* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: Only noticeable in the background, but when Harley and Ivy were hiding out in a small one-room apartment [[HoYay there was only one bed]]. Though this is generally justified, as it demonstrates that they had absolutely no start-up capital and could barely afford this empty room with a bed. And given the amount of LesYay in that partnership ([[GettingCrapPastTheRadar more than you could ever expect from a children's show in the '90s]]), very deliberate.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Pamela insists she and Harley are fighting {{Double Standard}}s in Gotham crime, but her relationship with Harley is the same as the one Harley has with the Joker: Pamela is dominant, and Harley is (still) submissive. ** She also seems quite willing to eat salad herself, despite previous episodes where she accused anyone who kills plants of being a murderer. ** A subtler example involves Ivy's misandry, as she goes around basically beating all men over the head with accusations of misogyny and sexism. In a particularly atrocious moment, she gloats about chaining Batman up with various cleaning implements she refers to as "the bonds of female domestic slavery" as she and Harley are preparing to drown him; conveniently forgetting that those implements are all labor-saving devices that ''men'' specifically invented to ''ease'' domestic women's work loads, which is what gave a lot of those women in the 19th and 20th centuries the leisure time they needed to pursue other interests, such as (among other things) suffrage and other forms of women's empowerment.
