** He crosses it for EvenEvilHasStandards territory when he kills Bob. ''Bob''. Fans still haven't forgiven him for that one.

** ComicBook/PostCrisis Jason Todd was hated by quite a few readers, to the point that fans eventually ''voted'' for him to be killed by the Joker. While an almost equal number of people voted to spare him (and at least three hundred of the votes [[VocalMinority were from the same caller]]), a LOT of people thought that the vote was for the first Robin, Dick Grayson, who was excessively popular amongst a lot of fans.

* EthnicScrappy: Chief Screaming Chicken, the embarassingly stereotypical Native American from "An Egg Grows in Gotham"/"The Yegg Foes in Gotham".

* AwardSnub: Anton Furst during his acceptance speech chided the Academy for not nominating Nicholson's role as The Joker. Became HilariousInHindsight 19 years later, when Heath Ledger won a posthumous one for the same role in ''Film/TheDarkKnight''.

** For that matter, Music/DannyElfman's score wasn't nominated.



* BadassDecay: Despite having a minor role and being not as trim and fit as in the comics, Commisioner Gordon is perfectly competent in the Burton movies, but in the Shumacher films he's turned into a joke.

** A behind-the-scenes example. Adam West and Burt Ward had to take certain pills to make sure their costumes didn't end up too revealing, due to the standards of 60s programming rules. Or as Creator/JoanCollins puts it "you couldn't see the outline of a gentleman's...[[UnusualEuphemism gentleman]]."

* NarmCharm: As cheesy as the Prince songs are, there's something fitting when it comes to seeing the Joker dancing around to both "Trust" and "Partyman" like a maniac given his PsychopathicManchild behavior.

Added DiffLines:

** Originally the love interest is Silver St. Cloud, but changed it to Vicki Vale because they thought the same sounded "too cheesy". But not for the writers of ''Series/{{Gotham}}''.

** The first season, even when being an AffectionateParody of the Superhero genre, was more of a DeconstructiveParody where AnyoneCanDie, the villains were DangerouslyGenreSavvy and the BigBudgetBeefUp could afford SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome that were seen in 'Film/BatmanTheMovie''. The second season exaggerates the parody and becomes an Indecisive parody, the villains suffered {{Flanderization}}, EverybodyLives and the budget is lower, giving place to {{Bottle Episode}}s that breaks the rule of ShowDontTell, there were {{Special Effect Failure}}s and {{Stock Footage Failure}}s The third season was the worst: the {{Flanderization}} is at its fullest, creating a StealthParody or RedundantParody, there were almost NoBudget, an episode with [[InvisibleMonsters Invisible Villains]] and not even the inclusion of Batgirl as MsFanservice could save the ratings.

* BaseBreaker: BaseBreakingCharacter:



** He actually is still a BaseBreaker; fans either love him or wish there was a second phone-in vote to kill him off again. This isn't helped by his very inconsistent portrayals; some writers portray him as a very angry young man with a good reason to be furious at Bruce and who desperately wants to prove that he's a better hero than him, but has a seriously skewed moral compass and sense of what heroism actually is, while others portray him as a one-dimensional modern-day NinetiesAntiHero with a side dose of {{Wangst}}. This has gotten worse ever since the New52 began and the comics started portraying him in a more consistently sympathetic light with a closer (though still a bit strained) relationship with the Batfamily: Some like the idea of Jason getting some positive character development and healing from his trauma, others think that the new direction does nothing but make him a KarmaHoudini and a canon example of DracoInLeatherPants and a third group likes the concept [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot but finds the execution rushed and forced more than anything]].
