrazy just as insane]] as the rest of the villains, unlike most incarnations, where he's often the OnlySaneMan among them.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He considers not interfering with his villain comrads' plan an elementary rule of courtesy.
* EvilCounterpart: Of Bruce Wayne.
* EvilLaugh: Creator/TomKenny himself admitted that it was a bit of a ShoutOut to the Burgess Meredith version.
* EvilRedhead: Unlike the comics, where he usually sports black hair.
* FatBastard: No surprise there, and he doesn't even pretend to be anything else.
* HighClassGlass: Fitting for his upper-class roots and aspirations to regain his family's wealth.
* ImpoverishedPatrician: The Cobblepot family used to be wealthy and powerful, but the family fortune has long since been squandered, which is what motivates him to take up crime.
* InTheBlood: According to Alfred, his grandfather was employed by a Cobblepot who [[BadBoss treated him badly]]. Also, one episode features an attempt to retrieve a treasure stolen by a 19th century Cobblepot. Apparently, boorishnesss and criminality run in the family.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: As usual, though his [[{{Jerkass}} general obnoxiousness]] makes him less sympathetic than most versions of the character.
* {{Jerkass}}: In sharp contrast to the [[AffablyEvil polished manners]] of most other versions of the character, this Penguin is rude, crude, and thoroughly obnoxious.
* LightningBruiser: Unlike other versions.
* NiceHat: It's almost as tall as he is!
* ParasolOfPain: As usual.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Still short in stature as his usual incarnations, but extremely combat savvy.
* PungeonMaster: Prone to making puns.
* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob: Well, unless you call a life of crime a job.
* TheRival: To Joker, perhaps more than any other version.
* ScaryTeeth: His teeth are often depicted as curved and sharp, ''especially'' in the show's opening sequence.
* SinisterSchnoz: As most other versions.
* SmarterThanYouLook: He's not as stupid as Catwoman thought. He even once managed to defeat Batman!
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Averted, much like Joker.

!! Selina Kyle/Catwoman
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/GinaGershon
* AdaptationDyeJob: Catwoman is usually depicted with green eyes, but here they are blue.
* AntiVillain: She only steals due to the adrenaline, and usually only from other criminals.
* BadassNormal: She has no powers.
* BerserkButton: Someone getting in her way, more so if you're intervening in her heists. Ragdoll will vouch for that. Also, don't threaten any feline creature. She doesn't like that.
* CatGirl: Naturally.
* ClassyCatBurglar: This is Catwoman, after all.
* CompressedHair: She has very long, thick black hair that somehow fits under that Cat-cowl of hers.
* DarkActionGirl: And a ''damn'' good one, being able to equal Batman in combat ''and'' she knocks him out at one point. If that's not impressive, how about her ''stealing his utility belt'' and almost killing him with the Batbot (by accident as the reason she stole his belt was because she wanted to use his Remote-Controlled Batarang to steal Hideo Katsu's lion statue and ended up activating the Batbot while trying to work the RC Batarang).
* DatingCatwoman: [[TropeNamers As always.]] She and Bruce have an actual date in "Ragdolls to Riches", but neither figure out the other's identity.
* EnemyMine: She plays this well, especially in ''The Cat, The Bat, and the Very Ugly''. That, or it's her typical HeelFaceRevolvingDoor.
* [[FriendToAllLivingThings Friend to All Living Cats]]: Per usual.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: As usual, she will alternate between being an ally and enemy of Batman, most times even within the same episode.
* KarmaHoudini: She's the only one of Batman's rogues who never faces any consequences from her crimes and always gets away.
* KindheartedCatLover: Of course.
* SpyCatsuit: Naturally.
* WhipItGood: Just wouldn't feel ''right'' without it.

!! Edward Nigma/The Riddler
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RobertEnglund
* AbusiveParents: It's implied that his father was this to him.
* AdaptationalBadass: By his appearance in "Riddler's Revenge", he can actually last more than a few seconds in an outright brawl with Batman, which is more than most other incarnations of Riddler can say for themselves. He is also arguably more competent and definitely more serious than most other versions of the character.
* BatmanGambit: In his debut episode, he set [[spoiler:fake]] bombs all over the city that could only be deactivated by solving various puzzles. [[spoiler: This was actually a diversion made so that he could break into the City Hall database undetected and steal important information. He almost got away with it too.]]
* BerserkButton: Being called 'champ'. That's what his {{Jerkass}} dad called him when he was growing up.
* TheChessmaster: As usual.
* ColdHam: While other Riddlers' are usually [[LargeHam blatantly of the top and full of themselves]], this Riddler is more cold, calculating and cerebral. However, he is still melodramatic and convinced he is smarter than everyone.
* CombatPragmatist: He shocks Batman with an electric cable and uses his {{Mooks}} to distract him.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: He looks an awful lot like Music/MarilynManson, [[InkSuitActor which makes sense]] [[JustifiedTrope because]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Manson was originally contracted to voice him]].
* CriminalMindGames: His hobby
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Deconstructed, much like his ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' counterpart.
* FauxAffablyEvil: A staple of the Riddler.
* {{Goth}}: His appearance.
* LeanAndMean: Of course.
* ManipulativeBastard
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Riddler ''really'' resembles Marilyn Manson.
* RiddleMeThis: As usual.
* TattooedCrook: Well, he is a villain, and the lines from his lips to his jaw are tattoos.
* TooCleverByHalf: He's a great schemer, but in each episode he appears in, he ends up [[VillainousBreakdown throwing a psychotic fit]] when his plans backfire.
** In his first encounter with Batman, his scheme to discover his secret identity would have actually gone off smoothly and without a hitch... had he put a gag on Detective Yin. By the time it occurs to him to try, she'd distracted him enough for the Batman to foil him.
* TragicVillain: Edward and his associate built a revolutionizing device that would expand the capacity of the mind, only to have a jerkass financier sabotage it's public demonstration, which got him expelled from the scientific community. [[spoiler:It got worse when it turned out that it was his trusted associate that was the true saboteur.]]

!! Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy
--> '''Voiced by''': Piera Coppola
* AdaptationOriginConnection: She's introduced as being Barbara Gordon's best friend before transforming into Poison Ivy.
* AgeLift: Usually around Batman's age, while here she's Batgirl's age when introduced.
* AntiVillain: Type III, much more so in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman Strikes'' comic series.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Can inflict this on others, even [[spoiler:Batman and Superman; though both cases were temporary and in Superman's case, Kryptonite was needed and Lex Luthor was using her.]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Is barefoot as Poison Ivy, thought this is due to her GardenGarment mutation.
* EvilFormerFriend: To Barbara Gordon.
* EvilRedhead: Even before becoming Poison Ivy.
* GardenGarment: After her mutation, she grew some clothes made from plant matter.
* GreenThumb: Of course.
* ShesAllGrownUp: In ''The Batman Strikes'', her body is drawn in a more adult way, showing that she's finally growing into the full-fledged seductress she's known as in other continuities.
* HiddenDepths: She seems to still want to be friends with Barbara Gordon. In "Batgirl Begins, Part 2", she wants her to [[WeCanRuleTogether join on her mission to save the plants of the world]].
* ImprobableHairstyle: Her hair is fashioned to resemble a rosebud.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: 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.
* NotAsYouKnowThem: The tie-in comic gives her her usual team-up with Harley Quinn, 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 daffy hedonist - is a bit more independent and cunning than usual.
* UngratefulBitch: 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, calling her a goody-good like her dad, 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. Yet, after becoming Poison Ivy, she visits Barbara and expects her to join her. She later tries to kill her dad. And in a later episode, she sends her a mind-controlling plant.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Again, made more apparent in ''The Batman Strikes''.
** Also apparent in "Fleurs De Mal".
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Pam wasn't all right in the head as a normal human, but she ''really'' lost it when she became Poison Ivy.
* YoungerAndHipper: She is around Batgirl's age in this version.

!! Hugo Strange
--> '''Voiced by''': Frank Gorshin (first three appearances), Richard Green ("Gotham's Ultimate Criminal Mastermind" and onward)
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler:He wanted all the knowledge of the universe for helping the Joining. He got it and became catatonic because they telepathically broadcasted it into his mind.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: He becomes a villain over the course of several episodes -- when he first appears, he's just a seemingly mundane, even helpful, shrink who vouches for Ethan Bennett's sanity in court. During his next appearances, it becomes increasingly apparent that he's severely lacking in empathy.
* ChekhovsGunman: Makes his first, brief appearance in "Meltdown" and goes on to become ''much'' more important than that scene let on.
* TheChessmaster: Has on a number of occasions manipulated others like puppets. Most prominently in "Strange New World" where he exposes Batman to a hallucinogen and manipulates him into thinking he developed a poison that caused a ZombieApocalypse, and very nearly made Batman release the real poison.
* CompositeCharacter: While he soon became the MadScientist of the comics, he initially came off as the [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate morally ambiguous head of Arkham Asylum]] who's obsessed with the insanity of Batman's villains (and Batman himself) like Dr. Jeremiah Arkham. [[spoiler: His role in "Strange New World" was also originally meant for the Scarecrow, though it should be noted that Strange in the comics used fear-inducing toxins long before Scarecrow was introduced, making his role in that episode still true to the original character.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Effectively by his own admission in "Rumors", when he asks if their captor will satisfy "an old man's curiosity" before he and the other gathered rogues get collectively sent to "that great Arkham Asylum in the sky".
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's puts on an air friendliness and politeness to his enemies.
* MadDoctor: He uses Arkham as his cover to conduct unethical experiments.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler: For D.A.V.E.]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Of course.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Later on, anyway. In his earlier episodes, he's always referred to as ''Professor'' Strange. Later, the show switches to calling him doctor for seemingly no reason.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He's introduced simply as a psychologist, but he takes on various other fields of expertise throughout the series, including building a sentient robot, brewing a hallucinatory fear toxin and communicating with an alien species.
* PsychoPsychologist: To the point of curing Arnold Wesker of his insanity... then ruining his life to drive him insane again, because it seemed interesting to do.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: As usual.
* TheShrink: As usual.

