* AdvertisedExtra: When he was a member of the main cast for ''Series/TourOfDuty'', but the writers could never figure out how to properly integrate him into the storylines, as his character was a commander who normally stayed on base. Stuck in Hawaii with nothing to do for most of the working week, he set up a small stand on the beach and sold sketch portraits to tourists out of boredom. His character was dramatically killed off before the end of the first season.



* VocalEvolution: Batman started off with a [[GutturalGrowler deep, growling voice]] while Bruce Wayne had a higher, more playful voice. From ''WesternAnimation/TheNewBatmanAdventures'' onwards, Conroy made his Batman voice higher, without the growl and spoke in that same tone as Bruce Wayne. [[ExecutiveMeddling It wasn't entirely his decision, though.]] He mentions in ''Film/IKnowThatVoice'' that he was fairly new to voice acting when first taking on Batman and he performed that voice not knowing how [[DentedIron difficult it would be on his vocal chords]], so he had to figure out a way to emulate the same effect without injuring himself. He did do a voice similar to his original Batman voice once for ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Harley Quinn's Revenge]]''.

* InkSuitActor: Had Conroy discovered Batman twelve years earlier, all he had to do was dye his hair black and he could've played a Live-Action Batman.
