** Willie Watt.
** Carter Wilson/Terminal
** Jim Tate/Armory

to:

** Willie Watt.
Watt. A puny nerd relentlessly bullied in school, humiliated by the girl of his dreams, gets no care or understanding from his father's toxic masculinity- who expresses constant disappointment in Willie being a wimp, before finally being humiliated in front of the school at a dance. He uses a giant robot to go on a rampage at the school (with lots of undertones from real life school shootings). Things only get worse after he's arrested and ''nobody'' comes to visit him in prison. Ever.
** Carter Wilson/Terminal
Wilson/Terminal. A top-notch and brilliant student who's still constantly scolded as a failure by his parents for not being the ''absolute highest'' performing student at the school. He's long since snapped, joining the Jokerz (and being exceptionally violent and unstable even for them) to blow off steam; eventually launching a campaign to kill Max for ''scoring higher than him on a test.''
** Jim Tate/ArmoryTate/Armory. An honest businessman and skilled weapons engineer dumped by his company after a buyout, screwed out of his retirement, can't find another job due to a lagging economy, and is the sole breadwinner for his family. He takes a job building weapons for mercenaries to continue making ends meet.

** In another LifeImitatesArt, the prologue in "Rebirth" is implied to take place during the mid-to-late-2010s and Commissioner James Gordon and Alfred Pennyworth have implied to passed away, then cut to the real world's 2010s, when in 2014 Gordon's voice actor Bob Hastings and Alfred's voice actor Efrem Zimbalist Jr. passed away. The DCAU's Gordon and Alfred have died in in both their universe's 2010s and the real world's 2010s.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: On its announcement and launch, many disliked the idea (a future-Batman who wasn't Bruce Wayne or any of the Robins, and one in high school) on basic principle, and even more the notion that it was set in the continuity to ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' (with many seeing TNBA as a weak follow-up and wanting a true sequel series). It became far and away the most successful [[LegacyCharacter legacy]] adaptation for DC, embraced by audiences of both the classic and new Batman, and seen to sit side-by-side with Creator/FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' as a "future Batman" story with ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'' in particular considered not only one of the best DCAU films (if not the best) but one of the greatest Batman and Joker stories period, with many parts of it being adapted again in the ''Franchise/BatmanArkhamSeries''. Terry [=McGinnis=] also came to be embraced as a worthy successor to Batman in the mode of Wally West and Kyle Rayner.

*** [[spoiler:Ra's actions are even more horrific than they might seem at first. Talia isn't just some disposable vessel Ra's birthed for this exact purpose, she's probably the only person in the entire world he actually cared about and one of the few who might be able to talk him down. Killing Talia shows just how far the man has fallen over the years and just how desperate to remain alive he's become.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[{{Jerkass}} Derek Powers]], also known as [[PoisonousPerson Blight]], is a CorruptCorporateExecutive and the ArchEnemy of Terry. Seizing control of Wayne Enterprises and using it for illegal operations, he developed a chemical weapon for terrorists that an employee named Harry Tully leaked to Terry’s father, Warren. Powers purposefully infected Harry Tully, later showing the Kaznian diplomat who bought the shipment [[BodyHorror Tully’s gradual death at the hands of said chemical]]. Powers had his right-hand man murder Warren and [[FrameUp frame The Jokerz]]. Infected by the chemical, he was saved but mutated by the radiation used, driving him insane in the process. Other crimes include committing industrial sabotage; hiring supervillain Shriek to murder Bruce Wayne then try to drive him insane; [[AbusiveParents exiling his own son]]; polluting the ocean by dumping radioactive waste into it; and experimenting, then later killing, [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Mr. Freeze]]. When his illegal dealings and mutations are publicly exposed, he goes into hiding, later attempting to [[OffingTheOffspring murder]] his [[TheStarscream treacherous son]] and Batman before seemingly getting himself killed. A [[TheSociopath sociopath]] motivated by {{greed}}, power and wealth, Derek Powers was such a monster before becoming Blight that when Batman used YouKilledMyFather as a hint to his identity, he snarls at how "[[ButForMeItWasTuesday little]]" that narrows it down.

* TheScrappy: Not a whole lot of fans liked Matt Mcginnis on the show, as his appearances often had him just acting like a typical AnnoyingYoungerSibling BrattyHalfPint without offering anything else.

** More than a few viewers found that the third season made both Dana and Max less annoying that than the viewers found them in the second season.

* FanPreferredCouple: [[DatingCatwoman Terry and Melanie]] and [[PlatonicLifePartners Terry and Max]] are in the running for the top spot, if fanfiction is any indication. Alan Burnett even tried to pair Max and Terry in one episode, to the objections of Timm, who had had no such intention when he proposed the episode ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAheG04f9B8 Here at 1:55]]).