!! Killer Croc
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RonPerlman
* AdaptationalIntelligence: While most incarnations of Killer Croc aren't exactly known for their smarts, this guy is a ''bona fide'' GeniusBruiser.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]. He's part reptile, so he wouldn't have external genitalia.
* BeastAndBeauty: 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. [[spoiler:In the end, it turns out she rather likes him, too, and he gives himself up to the police for her.]]
* BeastMan: Possibly Croc's most beastlike incarnation to date (aside from perhaps the ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamSeries''). Thankfully, the writers didn't claim that he had a "skin condition" this time.
* CurbStompBattle: His first battle with Batman does not go well for the vigilante, with Croc absolutely manhandling him. Batman performs better later in the episode, though he still can't match Croc head on.
* {{Expy}}: Of Leatherhead from the original [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]] cartoon. While Killer Croc was created before Leatherhead, he's not a Cajun in the comic books.
* GeniusBruiser: Especially when compared with his DumbMuscle portrayal in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' and even later portrayals, such as the ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamSeries''.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: All he wears is a vest.
* KillEmAll: 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|s}} for each and every one of them.
* MultipleChoicePast: 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. However, if the tie-in comic, ''The Batman Strikes'' counts as AllThereInTheManual, 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.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: Though the cause his unknown and disputed.
* RaginCajun: Has a cajun accent.

!! Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/ClancyBrown
* AdaptationalBadass: This version of Freeze pretty consistently overpowers Batman.
* AdaptationalJerkass: Unlike the version of [[AntiVillain the character]] from the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries previous]] series that [[RetCanon retroactively became the comic character]], this version of the character lacks any sort of sympathetic backstory or motive and is essentially just a petty criminal that accidentally got superpowers. Though it does show a photo of him with a woman in his origin flashback, so it's possible that Nora might have been a part of his criminal activities after all.
* AnIcePerson: Unlike other versions, though, he doesn't need a gun and shoots ice blasts from his bare hands.
* BodyHorror: Just look at him without his suit in "Artifacts". He's emaciated and, like in the DCAU, his body is slowly withering away and he uses spider like legs to walk.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Freeze was originally a small-time diamond thief, until an accident during a car chase with Batman led to him getting his powers.
* CreepyMonotone: As usual.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Upon running into the homeless man who disrupted his escape so many years ago (thus setting off the chain of events leading to his immersion in the cryogenic chemicals), he goes out of his way to flash-freeze the man.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He is voiced by Creator/ClancyBrown, after all.
* HumanPopsicle: Does this to himself in "Artifacts" to escape Batman once and for all. [[spoiler:Batman's CrazyPrepared methods enable people more than a thousand years in the future to still beat him.]]
* FreezeRay: As usual, though this version has it as a super power.
* NeverMyFault: He "thanks" Batman for causing the accident that made him a metahuman and for all of the crimes he commits with his powers. At first, Bruce actually believes he's right, before confronting him and telling him he did this to himself.
* PungeonMaster: Every other line out of his mouth includes ice puns. However, unlike the [[Film/BatmanAndRobin previous ice-pun-quipping]] [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger version of Freeze]], this version actually manages to make them sound... [[JustForPun chilling]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning: He has red eyes.

