* BaseBreaker:
** Max. Fan reactions to her introduction ranged from considering her the best part of the series and thinking she was sold short (and often accompanied by [[FanPreferredCouple shipping her with Terry]]) to considering her the worst character yet and hoping that she'd just die and stop taking screentime away from everyone else. Her BaseBreaker status also extends to the development team; according to [[WordOfGod Bruce Timm]], some of the writers were unhappy about her inclusion and used Bruce Wayne to voice their own opinions of her, while Alan Burnett at least wanted to [[PromotedToLoveInterest promote her to]] LoveInterest.

* SoBadItsGood: The episode "Out of the Past" is arguably one of the darkest and most depressing in the series... but it starts out with one of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2p02DfyzCE most ridiculously-goofy examples]] of StylisticSuck in a cartoon. Complete with a lampshade from [[DeadpanSnarker Bruce]].
--> '''Bruce''': You hate me, don't you?

Added DiffLines:

* HeReallyCanAct: At the time of the series, Will Friedle was best known for his comedic role on ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld''. While Terry never had any shortage of snarky one-liners, Friedle gave some pretty memorable dramatic performances (such as Terry mourning the loss of his father).

** The Jokerz who steal the prototype plane in Joyrides and brutally attack their rival gang with it, leaving property damage and alot of critically injured gang members. They end up laughing the whole time and don't feel any remorse for it.

* ShipSinking: This series pretty much sank every romantic relationship Bruce Wayne ever had by showing that no matter who he dated or was implied to have dated or even could have dated his obsession with being Batman always came first and he ultimately ended up alone. It didn't matter if his options were morally ambiguous antagonists like Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Talia Al Guhl or true blue pure of heart heroines like WonderWoman, he either wouldn't give them what they wanted or he couldn't, and in the end they left him behind while he went on trying to be Batman for as long as he possibly could until he literally could no longer do it and ultimately he got nothing in return for his own hard work.

** The hint of a Bruce and Barbara relationship is widely panned as unneccessary.

** A lot of fans felt this way about the idea that Bruce Wayne dated Barbara Gordon after she and Dick Grayson broke up.

** A lot of fans felt this way about the idea that Bruce Wayne dated Barbara Gordon after she and Dick Grayson broke up. Dick certainly thought so, and it's apparently the reason they never got back together after his return.

* CompleteMonster: Besides SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', the series itself has one in Blight, AKA Derek Powers, a CorruptCorporateExecutive and the ArchEnemy of Terry. In order to test his latest chemical weapon, Powers purposefully infected Harry Tully, a member of his staff, with it. When Tully leaks the information to Terry’s father, Warren, Powers had Warren murdered to cover it up. Later, Powers sold the weapon to a Kaznian diplomat who wanted to wipe out resistance on his border. To promote his product, Powers showed the diplomat pictures of [[BodyHorror Tully’s gradual death at the hands of the chemical]]. Other crimes include committing industrial sabotage, exiling his son, and polluting the ocean by dumping radioactive waste into it. He played a part in [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Mr. Freeze]]'s tragic demise as well; he used Freeze as a guinea pig to cure his own condition and when Freeze wanted revenge, Blight brutally crippled Freeze with his radiation. He’s also responsible for the creation of the super villain, Shriek, who he hired to assassinate Bruce Wayne for getting in the way of his plans to bulldoze Gotham's historical district for profit. There's also his response to Terry's use of YouKilledMyFather as a hint to Batman's real identity:

** The Jokerz are a gang of youths inspired by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker to commit crimes, including murder. Well, we ended up getting a real life example with the infamous 2012 theater shooting in Colorado - and the theater was showing ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''.

** The hint of a Bruce and Barbara relationship is widely panned as unneccessary, and comes across for many as CharacterDerailment for both.
