* In "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?", Batman and Robin spend the entire episode trying to save corrupt businessman Daniel Mockridge from Edward Nygma (aka the Riddler)- Nygma is out for revense due to Mockridge screwing him out of the royalties and ownership of a successful video game that he created. Though the Dynamic Duo manage to rescue Mockridge and foil the Riddler's revenge, the Riddler is able to escape apprehension by conducting the entire operation remotely from a private plane. Dick Grayson later gripes about the fact that the Riddler got away and Mockridge can't be charged with being a scumbag who cheated the Riddler. Bruce Wayne, however, has a different, darkly satisfying point of view of the entire affair-

-->'''Dick Grayson:''' But that creep, Mockridge, got to pocket a cool $10 mil from the buyout. What a burn...
-->'''Bruce Wayne:''' Maybe... but we've been searching for the Riddler for months. And he's still out there...
--> ''(Cut to Mockridge bolting his door with several locks, holding a shotgun with a look of abject fear on his face as he creeps nervously through his own home.)''
-->'''Bruce:''' Mockridge may have his money- but he won't be sleeping well...
-->''(Mockridge climbs into bed reluctantly, pulling the sheets up to his face as he looks around, terrified)''
-->'''Bruce:''' ''(satisfyingly)'' How much is a good night's sleep worth? Now '''there's''' a riddle for you...

* In ''Be A Clown'' the mayor's son Jordan ran away with the clown Jecko, who just tricked Batman into a water trap. Jordan ''grabs an axe'' and tries to free him. Jecko stops the kid and then reveals himself to be SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. This is the point where most kids piss their pants and cry for mommy. ''Nope.'' Jordan sprays him in the face with seltzer and starts running, giving Batman the time to break free and the Joker quite a chase through a creepy abandoned amusement park. For a kid implied to be a preteen, that is freaking {{Badass}}.

-->''"This is how it ends, Joker. No big schemes. No grand fight to the finish with the Dark Knight. Tomorrow, all the papers will say that the great Joker was found, blown to bits in an alley, alongside a ''[[IronicEcho miserable little nobody]].'' Kind of funny! Ironic, really. See, I can destroy a man's dreams, too! And that's really the only dream you've got, isn't it?"''

** Ordinarily, Harley is shown to be a purely comic villain or an accomplice to the Joker. In this episode, though, we finally get a chance to see that she's a master criminal and BadassNormal in her own right: during a museum heist, she effortlessly uses her skills as a gymnast to avoid a laser security system, then cracks open a display case without setting off any alarms. Later, after meeting Ivy, Harley is able to quickly cover the pair's escape by using the plant toxins Ivy's stolen to create a poison cloud which incapacitates the cops.

* In both critics' own reviews, and aggregated score sites like Rotten Tomatoes, ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm Mask of the Phantasm]]'' is the highest-rated Batman movie pre-Nolan. Even Siskel & Ebert praised it!

** Even better - she does this by disguising herself as a police officer so she can get the Joker alone in the back of an armored prison van, and reveals herself to him shortly after the doors close. So we can assume that Harley was whacking him with that nightstick ''all the way to Arkham.''

So we can assume that Harley was whacking him with that nightstick ''all the way to Arkham.'''' Compounding this is the fact that she, a well-known wanted felon, successfully disguises herself as a police officer so well that it fools ''the entire Gotham police force''.

* In the episode "Jokers Wild", the titular Joker-themed casino is opened, attracting the ire of the Clown Prince Of Crime himself, and Batman investigating incognito as Bruce Wayne. As the Joker commandeers a Blackjack table, Bruce decides to go and play a round, while at the same time taking several verbal jabs at the decor AND the Joker, while the Joker remains completely unaware that his own worst enemy is having a laugh at his expense. The kicker of the whole scene? ''He manages to out cheat the Joker.''

** One for the Joker too: he didn't still manage to find Charlie even after he'd gone into hiding, he ''never lost him,'' not in ''two whole years.''

** Another one for "Harlequinade": when Harley straight-up ''kicks the Joker in the face'' when he tries to keep her from going back [[MamaBear to save their pet hyenas.]]
