** That last one could be chalked up to Lock-Up going insane from the delusion that his imprisonment is the ultimate promotion to watch over his victims. But it's nice to see he's generally not just some MilesGloriosus who cowers when the odds aren't in his favor.

** That [[CatharsisFactor cathartic moment]] when Batman has Fox at his mercy. After seeing the Terrible Trio look down upon "the little people" they rob and manipulate, the Dark Knight (a supposedly "poor man") has Warren reduced to a DirtyCoward trying to negotiate his way out of prison. Just goes to show, money can't buy you courage.

* In "Beware the Creeper", the title character {{Offhand Backhand}}s ''Batman''. '''BATMAN'''.
** The grunt of pain Batsy makes when he's sent flying just makes it even better and funnier.
** Getting the Joker to become a sniveling mess at the end, turning to ''Batman'' for help!

* In "Feat of Clay Part 2", Batman chases down Germs (a member of Roland Daggit's criminal ring) into an area in the hospital that collects bacteria cultures. Need we mention that, true to his namesake, the guy is TerrifiedOfGerms? Batman interrogates him by putting a jar precariously on a shelf over Germ's head, a jar he reads contains "Crimson Fever". Every time Germs withholds any information, Batman hits the wall, causing the jar to shake closer and closer to the edge. Just when he's about to get Germs to spill the last information he needs, a police officer [[note]] It's really Clayface in disguise [[/note]] arrives and says he'll take it from here. Out of passive aggression, Batman hits the wall once more, sending the jar falling towards Germs. ...Only to catch it at the last instant, the label revealing it's only "Seawater Samples". Yep, Batman just bluffed[[note]] He never really ''said'' the jar ''contained'' Crimson Fever, he just mentioned it then described how deadly it was[[/note]] a guy into confessing. Bonus points if you imagine he even fooled the ''audience''.

!!The series



* Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman, managed a Moment of Awesome in real life as well. After the 9/11 attacks, Conroy was volunteering at a soup kitchen, feeding rescue workers, victims, and such. (Which is pretty awesome in and of itself.) Eventually, someone recognized his voice, and word quickly spread. Then Conroy stood up in a chair and recited "I am Vengeance! I am the Night! '''I AM BATMAN!!'''" He got a standing ovation.



* The show's effect on Mr. Freeze, permanently turning him from an utterly generic and forgettable character into a very sympathetic AntiVillain whose popularity even rivals the Joker.



* In ''Chemistry'', Poison Ivy gloats to a group of rich people that she created their so-called perfect husbands and wives in order to kill them off and gain their fortunes, [[spoiler: including Bruce's new wife, Susan.]] When Ivy realizes [[spoiler: Susan Wayne]] is missing, she has her other creations look for her. At which point, one of the rich people who fell for Ivy's plant men asks "are we just gonna stand here while she does this to us?" and they decide to try and stop Ivy.
* 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 ComicBook/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.

** One comment in the video linked above puts it best.
-->Charlie has pegged down the Joker, and discovered the means to truly destroy him. Batman could inspire fear in every thug he faced except the Joker- Charlie succeeded where Batman had failed. And by making Batman laugh, he also succeeded where the Joker had failed.

** Charlie also proves himself competent ''before'' he makes Joker spill the beans: left to die with the police officers via his hand being stuck to a door handle, as soon as Batman shows up he immediately tells him that the main threat is the bomb pinned to Gordon's shirt. If he hadn't spoken up, everyone there would've probably died before the bomb was found: himself, Gordon, every single officer, and even Batman himself!
