* TitlePlease: A variant: The episodes have title cards, but ''the show itself'' doesn't. WordOfGod is that they forgot to put it in.

* BatmanGambit: From the TropeNamer himself in "Lock-Up". When a trial for allegations of abuse to the inmates of Arkham Asylum by new head of security Lyle Bolton, none of the inmates brought in (Harley, Scarecrow, and The Ventriloquist/Scarface) seem to want to testify. Batman, who's attending as Bruce Wayne due to him appointing Bolton to the job in the first place, says that they should keep Bolton in charge for another year and a half. This leads to all of the inmates present to plead for him not to and exposes Bolton's crimes.

** Batman himself starts out as anti-heroic yet optimistic, and is friendly towards his allies, but he grows more [[TheStoic cold and pragmatic]] throughout the entire Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse. His relentless dedication to fighting crime at the cost of his own happiness, as well as his increasingly standoffish personality alienates many of his friends and love interests, which leads to him becoming the bitter, old recluse seen in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.

* ComplexityAddiction: A recurring feature, but particularly showcased in "Almost Got 'Im", the episode where several villains swap stories about how they almost got Batman. In nearly every case, they would have got him easily if they'd been straightforward about it instead of going for an elaborate and artistic doom involving hummingbirds with poison-tipped beaks, giant pennies, or whatever.

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks:
** In "On Leather Wings," when Batman confronts Dr. Kirk Langstrom, there's a long table covered in lab glassware, in particular two huge globes of purple liquid that connect to one another and nothing else, seemingly serving no purpose. Langstrom uses nothing on the table, instead taking the formula he uses to become [=ManBat=] out of his LabCoatOfScienceAndMedicine. When he transforms, he of course smashes everything on the table, then picks up the table itself and throws it at Batman for good measure.
** An ever more complicated-looking array of flasks, test tubes and beakers connected by spiraling glass tubes is seen in "Terror in the Sky." Oddly, all the liquid in them is green (perhaps the colorists were lazy). Once again, Langstrom doesn't do anything with them, but at least this time, they don't get smashed.

** "The Joker's Wild": An entrepreneur opens a casino in Gotham City based on the Joker's likeness and gimmicks. Joker is so incensed that a complete stranger would try to "cash in on my image" that he plots to blow the casino up. Ironically, [[spoiler:the entire point of the entrepreneur cashing in on Joker's image was that he ''wanted'' Joker to come and trash the place. The entire place was set up for an insurance scam]]. Too bad for him, the Joker eventually decided he would rather kill the guy and run the place himself...
