The Big Town Robber is very sneaky and is unlike any other baddie as he is not afraid of stealing from police and little children. He's arguably sneakier than The Shadow as he can keep out of Brum's line of sight which no other baddie can do. Another notable trait is that he uses prosthetic hands to increase the amount he grabs. He also rarely disguises himself as he cloaks himself from sight with his grey jacket. Unlike other baddies he hides his loot in his coat to blend in after he takes the item. When on the run he uses misdirection to confuse others like using complex environments to lose his tail and has managed to lose Brum for a time. This also includes hiding out of sight and using the environment to make sure Brum can't get at him such as when he clumsily scaled the wall. Despite his devious tricks Brum always foils him which leads to him being arrested in public.
- After his 1st arrest in Brum and the Big Chase he presumably escapes during the course of the net episode Brum and the Wedding as the episode after that is his second appearance Brum and the Big Town Race. This makes him the quickest to escape from Jail.
- He is arguably more villainous than The Shadow as he has no problems robbing police and even babies!
- He's the only baddie to be able to keep out of Brum's sight and use prosthetic hands to grab things in which no other baddie can do.
- He's the only thief in Series 2.
