* 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]]).

* EscapistCharacter: Terry [=McGinnis=] is arguably the member of the Bat-family across all media who is most enviable. He's incredibly handsome, popular in school, is in a relationship with a pretty girl, and of course he gets to be Batman, and follow in the footsteps of what is both InUniverse and out of universe, a legendary superhero, forming an IntergenerationalFriendship with one of the greatest men of his time, and [[spoiler:secretly being his long-lost son]].

** Deanna Clay attempting to murder [[spoiler:Inque]], her own mother, solely to gain full access to her bank accounts. Sure, [[spoiler:Inque]] was a career criminal and gave Deanna up for adoption, but she clearly loved Deanna a lot, and obviously the feeling isn't mutual.

** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' is a Franchise/SpiderMan cartoon, it has the WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld premise, Terry is a wisecracking teenage superhero driven by his desire to atone for his past misdeeds and the death of a father figure, he also lives with a maternal figure (Aunt May[=/=] Terry's Mom) and he spends most of his time in an on-again off-again relationship with his girlfriend Dana Tan who's a party animal ][spoiler:who he later marries]] (much like MJ). He's effectively Peter Parker in the Batsuit. Even the RoguesGallery is pretty similar to Spidey's. (Inque = Sandman, Spellbinder = Mysterio, Stalker = Kraven, Shriek = Shocker, Blight = Green Goblin, etc.) Likewise, the Batman Beyond batsuit is aesthetically similar to Spider-Man's outfit, in that it's a full body suit with a face-covering cowl, unlike Batman who likes to show off his chin. It resembles Spider-Man's Symbiote outfit while the red bat logo fits the dominant colour in Spider-Man's outfit.

* 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.

* BrokenBase: The [[NoYay offscreen relationship between Bruce and Barbara]] had always been [[FanonDiscontinuity disliked on varying levels]] by the fandom (reasons usually including the fact that it was basically Batman entering a relationship with his foster son's ex-girlfriend - who was also the daughter of one of his closest allies, with that ally presumably not even being aware of it). However, the reveal in the ''Comicbook/BatmanBeyond'' comics that Bruce had impregnated Barbara just weeks before she had re-entered a seemingly happy relationship with Dick was very divisive. Some found it gutwrenching, and thought it appropriately explained why Bruce, Dick, and Barbara were estranged from one another for so long. Others thought it was too much like a bad soap opera, and that the Bruce-Barbara relationship should never have been revisited in the first place.

** Interestingly, when ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' and ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' came out many noted more than a few similarities between the MCU version and Batman Beyond. The hero is an apprentice to an OldSuperhero (Iron Man/Old Bruce) who designs his suit that provides him several upgrades and inner gadgets. He also recruits him by personally visiting his apartment where he lives with his maternal figure (and [[WelcomeToMyWorld brings him into his world]]) and the Hero passes his superhero activities as work for Mr. Wayne/Mr. Stark. He has a {{Sidekick}} who serves as confidant (Ned Leeds/Max) and his mentor sends him mixed messages about how they want him to be a superhero but also feel they aren't entirely ready and will ask for the suit back and respond with AngerBornOfWorry, and [[spoiler:at the end the hero is offered a spot in the Super Team (Avengers/JLU) but [[Recap/BatmanBeyondS3E10E11TheCall turns it down]] to remain solo]]).
