* Bruce Wayne's last fight as Batman in the same episode. The fact that Wayne struggles to keep up with the goons and gets a heart attack at the worst possible time, forcing him to [[BatmanGrabsAGun pick up a gun]] just to save himself and the child of Veronica Vreeland, one of his few remaining friends from ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries BTAS]]''. You can honestly understand [[HeroicBSOD why he retired after that]]/

** Amanda Waller intended to create a new Batman to replace Bruce when he became too old to keep up the fight, which is how Terry was born. She also intended to have his parents killed, and hired Bruce's old fling Andrea, aka The Phantasm to do the deed, but ultimatly, she couldnt go through with it, and confronted Waller about how monstrous the whole project was and how it flew in the face of everything that Batman stood for. Waller agreed. If you know anything about Amanda Waller, it takes a LOT for her to admit being wrong about something. Not that it mattered, since Terry lost his father anyway...

* Spellbinder's last two victims before he targeted Terry in "Spellbound". First, poor Deakins is hit and he drags a valuable dress around, thinking he's in the middle of a war and dragging a wounded comrade to safety. Especially not funny for anyone who knows anything about PTSD. Then he goes after some poor woman, ''on her wedding day''. Scaring her out of her mind and nearly getting her killed at least twice.

** Near the end of the episode, when Ten is shot at and starts to fall, Batman catches her as she looks at him remorsefully, saying, "I don't suppose I could convince you to let me go." We're then treated to a somber KubrickStare from Batman, which says a lot with only one expression, seen [[http://i55.tinypic.com/jgtk6p.png here]].

* The kids who fell victim to Spellbinder's VR chambers in "Hooked Up". Especially the sweet innocent girl Jessie. Unlike Donny, whose fantasy was rather predictable for a kid his age. Jessie's "perfect" life seems almost ordinary by comparison. The one thing that would make her most happy? Working at a fast food restaurant, where her manager (a rather geeky-looking but adorable guy named Wendell) asked her to marry him.

* "Mind Games", a lost girl named Tamara frantically calls Terry for help. He's forced to use every ounce of his (and Bruce's) detective abilities to find Tamara and every ounce of his combat abilities to fight the super-psykers who abducted her, all while comforting her to the best of his ability.

* In part two of "The Call" [[spoiler: Starro]] who'd been portrayed since his original creation as a [[FlatCharacter flat]] universal conqueror. In this series is simply the disgruntled victim of Superman's old foe "The Preserver". As Superman himself states, he never ''asked'' for what happened to him. He just let his resentment cloud his judgment.

** The fate of Aaron, a miserable loser who fell for the wrong woman and ended up monstrously deformed and agonizingly crippled for what (judging from Inque's lack of aging) may be a very long life, is pretty depressing.

* Again in Batman Beyond 2.0, it is revealed why the Bat-Family especially Bruce and Dick are not on good terms. [[spoiler:It's revealed that Barbara was still seeing Dick and was likely having an affair with Bruce hence the picture on the Batcomputer. Later Dick is planning to propose and Barbara likely feeling guilty goes to the Batcave to tell Bruce that she is seven weeks pregnant. Bruce congratulates her and Dick, but she reveals that the unborn child is his. Some time passes and Barbara is planning to tell Dick about the love child but witnesses a mugging. She goes to help fight them off which results in her getting injured (and judging by her position on the ground she is likely having a miscarrage) at the same time Bruce tells Dick about the affair and the love child resulting in Dick giving Bruce a NoHoldsBarredBeatDown.]]

** Fingers confronting Van Dyle about his mothers death, and Van Dyle's response about how ForMeItWasTuesday, but unusually for that trope, its not said with spite, just resignation. Van Dyle is a bit of a scumbag, but he's just a hunter, not a sociopathic supervillain. He just never thought of his prey as living beings with their own feelings.