!! Ethan Bennett/Clayface I
--> '''Voiced by''': Steve Harris
[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Ethan as Clayface]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clayface_ethan_bennett.jpg]][[/labelnote]]
* AdaptationDistillation: Clayface was a sympathetic character in WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries. Here, he's an outright tragic figure.
* AdaptationalHeroism: This Clayface started off as a supporting protagonist, being a cop and the best friend of Bruce Wayne. His transformation into Clayface is very tragic and at first he didn't have any evil intent other than his distressed attempts at repairing his life. [[spoiler: His final appearance has him teaming up with Batman and Robin to take down the second Clayface]].
* AntiVillain: A definite Type II.
* TheAtoner: For his rampages as Clayface.
* BaldOfAwesome: Though BaldOfEvil as Clayface.
* BlackBestFriend: To Bruce and Ellen.
* ButNotTooBlack: While he's pretty dark-skinned, Ethan has blue eyes, indicating that he's part Caucasian.
* CanonForeigner: Ethan wasn't in the comics.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Both a good and bad thing for him - on the one hand, it made him a valuable ally to Batman after becoming Clayface. On the other hand, once he gets his abilities, his habit of taking heroing into his own hands becomes twisted and ends up making things worse for him. But on the other other hand, his going out of his way to take in both Joker and [[spoiler: Basil Karlo]] in his final appearance went a long way towards his reformation.
* CompositeCharacter: His personality/arc has more in common with Two-Face than most Clayfaces. He also resembles Crispus Allen.
* DeadpanSnarker: Prone to making snide remarks, usually only reserved for Yin, but started spouting them at other after becoming Clayface.
* DestinedBystander: [[spoiler:Ethan Bennett was a cop and a friend of Bruce's who appeared throughout Season One before becoming Clayface.]]
* DrivenToVillainy: He got better.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Clayfaces'' he's been cured of his mutation, has reconnected with Bruce and knows that while he has a lot to make up for, he's finally come to terms with himself as Ethan Bennett once more. In ''Artifacts'' it's revealed that he re-joined the police force after being released and eventually became the new chief in 2027]].
* ElementalShapeshifter: 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.
* EnemyMine: 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.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Not as Ethan himself or even as Clayface, but [[spoiler:when he impersonated Solomon Grundy, his time disguised as Grundy has him voiced by Creator/KevinGrevioux. [[BassoProfundo Yes,]] ''[[Film/{{Underworld}} that]]'' [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice one]].]]
* {{Expy}}:
** Is more or less the counterpart of Crispus Allen. And personality-wise he ''is'' Harvey Dent[=/=]Two-Face. From the long friendship with Bruce right down to calling Batman "Bats," a la Harvey from ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween''. Justified, since Two-Face could not be used due to his appearance in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', so Ethan was likely meant to be a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute.
* EyeColorChange: His eye color switches from blue to green after he becomes Clayface.
* FallenHero: He's a former cop.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: 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, [[spoiler:then in Season 4 ended up back of the Face side and stays there.]]
* HowDoIShotWeb: At first: it doesn't take long for him to get dangerously good with his powers.
* InkSuitActor: Ethan is pretty much just a thinner, blue-eyed version of his voice actor, Steve Harris.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Happens to him quite a bit, because he constantly ignores the fact that his powers make him crazy. This happens in his first appearances as Clayface, but it's especially pronounced in ''Meltdown,'' where as he uses his powers throughout the episode he jumps from wanting to capture Joker to make sure he can't hurt anyone else, to wanting to kill Joker out of revenge for what he did to him, to [[spoiler: wanting to kill ''Batman'' because he's the only one who could bust him for trying to kill Joker, to deciding to become a full-on supervillain at Joker's suggestion because he's already trying to kill Batman anyway. By the end of it he's stealing art and ranting about "mashing anyone who gets in his way"]]. [[spoiler: Fortunately, his final appearance shows that he's gotten a better handle on it to the point where he mostly manages to remain himself even after using extensive use of his powers, though his sudden lashing out when presented with the antidote still shows that he doesn't quite have it completely under control]].
* KnightOfCerebus: As Clayface.
* MindRape: [[spoiler:Ethan suffers this at the hands of the Joker.]]
* ReformedButRejected: By everyone who didn't know him personally and by Rojas. Though considering that Rojas was a {{Jerkass}} [[KickTheDog who had a hand in his fall]]. [[spoiler: Downplayed later on where he manages to reform for good and while Bruce is clearly eager have his old friend back, he's hesitant to fully trust Ethan until he's fully cured]].
* ScoobyDooHoax: [[spoiler: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 RealAfterAll.]]
* ThatManIsDead: [[spoiler: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 HeelFaceTurn later anyway.]]
* TokenGoodTeammate: Before his FaceHeelTurn, 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.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler: Ethan's powers explicitly affect his mind the more he uses them, making him unstable, violent and (in the tie-in comics) even delusional - but they are also highly addictive and difficult to stop using after he starts: hence Bruce's insistence that he has to be ''cured,'' not just rehabilitated. ''Meltdown'' treats them as almost being like a drug.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler: His world is destroyed in the span of a single episode when the Joker kidnaps and tortures him, and he's exposed to some chemicals. He's suspended because he gives proper credit to Batman for his rescue instead of letting Rojas take it for himself, then discovers the chemicals have horribly mutated him. His first attempt at reformation also failed because of the stress of dealing with dealing who viewed him differently.]]
* TheWorfEffect: While he initially holds his own against the new Clayface, once Basil reveals the full extent of his shape shifting he overpowers Ethan without much difficulty.

!! Basil Karlo/Clayface II
--> '''Voiced by''': Wallace Langham ("Clayfaces"), Lex Lang ("The Batman/Superman Story")
* AdaptationalJerkass: The original Basil Karlo was an actor who was driven insane when a remake of a movie he did was being made without him being in the role, so he donned the identity of the killer he played in the film, Clayface, to murder the cast. Here, Basil Karlo became a villain because he wanted fame.
* AttentionWhore: 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.
* BadBadActing: He wasn't a good actor before he became Clayface and he still sucks at it when he gets his powers.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: 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.
* DecompositeCharacter: While he is a Clayface, in the comics, he's the original one, a role taken by Ethan Bennett here.
* ElementalShapeshifter: The same as the original Clayface though noticeably more powerful, able to create more sophisticated tools out of his body and even grow to the size of a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever small building]].
* EvilCounterpart: To Ethan.
* LegacyCharacter: Which is ironic, considering that the Karlo of the comics was the progenitor of the identity.
* LargeHam: Considered one in-universe, complete having starred in a StylisticSuck B-Movie Parody in which he hams like you wouldn't believe. Becoming Clayface only made it worse, really.
* PaperThinDisguise: Karlo's acting is so bad, that even with his shape-shifting anyone can see through his disguise just by hearing him speak.
* SuperiorSuccessor: More powerful than Ethan Bennett, attributed in-universe to his taking a larger dose of mutagen.
--> '''Clayface II''': [[BadassBoast This Clayface sequel is bigger and better than the original!]]

!! Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/HyndenWalch
* AdaptationDistillation: Came through with very few changes thanks in part to her introduction episode being written by Creator/PaulDini.
* AdaptationalJerkass: Most versions started as an {{Adorkable}}, shy psychologist who mostly [[SextraCredit slept her way through school.]] This version is already a stuck-up bitch with several loose screws, and it doesn't take much for the Joker to drive her over the edge. She also [[KickTheDog poisons a group of squirrels,]] which is something that comics Harley would never do.
* AxCrazy: Moreso than other versions. This one also murders civilians for not liking her show.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Yet another blonde Harley.
* BerserkButton: 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.
* BrooklynRage: She sports her usual Brooklyn accent and can be very aggressive.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: She certainly sounds a lot like Creator/ArleenSorkin.
* DarkMistress: For the Joker.
* DumbBlonde: 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.
* GenkiGirl: Though less humorous than in ''Batman: TAS'' and more dangerously psychotic like in the comics.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: 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.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Her screws were already loose to being with, but the Joker gives her the final push she needs.
* MadLove: Naturally, though it's played a little differently​ 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 ExtremeDoormat personality.
* MostCommonSuperpower: ''Very'' noticeable pre-villainy.
* NeverMyFault: She's fired for the following: telling a girl to go behind her mother's back to date a boy she wasn't allowed to see, ignoring the network's executives concerns and harassing​ Bruce Wayne with a jilted-ex when he was promised that he'd be talking about a charity drive. To her, they just can't see past her "playful exterior".
* NotAsYouKnowThem: 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 daffy hedonist - is a bit more independent and cunning than usual.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: As always.
* SheFu: As usual.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Her real name is Harleen Quinzel.
* UnholyMatrimony: With the Joker.
* VillainousHarlequin: Naturally.

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JoaquimDeAlmeida (in "Traction"), Creator/RonPerlman (in "Team Penguin"), Creator/ClancyBrown (did Bane's grunts in "The Batman/Superman Story")
* AchillesHeel: Electricity, as applied to his Venom tubes.
* AdaptationalBadass: In the comics, Venom granted one enhanced strength along with some noticeable muscle growth. Here, Venom practically turns Bane into the [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]].
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Venom turns his skin red, though it oddly doesn't do that to Joker when he uses it in "Brawn".
* BadassBoast: "I am Bane. The last opponent you will ever face."
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He's strong enough to rip apart an armored car with his bare hands '''without Venom'''!
* CurbStompBattle: Does this to Batman, though for different reasons than in ''Knightfall''. Mostly the fact that using [[SuperSerum Venom]] turns Bane into a [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]-like figure in this incarnation and that his debut was in the second episode of the whole series meant he was going up against a Batman still getting used to fighting supervillains and whose only prior experience at that point was the Joker.
* EvilSoundsDeep: A staple for Bane, and it gets deeper once the Venom kicks in.
* {{Jobber}}: After his first appearance, Bane was taken down usually by someone [[ShockAndAwe zapping his venom tubes with a jolt of electricity]] seconds into the fight.
* TheJuggernaut: He literally gets referred to as one in his debut.
* SuperSerum: Venom, the source of his powers, though the serum is never referred to by name in the series. It is, however, called "Venom" by Alfred in the "Junior Detective challenge" extra on the DVD of Season 1.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: In addition to turning his skin red, Venom also causes his eyes to turn yellow.
* TopHeavyGuy: He has ridiculously short legs when on Venom.
* VillainDecay: When Bane first appeared in "Traction" he was TheJuggernaut, and he demolished Batman almost as badly as he did in the comics. Batman was beaten so badly he needed a giant robot suit to fight him next time. He's then reduced to a {{Jobber}} in every other appearance, (Robin took him down in a few seconds with an electrified staff) and what's worse by season 4 he's mostly just cracking open bank vaults like a C-list looser villain. The ultimate example of this trope in play is probably that the Joker once stole his Venom formula and became more of a threat with it than Bane ever was.

!! Black Mask
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JamesRemar
* BadBoss: Never let yourself get delayed or question his plans if you value your life, as two of his Number Ones learned the hard way. He'll also assign a random mook to take over as NumberOne.
* TheChessmaster: Many of his plans fall into this.
* ClockKing: Usually plans things to the second.
* DidntSeeThatComing: His reaction to when his plans fail.
* EvilPlan: As a villain, he plots a few.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He's voiced by James Remar.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Towards his enemies.
* HannibalLecture: Tries it on Robin and Batgirl.
* KnightOfCerebus: In his first appearance, he very nearly succeeds in destroying Gotham City and unlike other villains, has no humorous traits whatsoever. He also isn't above [[YouHaveFailedMe lethally punishing incompetence]].
* ManInWhite: Wears a white suit, which has since became Black Mask's IconicOutfit in most media appearances since.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Probably due to his mask.
* TheSpook: When the Gotham PD gets him in custody, they can find no matching fingerprints, no identifying marks, and they're unable to remove his mask. He also has quite a well trained organization for a guy with a completely unknown background.

