** Ten years prior to the 2012 revival, ComicBook/TheJoker sent a computer virus into the ''Absolution''. It forced the computer monitors to display Joker's image, and it played four episodes of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' back-to-back. TOM eventually removed the virus, and the block ran as normal. This happened the same year as ''Trapped in Hyperspace'', which also featured a computer virus, so it could be {{Foreshadowing}}/

The new Toonami started off on a limited budget, with a lineup made up of anime left from the [as] action block (such as ''Bleach'', ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' and so on), cheaper new anime (like ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' and ''Anime/CasshernSins''), before expanding to a full six hours with returning CN original favorites ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' and the new ''[[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011 ThunderCats]]'' cartoon.

''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011''.



** The original, Moltar-hosted Toonami had the original ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' cartoon as part of its lineup. Take a random guess as to [[WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011 what]] was added to the revived block.

*** One of Toonami's staples is ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'', a tribute to the mecha genre of anime. A couple years after Toonami was cancelled, Cartoon Network aired [[WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan a similar tribute to mecha anime]], which was added to the revived Toonami along with ''WesternAnimation/{{ThunderCats|2011}}'' when it expanded to six hours.

** ''WesternAnimation/{{ThunderCats|2011}}'' deserves a special mention for pulling off million view nights at several points, despite its shorter vintage and being a western show instead of a japanese anime.

* LevelGrinding: TOM's only (fairly minor) complaint about ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'' is that there is a lot of grinding involved. Once the game picks up though, it feels like you're part of a StudioGhibli film just as you should, as they did develop the game, so it's really easy to overlook such a minor flaw.

** TOM wasn't even the host when Toonami first started. The block was instead operated by a villain from ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'', who ran things on Ghost Planet Industries. Even when TOM finally came around and the operations were moved over to the ''Absolution'', TOM himself was shorter and more pudgy. It wasn't until ''WesternAnimation/TheIntruder'' that TOM transitioned to a leaner, more muscular design that fans now associate with him.
