The DCAU ended production with the final episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. However, its influence continues to this day both in Comics and WesternAnimation, and due to the distinct art style of the 'verse (aka TimmStyle) being applied to later animated adaptations of TheDCU, other properties are frequently and incorrectly cited as part of the DCAU. The DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies is something of a SpiritualSuccessor, featuring many of the same production staff with a similar design aesthetic and story tone, but are mostly in their own self-contained universes.

* FantasyGunControl: Averted in most cases, making the DCAU cartoons unique among TV shows of the '90s era. Although it's pretty rare for anyone ([[ShootingSuperman other than Superman]]) to actually get shot, as most bad guys who use guns seem to have graduated from the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy.

The inevitable crossover occurred with ''World's Finest'', which teamed Batman and Superman against the Joker and SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor and firmly placed them in a SharedUniverse. After several more crossovers, both shows ended about the same time in 1999, when ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' came on to take their place. While initially diversive for its premise as a teenage Batman in the future mentored by an elderly Bruce Wayne, ''Beyond'' was able to continue the legacy of the prior shows and had many standout moments of its own. In fact, an episode featuring a future version of the ''ComicBook/JusticeLeague'' proved popular enough that Cartoon Network made an order for the production to create ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' in 2001. For this new show Justice League introduces what can be considered a third TimmStyle revamp, an attempt to include more individuality between characters that was lost with the streamlined design. With two seasons showcasing seven core members of the league, the production staff made a massive retool for the following season to include dozens of characters never before seen in the DCAU, rebranding itself ''Justice League Unlimited''. After another couple of seasons, reaching the absolute height of ambition to showcase the entire DC Comics roster, the DCAU officially ended in 2006.

''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' began first, intended as something of a tie-in with ''Film/BatmanReturns'' but with its own distinct canon and take on the mythos and airing on the Fox Kids network. The high quality animation, scripting and voice work received near instant praise, helping to redefine Batman to the general public as neither the campy Creator/AdamWest ''Series/{{Batman}}'' or the ultra dark Creator/MichaelKeaton ''Film/{{Batman}}'', but as someone who often has to protect his RoguesGallery from themselves. the specific character design is referred to as TimmStyle, and has been very influential with elements based on it seen in many western animation action shows. After 85 episodes over 3 seasons ([[SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon 65 episodes in the first season]] alone, generally unheard of) the show ended in 1995. Soon afterward, the same creators went on to make ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' for the Kids WB network, featuring a similar but more streamlined art style. When the license to BTAS on Fox Kids expired, they went on to make a SequelSeries called ''The New Batman Adventures'', which in practice was more of a {{revival}} and featured a massive art redesign to match up with STAS.