!! Dr. Kirk Langstrom/Man-Bat
--> '''Voiced by''': Peter [=MacNicol=]
* AbledInTheAdaptation: Unlike his counterpart in the comics, he shows no signs of losing his hearing.
* AdaptationOriginConnection: "Attack of the Terrible Trio" sees the titular trio use versions of the serum Kirk used to make himself Man-Bat, as opposed to be normal people in the costumes as in the comics.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In this version, rather than to cure his own growing deafness ([[MythologyGag though his cover story is that it's for his deaf niece]]) he created the Man-Bat formula to be feared. And unlike previous Man-Bats, where Langstrom is not in control of his actions while the serum is active, this one is likely fully aware and in control.
* ArtEvolution: Like Joker, he was given black rings around his eyes in his second appearance.
* BioAugmentation: As usual.
* EvilAlbino: Man-Bat and his human form are both albinos. Subverted when [[spoiler:Kirk Langstrom reforms and becomes TheAtoner in Season 5.]]
* HeelFaceTurn - In the fifth season. [[spoiler: He tells Batman that he had nothing to do with the Terrible Trio, and that he's all done with being Man-Bat. He even offers to help in any way he can.]]
* IJustWantToBeYou: He turned himself into a monster because he wanted to be feared like the Batman.
* MagicPants: They remain even after he transforms.
* ProfessorGuineaPig: As most versions of Langstrom.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Man-Bat.

!! ComicBook/LexLuthor
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/ClancyBrown

* AffablyEvil: As usual.
* AlliterativeName '''L'''ex '''L'''uthor.
* ArchNemesis: To Superman.
* BaldOfEvil: As usual.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: This ''is'' Lex Luthor.
* DiabolicalMastermind: He's Luthor.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He's voiced by Creator/ClancyBrown.
* FantasticRacism: Similar to other recent incarnations of Luthor, this version has a hatred of aliens.
* KnightTemplar: Believes his taking control of the world will actually help it significantly. He also has plans to ensure the world will never be in danger again.
* KneelBeforeZod: Forces [[spoiler:a mind-controlled Superman]] to bow to him.
* ManipulativeBastard: As usual.
* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: Claims he's plans to ensure no one will try to take over the world again. Batman points the obvious hole in his plan, ''he'' will be the one who takes over the world. His response? "Someone has to be in charge".
* RoleReprisal: From the Franchise/{{DCAU}}.

!! Mirror Master
--> '''Voiced by''': John Larroquette

* CanonForeigner: Not Mirror Master himself, but the show created an assistant named "Smoke".
* CompositeCharacter: Of both Mirror Masters. He has Sam's genius intellect and charisma as well as Evan's "I can do anything I think of with mirrors" ability.
* InkSuitActor: He looks like John Larroquette.
* MagicMirror: As usual.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Against the Flash.

!! The Everywhere Man
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/BrandonRouth

* BlessedWithSuck: Arguably; the clones he creates become progressively more and more sentient, and every multiplication equals an ''even more'' untrustworthy clone. This ability only comes in handy a few times, so a long fight isn't exactly a good idea.
* CanonForeigner: Created for the show.
* {{Expy}}: Of Multiple Man or Riot.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Batman and Robin use E-Man's clones' distrust to cause dissent among the clone army.
* InkSuitActor: Looks like Creator/BrandonRouth with red hair.
* MesACrowd: His power.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone : [[spoiler: The original initially made the duplicator gauntlet in order to get more work done. He never counted on his duplicate to become sentient and betray him. As a result, he gets locked up while the duplicate took his place.]]
* SendInTheClones: His powers allow him to do this.

!! Francis Gray
--> '''Voiced by''': Dave Foley

* TheBadGuyWins: Francis's plan succeeds, [[spoiler:his bomb goes off and he kills everyone, including Batman. However, he undoes it when he ends up killing his own son as well.]]
* BigNo: [[spoiler:When his son dies as a result of his scheme to flood Gotham with poisonous gas at the strike of midnight on New Year's Eve]].
* BornUnlucky: Francis isn't just klutzy, he's extraordinarily unlucky - he mostly uses his powers to cover up the many, many times the universe screws him over. Amusingly, from our heroes' perspective he's an ace criminal who accounts for everything simply because everything that could go wrong for him already has over several resets.
* CanonForeigner: Francis doesn't appear in the comics, although he does seem to be based off the Clock King, which would make this a case of AdaptationNameChange.
* ClockKing: In the sense he memorizes all of an opponent's moves each time he goes back in time a few seconds.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: As clumsy and klutzy as he is, he's a very big threat to Batman due to his [[TimeMaster time]] powers. He actually [[TheBadGuyWins succeeds]] in his EvilPlan, but chose to do reform on his own free will.
* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler:Goes both ways. He only stole a watch, but in doing so toppled a set of DisasterDominoes that got him locked away for over a decade. He gets back at the city by killing everyone in it.]]
* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler:He is eventually able to undo his original crime with his powers. In the present day, he and his son work together as clock repairmen.]]
* EpicFail: Most of the timelines he undoes involve him getting spectacularly thwarted by Batman (and the first time, a common RedShirt).
* {{Expy}}: Appears to be based off the Clock King, in particular the Tem version.
* GroundhogDayLoop: He can voluntarily create these, but they only last for 20 seconds. It's enough for him to repeat the recent past over and over to avoid all his mistakes.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Through a combination of BigNo and ResetButton]].
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Accidentally killing his own son causes this reaction and finally gives him the power to go back to the original theft of the watch.]]
* OutsideContextProblem: It's never explained ''how'' he got his powers, just one day he was in his prison cell surrounded by clocks and ''somehow'' managed to [[AchievementInIgnorance stop time]]. It's never made clear if he had the power before and merely discovered them that first time, or if he somehow gained time powers simply from being being surrounded by clocks.
* PyrrhicVillainy: [[spoiler:Subverted. He accidentally kills his own son with his poison bomb, but the grief of this allows him to go back 17 years in the past and undo all of his mistakes.]]
* ResetButton: He's a walking case of this, able to reverse time by several seconds [[spoiler:and eventually several ''decades'']] in order to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.
* SaveScumming: InUniverse, his power in a nutshell.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: A villainous example; his TimeMaster powers let him redo several seconds and undo his mistakes. [[spoiler:At the end, he is able to go back to his original crime 17 years ago and undo it.]]
* TimeMaster: A very minor version who is capable of slipping several seconds back in time, to avoid mistakes he just made.

