''Batman '66'' essentially does this when False Face [[spoiler: is revealed to be Basil Karlo and gets turned into this universe's Clayface.]]]]
** Two-Face's real name is Harvey Dent but the script was based off of Paul Sloane's first appearance resulting the character in "The Lost Episode" being an amalgamation of the two.

** An inverted example: in the second Shame episode, Hermione Baddeley doesn't try too hard to cover up her English accent while portraying (presumably American) Frontier Fanny.

Meanwhile, Barry Dennen plays a Mexican ''bandito'' whose whole character is one big {{Brownface}} joke, down to the English accent and his initials spelling out "Fred".

* NobodyCallsMeChicken:
** West's Batman is unusually susceptible to this, since unlike his cross-continuity brethren, he's a public figure who needs a sterling reputation.
** In "Pop Goes The Joker/Flop Goes The Joker", Joker calls him "chickenhearted" for letting Robin show up alone to rescue hostages and later talks smack about him with Batman [[RightBehindMe listening behind him]] and Gordon on the line. Led to a Crowning Moment of Funny with the Joker OutGambitted and [[HumiliationConga utterly humiliated]].
** Similar taunts led to Batman's - reluctant - participation in both the boxing match in "Ring Around the Riddler" and the infamous surfing contest from "Surf's Up! Joker's Under!".
** Batman actually ''uses'' this tactic on Shame in "The Great Train Robbery", after all other ways to find Shame's gang have failed.



* TheSoCalledCoward:
** A villain called Bat's bravery into question in one episode.

Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: Used with abandon, considering the seemingly limitless amount of henchmen and wacky inventions all the arch-criminals have at their disposal. Batgirl arguably uses a heroic variant, since it's not clear how a librarian (even one who is the Police Commissioner's daughter) could afford so many gadgets, including a motorcycle with a ''built-in Geiger counter''.

Added DiffLines:

* MayorPain: While Mayor Linseed is rarely seen doing much (or seen, ''period''), he's generally painted as not much more competent than Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara. In Season 3 he gets replaced by Special Guest Villainess Nora Clavicle, who's much, ''much'' worse.

** The villians are astounded that the Dynamic Duo escape their death traps on a weekly basis.
** More tragically is Warden Crichton, who makes earnest attempts to rehabillitate his inmates, with little success.
