* AdaptedOut: Jason Todd doesn't appear in the JLU adaptation, as he was never introduced in the DCAU. Similarly, Tim Drake, who held the title at the time the story was set, did not appear because he was ExiledFromContinuity as with all other Batman-related characters aside from Batman himself.

According to quotes on [[http://jl.toonzone.net/episode27/episode27.htm this page]], the creative team had some say in this; Bruce Timm and others "didnít hesitate for a moment to cut Robin" (though Dwayne [=McDuffie=] tried to keep him in before relenting).

* GenreSavvy: Batman stops Wonder Woman from attacking Mongul, which (as the villain says) is because he wants to learn all he can about the Black Mercy.



* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: While trying to pry loose the Black Mercy, Batman keeps talking to Superman.
-->"He'll kill her, Clark, and then he'll kill us all. Come back to us."
* InnocuouslyImportantEpisode: In a sense to the Cadmus arc, which hadn't even started yet. [[Recap/JusticeLeagueUnlimitedS2E12DividedWeFall Superman is angrier than he's ever been and about to kill his hated enemy, but he hesitates at the last moment because he's]] TheCape.



* ManlyTears: "I promise you, I'll never forget."

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Wonder Woman does a lot better here then she did in the original comics, actually putting up a good fight and being the one to pull the Black
Mercy off of Batman to use on Mongul. This doesn't change the fact that Mongul outclasses her, though; by the time Superman is out of his fantasy and intervenes, she's been beaten so badly that she can't even walk, forcing her to pull herself forward on one arm.