!! Garfield Lynns/Firefly/[[spoiler:Phosphorus]]
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JasonMarsden
* BeardOfEvil: A small, scruffy blond goatee.
* CompositeCharacter: [[spoiler:His final episode also sees him become the show's version of Doctor Phosphorus.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Not above quiping.
* JetPack: As usual.
* PsychoForHire: He's hired by [=GothCorp=] to attack its rivals in his debut. His second season appearance has him working for Mr. Freeze as well.
* TookALevelInBadass: Goes from low-level rogue to capable of exploding the entire city in his last appearance.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler: He slowly loses his mind once he gains superpowers and becomes Phosphorus.]]
* UnholyMatrimony: With Blaze, a fellow arsonist in his last appearance, (Batgirl even compares them to Joker and Harley) [[spoiler:until his plan to blow up the city makes her leave him.]]

!! Jane Blazedale/Blaze
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/RachaelMacFarlane

* CanonForeigner: Created as a DistaffCounterpart of Firefly.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After Firefly becomes Phosphorus and snaps.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: She wears glasses.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Regrets helping make Firefly into Phosphorus]].
* {{Revenge}}: She was fired for conducting unsafe experiments.

!! Ragdoll
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett

* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: A burglar who can use his triple-jointed abilities to bend his body in normally impossible ways.
* {{Contortionist}}: Exaggerated. He's so good at this he can fit inside of a hat!
* RoguesGalleryTransplant: Traditionally a Flash rogue rather than a Batman Rogue.

!! The Joining

* AliensAreBastards: They travel to planets to loot and destroy them, destroying every civilisation they come across in the process.
* BigBad: Of the two-part arcs, "The Joining" and "Lost Heroes".
* CanonForeigner: They were created for show.
* EvilerThanThou: Numerous Gotham villains, including the Joker, team up with Batman and the other heroes to take them down as they recognise them as a threat. Hugo Strange actually ''allies'' with them, but it's clear that they see him as just a useful pawn.
* {{Expy}}: Of Brainiac. And probably the White Martians in the comics and the Alien Invaders in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' animated series "Secret Origins", right down to their enmity with ComicBook/MartianManhunter.
* {{Planet Looter|s}}: Their M.O.
* OmnicidalManiac: They're stated to have killed other civilizations they've come into contact with.

!! Cluemaster/Arthur Brown

--> '''Voiced by''': Glenn Shadix, Creator/KathSoucie (as a child)

* AdaptationalUgliness: ''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.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Goes from a blonde to a redhead.
* BasementDweller: He even built his evil lair in his mom's basement.
* BerserkButton: Getting a question wrong, being asked a question he doesn't know the answer and being forced to admit he doesn't know everything.
* CatchPhrase: As a child, Cluemaster screams "NO FAIR!" when he loses the "Think, Thank, Thunk" game show. As an adult, he screams it again when Batman beats him at his own game.
* ChildProdigy: Was one.
* DisproportionateRetribution: 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 BasementDweller in the process. Batman [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech seriously called him out on this]] when he confronted him, but it went in one ear and out the other.
* EvilIsPetty: 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.
* FatBastard: Unlike the comics, this Artie Brown is a mountain of a man who's spent the last 30 years plotting his revenge... and eating pallets full of Kremelos (his consolation prize).
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: He is so [[InsufferableGenius insufferably confident]] in his own genius he allows himself to be goaded by Batman into accepting ''any'' question... and is completely stumped when Batman asks him the only question he couldn't [[SecretIdentity possibly know.]]
** The same thing happened when he was a child. He was so smug about his abilities he choose the hardest level of question on the gameshow, and ended up getting the answer wrong.
** Even before Batman shows up, he had a chance to win the revenge game by giving the simple answer to the final question, but instead decides to extend the answer, giving Batman enough time to defeat the final Mook.
* Hypocrite: He throws temper tantrums when he's outsmarted, even though his opponents played fairly. For double humiliation, Batman beat him at a game where ''he'' made up the rules.
* InsufferableGenius: He really like boasting about his intelligent.
* ItsAllAboutMe: The only thing important to him is being the champion, and probably let everyone know he's smart.
* {{Kevlard}}: A mild example. Artie's so huge that when Batman lands a flying kick against him, he ''gets stuck'' in Artie's stomach flab and ends up tossed for his efforts.
* NeverMyFault: 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.
* PsychopathicManchild: He was a former game show contestant and he believes he lost because his opponent cheated. He has spent 30 years doing nothing but plot his revenge. In his mothers basement no less.
* {{Revenge}}: On the hosts and a competitor, believing that they rigged the show and cost him his title as champion.
* StoutStrength: Despite being a morbidly obese BasementDweller, Artie's a huge MightyGlacier capable of flinging Batman around and [[{{Kevlard}} shrugging off]] Batman's blows.
* VillainousBreakdown: He goes completely nuts when forced to admit that he doesn't know Batman's true identity.
* WeightTaller: He's about nine feet tall in addition to being fat as hell.

