*** On the subject of the duplicate, at the beginning of the episode, we have no idea at all that it's a duplicate right up until a mook shoots it, only for said mook to get an "OhCrap" moment [[RoboticReveal upon seeing a hole full of circuitry in its stomach.]] And later, when the real Batman shows up, the mook, traumatized from his encounter with the duplicate, exclaims, "Keep him away, man! He ain't human! Get it away from me!" And then after Alfred also discovers that the Batman is a duplicate, he escapes into the Bat Cave and activates the knockout gas. Then it appears right behind Alfred, unaffected by the gas, and takes off the gas mask Alfred is wearing, forcing Alfred to breathe in the gas, which knocks him out.

** And then there's the time he had a creepy robot clown driving his boat that emitted a cloud of laughing gas all over Gotham. It seemed pretty innocent until it was established that lengthy exposure to said gas would result in untreatable insanity. Which really hits home when we see Alfred—- Bruce's ''surrogate father''—- afflicted by the gas.

** Before Bruce learns that Harvey has been seeking help for severe anger problems, he jokes to Harvey that if Harvey didn't marry Grace (his fiance) soon, he'd maybe just steal her away. A few minutes later, Harvey gets the bad news that the judge has thrown out a case that Harvey had spent months preparing. Harvey gets angry and Bruce, like any good friend, goes to ask him what's wrong. Harvey turns on Bruce and Grace has to stop him. That implies that Big Bad Harv didn't think Bruce wasn't joking when he made that comment earlier. [[FridgeHorror Seeing how he reacted when a criminal made fun of him earlier in the episode, what would Harvey had done had Grace not been there?]]

** Also during the scene with the therapist, when she's attempting to talk to him at one point lightning strikes, and the flash that appears over his face is the scarred Two-Face side. It lasts only a split-second, but it's enough to get burned into the viewer's mind and get a good subliminal scare.

* "Growing Pains" introduces us to Annie, an amnesiac teenage girl, scared by a man who's stalking her... [[spoiler: Who's actually a drone of Clayface which somehow gained sentience. Just imagine being lost, stalked, and then learning you're not even a real person. And if this wasn't enough, we see Clayface absorb her back, essentially ''killing'' her.]] This is both nightmarish and a massive TearJerker.
** Also, how are we introduced to Annie ? By her being harassed by bikers. Who were catcalling her and acting like they just found a fresh prey. Had Tim not intervened, it's pretty clear those guys were about to ''gangrape a teenage girl''.

** It's even worse than that, as an adult. As a kid, you have an idea of why Lloyd taking his daughter is bad; because he's a criminal, and she'll never see her mother again. As an adult though, when you see how obsessed he is with her, [[PaedoHunt you start to get]] [[ParentalIncest the full picture]]...

*** The first time, the Joker's line "You have WHO tied up WHERE?!" is pretty funny...but watching it again and seeing the rage in Joker's eyes? Brrr...

*** [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/batmantheanimatedseries/images/b/b1/The_Scarecrow.png/revision/latest?cb=20130114051815 His first redesign]], with that snaggle-toothed grin and those unblinking eyes bulging out of the black holes of the mask, isn't that pleasant to look at either, especially when enhanced by the fear toxin.

* Such is the power of B:TAS's horror that it extends to the damn ''activity center'' based off of it. Never mind the creepy ambiance. Never mind that all the games set in Gotham pit you against such [[BlatantLies pleasant fellows]] as Two-Face and the Joker (the game set in the sewers implies that Killer Croc is there, making it even worse). Never mind that all that can be heard in Wayne Manor is that damn clock. If you try to continue a game, you'll first have to confirm whether or not you actually continue it or start a new game--''on a blood-red screen of the Joker staring right at you, taunting you with the knowledge that whichever choice you make, you'll never catch him.'' Oh, and every time you exit back to Gotham, he laughs at you from off-screen.
