* "Lost Soul". [[ItMakesSenseInContext When the Batsuit is taken over by an evil AI]], Terry makes do with Bruce's old belt and '''Nightwing's mask'''. In every version, Dick Grayson was the closest thing Bruce ever had to a son. [[spoiler: Then, in JLU, what do we find out Terry is?]]

* May be an unintentional example but the Terrific Trio's name. At first, it just appears to be an AlliterativeName based on the Fantastic Four but then take note of the fact that in the past, the word "terrific" [[HaveAGayOldTime used to have a much different connotation]], one signifying something bad or horrible the same way that the words "terror" and "terrifying" continue to do. In this sense, the name "Terrific Trio" has a harsher and more disturbing DoubleMeaning given their eventual tragic breakdown and demise.
* In "Hooked Up", when Donnie is first taken out of [[LotusEaterMachine his VR simulator]] by Spellbinder, he's told "It's time to pay the piper.", not just referring to the saying "He who pays the piper calls the tune", but to Literature/ThePiedPiperOfHamelin, who also stole children like Spellbinder did in this episode.

* We know that Terry's parents broke up prior to the start of the series, [[spoiler: but it's possible that the fact that neither Terry nor his brother resemble EITHER of his parents could have lead to suspicions of cheating on Mary's part, which itself could have been a major factor leading to the divorce.]] And anyone who's seen ''Epilogue'' knows that [[spoiler: neither parent was at all unfaithful. It was just that since the [=McGinnises=] were similar to Bruce's parents, they were chosen to have his reproductive data overwritten by Bruce's in an attempt to create a new Batman.]] In other words, simple bad luck could have caused this divorce.

* Remember when Ra's Al Ghul revealed that he uploaded his brain into Talia's body? We only get ''his'' word that she complied to it, but who's to say Talia wasn't completely on board with the idea?

* "Rebirth Part I" presumably has Warren killed in a brutal fashion. Terry beats himself up afterwards for not being there and helping his father (having no idea that the Jokerz weren't responsible)...but the fight he later has with Mr. Fixx indicates that if Terry had obeyed his father and stayed home, he would've been killed too.

* Pointed out by [[WebSite/SFDebris Chuck]]. What is the impetus for Bruce finally retiring? It's not his heart, although that's a factor-it's because that, in desperation, [[BatmanGrabsAGun he pulled a gun on someone]]--[[NotSoDifferent not unlike Joe Chill]]. If he had continued being Batman, he would have to turn to lethal force just to survive, [[ThouShaltNotKill something that goes against everything he stands for.]] It's at that point that he realized he just couldn't wear the cowl any more.

** It's made explicit that [[StalkerWithACrush Zander has an unhealthy attraction to Max]]. Not to mention that as part of the Kobra cult's [[ItMakesSenseInContext crazy plan to turn themselves into dinosaurs and]] {{take over the world}}, they were also planning to [[TransformationHorror forcibly splice her as well to become Zander's dinosaur queen]]. Good thing that Batman arrives before they could do that to her.

* When Max regains consciousness in "Curse of the Kobra Part II" and seems surprised by [[GoGoEnslavement her new outfit]], her "servants" explain it's because "when you arrived here, your clothes were torn." We saw her unconscious in Zander's car after the scuffle in her apartment, and her clothes ''weren't'' torn then, so... how did they get torn between then and now? What did Zander do to her in that time...?

* In "Shriek" Powers turns down legitimate use of Shreeve's tech saying that dynamite's cheaper. Even if it is cheaper, dynamite requires a full crew to plan and place and other equipment such as detonators, wiring, and a plunger to set it off. There could be other costs or a longer schedule depending on the project, such as safety harnesses. Not to mention that Shreeve takes down the old GCPD in minutes, ''while fighting Batman''. The suit is cheaper, Powers just tricked Shreeve because the latter was naive and because Powers was ticked that Shreeve scared him with his opening demonstration.

* In "Once Burned", King and Queen of the Royal Flush Gang are held hostage by the Jokerz and Melanie/Ten has to rob a gangsters' poker tournament as part of their ransom. But when you think about it, that ransom seems too specific and unlike how the Jokerz operate. [[spoiler: It makes much more sense when it's revealed that the whole thing was a loyalty test by King and Queen. Their task is not only hard, but it fits with the RFG's M.O.: The targets fit into the card theme (as it's a card game being robbed), and the RFG is demonstrating their superiority over "commoner" criminals by treating them as pawns and targets.]]

* From "The Winning Edge", [[spoiler: Bane's caretaker]] is the only person left to make Venom after Bane went into a vegetative state - with his own brain-dead state, Bane probably doesn't have much time left to live.