!! Gearhead
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/WillFriedle

* AllThereInTheManual: His real name and origins aren't mentioned in the episode where he appears, but the tie-in comic tells them (his name is Nathan Finch, just like the mainstream comics version).
* BadassDriver: As usual.
* {{Nanomachines}}: The source of his abilities.
* CoolCar: In fact, he can turn any car into a yellow car that can even outdo the first Batmobile.

!! Sinestro

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/MiguelFerrer

* GreenLanternRing: Wileds a similar ring.
* EvilCounterpart: To Green Lantern.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He is voiced by Miguel Ferrer after all.
* HumanAliens: As usual.
* ManOfKryptonite: His ring is very antithesis to Green Lantern's.
* MeaningfulName: [[CaptainObvious He's evil.]]

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

--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett

* AIIsACrapshoot: Goes without saying. [[spoiler: Subverted when it turns out he was purposefully programmed to become evil.]]
* AllYourPowersCombined: He has the perfect combination of the best skills of each of Batman's worst enemies, both mentally and physically.
* BadassLongcoat: When he first goes on a rampage, he steals a trenchcoat that he likes. He wears it for the rest of the episode.
* BrainUploading: He's created from the duplicated mental patterns of the entire Batman RoguesGallery.
* CanonForeigner: He's created for the show.
* DeadpanSnarker: He does this a lot.
* TheDragon: To Hugo Strange, although he is unaware of this since he tends to act on his own accord.
* {{Expy}}:
** Possibly one to H.A.R.D.A.C. from the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries previous cartoon]] as both are rogue AIs with [[Creator/JeffBennett the same voice actor]].
** He might also be one of [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL 9000]], especially the glowing red eyes.
* ForTheEvulz: As he himself puts it:
-->'''Batman''': D.A.V.E., why are you doing this?
-->'''D.A.V.E.''': Did you just say ''why''? Why do ''you'' dress like a bat? Why do you fight crime? Why do we do ''anything'', Batman? I do what I do because I have made it my purpose, like you have made it your purpose to stop me, but shall fail trying!
* FunWithAcronyms: His name.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: 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 went catatonic after realizing that he had no backstory of his own.
** CardCarryingVillain
* LEGOGenetics: He's made from the mental patterns of Batman's enemies.
* LogicBomb: What defeats him.
* PragmaticVillainy: He doesn't snap Batman's neck when he has the chance for two reasons: breaking bones was passe and Batman's defeat had to be the ultimate defeat.
* ShoutOut:
** His appearance and name are a reference to ''[[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001]]''.
** He's voiced by Creator/JeffBennett, who had also voiced another AIIsACrapshoot CanonForeigner in the [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries previous Batman cartoon]].
** His death is similar to the destruction of [[Film/TheTerminator the Terminator]].
* TomatoInTheMirror: He doesn't actually know he's a robot.
* UltimateLifeform: Calls himself "Gotham's Ultimate Criminal Mastermind". it's even the name of the episode he appears in.

!! The Kabuki Twins (Peri and Gale)

A pair of geishas/ninjas who act as Penguin's bodyguards/henchgirls.
* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Penguin acquired them during his stay in the Orient and they are experts at fighting, often times besting Batman himself in combat.
* AllThereInTheManual: They are never named in-series, but side-material states that their names are "Peri" and "Gale".
* AmbiguouslyHuman: They are TheVoiceless, TheFaceless and they tend to move in disturbing, almost inhuman ways. For all we know, they could be robots or some type of genetically-engineered, anthropomorphic birds!
* BodyguardingABadass: Penguin is an AdaptationalBadass in this series, being more than capable of handling himself in combat. But even he needs backup at times.
* BodyguardBabes: Sort of.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: They stopped appearing towards the end of the series.
* CreepyTwins: See AmbiguouslyHuman and you'll understand why.
* TheFaceless: They are never seen without their masks or catsuits at any point in the series.
* KimonoFanservice: Subverted. The twins wear green kimonos and black wigs over their masks and catsuits when they're not fighting, but there is really nothing sexy about them.
* PaidHarem: Possibly. Though it's a very particular example, as there's no real way to know exactly what they are. Humans? Robots? Mutants? Are they even actually female?
* SheFu: Their primary fighting style, which involves a lot of flips, kicks, and double-teaming.
* SpyCatsuit: Red ones.
* StrongerThanTheyLook: As Yin points out in the GCPD case files, the Kabuki Twins appear to be harmless in their geisha getup, but are ass-kicking martial artists with WolverineClaws.
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: And they are never seen without them.
* WolverineClaws: Three each on both hands.
* TheVoiceless: They never speak and the only vocal noises they make are unintelligible whispers.

!! Count Dracula
