* IncrediblyLamePun: There are a ''lot'' of these in the earlier episodes (usually on the part of villains). It gets toned down in later seasons.

* ViewerFriendlyInterface: The Batwave display on Bruce's cell phone is rather large and prominent for a bit of iconography linked to his SecretIdentity.

* SkewedPriorities: Rojas is more focused on trying to catch Batman than deal with the supervillains Batman fights against.

* SkewedPriorities: Rojas is more focused on trying to catch Batman than deal with the supervillains Batman fights against. Joker's so incensed at the idea that he kidnaps and tortures Ethan Bennet for it.



* TheVoiceless: Penguin's Kabuki Twins, and the Joker's henchmen, Punch and Judy. Lampshaded in one episode where Joker is telling them his plan, in which one of them [[spoiler: Actually Clayface]] questions the plan further, which the Joker continues before realizing

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: While most villains who came into great power were pieces of work before then, this is still used occasionally, particularly with Clayface, with whom it's all but outright stated that the use of his power causes him to becomes unhinged, unstable and destructive, unless he works ''very'' hard at controlling himself (which fails. A lot).

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: There's plenty of cartoony violence and brutality going on, but anything even remotely indicated to be fatal is reserved for non-humans, even if they indicate self-awareness.

** Phosphorous is another good example, with his developing nuclear powers not meshing well at all with a short-temper and a bad attitude.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Once Commissioner Gordon takes command, Chief Rojas is never seen or mentioned again. It's likely implied that Gordon demoted or transferred him.

* EntertaininglyWrong: A couple of far-future archaeologists who are excavating the Batcave have a few conclusions like this. They think Oracle's wheelchair belonged to Alfred, for example, and after seeing a portrait of the Wayne family (Bruce and his parents), they conclude that Thomas Wayne was Batman, and Bruce was Robin.

* BrotherChuck:
** Detective Ellen Yin never appeared after the second season. She's only even mentioned in one episode set in the future, though she has a pretty awesome apparent future. Likewise, Chief Rojas isn't seen or mentioned since Season 2. A mention in the episode "Artifacts" hints that like her comic counterpart, [[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns Ellen Yindel]], she'll replace Gordon as Commissioner.
** Marion Grange had gotten reelected as Gotham's Mayor in Season 3, but by the time we see the mayor of Gotham again (in Season 5), Grange was replaced by Hamilton Hill.
** The Kabuki Twins eventually just stop appearing.

** Wrath and Scorn suffer this via Joker gas. They knew who Batman and Robin were, but Joker gasses them as he refuses to let anyone take away the fun of defeating Batman from him.

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

** Wrath and Scorn immensely as they "fight for the rights of innocent criminals trying to make a living".
