* WinTheCrowd: Started off strong and kept going from there. The trades are still often bought at stores and fans are still itching for Steph to return (which she does in ''Comicbook/DCRebirth'').

* LesYay:
** When one of Barbara Gordon's male students sends a text message to Jen, the girl siting next to him in class, commenting that Barbara is hot, Jen clutches her phone to her chest and says "Yeah, she is."
** Apparently, ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} watches ''those'' types of college movies. You know, the ones with pillow fight and [[SlumberParty Slumber Parties]], and she is just dying to reenact them with Stephanie. Later, [[ItMakesSenseInContext after Dracula appears]], Supergirl [[DressedInLayers rips off her top to reveal her costume beneath it]].
--> '''Supergirl:''' "Aren't you gonna...you know..."\\
'''Batgirl:''' "Not unless you wanna see my bra."\\
'''Supergirl:''' "Does it have a bat on it?"
** After Wendy Harris begins to assist Oracle and Batgirl as Proxy, she begins to hallucinate seeing her dead brother Marvin, who tries to coach her through her physical and mental recuperation. Both Wendy and "Marvin" are pretty clear that this is a manifestation of Wendy's subconcious, not some sort of ghost or hologram, so when Marvin comments on how hot Barbara is Wendy can not help but wonder at what that says about herself and her mind.

*** It goes way further than that depending on how much between-the-lines reading you want to do. At the end of the issue, as Kara's saying she needs to go, Steph playfully asks "Please don't leave." The next panel is tagged "a few minutes later," and features Steph coming downstairs, her hair slightly more messed. When her mom asks her if she and her friend had a good time, Steph grins and says "the best" as we see Kara's exiting blur through the kitchen window. How'd they spend those "few minutes," I wonder?

* ReplacementScrappy: While this largely faded over time, her replacing Cass was not well-received at first, since Cass had already ate it due to Adam Beechen royally screwing up her character. The sole good thing to come from that was that Bruce Wayne adopted her... Then apparently died in ''FinalCrisis'', and Cass was PutOnABus. While Stephanie is popular among Cassandra Cain fans, the way she was replaced did not endear her to many of Cass' fans (it was eventually retconned that Cass was told to give up the Batgirl identity), especially due to the fact that DC replaced one of the few Asian superheroes with their own ongoing with a White, blonde, blue-eyed successor.

* HarsherInHindsight: A letter from the editor in one of the early issues says that, following the announcement of a new ''Batgirl'' title for 2009, DC may have [[LyingCreator stoked rumors that Barbara was somehow going to become Batgirl again]], but they never really gave it serious thought since Oracle was a way more interesting character, and they'd rather use someone new. [[ContinuityReboot Two]] [[Comicbook/{{New 52}} years]] [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2011}} later]]... On top of that, when Steph [[ComicBookDeath "died"]], she said that she was part of the Robin legacy and no one could ever take that away. [[Comicbook/{{New 52}} Well, apparently, DC is "nobody".]]

* [[FanHater Fan Hater/]]HateDumb: While Steph and her series is relatively popular, and continues to gain new fans even after the NewFiftyTwo, replacing Cass and being a WideEyedIdealist in a Comic Family mostly full of brooding cynics certainly put a few off picking up her series. While it didn't stop it from getting enough sales to keep it going until ''Flashpoint'' happened, there's a small group who absolutely hate her, her series, and her fans. Usually they can only be found on certain blogs and forums, and the occasional hate-art on Website/DeviantArt, but when you stumble upon them, you'll find many who hate her for the smallest of reasons, will make a very big deal about her series being cancelled (which they'll claim as 'proof' that she wasn't that popular), admit to never reading her book but call it crap anyway, and call her fans either whiney tweens (if they're girls) or stereotypical 30 year old basement dweller virgins (if they're boys). Reportedly, some people passed on recommendations for the series from comic book retailers on as little as 'its a girl's comic'.
