** And of course, there's also Derek Powers' transformation into the supervillain Blight. After getting [[HoistByHisOwnPetard exposed to the poison gas himself]], Derek receives [[ILoveNuclearPower radiation therapy]] to save his life. The combined effects of the gas and radiation mutate him into what looks like a glowing green skeleton [[WalkingWasteland with deadly radiation powers]]. [[EvilMakesYouUgly His new appearance fits his black soul]].

** Whats especially nasty is that not only does the poor woman see everyone around her as giant insects, but ''her own jewelry have become monstrous worms and bugs as well''. Even people who ARENT afraid of insects generally dont want to be surrounded by them or have them crawl on you.



* The final fate of Talia Al Ghul. She's reunited with Bruce after decades apart, having finally taken over in her fathers stead after he eventually died. She's still young thanks to the use of the Lazarus Pits and wants Bruce to join her in eternal life. [[spoiler: Talia is already dead. Its RAZ AL GHUL occupying her body, having taken his daughters body over when his own decayed beyond use, and wants to take Bruce's as well so he can continue his legacy.]]

* The regional Kobra leader committing suicide rather than let Batman catch him by jumping into a pit of snakes.
* Bane's ultimate fate; after decades of Venom abuse, he's been reduced to a shriveled, comatose wreck who needs a steady supply of Venom to survive. His handler tells Terry that at the end, Bane needed help just to make the Venom, his body had decayed so badly that he couldnt do it by himself anymore.
** Said handler OD'ing on Venom while fighting Terry at the end of the episode when he falls into a crate of the Venom patches he's been selling as a street drug.
* The Joker King from the comic series. He's actually Dana's sociopathic brother who's been idolizing the original Joker since childhood, and have just gotten worse and worse despite his parents trying to find some way to cure his behavior. As an adult, he organizes a massive army of Jokerz from all over the country and leads them in a huge riot all over the city that kills thousands. He's an even bigger StrawNihilist than the Joker ever was, beliving that because the solar system and the galaxy and the universe itself will eventually end, life is inherently meaningless as nothing you can possibly do will matter in the end. Unlike the Joker, he doesnt want a grand fight to the finish with Batman, he wants to kill his own family just to spite them, then die himself. He ends up killing himself while fighting Terry.

* Blight nicely sets the NightmareFuel tone for the series right from the early going.
** There's also what his chemical does. Probably due to censors, we don't actually SEE what happens to a human or an animal, [[NothingIsScarier but that arguably makes it worse]] given what we see it does to plants, and Derek's comment, depending on whether or not you think he was being literal or metaphorical, implies humans hit with it turn to dust if not treated.
** [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even the man Derek Powers was selling it to]] was {{Squick}}ed out when he saw the effects on humans.
** Not at all helped by [[DissonantSerenity Derek's casual demeanor when showing the effects]].

* What about the episode "Rats"? Dana is kidnapped by a delusional stalker with giant rats as pets! At first he seems like a sympathetic character talking about how society rejected him for his looks, but by the end of the episode it's revealed that he's a serial killer that feeds teenagers to his rats! If Batman hadn't showed up Dana would have definitely been killed.

** The fact that Cuvier's transformation kinda looked like Tetsuo's from ''Anime/{{Akira}}'' makes it even ''creepier''.

** A similar example would be Batman's encounter with Edgar Mandragora, Steven Mandragora's son from the Justice League series, who has become a terrifying old psychic who likes MindRape people until he beats with objects or stabs them with the blade in his cane. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zjh1mhtxDng Not to mention he eerily looks like some psychotic ghost.]]
