* InstantSedation: Subverted. Professor Pyg shoots Simon Stagg with a tranquilizer dart in the neck, but all it does is make him feel woozy and weak. Mr. Toad actually has to knock him out the rest of the way, courtesy of a walking stick to the head.

{{Toonami}} began running episodes starting on May 20th, 2014 [[https://twitter.com/Clarknova1/status/456570668268531713 with the production crew intent on airing all 26 episodes]]. In September, Cartoon Network explicitly forbade Toonami from ever airing the show again, forcing Toonami to air the final 7 episodes in a marathon on September 28th- the last day before CN's order went into effect. Cartoon Network then wrote off the show from their network, deeming it a financial failure and ending the series for good. Of the Batman animated series, ''Beware'' has the shortest run with only one season of 26 episodes.

* WatchingAVideoGame: The segment in "Games" where the characters have to stand on lighted tiles and jump to other ones when they start flickering is very reminiscint of certain platforming challenges.

** The relationship between Professor Pyg and Mister Toad was partially inspired by the anthropomorphic charm of ''{{The Wind in the Willows}}''.

** Fittingly, [[spoiler: the last shot of the series is Anarky playing with a chess set, with various Gotham characters represented as pieces. The Batman piece checkmates the Anarky piece. [[AndTheAdventureContinues Anarky then resets the board.]]]]

* MakeUpIsEvil: Magpie, especially with her ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow.

* RealityEnsues: The show does its best to give a more realistic feel to the series to show what Bruce would need to do to pull off Batman in real life, such as reducing his sleep and liquid meals. Also his Batcomputer usually comes up with a statistic on how realistic his chances are to pull off what he is about to do.

* RichIdiotWithNoDayJob: Who else? But it's clear that Tatsu fully believes Bruce Wayne is this and is pretty much the main reason she doesn't think highly of him.

* TookALevelInBadass: Anarky went from being a whiny minor villain in "Tests" to a guy who can take out three Assassins, steal [[spoiler: Ra's al Ghul's body]], and make a deal with Lady Shiva for [[spoiler: his]] return, and live by the time of "Sacrifice".
** He has also, [[spoiler: during his villainous gambit in the episode "Nexus"]], taken on Katana and Batman both to almost a ''standstill''- almost, meaning they do eventually pin them. [[spoiler: ...but not before he puts a proximity-activated bomb on each of their wrists, himself included.]]
*** [[spoiler: Did we mention his gambit involved bombing the mayor?]]

** And then there's Lunk Head. He used to be a basic (albeit strong) mook, but a fight with Batman left him comatose and damaged his brain. Nowadays he's basically a gigantic child who *wants* to be good, but is just a little too stupid and immature to control himself. At one point he's coerced into breaking out of jail (which he initially doesn't want to because he knows he's been bad and belongs there) with the promise of candy. And, once more with feeling, because it's [[CrapsackWorld that kind of show]] he doesn't even get the candy. Instead, he gets betrayed by his only friend and pushed off a ledge.
