** A slight case with Mr. Freeze, who's now more of an elemental than a guy with PoweredArmor and a FreezeRay. All he has to do is raise his hand to cause mini-blizzards, and [[AttackItsWeakPoint smashing his "helmet"]] no longer guarantees victory, since he can re-grow the crystals in an instant.

* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Everyone seems to call him "The Batman," presumably because he has very little public consciousness at the time and thus is seen more as an entity rather than an individual.

Creator/KidsWB even lampshaded this in one of its promo spots, where Batman socks the Joker and shoots a DeathGlare at the narrator [[DisproportionateRetribution for forgetting the "the"]].

* WeaponizedExhaust: How Mr. Freeze was ultimately beaten in his debut. Batman uses it a few more times in the series, but usually not to such great effect.

** The tie-in comic seems to imply he was a military experiment, though it's very obscure and those who know about it apply FanonDiscontinuity as they please.

* AdaptationalBadass:
** The Penguin benefited the most from this, being transformed from a guy with a deformity using gimmicky umbrellas into an {{Acrofatic}} martial artist who happens to be a criminal mastermind to boot. And somehow has control over the kabuki twins.
** ComicBook/TheJoker also got this treatment, especially early on. His overall design (he started out barefoot) and way of movement made him seem more like a criminally-insane Tarzan (it helps that his first outfit was a straitjacket with tie-dyed sleeves); his ape-like nature lent itself to his fighting style. Later on, he became more like his WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries incarnation, standing up straighter, wearing the trademark purple suit (though he still goes shoe-free) and generally acting more like that incarnation. On the other hand, he does go the extra mile to inflict his own brand of MindRape.



** "Attack of the Terrible Trio" sees the titular trio use versions of the serum Kirk Langstrom used to make himself Man-Batman, as opposed to be normal people in the costumes as in the comics.

* AdaptationDistillation: Several villains including Clayface, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, and Professor Hugo Strange, who was featured as a major villain for most of the show. While the ''B:TAS'' version of Clayface was as at most sympathetic, ''The Batman'' made him to be an outright tragic figure.

* AdaptationOriginConnection: In the "Vertigo" episode, Count Vertigo was an ex-employee of Queen industries and the cause of Oliver being stranded on an island, leading him to become the ComicBook/GreenArrow, rather than an accident like the comics.

** Wrath and Scorn are a case of "KnightTemplar [[GoodCannotComprehendEvil Cannot Comprehend]] ChaoticEvil. They honestly believe Joker is just trying to make a living. As such, they expect him to free them from the police, especially since they now know who Batman and Robin are. [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork Their mistake costs them. Dearly.]]

* FromNobodyToNightmare: Killer Moth started out as some pathetic schmo in a badly designed costume who was basically TheLoad. That was until he accidentally gets mutated into an actual giant killer moth.

** Judging from [[https://youtu.be/09FOx0pyuqw this brief scene in "Strange Minds"]], it's heavily implied that ''The Joker'' of all people was this.
